At The Sound Kitchen, co-workers can bond during a day of composing and performing original songs in a professional recording studio.

“It’s important to note, our corporate team building exercises don’t require the participants to have any musical experience to participate,” said Ira Blonder, a managing general partner at The Sound Kitchen. «Read the rest of this article»

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity to drill rock in ditch on Mars named Yellowknife Bay

 

Written Guy Webster
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – The NASA Mars rover Curiosity this week is driving within a shallow depression called “Yellowknife Bay,” providing information to help researchers choose a rock to drill.

Using Curiosity’s percussive drill to collect a sample from the interior of a rock, a feat never before attempted on Mars, is the mission’s priority for early 2013. After the powdered-rock sample is sieved and portioned by a sample-processing mechanism on the rover’s arm, it will be analyzed by instruments inside Curiosity.

Martian Rock “Jake Matijevic” analysed by NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover reveals Surprises

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – The first Martian rock NASA’s Curiosity rover has reached out to touch presents a more varied composition than expected from previous missions. The rock also resembles some unusual rocks from Earth’s interior.

The rover team used two instruments on Curiosity to study the chemical makeup of the football-size rock called “Jake Matijevic” (matt-EE-oh-vick) The results support some surprising recent measurements and provide an example of why identifying rocks’ composition is such a major emphasis of the mission. Rock compositions tell stories about unseen environments and planetary processes.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s rover Curiosity touched a Martian rock with its robotic arm for the first time on September 22nd, assessing what chemical elements are in the rock called “Jake Matijevic.”

After a short drive the preceding day to get within arm’s reach of the football-size rock, Curiosity put its Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer (APXS) instrument in contact with the rock during the rover’s 46th Martian day, or sol.

Jazz on the Lawn with Richard Waters and the Blues Boyz

 

Clarksville, TN – Whenever Beachaven Vineyard and Winery holds one of their Jazz on the Lawn concerts you know you will have a good time. That was the case with Saturday’s Concert Featuring Richard Waters and the Blues Boyz.

It was much cooler than it had been at recent concerts, however some may have been discouraged from attending by the overcast skies which threatened rain, those who did attend had a really great time as they listened to a mixture of  Blues, Funk, and Rock from the Nashville based band.

NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft finds Evidence of Subsurface Ocean of Water on Saturn’s Moon Titan

 

Written by Jia-Rui Cook
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft have revealed Saturn’s moon Titan likely harbors a layer of liquid water under its ice shell.

Researchers saw a large amount of squeezing and stretching as the moon orbited Saturn. They deduced that if Titan were composed entirely of stiff rock, the gravitational attraction of Saturn would cause bulges, or solid “tides,” on the moon only 3 feet (1 meter) in height. Spacecraft data show Saturn creates solid tides approximately 30 feet (10 meters) in height, which suggests Titan is not made entirely of solid rocky material. The finding appears in today’s edition of the journal Science.

The Rock

 

A Devotional By Brother Shep

The other day as I was looking through one of my concordances I came across the list of names of Jesus.  Some of them were counselor, Rose of Sharon, Morning Star but one caught my attention particularly and that is He is called the Rock. 

One day I was riding my four wheeler on the back side of my Sister and Brother-in-laws farm and there is a small creek there, and I like to go there and work on my sermon.   On that particular day I was sitting in the middle of the creek on my four wheeler and I noticed a small school of fish.  «Read the rest of this article»
