The United States and ten governments from around the Pacific are meeting yet again to hash out the secret Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) on May 15-24 in Lima, Peru. The TPP is one of the worst global threats to the Internet since ACTA.

NASA going the Crowd-Funding model? Not a bad idea, really. I suppose in a perfect world, we’d only pay “taxes” towards those programs we find most relevant to ourselves.

I could stare at this for hours….
These images were taken by Curiosity yesterday afternoon on sol 59, and just hit the NASA raw image page about 10 minutes ago.
Now that’s my kind of “vroom vroom!”
STOP BLAMING THE DOG START BLAMING THE OWNER!
Some of my favorite dogs are pits.
I fucking love pits. My mom doesn’t understand it though. She grew up in a not nice part of Brooklyn, so poorly trained attack dogs are the only type of pitbulls she knows.
I adore pits. There are about 10 in my neighborhood and it makes my day whenever I get to run into them on my afternoon walks.
I have two pit mixes, and they are the best dogs I’ve ever had in my life.

Curiosity says goodbye to ’Jake Matijevic’
The drive by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity during the mission’s 43rd Martian sol, ended with this rock about 8 feet in front of the rover. The rock is about 10 inches tall and 16 inches wide.
The top image shows the robotic arm of NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity with the first rock touched by an instrument on the arm. The rover’s right Navigation Camera took this image during the 46th Martian sol of the mission. On that sol, the rover placed the Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer instrument onto the rock to assess what chemical elements were present in the rock.
The rock has been named “Jake Matijevic.” This commemorates Jacob Matijevic (1947-2012), who was the surface operations systems chief engineer for the Mars Science Laboratory Project and the project’s Curiosity rover. He was also a leading engineer for all of the previous NASA Mars rovers: Sojourner, Spirit and Opportunity.
