Waitress' ‘faith’ restored after a group of young boys helps clean her table

  Waitress' ‘faith’ restored after a group of young boys helps clean her table A server in Michigan was blown away by a group of boys' simple act of kindness.On Friday, waitress Nicole Marie (who requested that her last name not be used), shared a story on Facebook — along with a very telling photo — about the happy incident that occurred during her shift at the Red Dog Saloon in Milford, Michigan.

The short answer is : yes, elements have been removed from the periodic table . As far as I know, in none of these cases with synthetic elements has anyone actually produced a quantity of the element that one could see and weigh that later turned out not to be an element , in contrast to the case with

The claim was controversial and other workers could not replicate it, but some literature from the period does list it among the elements . Note: If you’re familiar with the periodic table , you’ll know that neptunium is the name of an element , but it’s element 93, not element 32.

Yes, didymium, or Di. It was discovered by Carl Mosander in 1841, and he named it didymium from the Greek word didymos, meaning twin, because it was almost identical to lanthanum in its properties. In 1879, a French chemist showed that Mosander’s didymium contained samarium as well as an unknown element. In 1885, Carl von Weisbach showed that the unknown element was actually two elements, which he isolated and named praseodidymium and neodidymium (although the di syllable was soon dropped). Ironically, the twin turned out to be twins.

Four Seasons Hotel closure brings 43-year tradition of billionaire power lunches to an end

  Four Seasons Hotel closure brings 43-year tradition of billionaire power lunches to an end From billionaires to politicians, Vancouver's biggest movers and shakers have had regular tables at the Four Seasons Hotel. The high-end establishment closes Monday."Weddings, anniversaries, I had my ninetieth birthday here," says the billionaire philanthropist.

It was discovered by Carl Mosander in 1841, and he named it “didymium” from the Greek word didymos, twin, because it was After re-analysis of the original data using different software codes, the team was forced to admit that their evidence for element 118 was spurious, prompting all but one of

The term didymium filter is still used to refer to welding glasses colored with a mixture of neodymium and praseodymium oxides.

One might cite as other examples various claims to have created/discovered synthetic elements. Probably the best example of this would be masurium (element 43), which a team of German chemists claimed to have discovered in columbium (now known as niobium) ore in 1925. The claim was controversial and other workers could not replicate it, but some literature from the period does list it among the elements.

In 1936, Emilio Segrè and Carlo Perrier isolated element 43 from molybdenum foil that had been used in a cyclotron; they named it technetium. Even the longest-lived isotopes of technetium have a short half-life by geological standards (millions of years) and it has only ever been found naturally in minute traces as a product of spontaneous uranium fission. For this reason, the original claim of discovery (as masurium) is almost universally regarded as erroneous.

As far as I know, in none of these cases with synthetic elements has anyone actually produced a quantity of the element that one could see and weigh that later turned out not to be an element, in contrast to the case with didymium. (In the case of masurium, for instance, the only evidence of its existence was a faint x-ray signal at a specific wavelength.)

Unifor says it will remove Regina Co-op blockades if refinery owner agrees to go back to bargaining .
The union representing locked out workers at the Co-op Refinery Complex in Regina says it is willing to meet to bargain Thursday morning and get a deal done to send its members back to work by Monday.Unifor president Jerry Dias said on Wednesday that the union would also remove blockades and fences obstructing entrances and exits to the refinery, in compliance with a court injunction — but only if Federated Co-operatives Ltd., which owns the refinery, agrees to bargain.
