I'm a retired science and health teacher and tutor (taught 1967 to 2012), and a father of two successful, independent adults (one step-, one that I'm in touch with often). I'm a grandpa to one grand-son and one grand-daughter .

I consider myself quite fit, and healthy! Full head of hair, and close to ideal weight. I get a workout in every day! Sweating is in my daily -book!

I do volunteer work a local botanical garden that's famous having the biggest/best Bonsai collection in America!.

Search Botanical garden in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

I've been there since 2016, focusing on the veggie garden.

See my pics of me working the veggies and helping with the Garden of Lights!

Invasive lanternflies want to take over the U.S. [inhabitat.com]
Robecology comments on Aug 5, 2021:
With the climate shift, the increase of greenhouse gases and the growing population, it's inevitable that there will be more invasive insects, stronger mosquitoes with longer "seasons" and all sorts of subtle changes - for the worse - to our environment. It won't be just the oceanside cities that are in peril. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRLCUdWuyng

I've developed a more passive POV on this...it does appear that we're growing too fast (150 more births than deaths, per minute) and adding too many waste gases (tons per second) to slow down the inevitable... Everyone talks about "saving the earth" or "the earth's vital signs show danger" but really it's just us...Earth will breathe a sigh of relief when - not if - we go. And the Christians who relish in the "rapture" are just eating up all these end-times signs... https://www.worldometers.info

Troll Head, the new name I'm giving to individuals that for no reason make rude or nasty comments ...
Robecology comments on Aug 2, 2021:
So you're being a "Troll head" to complain about "Troll-heads"? OK...but please realize that you're just on a "name-calling" rant....so you are being "Troll-ish yourself. Here's my POV on that. It's name calling. It's what you do when you don't have a good reason to dislike what someone says..so you just "name call" them. It's what you do when you have no good counter-argument. But those of us who've been educated in the process of debate categorize the "troll heads" and other name callers to the lowest strategy or form of debate. And If you've ever participated in a debate on an academic level - you learn that name-calling is not only the "lowest strategy" - it's what those with no data, no support for their POV do. Those of us who've taught "Debate" give those who name call an "F" for their effort. If they continue to name-call (or be "troll-heads as you suggest) they are asked to withdraw from the class...they're showing no effort to change, or adapt to the style of academic debate. Allow me to share the "Debate Pyramids". I'm sharing several that I've used. I hope you find them useful.

We're growing.... 150 more births, than deaths, per minute. 9000 more per hour. Continue the math and you'll discover that's around 79 million more this year than last year. As an Ecologist-Demographer I've learned that that simple fact implies that we are accelerating towards extinction. Actually " What does it mean for the planet?" It means that the planet will get a sigh of relief when we're gone. It means bad things for us....but good things for the planet. https://www.worldometers.info

Same old problem
Robecology comments on Jul 29, 2021:
BTW; Someone asked me..."why do we who are vaccinated (or immune due to having the illness and growing our own resistance) have to still wear masks? The "why" is a bit of a science thing....but if you can stay with me; 1. Viruses depend on warm, moist bodies. 2. Humans are excellent viral harbors. 3. Fortunately - in our bloodstream are many chemical "antibodies" (not bodies...but dissolved chemicals) that are there either because we created them or got vaccines to be protected from them - so once the viruses enter our blood...they're dissolved (not "killed" as they're not technically "living"). 4. We who are vaccinated CAN CARRY, AND SHARE VIRUSES THAT CAN KILL OTHER HUMANS - They stay "alive" (read active or able to penetrate living cells) because they're 'hitching a ride" on us...in our saliva, in our mucus. They can't "reproduce" because of the "antibodies" in our blood system. 5. Hence if we are vaccinated we might not let the viruses penetrate our blood....but they CAN AND DO EXIST FOR SHORT TIMES WITHIN US. WE CAN CARRY THE VIRUS FROM AN INFECTED PERSON HOME - AND GIVE THAT VIRUS TO A FRIEND, OR FAMILY MEMBER -EVEN IF IT DOESN'T ATTACK US! 6.Thus we should wear masks because there's a lot of idiots who for some reason or another are not vaccinated - and are thus possibly loaded with COVID19 (and many other) viruses - who can then "loan us" a virus that we might infect others with...even though we are immune. Please - you med people and other science pros - correct me if I'm wrong? If not, copy and share. We have to knock this thing out. So far we're not doing that well.
Got a point there
Robecology comments on Jul 28, 2021:
Point taken. We used to have a purpose to our fitness...now it's a goal in itself. We don't strive to be fit because we need it to thrive...(we're no longer hunter-gatherers). But a few of us strive for fitness because that in itself is a survival measure. I'm beginning to get the impression that those who strive to be fit through daily exercise is diminishing. But exercise has been diminished as a factor of importance in society. Sad.

There's already evolved two tougher, harder-to-kill variants, the Delta and Lambda versions. Let's get off the "where did it come from" and get on the "where is it going" strategy.

The whole vaccine thing is a scientific breakthrough on two fronts; 1. It's the first time they've used mitochondrial Ribo nucleic Acid (M.R.N.A.) to create the anti-bodies to fight the antigen (COVID19). 2. It was done in phenomenally record setting time - although Corona-virus research had been going on since 2003. Vaccines usually take several years to evolve...this one was quickly created but cautiously tested...the first one (Pfizer) without US funds - but required CO2 deep freezing....the deep-freezing requirements were gradually removed. It's these two phenomena that has the uneducated in the world hesitant to partake in the vaccine. But Fauci and Biden have been working hard to educate the public about it's efficacy and safety. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7371592/ and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/safety-of-vaccines.html Please; consider sharing this and any of these articles with anyone who's hesitant.

Robecology comments on Jul 14, 2021:
Meh. Much too far away for us to be concerned about. We already have a large contingent of intelligent mammals on this planet that we generally ignore. They evolved no clothes. no medicines, no schools. no hospitals, no funerals, no churches...all they do is eat, play and make love all day. And yet we ignore them...and if it wasn't for their volunteer participants at "Sea world" we'd probably be hunting them for food.

Lifeguarding is a thankless job. 99.99% of the time you do nothing...then all of a sudden you have to rescue someone who had an unexpected health crisis in the water. Been there, done that.

(What the freakin' hell is Sen Blackburn talking about here?
Robecology comments on Jul 10, 2021:
Bill _ You know darn well that Brackburn is an Off-the-wall eccentric Republican who fears/hates "socialism" so she creates concepts that - to you and I are unlikely - but to her constituents are very likely - possibilities. She was born in Mississippi, is a senator for Tennessee. She opposes abortion. That alone should tell you how naive she is. I"m sure she's #religulous. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marsha_Blackburn
What a great idea
Robecology comments on Jul 10, 2021:
Great idea! Too many "throw out" leftover herbs. .Here's another way to use left over citrus skins. After you've ground the juice out of lemons or limes or oranges, put the skins in a food processor or blender. Grind them up - then use a sanitary cloth to squeeze out more juice. Be sure to use the juice soon, or freeze it...or mix it with some Vodka or gin.
I am unable to believe in a God susceptible to prayer.

Robecology comments on Jul 9, 2021:
Always wise to plant trees; but don't think that you're doing much to help global warming. trees cover at most 40% of the land...which is only 30% of the entire surface of "Earth" (actually - then - a misnomer for our planet). 40% of 30% is only 12%.
I stand corrected

Indeed - we owe a debt of gratitude to the anti-vax anti-government-control folk who passed on simply because they didn't want to get vaccinated! Fauci: More than 99% of people who died from COVID-19 in June were not vaccinated https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/561585-fauci-more-than-99-of-people-who-died-from-covid-19-in-june-were-not?rl=1
Do you think that human genetics which gave us higher levels of abstract thought and language, also ...
Robecology comments on Jul 9, 2021:
The question isn't clear. Genetics is the science that explains natural selection and evolution. Can some families select behaviors that make them more "vulnerable to indoctrination by irrational beliefs' - as in becoming religious or superstitious? Sure. But these behaviors - while leading to more procreation - are also leading to less survival skills - more obesity, less health consciousness, more unwise decisions that might enrich their wealth but not necessarily their survival nor their health. In other words....the religious are less likely to survive as well as the un or non-religious. Look at what's happening to the COVID delta victims. Over 99% of them are those who intentionally avoided the vaccine - some would say for political reasons, others for pseudo-science reasons (fear of complications - that have been proven inaccurate), and still others...I'm afraid it's those who are "vulnerable to indoctrination by irrational beliefs"... Read; "Fauci: More than 99% of people who died from COVID-19 in June were not vaccinated" https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/561585-fauci-more-than-99-of-people-who-died-from-covid-19-in-june-were-not?rl=1 In some population-genetic studies it's been proven that the thought levels of the organisms studied didn't seem to be relevant to their survival...but these studies were done with fruit flies, rats, or ants...none that I know of were done with humans.

Who says astrology is bunk?
Robecology comments on Jul 8, 2021:
A useful pseudo science - and a fun way to help "facilitate" introductions in the 60's and 70's (what's your sign? LOL!)....but science has finally put astrology in it"s place.
What are you really afraid off?
Robecology comments on Jul 8, 2021:

To paraphrase Labour chancellor Dennis Healey . Tax them until the pips squeak
Robecology comments on Jul 8, 2021:
I concur with the strategy to raise taxes on the wealthy...and I'm so disheartened by Elon Musk's pursuit of living on Mars.... But as a Tesla owner since 2013...and just a retired public school teacher with no "gifts' nor inheritances to speak of....I must speak out for Elon Musk. He's different than Branson and Bezos. He's committed to changing the energy use from Fossil fuels to Renewables.https://www.tesla.com/about He's not greedy....two of the 3 top cars re-percentage made in America - are Teslas. He's opened his Patents to all other Electric Vehicle (EV) car makers. In his geekish manor, he worded his statement in the language of foreign =-made gamers. https://www.tesla.com/blog/all-our-patent-are-belong-you. He's not a player like Branson and Bezos...he's a good father to his 6 kids. https://www.madeformums.com/news/elon-musk-children-bio/ I share this same sentiment whenever I see Musk attacked on FB - either by the union people (who hate him because - while he offers a much lower salary than most car makers...he offers much higher benefits). So - to summarize; I agree with the higher taxes...but we need to cut Elon some slack. .
Teachers’ Unions Are Pushing Back Against Attacks on Anti-Racist Education
Robecology comments on Jul 8, 2021:
I'm not strong on union support...but I was in the teacher's union for most of my 45 years as a teacher; so I'm glad to read this. To answer your question - there's not much we as individuals can do but speak out, contact our lawmakers, and post intelligent, unoffensive yet logical reasoning. So take a look at this meme; copy and share it...please;
For those people that actlike all corona viruses are the same, they've been in the human population ...
Robecology comments on Jul 5, 2021:
The point to make about viruses is that they need more warm-blooded 'alive" hosts to reproduce and mutate at a faster rate, They have 1 whole lifetime in 8 hours....they can literally become grandparents - without sex - in 24 hours/1 day. The stronger strain of COVID is already raising death rates in many nations who have less than 1% vaccinated. Add to that our growth...."only" a 1% growth rate (projected to continue growing for 70-90 more years) but 1% of the present population of 7.88 billion is 78,8 million more "virus-growing mechanisms" per year...that comes out to 150 more births, than deaths, per minute. The math is 78.8 m divided by 365.25, (days per year) then by 24 (hours per day) then by 60 (minutes per hour) Things are looking very good for viruses...very bad for humans. https://www.worldometers.info
Diseased ones, at that!

Kissing after oral, Yes or No?
Robecology comments on Jul 5, 2021:
Sanitation is key here. I was reading a Dave Barry novel on the beach....and a character in the story - Seth - was trying to convince his bachelor party not to get a stripper...mainly because at the last time they got together...the stripper had all the right moves, and the right physique...she just...."stank". I just started the novel....so I don't know how far his pleas went...or whether is possé listened to him...maybe you know? Anyway....sanitation is key. No guys...except "stanky" ones...like to kiss after oral....or any other body part contacts...for that matter... Now if a "stanky" guy gets it on with a "stanky" woman...then all bets are off...
Yes, if done right!
Robecology comments on Jul 5, 2021:
One burn, one jerk...and our whole sex gets a bad rap! Wow! Talk about prejudice!
