What better way to learn about landforms than to see them up close and personal through a VR tour??? Second grade did an AMAZING job observing landforms in America’s National Parks, including Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. They recorded their observations, located where they were on a map, and made great connections. So, what better way to celebrate than by surprising them with their favorite continent & country...don’t ask me why, but Australia has these kids’ hearts 😂 (see last video for reaction) #landforms#geographylesson#2ndgrade#virtualreality#googleexpeditions#technology#science#STEM
Today on 26th of April 1933, Sir Owen Willans Richardson was born. He was a British physicist who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1928 for his work on thermionic emission, which led to Richardson's law.
Thermionic emission is the thermally induced flow of charge carriers from a surface or over a potential-energy barrier. This occurs because the thermal energy given to the carrier overcomes the work function of the material.

Dust, stars, and cosmic rays swirling the rugged surface of the 2.5 mile-wide (4 kilometers) Comet 67P!
This real series of images was captured 317 million miles (510 million km) from Earth by ESA's @RosettaMission, processed by twitter.com/landru79

#’Mood “People talking shit but when the shit hit the fan.. everything I’m not made me writhing I am” First off I take #Pride in being a #KanyeWest fan since #2004 He’s a #philosopher#Artist#innovator#MotivationalSpeaker I mean do I need to hashtag more??? That man is Wise beyond centuries and just like any #Science discovery you guys don’t really get it until decades later. Closed minded people can’t challenge themselves enough to accept someone who shares different political views or opinion then oneself. How boring! That’s like paying to see a cheetah race a turtle, predictable easy win,zero challenge results into NO competition nor excitement . Why are the #masses so bias to anyone that doesn’t think the way #society told you was right. Do y’all want to die followers or do you want to lead your own #mass I identify myself as a leader, as a 28 year old Black woman there isn’t a thought negative or positive that can deter my natural decisions and way of life. I am well aware of my gift or #freewill and having the ability to have a whole brain to myself . People challenge your mind #GetOutside the #Box you live in. Have you noticed the whole world is the #sunkenplace and to #GetOut you have to first get your mind outside the box and what they paint as normal/average. Social Media makes its to easy to #judge and feel your judgement is in anyway valuable and factual all because you get confidence from a verified account. At the rate modern time going we will eventually stop evolving as a human race because we focus so much on hating what we don’t understand instead of standing for what self believes in. (Notice I said self, you don’t get to determine anyone else beliefs.. just YOURS) We know everyone hates #Trump okay pray for him and keep moving. Just don’t become him which some of you describes as a close minded bias man and every other insult. Be the different you complain about,Or just die an ordinary follower. I guess if you keep this on a positive note to someone you would have made a difference but don’t oppose different because of your lack of understanding. #kanyewest#YeezyjumpedoverJumpman#Facts lol #Different#FakeNews#Pablo
Happy National DNA day! I celebrated by synthesizing some DNA.
Did you know your immune system can differentiate between your own DNA and bacterial/viral DNA? 🔎
Even though all DNA is composed of the same four bases (A,T,C,G), reversible modifications are used to control gene expression without altering the sequence. Methylation is often used to turn genes “off” and acetylation is often used to turn genes “on.” Non-mammalian DNA has significantly more unmethylated cytosine-guanosine motifs (CpG), so your immune system has been programmed to recognize CpG as an invader. 🕵️♂️ .
In the lab, we can synthesize small segments of CpG and use them as therapeutics to combat cancer or vaccinate against a variety of diseases. 🏥

A pika gathers grasses in Grand Teton National Park in preparation for winter. As soon as the snow melts and the vegetation begins to grow these industrious lagomorphs will spend nearly all summer collecting and storing plants that they will eat throughout winter
#Hertoo Oh HELL No! The third and final blog post I wrote recently about the sexism that woman face everyday, with greater detail and more quotes than when first published. I encourage you to read both articles written by @morgan_reid , and @science.sam. Also look for @natashabertrand on MSNBC, or NBC, you can also find her writing here - https://www.theatlantic.com/author/natasha-bertrand/
Within the violet wisps of the Najola star cluster, Qolar and its crimson moon lay barren and empty. The cratered blue planet was once home to developing life, but much of it was eradicated when a massive asteroid impacted with the planets surface.

Consider the piano. A key strikes a corresponding string to produce a sound. If the piano is out of alignment, the key does not hit the string, and the intended sound is not produced.
Similarly, when our hearts and actions are not aligned, our lives are not the way we’d like them to be. Sync up with yourself to realign ▫️
▪️How to spot a good influence: Imagine you took over their life exactly as they are living it — how good does their outlook feel? How fulfilling are their relationships? Would you be happy living their life? If the answer is yes, then they are likely a positive influence on you 😚▫️
