  • For the first time in 99 years, a total solar eclipse will cross North America later next month. The eclipse is expected to cross from Oregon, entering the U.S. at 10:15 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, and leaving U.S. shores from South Carolina at 2:50 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, over the course of an hour and a half. Becoming a citizen scientist through The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment program begins with downloading NASA's free GLOBE Observer Eclipse APP, which will fuel a nationwide science experiment. On Aug. 21, citizen scientists will be able to measure how the eclipse changes atmospheric conditions near them, contributing to a database used by scientists and students worldwide. The app explains how to make eclipse observations, but you will need to obtain a thermometer to accurately measure air temperature. Joining the experiment means you can help collect cloud and temperature data with your phone. NASA said that observers in areas with a partial eclipse or those who are outside the path of totality are encouraged to participate alongside those within totality. To learn more about how NASA is looking for the solar eclipses to help understand earth's energy, click HERE. Fourteen states will experience night-like darkness for approximately two minutes in the middle of the day, according to NASA. 'No matter where you are in North America, whether it's cloudy, clear, or rainy, NASA wants as many people as possible to help with this citizen scientist project,' said Kristen Weaver, deputy coordinator for the project. 'We want to inspire a million eclipse viewers to become eclipse scientists.
  • Addicted to Coke Zero? You might want to make sure you get your fill of the fizzy low-calorie soft drink before it goes away. Coca-Cola announced plans Wednesday to phase out the beverage in the United States in the coming months.  But Coca-Cola won’t leave Coke Zero lovers high and dry.  The company plans to introduce Coca-Cola Zero Sugar in August. >> Read more trending news Coca-Cola Zero Sugar is already being sold in 25 markets across the globe, including in Latin America and the United Kingdom, where it was introduced in April 2016. The soft drink has shown significant sales success abroad. According to Coca-Cola spokespersons, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar will taste more like standard Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey called the new drink a “reinvention of Coke Zero,” according to CNN. “We’ve made the great taste of Coke Zero even better by optimizing the unique blend of flavors that gave Coke Zero its real Coca-Cola taste,” the company announced in a statement. “Coca-Cola Zero Sugar is our best-tasting zero-sugar Coca-Cola yet.” Many people don’t know that Diet Coke and Coke Zero are no-sugar drinks. Coca-Cola officials said they named the new beverage Coca-Cola Zero Sugar in an effort to be as “clear and descriptive as possible” about the beverage’s sugar-free ingredients.   Coke Zero, introduced in 2005, was specifically marketed to men, who were shown to associate diet drinks with women’s interests.
