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!

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.

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.

WHAT EFFECT COLORS ARE TOWARD YOUR BODY?

Bonjour Everyone
Enjoy to learn more about what color does to your body under Chromotherapy lights.
It has been known for eons of time that color plays a major role in setting up a particular mood or state of mind. Color does affect one's feelings, moods, and emotions.
Colors are certain wavelengths of electro-magnetic energy seen through our eyes. The color we see is the part of the visible spectrum that is reflected back by a certain object.
Let us have a look at some of the colors, and their effects on our bodies.
Green
Regulates the pituitary gland, fights depression, bulimia, and other psychosomatic conditions affecting the gastric system. It is useful in calming the nervous system, fights irritability, insomnia and can be used to assist in recovery from nervous breakdowns.
Blue
Calming. Stimulates the parasympathetic system, reduces blood pressure and calms both breathing and heart-rate. It has anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxing effects. Fights both physical and mental tension and is used to assist in relaxation.
Red
Is used to energise and stimulate. Affects the heart by increasing pulse rate, and the muscles by increasing their tension. Influences vitality, and increases body temperature. Can be used to develop excitement and sensuality.
Yellow
Increases neuromuscular tone. Purifies blood, helps digestion, and has a cleansing effect. Strongly stimulates happiness, brings on a sense of security, as well as a strong feeling of well-being.
White
Used for regeneration. Also, provides energy and balances the chronobiological rhythm, by stimulating the production of serotonin, a substance which regulates both sleep and the nervous system. Rebalances the psychophysical and hormonal systems in people who suffer from seasonal depression.
Edwin Dwight Babbitt was an early proponent of Chromotherapy Lights.

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.

The Chrome OS team is working hard to make sure Android apps run properly on Chrome OS, but it is taking a bit longer than the team originally anticipated. This summer, over a dozen Chromebooks have gotten access to the Play Store and Android apps, but only on the Beta Channel. Now, four more Chromebooks have gained access to the Play Store and Android apps in the Chrome OS Stable Channel.

The four models that now have access to the Play Store in the Chrome OS Stable Channel are the ASUS Chromebook Flip C302, Dell Chromebook 3189, Lenovo Chromebook N22, and Lenovo IdeaPad N42 Chromebook. Three of the four models listed are Chromebooks directed towards the education market, but many will be happy to hear that the consumer-directed ASUS Chromebook Flip C302 now has access to Android apps in the Stable Channel.
