Astronomers Discover Rare Solar System

Where Planets Orbit in Mathematical Harmony

The “resonant” planets could provide insight about how
such systems form and evolve—and why our own solar
system is not synced up.

A Gathering of Nations
Images from McKenney & Hall's History of the Indian
Tribes of North America

"Thomas Loraine McKenney (1785-1859) served as Commissioner
of Indian Affairs 1824-1830.  In that capacity he commissioned
and collected portraits of Native Americans for his Gallery in
the War Department.  Most of the portraits were painted by
Charles Bird King (1785-1862) in Washington, D.C.,
during visits of Native delegations. McKenney's goal was to
publish a record of vanishing peoples: portraits, biographical
sketches, and a history of North American Indians.  He
accomplished this in the first issue of
History of the Indian Tribes of North America, published in
three volumes between 1836 and 1844.
143 Native American portraits are preserved in McKenney &
Hall's monumental work."

Why is this important?

"The History of the Indian Tribes of North America is a record of
vanishing peoples: portraits, biographical sketches, and a history
of North American Indians.  It is one of the finest and most
beautiful examples of hand-colored American lithography. 
It is one of the earliest collections of Native American portraits. 
Because most of the original portraits were destroyed in a fire
in the Smithsonian Institution in 1865 these images form the
only record not only of the individuals portrayed, but also of
important works of 19th Century American artists."
If you want to see Native people as they looked 200 years
ago, in their finest clothes, in their proud dignity, this is
the prime source.

All Things British Past And Present
by Gwynethe Bell


Most people know her as a film actress, but she worked
with the resistance groups during WW2 to defeat the Nazis.
The 15-year-old Hepburn delivered a resistance newspaper.
"I stuffed them in my woolen socks in my wooden shoes, got
on my bike and delivered them," she said. Paper was in short
supply, you see, so each edition was printed on paper smaller
than a napkin. Hepburn's age and ability to speak English
made her uniquely qualified to avoid suspicion. So the
15-year-old future star could slip into an area of downed
Allied pilots to pass messages and bear food packages.
If she had been caught, though, it would have been disastrous.


This was in Belgium during World War Two 1940-1945.

Wow never knew this, what a
brave young woman she was.

Sami People: Facts And History
The Sami (Sámi) people, who live in the
far north of Europe, have never had a
sovereign state of their own, and today,
they live in four countries: Norway,
Sweden, Finland, and Russia.
Approximately 80,000 Sami people live
in these four countries; however, around
half live in almost all parts of Norway.
Currently, there are Sami political, cultural,
and youth organizations in all four countries
and a Sami Parliament in each of the three
Scandinavian ones. Lots of pictures and facts.

fundamental level in the organisation of the living
world. So in order to understand Cell Biology, we
should study all the aspects of the structure and

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am one of the Brittanies here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lily and I are American Brittanies, both
rescues, and both South Dakota natives. When we're not
helping out on the site, we patrol the property,
chase rabbits and squirrels, say hi to the kids at the school
playground and the dogs next door, rack out on our beds, ask
for treats, and hang out with our humans!
