You and I are shooting stars
Two tickets for the ferry
We danced till the morning
Under the neon rain
We're changing cities
Impacting our sleep
Yesterday you were open
Today you're nobody to me
Prints on your arms
A cassette tape recorder
Time is calm water
Whoever misses the sign in the sky
Will lose eight legs
Again in the world there is a void
And in the medusa, an octopus
Medusa1, medusa, medusa, we're friends
Medusa, medusa, medusa, we're friends
Laughing not in good spirit
I pull the trigger
I'm finishing off your mess
It falls to the floor
Sparing your purity
Your white insides
And bottomless eyes
You're an actress from my dreams
You and I aren't friends
Having played silent
You came by for an hour
But you're staying with me
Read to me till morning
Burn me up all night
There's no use in trying to tame

Mysterious Ball Lightning Created in the Lab

Ball lightning is one of the most mysterious phenomena in nature. Now scientists have created a laboratory version of the eerie floating orbs using technology taken from a common microwave oven.
The work could help scientists figure out how the lightning forms in nature and lead to practical applications that harness its power.
In the wild, the little bundles of energy are typically only a few centimeters across, although some have been reported to be the size of beach balls or larger. They are closely associated with regular lightning and thunderstorms and have been seen in many different colors.
Witnesses report hissing sounds and an acrid ozone odor when the lightning balls appear. The vivid apparitions normally hover or float around for only a few seconds before vanishing suddenly, either silently or with an explosive bang.
Although people have known about ball lightning for centuries, scientists have yet to come up with an explanation that accounts for all of the strange properties.
Eli Jerby and Vladimir Dikhtyar from the University of Tel Aviv in Israel created a laboratory version of ball lightning using a "microwave drill." The device consists of a 600-watt magnetron taken from a domestic microwave oven and uses a powerful microwave beam to bore through solid objects.
The researchers aimed the beam through a pointed rod and into a solid object made from glass, silicon and other materials.
The energy from the drill created a molten hot spot in the solid object; when the drill was pulled away, it dragged some of the superheated material along with it, creating a fire column [video] that then collapsed into a bright fireball that floated and bounced [video] across the ceiling of the metal enclosure.
"The fireball [looked] like a hot jellyfish, quivering and buoyant in the air," Jerby said.
The glowing object measured just slightly over an inch across and lasted only about 10 milliseconds. The work was detailed earlier this month in the journal Physical Review Letters.
Glowing fluff balls
The composition of the laboratory lightning ball still needs to be verified, but it appeared to resemble those found in nature.
"Our experiment confirms to some extent the theory that ball lightning originates from hot spots in the ground created by normal lightning," Jerby told LiveScience.
According to one popular theory, ball lightning forms when lightning strikes the ground and vaporizes mineral grains in the soil. The vaporized nanoparticles could then link together into chains and form a fluffy ball of silicon that floats on the wind. The particles react with oxygen in the air and release light as they burn.
Jerby thinks that his laboratory lightning balls could one day find practical uses in industry.
"My imagination leads me to speculate on applications like 'bulb-less' light sources, coating and deposition or energy production," he said.
Awesome footage of sea turtle and man-o-war. One of the deadliest jellyfish in the world!
Cheryl & Carly's shark cage experience in Oahu, Hawaii.
Some video taken by me and some video taken by Captain Scott of North Shore Shark Adventures (highly recommended!).
According to the captains these are Galapagos and Sandbar sharks. There were even a few fish and jellyfish in the cage with us but I didn't get them on video...Enjoy!
Awesome new exhibit at the Akron Zoo, and a great excuse to create a test film. Shot using a Sony CX12 using all on camera settings. No, color adjustment or image adjustment in post. Straight video made into a little short film starring jellyfish. Sponge Bob would be proud!

All 4 operation modes: (1)Slinky - like the old toy. Ask someone over 45. (2)Gauge - responds to ambient sound. Pendulum, when quiet. (3)Radar - like old radar display. (4)Jellyfish . Dekatrons are up/down counting tubes, that predate ICs. Only one dot is glowing at anyone time. These patterns are generated with the help of a modern computer chip.

*******InternetSponsoringNow**** There is a really common trend among network marketers these days.
You see, and when you get more into internet network marketing, you’ll see more of this.
People, especially Network Marketers are just deathly afraid of asking for a sale. It’s just kinda weird ya know? People want to make money, but yet, they still melt like jellyfish when it comes time to just simply ask.
You might have heard the “old school” mantra of ‘its not selling, its telling”.
What a bunch of baloney!!!
Your MLM opportunity is a business, right? How do businesses make their money? They make sales. The more sales they make, the more money they make.
However, way too many Network Marketers are too squeemish about just asking for the sale. They will go on and on about how great their product is (which is the absolute wrong approach BTW), but when it comes down to it, they never ask the simple question, “Are you interested in this? Would you like to go ahead and buy it?”
Sounds simple huh? It is! If they say no, who cares right? As a network marketer, your job, and the money you earn from it depends on making real sales.
Just move on.
Here is a little thing though, if you keep wussing out, your never going to make any sales, product, business, online or offline. Lets just face it.
This is very different than just asking anyone and everyone to join your business or buy your product. When it comes into play is when you’ve gotten someone actually somewhat interested in what you have to offer.
It’s like popping the “big question”. So, yes, those wimpy network marketers that don’t ask for the sale and don’t get them, and then they have skinny kids.
The next time you get close, just go ahead and ask for the sale. It doesn’t have to be fancy, slick (its better if its not) you’ve just gotta do it.

The “real work” of the beginning of the Cambrian Explosion may in actuality be as short as a two to three million year time frame (Hugh Ross, Jonathan Wells) which is well within what is termed the "geologic resolution time" i.e. The time frame for the main part of the Cambrian Explosion apparently can't be shortened any further due to limitations of our accurately dating this ancient time period more precisely.
"The Cambrian Explosion was so short that it is below the resolution of the fossil record. It could have happened overnight. So we don't know the duration of the Cambrian Explosion. We just know that it was very, very, fast."

The scant "track" evidence for worms in the pre-Cambrian has now been brought into question:
Discovery Of Giant Roaming Deep Sea Protist Provides New Perspective On Animal Evolution:
Excerpt: This is the first time a single-celled organism has been shown to make such animal-like traces. The finding is significant, because similar fossil grooves and furrows found from the Precambrian era, as early as 1.8 billion years ago, have always been attributed to early evolving multicellular animals. "If our giant protists were alive 600 million years ago and the track was fossilized, a paleontologist unearthing it today would without a shade of doubt attribute it to a kind of large, multicellular, bilaterally symmetrical animal," says Matz, an assistant professor of integrative biology. "We now have to rethink the fossil record."
Interestingly, "simple" Jellyfish and Sponges appeared suddenly in the fossil record a few ten million years before the Cambrian Explosion, and have remained virtually unchanged since they first appeared in the fossil record. Moreover, contrary to evolutionary thinking, Jellyfish and Sponges appear to have essential purpose in preparing the ecosystem for the Cambrian Explosion that was to follow.
Marine animals cause a stir - July 2009
Excerpt: Kakani Katija and John Dabiri used field measurements of jellyfish swimming in a remote island lake, combined with a new theoretical model, to demonstrate that the contribution of living organisms to ocean mixing via this mechanism is substantial — of the same order of magnitude as winds and tides. (Winds and tides, due to their prevention of stagnation, are known to be essential for life on earth.)
Sponges Determine Coral Reef's Nutrient Cycle
Excerpt: Sponges, which have worldwide distribution in the oceans, filter water. They take up planktonic particles such as bacteria and excrete inorganic nutrients. In turn, these nutrients can facilitate the growth of marine plants and other organisms. Sponges filter water at a phenomenal rate: if the seawater were to remain stationary, the sponges would have completely pumped it away within five minutes,,,, these organisms play a key role in the marine nutrient cycle due to their incredible capacity to convert enormous quantities of organic plankton into inorganic material (nutrients). *******www.sciencedaily****/releases/2005/09/050917085649.htm
Fossils of all types of sponges alive today have been found virtually unchanged in rocks dated from 580 to 523 million years ago. Sponges with photosynthesizing endosymbionts produce up to three times more oxygen than they consume, as well as more organic matter than they consume. (Wikipedia)

My guess is that, as with photosynthetic bacteria, sulfate reducing bacteria, sponges, and jellyfish, Ediacara biota will ultimately be found to have a essential biogeochemical role in preparing the earth for more advanced life to appear in the Cambrian explosion.
