TONIGHT: Black Moon 2016 – What It Is (and Why You Can’t See It)

Updated for 9/30: Friday’s sky (Sept. 30) is host to a somewhat unusual lunar event in the Western Hemisphere: a second new moon in a single month, which some people call a “Black Moon.”

While a full moon refers to the moment when the moon’s Earth-facing side is fully illuminated by sunlight, a new moon refers to the moment when the moon’s Earth-facing side is fully in shadow. (Unfortunately, that means the Black Moon will be more or less invisible, even if the moon is high in the sky).

The lunar calendar almost lines up with Earth’s calendar year, so there is typically one full moon and one new moon each month. A second full moon in a single calendar month is sometimes called a “Blue Moon.” A Black Moon is supposedly the flip side of a Blue Moon: the second new moon in a single calendar month. The next Black Moon takes place on Sept. 30 (in the Western Hemisphere).

From the Western Hemisphere, the new moon occurring on Friday, Sept. 30, is a Black Moon. Officially, it occurs at 8:11 p.m. Eastern Time (5:11 p.m. Pacific Time).

For the Eastern Hemisphere (Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia), this new moon occurs after midnight on the calendar date of Oct. 1. So for this part of the world, this particular new moon is not the second one in the calendar month, but rather, the first! So it does not qualify as a Black Moon, and that hemisphere will have to wait until the end of the month for theirs. Indeed, for the billions living in the Eastern Hemisphere, the Black Moon will arrive on Oct. 30 or, if you live in eastern Asia, Japan, Australia or New Zealand, not until Oct. 31 (Halloween).

The Black Moon is a somewhat unusual celestial event — they occur about once every 32 months.

Slooh Community Observatory will host a webcast Monday, Oct. 3 at 3 p.m. EDT (1900 GMT) to show live views of the young moon, viewable on their website and also on Space.com. The webcast will feature discussion with special guests including Slooh’s spiritual correspondent Helen Avery, who will discuss the Black Moon’s significance to pagan religion, and there will also be a discussion of how to define the Black Moon when dealing with multiple time zones.

At its “new moon” phase, the moon is always black. It happens at that time of the month when the moon passes through the same part of the sky as the sun and as such, the moon’s dark or unilluminated side faces Earth. So there really is nothing to see.

Actually, that’s not always true, since there are times when the new moon passes directly between Earth and the sun and Earthlings can then see the moon’s black silhouette crossing in front of the sun, causing a solar eclipse. That, in fact, actually happened with this month’s first new moon, on Sept. 1, creating an annular eclipse (also known as a “Ring of Fire Eclipse”) over parts of Africa.

If you have ever wondered where the term “new moon” originated, it simply refers to the start of a new lunar cycle. The time frame from one new moon to the next is called a synodic month, which, on average, lasts 29.53 days. This is the period of the moon’s phases, because the moon’s appearance depends on the position of the moon with respect to the sun as seen from the Earth. The word “synodic” is derived from the Greek word sunodikos, which means “meeting,” for at new moon, the moon “meets” the sun.

But unlike a “supernoon” which gets countless numbers of people scurrying for vantage points to see a slightly larger and slightly brighter-than-average full moon, with a Black Moon, you simply can’t see it. In my opinion, this is the chief reason why Black Moon is going to have a tough time in becoming a popular media brand.

A couple of evenings later, however, on Oct. 2, you’ll be able to pick out a slender sliver of a waxing crescent moon low in the western twilight sky about 30 or 40 minutes after sunset local time. That will also mark the start of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year 5777. And the following day (Oct. 3) is the Islamic New Year 1438, on the first day of Muharram, the first month in the lunar Islamic calendar.

Some people mistakenly refer to the appearance of any thin lunar crescent as the “new moon.” This fallacy has even spread into popular literature. In his classic work “A Night to Remember,” about the sinking of the Titanic, author Walter Lord quotes a fireman in a lifeboat who caught sight of a narrow crescent low in the dawn sky and exclaimed, “A new moon!”

As one who has been involved in the broadcasting field for nearly 40 years, I’d like to point out that we live in a time when the news media is seemingly obsessed with “branding.” This marketing strategy involves creating a differentiated name and image — often using a tagline — in order to establish a presence in people’s mind. In recent years in the field of astronomy, for example, we’ve seen annular eclipses — those cases when the moon is too small to completely cover the disk of the sun — become branded as “Ring of Fire Eclipses.” A total eclipse of the moon — when the moon’s plunge through the Earth’s shadow causes the satellite to turn a coppery red color — is now referred to as a “Blood Moon.”

When a full moon is also passing through that part of its orbit that brings it closest to Earth — perigee — we now brand that circumstance as a supermoon. That term was actually conjured up by an astrologer back in 1979 but quite suddenly became a very popular media brand after an exceptionally close approach of a full moon to Earth in March 2011. It surprises me that even NASA now endorses the term, although it seems to me the astronomical community in general shies away from designating any perigee full moon as “super.”

Then there is Blue Moon. This moniker came about because a writer for Sky & Telescope Magazine misinterpreted an arcane definition given by a now-defunct New England Almanac for when a full moon is branded “blue,” and instead incorrectly reasoned that in a month with two full moons, the second is called a Blue Moon. That was a brand that quietly went unnoticed for some 40 years, until a syndicated radio show promoted the term in the 1980s and it then went viral. So now, even though the second full moon in a month is not the original definition for a Blue Moon, in popular culture we now automatically associate the second full moon in a calendar month with a Blue Moon.

So are you ready for yet another lunar brand? The newest one is Black Moon.

Instagram Update: Keep Calm and Don’t Turn On Notifications Because…

Changes to Instagram’s algorithm will present photos out of chronological order. But users should not rush to change their preferences just yet.

Forthcoming changes to Instagram’s algorithm, which will present photos out of chronological order, have thrown the photo-sharing app into chaos, with users asking their followers to “turn on notifications” so their updates aren’t lost to the new regime.

Don’t do it. For your sake. Not yet, anyway.

Turning on notifications for Rihanna, for example, means you’ll be told every time she posts a new photo. It is the equivalent of Rihanna texting you to tell you that she’s put a pic up on Instagram, but without the close relationship with Rihanna implicit in that scenario.

Sometimes Rihanna posts several images a day. You’d receive a text to let you know, every time. Annoying, right? Even in the case of Rihanna, arguably the only person worth following on Instagram.

Don’t turn on notifications. Your phone is already buzzing and bleeping and wishing you “a nice day” and asking if you’ve “been affected by the explosion” (?!) – you don’t need to be personally notified every time that person you don’t know posts a picture of a meal you didn’t order or a sunset you didn’t see or a coffee you really, really need right now because you just got told @badgalriri’s posted another photo to Instagram.

(To clarify: in accordance with her “dgaf” public persona, Rihanna has not asked her 36.1 million followers to turn on notifications (Ellie Goulding has).)

In short, don’t turn on notifications. And definitely don’t for everyone who asks you to. The only person you should turn on notifications for is your crush, and if you’re smart you’d have done that ages ago.

We don’t know the specifics of how Instagram’s timeline is changing. The spate of posts hashtagged #InstagramChangesover the past 24 hours seems to have been sparked by one unknown “influencer”, who spurred others to follow suit like lemmings off a cliff, panicked by a change confirmed by the platform on 15 March.

In its infinite wisdom, Instagram has decided that ordering posts from newest to oldest means you are probably missing out on “the posts you might care about the most”. It neglected to expand on what posts it thought you might care about the most but said “you may be surprised to learn that people miss on average 70% of their feeds”.

It signalled that photos and videos would “soon” be ordered “based on the likelihood you’ll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post”.

“If your favorite musician shares a video from last night’s concert, it will be waiting for you when you wake up, no matter how many accounts you follow or what time zone you live in. And when your best friend posts a photo of her new puppy , you won’t miss it.”

Instagram’s statement clarified that the change would affect the ordering of posts, not whether they appeared at all: “All the posts will still be there, just in a different order” – though it did preface that with “as we begin”, the obvious inference being that it’s only getting started.

Facebook, which bought the photo-sharing app for US $1bn in 2012, introduced a similar change to its news feed in 2014 – now there is no way to consistently view it in reverse chronological order. Its users complained then, too.

MTV, assumedly speaking on behalf of youth, complained that Instagram “used to be the great equalizer: The quality of your photos and your photos alone would either lead you to Insta-fame or cast you into the deep blue sea of Insta-nothingness. But, like Facebook, Instagram believes that robots hold the answer to our happiness.”

The timeframe Instagram gave for this “new experience” was “the coming months”.

“We’re going to take time to get this right and listen to your feedback along the way.”

An Instagram spokesman told Guardian Australia there were still “weeks, if not months, of testing” to go before the feature is rolled out beyond a small test group.

“We’ll certainly confirm things when the changes are made,” he said.

But going by users’ myriad pleas for notifications to be enabled on Monday, something must have spooked them. With the platform thrown into disarray, the company attempted to calm the community on Twitter.

It’s easy to see why the brands and personalities for whom Instagram is their primary platform are concerned – it’s a site of significant commerce, with individual influencers asking hundreds, even thousands of dollars to promote products on their pages, depending on their following.

Changes to the algorithm, such as that confirmed by the platform on 15 March, affect how many people they can guarantee their posts are reaching, which could affect how much money they can ask advertisers for.

Until the extent of the changes become apparent, for the majority of the platform’s 300m users, it’s another one of those irritating reminders that the places where we work, play, communicate and otherwise while away our time online are subject to the whims of teams working in “user experience”, which may or may not have our best interests at heart.

It’s annoying, yes – but it is almost certainly not as annoying as receiving notifications.

I’m Sorry, Folks. STOP ALREADY. If you are worried no one is going to see your posts and YOU deserve to be a “NOTIFICATION” in my account. YOU ARE DREAMING. You are cool. I think highly of your and your business. You are not so important that you deserve to notify me when you post on Instagram. IF YOU NEED HELP POSTING BETTER CONTENT, contact me, I’ll be your fearless advisor to help you through this transition in the landscape of social media change. (Yes, had to take this opportunity to promote myself. It’s good business) I follow the work of @jenns_trends to learn about using Instagram and Twitter… and other social media stuff. Here is a quote from here recent article and I agree: “So, before you go begging for people to get notifications on your account, let me reiterate the need to create BETTER content. If you really want to know how Instagram’s new algorithm is going to affect you, my recommendation is to up your game. Half-ass photos, boring captions, lack of a good hashtag strategy, and poor community building will crush you. Which it should. So, step up and give your audience what they deserve.” Please, think about what you are doing, asking for people to get notifications is easy for you and annoying for them. Have confidence and respect for your audience. Give them good content and from this you will do well. #mydarndest #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #marketing #jennstrends #LearnFromJenn #business #instagrammarketing #instagramsuccess #instagramtraining #instagramstrategy #instagramtips #instagramexpert #socialmediasuccess #smallbusiness #socialmediatips #entrepreneur #bestpractices #visualmarketing #instagramforbusiness #smm #smallbiz #instagramnews #instagramupdate #instagramupdates #onlinemarketing #Design #GraphicDesign #ROC #typography

We have however been advised that because of its unexpected popularity, availability is very limited and is now on a first come first serve basis.

EXPERTS ARE NOW CALLING SAFERWEB, “A GAME CHANGER FOR INTERNET USERS”

As part of the special promotion due to end July 15, 2016, a group of Engineers teamed up with innovative new software provider SaferWeb, to provide the latest ID Protection thats just gone viral.

If you have a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone connected to the internet, your activities could be monitored and private information collected when you’re Internet shopping or banking. Even just browsing online is a risk in 2016.

SaferWeb had a primary objective to eliminate this by boosting security and ensure eavesdroppers cannot make sense of your encrypted communications.

Technical Lead John McBride, from SaferWeb explains; Our main objective for creating the app was pretty simple. We wanted to help users protect their Identity & Internet Connection to eliminate the risk of any online, banking or personal information being stolen, monitored or hacked”

The company SaferWeb seemed to deliver on this objective perfectly. Using their technology will give a private tunnel between you and the internet that’s invisible to hackers or any malware, letting you browse the Internet anonymously and securely. Literally anyone can use it and it only takes 5 minutes to set up.

saferweb1

So how can SaferWeb give this away? Apparently this promotional tactic is common among big companies with large marketing budgets. For instance, Burger King launched a similar campaign in 2013, giving away 20,000 free whoppers on Facebook.”

One user we spoke to said, “I came across SaferWeb and decided to give it a go, it’s less than a cup of coffee anyways. I noticed the difference right away and  couldn’t be happier with results. I’ve always been anxious about who watches the sites I use and how safe my information really is and heard countless stories about people having their banking information hacked. This is the perfect solution to eliminate this.

The Oldest Man In The World: 256 Years Old Man Reveals SHOCKING Secrets To The World

What is the longest a person has ever lived for? Meet Li Ching Yuen, a man who lived an astonishing 256 years!  And no, this is not a myth or a fictional tale.

According to a 1930 New York Times article, Wu Chung-chieh, a professor of theChengdu University, discovered Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday,  and further documents later congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877. In 1928, a New York Times correspondent wrote that many of the old men in Li’s neighborhood asserted that their grandfathers knew him when they were boys, and that he at that time was a grown man.

Image result for The Oldest Man In The World: 256 Years Old Man Reveals SHOCKING Secrets To The World

Li Ching Yuen reportedly began his herbalist career at the age of 10, where he gathered herbs in mountain ranges and learned of their potency for longevity. For almost 40 years, he survived on a diet of herbs such as lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shoo wu and gotu kola and rice wine. In 1749, at the age of 71, he joined the Chinese armies as teacher of martial arts.  Li was said to be a much-loved figure in his community, marrying 23 times and fathering over 200 children.

According to the generally accepted tales told in his province, Li was able to read and write as a child, and by his tenth birthday had traveled in Kansu, Shansi, Tibet, Annam, Siam and Manchuria gathering herbs. For the first hundred years he continued at this occupation. Then he switched to selling herbs gathered by others. He sold lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola along with other Chinese herbs, and lived off a diet of these herbs and rice wine.

HE WASN’T THE ONLY ONE

According to one of Li’s disciples, he had once encountered an even older 500-year-old man, who taught him Qigong exercises and dietary recommendations that would help him extend his lifespan to superhuman proportions. Apart from Qigong and a herb-rich diet, what else can we learn from this Master of Longevity?

How about this: On his death bed, Li famously said, “I have done all that I have to do in this world”. Could his peaceful last words also hint at one of the biggest secrets to a long and prosperous life? It’s interesting to note that in the West, we’re often taught to believe that aging is something that must be “beaten” with high tech infrared devices and state of the art medication.

HIS SECRET TO LONG HEALTH:

Li was asked what his secret was to longevity. This was his reply: “Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.” These were the words of advice Li gave to Wu Pei-fu, the warlord, who took Li into his house to learn the secret of extremely long life.

Li maintained that inward calm and peace of mind combined with breathing techniques were the secrets to incredible longevity. Obviously, his diet would have played a large role. But its fascinating that the old living person in recorded history attributes his long life to his state of mind.

WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO BELIEVE?

With the average lifespan for the Western world currently sitting between 70-85 years, the thought of someone living over 100 years old seems like quite the stretch. The thought of someone living over 200 years old seems extremely suspicious. But why don’t we believe that people can live this long?

We have to keep in mind that some people in this world don’t live a grueling 9-5 lifestyle, they don’t have to deal with the stresses of debt, they aren’t breathing polluted city air, and they exercise regularly. They don’t eat refined sugars or flour, or any foods that have had pesticides sprayed on them. They aren’t living off of the standard American diet.

They aren’t eating fatty meats, sugary deserts, and genetically modified foods. No antibiotics. No alcohol and no tobacco. Their diets not only exclude junk foods that we so often indulge in, they also include superfoods and herbs which are like steroids for our organs and immune system.

They also spend their spare time in nature practicing breathing techniques and meditating which have been proven to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. They keep things simple, get proper sleep, and spend a great deal of time in nature under the sun. When we get a chance to relax in the sun, we feel instantly rejuvenated and call this a “vacation”. Imagine spending a lifetime doing that in the mountains, and combining that with perfect mental, spiritual, and physical well-being.

I do not doubt for a minute that if we all did the things we knew we were supposed to do, that living to be 100 years old would be commonplace. When we treat our bodies right, who knows how long we can live for?
