Kiss all astronomers and skywatchers because they're in for a rare treat tonight with the longest lunar eclipse of the century.

This is the longest lunar eclipse in the century which will coincide with Mars' closest approach to Earth in 15 years to offer a thrilling astronomical double bill.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon and the sun are on exact opposite sides of Earth so that our planet blocks the sunlight that normally reaches the moon.

US Misses Court Deadline

Midnight tonight was the #US Court-imposed deadline for #Trump and #ICE to complete reuniting the families some say they cruelly separated at the #Mexico border.

The government claims many families have been reunited, but there is no way to know the number exactly because the federal government’s numbers aren’t precise. We don’t know what the fate of the families who have been reunited is and how quickly parents will be getting deported after being reunited with their kids.

What about blocking any person's access to tv channels being Un-American? To do this to #FLOTUS is not acceptable.

Doesn't freedom of speech also applies to freedom to listen, look or watch anything less is the action of a dictator?

Dictators do this kind of blocking to citizens. They don’t get CNN or MSNBC in China, North Korea, Cuba, Russia cable TV nor Facebook, Twitter, Google, and many alternative views.

Do you remember the punk who would throw a rock and run away because he was too chicken to stay and face the consequences?

Members of US Congress have now reached an all-time low although the US House is scheduled to adjourn this afternoon for an unearned five-week Sumer vacation, as conservatives file articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Are US taxpayers ready to pay additional billions of dollars for another Trump creation? POTUS will spend $12 billion to assist farmers hurt by his tariffs.

Trouble ahead and tariffs in line as they tear into our economic behind. While POTUS tries to tamp down growing criticism of his own ineffective trade policies by blaming someone else. This time it is not Obama or the Democrats. He blames China.

NO Not BS, but PS as in Public Service. There are activists and organizers who have been extremely effective. One individual comes to mind, but there are others and many more are urgently needed.

Some public servants perfected the craft on the streets, responding to injustices by helping people to reach their goals.
Let's create an opportunity with an eye toward training folks to solve real-world problems in hopes to spread these ideas.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and many multiples of that have been written about an
iconic moment caught when the Group of Seven major advanced nations met last month. President
Trump’s threatened tariffs had roiled relations with most of his colleagues who came to Canada that
weekend. Leaders representing almost half of the world economy were prepared to rebut the
president’s assertion that “trade wars are good and easy to win.” However, Trump came with a fresh
