NASA2,285,184Having 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 16:30:008339

Dylan Cuffy21,984#WhatLiesAground To begin this morning's run, a replacement version of Fab 2—where everyone's a winner and the +1's don't matter. As I explained in yesterday's posts, a certain site known as AndroidDissected recently rebranded into +TechDissected, shuttering their old G+ page in the process. Thanks to some detective work with Google search, I went forward to patch things up.And now you know, folks! Stay tuned in the next few days for the "Fab 500 Actives", generated with +Circloscope.(For +Amig Von Hallen, CS&M owner +AyJay Schibig, and circle guru +Stephan Klimmeck)----Original version:https://plus.google.com/103283675665371670119/posts/Ff3BpgYZopK2015-03-07 14:40:1150011911

Dylan Cuffy21,408#WhatLiesAground Welcome, one and all, to the final edition of Fab 2—where everyone's a winner and the +1's don't matter. Luckily enough, no account of significance has gone away.As I continue wrapping things up in my old quarters, say hello to our last 25 (all of whom I found on G+ comments and posts alike). This list took me less than 40 minutes to compile (with the help of +All my +), and does not include members in the just launched follow-up, Fab 3.• +Manish Singh-SEO, +Sachin Saroj, and +Rainbow Craft™ 2015 (who requested inclusion, last we met at CS&M)• Four furry artists: +Marquis The Eevee (whose work is reminiscent of "RoareyRaccoon's"), +Scarlett Wolf  (via +Artix the Inheritor at Furry+), +ApolloWolf Productions (via +Harold Gardner), and +Haz Fox (who just approached 100 followers lately; via a Furry+ post of his)• +Radim Kacer (from the Czech Republic; via G+'s personalised circle recommendations)• +Ross University School of Medicine (in Portsmouth, Dominica)• +Johannes Kleiber (from Germany; via the Hot stream)• As seen on the Explore stream: +Sherrie Lacritz (relative newcomer from South Carolina), +Andrésy 2015-02-25 07:46:3950011720
Dylan Cuffy21,158#WhatLiesAground And without further ado...Welcome to another edition of Fab 2, where everyone's a winner and the +1's don't matter. As two accounts (Patsy Priebe and Hanna Lynn) went away since my last update, I've had to bring in +Sean Cushing​ and +Crimson Star​ to keep things fresh. Again, consider yourselves welcome!As I mentioned yesterday in another post, our last 25 members are on the way—and I only have ten days to choose carefully and cautiously. In addition to the ones I mentioned above, say hello to:• The +Circloscope​ team (whose tool I'll use to generate a fresh new list of active Fab members next month)• +Gernot Glaeser​ and +蕭文男​/Xiāo Wénnán (from my recent follower queue)• +Isabel Merchan​ (via +Brian Gill​)• +Gregory Colbert​ (no relation to elephant champion Stephen) and +VICENTE PEÑARROJA APARICI​ (via G+'s personalised circle suggestions)• +David Marx​ (no relation to '80s hitmaker Richard), +Christian Rogers​, +PHOTOMENTARY by Nikon​, +Lena Levin​, and +Paul L​ (via the Hot stream)• +Jørgen Jensen​ and +2015-02-18 06:36:25475131421
Dylan Cuffy20,967#WhatLiesAground And welcome to another edition of Fab 2, where everyone's a winner and the +1's don't matter. This new version arrives over one month later than estimated; blame it on keeping up with +Daniel Stock's team back last holiday season.Alas, giving you a full list of whom I've circled in the interim will take me hours to compile. So as it stands, special greetings go out to these select newcomers:• +Larry Fournillier (out of Trinidad and Tobago)• +Anthony Deane (out of Barbados)• +Jerry Blank (my last circle addition of 2014)• +R.G Kirk (follower #20,000 of mine de facto; Australian poet)• Tsū network members +Sylvia Sotuyo (CC0 supporter, just like me), +Phil Aston (Cornwall photographer), +Adriana Popovici (recommended by +Daniel Mihai Popescu), and +Linda Lee Williams (fellow author)• +Sarah Draws cartoons and +Leah Winchell (thanks for your takes on Samson Dixwell!)• +Hannah Heath (thanks for the guide to character development!)• +Author and Illustrator Rosemary Wells (creator of Timothy Goes to School and Max & Ruby; sending you a licensing request e-mail anytime soon)• +Russell Gould2015-02-07 21:39:4645051712

Well. not quite. Lasers that could destroy space junk from 100 km away are proposed for the ISS. Let's file this in the "not likely" category for now.

Looks like Raditaz is about ready to resurface.

As either CUR or CUR8, at least according to this survey I just received from them. I really liked Raditaz as a streaming music service.

Almost at 49,000. One of these days it might even hit 50k

That would be the number of people who've circled me here on Google+. Don't let anyone tell you that this is a dead platform. It's so much more lively than is say Twitter. Great people. Great sharing. Lots of discussion. Sure there are those who comment for the sake of commenting but without adding anything meaningful but in my experience at least they are few and far between.

I realize most of the nearly 49 k may be meaningless follower accounts. I have no effective way of checking. 

In short, I love Google+ and have made it my go-to platform from the day it became available to me.

The state of the world's electronics waste recycling.

Let's just say it's not good and it's getting worse. Where I live, here in Vancouver, BC, e-waste recycling is strictly controlled, funded in part by point-of-sale levies on electronic goods. 

This is a pretty depressing story. On numerous fronts.

Tanium: the next big thing in cybersecurity.

Only it's here already and it has big-name investors. Meet the father-son team who have turned corporate cybersecurity on its ear. Fascinating story. Forget the big server-client approach. This technology uses a peer-to-peer approach that dramatically speeds up a security analysis for a major corporation. 

This story is running in the May 4 edition of Forbes.

Run into an odd problem here ... the front panel 2.4/5 GHz LEDs are not lighting up (and the unit is not broadcasting its SSIDs). Anyone seen this problem? Have tried firmware rollbacks, updates etc. but to no avail.

LAUSD iPad deal gets even closer scrutiny, this time from the SEC.

You thought yesterday's piece looked bad for the LA school district. Well, today we learn that the SEC is checking whether officials in that notorious deal with Apple actually followed federal rules for dealing with bond funds. For now it is an informal inquiry but it can't look good for the LAUSD.

Find my (Android) phone: from the browser.

Just demoed this to my ICT12 students. Update the Google app from the App Store and then you'll be able to enter "find my phone" from any signed in Chrome session. 

We’ve all been there — you’ve searched under your car seat, tossed around the sofa cushions and you still can’t find your phone. If you know where your computer is, you can now ask Google to find your Android phone from your desktop. If the pesky phone is hiding nearby, Google can ring it for you — or you can see it on the map if you, say, forgot it at the bar. Just make sure you’ve got the latest version of the Google app!___Find my (Android) phone: from the browser.

Just demoed this to my ICT12 students. Update the Google app from the App Store and then you'll be able to enter "find my phone" from any signed in Chrome session.

Another wonderful explanation from Brian Koberlein: the effective size of photons.

That's About the Size of It

Large radio telescopes are not solid dishes, but rather an open mesh. This is largely done to save on weight, since the dish doesn’t need to be solid to reflect radio waves. You see a similar thing on a microwave, where the door is covered with an open mesh so you can watch what’s cooking. The mesh blocks microwaves from reaching you, but not visible light. But how is that possible? Aren’t photons supposed to be point particles? Radio, microwaves are light, so how does a mesh prevent their photons from passing through it?

The short answer is it’s complicated. Although photons are often referred to as particles, they aren’t particles in the traditional sense. They are light quanta, which have both particle and wave properties. Depending on the situation, sometimes the particle aspect is useful, and sometimes the wave aspect is. While photons don’t have a physical diameter, and can be treated as point particles, their quantum behavior gives them a probabilistic size. As a photon gets closer to another object, the chance of it interacting becomes greater. This is often represented as a cross section given in terms of area.

You could say the cross sectional area represents the “size” of a photon, but the problem with this is that a photon’s cross section varies depending on what it is interacting with. Photons interact pretty strongly with electrons, and have a relatively large cross section, but with neutrons the interaction is smaller. Under this definition there is no absolute “size” to a photon. The cross section also depends upon the energy of the photon and things like its polarization. There are also different cross sections for absorption vs scattering.

Despite all this complexity, there is a basic way to talk about the effective “size” of a photon, and that is through it’s wavelength. Very roughly, the interaction range of a photon scales with its wavelength, so light of longer wavelength is more likely to interact with a conductive material than light of a shorter wavelength. In this way you could say the “size” of photon is basically the width of its wavelength. The  wavelength of green light is about 500 nanometers, or two thousandths of a millimeter. The typical wavelength of a microwave oven is about 12 centimeters, which is larger than a baseball.

It’s a bit odd to think of a microwave photon as being larger than a baseball, but it is a simple way to explain how mesh reflectors work. The “size” of microwave and radio wave photons is simply too large to fit through the mesh, and so are reflected. Visible light is much smaller, so it easily passes through the mesh. It’s important not to take this model too literally, but it’s good enough for rough estimates.

And that’s about the size of it.___Another wonderful explanation from Brian Koberlein: the effective size of photons.

Blue-blocking plastic and glasses to combat eyestrain in IT pros.

* Eyestrain solutions for IT pros

Before I start let me begin by stating the following disclaimer: I am not trying to provide medical advice in this article but simply expressing my own personal opinions and experience. So please take everything I say here "as is" with no warranties or guarantees.

Having authored or been series editor for more than fifty books <http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008106531> and having also written hundreds and hundreds of articles <http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008108984> for IT pros over the last 20 years, my eyes have suffered as a result. For example, until recently I've had to turn the brightness of my widescreen monitor way down to the lowest brightness setting available, otherwise my eyes get sore and tired pretty quickly. My eyestrain was compounded considerably when I began using a tablet two years ago, and I almost never use my smartphone as my eyes tend to go out of focus from trying to read stuff on its tiny screen. I went to see an eye specialist and she ran a bunch of tests and said, "You've got eyestrain--try not to use your computer too much." Gee, thanks a lot.

I was beginning to get annoyed by my limitation, so a few months ago I began looking for a solution. One of the things I quickly stumbled upon was that my problem might be caused by too much blue light coming from the digital screens I constantly look at:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008112125

So I decided to see whether blocking out the blue light from my monitor and other screens could help relieve the eyestrain I've been experiencing. A little research let me to Uvex, a brand of safety glasses produced by Honeywell:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008116156

I then found this brochure (PDF, 2.3 MB) describing the different types of Uvex lenses and what they are used for:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008118375

From this bruchure I decided that the type of lens I needed was called Uvex SCT-Orange. This tint is designed for people like dentists who work with UV lamps for curing materials, and it absorbs greater than 99.9% of UVA and UVB radiation. Take a look if you're interested at the spectral transmission graph for SCT-Orange on page 13 of the brochure which shows transmission quickly dropping to zero at around 550 nanometer wavelength.

So I went onto Amazon and ordered this product which is shown in Figure 1 below:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008120828

Figure 1: Uvex S0360X Ultra-spec 2000 Safety Eyewear, Orange Frame, SCT-Orange UV Extreme Anti-Fog Lens
<http://cdn.techgenix.com/media/upls/WSnews%20%23166%20-%20Figure%201.JPG>

The reason I purchased wraparound goggles like this is because I wear extended focal length prescription reading glasses when I work on a computer so I needed blueblocking lenses that I could wear over top my reading glasses. To my delight, my eyes immediately felt much more relaxed when I wore these goggles, but unfortunately they fit too tight on the sides of my head making them uncomfortable for wearing them for long periods of time, and they also fit poorly over my prescription glasses.

So my next attempt at a solution was to try and track down a supplier that produced blueblocking tinted plastic in large sheet form which I could use to cover the surface of my monitors. This turned out to be more challenging than I expected, but eventually I stumbled across Amber Plexiglas 2422, a product by a company named ePlastics:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008124484

This amber-tinted plastic looked like it might block UV light but the specs on the website weren't clear concerning this, so I did some more searching around and came across this blog post on PlasticGenius that shows the transmission graph for the Amber Plexiglas 2422 product:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008126812

So I contacted ePlastics and ordered a sheet large enough to cover the widescreen monitor I use for most of my writing work. The company pre-cut the plastic for me according to the measurements I sent them, and they also sent me the remnants so I could use them as well. Figure 2 below shows a sheet of Plexiglas 2422 partially on top of the cover of one of my books, and you can see that the blue cover of the book appears almost black when viewed through the plastic.

Figure 2: 0.125" x 24" x 48" Amber Plexiglas 2422 Acrylic Sheet Paper Masked from ePlastics.com
<http://cdn.techgenix.com/media/upls/WSnews%20%23166%20-%20Figure%202.JPG>

I attached the plastic sheet to the top of my monitor using an advanced adhesive material (duct tape) and positioned my two Logitech speakers under the side edges of the plastic to tilt it slightly away from vertical (about 70 degrees) to minimize the reflections I was seeing from the window behind my desk. Once I had done this I discovered that my monitor, with its brightness turned down all the way, was too dark to view properly. So I changed the monitor from Custom to Standard setting. In the past the Standard monitor setting was far too bright for me to look at for more than a few seconds, but with the blueblocking plastic over it I found I could now use the Standard setting for hours without any feeling of eyestrain--problem solved!

Well, almost. I didn't want to have to tape amber plastic over my tablet or smartphone, so I went back to Amazon and found one more product to order:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008132359

These goggles, which are shown in Figure 3, are ones that I've found to be far more comfortable than the wraparound ones shown earlier in Figure 1. The limitation of course is that they don't fit over prescription glasses, but I only need my prescription glasses when I'm working on a computer. I don't need glasses when I use a table or smartphone as the accommodation of my eyes is still good i.e. I can still focus clearly on objects that are about 30 cm (1 foot) away from my eyes.  

Figure 3: Uvex S1933X Skyper Safety Eyewear, Black Frame, SCT-Orange UV Extreme Anti-Fog Lens
<http://cdn.techgenix.com/media/upls/WSnews%20%23166%20-%20Figure%203.JPG>

I've also found the glasses shown in Figure 3 to be useful to wear when I'm sitting outside as the make the world brighter yet reduce feelings of eyestrain. There's also some evidence that wearing glasses like these before bedtime can lead to better sleep:

http://www.wservernews.com/go/1429008135015

So basically, I think I've solved my eyestrain problem so I can go on writing books and churning out articles (and this newsletter) until some other part of my body fails (lol). There are a few caveats though. First, if you use my solution you'll discover of course that the colors appear wonky on your monitor. For example, you can't use yellow highlighting in Word documents as the highlighting won't be visible. And obviously you won't be able to do any graphic artwork or photo processing, which is why I suggest you only attach the sheet plastic to the top of your monitor so you can lift the bottom and flip it backwards if you need to do any work that requires color accuracy.

Second and most important, don't wear blueblocking glasses or goggles while driving a vehicle as it can change the colors of traffic lights and signs, especially at night, which can result in an accident.

And remember, I am not trying to provide medical advice here but merely expressing my personal opinion and sharing my own experience using these products. So everything I've said here is presented to you "as is" with no warranties or guarantees. And feel free to send me your comments concerning any of this to wsn@mtit.com

P.S. Based on this recent report from TreeHugger, I wonder if the reason I' m nearsighted is because I spent too much of my childhood reading astronomy books and playing chess instead of playing football outside in the sun:
