People We Pass: Stories of Life among the Masses of New York City

Edward Penfield (American, Brooklyn, New York 1866–1925 Beacon, New York)

In one terrible campaign 20,000 Serbians were killed. Masses of dead were so high that it was impossible to bury them and they were taken to sea in boat loads with a little piece of iron to sink them on each corpse. The conditions of those left alive were inconceivably difficult and the American Red Cross has been able in a slight measure to alleviate the agony. Masses of dead

Field morgue personnel, from the Services Squadron, process the body of a simulated dead British soldier and place it in a sealed aluminum container for shipment. The Services Squadron is not only responsible for feeding the masses, but also for bagging and tagging dead personnel.

From this course, the team will learn to survive and operate in a field environment

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -  The first stage of the Delta II rocket is in the process of being raised to a vertical position on NASA's Space Launch Complex 2 (SLC-2) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif.  The rocket will carry the ICESat and CHIPSat satellites into Earth orbits. ICESat is a 661-pound satellite known as Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) that will revolutionize our understanding of ice and its role in global climate change and how we protect and understand our home planet.  It will help scientists determine if the global sea level is rising or falling.  It will look at the ice sheets that blanket the Earth's poles to see if they are growing or shrinking.  It will assist in developing an understanding of how changes in the Earth's atmosphere and climate effect polar ice masses and global sea level. CHIPSat, a suitcase-size 131-pound satellite, will provide invaluable information into the origin, physical processes and properties of the hot gas contained in the interstellar medium.  This can provide important clues about the formation and evolution of galaxies since the interstellar medium literally contains the seeds of future stars.  The Delta II launch is scheduled for Jan. 11 between 4:45 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. PST. KSC-02pd2031
