Frou Frou - Live KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic 09/27/02 | YouTube

I've shared a few Imogen Heap songs in the past. She's one of my favourite musical geniuses. But did you know what she used to do before she was just 'Imogen Heap'? Well, she was one half of Frou Frou - a band she formed with Guy Sigsworth. The 36'37" video linked to below is a live session they did in 2002. If you're also an Immi fan, you might recognise the spark of some of her later genius. If not, you might just enjoy it anyway.

It was in the 90s when I toured White Sands and I gotta tell ya--it looked the same as it did in the 70s, I was told. Well, if you worked HVAC around large computational areas then I'm sure you were required to do a special set-up compared to ordinary residential/industrial. Those areas have to be set up like high-particle cleanrooms (class 1000 or so). Air flow is somewhat laminar.
We once worked replacing large ducting in a Raytheon bunker. We had to stretch netting underneath us in case of mishaps while working over $10,000,000 computer equipment. We were notified by MPs that were outside the bunker listening to radio of the Challenger disaster while on that job.

M78 Wide Field


Image Credit & Copyright: Wes Higgins

Explanation: Interstellar dust clouds and glowing nebulae abound in the fertile constellation of Orion. One of the brightest, M78, is centered in this colorful, wide field view, covering an area north of Orion's belt. At a distance of about 1,500 light-years, the bluish reflection nebula is around 5 light-years across. Its tint is due to dust preferentially reflecting the blue light of hot, young stars. Reflection nebula NGC 2071 is just to the left of M78. Flecks of emission from Herbig-Haro objects, energetic jets from stars in the process of formation, stand out against the dark dust lanes. The exposure also brings out the region's fainter, pervasive reddish glow of atomic hydrogen gas.

"No doubt our 46th president will represent a distinct improvement over our 45th. But it does not fall within his capability to expiate the sins besetting our nation. To my knowledge, no one has improved on Martin Luther King’s description of those sins: the “giant triplets” of racism, materialism, and militarism."

The Magnetic Field of the Whirlpool Galaxy


Image Credit: NASA, SOFIA, HAWC+, Alejandro S. Borlaff; JPL-Caltech, ESA, Hubble; Text: Jayanne English (U. Manitoba)

Explanation: Do magnetic fields always flow along spiral arms? Our face-on view of the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) allows a spectacularly clear view of the spiral wave pattern in a disk-shaped galaxy. When observed with a radio telescope, the magnetic field appears to trace the arms' curvature. However, with NASA’s flying Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) observatory, the magnetic field at the outer edge of M51's disk appears to weave across the arms instead. Magnetic fields are inferred by grains of dust aligning in one direction and acting like polaroid glasses on infrared light. In the featured image, the field orientations determined from this polarized light are algorithmically connected, creating streamlines. Possibly the gravitational tug of the companion galaxy, at the top of the frame, on the dusty gas of the reddish star-forming regions, visible in the Hubble Space Telescope image, enhances turbulence -- stirring the dust and lines to produce the unexpected field pattern of the outer arms.

UK ministers gain power to allow lower-standard food imports

Ministers will be able to approve the import of animal and agricultural products of a lower standard than currently permitted in the UK, after attempts to amend the trade bill failed.

Boris Johnson and his Tory government has repeatedly vowed not to allow the import of chlorinated chicken and hormone-treated beef, but has refused to sign those pledges into law.

Jede Seele muss gesunden,
wenn sie reine Schönheit trinkt.
Sag', hast du das nie empfunden
abends, wenn die Sonne sinkt?

Kannst du etwas Schöneres denken
als des Sonnentags Verglüh'n,
wenn sich Rosenschleier senken
segnend auf der Menschheit Müh'n?

Sahst du nie auf seiner Reise
das verlorene Wolkenboot?
Jeden Abend schwimmt es leise
durch das letzte Sonnenrot.

Sieh', das Boot trägt unsre Tränen,
jeden unerfüllten Traum,
jedes Leid und jedes Sehnen
durch der Schönheit lichten Raum.

Durch des Abends heil'ge Gluten
fährt es hin am Firmament,
bis es in den Sonnenfluten
still mit seiner Last verbrennt.

Rogue antibodies could be driving severe COVID-19


Evidence is beginning to emerge that some of the systemic organ damage in severe cases of Covid-19 may be caused by the virus inducing the body to create auto-antibodies against its own tissues. What ELSE does this damn virus have in store?

I think that's referring to cytokine storms. In essence, the immune system goes berserk in desperation and starts wrecking everything.

Time for a little #humor.
