"Researchers have discovered two seafloor gateways that could allow warm ocean water to reach the base of Totten Glacier, East Antarctica's largest and most rapidly thinning glacier. The discovery probably explains the glacier's extreme thinning and raises concerns about how it will affect sea level rise".

Whether or not you like the nsfw stuff what google is doing is nasty. Read the link about the damage they're going to do. Why?
Yep, free service so suck it, but little notice and disappear the already marginalised. Not nice.
 
"Every Blogger user behind an "adult content warning" page was told Monday by Google to delete sexually explicit content, or find their blog removed from every form of access except invited, registered users.

Until today, Google's Blogger platform previously allowed "images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity," and stated that "Censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression."

That changed on a whim Monday when Google ripped the rug out from under its previously-compliant Blogger users, who were told they'd be disappeared if Google decided their blogs contain "sexually explicit or graphic nude images or video." (...)"
Summary:In an abrupt reversal of policy, Google will soon disappear blogs on its Blogger platform that don't conform to its new anti-adult policies.

Humblebundle books at a price you can afford
 
Have I mentioned the recent Humble Bundle yet here on G+?

It's your chance to get over 100 dollars of DRM-Free ebooks for super cheap.

What's more, a chunk of the proceeds will go to my charity, Worldbuilders.

There are some great books in there by great authors. Including one of my favorite books of all time...

It's a limited time offer, so you might want to head over there and check it out sooner rather than later.

Spread the word,

pat


https://www.humblebundle.com/books
In celebration of the publisher's 20th anniversary, we proudly present $96 worth of sci-fi, fantasy and horror in the Humble Subterranean Press Book Bundle.

Welcome to the future. Particularly if you live in California
Brazilians are hoarding water in their apartments, drilling homemade wells and taking other emergency measures to prepare for forced rationing that appears likely and could leave taps dry for up to five days a week because of a drought. In São Paulo, the country's largest city with a metropolitan area of 20 million people, the main reservoir is at just 6 percent of capacity with the peak of the rainy season now past. Other cities in Brazil's heav...

Can't find the article I want now.

But some of the outrage of state water sources california relies on are stressed as well.

But either way farmers vs city for water seems to be a perennial Californian issue.

Donut is a terrible material for a bun. A waffle makes far more sense and can still have sweet syrup - but only on the inside.
