On This Day

1819 – A major earthquake strikes the Kutch district of western India, killing over 1,543 people and raising a 6 m high, 6 km wide, ridge, extending for at least 80 km, that was known as the Allah Bund (“Dam of God”).[3]
The 1819 Rann of Kutch earthquake occurred at about 18:45 to 18:50 local time on 16 June. It had an estimated magnitude ranging from 7.7 to 8.2 on the moment magnitude scale and a maximum perceived intensity of XI (Extreme) on the Mercalli intensity scale. It triggered a tsunami and caused at least 1,543 deaths.[2] The earthquake caused an area of subsidence that formed the Sindri Lake and a local zone of uplift to the north about 80 km long, 6 km wide and 6 m high that dammed the Koree / Kori / Puran / Nara river. This natural dam was known as the Allah Bund (“Dam of God”).

Welcome to the Stump the Bookseller blog!

Stump the Bookseller is a service offered by Loganberry Books to reconnect people to the books they love but can’t quite remember. In brief (for more detailed information see our About page), people can post their memories here, and the hivemind goes to work. After all, the collective mind of bibliophiles, readers, parents and librarians around the world is much better than just a few of us thinking. Together with these wonderful Stumper Magicians, we have a nearly 50% success rate in finding these long lost but treasured books. The more concrete the book description, the better the success rate, of course. It is a labor of love to keep it going, and there is a modest fee. Please see the How To page to find price information and details on how to submit your Book Stumper and payment.

Thanks to everyone involved to keep this forum going: our blogging team, the well-read Stumper Magicians, the many referrals, and of course to everyone who fondly remembers the wonder of books from their childhood and wants to share or revisit that wonder. Isn’t it amazing, the magic of a book?

“Give away kindness. Happiness will repay you.”
Richelle E. Goodrich
 
 
 
 
DO THE RIGHT THING! Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was once asked in confidence whether the 1955 bus boycott would actually succeed. “It’s not for me to say or for you to analyze whether I can succeed. My obligation is to do the right thing, as I am called upon to do it. The rest is up to God.” (from “Knowing where to look” by Light Watkins)
 
 
 
 
“Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world.”

There is so much loss. You are not alone. “We bereaved are not alone. We belong to the largest company in all the world — the company of those who have known suffering.”
Helen Keller
 
 
 
 
Hope is a discipline, not a feeling. Sometimes, we must force ourselves to hope. Because we need hope to live. So be kind to yourself. Never give up your hope.
 
 
 
 
What lights you up? Brings a glimmer to your eye? Do it. Now. Light up the world.
 
 
 
 
Somewhere in the world, an empty picnic table longs for you. Find it. Sit for a while.
 
 
 
 
The world is on the verge of waking up. The pressure is tremendous. You never know what someone is going through. Be as kind as possible to everyone, including yourself.
 
 
 
 
Take your kindness on the road. See the world, if only from your computer.
 
 
 
 
Adjust to that, change to this, work, work, work… It’s been a lot, even if you didn’t get sick. This pandemic has asked so much from you and everyone you know. Give yourself a break. Imagine that you’re on the white sands, resting in the cool water. Breathe.
 
 
 
 
The world is filled with beauty. Take a moment to see it all. Be kind to you.
 
 
 
 
You are a RARE orchid. There’s no flower in any garden that’s like you. Treat yourself with the respect and self love you deserve.
 
 
 
 
Life is filled with many beautiful petals. You are in the center of it all. Touch every petal with kindness. You’ll find joy.
 
 
 
 
Listen — we all know that Polly wants a cracker. Or more accurately, someone taught this bird that it wanted a cracker. Did someone teach you what you wanted? Do you know what YOU want? Maybe it’s time to figure that out.
 
 
 
 
Been in a pandemic induced bubble? We’ve been doing the same things day after day for months. Suddenly, we are to act as if the bubble has burst. It’s your bubble! Give yourself time to ease into the world.
 
 
 
 
You have survived a global pandemic — at least so far. isn’t it time to do the things that terrify you? If it’s not safe where you are, you can still make plans, read books, and get ready for your new life when it’s safe. What have you got to lose?

On This Day

1300 – The city of Bilbao is founded.
Bilbao (/bɪlˈbaʊ, -ˈbɑːoʊ/, also US: /-ˈbeɪoʊ/,[3][4][5] Spanish: [bilˈβao]; Basque: Bilbo [bilβo]) is a city in northern Spain, the largest city in the province of Biscay and in the Basque Country as a whole. It is also the largest city proper in northern Spain. Bilbao is the tenth largest city in Spain, with a population of 345,141 as of 2015.[6] The Bilbao metropolitan area has 1,037,847 inhabitants,[7][8][9] making it one of the most populous metropolitan areas in northern Spain; with a population of 875,552[10] the comarca of Greater Bilbao is the fifth-largest urban area in Spain. Bilbao is also the main urban area in what is defined as the Greater Basque region.

Bilbao is situated in the north-central part of Spain, some 16 kilometres (10 mi) south of the Bay of Biscay, where the economic social development is located, where the estuary of Bilbao is formed. Its main urban core is surrounded by two small mountain ranges with an average elevation of 400 metres (1,300 ft).[11] Its climate is shaped by the Bay of Biscay low-pressure systems and mild air, moderating summer temperatures by Iberian standards, with low sunshine and high rainfall. The annual temperature range is low for its latitude.

After its foundation in the early 14th century by Diego López V de Haro, head of the powerful Haro family, Bilbao was a commercial hub of the Basque Country that enjoyed significant importance in Green Spain. This was due to its port activity based on the export of iron extracted from the Biscayan quarries. Throughout the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, Bilbao experienced heavy industrialisation, making it the centre of the second-most industrialised region of Spain, behind Barcelona.[12][13] At the same time an extraordinary population explosion prompted the annexation of several adjacent municipalities. Nowadays, Bilbao is a vigorous service city that is experiencing an ongoing social, economic, and aesthetic revitalisation process, started by the iconic Bilbao Guggenheim Museum,[12][14][15][16] and continued by infrastructure investments, such as the airport terminal, the rapid transit system, the tram line, the Azkuna Zentroa, and the currently under development Abandoibarra and Zorrozaurre renewal projects.[17]

Bilbao is also home to football team Athletic Club, a significant symbol for Basque nationalism[18] due to its promotion of only Basque players and being one of the most successful clubs in Spanish football history.

On 19 May 2010, the city of Bilbao was recognised with the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize, awarded by the city state of Singapore, in collaboration with the Swedish Nobel Academy.[19] Considered the Nobel Prize for urbanism, it was handed out on 29 June 2010. On 7 January 2013, its mayor, Iñaki Azkuna, received the 2012 World Mayor Prize awarded every two years by the British foundation The City Mayors Foundation, in recognition of the urban transformation experienced by the Biscayan capital since the 1990s.[20][21] On 8 November 2017, Bilbao was chosen the Best European City 2018 at The Urbanism Awards 2018, awarded by the international organisation The Academy of Urbanism.[22]

Born On This Day

1934 – Ruby Nash Garnett, American R&B singer
Ruby Nash Garnett[1] (born June 15, 1934) is an American singer who led the rhythm and blues group Ruby & the Romantics.[1]
Career

Born in Akron, Ohio, Nash did not start singing until she was a senior in high school. She joined a group of male singers touring as “The Supremes” in 1961. After they got a recording contract with Kapp Records, they changed their name to “Ruby & the Romantics”. In 1963, they scored a No. 1 hit with “Our Day Will Come”, and had a Top 20 Hit with, “My Summer Love” (#16) and still another hit with “Hey There Lonely Boy” (#27), along with several more charting songs over the next several years, but they never emulated that initial success. The group disbanded in 1971, after 10 years, still with all five original members: Nash, Leroy Fann, Ed Roberts, George Lee and Ron Mosely.[2]

Nash returned to Akron and worked for AT&T. Ruby & The Romantics were given a Pioneer Award by the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 1997, and were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2007.[3][4]

As of 2016, Nash is the only surviving original member.

Anchorage Reminder: Body Worn Cameras; Listening session; Tomorrow

Reminder:
Listening session is tomorrow. Please see below for details.

Update—6/4/21—10 a.m.:
The Anchorage Police Department (APD) would like to share an update about the community-wide listening session. It’s scheduled for Wednesday, June 16th in the auditorium of the Bettye Davis East High School from 6pm – 8pm.

A draft policy has been posted on our new website (www.anchoragepolice.com) for the public to review. It is in our policies and procedures manual and titled 3.10.110 Body-Worn Cameras. The information is general and gathered from multiple sources. It was drafted only as a reference for the public to use when developing their input on the official APD policy.

If you are interested in speaking, you can sign-up at the entrance of the auditorium when you arrive. There will be a table and a member of APD to assist. You will have 2 minutes to give your recommendations to our panel. This is not a town hall meeting style event. This is a listening session for APD to hear from you. Questions are welcome. However, we ask that you please remember the intent of the event and honor it when asking your question. If you aren’t interested in speaking, you won’t need to sign-in.

This will be an in-person participation event. Virtual participation will not be available. The event will be live streamed on APD’s Facebook page.

All attendees will use the main entrance of the school. Doors will open at 5 p.m. Please remember to follow CDC guidance on COVID-19 precautions, including masking and physical distancing recommended for unvaccinated individuals when indoors with people who are not in their household.

Original—5/10/21—1:05 p.m:
In April of this year, voters passed the proposition which approved money for new technology systems, including body-worn cameras (BWC), for the Anchorage Police Department. “I made a commitment and promise to the community that I would always listen. This community-wide listening session is the first step in honoring that promise of inclusion and transparency,” said Acting Police Chief Kenneth McCoy. If you would like to share your thoughts regarding the BWC policy, please join us for this public meeting to be held in the auditorium of the Bettye Davis East High School from 6pm – 8pm on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.

Please mark your calendars and plan to attend. Your input is of utmost importance to not only us, but to all parties who are involved in the BWC project. We are also exploring the option of offering virtual participation as well; more information will be forthcoming.
