Minkowski aka supervisor in charge of this disaster. he’s taking her job a little bit too seriously for a part time job in between studying, attending the musical theatre group and probably going to the gym three times a week.
she doesn’t sleep enough and it shows when interacting with both staff and customers
in the never-ending power struggle with Lovelace, who came back to supervising after being abroad for a year. constant “it’s not how you do it, we’ve never done it this way” “well it’s how we do it now”
they both need to chill out
Eiffel tries to calm them down only to get screamed on half of the time. he gives up, eventually, and let them do their thing
He seems to be the only one who’s actually chatty and all happy, so he’s usually somewhere at the front talking to customers.
Hera is the best barista ever she can operates few machines at the same time and nobody really knows how she does it but they’re proud
Eiffel and his mini radio-auditions for university radio and so on. always fights with Minkowski about picking music for the cafe because “commander (he actually does call her that) we cannot have hamilton playing on repeat third day in a row”
(He knows guns and ships by heart)
nobody really knows why is Hilbert here or who hired him. Minkowski tried to fire him but it’s beyond her power so he just laughed in her face
also a good barista but has a tendency of putting weird stuff into coffee. Eiffel refuses to take any cup so much as near Hilbert at any point
he once lost a screwdriver. asked about it, he preceded to give Minkowski a whole lecture about a newly-discovered plant that eats metal
Minkowski bought a venus flytrap plant the next day
Maxwell is this one kid who comes in in the morning and sits there almost till they close. Nobody ever tossed her out because she seems to be the only customer ever Hera actually enjoys talking to
sometimes she’s joined by this one guy who’s known on campus for making a bomb.
VLA GIVES NEW INSIGHT INTO GALAXY CLUSTER’S SPECTACULAR “MINI-HALO”
Astronomers using the National Science Foundation’s Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) have discovered new details that are helping them decipher the mystery of how giant radio-emitting structures are formed at the center of a cluster of galaxies.
The scientists studied a cluster of thousands of galaxies more than 250 million light-years from Earth, named the Perseus Cluster after the constellation in which it appears. Embedded within the center, the Perseus Cluster hosts a pool of superfast particles that emit radio waves, creating a radio structure known as a “mini-halo.” Mini-haloes have been found in about 30 galaxy clusters, but the halo in the Perseus Cluster is the largest known, about 1.3 million light-years in diameter, or 10 times the size of our Milky Way Galaxy.
The sizes of the mini-haloes have presented a puzzle to astronomers. As the particles travel away from the cluster’s center, they should slow down and stop emitting radio waves long before they reach the distances observed, according to theory.
“At large distances from the central galaxy, we don’t expect to be able to see these haloes,” said Marie-Lou Gendron-Marsolais, of the University of Montreal. “However, we do see them and we want to know why,” she added.
The astronomers took advantage of the upgraded capabilities of the VLA to make new images of the Perseus Cluster that were both more sensitive to fainter radio emissions and provided higher resolution than previous radio observations.
“The new VLA images provided an unprecedented view of the mini-halo by revealing a multitude of new structures within it,” said Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo, also of the University of Montreal. “These structures tell us that the origin of the radio emission is not as simple as we thought,” she said.
The new details indicate that the halo’s radio emission is caused by complex mechanisms that vary throughout the cluster. As theorized before, some radio emission is caused by particles being reaccelerated when small groups of galaxies collide with the cluster and give the particles a gravitational shove. In addition, however, the scientists now think that the radio emission is also caused by the powerful jets of particles generated by the supermassive black hole at the core of the central galaxy that give an extra “kick” of energy to the particles.
“This would help explain the rich variety of complex structures that we see,” Gendron-Marsolais said.
“The high-quality images that the upgraded VLA can produce will be key to helping us gain new insights into these mini-haloes in our quest to understand their origin,” Hlavacek-Larrondo said. The VLA, built during the 1970s, was equipped with all-new electronics to bring it up to the technological state of the art by a decade-long project completed in 2012.

Here’s a ‘filler’ clip for the month while I continue to work on the longer episodes that never seem to end. This clip comes from the first episode of Star Raji-Ocean Anamnesis season, making it overall episode 42 of the whole Star Raji-Ocean series. If anyone’s interested, the whole series goes like this:
Star Raji-Ocean #1-26 - hosted by Ishikawa Kaito & Nakamura Yuuichi
Star Raji-Ocean #27-41 - hosted by Nakamura Yuuichi + different guests
Star Raji-Ocean #42-present (Anamnesis season) - hosted by Nakamura Yuuichi & Mafia Kajita
If anyone still doesn’t know who Mafia Kajita is, this post explains it all…
For the ‘Twitter incident’, I posted it here. I can’t find the original Twitter screenshots anymore…
*yandere*: Not sure if this is already a well-known word or not but for the sake of people who don’t know, it’s a word combination of ‘yamu’ (=to be sick/ill) and ‘dere’ (=to be affectionate; also the same ‘dere’ from tsundere) Put them together, it basically describes someone whose affections for another is strong to the point of being psychotic. It has since become a ‘moe’ characteristic though I personally can never understand why lol
Soooooo i’m gonna die on the 2nd of June because of Strip That Down music video but then i’ll die again on the 9th of June because of the song with Zedd! But that’s not all… I’m gonna die again with his radio mini-tour! Seems legit Leyum
Pretty crappy name but this is one of many upcoming Monster World WWE Halloween themed one shots for @jazziethuqqins-blog. This is based in the world of Vamp Shield, Wolf Enzo and so on. Your ring name will still be Blaire Wilde like in the vamp shield series and you’ll be human but the smut with the shield has NOT occurred here. No vamp smut in general is linked to this.
This first fic is finding out your besties Becky and Sasha are…hmm…Not spoiling it yet cause this is gonna be one fun ride so I just got two words for ya…
“Y/n!” you giggled as Bayley practically jumped into your arms and you spun her around for a hug.
“You always give the best hugs!” your voice was muffled in her shoulder and Bayley laughed as you set her down.
“Well…it’s a gift.” she grinned. “And speaking of gifts I know it’s someone’s birthday todayyy~!” Bayleyy sang with another grin as you were suddenly tackled from behind and you almost panicked but when a flash of pink hair fluttered by, you gave a happy squeal.
