"Nebulas in the Wind"

The mighty Carina nebula shines like a flower blossom carried by the wind from the branches of a dead tree. The dimmer red nebulas such as the Running Chicken and Liberty nebula are like trailing petals. This image was taken along the shores of Yenyening lake, Western Australia. The dry salt lake is lined with dead trees that have succumbed to the harsh environment, but never the less some life manages to thrive.

Without any moon and with no bright Milkyway core to illuminate the foreground, a heavy amount of noise filtering was required to bring out any detail of the foreground. Perhaps it might've been better to leave the foreground as a silohuette, but its nice to be able to see something of the landscape.

I used an Skywatcher StarAdventurer sky tracking mount to take this 2 x panel mosaic. A Canon EOS6d (modified) was used through a Canon 85mm f/1.2 lens stopped down to f/3.2. All camera and lens settings were kept the same for both panels, and all shots were taken one immediately after the other. The tracking mount was used for the sky and turned off for the foreground panel. Stitching in PTGui, colour balance, noise reduction, saturation and some brightness / contrast adjustment in Photoshop. Details below.

Details as follows:

| 2018-12-08 | Yenyening Lakes, Western Australia | EOS6D modified | Canon 85mm f1.2 lens | @f/3.2 | UV/IR cut-filter | ISO1600 | 25s | 2 x panels | Skywatcher StarAdventurer mount |

Enjoy,
Will Vrbasso.

Flacco, 33, said he was “disappointed” that he’s now the backup quarterback, but he’ll do what he can to help the team win.

“I’m obviously disappointed I can’t be part of this team in the same capacity that I have been for a long time,” Flacco said. “I can’t say I was surprised.”

The YT page's description hits the key point so why change it?.
Trump's argument with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over the wall shows he has no interest in policy, he just wants to "have fights with Democrats ... on camera," says Ezra Klein."

Other things noted in the video.
Trump lies to himself and that leads to being delusional.
Trump has undermined any opportunity Mitch McConnell might have had to portray the government shutdown as being the fault of the Democrats, by boasting Trump would do it "and be proud"..

Trump isn't just a poor negotiator. He's the worst negotiator.
He's not a "winning TV personality" because he can't even win in a setting he's set up to try to embarrass his opponents.

Video 13 minutes 57 seconds and worth the time!*

The XYO network announced on Tuesday that it is sending the first blockchain satellite into space called the EtherX. The space journey is the result of their partnership with Spaceflight, a space industry leader.

The satellite will be sent to space using SpaceX’s Falcon 9. The project aims to decentralize the world’s location infrastructure, which is currently dominated by the Global Positioning System (GPS), owned by the US Air Force.

Clear evidence of a conspiracy conducted in a meeting between a publisher, a presidential candidate and his lawyer to hide the facts of the candidate's poor character from the voting public.
The publishing corporation has admitted to breaches of campaign finance laws (highlighted in bold in the quotes below).

It looks like the publisher dodged another proverbial bullet because despite Cohen intending to repay them money they paid Karen McDougall, he failed to do so.

Comments assembled from several reports on the above, follow:

[P]rosecutors on Wednesday [reported] that a tabloid publisher admitted to paying off a Playboy model, key participants in two hush-money schemes say the transactions were intended to protect Donald J. Trump’s campaign for president.

That leaves Mr. Trump in an increasingly isolated and legally precarious position, according to election law experts. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments made in 2016 to keep two women silent about alleged affairs are now firmly framed as illegal campaign contributions.

The above is from:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/12/nyregion/trump-american-media-michael-cohen.html

----------

...{T]he U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York announced that prosecutors had previously reached an agreement not to prosecute the National Enquirer’s parent company over its payment to kill Karen McDougal’s story about her alleged affair with President Trump.

As part of the agreement, American Media, Inc., admitted that it paid McDougal $150,000 in an attempt to influence the 2016 election, according to a statement from the U.S. attorney’s office.

“The Office also announced today that it has previously reached a non-prosecution agreement with AMI, in connection with AMI’s role in making the above-described $150,000 payment before the 2016 presidential election,” the U.S. attorney’s office said in a statement on Cohen’s sentencing. “As a part of the agreement, AMI admitted that it made the $150,000 payment in concert with a candidate’s presidential campaign, and in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the 2016 presidential election. AMI further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman’s story so as to prevent it from influencing the election.

Cohen was sentenced Wednesday for several charges, including campaign finance violations due to his role in arranging payments to McDougal and Stormy Daniels.

In McDougal’s case, Cohen worked with David Pecker, a Trump ally and CEO of AMI, to pay McDougal for the rights to her story about an alleged affair with Trump, though McDougal’s story about Trump was never published. Though Cohen initially planned to repay AMI for the catch-and-kill agreement, he never repaid the media company.

The agreement also acknowledges, among other things, AMI’s acceptance of responsibility, its substantial and important assistance in this investigation, and its agreement to provide cooperation in the future and implement specific improvements to its internal compliance to prevent future violations of the federal campaign finance laws.

----------

At least one unidentified campaign member joined Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in an August 2015 meeting with David Pecker, the publisher of the National Enquirer, to discuss suppressing negative news stories during the election, the U.S. said.

“You now have AMI admitting that the payments were made for the purpose of influencing the election,” said Robert Mintz, a former federal prosecutor who is now in private practice in New Jersey and isn’t involved in the case. “It’s a critical admission because, if true, it transforms the payment into a criminal violation as opposed to simply a private transaction.”

The above is from:

It contains a link to the published non-prosecution agreement:

----------

The "one other member of the campaign" in the meeting with AMI publisher David Pecker and Michael Cohen was.... Donald John Trump.

As a presidential candidate in August 2015, Donald Trump huddled with a longtime friend, media executive David Pecker, in his cluttered 26th floor Trump Tower office and made a request.
