  Sneaker review: Crossover Culture Fortune LP Crossover Culture is the new kid on the block in the basketball sneaker world, but their first offerings are hanging tough with the competition.The Los Angeles-based basketball footwear and apparel startup released its entire collection, including an "Everyday" (lifestyle) and "Gameday" (performance) line of sneakers. Among its court-ready offerings, were the Sniper LP (high), Fortune LP (mid) and the Sliper Lo LP (low). Dedicated to outfitting the renaissance of positionless basketball, where players roles are defined by their skills and athleticism and not their heights and weights, CEO Ryan Duke and his staff are endeavoring to capitalize on a movement.

So begins a lunar eclipse tetrad—a series of 4 consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six month intervals. The total eclipse of April 15, 2014, will be followed by another on Oct. 8, 2014, and another on April 4, 2015, and another on Sept.

The longest lunar eclipse of the century will happen on July 27, 2018, but you may need to travel far to see it: Lunar Eclipse Lights Up New Zealand Sky © Phil Walter / Getty Images Lunar Eclipse Lights Up New Zealand Sky A total lunar eclipse will rise over the night sky this summer, and it will be the longest eclipse of this century, according to NASA. On July 27, a lunar eclipse will be fully visible for 1 hour and 43 minutes. But you may have to travel to see it since the eclipse will only be visible in parts of South America, much of Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. 

A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and moon line up perfectly, casting Earth's shadow on the moon. The eclipse will be partially visible for 3 hours and 55 minutes. This also makes it the longest time an eclipse will be partially visible between the years 2011 and 2020.

Daylight Saving Time. Lunar eclipses also tend to last longer than solar eclipses and therefore occur much more frequently in any given location. On average, it takes about 375 years for a total solar eclipse to happen again at the same location.

A lunar eclipse always happens within two weeks of a solar eclipse. This summer, two partial solar eclipses will take place on July 12 and August 11. These can be seen from Australia, and parts of Europe and Asia, respectively.

Earlier this year, the world got a glimpse of a total lunar eclipse on January 31. Not only was it an eclipse, but it became a Super Blue Blood Moon because it synced up with a supermoon, which is a moon that appears extra big and bright, and a blue moon, which is the second full moon during a calendar month. 

Hawaii and Alaska had the best seats of the Super Blue Blood Moon, along with the Canadian Yukon, Australia and Asia. The western U.S. was positioned for good viewing, too, along with Russia. However, the U.S. East Coast, Europe and most of South America and Africa were out of luck for the full eclipse, only getting a partial view.

15 legal abortions were carried out in Ireland last year

  15 legal abortions were carried out in Ireland last year This is a drop from 25 legally-permitted abortions being carried out last year.   Last month, Irish people voted overwhelmingly to Repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Irish Constitution, which grants the equal right to life to the mother and the unborn child.The Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act remains the primary legislation on abortion until such a time as the Eighth is Repealed and legislation is passed through the Oireachtas, which would legalise abortion in many cases.

But on that date the moon was near apogee, its most distant point from Earth. Coming up after this month 's will be blue moon total lunar eclipses on December 31, 2028 (though not at perigee) and on January 31, 2037 (17 hours before perigee).

Some places will experience a supermoon, a blue moon and a total lunar eclipse on the same night. A supermoon appears up to 30 percent brighter and up to 14 percent larger than normal. A blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month .

The U.S. will miss out again with this upcoming celestial phenomenon, so if you want to experience the longest lunar eclipse of the century, you'll have to travel to one of the other five continents it will be visible from. 

The U.S. will have to wait until July 2020 to experience a lunar eclipse, according to NASA. It is unclear which areas of the U.S. will be able to see it and how long it will be visible in the night sky.
