NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope returned to normal operations late Friday, Oct. 26, and completed its first science observations on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 2:10 AM EDT. The observations were of the distant, star-forming galaxy DSF2237B-1-IR and were taken in infrared wavelengths with the Wide Field Camera 3 instrument. The return to conducting science comes after successfully recovering a backup gyroscope, or gyro, that had replaced a failed gyro three weeks earlier.
I just got back from the 2018 GAME conference. It was an amazing experience!
The goal of the board is to empower Muslim youth across Europe to reclaim their own narratives and work for an inclusive world that acknowledges the dignity and rights of all. I was thrilled to join with this process and contribute my knowledge to young Muslims living in Europe.
A new terrorism database analysis shows almost two-thirds of the terror attacks in the United States last year were carried out by right-wing extremists.
Taller people have a greater risk of cancer because they are bigger and so have more cells in their bodies in which dangerous mutations can occur, new research has suggested.
In other science news, physicists have determined that there is a direct relation between the mass of an object and its weight.

Familiar with Colonial life reenactment villages? The Apocalypse Experience is...similar, but instead of Colonial times, it's THE END TIMES. A production environment meant to bring the words of the Book of Revelation to life, complete with souvenirs, restaurant, and laser tag.

Quote: Glass sculptor Wesley Fleming creates life-size and anatomically correct sculptures of a variety of bizarre and well-known insects. The colorful creatures are small enough to balance gently on the tip of his finger, like a neon orange spider barely larger than his nail.
Hidden in a bend of the Mississippi River just south of New Orleans, 29 concrete bunkers lie on a grid of dirt and grass roads. Some hold remnants from the past — 40-year-old gas masks and biohazard signs still hang on a wall. Most of them have been abandoned for decades. But inside two of those bunkers, 15 million fish eyes stare at the walls through the glass of their jars. This is the Royal D. Suttkus Fish Collection, the largest collection of preserved fish in the world, and almost no one knows it exists.
Personality tests are hugely popular, though if you ask working psychologists, they’ll tell you the results are little better than astrological signs. But a new study, based on huge sets of personality data representing 1.5 million people, has persuaded one of the staunchest critics of personality tests to conclude that maybe distinct personality types exist, after all.
In a report published Monday in the journal Nature Human Behavior, researchers at Northwestern University in Illinois identify four personality types: reserved, role models, average and self-centered.
The new approach was nothing like the basis for widely used personality tests such as the Myers-Briggs, which spits out a personality type with acronyms like INTJ...or ESFP...
A pear seedling selection named Bradford was cloned by the gazillion to become the ubiquitous street tree of America’s postwar suburban expansion. Then it turned invasive.
Its invasive tendencies became widely noticed by the late 1990s, and by the mid-2000s, it had become a weed in the District and 19 states, from Texas to New York. “While callery pear was introduced with the best of intentions, it now seems that a plague is truly upon us,” botanist Michael Vincent wrote at the time. It has now spread to 29 states.

There are at least 15 Muslim candidates running for political positions in Minnesota this election season. And while there are no official statistics, many observers believe that is significantly more than in any previous election.
The irony here is that Muslims are becoming increasingly engaged in politics because of Islamophobia. The more the Islamophobia industry ramps up the rhetoric, the more Muslims become involved.
