Astronomy is life

Welcome to Genao.org. My name is Jason, I’m an astronomer based in Georgia. This domain used to belong to the  Georgian National Astrophysical Observatory, but it expired. I decided to buy it because I didn’t want it to go to waste. space

I’ve decided to make this into my personal blog; the majority of the posts will be about my job as an astronomer, but I’ll also have posts about my life, goals, and hopes.

By the way my name is not Jason, I’ve decided to use a pseudonym. I rather not have my name be publically available since I’ll be sharing some of my private thoughts and struggles.

If you’d like to chat with me, or have a question you can leave a comment on any of the posts here. As long as you put in a REAL email, I should be able to reach out to you. I check the blog every 2-3 days in general, so you may need to wait a little bit.

B Nox Review – Kinda..

A lot of you guys know I’m a gamer. Nothing new to you since I talk about it all the time, what a lot of people don’t know is I work out a lot. Like 2 hours a day, 5 days a week.

That might surprise a lot of people who haven’t seen me in real life, but if you did you would know I’m a pretty big dude :).

Anyway, this blog post wasn’t intended to be me gloating, but me giving a quick review on a product I used.

B Nox Reviewb nox review

Okay, first off I had this product recommended to me by a fitness blog I read: http://skinnyyoked.com, you can read their B Nox review by clicking this link. Their review is far more in-depth then my.

Here’s what I like about B-Nox

  • It’s cheap compared to most competitors
  • It works (I feel super energetic)
  • It mixes well

Here’s what I didn’t like about it

  • Tastes BAD!

Overall I would recommend the product since it works well and is pretty cheap. It’s a shame about the taste though, but that’s a preference. I’ve had far more disgusting things, lot of protein powers come to mind. Overall the taste is fine… Especially since it’s not like you need to take a lot of it; unlike most protein powders.

That’s my quick review on B-Nox. Overall I’d recommend giving it a try, since it’s cheap and works well. Thats all the matters.

Do you work out?

I don’t talk much about working out in this blog, but I do plan on writing some fitness guides in the near future. What would you guy’s like to see? Some guides on weight loss (Gaming makes you fat!) or some guides on bodybuilding?

You can let me know in the comments below, or send me an email.

Melbourne is too hot

Its been a while since I’ve written a blog post, so here it is!

First thing’s first my girlfriend has moved to Australia! Melbourne to be precise. This is good news for her ( She gets to live in Australia) but bad news for me ( My girlfriend is gone!). Luckily her move is temporary. She’ll be in Melbourne for a few months, while I live it up in London :).

There’s one thing I learned about Melbourne so far. It’s really hot. We’ve gotten to used to London, rain and cloudy skies have become our friends; so sunny & hot Australia is killing my girlfriend with the heat.

Snowman ducted heating installations

She’s staying with an Aunt in Melbourne so she’s lucky enough not to have to pay anything for rent. The bad news is her aunt is installing new heating and cooling systems. Snowman ducted heating installations to be precise.

So while the new heating/ cooling is being installed she has to tough it out without AC! Talk about a rough start. If she came a few days later everything would have been done before she arrived.

As for me I’ve been busy at work. Haven’t had much time to write anything yet, but should soon enough! So stay tuned.

 

My Stove broke, this apartment is terrible

Okay guy’s as you probably remember a little while ago I had some plumbing issues in my new rental apartment.

I’ve had the plumbing issues resoviled and I thought everything would be great, but it turns out I’m not that lucky.

Just as soon as the plumbing issues get fixed my dam stove stops working.

Why?brokenstove

No idea honestly. Unlike the plumbing issues I had I didn’t even want to touch the stove because

  1. I have no clue how to fix it
  2. Electricity is scary. I don’t want to get shocked

I talked to my friend in Oklamo who owns appliance repair business called Appliance Repair Broken Arrow.

I asked him what I should look for in when hiring a repairman; since unlike plumbing I have no idea what makes someone a “good” repairman.

Here’s what he said:

  1. Look for reviews on their website, or google (BBB)
  2. Talk to them on the phone. Let’s you see how quick they respond and get a feel for them
  3. Ask for a quote
  4. Compare multiple repairman

That’s it. Will give you guys an update about my U.K life very soon. Just hope that something else doesn’t break!

P.S landlord will be paying for the repair. Thankfully…

My friend died

Wasn’t sure if I was going to share this, but I’ve decided to. One of my old highschool friends died in a motorcycle accident.

He was a safe driver, but accidents happen and in a motorcycle accidents aren’t so forgiving. He slid off his bike and hit a tree.funeral

  1. He wasn’t drunk
  2. He wasn’t speeding
  3. He wasn’t driving in horrible conditions

And he still died. I’m shocked.

Life can suck, but it’s important to know that life can also end at any minute. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. I wasn’t really good friends with him, but I would attend the funeral.

The problem is the funeral is in Denmark and as you know I’ve just moved to the U.K so traveling again so soon is going to be tough. I’m looking for flights and hope I’ll be able to find a quick & cheap flight in time.

At least the family was able to find a funeral home for my friend. This is the place they found: Begravelse aarhus

Sorry about this depressing post guy’s, I’ll have something more upbeat and positive for you soon.

Cheers,

Jason.

Moved to the U.K! Welcomed with plumbing issues

Hey guy’s big news. I’ve moved from Georgia and I’m now living in the U.K! Well London to be precise. That’s why there hasn’t been any posts in a while from me.

So far I’m loving London, I rented a nice house while I settle down and decide whether I’ll buy or continue renting. Prices in London are crazy compared to Georgia, and everything’s much smaller.

Why I moved

You might be wondering why in the world would I move from my nice cushy rural house in Georgia to a cramped, expensive, and very big city.

Good question, I’m wondering that myself.

I decided to move because I was offered a very nice position at a local university (won’t name names). The pay is excellent, but the work I’ll be doing at the university is something I’ve always been interested in.

What I’ve left behind

I had no problems with the actual move. I have very little thing’s, but I did have to leave behind a few thing’s:

  • My t.v
  • My car

That’s pretty much all the important thing’s I’ve left behind. Oh yeah my entire family and all my friends! I’ll miss you guy’s, but we always have Skype!

Problems with my new place.

Within the first week I ran into a major problem. My plumbing really sucks and the water started leaking everywhere. I kinda freaked out since I’m renting and not sure if I’m responsible for this.london plumber

I googled around for plumbers near me and found: londonplumberservices.co.uk. Told them about my situation and they were there within 20 minutes!

Amazing how fast they came. Fixed the leak within 30 minutes, and that was that.

I talked to the guy I’m renting from and he’s going to pay for everything, so I’m super lucky!

Okay that’s it. If you need a plumber in London, I couldn’t recommend anyone more than londonplumberservices.co.uk.

I’ll let you guy’s know more about my move soon! I’m off for now.

 

 

YouTube SEO

Hey guy’s, this is unrelated to astronomy and space but is something I found very fascinating. As you know my friend started an SEO company: check out the post here: http://www.genao.org/friend-started-marketing-company/.

I didn’t really know much about SEO, so I started googling around and reading. I ran into a lot of youtube seointeresting things, but one in particular was YouTube SEO. I didn’t even think about YouTube as a search engine, but apparently it’s the second biggest search engine, right after Google of course.

Kinda funny that Google owns the #1 and #2 biggest search engines ( Anti competitive much?)

Anyway, I found the algorithm for YouTube search engine optimization to be very interesting. I found a great guide, if you have time I recommend you read it. Here it is: Youtube seo.

That’s all! I have some awesome pictures of space company in soon, and will update the blog as soon as I can with them, so stay tuned!

Friend Started a SEO Marketing Company

A good friend of my started a search engine optimization (also known as SEO) company for Chiropractor. SEO is what you do so your website shows up higher in search engines.If you’re a chiropractor by any chance (I know it’s a long shot) and need help with marketing, check out his site:

www.savedbysearch.com

I recommend reading this: Chiropractic SEO guide or this Chiropractic Marketing Ideas, even if you’re not a chiropractor, since the stuff is applicable to everyone.

I don’t normally promote friends companies, but I’ve known this guy a long time and know he’s great at his job. He also helped me setup this blog, so I owe him one!

Now that horrible forced promotion is over, let’s talk about something else. What should I blog about? What are you guys and girls interested in? I was thinking of uploading cool pictures & videos I find. Kinda like a tumblr for space, but not on tumblr.

If you’re not a chiropractor, but live in Canada I highly recommend this guy: http://www.mississaugaseoconsultant.ca/ . He does some pretty good seo for Canada 😛
