Happy Birthday to the real Space-force. The original and still the greatest National Aeronautics and Space Administration #NASA.

On this date, Christopher Columbus set sail to the new world and landed in America. Also, the space agency was officially born on July 29, 1958, when Republicans were real patriots and warriors. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act bringing the agency into existence and global admiration. 

Live Long and Prosper

When someone greets you with “live long and prosper,” they are telling you to have a good one, and they'll catch you later.

It's a “Vulcan” saying out of the Star Trek franchise, popularized by “Dr. Spock.” Today, many “Trekkies” use the saying when they say goodbye to each other.

'Live long and prosper is an abbreviated version of a traditional Jewish religious blessing.

It came to a wider public in the Star Trek TV series, where it was used there by the character Mr. Spock (actor Leonard Nimoy, himself Jewish) as the greeting of the Vulcan people.

NASA Strikes Back

NASA Issues an extremely rare rebuke of Russia for using the International Space Station to promote their Ukraine invasion.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is an independent agency of the U.S. federal government responsible for the civil space program, aeronautics research, and space research.

The agency said Russia used the space station to promote politics, which it said is ‘fundamentally inconsistent with its purpose.

Since the 80s "Africa" has become a worldwide sensation. It's one of a string of hits that Toto has had over the last 40-plus years.

Do you remember when the leader of the Republican Party called the continent of Africa "shithole" counties during a meeting and asked why the USA can't have more immigrants from Norway, which by the way has now joined NATO? https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/01/shithole-countries…

While most human beings breathe in polluted air, it is taking away a couple of years from our global collective life expectancy.

Air pollution affects every organ in our body. The contamination of the indoor or outdoor environment by any chemical, physical or biological agent modifies the natural characteristics of the atmosphere. Household combustion devices, motor vehicles, industrial facilities, and forest fires are common sources of air pollution.

CUPS FOR US

Have you noticed athletes competing on TV with their decoration of cupping therapy skin marks all over their toned bodies?

These marks are making it much easier for the sports broadcaster to recognize the right swimmer in their lane. Funny enough, we thought those circles were another invention, to make swimmers swim faster.

Not so, cupping therapy is an ancient alternative medicine, increasingly popular amongst athletes. It helps to ease pain, muscle inflammation, blood issues, and relaxation.

Severe thunderstorms are producing large hail and damaging winds gusts locally and across the central and southern Plains.

Intense rainfall associated with these thunderstorms will lead to a threat of flooding. A heat wave will spread from Texas into the Desert Southwest and California Thursday with record-breaking warm temperatures forecasted through the weekend.
