"I hate the cliché that every crisis brings with it an opportunity. What it brings with it is a choice. We have to choose to ensure that we have more than one week’s worth of food in Puerto Rico for our entire population. We have to take climate change seriously because it is real, and we have to make it an integral part of how we reshape, how we reform and how we rethink the structure of our society. We have to think about our relationship with the United States. How do we make it a more fair, dignified one? It will never be totally equal, but it should be much more fair and just. We both know what our duties are and we both know what our expectations should be."

Recurring Martian Streaks: Flowing Sand, Not Water?

This inner slope of a Martian crater has several of the seasonal dark streaks called "recurrent slope lineae," or RSL, that a November 2017 report interprets as granular flows, rather than darkening due to flowing water.

Spencers Creek Cascades and Ice Bank Australian Alps

In late September, Spencers Creek was under 240cm (94") of snow. Yesterday, snow banks still lined the creek, one of the highest creeks in Australia. Snow melt feeds the cascades and waterfalls along the creek, which can dry into a string of waterholes in summer's heat.

Snowfall in Australia has been measured here since 1954 (when the maximum snow depth was 100cm and it took 2 days on a sled to get to the creek). It is an unlikely front line in the climate wars, but arguments rage over what the snow depth reading mean. The data from 1954-2016 can be found here:
http://www.sbs.com.au/interactive/2015/kosciuszko-snow-depth/
And the data from 2016-2017 is here:
http://www.snowyhydro.com.au/our-energy/water/inflows/snow-depths-calculator/

The water was a mix of warm and icy cold - it was inclined to be sluggish in places. I tried a couple of different approaches here, starting with using a CPL filter to remove water reflection. Note that a CPL filter allows you to 'see' through the water surface, deeper into the water. It is an inexpensive addition to your kit if you buy online and you can hold one in front of a camera phone or fixed lens camera to good effect.
In the end, i didn't use it for this shot, as it masked the flow of the water, and the'sluggish' feel of the stream.
A simple shot from my iPhone, toned for structure, white levels rebalanced, and output sharpened. i will post a zoomed DSLR shot in comments with a CPL filter by way of comparison.

Chandratal crepesculars

Spiti, Himachal, India

The sun was moving fast towards the horizon as I was approaching the Chandratal lake campsite, and I was fearing I would not make it in time as the language barrier between me and my driver made it impossible to clarify whether the camp site was by the lake or not.

When we arrived at the very end of the road I got my answer – no lake in sight! I was still unable to get any idea as to the distance to the lake and just had to walk as fast as I could on the trail. When I finally got the view of the lake I quickly realized I would not have a chance to get a capture of the lake and the sunset before dark, and instead had to find a suitable location just west of it.

As the beautiful crepuscular rays became more and more prominent I knew they would diminish very soon and I set up gear here on this flat area as a contrast to the snow capped mountains and the dramatic ridge just ahead. It is a rather unusual looking location with a redness to it that made me think of Mars

I wish I had more time here, but at least I got some beautiful sun rays.

5 Cybersecurity And Privacy Cases To Watch
By Allison Grande, Law 360, July 3, 2017
FYI Partial excerpt from the FIRST of THREE linked in news articles, follows :>
Supreme Court Takes On Location Privacy

The Supreme Court in early June agreed to review the Sixth Circuit's 2016 decision in Carpenter v. U.S., which held that a phone's cell-site location information counts as a routinely collected business record that the government can gather without a warrant as long as the data reveals nothing about the actual content of cellphone communications https://www.law360.com/articles/936384/5-cybersecurity-and-privacy-cases-to-watch

Even This Data Guru Is Creeped Out By What Anonymous Location Data Reveals About Us
Using code and the web, a data scientist follows two unnamed people and learns just how much our anonymous location data can say about who we are.
By DJ Pangburn {a long Read}, FastCompany, September 26, 2017
https://www.fastcompany.com/3068846/how-your-location-data-identifies-you-gilad-lotan-privacy

Partial excerpt:

While tech companies–and, by extension, advertisers–have access to user location data because users have given their permission, law enforcement has another way to access it: They can obtain location data directly from the telecom companies through a court order. A case currently pending in the Supreme Court, Carpenter v. United States, will decide if this law needs to be changed, or if a search warrant is necessary to obtain that kind of data. (A number of large tech companies have filed amicus briefs arguing for more stringent controls.)
