Equinox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Equinox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "equinox in astronomy is the event when the Sun can be observed to be directly above the Earth's equator, occurring around March 20 and September 23 each year. More technically, the equinox happens when the Sun is at one of two opposite points on the celestial sphere where the celestial equator and ecliptic intersect. In a wider sense, the equinoxes are the two days each year when the center of the Sun spends an equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on Earth. The word equinox derives from the Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night).

In practice, the day is longer than the night. Commonly the day is defined as the period that sunlight reaches the ground in the absence of local obstacles. The Sun is a disc and not a single point of light, so when the center of the Sun is below the horizon, the upper edge is visible. Furthermore, the atmosphere refracts light, so even when the upper limb of the Sun is below the horizon, its rays reach over the horizon to the ground. In sunrise/sunset tables, the assumed semidiameter is 16 minutes of arc (minutes refering to parts of a degree, not minutes of daylight) and the assumed refraction is 34 minutes of arc. On average, their combination means that when the upper limb of Sun is on the visible horizon its center is 50 minutes of arc below the geometric horizon, whi"

White Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

White Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "There are many theories about the origins of White Day, but according to one, the holiday began in 1965, when a marshmallow maker started marketing to men that they should pay back the women who gave them chocolate and other gifts with marshmallows. Originally it was called Marshmallow Day, and later it was changed to White Day.

Soon, the chocolate companies started realizing that they could capitalize as well on this day, and began marketing white chocolate."

Daylight saving time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daylight saving time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Daylight saving time (DST), also known as summer time in British English, is the convention of advancing clocks so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour in late winter or early spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. Details vary by location and change occasionally; see When it starts and stops below."

John Hodgman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Hodgman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "John Kellogg Hodgman[1] (born June 1971) is an American author and humorist whose work has been published in the The Paris Review, The New York Times Magazine, and McSweeney's Quarterly Concern. He has also contributed to Public Radio International’s This American Life, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Wiretap and, of late, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Hodgman’s first book, The Areas of My Expertise, was published in 2005. In addition to his work in literature, he is the founder of and master of ceremonies for The Little Gray Book Lectures in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. As of February 2007, however, the lectures have been on hiatus 'for the foreseeable future' (which, according to littlegraybooks.com, means ''until at least Jan. 1 2007'' - though the notice has been up as early as September 2006), due to Hodgman's slew of new projects. Hodgman also provided his own narration to the audiobook version of The Areas of My Expertise.

Hodgman has recently had much exposure personifying a PC in Apple's 'Get a Mac' advertising campaign."

Microsoft blasts Google for book-scanning plan

Microsoft blasts Google for book-scanning plan: "Software giant Microsoft Corp. lashed out at Google Inc.'s rival book-scanning project, saying the internet company's plan 'systematically violates copyright.'

In prepared remarks he is scheduled to deliver Tuesday to a publishing industry group, a Microsoft lawyer said Google is cutting into the profits of authors and publishers in its rush to grab content.

'Companies that create no content of their own, and make money solely on the backs of other people's content, are raking in billions through advertising revenue,' wrote Thomas C. Rubin, an associate general counsel at Microsoft, in the speech he was scheduled to give at the annual meeting of the Association of American Publishers in New York."

Project Constellation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Project Constellation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Project Constellation is NASA's current plan for space exploration as of August 2006. It consists of a family of new spacecraft, launchers and associated hardware that allow for a variety of missions, from Space Station resupply, to lunar landings. Most of the Constellation hardware is based on systems originally developed for the Space Shuttle, although the key hardware, the Orion Spacecraft (formerly known as the 'Crew Exploration Vehicle' or CEV), is heavily influenced by the earlier Apollo Spacecraft, using a two-part crew and service module system. Proposed Constellation missions may employ both Earth Orbit Rendezvous and Lunar Orbit Rendezvous techniques.

The program's vehicle concept can be broken down into three parts: The Orion Crew & Service Modules, the Lunar Surface Access Module, and the launch vehicles (LV). The launch vehicles proposed for use in the program include the unmanned Ares V (for launch of the Earth Departure Stage and either the LSAM or cargo), the manned Ares I LV (for launch of the Orion spacecraft), and the Ares IV, which combines the functions of the two."

Facebook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Facebook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Facebook is an English-language social networking website, popular among college students. It was originally developed for university students, faculty and staff, but has since expanded to include everyone, including high school, corporate and geographic communities.

As of February 2007, the website had the largest number of registered users among college-focused sites with over 17 million members worldwide(also from non-college networks). [1] [2]

It is the number one site for photos, ahead of public sites such as Flickr, with 2.3 million photos uploaded daily[3], and is the seventh most visited site in the United States, according to comScore's Media Metrix.

The name of the site is based on the paper facebooks that colleges give to incoming students, faculty, and staff depicting members of the campus community"
