Rep. Frederica Wilson told NBC Miami that she heard the president's comment to Sgt. La David T. Johnson's widow, Myeshia, on a speakerphone as they traveled together to meet his body on Tuesday.

"He said, 'But you know he must've known what he signed up for,'" the Democrat recounted Trump saying more than once during the call to express his sympathy. According to Wilson, the conversation lasted somewhere from three to five minutes.

🇺🇲️ Formula 1 United States Grand Prix 🇺🇲️ Timetable

Howdy y'all 👋 Don't forget to set your clocks for this weekend's #USGP in Austin. Here are the official #F1 running times in both local Austin time and Central European Time (CET).

To those of you in Europe, let's stay up late and have some fun🤣 To those of you in the US, "Yay! Finally, a race during the day time!" and to those of you in Asia and the Pacific ... you will definitely need several alarm clocks ⏰⏰⏰
Also, if you are too familiar with the gaps between each session, please be aware that the Saturday between FP3 and Qualifying is 4 hours, which is one hour longer than usual.

Tomorrow is #MediaDay for the drivers as well as track walks, engineer meetings, and garage/car setups, so we'll be bringing you more information from the track!

Hocus Pocus writer Mick Garris began his relationship with the legendary Michael Jackson when he and his wife had the opportunity to play extras in the famous “Thriller” music video.

“I’m really fortunate to have been able to work with, and become friends with, Michael Jackson,” Garris said on Entertainment Weekly: The Show. “It was right after American Werewolf — Michael had seen that and had been blown away by it. He wanted to do something on film like that. Michael was very frightened of horror films and was fascinated by the makeup of it.”

Though Michael Jackson apparently didn’t remember Garris’ extra work on “Thriller,” the two got to work together extensively on the 35-minute “Ghosts.” Horror expert Stephen King linked the two together after the pop superstar pitched his original idea to the author. Though the final product did take quite a bit of time and money, Garris stands by the results.

“It had a very large transformation over the course of it and eventually became by far the most expensive music video ever made,” he says. “We shot for two weeks and never got into the music video part because when you work ‘Michael hours,’ they’re not the same as regular hours. By the time everything shut down, we’d spent $7 million dollars. It ended up coming in at about $15 million dollars, all of it out of Michael’s pocket. It became this 35-minute — what do you call it? It’s not really a short, it’s not a music video, but it’s something unique.”

Skogafoss, Iceland

The famous Skogafoss waterfall on Iceland's south-coast. One of the more famous waterfalls in Iceland, and it's easy to see why. This 60m high waterfall is not just beautiful, it's easily accessible, and easily admirable from below and above. There's a legend here at Skogafoss that there is treasure buried behind the fall, in a cave. It's said that Þrasi Þórólfsson (one of the first viking settlers in the region) buried the chest here when he arrived.

“The truth is that, more than any other observatory in history, the Hubble Space Telescope has changed how we view the Universe. Although other ground-based and space-based observatories have been built and will be flying that surpass Hubble on a number of fronts, for some classes of observing, it’s still the best tool humanity has ever created. But by the very nature of its orbit, not only is its lifetime finite, but its demise will come in a horrific, potentially dangerous fashion if we do nothing. Saving it for further use is a long-term project that requires planning now. Hubble is falling, and if we don’t take the steps to catch it soon, it will be too late.”

Orbiting at hundreds of miles above Earth’s atmosphere, you’d think the Hubble Space Telescope would be safe and stable for a long time. But despite our definitions, Earth’s atmosphere doesn’t “end” and space doesn’t “begin” when we get 60 miles (100 kilometers) up. Instead, Earth’s atmosphere continues, albeit tenuously, for incredible distances, until it eventually merges with the solar wind. It’s the fourth (of five) layers that contains the Hubble Space Telescope: the thermosphere. Although each oxygen molecule might travel for a kilometer before striking another, the presence of these molecules is enough to slowly produce a drag on Hubble. Over the timespan of years and decades, it loses altitude and begins to fall. If we do nothing, then by the late 2020s to the mid-2030s, it will uncontrollably de-orbit on its own. Our greatest optical observatory will be lost, and there are no plans to save it.

Come learn how the Hubble Space Telescope is falling, what we can do, and why we need to act now.

Data: Input/Output

From a certain perspective the eyes are the input channel (i.e. data) that allows the brain to receive information and then create output (i.e. action). This is a fascinating extension of the concept - https://goo.gl/LY76uV, whereby the input data affects language. #awesome #mindblown

Researchers want to heal the brain. Should they enhance it as well?

'Despite obvious benefits for people with otherwise untreatable conditions, there could be downsides to brain-machine interfaces being developed to treat disease or drive prosthetic limbs. As researchers get better at building interfaces and understanding the language of the brain, the possibility arises that science could enhance our senses and even our intelligence.

[...]

William Newsome, a professor of neurobiology and director of the Stanford Neurosciences Institute, said that brain-machine interfaces may add new dimensions to longstanding debates about the ethics of medical research with patients as subjects.

"Our brains are highly evolved for life on this planet," and they reflect a number of tradeoffs between, for example, the ability to learn quickly and the ability to take a long view and plan for the future, Newsome said, and fiddling with that balance could lead to negative unintended consequences.

That could be especially worrisome given Silicon Valley's enthusiasm for "hacking the brain," Newsome said, and the push to create brain-machine interfaces on the part of private companies such as Neuralink, billionaire Elon Musk's effort to enhance human intelligence, and Kernel, a similar endeavor toward cognitive enhancement. If those companies, some of which are focused on brain enhancement, make mistakes in the rush to market, it could hurt scientists doing slower, more careful work, Newsome said.

"There is a very blurry line between restoring and enhancing," Chichilnisky said, but "we are going to go there. That's what humanity does." While there have always been both good and bad outcomes of radical technological development, the net result has been mostly positive, and the human condition continues to improve as a result, he said.

Porg Mania has begun! This will be the hottest thing this Christmas! Get yours NOW!
What are Porgs?

The world has been asking the question that has been on everyone's mind. What or who, are these wonderful looking creatures, that have captured the hearts of millions across the world. Porgs are a sea bird species that lives on the planet Ahch-To, where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker hid in exile. The creatures, who dwelled on the cliffs of the island, can build nests and fly. Male porgs were known to be slightly bigger in size than females. Baby porgs are called porglets. They’re the Star Wars version of puffins, which is a species of bird found in the North Pacific Ocean and in the North Atlantic Ocean. I think a lot of people are going to want a porg as a pet after watching the movie this December. Lucasfilm announced an upcoming kids’ book called, "Chewie and the Porgs." The plot of the book is unknown but not sure if the book will be officially Canon, or just a kids book. The book will be released simultaneously with the move, The last Jedi, on December 15, 2017.

What do you think of the Porgs?

Polar Lights at Saturn Bid Cassini Farewell

On Sept. 14, 2017, one day before making its final plunge into Saturn's atmosphere, NASA's Cassini spacecraft used its Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph, or UVIS, instrument to capture this final view of ultraviolet auroral emissions in the planet's north polar region.

The view is centered on the north pole of Saturn, with lines of latitude visible for 80, 70 and 60 degrees. Lines of longitude are spaced 40 degrees apart. The planet's day side is at bottom, while the night side is at top. A sequence of images from this observation has also been assembled into a movie sequence. The last image in the movie was taken about an hour before the still image, which was the actual final UVIS auroral image.
