So much for government of the people, by the people, for the people.

It still is a government for the people. The question is - which ones?

Thanks. Conclusion is opinion. I am surprised that opinion couched in saintliness shows itself herein .:):)
I thought the Euro prejudice was quite clever.

seems legit
 
If there is one animal that I love more than cats, it is the elephant. Unfortunately I do not have a yard or house large enough for elephant companions and besides I already asked and my wife said no.

It is legit. Elephant art is well known.

How do astronomers measure the distance to stars? Is it accurate?  

In order to calculate how far away a star is, astronomers use a method called parallax. Because of the Earth's revolution about the sun, near stars seem to shift their position against the farther stars. This is called parallax shift. By observing the distance of the shift and knowing the diameter of the Earth's orbit, astronomers are able to calculate the parallax angle across the sky.
The smaller the parallax shift, the farther away from earth the star is. This method is only accurate for stars within a few hundred light-years of Earth. When the stars are very far away, the parallax shift is too small to measure.

The method of measuring distance to stars beyond 100 light-years is to use Cepheid variable stars. These stars change in brightness over time, which allows astronomers to figure out the true brightness. Comparing the apparent brightness of the star to the true brightness allows the astronomer to calculate the distance to the star. This method was discovered by American astronomer Henrietta Leavitt in 1912 and used in the early part of the century to find distances to many globular clusters.

Scientists have constructed a new interactive panorama of our galaxy from more than 2 million infrared snapshots taken over the past 10 years by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. Learn more at http://astronomy.com/news/2014/03/spitzer-telescope-brings-360-view-of-galaxy-to-our-fingertips

Hypervelocity Stars

Everyone knows that shooting stars are just meteors entering the atmosphere, right? If you didn’t, congratulations—you just failed the fourth grade. What some people don’t know, however, is that real shooting stars exist as well; they’re called hypervelocity stars. These are big, fiery balls of gas rocketing through space at millions of miles per hour.When a binary star system is gobbled down by the supermassive black hole (that’s the scientific term, by the way) at the center of a galaxy, one of the two partners is consumed, while the other is ejected at high speed. Just try to imagine a huge ball of gas, four times the size of our sun, hurtling out from our galaxy at millions of miles per hour.
