Skywatchers will get a special treat Tuesday when the biggest, brightest supermoon of 2019 lights up the night sky.

This will be the second in this year’s trio of back-to-back supermoons. The first occurred Jan. 21, and the third will fall on March 21.

A supermoon is a full moon that occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its monthly elliptical orbit around our planet. Since they’re a bit closer to us, supermoons appear larger and more luminous than ordinary full moons — though scientists are quick to point out that the difference is generally so subtle as to be imperceptible.

This Black History Month, We Reclaim Our Narrative

Leave a comment

February is Black History Month. It has become the month the nation recognizes as a time to celebrate the strides and achievements black people have accomplished over the centuries. But — contrary to founder Carter G. Woodson’s intention — it has become the relegated timeframe to squeeze in as much information about a select few civil rights leaders while whitewashing their stories.

This year, we challenge that. HuffPost is celebrating Black History Month by highlighting our culture, narratives and wholeness with the theme Black History Built This.

Monthlong, we will challenge the revisionist history many have been taught about the role of blackness in this country by shining a light on the historical figures and events pertinent to accurately telling America’s history. More often than not, black people’s accomplishments and contributions to this country are understated or ignored completely. We are seldom given proper credit, let alone praise, for how our rich history and culture has not only influenced, but helped construct the basis for what we view as progress today.

Living plastic-free: One activist fights a rising tide of pollution

Dianna Cohen is on alert. From the newspaper on her front stoop each morning, to the clothes she will pick up at the dry cleaner, to the lunch she’ll eat, to the shelves at her seemingly eco-friendly health food store — Cohen’s nemesis appears everywhere.

The world seems to be wrapped in plastic — and Cohen is not buying it. She is fighting to lead a life free of plastics, and to get others to do the same.

The Los Angeles native has taken her campaign against plastic waste — an annoyance of her youth and later the medium of her work as a visual artist — and made it her life’s cause.

Patagonia Wildlife

Patagonia (Spanish pronunciation: [pataˈɣonja]) is a sparsely populated region at the southern end of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. The region comprises the southern section of the Andes mountains and the deserts, pampas and grasslands to the east. Patagonia is one of the few regions with coasts on three oceans, with the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Southern Ocean to the south.

The Colorado and Barrancas rivers, which run from the Andes to the Atlantic, are commonly considered the northern limit of Argentine Patagonia. The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego is sometimes included as part of Patagonia. Most geographers and historians locate the northern limit of Chilean Patagonia at Huincul Fault, in Araucanía Region.

Tomorrow’s cyber threats demand a new kind of cybersecurity workforce

Leave a comment

.

In 2016, security researchers presented attendees of DEFCON, the annual Las Vegas hacker convention, with some unnerving findings about internet-connected smart locks: After testing over a dozen varieties of the devices across multiple manufacturers, the researchers found that 75 percent of them had major security vulnerabilities that left them exposed to hackers, who could unlock them from a quarter of a mile away.

For Steven Weber, a professor at the University of California School of Information and the director of The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, the security challenges facing smart locks epitomize a larger reality: When it comes to security, seemingly intangible digital vulnerabilities are increasingly having real-world practical consequences. This is a trend that will only increase as technology’s influence over everyday life continues to expand.

.

As “cybersecurity” becomes just “security” the industry will need a new kind of cybersecurity worker.
