Scientists working with data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/ submillimeter Array (ALMA) have come across the most massive stellar embryo ever discovered in the Milky

Way. It’s a real monster of a baby star, growing in a cosmic womb 500 times the mass of our own Sun.

The unbelievable part is that it’s still growing, sucking up material in its environment with its powerful gravity and adding to a blooming protostellar core that may eventually form several newborn stars.

This core is found 11,000 light years away in a region of space known as the Spitzer Dark Cloud or SDC. It’s shrouded by dense dust and gas, so has been difficult to observe with much accuracy until a Cardiff-based team led by French scientist Nicolas

NEW-LOOK SmugMug GOES LARGE

Picture this. The young CEO of one of the coolest companies on the planet hops on stage at SmugMug HQ, San Francisco sporting blue jeans; baseball cap (but not reversed); strident green trainers and a Superman T-shirt.

He announces ‘the dawn of a brand new era’ to an expectant crowd of specially selected customers, world-famous photographers; a glut of assembled media — and live to the world at large (courtesy Ustream.tv) — and receives a rapturous standing ovation even before he can finish his address.

You’d be forgiven for thinking it might be the Second Coming. It wasn’t. It was

Master SOFT LIGHT

Any discussion of soft lighting tools begins with two classic modifiers: the softbox and the umbrella. From each of these devices has sprung a world of variations—so many that it can be difficult to know why to choose one modifier over another. Soft is a relative term, after all, and the little differences between modifiers produce subtle, but important, changes in the quality of light.

Softbox

The softbox might be the most popular studio light modifier, and for good reason. Photographers tend to think of it as portable on-demand window light. The most important effect a softbox has on a

Ivankovskoe reservoir has long been one of the popular places for fishing competitions at various levels. The reason is simple: First, it is located relatively close to Moscow — the intersection of the main routes of the modern land and air transport, and secondly, even when a relative proximity to the capital of the local nature is not experiencing such a powerful anthropogenic impact as other reservoirs near Moscow. In this case the role played and the consent of the hotel complex «Konakovo River Club» to take their possessions in a large group of anglers, who were to find

AFTER HUNTING FOR A LONG TIME, I HAVE FINALLY BOUGHT MY DREAM HOME. I ALWAYS WANTED A HOME WITH LARGE BEDROOMS, BUT MOST OF ALL A VERY LARGE MASTER BEDROOM, WHERE I COULD READ AND ENJOY LEISURE TIME. HOWEVER, NOW THAT WE HAVE THE HOME OF OUR DREAMS, I AM LOST AS TO HOW TO FILL SPACE HERE, AND HOW TO DESIGN IT TO THE BEST UTILITY POSSIBLE AS I AM AGAINST WASTING SPACE. HOWEVER, I DO NOT WANT TO GIVE IT AN OVERFULL OR EVEN AN UNDER UTILISED LOOK. PLEASE ADVISE.

I shall enjoy answering this, as my favourite space to design in a home is the master bedroom. This is because, we tend to spend most of our time at home here when sleeping, lounging, or unwell. It is also viewed with a very narrow approach, which is why I so enjoy breaking the mould. We need to change the way we look at a bedroom. A bedroom cannot be looked at as a one bed. side table room to sleep at night alone. It needs to act as a lounge, an area where one can unwind: read; watch television;
