It’s Wednesdog!

This Wednesdog is brought to you by Iggy.

We met him one day as he and his partner in crime were walking by us throwing the ball with Talulah.

Iggy just got his summer haircut. His owner said he’s a mix between a husky and a chihuahua. He seemed very educated about dogs, dog breeds and evolution.

It’s like being in the south without the knowledge of evolution and dog breeds.

As we were talking, Iggy took a liking to Tina, who welcomed his leans for pets. His owner explained that Iggy likes to fetch, but only once. Then he moves on to something else.

I said, “Sometimes I wonder if Talulah will get bored of fetching. Like one day she’s going to look at me and say, ‘I’m done with this game, pops’.”

The owner said, “She wouldn’t do that. That’s abstract thought.”

I rolled my eyes and chucked the ball for Talulah to run after.

Happy Wednesdog.

North Carolina you’re famous! You made it to Al Jazeera!

The rural US town of Maiden in North Carolina has become the latest flashpoint in an often bitter national debate about gay rights.

Arguments from either side intensified after President Barack Obama earlier this month declared his support for gay marriage.

In rural America’s so called, “Bible Belt”, many pastors have been rhetorical and at times hateful in their condemnation.

A recent sermon posted online by a pastor, in which he outlines a plan to imprison homosexuals behind an electric fence and keep them there until they die, has gone viral.

Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from Maiden.


I looked everywhere on my camera and couldn’t find the 171 wavelength channel

Here is a NASA video of the Venus Transit. From NASA:

The Venus transit as seen in the 171 wavelength. This channel is especially good at showing coronal loops – the arcs extending off of the Sun where plasma moves along magnetic field lines. The brightest spots seen here are locations where the magnetic field near the surface is exceptionally strong.
