Red moon view from Monrovia California. Oh, and that's Mars just to the right. Not sure what the white pin dot is just to the left of the moon. Either way, it was all simply beautiful.

Humans and our issues are but a spec in the bigger scheme of things.
 
This view of the twilight sky and Martian horizon taken by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover includes Earth as the brightest point of light in the night sky. Earth is a little left of center in the image. 

Researchers used the left eye camera of Curiosity's Mast Camera (Mastcam) to capture this scene about 80 minutes after sunset on the 529th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars (Jan. 31, 2014). The image has been processed to remove effects of cosmic rays.

A human observer with normal vision, if standing on Mars, could easily see Earth and the moon as two distinct, bright "evening stars." The distance between Earth and Mars when Curiosity took the photo was about 99 million miles (160 million kilometers).

Let me introduce you to my little friend...Turbo. I admit it, it freaked me out when I first saw it - this sicker is about as big as a baby's fist.

As long as you didn't have to share your lunch with "Turbo." I'd say it was a pretty unique and cool deal! :-)

We just launched a new website and I'm looking for feedback. As harsh as it might be, we're looking for feedback...please. Keep in mind that our business focus is to promote valuable events for entrepreneurs and upper-management professionals, and thus also support organizations promote quality events.

In advance, thank you.

Of course I'm supporting this...
 
Established in 2012, Giving Tuesday brings together global charities, families, community centers, students, and more for a day of giving. This year, Giving Tuesday will be held on Tuesday, December 3. +Google+ will provide an opportunity for individuals to give back - either by directly donating to nonprofits or by purchasing goods for good - by leveraging the Shoppable Hangouts app to provide interactive opportunities for charities to raise money and for brands to innovatively sell their products. For 12 hours, Google+ is partnering with +Mashable for #GivingTuesday to feature over 24 charities and brands that users can support. The Hangout will be streamed from the +Giving Tuesday page.

The Google+ Hangout-a-thon will create exciting and meaningful moments, encouraging viewers to get involved in every day philanthropy. Viewers also have the option to directly donate to the guest nonprofits and learn more about other #GivingTuesday participating partners. As social giving becomes a major innovation for fundraising, Google is providing a new opportunity for charitable organizations to share their stories in innovative and unique ways. 

The official schedule and list of participating organizations will be released shortly.
