Can You Survive The Pompeo Challenge?

NPR journalist Mary Louise Kelly says U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo — apparently angered over some tough questioning — summoned her to his private living room at the State Department and challenged her to point to Ukraine on an unmarked map. Kelly — who has a master’s degree in European Studies from Cambridge — said she did. Pompeo (who’s set to arrive in Kyiv on January 30) later suggested Kelly had pointed to Bangladesh instead. How would you fare if you were called on the carpet by Pompeo?

My results on the quiz rated “not bad,” but I think I embarrassed myself.

Today is Up Helly Aa – a (sort of) Viking Festival marking the end of the Yule season – and also giving folks something to do during the bleak winter days.  There is fire – and drinking – what could possibly go wrong?

What is the frequency?

November 26, 2019

In the great tradition of Mole Day and Pi Day, November 23 was Fibonacci Day.  Why?  Because the date 11/23 represents the first numbers in the sequence identified by Leonardo Fibonacci, and Italian mathematician who was born in Pisa in 1170.

The Fibonacci Sequence starts with 1 plus 1 equals 2, and goes on with each number being the sum of the two numbers directly before it: 1 plus 2 equals 3; 2 plus 3 equals 5; 3 plus 5 equals 8, and so on.

One of the beauties of the Fibonacci sequence is that the series is evident all over the natural world. Petal arrangements in flowers, the ordering of leaves in plants, the shell of the nautilus, the DNA molecule and even hurricanes show patterns that correspond to the sequence.  From time & date holidays

It is a sequence that has significance in science, mathematics and art.  In art, especially, construction of compositions based on the Fibonacci Sequence are recognized as aesthetically pleasing.

Tattoo artist Makkala Rose creates dramatic botanical designs on her clients’ skin, incorporating richly toned flower blossoms, unctuous fruits, and life-like animal portraits. One recent commission involved completely covering a client’s back with a chiaroscuro “painting” featuring three burning candles, reflective glass and crystals, piles of ripe fruit, and a hanging bat on an inky black background.
