Greetings, Morgan Baskin. I have a few questions I would like you to address in order for me to take you seriously. Now you keep spouting your slogan "Because youth matter", but your recent answers say that you're interested in the development of the city. Statistically speaking your target demographic, ages 20-29, is only 19% of eligible voters(2013), if they all vote. Your plans look very idealistic and not realistic. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Give me a reason to vote for you.

I am idealistic. I have to be. I cannot live in a world where I don’t believe in ideal outcomes. That doesn’t mean I am disconnected from reality. It just means I am determined to be optimistic and believe the ideal is possible. It’s for my own sanity. If I didn’t I would go watch Netflix in my bedroom alone.

That young people matter is not an idea limited to young people. I don’t think that only people in that small number you have given, which doesn’t include many people I consider youth, is the only group interested in my messaging. It’s wrong to think only a demographic directly affected has any interest or stake in a cause. There are many people over 29 working for youth engagement who have shown an interesting my campaign.

My demographic is: interested in youth voices being included in traditional politics. That is a large demographic, or so I am going to believe until someone can show me a study that disproves it.

In five years I hope to have just been elected to my second term of office. If not I see myself working in areas of youth engagement and politics in some way. 

Want a reason to vote for me? A vote for me is a vote for youth voices. 

-Morgan

Oldest recorded supernova







This image combines data from four space telescopes to create a multi-wavelength view of all that remains of RCW 86, the oldest documented example of a supernova. Chinese astronomers witnessed the event in 185 A.D., documenting a mysterious “guest star” that remained in the sky for eight months. X-ray images from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton Observatory were combined to form the blue and green colors in the image. The X-rays show the interstellar gas that has been heated to millions of degrees by the passage of the shock wave from the supernova.Infrared data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope and WISE, Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, shown in yellow and red, reveal dust radiating at a temperature of several hundred degrees below zero, warm by comparison to normal dust in our Milky Way galaxy.By studying the X-ray and infrared data, astronomers were able to determine that the cause of the explosion was a Type Ia supernova, in which an otherwise-stable white dwarf, or dead star, was pushed beyond the brink of stability when a companion star dumped material onto it. Furthermore, scientists used the data to solve another mystery surrounding the remnant - how it got to be so large in such a short amount of time. By blowing away wind prior to exploding, the white dwarf was able to clear out a huge “cavity,” a region of very low-density surrounding the system. The explosion into this cavity was able to expand much faster than it otherwise would have.This is the first time that this type of cavity has been seen around a white dwarf system prior to explosion. Scientists say the results may have significant implications for theories of white-dwarf binary systems and Type Ia supernovae.RCW 86 is approximately 8,000 light-years away. At about 85 light-years in diameter, it occupies a region of the sky in the southern constellation of Circinus that is slightly larger than the full moon. This image was compiled in October 2011.
