Yes! November 14th, 2020!
You probably heard of Alex Trebek the longstanding host of the T.V. show Jeopardy! (one of my favorite shows). He will be missed.
But who was Viola Smith? “The Fastest Girl Drummer”? She was 107 and still occasionally sat in with local jazz groups into her 100’s!
Check this out…
Wow! A basically drop in Tesla drive train for a normal V8 car.
What about the Dragon?

Kraftwerk started electronic pop/rock music. They should be in the Rock Hall.
NASA has finally given Space X clearance to launch the Dragon 2 with a crew! On May 27th astronauts, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will be the first to ride a Space X rocket. This is not to be missed!!!
Because why not?
Rodrigo y Gabriela, wow, so much to say. If you like guitar, then you should hear them.
I’ve played this a few times before class. Strange group. A loose art collective from Minneapolis. Great groove, very Buddhist lyrics.
One of the creepiest songs. A classic rap song from the 1990’s. Great images.
I love this version. It was done for the BBC on the anniversary of this 1980’s electronic dance song. It only uses instruments that would have been available in the 1930’s….
Wow! Still going strong.
Hubble telescope delivers stunning 30th birthday picture
Well this may be good news.
One of my favorite songwriters in in intensive care right now fighting for his life from COVID-19. He has survived cancer twice. I just thought you should know of him.
Update: John Prine passed today.
I still cannot fathom why people are stockpiling toilet paper for a respiratory illness. Anyway, if you were thinking of using tissues, that may not be wise, as this strange (but informative) Youtube video shows…
Now this will be cool if it works out. I haven’t seen a comet with the naked eye since 1997!
The Hubble telescope has been amazing. I can not wait.
Oh yeah, speaking of Hubble…
Google Classroom has been set up for all sections that Mr. Boch teaches. An invitation to join your respective class has been sent to your school email. Below are the class codes in case that did not work.
EPS 1st period – utl55vb
EPS 2nd period – s2v5ptl
Dynamic Earth (all sections) – 6cchwk3
– You are required to complete all assigned work by the Friday of the first week we return. But it can be turned in through Google classroom whenever you finish. I’d get it done and not have a pile of work when you return if I were you.
– I will post assignments for each week by Monday afternoon and check both the classroom and my school email at least twice daily during the weekdays.
– EPS– Please make sure to send me your Google Slide presentation of you quarter projects so I can complete grades for this quarter.
Best of luck! Remember: social distance and wash your hands!
5G may be great, but I don’t think I want these guys building the U.S. network…
First the good news…
Now the bad…
Bird Flu is not as contagious as coronavirus, but much more lethal.
BTW, you may have noticed I post links to Yahoo news a lot. It’s still one of my first stops when browsing the news. Mostly because it links to so many reputable news sources. (Although, a few not so reputable ones as well. Just not as many as other sites.)
Wow. I am speechless. I saw him in concert twice. Amazing.
The band Rush always loved Cleveland and credited us with starting their career.
One more, from the old days…
I’ve mentioned that e cigarettes have really never been properly tested on humans. Just sayin’
A great video putting together a lot of research with some intelligent speculation.
