"It is not power that corrupts but fear. The fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it, and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it." -- Aung San Suu Kyi

 In February 1869, two British prospectors, John Deason and Richard Oates, were digging for gold in central Victoria, Australia, when their ax struck something hard very close to the surface. When Deason bent down to examine the large stone he thought was in the way, he found an enormous gold nugget – the largest nugget that anyone had ever seen, and ever would see. The length of the nugget was two feet and width was about one foot.

In June 1867, James Glaisher, an English astronomer and meteorologist, and an avid balloonist, was floating over Paris in a balloon when he entered an area of dense cloud:

This was not the first time Glaisher had heard music while flying through the clouds. Five years ago, Glaisher took off in a balloon over the city of Wolverhampton, England. At an altitude of 12,700 feet, he clearly heard a band playing music.

In 1867, Glaisher, together with other balloon enthusiasts, in particular, Camille Flammarion – a French astronomer, and Gaston Tissandier – a French meteorologist, began a series of experiments with balloon flights, and in two days, Flew from Paris to Solingen near Cologne. , Glaisher mentions hearing music and various voices several times during this trip while floating above the ground at an altitude of thousands of feet. “As we passed over Antony and Boulainvilliers we were charmed by some excellent orchestral music; Then we were completely surrounded by clouds, and each of them was about 3,280 feet above the city.''

 The rugged terrain of North Caucasus, nestled within the Russian Federation, is filled with ancient towers that stand as silent sentinels to an architectural tradition begun by the Ingush, Chechen and Vainakh peoples centuries ago. Spanning more than 4,000 years, these imposing structures served both defensive and residential purposes, with the surviving towers mainly dating from the 13th to 17th centuries, marking a period of resurgence in tower building.

 English inventor Sir Henry Bessemer, famous for his groundbreaking steelmaking process, which still bears his name, once lamented, "Few men suffer more seriously from seasickness than I do." Have suffered." Despite being one of the leading inventors of the Second Industrial Revolution, Bessemer's genius was not immune to personal trials. With over a hundred inventions in iron, steel and glass, most of which saw success, his attempt to build a ship to alleviate his chronic seasickness, however, ended in failure.

 Until about a century ago, in the Western world, you couldn't tell whether a small child was a girl or a boy by her clothing. All little children, regardless of their gender, dressed alike, with girls' clothes, girlish shoes, long hair and ponytails. Pants or breeches were not worn until boys were at least four years old, but some continued to wear skirts, gowns and petticoats until they were old enough – about eight years old. By age. By that time, boys would eagerly wait to wear their first pair of trousers. Wearing trousers was a very important milestone in a young boy's life, and this important event was celebrated with a ceremony called "breeching".

Earlier this week, a video went viral on social media, showing students protesting "furries" — people who identify as animals, wear animal-like apparel, and mimic animal behaviors — at Mt. Nebo Middle School in Payson, Utah, about an hour south of Salt Lake City, as Blaze News previously reported. Despite the number of students participating in the protest and the availability of evidence supporting their claims, the Salt Lake Tribune almost immediately issued a "fact-check" insisting that the furry allegations were likely false.

Blaze News spoke with multiple Mt. Nebo parents and students, including Kendalyn, the 13-year-old girl who orchestrated the walkout and the attending paper and online petitions. Through our conversations, Blaze News found evidence of students referring to one another as "furries," wearing animal clothing and masks in defiance of understood district dress code, and crawling about and growling in a manner that is likely to bother others. In other words, we have ample evidence that the allegations demand a good-faith investigation from the media, an investigation that the Salt Lake Tribune has thus far opted not to conduct.

The Pentagon is preparing to build its first new nuclear warhead in 40 years as a means to 'keep pace with future adversary threats' as tensions continue to grow worldwide. 

The W93 warhead, which will be designed to be launched from submarines, is part of a $19.3 billion budget being requested by the National Nuclear Security Agency in 2025. The production is set to begin in the mid 2030s. 

The revelation came as part of prepared remarks from Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm and NNSA Administrator Jill Hruby in a Senate testimony this week. 

Feasibility studies on the W93 have been underway at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, the birthplace of the atomic bomb, since 2022. All U.S. warheads begin life there in a plutonium pit that was built by engineers in the 1980s.

Former President Donald Trump has appeared at a Manhattan courthouse all week and expressed his dissatisfaction with the ongoing criminal case against him.

The jury for the case was selected after four days of deliberation, and alternative jurors are yet to be seated. Trump is facing 34 felony charges related to falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments. He has pleaded not guilty to all counts.

“I’m supposed to be in New Hampshire, I’m supposed to be in Georgia, I’m supposed to be in North Carolina, in South Carolina, I’m supposed to be a lot of places campaigning. But I’ve been here all day on a trial that really is a very unfair trial. These are all stories, this is from the last few days,” Trump declared while holding a stack of news articles slamming his trial.

Trump also flipped through articles from the Wall Street Journal and National Review before referencing Fox News legal analysts in an attempt to clear his name.
