Hubble Space Telescope7,887,550A 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.

Microsoft plans to make Steam - the world's largest PC gaming platform, "progressively worse and more broken."

"Slowly, over the next five years, they will force-patch Windows 10 to make Steam progressively worse and more broken. They'll never completely break it, but will continue to break it until, in five years, people are so fed up that Steam is buggy that the Windows Store seem like an ideal alternative. That's exactly what they did to their previous competitors in other areas. Now they're doing it to Steam. It's only just starting to become visible. Microsoft might not be competent enough to succeed with their plan but they are certainly trying," Sweeney said in an interview with Edge Magazine (via NeoGAF).

We’ve rated Sanders True, Mostly True and Half-True more than twice as often as we rated him False or Mostly False. Perhaps most remarkably, none of the statements we checked earned a Pants on Fire. Checking the usual suspects, we believe Sanders has the most fact-checks without a Pants on Fire rating of anyone measured on the Truth-O-Meter.

Universe2Go
Astronomical Augmented Reality for $99

Well, this seems pretty interesting. I've long had problems getting my mount aligned - in part because I do not know what I am aligning on. Perhaps this would help. Even if not, the guided lessons leading to a quiz mode seems pretty cool - would surely make sight recognition easier over time...

I've used apps on the phone "...which show a view of the night sky from your vantage point. If you hold the phone's screen up to the sky, it will identify what you see (mostly).

That concept has been taken a few steps farther with Universe2Go ($99), which is a set of augmented reality goggles and a smartphone app to help you find, identify and learn about objects in the night sky.

Universe2Go
Astronomical Augmented Reality for $99

Well, this seems pretty interesting. I've long had problems getting my mount aligned - in part because I do not know what I am aligning on. Perhaps this would help. Even if not, the guided lessons leading to a quiz mode seems pretty cool - would surely make sight recognition easier over time...

I've used apps on the phone "...which show a view of the night sky from your vantage point. If you hold the phone's screen up to the sky, it will identify what you see (mostly).

That concept has been taken a few steps farther with Universe2Go ($99), which is a set of augmented reality goggles and a smartphone app to help you find, identify and learn about objects in the night sky.
You place your phone in the top of the goggles, and you can see the screen superimposed over the actual sky, which is what "augmented reality" means -- digital information combined with a real view of the night sky.

It's pretty cool that you can see the sky through the Universe2Go goggles and have the astronomical information in your field of view at the same time.

The phone's screen is reflected into your field of view, and there are settings to help it blend in with the amount of light in your viewing area. I set mine for city lights and had no problem making out all the on-screen information.

When you launch the app and place your phone in the goggles, you'll be asked to do a star calibration, which consists of finding a bright star in the sky and waiting a second or two for the app to identify it. Once you find three stars, the app's map of the sky will match what you can see outside.

As you move your head around, whatever is in the center of your field of vision is highlighted.

If you stop on the moon, you'll see it on the screen. If you hold your gaze on the moon for a few seconds, you'll see the moon get bigger, and the app will begin a short narration about the moon.

The Universe2Go app features more than three hours of audio narration about the moon, planets, stars and constellations as well as other deep-space objects.

There is a catch, though: Because your phone is closed up inside the goggles, you can't use regular headphones or really even hear your phone's speaker.

I used a small bluetooth speaker to hear the audio, which worked out well because I could carry it with me as I moved around my backyard to see different parts of the sky. Bluetooth headphones would also work.

The app has several modes to keep things interesting.

You'll start out in beginner mode. You'll see planets, the moon and constellations.

Discovery mode lets you dive deeper into the stars in the constellations, with data about the distance and size in relation to our sun.

Mythology mode tells you stories about the constellations linked with the stars by the ancient Greeks.

Deep-Sky mode brings far-away galaxies, nebulae and star clusters to your view, and 3D mode attempts to show you the relative distances between the objects in the sky.

When you get really familiar with the sky, you can go to Quiz mode, which will ask you to locate objects in the sky.

You can search for objects from lists and sub-menus of hundreds of thousands of celestial objects, including satellites. Once you pick an object to locate, you'll be directed on the screen until you're looking in its direction.

Serious astronomers can engage Expert mode and switch on or off entire classes of stars, planets, deep-sky objects and more.

A few weeks ago we were missing one of the hens in the evening count. After she failed to reappear I just wrote her off as a loss to a local predator. Well, just a few minutes ago I went out back only to find her and four day-old chicks scratching in the yard. Here they are.

We've hatched more than 200 chicks, but these are our first 'natural' births - and we had no idea they were coming :D

Oh, and the palliative treatment?

The Reality of the US Presidential Candidates
They are all of the same political bent. Well, except Bernie.
When we argue the difference between left and right, we are arguing the difference between two slightly different shades of the Authoritarian Right. This shows up on the political compass for the 2016 US Presidential Race.

You will notice there is one candidate who isn't in the pack rushing to the Right. Bernie.

So, I will leave you to argue the difference between royal and navy blue. I'm voting for Bernie.

And then there is Bernie....

Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally syndicated radio show the Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”___And then there is Bernie....

A Wheat Grass Trellis
My third ever project, but the first involving real woodworking.
This project is one-half utility, one-half woodworking exercise. I’ve never designed a thing from scratch like this, never cut half laps, never nibbled a joint on the tablesaw, never done compound cuts as on the cross members, never laid out a thing and needed it to fit properly…lots of firsts here.

Got the inspiration for from this video: (YouTube) https://goo.gl/1Jt8fN

Some of #tedscousins  have been counting the minutes since the last #tedscousin  post, and have the sads since it has been so long. Do not be alarmed though, things are still ticking over here and it's time for more cousins.

If you see any you think I (or we :D) might like, do, please, give me a mention.  

Puts me in mind of some Jethro Tull -  Back to the Family, to be precise.

Signal boost for one of my favourite authors. I commend Lisa's work to you. Highly.

One last plea/push until midnight Pacific time TONIGHT (11/27)

In honor of 'black Friday' my fae changeling novel THE BETWEEN is free on Amazon^ until midnight Pacific time TONIGHT (11/27).

If you have an Amazon account, I would very much appreciate it if would you consider downloading the book while it's free. Even if you don't want to read it, Amazon ranks books depending on downloads, and it will help the viability of all my novels, which increases the likelihood of my work being found.

http://www.amazon.com/Between-Changelings-Choice-Book-ebook/dp/B006UVP724


THE BETWEEN: High school senior, Lydia Hawthorne, is less than grateful when Oberon has her snatched from the mortal world and she finds out she's actually Fae. And not just any Fae, but a trueborn with enough inherent magic to tip the balance between Oberon and Titania's warring Bright and Shadow courts.

But that's their game and she doesn't want to play by their rules. Together with Clive Barrow, a Bright Court Fae with embarrassing family ties to the mortal world, Lydia fights to regain her old life, fueling her magic with the very human power of love and loss, challenging the essential nature of Faerie itself.

-

I can promise you, no love triangles or sparkly anythings, and despite Oberon's and Titania's beliefs to the contrary, this is no 'chosen one' narrative. If you like Lydia's story, you can continue with the sequel TIME AND TITHE. However, both books function as stand-alone, complete stories.

This novel is appropriate for young adult and adult readers.

I would appreciate it if you would share this to your circles/followers/friends/enemies/frenemies/etc.
^if epub is your format of choice, let me know and I will send you the appropriate version.___Signal boost for one of my favourite authors. I commend Lisa's work to you. Highly.

Published by +#HermitStudio 

Wait no more. The NovoPulp Anthology - Volume 3 is NOW ON SALE! It is available in ePUB, Kindle, and Print, so go, go, go! 

"The stories in this volume range from the deeply thought-provoking (such as Death of a Universe by +Lacerant Plainer), through the heart-breaking (Perfect by +Chris Dangerfield), through classic hard-sf (such as Salvage by +Mike Kobernus and Nothing At All by +H David Blalock), to the just plain fun (Star-Crossed Lawlessness by William J. Jackson)." - Introduction by David R. Grigg

I want to say a big thank you to to +David Grigg for stepping up and taking over the typesetting, cover layout, and editor-in-chief role this year. I also want to thank +Micha Fire for your continual hard work as XO at the center of all our contributors, +MrsA Wiggins for stepping up as a proofreader, and +Charles Strebor for helping out with the social media end of things, proofreading, and art. You guys really made this anthology what it is today along with the authors and editors who contributed to this volume. I can't thank you all enough for your hard work and dedication to making NovoPulp the best it can be.

This year I believe we have collectively stepped it up a level and created something a little special.

To celebrate the launch of our third anthology we are making the eBook of the NovoPulp Anthology - Volume 2 free this week only.
