    September 21, 2010 BOULDER—The biblical account of the parting of the Red Sea has inspired and mystified people for millennia. A new computer modeling study by researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) shows how the movement of wind as described in the book of Exodus could have parted the waters. The computer simulations show that a strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have pushed water back at a bend where an ancient river is believed to have merged with a coastal lagoon along the Mediterranean Sea. With the water...

    MOUNT CLEMENS – Some people still take off right after Communion at St. Peter Church, but not as many now that they have to walk under signs that read "Judas left early too." Fr. Cooney says putting the signs up at each of the three exits was "a bit of Irish diplomacy" aimed at addressing a long-standing source of frustration for many Catholic priests: people who leave Mass early, rather than staying for the dismissal. Perhaps one of the reasons the signs had a positive effect is that he introduced them with humor, rather than scolding the congregation, he believes....

    Charles gives US a parting shot By Caroline Davies in San Francisco (Filed: 09/11/2005) San Francisco is the Prince of Wales's "kinda place". He loves its public transport, declaring yesterday: "I'm so glad you still have the wonderful evocative sounds of the trams." That had not changed in the 29 years since the prince was last here, and made him "sad" that Britain had so few left. He was, undoubtedly, thrilled when the mayor, Gavin Newsom, pointed out that his city had the best electrified public transport system in America and a fleet of 1,000 alternative fuel vehicles. It is...

    When the 84th Minnesota Legislature convenes at noon today, it will be the most evenly divided in at least half a century -- with 101 DFLers, 99 Republicans and one Independence Party member. Coming after last year's stalemate, that mix raises the question: Can the legislators come together and produce results? The situation was markedly similar on Jan. 5, 1971, when there were razor-thin partisan divides in both chambers and a popular young governor. That year, predictions of a legislative train wreck seemed fulfilled when Republican legislative leaders stared down DFL Gov. Wendell Anderson through a costly special session that...

    Parting Company Is An Option by Walter E. Williams My last essay in Ideas On Liberty, "How Did We Get Here?", provided clear evidence that Congress, the White House, as well as the Courts, had vastly exceeded powers delegated to them by our Constitution. To have an appreciation for the magnitude of the usurpation, one need only read Federalist Paper 45, where James Madison the acknowledged father of our Constitution explained, "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Governments are numerous and indefinite. The...

    Study: Red Sea Parting Possible By Jennifer Viegas, Discovery News Feb. 2, 2004 ? The parting of the Red Sea and the subsequent escape of thousands of Jewish slaves, which is described in the Bible's book of Exodus, can be explained by science, according to two Russian researchers. The study, published in the Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences, is one of the first to examine the event using oceanography, weather patterns, and mathematical calculations. Naum Volzinger, senior researcher at the St. Petersburg Institute of Oceanology, and colleague Alexei Androsov of Hamburg, determined that a reef runs from Egypt...
