Mathematical Mind Reading

Very cool “mind reading” trick by Richard Wiseman, that is really nothing but simple mathematics.  This is one of many topics that Math Awareness Month has on their website to celebrate Mathematics Awareness Month 2014: Mathematics, Magic, and Mystery.  How awesome of a theme is that?

SLAVE REBELLIONS

Denmark Vesey’s Revolt: The Slave Plot That Lit a fuse to Fort Sumter

John Lofton

In 1822, Denmark Vesey was found guilty of plotting an insurrection what would have been the biggest slave uprising in U.S. history. A free man of color, he was hanged along with 34 other African Americans in Charleston, South Carolina, in what historians agree was probably the largest civil execution in U.S. history. At the time of Vesey’s conviction, Charleston was America’s chief slave port and one of its most racially tense cities. Whites were outnumbered by slaves three to one, and they were haunted by memories of the 1791 slave rebellion in Haiti.

Gabriel’s Conspiracy: A Documentary History

Philip J. Schwarz

The plans for a large slave rebellion in the Richmond area in 1800, orchestrated by a literate enslaved blacksmith named Gabriel, leaked out before they could be executed, and he and twenty-five other enslaved people were hanged. In reaction to the plot, the Virginia and other legislatures passed restrictions on free blacks, as well as on the education, movement, and hiring out of the enslaved.

The Fires of Jubilee: Nat Turner’s Fierce Rebellion

Stephen B. Oates

The bloody slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in Virginia in 1831, and the savage reprisals that followed, shattered beyond repair the myth of the contented slave and the benign master and intensified the forces of change that would plunge America into the bloodbath of the Civil War.

Toussaint Lóuverture: The Fight for Haiti’s Freedom

Walter Dean Meyers

The liberation of Haiti under Toussaint L’Ouverture, a freed slave who became general of the slave army, which rose against the French in 1791, is told in exciting, factual narrative and enhanced by bold, full-color paintings.
