“Limitless Possibilities”

seven billion dreams one planet

On station (ISS) has given us the chance to see ourselves, seven billion souls with individual dreams, “limitless possibilities to do great things” as quoted by former Commander Scott Kelly. Viewing Earth on-board the ISS is a unanimous experience by astronauts, that you don’t see the drama humans create along with mapped out borders.  What’s experienced is the dynamics of nature in zero G, away from home and the thing missed the most is staying seated at a table and not having your utensils or your food float away.  The isolation from the world on a ship of pressurized modules that sails around the globe every 90 mins has brought anybody who boarded her closer to us all, ask any astronaut. The creation of this film produced by NASA/JPL represented the 15th Anniversary of human presence on-board station.  A truly global endeavor, more than 200 people from 15 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 1,700 research investigations from researchers in more than 83 countries.

Kelly’s right, the possibilities are limitless and we’ve done many great things already, Russia’s Roscosmos (State Corporation for Space Activities) started the space architecture with the fist module in November 1998.  From there the Space Shuttle, another international achievement that flew 27 missions to finish building the largest artificial body in orbit that gave us a vantage point to see ourselves, to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies.

You know something, we keep this up eventually we’ll understand, ‘we’re in this together’ and to move that thought process forward, mission WITT (We’re In This Together) will be introduced for an experience on-board station to size up your existence.  For those of us who find it hard to understand a balance of ‘we’re in this together’ are introduced to the edge, where if something fails you’re highly confident of your fellow-man or women for help and guidance to get back home after a long stay and fiery return.  The lesson?  welcome back for the first time of seven billion dreams and one planet.

The film editing in this clip is rendered in 720p60 HD, along with an epic sound track produced by Yanni and provided as a gift for the ISS 15th Anniversary of human presence.

Car Wash at Public Storage

This photo above was taken by my brother, we’re at his Public Storage site and he remarked, “hey look I’m getting a car wash at Public Storage!”  I laughed but at the same time thought of California’s water crisis.  This is no joke, so I mentioned to him we could get a bucket and let it fill from the drain spout, his remark was “come on guy, I was just kidding.”  All kidding aside there is no better way to learn how to conserve water as to carrying it first, before using it.

Rainwater harvesting from roof tops is an ample way to fill storage tanks on site for homes and commercial properties, many unique systems are in use today.

This system above is complex  but anyone familiar with the cost of drilling a well and maintenance of the pump and pipes including life span on the pump is not cheep.  So if cost is a factor any handy guy could develop this system bellow.

Smart Rainwater Harvesting

Smart Rainwater Harvesting

I have to think about all the water that was used for fracking in California, some of which was 70 to 100 million gallons just last year has helped the shortage and with limited snow in the Sierra Mountains rainwater is a blessing, then again it has to rain to collect.  You will see commercial sites doing this also and as time rolls on, Western States will want claims to the Great Lakes.

How much water do we use and the film doesn’t mention fracking.  Energy companies used nearly 250 billion gallons of water to extract unconventional shale gas and oil from hydraulically fractured wells in the United States between 2005 and 2014, Duke University study finds.  There may not be a typical fractured well because the water used depends on the rock formation, the operator, whether the well is vertical or horizontal and the number of portions or stages of the well that are fractured.  So depending on the well we have calculations from 1.5 to 15.8 million gallons of water used per well, that’s 17 states with about 82,000 wells operating nationally.  Production though is declining due to low oil prices under $40 a barrel.

It’s always shining, always ablaze with light and energy.  In the ubiquity of solar output, Earth swims in an endless tide of particles.  Every time half of the Earth faces the Sun, we experience the brightness of daytime, the Sun’s energy and light driving weather, biology and more.  But in space, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) keeps an eye on our nearest star 24/7. SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material.  In this video we experience images of the Sun in unprecedented detail captured by SDO.  Presented in ultra-high definition video (4K) the video presents the nuclear fire of our life-giving star in intimate detail, offering new perspective into our own relationships with grand forces of the solar system.

The ejected material is a plasma consisting primarily of electrons and protons. While solar flares are very fast, CMEs are relatively slow, all seen in 4K !

2015 Happy Halloween

The Struggle

The Struggle

Every year I do a piece on Halloween, last year I mentioned that the fear from the movies had no effect, as once I remembered.  This year the fear porn continues with an individual from India; Man casually walking along the street with a woman’s blood-stained head in one hand and an axe in the other, sounds like stuff out of a horror movie… but it’s what locals saw in an Indian city on Friday.

Then this is reported; The toddler of 2 1\2 years old was playing outside her home when she went missing during a 10-minute power outage in the neighborhood.  Family members found her lying unconscious and bleeding in a park three hours later, she had been raped.  In a separate incident, police on Saturday arrested three men for raping a 5-year-old in an east Delhi suburb.  The rape of the two girls came a week after a 4-year-old girl was found dumped near a railway track after being raped and slashed with a blade in the capital.

Sick frickin state of affairs man.

Mass Animal Deaths for 2015

Mass Animal Deaths 2015 - Updated List of Worldwide Die Offs

For me personally this is over the top, for the article reads; Below is a list of worldwide mass animal deaths for 2015, with pages also for mass die offs from the previous 4 years.  There are animals dying all over the world today in huge numbers, due to the polluted state of the sea and air.

What more fear porn? or do we need to keep going around with a magnifying glass looking for unreported clues from mainstream news until the Malibu beach house will not sell for $1.  Right, then we’ll believe, Fukushima Happy Halloween.  Here this will help, remove hima from word Fukushima and you have Fuk us.

Ya know,  I wonder if I’ll be writing an article next year on Halloween, wow the hairs on the back of my neck just stood up!

Who’s The Jagoff Now?

New Site: kindly link below

The judicial system in the US is out of whack and the world over, with that too many high-end officials seem to escape law and order. The trashing of the constitution is the big one next the ill respect of nuclear waste and continuing fracking that is polluting drinking water. What the hell is causing all of this and the list continues beyond the three I mentioned here, far beyond. As time goes by we see resistance to all of this and some screws get turned for the natives of society are restless. So from all the wrong doings just for the sake of money, little justice is applied but it’s so obvious at times because of public outcry we get our day in court or at least an investigation. When this happens the Jack Wagons will be posted here as who’s the Jagoff now, these people have taken advantage of the system with no regard to the planet or life but as to self, this don’t fly long and will see you here.

Fukushima: Why is Japan not Doing this but You Can

Run for cover Bentonite Clay

Run for cover Bentonite Clay

Clay is a negatively charged ion, whereas radioactive material carries a positive ionic charge. Bentonite Clay adsorbs and absorbs, by capturing positively charged ions, which you eliminate by washing them off or passing them through your body. Clay has many healing abilities due to its alkaline pH and high negative ionic charge. Calcium Bentonite Clay is one of the safest, easiest, and least expensive detoxing substances available. Clay is a noninvasive treatment, and when properly used, causes no harm. Rapid healing often results, such as a noticeable reduction in pain, irritation, and inflammation.

Historical Accounts:

The former Soviets have been using clay to remove radiation from the Russian population for the past sixty years. When the Soviet nuclear power plant in Chernobyl melted down in 1986, the (then) Soviet government put French Green Clay in chocolate bars. They dispensed them to the masses so any radiation they were exposed to would be immediately removed from their bodies. Most of the clean-up at Chernobyl was accomplished with Bentonite Clay. The use of clay in absorbing and removing toxins and radiation from the environment is common knowledge to an Environmental Engineer because they use clays to remove toxins from the soil and groundwater. As they did at Chernobyl, one of the best things the Japanese government could do is “raise” their nuclear power plants damaged by the earthquake under a layer of natural clay to absorb the radiation. Start burying the cores by the truckload.

About Clay

Here’s a man who walked from Pismo Beach to San Francisco reporting on the tide pools, trees and wildlife along, the West Coast.  He walked alone to tell the truth only to be hated because no one else was.

Article by Fidel: The uncertain future

Articles published by Fidel Castro Ruz,

Articles published by Fidel Castro Ruz,

“Reprinted from www.cubadebate.cu” (English translator was used)

In its evolution, Homo Sapiens, as a thinking being unique among millions of living species, never had idea of ​​the nature and reason for its existence. Gifted with the ability to think, was governed by severe instincts. Knew nothing of the rest of your wonderful planet. You do not even know since when has that capacity; in rare cases states that a million years ago or a little more, but it is generally considered that no more than 200,000 years.

Today it is known that the number of planets with similar appearances to our billions rises in the same galaxy where it is located ours, in what is known universe. I hope not to offend anyone by addressing the issue of what we are or think we are.

Two days ago, on October 5, the website of TV channel Russia Today, half serious disclosure, reported that Laura Mersini-Houghton, a prestigious professor at the University of North Carolina, has shown that supermassive black holes exist, and that the Big Bang theory is unfounded. This, I think, involves a trauma for many people who became such a theory in an act of faith.

The greatest authority on this subject would be the British scientist Stephen Hawking, a man of exceptional merit for their commitment to science, despite a cruel disease that made him great sacrifices to communicate with others, while still very young.

The scientists more aware of these issues are communicated and even publish their results in difficult technical terms understood by those who have not had the privilege of some familiarity with this science.

Stephen Hawking became, with the publication of “History of Time”, the author of a book on the important subject, whose sales totaled more than 10 million copies. Surely, apart from its intrinsic interest, the principal buyers were members of the community of scientists who study these important issues which now number several million eminent researchers. I will do my best to read and understand this work, when my current task related to food production in sufficient quantity and quality is a priority, and the effort still can translate into a significant benefit.

There is much to ignore and very little we know of our own ignorance.

The second copy of Hawking, “The Universe in a Nutshell”, written according to him in a more intelligible to the layman language, read and underlined many of the ideas that interested me.

Never in its evolution mankind had nor could have a clear idea of ​​their existence, because it simply did not exist simply evolved at the same pace of everything that exists. It is a reality that does not arise against anybody nor should offend anyone.

Every day we learn something new. Helping others and help where possible ourselves.

Yesterday I listened to the statements by the new Secretary General of NATO, former Prime Minister of Norway, who from the first last October, just six days ago, took office. Much hatred in the face! What an incredible effort to promote a war of extermination against the Russian Federation! Who are more extreme than the fans themselves the Islamic State? What religion do you practice? After that, you can enjoy eternal life at the right hand of the Lord?

How about that Mate, I sincerely hope you can relate to this writing and that all of humanity will shift to a time line of conscience that we’re in this together, because where you going to go?  Believe this or not we’re changing and nothing will stop the evolution of man.  This is truly the beginning of the end for world conquest and the manipulation of nations, those days are numbered.  You’re seeing more and more of the older heads of state that relieses this transition.   “Helping others and help where possible ourselves.”  (those are good words)

Hubble Birds-Eye View

Hubble's High-Definition Panoramic View of the Andromeda Galaxy

Hubble’s High-Definition Panoramic View of the Andromeda Galaxy

 

Fr The Hubble Site:

Jan 5th 2014

The largest NASA Hubble Space Telescope image ever assembled, this sweeping bird’s-eye view of a portion of the Andromeda galaxy (M31) is the sharpest large composite image ever taken of our galactic next-door neighbor. Though the galaxy is over 2 million light-years away, the Hubble telescope is powerful enough to resolve individual stars in a 61,000-light-year-long stretch of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disk. It’s like photographing a beach and resolving individual grains of sand. And, there are lots of stars in this sweeping view — over 100 million, with some of them in thousands of star clusters seen embedded in the disk.

This ambitious photographic cartography of the Andromeda galaxy represents a new benchmark for precision studies of large spiral galaxies that dominate the universe’s population of over 100 billion galaxies. Never before have astronomers been able to see individual stars inside an external spiral galaxy over such a large contiguous area. Most of the stars in the universe live inside such majestic star cities, and this is the first data that reveal populations of stars in context to their home galaxy.

Hubble discovers Wind at 2 Million mph

Milky Way Core Drives Wind at 2 Million mph

Milky Way Core Drives Wind at 2 Million mph

At a time when our earliest human ancestors had recently mastered walking upright, the heart of our Milky Way galaxy underwent a titanic eruption, driving gases and other material outward at 2 million miles per hour.

Now, at least 2 million years later, astronomers are witnessing the aftermath of the explosion: billowing clouds of gas towering about 30,000 light-years above and below the plane of our galaxy.

The enormous structure was discovered five years ago as a gamma-ray glow on the sky in the direction of the galactic center. The balloon-like features have since been observed in X-rays and radio waves. But astronomers needed NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to measure for the first time the velocity and composition of the mystery lobes. They now seek to calculate the mass of the material being blown out of our galaxy, which could lead them to determine the outburst’s cause from several competing scenarios.  (full story Hubble Site)

Hubble Finds Ring of Dark Matter

Hubble Finds Ring of Dark Matter

This rich galaxy cluster, cataloged as Cl 0024+17, is allowing astronomers to probe the distribution of dark matter in space. The blue streaks near the center of the image are the smeared images of very distant galaxies that are not part of the cluster. The distant galaxies appear distorted because their light is being bent and magnified by the powerful gravity of Cl 0024+17, an effect called gravitational lensing.

Dark Energy

Dark Energy

Dark matter cannot be seen because it does not shine or reflect light. Astronomers can only detect its influence by how its gravity affects light. By mapping the distorted light created by gravitational lensing, astronomers can trace how dark matter is distributed in the cluster. While mapping the dark matter, astronomers found a dark-matter ring near the cluster’s center. The ring’s discovery is among the strongest evidence that dark matter exists.

The Future One Way to Life

Starts with one then You

Starts with one then You

Yeap here we are heading into a New Year, hope you had a pleasant Holiday and enjoyed Christmas.  Is that politically correct?  I hope you really don’t care and can understand differences because it really doesn’t matter.  What’s going to matter is focusing on the horizon of what is possible to turn this Ship around.  I just got off the phone with my good friend Jacob (this gentleman knows how to work the condition, you’ll like the way this feels) and we touch on a heated subject of hatred, you know like police brutality where now we have an execution of two NYPD in Brooklyn.  Sad frickin story and where some are happy this act has happen, kind of like an eye for an eye.  Now since the officers killed in this execution were not involved in Ferguson do you hate the men or the act that started all this.  Seems to be these acts of hatred start with an idea and usually trained into others, hell this is how war starts you know the propaganda.  So it just might be it’s not so much the human but the training one receives, an idea that is put into place that causes all the friction.  Looking at the big picture we see the brutality, the confiscation of wealth through the banks, the toppling of nations through sanctions and isolation that we arrive at this hatred.  It’s like pining the tail on the Donkey, your blind folded so you can’t see the ass but someone said over there and you make an attempt to tag the Donkey.  Now in this respect the Donkey is either White, Black, Gay, Catholic, Muslim or Jew, etc but we have to pin someone for the explanation of hating of what one does and is associated with a group. Well if you peel away the skin you would never know would you, and ditch the books, what’s the beef?  What,  you don’t like what I like or believe and vise versa,  in reality as a whole this is all chicken shit because if we do not pull or heads from our own ass Fukushima will take care of all of us. This will be nothing short of a miracle to pull off, all lives indifference wont amount to a hill of beans if we can’t help the ocean, many think we can’t.  Life is truly dying out there in the ocean and with that (worst case scenario) all of humanity is at stake where a 50 to 90% die off can occur around 2050 and welcome to Mad Max.

Understanding one thing is understanding all, it’s all daisy chained together you have to understand you’re not that special dammit, unless you help life along its way even if you were to have all the wealth in the world and if that’s the case you never shared.  Nature herself is above the food chain, it an’t no animal and/or human, no masters here on the surface who walks the same ground, if so they could defy gravity simply.  We keep hating and go against the grain of Nature which is the one way to life, well I guess we don’t have long.  The next mass extinction event may have already begun and the post doesn’t mention Fukushima.

Since this is written on Christmas Day, here is a present we’ll have to Earn.

Astronaut’s-Eye View of NASA’s Orion Spacecraft Re-entry

New video recorded during NASA’s Orion return through Earth’s atmosphere provides viewers a taste of what the vehicle endured as it returned through Earth’s atmosphere during its Dec. 5 flight test.  Never seen before, hot ionized gas surrounds Orion as it enters Earth atmosphere at 20,000 mph.

The video begins 10 minutes before Orion’s 11:29 a.m. EST splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, just as the spacecraft was beginning to experience Earth’s atmosphere. Peak heating from the friction caused by the atmosphere rubbing against Orion’s heat shield comes less than two minutes later, and the footage shows the plasma created by the interaction change from white to yellow to lavender to magenta as the temperature increases. The video goes on to show the deployment of Orion’s parachutes and the final splash as it touches down.
