Hubble celebrates 20 years in space with a jaw-dropper Bad Astronomy … – StumbleUpon

Hubble celebrates 20 years in space with a jaw-dropper Bad Astronomy … – StumbleUpon. Some beautiful examples of Deep Space photography. It makes things that we make look so simple-minded by comparison. Ok I was inspired with a poem.

The heat is still expanding from the birth of the universe,
Time and space wrapped together uncursed.
While other dimensions weave in and out of our space,
Yet our life continues-the humble human race.

Cuts through the desert like an earth wielding knife.
To the tops of the trees and the animals below,
We love you water more than you know.

Book Review: Naturally Selected: The Evolutionary Science of Leadership 9780061963834: Mark Van Vugt, Anjana Ahuja: Books

 

Amazon.com: Naturally Selected: The Evolutionary Science of Leadership 9780061963834: Mark Van Vugt, Anjana Ahuja: Books. Skip this book. It is so boring and wordy. They restate the same things over and over. It is the longest 219 pages you have ever read in your life. It doesn’t say anything groundbreaking and reads like a college text in the worst way.

History repeats itself. Does life imitate art?

More importantly is that we always need to imagine something before we do it.  Everything that I have accomplished in my life I have imagined it first.  The reality of life has always been better than my imagination.  So I am learning to imagine bigger things, and seeing what happens.  Don’t dream big, imagine big.
