Talk about messing with the fourth wall :) If you missed this on the Emmy's, which I did, finding it instead at AdAge, then watch & enjoy!!



From Netflix: 'Netflix is a joke. There, we said it. Brand new stand-up specials from Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, and Jerry Seinfeld are coming soon. Only on Netflix'.

Mastering any physical skill takes practice. Practice is the repetition of an action with the goal of improvement, and it helps us perform with more ease, speed, and confidence. But what does practice actually do to make us better at things? Annie Bosler and Don Greene explain how practice affects the inner workings of our brains.



I've taken much of this little vid's advice to heart so, I hope you enjoy and can learn from it too!!

I think, as these periodically come along, I'll post them here because they really are speedy yet full of information about ISS!
NASA.jpg From: YouTube NASA Johnson_The International Space Station is a one-of-a-kind spot for scientists who want to do experiments where there’s no gravity, to find out how other natural forces function without gravity’s influence. In this “SpeedyTime” segment, Expedition 52 flight engineer Jack Fischer uses a few simple tools to demonstrate what happens to water in space when there’s no pull of gravity.

NASA.jpg From: YouTube NASA Johnson_Doing groundbreaking science can mean working with dangerous materials; how do the astronauts on the International Space Station protect themselves and their ship in those cases? They use the Microgravity Science Glovebox: in this “SpeedyTime” segment Expedition 52 flight engineer Peggy Whitson pulls a rack out of the wall of the Destiny Laboratory to show us how astronauts access a sealed environment for science and technology experiments that involve potentially hazardous
materials.

NASA.jpg From: YouTube NASA Johnson_When you live in a place where your heart doesn’t even have to work against the pull of gravity, you need help with exercise: the astronauts on the International Space Station have a suite of exercise equipment at their disposal, including a treadmill. In this “SpeedyTime” segment Expedition 52 flight engineer Jack Fischer runs through the workout they get on the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill (COLBERT) in the station’s Tranquility module.

This is a short, 6 minute-esque, documentary wherein Carrey talks, sort of rivetingly, about what and why he paints while demonstrating the how. I hadn't seen his work prior to this article in artNetNews and I always worry how I will respond to work done by those who have been very successful in other arenas. In Carrey's case, I like very much what he's doing. Styalisticly, he's all over the place which is so cool because it means he's exploring, learning, having fun and isn't that what all this should be about anyway? That and hopefully having something to say.

The new posters pay homage to the 1930s originals.

America’s national parks have been enthralling visitors for over a century. The very first park to be established was Yellowstone, which was described by Ferdinand Hayden in his 1871 survey as a ”land of wondrous beauty.” There are now 58 national parks around the U.S., covering an astonishingly diverse 84 million acres of land. It’s not hard to understand why some ambitious tourists make the effort to visit every single one of them.


Want to see more lovely lovely posters. Go here.

SpeedyTime #1, about  Kibo Airlock, can be found here.

From
: YouTube NASA Johnson_Astronauts on the International Space Station have to exercise for two hours every day, but they can show off the hardware in a lot less time than that. In this “SpeedyTime” segment Expedition 52 flight engineer Peggy Whitson gives us a rapid-fire display of exercises that can be done with just one piece of equipment, the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device in the Tranquility module.

Whether coffee, like me!, or tea, sort of like me, soda, not like me, or chocolate, like me!, we all probably take-in a little caffine from time to time. This makes me feel a bit better about doing just that :)

     -enjoy!

From: YouTube Ted-Ed_Over 100,000 metric tons of caffeine are consumed around the world every year. That’s equivalent to the weight of 14 Eiffel Towers! Caffeine helps us feel alert, focused, and energetic, even if we haven’t had enough sleep — but it can also raise our blood pressure and make us feel anxious. So how does it keep us awake? Hanan Qasim shares the science behind the world’s most widely used drug.

     From YouTube: NASA Johnson
No one knows the International Space Station better than the people who live and work there—and now they’re sharing that knowledge in bite-sized chunks. In the first of a series of short videos called “SpeedyTime,” Expedition 52 flight engineer Jack Fischer gives us a quick-but-thorough tour of payload activities inside and outside the airlock in the station’s Japanese laboratory module, Kibo.

It's stunning to me how, even after all this time, those two little words still bring tears to my eyes. This vid, which I snagged from secretsolitaire, is a lovely tribute made for the 2th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book. It's 'The 20 most memorable moments from the Harry Potter series -as chosen by fams'.

...that make me glad, despite everything that's going on, that I'm alive at this exact time.

With music by Hanz Zimmer, who I adore, and with the words of Dylan Thomas's Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night perfectly spoken by Anthony Hopkins, I think this three and one half minute tribute to 46 years of space movies is brilliant.

Oh, also, I sent this vid to Lauren and this is what she had to say
"Well, that was beautiful. Made me want go explore space!"
I couldn't agree more :)



Should you watch, I hope you enjoy.

I'm probably going to be doing more science-y posts this year like this five minute vid from TED-Ed because they are able to explain so much so concisely and so understandably.
