Happy birthday to Mr. Mark Hamill,
66 years completed today.

Mark Hamill was born in Oakland, California, on September 25, 1951, the fourth of seven children. His father was in the U.S. Navy, so the family relocated often, and Hamill grew up across the world, from California to New York to Japan. After Hamill graduated from high school overseas, his family moved back to the U.S. He enrolled at Los Angeles City College, where he studied drama and theater arts.

Mark Hamill has his place in cinema history as Luke Skywalker, the clean-cut hero of the first trilogy of the Star Wars film series: 'Star Wars' (1977), 'The Empire Strikes Back' (1980), and 'Return of the Jedi' (1983). Joined by Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford as Princess Leia and Han Solo, he fought his way through space to defeat Darth Vader and the evil empire.

Between filming his first Star Wars movie and 'The Empire Strikes Back', Mark Hamill was in an auto accident that left his upper lip scarred. The filmmakers accounted for the scar via an encounter with a violent snow creature near the start of the second film. The huge success of the films seemed to stunt Mark Hamill’s career for the next decade, though he did star in the kitsch classic 'Corvette Summer' (1978) and the war film 'The Big Red One' in 1980.

In the 1990s he began a robust second career doing voice work in computer and video games and animated TV shows, including 'Cow and Chicken', 'Batman: The Animated Series' (1992-95, with Hamill as The Joker), 'Justice League', 'Robot Chicken', 'Dragons: Riders of Berk' and many others. He also played himself on a memorable episode of 'The Simpsons', doing Guys and Dolls in a Springfield dinner theater.

With the acquisition of Lucasfilm by The Walt Disney Company, it was announced that there would be more Star Wars films starting with 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', which was released on December 18, 2015. Hamill appeared in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'. Hamill will reprise his role in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' which will be released on December 15, 2017.

Released in 1980, 'The Empire Strikes Back' is the most suspenseful, well-paced and most emotional entry of the Star Wars saga. It's the greatest of movie sequels and as far as it goes, it is everything a sequel to a great movie is supposed to be: a darker tone, more development with the characters, universe expanding with some new and greater additions and features.

The perfect adventure telling story that continues from where it left off from and delved deeper into the characters we all know and love today and introduced bigger places in the galaxy far far away that George Lucas originally introduced to us.

'The Empire Strikes Back' does advance the story line forward greatly, has a convincing and blossoming love story between Han Solo and Pricess Leia and gives us the showdown we want. It also introduces us to the legendary Yoda and a new key player in Lando Calrissian and has some breath taking special effects.

But we all know there will be an end to the epic saga, and we have always known this, ever since we first caught a glimpse of a younger, more innocent Luke working for his uncle on that deserted planet, so many years ago, when he could only dream of having adventures in other galaxies far, far away...

On The Briefing today, Dr. Mohler says the NFL & NBA controversies, about protesting the National Anthem and White House invitations, are a turning point in our national morality. Sports and politics are traditionally separated spheres of public life in the United States. President Trump directly challenging athletes is a dramatic change, which engages the Presidency in popular culture, at street level. Mohler questions the public tolerance for any collision of sports and politics.

Sports is being politicized. Every aspect of Western society is being politicized. He says that is not healthy for US society, or any society.

Mohler says this is a clash of morality and economics. And he seems to suggest the business of professional sports will defeat player activism.

This is uncharted territory for US patriotism, politics, and pro sports.

http://www.albertmohler.com/2017/09/25/briefing-09-25-17/

The Wallstreet Journal [Editorial Board] is the voice of big business and conservative politics in America and said today, "progressive forces of identity politics started poisoning America’s favorite spectator sport last year..."

"No doubt most Americans agree with Mr. Trump that they don’t want their flag disrespected, especially by millionaire athletes. But Mr. Trump never stops at reasonable, and so he called for kneeling players to be fired or suspended, and if the league didn’t comply for fans to 'boycott' the NFL."

Mr Trump "...plunged into the debate over head injuries without a speck of knowledge about the latest brain science, claiming that the NFL was 'ruining the game' by trying to stop dangerous physical hits. This is the kind of rant you’d hear in a lousy sports bar."

"...but disrespecting the national anthem puts partisanship above a symbol of nationhood that thousands have died for."

https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-politicization-of-everything-1506291118

I think Americans should boycott ALL the engines of the Progressive Pagan revolution, pro-sports, college sports, television and Hollywood. Of course facebook, Google, and most large corporations are no better, they tow the line for culture, in exchange for money, and fickle public opinions about tolerance and love.

Politics -the art of compromising is culturally informed by a new paganism, which is influenced by bad science, like Darwinian Evolution and Jungian psychology, and the invasive Eastern mysticism and liberal Christianity from 100 years ago. That's why NFL players think historic injustices entitle them to betray their own nation today -they don't know who God is, or what He has said in His word about races and nations: there is one blood (one race), and all governments are appointed by God, to protect and empower their citizens, but all will eventually attempt to physically oppose Jesus (Zechariah 12:3)

This team is frustrating. Where was this team last week? Mercedes Lewis catches 3 TD passes in one game? Bortles throws 4 TD passes in a 244 yd 0 turnover effort and leaves the game with a QBR of l.ike 125? Where was this last week? I had to listen to "experts" tell me all week the Jaguars were going to get shut out by this amazing Ravens team and I get 44-7 (it was nice to watch the Ravens celebrate scoring a TD against the Jaguar's seconed team defense like it was the super bowl)

A beautiful morning

Chelila, Bhutan

My last daybreak in Bhutan is over and the sun is climbing fast in a cloudless sky between mature conifers. Although these trees might look tired or damaged, the ground below is full of young trees working on reaching the very same height one day.

The forest floor was littered with spring flowers and I encountered several of the iconic species like the Kalij pheasant (Lophura leucomelanos) and Himalayan monal (Lophophorus impejanus).

Zion Canyon by Night

A view looking at the Milky Way over Zion National Park. I posted a daytime view from this same area in my American West Landscape Collection. Here I was there in the dark and photographed the Milky Way in the night sky over the valley.

The lights in the valley are from the lodge. It may look very bright here but is actually quite dim to the eye(they have excellent use of low level outdoor lights that point down). Here the use of ISO 25,600 made it much brighter since the Sony A7S is so sensitive at night.

The distant mountain is the Watchman and it is being lit by the small town of Springdale. I have shot that mountain several times from the bridge at Canyon Junction but this was a first from deeper in the canyon.

This striking image of Jupiter was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it performed its eighth flyby of the gas giant planet.

The image was taken on Sept. 1, 2017 at 2:58 p.m. PDT (5:58 p.m. EDT). At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was 4,707 miles (7,576 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a latitude of about -17.4 degrees.

Citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt processed this image using data from the JunoCam imager. Points of interest are “Whale's Tail” and "Dan's Spot.”

JunoCam's raw images are available for the public to peruse and process into image products at:

Massive Shell-Expelling Star G79.29+0.46

Image Credit: NASA, Spitzer Space Telescope, WISE; Processing & License : Judy Schmidt

Explanation: Stars this volatile are quite rare. Captured in the midst of dust clouds and visible to the right and above center is massive G79.29+0.46, one of less than 100 luminous blue variable stars (LBVs) currently known in our Galaxy. LBVs expel shells of gas and may lose even the mass of Jupiter over 100 years. The star, itself bright and blue, is shrouded in dust and so not seen in visible light. The dying star appears green and surrounded by red shells, though, in this mapped-color infrared picture combining images from NASA's Spitzer Space Observatory and NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer. G79.29+0.46 is located in the star-forming Cygnus X region of our Galaxy. Why G79.29+0.46 is so volatile, how long it will remain in the LBV phase, and when it will explode in a supernova is not known.
