More proof that a good heart can be more valuable than a formal education.
 
Martin Couney had run infant incubator exhibits, in which premature babies were displayed to the public, for more than three decades, most famously at Coney Island in New York City. He had long been regarded by desperate parents as a savior, one who offered medical help to babies written off as “weaklings” by mainstream medicine.

Yes indeed.

Indifference and paranoia are shaping America’s immigration policy, as they did during World War II.

Sitting in at the symposium of NASA's Innovative & Advanced Concepts program (I am on the advisory council) we all gathered round for the announcement confirming recent rumors of a "goldilocks zone" planet orbiting the nearest visible star to our own -- Proxima Centauri. The planet orbits every 11.2 days. It’s at least 1.3 times as massive as our planet, and based on its likely size, astronomers think it is rocky. Its home star is only .15 percent as bright as the sun. The system is 25 trillion miles away, more than 270,000 times farther than the sun. The Proxima team used the radial velocity method, analyzing the star's light for wobbles caused by orbiting planets… a different approach than the "transit eclipse" approach used by the Kepler spacecraft ti detect thousands of new worlds… using the HARPS spectrograph, mounted on a 3.6-meter telescope at La Silla Observatory in Chile. Note that this planet orbiting so close to its dim sun will probably be tidal-locked like our moon is toward the Earth. Also, like most small K or M types stars, Proxima emits a lot of flares and X-rays, meaning even if there's liquid water on this world. Hence any life would need to shelter along a Twilight Zone.

Can we learn more? Well, if we are lucky with the Proxima system's orbital plane -- There’s only a 1.5 percent chance the Proxima Centauri system’s geometry is arranged in such a way that we could see this. But if so, we might be able to look at its atmosphere. But even if there's no transit, some of the endeavors being funded by NIAC might enable us to see this new world even better, so stay tuned!
No one will ever find a closer exoplanet—now the race is on to see if there is life on its surface.

30 seconds. Watch it and laugh!
 
Duct tape Tron sends pieces of tape racing into cyberspace http://tnw.me/zz5dbIt
It's hard to see an immediate connection between Tron and duct tape, but there is now. It's a race in cyberspace, but for tape.

Awesome video! I'll have to watch more of this series
Wildlife photographer Bertie Gregory encounters one of the most majestic birds of prey — the bald eagle. Bald eagles may be America’s de facto mascot, but they also have a secret talent — snatching fish from the open waters.

I give up. I have finally set up a new Google+ profile picture. I enjoyed having five small images that I set up way back in 2011. It's not like I lack photos or anything. I have just been lazy... and nostalgic... _and get off my lawn!

quote: It’s dangerous because Trump is now strongly suggesting that people take election-law matters into their own hands by calling for a red-shirted army of vigilante poll watchers to fall into formation. There is a clear history of racist bullying that comes with this kind of desperado poll-monitoring, and here’s what that’s already starting to look like:
Donald Trump is playing on well-worn Republican suspicions that data just don’t bear out. His suggestions are racist and dangerous, say experts.

My wife and I stayed for four nights while we visited family. The room was clean and quiet, as we expect with Hampton Inns. We were surprised to have had a couple of problems, though, since this particular hotel has always been perfect on previous visits. Specifically, the A/C was broken in our first room; our key quit working (which required me to walk the length of the building in the rain to enter via the main door); and housekeeping incompletely serviced our room on the first day. None were big deals but none should have happened at all. The good news is that the problems were quickly rectified. We will return to this hotel and I hope that, next time, it goes back to being a 5-star experience.

I have been eating at Erio's for over a decade. The food is consistently excellent. The staff consistently present, which says a lot about the restaurant if they don't have much staff turnover. The service is always outstanding and personal. You can't go wrong at Erio's.
