Word of the Day
- A volcanic mudflow.
The word 'lahar' comes from Javanese.
Quote of the DayWe live between two worlds; we soar in the atmosphere; we creep upon the soil; we have the aspirations of creators and the propensities of quadrupeds. There can be but one explanation of this fact. We are passing from the animal into a higher form, and the drama of this planet is in its second act.
- W. Winwood Reade (1838 - 1875), English traveler, author.
