Scientists delve further into the nature radioactivity and discover alchemists were right about something. Well, sort of.
In this installment on the history of atom theory, physics professor (and my dad) Dean Zollman demonstrates a truism of science—how one discovery leads to even more questions. In this case, researc...

Why I have prayer beads made of roses in "The Ashes of Heaven's Pillar."

Here some interesting tidbits I read about the Confederate flag: It was rejected as the Confederacy's official flag but incorporated into two flags later. It practically died and then it regained popularity in the 1940s when people began to wave it at football games. In 1948, the Dixiecrat party  adopted it as a symbol against the federal government, and it became a symbol of resistance thereafter, with the KKK eventually using it (although they never adopted it as their flag).

Prayer beads were around for a long time before they were called rosaries.
