Submission + - Honor a great American and a great man, Fred Rogers, by making March 20th a nati (

gt_mattex writes: The petition description reads:

Fred McFeely Rogers was a Presbyterian minister and educator, widely known as Mr. Rogers on the children's television show "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood." He taught children for decades that each one of them is special and treated everyone with kindness and respect.

We the people would like to see a holiday dedicated to our kind neighbor, Mr. Rogers, on his date of birth, March 20th.


Submission + - New Species In The Inky Water Under Antarctica

gt_mattex writes:
In the dark ocean beneath the Antarctic ice, researchers have found scores of species they've never seen before, including strange jellyfish and other gelatinous organisms that thrive without light.

It is too early to say exactly how many new species were discovered in the Antarctic, many in the Weddell Sea, where ice crushed the ship of Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton in 1915.
