Participating in the hangout will be NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, who currently is living and working aboard the space station; astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston; director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter and producer Damon Lindelof; and stars of the film, Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho. The participants will ask questions of each other and take questions from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City (home of the space shuttle Enterprise), the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, and social media followers.  Ask a question prior to or during the event by posting a comment here or on Twitter using the #askNASA hashtag.NASA Connects Space Station and "Star Trek Into Darkness" Crews2013-05-16 18:00:002736

NASA2,449,407Having 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 16:30:008329

New State of Matter Found

It's interesting that we can now create new forms of matter that don't exist in the natural universe. I predict that we aren't far off from a new technological revolution.

If you've seen Jibe in concert I already know you'll be there. If not I promise you will hate yourself for not going. In my years of concert photography no other band was able to create so much inner energy, yet still touch you deeply. The lyrics were fantastic and somehow the music itself was able communicate just as effectively. I never expected them to get back together. If I could only be able too travel to Dallas for this show. I know it will be epic!

I'm living proof that one's life will follow the path set forth by the music listened to in their formative years

Nothing left to say
And all I've left to do
Is run away
From you
And she led me on, down
With secrets I can't keep 

Close your eyes and sleep
Don't wait up for me
Hush now don't you speak
To me

Wrapped my hurt in you
And took my shelter in that pain
The opiate of blame
Is your broken heart, your heart

So now I'm all by myself
As I've always felt
I'll betray my tears
To anyone caught in our ruse of fools

One last kiss from me...yeah
One last kiss good night

Didn't want to lose you once again
Didn't want to be your friend
Fulfilled a promise made of tin
And crawled back to you

Epic Music to Get Your Day Going!

If you pay attention to the lyrics and the emotion of the music this is one of the top songs ever recorded, in my opinion anyway. Didn't care much for the released tracks. The real beauty is the rest of the album.

Fighting Media Inaccurate Reporting - Google Could Help

So all this media coverage was over her violating regulations that didn't exist when she was in office. Do they ever hire reporters who went to school for, or maybe had at least a passive interest in proper journalism, such as verifying information before publishing? I know that everyone has a political leaning and opinion but proper journalism must be done via reporting verified facts. Growing up I remember it was a huge deal if something was incorrect in a news report, now it's almost to be expected.

I know a big degree of bias comes from the corporations which own the particular media outlet, however I also see this as a case where our instant access to news has put reporters and media outlets on the spot to be the first to break a story, even if it is inaccurate because the first to break the story is going to... more »

Do they ever hire reporters who went to school for, or maybe had at least a passive interest in proper journalism, such as verifying information before publishing? I know that everyone has a political leaning and opinion but proper journalism must be done via reporting verified facts. Growing up I remember it was a huge deal if something was incorrect in a news report, now it's almost to be expected.

I know a big degree of bias comes from the corporations which own the particular media outlet, however I also see this as a case where our instant access to news has put reporters and media outlets on the spot to be the first to break a story, even if it is inaccurate because the first to break the story is going to gain the most attention which equals profit, regardless of accuracy.

Google Trust Rank For News Articles
The only thing I can think of which might help the situation would be for +Google  to add a simple formula to their news ranking algorithm which reduces a news site's ranking according to the amount of inaccurate reporting. It would best done by human review which would require minimal staff, however a simple routine to scan for retractions, corrections, et shouldn't be that hard to code. If no retraction were made Google could also pinpoint reporting accuracy by gathering "factual" statements made in an initial story report and comparing them against "factual" statements on the same topic in follow up stories, if there appears to be a change in the reported "facts", the article could be flagged for human review which would be less taxing on human resources needed to do the job. It could also be narrowed down to a particular reporter, if the reporter moves to another news agency and has a sudden change in accuracy it would be a signal that the news outlet policies bear more responsibility, otherwise it's more on the reporter.

The more visible inaccurate reporting is to the web, the more it gets spread via social media which brings in viewers and advertising dollars. One of my biggest frustrations with our instant news culture for me has been the priority given to first reporting vs accurate reporting, and I really think this could have an impact. Even the slightest change can make a world of difference.

What do you think of this solution?

To put an end to the rumors that my lack of posting for the past week or so means I'm dead. Let me put those rumors to rest.

I've had what may be the worst week of my life. Not so much as hurting myself but letting the most important people in my life down. Add to it, getting into an accident in the off ramp lane in the rain, receiving $150 citation, having someone decide to smash my tail light and being on the verge of being unable to pay the bills to keep my business alive. Letting people I care about down is the biggest issue for me. It's time for me to evaluate my negative habits and thinking and realize it doesn't just hurt me but those around me too. I also have to come up with some great marketing fast or I could lose my chance at fulfilling my dream. It's time for me to grow up and be a man.

Founder of Newsboys Comes Out As An Atheist

He makes some good points about the Christian rock scene. I think I would have more respect for them if they preached what they practice.

I remember some Christian rock band member (Don't remember the group name off hand but they were very popular and I believe based in Tulsa) who raped a girl who was around 13-14 years old. Instead of getting charges pressed he was "forgiven". Maybe it's just me but I don't think that holds moral weight and was likely more to do with avoiding headlines and moving past the negative light than anything to do with being righteous.

With exception of people with serious mental conditions we all have a built in moral compass regardless of following a religion or not but it seems that in any kind of group it becomes easier for people to make immoral choices because as others... more »

Now You Can Turn Any Large Prop / Small Jet Into a VTOL Hover Lander!

It's not so much the crosswind but the headwind that catches my attention on this one. As a pilot it's not often you get to land vertically. I'd love to try it once if I weren't concerned about downdrafts.

Photography during the Blue Hour.
If you are a photographer you are probably familiar with the "golden hours" after sunrise and before sunset to get a nice warm tone.
While I've occasionally done night shots here and there making sure the keep the shutter open long enough to get the blue sky at night background, this is the first time I've heard of the actual term "blue hour" and learned it also has optimal times. Should be cool to check out.

Innocent or Guilty?

I had a pain pill out on my desk this morning, toward the back off course. When I came home from getting food it was missing. The only one in the house who had access to my bedroom briefly while I went to get a Voltage to drink was Eddy.

I just took this photo of him. Does he look innocent or guilty?

Strangest Nightmare Ever?

I just woke up from a pretty bad nightmare. There was a restaurant and pub located next to one of my fishing spots at the Arkansas River. Would be between Washington Irving Park and the river itself. I remember this location from past dreams, looks different than the actual place but it's that area. Anyway apparently I hang out there and brought my mom for some reason and during the dream I really needed to pee (in the dream and real life) so I find the bathroom, instead of urinals it's filled with nothing but open toilets, fine whatever. But they are surrounded by (if you are eating breakfast stop reading now). Surrounded by vast amounts of diarrhea, including the floor and walls  and I'm barefoot but really have to pee.

But they are surrounded by (if you are eating breakfast stop reading now). Surrounded by vast amounts of diarrhea, including the floor and walls  and I'm barefoot but really have to pee. A worker is in there to do clean up. For me to stay out of the diarrhea  I have to stand way back and when I start to pee it sprays all over including on the worker so I have to stop (everyone knows that's the worst feeling ever when you REALLY have to go). I'm instructed to go find something to help increase my aim and I end up in the restaurant looking for it and of course for no reason I'm naked at this point but really don't care. Then I start to become conscious and realize that I need to wake myself up to go pee and wake up.

Someone want to analyze that dream for me? Or better yet, one up it!

This guy has very awesome work and one hell of an offer. If you need a good video intro check him out!

I Need Your Help: An Experiment In Asking And Trusting Via Amanda Palmer: I Will Create A Motion Graphic Opening For You, Your Company, Product, Podcast or Family Videos And You Pay What You Want.

I posted this a while ago but I'm posting it again because I need your help. 

I read (actually listened to the audiobook) Amanda Palmer's incredible book THE ART OF ASKING  (buy it! Buy it here: http://amzn.to/1s0Ztd5 It will change your life ) and in it Amanda talks about not being afraid to ask people for things and trusting that people are worth trusting.  So here goes;

I do motion graphics and from the video below you can kind of get the feel for what I do. This is the sort of stuff that would be great for company logos, openings of podcasts, Hangouts On Air or even family videos. The average length and the length I think works great is about 10-15 seconds. I just did an original one for +Ryan M. Danks and his production company. 

This can be a video opening for a YouTube video, a YouTube Channel, a company video, a training video or just your family videos. 

Normally I charge anywhere from $75 to $300-400.00 for this kind of work and I want to do it for you. I'm asking you to let me do this for you and I'm asking you to pay me for it.

That's the asking, here comes the trust part: You pay what you want to pay. 

Along the lines of many artists like Radiohead or other musicians who trust people to be fair, I am trusting you. Pay what you want.

Here's the Help part: I would appreciate you resharing this (and if you know me I really don't like asking people to reshare ever) and if you have a need, help me by asking me (and paying me) to do a video for you. I need to bring in some money to help with family, bills and all that. I'll give you a great video!

Here's the ins and outs: I have the right to refuse a commission (unlikely but this is the internet so you got to say stuff like that), depending on what you want or need it could take a week or two to produce - I will try and give you a time table at time of commission and acceptance, I'll work with you as much as possible and I can do some basic logo work but hopefully you've got your own logo. (if you need a logo designed or developed I've got a fantastic graphic designer for you)  If this turns into a lot of commissions and I'm swamped I'll let you know immediately and I will ask you to wait or forgive. I want to deliver in a timely manner any I accept. 

I will deliver to you an HD version of the final product in 720p (1280 x 720) or the resolution of your choice.

Again, I'll do this for you and you pay what you want (paypal is best) because I am developing my trust of the internet and her citizens. 

You can message me directly here on Google+ (I'm here all the time so it's an easy place for me) or email me at the email in the end of the video. Best thing is if you want something in the video (but with your logo) or some variation on it. If not, describe to me what you've got in mind and I'll tell you if that's possible. Making 3D versions of logos and words is almost always doable.  I can also do your end credits or a lower-third for your name to animate onto the screen. 

Totally serious about this and hoping to do +Amanda Palmer    proud even though she never comes around here any more. I want to start my business again after being away for so long (damn day job and responsibilities) plus I love doing this sort of thing plus I need the extra money. 

 I want to love what I'm doing again... don't we all?

Let's have some fun and create some cool stuff. Please tell your friends that might be interested.___This guy has very awesome work and one hell of an offer. If you need a good video intro check him out!

My Early After Christmas Sale Is Now The After Christmas Sale!

I know, I was in shock when I decided to rename it too. Haha. On a more serious note, art is a tricky subject. very frequently something that looks amazingly beautiful to me might see the complete opposite in the image. Of course once it's pointed out to me I can understand what they are talking about, this way I can either pull or fix the problem with the photo.

I know comments are enabled on all my SmugMug photos and I believe they are also on Etsy though not sure. I am going to try to get my portfolio to between 40-60 photos as soon as I can reasonably do it. Even a little input can go a long way into shaping the rest of my portfolio as far as the types of photos I upload, the way I edit them, attention to small detail et so please don't be shy.

Get up to 60% off anything you want from my galleries. The more you buy the bigger the discount. I highly recommend the Floating Metal and Gallery Canvas Wraps since you don't have to spend $600+ to frame a decent sized photo, you can even clean the floating metal prints without worrying about ruining the photo. Details are in the SmugMug store! I may add specialty prints to Etsy as well if enough free time and temporary sanity come around :)

One last thing, a handful of photos are available on Etsy which aren't on SmugMug and vice versa. If you would like me to add a particular photo to a gallery let me know, if I'm at the computer I should be able to get it moved within half an hour!

National Geographic's Take on Viral "Monkey giving CPR" video.

And of course my take before the article.

I would say the monkey was trying to revive his shocked partner and succeeded. I wouldn't make the jump to say he knew much about what he was doing other than common sense things that would be instinctual. More like trying to "wake him up" rather than revive him. If you are trying to wake someone you might shake them and splash some water on their face. And honestly I really doubt his friend was actually dead, just knocked out. How often do you hear of someone being brought back after 20 minutes dead even with modern medicine?

New Upload: I took this photo of Downtown Tulsa during a rare White Christmas we had in 2009. It was a perfect day for getting shots since no one wanted to drive in the snow. Of the shoot that day this has always been my favorite. I just finished remastering it last night to enhance the texture and color in the old buildings and am very happy with the results.

This is the last day of my 50% off sale and last day you can receive an item in time for Christmas with overnight shipping (paper print section only as specialty items take an extra day). However if you don't mind waiting until after Christmas to receive it you can still take advantage of the 50% off offer tonight. - I'll continue a sale through the holiday season but I'm going to change it to a purchase amount based discount, the more you buy the more you save.

Last chance to receive my SmugMug photos in time for Christmas!

Sharing is Caring

Believe it or not, even with paid advertising I didn't have any luck with sales over all the holiday shopping days so I'm bringing my sale back in hopes that a few might appreciate my work enough to hang in their home or office. Plus there is still time to receive the order before Christmas!

I'm deciding on the next round of photos to edit and upload and crossing my fingers for good results. The products I sell are the same kind that you see hanging in medical offices and I've seen the printed examples of both fine art luster and floating metal prints and was impressed by the lab's quality. I would go so far as to pick floating metal over the more popular canvas because they work great for my style.

Oklahoma Senator Bryce Marlatt Arrested on DUI Related Charge

The first thing he says to the officer is that he didn't have any more to drink than anyone else which suggests he was at a party. His lawyer says he had a single mixed drink, followed by a sleeping pill before leaving the office.

So his legal defence combined with his statement to the officer is suggesting that there was a party at the senator's office involving others ("no more than anyone else" suggest at least 2 other people) .
Why wouldn't the news be questioning why a US Senator is throwing a party in his office on a Monday night of all nights? It would be easy enough to trace. Track the route from his office to home and see if it matches where he was found. Get statements which confirm or deny drinking at the office. Or better yet, if none of his staff was present then who was... more »

Or better yet, if none of his staff was present then who was there.

If it's confirmed that there was an alcohol involved office party in the senator's office on a Monday night then you've got a good headline since they shouldn't be drinking on the job and it looks like they aren't taking their duties very seriously. If it wasn't an office party and took place somewhere else, then why wasn't his wife with him? - Now that's a ripe scandal for the modern tabloid news media.
Will the press let this story float by and die or will a reporter actually do his/her job on this one?

Anybody out there? echo, echo, echo, echo

My big holiday half off everything sale will be over on Monday. Surprisingly even though I've spent money marketing to several thousand I haven't turned over a single sale yet. I know my SmugMug album desperately needs a bigger selection so I've been remastering / uploading new photos as I get the chance (I mean, who could say no to the baby chimp photo?). My work has sold off and on throughout the year, I just don't get why it wouldn't when I'm advertising to people right when they are looking to buy.

Any advice would be appreciated, I've really been hoping this would be my turn around time. It's not over yet but I have to admit I'm a bit bummed so far.

PS: If you wouldn't mind following my photography page I could get a nice little boost to my ego :)

Time is Running Out on the Holiday Fine Art Sale!
Code: HOLIDAY50PCT (That's half off the entire order!)
SmugMug: http://emmett.smugmug.com/ 
Etsy: http://etsy.me/EverythingEmmett 
Dates: Now through 12/1/14

Take advantage of the biggest sale of the year! Get 50% off every item you want from now through Monday Dec 1st with code HOLIDAY50PCT on both SmugMug and Etsy shops (links above). And remember the code discounts the entire order and you can reuse it as often as you like until the sale ends on the night of December 1st.

I am working hard to remaster and upload several new photos per day throughout the sale so if you don't see something you like now, just check back the next day. You might be surprised at the range of photos I have to offer and if nothing else, share the sale with a friend who may be interested. 

Yesterday I added a precious photo of a baby chimp studying his schoolwork in front of a parent who is looking on in awe, beautiful panoramic image of some severe storm mammatus clouds which have a beautiful mix of red/orange/yellow, one of my digital paintings titled Redhead. Remember your store owner is narcoleptic so you could find new uploads at virtually any hour of the day. I'm picking the images I'm remastering for sale based on past reactions when I first shot/posted the photos, some back to 2004. I've found over 700 photos of purchase quality since looking through my archives. Upon other photographer's advice I'm limiting the work I have for sale to between 40 and 60 images.

Don't forget to like/follow this page and if you would like to be notified about each new photo upload please enable notifications.
