So as you folks may know, I've been seriously coming down relatively hard on Minds for reneging on their pledge to boycott Google, by putting their mobile app for Android back on the playstore. This is a HUGE deal because it directly corresponds to the NSFW and censorship crud thats been going down the past couple of weeks or so. The Minds app for Android on the playstore BLOCKS all E-tagged channels and content, and removes the option of each Minds user to choose whether to see said content or otherwise. However, you do have the option to download and install the uncensored app directly from Minds. I WANT you to read the pledge Minds made, and tell me I'm wrong. Effectually, Minds has given Google license to censor Minds users. This is NOT what Minds is all about. Minds is about freedom, and freedom comes in this situation with a small price. Minds should remove the app from the playstore, and create an educational video teaching people that need help installing the app outside of the playstore. Please people, show Minds that you care about this, and that it's important to you; that you're willing to deal with the app on the Minds repo and don't want to support Google and their insidious business tactics per the Minds official statement in their boycott of Google. They think you don't care, and I'm only speaking for myself. Please people...remind this. Its the only way we have a chance of changing their minds. https://www.minds.com/media/984529410348032000 ..................................................................................................................................................................... #mindsusergroup #mug #mcosi #asthebulbdims #news

Astronomers, for the first time, have snapped an image of a cool, gassy ring swirling around the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. This ring is part of the so-called accretion disk (stars, dust and gases) that surround most black holes. These materials are held close by the black hole's strong gravitational grip and the far edge represents the outer limits of its gravitational reach. In the case of the Milky Way's black hole called Sagittarius A*, the disk extends out a few tenths of a light-year from the black hole's event horizon; the point at which even light can't escape the black hole's grasp. The cool hydrogen ring is about a hundredth of a light-year away from the black hole's event horizon, and contains an amount of hydrogen equivalent to a tenth of the mass of Jupiter. What's more, because of the so-called "Doppler effect," which makes light from objects moving toward our planet look slightly "bluer" and light from objects moving away from our planet look slightly "redder, the gas is rotating around the black hole. https://www.livescience.com/65666-faint-hydrogen-cloud-milky-way-black-hole.html ............................................................................................................................................................. #space #science #astronomy #nature #education

Thunderstorms characterized by deep, persistent, rotating updrafts, are called supercells, or rotating thunderstorms. Supercells can occur anywhere in the world, but they are most common in the Great Plains of the United States in an area known as Tornado Alley and in the Tornado Corridor of Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil; and are classified by 3 distinct types: Classic, Low-precipitation, and High-precipitation. An example of how destructive supercells can actually be is well illustrated by the massive tornado outbreak on May 3, 1999 which spawned an F5 tornado in the area of Oklahoma City that had the highest recorded winds on Earth. This outbreak spawned over 66 tornadoes in Oklahoma alone. On this day throughout the area of Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas, over 141 tornadoes were produced. This outbreak resulted in 50 fatalities and 895 injuries. ................................................................................................................................................................... #science #nature #education #gifs #luculentgif
