    #NASASocial, Hubble Space Telescope at 25, Space Exploration and Social Media

    in Science

    On Thursday, 23-April, I had the privilege of attending a NASA Social Media Event at the Newseum in Washington, DC and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope.

    NASA Social is "a program to provide opportunities for NASA's social media followers to learn and share information about NASA's missions, people, and programs. NASA Social is the next evolution in the agency’s social media efforts. Formerly called NASA Tweetup, NASA Social program includes both special in-person events and social media credentials for individuals who share the news in a significant way. This program has brought thousands of people together for unique social media experiences of exploration and discovery."

    Please join me and my guest host and fellow NASA Social Alum Kathie Hagen as we talk about our experiences at NASA Social Events, the awesomeness of Hubble and it's successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, the future of space exploration and use of social media in generating public interest.

    CALL US at 516-387-1639 to join the conversation!

    NASA: The Past, Present and Future of Space Exploration

    in Science

    In 1962, JFK challenged the nation to "achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth."

    And guess what? We did it!

    NASA has achieved great things. Before Apollo 11 went to the moon, there was the Gemini program, and the Mercury program before that. After Apollo, there was the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. The Hubble telescope. As of this writing a spacecraft is on its way to Pluto.

    Join us with our special guest Kathie H., who recently attended the Goddard Center's State Of NASA event for social media mavens. Kathie will share her experiences with us and talk about the history and future of space travel.

    "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."
     - John F. Kennedy, Rice University Speech, 09/12/1962

    Armed & Fabulous : Episode 14 | Cisheterocollectivist Safe Space

    in Gardening

    Conservatives in Texas are tripping over themselves to figure out a way to argue that migrants should be denied gun rights under their state's liberal ownership laws. We condemn their bigotry as irrational and repugnant - Freedom is for EVERYBODY, even brown people. Today we'll pick up where we left off last week and dig deeper into this dark weird world where bigotry attempts to create safe space for middle class white cisgender heterosexual christians and throw everybody else in a cultural gulag - all while trumpeting their commitment to "freedom".

    Personalized Space Clearing

    in Self Help

    Indigenous cultures around the globe have used space clearing to shift the energy of a space for hundreds of years. It’s a way to honor a home for all that it gives to us, honor those who live there or once lived there, and bring in the energy for new beginnings. It also is used to mark sacred events in our lives, like weddings, births and important gatherings of friends and family.

    The techniques used to clear space are as varied as the cultures from which they come, all of which can lead to profound, powerful changes in your life. Part of what can be overwhelming are the number of tools used for clearings – sage, drums, bells, incense, feathers, fans, essential oils, crystals, candles, gongs, tingshas, rattles, and more.

    What’s most important; however, is not necessarily having expertise in the use of all of these tools, but finding the right tools for you. This is part of what makes Interior Alignment training unique. We work with students to help them find the right tools for them.

    Furthermore, we work with students to help them connect with their own gifts and guides that personalizes their space clearings to make them even more powerful for their clients.  

    On today’s show, Master Teacher of Interior Alignment Bill Schwingel will share ways in which to make clearings as individual as you are, and ultimately have a greater effect on your space. The show begins at 6 p.m. EST, we hope you’ll be able to listen or call in!

    Bill received his training in 2003 from Interior Alignment founder Denise Linn. He has been studying Feng Shui and Space Clearing for years, helping clients understand the flow of energy in their space and the many ways they can improve their homes or businesses. He finds his inspiration from nature, connecting with the energy of the earth, the trees and the animals to gather insights for his clients.

    Using Feng Shui and Space Clearing to Align your Life

    in Self Help

    Have you noticed when you are working, if you have everything you need, time, materials and space,  that your work flows more easily?  When your ‘to do list’ matches the schedule you have created, and your space to work in contains everything you need to accomplish the task, how perfectly it flows and how easy it is to accomplish your goals? Conversely, what about those days when your to do list says one thing, your schedule takes you completely in a different direction and the space your are trying to work in is missing all the tools, and inspiration needed to do a great job? It’s so much harder to accomplish your goals.

    Join Host Master Educator LuAnn Cibik on this eye opening show on imagining your perfect life, and how you apply this information to create the home and office that supports this goal. It’s more than ergonomics and organization. Have you surrounded yourself with what you need to success? Take a short Synchro-Alignment Journey to experience you home in a new way, and then learn specific ways to shift the space easily into a template for YOUR PERFECT SUCCESSFUL LIFE!

    This years Interior Alignment Feng shui and Space Clearing conference is entitles, Living in Alignment. The conference is November 13-14-15 in San Luis Obispo CA. You can find out more at www.interioralignment.com
