This is the podcast you are looking for. Thank the Force it's Friday!

Rebel Force Radio: 9.22.17

We have fresh info about THE LAST JEDI, specifically Porgs and their delectability, from DK’s new book “Star Wars Made Easy”.  Mark Hamill saves the Disney Company the trouble by announcing the release date for the next trailer for EPISODE IX on Twitter…Then he takes it back! We dig deep to see if there is any truth behind Mark’s “joke”. Lucasfilm announces who will be their promotional partners for THE LAST JEDI and discuss the future for Disney’s plan to stream their properties independently, including STAR WARS. We speculate what that will mean financially for the company and how it will effect fans. Plus, listener voice mail, space horses, and we present a snack review for Pop Chips Star Wars Galaxy Puffs that goes horribly south.

Strictly Speaking Can't! Natural Language Won't?
Physics is only complex, because it's in someone's interest to have it that way. The way to understanding, even if you don't understand science, was paved with words. Even if those words led only to a symbolic form of understanding.

Common ordinary language is quite capable of explaining physics. Mathematics is simply more precise than common language. Modern Mathematics pays the price for that precision by being overly complex and subservient to causal and compositional relations. These are limitations that metaphysics and philosophy do not have.

Words in language have a structure that mathematics alone will never see as it looks for their structure and dynamics in the wrong places and in the wrong ways. Modern pure mathematics lacks an underlying expression of inherent purpose in its 'tool set'.

With natural language we are even able to cross the 'event horizon' into interiority (where unity makes its journey through the non-dual into the causal realm). It is a place where mathematics may also 'visit' and investigate, but only with some metaphysical foundation to navigate with. The 'landscape' is very different there... where even time and space 'behave' (manifest) differently. Yet common language can take us there! Why? It's made of the 'right stuff'!

The mono-logical gaze with its incipient ontological foundation, as found in (modern) pure mathematics, is too myopic. That's why languages such as Category Theory, although subtle and general in nature, even lose their way. They can tell us how we got there, but none can tell us why we wanted to get there in the first place!

It's easy to expose modern corporate science's (mainstream) limitations with this limited tool set - you need simply ask questions like: "What in my methodology inherently expresses why am I looking in here?" (what purpose) or "What assumptions am I making that I'm not even aware of?" or "Why does it choose to do that? and you're already there where ontology falls flat on its face.

Even questions like these are met with disdain, intolerance and ridicule (the shadow knows it can't see them and wills to banish what it cannot)! And that's where science begins to resemble religion (psyence).

Those are also some of the reasons why philosophers and philosophy have almost disappeared from the mainstream. I'll give you a few philosophical hints to pique your interest.

Why do they call it Chaos Theory and not Cosmos Theory?
Why coincidence and not synchronicity?
Why entropy and not centropy?
...
Why particle and not field?
(many more examples...)

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, who speculated to reporters in New York that the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, might be considering carrying out “the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific.” These threats don’t necessarily suggest that North Korea will detonate a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific imminently, but it’s not impossible. Ri’s allusion to Kim’s power to choose a course of action is similar to North Korea’s August threat against Guam, which was followed by missile tests but none along the lines of those that had been threatened.

Enchanted forest

Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Svartskog, Norway

This is the largest I’ve found this season and it measures 20 cm across, but can be even 30 cm.

If only this species knew how famous and iconic it is among humans!

Of all the fungi species this is the most famous of all – seen in movies, paintings and drawings of fairy tales and books – even in souvenir shops and some furniture and nick-nacks stores, but I think you won’t find it at IKEA.

The species has so many powerful characteristic, but the visual is the first impression and what an impact it has when you enter into a spruce forest where the floor and the roots are completely covered in soft dense moss. The light is dim and thus the bright colors of this mushroom brightens up the surrounding like a magic lantern.

It is truly magic that from the soil this giant appears, grows and shines, then disappears to perhaps not be seen at the same location for many years.

No wonder people throughout history have had a special relationship with this one and weaved it into their lives, be it drawing, painting and art.

I for one had to sit here with it for some time to just absorb the magic of the place, watching all the insects visiting it, the sounds of the birds and the rustling of the foliage high above.
And then it happened just as it did with my previous fly agaric encounter – a shrew foraged just a few meters away from me. So tiny and so energetic.

Enchanted forest indeed.

ScienceCasts 、Riding the Slingshot to Bennu 、。。
By science@nasa 、。。

Gravity’s pull is being used to help propel a small spacecraft known as OSIRIS-REx to a near-Earth asteroid called Bennu 、。。

We’re all familiar with vehicles that move by using wind, solar energy, gas, or electricity. But occasionally, vehicles are able to use the most efficient and powerful force of all Gravity 、。。

Gravity’s pull is being used to help propel a small spacecraft known as OSIRIS-REx to a near-Earth asteroid called Bennu. The mission? .. Bring back at least a couple ounces of the asteroid so scientists can explore how planets formed and life began 、。。

Gravity is the key to getting this spacecraft to Bennu .. For decades, astronomers observed how a planet’s gravity could move large objects, like comets, out of their orbit 、。。

Then, in 1974, NASA’s Mariner 10 became the first spacecraft to employ the slingshot effect, also known as a gravity assist, to reach another planet .. The gravity of Venus was used to help Mariner 10 reach Mercury .. Now, NASA scientists and engineers are using Earth’s gravity to slingshot OSIRIS-REx on to Bennu, a relatively small asteroid about the height of the Empire State Building 、。。

There are a number of benefits to using gravity to propel OSIRIS-REx to Bennu 、。。

Mike Moreau, the OSIRIS-REx Flight Dynamics Manager at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland says, “Using the Earth Gravity Assist opens up trajectory options that use less fuel .. In this case, the Earth flyby is changing the plane of OSIRIS-REx’s orbit by approximately 6 degrees, which will align the spacecraft with the orbit of Bennu.” 、。。

Jeff Grossman, OSIRIS-REx Program Scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC, adds, “The spacecraft’s long path to Bennu, including the Earth Gravity Assist, was carefully chosen to allow it to reach the asteroid, conduct all of the necessary rendezvous maneuvers, and get back to Earth within the amount of fuel the spacecraft can carry onboard.” 、。。

As the spacecraft approaches Earth, it will receive an increasing gravitational tug from our planet .. It will essentially steal some momentum from the planet and in the process, change its speed and direction 、。。

In the months leading up to the gravity assist, the spacecraft’s thrusters were fired on two different occasions to adjust the precise target and time of the flyby .. The flyby was designed to make the precise velocity change needed to arrive at Bennu in the fall of 2018 、。。

Moreau notes, “OSIRIS-REx will fly by the Earth at an altitude of 10,700 miles (17,200 km) and will be traveling too fast to be completely captured by Earth’s gravity.” 、。。

So how much kick does Earth’s gravity add to the spacecraft? 8,500 miles an hour, without having to burn any fuel. Now that’s the ultimate ride 、。。

Jeffrey Grossman 、。。

Jeffrey Grossman .. is an American engineer currently the Morton and Claire Goulder and Family Professor in Environmental Systems at Massachusetts Institute of Technology 、。。

Surprise!! WatchOS 4 slows down every Apple Watch except the new one

I was afraid this would happen. As soon as I updated my Apple Watch (Series 2), I started to notice a huge drop off in latency and performance. It’s just like how it used to be with iPhones. Apple releases an update for a previous device and it ruins the software performance. I should’ve known this would happen but it really sucks to say the least. Here’s an example:

I receive a notification on my watch from iMessage. I get the occasional tap on my wrist. I go to raise my wrist to read he notification and the screen doesn’t even light up. I do this awkward flick with my wrist to light up the display. I finally get the display on and it’s on my home watch face. I sit for about a half a second and the notification finally presents itself.

That’s only the half of it, but I’ll spare you.

Is anyone else experiencing this sudden slow down? What are the chances the performance will be better in WatchOS 4.1?

Lying tropes aimed at the audience = simpler

Internet service providers like to make a lot of claims about upload and download speeds when you sign up, but do you ever wonder how those numbers compare to the speeds you’re actually getting once your connection is set up? These alternative browser-based speed tests will help you determine your upload and download speeds, as well as "identify other issues with your network" (goo.gl/FbpQY6), such as packet loss, latency issues, or physical connection problems. Here are several of our favorite internet speed tests, each of which is dependent on the kind of data and interface you’re looking for.
