Here's a pretty cool image from a link at Astronomy Picture of the Day that shows Pluto and Ultima Thule next to each other in real sizes and with the current guess as to real color. Thule is the tiny dot off to the right.

Here's the current Astronomy Picture Of The day with some good and fun links in the text.

The moon guy closed by saying that discovery of even a tiny moon, at whatever distance, would probably be enough to provide a mass for Ultima Thuli, even if it is not the original moon or moons that the Scientists believe probably contributed to the slow down of the 2 objects orbital rotation rate after they joined together. He says that by the end of January they should have the data between the 100 - 500 mile distance from UT they need to search that missing gap.

Kev, I don't necessarily SUBSCRIBE to the notion, that this woman's son is concerned with HER, so much as his life doesn't need HER distractions or to be troubled by HER lifestyle.
As I said to JANE....it's a TAP IN. The lady has the right to live as she see's fit. She does not , require her son, daughter, sons, daughters, nor sons and daughters permission to LIVE, because she is not YOUNG.
I witnessed my own Mother's demise, in fact, I found her on the floor of her bedroom.....dead.
She drank and drank and drank, and was EXTREMELY SUCCESSFUL and brilliant. She made and destroyed numerous relationships because of DRINK. Her choice. She was functional, and had a long long history of drinking and yet getting along in the world to some sort of "self satisfaction". I do no believe that, ANYONE, should have the right to literally CONTROL someone else, because the SOMEONE ELSE makes poor choices vis a vis their own life.
Only YOU know your own BEST INTERESTS.

So Romney and ChiFi will now be a festering boil together on the SFRC. POTUS can lance them for shits and giggles whenever he likes. "Advise me and then let me (LANCING WITH PURPOSE AND FOLLOWTHROUGH) do WTFIW.. That's the consent part."

GUS

Capn, it's easy to find a prick like Romney disgusting, once you recognize, you've been fooled or that you once TRUSTED the PRICK to be a decent man. The FULL COMMIE and MFM, used to tell us, that "no one can say that BI-SEXUAL TURKEY BASTER BARRY isn't a VERY GOOD FAMILY MAN and FATHER".
Yes, we can say that he's a scum bag.
Remember when Harry 'Ol ONE EYE" Reid, attacked ROMNEY saying that "he'd been told" that ROMNEY hadn't paid any TAXES in 10 years.

We defended ROMNEY as GOOD vs Harry Reid being EVIL.

How has Romney thanked us?????

"Kev, I don't necessarily SUBSCRIBE to the notion, that this woman's son is concerned with HER, so much as his life doesn't need HER distractions or to be troubled by HER lifestyle."

i don't subscribe to the notion that "worry" = "Caring". my point was that he is "beset with worry" (which is useless). And what he should do is offer to help her to get her affairs in order for HER BENEFIT.

and then he should just focus on having the best relationship with her that she's willing to have with him. end of story.

"worry" got us all "Global Warming"--- the epitome of doing things with murky intentions "because I'm worried that...."

Feinstein is filth. Her Chinese connection and her employee, who went ALL GONE. Her releasing of Senate documents, as regards GLENN SIMPSON/GPS FUSION and blaming a BAD COLD are utter HORSE SHIT.

My take on the border wall/shutdown thing is that Trump could declare a national emergency and use military funding, or push a remittance tax to "get the Mexicans to pay for it", or use any number of accounting tricks to fund getting the wall built (I suspect that he is doing exactly that already) if he felt the need. He doesn't. He deliberately provoked the government shutdown standoff in that oval office meeting with Chuck and Nancy.

He wants the political theater. The Dems have taken their stand and boxed themselves in. And now they have to keep digging that hole.

Trump knows that border security--the wall--is a big winner in the polls that matter (why do you think the Dems keep playing lip service to the words if not the actual concept?), that even the slowest amongst us get that $5 billion is sofa cushion money, and that only a not particularly large portion of the voting population is upset by the horrendous government shutdown (which is now about 3 weeks old and the sky has obviously not fallen).

The guy is fighting the good fight and keeps setting the agenda.

Boatbuilder, we all know that DJT has a YOOOOOOGE ego. HE is also a patriot and a successful smart man.
I do not think that DJT is looking for THEATER, rather, if his AIMS, lend themselves to suckering his opponents into bad PR, that's how he'll win.
DJT needs help. The CLOCK has been ticking for a full 2 years now. Many victories and accomplishments, MOST, NOT ACKNOWLEDGED at all by the MFM and never will be.

Re the widget, definitely enjoyed the very complex design process. It was roughly the 3rd gen over 30 yrs with lots of new science helping nudge it in new directions. The biggest problem in trying to sell it in a trade show environment is the price point is low enough that you really need someone else to peddle it along side a lot of other stuff. I managed that at the Berlin show in September, but the froggies who took it on kinda choked when it was all said and done. :(

MM noted something about vocational schools on the rise and somebody else referenced a failing vocational school.

I looked at both articles, the failing vocational chain emphasized a two year residential program. That can't be cheap.

MM's article emphasized that states are directing more money to vocational schools. Those are high school and community college level programs.

What used to be Bergen County Tech High School is now Bergen County Academies. A school that used to accept almost anybody is now a highly selective magnet school

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergen_County_Academies

Two other campuses focus on more traditional curriculum.

I think most here would be amazed to read the definitions of alcoholic, as far as quantity of alcohol and regularity of consumption, as it's not at all hard to meet those above definitions according to those party-pooper's standards.

Lots of people do "dry January" and I know the Lenten "sacrifice" of not drinking (during the week/at all/except for special social occasions, whatever) serves the same purpose---just making sure what has become a regular (?daily?) habit hasn't crossed a line.

It's weird. You can be Macho Ma'am Tranny Savage and identify as a woman even if you are not but if you identify as a cop they actually check that out.

jim nj

Gentlejim,

I find that surprising, but your point about how police have been pilloried as a profession recently strikes me as true.

I had thought that the path to wanting to be a policeman was somewhat organic, based on early life experience. The desire to help people in need, not so much as a social worker, where time isn't so much of an issue, but in an immediate sense.

I've known very good cops and very bad cops. The bad cops are caught and removed.

Personally, I think we're asking LEO officers to enforce too many new stupid rules.

We're criminalizing things that don't deserve enforcement.

LEO body-cams do seem to be reversing the narrative though. I'd recommend them for everyone. We hear of gross police misconduct and then they play the recordings and there is no misconduct (in most cases) and the so-called "victim" is shown as a raving lunatic.

And it's not just victims who aren't victims, but believe that you are politically incorrect.

It's the proliferation of criminalizing behaviors that weren't criminal before.

People tend to resent enforcement of minor infractions that aren't universally enforced.

Pinandpuller

I know you sometimes mention BI-BARRY and Colin Caperdick so when I heard this story I thought about you. A Ghanan girl got adopted by white British people, more or less. They were of course, TYPICAL WHITE PEOPLE. It wasn't enough for her. They don't have Greek school for Black People, did you know that? I think you know what I'm saying.

When she gave birth to me, she was 22 and unmarried. So she made the decision to leave me in the care of a white "nanny". It wasn't particularly uncommon for Nigerian parents of the 70s and 80s to leave their children in the care of white nannies in the UK while they returned to live in Nigeria. It indicated a certain status. It would convey an image that the child would be living in England, being looked after by a white nanny and learning the Queen's English. But the reality was far less glamorous.

jim nj---agree with the high functioning part using their shocking definitions! How impaired are you if you can still type?? ;-)

BUT I've never researched to see what --if any--science backs those standards up. Liver enzyme changes? Accidents?
And if they are based on retrospective, self-reported studies (and what else COULD they look at?) that stuff is the worst kind of "evidence" that there is.

BUT---I think it's not hard to see how easily one can slip in to habitual imbibing of what is pleasurable, but definitely consciouness altering as well as addictive substances. Not to mention the neurotoxicity of ETOH.
Especially on vacations/ in retirement/ non workdays.

I've noted for my own use some things reported here--one person never drinks before a certain time of day, set number of drinks; another only drinks IIRC when out of town on work assignments.

Dry January here. Just because.

And yes,docs pretty much go with the assumption of underreporting, but I am not a primary care person. And I don't know if in the age of legal weed, people don't feel like they need to underreport substance use as much as back in the day, so that may no longer be the case.

I do agree with the MYOB to the concerned kid who wants to move his competent but soused momma back to his supervision. If she's not drinking and driving or burning dinner, seems to me she's not hurting anybody else.

I saw KK's take. matt---???

jim nj

Gentlejim,

I'd like to see more effort in repealing old laws too rather than passing new ones. Police should deal with crime and rescue, rather than social moderation.

The old analogy suits me - there are wolves, sheep and guard dogs. Trying to increase the number of wolves with innocuous crimes like smoking in a public park with no one around is stupid. But if they're smoking pot, they're OK...

Anonomom,

I saw that exchange on the "alcholic" mom. I forget what GUS called it, but it inferred an ulterior motive.

That struck me, is the son concerned that his mother is an "alcoholic" even though it sounds like she's a high functional alcoholic, or is he concerned about her assets that he would like to convert to his own benefit?

Definition of an alcoholic - If there is another beer in the fridge I have to drink it. Me, yes I drink a lot of beer at night, but I can leave the rest of my supply alone when I go to bed.

High-functioning? I look at my late night posts in the morning and I'm still coherent, I think.

I'm home. I don't drive. I don't operate heavy machinery. I just think. And with my senses dulled, I think my thinking is less inhibited. I make connections that I wouldn't realize if I was stark sober.

Anonamom,

Nice point. I never drink during the daylight hours.

Early on I did and decided I needed to stop doing that. I skipped supper after drinking in the afternoon, then drank at night.

A week or later I stopped drinking during daylight hours. It wasn't healthy skipping dinner.

I think the difference between a social drinker or a heavy drinker, as opposed to an alcoholic, is that they can set rules for themselves, and usually stick to them. The alcoholic has no restrictive rules. If it's there he/she will drink it or run to the store for more.

When The New Yorker praises your now-defunct magazine, I would say that the magazine lost its core readership.

Why these people cannot see that the average GOP voter is sick of their snobbery and shenanigans, I don't know.

This is an essay which explains that the government is obligated to defend the border by the Guarantee Clause of the Constitution.

PIN,

I'm 65 now. My mother and farther both died at 65 in 1984, a few months apart. I haven't found an expiration date stamped on my foot, so I figure I'm good for a few more years.

There are certainly worse things to use in our society these days.

I saw any article today that posited that the urban disease had become a rural disease. Hopelessness and drugs are now common to the two communities.

Hard to argue against. The hollowing out of urban communities and the loss of manufacturing in rural communities.

MM,

Agreed, when The New Yorker needs to defend the Weekly Standard, neither gains credit-ability.

Ouch.

Somehow Willard forgot appointments like Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, appointments to the Supreme Court that will affect the course of this nation and our democracy for generations, not just until the next election.

Romney forgets that the first duty of a statesman is to get elected.

Running your campaign like you are running for class president is a losing strategy for presidential politics.

Running one like you are in a bar fight for the future of this nation as Trump did is a winner.

I want Trump on my side in a bar fight.

If I need to figure out which fork to use at dinner, I’ll ask Mitt Romney."

Et Tu, Mitt
