"Here lie familiar shapes in unfamiliar locations. On the left is an emission nebula cataloged as NGC 7000, famous partly because it resembles our fair planet's continent of North America. The emission region to the right of the North America Nebula is IC 5070, also known for its suggestive outlines as the Pelican Nebula. Separated by a dark cloud of obscuring dust, the two bright nebulae are about 1,500 light-years away.

Remember the old projection TV? Mitsubishi has been messing around with them for years promising a new laser DLP.

Better TV with Quantum Dots

Much of what is sold in the Audio Visual marketplace is pure snake oil. I remain unconvinced that 32 Bit 194 Hrz audio is going to sound one bit better than a 16 bit 44Khz CD or loss less copy.

Normally, when your currency is pegged to something and that something goes down, your currency goes down as well. Yet the dollar is strong, and among the currencies in the tank is the Russian ruble.

That we liberals have turned out to be too dumb, too tribal, too uncaring to function in a democracy? By now, the evidence of our shortfall is overwhelmingly clear. Let’s review an example which preceded the killings in Paris this week. Let’s consider the anguished, angry post by Joan Walsh at the new Salon. (We’ll assume the piece was done in good faith—that Walsh wasn’t deliberately toying with Salon’s target audience.) Walsh was railing against Chris Christie, a favorite tribal vi... more »

Progressives think Obama could have done more-- much more-- to further the legitimate economic interests of the American working class. Others think he did as much as he could under the political constraints in Washington. His record is a mixed bag. Yesterday, the unemployment continued its downward trend, dipping to 5.6%, the best numbers since Bush tanked the economy in 2008...in fact, the best numbers since Bill Clinton was president. Despite dogged, systematic obstruction by the GOP, Obama's policies have worked to drag the country back from the brink of Republican apocalypse... more »

Charlie Hebdo: an almost happy end

MoD asks for American help in searching for Russian submarine near Scotland

Ko Savonije at Naval Open Source INTelligence - 21 hours ago
[image: Vanguard class SSBN]The Ministry of Defence has been forced to request US military assistance to track a suspected Russian submarine off the coast of Scotland.

Airbus VS Boeing

Steve at Thinking Aboot - 1 day ago
The Airbus A350 which is the answer to the question of how big a nightmare is the dreamliner. Just looking at the chart below whats the case for buying a Dreamliner? Currently its estimated Boeing loses $45 million on every sale. This as I understand it does not include warranty costs. If the troubled introduction of this plane is any indication they are going to be substantially more than any plane in history. When I see a plane take off and slowly rise up and away I am still filled with a sense of wonder. I have flown millions of miles but not on any of the three planes abo... more »
