Snippy over Trump-Biden, California voters unload in hair salons, barbershops

Barbershops and beauty salons have always been about more than the shave and a haircut, or the mani-pedi. They’ve often been a refuge from the stresses and divisions of the outside world, a place to settle into a swivel chair and exhale. After all, you can’t really doom-scroll during a French manicure. But just as California salons are finally reopening after a punishing pandemic lockdown, the race between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is coming down to its final week — and...

How do we measure the distance to a galaxy and why is it so important?

On March 3, 1912, Henrietta Swan Leavitt made a short contribution to the Harvard College Observatory Circular. With it she laid the foundations of modern Astronomy. Locked in solitude due to her deafness, Leavitt was the first person to discover how to measure distance to galaxies, thus expanding our understanding of the Universe in one giant leap.Leavitt discovered that the period of oscillation of Cepheid stars, a type of variable stars, is related to their intrinsic brightness. Brighter Ceph...

Henrietta Swan Leavitt

In the 1920s, Edwin Hubble confirmed that there are galaxies of stars far beyond the Milky Way, vastly expanding the size of the known universe. Later, he also discovered that the universe itself is expanding. Those discoveries were made possible by another discovery a few years earlier. Henrietta Swan Leavitt found that a certain type of star makes a perfect “yardstick” for measuring astronomical distances. Leavitt was born 150 years ago today. She earned a college degree, although little of he...

Twitter troll David Leavitt offers up a master class in how to be an asshole

The dust hadn’t even settled in the concert venue before David Leavitt’s first ill-advised joke. After an explosion killed 22 people, including children, and wounded 59 others at a Manchester, England arena, Leavitt didn’t hesitate. Being first matters, even in tragedy, and especially on Twitter. With a click of the send button, the tweet landed, with a thud, to the disbelief of nearly all who saw it. But Leavitt, a freelance writer with bylines at “CBS, AXS, Yahoo, Examiner, etc.” was oblivious...
