"Actually, I love this. Reality checks are good for the ego, and thus good for your soul. LOL. As a 'want to be' writer, I often wonder what it will take to actually be successful in this arena, and the fantasy can have you, well..trippin.…"
"This is really a global problem for POC. People have been so mis-informed regarding POC, that not even POC want to 'read' about themselves. The Sony hack was very revealing in terms of this topic. Is there really a solution?
"Define 'Black Speculative' fiction for me. How does this differ from 'mainstream' speculative fiction? I'm asking because in many cases 'Black' is simply people of color doing the exact same things that mainstream…"
"Nice response to a tragic story. It's almost like a tragic lesson of sorts. We who haven't made it to such a level of 'stardom', often find ourselves struggling with jealousy and envy as we imagine how great, sexy,…"

A group of researchers recently observed a mysterious infrared emission coming from near a pulsar in NASA's Hubble Space telescope data. This animation depicts one possible source of the emission: a "fallback disk" or a disk that formed from materials of the parent star falling back into the neutron star after a supernova.

During the heady days of the Black Cultural revolution in Chicago, there was a lot of art dealing with this hope and concept. The mainstream galleries, Black art curators, historians and critics mostly stayed away from it. Then once certain major players in this died in came the White parasites. One a college professor the other a Jewish art dealer. Both swooped in making deals to sell works, with the other building a entire career path for herself. Now they are the accepted go-to authorities of this movement. That they treat as a dead slave on their plantations. "The Black Art Movement" now produces no revenue or power for the people it were supposed to benefit.
And all of this happened due to the "Black on Black boycott" that allowed non-Blacks to walk in a take it to the bank. WHen Black do not support and endorse its own positives others come in later to reap its resources, power & wealth.

A new uncertainty principle holds that quantum objects can be at two temperatures at once, which is similar to the famous Schrödinger's cat thought experiment, in which a cat in a box with a radioactive element can be both alive and dead. Credit: Shutterstock
When the researchers turn an external magnetic field in different directions (indicated with arrows), they change the orientation of the linear electron flow above the kagome (six-fold) magnet, as seen in these electron wave interference patterns on the surface of a topological quantum kagome magnet. Each pattern is created by a particular direction of the external magnetic field applied on the sample.

Republicans: Founded in 1854 by anti-slavery expansion activists and modernizers, the Republican Party quickly surpassed the Whig Party as the principal opposition to the Democratic Party. In 1860, it came to power with the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency. The party presided over the American Civil War and Reconstruction and was harried by internal factions and scandals toward the end of the 19th century. Today, the party supports a conservative platform (from an American political perspective), with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies,…
At 2:30 a.m. EDT (0630 UTC) on Sept. 11, the MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite looked at Hurricane Florence in infrared light. MODIS found coldest cloud top temperatures around the eye, as cold as or colder than minus 80 degrees (yellow) Fahrenheit (minus 112 degrees Celsius). Surrounding the eye were thick rings of powerful storms with cloud tops as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees (red) Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). Credit: NASA/NRL…

Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
