Today's featured article

Bud Dunn (1918–2001) was a horse trainer who specialized in training and showing Tennessee Walking Horses. Born in 1918 on a farm in Scott County, Kentucky, he later moved to Florence, Alabama, where he owned and operated Bud Stables, a show horse training stable that produced twenty World Championships. He additionally trained and rode two horses who won the World Grand Championship at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, a national-level horse show held annually in or near Shelbyville, Tennessee. Dunn's first World Grand Championship came in 1992 with the bay stallion Dark Spirit's Rebel, and the second in 1999 with a son of that stallion, RPM. At the time of RPM's win, Dunn was 81 years old, making him the oldest winning rider on record. For his contributions, he was twice named Trainer of the Year, and was inducted into the Tennessee Walking Horse Hall of Fame and the Lauderdale County Sports Hall of Fame. Dunn's son Steve also became a successful horse trainer, winning two World Grand Championships. (Full article...)

Banknotes of the Czechoslovak koruna (1919)

A 1,000-korun banknote from the first issue of the Czechoslovak koruna, the national currency of Czechoslovakia from 1919 to 1939 and from 1945 to 1993. The issue, which consisted of denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 1000 korun, used banknotes of the Austro-Hungarian Bank to which adhesive stamps equal to 1/100 the value of the note were affixed.

Dendrogramma is a monotypic genus of siphonophore identified in 2014 from a collection of specimens gathered in 1986. Although specimens were at first identified as two species, D. enigmatica and D. discoides, these were later shown to represent varieties of a single species. When Dendrogramma was first discovered, it was speculated that the genus could not be classified into any existing phylum. However, examination of RNA material identified it as a siphonophore in 2016. The specimens are presumed to represent parts (bracts) of a larger organism whose entire morphology is unknown.

This diagram, depicting the holotype, was included in the article which first described Dendrogramma.

Religion in Society

There is a great disconnect between how athiests and religionist view the proper place for religion in the public square. Briefly, atheists (usually) want no religion in the public square, and religionists want equal access (non-denominational) to the public square and view athiesm as just one other "religion" that needs access.

Wikipedia's Reputation

I've been thinking about this key principle: "[What] reliable sources ... have in common is process and approval between document creation and publication." This is also the key to Wikipedia's reliability and reputation. The core principles of neutrality and verifiability along with the standards for articles (featured/good/etc) and the implicit approval of every person who reads an article and makes no changes to it.

Intellectual Property

We (Americans) often "borrow" other people's intellectual property because the transaction method (i.e. limited use permission) does not exist and can not be created without the transaction cost exceeding the value of the permission (which is close to $0.00 in most cases) so we keep using other's work, and they don't sue us.
