Need some soothing sounds to put your Monday blues in perspective? Grab your headphones and check out this hot new MP3 track from NASA, currently the number one hit across the universe:
That’s the sound of the Earth “singing,” as recorded by the awesomely-named Storm Probe mission — a couple of satellites investigating the famous Van Allen belts, intense radiation zones that surround our planet like a doughnut. The Storm Probes, launched last month, are mapping the density of charged particles.
The whale song is an audio rendering of radio waves captured by the Probes and caused by the two Van Allen belts, inner and outer. You don’t actually hear the audio in space, of course, but the radio waves — known as “chorus” — are for real.
A new app transforms smartphones into high-tech instruments for measuring lung capacity.
A new app transforms smartphones into high-tech instruments for measuring lung capacity. SpiroSmart uses the phone’s microphone to listen for subtle abnormalities in an exhalation, creating data that’s good enough for doctors to monitor patients’ conditions without requiring an office visit.
The software’s creators hope to make life a little easier for people with respiratory conditions that may benefit from more frequent lung measurements, including those with chronic asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
His blood could boil. His lungs could overinflate. The vessels in his brain could burst. His eyes could hemorrhage. And, yes, he could break his neck while jumping from a mind-boggling altitude of 23 miles.

I love social media. I think it is a fantastic way to interact and learn. However, I am seeing a pattern that is disturbing and unhealthy.When children are growing up, the most important part of school is social interaction, learning to get along with others and appreciating differences in others. I have two children, one already an adult, and I can tell you that the social learning is not always easy, but it is critical.
Unfortunately, I do not see the lessons taught in schools carrying through to adult interactions in social media. There is no appreciation or even understanding of differences, and this is not only wrong, but an unhealthy problem that we all need to work together to stop.
