“These two spiral galaxies make a photogenic pair, found within the boundaries of the northern constellation Draco. Contrasting in color and orientation, NGC 5965 is nearly edge-on to our line of sight and dominated by yellow hues, while bluish NGC 5963 is closer to face-on. Of course, even in this well-framed cosmic snapshot the scene is invaded by other galaxies, including small elliptical NGC 5969 at the lower left. * Click image for larger size.* Brighter, spiky stars in our own Milky Way are scattered through the foreground.

The Poet: David Whyte, "Sweet Darkness"

*"Sweet Darkness"* "When your eyes are tired the world is tired also. When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you. Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own. There you can be sure you are not beyond love. The dark will be your womb tonight. The night will give you a horizon further than you can see. You must learn one thing: the world was made to be free in. Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong. Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you ... more »

"Who Says You Have To?"

"Who Says You Have To?" by Ali "Something I’ve become very aware of recently is how often I say or think “I have to” or “I need to” when, actually, I don’t. You probably do this too. Almost everyone does. I’m thinking of things like: I have to clean the kitchen this weekend. I need to phone my mother. I have to try a bit of that cake. I need to lose weight. In almost every case, it’s just not an accurate way to describe the situation. In particular, any time you start feeling that you have to or need to do something because it’s what society (/your friends/your dad/etc) expects, th... more »

Bring Me The Head Of Donald J. Trump: Was Kathy Griffin Simply Ahead Of The Curve?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 2 hours ago
*-by Noah* I've never been a fan of Kathy Griffin, and I'm certainly not a fan of CNN, but she may just have been ahead of the curve with her infamous "severed head" bit. I admit that what she did was more than a bit strong; forgive the pun; too cutting edge. But, in light of what our evil orange Kim Jong-un imitator and wannabe has done with his anti-Earth decision, I suspect more people will eventually come to see Griffin's action as maybe not so far beyond the pale after all. Perhaps, in the meantime, she could just pose with a depiction of a burning, cracking Earth. Kathy Gri... more »

*== A weaponized narrative ==* Joel Garreau writes about how our latest strategic worry – “weaponized narrative” -- seeks to undermine an opponent’s civilization, identity, and will by generating complexity, confusion, and political and social schisms. It can be used tactically, as part of explicit military or geopolitical conflict; or strategically, as a way to reduce, neutralize, and defeat a civilization, state, or organization. Done well, it limits or even eliminates the need for armed force to achieve political and military aims. *“Far from being simply a U.S. or U.K. phenomeno... more »

It's certainly disappointing that Pat Stogran has chosen to drop out of the NDP's leadership race - particularly by leaving taking shots at the party which made sure he had a place on its stage. That said, Stogran's campaign ultimately seems to have been defined by an unwillingness to learn about the political process in which he wanted to participate, combined with an inclination to blame others for that weakness. And while he never had a strong chance of winning the NDP's leadership, his quick and bitter exit can't be taken to have done much other than throw away any chance of co... more »

Archaeologists Have Uncovered Oldest Maya Calendar

White Wolf at White Wolf - 10 hours ago
In the last known largely unexcavated Maya megacity, archaeologists have uncovered the only known mural adorning an ancient Maya house, a new study says—and it's not just any mural. In addition to a still vibrant scene of a king and his retinue, the walls are rife with calculations that helped ancient scribes track vast amounts of time. Contrary to the idea the Maya predicted the end of the world in 2012, the markings suggest dates thousands of years in the future. Perhaps most important, the otherwise humble chamber offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of Maya society. "... more »
