(Great pun!  I didn’t see it at first.  Initially, I thought the middle word was going to be FOR, but then SELLS FOR MAIDS didn’t make any sense.  Nor SLID FOR MALES.  Nor LIED FOR SLAMS.  Okay, I really didn’t guess any of these.  But I did consider FOR for the middle word . . . for a few seconds.  We have a new clue word today in “dimly”.  Our good friends, ralis95 can add it to his world famous database.  And, all of the jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was as satisfying as a turkey dinner, with all the fixings!  The cartoon was a great contemporary family gathering  scene.  I liked the televised football game in the background, and the dog poking his head out from under the table.  I hope everyone is having/ has had a Happy Thanksgiving!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

100 Years of the Einstein Theory
That Jump-Started the Modern World

Most of the technological wonder mankind grew accustomed during the 20th century, and is still the basis of contemporary life, was not yet in place when a 36-year-old Albert Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity, after a decade of feverish research.
Despite its far reaching concepts and complexities of its precepts, the theory became both popular and enduring, dismantling old assumptions and challenging scientific thought. Its astonishing accuracy has also proven resilient and still ahead of our time.
In fact, along Max Planck’s Quantum Mechanics formulations, Relativity is arguably one of the most comprehensive – despite its gaps – explanations of natural phenomena since Isaac Newton published his Law of Universal Gravitation, over 220 years before.
It guaranteed Einstein immortality and, even if indirectly, the 1921 Nobel of Physics. While only a few could elaborate on…

(Great pun.  And, a great coincidence, that I will tell you about a little later.  There were no new clue words, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  Can’t say I struggled with any of them though.  The answer letter layout was a decent jumble too.  Switching the order of the clue words might have made it a little tougher.  The cartoon is great.  Portable TVs were a great alternative to the console models.  Cheaper too.  The rabbit ear antennas, with aluminum foil extenders was a nice touch.  And, it was completely acceptable for Dad to be smoking in front of the kids in those days.  Not anymore.  Not indoors at least.  The space race was so important in the 60s.  Whenever they would wheel in a TV to a classroom it was a good bet it was to watch the launching, or splashdown, of a space mission.  Either Mercury, Gemini, or Apollo; we couldn’t get enough of it back then!  Now, for the coincidence.  The wife and I wanted to go see Trumbo yesterday, but it wasn’t playing where I wanted to go.  And, it wasn’t playing until the evening.  So, we went to see The Martian, with Matt Damon!  I was surprised that it was still playing, because it’s been out over a month.  If you get the chance to see it . . . do.  Great story, great cast, and great effects.  It is a fantastic movie!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This makes for a great Thanksgiving quote.  It’s very often in festive family/friends gatherings when we realize how rich we really are.  Sometimes it just when it’s you and the dog . . . or the cat.  Or, you and a good book.  There are so many things to be thankful for.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Well, they are teens, and they are rooting!  I’m guessing this might have been a difficult solve for some of you.  I’m a jumble rat, so it didn’t take me very long.  But, the answer was no gimme, by any standard.  There were no new clue words, but three of the jumbles were new.  They have used “menvo” before.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble, that gave nothing away.  And, the cartoon was cute, and relevant, but didn’t make the answer too obvious.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  It’s funny how one of the the items in Today in History ties in to today’s Google art/theme.  156 years ago, Charles Darwin published “On the Origin of Species” (TiH), and it’s the 41st anniversary of the discovery of Lucy (Google).  I thought it was interesting.   —   YUR

Sitting Bull

Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.”   —   Sitting Bull

(And, for how many years were our history books, and popular culture, referring to him as a “savage”???  Oh, how our leaders love to demonize those who look and live differently than “us”.  Governments – and their mouthpiece, the corporate media – need to provide us with a bad guy . . . a boogieman . . . to rally support for their . . . purposes.  We just need to be smart enough to see this in the present, and not have to wait until the “official” narrative is rectified.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
