Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In the immediate wake of a devastating tornado, lives have been lost and homes destroyed, but the damage done to a cherished family business has created more strife for two siblings than high-speed winds could ever hope to cause.

“One of the siblings was focused on being out half a million dollars in damages, while the other one was focused more on the sentimental aspect of having their family business destroyed,” Dr. Kim Coggins, Austin Peay State University assistant professor of psychological sciences and counseling, said.

Dodging the Roadkill: Image

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – If you were to say “biker” to ten people, you would probably get ten different images of what a biker was.  Part of the mystique of a biker is the image that the culture has.  

Bad boy, dangerous, rough, are just a few of the ideas most people have.  Rightfully so, in some cases.  The image has been perpetuated by Hollywood, AND real life.

The Hell’s Angels and other notorious motorcycle gangs give most people an unfavorable idea about motorcycles and those who ride them.  The way some of us ride causes some people to resent us or dislike us.

NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes observe Exoplanet with Hot Stratosphere devoid of Water

 

Written by Elizabeth Zubritsky
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – A NASA-led team has found evidence that the oversized exoplanet WASP-18b is wrapped in a smothering stratosphere loaded with carbon monoxide and devoid of water. The findings come from a new analysis of observations made by the Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes.

The formation of a stratosphere layer in a planet’s atmosphere is attributed to “sunscreen”-like molecules, which absorb ultraviolet (UV) and visible radiation coming from the star and then release that energy as heat.

A NASA-led team of scientists determined that WASP-18b, a "hot Jupiter" located 325 light-years from Earth, has a stratosphere that's loaded with carbon monoxide, but has no signs of water. (NASA)
