Clarksville, TN – In 2017, the Austin Peay State University (APSU) student Shawn Harding discovered his family had fled Eastern Europe following a violent persecution of that region’s Jewish residents.
In 1905, a nice Catholic family from the Ukraine/Poland border immigrated to the U.S. with very few belongings and one big secret – they weren’t Catholic. More than 110 years later, the family’s great-grandchildren finally learned the truth.

Clarksville, TN – Smartphone photos are fine for most tourists, but when Austin Peay State University (APSU) student Amir Elraheb first experienced the splendor of Madrid, Spain, he pulled out his watercolors to truly capture the city.

Clarksville, TN – As you know, there are SO many great things about being a biker.
Since I began this journey, I’ve tried to share as many experiences as I could along the way. I feel as though many of you who have been longtime bikers would appreciate the perspective of a “new” rider and it would take you back to your beginnings. But better than that, if offers me the opportunity to learn from you. Your experience is invaluable to me and others here.
Selfishly though, I share these stories for me. I needed this journey to wash over me and cleanse me of my past. To leave it where it belongs. Sort of like a good hot shower, but with PIPES!

Pasadena, CA – Scientists on NASA’s Juno mission have observed massive amounts of energy swirling over Jupiter’s polar regions that contribute to the giant planet’s powerful auroras – only not in ways the researchers expected.
Examining data collected by the ultraviolet spectrograph and energetic-particle detector instruments aboard the Jupiter-orbiting Juno spacecraft, a team led by Barry Mauk of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland, observed signatures of powerful electric potentials, aligned with Jupiter’s magnetic field, that accelerate electrons toward the Jovian atmosphere at energies up to 400,000 electron volts.
