Waxing toward the super Blue Moon - Above: Andy Bentley captured last night’s waxing moon (January 21, 2018; moon ~21.7% illuminated) through a misty sky. Tonight – January 22, 2018 – the moon exhibits a rather wide crescent phase in the evening sky. It’s now waxing toward a Blue Moon – the second of two full moons in one calendar month – on January 31, 2018. What’s more, this Blue Moon will be a supermoon, or generally closest to Earth for the month. And it’ll stage a total lunar eclipse. ...

On This Day In Space! Jan. 22, 2003: Pioneer 10 Beams Last Signal to Earth

Pioneer 10 was NASA's first mission to the outer planets. It was the first spacecraft to fly through the asteroid belt, the first to visit Jupiter, and the first to venture beyond the outer planets. The spacecraft is currently on its way out of the solar system and has traveled more than 10 billion miles away from Earth.

While it was originally intended to last just 21 months, Pioneer 10 kept collecting and transmitting data for more than 30 years before its radioisotope power supply decayed, and NASA could no longer contact it.

Brain plasticity (the ability of a brain to wire and rewire itself with a certain degree of flexibility) is a function of the dance between environment and organism. For instance; if a person uses an instrument over long periods of time it has an effect on the way the brain is then wired so to speak. On large scale population levels it can lead a certain ways of thinking where the brain is trained to acquire certain areas of emphasis to the exclusion of others that have real world implications on things like identity, ways of thinking and the way life is experienced.

Study suggests collectivism is associated with particular pattern of brain connectivity

From the article: “Cultural attitudes are mostly acquired during childhood and adolescence in family and school environments and we may not realize how these attitudes ‘dictate’ the mode of our thoughts and the pattern of our brain’s activity even in a state of rest”

Total Corruption - written in 2011, still relevant.
If a reactionary is someone who answers the questions of the future with the mistakes of the past, then I gotta report there are a lot of reactionaries in the USA today. Here as in Europe, the specters of racism and xenophobia awoke to hail the new millennium, fueling a right-wing political dynamic that goes beyond each repressive law or police abuse. We like to blame these regressive trends on the wing-nuts, the Tea Partyers, the folks rotting their brains with Fox and CNN in the famous “red states”; but there’s nowhere to hide across the political fence. Returning to the status quo of the Clinton years is equally reactionary, as the Obama administration has proven with its damped-down wars and compromised economic policies. Meanwhile, hyper-leftist attempts to rouse the (extreme) left against the (extreme) right are another part of the problem: Glenn Beck in reverse. Marxist thinking—the tradition I hail from—does not have to stop in the 1930s, or in the 1960s. But that’s what it’s doing. We’re failing to perceive the present in the light of our possible futures.

There are at least three basic facts that explain the fear and political chaos in the United States today. The first is continuously rising inequality, which shows no sign of abating when you know that for the 38 largest American corporations, the depression year of 2009 was the most profitable ever for investors and executives, who together raked in some $145 billion. Once a country that gradually equalized opportunity with a social escalator called the public university, the US is now on its way to developing a caste system whose realities can no longer be hidden by the provision of infinite credit...

The second basic fact is a sudden expansion of the powers of the federal government, brought on not only by the financial bailout but also by the gigantic budgets of the anti-terrorist campaigns and the Bush/Obama wars. This is interpreted as socialism by the reactionary right, and it’s laid at the feet of the Obama administration; but it’s a consequence of American-led neoliberal globalization that has intensified exploitation, exclusion, and instability all across the world. 9/11 was the first case of blowback, but even more threatening is the situation in neighboring Mexico, flooded by American guns and caught in the grip of brutal drug cartels...

The third thing behind the rise of US national-populism is looming geopolitical decline, essentially by way of deflation and capital flight to China, plus a further threat to the global monetary order that currently funnels worldwide savings to the US Treasury. The catastrophe scenario of an international shift away from US Treasury bonds is unlikely; but a falling dollar and the inability to float new bond issues would be enough to change the superpower status of the US. The public feels the danger, the Tea Party screams against the debt, and the ruling class uses it to impose the kind of austerity plans once reserved for Africa and Latin America (not to mention retaining Bush-era tax cuts for the rich). But in the face of all that, no progressive discourses produce a view to more positive outcomes.

World’s oldest known oxygen oasis discovered | #Geology #GeologyPage

In the Earth’s early history, several billion years ago, only traces of oxygen existed in the atmosphere and the oceans. Today’s air-breathing organisms could not have existed under those conditions.

One solution of depression is to take a medication prescribed by a doctor, however, many of these are addictive and have side effects, such as insomnia, nausea or emotional numbness. So, you may want to try a natural treatment first to see if your symptoms subside.
