Meditaranian Geckos are widespread in the Mesilla Valley. They came with imported palm trees and settled in.

I wonder if the launch will actually make the evening news.
Commercial crew program expected to significantly reduce cost of ferrying astronauts to the ISS.

Please share this (with your state and national legislators) if you agree. I submitted the following letter to Senator Martin Heinrich:

Dear Senator Heinrich,
Regulating firearms appears to be a losing battle. Why not focus our attention on regulating the possesion of ammunition? A threat with 10 bullets is less effective than someone in possesion of hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The state does not need to take away anyone's guns. Regulating the possession of ammunition is the key subject with regard to lethality. I grew up in Iowa where alchoholic beverages were sold in state run stores. There were limits on how much alchohol a citizen could buy per day. This was to protect public safety and the safety of the citizen.

I would argue that the posstion of a large quantity of munitions is subject to the same reasonable formula. The BATF already enforces regulations on the possesion of certain low explosive and explosive components based on provisions for safey and need. People who hunt or engage in sport shooting have no need to retain thousands of rounds of ammunition.

The regulation of ammunition might be crafted so as not to offend the second ammendment. I urge you to speak with your fellows about a new approach to firearms threat reduction. The current debate is fruitless. Let the citizen own as many guns as they desire. It is the possession of enough ammunition to kill dozens of people that should be curtailed.

I agreed with Thomas Kindig that reducing the possession of excessive ammunition will reduced the amount of killing in this country.

Not really to the point of the article... since we cannot regulate minds and apparently cannot restrict ownership of firearms, why can't we regulate bullets? Managing access to ammunition and the components of ammunition seem like reasonable measures. To the point, the Swiss are enlisted in a state militia and keep weapons in thier homes. But they must sign out ammunition, and return unused bullets to an armory after hunting or training. This might skirt to entire 2'nd amendment hoo-ha. (Only hoo-ha in the arguement of a WELL-REGULATED malitia.)

You can own as many firearms as you want. Why do you need to retain hundreds or thousands of rounds of ammunition? To what end, and for what purpose?

It costs nothing. Questions are free.
To get computer models to look similar to the Universe around us, cosmologists have assumed that around 96 per cent of matter and energy are in forms that we cannot directly detect. You might think that this would make cosmologists wary of relying...

Brilliant, for what it is worth.

Been looking for a rationalization for your love of modernist art?
One of the most profound insights of modern science is that nature has a symmetrical structure. Since antiquity, naturalists have observed bilateral symmetry in plants and animals, as well as symmetrical hexagons in ice and snow. In the 19th centu...

A successful experiment with fresh water, elodia, pelia moss, and cherry shrimp. No airation or filtration. I started with 7 shrimp and cannot count them now. There are larvae swimming throughout. I feed them 1/2 a sinking pellet once a week. Sunny location - no algea.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to claim qualities which distinguish humans from all other animals.
Wolves’ howls are eerie, beautiful and wild. But what are they actually saying to each other?

The introduction to the article describes a rich landscape of animal song.

Three months ago I wrote an essay in Aeon about intriguing developments in low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), a controversial field that traces its origins to the claims of ‘cold fusion’ by Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons in 1989. Cold fusio...
