Prove It Clarksville: Day Nine: Look Out, Cow

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Today was the hottest day yet.

I got to my spot (in front of the Walmart on Fort Campbell Boulevard) a few minutes after 10:00, and the temperature was already “up there.”

People had a lot of questions about what I was doing, but as I handed them my flyer that explains how to “Prove It,” I got a lot of good responses (although I also noticed that lots of folks in that part of town were super-generous even when they didn’t have a clue what I was doing).

Several people dropped off money, and a couple of young boys even donated some of their piggy bank money. And thank goodness, everyone kept bring me plenty of liquids!

The Tuesday Cafe team says, “Prove it!” (By the way, stay tuned for details about how you can stand on the corner with me next Monday.)

Tennessee Department of Health says Parents need to discuss Sexually Transmitted Diseases with their Children

 

Tennessee Department of Health - TDOHNashville, TN – Sex. It’s a difficult topic for many parents to discuss with their children, but those conversations may save a life or prevent pain and suffering from a sexually transmitted disease.

“There are more than 20 sexually transmitted diseases and while all are preventable, not all are curable,” said Carolyn Wester, MD, MPH, medical director of the TDH HIV/STD Section. “Some are deadly, some can cause permanent damage to the reproductive and nervous systems, and some can cause bouts of pain for the rest of a person’s life. Unfortunately too many children become sexually active at very young ages, so it’s important for parents to provide accurate information earlier than later, and to help their children understand the consequences of their actions.” «Read the rest of this article»

NASA looks back at the July 2012 Solar Superstorm that just missed Earth

 

Written by Tony Phillips
Science at NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – If an asteroid big enough to knock modern civilization back to the 18th century appeared out of deep space and buzzed the Earth-Moon system, the near-miss would be instant worldwide headline news.

Two years ago, Earth experienced a close shave just as perilous, but most newspapers didn’t mention it. The “impactor” was an extreme solar storm, the most powerful in as much as 150+ years.

“If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces,” says Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado.
