U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Just this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported the largest outbreak of measles in the United States since 2000. The alarming increase in measles cases underscores the importance of vaccines and immunizations in our country.

The U.S. Senate recently passed my bipartisan Vaccines Save Lives resolution to send a clear and unequivocal message of Congressional support for vaccines and to urge parents, in consultation with their health care providers, to follow scientific evidence and the consensus of medical experts in favor of timely vaccinations for the well-being of their children and surrounding communities.

My Two Cents: A Nation Divided

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – This article is strictly my opinion and does NOT reflect the opinion of the staff, management or sponsors of Clarksville Online and it’s partners.

I’ve just finished watching President Trump’s speech from the oval office.  I watched it online and watched in horror the HATE that has consumed this country and is perpetuated by all of us in some form or fashion. 

I’m no expert and I’m not trying to change the world, I’m just trying to enjoy life, my family, my grandsons and my faith. I want ALL of us to do good, to be healthy, happy and fulfilled.

Dodging the Roadkill: To Each His Own

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I first started this journey, it was always going to be a Harley for me.  The last motorcycle I owned was a Suzuki 750.  I wanted to own a Harley and I wanted to get fully involved in the “biker culture” and a Harley was what I wanted.

I also want to own an Indian.  The more I research this company and their products, the more I want to own and ride one.  Since I started this journey late in life, I won’t have the years and years of riding that many of you have had to try different bikes, or ride different models, so I will do my best to get a taste of them all.

The point is, it doesn’t matter what you ride.  It doesn’t matter what brand you’re loyal to.  It matters THAT. YOU. RIDE!

NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer data shows bulge of Stars in Milky Way’s center form “X” Shape

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A new understanding of our galaxy’s structure began in an unlikely way: on Twitter. A research effort sparked by tweets led scientists to confirm that the Milky Way’s central bulge of stars forms an “X” shape. The newly published study uses data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission.

The unconventional collaboration started in May 2015 when Dustin Lang, an astronomer at the Dunlap Institute of the University of Toronto, posted galaxy maps to Twitter, using data from WISE’s two infrared surveys of the entire sky in 2010.
