There's only one way out of here, said someone to the not so little rock.

The really cool thing about the internet is the way that information is at your fingertips, moreso the ability to find an answer based on only part of the puzzle. I think that probably makes us dumber in a way, yet smarter in another, not real sure on whether thats a good thing yet, history will tell.

I was watching the movie "The Thin Redline" the other night, apparently we (my work) had a bit to do with the Wirraway (thats a plane btw) in it, so when it came on TV (yup i'm old school still only watch whats on free to air :) ) i thought i would watch it - not too bad of film i suppose, but what tickled my interest was some audio samples, which i later went back to soundtrack to find, only to note they were not there, segway into the handiness of the internet, yep, the particular audio samples were from a fav artist of mine, Unkle. As such, i'll leave ya'all with quality quote from their work - i suggest a good session listening to Unkle is in order, particularly never never land, great stuff.

Does it help the grass to grow? The sun to shine?, Is this darkness in you too? Have you passed through this night?, This great evil. Where's it come from?

Onto the image, i love these kind of pictures, ones which look out of this world and even completely fabricated, yet not - this particular image is 3 images stitched together to make the pano format, each one taken with the waves in similar spots to make sure it does not look disjointed, with a shutter speed of 3 seconds its pretty forgiving to get things to align, the lone rock at low tide provided the anchor for all 3 images.
The morning sea fog which was crazy thick just topped it off. No elements added, removed or significantly altered, makes for a real easy image to process.

Sorry, I don't believe the surface news on this.
I think this is part of a bipartisan (corporate) effort to screw us all out of Single Payer. Just watch how easily the media will change the national conversation from "Single Payer or bust!" to "Save Obamacare!". We'll be left at the end with the same scumbag Big Insurance on our backs, no relief from price-gouging big Pharma, a mandate that we purchase inadequate healthcare insurance, and medical bankruptcies as far as the eye can see.

I don't want Obamacare. I want authentic, single payer, non-profit, universal healthcare. Anything else is yet another endless bait and switch scam.

GIVE US HEALTHCARE AS A RIGHT!

I'm revisiting this wonderful discussion, Antonio Damasio in conversation with Manuel Castells, University Professor, USC, this morning
(If you look closely you may see me in the audience).

"What moved humans to create cultures—intelligent systems including the arts, morality, science, government, and technology? The answer to this question has typically been the human faculty of language, but preeminent neuroscientist, professor, and director of USC’s Brain and Creativity Institute Antonio Damasio argues that feelings―of pain and suffering or of anticipated pleasure―were the prime engines that stirred human intellect in the cultural direction. In his newest book The Strange Order of Things, Damasio traces the need for cultures back to one-cell organisms, long before there were nervous systems and conscious minds. Damasio will be joined by Manuel Castells, one of the world’s leading sociologists, for a fascinating conversation on the origins of life, mind, and culture that spans the biological and social sciences to offer a new way of understanding the world and our place in it."

SLAC scientists find a new way to explain how a black hole’s plasma jets boost particles to the highest energies observed in the universe. The results could also prove useful for fusion and accelerator research on Earth.

nature clash, Peru; filmed in 2018; Humboldt penguins here need to watch their backs; it's the attack of the vampire bats who find their chicks tasty. (usually it's Sea lions, but these guys will do fine when caught unaware or very young).
