Joseph Henry (December 17, 1797 – May 13, 1878) was an American scientist who served as the first Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, as well as a founding member of the National Institute for the Promotion of Science, a precursor of the Smithsonian Institution. He was highly regarded during his lifetime. While building electromagnets, Henry discovered the electromagnetic phenomenon of self-inductance. He also discovered mutual inductance independently of Michael Faraday, though Faraday was the first to publish his results. Henry developed the electromagnet into a practical device. He invented a precursor to the electric doorbell (specifically a bell that could be rung at a distance via an electric wire, 1831) and electric relay (1835).

Freemason John Phillips Sousa wrote the Transit of Venus March for the unveiling of the Joseph Henry statue in front of the Smithsonian Castle. One year after the 1882 Transit of Venus, Sousa was commissioned to compose a processional for the unveiling of a bronze statue of American physicist Joseph Henry, who had died in 1878. It was performed on April 19, 1883, at 4:00 P.M.
I blogged about "Sousa's Transit of Venus" earlier on this Twilight Language site. I also pondered how "Venus Transits Sol & Introduces Prometheus."
The most recent Transit of Venus was on June 5-6, 2012, and was almost immediately followed by the June 8th opening in the USA of Ridley Scott's Prometheus.
Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and gave it to the mortals. What is being given to us here?
A suspect has been arrested, but she may not reveal any keys to the mystery symbols too soon.
Tian Jiamel was arrested on Monday, July 29, 2013, after the latest incident of splattered green paint was found (see below) at Washington’s National Cathedral. Cathedral spokesman Richard Weinberg said the paint was discovered there about 2:00 pm ET and was still wet.
Tian is one of the oldest Chinese terms for the cosmos and a key concept in Chinese mythology, philosophy, and religion. During the Shang Dynasty (17–11th centuries BCE), the Chinese called their supreme god Shangdi (上帝, "Lord on High") or Di("Lord"); during the Zhou Dynasty, Tian became synonymous with this figure. Heaven worship was, before the 20th century, an orthodox state religion of China.
In Taoism and Confucianism, Tian is often translated as "Heaven" and is mentioned in relationship to its complementary aspect of Dì (地), which is most often translated as "Earth". These two aspects of Taoist cosmology are representative of the dualistic nature of Taoism. They are thought to maintain the two poles of the Three Realms (三界) of reality, with the middle realm occupied by Humanity (人, Ren). Source.
Italian prehistoric petroglyphs from Val Camonica, Italy, allegedly linked to the Ancient Astronauts visitation theory. It is a probable inspiration for the cave paintings shown in Prometheus.
U.S. Park Police investigators were questioning the suspect Monday night, The Washington Post said. Two police officials told the newspaper that federal police had been seeking an Asian female who was possibly homeless, but were having difficulty communicating with her, reportedly, because of a language barrier.
