"Az idősebb és fiatalabb testvér, vagyis a zsidóság és a kereszténység kapcsolatát is kifejezi az az alkotás, amit a Szeged-Csanádi Egyházmegye állított a dóm mellett a holokauszt 3300 szegedi áldozatára emlékezve."

Ez … ez … ez …. besza-behu …. ez ….

még jó, hogy a szobrásznak volt egy Völkischer Beobachter karikatúrája mintának!

ilyen király szobrot én még életemben nem láttam

„A szegedi bárkában van a két testvér, a kereszténység és a zsidóság. Az idősebb testvért a hatalom, a zsarnokság, az aljasság a vesztébe löki, a fiatalabb testvér – a második szövetség – kicsit tehetetlenül fohászkodva könyörög, nem tud többet tenni” – fogalmazott Kiss-Rigó.

sci-universe:

This colorized image is my tribute to astrophysicist Cecilia Payne (1900–1979), a woman who fought her way into science which was then strictly a world only for men. Cecilia discovered the chemical composition of stars and, in particular, that hydrogen and helium are the most abundant elements in stars and, therefore, in the universe. However, she is basically not credited at all with the discovery because of her male superiors.
Cecilia completed her studies at Cambridge in 1923, earning a B.A. degree in 1923. Since at that time a woman could only earn “the Title of a Degree,” she travelled to the US in 1923 to seek greater opportunities.
By the time she was awarded her PhD she had also already published six papers on stellar atmospheres, all by age 25.

Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery.
Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

— Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery.
