Clap if you believe in #Charterschools  children!
Look at the statistics and see how New Orleans Parish schools have floundered and failed when they had a chance to really overhaul the system, they tried magic instead. Ed Week thought so much of the magical approach, they published a piece on it. Magic doesn't work. Somebody tell +Education Week that words like abracadabra and charterschools don't actually do anything.

Imagine that someone hated you (or your company) and wanted to make you look bad. So, he pretended to be a friend or colleague, went to your events, repeatedly asked you to meetings or lunch, gained your trust, and then spent two years recording priv

WTF?!?! This is jacked up to the max! It's my router, I should be allowed to modify it as I see fit, even if it has a SOC and even if that'd tweak the radio!

It's like telling me I can't beef up my computers specs or install a different OS on it [Microsoft tried that, people found ways around it and those ways were deemed totally LEGAL!] or like telling me I can't swap out an engine on my car ....

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

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:

Hubble Finds That the Nearest Quasar Is Powered by a Double Black Hole
From Hubblesite: Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have found that Markarian 231 (Mrk 231), the nearest galaxy to Earth that hosts a quasar, is powered by two central black holes furiously whirling about each other. The finding suggests that quasars — the brilliant cores of active galaxies — may commonly host two central supermassive black holes that fall into orbit about one another as a result of the merger between two galaxies. Like a pair of whirling skaters, the black-hole duo generates tremendous amounts of energy that makes the core of the host galaxy outshine the glow of the galaxy's population of billions of stars, which scientists then identify as quasars.

Introduction
Don't be offended if I don't circle you back.  I am unable to do so.  There is a bug with Google+ that makes it impossible to circle people, even if not at the 5000 limit.  I used to follow right back, but cannot do so anymore.

I am too lazy to decide what and what not will offend, rile, or otherwise discombobulate circled people, and thus generally post to Public just about everything.

I reshare puppies, kittens, or nice photos.

I reshare some jokes or funnies.

I reshare liberal or moderate politics.

I reshare science.

I reshare nerd/geek stuff.

I like Google+.  There seems to be a good cross over between different cultures.

Web DBA FileMaker Consultant.  I make applications that are data driven.  Lately, I am working mostly with FileMaker, but I have worked with lots of other stuff too.  I make iOS apps in my spare time, too.  I am working on learning Android, too.

In my spare time, I've been up to:
* Participate with the Patriot Guard Riders.
* Meaning to start some more volunteering
* Make iOS apps

I am also a DHMO educator, trying to bring awareness to the dangers of DiHydrogen MonOxide:
Its what forms ChemTrails™ among other things!

So, before the conference, I came up a day early, otherwise I would miss the first day. I also made time for the end of the conference too. I didn't make any accommodations plans for those nights though. So, when I arrived, I decided to do something a little different, and stay at this hostel for those nights. Lucky D's seems friendly and welcoming with a cool, young vibe.

Great Mexican food at a great price. Great quality, value, and selection. The chicken is great by itself or in tacos. You can easily mix and match what you want in your meal.

Great pizza. Great family atmosphere. They are a great family owned business, too. And their slogan is something like "The pizza with the secret".
