One of the lesser-considered outrages committed by the Nazis during World War II was the confiscation of cultural artifacts from plundering. Among these great works of stolen art were many that were stashed away and never recovered. Others were destroyed, either inadvertently or intentionally. Russia's Amber Room-literally an entire showcase space made almost entirely of amber-was one such great work that was taken and then lost by the Nazis after their failed invasion of Russia.
Ruth Ellis, the last woman executed in Britain before it abolished capital punishment, was a bleached-blonde party-girl.

The National Research Council's (NRC) February 2012 report on Managing for High-Quality Science and Engineering at the NNSA National Security Laboratories is the latest in a series of studies that lament the state of science and engineering (S&E) and the management of S&E in the Department of Energy (DOE) Nuclear Weapons Complex. To date, the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) vision for transforming the Nuclear Weapons Complex has focused on site closures, consolidating foot prints, and more recently the consolidation of Management and Operating (M&O) contracts at facilities like the Y-12 National Security Complex, Pantex, and the Savannah River Tritium Operations. This is the first in a series of articles that argues that NNSA's vision of transformation should be broadened to include organizational transformation.

Part 2 of a 3 part series about the home recording process. In part one I outlined the basic gear needed for producing music at home. In this second article we discuss the process of recording. What kind of signals we strive to capture on tape or disk. How we use the different kinds of microphones in our mic closet. What happens along each stage of the signal chain and how to care for the signal as it travels from the musical instrument and through the gear. I also discuss what to watch out for so your signals don't get damaged on their way to being recorded.
Fiction writers frequently plumb headlines for story or character ideas. Many of crime fiction's best known figures and plot devices are based upon real criminals and criminal events. Albert Fish, the cannibal and killer of children, has echoes in one of the best-known literary characters of recent history, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Hostilities with the United States government, and with the people who had wronged the Saints in Missouri and Illinois and other places, came to a head on September 11, 1857, when Mormons (disguised as generally peaceful Paiute Indians) slaughtered, without provocation, an entire wagon train of settlers bound for California.
Problems in doctor-patient communication have been occurring for many decades, but it has not been until recently that scholars have begun to focus on these problems. It is common in medical interviews to see the doctors doing specific verbal and nonverbal actions to move the medical interview along without showing concern for the patient's feelings and concerns.

This segment travels between 1930 and 1949 and I believe is a trip worth taking. You may recall times and tunes that you thought were lost forever. Enjoy!
