2014'S MOST NOTABLE QUOTE IS “I CAN'T BREATHE” "I can't breathe!"—the exclamation made by Eric Garner while in a police chokehold—was chosen as the most notable quote of the year in an annual list released by a Yale University librarian. It was one of several quotes chosen for the list that reflect tumult over race in America in 2014. Fred Shapiro, an associate director at Yale Law School's library, says he had already completed the list without Garner's quote but revised it as protests grew following a grand jury's decision last week to not indict a white officer in his death. "These are not necessarily quotes I agree with or quotes I think are eloquent or admirable," Shapiro says, but rather those that reflect the spirit of the times. HERE’S THE ENTIRE LIST 1. "I can't breathe!" — Eric Garner, videotaped exclamation while being held by a policeman in New York, July 17. 2. "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee." — Bridget Anne Kelly, an aide to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, in an .. ...

This is obviously not a photo that is related to nature or wildlife photography but I was on my home from shooting wildflowers the other evening and stopped to get a few shots of this well-known structure in downtown Knoxville. The Church Street Methodist congregation originally formed in 1816. It had several different buildings over the years. In 1928 planning was initiated for a new, larger building. Architect John Russell Pope of New York City was hired to design the new facility, in cooperation with local architect Charles I. Barber of the Knoxville firm of Barber & McMurry. The design was similar to several other Gothic Revival buildings that Pope’s firm had designed, including buildings on the Yale University campus and churches in Larchmont and New Rochelle, New York, and Columbus, Ohio. Construction was started on this structure in 1930 and the first worship service was held in January 1931.

"After obtaining a doctorate degree in English Literature, she began her teaching career. It was in her role as a teacher that hooks felt she was doing her most important work. She knew that for a people historically and legally denied the right to education, teaching was one of the most substantial forms of political resistance she could choose. After holding various positions at the University of California in Santa Cruz, California, in the early 1980s, hooks left for Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, when she had the opportunity to teach in African American Studies. In 1988 she joined the faculty at Oberlin College, in Ohio, where she would teach in Women's Studies, a program that now offered the critique of racism that was absent during her undergraduate years. Taking a post with the City College of New York in 1995, hooks moved to the Henry Holt publishing company and came out with Killing Rage: Ending Racism, a book that calls for a more proactive approach (initiative) to solving the prob . ...

Ocampo finally breaks silence on Kenyan cases Radio Netherlands, Friday Immediate former prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC), Louis Moreno-Ocampo has finally broken his silence on the Kenyan cases at The Hague which he initiated and presided up to confirmation stage. Ocampo, who now lives in New York teaching law at the Yale university, spoke to the Radio Netherlands at The Hague. The interview was conducted two weeks ago but broadcast on Thursday this week. In the candid question and answer session, the Argentinian prosecutor reveals he was under pressure from some diplomats in Nairobi to request judges at the ICC to declare Uhuru and Ruto unfit to run in the General Election in March last year, but declined to do so “as the election was entirely a Kenyan affair.” While absolving retired President Kibaki and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga from involvement in 2007/8 election violence, the Argentinian prosecutor alleges he had “marginal” evidence on complicity of former First L ...
Poet Amiri Baraka, Founder of the Black Arts movement, die at the age of 79. His death was attributed to "failing health." A political activist, poet, playwright, and critic, Amiri Baraka was one of the most important and controversial African American literary voices. "Amiri Baraka believed poetry to be a process of discovery of one's inner feelings. Like the projectivist poets, he has always been of the opinion that the poetic writing should follow the shape of writer's own breath. He wrote in his 1965 nationalist poem, "Black Art," a manifesto for the movement: "We want 'poems that kill. /Assassin poems, Poems that shoot / guns. Poems that wrestle cops into alleys / and take their weapons leaving them dead / with tongues pulled out and sent to Ireland. Baraka taught at both Yale University and George Washington University, and was a professor emeritus at Stony Brook University of New York. His recognition include awards and fellowships from National Endowment for the Arts, Guggenheim Foundation, Rockef ...

He enrolled at Yale University in 1921 and at The Art Student's League in New York in 1925.

By the late 1940's, Rothko was considered a seminal figure in the Abstract ex-pressionist movement. Rothko's images became abstract under the influence of the European Surrealist's, and like the Surrealists, he was interested in mythology and universal symbols. By the late 1940's, Rothko had established his signature style of rectangular forms defined by an irregular, undefined edge painted on a one-color field. Celebrated for his use of color, Rothko develo ...

Prevent PMS with yogurt Up to 80 percent of women will struggle with premenstrual syndrome and its uncomfortable symptoms, report Yale researchers. The reason: Their nervous systems are sensitive to the ups and downs in estrogen and progesterone that occur naturally every month. But snacking on 2 cups of yogurt a day can slash these symptoms by 48 percent, say researchers at New York ’s Columbia University . “Yogurt is rich in calcium, a mineral that naturally calms the nervous system, preventing painful symptoms even when hormones are in flux,” explains Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a professor of gynecology at Yale University .

Singer Rudy Vallee turned it into a hit in 1927 and Bing Crosby topped the charts with it just two years after me. Count Basie, Perry Como, Elvis Presley and the Stattler Brothers were among the many others who lent their vocals to the tune. oxo, Monica

The First Prayer in Congress has an important message for today. Everyone joined together to pray, despite their religious differences, as an act of solidarity when they were really in trouble... "An oath of secrecy bound the members; sessions were to be held behind closed doors. These were wise precautions; although our knowledge of their proceedings is scanty, we know that the deliberations were not always harmonious and dispassionate. On Sept. 6 a rupture was avoided only by the political skill and whole-hearted earnestness of Samuel Adams. His colleague, Cushings, had moved that meetings should be opened with prayer. To this John Jay of New York and Rutledge of South Carolina objected, since diversity of creed made it impracticable. Then rose the sturdy and artful Puritan and, declaring that "he was no bigot," suggested that on the following morning prayer should be offered by Mr Duche' the local Episcopal clergyman. Adams' motion prevailed, and one snag to cooperation was removed. And when, on the m ...

Mad Cows, Mad Wildlife & The Rise Of Alzheimer's Disease In North America By Colm Kelleher PhD 6-12-5 (1) The number of deaths from Alzheimer,s Disease has increased by more than 9000% in North America since 1979. In 1979 only 653 people died from Alzheimer,s Disease. By 2004, that number jumped to 60,000. About 5 million North Americans currently have Alzheimer's Disease. (2) A study from Yale University showed that approximately 5% of Alzheimer's Disease patients were incorrectly diagnosed. The patients actually had Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD). One variant of CJD is caused by eating the beef from mad cows. (3) The infectious agents in mad cow disease, CJD, and other wildlife brain wasting diseases are called 'prions' and are almost indestructible. Normal sterilization of surgical instruments will not kill them. Patients have died from procedures using prion-contaminated surgical instruments. (4) A September 2004 survey of pathologists in California showed that more than 70% were reluctant to conduct ...
