Nashville Honky Tonks

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN -The Round Rock Dance Halls took advantage of an eighth inning error and topped the Nashville Honky Tonks, 3-2, in front of a sellout crowd of 11,071 at First Tennessee Park Friday night.

With two outs and the game even at 2-2 in the top of the eighth, Dance Halls first baseman Tommy Joseph hit a bouncer to Nashville shortstop Jorge Mateo who let go of an errant throw to allow Joseph second base. The miscue came back to hurt when Andy Ibanez followed with a go-ahead, run-scoring single to give Round Rock a 3-2 lead.

Dodging the Roadkill: Diligence

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I ride with a lot of bikers who are WAY more experienced than me. There’s a reason we refer to them as “experienced.”  They’ve put the miles and miles in to make sure that their riding experience is safe and that their machine is in top working condition.

Things that are second nature to them, are not quite as routine with me… yet.

I don’t consider myself an “experienced” biker.  I’m into my third year as a Harley owner and I’m still learning.  Each time I ride with someone I learn something new.

Today was a situation that made me realize that I need to be better.  I need to be more diligent in looking out for my safety. I learned that I might take too many things for granted, and I might have been to “lazy” about some things.

NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover takes images of Haze from Martian Dust Storm

 

Written by Lonnie Shekhtman
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – A storm of tiny dust particles has engulfed much of Mars over the last two weeks and prompted NASA’s Opportunity rover to suspend science operations.

But across the planet, NASA’s Curiosity rover, which has been studying Martian soil at Gale Crater, is expected to remain largely unaffected by the dust. While Opportunity is powered by sunlight, which is blotted out by dust at its current location, Curiosity has a nuclear-powered battery that runs day and night.
