GAAC Holiday Party Friday 12/9

December 7, 2016 ~ Michael Deneen ~

blogpic_orig

At our annual Gloucester Area Astronomy Club Holiday Party, Friday December 9, 8:00 pm at the Lanesville Community Center, we’re lucky enough to have Dr. Mario Motta with a presentation on his latest astronomy science project, an investigation of a white dwarf star (WD 1145+017) in Virgo that is orbited by the remains of a disintegrating small planet or asteroid.

The star seems to be tearing apart a small planet, leaving multiple small planetesimals and cometary trails in its wake. The story of the destruction of an actual planet is going to lead to a really interesting evening.

Mario’s been following and charting the disintegration, and is going to share his process and results with us on the 9th. It’s always fun to hear speakers who can report first-hand on actual astronomical events, and our December 2016 holiday party will be one of those rare nights.

Join us!

The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets on the second Friday of the month at 8:00pm at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan Street, Lanesville. There are no dues or fees, and all are welcome. Find out more about GAAC at http://gaac.us, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/GAACpage, or on Twitter, @GAACster.

It’s The Holiday Season-You Need batteries- Be Smart

image

If you’re like my former self you’d wait til Christmas Eve to figure out that you’ve got a buttload of toys for your kids that require batteries and you’d run to CVS or Stop and Shop and get crucified on the price of batteries.  I’ve tried the rechargeable route but inevitably the kids toss them out and you have to have the charger plugged in and you can never find them when you need them.

But no longer.  Because with a little bit of research you see these AC Delco batteries are the best value by a mile.

From a research chart you see that the AC Delcos crushed the competition in value.

Here’s the links to purchase them on Amazon-

Buy 48 AAA on Amazon for just $9.50 

Also 100 AA on amazon for $17.79

December 6, 2016 ~ chasnaz ~

PERFORMERSMusicians of the Old Post Road is one of the Boston area’s best-loved chamber ensembles specializing in the period instrument performance of dynamic and diverse music from the Baroque to early Romantic eras. Its repertoire includes compelling “rediscovered” works that have been lost to audiences for centuries.  Their theme this year is Musical Migrations.  ‘Christmas in the New World’ features classical holiday music with a distinctive Latin American flair.post-road-cover

Founded by Artistic Directors Suzanne Stumpf (flute) and Daniel Ryan (cello), the ensemble takes its name from its acclaimed concert series, originally entitled Old Post Road Historic Concerts, begun in 1989. They are joined by Sarah Darling (violin & viola), Marcia Cassidy (viola) and Michael Bahmann, (harpsichord). The venues trace the route of the old Boston Post Road, the first thoroughfare connecting Boston and New York City beginning in the 1670s.

WHAT’S SPECIAL? This is a rare opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with a unique program abounding with festive music exported to 18th-century Central and South America! Selections include lively Spanish villancicos, ornate Italian cantatas, and rhythmically-playful works with indigenous influences. Castellanos, Durán, Jerusalem, Pacheco, and Torres are among the featured composers.
With special guests Jessica Petrus, soprano, and Catherine Hedberg, mezzo-soprano, and special guest Eloy Cruz (Mexico), Baroque guitar

WHEN:  Friday, December 16, 2016 at 7:30pm

The Best Value In Chef’s Knives Is Just $28 Today (normally $54)

We got one of these last year and the aggravating thing about it is that after using it, it makes you feel like an absolute jerk for ever buying a $100 Henkels fancy chefs knife.  The Victorinox 8 Inch Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife is still razor sharp after using it nearly every single day and it just feels great in the hand.  It wins awards every year as Gizmodo’s readers choice award for favorite chef’s knife.  No-brainer city.

Bouchard fundraiser for Children’s Hospital

Griffin Rick Middleton

My son Griffin started a fundraising campaign three years ago to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital as a way to give back for the exceptional care he received there during two successful surgeries. What began as a school project has grown into a personal mission to increase his fundraising goal each year for this worthy charity. He raised $1,700.00 in 2014, $6,000 in 2015 and is hoping to raise $10,000 in 2016/17. For the past two years he has partnered with the Boston Bruins Foundation and the Corey C. Griffin NHL Pro-Am Alumni Tournament, specifically to benefit the Boston Children’s Hospital Pediatric Head Trauma Unit for concussion prevention and detection research.

Please consider donating via the following link:

https://secure.e2rm.com/ registrant/FundraisingPage. aspx?registrationID=3642396& langPref=en-CA&Referrer=http% 3a%2f%2fnhlalumniproam.com%2f# &panel1-1

In addition to web donations, Griffin will be hosting his third annual charity holiday skate on December 21st from 6pm until 7:30 pm at Pingree Rink in Hamilton, MA.  Rick Middleton will once again be his guest of honor. There will be food and raffle prizes, including a signed Bruins jersey and hockey stick autographed by the whole team. 

Some more information about Griffin’s fundraising activities can be found at the following links to WickedLocal and USA Hockey magazine

Boston Children’s Hospital is ranked #1 on U.S. News and World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals honor roll. More than offering great care, the hospital is known for its commitment to the Boston community—serving as the largest provider of health care to low-income children in our state. The hospital is also home to the world’s largest research center at a pediatric hospital, making discoveries that benefit both children and adults. Just one area of research we’re leading: concussions and injury prevention. Children’s Sports Concussion Clinic is a national leader in understanding and treating pediatric concussions, with a multidisciplinary research team and a clinical setting that receives more than 350 patient visits each month. Philanthropic support will advance critical research into this skyrocketing problem.

Thanks,

Andre Bouchard

So Rick Doucette Turned Me On To This App On the GloucesterCast “BevRAGE” – Unless you hate money

So if you go out and have a beer or buy any booze, you literally snap a picture of the receipt and they put money into your account.   Real spendable money.  Like I already got $2.  Just Stupid!

Get cash back with the bevRAGE app when you buy beer, wine and liquor. https://www.bevrage.com/promo/ZISONCDP

I’m all in.  If I’m going to Stones or the Brew pub or Minglewood, why wouldn’t I use this?  It’s just like the free rewards card from the Serenitee group where they just pound free stuff onto your account and if you don’t take advantage of it, it’s like pissing money out the window, or the Mass Save home energy audits where they come and replace all your brutally inefficient light bulbs for free and insulate your house and replace all your old temperature controls in your house for nothing.  Don’t take advantage of it while others reap all the rewards. Or going solar with Cazeault Solar where the credits pay for your system and all the energy saving goes or stays right in your pocket!   I’m here to highlight those no-brainer opportunities.  This is one.  Get on it!  Here’s the link to get BevRage on your smart phone.
