The Evangelical Election Meltdown

Aw well beer is a totally acceptable bribe.

Some of the images that emerge when you split slate and shale are spectacularly beautiful. I remember seeing a video of people working on a slate rock in the Victorian era throwing away slates with images because they were deemed useless for the building industry that is until palaeontologists paid them beer money to save them. Thank goodness they did.

Quite the discovery here for BC.

 Mrs.B now that does look old? I've seen animals that existed at the same time as the dinosaurs but really looked old.

Jean-Bernard Caron can barely contain his excitement over a recent fossil discovery from the Burgess Shale in southeastern British Columbia.

"We are talking about something that is very, very old," the curator of invertebrate paleontology at the Royal Ontario Museum told the Calgary Eyeopener on Wednesday.

"At least 300 million years older than the first dinosaurs; about half a billion years."

It's everyday mysogyny as we've all experienced it. I'm glad Jocelyn Bell had parents who helped her and didn't accept the traditional gender roles. When I was young I heard "You don't need to know that." just too many times, so I made it my business to know as much as I could get into my head. Today it's a jumble of rather unorganized knowledge in my brain, but it was enough to help me get where I wanted. 

Comment was by Joan Denoo on August 1, 2021 at 2:08am

Stephen,  Jocelyn Bell Burnell's story is so much like the women of my generation. I was the first and only female majoring in horticulture when I went to the aggie school, Washington State College. 

My grandmothers took care of other people, their ironing, cleaning, and their bodies when they were too old to take care of themselves. 

My mother worked at Kaiser Rolling Mill during WW II because there weren't enough men to do the tasks. She was so good at her job she received promotions until she was in a supervisory role. As soon as the war ended she got her pink slip, as did all the women who worked in war industries. Her generation broke the tradition of "women's work."

My generation defined the fields we wanted in education and became the first in medical school, law school, and any profession they chose. When I bought my home in 1974 I had to have a husband, father, or son sign the mortgage papers. I was divorced and had no husband, my son was 10-years- old, and my father signed for me. I was the one who paid off the obligation with my earnings.

Chris B the only solace from this story of misogyny is I believe things are slowly improving 

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on August 1, 2021 at 1:27am

Jocelyn Bell actually made the discovery of Pulsars,

but Anthony Hewish got the Nobel Prize what an injustice.

I remember watching the children's TV show BluePeter about her discovery not knowing what happened later on about the Nobel Prize.
