NASA2,530,727Having 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 16:30:008326

Beautiful collection of August Moons

In this collection of images you can see our Moon on different dates in August, imaged by Bartosz Wojczyński.

Technical details and bigger versions of the individual images can be found on his website here http://albireo.vipower.pl/bar/gallery-lunar1.html.

Colors

The Moon appears very colorful in these images, he used this process to achieve this effect:

1. Take a monochrome photo with a red and blue filter
2. Synthesize the green channel
3. Merge channels into a RGB image
4. Boost the saturation

4. Boost the saturation

The color differences you can see in these images are corresponding to real differences in the chemical makeup of the lunar soil. In the case of the Moon you can expect the darker maria to have a stronger blue hue because of titanium dioxide in the lunar soil. Areas with less titanium and iron have stronger brownish/reddish hues.

More information on the color of the Moon here:

I Swear Its Just This Simple

You have a business that is doing decently and, you employ 2 people. 
Your business is located in a small town of say 500 people that consists of :

10% poor
45% lower middle class 
30% middle class 
10%  upper middle class
 5% wealthy

Your "product" is considered a bit of a luxury item that is typically purchased by upper middle class and wealthy individuals. 

You would like to employ some of those poor/unemployed people but business just doesnt dictate that you hire more people. 

Two  possible solutions

1 ) You get relief in the form of tax breaks.  Does this change your willingness to hire more people? Has you  customer traffic changed to justify new hires? Or are you likely to pocket the additional cash?

Two  possible solutions

1 ) You get relief in the form of tax breaks.  Does this change your willingness to hire more people? Has you  customer traffic changed to justify new hires? Or are you likely to pocket the additional cash?

2 ) People in in the lower/middle class receive the tax breaks. What happens when people who are just or barely  making ends meet receive more money in their paychecks? Are they more likely to pocket it? Or spend on items that they have gone without or would like to have (luxury items)?

The ABCs of Consumer Spending & Job Creation 

A) Consumers spend when they have more money in their pockets...creating a demand  
B) Companies rush in to service and capitalize on that need by creating new businesses and expanding existing ones to service that demand. 
C) Companies hire more people to service new customers and the increased demand

So who creates jobs?
  
People do.  And by giving the tax breaks to the working class, everyone expands and profits.___

Call of the Void

It was in the twilight of summer, when the trees begin to whisper of autumn. The wheat field outside my family’s house had been harvested a couple of days before, and the night sky was crystal clear. With blanket in hand, I trekked out to the middle of the field to look at the stars.

When you lie out in the middle of a field, all you see is stars. The tree line is at the edge of your peripheral vision, so if you keep your head still, it’s just a field of stars. At first you’ll notice the brightest stars, and then the recognition of constellations. You might notice a shooting star, or watch a satellite shine briefly across the sky.  But if you’re still, and you keep watching the sky, changes happen.

Call of the Void

It was in the twilight of summer, when the trees begin to whisper of autumn. The wheat field outside my family’s house had been harvested a couple of days before, and the night sky was crystal clear. With blanket in hand, I trekked out to the middle of the field to look at the stars.

When you lie out in the middle of a field, all you see is stars. The tree line is at the edge of your peripheral vision, so if you keep your head still, it’s just a field of stars. At first you’ll notice the brightest stars, and then the recognition of constellations. You might notice a shooting star, or watch a satellite shine briefly across the sky.  But if you’re still, and you keep watching the sky, changes happen.

After about half an hour, your eyes become dark adapted. Faint objects such as the Milky Way become more clear, and what seems like thousands of stars begins to seem like millions. The sky deepens beyond the stars, and you see smudges and ripples of light. There’s a range of color to the sky beyond light and dark. The brightest stars gain a sparkle you hadn’t noticed before. It is a brilliance and subtlety you hadn’t noticed before.

Within an hour you’ll begin to notice the stars have shifted. A bright star has drifted above your head, or a star off to the side now dances on the edge of your vision. Once aware of the motion, you can’t help but notice it. The eternal drift of the night sky. For me, that’s usually about the time when it occurs. I was about 13 the first time it happened to me. Lying in the middle of that field on a late summer night. The stars seemed to race toward me, though not a single star moved. It hit like a physical blow, and I gripped the soil to keep from falling into the sky.

It is a feeling both wondrous and terrifying. A realization that you are clinging to a rock in motion through the cosmos, and the feeling that the pull of the world might not be enough to hold you.___

"As we struggle with issues of immigration, discrimination and racial prejudice, Mother Nature, meanwhile, follows its own course, embracing society's plurality and, in the process, shaking up our perceptions about origins, ethnicity and identity."

"A turning point for me came when I became aware of how much dehumanizing rhetoric we communicated about those on the other side of social and political issues. The usual targets were Republicans, Evangelical Christians, and anyone connected to the military. As I became aware of this pattern, I experienced a dissonance between my work and my faith which called me to love strangers and even enemies."

"In many ways, this is like any other cross-cultural work, needing the same skills: deep listening, not making assumptions about people, and working on ourselves before entering into relationships. For example, Quakers doing anti-racism work are realizing that white privilege needs to be addressed; there’s some intentional balancing of the scales. We have to do deep work and be part of communities of accountability."

So who pays the bulk of U.S. taxes? The burden has shifted from companies to individuals over time.

In the early 1950s, corporations accounted for over 30% of U.S. tax revenues. Today, businesses pay about 11% of taxes, according to the U.S. Treasury.

Businesses became smarter about finding ways to legally lower their tax bills over the years. Companies that operate globally moved their tax jurisdictions overseas to reduce how much they paid in U.S. taxes.

"Smarter about finding ways" is a euphemism for lobbying to create ways to dodge their responsibilities.  It wasn't like those smarter ways were just sitting there waiting to be discovered.  They've funneled a lot of money into creating those loopholes (and into the politicians who could make that happen for them).

My one quibble is that the author seems to think that the goal is for Bernie's campaign to move Hillary farther to the left ("the left that twenty years ago was decidedly Centrist").  No, the goal is for Bernie to win the election and represent the American people in the way that we want to be represented.

Hackers have posted the user info from cheater site Ashley Madison

The hackers appeared to target AshleyMadison and EstablishedMen over the questionable morals they condoned and encouraged, but they also took issue with what they considered ALM’s fraudulent business practices. Despite promising customers to delete their user data from the site for a $19 fee, the company actually retained the data on ALM’s servers, the hackers claimed. “Too bad for those men, they’re cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion,” the hackers wrote. “Too bad for ALM, you promised secrecy but didn’t deliver.”

Looks interesting.

Google has partnered with TP-Link (and soon ASUS) to start selling home routers. They are managed from your phone, and are self updating. And they have 13 (!) internal antennas for Bluetooth® Smart Ready, Weave, 802.15.4, and 802.11ac. An "appliance" router is exactly what many people need.___Looks interesting.

This looks very promising. Though not as much of an improvement now that Hangouts has been split out from G+, it's still nicer than the Google provided interface, IMHO.

I just wish I could integrate other things (like IRC) into Hangouts... I'd need that before I could dump Pidgin and call it my primary messaging tool.
