Robecology comments on Feb 17, 2021:

I had almost the exact same reaction to the Phizer shots...an ache in the shot (right) arm for a few days. I'm a total gym user..and I could barely pull myself up for a couple of days. I'm 75. The second shot had a lot less soreness...but it was still there. Happy to be double vaccinated.

Mars In 4K [youtube.com]
Robecology comments on Feb 15, 2021:
It's bitter cold. There's no Oxygen. The water that probably exists is now deep underground. Since the core is no longer molten and plastic, there's no magnetosphere...so deadly Gamma radiation rains down on the surface. Why we are even considering human trips to Mars is beyond me. It might have been alive and watery eons ago...perhaps our DNA even got started there. But there's clearly no life there now...and no reason to visit there - let alone colonize it.

For those who would like to have a better understanding of bitcoin. [thehustle.co]
Robecology comments on Feb 14, 2021:
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.

If you "secretly hope" that you will have a sense of existence in another organism...say, a plant, an insect, a creature, even...in the distant future....another human...then you can have what scientists call "reasonable odds" But the other stuff?

How We Grow Food Could Determine Whether 28,000 Species Can Survive: [ecowatch.com]
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 day...to 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. I don't look forward to the approaching extinction that might happen...rather soon...we can fix this...it's called family planning...or we can avoid the fix and suffer.... https://www.worldometers.info

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 long...so 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). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Future_Shock Sad about your grandfather and those #religulous children of hers...

The first lesson of economics is scarcity; there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all ...
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?

@NoMagicCookie These last few years have been a revelation regarding your last comment; asking us if we "noticed a difference in the intellectual and logical degradation". It's not so much, I'm afraid, to admit, a degredation as a revelation - that there really are a large number of profoundly ignorant folk out there. It's like they didn't degrade to profound ignorance; it's just that some of us became more aware of it (many call it becoming "woke" or "awakened").

IVF seems key to saving species: [theguardian.com]
Robecology comments on Jan 22, 2021:
What's cool is this; He is the progeny of an egg from a captive mother and sperm from a wild father – a hybrid from parents who were both dead. Olaf is not the first amphibian to be born via IVF – (in-vitro fertilization) that has been happening for years – but he is the first of his species to be born from sperm that was frozen and thawed. What's not cool, IMO, is that he's "named" (Olaf) and described as "cute" etc. This is serious business, trying to rescue an almost extinct species. I don't feel that seriousness in this article. As the authors themselves note; "One reason that conservationists want to boost the numbers of amphibian populations is because diseases are devastating them in the wild. Kouba says cryo-preservation has a place as a last-ditch effort to bank the remaining genetic material from a dying species. Let me add a caveat that was in the article; • This article was amended on 13 May 2020. An earlier version incorrectly stated that Olaf the toad was the first amphibian to be born using frozen sperm. He was in fact the first of his species to be born via that method. Thanks, @Theresa_N for sharing this.

Robecology comments on Jan 20, 2021:
The "French Press" maker is a bit messy - but can make a very satisfying cuppa Joe. If you're a drip person, consider going to the fine-mesh re-useable gold plated filters..they leave your coffee a little cloudy (like the French press does) and they're re-useable....which I prefer. Then you can wake up to a fresh brewed pot that you set up the night before (assuming you have a timer on your coffee-maker). They're available in both the cone and basket shapes. The cone shape has less plastic and more gold mesh for us "purists". Filtered water seems to make a better cup. Keep your machine clean. Cuisinarts come with a filter. Scuz, and bacterial film will form after a few weeks/months of using without cleaning..... Experiment with different mixes of Decaf, regular, and flavored . My present favored combo is half decaf half hazelnut. Sometimes I use the grinder and enjoy fresh ground; but don't notice a significant difference... I found a vacuum container for my coffees, and keep them in the fridge.

Per capita, the highest cancer rate is in Australia; https://www.wcrf.org/dietandcancer/cancer-trends/data-cancer-frequency-country Per capita, the highest. autism. rate is in Hong Kong; https://www.statista.com/statistics/676354/autism-rate-among-children-select-countries-worldwide/ Be aware; it's our overall growth rate that's not only causing our lifetime limit to level off (the U.S. is presently leveling off at age 81) - it's our proximity to each other. All of us are closer - so we share more diseases faster, and the diseases we share evolve more quickly. This social distancing thing is working, as are masks and vaccines...but the next pandemic will make this one look like a "walk in the park". We will go extinct -it's not a matter of "if" it's a matter of when. https://www.worldometers.info
My favorite Billionaire takes the lead. [electrek.co]
Robecology comments on Jan 20, 2021:
I have lots of interest in this man. He's said and done things that no other CEO has ever done. He's developed the Tesla motor company, then went on to develop recycleable rockets (SpaceX) then he pioneered. Solar shingles, then he pioneered underground tunneling. Most recently he's launched close to 1000 satellites each capable of transmitting the internet to the entire world...which he insists that - like GPS - should be free. In each case he's made all his patents - any discoveries that were unique to his products - available for free. No fees required. He's that interested in promoting the evolution of humanity to a higher level. Here's a great video he did at the Sorbonne in 2015 that gave him even more credibility. The "dumbest experiment" he's referring to is America's push to keep mining and selling fossil fuels and fuel using materials. BTW; The main reason he's gone to # 1 billionaire is the phenomenal growth of TSLA. Google it. Invest in them. In a few years - or sooner - you'll be able to cash out the profits and buy yourself a Tesla cash. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKCuDxpccYM=IwAR3ttXRoZE4TH2OI4VDw1qediNVGMWH9IU1wecWO3GMKYVCrtyGfgDLpMEw
It's okay if you are white and a trump supporter.

Today I watched him leave for Florida. I'm sincerely hoping that the legal folk keep pursuing him...I doubt they will but - I can hope....
I narc’d on my FB friend who was in DC yesterday.
Robecology comments on Jan 20, 2021:
@Unicorn1824 I don't call that "narcing". I call that doing a patriotic favor to the America most of us love. Thank you for reporting her; you not only did no wrong...you helped to strengthen the Constitution and the American way. I thank you.
Happy Thursday evening Everyone! If you saw yourself as an animal, what would you be?
Robecology comments on Jan 20, 2021:
I kinda don't like these 'after thought" questions (I call them the "coulda-woulda-shoulda" comments...but I fell in love with Falcons...Peregrines - in fact. Having been a long time student and devotee to professor Heinz Meng at SUNY New Paltz; the man pioneered the Peregrine's recovery in the North-eastern U.S.; even got them nesting on skyscrapers to help control the pidgeon populations there. I adopted the "Falcon" logo as my call name when I was in to CB...and have generally loved the stories connected to them.
What to do if you're abducted!?
Robecology comments on Jan 20, 2021:
I clicked on it...far too much info to bother reading. Being a scientist I know #1. They've never visited #2. They wouldn't bother "abducting" if they did. #3.There are obviously civilizations out there....they are just far too far away to bother coming to "drop in"...it's obviously easier to simply send messages first.

Yea...it's pretty much down hill after that...
Do I like coffee?
Robecology comments on Jan 20, 2021:
Why is that? I'm sitting here wondering why I can't drink coffee all day, or towards the evening..it has such a pleasant mouth feel...and then the high creeps in...love it!
Re: New strains of COVID, it may be a long summer.
Robecology comments on Jan 19, 2021:
The movies "Outbreak" and "Contagion" were popular because there was a strong element of reality in both of them. I'm afraid we're closing in on extinction. A combination of more people on the planet (150 more births, than deaths, per minute, 216,000 more per day, 1,512,000 per week) plus the rapid evolution of the viruses make COVID19 look like a walk in the park. Another analogy is "the tip of the iceberg". Keep wearing those masks. Find out about vaccines. Social distance. And consider being "child-free" not child-less"...or we are speeding up to that midnight "doom/extinction" event. Fact check my data here; and google "Outbreak /Contagion trailers" if you haven't seen either. https://www.worldometers.info
I have a suspicion that @Thirst2learn and @imback are the same person.

Robecology comments on Jan 19, 2021:
I was particularly saddened by losing Sean Connery; and the movie I remember him best in - was a relatively recent one; Medicine Man". It also introduced me to slow-motion zip-lines - and Lorraine Brocco appeared in it as well. He's missed; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQs9NrHc7qo
My conversation with my sister tonight: (The steak was wonderful.)
Robecology comments on Jan 19, 2021:
The filet mignon is from the small end of the tenderloin area of the animal. This is non-weight bearing and not toughened by exercise, resulting in extremely tender meat. The name is French for “cute filet” with “filet” meaning thick, boneless slice and mignon meaning “dainty.” https://mobile-cuisine.com/did-you-know/filet-mignon-fun-facts/
A great perk if you ask me! Lol!!!

Obesity isn't a calorie problem, it's a hormone problem: [theguardian.com]
Robecology comments on Jan 17, 2021:
Good article; but the headline and comment is misleading. He goes on to suggest that it's not so much an issue of counting calories as the need to reduce carbohydrates - breads, and sugars. Good topic; I taught health as an adult education program for many years. Check this out; http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/map_of_the_week/2013/04/obesity_in_america_cdc_releases_gif_of_epidemic_over_time.html

Interesting Covid related question

That advice to drink eight, eight-ounce glasses of water each day?
Robecology comments on Jan 17, 2021:
It's better to err on too much than not enough H2O. Too much = frequent "pit stops". not enough...prime candidate for a variety of diseases. https://www.baycare.org/en/services/primary-care/water-too-much-not-enough-and-just-right
Found this on my Facebook feed this morning.
Robecology comments on Jan 17, 2021:
Good one! copied...(and I'lll no doubt share it on FB. Here we're preaching to the choir!
Aren't you sad that you will not be able to witness the future science and technology discoveries?
Robecology comments on Jan 16, 2021:
All it takes is some imagination. Zero-gravity hotels circling earth. Earth on total wind, battery, solar and hydro power. Population reduced and leveled off No burning of any fuels. This tune is one of my favorites by Steely Dan - written in the 70's! I.G.Y. Steely Dan Standing tough under stars and stripes We can tell This dream's in sight You've got to admit it At this point in time that it's clear The future looks bright On that train all graphite and glitter Undersea by rail Ninety minutes from New York to Paris Well by seventy-six we'll be A.O.K. What a beautiful world this will be What a glorious time to be free Get your ticket to that wheel in space While there's time The fix is in You'll be a witness to that game of chance in the sky You know we've got to win Here at home we'll play in the city Powered by the sun Perfect weather for a streamlined world There'll be spandex jackets one for everyone What a beautiful world this will be What a glorious time to be free On that train all graphite and glitter Undersea by rail Ninety minutes from New York to Paris (More leisure for artists everywhere) A just machine to make big decisions Programmed by fellows with compassion and vision We'll be clean when their work is done We'll be eternally free yes and eternally young What a beautiful world this will be What a glorious time to be free https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ueivjr3f8xg
I shoulda listened...
