Quotes

...greater long-term myopic shift after ICL implantation, although the great majority of the variance remained unexplained," the authors concluded. "We should take both patient age and axial length into consideration for predicting the long-term refractive outcomes of this surgical procedure."
Joe Rao, skywatching columnist for www.space.com , explains how the moon is visible in first place when it has been totally eclipsed, writing, "...sunlight is scattered and refracted around the edgeedge of Earth by the planet's atmosphere. To an astronaut standing on the moon during totality, the sun would be hidden behind a dark earth outlined by a brilliant red ring consisting of all the world's sunrises and sunsets. The brightness of this ring around Earth depends on global weather conditions and the amount of dust suspended in the air. A clear atmosphere on Earth means a bright lunar eclipse. If a major volcanic eruption has injected particles into the stratosphere, the eclipse is very dark."
"My boss won't let me make espressos," says the barista. "I need a year more, maybe two, before he's ready to let customers drink my shots undiluted by milk. And I'll need another whole year of practice after that if I want to be able to froth milk for cappuccinos."
"It gets the red colour because the sunlight going through the earth's atmosphere refracts [bends] into the earth's shadow president of the Newcastle Astronomical Society David Hough said."
