Magic.
"Then she starts weaving it, but as the sign on the door says, it is not for sale.
"It would be like commercialising the flight of an eagle," Vigo says.
"The byssus is the soul of the sea. It is sacred."
She gives the fabric to people who come to her for help. It may be a couple who have decided to marry or who have married, a woman who wants a child, or one who has recently become pregnant. Byssus is believed to bring good fortune and fertility.
"Before it was emperors [who wore byssus], now it is young women and newlywed couples," Vigo says. "I weave for outcasts, the poor, people in need.""
Silk is usually made from the cocoons spun by silkworms - but there is another, much rarer, cloth known as sea silk, or byssus, which comes from a clam.

"IS has ransacked and demolished several similar ancient sites that pre-date Islam in Iraq, denouncing them as symbols of "idolatry".
The sale of looted antiquities is nevertheless one of the group's main sources of funding. It has also been accused of destroying ancient sites to gain publicity." #archaeology  
Satellite analysis confirms the destruction of the most significant temple in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra, the United Nations says.

The iconic actor and his wife of 61 years have amassed an $80 million fortune, and now they are planning to give back to a range of causes, from Children's Hospital Los Angeles and the Anne Douglas Center for Women to their biggest passion, the Motion Picture & Television Fund.

Am still reading this. This is Scott Adams (Dilbert) explaining Trump.

"Allow me to describe some of the hypnosis and persuasion methods Mr. Trump has employed on you. (Most of you know I am a trained hypnotist and this topic is a hobby of mine.)
For starters, Trump literally wrote the book on negotiating, called The Art of the Deal. So we know he is familiar with the finer points of persuasion. For our purposes today, persuasion, hypnosis, and negotiating all share a common set of tools, so I will conflate them. 
Would Trump use his negotiation and persuasion skills in the campaign? Of course he would. And we expect him to do just that. 
But where is the smoking gun of his persuasion? Where is his technique laid out for us to see.
Everywhere. "

"In horses, cows and pigs, the embryo simply sits on the surface of the womb lining. In dogs and cats, the foetuses dig in a little more. But in humans and other primates, a foetus will dig through all the womb lining to directly bathe in its mother's blood."
Apart from humans and our close relatives, the only animals that menstruate are elephant shrews and certain bats. Why did it only evolve in these species?

( more catching up ). Beautiful writing.
"Much of Kennedy’s explanation of why the right to marry meets this standard drips with the same kind of purple pose that Kennedy used in his past opinions. “From their beginning to their most recent page, the annals of human history reveal the transcendent importance of marriage,” begins one section of the Court’s opinion. “Marriage is sacred to those who live by their religions and offers unique fulfillment to those who find meaning in the secular realm,” Kennedy continues. “Its dynamic allows two people to find a life that could not be found alone, for a marriage becomes greater than just the two persons. Rising from the most basic human needs, marriage is essential to our most profound hopes and aspirations.”
Yet beneath all of this florid language, it is also clear that Kennedy understands, at a very basic and personal level, the humanity that he shares with men and women who happen to be gay. The most moving portion of the Obergefell opinion isn’t Kennedy’s soaring arias about the nature of marriage, it is his simple recitation of the facts of this case." etc
Justice Anthony Kennedy is a conservative Republican. The irony of Obergefell v. Hodges is that it is also a socially conservative opinion.
