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)

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.

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.

Dwyane Wade Leaving Chicago Bulls

Dwyane Wade is a free agent. Wade signed a two year contract with the Chicago Bulls last off-season. He played his first season in his hometown of Chicago last season. The Bulls bought out the second year of Wade's contract. Wade was suppose to earn around 24 million dollars in the second year of his contract with the Bulls. Sources reported that the Bulls gave Wade 16 million dollars.

Since Wade is good friends with Lebron James of the Cavs, people in the NBA believe that he most likely will play for the Cavs this upcoming season. Other teams that Wade could possibly play for this upcoming season are the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat, and the Oklahoma City Thunder.


What team do you think Wade will join?

Trump is Mentally Ill!

"Moyers: Some of the descriptions used to describe Trump—narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, paranoid personality disorder, delusional disorder, malignant narcissist—even some have suggested early forms of dementia—are difficult for lay people to grasp. Some experts say that it’s not one thing that’s wrong with him—there are a lot of things wrong with him and together they add up to what one of your colleagues calls “a scary witches brew, a toxic stew.”

“Trump has a mind that in many ways is always under duress, because he’s always seeking to be accepted, loved.”
Lifton: I think that’s very accurate. I agree that there’s an all-enveloping destructiveness in his character and in his psychological tendencies. But I’ve focused on what professionally I call solipsistic reality. Solipsistic reality means that the only reality he’s capable of embracing has to do with his own self and the perception by and protection of his own self. And for a president to be so bound in this isolated solipsistic reality could not be more dangerous for the country and for the world. In that sense, he does what psychotics do. Psychotics engage in, or frequently engage in a view of reality based only on the self. He’s not psychotic, but I think ultimately this solipsistic reality will be the source of his removal from the presidency."

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).

President Donald Trump banned or restricted visas for travel to the United States from eight countries on Sunday, the next step in what began as his travel ban from six Muslim nations.

The new presidential order keeps restrictions on five of those six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen — lifts restrictions on visitors from the Sudan and adds new restrictions on visitors and immigrants from Chad, North Korea and Venezuela.

The human brain, and that of animals, is lateralized –split in half for localized specialist function. With language more localised to the left, and attention more to the right. With each side also controlling opposite sides of vision and movement.

But while each side of the brain is responsible for different tasks, be careful not to oversimplify and conclude that logic is on the left, and creativity on the right - as if people can be left or right brained. In reality, creativity and logic require both hemispheres.
