(Photo: Doug Kanter/AFP/Getty Images) Last week marked the 40th anniversary of one of the worst terrorist attacks in American history. The bombing of New York’s LaGuardia Airport on December 29, 1975 killed 11 innocents and maimed 74 more, many of them gravely. Few noticed the anniversary, however, perhaps because this appalling crime has never been solved and remains a cold case.

The horrifying scene garnered plenty of attention at the time. The bomb, equivalent to 25 sticks of dynamite, was placed in a coin-operated locker in the baggage claim area of the central terminal. When it detonated just after 6:30 pm, the explosion shredded a wall of lockers, creating a wave of shrapnel that scythed down everyone in its path. The bodies of the 11 dead were mangled, some unrecognizable, while many of the dozens of injured were close to death. The NYPD had little to work with. To Mr. Mr. In response, Mr. The Lonely Death of George Bell. They found him in the living room, crumpled up on the mottled carpet. The police did. Sniffing a fetid odor, a neighbor had called 911. The apartment was in north-central Queens, in an unassertive building on 79th Street in Jackson Heights. The apartment belonged to a George Bell. Neighbors had last seen him six days earlier, a Sunday. Then the smell of death and the police and the sobering reason that George Bell did not move his car.

Each year around 50,000 people die in New York, and each year the mortality rate seems to graze a new low, with people living healthier and longer. A much tinier number die alone in unwatched struggles. George Bell — a simple name, two syllables, the minimum. Like most New Yorkers, he lived in the corners, under the pale light of obscurity. With George Bell, the ripples from the process would spill improbably and seemingly by happenstance from the shadows of Queens to upstate New York and Virginia and Florida.

About 2.6 percent of American adults -- nearly 6 million people -- have bipolar disorder, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).

But the disease, characterized by significant and severe mood changes, is still dangerously misunderstood. Bipolar disorder is vastly different from the normal ups and downs of everyday life, but many have co-opted the term to refer to any old change in thoughts or feelings. The mood swings in someone with bipolar disorder, sometimes also called manic depression, can damage relationships and hurt job performance.

It has been estimated that anywhere from 25 to 50 percent of people with bipolar disorder attempt suicide at least once. Artist Ellen Forney detailed her diagnosis with bipolar disorder in the graphic memoir Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me. Forney previously shared her story with us, specifically detailing how her bipolar disorder has affected her creative work. "This is one of my favorite pages.

Сколько иронии и пренебрежения можно услышать со стороны моряков в адрес этого примитивного и, к сожалению, твердо внедрившегося в наш быт узла. Это именно то, чего не должны делать моряки - завязывать этот узел. Флотский человек, незадачливо завязавший бабий узел даже на берегу, будет наверняка осмеян своими коллегами.

Мол, это - позор для флота. Но, увы, среди людей сухопутных этот узел - универсал. Создается впечатление, что люди, усвоив этот узел в детстве, настолько сильно уверовали в его утилитарность, что не хотят и слышать о каких-то других сложных морских узлах. Помимо его отрицательных качеств (скользить и не поддаваться развязыванию), они уловили одно его положительное свойство - при определенных условиях мгновенно превращаться в простой штык - в один из самих простых и надежных морских узлов для закрепления швартова судна на берегу за пал, кнехт или причальную тумбу.

Takelazh. An Interactive Map of Odysseus’ 10-Year Journey in Homer’s Odyssey. The Odyssey, one of Homer's two great epics, narrates Odysseus' long, strange trip home after the Trojan war. During their ten-year journey, Odysseus and his men had to overcome divine and natural forces, from battering storms and winds to difficult encounters with the Cyclops Polyphemus, the cannibalistic Laestrygones, the witch-goddess Circe and the rest. And they took a most circuitous route, bouncing all over the Mediterranean, moving first down to Crete and Tunisia. Next over to Sicily, then off toward Spain, and back to Greece again. If you're looking for an easy way to visualize all of the twists and turns in The Odyssey, then we'd recommend spending some time with the interactive map created by Gisèle Mounzer. Meanwhile, if you're interested in the whole concept of ancient travel, I'd suggest revisiting one of our previous posts: Play Caesar: Travel Ancient Rome with Stanford’s Interactive Map.

I believe that there are some defendants who have earned the ultimate punishment our society has to offer by committing murder with aggravating circumstances present. I believe life is sacred. It cheapens the life of an innocent murder victim to say that society has no right to keep the murderer from ever killing again.

In my view, society has not only the right, but the duty to act in self defense to protect the innocent. Nevertheless, the value of the death penalty in our current system of justice is a limited one and should not be overstated. In spite of these shortcomings, it is my view that pursuing a death sentence in appropriate cases is the right thing to do. No system of justice can produce results which are 100% certain all the time. Our "system" was created by legislators and judges.
