  • Trust me.
    These two words run the world of money. Finance is a complicated beast, too difficult for most of us to fully understand…you trust the financial pundits or institutions around you, hoping that things will turn out well and that you will get your money back…
    But these days it seems that your trust may be misplaced…
    Financial news headlines are another source of awe and wonder…There's always a reason for a fact, despite some of these movements being only noise…But it's reflective of us as a society: we desire – no, demand – reasons. And in the process, overemphasize the obvious and underplay the benign…
    our lives are intertwined with money more than ever before. We might have earlier trusted the industry to take care of our money; it no longer seems that's a given. That just means we have to figure things for ourselves…
    Education, it is said, is all about learning to learn. And…just because it's Greek doesn't mean it can't affect us.

  • his brand new Hubble photo is of a small portion of one of the largest seen star-birth regions in the galaxy, the Carina Nebula. Towers of cool hydrogen laced with dust rise from the wall of the nebula. The scene is reminiscent of Hubble's classic "Pillars of Creation" photo from 1995, but is even more striking in appearance. The image captures the top of a three-light-year-tall pillar of gas and dust that is being eaten away by the brilliant light from nearby bright stars. The pillar is also being pushed apart from within, as infant stars buried inside it fire off jets of gas that can be seen streaming from towering peaks like arrows sailing through the air.
