Armaments manufacturer Alfred Krupp who allegedly used slave labor to make weapons for the Nazis, contacted the famous Arnold Newman for a portrait in 1963.
Upon finding out that Newman was a Jew, Krupp refused to let him take the photograph. Newman insisted to have Krupp look at his portfolio before making a final decision and after seeing Newman’s portfolio Krupp accepted.
On July 6, 1963, they went into a factory in Essen which belonged to Krupp, where Newman decided to make Krupp look as evil as possible under the eerie demonic lighting of the factory.
When Krupp first saw the portrait he was livid. Newman was more tongue-in-cheek: “As a Jew, it’s my own little moment of revenge.”
Arthur Conan Doyle (22 May 1859 – 7 July 1930) on holiday with his family and Harry Houdini (centre) in 1922 in Atlantic City.
The two became good friends after Houdini met Doyle while doing a performance tour in Europe. While the magician did not believe in Spiritualism, he had a strong interest in the subject and said many times that he did desperately want to believe, as he truly wished to speak to his beloved deceased mother.
During the holiday in 1922, Doyle’s wife, lady Jean offered to perform a séance for Houdini, Lady Jean entered a trance during the séance and her hand started moving, scribbling words across paper:
“Oh my darling, thank God, thank God, at last I’m through. I’ve tried, oh so often — now I am happy…”
After the séance, Houdini wrote a small note on the bottom of the paper, saying, “Message written by Lady Doyle claiming the spirit of my dear Mother had control of her hand — my sainted mother could not write English and spoke broken English.”
Houdini said he believed the Doyle’s did not deceive him intentionally, but were victims to their own gullibility.
After this, the men’s friendship did not last much longer.
A piebald deer is a deer with a brown and white spotting pattern which is not caused by parasites or diseases. They can appear to be almost entirely white. In addition to the non-standard coloration, other differences have been observed: bowing or Roman nose, overly arched spine (scoliosis), long tails, short legs, and underbites.
Sea pens (order Pennatulacea)
… are colonial marine cnidarians. There are 16 families within the order; they are thought to have a cosmopolitan distribution in tropical and temperate waters worldwide. Sea pens are grouped with the octocorals (“soft corals”), together with sea whips and gorgonians.
The sea pen fossil record is patchy and disputed; while the earliest accepted fossils are known from the Cambrian-aged Burgess Shale (Thaumaptilon), similar fossils from the Ediacaran (ala Charnia) may represent the dawn of sea pens. Precisely what these early fossils are, however, is not decided…

I wish I were rich. Because I could do stuff like this all the time.
I’m just going to reblog this for the 56464th time.
Don’t mind me.
THAT BIRD HAS FURRY LEGS
dude, its’ like teeny paws
why does this bird have paws
i dont know but i love this bird
I DEMAND TO KNOW THE TYPE OF THIS BIRD
Let me tell you something about today. Today was the hottest day of the year in New Jersey, I woke up sweating despite air conditioning because it was 95 degrees. Now, i did what any logical person would do and I put on my favorite pair of shorts so i wouldn’t be sweating throughout the day.
Even in my shorts i was sweating my balls off but I went through half of my day as normal, no boys stared at my ass or tried to grope me in public yet when i went to the the cafeteria a teacher told me to go to the office because he finds my shorts inappropriate. I head down to the office to find a group of girls wearing shorts and skirts sitting in a small room in the office, we where all ordered to call our parents or to change into the clothes they had offered us from the school store. These items of clothing included sweatpants and a large heavy sweatshirt. I obviously refused to where those because it was 95 degrees and when you are sweating the key to cool down is NOT to put on more clothes. They told me I would have to stay in that room the whole day if it came down to it.
I was able to leave the office when my friend gave me a pair of yoga pants. The man who made me go down to the office brought down several other girls as I was leaving, at this point they didn’t care how long the shorts where they just sent everyone who was wearing a pair down. They warned me that if I put my shorts back on they would right me up.
I put them back on anyway because just walking down the hallway in those yoga pants made me faint, dizzy,and extremely hot. Thats the main issue, it is hot enough for people to pass out in school but to the school system they would rather a girl suffer from a heat stroke then to have a boy become turned on. My shorts don’t say “COme fuck me in the middle of class” they say,”Its warm out”
The sexualizing of innocent students is not okay
Risking students health is not okay
and tHE LACK OF FEMINISM IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM WILL NEVER BE OKAY
Today was literally horrible
I hate our school so much
what do they do to boys? I bet nothing. And yet, we girls cannot complain and say that the boys having shorts on are too distracting. It is pathetic and horrible and schools need to change.
This is amazing.
This is a really HUGE breakthrough for the Romanovs. I’m actually shaking as I read this article. I have posted about this previously, but the site has since been updated.
The SEARCH foundation is an independently funded organization that was responsible for the discovery and excavation of Alexei and Anastasia’s remains. Now they have a lead on Michael’s.
In 1918, the Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovich and his secretary, Brian Johnson were arrested by Soviet forces and imprisoned, not unlike many other Romanovs, in the city of Perm. His captor was Bolshevik Andrey Markov, who burst into Michael’s hotel room and forced him to leave by gunpoint. Markov told Michael he was being taken to a train, by which the Grand Duke did not resist. But the Bolshevik led them out ‘by a shortcut’ through the forest, and both Michael and Brian were shot in the chest and head. Local peasants heard the gunshot, and by the time they arrived the shooter had disappeared. But it did not take them long to find the bodies. The peasants respectively buried the two men under the trees, into which they scratched the letters “M” and “A” Michael Alexandrovich.
In 2007, a man recorded in an interview with Russian press reveiling a story he had kept through communist rule. On the night of the 11 June, 1918, he had been amongst the villagers who had come across two men’s bodies in the forest. He died soon after but his story has helped reveal one of the final mysteries of the Romanov family.
And in 2012, the murder site was located. The SEARCH foundation followed the directions given by the man and found the precise spot where there were engravings upon the trees. Unfortunately the weather soon turned characteristically harsh and they were forced to give up their search. But the website says that the organization will be returning in the summer of 2013.
I personally, will keep my eye on this. Soon we may have Uncle Misha reunited with us, and his dear family once again.
Wow I had no idea this was going on :O this is incredible!
