Since January 2008, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index surveys 1,000 Americans every day. LIVESCIENCE published today a list in The Well-Being of 50 U.S. States from a study of interviews with over 350,000 individuals. The results are valid for the period between January 2 and December 30, 2008.
Generalizations were also made in the study that well-being (or happiness) was highest in the Mountain and West Coast states, then the Eastern Seaboard followed by the Midwest and Southern states.
Measurements matter in global climate affairs. "IBUKI" is the Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) that has been circling the Earth since January 23, 2009.  

IBUKI ('breath' in Japanese) will assist in precise monitoring of the global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations when its observation data sent from space are combined with data obtained on land and used with simulation models. Methane is also observed.

1571 was also interesting. Galileo Galilei was then seven years old. Johannes Kepler was born on December 27. There were two solar eclipses, a total on January 25 and an annular on July 21-22. Four, one partial and three penumbral, lunar eclipses occurred on August 5 and February 10, July 7, and December 31, respectively.
