We have a problem in The United States of America in regards to the inequality between genders. Most importantly, we have a more than 400-year old problem of racial tension between blacks and whites. I won't sugar-coat it with the politically correct terminology, but I won't be offensive about this issue either.
Maria-Anna 'Nannerl' Mozart was five years older than her younger brother, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and before his genius came to light, Nannerl was THE musical genius of the Mozart family and was well-known throughout Europe. Born to Leopold Mozart and his wife Anna Maria, in July 1751, their eldest and only daughter could play, and even compose, the most difficult musical pieces way before she was 12 years of age. Her father, Leopold, made several notations on his own musical pieces of the prodigal talent that both his beloved children possessed. In a letter dated in 1764, he wrote that she could play 'with incredible precision' the most difficult musical pieces and that 'although she is only 12 years old, was one of the most skillful players in all of Europe'.
Around 13.8 billion years ago, our Universe began with a Big Bang. The convergence and eventual collision of matter and anti-matter created a powerful explosion, known as the Big Bang. Scientists have a theory that for this to happen, there had to be something that brings about the process of inflation. Once inflation begins, not just one explosion, but many explosions will happen, at different places, during different times, for all of eternity. This is what scientists call 'Cosmological Inflation'.
After spending a few years with Netflix, last fall I switched over to Hulu for a change. I finally got to check out 'Game of Thrones', which got me hooked from the first episode. I got to find out what all the hub-bub was all about...and got stuck there like everyone else! Yanking myself back to a Netflix subscription to catch up on my old shows, I found myself with both Netflix AND Hulu for awhile. Only because I find new binge-watching worthy material all the time with Hulu. Just this past week I discovered a couple gems that have been hiding. One is 'A Quiet Place' starring its director and co-writer, John Krasinski, as Lee Abbot. This is NOT the 2016 Romanian movie of only 24 minutes of the same name, or game. This 2018 movie, 'A Quiet Place' is an emotionally moving flick that easily fits into multiple big screen genres at once: Drama, Science Fiction, Horror, and Thriller.
The fifth planet from our Sun, Jupiter, can be viewed in the night sky with a naked eye. Our ancestors recognized it as one of our brightest wandering lights. Venus, or 'Morning Star', is the only one brighter.
