I'm reading a book called Dark Emu Black Seeds by Bruce Pascoe. He has researched indigenous management of the land pre- colonial Australia. They were not Hunter gathers and grew all sorts of crops and fish and kangaroo farmed. Crops and native seed production were destroyed by white man trying European farming and introducing hard hooved stock. Many first explorers recorded their observations but not recognised by settlers.

There's a saying that adding mass to the wheel of a bike has twice the impact compared to adding the same mass to the frame. Why would that be true?

Yea it's called "rotating Mass" Anyone that's been into auto racing or knows about transmissions can tell you. Getting rid of rotating mass, will improve your horsepower to weight ratio. Bottom line: you go faster!

Initial thoughts on Google IO 2016
- Assistant. Looks great and is a natural evolution of Google Now and Search
- Allo and Duo. Might be cool but very few people will end up downloading the apps and you can't chat to yourself. Keep using Hangouts.
- Google Home. Looks good but I don't think think everyone will want one of these.
- Android Wear 2.0. Good amount of evolution on existing.
- Android N. Few extra tweaks to Android.

Fancy going to all that trouble. Reminds me of the player pianos where you had to peddle to get the music rolls rolling and the piano playing. Nice piece of music

New report - "Processed foods labelled “low fat”, “lite”, “low cholesterol” or “proven to lower cholesterol” should be avoided at all costs, and people with type 2 diabetes should eat a fat-rich diet rather than one based on carbohydrates."
