La Salle: Explorer of the North American Frontier

Anka Muhlstein

La Salle: Explorer of the North American Frontier by Anka MuhlsteinRobert Chevalier de la Salle, the French historian Anka Muhlstein writes, stands indisputably among Europe's most accomplished explorers. In the 1670s and '80s he crossed over most of what is now French Canada and the middle United States and charted the length of the Mississippi River--almost always traveling on foot, almost always under dangerous circumstances. Thanks to his pioneering travels, in the next century "America seemed destined to be French, until the Seven Years' War in Europe resulted in a reordering of the New World." La Salle would not live to see this turnabout. Murdered by...

The Ringer by AnonymousIn April of 2012 Astronomers Paul Davies and Robert Wagner who are affiliated with Arizona State University, filmed five large UFOs flying over the surface of the moon. Even though Paul Davies is a theoretical physicist and a cosmologist who is now involved in astrobiology, and Robert Wagner is affiliated with ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration, U.S. mainstream media did not consider this scientific research to be newsworthy. While scientific discoveries of this magnitude should be front page news, they are purposely buried, preventing any educative knowledge regarding extraterrestrials....
