    “On April 22, 2015, the Chilean volcano Calbuco erupted, providing the most dramatic and awe-inspiring photographs Iโ€™ve ever seen of such an event. On that day, photographer Martin Heck was right on the scene, by happenstance taking time-lapse footage on the neighboring Osorno volcano. When Calbuco went off, he hurriedly set up and shot video that is, no exaggeration, some of the best I have ever seen of any volcanic eruption ever. Seriously. Make this full screen and high-definition. Itโ€™ll blow your socks off….

    …..Even better, there were no reported deaths or injuries, despite the huge scale of the eruption. It lasted for well over an hour, and launched a plume 10 kilometers into the sky. Oh, that plume. The superheated ash and gas are buoyant, so they rise rapidly in a column from the volcanoโ€™s vent. The cloud cools as it rises and stops rising when it reaches an altitude where its density equals that of the surrounding air. However, the plume below is still pumping material into that spot, so the cooler material spreads out, forming the mushroom cloud shape. Once the eruption stops, the winds sweep the column to one side. On top of that, the eruption occurred near sunset, so the low Sun illuminated the cloud from the side, adding more drama. The Sun reddens as it sets, and the ash in the air scatters blue light away, making the cloud appear an unearthly red..continued”

    I have loved every aspect of Barack Obama from the moment he first stepped on the stage at the 2004 Democratic convention. But this, latest version of our President– with no cares about what people think– is my favorite. Just when you think you cannot love him more, he proves you wrong.

      yes yes yes! he is fantastic! i kind of feel sorry for the folks who became ‘disappointed’ after helping to elect him- because they have made fools of themselves.

    This guy and Doug Hilderband, and Joel Beneson don’t get enough credit for just how smart President Obama and his campaign team were in 2007/8

    “..Bermanโ€™s name may not ring bells even for fairly obsessive political junkies โ€” heโ€™s not an MSNBC regular, doesnโ€™t much talk to reporters, and has spent most of his professional life in private legal practice. But reporters who covered the hallucinatory December and January of Clintonโ€™s collapse will remember him, first, as a tense and reedy voice on a conference call the night of January 19, 2008. Clinton had just won Nevada, we thought, because she won about 500 more delegates through a caucus process that was more like a melee than a vote. I had filed my story and was walking to my gate at McCarran International Airport when Obamaโ€™s campaign manager, David Plouffe, convened a conference call on what seemed at first a technical, even absurd, premise: That by virtue of some obscure rule, Obama had actually won.

    โ€œObama had a majority in the district that had an odd number of delegates, so he won an extra seat,โ€ Berman explained to flummoxed reporters that night. โ€œWhere Clinton won, the delegates were split evenly.โ€ (The substance of this point is a nice illustration of how insane the mechanics of American elections are, and is roughly explained here. The politics of it are that Berman realized early that the only part of Nevada that actually mattered was the rural north, and so Obama organized like hell in Elko.) Itโ€™s hard to overstate how crucial Bermanโ€™s minute calculations, his frighteningly accurate predictive spreadsheet, and the traps he laid through the early states, were to Obamaโ€™s victory…”

    A FB friend posted today’s that he wrote an article for a newspaper after Roors aired years ago. The 3 subheadings were: We need change. Jesus changes people. Changed people change things. His point is all fit perfectly today.

    The woman who disrespected PBO at LGBT WH even is Jennicet Gutierrez. She’s an activist. Her twitter handle is @jennicetg.

      I’m putting money on the MSM to make her a star. Interviews and guest appearances. Maybe even a GoFund page.

      • June 25, 2015 at 7:06 am

        Do you think she would have disrespected Hillary or Bill like that? I’m glad she was escorted from the place. People have lost all manners now a days. She sounded like a man, was she a Transgender?

    Too cool:

    50 Girl Scouts Get Ultimate Campout Invite โ€” To White House
    WASHINGTON (AP) โ€” Fifty Girl Scouts will get to pitch tents at the ultimate campground next week โ€” on the south lawn of the White House.
    First lady Michelle Obama is hosting Tuesday nightโ€™s White House campout as part of her Letโ€™s Move Outside initiative.
    The fourth-graders will be able to earn Girlsโ€™ Choice Outdoor badges by doing rock climbing, tying knots, orienteering and pitching tents, among other activities.
    Later that night, astronaut Cady Coleman will lead them in a NASA stargazing activity.
