Astronomers Without Borders231,765Astronauts Ron Garan and Anousheh Ansari join us for this special AWB Hangout, "Astronomy In the Development of STEM Education". Though often neglected in traditional educational systems, astronomy is an ideal way to present science and other technical fields in schools. With limited resources, especially in developing countries, astronomy offers an accessible "laboratory" in a subject that already fascinates children. AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania is just one example of how astronomy is used to promote science learning and curriculum-building in developing countries. This panel discussion will look at how astronomy has been used for development and the opportunities that remain. Guests: Ron Garan is a former astronaut, aquanaut, and test pilot who is also an entrepreneur. He has founded multiple companies and socially-focused organizations. His social media following of 3.6 million makes him one of Google Plus’ “Top 25 Followed”, and a Kred “Top 1% Influencer”. Anousheh Ansari was a co-sponsor of the $10 million Ansari X Prize for the first private launch of a reusable manned spacecraft, and the first female private space explorer. She is a serial entrepreneur and currently the chairman of Prodea Systems which she co-founded. Kevin Govender is the Director of the International Astronomical Union's Office of Astronomy for Development in South Africa, which was created to use astronomy to make the world a better place. Mponda Malozo is an environmentalist in Tanzania who also works with the educational system as a science consultant promotes astronomy through outreach activities. He is the Tanzania Coordinator of the Universe Awareness Foundation and a project manager for AWB's Telescopes to Tanzania.Astronomy For the Development of STEM Education2014-08-06 18:00:0090  
Daria Musk3,702,374*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time. I'll be sure to circle you and invite you when you're web-camera-ready! ✪ Come with song requests, stories and even a "dream to amplify". The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in. I think I'm going to make invite circles for each half hour, so let me know when you want to join. Everyone's invited. It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine and deserves some showcased virtual face-to-face time. *XO, Daria* PS. *CONNECTED BY* This concert celebration is being supported by our new friends at CO-OP Connected Credit Unions. CO-OP is all about connection, just like our epic House Of Blues Concert, they've partnered up with us to make sure we stay together and keep banking on this amazing feeling we get when we connect through ethernet lines HANGOUTIVERSARY CONCERT2014-07-17 00:00:00387

Grameen Bank has been ranked 12th position on Fortune's Change the World List which is the recognition for creating new economic opportunities for those in poverty and bringing unbanked peopled under financial service.

For the first time, the magazine's "Change the World" list is ranking companies not by the dollars they make, but the good they are doing. According to the World Bank, globally, microfinance accounts for at least $60 billion in loans annually and has reached 135 million people.

#OrbitalPerspective  "You look down and see the Earth in all its beauty, but beyond the Earth there’s nothing except billions of miles of empty black void. "

"It’s not the borders between countries, it’s not the price of a barrel of oil, it’s not trade tariffs, it’s not illegal immigration. Earth is a tiny, #FragileOasis‬ of life, and what’s most important is human survival. And you see that so clearly from orbit." -

None of this is visible from earth or from #space , except for this tower, part of a complex of monuments to the country’s leaders.

Some of us are called to change the world. Others, to save it.
On June 6, 1944, seven decades before this picture was taken from the International Space Station, thousands of American, British and Canadian troops crossed the swells of the English Channel in 5,300 ships and 11,000 planes, landing on the beaches of Normandy, France.

Florence Nightingale was named by her parents for the city of her birth in the Tuscany region of the Italian Peninsula. But it is the Crimean Peninsula we most associate with the founder of modern nursing, where she tended to the wounded in one of humanity’s brutal conflicts. Today, on the 195th anniversary of her birth: sunglint reflected on the waters of the Crimean Peninsula from the #OrbitalPerspective of astronauts and cosmonauts living and working in space for the benefit of all. #LadyWithTheLamp

Thunderdome. Actually a thunderhead near northern Australia from the orbital perspective of astronauts in space. NASA explains: "With enough convective energy, clouds in the lowest layer of the atmosphere—the troposphere—can rise until they bump up against the stable overlying layer. When they reach that point, they spread sideways, making a thin upper zone shaped like an anvil." #OrbitalPerspective

Astronauts on board the International Space Station have about five minutes to observe the result of the collision of two continents some 50 million years ago, giving us a view of the violent thrust and gentle topography that spans 1,500 miles of our home planet - the Himalaya mountain range.

In April 1815, Mount Tambora, on Sumbawa Island in the Indonesian Archipelago, erupted with such violence that volcanic dust was ejected high enough into Earth's atmosphere to reduce solar radiation, leading to summer time ice and snow in the the northeast United States and Europe, crop failure and hunger. 1816 became known as the Year Without Summer.
