"Using the Subaru Telescope atop Maunakea, researchers have identified 11 dwarf galaxies and two star-containing halos in the outer region of a large spiral galaxy 25 million light-years away from Earth. The findings, published in The Astrophysical Journal, provide new insight into how these 'tidal stellar streams' form around galaxies."

Microsoft's Skype App Pulled From Google Play And Apple's App Store In China

Chinese local authorities claim that the app does not comply with local laws. Google and Apple have since then taken action to remove the app from the Chinese app market. It is still available in other countries. It's a shame to see this happen -- what's next, all the messaging apps?

NFL looks for a way to side-step the anthem protest issue

Prior to 2009, you didn't see all the players at NFL games standing the sidelines during the national anthem for prime time games. Prior to that year, NFL players in such games stayed in the locker room, though on Sunday afternoon games the players were out on the sidelines. [1]

In 2009, the NFL set a new policy saying that, nope, players had to be out on the sidelines during the national anthem during prime time, and suggesting (but not mandating) that the players should stand during the anthem.

(There have been reports that the Defense Dept. paid the NFL to do this. The actual DoD actions, that have been documented, were payments to the NFL in 2012 for various patriotic displays at NFL games, itself a sketchy practice.)

The kneeling protests by NFL players during the anthem, protesting racism (esp. law enforcement) in America, have been highly controversial (which, indirectly, is kind of what you want protests to be). The president has been livid about it, fans (some at least) have been angry, the NFL owners have been unhappy about the brouhaha but haven't been willing to force the issue (perhaps because compelling people to act patriotic is, even if legal, also kind of sketchy).

Well, word is that the NFL owners may try to defuse the whole mess by simply going back to having the players stay in the locker room until after the national anthem. That will probably make all sorts of people unhappy, too, but its also an unhappiness that doesn't have a weekly set of visuals to go with it.

(Questioning the American compulsion to engage in a communal expression of patriotic fervor before sporting events apparently is not on the table. Why is there a big national anthem at football games and NASCAR races, but not before Formula 1 races or golf tournaments? What purpose of national interest or celebration of liberty does such a mandated display actually serve?)

Cinnamon turns up the heat on fat cells

New research from the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute has determined how a common holiday spice—cinnamon—might be enlisted in the fight against obesity. Scientists had previously observed that cinnamaldehyde, an essential oil that gives cinnamon its flavor, appeared to protect mice against obesity and hyperglycemia. But the mechanisms underlying the effect were not well understood. Researchers in the lab of Jun Wu, research assistant professor at the LSI, wanted to better understand cinnamaldehyde's action and determine whether it might be protective in humans, too. "Scientists were finding that this compound affected metabolism," said Wu, who also is an assistant professor of molecular and integrative physiology at the U-M Medical School. "So we wanted to figure out how—what pathway might be involved, what it looked like in mice and what it looked like in human cells." Their findings, which appear in the December issue of the journal Metabolism, indicated that cinnamaldehyde improves metabolic health by acting directly on fat cells, or adipocytes, inducing them to start burning energy through a process called thermogenesis.

Rumbling

A shot from gusting evening walks when the high wind was forcing sea waves to strike hard on shore. I push my tripod harder into the sand to fight with that strong gust. Sun was behind me lighting up low clouds tips in front of me and was about say good for that day.

Tianjara at sunset

A couple of days ago i became a little disoriented at the top off the escarpment and found myself in the wrong place. I stopped to take stock and watch the shadows move. Near me, the silhouette of a face took form and darkened. Then, the sun's horizontal rays hit the edge behind a waterfall and set the rock wall on fire.
The lens flare here is partly due to the sun but has taken on color from water vapor (a secondary/inverse rainbow?). The silhouette rock appeared to move slowly as the sun's rays moved to the horizontal.

A handheld HDR, lightly toned for structure, desaturated slightly in the red/magenta range.

Google adds a slew of new Assistant features and languages for app developers

Google took a key step toward making Assistant a more compelling experience, announcing a boatload of new features for app developers, including a new push notifications, daily updates and additional language support. Google has announced a bunch of new updates coming to Assistant today that should make it possible for developers to make more functional applications that better integrate with your Google Assistant devices.

International support: One of the biggest additions is support for new languages. Developers will now be able to write apps in Spanish (US, MX and ES), Italian, Portuguese (BR) and Indian English.

Speaker to phone transfer: Another major update is the ability to create applications that take advantage of having both a Google Home and a phone with Assistant, allowing Home devices to hand off requests to smartphones for completion of actions (like, say, paying for a sandwich you ordered on your Home or need to send a map). Google will also allow apps to recognize implicit requests, so that you don’t have to specifically call them out by name. It’s the difference between saying “turn off the lights” and “have the Philips Hue app turn off the lights.”

Badges for family-friendly apps: We're launching a new "For Families" badge on the Google Assistant, designed to help users find apps that are appropriate for all ages.

The ability to link accounts in the app has been improved as well — in the earlier build, users could only do it before engaging with the app. Now it can be accomplished whenever it’s most convenient. Oh, and the updated version of the Cancel command lets the app send a user a polite farewell before logging off, because courtesy is important.

Making it easier for users to find new apps for Assistant. Instead of apps that are presented now, the Assistant companion app is getting “What's new” and “What's trending” sections to help surface recent and popular integrations.

Re-engaging with your users
To keep users coming back to your app, day after day, we're adding some additional features that you can experiment with.

Daily updates: At the end of a great interaction with your app, a user might want to be notified of similar content from your app every day. To enable that we will add a suggestion chip prompting the user to sign up for a daily update.

Push notifications: We're launching a new push notification API, enabling your app to push asynchronous updates to users. For the day trader who's looking for the best time to sell stock options, or the frugal shopper waiting for the big sale to buy a new pair of shoes, these alerts will show up as system notifications on the phone(and later to the Assistant on voice-activated speakers like Google Home).

Directory analytics: To give you more insight into how users are interacting with your app.
