  • The American Flag Daily: The Stars And Stripes Increased

    The American Flag Daily ^ | January 13, 2014 | FlagBearer
    On this date in 1794, President George Washington signed a measure making the first changes to the American flag, by ordering the stars and stripes to be increased by two each, to symbolize the admissions of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. The 15-star, 15-stripe flag would remain the standard for the United States for 23 years, until the admission of five more states would bring the next changes to the flag, reverting the number of stripes to a permanent 13 but increasing the stars for each state admitted thereafter.

    Jupiter has lost one of its iconic red stripes and scientists are baffled as to why. The largest planet in our solar system is usually dominated by two dark bands in its atmosphere, with one in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere. However, the most recent images taken by amateur astronomers have revealed the lower stripe known as the Southern Equatorial Belt has disappeared leaving the southern half of the planet looking unusually bare. The band was present in at the end of last year before Jupiter ducked behind the Sun on its orbit. However, when it...

    NEW YORK — The devil, as they say, is in the details. So when an astute stamp collector recently discovered that one of the Old Glorys in the U.S. Postal Service's "Flags 24/7" series appears to have 14 stripes, it was bound to send a wave of excitement through the philatelic community. "Is there any icon better-known to Americans than their own flag?" said Fred Baumann, a spokesman for the American Philatelic Society. "This is something somebody should have caught along the way." The stamp in question, "Night," was released by the Postal Service on April 18 as part of...

    'Stripes' And Superconductivity: Two Faces Of The Same Coin? Researchers at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cornell have made a surprising discovery about the behavior of high-temperature superconductors that could be a further step toward understanding how these valuable materials work. Scanning tunneling microscope photo of the surface of a sample of non-superconducting material. Whether or not the lined pattern seen here corresponds to the "striped" arrangement of electron pairs in the material is still to be determined, according to Cornell physicist J.C. Séamus Davis. (Image courtesy of Cornell University) Previous experiments have shown that in high-temperature superconductors known as cuprates,...

    A top fund-raising official on Senator Clinton's campaign, David Rosen, plans to defend himself against federal felony charges by arguing that he was tricked by two "self-confessed 'con men'" involved in planning an August 2000 fund-raiser. Mr. Rosen, a Chicago political consultant, faces trial in Los Angeles next week on an indictment alleging that he caused the filing of false campaign finance reports that understated the cost of the star-studded gala by $500,000 or more. In a motion filed Tuesday, Mr. Rosen's lawyers disclosed that they plan to claim that their client was deceived by a businessman who was the...

AGE: 35 The 10 summers David Rosen spent ringing doorbells to sell books turned out to be good preparation for raising tens of millions of dollars for the Gore-Lieberman ticket, Hillary Clinton's Senate race and other prominent Democratic candidates. At Southwestern Co., a Nashville, Tenn.-based direct sales firm that has trained thousands of college students during its 132-year history, Mr. Rosen got to the point where he made sales at five of every six households he called on. He still holds the record for first-year sales, according to Dan Moore, Southwestern's marketing...

    Aftenposten - Norway ^ | 12/14/2004 | Hans O.Torgersen
    The owner of a vast tract of virgin forest land in north-central Norway is in big trouble after chopping down trees on his own property. Newspaper Aftenposten reported Tuesday that the 54-year-old forest owner has been sentenced to six months in jail for chopping down the trees on his land in Flatanger, Nord-Trøndelag. The trees he chopped were in an area that was part of an officially designated nature preserve. An appeals court in Nord-Trøndelag ruled that the forest owner intentionally launched the logging operation, in the hopes that the area would thus lose its nature preserve status. Illegal logging...

FOX News should be called the Republican News Channel. Not only did we have to put up with FOX critiquing every speaker at the convention, but we had three hours nearly every evening condemning the Democrats for any proposal they presented. Has anyone seriously examined the AFN News channel to determine how much time is devoted to FOX?...

At the time, the combined income of the Clintons was around $60,000; so Hillary couldn’t risk a lot—a mere $1,000 to dip her toe into an uncertain stream. However, it turned out she was enormously lucky—so lucky, in fact, that a lot of cynics in Arkansas and elsewhere came...
