Foreign Relations of the United States The Foreign Relations of the United States series is the official documentary historical record of major U.S. foreign policy decisions that have been declassified and edited for publication. The series is produced by the State Department's Office of the Historian and printed volumes are available from the Government Printing Office. FRUS begins with the administration of Abraham Lincoln in 1861. There are two cumulative indexes covering 1861-1899 and 1900-1918. The organization of FRUS is generally chronological, but the dates of the volumes do not necessarily reflect the dates of documentary history. For example, the volumes for 1900-1918 do not include the records dealing with World War I or the Russian Revolution.
This Foot-Long Box Is the Most Advanced Particle Collider in the World The CERN particle collider is 17 miles long. China just announced a supercollider that is supposed to be roughly 49 miles long. The United States' new particle collider is just under 12 inches long. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in having a bunch of plasma inside of it, allowing researchers at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, Calif., to accelerate particles more than 500 times faster than traditional methods.

Philosophers Stone. Selected views from the boat. by Ninja Bambi I awoke this morning, pondering on the evidence I still witness and experience of the hooks, barbs and velcro that remain deep in our flesh, or which just snag at our clothing from time to time. I see these various forms of hooks as representing some aspect of the control system, the Matrix. When we decide to break free of this control system, we encounter massive problems, in the form of the myriad of hooks, comfort hooks, safety hooks, family hooks, emotional-reaction-dependance hooks, religious hooks, nationality hooks, etc. And one of the most insidious ways in which this matrix has us hooked, and what I wish to discuss in this essay, is its Calendar systems. In particular I refer to the standard western calendar, as it was within this where my indoctrination took place.
Animation Today Hollywood's animation community has entered its post-Pixar era, creating fresh opportunities for everybody else, including the animation community in India. Pixaris no longer the scruffy, fun-loving studio it was a lifetime ago, back in 1995 when “Toy Story” was released. It has been a while since we read magazine articles that gushed about Pixar's customized animator cubicles, the Tiki room, Old West saloon and Olympic size swimming pool.
Empress Royal Paulownia Tree Step 1: Dig the hole Pick the perfect spot with full or partial sunlight and with moist or well drained soil. Dig the hole so it is shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width. Loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through. Drag the point of a shovel along the sides and bottom of the hole.

These days most Americans have lost faith in corporate-owned media outlets because they believe the institution of press protected in the first amendment no longer represents the people of our great nation. For many, it has been challenging to replace the failed dinosaur media, which is why I’m writing this article for people seeking legitimate sources. As everyone discovered earlier this month when Brian Williams admitted to making up false Iraq war stories, Fox News clearly isn’t the only outlet that has gone off the deep end in crafting a reality of their choosing. Here are 10 news outlets the corporate media doesn’t want you to follow:
Google knows where you’ve been, and Your Timeline for Maps shows you If you're all-in on Google services — say, if you use Google Now on your smartphone — you're likely aware of the fact that Google tracks your location to serve you useful information. What you might not realize is just how much location data Google has on you. Surprisingly enough, the company has just turned that somewhat creepy bit of info into a new feature called Your Timeline. For Google Maps users on Android and on the web, this feature will let you "visualize your real-world routines" — a less sketchy way of saying you can see everywhere that Google has tracked you with its Location History setting. In fitting with Google's typically excellent app design, Your Timeline shows up in a nice, scrollable format that reminds me of the new Google Calendar app, letting you swipe your way through a day to see where Google saw you. It even pulls in relevant photos you might have taken if you're using the Google Photos app for that extra bit of "this is your life" oddness.
