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. Felix Doubront made a spot start for Zach Neal and lasted three innings before being replaced by fellow southpaw, Patrick Schuster. Corey Walter finished out the ball game, tossing the final 2 2/3 innings.

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.

Dodging the Roadkill: Madison Indiana

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyMadison, IN – I recently took a weekend trip to ride a few of Kentucky’s motorcycle routes.  The routes I chose, began in Madison, Indiana, so that’s where I set up camp.

Madison Indiana is the county seat of Jefferson County Indiana.  This beautiful city sits along the Ohio River.  It’s population is just over 12,000 people.  Madison is one of the core cities of the Louisville-Elizabethtown-Madison Metroplex, which estimates a population of 1.5 million, according to Wikipedia.  In 2006, the majority of Madison’s downtown was designated the largest contiguous National Historic Landmark in the United States.

It’s historic downtown district is amazing.

NASA looks at studying Venus using CubeSats

 

Written by Lori Keesey
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Venus looks bland and featureless in visible light, but change the filter to ultraviolet, and Earth’s twin suddenly looks like a different planet. Dark and light areas stripe the sphere, indicating that something is absorbing ultraviolet wavelengths in the planet’s cloud tops.

A team of scientists and engineers working at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, has received funding from the agency’s Planetary Science Deep Space SmallSat Studies, or PSDS3, program to advance a CubeSat mission concept revealing the nature of this mysterious absorber situated within the planet’s uppermost cloud layer.

As seen in the ultraviolet, Venus is striped by light and dark areas indicating that an unknown absorber is operating in the planet’s top cloud layer. The image was taken by NASA’s Pioneer-Venus Orbiter in 1979. (NASA)
