A blue wave? Not quite. But the results in the first nationwide election of the Trump presidency still boosted the Democrats.

Infowars, so, let's pretend to be shocked by this speculation... And I hope we have the good fortune of celebrating Infowars finally being right about something: "The former Infowars Washington bureau chief, who recently testified before a federal grand jury in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, tells ABC News that after two months of closed-door talks with investigators, the special counsel has now indicated he will be charged within a matter of days."

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” - Marcel Proust

For the first time, archaeologists got a clue of significant importance from the north of Luxor, a city in Upper Egypt. They have discovered evidence of a tilted ramp with two sets of steps and a large number of postholes, on either side, which could have been used to hoist blocks from a quarry, through a sled.

Construction of the Pyramids
This 4,500-year-old ramp contraption may have been used to build the Great Pyramid, known to be one of the oldest manmade structures in the world, for the pharaoh, Khufu.

It has been conjectured that with the help of workers and ropes, the wooden posts lifted the sled uphill. The ropes connected with the sled acted something like a "force multiplier," making it easier to pull the sled up the ramp.

"This system is composed of a central ramp flanked by two staircases with numerous post holes. Using a sled which carried a stone block and was attached with ropes to these wooden posts, ancient Egyptians were able to pull up the alabaster blocks out of the quarry on very steep slopes of 20 percent or more", said Yannis Gourdon, co-director of the joint mission at Hatnub.

Therefore, the researchers and scientists realized that this was a special system to move and pull the pyramid’s 2.5-ton building blocks and statues, over 800 kilometers across the desert, from Aswan in southern Egypt to Giza in the north.

Also, the workers could have probably poured a small amount of water, across the sand, to restrict the sliding friction, in order to reduce manual labor.

According to an announcement by Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities, last week, this “unique system” was behind the mystery of the Great Pyramid that stood 139 meters tall (456 feet). This is also probably the first time that the archaeologists have discovered physical evidence of the use of a large transport system, meant for the pyramids’ construction.

The three Giza Pyramids were built for each of three pharaohs, Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. The Great Pyramid is the largest one ever made in Egypt. For many ancient writers, this was considered as one of the wonders of the world. Almost every one of these pyramids was made of limestone, while many of the sculptures, floors, and walls were crafted from alabaster.

Gourdon also said, "This kind of system has never been discovered anywhere else. The study of the tool marks and the presence of two [of] Khufu's inscriptions led us to the conclusion that this system dates back at least to Khufu's reign, the builder of the Great Pyramid in Giza. As this system dates back at least to Khufu's reign, that means that during the time of Khufu, ancient Egyptians knew how to move huge blocks of stone using very steep slopes. Therefore, they could have used it for the construction [of] his pyramid."

Ancient Engravings Reveal Organization of Egyptian Workers
At least 100 engravings were found at the slopes, which could indicate the actual internal organization of the workers and their construction campaigns from that time. These engravings, also showing the structure of Egyptian society, were an important type of art in the ancient world.

The steps and slopes were discovered near Hatnub, the location of Egyptian alabaster quarries, which was home to the seasonal workers, in the Eastern Desert, about 65 km (40 miles) southeast of modern el-Minya.

It is believed, to date, that the reign of King Khufu in the 4th dynasty was here, which ties up nicely to the time of the Great Pyramid’s construction.

It's Monday, November 12, 2018, and here are some of the highlights from the dozen or so posts I published today:

* Vice President Mike Pence wants a discussion about Donald Trump and his treatment of veterans. The White House may not like where this conversation ends up (https://on.msnbc.com/2DAOoj4).

* The fact that Trump rhetoric's about California fires is factually wrong is clearly a problem. But just as important is the fact that he's lashing out at an American state during a deadly natural disaster in the first place (https://on.msnbc.com/2zLpPfh).

* Many of Trump's failures as president relate to governing, but we're occasionally reminded of how routinely he struggles with simple, ceremonial tasks. Take his trip to France, for example, honoring the 100th anniversary of World War I (https://on.msnbc.com/2DgABgK).

* It's hard to say for sure who's been more irresponsible during the Florida recount: Trump or Gov. Rick Scott. Either way, the only real fraud in Florida is from those who've alleged fraud (https://on.msnbc.com/2RPMuhL).

* On a related note, in one of the nation's most closely watched U.S. Senate races, which Democrats appear to be winning, Republicans have turned to a familiar strategy: relying on Trump's conspiracy theories -- which isn't going well in Arizona (https://on.msnbc.com/2z6qWGD).

* In this year's final U.S. Senate race, a white Mississippi Republican is running against an African-American Democrat. With this in mind, the GOP candidate's recent joke about attending "a public hanging" was probably a bad idea (https://on.msnbc.com/2DBhjUn).

The physical object of what is a kilogramme is soon to be replaced by quantum calculations

"Sealed in a vault beneath a duke's former pleasure palace among the sycamore-streaked forests west of Paris sits an object the size of an apple that determines the weight of the world.

Forged against a backdrop of scientific and political upheaval following the French Revolution, a single, small cylinder of platinum-iridium alloy has laid largely undisturbed for nearly 130 years as the world's benchmark for what, precisely, is a kilogramme.

The international prototype of the kilogramme, or "Le Grand K" as it is tenderly known, is one of science's most hallowed relics, an analogue against which all other weights are compared and a totem of the metric system that accompanied the epoch of liberty, equality and fraternity.

It's so revered, in fact, that it's only been weighed four times since 1889 and the room housing it in the Pavillion de Breteuil may only be opened when the three living key holders—who for security reasons must be of different nationalities—turn the lock simultaneously.

And yet it's soon to be out of a job."
