What they don't mention is that Henrietta Leavitt didn't just categorize the stars, she invented the categorization scheme which is still used today and organized and managed a team of #stemwomen to do the work.
 
"The craziest thing of all is that if you wait long enough or look precisely enough, you’ll find that every star will undergo a period of variability in its life. Like many things in this Universe, the only constant is change."

Those constant, fixed points of light in the night sky — the stars — turn out not to be so constant if you looked with great precision at them. A star like our Sun varies in brightness, periodically, by about 0.1% over the span of a few years, but many stars vary by 99% or more from brightest to dimmest. For centuries, we knew of only a handful of these objects, yet now they’re known to be commonplace. Here's what causes their behavior and underlies it, along with the story of their discovery.
The “constant points of light” in the sky are often anything but.

"We always seek and welcome feedback from medical experts, but not from politicians."

“We will, of course, cooperate fully with any investigation, but important medical issues shouldn’t be politicized. This isn’t what people in our state want our elected officials to spend their time doing.” -- Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates Executive Director Laura Goodhue
 
Nothing but a witch hunt.
Who could have predicted this would happen? Right on schedule today, Rick Scott announced an "investigation" into Planned Parenthood clinics in Florida based on false information and unfounded allegations made in heavily edited and misleading videos distributed by an extremist "pro-life" organization. Gov. Rick Scott launched an investigation Wednesday into...

British police show, once again, that lethal violence isn't a necessary go-to response.

I'm confused. First. Hate crime. I get that. That sucks. But here is the thing I'm confused about: if these people think the stars and bars are so great, why do they throw them on the ground, or tie them to the front of their truck and go mudding or all the other things they do that look really disrespectful to an emblem they say represents them.
 
Several Confederate flags were found around the King Center and Ebenezer Baptist Church Thursday morning.

There's a homey atmosphere with toys to keep young kids occupied. Everyone there was kind. I would recommend it to anyone with a gentle heart.
