Halley Comet (Science is Awesome)

image

Halley’s Comet or Comet Halley officially designated 1P/Halley, is ashort-period comet visible from Earth every 75–76 years. Halley is the only known short-period comet that is clearly visible to the naked eye from Earth, and the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime. Halley last appeared in the inner Solar System in 1986 and will next appear in mid-2061.

Halley’s returns to the inner Solar System have been observed and recorded byastronomers since at least 240 BC. Clear records of the comet’s appearances were made by ChineseBabylonian, and medieval European chroniclers, but were not recognized as reappearances of the same object at the time. The comet’s periodicity was first determined in 1705 by Englishastronomer Edmond Halley, after whom it is now named.

approved_seville_marmalade_crepe_suzette_1_misc_large

For the sauce, place lemon and orange zest in a small saucepan and cover with two cups (500 millilitre) water. Bring to the boil over medium heat. Drain and cool zest under cold running water. Repeat twice, then drain the zest well and set aside. Place lemon and orange juice in a saucepan, bring to the boil over medium heat and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes or until the liquid is reduced to 1 ¼ cups (310 millilitres).

Dissolve cornflour in one tablespoon cold water and whisk into the hot liquid until smooth. Whisk in sugar, and cook for 3 – 4 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in butter. Set aside and keep the sauce warm. (Final yield for sauce is one cup)

To make the crepes, place two tablespoons butter in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, swirling the pan, until the butter melts and turns a deep golden brown.

Remove pan from heat and spoon off the white foam from the surface, so you are left with a clear browned butter. Set aside.

Place flour, sugar and yolks in a large bowl and whisk until just combined. Whisk in browned butter and milk, until combined. Pour batter into a jug, cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Heat a non stick 20 centimetre crepe pan over medium high heat. In a separate pan, melt remaining 20 grams butter. Using a pastry brush, coat crepe pan with melted butter. Gently stir batter, then pour two tablespoons batter into the pan, swirling to coat the base. Cook for 1 – 2 minutes until golden, then flip. Cook for a further 20 seconds, then transfer to a baking paper lined plate. Repeat, brushing with more butter, until you have eight crepes. Set aside to cool.

Serve with marscapone and Seville Suzette sauce.

Cinco-De-Mayo-Drinks-5-460x335

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla. Mexican Americans also often see the day as a source of pride; one way they can honor their ethnicity is to celebrate this day.

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.

Orange juice is the amazing drink for the patients of high or low blood pressure. Are you interested in finding the reason? Well, this delicious drink contains a significant amount of magnesium, which has a wonderful ability to bring back the disturbed blood pressure level to normal range.

  1. Promotes the Immune System:

Due to the presence of vitamin C, orange juice acts as a best defender for you against several diseases (such as flu or colds), promoting the immune system.

  1. Contains Healing Properties:

One of the top health benefits of orange juice is its healing properties. Oranges contain flavonoids (like naringenin and hesperidin), which are anti-inflammatory stuffs. When you consume this yummy fruit in raw or juice form, the flavonoids work amazingly to treat the arthritis and heal the stiffness and pain.

  1. Prevents Cancer:

The latest scientific research has exposed the effectiveness of the orange juice for preventing several types of cancer.  Oranges comprise a stuff known as D – limonene that is an efficient agent against skin cancer, breast cancer, mouth cancer, colon cancer and lung cancer. Furthermore, the presence of vitamin C also helps in this regard.

  1. Benefits for Treating & Preventing Ulcers:

Ulcers generally appear in the small intestine and stomach. The occurrence of ulcers sometimes becomes a major reason of constipation because in this case, the consumed food particles can’t break down properly. The orange juice is very advantageous in treating and preventing ulcers. It also stimulates the digestive system.

  1. Prevents Kidney Stones:

The risks of formation of kidney stones can be reduced by taking one serving of orange juice on regular basis. Too much concentration of minerals and chemicals usually result as the development of kidney stones. Orange juice contains citrate, which has an excellent ability to prevent this disorder by decreasing the urine acidity. So the individuals, who are suffering through this terrible condition, should include fresh orange juice in daily diet plan.

  1. Assists in Weight Loss:

Many people believe that the regular consumption of orange juice is helpful for cutting down the extra pounds, claiming that this citrus fruit is full of antioxidants, which act efficiently to lose weight.

  1. Reduces Risks of Heart Attacks:

Another leading benefit of orange juice is its assistance in prevention of heart disorders. Hesperidin is a plant based substance that protects the arteries from being clogged by improving the health of nearby cells. Oranges contain hesperidin in sufficient amount, thus consumption of one glass freshly squeezed orange juice ensures lower risks of heart attacks.

  1. Treats Anaemia:

Anaemia is a condition that generally occurs due to insufficient red blood cells in hemoglobin. Iron deficiency is the leading reason behind this situation. Orange juice provides a good quantity of vitamin C that promotes the absorption of iron into blood stream. That’s why most doctors suggest the anaemia patients to consume orange or its juice on regular basis.

  1. Makes the Skin beautiful & Young Looking:

The antioxidant properties of orange juice make the skin fresh, beautiful and young-looking by preventing the aging effects. In addition, the antioxidants with the combination of vitamin C protect the skin cells from getting effected by free radicals. Thus, taking one serving of orange juice each day is a best way to maintain the freshness and attraction of skin for long time. Orange juice for skin is a blessing with no disguise at all!

Nutritional Value of Orange Juice:

Fresh orange juice is a great source of beneficial nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, flavonoids and phyto nutrients. These all nutrients play a significant role in maintaining healthy body. Consumption of vitamin C is essential to protect the body cells from free radicals. A satisfactory amount of this crucial vitamin can be provided to the body by taking orange juice. The presence of manganese, potassium, iron, chlorine, zinc, folic acid, sodium, phosphorus and pectin makes it more valuable. And most importantly the calories in orange juice are zero.

Poetry Mondays – The Wait by Richard Brautigan

Anne-Vallayer-Coster_Bouquet-of-Flowers-in-a-Blue-Porcelain-Vasecomp

It seemed

like years

before

I picked

a bouquet

of kisses

off her mouth

and put them

into a dawn-colored vase

in

my

heart. 

But

the wait

was worth it.

Because

I

was

in love.
