Bernie Sanders’s Long Run Bernie Sanders formally announced that he was running for President on May 26, 2015, in a stern thirty-five-minute speech he delivered in Burlington, Vermont, on the green-gray shores of Lake Champlain. But, really, his campaign began nearly five years earlier, on the floor of the Senate, on December 10, 2010, when Sanders spoke—without eating, or sitting down, or taking a bathroom break—for eight and a half hours.

Perry suspends campaign after hopes for a ‘second chance’ were dashed ST. LOUIS — Former Texas governor Rick Perry, who sought political redemption after a humiliating campaign for the White House four years ago, announced Friday that he was suspending his candidacy for the 2016 Republican nomination, becoming the first casualty in the combustible and crowded contest.

THE TABLE OF THE NATIONS On the seeming springing forth of both the Egyptian and Sumerian civilizations from nowhere, Dr. Walter Emery, prof. Of Egyptology at the University of London, said: "At a period approximately 3400 before Christ, a great change took place in Egypt, and the country passed rapidly from a state of Neolithic culture with a complex tribal character to one of well organized monarchy.....

All this was achieved within a comparatively short period of time, for there appears to be little or no background to these fundamental developments in writing and architecture.
