"Shiny NGC 253 is one of the brightest spiral galaxies visible, and also one of the dustiest.

Discovered in 1783 by mathematician and astronomer Caroline Herschel, the dusty island universe lies a mere 10 million light-years away. About 70 thousand light-years across, NGC 253 is the largest member of the Sculptor Group of Galaxies, the nearest to our own Local Group of Galaxies. *Click image for larg... more »

*"The Doors of Perception"* by Aldous Huxley "Aldous Huxley became a pioneer in the (practically nonexistent) field of modern psychedelic literature in 1954 when he published The Doors of Perception, a short but detailed book about his experience with mescaline. Many people would hesitate to publish a book about such a controversial and personal topic even today, half a century later, but Huxley staked his claim smack dab in the middle of the 1950s. The term “psychedelic” hadn’t even been coined yet (though Huxley would contribute to its creation a few years later). This book rep... more »

Economic Inequality And Economics Theory-- Stiglitz To The Rescue

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
I used to be in the music business. Like in many businesses, there was always a tension between executives who put all their energy and resources into the current quarter and executives who felt a responsibility towards creating long-term (future) shareholder value. Bonuses-- which could be 6 or 7 figure amounts-- tended to be based on the short-term approach. That's, at least in part, why so many music companies have gone under. Recently *Business Insider* ran a piece about Davos that deals with the problems around economic inequality, which stems, at least in part from 1970s st... more »

How a Little British Frigate Took on Communist China—and Won

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 1 hour ago
*Michael Peck* *History, Asia* It was too small a ship for such a big war. The date was April 1949, and China was aflame in civil war. The nationalist regime of Chiang Kai Shek convulsed in its death throes before the advance of Mao Zedong's communist armies. And on the mighty Yangtze river—the third-longest in the world—sailed the British frigate HMS *Amethyst*. There was nothing special about the *Amethyst* in size or reputation. Built in 1942, it was one of hundreds of cheap, expendable little escort vessels churned out by British shipyards to protect convoys from Nazi U-boats... more »

Air Force "Hardens" Satellites to Prepare for Space War (Think Russia or China)

Kris Osborn at The National Interest - 10 hours ago
*Kris Osborn* *Security, * A smart idea. Air Force space technology and weapons developers are working quickly to prepare for major space war by accelerating new weapons programs and fast-tracking satellite protections or "hardening" systems. Part of this challenge not only involves defending laser attacks or "jamming" weapons in space, but also hinges upon reconciling the advantages of using smaller form factors for space assets with the increased radiation challenges they present. Building upon a 33-percent funding increase offered by the 2019 budget proposal, Air Force offi... more »

Opposition parties walk out of Alexis Tsipras’ show trial of ten political rivals, hideous plot backfires spectacularly as no one believes the three anonymous witnesses

Jane Burgermeister at Eugenics and pandemics - 10 hours ago
With the USA refusing to engage in a confrontation with Turkey over two Greek soldiers taken into custody, Alexis Tsipras is accelerating his metamorphosis into Roland Freisler, acting as judge, jury and prosecution for his political rivals in the Novartis case. This is based on the testimony of three anonymous witnesses, which sounds quite fantastic. […]

30 Questions That Journalists Should be Asking About the Skripal Case

Rob Slane at 10 hours ago
*[image: undefined]* There are a lot of issues around the case of Sergei and Yulia Skripal which, at the time of writing, are very unclear and rather odd. There may well be good and innocent explanations for some or even all of them. Then again there may not. This is why it is crucial for questions to be asked where, as yet, there are either no answers or deeply unsatisfactory ones. Some people will assume that this is conspiracy theory territory. It is not that, for the simple reason that I have no credible theory — conspiracy or otherwise — to explain all the details of the incide... more »
