Clyde Bellecourt is a White Earth Ojibwe civil rights organizer noted for co-founding the American Indian Movement in 1968 with Dennis Banks, Herb Powless, and Eddie Benton Banai, among others. His older brother, the late Vernon Bellecourt, was also active. Clyde was the seventh of twelve children born to his parents on the White Earth Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota. His Ojibwe name is Nee-gon-we-way-we-dun which means "Thunder Before the Storm." And good Christ, I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks Bernie Sanders sounds exactly like Larry David.
The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed, commonly known as Saint Basil's Cathedral, is a church in Red Square in Moscow. Now a museum, the original building contained eight side churches arranged around the ninth, central church of Intercession; the tenth church was erected in 1588 over the grave of venerated local saint, Vasily. The building is shaped as a flame of a bonfire rising into the sky, a design that has no analogues in Russian architecture. Dmitry Shvidkovsky, in his book Russian Architecture and the West, states, "it is like no other Russian building. Nothing similar can be found in the entire millennium of Byzantine tradition from the fifth to fifteenth century ... a strangeness that astonishes by its unexpectedness, complexity and dazzling interleaving of the manifold details of its design." The cathedral foreshadowed the climax of Russian national architecture in the 17th century. And if you try to find that photo, by the way, you'll find there's a little too much construction going on to find the exact right spot.
Lions, particularly male lions, have been an important symbol for thousands of years and appear as a theme in cultures across Europe, Asia, and Africa. Despite the recorded incidents of attacks on humans, lions enjoy positive depiction in popular culture as creatures that appear strong, but gentle at the same time. The most consistent depiction is in keeping with their image of "king of the jungle" or "king of the beasts", hence lions are popular symbols of royalty and stateliness and a symbol of bravery. Find exactly where this King of the Jungle is protecting.
Remember it was just one short year ago when the Obama administration presented a convoluted rationale by which M855 -- the second most popular variety of ammunition used in the nation's most popular rifle -- was to be banned from sale to civilians? Here's a one year retrospective on the struggle to keep M855 safe and available to everyone.
Shrapnel scrappers in the impact zone. Damn.... Pete
Ernie, here's a picture for your regular “Find this woman” challenge. Louis, Houton, TX
If'n I'm not mistaken, your photo was taken right about here, the Kurfurstendamm U-Bahn station to the left, and the building with the -- for lack of better words -- "split stype pillar facade" on the right. I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. Meanwhile, move along folks, nothing to see here, just Lyndsey Vonn doing pullups while wearing nothing but her painted on bikini. YOU ARE FUCKING WELCOME.
Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside. Despite not using an engine, paragliders flight can last many hours and cover many hundreds of miles, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of miles are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand feet.
