The History of Stax Records

/Stax Records Stax Records, a name which is synonymous with Southern soul music, began as Satellite Records in Memphis in 1959. Founded by Jim Stewart, a former country fiddler, and Estelle Axton, whose son Charles "Packy" Axton was a saxophonist with the original Mar-Keys, the company had its first Top Ten hit in 1961 with "Gee Whiz" by Carla Thomas. During the next few years Stax developed a brand of music which was to have worldwide repercussions. As We May Think - Magazine. As Director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development, Dr.

As We May Think - Magazine

Vannevar Bush has coordinated the activities of some six thousand leading American scientists in the application of science to warfare. In this significant article he holds up an incentive for scientists when the fighting has ceased. He urges that men of science should then turn to the massive task of making more accessible our bewildering store of knowledge. For years inventions have extended man's physical powers rather than the powers of his mind. Trip hammers that multiply the fists, microscopes that sharpen the eye, and engines of destruction and detection are new results, but not the end results, of modern science. This has not been a scientist's war; it has been a war in which all have had a part.

For the biologists, and particularly for the medical scientists, there can be little indecision, for their war has hardly required them to leave the old paths. There is a growing mountain of research. Dei deputati - Portale storico.

L'ultimo discorso parlamentare di Giacomo Matteotti - 30 maggio 1924. Death mask. December 25, 2011 Jesus Christ’s Death Mask by Biblioklept Okay.

Death mask

Yes. Obviously this is the Shroud of Turin, which, hey, take it or leave it at your metaphysical will. On August 29 of 2010 Biblioklept ran an image of Walt Whitman’s death mask; the day happened to be a Sunday, and we’ve run a death mask every Sunday since then, with the exception of Sunday, September 11, 2011, when to do so seemed to be in poor taste. Over the past year and a half, folks wrote in to tell us repeatedly that the death mask was in fact a life mask, or that the death mask was perhaps of spurious origin, or even just that they liked the death mask. Anyway, Sunday death masks were fun for the past 17 months or so, but next Sunday marks a new year, and today’s Sunday is the last of this year, and it’s Christmas, which makes the Shroud of Turin a nice, easy way of saying: no more death masks, at least not on a regular basis.
