100th Anniversary of the Crossword Puzzle: Google Doodles

Dec 21, 2013

See the interactive version here!

We were lucky and excited to collaborate on our crossword doodle with Merl Reagle, one of the best and most well-known crossword constructors working today. Merl worked with Google engineer/crossword enthusiast, Tom Tabanao, to craft our puzzle grid and write all the clues. Merl’s knowledge of the puzzle world—and perspective on crosswords in particular—is considerable. We thoroughly enjoyed the wit and humor he brought to the whole endeavor. Here are Merl’s thoughts on the history of the crossword puzzle. -Ed.

First, it was a huge honor to be asked to do this. Many, many thanks to Tom Tabanao for pulling me in and shepherding the project through.

Second, it was a great opportunity to bring Arthur Wynne’s name into the public spotlight. He never made any money off the crossword, but he made tens of millions of puzzle fans around the world very happy. The fact that the first word across in the first-ever crossword was FUN is very appropriate, too. Crossword puzzles are indeed supposed to be fun—brainy fun, but fun nonetheless. The first puzzle also contained the word DOH, clued as “fiber of the gomuti […]

“J’ai frappé à la porte du Temple” FILM DOCUMENTAIRE REALISE ET PRODUIT PAR CARMEN LABAKI

Carmen Labaki primée à Hollywood pour le meilleur Film documentaire 2005, à l’ “Arpa International Film Festival” pour la réalisation et la production de “Arman Loubnan” (Les Arméniens du Liban), s’est lancée il y a deux ans, dans la réalisation et la production d’un nouveau documentaire sur la Franc-Maçonnerie dans le monde intitulé :

« J’ai frappé à la porte du Temple »

Pour la première fois, un film documentaire sur la Franc-Maçonnerie est traité mondialement, sans restrictions, sans interdits. Pour la première fois, on permet à quelqu’un de filmer sans simulation, les Rituels, Cérémonies, et Initiation, de filmer aussi les Temples et ses composants, le Cabinet de Réflexion et son mystère.

Malgré le sujet qui suscite beaucoup de méfiance, Carmen Labaki entre dans son histoire, venue de la nuit des temps. C’est un sujet qui a pour but d’être traité dans son ensemble, et à tous les points de vue. Sa spécificité est d’avoir franchi les frontières pour donner une image plus globale de la Franc-Maçonnerie. […]

French Freemason Catholic Priest To Appeal Vatican Punishment To Pope – CDF Ruled During Period Between Benedict Resignation and Francis Election

L’Express – France 10 July 2013

Father Vesin in L’Express by François Koch

Google Translation

The Express has published an article on 10 July four pages on Father Pascal Vesin , the pastor of the Church of Megève fired because he was denounced as a Freemason GODF by anonymous letters.

The Express was a long meeting Father Pascal Vesin and the Vicar General of the Diocese of Annecy Alain Fournier.

It appears from this investigation that the father Pascal was almost excommunicated for a “matter of principle” (the ban to be a member of a Masonic Lodge) and there is absolutely no evidence of the influence of its membership GODF to how it performed its function of priest. Being recognized in the Diocese that the results of his work at the head of the parish is very positive.

Vesin father wants to continue his fight … walking on Rome from 14 July to late August, with the aim of obtaining a hearing Francis Pope. He hopes to convince him to return to the maximum penalty was imposed. It is true that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith ruled on March 7, six […]

Freemason Bro. Tony Blair demands Western intervention to overthrow Assad

Telegraph 19 Jun 2013

Tony Blair demands Western intervention to overthrow Assad By Damien McElroy and agencies The consequences of refusing to intervene are likely to be more costly for the West than participating in the drive to oust the regime.

Speaking in Israel, the former prime minister acknowledged the “predominant emotion” in the West was to stay out of Syria, where rebels are battling to oust Bashar Assad and his regime, and avoid becoming embroiled in the politics of the region. “Undoubtedly the predominant emotion in the West today is to stay out of Syria; indeed to stay out of the region’s politics,” he said. “But as every day that passes shows, the cost of staying out may be paid in a higher price later.”

The comments came a day after G8 leaders papered over differences between the West and Russia to agree that a political solution to the conflict must be an international priority.

The Syrian National Coalition, the main opposition front body, said it was committed to participation in negotiations that sought to establish a transistional government.

“The Syrian National Coalition is committed to any political solution that puts an end to the […]

At 81, Don King Is Still A Crazy Sleazeball – ‘American legend and Prince Hall Freemason’

Dead Spin Blog 3/16/13

At 81, Don King Is Still A Crazy Sleazeball Isaac Rauch

Inspired by former Mizzou linebacker and current boxer Ryan Coyne’s acrimonious business relationship with Don King, St. Louis’s River Front Times recently caught up with the American legend and Prince Hall Freemason, insofar as you can catch up with someone that refuses to talk to you. As it turns out, Don King is as crazy, exploitative and intractable as ever, and though his boxing empire is crumbling, he’s still pretty good at ruining lives for an octogenarian.

Boxing is the rare sport where a manager or promoter can make money by signing clients to onerous contracts and then ignoring them for months, sometimes years at a time. King perfected the art of playing fighters off against each other and waiting until they were desperate for any kind of pay-out, and throughout the piece, one is struck at how effective a sleazeball he is–con men don’t achieve world renown without a clever approach to ripping people off. John McCain introduced a bill in the Senate essentially designed to stop Don King. It passed, became law, and failed to stop Don King.

Boxing was a […]

Can Freemason David Cameron explain why he has put us on al-Qaeda’s side?

Telegraph 05 Jun 2013

Can David Cameron explain why he has put us on al-Qaeda’s side? By Peter Oborne

The longer a prime minister remains in 10 Downing Street, the more likely he or she is to go mad. Something of the sort happened to Gordon Brown and also, from 2003 onwards if not before, to Tony Blair. No prime minister has left office in full possession of his or her mental faculties since Jim Callaghan in early 1979.

One of David Cameron’s admirable qualities has been his sanity. He is unexcitable. He is not paranoid, does not conspire against his colleagues, sit up to the small hours of the morning brooding, or hurl pieces of crockery around the room when in a violent rage. He is not subject to sudden, irrational mood-swings.

None of this can or should be taken for granted, and surely Samantha Cameron can take some of the credit. “My job is to get him out of here sane,” she tells friends.

But the Prime Minister has been in the job for three years (and Tory leader for nearly eight), and watching him answer questions on the floor of the House on […]
