The most popular man in Russia right now is Vladimir Putin. Fresh from the international success of the Sochi Winter Olympics, he has managed to engineer a referendum in Crimea that has brought this peninsular, which in the past has been ravaged by war, back into the Russian family. 96% of the residents of Crimea

In 1846 a new gas was all the rage amongst doctors and dentists in Europe and America. Oddly enough this gas had been synthesized as long ago as 1275 and later by Paracelsus in the 16th century, but it was in the late 1840’s that its anesthetic properties were discovered and used in medical procedures.

Loves me, loves me not

by Adrian Duncan on June 20, 2013 in Articles with No comments

It is not always easy to work out whether a new love will develop, or an old love will end using techniques like transits and progressions.
