leave a comment »

Today, June 20, 2011, The Supreme Court ruled for Wal-Mart Stores Inc in the largest sex-discrimination lawsuit ever, overturning a decision that gave class-action status for female employees seeking billions of dollars.

The justices overturned a U.S. appeals court ruling that more than a million female employees nationwide could join together in the lawsuit accusing Wal-Mart of paying women less and giving them fewer promotions.

Justice Antonin Scalia who was born on March 11, 1936  said for the court majority that the certification of the class was not consistent with a federal rule, and the back pay claims were also improperly certified.

On March 11 of this year, Antonin Scalia turned 75 and Uranus entered Aries.

The History of Numerology

leave a comment »

Numerology is the study of  numerical representations of inter-relationships between the  universe, earth,  society, an man.  This can take a variety of forms even today:

  • Science obviously believes numbers are important. The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, pi, shows up in an astounding variety of scientific formulae and situations. Other important numbers include the speed of light c, the gravitational constant g, and so forth.
  • Religion and superstition often assign importance to numbers. People play their “lucky numbers” in lotteries, or avoid unlucky numbers (like 13.) Three, seven, and ten are often viewed as “good luck” numbers in Western culture, while six, eight, and nine are viewed as lucky in China. Certain numbers appear more frequently than others in the Bible: Both New and Old Testament. Some find apolcalyptical theories based on numeric coincidences or perceived serendipities.
