Peace Treaty Ends 335 Years' War (1986)

When hostilities between the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago located off the southwest coast of England, ended, the warring parties recalled their troops, and the conflict was forgotten. Without a treaty declaring its end, however, the 1651 war peacefully became the world's longest, technically lasting 335 years. Despite questions regarding the validity of the declaration of war, peace was officially declared in 1986. What 45-minute war is considered the world's shortest? Discuss

Nikita Khrushchev (1894)

In the power struggle that followed Joseph Stalin's death, Nikita Khrushchev emerged as leader of the USSR. He became First Secretary of the Communist Party in 1953 and the Soviet premier five years later. He was highly critical of Stalin's rule and oversaw many reforms. Jovial in manner and often deliberately uncouth, he had a brash, extraverted style of diplomacy that became his trademark. Before his removal from office, the Communist Party accused him of mishandling what event in 1962? Discuss

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is just one of hundreds of species of aloe plant native to the drier parts of Africa, but it is perhaps the best known thanks to its purported medicinal properties. The mucilaginous gel obtained from the leaves of the Aloe vera plant is widely used to help treat burns and dry skin conditions and has also been used internally as a stimulant laxative. Still, the literature is mixed on the effectiveness and safety of these extracts. What health problems might they cause? Discuss

The ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethysts and made drinking vessels of them for this reason. The stone is associated with a number of other superstitions as well, being regarded as a love charm, a potent sleep aid, and what else?
