"In this and like communities, public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed. Consequently, he who molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions." -- Abraham Lincoln

It was the first full test of a successful design created by Hungarian-American physicist Edward Teller and Polish mathematician Stanisław Ulam. Mike represented a remarkable feat of engineering, standing 20 feet tall and weighing an impressive 74 metric tons. Although it cannot be deployed as a conventional weapon, its significance lies in being the first nuclear device that derives a large portion of its explosive power from the process of nuclear fusion, rather than from fission, the splitting of atoms.

On Christmas Day in 1968, the Apollo 8 crew of Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders were delighted to find a surprise in their food locker: a specially packaged Christmas dinner, complete with red and green ribbons.


 

This "homemade" meal, as similar to a traditional holiday feast as NASA could muster for space travel, lifted the crew's spirits and whetted their appetites.


 

In addition to its culinary appeal, this meal also marked an important moment in the development of space food.


 

During their journey to the Moon, the Apollo 8 crew experienced a loss of appetite. Food scientist Malcolm Smith later detailed the crew's minimal food intake.


 

Flight surgeon Chuck Berry expressed concern that Frank Borman, in particular, consumed the least on the second day with only 881 calories.


 

Borman attributed this to the unfit nature of much of the food provided.


 

The crew avoided compressed, bite-sized items and faced another challenge: When rehydrating their food, the food often absorbed the flavor of its packaging rather than retaining its original flavor.

An adult film star who previously alleged an extramarital affair with Donald Trump now says in a statement the affair never happened.

A lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels confirmed his client’s statement Tuesday. Daniels’ real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Clifford has been on a publicity tour in recent weeks amid news of the alleged 2006 tryst with the president. She is scheduled to appear Tuesday on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Her publicist hasn’t answered questions about the statement.

Clifford has sought to tell her story before, in 2011 and again during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that Trump’s personal lawyer brokered a $130,000 payment to Clifford in October 2016 to keep her from publicly discussing it.

Former President Donald Trump received a significant financial boost as his criminal trial in New York began. The former president received a significant increase in donations that could be vital to his efforts against President Joe Biden later this year.

According to new Republican National Committee (RNC) co-chair Lara Trump her father-in-law received more than $1 million in donations following the first day of the trial.

“The people of America spoke up yesterday in support of Donald Trump to the tune of a million and a half dollars raised for his campaign,” she said. “The average donation was $28, so even here, in the abysmal Biden economy, people are coming out and they are financially supporting this president.”

The former president is facing charges related to reported payments to former adult film actress Stormy Daniels after a brief relationship. The case is expected to be decided within the next eight weeks and could be affected by hearings before the U.S. Supreme Court next week regarding whether or not presidents can be prosecuted for acts they commit in office.

Friday marked day four of Trump’s ‘hush money’ trial in New York City.

The day took a dramatic turn when a far-left protestor set himself on fire outside of the courthouse.

12 jurors were selected and five more alternate jurors were seated.

 

One prospective juror broke down in tears after revealing her connection to Trump’s former lawyer and convicted perjurer Michael Cohen and former NJ governor Chris Christie.

“I feel so nervous and anxious right now,” the juror said as she began to cry.

“I don’t want to waste the court’s time,” she said. “I thought I could do this. This is so much more stressful than I thought it was going to be.”

The judge excused the juror.
