Thomas Aquinas is the only subject matter expert consulted for this article? Other than unfounded skepticisim, the author provides nothing other than ridicule.
Modern research tells a different story: http://expandedconsciousness.com/2014/02/2…
The offer of a cup of coffee is as insulting as the rest of this article.
@Dwain1 Thanks so much for the link to Dr. Parker's talk--probably a good thing I didn't see this before writing my story, I'd never have gotten it into my 500-word limit! Yep, follow up story this summer on the Kelsey NRT. (And the parallel trail thru Cuddihy)
One more reference Dr. Parker posted on my Facebook page. This is VERY interesting and well written...
It could hardly get more gruesome.
Here's a little more of the story...
"In 1848, during the California Gold Rush Ben took fifty Pomo men from his brother Andrew's rancho near Kelseyville, on Rancho Lupyomi, to the Sierra foothills in a gold mining venture, establishing a mining camp called Kelsey Diggings. Once at the diggings, Ben decided it was more profitable to sell all the company’s supplies to other miners and then ill with malaria, he headed back to his home at Sonoma. The Pomo workers, forced to camp near a hostile group of local Indians and suffering from malaria and starvation, were left on their own. Only one or two are thought to have survived. This mistreatment of the Pomo and that of Andrew and his partner later provoked the Bloody Island Massacre."
So 48 Pomo died at Kelsey's Diggins and then two Whites died [having sent the 48 to their graves], and then 200 more Pomo were killed at Bloody Island in retribution against the "Digger's."
Yep, that's our very own "cultural" history. Lovely, ain't it?
As for the trail, I know it goes across the Siskiyous before the Marbles (coming from the west.) I have been to the Siskiyou trail summit at Harrington Mountain. I didn't know at the time it had so many tears shed behind it, but I remember it being very a very somber place (super thick fog.)
manifest destany/what a croc
I appreciate what is here, but... There really is a lot more to this story and it is a very interesting one. The building of the trail itself would be appropriate to include here, would have supported the article's premise, and would have helped flesh out the article better than a reiteration of an earlier piece. Perhaps a bit of a mention of what it means to have a trail designated as an NRT. Was there a strict word limit on this piece?
Thanks Barry! Great slice of history, for better or worse...
Bastards wherever they went. If it is of any consolation, when Stone and Kelsey were killed, one of them managed to crawl across the creek whereby the Pomo WOMEN finished him off with rocks.
And yes, we have our own Bloody Island down here, as a result, with 50-200 Pomo massacred by US troops in retaliation for the Stone/Kelsey killings.
Two problems, though, 1) the Pomo who were murdered were NOT of the band that killed Stone and Kelsey, and 2) Stone and Kelsey deserved it and then some.
As a resident of Kelseyville, I am disgusted with the namesake. Please, in the future, refer to my area as "Konocti."
I suspected as much over 30 years ago. Only, I thought we got here by ships. (I'm still holding onto that theory, btw)
The problem with General Relativity is political, not scientific.
Hi John, very much appreciate this.
“The metaphor of space as a temporal dimension allows [Einstein] to do his calculations…But that doesn’t mean we have to understand that theory as characterizing the objetively true nature of the universe.” (Philosophy in the Flesh, George Lakoff) That is, I present, in outline, a metaphorical way to understand gravity (“Mass tells space how to curve, space tells mass how to move”). As do you. I happen to think my metaphor is more easily understood than yours (rubber sheets and all that). My sun revolves around the Earth, your Earth revolves around the sun. But c’mon, it’s all metaphor!
Please read parts 2 and 3 of my story before concluding that the 1919 measurement was “trivial.”
As you say, Einstein’s divorce settlement from Mileva pledged the money from any future Nobel Prize to her and their two sons. The decision to award him the 1921 prize for physics was bitterly debated (and delayed a full year), and was given, not for his paradigm-breaking relativity theories but for his (much less important) 1905 paper on the photoelectric effect. Jeffrey Crelinsten’s book “Einstein’s Jury” sorts it all out.
General Relativity is Maxwell's Equations with Time taken independent of Space into a 4th dimension. Gravity is mass bending Time, having absolutely nothing to do with the "warping of Space". Time expands and contracts Space, that is to say, if there is no Time in the space between two points they are touching; also called an Einstein-Rosen bridge. It was trivial to measure the 1.61 arc second deflection of light in the photographs.
The far more difficult part of the process was presenting GR to the Nobel Committee and Einstein's eventual capitulation and the substitution of the imaginary photon for GR, in order for Einstein to pay off his divorce settlement with his first wife. Then in the 1930's what Einstein referred to as "boundless stupid" was funded by the Nobel Committee, ie black holes and dark matter.
Looks like it survived, but just, its close swing around the sun.
Spritzer is best bet for IR wavelengths, detected CO2 recently in IR
How does this event look in the Near Infrared and Infrared spectrums? VATT in Arizona has a LUCIFER telescope with can see events in that frequency range. Are you pinging them for data as well
@barryevans: Stop patronizing. The Hindu, formerly a reputable paper with high ideals has been nobbled by western and Israeli interest for quite a while now. You probably assume that as it is an Indian paper and the commentators are also Indians that one should accept it as truth bound.
Why don't you do proper research instead of just googling - an indolent act indeed.
S.N. Bose was not the only non European who has been air'brushed by the current power whose mendacity and avariciousness is pushing the human race to premature extinction.
You'll find countless numbers of non-Europeans comprising Africans, "American" Africans, Chinese, Indians, Pakistanis etc who are also not duly recognized.
Check "The faces of Science: African Americans in the Sciences" for the numerous numbers of contributors in all the fields of academy, sciences and inventions for instance.
Check the likes of the genuinely honorable Jagdish Chandra Bose who was not interested in patenting his innovations in the many fields of sciences including the wireless enabling Marconi to adapt it as his own idea.
Check Ramanujan's analytical theory on numbers.
Check Chandrasekhar's contributions in astrophysics.
These are among the countless numbers on whose shoulders the greedy patent claimers on their egotistical path to claim fame and wealth.
This is not to say that there are no great thinkers, scholars, scientists and inventors from the West. East or West, everything, however great or small is sooner or later hijacked by the greedy force i have already described. The greedy bastards, be they Monsanto, Bill Gates, et al., are out claiming patent rights on nature's creation itself and also bottling water. What on earth for!
You, Barry, with a Welsh name like Evans should look at what happened to your people; their past society, culture and independence: the genocidal acts meted out against them as was the Scots and Irish by the perfidious force that enslaved it's own first.
What happened then continues on more rabidly now than ever.
Those who were surfs have now formed covenants with the egregious to be at their service. The Zionist owned corporations and the empire called the "USA", so brave are they at terrorizing and committing genocides on the weakest of people in order to steal their mineral wealth across the world.
Hey, I started reading this article and then I kinda got lost. I was gonna suggest a book that I just finished the other night (a long struggle) "The Quantum Brain". At first I thought it somehow correlated but now I'm not sure. I thought the book would be about how the human brain is similar to the proposed quantum computers. It was a bit too much for me (huge scientific verbage that lost me at times), but also deals with human conscience. Has anyone else read it. I sell on ebay and would send this to any Humboldt reader for $5 includiding S&H. Anyone interested?
Hi Raja, thanks for your note.
The Higgs particle is a boson, i.e. (and simplifying) a force-carrying elementary particle. Bosons were named after the India physicist Satyendra Nath Bose (1894-1974) by Paul Dirac in honor of Bose’s work on characterizing elementary particles (the Bose-Einstein statistics). Bose had nothing to do with the discovery of bosons, and certainly not with the Higgs particle.

S.N. Bose. What happened to him in all your very clever explanations. Even the Nazis and Stalin couldn't have matched your mendacity in erasing aspects in the history of the so-called "god Particle" Shame on you
