A Hymn and The Mystery of time

It is late on the east coast of the United States, the 23rd hour (11 pm) of the day we have called Feb 25. But where my Uncle, Fr. George Pope lives, (he is a priest in Bangladesh), not only is it Feb 26th, but it has been so for some time.
It is 9 in the morning there and they are likely arriving at work just now; on a day that has yet to begin for me. Further to the east, in Sydney Australia, it is 1pm in the afternoon of feb 26th and they are returning from lunch; before I have even gone to bed.

Dear Folks, As many of you know, I love to say, “You just can’t make this stuff up.”
Even now we are still discovering that more way of killing masses of civilians were being experimented on all the time. That this happened in New Zealand with their long anti nuclear history is even more bizarre. But that is what a World War does to people…stimulate their killing instincts.
We are reposting this Telegraph piece (God Bless them for printing it) not only as a dusty musty old archived find, but for one much more important. If they were discovering little goodies like this during WWII for creating ‘natural’ disasters, how far do you think the science has come since then, light years maybe?

In our lifetimes, we have had the war in Vietnam, and the Reagan revival, and now we find the left has been tunneling under us all along. Last Tuesday, the platform we thought was solid collapsed…”)
…..Who would have thought that it would fall to us, some of us in our so-called declining years (unless 60 is the new 40) to rescue the Republic? In our lifetimes, we have had the war in Vietnam, and the Reagan revival, and now we find the left has been tunneling under us all along. Last Tuesday, the platform we thought was solid collapsed as if its underpinnings had been eaten by termites, which they had.
The sky is falling… sort of. Over the last 10 years, the height of clouds has been shrinking, according to new research.
The time frame is short, but if future observations show that clouds are truly getting lower, it could have an important effect on global climate change. Clouds that are lower in the atmosphere would allow Earth to cool more efficiently, potentially offsetting some of the warming caused by greenhouse gases.
IM members are no doubt far more familiar than most people with the global nooks and crannies of the Internet, having searched out details on any number of possible bolt-holes, island paradises, relocation hot-spots, and just plain great places to live around the world.
With apologies to those readers who may already be familiar with the resources I’m about to describe, my experience has been that even dedicated Internet researchers often miss these three.First, Go GlobalA basic, often overlooked fact about the Worldwide Web is that you cannot simply use Google or any of the other U.S.-based search engines and actually search the whole world for relevant information.

James Cameron, the Hollywood producer responsible for blockbuster films like Terminator, Titanic and Avatar, is reportedly preparing to exit stage left. While the move for the Canadian born Cameron may initially be perceived as a rejection or denouncement of American policies and ideals, Cameron, who has made campaign donations to the Democrat Party in the past, most notably during the 2004 Presidential election where he supported democrat John Kerry, may have ulterior motivations, as evidenced by where he’s planning on moving and what he’s planning on doing once he gets there.
A coalition of hacker activists known as “Anonymous” — styling itself a “hacktivist” collective that fights for Internet freedom — took credit for bringing down websites belonging to the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the U.S. Copyright Office, and multiple heavy-hitting industry association sites. Most of the websites were back online by Friday morning.
The attack followed a major international piracy crackdown against the file-sharing firm Megaupload.com. American officials shut down the site — among the most trafficked in the world — and helped arrest at least four people in New Zealand accused of operating what the U.S. government called “an international organized criminal enterprise.” MegaUpload executives, none of whom are U.S. citizens, rejected the charges but remain in custody.
Internet activists and hackers, meanwhile, immediately sprang into action following news of the arrests. Anonymous used what is known as a “distributed denial of service” (DDoS) attack to target the U.S. government — including the White House — as well as top lobbying groups for Hollywood and the music industry. The well-known technique essentially floods a website with online traffic and eventually overloads its servers, causing it to temporarily shut down.
