The floating markets belong to the highlights of the Mekong delta. These markets are central markets in the delta, where people can buy fruit and vegetables from local production. The goods are sold directly from the boats - the owners hang the available products on long poles, so that people can see what’s on offer from far away. Small sampans serve as mobile cafés, where you can buy soft drinks, an iced coffee or a strong noodle soup for breakfast.

The "desierto florido" (flowering desert) phenomenon usually occurs every five to seven years when rains cause buried seeds to germinate and flower. More than 200 species of plant have been found to grow in the area. The spectacle draws visitors and botanists from Chile and further afield.

No, we'd remain quite sane.
Which is why we'd fight her tooth and nail.

"The bill would establish automatic voter registration and reinvigorate the Voting Rights Act, crippled by a Supreme Court decision in 2013. It would take away redistricting power from state legislatures and give it to independent commissions.

Other provisions would overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling, which declared political spending is First Amendment free speech; they would mandate more disclosure of outside money and establish a public financing match for small contributions.

Ethics language in the bill would strike closer to current controversies. When President Trump took office, he said — accurately — that the ban on conflicts of interest doesn't cover presidents. The bill would close that loophole, while expanding the anti-bribery law and requiring presidential candidates to make their tax returns public."

American broadcaster CNN has taken legal action against US President Donald Trump, and several of his aides, for barring the network’s senior correspondent from the White House.

It's Tuesday, November 13, 2018, and here are some of the highlights from the dozen or so posts I published today:

* Donald Trump boasted last week that Senate Republicans had won their largest majority "in the last 100 years." It was wrong then; it's a little worse now (https://on.msnbc.com/2B3x4kw).

* It's a problem that Trump is picking a fight with a key United States ally. It's a bigger problem that Trump is basing the fight on an issue he doesn't seem to understand (https://on.msnbc.com/2B3kKAy).

* Trump must've known what it'd look like if he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a Republican megadonor's wife. Trump is honoring Sheldon Adelson's wife anyway (https://on.msnbc.com/2RT5dt0).

* "Nobody else could have done what I've done," Trump said last about his policy toward North Korea. What he's done, however, is come up with a policy that doesn't appear to be working (https://on.msnbc.com/2T4mEbn).

* It's amusing to see Trump try to blame stock market drops on Democrats, but there's a serious angle to this: the president's latest missive hinted that his real concern is about congressional investigations (https://on.msnbc.com/2T4mpgt).

* As the drama continues in Florida, one Republican-friendly county permitted ballots at odds with state election laws. With all the talk about "fraud," one Democratic lawmaker asked, "Why the double standard?" (https://on.msnbc.com/2zSCtsC)

Mapping the night

Description
Imaging Earth from space is a favourite pastime for astronauts on the International space Station. They can set their cameras to automatically snap photos while they work, but often make time to Earth-gaze and take photos of their own.
ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst snapped this photo of Europe at night in September, captioning it, “From space it's pretty clear that Europe belongs together.”
It is also pretty clear that Europe is very well lit at night, perhaps unnecessarily so.
Excessive artificial light is known as light pollution and it is often a problem in urban areas. Many meteor showers have gone unnoticed by urban populations and the average city dweller can make out very few stars and constellations in the synthetic glow.
A more serious consideration of light pollution is energy efficiency. As the world grapples with climate change and cleaner sources of energy, how that energy is put to use is a bright topic.
A citizen science project is hoping to address the problem of light pollution and energy efficiency in cities by creating a map of the world at night.
Cities at Night is an online platform that invites citizens to flip through the half a million photographs of Earth at night taken so far by astronauts from the Space Station to identify cities.
In this regard, humans are much more efficient than computers, which require complicated algorithms to categorise images. The human eye, on the other hand, can quickly differentiate a photograph of a city from that of stars.
The end result of Cities at Night will be map of Earth that is accessible to anyone. Researchers want to use the map to locate energy inefficiencies in urban cities to urge dimming of the lights. This would also reclaim some of the night sky for urban dwellers to enjoy.
Find out how you can help and improve your geography knowledge with the Cities at Night project. With a mind-boggling amount of data about our planet along with the availability of the latest digital technologies, citizen science projects such as these is just one way to help interpret the data and there are countless opportunities for innovation. ESA’s ɸ-week, running this week, explores how data and new technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain can benefit business, industry and science to bring benefits to all.
