" The House of Gold." ? - NERO'S MA11VF.LLOUS PALACE IN HOME. - » . . An" interesting description of the wonderful "Houso of Gold" which Nero had built for hiin between the Palatine aiid Esquilino hills in Home was given by M. Prechat in a recent lecture in Paris. This' mighty palace, covered with' plates of gold onriched with ivory and adorned with a multitude of beautiful statues, covered an area equivalent to tho Champs Elysees and tho Place . dc "la Concorde. Tho Emperor conceived the idea after reading Ovid's description of the Palace of the Sun in the "Meta morphosis." And it was in tho guise of the Sun God that Nero had a statue ot himself made near ly 99ft. high. This colossus stood in a great four-horsed chariot, and was erected in front of the "House of Cold." Within the palace walls was a lake, which ancient authors compare to a sea, and on its waters wero , given- the sumptuous nautical fes tivities of which one reads.

Is the Sun Losing Mass? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 28 August 1914

Is the Sun Losing Mass ? 1 The- work of Einstein on .the Principle of Relativity shows that a body which radiates energy loses a portion of its mass depending on the energy radiated. It follows that the sun, which continually ra diates energy, is constantly. losing mass. M. J. Hosier has calculat ed that the sun loses a mass equal to that' of our earth in thirty mil lion years. If it lie assumed that the moss thus lost is gravitational mass, it follows that the length of the, year increases by six seconds in a million years, and that in the same time the mean longitude of the earth is affected in such a way as to produce a variation of one tenth of a year, i.e.,. a retardation of thirty-six days in the seasons. Such variations are too minute to be ob servable. In stellar systems pos sessing a higher temperature the ef fect "would be much more marked, for the energy radiated by a body varies as the fourth power of its ubsoluto temperature. If, as Sf. Nordmann believes, there exists s...
