A powerful X-ray pulsar is whipping around its stellar partner at a record-breaking speed! These two stars orbit each other every 38 minutes, less than the amount of time it takes to stream an episode of your favorite tv sitcom. It’s the fastest-known orbit for this kind of binary star system, where a rapidly spinning, very dense star called a pulsar pulls material away from a lighter companion star. In this visualization you can see that the two stars in this system are closer to each other than Earth is to the Moon! Scientists were able to confirm the new record using our Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer aboard the International Space Station (@ISS).

After months of work, it’s nice to see, touch and smell our latest annual review for @heartresearchinstitute ... This year’s focus is on the second coming of CV disease. Look forward to sharing more spreads soon... and special mention to design lead on this project @libberace - amazing work.

Behold: see galaxies like never before! Astronomers have used the unparalleled sharpness & spectral range of the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble) to create the most comprehensive, high-resolution ultraviolet-light look at nearby star-forming galaxies.
The researchers combined new Hubble observations with archival Hubble images for 50 star-forming spiral and dwarf galaxies in the local universe, offering a large and extensive resource for understanding the complexities of star formation and galaxy evolution. The project, called the Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey (LEGUS), has amassed star catalogs for each of the LEGUS galaxies and cluster catalogs for 30 of the galaxies, as well as images of the galaxies themselves. The data provide detailed information on young, massive stars and star clusters, and how their environment affects their development.
Seen here is a look at one of the galaxies included in the LEGUS survey. It is a spiral galaxy located in the Canes Venatici constellation about 20 million light-years away from Earth.

⭐Vegemite on toast⭐ with scrambled eggs. That's what's been missing from your feed. Delicious! . .
Type 1 Monday is done for me! I even had time to go to do some groceries at Bankstown, and have lunch (see story). .
. . ❔Do you have type 1 diabetes, and in your early 20's find it really hard to lose that last layer of fat? You're not alone. . .
Did you know that insulin requirements increase in your late teen with puberty, but then fall again in your early 20's? Many people lose contact with their endo's at this time. This, in conjunction with having it drilled into you that your toes will fall off and you will go blind if your HbA1c is above 7% means that many people run their numbers low, and eat to avoid hypoglycaemia. I usually meet them in their late 20's, many very afraid of hypos, because they happen all the time if a meal or snack is skipped. . .
In addition, without realising it, the higher insulin doses from puberty cause weight gain in early adulthood. . .
. 👉When insulin doses are appropriately reduced, weight loss naturally occurs. Check in with an endocrinologist who can help with this. Typically you need about 20% less insulin in early adulthood (although it can vary a lot). . .
Hypos are not your friend, but more on that another time. . .
Any questions? Ask me below👇. . Stay tuned for more medicine and science facts. .. .
. . 📸Recipe: spread butter and vegemite on hot toast. Serve with 1 egg and 2 egg-white scrambled eggs (I had whites left from the apple tart). Enjoy the simple things in life 😊. . .
Happy Monday! 🙌🙌🙌. . .

Gonna start posting informative shizzz so here’s one for those of you with children #Repost@curiositydotcom
Rosemary is a perennial herb with fragrant, needle-like leaves. It's great for flavoring foods like meats and potatoes—oh, and also—boosting your child's memory. Yep, science is here to feed your aromatherapy obsession. The next time you're browsing essential oils, perhaps you should consider stocking up on a brain powering rosemary scent. Light up your rosemary scented candles! In May 2017, British researchers from Northumbria University presented research giving this aromatic herb a good name. According to co-author Dr. Mark Moss, they initially found that "the aroma of rosemary essential oil could enhance cognition in healthy adults." Now, as ScienceDaily reports, they've discovered similar effects on the working memories of school age children. Here's why this is huge: poor working memory is related to poor academic performance. #rosemary#herb#aroma#aromatherapy#scent#memory#brain#science#curiosity#cannabis#cannabiscommunity#dabs #710 #420 #weed

How god damn sexy are these bad boys!! 🔥🔥 One of our favourite tools. If you haven’t done our critically acclaimed #kettlebell class you’re of lg your head! Speaking of head...head to mindbody online to book in 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Friday 10 students lost their lives, 13 were injured in a shooting at Santa Fe High School. The assailant said he intended to kill himself, but did not have the courage to take his own life. Does that sound like the sentiments of a monster? Maybe like so many lost kids, he really needed love, and somebody to reach out and say, "Hey. You're not alone. You are beautiful for who you are." and fucking mean it.
How long until we stop treating the symptom, and reach out to those internally hurting?
To aid the families who are suffering from this horrible loss, all revenue made at the shows next week will go directly to charities that support them. No percentage. All.
Compassion. There is another way.

Conventional means can hold the groundwork, teach us, inform us of a method well tested, but it's the experimental leaps that lead to new places, to build us, to uncover something more. 📸 @gretchenandrew
Thanks for hop/skip/a'jumpin' round the shows this week.
