#Millennials are a Myth!
The expensive quest to discover what millennials want misses two things: Each is an individual, and collectively they are much like other generations.

The Lancet article stirs up low-salt diet controversy.

The prestigious medical journal The Lancet has been attacked for publishing an academic paper that claimed eating too little salt could increase the chance of dying from a heart attack or stroke. Researchers from the Population Health Research Institute in Canada, studied more than 130,000 people from 49 different countries on six continents and concluded people should consume salt “in moderation”, rather than trying to reduce it in accordance...

Tweets to get longer - Hyperlinks will not count towards character limit!
There will soon be more to tweet about without the worry of links and photos taking up your precious thought-space, according to a new report.

As we see Mercury silhouetted by the immense Sun, it brings back that amazing passage by Carl Sagan:

"Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”

Will the 2016 election lead to a split between the conservatives and the Republican Party? #Shadesof1948

It is tempting to draw parallels with the 1948 election which led to the southern democrats splitting off and forming the Dixiecrat party and a huge change in the Democratic Party voter base.

While I would not ever even begin to compare Truman and Trump it is an interesting coincidence that both their names start with the same 4 letters! Truman permanently changed the face of the Democratic Party - will Trump do the same for the Republican Party or will it be a temporary aberration?

#zika  The threat becomes more real - >150 pregnant women in US (mainland) test positive for Zika ~1/3 asymptomatic (appears it was contracted during travel abroad).
The women being monitored now include those who had positive lab tests but no symptoms, according to the CDC. Also affected are 122 women in U.S. territories, almost all in Puerto Rico.
