This past Thursday was the vernal equinox, but Pittsburgh hit the 12 hours between sunrise and sunset mark last Monday. We're gaining daylight at the fastest rate we'll experience all year: two minutes and 41 seconds more each day until March 27, when things start slowing down. On June 21, there will 15 hours, three minutes and 48 seconds between sunrise and sunset, and the days start getting shorter. Sunrise/sunset isn't the best gauge of day length, though, since we have twilight before the sun rises and after it sets. Morning "civil" twilight (there's also nautical and astronomical twilight) begins at civil dawn, when the center of the sun is 6° below the horizon. It ends at sunrise. Evening civil twilight begins at sunset and ends at civil dusk, when the center of the sun is 6° below the horizon. (Twilight's the period when the street lights go on and off.) So if the day seems longer than 12 hours, it is, by a full hour.

From a friend who follows everything:

Well, it's been a strange couple of weeks here on planet Earth. First, a modern, well equipped Boeing 777 passenger jet disappeared without a trace into apparently about a third of the planet leaving experts from 26 nations scratching their collective heads in confusion and concern. Then the situation the Ukraine, Crimea and Russia flared up into ever more distressing situations, many of which were deliberately instigated by our leaders here in the U.S. and many of those in the EU ever since the fall of the Soviet Union. And now there is some indication that our munificent (at least to themselves) corporate leaders are dumping their equity interests while the bubbling stock market is still frothing with foam. Just when one begins to think that the time couldn't get much more interesting, it does. It's looking more and more as if this could be a very hot summer indeed. Israel is continuing being Israel- taunting the U.S. and Europe. China and Japan are within a trivial insult of outright war and North Korea keeps doing everything it can- and then some- to attract world attention. This is on top of the continuing chaos in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. India is in its usual state of political chaos and Turkey is about to come apart at the seams. And this doesn't even touch on the newest hot-spots in Africa. All the while the economic security in the U.S. and the EU continues to be eroded by unnecessary and unwarranted neoliberal austerity plans which are doomed to fail and which will insure that inequality of wealth will escalate still further before collapsing in on itself. All in all, what a fascinating time to be alive!

To paraphrase Tom Leher, I'm beginning to feel like a Christian Scientist with appendicitis...

Big quake. We stood in the doorway, so we could be hit by things from two rooms.
