A Brief History On May 19, 2001, this site’s owner, Dr. Zar, then a student at the United Methodist Church affiliated Baldwin-Wallace College, departed from Ohio for France as part of a class trip.  Studying abroad is an excellent choice for many students. It gives them a chance to learn in a new place and learn new lessons that they might not have been exposed to if they’d only studied on their local campus. For Christian students, though, a semester abroad can be a chance to grow spiritually as well as academically. There are a few things that you can…

A Brief History On February 26, 2013, a sightseeing hot air balloon over Luxor, Egypt, was carrying 20 passengers and the pilot when something went horribly wrong.  A leaking fuel line caused a fire to break out on the balloon when it was only a few meters off the ground, and the ensuing flames caused the balloon to rise dramatically.  Engulfed in flames, some passengers jumped out of the gondola to their deaths, while others stayed in the passenger compartment until the balloon exploded, killing 19 of the 21 people that had been aboard, the worst death toll in hot…

A Brief History On February 24, 2007, Japan launched a spy satellite into orbit, presumably to help keep track of threats to Japan from their neighbors China and North Korea.  Maybe Russia, too.  Since the United States and the Soviet Union engaged in the “Space Race” in the late 1950’s and 1960’s, several other nations have joined the club of nations with the ability to launch rockets into outer space.  Used for weather monitoring, Earth mapping, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), research, communications (radio, telephone, television, digital), exploring other planets and even beyond, and spying on other countries, space programs have…

A Brief History On February 20, 2019, we celebrate another National Love Your Pet Day, as if we had to be reminded.  Back on May 8, 2015, we featured an article about the Westminster Dog Show and we waxed poetic about the virtues of having a dog and a little about the history of dogs.  While we understand many people want to keep pets other than dogs (no, we really do not understand), we prefer canine companions, especially from the Hound group.  Yes, we have had other pets and loved them a lot, but the dogs love you back!

A Brief History On February 18, 2015, ABC News reporter Michelle Charlesworth wrote an article titled “Decode your food cravings to find out what your body really needs.”  Do you ever feel like you just cannot stop eating?  Well, we all do. Increased appetite and cravings for some foods more than others is a super normal, natural thing, but if you are getting the same kind of cravings all the time, your body might be trying to tell you something. It is important for you to look beyond your cravings and figure out what they actually mean so you can…
