Milk And Honey Bath

VAV!/February 4, 2014

Cleopatra, a sensual and wanton woman of mystery and intrigue, was a queen at 18 and ruled most of the entire eastern Mediterranean coast. As a calculating and shrewd leader, she enjoyed the love interests, liaisons and military alliances with the forbidden and the powerful including Roman leaders, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. She was a declared goddess who revealed her very mystique through a show of pageantry and guile.  Her life, in total, was epic.  Her powers of seduction and sultry exotic beauty were to be reckoned with.  

Despite power and riches, or in spite of these worldly treasures, Cleopatra killed herself on August 12, 30 B.C. The facts of her demise remain unclear....was it the famous asp that killed the queen, or a vial of poison?

Asteroid And Comets Passing Near Earth Are Mapped

VAV!/January 26, 2014 NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) spacecraft has been collecting data about asteroids and comets passing near Earth since December 2013.   NEOWISE has discovered and characterized 40 near-Earth objects (NEOs) in the first year after the mission was re-started in December 2013.*  Eight of the discoveries have been classified as potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs), based on their size and how close their orbits could come to Earth's orbit. The mission has further observed and characterized 245 previously known near-Earth objects. From December 2013 to December 2014, NEOWISE discovered three new comets and observed 32 others. One of the others has turned into the brightest comet in Earth's night sky in early 2015, comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy). Now, NASA has compiled the data to create the below video, that shows the progression of NASA's NEOWISE survey in the year after its Dec. 2013 restart. Each dot represents an asteroid or comet that the mission observed.

Playboy Magazine

Pictured above: The cover of the first issue of Playboy, December 1953. VAV!/December 26, 2010  How did "Playboy" , a men's lifestyle magazine that features photographs of nude women as well as journalism and fiction, begin?  After failed efforts of becoming a cartoonist, Hugh Hefner founded and launched Playboy in 1953 from the kitchen table of his South Side apartment in Chicago, IL.  Hefner, a 1949 University of Illinois psychology graduate who had worked in Chicago for Esquire magazine writing promotional copy; Publisher's Development Corporation in sales and marketing; and Children's Activities magazine as circulation promotions manager could likely never have dreamed about the social phenomena that Playboy eventually generated. In fact, the first issue of Playboy had no cover date because Hefner was unsure when or if he would ever publish another. Playboy became an almost instant success after the first issue sold more than 53,000 copies.   In addition to the center-fold pinups that made the magazine infamous, famous and an inspiration to men and women worldwide, Mr. Hefner filled its pages with words from the most prolific  fiction writers of all time.  Names such as James Baldwin,  John Steinbeck and Vladimir Nabokov poured into the readers' view, as well as advice from columnists, submission of readers letters, a variety of comic strips and more. A closer look at Hugh Hefner's philosophy through a series of videos below...
