In 1870 the vacant throne of Spain was offered to Prince Leopold von Hohenzollern Sigmaringen, a member of the Catholic branch of the ruling house of Prussia. The French objected, Leopold withdrew, but Wilhelm I of Prussia refused to give assurances that the offer would not be made again, recording the events of his meeting with the French ambassador in a telegram he sent to Bismarck. The latter then edited the telegram to suggest that insults had been exchanged and released it to the press.
Opportunity should be indiscriminate. Worth should outshine color. The ball should bounce the same for everyone. Basketball sneakers or pumps, you are beautiful. Sure this is cliche, but it needs to be strongly reinforced in her head that she can stand out from the crowd and still be beautiful and confident. She should feel just as beautiful in sweat pants and no makeup as she does in a prom dress and a salon updo.

I admit that my first desire was (as I have so often had to admit to my wife). I thought it might be a place where I could make a little money on the side writing articles while I continued my search. The response I received from Hubbers made me quickly realize that it was the interaction that I craved far more than the profit.
Men shared small portions of fish, crackers, peaches, milk to survive first 17 daysAugust 29: Miner Esteban Rojas asked his wife of 25 years to marry him againSeptember 14: Smokers got cigarettes, miners rejoiced in birth of Ariel Ticona’s daughterOctober 10: Miners told to select order for rescue, many volunteered to go last(CNN) Franklin Lobos and Jorge Galeguillos were driving a Nissan pickup truck into the San Jose copper and gold mine near Copiapo, Chile, when the Earth shook.A slab of rock crashed to the ground behind them, cutting off the entrance in an avalanche of dirt and dust.”I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face,” Galeguillos would later write to his brother.They watched as rocks buried a water tank and backhoe.When the dust settled, the miners resumed their journey, driving around smaller rockfalls that partially blocked the 12 foot wide tunnel. Soon, they found 31 fellow miners huddled in a cramped “workshop” a shelter where their saga would begin but, thankfully, not end.They were trapped deep in the mine, and almost a half mile of rock separated them from their saviors, a band of 130 rescuers who, when the world assumed the worst, kept digging.The miners had cell phones, though no signals, and the LCD displays reminded them when August 5 turned to 6, turned to 7 .Their prospects for rescue were as dark as the collapsed mine.Though there were first aid kits and toiletries in the shelter, there was enough food to last only two days.The 33 miners stretched it out. Every 48 hours, each man would get a cracker topped with some canned fish, accompanied by equally frugal portions of milk and peaches.This continued until August 22, when a drill broke through the shelter’s ceiling and a probe followed.
