Teen Pregnancy Continues Decline in Tennessee

 

Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Health reports that consistent with national trends, Tennessee’s teen pregnancy rates per 1,000 females declined from 49 in 2013 to 32.5 in 2016. The most recent national data available is from 2013, when the teen pregnancy rate in the U.S. was 43 per 1,000 females.

“We are moving in the right direction in Tennessee,” said TDH Assistant Commissioner for Family Health and Wellness Morgan McDonald, MD. “Though many factors may contribute to teen pregnancies, the positive work being done illustrates education and public health interventions make a difference. We have seen that when teens have access to information about preventing pregnancy, our teen pregnancy rates decrease.”

Nashville Honky Tonks drop Round Rock Dance Halls in extra innings, 3-2

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsRound Rock, TX – In his first game back from Oakland, Franklin Barreto collected a season-high four hits to help the Nashville Honky Tonks come from behind to defeat the Round Rock Dance Halls 3-2 in 10 innings.

With the threat of a suspended game due to a travel curfew looming and the game knotted at two runs apiece in the bottom of the ninth inning, Honky Tonks reliever Dean Kiekhefer made quick work of the Dance Halls to give Nashville one more chance to win the game. Anthony Garcia came up big for the Honky Tonks with a two-out RBI single in the 10th inning to score Nick Martini who began the frame at second base.

Whether it’s the transition from 4G to 5G, which will bring industries together to develop new technologies, or how self-driving cars factor into that equation, America must lead.

Dodging the Roadkill: Rain or Shine

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN -With the Memorial Day weekend behind us, I guess we can focus on summer and all that it brings with it.  Specifically, good weather.  The kind of weather that allows us plenty of “seat” time on our bikes.

Up to now, it’s been a crapshoot.  

Here in my neck of the woods, it seemed as though we went from winter straight to summer, without a hint of spring.  If you wanted to enjoy some time on your motorcycle, the best time of the day was in the morning, before the heat wave moved in.

NASA’s NEOWISE spacecraft uses thermal sensors to analyze hundreds of Asteroids

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Nearly all asteroids are so far away and so small that the astronomical community only knows them as moving points of light. The rare exceptions are asteroids that have been visited by spacecraft, a small number of large asteroids resolved by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope or large ground-based telescopes, or those that have come close enough for radar imaging.

When seen by optical telescopes, these individual sources of reflected sunlight can provide some very valuable but also very basic information — for example, the asteroid’s orbit, a ballpark estimate of its size, sometimes an approximation of its shape, and perhaps an idea of its physical makeup.

Analysis of asteroids like Lutetia was used in the Josef Hanuš-led paper on asteroid thermophysical modeling. Lutetia is a large main belt asteroid about 62 miles (100 kilometers) in diameter. Lutetia was visited by ESA's Rosetta spacecraft in 2010. (ESA 2010 MPS)
