I generally don't blog to much about family since I'm a pretty private person but in this case, I will gladly make an exception to the rule. To say that my mom has been the rock of my existence would be an gross understatement. While we share a family joke that I was the perfect child (hey Amber, had to say it, sis!), this hasn't always been true. I'm far from perfect and I'd love to take an eraser into the past to rub out some pretty big screw ups. No matter what though, Mom was always there to support me in so many ways.

"Cosmic dust clouds dim the light of background stars. But they also reflect the light of stars nearby. Since bright stars tend to radiate strongly in the blue portion of the visible spectrum, and the interstellar dust scatters blue light more strongly than red, the dusty reflection nebulae tend to be blue. Lovely examples are the wispy blue reflection nebulae near bright, hot stars Pi and Delta Scorpii (upper left and lower right) in this telescopic skyscape from the head of the constellation Scorpius. *Click image for larger size.* Of course, the contrasting red emission nebulae a... more »

*“Four Numbers that Show the Beating Down of Middle America”* by Paul Buchheit “There's something perversely wrong with a society that creates $30 trillion in new wealth while putting six million more children on food stamps. The mainstream media rarely publishes facts like this. The super-rich keep building up their own numbers, as quietly as possible. And our leading members of Congress have little need for numbers, except for budget cuts and the strings of zeros at the end of their campaign contributions.

Fatalism is the path of the irresponsible and cowardly

Rufus News From Atlantis at News From Atlantis. - 12 hours ago
We hear much these days of the 'clash of civilisations' and the need to find common ground to heal the wounds of the world. This is liberal thinking and as one would expect, is a misdirection of thought. There is no clash of civilisations. The root of all our woes is a clash of thought processes. The very essence of the conflict of peoples of diverse cultures and origins, is the split between those who believe that everything is predestined, and those who believe in the need to be self-reliant and exercise free will.

At the start of March 2015, the Iraqi government launched multiple offensives to squeeze the Islamic State in the western and northern sections of the country. The Tikrit operation was the largest to date, but there was a supporting move by the Kurdish peshmerga into southern Kirkuk to cut off supply lines to Salahaddin province, along with a sweep through eastern Anbar to try to secure western Baghdad’s suburbs. IS responded with a huge wave of suicide car bombs, which failed to stop the advances. There was little doubt that the government was going to win in these fights, but th... more »

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 23 hours ago
*March 16, 2015* (Tony Cartalucci - NEO) - US policymakers admit that Iran's strategy is "largely defensive," and both aggressive and defensive tendencies are largely in response to US policy in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Review - Boom, Bust, Boom: A Story About Copper, the Metal That Runs the World by Bill Carter

Small Footprints at Reduce Footprints - 1 day ago
At one time, I lived in Arizona. On weekends, wanting to get to know our new home, we explored the state. On one particular trip, as we wound down a mountain road, we came upon a fenced area with tons of warning signs. Do not enter, Danger, No Trespassing signs were huge and placed everywhere. The ones with a scull and crossbones made me shiver! We wondered what we had stumbled upon ... and whether we were someplace where we shouldn't be. I checked the map to be sure that we hadn't wandered off our course and determined that we were on the right road. Still ... it was rather creepy.... more »

Chet Raymo, "Perchance To Dream”

*"Perchance To Dream”* by Chet Raymo “I believe I mentioned here a year or two ago how so many of my current dreams are set in the house and city I grew up in - 4106 Anderson Avenue, Chattanooga, Tennessee. Never in any of the other places I have lived, including this house in New England in which I have spent the great majority of my adult life. No. Always the white colonial on Anderson Avenue and a distorted but recognizable Chattanooga. These dreams are becoming more common. So much so that I wonder to what extent this phenomenon is shared by others in my age cohort, and what it... more »

The Great Roswell Hoaxes

They began almost from the moment that we all learned that something had fallen near Roswell that certainly wasn’t a standard weather balloon. After the publication of *The Roswell Incident* Bill Moore complained that he had taken the investigation as far as he could and told several people that he was thinking of creating a “Roswell” type document in an attempt to convince the reluctant witnesses to talk. The blueprint for this document and the story o... more »

Constructive dismissal

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 1 day ago
Potter *v.* New Brunswick Legal Aid Services Commission, 2015 SCC 10: The test for constructive dismissal has two branches. The court must first identify an express or implied contract term that has been breached and then determine whether that breach was sufficiently serious to constitute constructive dismissal. However, an employer's conduct will also constitute constructive dismissal if it more generally shows that the employer intended not to be bound by the contract. This approach is necessarily retrospective, as it requires consideration of the cumulative... more »

fear and loathing in las vegas

"We were someplace around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive . . .

And a voice was screaming: Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?" (hunter s. thompson) (movie trailer)
