I don't know what it is, but there doesn't have to be a reason anyways... I could go off on a Billy Joel rant from this point, and that might cheer me up...but I just don't know. Does anyone have some level of understanding of something pertaining to something like something that resembles pre-vacation blues or something?
Remember the Scott Expedition, of which three members died 100 years ago today
"Every day we have been ready to start for our depot 11 miles away, but outside the door of the tent it remains a scene of whirling drift. I do not think we can hope for any better things now. We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker, of course, and the end cannot be far. It seems a pity but I do not think I can write more. R. Scott. For God's sake look after our people."
Does anyone know anything special about Amerigo Vespucci?
I don't want any of you complaining about my lack of knowledge or to inundate me with theories about who really discovered the New World, I just need to know a few things about the voyage in which he discovered America...let's just say that it's for my Symphony.
Brace yourselves, WebDippers, we have an opportunity to say something that actually matters for a change! (Brits only, sadly). Instead of making the same old arguments to the same old people, why not say something to the government as they consider new legislation?
So a professor apparently nominated me to attend the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Lauretes (http://www.nobelsummitchicago.org) in Chicago next month. I'll get to see two panels, one on nuclear non-proliferation and the other being the closing panel. But I actually know very little about any of these people. I will obviously do research of my own, but I'd appreciate it if anyone could post any cool info they have (links, sources, anecdotes, etc.).
The panelists are:

President Oscar Arias Dr. Shirin Ebadi Mrs. Ingeborg Breines, International Peace Bureau International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War Dr. Jayantha Dhanapala, PUGWASH Conferences
“A Final Conversation with the Laureates” Moderator: Jim Wooten
Panelists to include:
