The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, one of my favorite space probes ever, takes amazing high-res pictures of the lunar surface. But more than that, it can map the elevations of lunar features using shadows as a guide. Knowing the angles of the Sun, the Moon, and its viewing position, it can accurately gauge the elevations of the Moon’s surface as it takes image after image, orbit after orbit.
Racism has gone underground, upgraded its look to be more stylish and user friendly. In fact, it’s undergone such a dramatic face lift that racists themselves don’t even know they’re racist….
A RELATIVELY new field, called interpersonal neurobiology, draws its vigor from one of the great discoveries of our era: that the brain is constantly rewiring itself based on daily life. In the end, what we pay the most attention to defines us. How you choose to spend the irreplaceable hours of your life literally transforms you.
All relationships change the brain — but most important are the intimate bonds that foster or fail us, altering the delicate circuits that shape memories, emotions and that ultimate souvenir, the self.
“It was such a gift to see and hear some of the most brilliant minds on the planet all under one roof. There are no words for the magic that happens energetically when so many high-conscious beings come together with the intention for good.”

Greetings, Internet Family,
This scoop is from my Pinterest Board “Now Playing in Funk Sanctum Radio.” Just discovered that I can pin album covers from songs currently playing directly to Pinterest from my station page and I think that is very cool so had to share! :)
What you are likely to hear if you tune in now:
It seems like everyone is jumping on the Pinterest bandwagon these days and creating boards of their favorite images.
Pinterest is creating a new type of online sharer, the social image curator.
This activity goes way beyond normal photo sharing that’s done on Flickr or Facebook.
Users are connecting with images to self-identify with their needs, wants and desires.
It’s important for marketers to understand this trend and learn from it in order to create and display images that users want to pin and share.
Visual Bookmarking and Storytelling
The truth is Pinterest gives users a care-free way of categorizing content on their terms.
Finding and consuming information is much easier and quicker when it’s in a visual format.
Let’s not forget the current fascination with data visualization, a.k.a. Infographics - http://bit.ly/H2u1CI .
Those creative illustrations combine information with compelling graphics (hence the name) to create perfect vehicles for storytelling.
Developing a Visual Content Strategy
Professionals in marketing, PR and social media functions not only need to quickly learn how to curate images for business-branded accounts, they need to think about content marketing in the visual sense. That means developing a visual strategy for blog posts, white papers, research insights, and other collateral produced for external consumption.
Visual Content Drives Traffic
Start inserting URLs into your images to seamlessly create digital pathways to destination sites. In doing so, you may boost your SEO rankings in the process on sites that follow directives for links. (Note: Pinterest has implemented a “no follow” rule on their site.) While the majority of images on many sites represent consumer goods, there’s also plenty of opportunity to drive interested buyers of B2B services through imagery as well.

Have you ever experienced contagious laughter? I have. Sometimes you just can (Love it! RT @glamourmag: Spread some joy like this woman did Ppl may hve thought she was crazy @ 1st but then loved it!
Robin Good: Sworly is Pinterest for audio tracks. If there is a music track on YouTube, Sworly will find it and let you pin it.
“Rather than encourage users to create interesting collections of images, Sworly brings the Pinterest approach to sharing music.
After logging in with Facebook (yes there’s annoyingly no other choice) you can start to add songs to Sworly if they haven’t already been added.
…At first glance, the ‘Add song’ feature is a little confusing, but it’s actually quite easy to use. Simply enter the artist name and song you want to share, and Sworly will automatically find the best video for you.
Add optional tags and a description and post it to your profile.”
N.B.: There is currently no way to delete a song from your profile.
No collections or playlists (yet).

image should be a text explaining what is in the image. In the photojournalistic world, it is called the W’s : Where, When, What, Who, Why.
Oh this is so cool! This is another new tool for taking a static photo and turning it into a story. I love the examples shared in this blog post. I’m getting lots of ideas already and know you will too once you review the material here.
Now go have fun with your photos!
Google maps brings the world to your desktop - well, most of it, anyway. Here are 10 locations that governments and other entities have blurred or removed from satellite photos.
A user of geospatial technologies is not free to explore all places of the Earth with equal levels of specificity. Why? Where? How come?

Einstein’s theory of gravity and quantum physics are expected to merge at the Planck-scale of extremely high energies and on very short distances. Now scientists have proposed a new quantum experiment using Planck-mass mirrors.
