A crowd sourced solution to food waste. 
Instead of having 40 of our food go straight into the trash can could this app make sure it goes to people who want it?

It's #BlackFriday, but for us, it's the 2nd annual #BlackHoleFriday. Today, we'll post pics & info about black holes.

Astronomers using data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and ground observation have found an unlikely object in an improbable place -- a monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known.

The black hole is five times the mass of the one at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. It is inside one of the densest galaxies known to date -- the M60-UCD1 dwarf galaxy that crams 140 million stars within a diameter of about 300 light-years, which is only 1/500th of our galaxy’s diameter.

If you lived inside this dwarf galaxy, the night sky would dazzle with at least 1 million stars visible to the naked eye. Our nighttime sky as seen from Earth’s surface shows 4,000 stars.

The finding implies there are many other compact galaxies in the universe that contain supermassive black holes. The observation also suggests dwarf galaxies may actually be the stripped remnants of larger galaxies that were torn apart during collisions with other galaxies rather than small islands of stars born in isolation.

Seen here is an artist's view of M60-UCD1 black hole.

I'll venture that the massive black hole at this galaxy's center is a result of millions of years of eating stars and planets. That galaxy must have been a lot larger a long time ago (hence, the black hole was smaller..?)

+Dan Herbert  you should do the Black River Virtual Photo Walk.
 
Walk the Walk for those who can't
+Virtual Photo Walks™ is a project to allow people using Google+ to be interactive citizens again. Utilizing the hangout feature and smart phones, people are able to visit and interact with smart phone enabled photographers to see places and people they use to, see things that they might not have had the chance to see.

Yeah you might need a front facing camera on your phone. I don't know if your model has that or not. You can also get a wifi SD card that can upload to your phone.

Yeah it was a brutal course, verging on the absurd. Sorry for not updating but my phone went wonky after awhile and so did my brain. I'll get a proper update out shortly. We finished in 6th place at 26 hrs. The first place team was a couple of hours ahead of us.
