News, Radio, and Roger: Top stories Katie Bouman is the 29Katie Bouman: The year-old scientist behind first image of black hole Video: Katie Bouman's> woman behind the first 2016 TED Talk, How to take a picture of a black black hole image hole Boston.com 1 hour ago BBC.com Fox News 8 hours ago 6 hours ago More for katie bouman friendly-neighborhood-patriarch: friendly-neighborhood-ehrhardt: catalogingthedeclineofthewest: Headlines, meet reality. Reality, meet headlines. Her documented “work” on the project is janitorial! MIT news article on the image and the team: http://news.mit.edu/2019/mit-haystack-first-image-black-hole-0410 From the article: An international team of over 200 astronomers, including scientists from MIT’s Haystack Observatory, has captured the first direct images of a black hole. They accomplished this remarkable feat by coordinating the power of eight major radio observatories on four continents, to work together as a virtual, Earth-sized telescope. In a series of papers published today in a special issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters, the team has revealed four images of the supermassive black hole at the heart of Messier 87, or M87, a galaxy within the Virgo galaxy cluster, 55 million light years from Earth. … The Haystack EHT team includes John Barrett, Roger Cappallo, Joseph Crowley, Mark Derome, Kevin Dudevoir, Michael Hecht, Lynn Matthews, Kotaro Moriyama, Michael Poirier, Alan Rogers, Chester Ruszczyk, Jason SooHoo, Don Sousa, Michael Titus, and Alan Whitney. Additional contributors were MIT alumni Daniel Palumbo, Katie Bouman, Lindy Blackburn, Sera Markoff, and Bill Freeman, a professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. She’s listed as an “additional contributor.”  Topkek. reblogging because ive seen katie boumans name several times but this is the first time ive heard about andrew chael. he deserves to be recognized. 850k lines of code is no joke.

Brains, Energy, and Food: "You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass." - Bruce Lee Every thought we have activates a cluster of neurons, they send an action potential down the axons to cross synapse that releases neurotransmitters. If we keep reactivating this network, it becomes stronger because surrounding glial cell feed the cluster and it becomes thicker and stronger. We are literally talking ourselves out of success. If something goes wrong in your life and you make the mistake of making it personal telling yourself a shit story about "how it is", you’re dirtying up your mind with dangerous shit. All of our fears are self-created. They form in the brain's default mode network and are greatly amplified when the brain's alarm and avoidance network is on. This drives our decisions because emotion supersedes thought. We fear rejection, embarrassment, loss, and abandonment, powerful emotions that override positive thought. For most people they are focused on what could go wrong and feel embarrassed; this is EXACTLY what creates these emotions that are holding us back. There's a 90-second rule which states that, if one can redirect their focus off the bullshit story, the network will stop firing neurotransmitters down the action potential; that kills the emotion. Negative Emotion is just like too much alcohol, we need to sober up! Most people cannot do this; 15 months ago I couldn't either when it counted the most because there is an underlying cause of stress, cellular stress, which puts the brain in the SAME CHAOS, alarm and avoidance. I call this red stress, and it's in the food supply in the form of AGE's, ALE's, aldehydes, estrogen mimics, microplastics, mitotoxins etc. Your body is at war, and it needs cofactors to fight each battle, and most people lack there too. This war must be financed, it diverts energy to fight battle after battle. You will experience this as being tired, lose focus, become moody and stressed. Wouldn't this energy be better-spent financing focus, passion, and success? Take out red stress💫 I'm building a free course on doing just that, it's opening us soon.

America, Ben Franklin, and Disappointed: The Constitution should have a warning label, failure to read and understand this document Will result in deathh and slavery A WARNING LABEL. Not mandatory but just a simple WARNING! The more I try to understand my oath to defend the constitution against enemies foreign and domestic the more I am disappointed at the idea. How can you defend a document for people that have never read it , understood it or care for it. It’s impossible to defend a document that half of our people have a liberal indoctrination & perception of it. A document you aren’t allowed to defend. If we TRULLY believed in the idea of defending something as important as our Bill Of Rights, groups like Antifa or the Communist Party of America wouldn’t exist. Unconstitutional laws like gun control laws wouldn’t exist. If this doesn't melt your heart, you don't have one. "You have a Republic..if you can keep it." Ben Franklin "The office of governmentis not to confer happiness but to give men opportunity to work out happiness for themselves. " William Ellery Channing 1780-1842 "You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve YOUR freedom. I hope you will make a good use of it.” John Adams "If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington "Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, because if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.” Daniel Webster
