JUPITER: LOST PET, BIG REWARD

Monday, May 24th, 2010

SEB as seen from Earth

Dudes.  I’m afraid today’s post isn’t as groovy as usual.  You see, no matter how responsible and loving a pet owner may be (or in my case, rescuer and cosmic soul mate,) once in a while one of our animal buds will split and go astray. It happens to the best of us and now it has happened to me!!!

Apparently some of your way out scientists on earth have noticed.

The brown cloudy band, known as the South Equatorial Belt, or SEB, started fading late last year, NASA said in a story on its website.

“But I certainly didn’t expect to see it completely disappear,” said amateur astronomer Anthony Wesley of Australia. “Jupiter continues to surprise.”

Orton says the belt may not be gone, just hidden under higher clouds.

“It’s possible,” he said on the NASA website, “that some ‘ammonia cirrus’ has formed on top of the SEB, hiding the SEB from view.”

On Earth, NASA says, white wispy cirrus clouds are made of ice crystals. On Jupiter, the same sort of clouds can form, but the crystals are made of ammonia instead of water.

On Earth, SEB is short for the Southern Equatorial Belt. It is construed as a large a cloud belt that covers the southern hemisphere of my pad.

FYI scientists on Earth, SEB is in fact, my beloved Bernese Mountain dog, Samuel Edward Barkington III.  SEB, or SEBBY for short.  He’s just too darn smart and has once again escaped from my lower hemisphere!!

I am worried.

Now the dudes at NASA are trying calm me down, pointing out that SEB is a wayward pet who always manages to go missing, but has always returned. They’re also tellin’ me to hang loose as they will be on constant watch until SEBBY comes back. And though they’re trying to get me to chillax, this chill pill ain’t going down easy, man. How am I supposed to meditate when SEBBY’s out there in the galaxy all alone, cold and hungry and wanting for some patented Jupiter belly rubs?

For all you space explorers out there, if you come across SEBBY, lure him to you with some Comet Tails (his favorite treat) and send me an emergency transmission.  In the meantime, for more info on SEB, please click here and dig this article from CNN.

Peace Out,

Jupiter

A LONG TIME AGO, IN A GIRLAXY FAR, FAR AWAY…

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Tired of being a scruffy-looking nerf herder? Well finally, for all you Star Wars fangirls out there in the girlaxy, there is a new line of clothing and merchandise made specifically for you!

Her Universe is the first Stars Wars fashion collection made just for her. It is the creation of actress Ashley Eckstein who plays the voice of Ahsoka Tano in the animated series Stars Wars: The Clone Wars. “After four years of working on The Clone Wars, I have become a huge Star Wars fan and have noticed the rapidly increasing number of women who share my love for George Lucas’s amazing universe. Wanting to give these fans a voice and affirm that they play an important role in the world of Star Wars and science-fiction, we created the Her Universe brand especially for them.”

Described playfully as “geek chic,” this fem Star Wars line will be introduced at this years’ San Diego Comic-Con in July, and will also be available at the Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando, Florida this August.

But if your hyperdrive is on the fritz, and you can’t make it to those conventions, you can still learn more by visiting the Her Universe website as well as checking out Ashley’s Her Universe Blog. In the meantime, check out the below pics of some clothing that will be available soon, modeled by Ashley herself.

JUPITER APPROVED: ALL NATURAL COSMETIC BRAND CREATED BY 15 YEAR OLD CEO!

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

avafounder

When Ava Anderson was 14 she and her mother read a report from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) about hazardous chemicals found in cosmetics and skin care products. She was shocked to learn that almost all products that marketed themselves as “organic”, “natural”, and “pure” still had toxins and chemicals that were hazardous to the body.

So what did Ava do about it? At the age of 15, with the help of family and friends, Ava created her own company and launched the first full line of non-toxic skin care and cosmetics. One that is all-natural, environmentally conscience, and does not test on animals!!!

Ava Anderson Non-Toxic has six skin care products (cleanser, moisturizer, toner, exfoliator, sugar lip scrub, and eye makeup remover) and sells lipstick and lip gloss that all score a “zero” on the Cosmetic Database Toxicity Scale. And with more products on their way (foundation, blush, bath and body, and even a line for babies and men), the sky is the limit for this young, idealistic, entrepreneur.

Way to go Ava! The universe needs more women like you who are promoting healthy, all natural, lifestyles.

Environmentally Yours,

Jupiter

VENUS APPROVED: WAY TO GO BIGELOW!

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

1137448asIt took 82 years, but a female director has finally won an Oscar. Not only that, but Katherine Bigelow’s film “The Hurt Locker” won best picture beating out perennial favorite “Avatar” (directed by her ex-husband, James Cameron, no less).

During the silent era of cinema there were many notable female directors including one of Hollywood’s first starlets, Mary Pickford. But by the end of the twentieth century there were almost none. In the past few years, however, there has been an emergence of very talented female directors who are all making major motion pictures.

After the Oscars, Katherine shared her views on making history.

“I’d love to just think of myself as a filmmaker and I long for the day when the modifier can be a moot point. But I’m ever grateful if I can inspire some young intrepid, tenacious male or female filmmaker and have them feel that the impossible is possible.”

Way to go Katherine! The Girlaxy is happy to have a planetary trailblazer, such as yourself, on board. And please feel free to give my interstellar agent a call if a notable part presents itself on your next film.

Love Always, Venus

10 year old receives Medal of Bravery

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

bravery-medal-cp-8068797

Back in March of 2007, eight year old Kelsey Roy and her mother were enjoying a winter outing along the Mississippi Lake in Canada until disaster struck. Unaware of where she was walking, Kelsey’s mother, Karin, fell through the ice covering the lake and into deadly frigid waters.

Fearing she would suffer the same fate, Karin pleaded for her daughter to leave, but Kelsey refused. Instead she crawled along the thin ice, grabbed her mother, and pulled her to safety. Afterwards, Kelsey said, “I just knew that I couldn’t let my Mom go under.”

This past Thursday, Kelsey was awarded a Medal of Bravery by Ontario’s Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean.

We here at MWGG Central Control would also like to commend Kelsey on this extraordinary act of bravery. Her courage in the face of danger is a trait that all cadets of the Girlaxy can admire.

To Girls who like rock, we salute you!

FULL MOON RISING

Friday, January 29th, 2010

kinkei_moon

Look towards the night sky this Friday (Jan. 29th) and you will see a Full Moon. A Full Moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the earth lies between the sun and the moon so that the moon is visible as a fully illuminated disc. It appears only once every month; on average every 29.53 days.

So to celebrate the first full moon of 2010, we are posting some Fan Art of, you guessed it—the Moon! The Moon is quickly becoming a Girlaxy favorite and has even developed a small underground following of devoted fans.

So enjoy the art! And if you have an original illustration of your favorite Galaxy Girl, well we would love to see it! Please forward it to Mother Earth and we’ll put it up on the blog for all the Solar Sisters of the Solar Sisterhood to see.
