Nikola Tesla (Nicola Tesla) created #free #energy about 100 years ago, yet Jill Stein gets received as a kook for wanting to create more #jobs in the US aimed at using #Tesla's near ancient #technology to provide energy not derived from #oil and fossil fuels - #AGreenNewDeal. At someone point, we own, enjoy even, our #slavery.

This post is partially about supporting the #GreenParty and equally about reminding society that we act stupid. In fact, our #inaction allows us to exist in this subpar, #dehumanized reality.

#ButWaitTheresMore....

Read these lyrics (bad words ahead). The hip #millennials will know the author, many might fear him. For me, in this moment, the song fits the #narrative and the angst I feel in expressing this. Just imagine these lyrics as read by 'the government' except for the chorus, where the people answer back, which I will notate. See this as one of my possible interpretations and spare me any 'true meanings' of the song:

I don't want you and I don't need you
don't bother to #resist I'll beat you
It's not your fault that you're always #wrong
the #weak ones are there to justify the #strong
the beautiful people the #beautifulpeople
it's all relative to the size of your steeple
you can't see the forest for the trees
you can't smell
your own #shit on your knees

(chorus)
Hey you what do you #see?
something #beautiful something #free?
[the people:]
hey you, are you trying to be #mean?
if you live with apes man, it's hard to be #clean

there's no time to #discriminate,
hate every #motherfucker
that's in your way

the worms will live in every host
it's hard to pick which one they eat most
the horrible people, the #horriblepeople
it's as anatomic as the size of your steeple
#capitalism has made it this way,
old-fashioned #fascism
will take it away

The Case Strengthens For Planet 9

The technology and luck needed to image the planet (if it truly is there) has thus far fallen short, but the discovery of another set of distant solar system objects traveling in surprising orbits has added to the indirect findings that point to a massive planet in the general vicinity.

The new findings come from Scott Shepard of the Carnegie Institution for Science and Chadwick Trujillo of Northern Arizona University, who provided some of the first intriguing inklings that this distant planet might exist in our solar system two years ago. That information was subsequently expanded by others into a full-blown theory.

“What we’ve just released is data on the first extreme objects since the reports of a theorized Planet 9, and they show the same clustering and orbiting patterns that we think are likely caused by a major planet,” Sheppard said.

“This continues the trend of finding these objects — small dwarf planets or maybe icy objects — that were pushed into similar orbits in ways we think only planets can do.”

“We need more,” he said. “but the evidence is mounting, and at this point I’d say there’s an 80 percent likelihood that the planet is there.”

 The study found that two genes, SCHIP1 and PDE8A, are associated with measures of human facial size.
 
GENE for human facial development 
- Why the Long Face? New Study Uncovers Genes Regulating Your Appearance - by http://www.genengnews.com
An international team of researchers led by a University of Colorado School of Medicine scientist has identified two significant genes associated with measures of human facial size and has identified 10 additional candidates for location of genes affecting human facial shape.
"Gene discovery for human facial development is an important first step for both diagnosing and treating craniofacial syndromes such as cleft palate, and for developing forensic modeling of the human face," said Richard A. Spritz, M.D., Professor and Director of the Human Medical Genetics and Genomics Program at the CU School of Medicine on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

An ideal fluid is flowing with a speed of 12 cm/s through a pipe of diameter 5 cm. The pipe splits into three smaller pipes, each with a diameter of 2 cm. What is the speed of the fluid in the smaller pipes?

"An experiment with fake frogs shows how certain bats adjust their hunting technique to compensate for unnatural noises.
Humankind is loud, and research already suggests that birds alter their singing in urban noise. Now tests show that bats listening for the frogs they hunt switch from mostly quiet eavesdropping to pinging echolocating when artificial sounds mask the frog calls. That way, the bats can detect the motion of the frogs’ vocal sac poofing out with each call, researchers report in the Sept. 16 Science.
That switch in sensory tactics could make frogs the only animals besides people shown to react this way to interfering din in the classic cocktail party scenario, says study coauthor Wouter Halfwerk of Vrije University Amsterdam. People straining to hear each other over the cacophony of a party can get a boost in communication by paying attention to each other’s mouth movements. He points out that watching someone’s lips lets people tolerate about an extra 20 decibels of tipsy shrieking and shouting.
Conservation biologists worry about the effects of human racket on other residents of the planet. Other researchers, for instance, found that noise interfered with pallid bats’ success in hunting insects on the wing. The fringe-lipped bats (Trachops cirrhosus) in the new study, however, specialize in frogs instead of insects. Hungry bats listen to frog choruses and swoop out of the darkness to carry off a male chirping his advertisements for a mate. “A talking pickle” is what Halfwerk calls the frog".
Test with robotic frogs finds bats that hunt amphibians switch their attention to other clues if outside noise masks the mating chorus.

and like that, the food chain for these three animals is confirmed.. and i'm not even joking.. it's awesome to see
A single fossil spans three trophic levels of the food chain, and is only the second of its kind ever to be found.

It's the worst short story ever written: “On a dark and stormy night … the end.” The real story – the context, the tension and the motivations – are missing. That’s what it feels like for scientists reading the reaction that uses a cobalt catalyst to produce hydrogen. Scientists at PNNL’s Center for Molecular Electrocatalysis wanted to know the rest of the story … and they found out what happened between the first page and the last. Read the full story at http://goo.gl/UZcxN9.

Mayenite is one smart cement. It can be turned from an insulator to a transparent conductor and back. It is also suitable for use as semiconductors in flat panel displays. The secret behind mayenite's magic is a tiny change in its chemical composition. In new work, scientists show how components called electron anions help to transform crystalline mayenite, also called C12A7, into semiconducting glass. For flat panel makers, this may lead to the replacement of indium and gallium with abundant non-toxic elements like calcium and aluminum. Read more at http://goo.gl/4Ad9Bw.

#ASTHMA #MEDICINE - The #eosinophils that contribute to inflammation and exacerbation of the #asthmatic response had been known to scientists for some time. But another type of eosinophil has been discovered that, to the great surprise of Researchers at the University of Liege’s GIGA research centre, has been shown to play a protective and beneficial role. Their astonishing discovery is published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation.

The degradation of soil organic matter by microbes plays an important role in atmospheric carbon levels. A recent study at the +Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at PNNL examined how soil minerals could affect the stability of microbial proteins, potentially influencing the rate of carbon dioxide release into the atmosphere. The findings shed new light on how protein-mineral interactions could affect degradation rates of soil organic matter. Read more at https://goo.gl/gZEYFB.
