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 16:30:008308

That whole BernieBros thing? All the sexist attacks I've seen on Clinton supporters have been from Trump supporters, not Sanders supporters. I don't doubt that there are sexist asshole Sanders supporters, but I haven't run into any yet. Meanwhile, here's how female Sanders supporters are treated by the Internet. Should this woman start calling these assholes "HillaryBros"? Or do Clinton supporters think that it might be kind of unfair to blame them for these comments?

This is an excellent piece on the Clinton vs Sanders fight.
Please don't let your zeal for either candidate blind you to the fact that no matter how you feel about their opponent, they're still a better option for President than any of the GOP lunatics.

Bernie Sanders Presses Hillary Clinton To Demand DNC Keep Ban On Lobbyist Cash

Hours after last week’s Democratic presidential debate, where candidates criticized money’s influence over politics, word leaked that the Democratic National Committee was overturningPresident Barack Obama’s ban on accepting campaign cash from lobbyists and political action committees. Now, Sen. Bernie Sanders is calling for the DNC to honor Obama’s policy and reverse its decision — and is demanding Hillary Clinton join him in that stance.

Clinton Wall Street-Funded Super PAC Enters Democratic Primary Against Sanders

This represents the first time one of the pro-Clinton super PACs has purchased paid broadcast advertising.The super PAC previously said it would only deploy its millions for the general election against Republicans.

Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said, “It is truly unfortunate that the largest pro-Clinton super PAC has decided to infect the democratic primary process with its haul of Wall Street cash. Democratic voters expect more. Doesn’t the Clinton campaign have the funds to run its own ads without resorting to its super PAC, which is funded by the very people Secretary Clinton has promised to take on?”___Clinton is now so scared of Sanders that she's unleashing the big money against him. :/

Clinton thinks that she is entitled to the votes of feminists. Many feminists - especially younger ones - disagree.
"The feminist establishment has declared her our candidate. However, many of the same women once chose politics (and Bill Clinton) over sisterhood"

Let the truth be known, I have never celebrated the death of anyone, for life really is precious.

However, an open seat on the Supreme Court while a Democrat is in office, will only be good for the United States of America--and for that, I celebrate.

Becky was an innocent college student. She'd overheard computer-geeks in the cafeteria arguing about the dangers of Adobe, but she was a business student, & didn't pay much attention to tech stuff. So she thought nothing of it when she downloaded a paper in PDF format & couldn't open it. She asked one of her friends what to do, & he suggested that she have a taste of Adobe Reader. "But isn't Adobe dangerous?" she said. He assured her that it wasn't, & that everybody did it. So she took it, & everything seemed fine.

Little did she know that the evil software was hooking it's way into the nooks & crannies of her system, so subtly that only an expert could spot the symptoms. 
  Next, she found a funny website her friends were going nuts over, but it wouldn't work without Adobe Flash. She hit the download button & injected it into her system with barely a second thought. Sadly, the evil software had quietly ruined her immune system, & it didn't take long for opportunistic infections to target her. The symptoms were a lot like a bad case of the flu, except that it slowly got worse instead of getting better. She had no idea that the mountains of spam that were now filling her inbox & popping up on her browser had anything to do with her dabbling in Adobe.
  The final stage came after her Adobe habit became an actual addiction, & she found herself paying real money to hit up Adobe Creative Cloud multiple times a day.  Then one day, her /.bzvol folder simply fell off. Just like that. Gone.
Her mom weeps for her every year on that day, wishing she could have her innocent daughter back, wishing that she'd known to warn her about the dangers of Adobe.
ADOBE - NOT EVEN ONCE.

The Australian government has very, very quietly opened submissions for criticism of the TPP - "Free Trade" agreement that will sign our rights as a nation over to a private court (ISDS) owned & operated by the corporations themselves.

Why would you vote for anyone who doesn't have a plan to fix this?
In the United States today, there is at least $100 trillion in wealth. $100 trillion is an unprecedented amount. The average person cannot even begin to comprehend such astonishing wealth. It is too far removed from historical precedent and beyond any personal experience.
  In a time of unprecedented wealth, we now have an all-time record-breaking number of people living in poverty. It has been accurately reported that in the last decade while overall wealth has grown by 60 percent, the number of homeless children has also grown by 60 percent, and the number of children on food stamps has increased by 70 percent. In a time of unprecedented wealth we now have full-time workers who need food stamps to survive, and conditions are getting more severe, the trends are getting worse.

Well looky here, yet another Clinton supporter claiming that the only reason lefties are supporting Sanders is that they're sexist.
Look, asshole, if Elizabeth Warren were running, I - like most other Sanders supporters that I know - would be backing her vs Clinton just as strongly as I'm backing Sanders, & for the same reasons.

Sitting next to Michael was Lexis, who had less to say about Clinton’s ties to Wall Street, and more to say about her campaign appeals. “I have a very large problem with the fact that a very large part of her campaign is riding on the fact that she’s a woman, and expects people like me—women—to vote for her,” she said. She continued: “All I have heard so far is ‘I’m a woman vote for me, because we need a woman president.’ We’ll have plenty of time in the future for women to run, for qualified, worthy women to run. We need to get over this concept of immediate gratification that’s driving this campaign.”

Moscow's cat theatre, & accusations of cruelty.
Looking at the video, all the tricks are things that cats I've known would have fun doing, and cats are totally untrainable if you don't do it with kindness, so I'm pretty sceptical of the claims. I guess the only way to be 100% sure would be to spend months with the circus, watching the whole training regime.

That whole BernieBros thing? All the sexist attacks I've seen on Clinton supporters have been from Trump supporters, not Sanders supporters. I don't doubt that there are sexist asshole Sanders supporters, but I haven't run into any yet. Meanwhile, here's how female Sanders supporters are treated by the Internet. Should this woman start calling these assholes "HillaryBros"? Or do Clinton supporters think that it might be kind of unfair to blame them for these comments?

#australia  +STEM Women on G+ 

n December 2015, the United Nations passed a resolution to recognise on February 11 each year women's contributions to the field.

The UN's research showed females "continued to be excluded from participating fully in science", with the number of science graduates significantly lower than males.

That doesn't mean women have not excelled in science — far from it.

The ABC spoke to a number of Australian female scientists and researchers at the top of their field.___ #australia  +STEM Women on G+

Nice one Brisbane hospital. Talk about "passive resistance" ;)

a hospital spokesperson said it was treating a 12-month-old girl from Nauru and "as is the case with every child who presents at the hospital, this patient will only be discharged once a suitable home environment is identified".___Some in Australia are doing whatever it takes to keep refugee children out of the government's abusive concentration camps.

Following the Sanders landslide in NH, the Clinton campaign's taken it's gloves off in a big way: Yet another baby-boomer fake-progressive insults Sanders supporters by calling us naive, & claiming that he's unelectable.
And then there's the outright offensive  & ignorant comparisons to the countries that Sanders wants the US to emulate:
"I don't even WANT free college tuition for affluent young people. In some countries they can do it because relatively few go to universities--not so here. It's completely unbelievable."
Um, no. In countries that have free college education, a higher percentage of kids go to college than in America.
Read the whole thing, it's purest pro-Clinton propaganda, &  I don't believe the author's claim that they've ever been a Sanders supporter.

Ta-Nehisi Coates has announced that while he stops short of endorsing Sanders, he is going to vote for him:
It's great to see that researching Sanders has changed his views!
  Mr. Coates said he was “stunned” by Mr. Sanders’s rise and by his ability to compete with Hillary Clinton.
  “Had you told me this like a year ago, I certainly would not have expected, you know, an avowed socialist to be putting up these sorts of numbers, and actually be contending for the Democratic Party nomination, but I think it’s awesome,” Mr. Coates said. “I think it’s great.”

In this letter, +Anna Butler uses basic economics to debunk the myth that it's a good thing for the Australian budget to be in surplus.
#auspol   #australia  

If you think it's important that Australia has a surplus, please read this plain-English explanation by +Anna Butler (from a letter she wrote to her local MP)...

Thank you for finally responding to my letter. However, you have not really provided any answers to refute the concerns I raised. 

With regards to a federal government surplus, it is not enough to roll out the tired, lazy “Labor mess” rhetoric, or to simply say “I can assure you that returning to a Budget surplus is better for all Australians and for the economy.”

Why should I believe that when you’ve not actually offered any assurances, let alone any evidence to support them? 

Let me show you my evidence to the contrary. I hope you take the time to actually look at it and I welcome any flaws you may find with my argument.

As I pointed out in my previous correspondence, if the Government runs a surplus, it removes money from the private sector – businesses and households. The reality of maths is not a “different view” when it comes to how the economy should be managed.

Please take a look at the sectoral balance charts from various countries I have attached. 

You will notice the debits/surpluses in every single country always mirror each other. Always.

This is not a coincidence. 

This is not a difference of economic opinion. 

This is because all the money in an economy is a series of transactions which ultimately balance out to zero. Money spent in one sector (debit), by default, appears in another sector as a credit. 

This is how balance sheets work. 

It is basic mathematics.

If the government spends $1,000 it becomes a credit for either the private sector (households and businesses) or the foreign sector (imports from rest of the world). It may be a $900 credit for the private sector and a $100 credit for the foreign sector, but the net sum will balance to $0 (-$1,000 [govt] + $900 [private] + $100 [foreign] = $0). 

For both the government sector and private sector to be in surplus at the same time, the foreign sector would need to be in debit. That means we would need to be making far more in exports than we’re spending on imports…. more than the sum of both the public AND private sector together. 

Given Australia has run trade deficits since the 1980s, that means the foreign sector is generally always in surplus (that is, the rest of the world is making more money from us, than we make from them) and is probably likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future.

Foreign Sector = Surplus

As such, that means that at least one of the remaining sectors will need to be in debit to balance the foreign sector. 

If your government is determined to have a public sector surplus, that means that the private sector – households and businesses – MUST be in deficit. It is mathematically impossible for all three sectors to be in surplus (or deficit) at the same time.  Two can be… but the third must balance them in the opposite direction, as clearly demonstrated by the sectoral balance charts. 

Your party suggests that sector should be the private sector.

The problem is, when the private sector is in debt it means the private sector has less money to spend. Less spending means people are not buying goods and services, as debt reduction becomes a higher priority.  When people aren’t spending on good and services, this means businesses aren’t making as much money. In turn, this leads to job losses and increased unemployment. Unemployed people have even less to spend… and the cycle continues in a downward spiral. 

The economy slows, production drops and we end up in a recession.

The US sectoral balance chart clearly illustrates where recession has followed every government surplus.

So how exactly will a government surplus be a good thing for all Australians, and the economy, if it means increased debt for the private sector and a high probability of a recession? 

Why is debt of around 120% of GDP OK for the private sector, when government debt of around 14% of GDP is considered a bad thing? Especially – and quite critically – when the private sector does not have the same means as the Federal government to issue its own currency to service its own debt?

I’m keen to hear why you think increased private sector debt is good (especially for households that don’t have the means to offshore their earnings and avoid paying tax through corporate loopholes), or how surpluses for both the public and foreign sectors will defy mathematic reality and not result in greater debt for the private sector.

When you can explain these things, then perhaps I will take your assurances more seriously.

I look forward to your response.___In this letter, +Anna Butler uses basic economics to debunk the myth that it's a good thing for the Australian budget to be in surplus.

Group that shares pay-walled scientific papers for free, brings to life the dream that Aaron Schwartz gave his life for.

Here, you can see the Pirates of Penzience hailing from Kazakhstan to proudly report having almost completed Aaron Swartz's great work of turning Wikipedia into gold publishing the sum total of human knowledge.

This was a game changer. Before September 2011, there was no way for people to freely access paywalled research en masse; researchers like Elbakyan were out in the cold. Sci-Hub is the first website to offer this service and now makes the process as simple as the click of a single button.

As the number of papers in the LibGen database expands, the frequency with which Sci-Hub has to dip into publishers’ repositories falls and consequently the risk of Sci-Hub triggering its alarm bells becomes ever smaller. Elbakyan explains, “We have already downloaded most paywalled articles to the library ... we have almost everything!” This may well be no exaggeration. Elsevier, one of the most prolific and controversial scientific publishers in the world, recently alleged in court that Sci-Hub is currently harvesting Elsevier content at a rate of thousands of papers per day. Elbakyan puts the number of papers downloaded from various publishers through Sci-Hub in the range of hundreds of thousands per day, delivered to a running total of over 19 million visitors.___Group that shares pay-walled scientific papers for free, brings to life the dream that Aaron Schwartz gave his life for.
