Maybe its just my personal preference. Especially after seeing Steph in 2014/15 and 2015/16. I just think its hard to do what Steph did, which was take a step back and welcome another Superstar. Steph still managed to lead his team in regular season Ppg, Apg, 3P%, FT% and PER. And in the Finals he had a higher Rpg, Apg and Spg. Not to mention Steph's taken advantage of his shooting and ballhandling skills and used them very well. Also, Steph started that Golden State Warriors team. He led them to a title back in 2014/15 and shouldve won Finals MVP. I remember last year everyone was ranking Steph ahead of Durant but now its like everyones forgotten what Steph cant truly do. Its just my opinion though, I'll still respect you even if you rank Durant ahead.
Not to mention Durant's never had a 2-year stretch like Steph's from 2014/15 to 2015/16.
(Both blew 3-1 leads so never use that argument).

Solar Eclipse 2017 - Low-tech with great results

In this animation of images made by +Helen Read you can see today's Solar eclipse (https://goo.gl/ztB3Yo) with a maximum coverage of about 60% at her location.

Today you will of course be flooded with images of the solar eclipse (and with good reason, it really is interesting!), but I like these images because they show what kind of results you can get, even with relatively simple technology.

Read here what Helen said about making this animation:

The images were taken using an Android smartphone (Moto X Pure Edition) held up to a 28 mm (2" diameter) eyepiece on an 8" Dobsonian telescope. The only processing I did was to crop the images (and flip them to reverse the mirror image coming from the Dob). I used the Google Photos animation tool to make the animation, easy peasy.

I have an adapter for mounting my phone on a 1.25" telescope eyepiece but couldn't get the entire Sun in the field of view that way, so I just held the phone by hand over a 2" eyepiece. The exposure was hit or miss, but you can nonetheless see sunspots in some of the frames.

I would say the result is quite impressive!

In recent decades, empathy research has blossomed into a vibrant and multidisciplinary field of study. The social neuroscience approach to the subject is premised on the idea that studying empathy at multiple levels (biological, cognitive, and social) will lead to a more comprehensive understanding of how other people’s thoughts and feelings can affect our own thoughts, feelings, and behavior. In these cutting-edge contributions, leading advocates of the multilevel approach view empathy from the perspectives of social, cognitive, developmental and clinical psychology and cognitive/affective neuroscience. Chapters include a critical examination of the various definitions of the empathy construct; surveys of major research traditions based on these differing views (including empathy as emotional contagion, as the projection of one’s own thoughts and feelings, and as a fundamental aspect of social development); clinical and applied perspectives, including psychotherapy and the study of empathy for other people’s pain; various neuroscience perspectives; and discussions of empathy’s evolutionary and neuroanatomical histories, with a special focus on neuroanatomical continuities and differences across the phylogenetic spectrum. The new discipline of social neuroscience bridges disciplines and levels of analysis. In this volume, the contributors’ state-of-the-art investigations of empathy from a social neuroscience perspective vividly illustrate the potential benefits of such cross-disciplinary integration.

A solar prominence (also known as a filament when viewed against the solar disk) is a large, bright feature extending outward from the Sun's surface. Prominences are anchored to the Sun's surface in the photosphere, and extend outwards into the Sun's hot outer atmosphere, called the corona. During a total eclipse, these prominences, which appear as pink fiery features here, extend out from the black disc of the moon. The amount seen depends on how active the sun is when the eclipse happens.

The Great American Eclipse

Today's eclipse was the first total solar eclipse visible from most of the continental United States since 1979. Millions of people travelled to experience the celestial event along the 70-mile-wide path of totality that spanned the width of the country from Oregon to South Carolina.

This high resolution imagery of the solar eclipse passing over the United States was captured by the GOES-16 satellite. It is the first of the next generation of geosynchronous environmental satellites jointly operated by NASA and NOAA that will provide atmospheric and surface measurements of Earth. Data from the GOES system is used for weather forecasting, severe storm tracking, space weather monitoring, and meteorological research.

Afternoon slump in reward response

Activation of a reward-processing brain region peaks in the morning and evening and dips at 2 p.m., finds a study of healthy young men published in The Journal of Neuroscience. This finding may parallel the drop in alertness people tend to feel in mid-afternoon. Greg Murray and colleagues compared activation of the brain's reward system in 16 men during a gambling task at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. They found that activation in the left putamen was lowest in the early afternoon. The result contrasts with previous research showing that people report being in the best mood—a subjective measure of reward activation—at this time. The authors suggest that activation is greater in the morning and evening because rewards are not expected at these times. Understanding the timing of reward response could have implications for the treatment of disorders in which symptoms fluctuate throughout the day, such as depression, substance abuse and sleep disturbances. This work also calls into question neuroimaging studies that do not control for or report the time of day when scanning took place.

Say hello to the lab animal holodeck. "Scientists have devised a virtual reality platform for lab animals. Let that sink in. Zebrafish have swum with the aliens from the video game Space Invaders, mice were afraid of virtual heights, and fruit flies circled illusory obstacles.

This new holodeck for animals can help researchers see how freely-moving animals respond to a variety of illusions—work that could help scientists better understand human genes and brain circuitry, researchers say. The researchers, from the Vienna Biocenter in Austria, detailed their findings in today’s edition of the journal Nature Methods."

Here is a copy of the planned "protests" riots that ANTIFA and BLM as well as other George Soros paid rioters are planning. Please remember it is up to us to protect our neighborhoods, not the polices job. If they are given "stand down orders" and obey YOU are the last line of defense. Use it wisely and remember to say NOT IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD. God Bless you all, stay safe, watch your six, and keep your powder dry. An Armed society is a polite society.
