The silver-tongued liars’ playbook

Paul Driessen at CFACT - 32 minutes ago
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen explains the absurdity of the demand by a North Carolina government scientist to reduce the allowable limit of chromium 6 from 100 parts per billion to 70 parts per trillion. The clear intent, he says, is not public health but the shutdown of all coal mining operations (and coal use) in the state and nation. Should his ego be satisfied, the real harm of his folly would be that citizens and institutions alike would be paying double for electricity -- almost impossible for poor families and a major burden on, for example, nonprofit hospitals.

Greg Walcher, a former secretary of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, argues that forests provide the world’s greatest resource for cleaning CO2 out of the atmosphere. Rotting and fires themselves emit greenhouse gases, but atmospheric CO2 makes all plants grow faster and better and with improved tolerance to drought. Thus, it is vital that the U.S. must reverse policies that oppose logging, tree thinning, and other management necessary for healthy forests.

For now, anyway, it's only a campaign speech dressed up in sadistic language and some alleged math. It's the ceaseless drone of the swarms of mosquitoes that's doing us in.

Just to be specific: I have used the German AVIRA software (web) with the red umbrella icon for over 15 years. It's probably not the most patriotic thing to do because Czechia has turned into an antivirus superpower largely thanks to Avast which recently devoured its competitor AVG (for $1.3 bn) and the company's headquarters stayed in Prague. Avast actually has more employees than Avira etc. Avast was founded as a communist-era co-op in 1988, AVIRA is two years older. Almost all people on ... more »

Camphor Press releases Shackleton's "Formosa Calling"

Michael Turton at The View from Taiwan - 18 hours ago
My friends at Camphor Press have released Formosa Calling, a harrowing account of the 2-28 massacre by Allan Shackleton... Allan J. Shackleton was a New Zealand officer with the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration assigned to in Taiwan at the time. His eyewitness account of the massacre is an important piece in understanding modern Taiwan’s founding tragedy. Shackleton tried for years to get Formosa Calling published, but it was deemed too politically sensitive during the Cold War when “Free China” was an ally of the Western world. Finally, after Taiwan’s first ... more »

Why Eating Pomegranate Could Save Your Life

There is a strong case here for including pomegranates in your diet. We already know about its cardiovascular benefits and now we are aware that it also suppresses cancer stem cells as well. .

Do You Have The Stomach For Moss and Lichens?

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
Personally no, but i thought we should ask the question since they were in Neanderthal diets. I suspect that they used moss to handle hot rocks and certainly to wipe their ass. What this makes clear is that eating it is possible but unlikely. As they were eating mostly vegetables it is possible that they fished out chunks to eat with sticks and then used moss to hold the hot food while they ate. Thus we have ample practical reasons to be handling moss while eating, but no good reason to eat moss. all this would ensure some moss in the mix to be observed now. *Do You Have Th... more »

Some Neanderthals were Vegetarians who used Natural Forms of Penicillin and Aspirin as medicine

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
An interesting window on the Neanderthal life way. They obviously made tea. This meant a clay line hole in the ground at least when no pottery was available or more likely a clay lined wooden bucket. I suspect that the water was heated with hot rocks handled using wads of fresh moss and that is the best explanation for the presence of moss at all. A little moss left in the stew or beverage would not be a problem. It appears they were as adept as most hunter gatherers. . . *Some Neanderthals were vegetarians who used natural forms of penicillin and aspirin as medicine* *‘Ap... more »

What dung beetles are teaching us about the genetics of sex differences

Cris Ledón-Rettig, Postdoctoral Fellow of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington at Science + Technology – The Conversation - 1 day ago
Picture a lion: The male has a luxuriant mane, the female doesn’t. This is a classic example of what biologists call sexual dimorphism – the two sexes of the same species exhibit differences in form or behavior. Male and female lions pretty much share the same genetic information, but look quite different. We’re used to thinking of genes as responsible for the traits an organism develops. But different forms of a trait – mane or no mane – can arise from practically identical genetic information. Further, traits are not all equally sexually dimorphic.
