Supernova Remnant is a Textbook Case (NASA, Chandra, 1/30/07)

Editor’s Note: This image from 2007 shows Chandra X-ray & VLA Radio Images of G11.2-0.3.

G11.2-0.3 is a circularly symmetric supernova remnant that contains a dense, rotating dead star at its center, representing a textbook case of what the remnant of an exploding star should look like after a couple thousand years. When a massive star collapses, the outer layers of the star are blown away in an extremely energetic explosion. Depending on the mass of the original star, a dense object such as a neutron star or a black hole, can form and be left behind at the explosion’s center. Such a neutron star, known as a "pulsar" when it rapidly rotates, can be kicked by the thermonuclear shock wave created when the star exploded, causing it to race through space at millions of miles per hour.

By combining X-ray and radio observations, astronomers have evidence that G11.2-0.3 is likely the result of the explosive death of such a massive star, perhaps witnessed in 386 A.D. Radio observations measure the remnant’s expansion rate, which, in turn, can be used to calculate how long ago the star exploded. The radio data is consistent with association of the supernova remnant with the "guest star" reported by Chinese astronomers nearly 2,000 years ago. Chandra’s ability to pinpoint the pulsar at nearly the very center of G11.2-0.3 also supports the idea that this debris field could have been created around the time of the Chinese observations. Surprisingly, the age of the pulsar determined from the X-ray and radio data differs from the standard pulsar age estimate, usually determined from how fast it is spinning. In this case, the so-called spin parameters suggest the G11.2-0.3 is 10 times older than the remnant age. This argues strongly that young pulsar spin ages can be very misleading and should be considered with caution.

#105 Suica rechargeable IO (イオ) card for JR East
prepaid credit card
Image by Nemo’s great uncle
This non-contact (RFID) IC card ("smart card") holds up to ¥20,000 in electronic money ("e-cash") for JR East train lines [Japanese], kiosks, and other 駅中(ekinaka) facilities inside JR East stations.

"Super Urban Intelligent Card" (Suica, see Wikipedia: Japanese, English (old), Deutsch) is a multi-application platform (based on Sony’s Felica [English] technology*) for JR commuter passes, JR railway tickets, e-cash, building access, and other appliations.

* Other Felica applications include JR West’s ICOCA(イコカ) cards, Bit Wallet’s Edy cards, Kansai’s PiTaPa(ピタパ) card’s, Hong Kong’s Octopus (八達通) cards…

As of October 26, 2004, sales hit 10 million users—which is not all that many when one considers that, as of April 1, 2005, JR East not longer accepts their old prepaid "IO" or "Orange" cards. I had to fork over a ¥500 deposit for this card.

NTT DoCoMo has also come on board, with cell phones incorporating the commuter pass version of the IC. KDDI au, Japan’s #2 cellular operator, will follow in January 2006.

The latest news is that coverage with extend to bus companies in the Kantō Plain in 2006.

There are two ways to "charge" this card: (1) cash at a JR East ticket machine or (2) JR East branded View credit card at a VIEW ALTTE ATM corner or JR East ticket machine with a VIEW sticker.

Update

First the cards were only for JR ticket machines. Next, kiosks and convenience stores inside stations started taking them. Now a Family Mart convenience store hundreds of meters from the nearest JR station it accepts both Suica and the older Quo prepaid cards.

The McCarthy McCain Platform

Image by DawnOne
Sarah Palin quotes "Joe the Plumber", whose real name is Sam (I am) , on socialism. Never mind that "JOE" lied about his identity, income, and qualifications as a plumber (or lack thereof). On socialism, he’s an authority. The McCain platform is sounding more like McCarthyism with each desperate attempt to scare the US voters into the Republican camp.

On another note, I hope that Obama’s grandmother lives long enough to see him become President! For a second term!

Sarah Palin thinks she’s talking to French President Sarkozy
Hilarious prank call!

NEWS
"Sarah Palin’s Alaska." is to be aired on "VERGE- Planet Green’s all-new primetime programming destination"

WRITE DISCOVERY CHANNEL AN EMAIL about it!

For example, I wrote-

You seriously intend giving Sarah Palin money to host a show on VERGE- Planet Green? So she can further her plan to influence American public opinion with her inane but ultimately dangerous views on ecology?

Please… reconsider airing "Sarah Palin’s Alaska." Be assured I WILL NOT WATCH IT, and will urge all my friends to do likewise. I will also be less likely to turn on your channel in the future if this is the kind of programming you intend to pursue in your new line-up.

Sincerely,
(ME)

Trees cocooned in spiders webs after flooding in Sindh, Pakistan
free credit report government
Image by DFID – UK Department for International Development
An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in spiders webs. People in this part of Sindh have never seen this phenonemon before – but they also report that there are now less mosquitos than they would expect, given the amount of stagnant, standing water that is around.

One local theory is the mosquitos are getting caught in the spiders webs. This would be one blessing for the people of Sindh, facing so many other hardships after the floods.

UK aid – in response to the Pakistan floods – is helping millions of survivors return home and rebuild their lives.

My charge card pays me rebates!

< img alt="cashback credit report card"src ="https://www.free-credit-check.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/32499330453_d824204de0.jpg"size ="400"/ > Photo by Canadian Pacific I spent 4.12 in January on
my charge card, however I gained.49 in refunds, so I only had to pay 9.63. Bank card in The United States and Canada as well as the Far East are far more likely to supply some kind of benefit points, cashback refunds or other benefits compared to in Europe. This is due to the fact that EU has laws as well as laws on how much compensation the financial institutions can charge the card-accepting sellers. I count on much of EU, the maximum charge chargeable to vendors is just 0.3%of the internet card costs. Right here in Canada, the costs are as high as 1.2 %to 3%. Because of this the banks make great deals of fees from the vendors when customers use their charge card. In order to attract clients as well as attract holders to make use of charge card rather of bank debit cards, banks supply benefits to charge card owners. Basically, the merchants get shafted while the financial institutions earn costs as well as cardholders gain rewards. One of my credit report cards supplies a 1%to

2%cash refunds on my costs, so my regular monthly bank card invoice is actually LESS than the quantity I spent in the month. I repay my balance every month, so I never build up rate of interest fees.
