Civil Rights Justice on the Cheap - The New York Times
I'm seeking reading recommendations and/or personal reflections (if you care to share) on MLK's notion of redemptive, unmerited suffering—perhaps most poignantly stated in his eulogy for the 4 girls murdered in KKK bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham: "[T]hey did not die in vain. God still has a way of wringing good out of evil. And history has proven over and over again that unmerited suffering is redemptive. The innocent blood of these little girls may well serve as a redemptive force that will bring new light to this dark city. The holy Scripture says, 'A little child shall lead them.' The death of these little children may lead our whole Southland from the low road of man's inhumanity to man to the high road of peace and brotherhood." I'm interested in how this outlook has been meaningful and productive for black liberation and I'm also interested in critiques, such as the one implied in comments of Sarah Collins Rudolph, sister of Addie Mae Collins, who died in the bomb blast. When Congress awarded the four little girls the Congressional Gold Medal, in 2013, Collins Rudolph said: “I’m letting the world know, my sister didn’t die for freedom.... My sister died because they put a bomb in that church and they murdered her.” Collins Rudolph said she preferred monetary reparations to state memorialization for her sister.

Bright nights: scientists explain rare phenomenon of 'nocturnal sun' | Science | The Guardian
Now researchers from York University in Canada have come up with a possible explanation for the rare phenomenon known as “bright nights”. Using satellite data, two atmospheric scientists from the Toronto institution suggest that the bright nights are not due to the sun or meteors, but instead the result of converging “zonal waves” in Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Accounts of the phenomenon are sprinkled throughout history. In the first century BC, Pliny the Elder wrote of an event that gives “an appearance of day during the night”. Subsequent accounts were published in 1783 and 1908.

Today, in the age of artificial light, few have experienced the event. “I have never seen one myself,” said Gordon Shepherd, the lead author of the study published this month in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

In 1991, Shepherd built a satellite instrument capable of measuring airglow, which results when ultraviolet radiation from the sun separates molecular oxygen into individual atoms. The atoms recombine at night, once the sun disappears, releasing energy that emits a green tint.

His latest study came about after researchers noticed that, at times, airglow could be seen by the naked eye. Along with York University’s Young-Min Cho, Shepherd carried out an analysis of two years’ worth of satellite data, finding that wavelengths in the upper atmosphere were at times superimposed over each other, brightening the airglow by as much as tenfold.
