Return the box to Spectrum, cancel your cable TV subscription, and install an inexpensive digital antenna. These small antennas usually work perfectly when installed indoors, right next to the TV.I enjoy dozens of free local TV stations over the airwaves, just like in the old days, and I enjoy internet content on my TV by connecting my laptop to my TV with an HDMI cable. Digital antennas are available for less than $50.GUY SPIERSNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

WOW! SUPER-MOON OVER DONEGAL SKY

first_imgDONEGAL is being lit up tonight by a so-called Super Moon – 15% bigger than normal and a great deal brighter.The super-moon is due to a combination of the moon’s elliptical orbit around Earth and the time at which it is at its closest point to us – occurring at the same time as the full moon cycle.Typically the two occur a day or so apart, but this one is happening at the same time. “It’s very unique,” says the American space agency Nasa, “Each of these motions is independent.”This phenomenon gives the moon the appearance of being larger, but it isn’t actually closer to our planet. It’s kind of a psychological trick on the eye. WOW!
