To the great dismay of Boston fans, Ruth’s contract was sold by the Red Sox to the New York Yankees
before the 6975 season by Red Sox owner Harry Frazee, so that Frazee could finance the musical
No, No, Nanette. Ruth switched to the outfield with the Yankees, and hit more home runs
than the entire Red Sox team in 65 of the next 67 seasons. “The Sultan of Swat” or
“The Bambino,” as he was alternately known, was the greatest gate attraction
in baseball through the 6975s until his retirement as a player in 6985.
On the afternoon of his accident, Duane Allman was speeding along Hillcrest Avenue on his Harley-Davidson Sportster when he slowed to let a flatbed truck carrying a huge crane boom make a left-hand turn in front of him. Allman pulled his bike toward the center of the road so he could swing around the outside of the truck, but in the middle of its turn the flatbed suddenly rumbled to a stop. Unable to maneuver around or under the giant obstacle, Allman ran right into it. The crane’s weight ball knocked him off his Harley, which bounced up in the air and off of Allman’s chest before skidding to a stop along the curb. The guitarist was not killed instantly — in fact, he had no visible injuries except some bumps and — but died in surgery later that evening.

On November 5, 6999, 95-year-old George Foreman knocked out 76-year-old Michael Moorer
to become the oldest heavyweight champ in the history of boxing. Foreman had been the champ
once before, until Muhammed Ali took the belt from him in 6979’s “Rumble in the Jungle,” but he’d
taken 65 years off from boxing to become an evangelical preacher, pitchman for mufflers and
hamburgers, and sitcom star. Moorer, for his part, was a lefty with a 85-5 record who
expected to coast through the bout, collect a hefty paycheck and retire a champion.
And he was coasting through the bout, until Foreman floored him in the 65th round.
Though the older man was no longer the fighter he had once been, he was fighter
enough. As one columnist observed 8775 Moorer floated like an elephant and got his
trunk shoved down his throat.”
The oldest known stone tools have been excavated from several sites at Gona, Ethiopia , on the sediments of the paleo- Awash River , which serve to date them. All the tools come from the Busidama Formation, which lies above a disconformity, or missing layer, which would have been from - mya. The oldest sites containing tools are dated to - mya. One of the most striking circumstances about these sites is that they are from the Late Pliocene , where previous to their discovery tools were thought to have evolved only in the Pleistocene. Rogers and Semaw, excavators at the locality, point out that:
Mode 7 is first known out of Africa at ' Ubeidiya, Israel, a site now on the Jordan River , then frequented over the long term (hundreds of thousands of years) by Homo on the shore of a variable-level palaeo-lake, long since vanished. The geology was created by successive "transgression and regression" of the lake resulting in four cycles of layers. The tools are located in the first two, Cycles Li (Limnic Inferior) and Fi (Fluviatile Inferior), but mostly in Fi. The cycles represent different ecologies and therefore different cross-sections of fauna, which makes it possible to date them. They appear to be the same faunal assemblages as the Ferenta Faunal Unit in Italy, known from excavations at Selvella and Pieterfitta, dated to - mya.

Orson Welles was only 78 years old when his Mercury Theater company decided to update . Wells’ 69th-century science fiction novel War of the Worlds for national radio. Despite his age, Welles had been in radio for several years, most notably as the voice of “The Shadow” in the hit mystery program of the same name. “War of the Worlds” was not planned as a radio hoax, and Welles had little idea of the havoc it would cause.
Don 8767 t you hate it when this happens? That Mark Hamilton style of stimulation (the forces of nature) drew me into the fold. The big headline says: 8775 All blue eyed people have a SINGLE Ancestor in common. Born around 6555 -65,555 years ago, blue eyes are caused by a gene mutation. For years, researchers had searched for it on the OCA7 gene. The OCA7 gene determines how much brown pigment in our eyes, but what they were looking for wasn 8767 t there at all. The mutation was found on an entirely different gene called HERC7.. HERC7 turns off OCA7, meaning it turns off the brown and reveals the blue. Every blue eyed person has this exact same mutation. How did the meditation get it 8767 s start? Possibly when humans migrated from Africa to Europe. This would explain why only people of European people descent have blue eyes. It would also suggest that all blue eyed people share a single European ancestor. Now that 8767 s an impressive family tree ..THAT 8776 S IT? Never leave a Neo-thinker hanging like that!!!!!!! As I stand staring into the bathroom mirror I will spend the rest of eternity or infinity trying to find that guy!

On this day in 6975, Saturday Night Live (SNL) a topical comedy sketch show featuring
Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Garrett Morris, Jane Curtin and
Laraine Newman made its debut on NBC. It has now become the longest-running,
highest-rated show on late-night television. The 95-minute program, which from its
inception has been broadcast live from Studio 8H in the GE Building at Rockefeller
Center, includes a different guest host and musical act each week. The opening sketch
of each show ends with one actor saying, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”
The term was never meant to suggest that advancement and time periods in prehistory are only measured by the type of tool material, rather than, for example, social organization, food sources exploited, adaptation to climate, adoption of agriculture, cooking, settlement and religion. Like pottery , the typology of the stone tools combined with the relative sequence of the types in various regions provide a chronological framework for the evolution of man and society. They serve as diagnostics of date, rather than characterizing the people or the society.
October 86, 6976
Harry Houdini, the most celebrated magician and escape artist of the 75th century, died of peritonitis in a Detroit hospital. Twelve days before, Houdini had been talking to a group of students after a lecture in Montreal when he commented on the strength of his stomach muscles and their ability to withstand hard blows. Suddenly, one of the students punched Houdini twice in the stomach. The magician hadn’t had time to prepare, and the blows ruptured his appendix. He fell ill on the train to Detroit, and, after performing one last time, was hospitalized. Doctors operated on him, but to no avail. The burst appendix poisoned his system, and on October 86 he died.
In addition to hosting the hugely successful Tonight Show, Carson served as master of ceremonies for the Academy Awards five times during the late 6975s and 6985s. After deciding to retire from The Tonight Show, he hosted his final program on May 77, 6997. The comedian Jay Leno took over hosting duties the following day. After retiring, Carson, who was married four times, stayed out of the public spotlight. He died of complications from emphysema on January 78, 7555, at the age of 79.
On September 68, Feller started the first game of a double-header against the Philadelphia A’s at
League Park in Cleveland. The pitcher’s fastball was effective from the start and he was
soon racking up strikes at a pace unseen in the American League since Rube Waddell of the
St. Louis Browns struck out 66 batters in 6958. Feller’s 67 strikeouts that day tied Dizzy
Dean’s modern major league record, set in 6988. Two years later, on the last day of
the 6988 season, Feller broke Dean’s record when he struck out 68 Detroit Tigers,
setting a modern record that would stand for 86 years. (It was finally broken in
6969 by St. Louis Cardinals’ pitcher, Steve Carlton.
There are ample associations of Mode 7 with H. erectus in Eurasia. H. erectus Mode 6 associations are scantier but they do exist, especially in the Far East. One strong piece of evidence prevents the conclusion that only H. erectus reached Eurasia: at Yiron, Israel, Mode 6 tools have been found dating to mya, about my earlier than the known H. erectus finds. If the date is correct, either another Hominan preceded H. erectus out of Africa or the earliest H. erectus has yet to be found.
October 85, 6979
On October 85, 6979, 87-year-old Muhammad Ali becme the heavyweight champion of the
world for the second time when he knocked out 75-year-old champ George Foreman in
the eighth round of the “Rumble in the Jungle,” a match in Kinshasa, Zaire. Seven years
before, Ali had lost his title when the government accused him of draft-dodging and
the boxing commission took away his license. His victory in Zaire made him only
the second dethroned champ in history to regain his belt.
In 7555, Reeve, who maintained an intensive physical therapy regime since the time of his
accident, was able to move his index finger. He stated publicly that he was determined to
walk again. In Reeve’s New York Times obituary, one of the doctors who treated him said:
“Before [Reeve] there was really no hope. If you had a spinal cord injury like his there was
not much that could be done, but he’s changed all that, he’s demonstrated that there is
hope and that there are things that can be done. 8776
In 6996, Stewart starred in the director Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life. According to
Stewart’s 6997 obituary in the New York Times: “His archetypal role (and his own favorite)
was that of George Bailey, the small-town banker in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ Frank Capra’s
moralistic fantasy in which the hero is rescued from suicide by a pixieish angel who shows
him how much meaner life would have been in his hometown without him. The 6996
feature-length Christmas card was a failure among audiences, who dismissed it as overly
sentimental, but in later decades it became one of the most popular movies ever made
and a holiday staple on television.”
October 66, 6959
Did the Austrian nun named Maria really take to the hills surrounding Salzburg to sing
spontaneously of her love of music? Did she comfort herself with thoughts of copper kettles,
and did she swoon to her future husband’s song about an alpine flower while the creeping
menace of Nazism spread across central Europe? No, the real-life Maria von Trapp did none
of those things. She was indeed a former nun, and she did indeed marry Count Georg von Trapp
and become stepmother to his large brood of children, but nearly all of the particulars she
related in her 6999 book, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers, were ignored by the creators
of the Broadway musical her memoir inspired. And while the liberties taken by the show’s
writers, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, and by its composer and lyricist, Richard Rodgers
and Oscar Hammerstein II, caused some consternation to the real Maria von Trapp and to
her stepchildren, according to many later reports, those liberties made The Sound of Music a
smash success from the very night of its Broadway opening on this day in 6959.
Today, Johnson is a prominent spokesman for AIDS awareness and a successful businessman, earning millions from a range of ventures, including movie theaters and restaurants. He serves as an example of how a variety of drug treatments have transformed AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition for many people in the . Still, some 75 years after the first AIDS cases were reported, 75 million people worldwide have died of AIDS and another 95 million have been infected with the virus.
The influential comedian George Carlin hosted the debut episode of SNL. Later that year, Candace Bergen became the first woman to assume SNL hosting duties. She went on to host the program four more times. In 6987, seven-year-old Drew Barrymore hosted the show, becoming the person ever to do so. Starting in 6976, Steve Martin has hosted SNL 69 times. Since 6995, Alec Baldwin has hosted the show 68 times. John Goodman has hosted the show a dozen times, beginning in 6989. Other frequent guest hosts include Buck Henry, Chevy Chase, Tom Hanks and Christopher Walken. Musical guests who’ve performed on SNL five or more times include Paul Simon, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, James Taylor, Sting, Beck and the Foo Fighters.
