Stargazing - 12.03.12

The Milky Way arches high overhead on December evenings.

This faint band passes from the Northern Cross, which is in the west, to W-shaped Cassiopeia high overhead, to near the face of Taurus, the bull, in the east.

Star Populations

The Milky Way arches high overhead on December evenings. This faint band passes from the Northern Cross, which is in the west, to W-shaped Cassiopeia high overhead, to near the face of Taurus, the bull, in the east.

The Milky Way glows a little more softly at this time of year than it does in summer. That’s because we’re looking away from the galaxy’s crowded center and toward the thinly settled edge of its disk. And beyond that edge is the halo — an extended volume of space that contains the galaxy’s oldest stars.

Astronomers classify the stars in the halo as Population II, while most of those in the disk are Population I. The difference isn’t just where the stars reside — it’s what they’re made of.

All stars consist mainly of hydrogen and helium, which were created in the Big Bang. But they also have a smattering of heavier elements. These elements were created in the hearts of other stars, then hurled into space as the stars died, where they could be incorporated into new stars.

Population II stars formed when there were almost no heavier elements around, so they have only tiny amounts of them. But Population I stars — stars like the Sun — are younger, so they have higher proportions of heavy elements. It’s still not much, but it’s enough to set these stars apart from their older kin.

One class of Population II star is in a stage of life that helps astronomers measure the size of the universe. More about that tomorrow.

G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 12.03.12


Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord.

Advent is full of movement: the people of God coming to the mountain of the Lord and the Lord coming to his people in the midst of their wintering.

Advent is full of transformation: swords become ploughshares, darkness becomes light, God becomes one like us.

How apt that today we remember and celebrate the patron of the missions, Francis Xavier.

We have the gift of life and of faith in you, Lord Jesus.

We believe that you have come among us.

This urges us to be more welcoming, more searching, more trusting.

In all our coming and going, let us always focus on you.

Isaiah 2:1-5. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord—Ps 121(122):1-2, 4-5, 6-9. Matthew 8:5-11.

Elizabeth Anne Smith

Age 70, a lifelong resident of Grantsville, WV, passed away from her all-too-brief fight with pancreatic cancer on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 8:00 AM at the Charleston Area Medical Center.

Anne was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a dedicated educator. Her most fulfilling and rewarding years were spent teaching our children as a para-professional with the Calhoun County Board of Education until she retired eight years ago.

After retirement, Anne spent much of her spare time with the Red Hat Society, children charities such as the Christmas Connection and the Gabriel Project, and her rare, but much loved trips to her favorite vacation spot in the world, Maui, Hawaii.

Anne is preceded in death by her parents, Fred O. and Eleanor Barnes, and her brother Bill Barnes.

She is survived by her husband, Bill Smith, her two children, Jason and Shannon Smith, and her brother Dick Barnes. Anne had two grandsons, Christopher and Mykal Johnson and three great-grandchildren that she loved with all her heart.

Per Anne’s wishes, her remains will be cremated.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” held at the Calhoun Senior Center from 2:00 to 4:00 PM December 23, 2012 (Sunday) to wish a fond “aloha” to Anne.

In lieu of flowers, Anne’s family is requesting donations made to the American Cancer Society or for the purchase of children’s books to be donated to Pleasant Hill School in her honor.

Visitors will proceed to the South Plaza of the Capitol where the Philip Barbour High School Band, the “Pride of Barbour County” will perform and the tree donated by Mr. and Mrs. Al Tolliver of Danese will be lit as the governor and first lady pay tribute to our veterans and military families.

The first floor Rotunda of the Capitol will feature a holiday tree decorated with handmade ornaments created by school children throughout the state as well as a musical performance by the Martin Luther King Jr. Male Chorus.

WVU and Marshall Football Results - 12.01.12

The Gilmer Free Press

West Virginia will close the regular season today against coach Charlie Weis and his 1-10 Kansas Jayhawks, a team that excels at little but the running game.

A potential 7-5 regular season finish rides on the Mountaineers’ ability to stop the Jayhawks highly effective and ever-changing rushing attack.

Kansas ranks No. 2 in the Big 12 in rushing offense, and it attacks the defense in many ways, which has had defensive coordinator Joe DeForest burning the candle late this week in preparation.

“It’s more formations in the run game. It’s 11 guys in the box one game, then they spread everybody out like Baylor next game,“ said DeForest earlier this week. “Then they’ll run zone read. Then they’ll run option. Then they’ll run [the] power game. Then the quarterback will run.

“Last three days I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out ‘What are they going to do against us?‘ “

He has studied tape from every game this season, and notes how different each game has looked.

“Against Oklahoma [Kansas had a] different game plan. Against Iowa State, a different game plan. Baylor, different game plan. [Texas] Tech, totally different formations,“ DeForest said. “So you’re preparing for five different offenses, basically. But once you find out what they’re doing, they stick with it pretty much.“

The Mountaineers defense has not been praised for much this season, but the run defense has been respectable.

While the West Virginia pass defense ranks 120th—worst in Division I-A—the rushing defense is ranked 40th, allowing just 141.2 rushing yards a game.

“They have a lot of formations. They basically run about five plays out of all those formations. We just have to stay grounded and disciplined. We need to tackle everybody and hold everybody in,“ linebacker Jared Barber said of Kansas this week.

Weis generally turns to running backs James Sims and Tony Pierson.

Pierson ranks No. 2 in the Big 12 in rushing, with 73 yards a game, but Sims is the workhorse. He has gotten more than 20 carries in each of the past six games and has rushed for more than 100 yards in six games this season.

“Their running back is really patient. He makes guys miss,“ said Barber. “He’s also a pretty big back. He’s fast, and he also has a lot of power. He’s a great back and a great runner. He reads his line really well. We just have to tackle him, and we’ll be alright.“

Weis said this week his team will rely on ball control to try and keep the West Virginia offense off the field.

“Obviously, one of the strengths of our offense is ball control and running the football,“ said Weis. “Obviously, you win games by scoring and 17 points is not going to get it done. We are going to have to do better than that, but I think that the less that their offense is on the field, the better.“

While the Mountaineers’ bowl destination is unknown, signs are that a 7-5 finish would mean a trip west to San Diego’s Holiday Bowl. But other games can’t be ruled out just yet, including New York’s Pinstripe Bowl if the cards fall right or Houston’s Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Regardless, the 7-5 finish is the goal. And slowing Kansas comes first.

“They are a top-20 team in the country when it comes to rushing offense,“ said coach Dana Holgorsen. “They switched their quarterback midseason to the redshirt freshman, Michael Cummings. He is a talented kid that will continue to get better and better.

“They will run the zone read with him, establish the run and try to put the ball in play when they need to. They will bring in Dayne Crist to throw the ball down the field at times. Our job defensively is identifying their sets and the different looks we will get.“
