Some quick Tabletop Roleplayng tips for newbies

With the popularity podcasts like TAZ or Critical Role have gained I’ve been seeing many people start getting into tabletop roleplaying which is so nice and fills me with hope since I’ve gotten used to be the youngest in groups at 23. 

So here’s some tips for people who are interested in getting into tabletop roleplaying: 

  • Your first session is not going to be what you expect. Unless you and your peers have a theatre kids background, you’re probably going to be shy and it’s going to be awkward. It’s normal. You’re not an actor or a professional entertainer. You’re having fun sharing a story with your friends, not recording a podcast for a living. 
  • Long campaigns are good but it’s usually difficult for adults to commit to one and it’s sad when they get abandoned. Give one-shots and short campaigns a chance! They are honestly really fun for a night with friends and don’t usually require hours of building a character.
  • Speaking of characters, my recommendation is to start with a character whose personality and beliefs resemble yours. Choosing to play a charming and outspoken character who loves public speeches can put a lot of pressure on you if you’re shy. 
  • If you go to a LARP do a bit of research on who is organizing and who is attending, if you don’t know them make sure it’s in a public place. If there’s softcombat let the GMs know if you’re allergic to latex and if you have any lesion they should be aware of. 
  • D&D and high fantasy are not the end-al be-all of tabletop roleplaying (in all honesty I find it kinda boring?), give other universes/systems/lore a chance, you might find something that suits your interests more than D&D. 
  • Don’t stress over rules. Also, a good GM should not make you stress over rules. 
  • Villain campaigns might sound cool, but I wouldn’t recommend them if this is your first campaign. ESPECIALLY if you don’t know the people you are playing with. 
  • A good GM should not make fun of your triggers and will work around them . 
  • Trust your gut. You are here to have fun, if you are feeling uncomfortable it’s time to get up and leave.

In 2007, a media flurry ensued when Pennsylvania hunter Rick Jacobs released a recent photo of what some enthusiasts claim to be a Sasquatch. Jacobs obtained the photo by affixing a camera with an automatic trigger to a tree in the Allegheny National Forest. When he saw the photo, Jacobs contacted the Bigfoot Research Organization, which is dedicated to pursuing information about the legendary Bigfoot or Sasquatch. The first photo, taken at 20:04, shows two bear cubs; while the 2nd photo is a mysterious creature that appears 28 minutes later. The major thought on what this creature could be - other than a Bigfoot which is what people think it is - is a bear with mange. 

Five Eclipses in NASA History

On Monday, August 21, 2017, people in North America will have the chance to see an eclipse of the Sun. Anyone within the path of totality may see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse. 

Along this path, the Moon will completely cover the Sun, revealing the Sun’s tenuous atmosphere, the corona. The path of totality will stretch from Salem, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse, where the Moon covers part of the Sun’s disk. Remember: you can never look at the Sun directly, and an eclipse is no exception – be sure to use a solar filter or indirect viewing method to watch partial phases of the eclipse.

Total solar eclipses are a rare chance to study the Sun and Earth in unique ways. During the total eclipse, scientists can observe the faintest regions of the Sun, as well as study the Sun’s effects on Earth’s upper atmosphere. We’ve been using eclipses to learn more about our solar system for more than 50 years. Let’s take a look back at five notable eclipses of the past five decades.

May 30, 1965

A total eclipse crossed the Pacific Ocean on May 30, 1965, starting near the northern tip of New Zealand and ending in Peru. Totality – when the Moon blocks all of the Sun’s face – lasted for 5 minutes and 15 seconds at peak, making this the 3rd-longest solar eclipse totality in the 20th century. Mexico and parts of the Southwestern United States saw a partial solar eclipse, meaning the Moon only blocked part of the Sun. We sent scientists to the path of totality, stationing researchers on South Pacific islands to study the response of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere to the eclipse. 

Additionally, our high-flying jets, scientific balloons, and sounding rockets – suborbital research rockets that fly and collect data for only a few minutes – recorded data in different parts of the atmosphere. A Convair 990 research jet chased the Moon’s shadow as it crossed Earth’s surface, extending totality up to more than nine minutes, and giving scientists aboard more time to collect data. A NASA-funded team of researchers will use the same tactic with two jets to extend totality to more than 7 minutes on Aug. 21, 2017, up from the 2 minutes and 40 seconds observable on the ground. 

March 7, 1970

The total solar eclipse of March 7, 1970, was visible in North America and the northwestern part of South America, with totality stretching to 3 minutes and 28 seconds at maximum. This was the first time a total eclipse in the United States passed over a permanent rocket launch facility – NASA’s Wallops Station (now Wallops Flight Facility) on the coast of Virginia. This eclipse offered scientists from NASA, four universities and seven other research organizations a unique way to conduct meteorology, ionospheric and solar physics experiments using 32 sounding rockets

Also during this eclipse, the Space Electric Propulsion Test, or SERT, mission temporarily shut down because of the lack of sunlight. The experimental spacecraft was unable to restart for two days.

July 10, 1972

Two years later, North America saw another total solar eclipse. This time, totality lasted 2 minutes and 36 seconds at the longest. A pair of scientists from Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, traveled to the Canadian tundra to study the eclipse – specifically, a phenomenon called shadow bands. These are among the most ephemeral phenomena that observers see during the few minutes before and after a total solar eclipse. They appear as a multitude of faint rapidly moving bands that can be seen against a white background, such as a large piece of paper on the ground. 

While the details of what causes the bands are not completely understood, the simplest explanation is that they arise from atmospheric turbulence. When light rays pass through eddies in the atmosphere, they are refracted, creating shadow bands.

February 26, 1979

The last total solar eclipse of the 20th century in the contiguous United States was in early 1979. Totality lasted for a maximum of 2 minutes 49 seconds, and the total eclipse was visible on a narrow path stretching from the Pacific Northwest to Greenland. Agencies from Canada and the United States – including NASA – joined forces to build a sounding rocket program to study the atmosphere and ionosphere during the eclipse by observing particles on the edge of space as the Sun’s radiation was suddenly blocked.

July 31, 1981

The USSR got a great view of the Moon passing in front of the Sun in the summer of 1981, with totality lasting just over 2 minutes at maximum. Our scientists partnered with Hawaiian and British researchers to study the Sun’s atmosphere – specifically, a relatively thin region called the chromosphere, which is sandwiched between the Sun’s visible surface and the corona – using an infrared telescope aboard the Kuiper Airborne Observatory. The chromosphere appears as the red rim of the solar disk during a total solar eclipse, whereas the corona has no discernible color to the naked eye.

Watch an Eclipse: August 21, 2017 

On August 21, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States from coast to coast for the first time in 99 years, and you can watch.

If skies are clear, people in North America will be able to see a partial or total solar eclipse. Find out what the eclipse will look like in your area, then make sure you have a safe method to watch – like solar viewing glasses or a pinhole projector – and head outside. 

You can also tune into nasa.gov/eclipselive throughout the day on Aug. 21 to see the eclipse like you’ve never seen it before – including a NASA TV show, views from our spacecraft, aircraft, and more than 50 high-altitude balloons.

anonymous asked:

I hope this isn't rude, but I'm following a LOT of witch blogs. you being one of them. yet, when I look at the witch-related asks & answers for all of those blogs, other blogs are helpful and list spells and such. you just "no" whenever someone asks? Can I ask why you reject magic for a lot of your situations, considering you run a magic blog and are quite literally a creator of a magical how-to book?

simply because magic is not needed in every situation, nor is it advisable. recognizing when magic is and isn’t needed, or even a good idea is important in the life of the witch. 

here are a couple of examples of such:

things i have answered “no” to today:

  • bewitching your significant other (consent issues anyone?)
  • bewitching a non-signif to find out personal things (consent again)
  • asked for a spell for communicating with spirits (just because a skill isn’t developed doesn’t mean a spell will replace experience)
  • weight loss spells (dangerous and against my personal morals)

however, the one outlier i include is this, because it’s important:

  • easily google-able question (as stated in previous posts, i encourage people to develop their own research skills so they can grow in their craft when they reach an area of their path where there isn’t someone around to hold their hand and slip them the answers)

Japanese scientists have genetically engineered a chrysanthemum flower that is “true blue” — a color that has long eluded flower breeders and researchers.

Blue has proved a challenge to produce in many other popular flowers, including roses, carnations and lilies.

It hasn’t happened until now in chrysanthemums due to the “recalcitrant and unpredictable expression of introduced genes,” Naonobu Noda from Japan’s National Agriculture and Food Research Organization tells The Two-Way. Noda is the lead author of the paper released today in Science Advances.

When scientists tried previously to introduce genes to create a blue color, Noda said, the flower would “shut them off by as yet unknown mechanisms.” Other attempts produced violet flowers, not blue ones.

Five Ways the International Space Station’s National Lab Enables Commercial Research

A growing number of commercial partners use the International Space Station National Lab. With that growth, we will see more discoveries in fundamental and applied research that could improve life on the ground.

Space Station astronaut Kate Rubins was the first person to sequence DNA in microgravity.

Since 2011, when we engaged the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) to manage the International Space Station (ISS) National Lab, CASIS has partnered with academic researchers, other government organizations, startups and major commercial companies to take advantage of the unique microgravity lab. Today, more than 50 percent of CASIS’ experiments on the station represent commercial research.

Here’s a look at five ways the ISS National Lab is enabling new opportunities for commercial research in space.

1. Supporting Commercial Life Sciences Research

One of the main areas of focus for us in the early origins of the space station program was life sciences, and it is still a major priority today. Studying the effects of microgravity on astronauts provides insight into human physiology, and how it evolves or erodes in space. CASIS took this knowledge and began robust outreach to the pharmaceutical community, which could now take advantage of the microgravity environment on the ISS National Lab to develop and enhance therapies for patients on Earth. Companies such as Merck, Eli Lilly & Company, and Novartis have sent several experiments to the station, including investigations aimed at studying diseases such as osteoporosis, and examining ways to enhance drug tablets for increased potency to help patients on Earth. These companies are trailblazers for many other life science companies that are looking at how the ISS National Lab can advance their research efforts.

2. Enabling Commercial Investigations in Material and Physical Sciences

Over the past few years, CASIS and the ISS National Lab also have seen a major push toward material and physical sciences research by companies interested in enhancing their products for consumers. Examples range from Proctor and Gamble’s investigation aimed at increasing the longevity of daily household products, to Milliken’s flame-retardant textile investigation to improve protective clothing for individuals in harm’s way, and companies looking to enhance materials for household appliances. Additionally, CASIS has been working with a variety of companies to improve remote sensing capabilities in order to better monitor our oceans, predict harmful algal blooms, and ultimately, to better understand our planet from a vantage point roughly 250 miles above Earth.

3. Supporting Startup Companies Interested in Microgravity Research 

CASIS has funded a variety of investigations with small startup companies (in particular through seed funding and grant funding from partnerships and funded solicitations) to leverage the ISS National Lab for both research and test-validation model experiments. CASIS and The Boeing Company recently partnered with MassChallenge, the largest startup accelerator in the world, to fund three startup companies to conduct microgravity research.

4. Enabling Validation of Low-Earth Orbit Business Models 

The ISS National Lab helps validate low-Earth orbit business models. Companies such as NanoRacks, Space Tango, Made In Space, Techshot, and Controlled Dynamics either have been funded by CASIS or have sent instruments to the ISS National Lab that the research community can use, and that open new channels for inquiry. This has allowed the companies that operate these facilities to validate their business models, while also building for the future beyond station.

5. Demonstrating the Commercial Value of Space-based Research

We have been a key partner in working with CASIS to demonstrate to American businesses the value of conducting research in space. Through outreach events such as our Destination Station, where representatives from the International Space Station Program Science Office and CASIS select cities with several major companies and meet with the companies to discuss how they could benefit from space-based research. Over the past few years, this outreach has proven to be a terrific example of building awareness on the benefits of microgravity research.

Lately I have been reading a lot of articles for my master thesis project. I don’t know about you, but after a week of literature review I am not able to remember what each of the articles were about or if they had any relevant piece of information. That’s why I developed my “keep track of what you read” system. 

STEP 1 - organize your folders

Create a subfolder inside your project folder and give it a catchy name. I call mine “articles”, nice, huh? Then create a subfolder inside that folder and call it “to_read”. Now, every time you get a new article, you will put it into the “to_read” folder.

STEP 2 - give your PDFs a nice name

The default file name when you download an article is something ugly like “1-s2.0-S0140674607612379-main.pdf”. Change this for something that will allow you identify the article easily. I try to stick to the system “first_author (year)”.

STEP 3 - use the cloud

I have all my stuff stored in Dropbox or Google Drive. It’s the best if you are going to work from more than one device as it will keep your stuff synced and always accesible.

STEP 4 - create a reading log

My master thesis project is about auditory verbal hallucinations, language, and dynamic causal modelling, so I have to read articles about these three topics. To keep track of what I’m reading, I created an excel document in Google Drive with 3 different spread sheets, one for each of the topics. Now, every time I start reading an article, I open this document, I go to the spread sheet that fits, and I write down its title. 

STEP 5 - read the article and take notes

I am a color coder, so I highlight the articles as I read them. Something interesting? Yellow. Hypotheses? Green. Relevant results? Blue. Then I take some notes of the important stuff, either in my research notebook or in a Word document, depends on my mood. Once you are done reading, move the article from the “to_read” subfolder to the main “articles” folder. At this step, you could also consider to use a reference manager like Mendeley or EndNote, but that’s a topic for another time.

STEP 6 - update the reading log

Now write in your log a couple of sentences (or more!) about the article you just read, just to jog your memory in the future. You can also copy some quotes you think will be usefull in the future or references to other articles cited in the text that you might want to check later. It’s up to you.

STEP 7 - hyperlink

If you have everything stored in the cloud, you can add hyperlinks from your reading log to the articles and/or to the notes you took on them. If you took notes on a paper notebook, write down which notebook it is and the page number where you can find those notes (numbering the pages of your notebook is a must!).

Now, remember that everybody works differently and this is only the system I use, but I strongly recommend keeping a reading log. I might seem like an overkill when you only have to read a couple of articles for class, but you’ll be gratefull for it when you have to use something you know you have read about… and you can’t remember where you read it.

// Might be late to this bandwagon, but I absolutely love this application. Have been using it for 5 months and it’s helped me stay organized + productive (two favorite words, mmm). It can be useful in so many ways for almost anyone, but I specifically use it as a “lab encyclopedia”.

Why I Use It:

After reading so many articles about very specific methods / results, I realized I couldn’t remember them all and I needed to summarize - but I wanted a depot for all the summaries so it would be useful for me. I also wanted to keep track of the theory behind some of the research I do, like why certain proteins aren’t present in rat liver naturally, or how to take care of certain cell lines I use.

How I Keep It:

Within the notebook “Lab Encyclopedia” (I’ve got other notebooks that I use with my supervisor and we share experimental plans and debriefing of meetings on it), I’ve got 10 tabs/chapters

  1. Project (list of experiments do to for all the projects I’m working on)
  2. Pathology (theory behind the disease(s) I’m focused on)
  3. Organs (theory on how disease affects the organ, what we already know)
  4. Organelles (articles on the disease + particular organelles play a role)
  5. Proteins (known proteins involved in particular disease/metabolism)
  6. Methods (theory behind experimental methods (not actual procedure))
  7. Cell Lines (information on all the cell lines I work on)
  8. Pathways (protein signalling pathways in articles that seem intriguing)
  9. Possible Antibodies (narrowed-down list of proteins to look at, and where to find them in stores + reason they’re interesting)
  10. UB (R code for programming for bioinformatic analysis for a project)

*Within these tabs, I’ve got specific pages for each section. For example, under “General Pathology”, there are 3 pages: “Fatty Liver Disease”, “Obesity”, “Insulin Resistance”.

How I Use It:

I started the encyclopedia off by taking a review article that combined info from a lot of good articles, and jotted down the main ideas. Whenever I got to terms that I wanted to remember, like “nonalcoholic fatty liver disease” versus “nonaslcoholic steatohepatitis”, I wrote them down and found simple definitions for them and highlighted the word (like a dictionary). When I want to talk about a good article and their results, I put them all under a heading like “fatty liver disease and insulin resistance”, include the link (displaying the name and authors instead of the link), and then a nice little summary.

Some of these pages I share with my supervisor (like the antibodies page), but I actually have a separate notebook that I share completely with him that includes all meeting details so that we’re on the same page when I leave a meeting with him.

On my phone, I use the OneNote app, and it comes with a list feature. I included a list of all the experiments I need to do for each of the projects I work on (my thesis + collaboration projects) - down to the specific trial number so that I can get some satisfaction after spending 3 days on a trial.

I’m sorry this was a long description for something that not many people are going to use it for, but I thought if I described it, someone might be inspired to use it in a different and personalized way as well!

India sets new world record, launching 104 satellites at once.

Creating a new world record in the process, India successfully kicked off their 217 launch calendar February 14 by launching a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle with 104 satellites. The rocket launched at 10:58pm EST from the Satish Dhawan Space Center.

Lofted into a sun-synchronous orbit by the rocket’s fourth stage, 101 cubesats accompanied three larger satellites on the mission. CartoSat-2D is the fourth in a series of high-resolution Earth-imaging satellites domestically designed by India. Less than ten seconds after CartoSat-2D was deployed, the INA-1A and 1B satellites were released. These two satellites are technology demonstrators for a new, smaller satellite bus that India hopes can attract universities and small businesses for space-based payloads.

Of the 101 cubesats deployed, 88 belonged to the Planet company, which - when combined with 100 identical satellites already in polar orbit- will photograph the entire surface of the Earth every day. Eight other cubesats belonged to Spire Global, and will measure atmospheric conditions and global shipping traffic. The remaining five are scientific and communication technology demonstrators

ISRO - the Indian Space Research organization - released a stunning video of the PSLV launch, the first time footage from onboard rocket cameras have been released. Key events in the rocket’s ascent can be seen, including the jettisoning of its six strap-on solid rocket motors, separation of its second and third stages, and jettisoning of the payload fairing.

I don't understand, Trump supporters are telling us all that we're overreacting

But he’s literally put a gag order on fucking NASA. He’s suspended RESEARCH. ON OUR FUCKING ENVIRONMENT.

Even if you don’t believe in climate change, do you really want to shut down an organization researching environmental problems???

And he’s arresting journalists for doing their fucking job.

Silencing people who dared claim his inauguration ceremony was smaller in attendance than Obama’s.

Is he editing all photos to make them look like his was larger?

Has he begun that yet?

You told us we were overreacting when he was in the primaries.

You told us we were overreacting when he was running against Hillary.

And you tell us we’re overreacting now, as he begins to purge any opinion, scientific or not, that goes against his own fucking beliefs.

I don’t care if he doesn’t believe in it, he has no fucking right to quash scientific study that “defies” his own beliefs.

His job as a politician is to trust the system HE’S IN CHARGE OF and not discredit and attack them, a la the CIA.

Science organizations actually felt the need to go fucking underground.

Alternative facts are being spread.

People are telling us that lies are “the truth” if told by the right person.

This is happening.

If you still think we’re overreacting at this point, I get the feeling that you won’t fight, won’t care about your rights, even if Donald trump personally comes to your house to install your first telescreen, so forgive me if I take your whining with a grain of salt.

So go ahead and pretend Trump is just going to improve this country by removing immigrants and any failsafes we have against tyranny.

You won’t be remembered by history.

And we won’t have a history, soon, if trump continues to blatantly erase any history he disagrees with.

These pictures of a Bigfoot were taken on Silver Star Mountain in Vancouver, Washington. They were snapped on November 17th, 2005. A backpacker that was climbing the mountain took the images and claims he does not think that they are another backpacker nor a hiker. The witness was interviewed by the BFRO (Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization) and seems credible. According to the BFRO, the images do not appear to be hoaxed.
