Hubble Space Telescope8,052,741A 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.

It has now been 1 month since I decided I was tired of being a fat bastard.

In that time, I have cut my daily caloric intake substantially, aiming for 1500 kcal a day, but averaging closer to 2000. I have lost 5 and a bit kilos in the same period.

Overall, I have eaten what I like, with adjustments of serving size and frequency of consumption providing most of the calorie savings. I have also been quite active, relatively speaking, so I have had a least a few negative calorie days.

All things considered, it's been easier than I feared it would be. Must have been time. I have another 28 kilos to lose though, so time will tell.

I have an idea...are you in OR are you out? ;) Following the regular success of #dogweekend (which will return again later in the year!) I wondered if anyone would like to take part in something a little LARGER, that more people could join in? Let's call it #animalweek, starting in a months time ish, date to be determined. I'll create a Google event (event though they are not really working as they should) and we could do the same as #dogweekend and use the hash tag #animalweek too.

What say you? :) If we get at least 10 of us it will be fun to see everyone's pictures over the course of the week. TUNE!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3UqvWk8-uw let's stir things up a bit around here! :)

Summer scarves are à la mode here at Hermit House Haute Coture this summer season. The chicks just love them, and you are sure of a hot time.

Ok, more seriously, the scarf allows me to cuddle them in a way that sorta simulates a momma chirp, provides them with a dark warm place to rest, ample opportunity for exploration, allows me to carry them easily, frees my hands for other uses, and gets them habituated to close human contact.

That it is heartwarming and uber cute is just a bonus.

Quite an interesting read.

Keep them wild, or turn them into real doggy analogues? ;-) "People who live with cats like to joke about how these small fuzzy creatures are still wild, basically training us rather than the other way around. Now a new genetic study of ancient cat DNA reveals that we are basically right. Cats were not domesticated in the same way dogs, cows, pigs, and goats were. They have lived among us, but it wasn't until very recently that we began to change them.

Unlike dogs, whose bodies and temperaments have transformed radically during the roughly 30,000 years we've lived with them, domestic cats are almost identical to their wild counterparts—physically and genetically. House cats also show none of the typical signs of animal domestication, such as infantilization of facial features, decreased tooth size, and docility. Wildcats are neither social nor hierarchical, which also makes them hard to integrate into human communities.
[...]
University of Leuven geneticist Claudio Ottoni worked with a large international team of researchers to analyze the mitochondrial DNA of more than 200 ancient and modern cats, spanning the past 9,000 years. Mitochondrial DNA is inherited unchanged solely from the mother, and it is often used to trace the ancestry of different species.

Writing in Nature Ecology & Evolution, Ottoni and his colleagues report that five distinct clades of ancient cats rapidly spread outward from relatively small origin points. Over millennia, the clades from Egypt and Southwest Asia began to dominate the world. Mostly this was due to the spread of agriculture. Farming practices that began in the Levant and Western Asia took hold elsewhere, attracting rodents to grain stores. That, in turn, attracted wildcats, who eventually joined farming communities as companions—just as ancient dogs had joined hunting parties in the Paleolithic.
[...]
Arguably, we are at the dawn of cat domestication. Today's wildcats and house cats are still virtually the same. But in 8,000 years, we might have as many breeds of domestic cats as we do dogs. Imagine having a golden retriever-sized cat, with the same sunny disposition. Tomorrow's cat lovers might be living with baby-faced tigers or ultra-fluffy purse cats who look like kittens forever.

Or maybe cats will continue to defy domestication. They could carve out a place as one of the only animals to befriend humans without ever falling completely under our control."___Quite an interesting read.

For the most part, Brexit was yesterday-disguised-as-tomorrow. Often it was explicitly touted as an act of regress, a desire to get back to the way things were when they mostly weren’t. I don’t want to get too lost in the rarefied language of historicalese, but the past was often shit. Horrendous, preventable things happened to people who lacked sufficient protection from the state, and the EU represented a concerted aspiration to make people safer personally as well as politically.

Weirdly, the purpose of much regulation is not to give Richard Littlejohn column ideas, but to reduce the incidence of death, disease and other things that turn out to be boring little concerns of boring little people....

"Flying Machine" Nimbus 2000
Mother-in-law sent well to Bloksbjerg.*

The supra-regional gathering was Heuberg in southwestern Germany, in the same way as Benevento near Naples it was for the Italian witches. The idea Bloksbjerg as witches' meeting held first through the second half of 1600 t., Especially after 1669, when the German university lecturer Johannes Prætorius had attracted attention with a book about witches gesjæft at this location.

The new localization was quickly accepted and was already in early 1700-t. to influence Danish folklore. The first time Bloksbjerg mentioned in Denmark, is a witch process in 1708 by Schelenborg birch things in North Funen. According older Danish tradition had witches other gathering places mentioned in connection with various witch trials: They flew either to Troms church, ie Trondheim's cathedral (referred 1623), Hekkenfeld, i.e. volcano Hekla in Iceland (mentioned in 1696) or home locations like ridge Bjerrelide at Horsens (mentioned in 1618) or Ullemose Zealand (mentioned in 1549).___

Well, it seems I have truly reached late middle age. We decided to get rid of our IKEA corner couch and replace it with two 'senior' recliners. The couch served us well for almost a decade, but it's not the most comfortable couch in the world, and since we moved to the 'small' half of the house, it's just too large.

The new chairs will free up a lot of space and should be a much more comfortable sitting experience. Of course, we will not have anyplace for guests to sit, but who am I kidding? Guests? Me?!

A case of science catching up to science fiction, in this case Larry Niven's melanin pills...

Scientists have developed a drug that mimics sunlight to make the skin tan, with no damaging UV radiation involved.
The drug tricks the skin into producing the brown form of the pigment melanin in tests on skin samples and mice. Evidence suggests it will work even on redheads, who normally just burn in the sun. The team at Massachusetts General Hospital hope their discovery could prevent skin cancer and even slow the appearance of ageing.

UV light makes the skin tan by causing damage. This kicks off a chain of chemical reactions in the skin that ultimately leads to dark melanin - the body's natural sunblock - being made.

The drug tricks the skin into producing the brown form of the pigment melanin in tests on skin samples and mice. Evidence suggests it will work even on redheads, who normally just burn in the sun. The team at Massachusetts General Hospital hope their discovery could prevent skin cancer and even slow the appearance of ageing.

UV light makes the skin tan by causing damage. This kicks off a chain of chemical reactions in the skin that ultimately leads to dark melanin - the body's natural sunblock - being made.

The drug is rubbed into the skin to skip the damage and kick-start the process of making melanin. Dr David Fisher, one of the researchers, told the BBC News website: "It has a potent darkening effect. Under the microscope it's the real melanin, it really is activating the production of pigment in a UV-independent fashion."

It is a markedly different approach to fake tan, which "paints" the skin without the protection from melanin, sun beds, which expose the skin to UV light or pills that claim to boost melanin production but still need UV light.

But the team is not motivated by making a new cosmetic.

Dr Fisher said the lack of progress in skin cancer - the most common type of cancer - was a "very significant frustration".

He added: "Our real goal is a novel strategy for protecting skin from UV radiation and cancer.

"Dark pigment is associated with a lower risk of all forms of skin cancer - that would be really huge."

Tests, detailed in the journal Cell Reports, have shown the melanin produced by the drug was able to block harmful UV rays.

Eventually the scientists want to combine their drug with sun-cream to give maximum protection from solar radiation.

Dr Fisher said everyone should "absolutely" use sun-cream but its weakness was it "keeps you pale".

The way the drug works could also allow a ginger tan, as the genetic mutation that causes red hair and fair skin disrupts the normal process where UV light leads to dark melanin.

It is not yet clear if the drug might have the unintended consequence of affecting the glorious hair colour, but it is thought the hair follicle is too deep in the skin for the drug to reach.

But whether you are ginger, blonde or brunette, the drug is not yet ready for commercial use.

The researchers want to do more safety testing, although so far there has been "no hint of problems".

They will probably want to give it a better name than an SIK-inhibitor too.
Matthew Gass, from the British Association of Dermatologists, said the study was a "novel approach" to preventing skin cancer.

He added: "A lot more research has to be done before we see this sort of technology being used on humans, however, it's certainly an interesting proposition.

"Skin cancer rates in the UK are going through the roof... any research into ways that we can prevent people from developing skin cancer in the first place is to be welcomed."

Stopping UV damage could have an extra boon beyond cancer - slowing the appearance of ageing.
Dr Fisher's final piece of promise for the research is: "Many people would say the obvious and most dramatic sign of ageing is what skin looks like and even casual UV damage over the years causes damage.
"Medically it is very difficult to focus on, but if it is tremendously safe then it could keep skin healthier for longer."

Living in a social democracy, I can say the 'government arrests you' part isn't so common.

This is a nice bit of propaganda, but specious.

You get to keep 100% of what you created in a vacuum. For the rest you contribute back to the society that gave you your advantages. If you resist, society treats you as the greedy, selfish pariah you have declared yourself to be.

It's been a busy week here. Rental machines arrived, much earth was moved, and we now have four 4x2 meter pits in various stages of finish. I'll post more about that later, but there was a very pleasant and unexpected outcome of the work.

Karsten, the man who owns the farm that surrounds us on three sides, was out spraying his fields yesterday, and I stopped him to talk about the huge piles of dirt I'd deposited in the low corner adjoining our property. In the process, I asked him if he'd be willing to lease us some land for the long term. The previous owner had, so I was hopeful.

Long story slightly shorter, we are now leasing an additional 210 sq. m. Of farmland (yellow rectangle on map image). That's not a lot in the scheme of things, but as you can see, it more than doubles our usable land (red sections of map image, and in one contiguous section. He wanted so... more »

He wanted so little for it that I happily gave him five times his asking price, and we both felt like we got an awesome deal! That's me at the new far corner of the land, with the camera at the old front corner.

I can not do anything too permanent on it, but anything that can be built with a floating foundation, and broken back down relatively easily, is fine. So far the list of intended additions includes: lumber storage shed, small observatory, bee hives, large scale earthworm and mealworms production, some chicken tractors, and herb and veg plots. It also means we have room for me to explore aquaculture.

All in all this week feels like a whole slew of achievement unlocked s and maybe even a level up or two.___
