November 19, 2005-Michael and the kids stay at the Al Bustan Palace Hotel in Muscat.Here is a story from an Oman fan who met him there:

My name is Samira from Muscat and I'm 33 years old. I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson since I was four years old. When I was little I was a fan of Shakin’ Stevens also but somehow , I think it was in 1980, I fell in love with Michael's voice. The songs which I recall from back then are 'One day in your life and I can't help it. But then Thriller came out and got me started. God, I loved Michael Jackson from there onwards. I never get bored watching this clip but nowadays it's hard to get The Making of Thriller on DVD! Back in those years everything was on video tapes and yes, it was easy to get it.

Thriller also became my favourite album. I still have so many cassettes at home for it's hard to get this stuff on CDs here! I also started collecting his pictures from newspapers, magazines, posters etc and still do until this very day. I'm always looking forward to something new from Michael. His music is amazing. You can dance to the tune yet his music relaxes your mind. And I simply love his dance moves! This man was so gifted and talented.

I never saw Michael live in concert but I did watch all the concerts on DVD and wow they are magic. I never get bored watching the Bad and Dangerous tours on DVD. Here in my office I even set up a screen saver with Michael Jackson on it, too.

During all those years of being a fan I always said to myself that one day I will meet Michael Jackson in person. And believe it or not but my dream really did come true when Michael visited Oman in 2005.

At first it was just a rumour that he was in town but I didn't believe it! But as the rumours kept on I got suspicious. I knew that tracking Michael down, would be like mission impossible, but I thought if he indeed is here I just have to meet him!

So, my friend Fahad and I went to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. There we waited for hours & hours it soon became clear that Michael indeed was in the hotel. It was 16th of November, 2005, and my birthday was the following day. Though I didn't give up easily, I really wanted to meet my idol in person!

The following day (my birthday) I called the hotel and asked if it was possible to speak to Michael Jackson. Of course, the receptionist refused, and added that Michael didn't want to be disturbed.

So another day passed without any sight of Michael and I was growing desperate yet at the same time very determined so I called the hotel again. This time I asked the receptionist about Michael Jackson's whereabouts and luckily found out that Michael was going to be at the Al Bustan Place Hotel tomorrow!

Next day I was at my station in NSC (Network Service Centre), anxiously waiting by the clock, counting down the minutes, so that I could pursue my mission. Finally it was time and I went to the Al Bustan Place Hotel togeher with Fahad. We waited for so long but nothing happned. Though exhasted and tried I nevertheless decided to return the next day.

It was Sunday when I returned to wait in the lobby of the Al Bustan hotel. I prepared for a long wait but suddenly a security guard approached me. It was the same one that I saw at the Hyatt few days ago. He said, You haven't seen him yet?, Come with me and I'll introduce you! I froze and couldn't believe what he had just said to me.

But indeed, a few moments later, there he was wearing a red shirt and black trousers, his hair open and staring at me through his black sunglasses. My first reaction was to walk to Michael and give him a hand shake & kiss his cheeks. I said, Hi I'm Samira and I'm a big fan!

It really was a pity that I didn't have a camera with me, but it all happened so fast. However I managed to get his autograph, Love always, Michael Jackson. He wrote on the inside cover of his book. He was simply amazing and so kind. I will never forget that day of meeting my idol.

Finally my Mission Impossible was complete!

Egocentric hearing: Study clarifies how we can tell where a sound is coming from
A new UCL and University of Nottingham study has found that most neurons in the brain’s auditory cortex detect where a sound is coming from relative to the head, but some are tuned to a sound source’s actual position in the world.

The study, published in PLOS Biology, looked at whether head movements change the responses of neurons that track sound location.

“Our brains can represent sound location in either an egocentric manner – for example, when I can tell that a phone is ringing to my left – or in an allocentric manner – hearing that the phone is on the table. If I move my head, neurons with an egocentric focus will respond differently, as the phone’s position relative to my ears has changed, while the allocentric neurons will maintain their response,” said the study’s first author, Dr Stephen Town (UCL Ear Institute).

The researchers monitored ferrets while they moved around a small arena surrounded by speakers that emitted clicking sounds. Electrodes monitored the firing rates of neurons in the ferrets’ auditory cortex, while LEDs were used to track the animals’ movement.

Among the neurons under investigation that picked up sound location, the study showed that most displayed egocentric orientations by tracking where a sound source was relative to the animal’s head, but approximately 20% of the spatially tuned neurons instead tracked a sound source’s actual location in the world, independent of the ferret’s head movements.

The researchers also found that neurons were more sensitive to sound location when the ferret’s head was moving quickly.

“Most previous research into how we determine where a sound is coming from used participants with fixed head positions, which failed to differentiate between egocentric and allocentric tuning. Here we found that both types coexist in the auditory cortex,” said the study’s senior author, Dr Jennifer Bizley (UCL Ear Institute).

The researchers say their findings could be helpful in the design of technologies involving augmented or virtual reality.

“We often hear sounds presented though earphones as being inside our heads, but our findings suggest sound sources could be created to appear externally, in the world, if designers incorporate information about body and head movements,” Dr Town said.

Nearly a year into the Trump presidency, countries around the world are scrambling to adapt as the White House has struggled to fill key government positions, scaled back the State Department and upended old alliances. Now some nations are finding that even if they are frustrated by President Trump’s Washington, they can still prosper from robust relations with the California Republic and a constellation of like-minded U.S. cities, some of which are bigger than European countries.

Hubble’s Cosmic Search for a Missing Arm

This new picture of the week, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows the dwarf galaxy NGC 4625, located about 30 million light-years away in the constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs). The image, acquired with the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS), reveals the single major spiral arm of the galaxy, which gives it an asymmetric appearance. But why is there only one such spiral arm, when spiral galaxies normally have at least two?

Astronomers looked at NGC 4625 in different wavelengths in the hope of solving this cosmic mystery. Observations in the ultraviolet provided the first hint: in ultraviolet light the disk of the galaxy appears four times larger than on the image depicted here. An indication that there are a large number of very young and hot — hence mainly visible in the ultraviolet — stars forming in the outer regions of the galaxy. These young stars are only around one billion years old, about 10 times younger than the stars seen in the optical center. At first astronomers assumed that this high star formation rate was being triggered by the interaction with another, nearby dwarf galaxy called NGC 4618.

They speculated that NGC 4618 may be the culprit “harassing” NGC 4625, causing it to lose all but one spiral arm. In 2004 astronomers found proof for this claim. The gas in the outermost regions of the dwarf galaxy NGC 4618 has been strongly affected by NGC 4625.

Ask your Google Assistant on Google Home/Mini/Max to play your favorite shows on HBO NOW, CBS All Access, The CW

HBO Now and CBS All Access have both landed on Google Home in the past couple of months, adding to the already available Netflix support. Both of those require that you manually link your accounts to get things working, but The CW doesn’t require an account at all.

To cast content from The CW, simply ask Assistant on your phone or Google Home to play a specific show from the network. That might include “Arrow,” “The Flash,” or others like “Riverdale.”

Play some of your favorite shows and movies from subscription services like HBO NOW, CBS All Access and The CW. You can also cast from eligible Android phones and iPhones. Just start by saying, “Ok Google” or “Hey Google”:

- "Watch Curb Your Enthusiasm"
- “Play Star Trek: Discovery”
- “Turn the volume down”
- “Go back 30 seconds”
- “Play Riverdale”

So the next time your hands are full with popcorn, go ahead and forget the remote. Just say, “Hey Google,” sit back and enjoy.
