Monitoring Earth’s surface every day, ESA’s Proba-V minisatellite has had a ringside seat as the second largest lake in #Bolivia gradually dried up. Lake Poopó has now been declared fully evaporated. The three 100-m resolution Proba-V images shown here were acquired on 27 April 2014, 20 July 2015 and 22 January 2016 respectively.

Banishing Race from Genetics studies
The social concept of Race has no Biological support in science and adds more problems than it solves. While defenders of "race" claim that race is a proxy for diversity, it has no scientific basis. While ethnicity and ancestry may be proxies for various genetic factors, race fails to represent those variables. Indeed notions of race have caused misdiagnosis of diseases by physicians who associate various diseases with race. Time to develop more precise vocabulary and language to capture and represent human variations without bringing social and historical baggage.

Wikipedia: Indigenous Australians

Black[edit]  The term "blacks" has been used to refer to Indigenous Australians since European settlement.[16] While originally related to skin colour, the term is used today to indicate Aboriginal heritage or culture in general and refers to people of any skin pigmentation.[17] In the 1970s, many Aboriginal activists, such as Gary Foley, proudly embraced the term "black", and writer Kevin Gilbert's ground-breaking book from the time was entitled Living Black. The book included interviews with several members of the Aboriginal community including Robert Jabanungga reflecting on contemporary Aboriginal culture.

The people this is aimed at will be demeaned as 'second class' and this is 10,000 levels of hell no wrong, but I am also wondering how long it will be before a cisgendered person gets challenged for not looking male or female enough, gets offended at being required to 'prove' it and kicks off.
 
So... who's going to be checking our underwear when we go to the bathroom?

As a resident of WA I am both disgusted and amazed that this got any further than some knob drafting it before someone with some bleeping sense said NO and stopped it.

Many people have spotted these unusual colourful clouds over the skies of the UK the last few mornings.

Nacreous clouds usually form in the lower stratosphere over polar regions when the sun is just below the horizon. The clouds are illuminated from below and often glow in vivid colours and will often remain visible for a couple of hours after sunset and through the night as they are lit by moonlight. Nacreous clouds form below -78 °C temperatures and so are most likely to occur during the polar winter. They are most likely to be viewed during civil twilight when the sun is between 1º and 6º below the horizon and are most likely to be seen at higher latitudes such as Scandinavia and northern Canada.
