Szarlotka, otherwise known as Polish Apple Cake, is a dessert my paternal grandmother (babcia) used to make. Not only did my babcia make a delicious szarlotka, she was an amazing lady who was a big part of the Polish resistance against the Germans in WWII. Unfortunately she passed away many years ago and I never had a chance to get her recipe. Over time I’ve made several szarlotkas, experimenting to make one similar to what she made. I think babcia would be very proud of this one! by ericka

The oldest bird of prey nest ever recorded, a 2500 year old falcon nest, has been discovered in Greenland. Three other nests, each over 1,000 years old, have also been found, one of which contains feathers from a bird that lived more than 600 years ago.  Kurt Burnham of the University of Oxford: "To date, this is the longest continually used (and currently used) raptor nest ever documented." by eddie

Jen and Shawn's Quilt.  Long time to complete this.  They were married over 5 years ago. Rings were done for the wedding but I decided to add the hand-appliquéd border.  I love piecing but hand stitching - not so much.  So I only stitched when I was in the mood in order to be sure each stitch held love. I used patterns by Judy Niemeyer, Kathy Delaney, Margaret Docherty and Four Corners. The pansy bouquets each hold 18 pansies. A big thank you to by ora

The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.

The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.

Over 100 years ago, Albert Einstein first predicted the existence of gravitational waves. Essentially, gravitational waves are ripples in the space-time continuum caused by major events in the cosmos, such as a supernova explosion.     ~These newfound results show that Einstein may have been right all along. The data could be used to create better detectors for gravitational waves, and also sets the stage to improve our knowledge about the Universe. by carolina

Pessaries (300s BC - 1900s) A pessary is a vaginal suppository used to kill sperm and/or block their passage through the cervix. It's one of the oldest contraceptive devices, having been used for over 3,000 years in various cultures. Ancient pessaries were often made from  animal feces (crocodile in Egypt, elephant in India), along with a honey, ground up fruit and bark. Once inserted, the pessary would melt at body temperature and form an impenetrable covering on the cervix. by ashlee
