Hubble Space Telescope6,572,065A 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.

I can demand the rain stop falling or the tide arrive. They will not obey.

Your demands may not help you in your lifetime, but they will make improvement easier for those who follow.

Rather than trying to say "why bother" I am highlighting the silver lining contained within an uncomfortable truth. Change comes slowly and that really sucks.

“Politics is a strong and slow boring of hard boards. It takes both passion and perspective. Certainly all historical experience confirms the truth - that man would not have attained the possible unless time and again he had reached out for the impossible. But to do that a man must be a leader, and not only a leader but a hero as well, in a very sober sense of the word. And even those who are neither leaders nor heroes must arm themselves with that steadfastness of heart which can brave even the crumbling of all hopes. This is necessary right now, or else men will not be able to attain even that which is possible today.”

We only have to look back a few decades to see how much things have improved in the world. We still have a long way to go until all of humanity reaches enlightenment, if ever it will. There will always be young souls that need to learn, I guess.

Take pride in the fact that you are fighting a good fight. Take solace in the fact that, although you may not see Nirvana, you are clearing the path to it for others.

A magic wand would be so much easier.

Apparently these words of mine were intended to tell someone "not to express themselves" and to "shame them" into silence. I've read them a few times now. I just don't see it.

[Insert Human Quality] must change NOW! Makes for great slogans, but people do not really do revolutionary change - even when it appears they have. Instead, I feel, human change is more tectonic than revolutionary: stresses build up over extreme time frames and when things finally break free, it gives the illusion of sudden cause and effect.

Once the tension breaks, things mostly return to the way things were before - with some new peaks and valleys. California still hasn't fallen into the Pacific, to abuse the analogy further. Almost immediately,  the tensions start building again and so begins the next 'revolution'.

Silly monkeys.___

Hurricane Katrina and Bernie Sanders: From Neoliberal Disaster to 'Political Revolution'

Hurricane Katrina and Bernie Sanders: From Neoliberal Disaster to 'Political Revolution'

...
[T]he attack on public investment, and the promotion of an unregulated private sector, contributed to the greatest disaster in U.S. history. Calls to fix the levees and invest in infrastructure prior to Katrina went unheeded, as did warnings from scientists that climate change would lead to larger storms, and that the destruction of Louisiana wetlands had weakened the region’s natural defenses.

What was needed was precisely what powerful interests would not allow: adequate public investment in the levee system; state regulations to protect our wetlands; and a public commitment to housing, healthcare, education, and the economy that would have left more of us prepared for a disaster in the first place.*
...
Sanders is the only candidate running for President who has consistently fought for the kinds of policies that New Orleans so desperately required prior to and during Katrina, and that it needs now more than ever.

As more Americans have found out who Bernie Sanders is, and have begun to understand what he stands for, turnouts at his rallies have soared along with his poll numbers. His campaign platform is nothing short of a political revolution, and include the very kinds of policies that New Orleans so desperately needs: including a truly universal healthcare, a minimum wage of $15, expanded rights for workers, free tuition at public universities, and reducing the income gap between the rich and poor.  He is, quite literally, the only candidate talking seriously about the issues that matter the most to most New Orleanians. 

As we in the city and others elsewhere commemorate the anniversary of Katrina, it would be good to consider that Bernie Sanders is the only presidential aspirant calling for policies that would have prevented that disaster from occurring on anywhere near the scale on which it did, would have made recovery from it more coherent, rational, just, and inclusive.

#Sanders2016  

The good news is that the 2016 presidential race has become a “mad-as-hell” campaign. The better news is: Bernie Sanders will win it.

Campaigns of the mad-as-hell type are rare in our American politics.

The past five presidential election seasons—stretching from Bill Clinton’s victory’s in 1996 re-election campaign to Barack Obama’s re-election in 2012—were business-as-usual affairs, leading to relatively modest tacks to the left or the right. Such election seasons change the parties’ priorities and the themes that dominate our political discussions in fundamental ways. The electorate decides, as the protagonist of the 1976 movie Network did, that it isn’t going to take this anymore.

Mad-as-hell election seasons aren’t defined by the party nominees, who are typically centrists like Bush, Clinton, Nixon and Humphrey. They’re defined by the surge of reformist energy that they both channel and generate. Such elections overflow the boundaries of our normal politics and reshape the priorities of the major parties over the course of several elections.

The most obvious evidence that this is a mad-as-hell election season comes from the GOP, notably from Donald Trump—but also from several second-tier candidates, including Ted Cruz, Scott Walker and Ben Carson. Some of their themes—like their attacks on reproductive rights and LGBT equality, and their strident defense of “Christian America”—have been consistent parts of the Republican playbook for decades.

But Trump’s revival of anti-immigrant policy proposals has been the most potent force on the Right—and the most surprising. A party whose future depends on attracting more minorities is flirting with a self-styled “truth-teller” whose rhetoric and policy proposals are incoherent nonsense—and so deeply offensive to Hispanics that his net favorability rating among them is negative 51 points (a rating that will likely only continue to slide after Trump’s recent ejection of Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from a press conference).

For that reason, Trump’s campaign is more likely the last stand of the GOP’s most fervent base than a sign of its strength. He will go on drawing huge crowds because “people are super tired of politicians,” as Howard Stern put it recently, and because an anti-establishment business leader with charisma will always charm a certain segment of the electorate. One who aggressively pushes their hot buttons will thrive, at least for a time. 

But it’s Bernie Sanders, not Donald Trump, who represents the future, and it’s Sanders who is channeling the pent-up, reformist energy that will reshape our politics over the coming decades. He is, as David Shribman wrote recently for RealClearPolitics, “a man on fire,” and his message is perfectly in tune with the times. “This is where a good portion of the Democratic Party is today—proud of electing Barack Obama but disappointed he didn’t go far enough,” Shribman writes, “skeptical of trade pacts, fired with revulsion about police excesses, convinced economic mobility is more a phrase from the American past than a touchstone of the American future, wary of half-steps on the economy and ritualistic bows to progressive issues.”

In other words: mad as hell Not attracting the haters of the nation, but attracting those who have genuine concern for the country's trajectory in terms of its citizens, human rights, potential mobility and opportunities, the economy, and of course, the end of corporate welfare*.

If Trump’s candidacy symbolizes the dead, bitter end of our long march to the right, the Sanders campaign symbolizes a turning point in our politics and a fundamental shift in our priorities. Moving inequality and injustice to the center of our political discourse will make Sanders the winner of this mad-as-hell presidential campaign—no matter which candidate wins the White House next November.

One party is about knowledge and information.
The other wears wilful ignorance as a badge of honour.

Why does the GOP not understand that, well, people know things? That facts are checkable. That opinion is not superior to data and analysis? That belief is not sufficient reason for anything.  That fact trumps ideology.

Democrats: Not a party of thinking people, but the party for thinking people.

At least as long as we are stuck with just two.

Republicans trying to sell themselves as progressives. Of course they have to go back to Lincoln and ignore the party realignment of the '60s and '70s to try to create the illusion.

And then they post this. (Since deleted.) Um, history much?

I'm curious - does anyone here remember the band Clam Chowder? They were an Markland / SCA / Fandom group quite popular on the cassette copy circuit. They filked, covered and wrote all the stuff they recorded and some of it was really quite good.

I managed to find almost all of their music on AudioGalaxy back in 2000, but I lost it again.

+Julia Robertson, one for your network perhaps?

This is my best friend, his name is Jake/Jacob Cash. He was in a serious motorcycle accident. He's become permanently disabled from his injuries. He is making slow progress to improve his mobility, but he still hasn't overcome his problems communicating verbally. It frustrates him and myself because his injuries have seemed to seperate him from those he considers friends/loved ones. If anyone has any resources that can benefit him I'd appreciate any consideration. I'm not asking for money. We need specialists that may be able to offer him advanced treatment. I've heard that stem cell therapy has done wonders for his condition. I ask you all for any resources, that could make him more connected to those he loves including tablets or phones that could make it a little easier for him to communicate (for the time being). He has three children, which would love to see their dad rise from his disability. Any doctors or specialists that might be willing to offer experimental treatments for traumatic brain injury would be a godsend. If that isn't possible, perhaps donations to pursue advanced treatment. I pledge my time, any any extra money that he might need to help him out. Can you help me find anyone that can help? Please. I believe in him and his recovery.___Signal boost.

There's a lot of ways to die
Yes, and some already dead that walk beside me

Well, it's the hurt I hide
that fuels the fires inside me

Will I always feel this way

Not that this is surprising, but I'm glad they're releasing studies like this.

Where do atheists get their morals? Simple, the Golden Rule is astonishingly easy to follow. It does not require faith, or supernatural belief, or the idea that you must be good or you're punished for eternity. It's amazing how well it works, and it seems to make for better human beings and better generations of children.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Angus King (I-Maine) have re-introduced what they call the “21st Century Glass-Steagall Act,” a bill that would reintroduce the separation between commercial and investment banking.

The bill is aimed at “reduc[ing] risks to the financial system by limiting banks’ ability to engage in certain risky activities and limiting conflicts of interest, to reinstate certain Glass-Steagall Act protections that were repealed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and for other purposes.”

The bill would prohibit institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

The bill is aimed at “reduc[ing] risks to the financial system by limiting banks’ ability to engage in certain risky activities and limiting conflicts of interest, to reinstate certain Glass-Steagall Act protections that were repealed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and for other purposes.”

The bill would prohibit institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) from being or becoming affiliated with, or having a common ownership or control with, any insurance company, securities entity or swaps entity. The institutions would also be prohibited from engaging in any activity that would cause it to qualify as an insurance company, securities entity or swaps entity.

Individuals who are officers, directors, partners or employees of any insurance company, securities entity or swaps entity would be prohibited from simultaneously serving as officers, directors, employee or any other institutions-affiliated party of any insured depository institution.

The bill also amends certain definitions such as “business of banking” to prevent national banks from engaging in risky activities and will aim to address “Too Big to Fail.”

“Despite the progress we’ve made since 2008, the biggest banks continue to threaten our economy,” Warren said. “The biggest banks are collectively much larger than they were before the crisis, and they continue to engage in dangerous practices that could once again crash our economy.”

McCain does not think the bill would end “Too Big to Fail” but may restore confidence in the financial system.

“Since core provisions of the Glass-Steagall Act were repealed in 1999, shattering the wall dividing commercial banks and investment banks, a culture of dangerous greed and excessive risk-taking has taken root in the banking world,” McCain said. “Big Wall Street institutions should be free to engage in transactions with significant risk, but not with federally insured deposits. If enacted, the 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act would not end Too-Big-to-Fail, but it would rebuild the wall between commercial and investment banking that was in place for over 60 years, restore confidence in the system, and reduce risk for the American taxpayer.”

The Glass-Steagall Act was passed in 1933 as a response to the Great Depression and was repealed in 1999 by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act during the Clinton Administration.

...

The county, which includes Atlanta, has a heavily African American voting population and leans progressive, voting overwhelmingly for President Obama in 2008 and 2012. As detailed in the new settlement, county elections officials misinformed the precincts of who was coming to vote and when, failed to provide absentee ballots to voters who requested them, and failed to put voters who registered on time on the rolls, among other violations. The head of Fulton County’s elections office was fired last year, which she credits to her refusal to cover up the improper purging of voters in 2012.

“We’re happy that the [settlement] is over and we’re able to move forward,” Erica Pines with the Fulton County Democratic Party told ThinkProgress. “We want our voters, many of whom are minorities who’ve experienced a history of disenfranchisement, to remain confident in our elections system and not fear there’s going to be some type of issue when they go to the polls.”
Yet the problems facing voters of color in Georgia are not confined to Fulton County. When neighboring DeKalb County, another stronghold of African American Democrats, opened an early voting location in a popular mall, Georgia State Senator Fran Millar (R) publicly lamented that “this location is dominated by African American shoppers and it is near several large African American mega churches.” He later added, “I would prefer more educated voters than a greater increase in the number of voters.”
Last year, during a tight race for an open Senate seat, more than 40,000 newly registered voters — most of them young, low-income, and black — vanished from the rolls. When voting rights groups sued the state and several counties to force them to process the registrations, the Secretary of State instead accused the groups of committing voter fraud — a move the NAACP and other civil rights groups saw as an attempt to scare them away from future voter registration drives.

A subsequent investigation found just 25 confirmed forgeries out of more than 85,000 forms—a fraud rate of about 3/100ths of 1 percent.

Walmart is going to stop selling AR-15s and other assault rifles
Walmart is taking assault rifles off its US shelves, in a move it says is motivated by diminished consumer demand rather than politics.

The world’s largest retailer will stop stocking AR-15s and other modern sporting rifles (MSRs) as it resets its stores with fall merchandise, a Walmart spokesman confirmed to Quartz on Wednesday. The company will replace the rifles (carried in less than a third of its stores) with shotguns and other hunting weapons.

The move comes in the midst of a national gun debate fueled by high-profile shootings involving the weapon, including Adam Lanza in the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, James Holmes in the Colorado theater shooting, and the Los Angeles Airport shooting where a Transportation Security Administration officer was shot and killed.

Walmart is going to stop selling AR-15s and other assault rifles
Walmart is taking assault rifles off its US shelves, in a move it says is motivated by diminished consumer demand rather than politics.

The world’s largest retailer will stop stocking AR-15s and other modern sporting rifles (MSRs) as it resets its stores with fall merchandise, a Walmart spokesman confirmed to Quartz on Wednesday. The company will replace the rifles (carried in less than a third of its stores) with shotguns and other hunting weapons.

The move comes in the midst of a national gun debate fueled by high-profile shootings involving the weapon, including Adam Lanza in the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, James Holmes in the Colorado theater shooting, and the Los Angeles Airport shooting where a Transportation Security Administration officer was shot and killed.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation says modern sporting rifles are among the most popular firearms being sold in America.

As the largest seller of guns and ammunition in the US, Walmart is a mainstay in America’s national gun debate. The company line has long been that it will sell guns as long as customers are buying them and that its focus is on hunters and sportsmen. But over the last 15 years, it has outlawed the sales of handguns and high-capacity magazines, and scaled back sales in certain parts of the country.

In July, Walmart won a federal appeals court decision that ruled the retailer could block a shareholder vote calling on Walmart executives to review the company’s decision to sell assault rifles and other products that could potentially harm its reputation, which was pushed by New York’s Trinity Wall Street Church, one of its shareholders.

Walmart said the decision was not politically-driven. Even though “this happens to get more attention because of what the product is, the decision was completely based on what customers are buying and what they want,” Walmart spokesman Kory Lundberg said.

He said the company been phasing out AR-15s and other modern sporting rifles “for a while and within the next week or two, MSRs shouldn’t be in any more stores.”___
