Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.
“I left because of corruption in the palace, and infrastructure sabotage,” Richard Morse said of his reasons for leaving the Martelly administration. “If you are creating disasters, it can only be for aid money,” said Morse who says he saw evidence of workers filling drainage canals before the rainy season, which resulted in flooding.
It was in an interview with The Star columnist Catherine Porter, that the cousin and adviser for President Michel Martelly, even since the campaign, said that corruption is rampant at the National Palace. Morse says “fake cheques – people getting paid who no longer worked there,” were issued and when he would alert officials of these issues it seemed as if “rather than fight the corruption,” he said, “I feel like they have embraced it.”
