3D Mercury Transit
Image Credit & Copyright: Stefan Seip (TWAN)
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap160520.html

On May 9, innermost planet Mercury crossed IN FRONT of the Sun. Though pictures project the event in only two dimensions, a remarkable three dimensional perspective on the transit is possible by free viewing this stereo pair. The images were made 23 minutes apart and rotated so that Mercury's position shifts horizontally between the two. As a result, Mercury's orbital motion produced an exaggerated parallax simulating binocular vision. Between the two exposures, the appropriately named planet's speedy 47.4 kilometer per second orbital velocity actually carried it over 65,000 kilometers. Taken first, the left image is intended for the right eye, so a cross-eyed view is needed to see Mercury's tiny silhouette suspended in the foreground. Try it. Merging the text below the images helps.

Not the Cosmic Psychos

About a decade ago I belonged to a music site called E-music which gave me access to a wide variety of music from smaller and independent labels at a very reasonable cost. I discovered a lot of really good but quite obscure music through this service.

One of the groups I found through this service I refer to as “Not the Cosmic Psychos”. I give them this name as I purchased and downloaded a recording called “Self Totalled” by an Australian punk band called the Cosmic Psychos.

What I got was not the Cosmic Psychos though it was labelled as by them and the track names were the same as the ones on “Self Totalled”. What I received was a series of funky, laid back, electronic, jazzy music (for lack of a better genre name) which I quite enjoy.

I'd like to have more of this music. I have tried various apps that claim to identify music tracks but they have all failed with the Not the Cosmic Psychos. Nobody who has heard it has been able to tell me who the musicians really are.

Quite annoying

Having visited “Greenwich Clock Museum”, Cunk speaks to “science man” Stuart Clark, a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He tells her that time flows like water in a river and that moments in our life are the things floating in it. However, he adds, it could also be a psychological thing. Basically, nobody knows. Not even the experts. “It’ll always be an unknowable mystery,” she says, “like how a telephone works.”

Maybe time flows in chunks and there are cosmic stagehands that rearrange everything in between... like an animated cartoon.

Stump fire

First fire on an old tree stump we intend to burn down over time to make a fire pit.

Water conservation

Really like this idea
 
root canal 
Restoring a pre-Inca network of channels to ensure a steady flow of water from the mountains should help Lima meet some of its growing needs

The qanat system is another hydraulic system we would do well to rebuild.

Courier Post is useless A parcel came for me that needed to be signed for. It arrived before the business opened. Instead of attempting delivery later in the day as every other Courier company does, they took it back to their depot and sent me an email. I had to complete a form selecting whether to get it delivered in another day, pick it up from the Depot (wherever that may be) or to redirect it to another address. I selected to have it delivered tomorrow. No doubt they will attempt to deliver it before the business opens which means I will have to be there bloody early. I'm a trifle annoyed by this. For future orders I'll be requesting any other viable service be used other than Courier Post even if it is only a kid on a bicycle.
