Cokie Roberts, legendary Liberal commentator

Cokie Roberts, long the face of ABC’s national news, has reposed. She won countless awards, including three Emmys from the National Academy of Television throughout her decades-long career. Mrs. Roberts was inducted into the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame and cited by the American Women in Radio and Television (now called Advancing Women in Media) as one of the 50 greatest women in the history of broadcasting. She was named a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress in 2008.

Born Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Boggs on December 27 1943 in New Orleans. New York Times food critic and author, Craig Claiborne was a cousin. She is survived by her husband, fellow journalist Steven Roberts, her children, Lee and Rebecca and her six grandchildren.

Her father was (Thomas) Hale Boggs, the former Democratic House majority leader and representative from New Orleans and a member of the Warren commission that investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Hale Boggs died in a plane crash in Alaska in 1972, and his wife Lindy Boggs was elected to fill her late husband’s congressional seat. Later, Mrs. Boggs was later appointed to be the U.S. ambassador to the Holy See by President Bill Clinton in 1997.

I cannot take full credit for this one. David Monroe, author of Personal Moon-to-Sun Returns 2, suggested the Libra rising, I pinned it down from there. Mr. Monroe liked the final product, so I decided to go with it. It does seem to work. The Mars in Gemini in the 8th seems to suggest breast cancer. Her ascendant at 19 Libra (HS) — Portrait of a septuagenarian — highlighting her role as a paragon in her field for her practical contributions — is conjunct her Part of Fortune and the high amount of air in her chart shows up often in “talking” heads.

Roberts’ siblings also took a liking to politics. Her older brother, Thomas Boggs Jr., was a lobbyist and her sister Barbara Boggs Sigmund was the former mayor of Princeton, New Jersey. Her younger brother, William, died as an infant, and her other two siblings have predeceased her.

Her death was due to complications from breast cancer. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and successfully treated, but it reoccurred, and her second fight was not as successful.

Dr. Coryell & Prometheus or should we say Clinton-ium ?

Coryell’s early years

Charles DuBois Coryell was born on February 21, 1912 at 6:45 am in Los Angeles, according to CC Zain who lists him as one of his notables. Dr. Coyrell was an American chemist and a co-discoverer of the element promethium, a building block for the nuclear reactor. Coryell earned a Ph.D at California Institute of Technology in 1935 shortly after the discovery the Pluto in 1930. During the late 1930s he engaged in research on the structure of hemoglobin in association with Linus Pauling.

He also taught at UCLA before 1942 In 1942 he accepted a position in the Manhattan Project, for which he was Chief of the Fission Products Section, both at the University of Chicago (1942–1946) and at Clinton Laboratories (now Oak Ridge National Laboratory) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee (1943–1946) His group had responsibility for characterizing radioactive isotopes created by the fission of uranium and for developing a process for chemical separation of plutonium.

Manhattan Project & Beyond

In 1945 he was a member of the Clinton Laboratories team, with Jacob Marinsky and Lawrence E. Glendenin, that isolated the previously undocumented rare-earth element Marinsky and Glendenin produced this element (later named “promethium”) both by extraction from fission products and by bombarding neodymium with neutrons. The team isolated promethium via ion-exchange chromatography, a buffering technique used in biomolecule purification. It separates the molecules on the basis of their charge by exploiting the interaction of them to the buffering agent in reiterative cycles until they isolate their preferred one.

Publication of the finding was delayed until later due to the war. Marinsky and Glendenin announced the discovery at a meeting of the American Chemical Society in September 1947. Upon the suggestion of Grace Mary, Coryell’s wife, the team named the new element for the mythical Prometheus, who stole fire from the gods and was punished for the act by Zeus instead of “clintonium” for the facility where it was isolated.

Dr. Coryell won the Atomic Energy Commission’s citation and medal for advancement in nuclear chemistry in 1970. and was a consultant of the commission laboratories since 1946.

In 1960 he won the American Chemical Society’s award for nuclear applications in chemistry. In his award address, he said that all the heavy chemical elements in the solar system were born in the death throes of at least one star that exploded more than five billion years ago.

Scoping out Coryell’s Chart

Dr. Coryell is a Jupiter Bucket in the 10th house with his Sun partile his Ascendant at 03 Pisces, two angels bringing protection to mankind (just like Prometheus did with fire) highlighting how he was able to make his dreams an effective reality. his North Node in Aries, makes him lucky in love, as his marriage to Grace Mary testifies, and a desire to assert his dreams and convictions. Neptune in his 5th house suggests that he and Mrs. Coryell were well suited and “made” for one another.
