Star Wars meets Ukiyo-e
It's been roughly 350 years since the advent of Ukiyo-e, and 38 years since the original Star Wars film. Finally someone has brought the two together into an epic space opera that combines distinguished painting, excellent craftsmanship and, of course, the Force. The limited

Exciting!
The face of Tokyo continues to change. This week Tokyu Corp. unveiled plans for what a new skyscraper steps from Shibuya station will look like. In addition to crowd-drawing landmarks like the Hachiko sculpture and the chaotic Shibuya crossing, the station will now be getting a 230-meter skyscra

Stephen Curry giving Delly a dance lesson... & a Stank Face!
The NBA’s MVP drained seven 3-pointers on his way toward 37 points (17 in the fourth quarter) as the +Golden State Warriors took down the +Cleveland Cavaliers, 104-91. The Warriors take a 3-2 series lead as they pursue the franchise’s first NBA championship in 40 years in Cleveland for Game 6 on Tuesday.

LeBron James finished with 40 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists; collecting his 2nd triple-double of this Finals series. His incredible output helped keep the Cavs close through most of the game, but the Warriors pulled away later in the fourth quarter.

US Air Force Launches X-37B Space Plane on 4th Mystery Mission ... " The robotic X-37B space plane launched atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket today (May 20) at 11:05 a.m. EDT (1505 GMT) from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. You can see a video of the X-37B space plane's launch at http://bit.ly/1dmH4qA .

Most details about the space plane's orbital activities are classified, so it's unclear what exactly the X-37B will be doing as it zooms around Earth, or how long it will remain aloft. But Air Force officials have said that mission number four — known as Orbital Test Vehicle-4 (OTV-4) — will concentrate less on the X-37B itself and more on the gear the spacecraft is carrying to orbit.

... Also on board the Atlas V were 10 miniscule "cubesats," including the LightSail solar sail that was developed by the nonprofit Planetary Society. LightSail aims to prove out key solar-sailing technology ahead of a more ambitious orbital trial next year.

The Air Force owns two X-37B spacecraft, both of which were built by Boeing's Phantom Works division. Each space plane is just 29 feet long by 9.5 feet tall (8.8 by 2.9 meters), with a wingspan of 15 feet (4.6 m) and a payload bay the size of a pickup-truck bed. To put those dimensions into perspective, both X-37Bs could fit inside the payload bay of NASA's now-retired space shuttle orbiter.
The X-37B launches vertically and lands horizontally, on a runway, as the space shuttle did.
The secrecy surrounding X-37B missions has led to speculation in some quarters that the craft is some sort of space weapon — that it's designed to inspect and/or cripple hostile nations' satellites, for example. But Air Force officials have long refuted that notion, saying the X-37B is simply testing out technologies for reusable vehicles and future spacecraft. ..."

Stephen Curry Boxes Out Dwight Howard, Gets HUGE Rebound!
Keep in mind that Curry is 6'3" with shoes on (on a good day) and weighs no more than 180 lbs., while Dwight Howard is 6'11" and 270 lbs. Just another case for technique taking you places physical attributes can not!

A Really Good Read

One of my favorite moments taken several years ago. Sometimes things happen in front of your camera that you never anticipated, so always be sure you're ready and keep both eyes open!

The Stunning Secret of Politehnica Metro Station, Bucharest ... "The Politehnica metro station in Romania’s capital city of Bucharest, near the Politehnica University of Bucharest, sees relatively little traffic, but is still used by thousands of subway passengers each day. Its pink marble floors are trodden over by the feet of thousands of students of the Politehnica University and those of the Faculty of Journalism of the University of Bucharest, as well as the workers of the Apaca textiles factory and the employees of Vodafone Romania, whose headquarter is located nearby.

The station’s marble floors are stained with odd patterns, not usually seen in marble slabs. Yet, aside from the occasional casual glance, few passengers have paid any real attention to these markings. Fewer have stopped to gaze at and appreciate these shapes and fewer still have pondered on its mystery. Many would stop dead in their tracks if you are to tell them they are treading on 80-million-year-old fossils.

The Politehnica subway station was built in 1983, during the country’s communist rule, and it was decorated with limestone slabs harvested from the Apuseni Mountains. At that time nobody knew that the strange, beautiful shapes visible on the slabs are nothing but fossils of prehistoric beings. Many still don’t know about it. A Romanian history blogger shared the following picture describing the stone floors as “ornamental” and “decorative” with no inkling of the marble’s true origin. A search for “Politehnica station fossils” on one of the most popular image sharing website Flickr, draws a blank.

Most of these fossils belong to a group of organism called rudists, that lived in shallow marine environments from the Late Jurassic to the Late Cretaceous periods. The Apuseni Mountains were created during this time period due to the convergence of the Tisia and the Dacia microplates. As the plates collided, the mountain rose from the sea carrying all marine animals living in the shallow waters. Over millions of years their exoskeleton and bodies became fossilized in limestone.

A geology professor from the University of Bucharest said that all metro stations in Bucharest are covered with slabs of limestone containing fossils from different geological periods. Unfortunately, the state of preservation, density and visibility of these fossils are lower than those in the Politehnica metro station. Geologists agree that the fossils embedded in the marble slabs of the subway station has immeasurable scientific value.

According to a 2014 article published on Romania-Insider.com, Bucharest metro operator Metrorex plans to install interactive screens inside the station highlighting the station’s history and explaining the different fossils that will allow passengers and visitors to take “interactive paleontology classes inside the metro station.” ..."
