Gaia’s 2nd data release: 1.7 billion stars! - Gaia’s view of our home galaxy, the Milky Way, in a 360 degree interactive view (click arrows in upper left) via ESA/Gaia/DPAC; ATG medialab. It was less than a century ago, in 1920, that astronomers were famously debating the nature of so-called spiral nebulae. Some believed they lay inside our own Milky Way galaxy and were, perhaps, forming solar systems. Others thought they were large and distant separate galaxies. Thus the wisest astronomers...

Phones cost close to or over $1000+ so this is no suprise...

During the experiment, conducted at the Vertical Gun Range at NASA's Ames Research Center in California, scientists fired marble-sized projectiles at the targets at speeds of 11,200 mph (18,000 km/h).

These projectiles had a similar composition to carbonaceous chondrites, a group of meteorites that come from ancient, water-rich asteroids. In the early stages of Earth's evolution, these asteroids frequently hit the planet at very high speeds. The experiment, described in a paper published online today (April 25) in the journal Science Advances, revealed that during such collisions, up to 30 percent of the water from the asteroid could get trapped in the debris created by the impact.

Aliens In The Grass -- Fort Collins, Colorado
This tiny Diamondback Moth ( Plutella xylostella ) was folded up in the blade of a wild tulip in my backyard, and I almost overlooked him because he looked like just a stray bit of debris. But when I peered closer, he looked like some sort of alien bird-of-prey creature with wings made of feathers, which you can see if you view this in light box mode. :-) Thanks to +Seth Burgess for the identification!

Exercise and depression

Regular exercise can reduce your risk of depression, no matter what your age or where you live, research suggests. In a new study, an international team of researchers analyzed data from 49 studies that included nearly 267,000 people in North America, Europe and Oceania. The study participants did not have any mental illnesses and were followed for an average of more than seven years. High levels of physical activity were associated with a lower risk of depression in all age groups during the follow-up, the investigators found. However, the new study was not designed to prove that exercise actually caused depression risk to drop. "This is the first global meta-analysis to establish that engaging in physical activity is beneficial for protecting the general population from developing depression," said study author Felipe Barreto Schuch, a professor at Universidade La Salle in Brazil.

Mother, wife, million-dollar patient: Keeping her alive is a full-time job - and good business for drug companies*

The swelling attacks come on without warning. Loukisha Olive-McCoy's lower lip puffs up; then her cheeks and jaw twist and pull, distorting her face into an involuntary grimace. Sometimes her tongue will fill up the back of her throat and choke off her breathing.

TL;DR — The Democratic party hand-picks centrists over progressives, has no vision​, doesn't give a shit about actual democracy.

“They squash progressive candidates. They destroy the diversity of ideas in their caucus. They keep ideas like ‘Medicare for All,’ free community college, or impeaching Donald Trump from having a significant role in the national conversation,” says Tillemann. “The issues that resonate most with voters are not the issues that the DCCC is telling candidates to focus on.”
...
The secretly taped audio recording, released here for the first time, reveals how senior Democratic officials have worked to crush competitive primaries and steer political resources, money, and other support to hand-picked candidates in key races across the country, long before the party publicly announces a preference. The invisible assistance boosts the preferred candidate in fundraising and endorsements, and then that fundraising success and those endorsements are used to justify national party support. Meanwhile, opponents of the party’s unspoken pick are driven into paranoia, wondering if they are merely imagining that unseen hands are working against them.
...
In races in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Texas, Nebraska, California, and beyond, progressive candidates are finding that the DCCC has mobilized support for moderate candidates with access to early campaign cash at the expense of progressives. As we’ve reported, many first-time candidates are told by the DCCC that before they can even be considered, they have to perform the “rolodex” test to show they can raise $250,000 or more from the contact list on their phone.
