The Local Nursing Home Is An Indoor Town. There’s A Movie Theater And Pub
This place is called “Doverwood Village”. It’s a skilled nursing facility located in Hamilton, OH. Senior residents receive 24-hour medical care while also getting the rehabilitation care they need, which can include range of motion exercises, gait and balance training and individualized exercise programs. The movie theater shows movies 2x each day. An old one and a new one.
This Is What Some Grains Of Sand Look Like When Magnified 100 To 300 Times
Meet Gary Greenberg, a remarkable individual who dons multiple hats as a scientist, author, teacher, and photographer. Fusing his love for art and science, he embarks on a captivating journey to uncover the hidden dimensions of nature. On his website, he eloquently states, “The enigmatic secrets of nature surround us, awaiting revelation.” Through the lens of a microscope, Greenberg exposes the tangible miracles of nature, emphasizing that its true magnificence lies in its consciousness. By immersing ourselves in nature, we awaken to our profound connection with the vast universe.
Greenberg’s expertise is unquestionable, with a trail of accomplishments that include the invention of high-definition 3D lenses, leading to the acquisition of 18 U.S. patents bearing his name. Initially a photographer and filmmaker, he later embarked on an extraordinary transition, moving from Los Angeles to London to pursue a Ph.D. in biomedical research. This transformative journey has bestowed upon him a distinctive appreciation for the wonders of biology and science, as well as the optical macro photography technologies essential for documenting them.
The unique grain of sand captured in his photograph hails from the picturesque beaches of Hawaii, where Dr. Greenberg currently resides. It serves as a testament to his passion and unwavering commitment to uncover the mesmerizing diversity of Earth’s sand compositions.

Rocks On The Lake Baikal
Rocks on the lake Baikal get heated from the sunlight every now and then and melt the ice beneath. After the sun is gone, the ice turns solid again thus creating a small stand for the rock above. It is called the Baikal Dzen.

This Is A Music Typewriter: How Music Was Typed Before Computers
Marketed in the 1950s, it sold for about $255 (about $2,415 in today’s money). Keaton was trying to create something that would print characters precisely on staff and indicate exactly where the next character would be printed to ensure accuracy, and ended up with a circular keyboard which gives the typewriter its distinct look.

Sun Through A UV Lens
NASA’s fleet of spacecraft dedicated to observing the Sun has made a remarkable discovery—an unprecedented sequence of eruptions that involved a rapid succession of energetic bursts leading to the gradual release of a colossal outburst of solar material from the Sun’s atmosphere. Through the use of extreme ultraviolet light, researchers have identified the origins of these bursts as intense jets and accompanying flares within the corona.
Nathalia Alzate, a solar scientist from the University of Aberystwyth in Wales, elaborated on the findings, stating, “The source of these puffs can be traced back to localized, catastrophic releases of energy known as jets. These jets propel vast amounts of material from the Sun into the vastness of space. The resulting rapid fluctuations in the magnetic field trigger flares, which unleash an immense surge of energy within a remarkably brief timeframe, manifesting as superheated plasma, high-energy radiation, and radio bursts.” This revelation sheds new light on the dynamic nature of the Sun and its profound influence on the surrounding solar system.

A Curly-Haired Horse
The exact origin of the Bashkir Curly Horse is one of the greatest mysteries of the horse world. Horses with curly coats are most certainly an ancient breed. They have been depicted in art and statuary in early China as far back as 161 AD. There has been evidence of their presence in South America and Europe. There is evidence that Curlies have been in North America since the early 1800’s.

This Butterfly Is A Bilateral Gynandromorph, Literally Half Male, Half Female
A gynandromorph is a unique organism that exhibits both male and female characteristics. However, this particular butterfly showcases an intriguing variation known as bilateral gynandromorphism, wherein one half of its body is entirely female while the other half is entirely male. The underlying cause of this phenomenon usually stems from an event during mitosis in the early stages of development, although it is not always the case.
At the cellular level, when the organism consists of only a few cells, one of the dividing cells deviates from the typical pattern of sex chromosome division. Consequently, one of the two resulting cells carries sex chromosomes that prompt male development, while the other cell possesses chromosomes that trigger female development. For instance, an XY cell undergoing mitosis may duplicate its chromosomes, resulting in an XXYY configuration. Under normal circumstances, this cell would divide into two XY cells. However, in rare instances, it may divide into an X cell and an XYY cell. If this division occurs early in development, a significant proportion of cells become X and another significant portion become XYY. Since X and XYY dictate different sexes, the organism possesses tissues that exhibit both male and female characteristics.
Nasa’s Photo Of Pluto
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft captured this high-resolution enhanced color view of Pluto on July 14, 2015. The image combines blue, red and infrared images taken by the Ralph/Multispectral Visual Imaging Camera (MVIC). Pluto’s surface sports a remarkable range of subtle colors, enhanced in this view to a rainbow of pale blues, yellows, oranges, and deep reds. Many landforms have their own distinct colors, telling a complex geological and climatological story that scientists have only just begun to decode. The image resolves details and colors on scales as small as 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers).

Experts believe it could be a Salpa maggiore (Salpa maxima), commonly found in the Southern Ocean. Salps tend to roam the upper layers of the ocean where sunlight can still penetrate. They move by straining water through their gelatinous bodies, feeding on phytoplankton and other small bits of organic matter. The ghostly appearance is believed to be a form of camouflage for the otherwise defenseless creature.
