How the world will end, in one chart

How the world will end, in one chart

We all know that in the distant future, the year 2000, robotic beings will rule the world. But what about the future after that? Well, that’s where the above timeline from the BBC comes in. 5.4 billion years from now, for instance, the Sun will run out of fuel. 110 trillion years from now, all stars will run out of fuel. 100 quintillion years from now, the Earth — if it hasn’t been destroyed already — will have decayed enough to be swallowed up by the Sun (in whatever diminished state it takes at that point).

#IOwnMyLife: ‘Capitalist Pig’ Jonathan Hoenig proposes new minimum wage rule

Ooo … good question! Let’s think about that:

Heh. That free health care doesn’t come cheap!

We’re gonna be paying for Obamacare — in more ways than one — for many years to come. So it’s only fair that the government do its part to soften the blow, right?

Amen!

NYT asks for comments about Black Friday; ‘Disease, doom and death’ ensues

The New York Times asked readers what “Black Friday” means to them.

John Sexton of Breitbart.com tweeted out some of the responses, which are nothing short of … completely expected:

Sexton later noted:

So some of these New York Times commmenters might actually be contributing to the Black Friday madness? Maybe the NYT will do a story about that.

APPLEBY IS PLAYING IN PAIN; GOLFER'S WIFE WAS KILLED LESS THAN 3 WEEKS AGO.

It is the little things in life that professional golfer Stuart

Appleby misses most about his late wife, Renay.

When they arrived to new cities and drove to golf courses together,

Stuart would drive while Renay would navigate the route. Once there,

Renay – a former top amateur player who caddied for Stuart during parts

of his rookie season on the PGA Tour in 1996 – could help him plot his

strategy, or offer a few simple words of encouragement at those times he

needed them most.

Even on nights when he would hit practice balls until darkness

fell, they managed to have thoughtful conversations that delivered a

quality ending to an otherwise hectic day.

“There are a million little things that you miss,”

Appleby said through intermittent tears Tuesday at Sahalee Country Club,

where he’ll return to competition at the 80th PGA Championship today. “It’s not the big things. It’s all the little things.

They all add up. They make someone’s life.”

Renay Appleby died less than three weeks ago after being struck by

a cab outside a train station in London shortly before she and Stuart

were scheduled to board a train to Paris. She was 25.

Stuart Appleby, 27, has been advised that the best way to deal with

this unthinkable tragedy is to believe in his heart that Renay is still

here with him. So he talks a lot about her, doesn’t shy from

mentioning her name and he even laughs when retelling a joke the two

might have shared. A keen sense of humor was one of Renay’s

strongest suits.

He tries to convince his own mind she still is here with him, and

then he encounters the cruelest hoax of the approach: Several times

Tuesday, Appleby stood in the fairway during his practice round, cutting

a solitary figure against the backdrop of majestic Douglas fir and red

cedar trees, peering across the gallery ropes, scanning past faceless

fans.

He always could find Renay in the crowd. And no longer is she there

for him.

“The toughest times are . . . probably when you do a lot of

thinking,” he said. “You have so many questions, and you

don’t have answers. You just wish that things were

different.”

Appleby is an Australian who makes his U.S. home in Orlando, where

he and Renay moved into an Isleworth house that became her spirited

passion shortly before the 1998 golf season.

He said he faced two options after his wife’s tragic death:

“I could dig myself into a hole and lose all the potential I

had,” he said, or he could consider himself lucky to have

known Renay for the years he did. He chooses the latter.

“We had a lot of good times,” he said. “I feel like

she was first prize of a raffle, so to speak, in life and picking

partners. I was lucky enough to win her.”

Appleby arrived to Sahalee knowing that returning to the game he

loves is what Renay would have wanted him to do.

“She’d have told him, `Get off your (butt), get back on the

horse and go,’ ” said Robert Allenby, one of his closest

friends. “It’s the quietest times that are the toughest. This is

the first time he’s been on his own, staying by

himself.”

Added Frank Nobilo, “Something like this will either mar you or

make you. It’s a terrible, terrible tragedy. Hopefully, Stuart is

strong enough to deal with this.”

Renay White and Stuart Appleby met at a luggage carousel at Los

Angeles International Airport in 1992, when they were part of an

Australian golf team set to compete against U.S. teams in a handful of

exhibitions. Renay did not like Stuart at first, mistaking his shyness

for snobbery. When Appleby’s long-time coach, Steve, paired the two

for a match, Renay asked out. They played. A month later, they began

dating.

They married in December 1996, and as a team, they rode out the

highs and lows of his pro golf career. He struggled as a rookie in

’96 but broke through in 1997 to win the Honda Classic and surpass

$1 million in earnings. He was in the midst of another strong season in

1998.

Twenty-one days ago, in an instant, their life together was

shattered. Last week, Stuart sat in a cemetery in Australia, placing

fresh flowers on his wife’s grave. There are so many questions to

which he never will receive answers.

Sadly, Appleby now finds himself all alone again in one of the

loneliest games in sports. He said he will learn to share moments once

shared with Renay with his friends and family.

Appleby will make the journey ahead in many stages. Getting through

his wife’s funeral was a step. Returning to golf will be a step.

Getting back to Orlando, and to his home in Isleworth, will be another

big step, one he dreaded not long ago. But now he knows he must face

that as part of the evolution of surviving his tragedy.

“You don’t forget somebody like Renay, someone that means

that much to you,” he said.

Incredible Spiral Galaxy Is 10.7 Billion Years Old

Incredible-spiral-galaxy-is-10-7-billion-years-old-b805e714a1

Astronomers have discovered the universe’s most ancient spiral galaxy yet, a cosmic structure that dates back roughly 10.7 billion years, a new study reveals.

The galactic find, discovered by researchers using NASA’s [Big Bang to Now in 10 Easy Steps], comes as something of a surprise. Other galaxies from such early epochs are clumpy and irregular, not strikingly symmetrical like the newfound spiral, which broadly resembles our own Milky Way.

“The fact that this galaxy exists is astounding,” study lead author David Law, of the University of Toronto, said in a statement. “Current wisdom holds that such ‘grand-design’ spiral galaxies simply didn’t exist at such an early time in the history of the universe.”

Scanning Ancient Galaxies

Law and his colleagues used Hubble to snap photos and study the properties of about 300 distant galaxies. The newfound galaxy, which goes by the name BX442, was the only spiral in the bunch, researchers said.

BX442’s light has taken about 10.7 billion years to reach us, meaning astronomers are now seeing it as it looked just 3 billion years after the Big Bang that created the universe. [Big Bang to Now in 10 Easy Steps]

Today, spiral galaxies like our own Milky Way are common throughout the cosmos. But that wasn’t the case long ago, when galaxy collisions were much more common, gas raining in from the intergalactic medium fed more dramatic star formation and black holes grew faster than they do now, researchers said.

“The vast majority of old galaxies look like train wrecks,” said co-author Alice Shapley of UCLA. “Our first thought was, why is this one so different, and so beautiful?”

Studying BX442

To learn more about BX442, the team employed a different telescope, the Keck Observatory atop Hawaii’s dormant Mauna Kea volcano. They used a Keck spectrograph to study light emitted from 3,600 targets in and around the Milky Way.

This information confirmed that BX442 is indeed a rotating spiral, and not two disk-shaped galaxies that happened to line up in the image.

“We first thought this could just be an illusion, and that perhaps we were being led astray by the picture,” Shapley said. “What we found when we took this spectral image of this galaxy is that the spiral arms do belong to this galaxy; it wasn’t an illusion. It’s rotating and has spiral arms. Not only does it look like a rotating disk galaxy — it really is. We were blown away.”

The Hubble and Keck observations also revealed a companion dwarf galaxy residing near BX442. The scientists think the gravitational interaction between the two galaxies may be creating BX442’s spiral shape, possibly explaining how it became so different than its galactic contemporaries. (The Milky Way has its own satellite dwarf galaxy, known as Sagittarius, that may help produce its spiral arms.)

The companion is likely to merge with BX442 eventually, researchers said. Simulations also show that BX442’s spiral will probably dissipate within 100 million years or so, they added.

The astronomers plan to continue studying BX442 for further insights that could shed light on how spiral galaxies like our own Milky Way come to be.

“BX442 represents a link between early galaxies that are much more turbulent and the rotating spiral galaxies that we see around us,” Shapley said.

“Indeed, this galaxy may highlight the importance of merger interactions at any cosmic epoch in creating grand design spiral structure.”
