He was one of seventeen children born to Josiah Franklin, one of ten born by Josiah’s second wife, Abiah Folger.

Josiah wanted Ben to attend school with the clergy, but only had enough money to send him to school for two years.

Although his parents talked of the church as a career for Franklin, his schooling ended when he was ten.  More Nutty Facts

Rogue Microwave Ovens Are the Culprits Behind Mysterious Radio Signals

Posted By Staff

Date: April 13th, 2015

Category: Science

radioFor years, astronomers had been puzzled by these brief but intense bursts of radio waves that in some ways appeared to be coming from deep space. There have been dozens of reported perytons, some dating back to the 1990s, and theories about the signals’ origin included ball lightning, aircraft, and components of the telescopes themselves.

But almost since the beginning, one thing has been clear about perytons: Despite mimicking a deep space signal, they’re produced by a source that’s somewhere near Earth. Astronomers knew this because perytons simultaneously show up in multiple viewing fields rather than arriving from a single point.

In this respect, perytons are very much unlike their cousins called fast radio bursts, highly energetic signals that truly appear to be coming from very, very far away and have no known origin.

If you open the microwave door before the timer goes off, the thing in the oven that produces microwaves – it’s called a magnetron – hasn’t had a chance to completely shut off. And so, the microwave oven is briefly transmitting radio waves into the open.  More

robotJapan – Decommissioning work at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has suffered a setback after a robot sent in to a damaged reactor to locate melted fuel stalled hours into its mission and had to be abandoned.

The plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power, said the robot stopped moving on Friday during its first inspection of the containment vessel inside reactor No 1, one of the three reactors that suffered meltdown after the plant was struck by an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.

Tepco, which recently conceded that the technology for robots to retrieve the nuclear fuel had yet to be developed, said on Monday it would cut the cables to the stranded robot and postpone a similar inspection using a separate device.  More

Thousands March Through Snow Protesting Global Warming

globalThe Globe and Mail reports the “Act On Climate Change” march included “representatives from First Nations, environmental activists and political groups” who are trying to convince politicians to ban oil sands extraction and prevent pipelines from being built to bring that oil to market.

Protesters dressed in red even marched in a formation that made a thermometer, meant to “send a message about climate change,” the Globe and Mail reported.

If it were a real thermometer it would have shown temperatures at a chilly 44 degrees Fahrenheit by 4 p.m. — the high for the day.

Photos of the march show protesters and onlookers alike bundled up, walking over sleet and snow to protest global warming which scientists predicted over a decade ago would eventually mean the “end of snow.”  More

two collegeFlorida – Two college students have been charged in connection to an unconscious girl who was allegedly gang raped on a Florida beach during Spring Break in broad daylight, authorities said.

Troy University students Delonte’ Martistee, 22, of Georgia and Ryan Austin Calhoun, 23, of Alabama were charged on Friday with sexual battery by multiple perpetrators relating to the incident that occurred between March 10-12, according to Bay County Sheriff’s Office.

According to WFSA, it has been confirmed by university officials that both men were suspended, and Martistee, a promising track star, has been removed from the team.

Friday’s charges stem from a video police found where hundreds of people are seen watching the incident without attempting to intervene during the alleged attack on Panama City Beach, authorities claim.  More

FINAL TOAST!

raidersThey once were among the most universally admired and revered men in the United States .. There were 80 of the Raiders in April 1942, when they carried out one of the most courageous and heart-stirring military operations in this nation’s history. The mere mention of their unit’s name, in those years, would bring tears to the eyes of grateful Americans.

Now only four survive.
After Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, with the United States reeling and wounded, something dramatic was needed to turn the war effort around.

Even though there were no friendly airfields close enough to Japan for the United States to launch a retaliation, a daring plan was devised. Sixteen B-25s were modified so that they could take off from the deck of an aircraft carrier. This had never before been tried — sending such big, heavy bombers from a carrier.  Continued

faizChicago – Preliminary results of a child welfare investigation have led officials to believe that the father of a 3-year-old girl found wandering the streets alone near a suburban forest preserve earlier this week not only left her there intentionally but left her in a trash can, authorities said Thursday.

“Initially, our investigation has shown that the father left the child in a garbage can and drove away,” said Andrew Flach, spokesman for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

As DCFS officials continue to investigate the father regarding allegations of neglect, Cook County authorities also moved forward on a criminal investigation, issuing an arrest warrant Thursday for the girl’s father, Faiz Ikramulla.  More

plateHOUSTON – A Houston man said his license plate is being revoked by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles after officials discovered a hidden “offensive” message.

Safer Hassan said he had the customized plate for three years without incident, but he received a letter from the state DMV saying his “370H55V” plate was being recalled after it was “determined that the personalization is offensive.”

“People have no idea what that plate means. My closest friends don’t even know,” Hassan told KPRC-TV.

The trouble, Hassan said, is that the seemingly random collection of numbers and letters turns into a clear profanity when it is viewed upside-down.  More

The 38-year-old blonde had collected six husbands before the first one filed for divorce in 2002. She added three more before the second one dumped her in 2003.
