This is a rare post for me because it's a Sesame Street segment from the mid to late 90's. Although I collected tons of 70's classic segments, I recorded this one because I found it hilarious. This is the funniest "modern" Sesame Street segment I have seen! In fact, the ONLY funny one in my opinion. There were a few of these "dumb dog" segments in the 90's but this is the only one I have. I'm sure it's the funniest one though. This video will attract the "younger" Sesame Street fans, who by far out-populate the older fans like me. The proof is the 30 to 60000 hits the "newer" late 80's and 90's segments are getting.....and they were only posted one to two months ago!
Without a doubt, this is one of the big ones. I thought I'd put this up quick, because I figured I'd get requests for it eventually... this one just struck a chord with people! As for what it's a parody of... no one seems to know. Some people (myself included) think it was a parody of Lucas's "Lucas With The Lid Off", but no one really knows for sure... that seems to be the closest match. Got a Nye song request? Tell me!

Here we see the later life stages of several Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui)Butterflies. Once the caterpillars are mature, they suspend themselves upside-down, by attaching a body part called the "cremaster" to a silken pad on the twig, much like the way Velcro works. In about 1 day, the caterpillar sheds its final skin to complete the pupation process. Inside the pupa, the caterpillar has essentially liquified itself into a soup of cells. During the next 12-14 days, metamorphosis takes place - the cells are "re-arranged" and transformed into the adult insect. For most of this process, there is no visible change on the outside, but as the final few days approach, the developing adult butterfly can be seen through the semi-transparent pupal case. The butterfly's wing colors and pattern can be seen to darken. Finally, the fully developed adult separates from the pupal shell about an hour before it emerges, a process called "eclosion". Once the adult emerges, it takes only a few minutes to expand its wings by pumping a body fluid into the wings' vein structure. After a couple of hours, the fluid dries and hardens, leaving the wings rigid enough propel it in flight.
Shot April 7, 2008 in Suzhou, China. The "balls" are silkworm larvae (like catepillars) that have finished their "eating" stage of their life cycle and are undergoing complete metamorphosis to transform into a pupae and then a moth. The catepillar/worm creates the safe coccoon in which to turn unto a pupae and then a moth. The coccoon is made out of silk. The process of harvesting the silk ends the life of the pupae. In order to reproduce the silkworms, other silkworms are allowed to fully mature into moths. When they emerge from the coccoon as moths, they destroy the coccoon, making the silk unusable. We did not see the silkworms in other life stages (egg, worm, moth.)

songlinesofthewhales.org An encounter with Sweetheart and her calf Heartthrob. An hour long encounter unique in the fact that it was the first time in our twenty years of research that a mother allowed a calf to interact directly with us in total trust. We name the whales mnemonically. We give them a name associated with a bodily marking or personality trait which helps us to remember and quickly recognize them in future encounters. Sweetheart, the mother, is named after a heart shaped marking she has near her dorsal fin. She is with her new calf Heartthrob who is only a few months old. Calves remain with their mother for about a year. Sweetheart had a calf in 1998 named Heartsong and a calf in 1999 named Heartbeat. The two escorts are also whales that are very well known to us. Their names are Nebo and Demi. The song is clearly audible through the hull of the research vessel. Depending on the proximity of the singer, the song is also audible while standing on the deck. The sound pressure level of the song is reduced significantly once it passes into the air. Whales speak to each other constantly. The cadence and syncopation of their normal conversations are much different from that of their songs. They often make sounds above water through their blow holes. Balaena universus hominis Whale as one with Human SONGLINES documents the evolution of the intricate and beautiful East Australian Humpback song.

Each year, Americans gather with families and friends in the third week of November to celebrate Thanksgiving. The celebration usually includes a meal of turkey, sweet potatoes, squash, cornbread, cranberries, and pumpkin pie. The first Thanksgiving meal in North America is thought to have taken place in sixteen-twenty-one as European settlers gathered with Native Americans to give thanks for a successful fall harvest. Many Americans believe Thanksgiving was created by the early European settlers. But as Jeff Swicord learns at the Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, Native Americans also played a major role

Physical Science project, about ENERGY (: There are 9 types of energy. Energy forms are either kinetic or potential. Kinetic energy forms are doing work like electrical, thermal, radiant, motion, and sound. Potential energy comes in forms that are stored including chemical, gravitational, mechanical, and nuclear. Electrical Energy is what is stored in a battery, and can be used to power a cell phone or start a car. Electrical energy is delivered by tiny charged particles called electrons, typically moving through a wire. Lightning is an example of electrical energy in nature. Electrical energy can be produced in several ways. It can be produced by a generator but it can also be produced by a battery in a chemical reaction. Some objects that use electrical energy are television, toaster, microwave, computer and cell phones. Thermal Energy, or heat, is the vibration and movement of the atoms and molecules in objects. As an object is heated up, its atoms and molecules move and collide faster. Geothermal energy is the thermal energy in the Earth. The sun is the biggest source for thermal energy. Some examples of Thermal energy are A fire, rubbing your hands together causing friction, and boiling water. Radiant Energy is electromagnetic energy that travels in waves. Radiant energy includes visible light, x-rays, gamma rays and radio waves. Light is one type of radiant energy. Sunshine is radiant energy, which provides the fuel and warmth that make life on Earth possible ...

This compilation of video shows some of the first imagery and data sent back from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Most of the imagery comes from SDO's AIA instrument, and different colors are used to represent different temperatures, a common technique for observing solar features. SDO sees the entire disk of the Sun in extremely high spacial and temporal resolution and this allows scientists to zoom in on notable events like flares, waves, and sunspots. Enjoy the imagery and post in the comments the parts you found most captivating. To learn more about the SDO mission, visit: sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov To find these videos for download, check out www.nasa.gov svs.gsfc.nasa.gov Launched on Feb. 11, 2010, SDO is the most advanced spacecraft ever designed to study the sun. During its five-year mission, it will examine the sun's magnetic field and also provide a better understanding of the role the sun plays in Earth's atmospheric chemistry and climate. Since launch, engineers have been conducting testing and verification of the spacecrafts components. Now fully operational, SDO will provide images with clarity 10 times better than high-definition television and will return more comprehensive science data faster than any other solar observing spacecraft.

The California desert is a vast, unforgiving place in the summer, where temperatures can sometimes rise above 120 F. It's hard to believe anything can live in this brutal desert climate, but they can, and do. Veronica Hill of California Travel Tips tours the Living Desert zoo in Palm Desert, viewing some of the most common desert animals found in North America. Plan on at least a full day to enjoy this gorgeous 1200 acre park. You'll spot a large number of animals founds here in our California desert, from the adorable bobcat and crafty coyote, to the majestic mountain lion. Be sure to arrive early in the morning if you want to see the animals in action. By mid-day, many have retired to their burrows for a nap and reprieve from the intense desert heat. A highlight for me was a glimpse at two endangered species — the desert bighorn sheep, found in the rocky mountains of California, and the gorgeous Mexican wolf, once found throughout the Southwest. This is also one of the few places where you'll find the rare and tiny desert pupfish, which can survive in waters over 100 degrees. If you're into birdwatching, this is a great place to see some beautiful desert birds up close, from the roadrunner and hummingbird to the golden eagle and Great Horned Owl. Look up in the sky and you may spot a Harris Hawk coming down for a landing. I hope you've enjoyed this quick look at the animals of the Living Desert.

This animation shows one molecule of water completing the hydrologic cycle. Heat from the sun causes the molecule to evaporate from the ocean's surface. Once it evaporates, it is transported high in the atmosphere and condenses to form clouds. Clouds can move great distances and eventually the water molecule will fall as rain or snow. Ultimately, the water molecule arrives back where it started...at the ocean. credit: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center source: svs.gsfc.nasa.gov
