Don Coles, 90, a revered poet who wrote mind-expanding verse - The Globe and Mail
Less well known is how Mr. Coles, who only published his own first book when he was in his late 40s, quietly mentored other struggling writers. Flashing an acerbic red pen is an easy way to dominate, but Mr. Coles, who was never interested in scoring cheap points, always sought out something he could praise – an intriguing phrase or an incisive metaphor.

Mummy on the Titanic
After the ship sank (Stead perished with the ship), some of the surviving listeners who had been present at Stead's table repeated the tale, which by then had likely been exaggerated and distorted to better fit the situation. Whether by faulty memory, emotional melodramatization, or outright deception, a mummy, rather than a coffin-lid, had soon been placed aboard the Titanic, rather than in the halls of a faraway museum, and a legend was born, a legend that was to be built upon as time progressed. A cursory check of the details of the story will yield no verifying facts -- there was no mummy aboard the Titanic.

Curse of the Open Tomb
In 1999, Gotthard Kramer, a German microbiologist from the University of Leipzig, analyzed 40 mummies and identified several potentially dangerous mold spores on each one. Mold spores are stalwart and are able to survive for thousands of years. Kramer speculates that the flow of fresh air into a newly opened tomb can blow the spores into the air where they may be inhaled. "When spores enter the body through the nose, mouth or eye mucous membranes," he wrote, "they can lead to organ failure or even death, particularly in individuals with weakened immune systems."

It is evident that tiny organisms -- airborne spores -- pose much more of a threat to archaeologists and Egyptologists than curses found inscribed on tomb walls. Indeed, they are a known risk and may yet kill again.

Log gamma curves do have a shadow roll off that mimics the real world shadow roll off. As a result log gammas really don’t like being under exposed, instead they prefer to be over exposed. So unlike conventional gamma where we “protect the highlights” with log gamma you need to “protect the shadows”. Under exposed log looks bad. It will lack color and it will be noisy and grainy.

Aspen Ladd comments on weight miss, Leslie Smith not accepting fight - MMA Fighting
1.8 pounds over for weigh ins can be a huge advantage because her actual weight would have been significantly higher after reloading all the water she had cut up to that point by fight night and her body wouldn’t have had to endure the strain of the full weight cut.

Latvia Bank Killing – Washington Financial Warfare on Russia
All evidence in the Latvian bank killing points to a new phase of US financial warfare against Russia and Russia’s ability to avert the effects of those US sanctions. The timing is suspicious as well, as it comes just days before the important March 18 Russian presidential election.

Following the EU actions against Cyprus banks in August 2012 where the controversial “bail-in” practice was tested by forcing bank depositors above a certain amount to “bail in” and face loss, Russian corporate offshore funds reportedly moved to Latvia as an alternative. Since Latvia joined the Euro in 2014 Latvia has become a major channel to allow Russian corporations and banks to operate within the EU. The ABLV became the major beneficiary of that Russian inflow.
