Enchanted America: How Intuition and Reason Divide Our Politics, Oliver, Wood
"America is in civic chaos, its politics rife with conspiracy theories and false information.  Nationalism and authoritarianism are on the rise, while scientists, universities, and news organizations are viewed with increasing mistrust. Its citizens reject scientific evidence on climate change and vaccinations while embracing myths of impending apocalypse. And then there is Donald Trump, a presidential candidate who won the support of millions of conservative Christians despite having no moral or political convictions. What is going on?
"The answer, according to J. Eric Oliver and Thomas J. Wood, can be found in the most important force shaping American politics today: human intuition. Much of what seems to be irrational in American politics arises from the growing divide in how its citizens make sense of the world. On one side are rationalists. They use science and reason to understand reality. On the other side are intuitionists. They rely on gut feelings and instincts as their guide to the world. Intuitionists believe in ghosts and End Times prophecies. They embrace conspiracy theories, disbelieve experts, and distrust the media.  They are stridently nationalistic and deeply authoritarian in their outlook. And they are the most enthusiastic supporters of Donald Trump. The primary reason why Trump captured the presidency was that he spoke about politics in a way that resonated with how Intuitionists perceive the world. The Intuitionist divide has also become a threat to the American way of life. A generation ago, intuitionists were dispersed across the political spectrum, when most Americans believed in both God and science. Today, intuitionism is ideologically tilted toward the political right. Modern conservatism has become an Intuitionist movement, defined by conspiracy theories, strident nationalism, and hostility to basic civic norms. 
"Enchanted America is a clarion call to rationalists of all political persuasions to reach beyond the minority and speak to intuitionists in a way they understand.  The values and principles that define American democracy are at stake. "

--- I am _a priori_ skeptical about the thesis that "intuitionists" are ideologically concentrated. (Also, that's not _intuition_, which would be individual and not socially shared...)

Guide to Spectroscopy and Spectral Lines | astrobites
This guide, a continual work in progress like our other guides, aims to provide the context necessary to understand much of the spectral jargon in scientific papers on the arXiv. This page will give an overview of how spectroscopy works and what spectral lines are frequently observed by astronomers. In the future, look for more information on how spectral information is taken across the electromagnetic spectrum as well as more information about spectral lines important for diagnostics of certain astrophysical phenomenon.
It is not an exaggeration to state that a large part of astronomical knowledge would have gone undiscovered if it were not for the optical spectrograph. Now, modern spectroscopy techniques work across the electromagnetic spectrum and many important discoveries are being made in regimes previously closed to astronomers, such as the radio, submillimeter, infrared, and x-ray.

Native Americans served in the military before they were even allowed to vote & continue to serve at the highest rate of any population in this country. We need to put an end to every form of voter discrimination, & our bill would be an important starting point.

Astronomical spectroscopy - Wikipedia
Astronomical spectroscopy is the study of astronomy using the techniques of spectroscopy to measure the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, including visible light and radio, which radiates from stars and other celestial objects. A stellar spectrum can reveal many properties of stars, such as their chemical composition, temperature, density, mass, distance, luminosity, and relative motion using Doppler shift measurements. Spectroscopy is also used to study the physical properties of many other types of celestial objects such as planets, nebulae, galaxies, and active galactic nuclei.

Spectra - Introduction
A spectrum is simply a chart or a graph that shows the intensity of light being emitted over a range of energies. Have you ever seen a spectrum before? Probably. Nature makes beautiful ones we call rainbows. Sunlight sent through raindrops is spread out to display its various colors (the different colors are just the way our eyes perceive radiation with slightly different energies).

Glancing
“The analogy I'm thinking of here is a group of people sitting working at their computers. Every so often, you look up and look around you, sometimes to rest your eyes, and other times to check people are still there. Sometimes you catch an eye, sometimes not. Sometimes it triggers a conversation. But it bonds you into a group experience, without speaking.”
