    Insidet h i s i s s u eMay 2, 2011 - U.S. Special Op

    erations Forces

    killed Osama bin Laden during a

    raid on his

    secret compound in Abbottabad

    , Pakistan. The

    raid marked the culmination of a

    decade-long

    manhunt for the elusive leader o

    f the al-Qaeda

    terrorist organization based in the

    Middle East.

    May 5, 1961 - Alan Shepard becam

    e spacecraft

    Freedom 7 which reached an a

    May 14, 1796 - Smallpox vaccine

    was developed

    He coined the term vaccination

    for the new

    procedure of injecting

    a milder form of the

    disease into healthy

    persons resulting in

    immunity. Within

    eighteen months,

    12,000 people in

    England had been

    vaccinated and the

    number of smallpox

    deaths dropped by two-thirds.

    May 19, 1943 - Royal Air Force bo

    mbers

    successfully attacked dams in th

    e German Ruhr

    Valley using innovative ball-shap

    ed bouncing

    bombs that skipped along the w

    ater and exploded

    against the dams. The dams had

    provided drinking

    water for four million people and

    supplied 75% of

    the electrical power for industry i

    n the area.

    May 20, 1927 - Charles Lindbergh

    , a twenty- ve

    year old aviator, took off from Ro

    is attempting to

    win a $25,000 prize for the rst solo

    non-stop ight

    is. Thirty-three hours

    later, after a 3,600 mile journey, h

    e landed at Le

    Bourget, Paris, becoming an inst

    ant worldwide

    hero.

    May 26, 1940 - The Dunkirk evac

    uation began

    in order to save the British Exped

    itionary Force

    trapped by advancing German

    iNGreDieNtS400g dark chocolate (at least 55% cocoa solids)325g unsalted butter6 whole eggs2 egg yolks300g caster sugar50g cocoa powder80g plain fl our (can be replaced with gluten free fl our)70g fresh cherries, destoned and chopped30g crushed and chopped unsalted pecan nuts

    DireCtiONS1 Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter and base-line a 20cm-square baking tin with baking parchment.

    2 Gently melt chocolate and unsalted butter together in a bowl over hot water until smooth then cool a little.

    3 Whisk 6 whole eggs, 2 yolks and caster sugar together until pale. Fold the melted chocolate mix into the eggs. Sieve cocoa powder with plain fl our

    then fold everything together until evenly mixed. Fold in the chopped fresh cherries. Sprinkle the top with chopped pecans.

    4 Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until slightly risen at the edges. The crust on top should be very slightly cracked. Dont despair if it doesnt look cooked! The brownie will need to cool completely to go solid. Allow to cool completely in the tin.
