Smart move on that chimney extension. I see in one of the other images that it's a dense smoke coming out (wood? coal?). One more question...It appears that two clock hands are on the front face of one of the machines; One at 10:30 the other at 2:15....I assume they weren't working clocks...was that a way to signal times?

I feel a bit of a bias from this article. The author (Josh Rogan) leaves us hanging....but he's right...there's been no resolution. No one is sure of the source of this pandemic. Here's another POV from Bloomberg - which lends to lean more conservatively (note that they're both highly reliable- but Bloomberg sits a little higher and more to the right on this chart). They also leave us scratching our heads.

We tend to knock "internet" research...but there's smart ways and dependable sources to do web/internet research....and there's not so smart. Best/fastest guide? look at the 2-3-4 letters at the end. dot com sites depend on advertisers to pay for their sites. So do dot orgs....but to get "organization" web rights, you often have to be non profit. Then there's the dot edu's...for educational (non-profit). Now you're going to a dependable source. Dot govs are usually dependable....but you need to know the bias of the government source. Dot info is special, and rare. I've never known of any for-profit dot info's. And then there's your search tools, or search "engines". (I've never been comfortable with the "engine" descriptor.). Google is by far the most well known...but there are others. By all means -- research what you read - especially if you get that nagging feeling that it's not quite right. Then copy and paste the website. If you have images - especially graphs and charts - that helps...but don't forget to give the source for the graph or chart. Here's a "link" where you can fact-check me to see if what I "resurched" on the web is correct;

Native Americans ( I refuse to use the incorrectly named "indians") were shafted... but there's a lesson in the shafting. Even today's people in power (The Republicans, The #Religulous) are out to "shaft" or unfairly put down minorities/folks who are struggling/socially marginal people. But I aware and you won't get shafted. If you're aware that it's part of the culture at the time you deal better with it. Yes; Anglo-saxon/Caucasian took advantage of native Americans. Then Africans. And lately migrants and still those who are in the minority - be it women or even people of color. Deal effectively with those who would shaft you....just come to expect the attempts to shaft - and you won't be shafted.

The story is/was NOT that the wind generators (which only provide 20% for Texas energy anyway) failed. The point is not that wind generators work in Antarctica and other parts of the world...the point is that the Republicans in Texas voted to avoid Federal regulation of their equipment...which meant they were obligated, under fed guidelines - to winterize their equipment...and they cheaped out and didn't do that. On top of this; they were warned about this possibility in 2011.

William Gallagher, the photographer, was about to snap a photo. It would be just a so-so picture until Stevenson crossed his right leg over his left knee. It displayed a hole in the sole of his right shoe.

On Wednesday, power prices in Dallas and Fort Worth hit $8,800 per megawatt-hour (MWh), compared with the more typical average of roughly $26 per MWh. Over time, the state's grid operator, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), could impose higher costs to consumers to prepare for subsequent, similar events.

Problems with it. Bitcoin is a currency. Not a technology. Not an internet app. Not a tool. Just currency. It's basically a pyramid scheme. An increasing amount of folk on here and fB (I assume twitter, as well) pose a friendly "hi, how are you, I hear you have money"....and then the lure begins. If you want to invest in a growing stock...I recommend TSLA...the stock behind the Tesla electric vehicles (EV's) . Lucid - another E.V. is struggling to get in to a "public offering" and they have an EV with similar, but even more deluxe features than Tesla. But I recommend you stay away from Bitcoin - and there's lots of investors who, like Mitch, want you to get comfy with it...and buy in. Do your research. Search Tsla 1 month, 1 year, and 5 year graphs. Drive one. Then you'll know.

How We Grow Food Could Determine Whether 28,000 Species Can Survive: []
Robecology comments on Feb 7, 2021:
The root of the issue is our population growth. 150 more births, than deaths, per minute. 216,000 more per day 1,512,000 per week 78 million more per year. COVID19 might have put a dent in that number; I'm guessing it slowed us down to 76 million. More. Births than deaths...Growth in the world human population.In one year. and 10 species becoming extinct per make room for us.; from obscure ants with almost a different species in each section of forest to great whales - I'm lucky to be alive...and thankful to have made it to 75.

Are some people just not right for marriage?
Robecology comments on Feb 6, 2021:
When I read Alvin Toffler's future shock...what he explained to me (in the book) explains why we fall in and out - and back in - to marriage. It's the growing population, and the root cause of it...our increasing longevity. As he put it; 100 years ago there were far fewer people...and we didn't live as marriages were both shorter and the old fashioned "commitment" was much more real. Today we are doubling in population faster and faster. When I was born there were less than 3 billion on the planet; now we're approaching 8 billion. And longevity - while having leveled off recently...increased for decades during the late 20th century. So we meet more people today than ever before. We either grow similarly or grow differently faster today than ever before. Our tastes - in food, in habits, in friends - change -- faster than ever. So of course we easily marriage...and easily divorce. Of course it's not an easy process....but fewer are changing their names. More are doing prenuptial agreements. And more are finding that living by themselves works best. Not a bad thing...and as Toffler implied...if we hold to traditions then it will be a "future shock" that relationships are changing. (and yes; this was co-written with Alvin's spouse, Adelaide). Sad about your grandfather and those #religulous children of hers...

Robecology comments on Feb 3, 2021:
This - sadly - seems true. Most politicians know - or find out, eventually - that if they reduce scarcity and improve prosperity - a liberal/progressive POV, they invite an increase in the population growth rate. Do the opposite - improve scarcity and reduce prosperity - a Conservative/reactionary POV - and it's the greatest single factor that slows down the population growth. By that I mean the death rate might slow down a bit...people get leaner, eat more carefully, work harder, and are forced to have fewer kids...and coincidentally - they live longer. The birth rate slows down as well (although there's still growth - but at a reduced rate). The reduction of scarcity - improvement of prosperity (the Liberal POV) also reduces the Ecology/ recycling. It also raises the death rate (less focus on personal health), and raises the unhealthy/ obesity of a nation - But if more people are prosperous - they have more kids...and the population growth rate increases. So the Liberal POV...while reducing scarcity and improving prosperity - invites a higher death rate, but a much higher birth rate. Demographers know this. Insurance rate adjusters know this. Not many others do. This is a conundrum of Conservatives (who tend toward the latter relationship) and liberals (the former). Where do you draw the line?
