Hubble Space Telescope8,055,591A new, improved portrait of Hubble’s deepest-ever view of the universe, called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF, looks far away and back in time to reveal faint galaxies at one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.  This is the culmination of 10 years of observing a patch of sky that contains thousands of far-flung galaxies. The full-color XDF image shows previously unseen galaxies as they looked in the early universe, billions of years ago. Astronomers continue studying this area of sky with Hubble. Extensive ongoing observing programs, led by Harry Teplitz and Richard Ellis at the California Institute of Technology, will allow astronomers to study the deep-field galaxies with Hubble to even greater depths in ultraviolet and infrared light prior to the launch of JWST. These new results will provide even more extraordinary views of this region of the sky and will be shared with the public in the coming months.                                Want to know more? You can participate in an online webinar and hear three key astronomers of the XDF observing team describe how they assembled the landmark observation. They will illustrate and explain what Hubble’s powerful new view tells us about the evolving universe.   Viewers can send in questions for our panel of experts to discuss. The webinar will be broadcast at 1 p.m. Thursday Sept 27. Join us here for this Google Event, or watch and leave questions at the HubbleSite YouTube Channel. (http://www.youtube.com/hubblesitechannel). You can also ask your questions in advance here in comments, and we'll pass them on to our panel. The panelists will be: Garth Illingworth, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is the principal investigator of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2009 (HUDF09) Project.   Pascal Oesch, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project.   Dan Magee, programmer/data analyst at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project.

An unplanned for hatch, and some small hope that we will get the second generation of Twenty. We had 6 eggs from her in storage and they are in to bake.

We are not terribly hopeful as we've never had a successful hatch from her eggs. None of the roos were confident enough to mate her often. So, fingers crossed and time will tell.

I think this is the ultimate truth of gender and gender politics. Male and female aspects inextricably intertwined, with neither having ultimate power. Each aspect has its own form, function, and expression, and the impact we have on each other may be different in tone, but ultimately expresses a balance. A balance of kindness and cruelty, a balance of control and submission, a balance of power and weakness. It is not stark black and white; neither is it endless shades of grey. It certainly isn't the dominance of one over the other.Trying to paint it all one shade loses the truth and the beauty of it. No gender holds a monopoly on virtue or imperfection. We are all human and carry an endless fractal of both within us.

Misery Loves Comedy
We lost Twenty a few moments ago.... boy did that happen fast. Yesterday she was the Queen of the Yard, today she passed in just a few hours. She came inside, settled in her box, was really listless and not interested in mealworms(!). A couple of hours later she stood up, lay back down and was gone.

She was the last bird from our very first flock. She survived two fox attacks, a couple of pretty severe illnesses, and everything life threw at her. She was an awesome chicken, and I have the sads. You tell yourself not to get attached, but....

Mr. Praline: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.

Owner: We're closin' for lunch.

Mr. Praline: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this chicken what I purchased not four years ago from this very boutique.

Owner: Oh yes, the, uh, the leghorn...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?

Mr. Praline: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'She's dead, that's what's wrong with it!

Owner: No, no, she's uh,...she's resting.

Mr. Praline: Look, matey, I know a dead chicken when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.

Owner: No no she's not dead, she's, she's restin'! Remarkable bird, the leghorn, idn'it, ay? Beautiful plumage!

Mr. Praline: The plumage don't enter into it. It's stone dead.

Owner: Nononono, no, no! 'She's resting!

Mr. Praline: All right then, if she's restin', I'll wake her up! (shouting at the cage) 'Ello, Mister Polly Parrot! I've got a lovely fresh mealworms for you if you show...

(owner hits the box)

Owner: There, she moved!

Mr. Praline: No, she didn't, that was you hitting the box!

Owner: I never!!

Mr. Praline: Yes, you did!

Owner: I never, never did anything...

Mr. Praline: (yelling and hitting the cage repeatedly) 'ELLO TWENTY!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!

Mr. Praline: Now that's what I call a dead chicken.

Owner: No, no.....No, 'she's stunned!

Mr. Praline: STUNNED?!?

Owner: Yeah! You stunned her, just as she was wakin' up! Leghorns stun easily, major.

Mr. Praline: Um...now look...now look, mate, I've definitely 'ad enough of this. That chicken is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not four years ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein' tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.

Owner: Well, she's...she's, ah...probably pining for the fjords.....

This is Bucket Mister. He is the fifth rooster (of five) and lives on the margins at the moment. Once the new coops are in place, he will finally have his own flock. In the meantime, we just kinda feel sorry for him. He's a great rooster, a phoenix/wyandotte hybrid, but as such is significantly outweighed by the other roos and so doesn't really have a chance with the girlies.

This is Twenty. She is our house chicken. As our oldest remaining bird she has a special place and has claimed the right to be an inside chook. She likes to come in and sit with us, but this is the first time she's claimed a space, my space, on the sofa.

It's a good thing I put a towel down, as she laid an egg.

Not sure which is sillier, the house chook or the humans.

When I was a lad, there was a local artist who built life sized dinosaurs out of car parts. They were as cool as this.

Via +Travis Bird

Susan Beatrice is an artist who recycles old vintage watch parts and turns them into beautifully intricate sculptures.
She is also a talented sand sculptor and painter, and uses her many talents to perfect her watch sculptures.
Recycled art is undoubtedly cool. And for an artist who's all about the steampunk aesthetic, there's no better source of recycled materials than old watches. Susan Beatrice takes the inner workings of old watches and creates delicate, intricate, lifelike pieces — and because they're made of old metal gears, levers and screws, her pieces carry an awesome steampunk vibe 🌟

Since the mealworms proved so interesting to us, and attractive to the birds, we decided to go ahead and get a wormery going as well. I think this is all leading to an aqua/agri/vermi-culture system.

Step by step though. Step by step.

Since the mealworms proved so interesting to us, and attractive to the birds, we decided to go ahead and get a wormery going as well. I think this is all leading to an aqua/agri/vermi-culture system.

Mealworms!

Purchased a kilo of them this week with the intent to have them in steady production for the birds. Found them far more mesmerising than I expected to and the creepy factor isn't as strong as I imagined.

Hard to tell that from this time lapse, though. This records about 3 hours of activity.

Ordered some inexpensive chicken coops, for a couple of reasons. First, it will allow us to quickly house our current roosters. This had been needed for years from a human perspective. I think the chickens would argue there is no need to pen them up at all.

More interestingly from my perspective, I can see how they are constructed and incorporate the lessons in my own designs and constructions.

Unfortunately, it will be about 4 weeks before I can begin with any of them. I have to wait that long for the digging machines to make the gravel beds for them to sit upon.

Entertainment Weekly can exclusively reveal that independent entertainment studio IM Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion have struck a deal to turn the iconic comic book character into a live-action TV show called Judge Dredd: Mega City One. The potential show is set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. The plan is to make the series an ensemble drama about a team of Judges — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner — as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them....

Fairport Convention - 50th Anniversary Tour
07 October 2017
Saw them in the early 80's and was hooked. Saw them on the 35th Anniversary tour and find it very hard to believe that 15 years has passed since. Either way, quite looking forward to this. Second row, centre stage.

So, it turns out digging holes is hard
I've cut the frame that needs to be inset to ground level. I've painted the guidelines on the ground. I prepped my digging tools, marking the depth I need with masking tape. I cut around the perimeter using an edger. I used the mattock to chuck up the sod, and got some 'help' from some of the girls. Several digging and resting sessions later, and I'm not even close. Broke out the 2 blade rototiller. Several sessions later, still not even close.

Came inside, did some research, and am arranging to rent a real digging tool.

In the 'cancer silver lining' category, I can now justify the expense of such a rental to myself. I tried doing it the 'strong and cheap' way, but am just not up to it physically any more.

I'll go ahead and dig 4 pits while I have the machine. I wasn't planning on doing that many at once, but it makes sense to do them all while I can.

Plus, I get to play with a Bobcat for a couple of days. Like a Tonka toy for adults 😆___

For many years now the logo “Keep calm and carry on” has been a huge hit across Europe. You can find it on posters, T-shirts and mugs – both the original text as distributed in 1939, to steel the British people for the war to come, as well as many “funny” variations. The slogan’s popularity is easy to understand as it unites the most important positive stereotypes about Britain in Europe: a pragmatic and liberal island people who were on the right side in second world war.

Yet as the government of Theresa May and its cheerleaders in the billionaire-owned press continue their illogical, ignorant and deluded promises and accusations over Brexit, it is time for Europeans to reconsider this idea of the British – or, to be more accurate, of the English.

For many years now the logo “Keep calm and carry on” has been a huge hit across Europe. You can find it on posters, T-shirts and mugs – both the original text as distributed in 1939, to steel the British people for the war to come, as well as many “funny” variations. The slogan’s popularity is easy to understand as it unites the most important positive stereotypes about Britain in Europe: a pragmatic and liberal island people who were on the right side in second world war.

Yet as the government of Theresa May and its cheerleaders in the billionaire-owned press continue their illogical, ignorant and deluded promises and accusations over Brexit, it is time for Europeans to reconsider this idea of the British – or, to be more accurate, of the English.

For over a year now, virtually all signs coming out of London suggest that Europeans are not just bidding farewell to an EU member state. They must also come to grips with a future in which their neighbours across the Channel and the North Sea are no longer predictable or rational.

Britain’s reputation for reliability is simply not reconcilable with the presence of Boris Johnson in the cabinet. The country’s reputation for stable government cannot be squared with the impending Brexit-induced chaos and upheaval in Scotland and Northern Ireland. With every new round of applause from Viktor Orbán in Hungary, Marine Le Pen in France and Donald Trump, Britain’s image as one of “the good guys” in the global fight for liberal values looks more obsolete.

And then there is Theresa May herself. Her claim this week that the EU is trying to influence the elections in Britain through a leak to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung is the latest example of a long list of statements that simply make no sense. Britain is not the centre of the world, and the idea that EU leaders would sit together plotting a victory for Jeremy Corbyn is laughable.

Far more likely is that EU leaders decided to leak the proceedings of their dinner on Sunday with May in order to warn their own public about how irrational Britain has become. How the country believes itself to have the upper hand in a negotiation with a group of nations seven times its own size. How it wants to be part of the single market while refusing to recognise the authority of the European court governing that market. And, most alarmingly, how badly informed May still is about the practical consequences both of Brexit and of a no-deal crash out of the EU.

Perhaps other Europeans have never looked closely enough at the English. The fact is that millions of the English still believe what they have been told by the Brexiteers: that they can have the benefits of EU membership without its obligations.

If May were a stateswoman, she would now be preparing her own people for the very painful sacrifices ahead. Instead she prefers to indulge in the fantasy that Britain is still a world power capable of dictating its terms to other countries. Even worse, she is doing nothing to bring Brexit-sceptics – the 48% – back into the national conversation, preferring instead to let the tabloids engage in their intimidation and character assassination.

The British writer Martin Amis once wrote that his country had responded to the loss of empire by “embracing frivolity”. This is a beautiful and rather kind understatement to characterise the almost casual way in which Great Britain organised its EU referendum, how it waged the campaign, and how it has acted in the 10 months since.

As painful as it is for all those in Europe who loved the Britain they thought they knew, there is no escaping it: under the leadership of Theresa May the United Kingdom can no longer be considered a serious country.___

At 210 meters, the Tour Montparnasse is the tallest building in Paris. The tower's public observation deck at offers a panoramic view of the city and its main landmark, the Eiffel Tower.

Gorillaz - 04 November 2017
Back in 2010 we saw Gorillaz at Roskilde festival. We hadn't intended to, in fact I wasn't even aware they were playing, but they turned out to be my favourite act of the festival.

I was among the first to buy tickets for the Copenhagen show this morning and got some pretty awesome seats (Section 117, row 14). We are both really looking forward to this show.
