NASA2,837,555Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008308

SF thinks $114K/yr is middle income

For one specific gender, sexuality, age and ethnicity.
Unless you are in that group, you're making 1/2 - 1/5th of that amount.

I'm looking forward to #berniesanders campaign in the coming year.

At some point, Bernie will get access to #bigdata and be compelled to be honest about the reality of this country.

Should interesting to see how many of his cheer squad still supports him when they get shifted one or more columns to the right.

Yea, it's not Death Wish Coffee...

That has the most caffeine.

Since the buzz is all that matters I'd recommend just eating your caffeine.

I drove cross country in less than 72 hours without sleeping when I needed to and still missed an exit / lost the ability to differentiate north from south.

Hey, but Death Wish got a free Super Bowl commerical and are roasting 1,000+ lbs of coffee per day.

Perspective is everything

Locals avoided downtown for two weeks.

Tourists and recently arrived transplants didn't complain because they have no reference point.

Lots of money was made, statical data was "modeled" and everyone pointed the finger at someone else or didn't want to bring attention to themselves so they said nothing in protest so, yeah, it was a success.

Monday is going to be interesting

After the parties end for #sb50, fans of the losing team might not be the only ones crying at work tomorrow.

"more disturbing for Silicon Valley cheerleaders is the fact that the computer and telecommunications sectors, which had been in expansion mode almost every month for the last three years, were the third and fourth largest sectors for corporate layoffs, with 14,374 in job cuts"

Saavy spin doctors would scream "Automation!" & "A.I. !!!" as a distraction while they finish selling off their stocks.

There could be two bubbles popping soon, the stocks then the reality distortion bubble some people have been living in.

Math is universal, no matter what you believe,

The result is always the same.

Voter turnout for the Iowa caucus was only about 20%, lower than 2004 & 2012 and MUCH lower than 2008's 39%

If everyone is cheering about the Millennial vote, someone forgot do the math to back up their fervor.

You may be excited but, 80%+ of everyone, including Millennials, didn't care enough to even vote for a candidate.

Based on Social Media's endless barrage of rhetoric one would hope some of it is sticking. Obviously, it's not.

Maybe your brow beating, chest thumping "better than you" war chats are part of why people, in general, tune out.

Just like every other Presidental election.

Coming soon to a biotech near you

Panic and terror.

About $28B wasted (more than likely investor funding) on shoddy research.

"What you mean we can't just put aside money for lawsuits?!? We already bought the 800 number!"

Thanks to all the cat videos the internet response time to actual information is just over a year.

*Some days I think Apple says: *

"Let's see who we can piss off today?"

Not that Apple would have the conceptual ability to imagine that the biometrics should be optional for some users do to physical limitations.

"I played with a fireworks a lot. No finger tips"

Good news, bad news

Good news: There are now 22 gender options and polyamorous for those of you still looking for partner or partners.

Bad news: If you are looking on OKCupid, you are more than likely at least a little racist. Some are a lot racist.

Everyone else is just irrationally biased as fuck.

Yaaaay!

LinkedIn revealed to be digital ponzi scheme

Two high schools students from Sugarland, TX crunched the numbers with shocking results.

"The average user had a better chance of getting laid with AshleyMadsion than finding a job via LinkedIn"

"Cheering for your favorite wrestler in WWE is more impactful to the outcome the match than trying anything LinkedIn suggests to 'improve your profile' "

Federal investigations found an empty office building with a large LinkedIn sign out front.

"Seems one was ever employed by LinkedIn the company or ever gotten a job via LinkedIn. All the smiling employee pictures seemed to have been taking from European dating websites."

Geraldo Rivera is expected to hold a press conference to announce his new special "The Search for LinkedIn"

Unless you are in that group, you're making 1/2 - 1/5th of that amount.

At some point, Bernie will get access to #bigdata and be compelled to be honest about the reality of this country.

Should interesting to see how many of his cheer squad still supports him when they get shifted one or more columns to the right.

#bullshit #dumb #scarcasm #wrongdoitagain

The term “solar energy” usually conjures up visions of blue glass rectangles, absorbing sunlight and turning it into electricity. But there’s another way to take advantage of the sun’s power—use it to create hydrogen fuel.
A group of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, has found a way to make the devices that use sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen much more efficient. They mix two different materials one that strongly absorbs sunlight and one that efficiently conducts electricity to build a device with the strengths of each. They describe their results in the current issue of ACS Central Science.
The device is a photoelectrochemical cell, which captures sunlight to generate electric current, and then uses the current to split water. The resulting hydrogen can be stored, and later used to power a car’s fuel cell, for instance.

Back in 2013, Peidong Yang a chemist at the University of California Berkeley, demonstrated just such a PEC cell, which he and his colleagues built with semiconductor nanowires. The problem was the cell didn’t generate very much current, and therefore the splitting happened very slowly. It turned out the bottleneck lay in the photoanode, which was made of titanium dioxide nanowire. TiO2 has a large bandgap, which leads it to absorb ultraviolet light very well. It’s not so good with visible light.
Other materials—bismuth vanadate is one—are better at absorbing sunlight but don’t conduct electricity nearly as well as titanium dioxide. But Yang thought he could achieve the best of both worlds by making the two work together. He built nanowires out of tantalum and TiO2, then coated them with particles of bismuth vanadate. The BiVO4 absorbs the photons of sunlight, and passes electrons to the TiO2.
It’s still not as good as a photocathode, but it’s progress Yang says.

The silicon nanowire photocathode has currents greater than 25 milliamps per square centimeter, but the photoanode only reaches 2.1 mA/cm2. The smallest current determines the efficiency of the cell.
Yang is hopeful he can find a combination that will work even better. “We are looking at a couple other material compositions,” he says. Many research groups are looking into this very challenging area.
Indeed, plenty of researchers would like to make a marriage between solar energy and hydrogen. Both Toyota and Hyundai have introduced SUVs that operate on hydrogen-based fuel cells, but owners still face the challenge of gassing up; hydrogen is flammable and can be difficult to transport, and there just aren’t that many fueling stations. The solution may be to rely on different fuels that are easier to handle and convert them to hydrogen right at the fuel cell, says Nico Hotz a materials scientist at Duke University. Instead of using, transporting, and storing pure hydrogen, we want to use any kind of fuel that is easy to use, transport, and store Hotz told a session of the Material Research Society’s fall meeting in Boston in December.

The idea, he explained, is to take a fuel such as methanol, ethanol, or methane, mix it with water, and heat it up to between 300°C and 400°C to create a reaction that produces hydrogen, which the fuel cell can then burn. Traditionally, this steam reforming process has burned some of the fuel in order to produce the necessary heat; running the process with natural gas typically burns about half of the gas. “We say that’s a waste of fuel,” Hotz said. “We want to convert all our fuel to hydrogen.”
He and his colleagues are developing catalysts that can help the process along. They created nanoparticles made of copper oxide, zinc oxide, and aluminum nitrate. With enough copper oxide in the mix, and with reactor temperatures between 220°C and 295°C, and methanol-water mixes flowing into the reactor at rates between 2 and 50 microliters per minute, they achieved complete conversion of the fuel...___Nope, not real because Elon didn't say so

When you assimilate yourself into a culture

It's appropriation.

When you, as yourself and your culture, participate in another's culture it is appreciation.

If Beyonce was Beyonce with a cast of Indian dancers, that would be appreciation.

Putting Beyonce in Indian roles and covering the Coldplay "band" in Holi powder is appropriation without purpose.

The song is basic pop (without even a shred of Indian elements) so shooting in India must be cheaper than studio time in Hollywood.

We've watched as pop fed #blaxplotation and #nipponphile took over everything we saw now, we have #desilust

Is anyone actually surprised?
