I've been eagerly awaiting the posting of the post-flyby images to the New Horizons raw image website, but alas, it became clear on Friday morning (when the images from the first post-flyby transmission, "E-Health 1", should have hit the website)... The policy enshrined in the mission's Data Management Plan (PDF) is that "There are no proprietary data rights for the New Horizons mission. Selected uncalibrated (CODMAC Level 2) data, particularly image data, will be publicly released by the New Horizons project over the Internet in close to real time. " In January of this year, when it became time to interpret that policy for the Pluto flyby, Alan Stern told me that images would be released within 24 hours of arrival on Earth. at the end of April, when they began raw image release, that became 48 hours of arrival on Earth , and that's the policy that applied throughout Pluto approach. The 48-hour mark came and went early Friday morning, my time, and no pictures appeared, nor have any new ones appeared since. So I used my opportunity to ask a question of the panel at Friday's briefing to ask what was going on with raw image release, and learned that it will henceforth be less rapid and less frequent. I've exchanged some emails with Alan Stern to find out about the new policy. Here it is:. Raw images will be released in weekly batches around 4:00ish on Friday afternoons, eastern time (1:00pm-ish PT, 20:00-ish UT). The raw image releases will include everything downlinked through "close of business Tuesday" preceding... ) So, amateur image processors: Mark your calendars for Friday the 24th, let's hope the pictures do get released then, and then people around the world can spend the weekend processing the pictures. Post them far and wide, to your blogs, Twitter, Flickr, unmannedspaceflight. com, or whatever, and encourage your friends to join in and see what the science team was seeing.

It was a special day at Charlotte High School Monday as hundreds of kids arrived for the beginning of the Champion Academy. Volunteers welcomed more than 400 students considered to be at-risk students from across the Rochester area. East High graduate and Super Bowl champion Roland Williams created the camp. Williams tells News10NBC the key to improving education is to build students' confidence and life skills that goes beyond the playing field. In addition to sports, kids will learn how to play chess and job skills. Camper Dylan Foster says, "They said, it's like you can be successful, I want to be successful and that's why I signed up for this camp. Foster is like most of campers. he wants to succeed. That's one of the reasons why Williams created the camp. Williams says, "What I want to teach our students, whatever their dream is, they can use the same principals to be successful. For example, what do you want to be when you grow up. Be a basketball player, you can use all the stuff I got to help you. What do you want to be. A teacher. You can use all my football stuff to help you. "I'm like the shortest person out here and I don't know what to do because I don't know what to do," says Shaharee Ruther. "I don't know these people and I would like to meet most of them. The Champion Academy hopes to take students, boy or girl, short or tall, out of their comfort zones to challenge them to work together on one of 32 teams toward common goals. "I think that any relationship starts with a chance to become accountable," says Williams. "It starts with bonding and connecting as humans. They even took a written exam including topics like goal setting, internet competency and what goes into a credit score. Topics officials say will prepare them for a job interview. Jordan Adell says, "He wants to teach you the life lessons you need in this life. News10NBC is a sponsor of the Broncos, one of the 32 teams in the camp. The camp runs for two weeks. At that time, they'll re-take an exam they were administered Monday, ranging in topics from internet use to understanding a credit score. The Champion Academy continues to run throughout the year. Teams earn points according to school attendance, participation and grades. Source: www.whec.com
Maria, a native of Mexico, has been in the United States for a year, but still cannot find a job or fully connect with American culture. The complications do not arise from a lack of education. She has a bachelor's degree in psychology from a Mexican university but cannot put it to use because she does not speak fluent English. "When I came here, I couldn't work with psychology," she said. "We need to talk with people, and it's difficult for me to understand all the patients. Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose, a club of diverse adults share one common goal: learning to converse in English. The ESL Conversation Club's purpose is to create a welcoming environment for adult English learners to practice their skills with the help of a trained facilitator. They agreed to speak to Mosaic about their experiences learning English under the condition that their last names not be disclosed, out of immigration concerns. Dawit, from Ethiopia, said it is scary to even attempt a conversation with a stranger out of fear they will not understand him. "You don't have confidence anywhere you go if you don't speak English," Dawit said. Lu, from China, said she feels that she is at a disadvantage attending graduate school in the United States because she does not speak fluent English. Nevertheless, she continues to pursue a master's degree in material science engineering. "My English is not very well so to totally understand what my teacher is talking about is difficult," Lu said. "I have to spend more time with my studies than other students. Many of the club members are highly educated in their home countries, but resort to low-skill jobs or face unemployment while they learn English. Karin, from Peru, earned a bachelor's degree in social work in Peru but is unemployed. Karin said she must first complete an exam and interview at San Jose State University to validate her bachelor's degree. Being in the Conversation Club has allowed Karin to practice her English skills and work toward preparing for the exam. Though it is a classroom setting with a facilitator, the club is run through discussions. Many of the members feel it has been effective because they have meaningful conversations that relate to current events. "I've been to other ESL clubs and it's different people and different classes, but in this one I have really learned," Karin. Source: www.mercurynews.com
