Here, you can see the ancient European courtly tradition that it's undignified to take offence when insulted by the royal jester in action.

The mother of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was one of the many to take to Twitter to respond to President Trump’s criticism of NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem. “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a (expletive) off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’” Trump said at a rally in Alabama Friday night.

Although Trump didn’t actually name Kaepernick, it seemed pretty clear who his words were directed at considering he was the one who first gained notoriety last year for protesting the national anthem. And Kaepernick’s mom, Teresa Kaepernick, was quick to respond: “Guess that makes me a proud bitch!”

Nambia Withdraws From Covfefe Agreement

"Kafka, Nambia – The capital of this Sub-Saharan country is boiling over with rage. After finally being officially recognized by President Trump on the floor of the United Nations, the rest of the world turns its back on Nambia.

Major fake news outlets like CNN, the failing New York Times, and, yes, even the august the Flat Earth Gazette are incorrectly reporting Nambia is a non-country..."

Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1964

In this image, taken by the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory, Chile, you can see NGC 1964. It is a barred spiral galaxy (https://goo.gl/d3D1xC), located in the constellation of Lepus (The Hare, https://goo.gl/zGO0Vb), about 70 million light-years away from Earth.

The galaxy features four spiral arms, two inner arms and two outer arms and has a diameter of about 50,000 light-years.The outer arms are home to a few HII regions (https://goo.gl/glgWjw).

NGC 1964 was discovered November 20th, 1784, by the English astronomer William Herschel (https://goo.gl/E9YsKH).

This striking image of Jupiter was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it performed its eighth flyby of the gas giant planet.

The image was taken on Sept. 1, 2017 at 2:58 p.m. PDT (5:58 p.m. EDT). At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was 4,707 miles (7,576 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a latitude of about -17.4 degrees.

Citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt processed this image using data from the JunoCam imager. Points of interest are “Whale's Tail” and "Dan's Spot.”

JunoCam's raw images are available for the public to peruse and process into image products at:

The Chicago Bulls and guard Dwyane Wade have reached an agreement on a contract buyout, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Wade gave up approximately $8 million of his remaining $23.8 million salary to reach an agreement on a buyout, league sources told ESPN. According to ESPN'S Adrian Wojnarowski, The Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, and the Miami Heat are the leaders to sign Wade once the buyout is made official. However, sources also tell Wojnarowski that the Oklahoma City Thunder — who recently acquired Wade's friend Carmelo Anthony — may also have interest.

In terms of money, here's what the previously mentioned teams have to offer Wade:

Miami Heat: $4.2M
San Antonio Spurs: $3.3M
Cleveland Cavaliers: $2.5M
Oklahoma City Thunder: $2.3M

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.

Coming back for more

Tawny Funnel fungus (Lepista flaccida)

Svartskog, Norway

This specimen was one of several growing under a spruce near my house, and looked really beautiful from a distance, but last night one or more slugs had a feast and made some serious damage. Next night more slugs might come by to continue feasting.

It’s a race against time for the slugs to eat before the mushroom decompose and for the mushroom to disperse spores before it’s eaten by slugs.

Many mushrooms are even eaten from inside by maggots, so while I encounter what is seemingly a beautiful specimen today, it might be completely demolished tomorrow!
If not picked by a human!

In a recent inter view with CNBC, Min-Liang Tan, CEO and co-founder of Razer, discussed the future of Razer products and had some interesting information to give out. While he avoided saying smartphone outright, he did mention that they were working on a new mobile device for gaming. “And I can say that we are coming up with a mobile device specifically geared toward gamers and entertainment.” Tan also stated that they are hoping for a 2017 release, which means we might hear more about it in the upcoming months.

Seth Abramson: One in every few generations in the West, a leader so vile arises that he can draw out the evil from his population & weaponize it. Trump's reign will go down in history as a reign of uncommon cruelty. Trump will go down in history as the worst president & as one of our greatest villains. He's trying to terrorize you, America, all of us. Only a fool fails to see that the pain & suffering that comes from having a madman as a leader is soon coming for every one of us. Things are going to get very bad.

Massive Shell-Expelling Star G79.29+0.46
Image Credit: +NASA, Spitzer Space Telescope, WISE; Processing & License : Judy Schmidt
https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap170925.html

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.
