some finds for today

Another thing to believe in. Sponge Bob Square Pants...he is a god.

The Meaning of Um. Linguists and psychologists bring "um" and "uh" into discussion.

Funky sunset happened yesterday for a good portion of North America, Asia and the Pacific. Bummer I didn't know about it and that it wasn't easily seen where I am. An annular solar eclipse isn't the same as a total eclipse. The moon is too small during an annular eclipse to totally block out the sun, as in a total eclipse where only the corona is seen glowing over the edges of the moon. Check out some of the images from the June 10th eclipse. Way cool.

NASA recommends this week for viewing spaceships go by in your backyard. Sounds odd? No, they mean the International Space Station (ISS) and the space shuttle Endeavour.
Here are the dates and times for optimal viewing, depending on where you are. The station will appear brighter than a first-magnitude star over certain cities. If you're interested in where ISS is right now...click here.

PricewaterhouseCoopers is rebranding themselves with a new name. They are giving a new meaning to Monday. A $110 million budget is set aside for this rebranding effort in an attempt to bring the company away from the tainted image of accountancy firms like Enron. Monday's ad campaign is focusing on a fresh start to the week, fresh brewed coffee and strawberries. (I don't get the strawberries part.) What I find a bit odd and possibly a hurdle the company may have to overcome is that most people don't like Monday. I guess we'll see how it goes.
