Happy #EarthDay - regram @nasa
Today, April 22, 2014 is Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate than taking a look at our home planet from space.
NOAA’s GOES-East satellite captured this stunning view of the Americas on Earth Day, April 22, 2014 at 11:45 UTC/7:45 a.m. EDT. The data from GOES-East was made into an image by the NASA/NOAA GOES Project at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
GOES satellites provide the kind of continuous monitoring necessary for intensive data analysis. Geostationary describes an orbit in which a satellite is always in the same position with respect to the rotating Earth. This allows GOES to hover continuously over one position on Earth’s surface, appearing stationary. As a result, GOES provide a constant vigil for the atmospheric “triggers” for severe weather conditions such as tornadoes, flash floods, hail storms and hurricanes.

Now that is what I am talking about!!! Been waiting to see which issue @Esquiremag would send me. #TomHardy #aviary
Author Brigid Schulte says companies should stop rewarding overworked employees and focus on productivity instead.
At one company, staying late at the office is actually viewed as a sign of inefficiency and can result in dismissal. “[This company says] if you cannot figure out how to do your job in 40 hours, we will fire you.”
It’s 8:15 a.m. In Wellesley and in just a few hours runners will be streaming by this sign, halfway home!
