Kabupaten Lumajang, adalah sebuah kabupaten di Provinsi Jawa Timur, Indonesia. Ibu kotanya adalah Lumajang. Kabupaten ini berbatasan dengan Kabupaten Probolinggo di utara, Kabupaten Jember di timur, Samudra Hindia di selatan, serta Kabupaten Malang di barat. Kabupaten Lumajang terletak di wilayah Tapal Kuda, Jawa Timur.

Nama Lumajang berasal dari nama tempat "Lamajang" yang diketahui dari penelusuran sejarah, data prasasti, naskah-naskah kuno, bukti-bukti petilasan dan hasil kajian pada beberapa seminar dalam rangka menetapkan hari jadinya. Prasasti Mula Malurung adalah prasasti tertua yang menyebut keberadaan "Nagara Lamajang", karenanya dianggap sebagai titik tolak hari jadi Lumajang. Prasasti yang ditemukan pada tahun 1975 di Kediri dan berangka 1177 tahun Saka ini diterbitkan oleh Raja Kertanegara dari Singasari untuk memperingati anugerah Raja Seminingrat kepada Pranaraja berupa dua desa perdikan, Mula dan Malurung.

Prasasti mula malurung terdiri dari 12 lempengan tembaga, dan lempengan VII halaman A memuat nama-nama putera-puteri dan kerabat Raja Seminingrat yang diangkat menjadi raja-raja bawahan. Salah satunya, disebutkan bahwa Nararya Kirana yang telah dianggap seolah-olah putera sang Prabu, dijadikan raja di Lumajang. Menurut prasasti tersebut penetapan itu terjadi pada tahun 1177 Saka, yang sesuai dengan tanggal 14 Dulkaidah 1165 tahun Jawa atau tanggal 15 Desember 1255 Masehi.

Mengingat cukup meyakinkan bahwa pada 1255 M itu "Negara Lamajang" sudah merupakan sebuah negara yang berpenduduk, mempunyai wilayah, mempunyai raja (pemimpin) dan pemerintahan yang teratur, maka ditetapkanlah tanggal 15 Desember 1255 M sebagai hari jadi Lumajang yang dituangkan dalam Keputusan Bupati Kepala Daerah Tingkat II Lumajang Nomor 414 Tahun 1990 tanggal 20 Oktober 1990.

I have zero idea where my mind is today. I think I just have too much going through it. Originally I was going to take it easy on shoes during December but Reggie from Reggie and the Full Effect is playing tonight, so I’m going, which is why I wore my @yourbuddyreggie shirt. Funnier thing is today marks one year that I had shaved the side of my head. It’s crazy time went that quick and tomorrow is the year anniversary of leaving the job that was killing my soul.
Today is National Bouillabaisse Day. This is a type of seafood dish, so it’s definitely not for me.

Today in history in 1900s German physicist Max Planck published his study of the effect of radiation on a “black body” substance and the quantum theory of modern physics is created. This would help other scientist and make the development of quantum mechanics possible. .

#TodayinHistory: #OnThisDay in 1920, the Wakefield—241st Street subway station opened in the #Bronx. Known as the “Becker Avenue” station during its construction, Wakefield—241st Street was completed three years after the original ten stations of the #IRT White Plains Road line, extending the subway further north from the previous terminal at 238th Street—Nereid Avenue. It is the northernmost station in the entire #NYCSubway system to date, located nearly 30 miles away from the southernmost station, Coney Island—Stillwell Avenue. This image from the #NYTMCollection shows the station in 1924, and showcases the automobiles and storefronts of the period. Do you visit this station during your daily commute?

Today in history: 1958 Soviets Reach the Southern Pole of Inaccessibility

A Pole of Inaccessibility is a location on Earth that is extremely difficult to access.
In the North, it is the point in the Arctic Ocean that is farthest from land, while in the Southern Hemisphere it is the point farthest from the Southern Ocean on Antarctica.
In 1958, a Soviet team led by Yevgeny Tolstikov became the first people in history to reach the Southern Pole of Inaccessibility, which is 546 miles (878 kilometers) from the geographic South Pole. Temperatures at this location averages around – 73 degree F (–58 degrees C). #southpole #antarctica #natgeo #history #todayinhistory #ussr #sovietunion #geography #1950s #snow #ice #cold #natgeoadventure #natgeorussia #natgeoexpeditions #discovery #expedition #research #science #explorers #planetearth #discoverychannel #knowledge #facts

Today on December 14, 1814, the Royal Navy defeats a hastily assembled squadron of American ships at the Battle of Lake Borgne.
•••••
The Battle of Lake Borgne took place during the War of 1812 in the southern theatre of the United States. The naval battle pitted the well-equipped British Navy against an outnumbered, hastily assembled group of U.S. gunboats. The British had suffered a number of losses in North America during the war and were now focused on invading New Orleans. British Admiral, Alexander Cochrane, arrived off the coast of Louisiana on December 9th and ordered his fleet to hunt out and destroy any American naval resistance.
•••••
The British armed 42 long boats with at least one 12 to 24 pounder carronade, as well as three gigs each mounting a long brass 12 pounder cannon. The American squadron had five Jeffersonian-class gunboats, two sloops-of-war (single gundeck ships), and one armed schooner. The British rowed for more than a day before eventually finding the American blockade. They divided into three squadrons (as seen in the picture) and advanced toward their enemy under fire. The engagement lasted only two hours. However, the Americans were still able to inflict considerable damage to the British boats before finally surrendering.
•••••
The British victory gave them full control over the surrounding lakes and seaways, providing a safe launch pad for assaulting their main target of New Orleans. While the American defeat at Lake Borgne caused widespread panic among the local population, it did provide Andrew Jackson with more time to prepare the city’s defenses. The main land assault of the Battle of New Orleans came to head a few weeks later on January 8, 1815. Jackson successfully mounted a brave defense against the far superior British Army and save the city from invasion.

Jeff Getty Becomes First Person to Receive Bone Marrow Transplant from Baboon
.
Jeff Getty was an AIDS patient and activist who received the first bone marrow transplant from a baboon. Getty had been diagnosed with AIDS 14 years prior, and was told he only had a year to live. Getty was told that the transplant could possibly quicken his death; partly because there was a possibility he could’ve contracted animal viruses.
.🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵
Animal rights activists were opposed to the procedure because the transplant meant they had to kill the baboon after. Getty fought for two years to get permission from the FDA for the transplant. The reason why Getty was receiving a bone marrow transplant from a baboon was because most primates are resistant to HIV. Unfortunately, Getty’s body rejected the baboon cells.
.🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵
The FDA then banned all similar procedures moving forward. Within the first year after the transplant, Getty’s health improved immensely but that could’ve been because he was also receiving radiation and chemotherapy. Sadly, Getty passed 11 years later in 2006.
.🐵🐵🐵🐵🐵
I really enjoyed this entry because it goes to show that doctors don’t know everything, and you can’t fully predict the outcome of anyone’s medical condition. It’s amazing how far our understanding of AIDS has come since the early 1980’s.

Dec 14, 1911 Norwegian Roald Amundsen becomes the first explorer to reach the South Pole, beating his British rival, Robert Falcon Scott.
.
.
They planted the Norwegian flag and named the polar plateau "King Haakon VII's Plateau". .
Amundsen later reflected on the irony of his achievement: "Never has a man achieved a goal so diametrically opposed to his wishes. The area around the North Pole—devil take it—had fascinated me since childhood, and now here I was at the South Pole. Could anything be more crazy?"
.
For the next three days the men worked to fix the exact position of the pole; after the conflicting and disputed claims of Cook and Peary in the north, Amundsen wanted to leave unmistakable markers for Scott. After taking several sextant readings at different times of day, Bjaaland, Wisting and Hassel skied out in different directions to "box" the pole; Amundsen reasoned that between them they would bracket the exact point. Finally the party pitched a tent, which they called Polheim, as near as possible to the actual pole as they could calculate by their observations. In the tent Amundsen left equipment for Scott, and a letter addressed to King Haakon which he requested Scott to deliver.

#OnThisDay Dec 14, 2008: President George W. Bush goes to Iraq and is almost struck by two shoes thrown at him by Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi during a news conference in Baghdad. Al-Zaidi is then dragged out of the room and tortured while in the custody of the Iraqi Police and the U.S. Secret Service. His shoe throwing became a potent symbol of Iraqi opposition and resistance to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. #TodayInHistory

Repost from @skinandscentsaga - Winter roses of the day - from the city where the creator of the famous #RoseIsARoseIsARose lived from the age of 6 till 17 - actually also known for the even catchier #ThereIsNoThereThere,
Rose Santal & Santal Austere by Chatillon Lux, a small indie perfumer from St. Louis, Missouri (city I love tenderly, for various reasons)
As different as they're, the duo is uniquely united by a cool dusky, yet balmy, santal variations - sweetly camphoraceous, almost eucalyptus-like. Rose is a cool crimson varietal, a bit more dispassionate, with dry aromatic red, slightly bitter berries & cardamom hint, amicably cool, with a thin creamy santal lace. Sweetness with pursed lips, hiding a benevolent smile, if you will.
From the weekly mask regimen - Rose Centifolia Supercharged by SNP, as always, packed with precious botanicals.
La Rose A Poudre Starlight Sparkle, another holiday limited edition by Lancôme, will share more in a future post.
A few exciting rose connections of note:
Paul Eluard ( La Rose Publique), Nostradamus (rose pill, plague remedy, his invention!), and Tycho Brahe (check on Shakespeare borrowing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern) - all born today. And will just throw Felix the Cat right in here.
The ants are real. The card is to make the season feel more wintery.

When George Washington passed away on December 14, 1799, the news took weeks to get out. Compare that to two weeks ago when former president George H.W. Bush passed away and we got the news almost instantly! This letter written by Washington's private secretary announcing the news didn't appear in this Pennsylvania newspaper until 10 days after Washington's death. (The Pennsylvania Gazette, 12.24.1799).

1911 - Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen became the first man to reach the South Pole. He reached the destination 35 days ahead of Captain Robert F. Scott. Doesn’t this scenario seem like when a contestant on The Price is Right bids $1 after everyone bids? Cheap shot Amundsen. #TodayInHistory
