    ROME, October 31, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The Vatican today announced it will be issuing a special postage stamp depicting Luther at the foot of the Cross, to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The 1.00 euro postage stamp issued by the Holy See’s Philatelic Office depicts in the foreground Jesus Crucified, and in the background “a golden and timeless view of the city of Wittenberg,” the Vatican’s description read. It continued: “With a penitential disposition, kneeling respectively on the left and right of the cross, Martin Luther holds the Bible, source and destination of his doctrine, while...

    Bergoglio Vatican celebrates Protestant Revolt with a stamp This is just revolting. They do not even pretend it is not a true celebration of Luther, as the reproduction of the hagiographic image of Luther and Melanchton makes clear. This is the same hierarchy that expels its precious few young people from Brussels Cathedral for praying the Holy Rosary in front of a Lutheran pastor -- the beads are probably a "microagression" that "offends" heretics. *** What truly happened on October 31, 1517? On All Hallows' Eve, a perverted monk in Upper Saxony, possessed by the prince of darkness, divided Christendom...

    The Irish postal service releases a stamp tomorrow commemorating the iconic monster The postal service in the Republic of Ireland has decided to honor psychopathic mass-murdering communist Ernesto Che Guevara with a 1.00 (one euro) postage stamp on the 50th anniversary of his death. The decision was approved by Irelands cabinet, which didnt bother to submit the matter to the Oireachtas, the countrys parliament. The promotion of Che Guevara as some kind of folk hero is nothing new; college campuses are filled with students unironically wearing Che tee-shirts, Frank Camp writes at the Daily Wire. Unfortunately, much like a cockroach,...

    In anticipation of a solar eclipse that will cross 14 states and more than 1,100 cities this summer, the U.S. Postal Service has issued a commemorative stamp that changes from total eclipse to full moon from the heat of a finger. The stamp, which will be unveiled at the University of Wyoming with NASA scientists in attendance, will be available for sale nationwide starting Tuesday. With the release of these amazing stamps using thermochromic ink, weve provided an opportunity for people to experience their own personal solar eclipse every time they touch the stamps, Jim Cochrane, the postal services chief...

    USPS uses "thermochromic" ink for first time. Struggling at a time when more people write emails than drop letters in the mailbox, or pay their bills online instead of licking a stamp to send in the check, the United States Postal Service has been trying all sorts of ways to keep the postage stamp alive. The latest innovation is a first-of-its-kind stamp that changes when you touch it.The Postal Service announced the upcoming issue of its Total Solar Eclipse Forever stamp, which commemorates the August 21 eclipse. The stamp transforms into an image of the Moon from the heat...

The trope isnt entirely Hollywood fantasy, but the reality of emerging tattoo recognition technology is closer to a dystopian tech thriller. Soon,...

    When a crystal lattice is excited by a laser pulse, waves of jostling atoms can travel through the material at close to one sixth the speed of light, or approximately 28,000 miles/second. Scientists now have a new tool to take movies of such superfast movement in a single shot. Researchers from Japan have developed a new high-speed camera that can record events at a rate of more than 1-trillion-frames-per-second. That speed is more than one thousand times faster than conventional high-speed cameras. Called STAMP, for Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography, the new camera technology "holds great promise for studying a...

    WASHINGTON - Power outages left many wondering who turned out the lights in D.C. on Tuesday-- including OprahWinfrey. The power went off at D.C.'s Warner Theatre, right in the middle of Ms. Winfrey's speech honoring Maya Angelou. Winfrey was part of the dedication ceremony of a new U.S. Postal Service Forever Stamp that honors Angelou. "I am honored to be here to stand her as her daughter, sister-friend at the unveiling of the Maya Forever-- FOREVER-- stamp," Winfrey said, and then the lights went out.

    Maya Angelou was known for her inspirational and thought-provoking quotes, so it's only fitting that a stamp commemorating her features one. A new postage stamp that was unveiled in a dedication ceremony Tuesday morning celebrating the late literary icon aimed to do just that. It features her image with the quote, "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." Except that quote ... isn't Angelou's.

    The task was to re-launch The Sunday Times STYLE magazine. Rather than just making an ad campaign, we created a piece of editorial for the newspaper inventing 'The 50 Best Dressed People in the World. From this we developed the Fashion Royalty campaign and created an iconic series of portraits combining the images of historical royal figures with esteemed members of the fashion world Victoria Beckham, UK HipHop act Tinie Tempah and Kate Moss.

    The classic Madonna and Child postal stamps are now available at the post office. Support Western Civ and our traditional culture and purchase them! They are particularly lovely this year. Does anyone remember that one was able to order Christmas cards to match the stamps? I recall my grandmother having such cards imprinted.

    According to a report from the BBC, gay rights activist Harvey Milk has been honored on a new U.S. postage stamp. The stamp was unveiled at the White House on Thursday. In a description of the stamp, the U.S. Postal Service says that Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, making him one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States. Tragically, his career in public office was cut short when he and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were assassinated. The photo featured on the stamp is one of Milk taken in...

    The United States Postal Service has announced that former NRA President Charlton Heston will be honored with his own stamp. The stamp is part of their Legends of Hollywood series, and while the specific issue date has not yet been determined, it will be issued sometime in 2014. Heston was a five term president of the National Rifle Association from 1998 to 2003. He was a tireless advocate for Second Amendment rights and will always be remembered by the NRA faithful for his cold, dead hands speech delivered at the 2000 NRA Annual Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Food stamp redemption at military grocery stores, or commissaries, has nearly doubled since the beginning of the Great Recession, topping out at $103.6 million in FY 2013, from $31.1 million in FY 2008. While the amount of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, or food stamps, have soared over the past five years, the rate of increase has slowed, according to data from the Defense Commissary Agency and published by CNN Money Monday. From FY 2009 to FY 2010 the level of spending jumped from $52.9 million to $72.8 million; from FY 2010 to FY 2011 the amount of SNAP benefits...

    If you have letters or bills to mail, you might want to rush. Saturday is the last day when it will cost you 46 cents. Starting Sunday, you'll pay more -- 49 cents. On Sunday, the cost of mailing a post card will also go up to 34 cents, a 1-cent increase. The current rate hike brings a much-needed cash influx to the financially struggling postal service. Much of its cash problems stem from a congressional mandate to make annual $5 billion payments for future retiree health care benefits.

    Food pantries and food banks struggled to meet demand this Thanksgiving, just weeks after food stamp cuts for millions of Americans took effect. On Nov. 1, the 47 million people who rely on food stamps also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) saw a decrease in benefits when Congress allowed a 2009 program funding boost to expire. As a result, a family of four will receive $36 less in food stamps in November and each month thereafter, according to the USDA. All of our food banks have really ratcheted up what they have had to serve,...

    On Nov. 1, sizable cuts were gouged into the federal food-stamp program (or, as its now called, SNAP, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), which feeds 47.6 million people, or nearly one in six Americans. In the city, 1.9 million folks get the bulk of their Jell-O and Campbells Soup from stamps. But ...it wasnt heartless Republicans who triggered the cuts. Rather, some of the food-stamp cash was snatched to pay for Michelle Obamas pet project, Lets Move...

    Oct. 28, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Benjamin Franklin famously quipped, In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. Franklin evidently failed to envisage todays postmodern left. For the conservative, there exists at least one other certainty, and it is this: The degree to which progressives attack you corresponds precisely to the degree with which you challenge any among their assorted, distorted and sordid sacred cows. What would you call a 33-year-old man who both had and axiomatically acted upon a deviant sexual appetite for underage, drug-addicted, runaway boys? (No, not Jerry Sandusky.) What would you...
