Marsha Blackburn states Freedom Reveals Itself in the Lives, Actions of Every American

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) spoke on the Senate floor about protecting our country’s freedom for Independence Day.

Remarks as Prepared.

Thank you, Mister President.

In 1826, a very old and feeble John Adams received a group of Quincy, Massachusetts town leaders who were seeking his help in planning an anniversary celebration of the Declaration of Independence. They wanted Adams to pen a toast to be read at the event. Imagine their surprise when Adams left them with just two words:

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Dodging the Roadkill: After The Flood, The Rivers Edge Resort

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyEminence, MO – The first year of this journey I’m on, I was like a kid with the new bike he got for Christmas.  I wanted to go EVERYWHERE!

Not knowing much about where to ride, I would just google places of interest and during the summer of 2016, I came across a website, Motorcycle the Ozarks.  The pictures were beautiful, and I couldn’t resist the names of some of the roads to ride. 

How could I NOT go ride the Jesse James Getaway, or the Ozark Hellbender? What was even better was that the destination was only about four hours away and that was something I was looking for.

NASA’s Hubble, Spitzer Space Telescopes identify Planet’s Atmosphere

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – For the first time, two NASA space telescopes have worked together to identify the detailed chemical “fingerprint” of a planet between the sizes of Earth and Neptune. No planets like this can be found in our own solar system, but they are common around other stars.

The planet, Gliese 3470 b (also known as GJ 3470 b), may be a cross between Earth and Neptune, with a large rocky core buried under a deep, crushing hydrogen-and-helium atmosphere. Weighing in at 12.6 Earth masses, the planet is more massive than Earth but less massive than Neptune (which is more than 17 Earth masses).

This artist's illustration shows the theoretical internal structure of the exoplanet GJ 3470 b. It is unlike any planet found in the Solar System. Weighing in at 12.6 Earth masses the planet is more massive than Earth but less massive than Neptune. (NASA, ESA, and L. Hustak (STScI))
