SWEDEN FIRST RELEASE OF LINUX
August 25, 1991 - Sweden
Linus Torvalds releases his first version of the Linux operating system kernel (0.01 of Linux)" called 'Freax' in the makefile to the world and announces it through a Usenet posting on a newsgroup which could be found on the ftp server at the Helsinki University of Technology (HUT). The Linux operating system is a Unix-like operating system kernel and is distributed under GNU General Public License. The original kernel was based on earlier work done by Richard Stallman on the GNU Project, started in 1984. The majority of the servers on the internet I.E. (where this site and millions of others) use Apache software that runs on top of the Linux kernel.
NEW STEAM CAR LAND SPEED RECORD
August 25, 2009 - California, U.S.A.
A new steam-powered car land speed was broken, for the first time in over a century. In two trials, Charles Burnett III reached 136 mph (136 km/h) and 151 mph (243 km/h) in. The previous record was over a century old, set by Fred Marriott on 26 Jan 1906, in a Stanley Steamer racing car. Burnett drove a British-built car named Inspiration at the Edwards Air Force Base in California, U.S.A. The 25-ft long, 3-ton car burned liquid petroleum gas to create 400Â°C steam from 12 suitcase-sized boilers. The steam drove a two-stage turbine at 13,000 rpm which powered the wheels. The design was an outgrowth of a 1997 student project at Suthampton University. Setting a record requires two trials in opposite direction to average out any wind effect.

"...I love you for that certain smile that cheers me when I'm blue,
I love you for your tender kiss that warms me through and through.
I love you for your gentle hand, your understanding touch,
Your eyes that always seem to say, "I love you very much."
I love you for your faith in me, your sweet and patient ways,
And for the thoughtful things you do so often without praise.
I love you so for all these things and many others, too...
But most of all for what I am whenever I'm with you!...."
A Change is Gonna Come
by Meredith Grey
"...Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But here's the truth: Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything...."

The Earth is the only place
about Earth Day
The Earth is the only place in the entire Universe where we know that life exists. But that won'at be true forever. To us, our Earth seems huge, solid, tailor-made for us, and permanent. But that is just one perspective, born of living on its surface. From a different perspective, none of those things is true. Seen from space, it looks much less unbreakable. Seen from deep space, it shrinks to nothing more than a dot, barely visible in the reflected light of the Sun. From another star, even seeing our planet at all would be a colossal task. We are, after a monumental effort spanning decades, only just now finding other planets orbiting other stars. Are any like Earth? Almost certainly, and in fact there may be billions of planets like ours orbiting alien stars. But while they are like ours, they arena't ours. As with any individual, our world is unique, and precious, and wonderful. Leta's keep it that way.
