Mi Swing Es Tropical

I got tired of wait­ing for Boricua Boy to make a new post, so I’m mak­ing one. I thought I’d share my favorite song from the Apple iPod cam­paign, Mi Swing Es Trop­i­cal by Quan­tic & Nick­ode­mus. I bought this one on iTunes a while ago but got to hear the oth­er day and it’s just infec­tious. No way you can lis­ten to it and not dance. I found a link on YouTube to the video. The sound and video qual­i­ty is not that good but the video is very fun­ny....

FAST FIVE to Puerto Rico

But it will be Brazil in the fifth Fast & Furi­ous.

Before the Rican Mani­acs show a bit of pride though, it should be not­ed that they won’t be rep­re­sent­ed in the film itself. The web­site reports the streets and neigh­bor­hoods are being served to look like Brazil, which is where the film’s sto­ry will take place. The fifth adven­ture will star Vin Diesel, Paul Walk­er, Dwayne John­son, TJ Has­san, Tego Calderon and Don Omar. “Fast” direc­tor Justin Lin is com­ing back to helm, based on a sto­ry by Chris Mor­gan.

Fast Five will hit the­aters June 10,...

Calling All Amateur Astronomers: Help Comb Arecibo Data for Gems

Einstein@Home is one of the world’s largest pub­lic com­put­ing projects, with more than 200,000 peo­ple donat­ing time on their own com­put­ers to mine grav­i­ta­tion­al wave data for the tell-tale signs of pul­sars. Now, Einstein@Home will begin search­ing Areci­bo radio data to find bina­ry sys­tems con­sist­ing of the most extreme objects in the uni­verse: a spin­ning neu­tron star orbit­ing anoth­er neu­tron star or a black hole. And the project needs even more pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion. Today, Bruce Allen, direc­tor of the Einstein@Home project, and Jim Cordes, of Cor­nell Uni­ver­si­ty, announced that the Einstein@Home project is begin­ning to ana­lyze data tak­en by the PALFA Con­sor­tium at the Areci­bo Obser­va­to­ry in...
