The Freedom video made a real impression on me even before I knew who was behind it.

Relativity theory shows that the stronger gravity is, the slower time goes. Time is an important variable that GPS satellites use to triangulate your location. And if you're orbiting 10,000 miles above the Earth's surface the weaker gravity at that distance can throw things off by 500 trillionths of a second each second. That doesn't sound like much but would result in inaccuracies of several miles making GPS pretty useless.

My son is looking at Caltech, who with MIT, are leaders in the LIGO efforts. They also recently "killed" Pluto and predicted a new, unseen ninth planet based on gravitational pull of nearby orbits. Just wow. Here's a LIGO video that is for laypeople like me:

The precision of these measurements is beyond comprehension for most everyone.

Watching Cam " I won't dive for my fumble" Newton and the post game SuperBowl, it made me appreciate the NHL's Stanley Cup and classy hand shake ceremony.
Throughout many Red Wings broadcasts you hear about how Larkin is just keeping his mouth shut and earning his stripes despite leading the team in points and +/-. Chris Osgood mentioned how nice it was to see Larkin's personality because he is so humble and quiet when interviewed.
My daughter's friend is from Larkin's hometown and has a brother who has a medical condition. Larkin is sympathetic to this cause ( I believe it is in family too but am not sure). She asked if the boy could meet Larkin. He responded way over the top in kindness and generosity.
It just makes me smile when I hear good players are good guys too.

So does the bench

One of UMs biggest $ guys can advertise whatever he wants.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Will Minnesota beat Rutgers||
This game is far from over but Minnesota looks to be one of the least skilled teams I've seen in a long time

Has no idea how to switch off a screen

We are so lucky to have this coaching legend in A2. The things she has accomplished in a sport dominated by warm weather schools is amazing.

May I suggest you do the opposite of what you planned to do.
|3 days 14 hours ago||Henry Aaron and Willie Mays - legends||
The term is over used but these guys are the real deal. Wow, so cool JH got to hang out with the "say hey kid". He must be gushing.
Years ago, I was fortunate enough to have lunch with legend Ernie Harwell. I was glowing for weeks.

Funny concept, wrong product though. Especially when Audi, Buick and one other released hot cars earlier.

Detroit population decline blamed on no SB appearances...

Chinese take out. Cheap date night .

Not crying any sympathy tears but as an outsider it is amazing how Rutgers bad these teams are. MSU's swim team would probably lose a dual meet to an Ann Arbor area HS all-star team and many of their kids have not improved their times.

Good day on the ice
|6 days 20 hours ago||It weighs like 50 pounds||
Not sure I could hoist it on skates but it would make a great door stop.
|6 days 20 hours ago||I just thought of bars I go for Wings games that have shuttles||
and the beer flowing. I'm going to the Loco Bar tomorrow for the Wings/Islanders.
Let the waitresses know you are looking for tickets. Don't ask them to shove anything in your pockets though. Good luck.
I mean if they were dumping tickets for $10 promotions, the resale market will be a buyers paradise. Have you ever been to these games? The Joe is 1/3 empty. MSU is like the worst of RichRod bad. They are as bad as the MSU swim team which will get killed again at Canham tomorrow.
|6 days 20 hours ago||try asking on @umichhockey on twitter or just go down w/o tix||
There have to be many tickets "available". No Sparty in their right mind wants to see that team's defense versus the hottest line in college hockey. Plus playing for the Iron D is not like hoisting the Stanley Cup.

|6 days 21 hours ago||Go to ticketmaster Little Ceasar 4 pack $12.50 each||
I got through...
|6 days 21 hours ago||Go to Tommy's, Detroiter or any hockey bar by JLA||
tickets will be available plus you meet some nice people. I do this all the time for Wings games unless I'm bringing someone really old or my wife ; )
|6 days 21 hours ago||$20 and a Wings cap for a lower bowl seat?||
not bad. Can't imagine the resale market is going to be good for the scalpers. They were giving away several tickets on WTKA today. If you wait until face off I would bet:
# of UM goals tonight > $ you would pay for your seat ( both near $10)
|6 days 22 hours ago||This is no joke||
Serious issues for a guy who happens to be extremely talented so some of you care how it relates to your entertainment. His dad thinking he may not survive too many more months is probably close to the truth. Very sad.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Herb Brooks GIF aside||
You are having trouble getting tickets to this game? If you go to Brandon's Greektown bar they will probably be giving them away with two Cokes.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Who wants to see this match...?||
|6 days 22 hours ago||Too bad UL cant follow Calipari's model behavior, ugh||
Two of the biggest scumbags ever.
The current UL kids suffer and coaches still cashing their big checks. NIght of pain, really?
