How often do you watch a YouTube video? Once in a blue moon? It’s here in 2012

You  may say that you watch a video on YouTube once in a blue moon. Chances are you watch one more often. In 2010 the number of users on the internet climbed over 2 billion. With 4 billion views per day on YouTube  that means that there are an average of two videos watched every day per person on the internet. Currently there are about 48 hours of vidoe uploaded to YouTube every minute. Here at the Cyber Wigwam we have some bloggers venturing out into YouTube and have developed their own channel. YouTube classes are available from lept Like A Blog if you are ready to start producing some unique content.

Blue Moon 101 or Why Do We Call It Blue? and Other Trivia

Originally posted on Encore Now:

August 2012 we will have two full moons in one month.  We like to name the moons such as the Harvest Moon, the planting moon.  Now you and I know that it would be a rare occurence for the second moon in the month to actually be blue, but it is a romantic notion nonetheless.

On the internet, I found different reasons for it to be called the Blue Moon.

A blue moon, the second full moon in the span of a month, originally was called blue around 1883. This was right after Krakatoa erupted, sending ash into the air. There was enough that the moon looked blue through all the dust. This is how we got “once in a blue moon,” whose name was later switched with harvest moon, to get what we now call a blue moon.

Teddy appeared to have antenna coming out of the top of his head! Was this really their Teddy or his Martian twin? Would he be able to work? Would he cause electrical interference? Would he tune into the Mars lander Curiosity instead of TLC work? How can what is learned on this mission help the construction business? There are so very many questions.

Teddy is fascinated by science and how it can help our every day lives in so many ways.  He was up very early last Monday morning to see Curiosity land – perfectly! In some recent research, Teddy discovered many things that have been developed for space programs have also been a great help to home owners and even contractors – cordless power tools; light weight…
