Night out at The Standard

Sometimes you just need to have a champagne cocktail, put your feet in the water and enjoy the Los Angeles skyline.

Have a great weekend everyone!

A new analysis of 13 supernovae — including archived data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope — is helping astronomers explain how some young stars exploded sooner than expected, hurling them to a lonely place far from their host galaxies.

Astronomers hypothesize that a pair of supermassive black holes in the merging galaxies can provide the gravitational slingshot to rocket the binary stars into intergalactic space. Hubble observations reveal that nearly every galaxy has a massive black hole at its center.

According to astronomer Ryan Foley's scenario, after two galaxies merge, their black holes migrate to the center of the new galaxy, each with a trailing a cluster of stars.

As the black holes dance around each other, slowly getting closer, one of the binary stars in the black holes' entourage may wander too close to the other black hole. Many of these stars will be flung far away, and those ejected stars in surviving binary systems will orbit even closer after the encounter, which speeds up the merger.

Please join +Tony Darnell Dr.+Carol Christian and +Scott Lewis as they discuss these observations with lead investigator Dr. Ryan Foley of the University of Illinois.  As always, we welcome your questions and comments.

Supernovae found in "Wrong place at wrong time"

Scientists using the +Hubble Space Telescope as well as data from many other observatories have formulated a theory to explain why there have been observations of supernovae occurring billions of years before their predicted detonations. 

Read the full press release below, it's really freaking awesome!

It is interesting that a supernova has to conform to human beliefs.

For Science

Sometimes we feel utterly miserable for no definable reason. That's because #DepressionLies  

I absolutely love this comic series, and it has provided MANY amazing comics that I adore. I totally recommend Robot Hugs. Check it out!

  Депрессия - перезагрузка, переосмысление. Она присутствует всегда и ежечасно. Разница во времени ее действия. Возникает при: а)стрессах; б)неудачах; в)одиночестве; г)при чрезмерном "в себе копании" (типа: "я не красивый", "я не счастливый", "я полный неудачник" ...); д)при полной внешней удаче, но душой "ёжик"; е)при полном отсутствии выхода в создавшейся той или иной ситуации (по личному мнению); ж)при "загнанном" состоянии души; з)при отсутствии возможностей( типа: "душа просит широты, а возможности просто нет")...
    Из длительного состояния перезагрузки (не всякий человек может из этого состояния выйти самостоятельно) просто необходимо выйти и как можно побыстрее, чтобы это состояние не проглотило окончательно (это может быть опасным для организма)... Для этого - как говорят в народе - почти все средства хороши( желательно приличные иначе не рекомендуются другие, потому, что в таких состояниях можно "не заметить" "порога насыщения". Именно этот момент может стать опасным для индивида или окружающих). Рекомендации: отвлечь; "развеять"; стать для человека, попавшего в депрессию, надёжным "стержнем"; обучить или самостоятельно обучиться словам, позволяющим блокировать депрессию; у русских говорят: "Плюнь и забудь" (но не всегда срабатывает)...
  Это сложная тема... Автор комикса предлагает интересный момент для тех, кто соскучился или скучает. Тоже выход. Выходом может стать: хорошее и доброе слово или взгляд; интересный проект (например: просто пройтись по улице); даже присутствие другого человека, от которого веет добром, надёжностью, уверенностью... В такие моменты рекомендуется вспоминать о чём-нибудь особенно приятном: о хороших друзьях; о правильных, но смешных своих поступках; о том, что в мире много тех и таких, кому ещё хуже, страшнее или опаснее - при этом необходимо ощутить себя каплей океана, но не забывать русскую фразу: "ложка дёгтя может испортить бочку мёда" (что означает: можно сделать очень много хорошего, но в один миг стать плохим (слово плохое сказал или поступок плохой совершил) - сейчас делают поправку: если ты это сделал сознательно, а не по незнанию.); послушать пародистов типа Задорнова М. и так далее... Извините, что длинно... Зато по факту...

Bright Blue Star Clusters in Andromeda!

Today's amazing release by the +Hubble Space Telescope is also the topic of our #HubbleHangout  starting at 3pm ET. With the help of citizen scientists, astronomers have discovered young blue star clusters inside M31 - The Andromeda Galaxy.

Not only are they beautiful to see, but they give scientists better insight into the "Initial Mass Function (IMF)" that allows us to understand star formation in the Universe.

RSVP to today's show here: https://goo.gl/fDDnGu

Read more in the press release here: http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2015/18/

+Tony Darnell, Dr. +Carol Christian and I look forward to fielding your questions and comments with guests Dr. Anil Seth & Dr. Dan Weisz! See you then!

Saturday Brunch of Champions

Went to an amazing little diner in Echo Park with +Daphne Mir​​ for brunch, getting an egg white scramble with broccoli, asparagus and parmesan cheese, soyrizo, hash browns and sourdough toast... Followed with AMAZING Lemon Meyer pancakes with Crème fraîche, lemon curd and berry compote.

So. Effing. Delicious.

Have a great weekend, Plussers!

The Trumpster knows me too well!

Haha, for those of you who are a fan of the "Wisdom of Chopra" quote generator, you'll really love the Trump Generator which creates personalized insults from the walking hyperbole himself. 

It's like I finally realized my impostor syndrome was really my inner Trump saying arbitrary nonsense to get me down. :-p Enjoy!
Donald Trump insults your friends.

What has happened to First Amendment Rights? Actions, no opinions kill Democracy, yet that word is nowhere in the United States Constitution is it? So let's be fair, the object accused will always say, OUCH! Salaam.....

Never Underestimate the Power of a Woman Who Builds Spaceships

My shirts finally arrived! So thrilled that I could support the creators and show my unabashed pride of #WomenInSTEM.

I'm not sure if they're going to re-open purchasing options, but check it out at http://teespring.com/spaceship

Idiocracy comes to real life

Watching the crowds jump and cheer as Donald Trump interrupts Megyn Kelly during the debate, when she confronted him about his disgusting track record of talking to/about women was like watching Idiocracy in the absolute worst way. 

I was physically nauseous when I watched the clip... and the enormous amount of people cheering on Trump when he was being a terrible human being. What the hell is wrong with us people?

#GOPDebate   #Trump   #Misogyny   #Feminism   #Sexism   #MegynKelly  
In the first GOP debate, Megyn Kelly challenged Donald Trump on his treatment of women. His response shows how sexism really works.
