    "The Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) is a high contrast imaging instrument that was built for the Gemini South Telescope in Chile. The instrument achieves high contrast at small angular separations, allowing for the direct imaging and integral field spectroscopy of extrasolar planets around nearby stars. The Gemini Planet Imager is being used at the Gemini South Telescope, located in Cerro Pachon, Chile. It saw the first light in November 2013, and entered regular operations in November 2014.[2] It is designed to directly detect young gas giants via their thermal emission. The planet 51 Eridani b is the first exoplanet discovered by the Gemini Planet Imager. It is a million times fainter than its parent star and shows the strongest methanesignature ever detected on an alien planet, which should yield additional clues as to how the planet formed." These people are doing astonishing work.

    Thank you, Marc Trestman

    There are so many good guys on the team. It's amazing. seeing a group of people working together like these guys are. Also, I like Walters sneakiness...... only team Drew didn't hear from prior to the draft, was the Bombers. Walters.....lurking in the weeds. imagine the GM's that are kicking their own asses over Streveler.

    setti institute has taken actual images of exo planets
  4. Harris interview, might have been a radio interview... said the same thing. There have been games where they just stopped running the ball. Maybe they've changed that approach.

    His followers are consumed with and driven by hatred, anger, and the idea that they are deserving of everything and others nothing. That everything is against them. "the war on christmas" I heard a right wing radio host ranting about "parasites" in America. Not much doubt who he was referring to.
  6. sure, do both, use every possible means they have.
  7. looked unintentional to me. He's never played dirty. The one on Messam, I think it was Awe, where it was clearly intentional... ejection and suspension. there are clear cut cases.
  8. It is about changing behavior. and Yes it will change behaviour. Takes a while for some players to change. but they do. Looks like Micah Awe has stopped head shots. It'll take a while, but the intentional head shots will stop. Maybe they will also use the sky camera. This is something that has been a part of football for decades. Not long ago, these kind of hits were celebrated, and put on highlight reels.Jack Tatum etc. gloating players standing over the prone concussed player. Not going to change in a year.
  9. I'm very glad they did this, should definitely help make players that are inclined to take head shots, stop doing it. Anything they can do to help stop head shots, is good. Ejection is what I want to see for the worst of it. I think it's odd that people are so critical. Very small, way to look at it. Slow down the game? so what. We are talking about brain damage, who gives a crap if this slows the game down, or results in a couple of questionable penalties. I also disagree that Ambrosie is doing a bad job. reffing is a problem in every single sports league in the world. Our guys for the most part do a decent job.
  10. I would like to see A. Harris, Streveler, and O line run the ball all over the field. maybe another 200 yards on the ground. I would also like to see a Nichols to Adams 50 yard bomb for a T.D. , and a pick six off Bo. and as well.... I hope that the Bombers have some things up the Mike's sweatshirt sleeve that will surprise Dave "Whiney" Dickensen

    Or they're trying to regain a tiny shred of credibilty. Probably not.
  12. How was Calgary against the run?
  13. use ignore, works well. good article with science, about california fires. https://www.yaleclimateconnections.org/2018/11/the-many-ways-climate-change-worsens-california-wildfires/ " a climate scientist says the reality on the ground is surpassing what a government report projected just months ago in assessing the links between climate change and an increasing frequency and severity of wildfires in the state. After a dry summer and fall, powerful winds over the past week swept flames through the town of Paradise in Northern California, killing at least 42 (50 now) people and destroying more than 6,500 (7600now) homes, officials said Tuesday. Two more fires near Los Angeles chased more than 200,000 people from their homes as the flames quickly spread, adding to a string of fires that have caused billions of dollars in damage this year. "I think what we have been observing has consistently been outpacing what we've been predicting," said LeRoy Westerling, professor of management of complex systems at the University of California, Merced, who modeled the risk of future wildfires as part of the California Climate Change Assessment released in August." that is.....the predicitions are on the low side. Calgary 1000 year flood, Ft McMurray, BC record fires.

    If this woman Ricardel is close to John Bolton, good riddance. Maybe the world will catch a break, and he'll be next. We would all be a lot safer. One of the biggest chicken hawks.
