The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as Messier Object 104, M104 or NGC 4594) is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 9.55 Mpc (31,100,000 ly) from Earth. The galaxy has a diameter of approximately 15kpc (50,000 light-years), 30% the size of the Milky Way. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero. Astronomers initially thought that the halo was small and light, indicative of a spiral galaxy, but the Spitzer space telescope found that the halo around the Sombrero Galaxy is larger and more massive than previously thought, indicative of a giant elliptical galaxy. The galaxy has an apparent magnitude of +8.0, making it easily visible with amateur telescopes, and it is considered by some authors to be the brightest galaxy within a radius of 10 megaparsecs of the Milky Way. Its large bulge, its central supermassive black hole, and its dust lane all attract the attention of professional astronomers.

I got this totally beautiful & smooth natural yogurt made from sheep milk. Now I intend to make it myself. It has a very light texture.

Already made this amounts converter for its unit measures.

Last night I red this page & totally could not believe my eyes as I reached "The 17 proposed Sustainable Development Goals" POINTS. Anyone wants to share an opinion?

This project deserves some support.

It's about putting honey bees back to suburbs where they perhaps get less disease, and some even, no sprayed with pesticides. Please share.

I'll be sponsoring this project on kickstarter.com as well, they kick start it live next week (23rd Feb. 2015). The design contributes to keeping stronger bee colonies (in the sense of limiting manipulations within the hive.)

Cacao vs. Carob Comparison (nutritionally)

I found cacao superior. It has MUCH higher good mineral contents. Than there are those fighter-chemicals and antioxidants it contains.

Carob however isn't bitter in taste. No wonder, it has such a HUGE sugar amount! It must suit better for some deserts - no need to add other sweetener. Does anyone know if carob has any medicinal advantages?

Carob

Both share almost the same color and texture when powdered (the darker foods the better I was told).
