Today is the 59th anniversary of the first flight of the Avro Arrow. A Canadian jet interceptor that was cancelled back in 1958 for a number of dubious reasons. It had the potential to surpass anything anybody had flying on the planet including the United States and Soviet Union. Today Canda's air force is nothing but a farce flying a handful of outdated American F-18s. Canada : The true north not strong and free. Embarrassed.

I'm very sorry to hear of the Westminster Bridge massacre yesterday. This is an area of London that I visited with my children and late wife as both tourists and citizens. I feel deeply for those who were injured and killed in yet another senseless act of violence.

I don't know the full history but how/why would he let this go in the first place.......Confused MJ made nice profits on the two sales, even though he needed it to pay off debt, still he was the smart one in this whole deal seems.....As Sony/ATV looks to have thrown away $750MM if the rights go back anyway...

^From the site:

"Abraham Zapruder's footage became emblematic of the growing mediatisation of public events in the 1960s.
A decade that began with disasters still happening in far away countries of which we knew very little and saw virtually nothing, ended with the emaciated stick-figure victims of the Biafran war lolling listlessly on our television screens, intercut with near-live film of US Army helicopters strafing Vietnamese villages with heavy-calibre machine guns.
Kennedy's assassination was the epitome of this new phenomenon, fitting as it did celebrity, glamour, tragedy, bloodshed, sex and power within the compass of a single lens."

Astonishing how the same old story keeps repeating itself to death...... add to it: money rules the world  Ouch Dead

I used to be able to paste links to PA and they would show up active, but lately, I have had to insert the link between {url} and {/url}   (using brackets for both).

PM Theresa May's speech on Brexit yesterday made me sick to the core.  The EU is far from perfect but how a British PM can be sucked in by anti-immigration rhetoric is beyond me.  Meanwhile, Trump is stirring it by talking to our far-right, anti-immigration politicians.  The world is about to turn really nasty.  What's more, the use being made of anti-elite rhetoric to get these clowns elected - what a joke - as the picture of Trump and Farage in a gold-plated lift testifies.  (That's enough issues covered in one post - Ed.)

Really saddened me, one the best telejournalists of her time.   Unfortunate timing as well; we could've used her thoughtful but cool & wary approach to politics now.

RIP Gwen Ifill of Public television Washington Week. 

One of the few class acts in TV journalism.  Didn't agree with her quite often, but she never let her politics affect the objectivity, and thus, the quality of her work.  Very sad losing her and John McLaughlin in the same year.

It is very difficult to gauge the size of the Moon without having something close-by to reference it which is why the best Supermoon pictures are those taken just after moonrise or just before moonset so the photographer can frame the image with a structure or tree to give the illusion of scale. 

The difference between a normal Moon and a Supermoon is about the same as the difference between a US penny and a dime (or between a Euro 20 and a Euro 50).

Its this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

^ 14% larger than a typical full moon but honestly I couldn't tell any size difference.  I could see the man in the moon pretty well.
