The largest recent study of political beliefs ... reveals that the development of political attitudes depends, on average, about 60 percent on the environment in which we grow up and live and 40 percent on our genes.

"Conservatives are reactionary, using an area of the brain (amygdala) related to fear. Liberal brain activity involves internalization – self-awareness, competence (left posterior insula)."

Magic is back

Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Svartskog, Norway

After the driest summer on record, autumn has brought some hefty downpours. Yet this has not at all replenished the record low ground water levels, nor increased the flow of rivers and streams.

It is so dry that even though the last rainfall was just a few days ago, the mushrooms that have popped out of the ground have become dry and have a stunted growth.

Yet there are a few spots that were absolutely amazing last autumn, that have some really amazing specimens like this one just coming out of the ground. This is in a very dark location under dense spruce, and there is no vegetation – not even mosses growing here, which makes the beautifully colored fly agaric stand out like a manifestation of magic.

As the days are still much warmer than normal, these mushrooms grow incredibly fast. Just before encountering this one I checked on another specimen I had encountered the day before to capture its beautiful appearance before it opened up. But opened up it was! The day before it was just like this one, and the next day it was fully grown!

Autumn is still very young, and if more rainfall come along, the autumn might be a great one for mushrooms, but I think it will be a long time before any can compare to that of the autumn of 2017.

#Opinion: "Democrats know, as they have known all along, that they have only a slim chance of derailing Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The question is, how far will they debase themselves for that slim chance?"

[Note also a key point drawn from this piece: Neither Sen. Feinstein nor Ford would have come forward had it not been for someone else forcing their hand through a leak, effectively outing Ford. Because, presumably, they care so much about her.]

Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault — and Kavanaugh’s staunch denial — has ignited a tense, gender-infused war among the Senate’s 100 members, 23 of whom are women.

When government agencies hide their activities from the public, private drones can be a crucial tool for transparency and journalism.

Let’s tell the House of Representatives Transportation Committee that the FAA reauthorization bill should not include any language expanding the government’s power to track, control, or destroy privately-owned drones.
