Dodging the Roadkill: A Visit To Rabbit Hash Kentucky

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyRabbit Hash, KY – On a cool, clear morning, I straddled the Harley and took off from Madison, Indiana to visit the legendary Rabbit Hash Kentucky.  It’s a beautiful ride along the Ohio River Scenic Byway. 

Rabbit Hash is in Boone County Kentucky and is known, not only for it’s name, but for it’s string of canine mayors.  With an official population of just over 300, Rabbit Hash, KY was originally known as Carlton but had to change it’s name because their mail was being mixed up with Carrollton KY, another community along the river.

Circulation Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Whether or not you have high blood pressure, your risk of dementia may be higher if your pressure varies a lot from day to day, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

“Home monitoring of blood pressure may be useful to assess the future risk of dementia,” said lead study author Tomoyuki Ohara, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of neuropsychiatry at the Graduate School of Medical Sciences at Kyushu University in Fukuoka City, Japan.

NASA along with European Space Agency observe how Solar Storms move through Space

 

Written by Sarah Frazier
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Our Sun is active: Not only does it release a constant stream of material, called the solar wind, but it also lets out occasional bursts of faster-moving material, known as coronal mass ejections, or CMEs.

NASA researchers wish to improve our understanding of CMEs and how they move through space because they can interact with the magnetic field around Earth, affecting satellites, interfering with GPS signals, triggering auroras, and — in extreme cases — straining power grids.

While we track CMEs with a number of instruments, the sheer size of the solar system means that our observations are limited, and usually taken from a distance.

ESA and NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory observed a coronal mass ejection erupting from the Sun on Oct. 14, 2014. Scientists went on to track this coronal mass ejection through the solar system using 10 NASA and ESA spacecraft. (The bright light appearing at roughly 2 o'clock is the planet Mercury.)

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsMemphis, TN – The Nashville Sounds put together a late rally but it was not enough as they fell to the Memphis Redbirds 3-2 Wednesday night at AutoZone Park. The one-run game was the sixth of its kind in the season series between the two ball clubs.

Memphis starter Jack Flaherty put together a dominant performance on the mound while the Sounds had to piece together a ball game with its bullpen.

Norman Smith Elementary School Lunchbox Donation

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – It’s always nice to see how people caring and working together can make things happen. Carol Wallace, lunchroom monitor at Norman Smith Elementary School, noticed that some children were bringing food and drinks for lunch in plastic bags, which would taste better if they were chilled or cooled.

So, on her own initiative, she set out to get lunchboxes for some of the children that needed them.
