You are correct and I will clarify the entry as follows:

1979 Jan 16,Aaliyeh (d.2001), R&B singer and actress, was born in Brooklyn and grew upin Detroit. In2001 she was killed (22) in a plane crash in the Bahamas. (SFC,8/27/01, p.A16)

Try searching "" using cowboy as the key word.

A search using "cowboy" in will bring up a good number of entries.

Can anyone find anything about cowboy timelines!!!! :0

I basically agree with your thoughts.
However restructuring the current TofH to reflect the HE calendar would be significant undertaking for me at this time. Until the project gets some significant funding, the current structure will have to remain in place.
Thanks for your feedback

Best regards

Hi, I'm interested in converting to the HE (Human Era or Holocene) calendar. As an amateur historian, i find the whole AD/CE-BC/BCE business annoying and clumsy, not to mention confusing. It impedes the development of a feel for the real flow of human history, making historical individuals, people such as Confucius, Gaius Marius, and Alexander the Great, seem as distant from us as fossils like Lucy or the Hobbits of Flores.
The TofH is a great reference. I hate to ask for more, but would/could you add the HE dates? I really don't understand why historians didn't rise up en masse to push for the HE calendar's adoption when it was first proposed in the 11990's. The Y2K brouhaha would have been the perfect time to popularize it.
Thanks again for a great service.

1905 Sep
27, Annalen der Physik published a fourth paper by Albert Einstein, "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?," in which Einstein developed an argument for arguably the most famous equation in the field of physics: E = mc&#C2;&#B2;. Einstein considered the equivalency equation to be of paramount importance because it showed that a massive particle possesses an energy, the "rest energy", distinct from its classical kinetic and potential energies.



1905 Einstein
presented his theory of relativity declaring that the very measurement of time intervals is affected by the motion of the observer. He proposed that light is itself quantized, or particle-like, to explain how electrons were emitted when light hit certain metals. He presented four papers, the first on Brownian motion, the second was on the composition of light, the third proposed the Special Theory of Relativity, and the fourth established the equivalence of mass and energy (see Sep 27). Einstein presented 5 papers this year, one of which was titled &#E2;P C;Does the Inertia of a Body Depend on its Energy Content?&#E2;P D; This paper provided an incomplete proof of E=mc2, an equation that had already been know for a few years. In 2008 Hans C. Ohanian authored &#E2;P C;Einstein&#E2;Pcs Mistakes: The Human Failings of Genius.&#E2;P D;
