New Close-Up Image of Jupiter's South Pole is Mind-Blowingly Beautiful

NASA’s Juno spacecraft has once again delivered stunning images of Jupiter, this time giving us a glimpse at the gas giant’s south pole. The image, taken from Juno’s most recent flyby on February 2nd, was captured at an altitude 63,400 miles. While there aren’t any Jovian penguins on this south pole (that we know of), we can clearly see magnificent, swirling white clouds.
Since Juno arrived on July 4th 2016, citizen scientists and other enthusiasts have been geeking out over the orbiter’s raw images, which are always available on the Juno Cam site. The public is encouraged to download, enhance, and submit their new images to NASA. The stunning photo featured above, enhanced by citizen scientist Roman Tkachenko, was taken from this raw image:




Florida Man just another believer in Republican Jesus

A unemployed Lakeland man faces a five-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $250,000 after making a $7 billion fraudulent wire transfer because Jesus Christ chose him to be wealthy, according to court documents.

John Haskew's excuse earned him several eye rolls from law enforcement authorities in Lakeland, Florida, who arrested him in early December.

"Haskew stated that Jesus Christ created wealth for everyone. Using this scheme, Haskew believed that he could obtain the wealth that Jesus Christ created for him and that belonged to him," according to court documents.


NC appeals court temporarily reinstates new elections law

Source: AP/CBS

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina appeals court has temporarily reinstated a state law that stripped the governor of his oversight of elections.

The law was approved by Republican lawmakers two weeks before Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper took office. It was blocked by a three-judge panel after Cooper sued.

The state Court of Appeals’ decision Thursday means the law can be enforced while the court decides whether to take up a request by Republican legislative leaders to overturn the lower court’s decision.

The measure merges the state ethics and elections boards into one and gives legislative leaders half of the board appointments going forward. Previously the governor made the elections board appointments with a majority coming from his party.

For music's 'medical refugees,' Obamacare is a lifeline worth protecting

by August Brown

Last April, doctors told David Ponder, a 57-year-old gospel musician living near San Diego, that his heart was going to fail. He had already had quadruple bypass surgery; without a full transplant he and his music would likely die within months.

Three months later, with the help of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences’ MusiCares charity, he had a new heart. With it came a renewed faith in his music, his beliefs — and the necessity of the Affordable Care Act.

“I’d ask everybody who doesn’t believe in the ACA to put yourself in someone’s shoes who needed it to sustain their life,” said Ponder, who now plans to audition for the new season of “America’s Got Talent.”

Although his procedure was paid for by Medicare and Medi-Cal, Ponder has become one of many musicians lending their voice to MusiCares’ call to protect the ACA.
