Say you publish articles, or books, or pamphlets. Say a lot of your work is tied up in hefty PDFs that don't look good on the web. You can still showcase your work in an appealing way on your websi...

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

Like a July 4 fireworks display, a young, glittering collection of stars looks like an aerial burst, as seen in this space wallpaper. The cluster is surrounded by clouds of interstellar gas and dust—the raw material for new star formation.

Trying this out. Already an ABP user, so it is to be seen if the two can play nice in Chrome.

Happy 4th!
 
Fireworks! Celebrants this Fourth of July will enjoy the dazzling lights and booming shock waves from the explosions of fireworks. A similarly styled event is taking place in the galaxy Messier 106. Energetic jets, which blast from Messier 106's central black hole, are heating up material in the galaxy and thus making it glow, like the ingredients in a firework. The jets also power shock waves that are driving gases out of the galaxy's interior.

A galaxy about 23 million light years away is the site of this impressive, ongoing fireworks. Rather than paper, powder and fire, this galactic light show involves a giant black hole, shock waves and vast reservoirs of gas.
This galactic fireworks display is taking place in NGC 4258, also known as M106, a spiral galaxy like the Milky Way. This galaxy is famous, however, for something that our galaxy doesn't have - two extra spiral arms that glow in X-ray, optical and radio light. These features, or anomalous arms, are not aligned with the plane of the galaxy, but instead intersect with it.
