5 Things: Watch the Solar Eclipse Today Online

1. Home Buyer's Seminar: Free Home Buyer's Seminar on tonight, Nov. 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. If buying a home is in your future, this is a great time to consider your options. RSVP to Kathy Murphy at 603-521-6400. 

2. Community Resource Expo: You should consider the 3rd Annual Community Resource Expo at the Adult Learning Center, Nov. 13-14, during which representatives from over 30 non-profit and community-based agencies and organizations are scheduled to participate. The event runs from 6:30 - 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 13 and from 10:30 a.m.- 12 p.m. on Wednesday, November 14. The Adult Learning Center is located at 4 Lake Ave.

3. Good Year to Be a Deer Hunter: The mid-season deer kill in New Hampshire is up significantly over 2010 and 2011 – 1,943 as of mid-October – according to NH Fish & Game. You can see the 10-year comparison chart here, but it looks like the number of deer bagged by NH hunters is approaching the 2007 deer count, which was the state's second highest ever.

4. Total Eclipse of the Sun: Turn around, bright eyes...  oh, wait, it's an actual total eclipse of the sun, not a Bonnie Tyler tribute. Australia will be the place where the moon blots out the sun, Wednesday, Nov. 14 Aussie time, which is about 2:30 p.m. our time. You can watch a live stream of the eclipse via this link to the Splooh Space Cam.

5. Plastic, Heal Thyself: Fun with science, via Mashable: "Researchers at Stanford University have created a synthetic material that’s capable of healing itself after it’s been punctured, and is sensitive to touch. Sort of like human skin. A material made of polymer plastic mixed with pieces of nickel which allows long strands of molecules to easily break apart (say, when the material is sliced with a scalpel). The conductivity from the metal then helps the bonds rearrange themselves and, because of their flexibility, restore the original structure within 30 minutes. Researchers are hoping the material can be used for future prosthetic limbs and electrical wiring. Link here to watch an explanatory video.
