French Mle. 1831 Infantry Sword, dated 1832

For @qsy-complains-a-lot

This early example of the ever so influential French infantry and artillery gladius is dated 1832 at the ricasso. Manufacturer’s and inspector’s stamps are present on both sides of the blade, including the (B) mark of J.A.Bisch, the inspector at Klingenthal.

The British Army copied the hilt of this sword for the Pattern 1856 Land Transport Corps Sword for other ranks.

Writer John Edgar Wideman was thinking of writing a novel based on the Emmett Till case, when he came across the story of Louis Till, Emmett’s father:

Louis Till was serving overseas in the Transportation Corps of the U.S. Army during World War II. The army was still segregated at the time, and he and another African-American private, Fred McMurray, were found guilty by an army court-martial of raping two Italian women and murdering one during an air raid in 1944. Both men were hanged, but Wideman isn’t convinced of their guilt.

“Louis Till nor Fred McMurray ever had a chance,” Wideman tells NPR’s Scott Simon. “It was decided long before anybody even knew their names that some black soldiers are going to take the fall for these crimes.”

Wideman’s book about the case is called Writing to Save a Life: The Louis Till File.

Actine et myosine  de type I : transport vésiculaire

Les microfilaments d'actine peuvent avoir divers rôles, comme celui de rail guidant le transport vésiculaire : on parle de mobilité intra-cellulaire. Certaines vésicules sont tapissées de myosines de type I, dont la tête aiment bien se fixer sur l'actine F. L'ancrage fait, la tête bascule ce qui fait rouler la vésicule en avant, et met en contact la myosine suivante avec l'actine. La première myosine peut alors se détacher, et la deuxième continuer le processus.

This picture was taken on a foggy morning when vendors were taking bananas down to the nearest market that is about 10 kilometers away. Many of the plentiful fruits available in my village are taken down to markets to sell, so the roads are always full of cyclists with bulging loads of bananas and pineapples zipping up and down the rocky road!“
