Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

According to Judge Hazel’s order, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was supposed to have responded to the court with either a motion for a preliminary injunction or a notice withdrawing his request to file such a motion not later than 28 August, 2014. Here’s the envelope in which TDPK mailed his withdrawal notice.ECF192-1It was mailed on 29 August, one day late.ECF 192-1 postmark#Fail.


Prevarication Du Jour

rnusa201408011918ZOh, I’m lying, am I?

Here’s what I allege in paragraph 19 of my Amended Complaint.WJJH v WMS ECF 9-19WJJH v WMS ECF 39-19Here’s is how The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt™ answered that allegation. There’s no qualification. He made a flat-out denial of everything alleged in the paragraph. That means that he denied publishing the ebook and that he offered it for sale. That may not have been what he meant, but it is what he said.

Dust Rings and Exoplanets

HR4796A Dust RingSPHERE is the Spectro-Polarimetric High-contrast Exoplanet Research instrument, and ithas been installed on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) at the Paranal Observatory in Chile. This picture is from its first light observations and shows a dust ring around a star known as HR 4796A.

The new instrument uses multiple advanced techniques, yielding dramatically better performance than previously possible. The first is improved adaptive optics to correct for the effects of the Earth’s atmosphere so that images are sharper and the contrast of the exoplanet increased. Second, a coronagraph is used to block out the light from the star and increase the contrast still further. Third, differential imaging exploits differences between planetary and stellar light color or polarization.
