This is not another graphene article , and its also not (just) yet another break through press release in solar cell technology.

As well as creating much thinner and lighter semiconductors than silicon, phosphorene has light emission properties that vary widely with the thickness of the layers, which enables much more flexibility for manufacturing.
Scientists studying thin layers of phosphorus have found surprising properties that could open the door to ultrathin and ultralight solar cells and LEDs. The team used sticky tape to create single-atom thick layers, termed phosphorene, in the same simple way as the Nobel-prize winning discovery of graphene. Unlike graphene, phosphorene is a semiconductor, like silicon, which is the basis of current electronics technology.

This is so cool. 3MBs no mains no landlines, just simple sat dish and a calibration app ...
 
They are also going (or even are) using Cubesat tech.

Not only in the USA either...
 
Great post on one of the silent frauds being perpetrated to preserve our unrepresentative two party monopoly.

ALEXANDRA SHAPIRO: How presidential debates have rigged the #election
#politics
Suppose Congress passed a law that said only Democrats and Republicans can ever be president of the United States. You don’t need to be a lawyer to know this would be unconstitutional — and completely antithetical to what a democracy is supposed to be about. In our form of government, people get to choose their leaders.

OH bugger.
So  seems that "Self Control" is a winner so long as you live in a culture where self control is a winner ?
Other wise ... its not all good.
Premature ageing  and  susceptibility to all those "affluence" diseases...
IT BEGAN with some marshmallows. In the 1960s Walter Mischel, a psychologist then working at Stanford University, started a series of experiments on young children....

Hi Mr Jay.
I am now giving Vaping up as well.
(vaping for some 2 years)

I did exactly as you suggested rolling down the Nico level to about the equivalent of 3 mg.
(which is almost zero delivered in real life)

Now I just have the hands busy and psychological issues :)

So far 4 days in and all good... well um mostly.

Meanwhile my plans for world domination proceed a pace ... Looking for a cheap taut pallet wrapper for a cabinet and a front bench or two ,  looks like  I have helicopter  OK ... 

 Sure its going just  F I N E !

The Gypsies are OS in the UK (London Edinburgh) and next week Canada (I think).
Meantime a nice folky tune shot in glorious (Winter) surrounds.

X species alarm call recognition ...
While its widely used in the wild even by humans (!) ,
(I have avoided plenty of snakes and followed Goanna's by listening to birds, also I suspect visa versa but thats a story for another time )
This research shows that birds can learn new alarms at least by repeated exposures.
There's an emerging population of bilingual birds in Australia, thanks the work of researchers at the Australian National University.

Yeah its not only Lyre Birds and cockies...
I used to run to answer the phone about 5 times a day. (never could spot the culprit !)

Quote:
Our new ocean explorer, RV Investigator, has discovered four extinct volcanoes 200 kilometres off the coast of Sydney, hidden under almost five kilometres of ocean. The calderas are estimated to be over 50 million years old, putting even the most seasoned Sydney socialites to shame.
Investigator was actually in the area on other business – searching for the nursery grounds of larval lobsters – when it came across the cluster. The ship is constantly mapping the sea floor as it travels, opening up a previously undiscovered and unknown world. Our previous research vessel could only map to 3000 metres, missing important geological features like the calderas. Investigator can map the ocean to any depth (although it’s yet to find James Cameron).
/endquote
emphasis mine.
We’ve discovered Sydney's hottest new locale: a cluster of ancient volcanoes hidden 5km below the sea.
