opinion Jocelynn Brown The Detroit News Published 6:00 PM EST Dec 6, 2018 Elaine Jaeger, who's lived in Ferndale for nearly the past two years, is doing what she loves -- designing, making and selling jewelry. "I kind of had an epiphany, where if you do what you love, the money will come," she said. "It's definitely a luxurious way to think about life." Jaeger, who was born in Columbia, MO., but grew up in Denver, CO., earned a fine arts degree in metal smithing and hot glass work at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. in 2009. She later spent 3 1/2 years working in Charlottesville for a goldsmith. She moved here from Virginia last year after her husband, Brad, got a job at Ford Motor Co. She then took part in Wayne State University's Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, "a program for small businesses that links learning to action," reads its website. Described by organizers as "an accelerated MBA program," Jaeger said … [Read more...] about Jewelry designer sets up shop in Ferndale

There is an overwhelming cloud of sadness permeating the lives of the masses as our repulsive culture, built on fulfilling desires, consumerism, selfishness and greed, ultimately results in delusional, disappointed and desperate human beings. Quinn explains the collapse of cognizant civilization as arising out of “social indoctrination” and the organized … [Read more...] about Warning for humanity: The madness is spreading by design as the masses are deliberately poisoned with toxic pharmaceuticals, pesticides, 5G wireless, hormone disruptors and toxic vaccines
opinion The Detroit News Published 4:36 PM EDT Oct 25, 2018 Christina Spivak turns pieces of vintage lace into "modern romantic" body adornments that sometimes lend themselves to bohemian styling. The Clinton Township resident started making lace jewelry in 2008, when she and her sister (Courtney Spivak of Ferndale) opened an Etsy (online) shop called White Owl. "We were doing it together under one shop, but I think because the lace jewelry is so unique, that kind of got to be the bigger part of the business." The company is now known as White Owl Jewelry. Spivak shops for vintage lace at resale shops and estate sales, and sometimes it's given to her by those who know about her business. "My friends and family will find lace and send it to me," she said. "I do have some sources, like textile factories, where they just have vintage dead stock. It's a lot of searching involved." Her idea for creating jewelry using vintage lace … [Read more...] about Handmade: Jewelry artist designs with delicate fabrics
The extraordinary flying ability of dandelion seeds is possible thanks to a form of flight that has not been seen before in nature, research has revealed. The discovery, which confirms the common plant among the natural world's best fliers, shows that movement of air around and within its parachute-shaped bundle of bristles enables seeds to travel great distances -- often a kilometre or more, kept afloat entirely by wind power. Researchers from the University of Edinburgh carried out experiments to better understand why dandelion seeds fly so well, despite their parachute structure being largely made up of empty space. Their study revealed that a ring-shaped air bubble forms as air moves through the bristles, enhancing the drag that slows each seed's descent to the ground. This newly found form of air bubble -- which the scientists have named the separated vortex ring -- is physically detached from the bristles and is stabilised by air flowing through it. The amount of air flowing … [Read more...] about Dandelion seeds reveal newly discovered form of natural flight

Then in late 1977, this English couple put their hopes in the hands of two men of science. Thus began their leap into the unknown, and into history. On July 25, 1978, the Browns got what they had long wished for with the arrival of a daughter, Louise, a baby like no other the world had seen. She came into being through a process of in vitro fertilization developed by Robert G. Edwards and Patrick Steptoe. Her father’s sperm was mixed with her mother’s egg in a petri dish, and the resulting embryo was then implanted into the womb for normal development. Louise was widely, glibly and incorrectly called a “test-tube baby.” The … [Read more...] about Scientists Can Design ‘Better’ Babies. Should They?
