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.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


There are times when I wonder if The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin actually reads the pleadings we defendants file in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness or if, perhaps, he thinks that the judge doesn’t. Consider this allegation he makes in his opposition to the Malking/Twitchy motion to dismiss.ECF 67-p4On the contrary, we defendants had already addressed the non-existence of a RICO conspiracy in our motions to dismiss. This is from the Malkin/Twitchy motion.ECF 41-p18This is from my motion to dismiss.ECF 5-18All the other defendants who had filed motions to dismiss by the time TDPK filed his pleading had poked similar holes in his allegation.

Venus in UV


Global_dynamics_of_Venus_northern_hemisphere_node_full_imageThis false-colour movie was put together using ultraviolet images taken by the Venus Monitoring Camera on board ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft on 22 May, 2006. The spacecraft was flying over the northern hemisphere at distances ranging between about 39,100 and 22,600 km from the surface.
