Wildcards are my personal favorites!

I love being able to fully express myself while seeing others do the same.

Wildcard assignments allows for one to focus on something one likes or loves even though it may be a bit odd or eccentric to others.

Crystals of all kind I do Love! I honestly have a huge crush on mother nature in generall because she truly is a daily phenomenon and she holds so much wisdom to behold.

One of my favorite crystals is called a rose quartz crystal and I use them mainly for meditation and healing work. Quartz crystals come in many different variations, shapes and styles and they’re known to emit and or enhance positive or negative energies. What’s astonishing is the fact that the quartz crystals can also hold memory data!

Just look at what ZME Science have to say about it!

“Coined as the ‘Superman memory crystal’, as the glass memory has been compared to the “memory crystals” used in the Superman films, the data is recorded via self-assembled nanostructures created in fused quartz. The information encoding is realised in five dimensions: the size and orientation in addition to the three dimensional position of these nanostructures,” reads a press release.

Hubba Does It Well!

Hubba will be on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram from April 29th- May 5th!

So what is Hubba?

Hubba is a global wholesale marketplace that powers the new retail economy. Using a combination of machine learning and personal curation, Hubba verifies and connects independent Brands and Retailers, making purchasing the right wholesale products easy. Hubba will become the driving force behind independent retail. By unifying independent Retailers, Hubba gives them the power they need to level the playing field. Hubba currently services 100,000 SMBs and counting.

With so many new and innovative retailers, this is just the help they’ll need to allow for greater sales and customer satisfaction.

It can be very competitive in today’s marketplace, and so any help that brings in greater exposure will always be benificial. Making things easier to find and navigate makes life much easier for many when time is a factor.

This is a great example of a curation done well by Hubba, and its very resourceful and easy to understand and navigate!

Astronomy & Black Holes

I have a deep love for the stars and so below I will link you to some really cool resourceful sites that I use which teaches on black holes and astronomy in general.

NASA 

Here is a very good link to one of NASA’s sites that allows one to really learn a lot in one place about black holes and how their growth may affect their host galaxies.

National Geographic

When one wants information about space-time and or how gravitational waves effect our earth, this is a very good site and its full of new discoveries geographically.

PBS.org

This site talks about the possibilities of a black hole apocalypse and it gives a very informative video about what one could expect if it were to happen to earth.

Astrophysical Journal Letter

This site allows scientists to come together globally with common monthly information about discoveries and calculations. The monthly letter for April 2018, talks about black holes. Oxford University publishes these monthly articles.

 

Neil deGrasse Tyson is on Twitter!

I’m new to the Twitter scene however, I am not at all new to social media. I seem to really like anything environmental especially cosmic based.

Neil Tyson is one of my favorite astrophysics along with the late Carl Sagan. I chose to follow Neil on Twitter because he knows his science stuff, and he has an amazing way of speaking scientifically. If you are interested in outer space and how the cosmos relate and affects us all through astronomy, then you’ll enjoy his Twitter posts and news.pexels-photo-110854.jpeg(free Google art)

Neil Tyson is best known for the Space odyssey where he took many of us on a quest to discover outer space in a creative documentary he did called COSMOS.

Neil took many of us on a 13 part sequel to Carl Sagan’s 1980 landmark television documentary called Cosmos. The Cosmos: A lifetime Odyssey, which was and still is a very informative space odyssey that takes one on many adventures with new discovers to be had.

I really like how Neil Tyson, displays himself; cool, funny and extremely smart. I have followed him on other social media sites as well for sometime now and so I can safely say whoever follows him is in for a informative cosmic treat!

An informative curration about space news!

Nuzzel is a great way to learn about aggregating creative stories and or reading on informative news.

NASA has some exciting news about Chandra’s new discoveries since it’s space launched in 1999. A particular Super Nova was discovered by Chinese astronomers in 1054 A.D. and was labeled as the Crab Nebula. A bright ring of highly energy charged particles around the heart of the Crab Nebula was than observed by Chandra in 1999 near the constellation Taurus.solar-system-emergence-spitzer-telescope-telescope-41951.jpegfree Google art

Since than many observations has taken place, and through X-ray data, Chandra has been able to take photos and extract new information on the Crab Nebula’s evolution. Chandra can detect x-ray emissions from very hot regions of the universe by design. Chandra will celebrated its 20th year anniversary space launch with NASA in the year 2019!

This Aggregation example is a very informative one and a great way to learn a lot in one place however, a lot of information sometimes given in one place can be a bit much.

Here’s a summary of my social media and aggregation accounts

I’ve been posting online and aggregating for a long time, so I do have quite a few “aggregation sources” and other links about myself. The one place where you can find me is my own website, NancyHanus.com

But my Twitter Feed (@nhanus) and my Instagram account have also been around for more than 10 years. I use YouTube and Vimeo to upload video, and SoundCloud for audio, although must of the things I’ve uploaded have been on publication sites, so what you’ll find on my personal profiles are videos of my family (mostly my daughter doing gymnastics!)

One YouTube channel you might find interesting, though, is this one called JournalismVideo, which I created for my MSU journalism classes and study abroad trips in 2010-2011. I had actually forgotten all about it until I dug it up for this blog. If any of you want to upload a video for this class on this site, let me know!

I use Nuzzel for aggregation, as well as Feedly and Google Alerts. Feedly has been ticking me off a bit lately because the service keeps trying to upgrade me — and really restricts what I can do and have access for free. As a result I don’t use it much anymore. I love Tweetdeck for aggregating tweets and seeing Twitter lists.

There are a couple of really cool sites that allow you to aggregate in fun ways, such as StumbleUpon, which let’s you “stumble” into really cool stories based on your interests. I suggest you give it a try! I also like Flipboard, which I use on my iPhone and iPad.

For my professional profile, I use LinkedIn. I also have a profile at Muckrack.com. I have a Google+ account, but there’s not much there. It’s a good idea to have one because it gives you good SEO (Search Engine Optimization) but it’s just not something I keep up with.

Ron French shines light on what Besty DeVos doesn’t know

In a “60 minute” interview with Besty DeVos, Ron French shines light on many questions that should have easily been answered by the current United States secretary of education. Ron also shines light on the lack of awareness that Besty DeVos has toward her job description and the school educational system in this live clip.

Betsy DeVos currently sits as the United States secretary of education and yet, she didn’t know and couldn’t answers fundamental questions like, how poorly the schools are doing academically and financially overall and or steps to take to bring solutions.pexels-photo-280264.jpeg(free Goggle art)

Ron French does a good job by providing meaningful counteracting solutions to help solve the rapidly growing problems that the educational system is currently faced with in Michigan.

Ron French, gives four different examples to move Michigan toward new ways that are beneficial to Michigan’s school, teachers and students while also highlighting important facts that are currently taking place and needing to be addressed. This story was covered in a way that allows the people to see who they elected or didn’t, and also how well they are really doing at the job they were selected for.

Other additional information is added below to bring more awareness to some of Michigan’s pending issues and solutions.

Michigan’s riding high. But a downturn is coming and the safety net is frayed.
