22 hottest peppers in the world

Saint Waldetrudis: A Model for All Christians

The history of the Catholic Church overflows with thousands of saints, each one a model of virtue and sanctity; an image of Christ in the world.  Most are priests or religious; however, many saints were married, offering a different model of holiness for Christ’s flock. Then there are saints like Saint Waldetrudis, whose feast falls on April 9 (she is sometimes called Waltrude or Waudru). Waldetrudis falls into a more select group of saints: those who were married and then later became a member ...

Ocean cities add 'blue' to green engineering

As urban areas grow in population and footprint, many coastal cities are creating land where there once was ocean. This so-called “reclaiming” of land is not new — in fact, civilizations have been building land on top of bodies of water dating back to the Ancient Egyptians.

A new trend, called blue-green infrastructure, marries ecos...
