I'm not sure where to stand on this. I love Maher...but I think he gets a little too extreme. This time he's not impressing me. My point is...why seek to blame someone or something? We're dealing with the virus as best we can. We need to accelerate the spread of COVID19 vaccines or the virus will mutate in to stronger forms - making the vaccinations feeble. Let's move ahead...let's not look back at who caused it.

They're considered a "pest species" here in Florida - and the wildlife people will come and get them and either "snuff" them or "relocate" them ( I hear they're fatty, and greasy, but tasty). Texas also has put them on the "pest" list.

COVID, and where did it come from. It's complicated. []
Robecology comments on Jul 22, 2021:
The "Where did it come from" is very "Republican". Let's not try to lay blame on a nation, or people for letting this disease get spread. Let's work to contain it, develop vaccines for it, fund the vaccines, get them spread world wide quickly - so we can make this disease extinct. 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.

I get how Trump's ill-gotten gains has turned a lot of folks off to the rich and the awful tax-structure; but how about we focus on fixing the tax structure....not calling them Douches.

Robecology comments on Jul 18, 2021:
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. and Please; consider sharing this and any of these articles with anyone who's hesitant. It's the hesitant ones who are not only helping the evolution of stronger strains (the "Delta" variant) but are putting our hospital workers through yet another hell.

Be sure to use the juice soon, or freeze it...or mix it with some Vodka or gin.

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" 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.

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. 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. He's not a player like Branson and Bezos...he's a good father to his 6 kids. 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. .

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.

Robecology comments on Jul 2, 2021:
Found a great follow-up to Psaki's defense of the Olympian Gwen Berry; as it turns out - her arguments for not wanting to stand during the anthem were very sound; from a FB article by Fareed Zakaria ; Last week, Gwen Berry finished third in a U.S. Olympic trials event and turned away in protest as the national anthem was played. In explaining her behavior, she said, “If you know your history, you’d know the full song of the national anthem". "The third paragraph speaks to slaves in America leaving "our blood . . . all over the floor". It’s disrespectful, and it does not speak for black Americans.” Wherever you come out on this issue, I will confess it forced me to learn more about “The Star-Spangled Banner” (which was adopted as the national anthem only in 1931). Its third verse does indeed make harsh reference to enslaved people who dared to try to escape their captivity, and the person who wrote it, Francis Scott Key, was a nasty racist. Americans care about history because the stakes are high.

I found that this wasn't the exact reasons they had for biking were they did - The headline they employed, which they later changed — “Millennial Couple Bikes Through ISIS Territory to Prove ‘Humans Are Kind’ and Gets Killed” — and other phrasing may have created the impression that the couple’s deaths were infused with irony and served as a kind of allegorical warning about cosmopolitan, liberal naivety: A progressive young American couple was killed in an Islamic State-claimed terrorist attack last month while on a bike trip around the world … Throughout the trip, the couple embraced the kindness of strangers and sought to demonstrate that people are inherently good. “You read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place,” Austin wrote. “People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil.” “I don’t buy it,” he continued. “Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own … By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind.” So... Based on their own written reflections posted during their trip, Austin and Geoghegan were not acting as liberal, idealist missionaries, despite the impression that the Pluralist headline might have created.

Miami condo collapse: Inspection reports note 'concrete deterioration'
Robecology comments on Jun 27, 2021:
Sad...and a bit frightening. I live in an 11 story condo on the beach...worry often about the foundation. Built over 40 years ago.
Their time is coming, with little to sympathy from me.

More warm, live human flesh for them to grow. 150 more humans on the planet every minute. 9000 more per hour. 216,000 more per day. We are the factories for these pseudo-living things. When we're gone they will continue to evolve on other species. If you think COVID19 delta is bad - wait a few years...they will get exponentially stronger and heartier. i predict COVID25 will spread far more easily, infect faster, and have a much higher lethality.
You wanted it, you got it.
