Henry Hudson sets sail

April 6, 1609

"Henry Hudson sailed from Holland in the “Half Moon” on April 6, 1609. When head winds and storms forced him to abandon his northeast voyage, he ignored his agreement and proposed to the crew that they should instead seek the Northwest Passage. Given their choice between returning home or continuing, the crew elected to follow up Smith’s suggestion and seek the Northwest Passage around 40° N. While cruising along the Atlantic seaboard, Hudson put into the majestic river that was discovered by the Florentine navigator Giovanni da Verrazano in 1524 but that was thenceforth to be known as the Hudson. After ascending it for about 150 miles (240 kilometres) to the vicinity of what is now Albany, N.Y., Hudson concluded that the river did not lead to the Pacific."

  1. Interesting--I grew up on the Hudson River. Old Henry came to a bad end adrift in the northern ice like the monster in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

  6. LeBron James opting out of the final Cheap Nike Free Run two years of the deal he signed in 2010 with the Miami Heat to explore his free agent options is the decision many of us expected. From all indications, it’s the only reasonable decision he could have made, given the circumstances.
    Never mind the craziness his choice will usher in Cheap Nike Air Max over the course of the next few weeks.
    LeBron James' agent Rich Paul has told Heat LeBron will exercise early termination option—
    Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 24, 2014
    We’re still waiting on the decisions of Nike Air Max 1 the other two members of the Heat’s Big 3, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, who are expected to follow the lead of James and opt out of their deals before the June 30 deadline and Air Max 2014 become free agents July 1.
    That would place them in a superstar class that also includes Carmelo Anthony, who informed the New York Knicks that he was opting out of the final year of his deal Monday. The fun (and madness) begins with the Nike Blazers For Sale speculation about what these guys will do in the next phase of their respective careers.

  24. I just borrow a couple looms and want to give weaving a try. I'm excited to make a neat scarf, but I love the organic and natural feel that comes from a handmade loom. I have a few different tutorials for making different looms saved on Pinterest, I might need to experiment with different types!

  25. Easter and the events that are related to it are moveable meals which don't fall on a settled date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which take after simply the cycle of the sun; rather, its date is settled on a lunisolar timetable like the Hebrew date-book. The First Council of Nicaea developed two benchmarks, opportunity of the Jewish date-book and general consistency, which were the primary rules for Easter explicitly set around the board. No inconspicuous components for the estimation were demonstrated; these were worked out before long, a technique that took many years and made different conflicts. It has come to be the main Sunday after the religious full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March, however figurings move in East and West.
