APOD: 2015 January 24 - Light from Cygnus A
"Explanation: Celebrating astronomy in this International Year of Light, the detailed image reveals spectacular active galaxy Cygnus A in light across the electromagnetic spectrum. Incorporating X-ray data ( blue) from the orbiting Chandra Observatory, Cygnus A is seen to be a prodigious source of high energy x-rays. But it is actually more famous at the low energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum. One of the brightest celestial sources visible to radio telescopes, at 600 million light-years distant Cygnus A is the closest powerful radio galaxy. Radio emission ( red) extends to either side along the same axis for nearly 300,000 light-years powered by jets of relativistic particles emanating from the galaxy's central supermassive black hole. Hot spots likely mark the ends of the jets impacting surrounding cool, dense material. Confined to yellow hues, optical wavelength data of the galaxy from Hubble and the surrounding field in the Digital Sky Survey complete a remarkable multiwavelength view." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

OLD MAN STATUS ACHIEVED: I've been looking forward to changing into my pajamas since I got home.
WELCOME - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android

APOD: 2015 January 23 - Interior View
"Explanation: Some prefer windows, and these are the best available on board the International Space Station. Taken on January 4, this snapshot from inside the station's large, seven-window Cupola module also shows off a workstation for controlling Canadarm2. Used to grapple visiting cargo vehicles and assist astronauts during spacewalks, the robotic arm is just outside the window at the right. The Cupola itself is attached to the Earth-facing or nadir port of the station's Tranquility module, offering dynamic panoramas of our fair planet. Seen from the station's 90 minute long, 400 kilometer high orbit, Earth's bright limb is in view above center." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

I feel like I'm the last person on earth who doesn't use iTunes or Slacker for listening to podcasts. Found another podcast I wanted to the list, but no RSS feed.
I use PodCruncher (on my iPhone or iPad.) I've really liked it. - Jennifer Dittrich
I have DoggCatcher, which I've loved for the past few years. But it relies on RSS, and it really frustrates me when I see a podcast with no RSS feed. Maybe I'm just old, but I like being able to adjust the settings myself. - Steven Perez
no RSS means i don't reliably follow it, if at all. not just podcasts but also websites in general. - Big Joe Silence
Dude, I just got into podcasts. You are way ahead of me. - Corinne L
I've been at it for over a decade. :) - Steven Perez

Watching GAMERA VS VIRAS. I think my misanthropy is proceeding along nicely, because I am actively cheering for the kids in these Showa-era kaiju films to die horrible deaths at the hands of the evil monsters. Seriously, these are some rotten kids.
Breaking and entering, grand theft submarine, industrial sabotage and all-around delinquency. Yeah, their parents have much to answer for. - Steven Perez
is Spring-Loaded ever coming back? - Big Joe Silence
Once I get a new computer. Should be soon; I've got a nice little refund coming. - Steven Perez

Apparently we only want to eat strawberries for dinner.
A sign of a finely tuned intelligent appetite, no doubt furthered by superior parenting. :) - Steven Perez

Woke up this morning to a dead car battery, which means Plan B (the bus) is in effect until my (hoped-for) tax refund hits my account. Still, could be worse. - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

APOD: 2015 January 21 - The Complex Ion Tail of Comet Lovejoy -
APOD: 2015 January 21 - The Complex Ion Tail of Comet Lovejoy
"Explanation: What causes the structure in Comet Lovejoy's tail? Comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy), which is currently at naked-eye brightness and near its brightest, has been showing an exquisitely detailed ion tail. As the name implies, the ion tail is made of ionized gas -- gas energized by ultraviolet light from the Sun and pushed outward by the solar wind. The solar wind is quite structured and sculpted by the Sun's complex and ever changing magnetic field. The effect of the variable solar wind combined with different gas jets venting from the comet's nucleus accounts for the tail's complex structure. Following the wind, structure in Comet Lovejoy's tail can be seen to move outward from the Sun even alter its wavy appearance over time. The blue color of the ion tail is dominated by recombining carbon monoxide molecules, while the green color of the coma surrounding the head of the comet is created mostly by a slight amount of recombining diatomic carbon molecules.

Republican SOTU responses get lost in translation | MSNBC -
"If Republican officials had said the two lawmakers intended to give different speeches, this might be less of an issue, but they actually said the opposite. Indeed, House Republicans specifically told reporters, in writing, that Curbelo would deliver “the Spanish-Language translated address of Sen. Joni Ernst response.” He’d have to change personal details such as his own name, but otherwise, it was supposed to be the same speech. Ernst, however, never mentioned immigration at all, while Curbelo devoted a paragraph to the issue. An English-speaking audience heard Republicans overlook immigration, while a Spanish-speaking audience was led to believe GOP lawmakers actually want to pass immigration reform. (They don’t.)" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"If this trick sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because we’ve seen the GOP try it before. About three years ago, we learned that Sen. Dean Heller (R) of Nevada created a campaign website with a separate, Spanish-language version. On the English-language version, the Republican condemned “amnesty” and “illegal immigrants,” while on the Spanish-language version, Heller conveniently forgot to include the same message." - Andrew C (✔)
It's like Republicans think that not many people know both English and Spanish well enough to notice the difference. - John (bird whisperer)
C'mon, John. We all know Hispanics don't speak any English. [/a little sarcasm] - Steven Perez

APOD: 2015 January 19 - Infrared Orion from WISE
"Explanation: The Great Nebula in Orion is an intriguing place. Visible to the unaided eye, it appears as a small fuzzy patch in the constellation of Orion. But this image, an illusory-color four-panel mosaic taken in different bands of infrared light with the Earth orbiting WISE observatory, shows the Orion Nebula to be a bustling neighborhood or recently formed stars, hot gas, and dark dust. The power behind much of the Orion Nebula (M42) is the stars of the Trapezium star cluster, seen near the center of the above wide field image. The orange glow surrounding the bright stars pictured here is their own starlight reflected by intricate dust filaments that cover much of the region. The current Orion Nebula cloud complex, which includes the Horsehead Nebula, will slowly disperse over the next 100,000 years." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

"Char siu, a sweet and savory Chinese barbecue, cooks up extra tender and juicy in this Cooking Light recipe. Now you don’t have to order Chinese take-out because this recipe is all the more healthier. For a complete meal, serve with sticky or long-grain white rice and a steamed or stir-fried medley of bell peppers, carrots, snow pears, sliced baby corn and water chestnuts." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Tamara J. B.
Yessss! We broke $100,000 for her last hospital stay. *cries and rolls eyes* It's highway robbery, I tell you.
2015-01-14 17.42.31.jpg
Holy shit. In a country with socialised health care, this is unfathomable to me. - Melly
It's unfathomable to me too. When we pay $1,000 a month for insurance, seeing large bills like this, even though we'll only have to pay 20% is still outrageous. Who needs a mortgage, when you have hospital bills!?! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
So you owe 20% of $100k?? :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yeah but just tack that on to the portion of the other hospital stays and endless co-pays. It's all too overwhelming but what can you do? I'm too busy dealing with her health on a daily basis to process it all. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

Good grief! *hugs* - vicster

Isn't there an annual limit on out-of-pocket expenses? Individual as well as family? - Anne Bouey
Wow. On top of everything else... - Stephan from iPhone
Blown away by the cost. Tamara, can we tempt you to move to Aus? - Mo Kargas

That is ridiculous, Tamara :( - Linda M. Jose
Such bullshit! - YvonneM

wait what? your insurance doesn't have an annual out of pocket maximum? :( - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
That's what I wondered/asked, too, Jeff. Hopefully, there is one. - Anne Bouey
Oh man. The numbers are too big to process. - Yolanda
i see it now Anne, I scanned so fast before that I didn't see your comment. - Jeff (Team マクダジ )

I bawled in the episode when Fry appears to his mom in her dreams. I would have put that first and bumped all of the others down. - Shevonne from iPhone
I was surprised that they missed that one. I would have dropped the first one on the list and bumped everyone down from #3 to make room for that one. - Steven Perez

APOD: 2015 January 17 - Comet Lovejoy s Tail -
APOD: 2015 January 17 - Comet Lovejoy s Tail
"Explanation: Sweeping north in planet Earth's sky, Comet Lovejoy's greenish coma and blue tinted ion tail stretched across this field of stars in the constellation Taurus on January 13. The inset at the upper left shows the 1/2 degree angular size of the full moon for scale. So Lovejoy's coma appears only a little smaller (but much fainter) than a full moon on the sky, and its tail is visible for over 4 degrees across the frame. That corresponds to over 5 million kilometers at the comet's estimated distance of 75 million kilometers from Earth. Blown by the solar wind, the comet's tenuous, structured ion tail streams away from the Sun, growing as this Comet Lovejoy heads toward perihelion, its closest approach to the Sun, on January 30. While diatomic carbon (C2) gas fluorescing in sunlight produces the coma's green color, the fainter bluish tail is tinted by emission from ionized carbon monoxide (CO+)." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

AC in my car is officially dead. The evaporator coil is kaput. Good news, the part is only about $300 bucks. Bad news, it is so buried in the dash board that the labor to replace it is about $1000 bucks. I better get torchin' SUMMER IS COMING ;-)
:( - Jenny H. from Android
Ow. - Stephen Mack
Dealer wants $1500. The funny thing is I'm more concerned about them getting the dash back together without it making noise. Honestly I don't think its possible and yet it would drive me crazy. - Shannon - GlassMistress
The evaporator coil in my car was busted when I bought it used. Fixed it for roughly the same price as you, and then my compressor went. :( - Colette
