I'm glad both Tlaib and A.O.C. accosted him...maybe he passed on the "pressure" to Netanyahu. Sad to see what's going on there. FYI; To date,the United States has provided Israel $146 billion (current,or non-inflation-adjusted,dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. At present, almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance....." Do the math. From '48 until last November is over 72 years. That comes to over $5 million aid per day.

I think the most famous of Yogi's quotes that have been considered the height of levity was his comment; "It's not over until it's over" Baseball player and manager Yogi Berra (1925-2015) is often credited with, "It ain't over 'til it's over." The circumstance was 1973, when Berra was the New York Mets manager and saw the team come from behind in a crowded field to win the National League East pennant. This exact quote hasn't been found, but Berra did say in September 1973: https://www.barrypopik.com/index.php/new_york_city/entry/it_aint_over_til_its_over

Robecology comments on May 16, 2021:
@WilliamCharles Two issues complicate the "Two-state agreement" 1. Population pressure. Both Israel and the Palestine "neighborhoods" within Israel are experiencing rapid growth...as is most of the world. More people have to struggle harder for fewer resources and less space....and their egos stand in the way of family planning...especially in the middle east. The world population is growing at only 1% per year; but that comes to 150 more births, than deaths, per minute; https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ 2. The US has been sending Israel over $5 million per day for going on 73 years. To date (this was given to the U.S.Congress on Nov 16th, 2020...donations started in 1948), the United States has provided Israel $146 billion (current, or noninflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding." https://fas.org/sgp/crs/mideast/RL33222.pdf So America is financially committed to Israel. Unfortunately -- this makes peace very complicated, and very controversial. I hope you're right and I'm wrong....but the facts indicate this won't end well.

Robecology comments on May 13, 2021:
The answer has a lot to do with our pro-Israeli policy. We've been sending Israel over $5 million dollars per day for 72 years. We set them up with hundreds of nuclear-tipped warheads on submarines. We - the USA officials - are supporting a radical Zionism. Here's proof; "Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. Successive Administrations, working with Congress, have provided Israel with significant assistance in light of robust domestic U.S. support for Israel and its security; shared strategic goals in the Middle East; a mutual commitment to democratic values; and historical ties dating from U.S. support for the creation of Israel in 1948. To date, the United States has provided Israel $146 billion (current, or noninflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding." Do the math. You'll see what I said is accurate. And no one seems to want to do anything about it...or even acknowledge it.

Today China has a lower percentage living in extreme poverty than the US...So it worked for them....but again...we've all heard of the forced abortions. The embryos in the streets.

Of course, we are looking at "ancient light" or light produced billions of years ago. The "cosmological horizon" that we're concerned with is "Milk-dromeda" (go to minute 8 in the video) only because that is the likely fate of the Milky Way and Andromeda....that we'll combine in a few million years. By then....if we haven't gone extinct (which is clearly very likely)....perhaps we'll figure out how to travel faster than the speed of. light (warp speed - to you "trekkies").

A New Approach for Treating Obesity: Boosting Body Heat Production [scitechdaily.com]
Robecology comments on May 11, 2021:
They talked about raising the body's heat but they didn't go in to specifics; could it be a pill? a vaccine? An intravenous application? Not clear. But Let me say this about Obesity. It's an epidemic; and something needs to be done to help those lost in the addiction. I'm not confident that turning off the body's heat control/boosting heat production is the answer. What is clear is that obesity comes from forming dietary habits before we humans can walk and talk. Infants are fed what parents deem "comfort food"...or food that calms their child down. This in turn becomes solidly addictive...very likely for life. Breaking these habits are harder than breaking drug addictions; but if we can't figure out a way to do this then we will have more diabetes, more Cardio-vascular diet-induced illness, more obesity and shorter lives. Note. I mean no insult or disrespect in noting this; although I know some will take offense. Please don't do that. Know that it's my intention to help you find a way...besides IV or drugs....to solve your obesity. It was my problem for a while in my life, as well.

"The rich are different from you and me." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Robecology comments on May 9, 2021:
The "rich" have an interesting history. Many rich got it from clever family members who led the way. It's often exploitive in a way; Either with weapons, or religion, or energy, or technology. In ancient times it was those who used brut power to kill many early and organize clusters of friends to help him. It was almost always a "him"....it was the brute strength and the risqué nature of males who became wealthy. We are gathered here because we're agnostic....but it's clear to most of us that organizing a religion had its' profit motives as well. Most of us abhor the outrageous wealth of "the church". For centuries the richest were those who first came up with a stronger metal for weapons, a better cannon, a better machine gun, a better gun-powder. From the early Hittites who invented steel weapons to the Gattlin machine gun....history is littered with those who profited from wars. Wasn't it Alfred Nobel who invented T.N.T. - or was it gunpowder? It was only a few hundred years ago when it was those who figured out how to use/mine/ship coal, then oil instead of wood and, in the past few centuries, whale oils.. At first to light lamps - but then to fuel homes and factories. Edison and others perfected electrical transmission and use to run factories, and light streets and homes...and got rich doing so. Recently (100 years ago) it was those who put together transportation tricks (railroads, car makers, plane makers). Rockefeller and Flagler come to mind. Very recently (the last 20-30 years) it's been the tech wizards (Apple, IBM, computers, phones) and the food and/or sales/services distributors like the Waltons, (Walmart), Bezos (Amazon) and the Home Depot creators have been rewarded for their skills. Kudos to the creators of Wind energy, Electric cars, and electric storage - those getting rich in this area are also doing things to reduce the environmental impact of the previous inventors. Elon Musk comess to mind. These folks are getting rich - but they might be saving our species from extinction. Being a bit of a futurist, I'll venture a guess in to those who get rich in the future will figure out ways to recycle profitably, those who figure out good ways to get energy from waves and tides, and those who figure out the ways to produce mass transport that's totally not fuel-dependent. Google Boyan Slat. https://time.com/5389782/boyan-slat-plastic-ocean-cleanup/

I think he's so cool. He's obviously awkward. Obviously eccentric, and obviously a genius.

Excellent. I've recently fallen in love with two local restaurants that have offered this dis...one is called "Manatee Island Grill" the other is known as "Pietro's on the River"... Looking forward to trying this!!

Great. intro. I've been driving Tesla cars since 2013. I had car #4003...so I. was an early adherent. I've also made $$ by investing in TSLA. I'm sad that he's still on this gung-ho-to-Mars kick...but other than that - I consider myself a "fanboy".

Federal judge calls out Barr for lying, orders previously withheld documents released

I'll be watching to see if anything is done to Barr...He's probably laughing at the "ruling".
Potato + carrot = sweet potato Change my mind
Robecology comments on May 6, 2021:
Orange (Beta Carotene) dyes in foods are good for you....and both carrots and sweet potatoes are root-foods...as is a regular potato. White potatoes give you substantial carbs (starch) - so - if you combine the two it's like eating s sweet potato - nutritionally speaking. But Carrots lend themselves to juicing....sweet potatoes not so much. White potatoes need butter and spices to create a "taste" because they are otherwise bland...but I see where you're going with the argument. I won't try to change your mind.

This from a US Senator, how on earth do guys like this get elected?
Robecology comments on May 6, 2021:
Anyone with some wisdom (I used to say "common sense" - but I'm beginning to wonder).knows he DIDN'T ignore science...Trump was obviously very big on that...but Biden obviously respects science.
I am so stealing this quote. Well done Neil!

Robecology comments on May 4, 2021:
@kmaz -The fact is that there's probably millions of civilizations out there...in our galaxy alone...it's just that we're too far apart to even bother trying to chat. Our radio signals got strong enough to leave the atmosphere around 100 years ago. There's only 10 or 11 star/planetary systems within 100 light years of us. The closest one is 4.3 light years away; so assuming there's a rocky planet in the "godilocks" zone (not too close nor too far to have liquid water and thus a chance for life) then there's a likelihood that life might exist on a planet in that nearby world. There's actually a few within 100 light years that might have that ideal situation. Now assuming they evolved at the same rate we did (not likely) so they, too started sending radio waves out around 100 years ago....it would take 8.6 years for one round trip message to them. Since we haven't received any radio signals from any intelligent sources -yet...we can assume that there's no civilization with radio broadcast abilities on that - or any other - planet within 100 light years. Will we ever develop a way to fly faster than light? I doubt it...but I doubt it like I doubt the existence of a "god". I think it's just Not likely. That's why we're here...on Agnostic.com. So eventually... I do think we will detect an intelligent radio or TV signal some day...when we see a "Howdy Doody" TV show from a planet 50-60-70 light years away - it'll take that long - 50-60-70 years...to say "hello" to them. Get the point? It's going to be challenging carrying on a conversation. Oh...and when - not if, when... we get that intelligent radio signal...who's to say that they're not already extinct? And you're wondering about hand-dominance? You're not #religulous, are you?
