Agree. Governors have little substantial contribution against heavy expense at the cost of taxpayers . These posts should be abolished or made less ostentatious to cut expense.

I wonder if they will do it in India too.

nuclear plants are better than constructing big dams
 
I hope that this image travels the world …

"While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”
What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …

But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”."

we are made of nothingness.
Kevin Kelly originally shared:
 
I live about 2 km from the ocean. I rode down on my bike today and just hung out on the shore to watch the waves crashing over each other. This is what it looked like on our beach in Pacifica. As I sat on some rocks watching the waves roll in and the wind whipping the foam at the top, and the sun shinning through the crest of the wave, I was overcome with the certainty that everything I was seeing was immaterial. It was real, but it was not solid. Despite the hard rocks I was sitting on, despite the gritty sand on my feet, despite the pounding water in the surf, despite the force of wind on my cheeks, despite my knowledge of how fatal the ocean can be to life, despite all these clear and unmistakeable signals, it was (and still is) clearer yet, that at their essences, all these things are really made of something intangible, without weight, something close to what we think of as information.

Water is made of oxygen and hydrogen. What is a oxygen atom made of? Not oxygen, but of smaller particles, like protons and electrons. And what are they made of? Mostly space. In a lecture I just watched, Brian Cox gave a figure for how empty an atom is. It is 99.9999999999999% space. And what is that remaining 0.000000000000001% non-space made of? Nothing that we would call hard, or material. It is some wavicle, some quantum superposition, some intangible force. Maybe it is simply information. We actually don't know what matter is at the bottom, but we do know it is fungible into energy and information.

So in a very real sense, the drops of water splashed up by waves thundering on the beach before me, and the sand churned up from the beach, are just patterns of the immaterial. Water and sand are real patterns just as the waves are real patterns; but they are patterns of a kind of nothingness.

I know the monks on the tops of mountains have been saying the real world is immaterial for eons, but the difference is that now we say can it precisely, and in such a scientific way that we can predict what else we should see if this view is correct. So far we can't use ordinary words to describe what this fundamental intangible is. Wavicles don't mean anything. Neither does the concept of a quantum particle being in two places at once. All we have is the language of mathematics, which few can speak. And what the maths say is that the tons of water rolling in under the light of a sun 93 millions miles away and pounding the sand in front of me is all really mostly nothing, and the little that is not nothing, is really just another kind of nothing.

This is hard to see at sunset on the beach along the edge of the Pacific Ocean. But this afternoon I could see it.

most of the american chips and processed food snacks contain this artificial flavoring mostly derived from processed pig fat (a gooey leftover after extracting pig meat)

I agree life is commonplace in the galaxy, but intelligent life I got doubts. Intelligent life on earth depended on so many fortuitous circumstances. In all of 100s of millions of years of existence of multi cellular life on earth, intelligent life evolved only once. mostly by chance.

chilling stuff, milk consumed in US is contaminated. Fox News pulled a story which was critical of Monsanto due to pressure from Monsanto.
Mike Elgan originally shared:
 
Why you can't trust the food you buy at the supermarket.

If you have 10 minutes to spare, you can learn how giant food corporations profit from adulterated food, and silence the media and the US government.

It's not a new video -- it's from 2008. But if you think you can trust the food corporations, media and USDA, you really need to watch this.

(This is not Fox-bashing. All the major news organizations function the same way.)

nice place, noise free, good views and calm. Except for lack of public bus stop nearby, I guess you can't have it all :)
