Friday Open Thread: Scientists and Technicians of the Manhattan Project

Moddie Daniel Taylor, a chemist by training, was a member of the small, elite group of African American scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project, the code name for the top-secret effort to create an atomic bomb during World War II.  Taylor was born in Nymph, Alabama on March 3, 1912, the son of Herbert L. Taylor and Celeste (Oliver) Taylor.  The Taylors later moved to St. Louis where Herbert worked as a postal clerk.  Moddie Taylor attended Charles H. Sumner High, graduating in 1931.  He then attended Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri where he majored in chemistry.  Taylor graduated in 1935 as the valedictorian of his class.

He then attended Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri where he majored in chemistry.  Taylor graduated in 1935 as the valedictorian of his class. Moddie Taylor began his teaching career at Lincoln University the same year, working as an instructor until 1939 and then as an assistant professor from 1939 to 1941 while enrolled in the University of Chicago graduate program in chemistry.  He received an M.S. from the University in 1939 and a Ph.D. in 1943. Taylor married Vivian Ellis in 1937.  The couple had one son, Herbert Moddie Taylor. Moddie Taylor went to work on the Manhattan Project in 1945 at the University of Chicago.  His worked as an associate chemist for the project for the next two years, involved in analyzing rare earth metals, elements of which are the products of oxidized metals and have special properties and important industrial uses.

His contributions to the project earned him a Certificate of Merit from Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson in 1946. In 1946 Taylor returned to Lincoln University for two years before becoming a chemistry professor at Howard University and the chair of the department in 1969.  His research at Howard included the study of the vapor phase of dissociation of some carboxylic acids, which resulted in a grant in 1956 from the American Academy of Arts and Science.

In 1960, Taylor’s textbook, First Principles of Chemistry, was published.   It soon became one of the major texts in use in colleges and universities throughout the United States.   Also in 1960, he was selected by the Manufacturing Chemists Association as one of the nation’s six top college chemistry professors.  In 1972 Taylor was given the Honor Scroll from the Washington Institute of Chemists for his research and teaching. Taylor was a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, The New York Academy of Sciences, Sigma Xi, and Beta Kappa Chi.

He was also a fellow of the American Institute of Chemists and the Washington Academy for the Advancement of Science. Taylor retired as professor emeritus from Howard University on April 1, 1976, and died of cancer in Washington, DC on September 15, 1976.  He was 64.

      Because Hillary has a uterus.

      Bernie Sanders believes WHITE men are supreme. He didn’t jump his ass up to rev up the revolution when white men were solely running things. He only got a burr up his ass when the black man became president & the white woman decided to run too.

      • This. 2012 primary threat. Identity politics.

    hahahaha Lord — feeling are hurt. I thought he was done with his presidency?

    I love the comments— so obsessed with Obama. hahahahha

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4431306/Gayle-King-s-coworkers-angry-trip-Obamas.html
    ‘She’s an anchor of a news program that covers the White House. You’re held to a different standard. It’s one thing to be friendly. It’s another thing to go vacationing on a yacht’.
    King vacationed with the Obama’s on David Geffen’s yacht in Tahiti earlier in April, joined also by Tom Hanks, Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey – a close friend of King.
    ‘Charlie wasn’t pleased. I thought he and Gayle got along, but when things like this happen it makes the show look bad,’ the source told Page Six.
    However, a spokesperson at CBS said that these claims were completely fabricated.
    ‘There’s no truth of any of that. We love Gayle King. Sounds like sour grapes,’ the spokesperson said.

    • Town

      I didn’t realize the Obamas are still in service to the country. I thought they were private citizens hanging out with other private citizens?

      • Miranda

        haha….silly you.

      • That’s what they want us to think. I wouldn’t be surprised if Nixon was behind this.

    • rikyrah

      They can stay mad.

  • Miranda
    • Every President has sung this tune in public or private. Why does he think he should be any different?

  • aleth
    • Miranda

      So a general is just making decisions all by his damn self to drop a gigantic bomb?!?!?!?!? WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?

      • Town

        Or Trump told him he could do whatever he wanted to as long as he got rid of as many undesirables as possible?

  • Miranda

    THIS IS HOW YOU DEAL WITH THEM….LET THEM HANG THEMSELVES. Dems would be wise to follow Pelosi every step of the way. Republicans CAN’T govern…let that keep being exposed.

    “We have the leverage and they have the exposure,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told fellow Democrats on a Thursday conference call, according to a senior Democratic aide.

    White House demands disrupt shutdown negotiations
    The Trump administration’s hard line is straining bipartisan talks to fund the government.
    04/20/17 09:50 PM EDT

    Congressional leaders’ efforts to hatch a massive spending deal have been thrown off course by the Trump administration’s 11th-hour intervention, leaving the bipartisan bill teetering on the brink of collapse just a week before a government shutdown deadline.

    The hard line taken by White House officials, particularly Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, has strained an emerging deal between House and Senate leaders that would skirt hot-button issues that could shut down the government. In particular, administration officials’ hopes of giving President Donald Trump a win during his first 100 days, such as border wall funding or a crackdown on sanctuary cities, have complicated what had been a relatively smooth, bicameral, bipartisan negotiation, according to staffers in both parties.

    Obama’s back: Former president to hold Chicago event on Monday
    04/21/17 10:05 AM EDT

    Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement back on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago.

    The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.”

    It won’t be an explicitly political event.

    Obama represented the neighborhood the campus is in while in the Illinois state senate, and was a law professor there. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a push for his failed attempt to appoint Antonin Scalia’s replacement to the Supreme Court.

    “This event is part of President Obama’s post-presidency goal to encourage and support the next generation of leaders driven by strengthening communities around the country and the world,” the event program states.

    I’m damn tired of berniebots throwing up that pic of him being handcuffed during CRM. You know what that pic looks like to me? It looks like the march was over and then Bernie showed up that’s what it looks like. And knowing how shady and crazy his ass is I wouldn’t put it past him to do something like that.

    The debasing of America
    APRIL 21, 2017

    Four days ago, the president of the United States tweeted this: “Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!’’

    In nonbizarro America — or the 241 years before Donald Trump took the oath of office — such a presidential statement, raising questions about Americans exercising their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble, would be considered downright scandalous.

    But in Trump’s America, such political transgressions, which strike at the nation’s most basic political norms and traditions, are daily occurrences.

    No longer, it seems, are we scandalized by blatant examples of White House lying. Yesterday, it was revealed that when the president said last week that a naval armada was heading to North Korea to deter that country from conducting a nuclear test, it wasn’t true. Instead, the New York Times reported, the ships were actually heading in the opposite direction.

The spiel- the old way isn’t working, blah-blah. I told her that ” I am not interested in any “progressive dems” who follow BS. We had a progressive dem in PBO, that dem way was working but too many ran away from him, always looking for the newest shiny coin. So no, good luck with your efforts but you don’t have my support”. She didn’t mention Sanders, but we know what they mean.

His leukemia is still in remission but best report was his blood counts had gone down which was more than the Doc expected. Doctor thought things would just be holding, he was delighted about the results of this blood test.

    My best beloved is going to be with me for a long time! We are in this together. He has no plans to leave me yet. Have a great day, Peeps!

    Afternoon Fam,

    I hope everyone is engaging in self care.

    I’ve been so busy today, I forgot it’s. been. one. year. I have dreaded this anniversary, because like many of you, it remains incomprehensible. Can’t believe it. Don’t understand it.

    Yet, the part of me that does understand, the spirit in me that connects to other spirits in and out of this realm, knows that Prince is in a better place. No more pain. No more trying to figure out how to live with pain and alleviate pain. He’s free.

    Judge blocks Friday release of Prince EP ‘Deliverance’

    A federal judge in Minneapolis has put a stop to Friday’s release of six previously unpublished Prince songs.

    U.S. District Judge Wilhelmina Wright late Wednesday granted a temporary restraining order to stop sound engineer George Ian Boxill from releasing the EP Deliverance and ordered him to return the recordings to the singer’s estate.

    The decision came one day before the first anniversary of Prince’s April 21, 2016, death from an accidental overdose of fentanyl at age 57 at Paisley Park in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen.

    Prince’s estate and Paisley Park Enterprises (his primary business entity), allege that Boxill, who co-wrote and co-produced the six tracks with Prince in 2006, was trying to exploit the recordings for personal gain. (The songs include Deliverance, I Am, Touch Me, Sunrise Sunset, No One Else and an extended version of I Am.)

    A pre-order for the EP was made available on Tuesday on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon and the title track had already been available for sale. All were pulled down Wednesday evening. It’s not clear whether the temporary restraining order extends through June 2, when the CD was scheduled to go on sale at Walmart, Target and other retailers.

    Prince and Boxill co-wrote and co-produced all of the tracks, and after Prince’s death, Boxill completed the compositions and arrangements, finished the production and mixed the songs.

    “I hope when people hear Prince singing these songs it will bring comfort to many,” Boxill said in a press release published Tuesday by Rogue Music Alliance, through which he intended to release the music. He explained that the songs were written and recorded when Prince was an independent artist, “protesting what he saw as an unjust music industry.”

    The lawsuit claimed that Boxill had no right to the recordings due to a 2004 confidentiality agreement that stipulated that all of the recordings, valued at $75,000, would remain the sole and exclusive property of Prince.

    Both men grew up in unevenly economically disadvantaged communities in poverty that existed long before white people became Bernie “woke”. This fool does not even realize his anti-blackness is showing. He said the problem with Lebron & JayZ because is that they pretend everything is alright. FOH. Too funny y’all.

    #BREAKING: Trump says Paris shooting will “probably” help far-right candidate Marine Le Pen http://hill.cm/WAS1Xbf

    — –President Trump said Friday that a deadly terrorist attack in Paris on Thursday is likely to help French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen in the first round of the country’s upcoming election..

    Trump told The Associated Press in an interview that the attack, which left one police officer dead and two others seriously wounded, would “probably help” National Front candidate Le Pen, though he said he was not explicitly endorsing the candidate.

    Trump’s comments came a day after a gunman opened fire on police officers on Paris’ Champs Elysees, one of the most famous streets in the city. The attacker killed one police officer and wounded two others, before he was shot and killed by police. The attack has been claimed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

    Le Pen has gained momentum in the election with her promises to crack down on immigration and terrorism and to leave the European Union. Her policies have been compared to those of Trump, who similarly ran on a platform of economic nationalism and a promise to restore law and order.

    Pentagon experiences communications breakdown
    04/21/17

    The Pentagon is having a communications problem.

    On two separate occasions this month, the military has sent out information that was either misleading or unauthorized.

    In the first instance, the Defense Department failed to correct claims from the White House and runaway media reports that an aircraft carrier strike group was headed toward North Korea in a show of force after that country tested a new missile.

    In the second instance, U.S. Central Command walked back unusually blunt statements to The Hill about the use of a Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB) in Afghanistan.

I feel bad for the kids and I hope the mother get’s full custody, but Alex Jones deserves all the hate and trolling for all the lies and hateful things he spread about so many people.

    this is what trips me out. All you hear from these so-called Berniebots is how corrupt both parties are, and the real need for a revolution. They had every right to support Jill if Bernie was no on the ballot.

    So where was Jill Stein’s handpicked candidate in GA-06, runoff?

    Have any Green Party/Jill Stein candidates ran in any of these special elections?
