It is August 6th, 2015. Seventy years ago an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. This bomb had the equivalent energy of about 20,000 tons of TNT. This HUGE amount of energy was generated by converting one GRAM of matter into energy. (One gram of matter is about the mass of ONE PAPER CLIP !!!)

Coyote Encounter 12/29/2014 3:00 am EST
I was  walking my German Shepherd a few hours ago.  (Heck, I'm retired and can keep these ultra-late hours.)  While walking down a street heading to a marsh not far from my home, my dog Bree started barking and within about 2 seconds I saw what caused her to bark - a coyote! Surprisingly, the coyote kept slowly approaching.  My dog Bree was in no mood to run away and neither was I for that matter. Still, my big fear was for the neighbors.  (German Shepherd's barking is somewhat LOUD and it was 3:00 am!!)  So, not wanting to turn my back on a coyote I walked backward up the street with Bree constantly facing and barking at the coyote.
Unlike what you see on the news, this was an interesting and uneventful encounter. Still I thought it would be worth sharing this story with my Google+ friends.

I just finished a page on my website concerning how to draw the taijitu.  (yes, it's what most people call the "yin yang" symbol).  You can easily make this with your own computer.  http://www.1728.org/taijitu.htm
