It’s hard to describe how paramount light is. Ultimately, it is the only thing we see. But just as important the presence of light is, so is its absence. To talk about light we have to start in darkness so let’s jump straight into it.

“The basic [journalistic] principle should be, treat the police like any other source, with the same degree of skepticism as you treat any other source. 'Police said’ is not a shorthand for truth”

Yup, this does what I want, for the most part. Redirection is a problem, because it doesn't shell out, it really just executes the first argument you give it as a problem. But 'bash -c "some long command line"' works, as does '-s "pipe | line"' for pipelines. Also, this is badass: $ ls *.css *.html | entr reload-browser Firefox

Has your world ever turned upside-down? It would happen every day if you stay fixed to the stars. Most time-lapse videos of the night sky show the stars and sky moving above a steady Earth. Here, however, the camera has been forced to rotate so that the stars remain fixed, and the Earth rotates around them. The movie, with each hour is compressed to a second, dramatically demonstrates the daily rotation of the Earth, called diurnal motion. The video begins by showing an open field in Namibia, Africa, on a clear day, last year. Shadows shift as the Earth turns, the shadow of the Earth rises into the sky, the Belt of Venus momentarily appears, and then day turns into night. The majestic band of our Milky Way Galaxy stretches across the night sky, while sunlight-reflecting, Earth-orbiting satellites zoom by. In the night sky, you can even spot the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. The video shows a sky visible from Earth's Southern Hemisphere, but a similar video could be made for every middle latitude on our blue planet. via NASA
