chronology: Actresses can turn the lockdown into a money-spinner.
Like everyone else, some actresses have been short on cash during this lockdown. One Thespian joined a Adult web site where people can buy nude pictures of women member's. She took a selfie of herself nude then sent them to men for 200 dollar's a selfie. In one day her selfie picture earned her a million dollars.
Other actresses made hundreds of thousands of dollars in a day as well. As some actresses may say, 'it is difficult to say no to a million dollars just to send out a Beach photo' .
chronology: North America, before the Great Flood, it was no place to relax in.
For folks who believe the Bible account of mankind's creation, it has puzzled them why North America was so sparsely populated by Humans after mankind began spreading over the world after being evicted from the Garden of Eden.
According to the now discredit theory of the Siberia land route. Humans migrated slowly after the Great Flood around 12000 year's ago into North America. There is now good evidence that people were making patchy attemps of settlement of North America before the Flood. But fell victim to wars between rival race's competing for land there. Even so, why was human activity so thin on the land of North America?
First, the land available for Human settlements in the north was much less than today due to Ice shelves being closer to the South. But the most likely reason was the aggressive Apex Predators of America before the Flood. Large lions, Bear's, Wolves and other carnivores ruled the land. Human migrants, few in number and lacking the benefits of established civilisation in what we call Iraq today, seem to have been unable to wrestle a long lasting niche in the American landscape from the predators.
Virtually none of the super predators survived the Great Flood 12000 year's ago. And Humans were quick to grasp a place in Northern America.
chronology: Murderer of Officer William Evan's suspected as having mental health issues.
Noah Green is being referred to by people who knew him as a person who was obsessed with Conspiracy theories and fringe religion.
Authorities in the USA are beginning to conclude that in the light of his recent posts on social media, and the increased religious advertising at this time of year, that Green may have become overwhelmed with religious mania of some kind which led him to attack the two Police Officer's defending the capital building.
Officer Evans was a long serving Washington DC Police Officer described by friends as a patriotic American and a man devoted to the Police service.
One former CIA Officer said at the moment little is known of Green for certain. But the information becoming apparent is that he seems to have become deranged with Conspiracy theories.
chronology: Police Officers in Northern Ireland take heavy casualties as they keep the peace among rioting groups.
Police Service Northern Ireland Officers managed to prevent rioting spreading in Newtownabby, but Officers paid a heavy price with dozens injured by bricks and petrol bombs. Despite the showers of bricks and fire bombs Officers prevented a spread of the public disorder.
The riots are said to be provoked by a number of high pressure arguments within political groups in Northern Ireland. The recent Brexit boarder arrangements, and claims of double standards in allowing public meetings during Covid.
Interested parties in America, Ireland, and Ulster will be grateful for the professional work of the PSNI in preventing any disruption to the present progress within Ulster after Brexit.
At the moment Ulster has excellent Human Rights for all people, fine business prospects, and excellent opportunities for working and studying in Europe. A return to the troubles of the past would wreck all of these fine opportunities.
chronology: This date in 1973 The World Trade Center in New York City opens officially.
From the moment it opened the World Trade Center appears to have been a mysterious place. One man who spent years studying the building commented that over the 30 years of the existence of the WTC he could not find a single photograph of people working in the World Trade Center Offices. There were publicity type photographs, but he could not find a single private photograph taken by anyone inside the building. As he commented 'when you remember that on a average day 50000 people were reported as working inside the buildings, it just seems incredible that there is not one photograph I could find taken by people who worked there'.
Virtually everyone who claims to have visited the WTC over the decades visited the Windows on the World Restaurant. And the elevators that went to the restaurant were strictly controlled. You could only go to and from the restaurant.
There had been 430 businesses listed over the years as residents of the Towers. But he could not find a single Web site anywhere by those businesses dedicated to their time at the WTC.
This really is strange and bazaar, the man reflected. He said 'we have accounts of people who were in the WTC at the time of 911. But for nearly 30 years there are virtually no accounts at all of people in the WTC'.
On the day of 911 the weird mysterious atmosphere of the WTC continued. On the day of the attacks there is only one known photograph taken inside the building, and that was of a Fire Fighter.
There must be a explanation for the lack of photographs over all those decades. Maybe confidentiality rules or something.
Videos from Belfast at the are showing shocking images of police officers under attack. But looked at closely other videos are curious.
In one video a man is apparently seen being dragged from his car and the car then being trashed by rioters. But whoops, looked at closely the driver can be seen doubling back into the rioters and joining in trashing his own car.
Officers from PSNI may be interviewing the man in the future to ask why he joined in trashing his own car.
chronology: Fire from the sky in Belfast.
A rioter was stood hurling bricks at Northern Ireland Police vehicles when a petrol bomb thrown at Police vehicles fell short and hit the young man on the head. He was instantly engulfed with fire and stumbled away burning. Police vehicles drove carefully towards the young man to lend assistance to him.
PSNI Senior Officers have urged the public to stop young people rioting.
chronology: Newtownabby Northern Ireland tonight reorted to be quiet compared to the last two nights. But PSNI Police Officers are still being made targets for random petrol bombs and stones.
PSNI Officers have been widely praised for their courage and professionalism over the weekend.
But people are still concerned for the now weakened peace in Ireland. People in Northern Ireland enjoy World Class human rights, a promising economy, opportunity to work and study for unlimited time in Europe. NI is the brightest spot at the moment in the UK. But this hopeful environment is at risk is violence spreads across Ulster.
chronology: This date in 1994 Kurt Cobain dies by suicide.
Cobains death was a shock to the music industry in America, and in many other countries.
In no time at all there were conspiracy theories that he was murdered. But despite contradictions in the reports of his death suicide is still seen as the most likely cause.
So who would want to kill Kurt? According to some people, they allege that Kurt at times broke into churches at night and daubed obscenities on the walls. He was said to have had a life long hatred of God.
He also worshipped former child molester William Burroughs, one of the high points of Kurt's life was said to be when he met Burroughs. Did someone 'off' Kurt out of anger at his secret supposed church visits? Or out of anger for his friendship with Burroughs?
Blackshoes: I have no idea what to believe? I suppose it doesn't matter, it's here now ' and once pandora's box has been opened, there is no closing it.
chronology: NASA success in dropping off Drone.
NASA have successfully dropped off a drone helicopter on the surface of mars. The Mars Lander then drew back away from the drone it had placed on Mars so as to avoid a possible collision when the Drone takes off in a week or so.
Hopefully NASA will have the most impressive video ever shot by any drone ever.
chronology: Northern Ireland Politicians probably relieved at lack of interest in Portadown Parade.
Politicians in Ireland and others with an interest in the Peace Process in Ulster will be breathing more easily after the Portadown Parade held today was only attended by a few dozen people. The Parade was seen as a test of the Unionist Communities feeling over the Brexit Agreement in Ulster. Coming after the recent violence in Newtownabbey, Portadown has clearly shown most Unionist people in Ulster can accept the Brexit Agreement for Ulster.
Traditionalist Unionists are angered by the internal boarder between Ulster and the rest of Great Britain which is necessary for EU legislation to continue in Ulster. But most Unionists are happy to remain in Europe and are comfortable with the EU opportunities for work and study in Europe. Most Ulster people are very energetic and hard working people who make use of opportunities to travel work and reside for short times in Europe. Students and professionals in Ulster also enjoy the freedom to travel and study in Europe. As far as Ulster people are concerned, the Brexit Ulster Arrangement is a Win Win situation. But for traditional Unionists, the symbols and significance of official political rhetoric mean a lot.
Americans who have worked so hard promoting the open boarders for Ulster people will be breathing a sigh of relief as much as the politicians at the results of the Portadown Parade news. Like everyone else, they see all people in Ulster suffering substantially if a hard boarder is in place.
chronology: International Asexual Day today.
Well it had to happen, a Day dedicated to people who do not have any interest in sex at all.
Asexuality is the position taken by people who do not feel sexual attraction to anyone else. Probably they are the most unnoticed group of people in any workplace or group of people, but probably the most ridiculed and laughed at.
People always assume that the man or woman in the workplace or college who does not have regular sexual encounters with other people is a pretty weird kind of person. A common complaint amongst Asexual people is that they often have to explain just why they don't have any kind of sexual relationships. They also complain that they are always seen as 'broken' or'damaged goods' .
For most people sex is the most enjoyable pleasure in life. Smoking Pot is also popular with most people. But not everyone likes Pot or Sex.
chronology: Officer Chauvin Trial takes a new Twist.
At the Trial of a Police Officer accused of manslaughter of George Floyd, the man who was in the car with George when he was arrested and died is refusing to testify at the Trial.
Across the web, the man, Morries Hall, a friend of George, is being suspected of supplying George with the drugs that contributed to his death during his arrest by Officer Chauvin. Defender's of Officer Chauvin have insisted it was a health crisis resulting from year's of drug abuse and alcohol abuse that was the real cause of the sad death of George. Mr Hall, a long time friend of George, may be able to give clarity into just how much drugs George took on the day he died, and to defend himself against the accusations being made that he gave George the drugs that contributed to his death the day he died.
But Mr Hall is insisting he be given a immunity deal otherwise he will state his 5th amendment Rights and decline to answer questions in Court.
As George is dead, and he was the only other person who could confirm or deny the accusations he gave George the drugs that killed him, unless he he is granted immunity people are not likely to know if he was the man who handed George the opioids which contributed to his death.
Even should Morries confirm that the accusations are true that he did give George the drugs that day, he is unlikely to face any charges relating to the death of George. Although without a testimony deal he would face Drug charges. People supplying drugs rarely face manslaughter charges.
But any charges made against Mr Hall that if it were true he supplied drugs to George, and that led to his death may begin a weird Trial indeed.
Morries defense would most likely be modelled on the police defense that he had no idea how serious Georg's health problems were, and George contributed to his own fatality by refusing to simply cooperate with the police.
chronology: Here to stay.
In theory, folk's in San Francisco should be looking around for a replacement for the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. When constructed in 1937 the Bridge was given a life span of around a hundred year's. Which would mean a replacement would be needed in less than 20 year's. But in reality, the beautiful bridge, with correct maintenance will last for as long as folk's in San Francisco want it to.
Blackshoes: Here's the problem? If or if not, Hill gave Georg the drugs. It very likely that the police "Taking care of their own " would accuse him. Therefore, It's not to be believed, no matter what Hill has to say The police officer was in the wrong. Is Officer Chauvin a murderer? Well, that's in the eyes of the beholder and God?
IMO Officer Chauvin killed Georg through the act of police brutality. Eight minutes was far too long to have not cuffed him and put him in the car. If Georg had, died sitting In the back seat of a police car? There be no trial. No accusation of manslaughter, and no serious public outrage.
(Edited by Blackshoes)
chronology: Blackie, first off I have seen People restrained for 25 minutes without any lasting harm done. The alternative is to let them wander off in a drugged up state and get smashed into by a car.
There is no sign the police in Milwaukee are trying to blame anyone. But a central point of this case is how much drugs was consumed by George on the last day of his life. Morries was with George and could assist in filling in the details for the Authorities to understand what happened.
Tens of thousands of people were restrained by police across the USA last year just like George was. Every one of them is walking around now without any ill effects. Clearly there was something about George that was contributing to him having a negative reaction to normal restraint methods. Was it his medical condition? Drugs?
Am not being at all sarcastic, but perhaps we should go back to the old days and just have people like George be given the'bums rush' and thrown into the street and let road traffic and muggers decide their fate.
chronology: George Floyd Trial hears recording of Officer Chauvin repeatedly requesting George to enter the Police car. George can be heard responding 'oh mama, oh mama, why should I sit in the car? I am not a bad man. Oh mama, '
Officer Chauvin again patiently requests George to sit in the Police car, but refuses repeating over and over 'oh mama oh mama' .
A witness who was saying how he watched George crying in front of Officer Chauvin stated 'I know how George felt, I lost my mama too. I don't have a mama' . The witness, an elderly African American then began crying in the witness stand and repeating ' I don't have a Mama' .
Another video shows Officer Chauvin again patiently requesting George to sit in the police car. But George for no apparent reason at all begins sobbing and repeating 'am not a bad man' .
chronology: This date in 1820 The Venus de Milo is discovered in a cave on a Greek Island Aegean sea.
The Statue is praised world wide as one of the finest examples of Classical Greek Art.
The Statue is also praised as the most beautiful depiction of the female form.
Don't know wireclubers. America's Betie Page in her more artistic photographs probably sums up feminine beauty.
"Myths About the Wild West that Westerns got Absolutely Wrong
There is hardly a movie genre that captivated so many for so long the way ‘Western’ did; bringing back to life some of the lost traditions of the frontier along with its ruggedness and outlaws. Americans especially loved the old west, for its gunfights, cowboys, stagecoach robberies, and clashes with Indians.
The flurry of western movie production perpetuated the American romance with the Wild West and doing so went off course with fewer facts and more fictional conjuring. Regardless of the vision of the Wild West one may have, the old west was nothing like what it has been portrayed on a cinema screen for the better part of last century. Following are some of the facts about the life on the frontier that is in sheer contrast with what we envisioned all these years.
This may come to many as a shock that Native Americans were absolutely flabbergasted to see the hygiene of the new western emigrants; they were disgusted. Days were long, very long if you put in the equation the scorching heat. Unlike the Natives, emigrants wore long and thick clothing which obviously made things worse for them while traveling in high temperatures.
Despite the apparent hardships the people at the time had no infatuation with regular bathing or cleaning, most men and women went months without taking a bath, and they seemed fine with it. The natives were absolutely repulsed at this, as this was a strange behavior for them. Native Americans had become accustomed to the elements and learned to live with the hardships, and most of them washed regularly; far more frequently than the emigrants. Now try to find that in western movies.
Water was sold like Gold
While Natives were laughing their heads off on the smelly cowboys, the incoming people faced the struggle of life and death. Unfamiliar with the terrain the people moving to the old west feared death by thirst and starvation.
This created a whole new business industry; many ‘entrepreneurs’ took gallons of waters from the other side to sell it to the travelers and locals for high prices. The cost of a mere cup of water started from one dollar, five dollars and in some places went as high as one hundred dollars. To put this in perspective, at the time a pound of meat cost approximately one cent or even less in some places. Drinking water without a doubt was as expensive in the old west as gold.
Many of us will associate the term traffic jam with modern lifestyle; in fact, the good old west had its fair share of traffic jams on its trails. That vision, that western movies gave us of a single wagon slowly treading on a rugged terrain is just that; a vision.
In reality, the people moving towards frontier traveled in groups of hundreds of wagons on dirt roads. This inevitably created massive clouds of dust to even turn the day into night (or a nightmare) for those poor folks lurking at the back. There was no chance of overtaking as the trails were mostly narrow and could only have enough space of one and at most two medium sized wagons. Most of the travelers packed a pair of goggles to avoid being devastated by the thick dust clouds and looked like a freshly unearthed mummy by the time they reached their destination.
Camels in the West
Another fact which was totally ignored by the western filmmakers was the presence of camels in 19th century Wild West. The affair started in the early 1800’s when American authorities seriously took notice of the notion that camels could easily adapt the harsh western conditions and could bring some prosperity in terms of carrying and food as well. In 1843 US camel corps was formed after authorities imported some sixty-six healthy camels from Egypt and Morocco.
The move largely proved to be a success and the imported giants quickly acclimated themselves to western conditions and bred well. However, during and after the American Civil War a large number of camels were either killed or ran into the wilderness. Some of the camels were captured by the circus for shows and carrying stuff. The last time anyone saw a camel in the west was in Texas in 1941.
No Cowboy Hats
The single most recognizable symbol of the old west constructed and perpetuated by the movies is the cowboy hat. In reality, the Cowboys at the time did not wear such headgear, purely because it was not practical and did not go with their overall rough and rugged attire. Travelling in heat, fighting with nature, starving for days and searching for every drop of water; the emigrants had no view of their ‘wardrobe’ especially when they were literally fighting for their lives.
The Peaceful West
Another injustice that movies did to those who lived in the west all through the 19th century was the fact that they were all portrayed as either gunslingers, land grabbers or mere sheep who worshipped the powerful. In reality, the situation in the old west was not that bad, actually less violent than the other parts of America. The rate of homicide was significantly low; there were no choreographed gun-bouts, no mass hangings; to put it in one term ‘west was never the way you may remember from the western movies’.
Native Americans were nothing like the barbarians and killers that western movies portray them as; they were rather clean, thinking, spiritual and mostly peaceful people, much like any community of humans. They were surely more civilized from the new settlers, more hygiene conscious for sure.
Related story from us: Quick on the draw: Famous gunmen of the Old West
Native Americans did not attack the caravans of emigrants and killed them senseless; rather most of the Natives offered helped and did trade with the incoming settlers. The circle formation of wagons in the nights that Western got ‘right’ (perhaps the only thing they got right about the west) was not a defensive measure against attacking Native tribes; it was rather a move to stop the animals from wandering off and leaving people helpless in the wilderness."

chronology: Blackie, I will have to take issue with some points in your post. First the era. If you are referring to the classic era of the west, 1850 to 1900, then cowboys definitely did wear cowboy hats.
The 'smelly white man' you talk of was a reaction many first nation folks winced at in the 18th century on the east coast of America. It was because in Europe most cities had no running water in homes. And the water was almost always infected with deaseases. When cowboys reached towns there first stop on being paid was the bath houses and barber shops.
One of the biggest problems in the west for cowboys was STDs. About half the cowboys of the West were infected with syphilis. At the time, London England had the same rate of infection.
The most feared event for cowboys was not rustlers or Indians, it was the Stampede. A stampede could take place for any reason. But any cowboy and their horses who were in the path of stampeding cattle was killed instantly. Cowboy historian's will tell you that in seconds thousands of cattle would be racing in a massive wall of animals that would trample to death any cowboy in their path.
I still remember the Cowboy cologne I used when I was young, and the long drawn out shaving ritual I copied cowboys from. You always have a rich lather of soap, cologne soap, and always take your time not missing any stubble.
Cowboy Coffee is still a legend. But how many café in the West make the real stuff today is anyone's guess. You have to roast the green beans, then grind them and cook them fresh.
One of the most notable Hollywood misrepresentation of the West was the use of horses pulling wagons. Horses would never have lasted a week. Oxen were the only to pull wagons in the Old West.
chronology: Ulster could face a very dark and lonely future.
A recent White House Statement by Ms Jen Psaki urged the people of Northern Ireland to reject street violence and not to throw away the benefits of long negotiated peace talks of the past which have placed the Ulster people in a position of a enjoying a bright future of prosperity and human rights enjoyed by all people in Northern Ireland.
Although the riots in Belfast are small compared with the huge Civil Rights event's of the 1970s, there is a major difference in the reaction internationally to the present riots. They have no support anywhere outside Ireland. In the past Human Rights and Civil Rights advocates around the world urged Great Britain to undertake reforms that would end the resistance actions of demonstrators in Ulster, this time there is universal condemnation of the rioting with not a single country anywhere expressing sympathy or understanding for the rioters. The rioters are in a very isolated place indeed with every government denouncing their actions as criminal and unwarranted.
chronology: Structures on the moon? Huh?
A reoccurring subject for debate among conspiracy theorists is the argument about photographs sent back to earth by American and Chinese Space craft which supposedly show ruins of buildings on the far side of the moon. There have always been accusations that NASA were hiding the facts about the alleged buildings.
First off wirreclubbers, what kind of buildings are being argued about. Well there were the jokey fake photograph's in tabloid's like the National Enquirer, and YouTube hoax video's. But are there really any serious questions to be asked about anomalies on the moon? The answer is yes.
Firstly, the ruined building structures are not suggested to be in current use. They appear to date from the same time period as the similar ruins noted on Mars, that would be around 10000 year's ago at least. There are no signs of any vehicle movement outside the buildings, and the structures show every sign of being long abandoned.
But why do some serious scientists agree that the buildings were constructed and are not just fluke's of natural geology? It is because of what appears to be walls and exposed rooms in half buried mound's. As one Chinese lady stated 'somebody built that structure, it didn't just appear' .
As said wirreclubbers, we are talking about structures apparently dating from 10000 year's ago at least, and there is no sign that anyone still visit's the structure's, so there is nothing to worry about. But as the folks at the Conference in China said some year's back, there does need to be debate about who built these odd buildings. The buildings are around the size of aircraft Hanger's. Some of the ruins clearly show signs of explosions from within.
