As you can imagine, I was as surprised to write that headline as you were to read it. Fudge from Uranus. Catchy, eh? But (pun totally intended) all jokes aside, it is a very real thing from a very real place right here in the mighty midwest. I first discovered...
When Students Grade the Teacher – Excerpt from Uranus is Always Funny: Short Essays to Make You Laugh
Uranus is Always Funny: Short Essays to Make You Laugh by Bill Spencer, we laughed aloud so I guess that means the title lived up to the material. Seriously, HOPress was so proud and excited to publish this book and if you haven’t read it yet, you are missing out. Now, more than ever we need these doses of humor. So for a special treat, we are excerpting his book here. This essay goes out to all the teachers and professors out there. Enjoy!
Inspired by the legendary Tomita, the Lo-Fi Orchestra presents Uranus from Gustav Holst’s Planets Suite. This is using the same Lo-Fi Orchestra setup as Jupiter. You can listen out for the MT32-Pi on timpani once again, the Adafruit Feather on xylophone, and heavy use of the PWM and FM Mozzi, and R2R synthesis engines.

Every month or so, the Moon seems to disappear from the night sky. New moons occur when the Moon is situated between the Sun and Earth. During this time of the lunar cycle, the shadow side of the Moon faces us, rendering it invisible down on Earth (except during lunar eclipses, like last month's).
Title: Did Uranus’ regular moons form via a rocky giant impactor?. Authors: Jason Man Yin Woo, Christian Reinhardt, Marco Cilibrasi, Alice Chau, Ravit Helled, Joachim Stadel. First author’s institution: Institute for Computational Science, University of Zürich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland. Journal: Submitted to Icarus; pre-print available on the Arxiv.
Home and family are huge themes for the upcoming New Moon in Cancer on July 9. This emo new moon guarantees to have you all up in your feels, pushing you to allow said feelings to guide you instead of control you. The question is, are you ready to start anew on uncharted paths?
This suggestive photo was taken by the Cassini space probe on April 11, 2014, from its orbit around the planet Saturn. Although the image is dominated by a sector of Saturn’s rings, what is truly unique is the bluish dot at the top left. That dot is the planet Uranus. When the spacecraft photographed Uranus, it was on the other side of the Sun, about 2.5 billion kilometers from Cassini and Saturn, almost at its farthest point in its orbit from Saturn. When both worlds reach the maximum proximity of each other they are separated by about 1,500 million kilometers. Cassini never traveled to Uranus, but somehow, with this photo, it symbolically visited it on April 11, 2014. (Source: NCYT from Amazings)
WEEK OF July 5 – 1 1, 2021. Associates, household—even random strangers—will fortunately dole out relationship recommendation, Sagittarius. Simply ask them. Or perhaps…don’t! Not solely will the cacophony confuse you, nevertheless it’s certain to go away you feeling judged. Break away from the validation lure this Thursday, July 8, when erratic Uranus in your moralistic sixth home sideswipes love planet Leo in your broad-minded ninth. And don’t let anybody stress you into making a choice!
July will be a big month with lots of opportunities to be productive and also to have fun. This month no longer has Mercury retrograde—that ended June 22. July has no eclipses or angry new or full moons. In short, things should hum along for you, and you will likely be pleased with how things go in your professional and personal life.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom. ~ Anais Nin. The over-riding transit for 2021 has been this ubiquitous Saturn/Uranus square. We see it in our ever-divided society. But we also see it in an ever-evolving social conscience, and in these progressive scientific and technological innovations. But this Saturn/Uranus square has also managed to insinuate itself into our personal lives this year. This is where many have been feeling conflict between staying with what we know and are familiar with, vs. taking the risk to venture forth into the world of the new and untrodden. This is where we feel that we are forced to accommodate to changes over which we have no control. This is where we feel as if we are not growing and stagnating where we are, but are not sure what we need to change in order to further grow and evolve.
