Where's your G-d given imagination? S13

Seriously? How old are you?

This is why I really like Smilies, because they help identify the seriousness or lightness of statements. Plus, as the young age of 71 I know I have trouble bringing surface knowledge for use in conversation. I know what it is, want to use it, but somehow I just can't seem to bring it up. Five-ten minutes later, when I no longer need it, it pops back up for me. Gah

Its frustrating and the main reason why I am such a huge coconut oil person. S11

Regardless, its a great work. None of that whisking around the galaxy with FTL(faster then light). Pournelle did a great deal of research into the science with some of his buddies at JPL(Jet Propulsion Laboratory). Lots of science involved there. I've never heard or read of anyone who didn't enjoy the work.

I give it 100% S22

I saw this the other day, and its really enlightening.

Chillies could help beat cancer as research finds capsaicin destroys diseased cells. The active ingredient that gives chillies their kick can surround cancer cells and kill them off, scientists say, which could help develop a cure for cancer

If they don't kill you, they'll cure you. Something like that? S5

Here's something interesting from Penn State. Where the rivers meet the sea. Harnessing the energy generated when freshwater meets saltwater.
Quote:UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State researchers have created a new hybrid technology that produces unprecedented amounts of electrical power where seawater and freshwater combine at the coast.

“The goal of this technology is to generate electricity from where the rivers meet the ocean,” said Christopher Gorski, assistant professor in environmental engineering at Penn State. “It's based on the difference in the salt concentrations between the two water sources.”

It will be worthwhile to follow this and see if it really can pan out in the long run.

Commercial soap, made the old fashioned way, from somewhere in the Middle East.

This is interesting.  The more efficient plants are at absorbing increased CO2 from the atmosphere, the more efficient they are with using less water.

Rising carbon dioxide is making the world’s plants more water-wise

Quote:Land plants are absorbing 17% more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere now than 30 years ago, our research published today shows. Equally extraordinarily, our study also shows that the vegetation is hardly using any extra water to do it, suggesting that global change is causing the world’s plants to grow in a more water-efficient way.

Water is the most precious resource needed for plants to grow, and our research suggests that vegetation is becoming much better at using it in a world in which CO₂ levels continue to rise.

The ratio of carbon uptake to water loss by ecosystems is what we call “water use efficiency”, and it is one of the most important variables when studying these ecosystems.

Our confirmation of a global trend of increasing water use efficiency is a rare piece of good news when it comes to the consequences of global environmental change. It will strengthen plants’ vital role as global carbon sinks, improve food production, and might boost water availability for the well-being of society and the natural world.

Yes, we are replenishing our coal stock as we speak... S5
