Lone,

No worries. We will see how it pans out.

Say, re the problems you all are having with health care.

Why don't you switch to the same system we have.

It seems that the President doesn't want poor people in the government. Maybe the idea is for them not to be able to afford medical aid as well.
When they have all died off the problem won't be so acute.

That wouldn't happen over here.

Undercover Video Reveals CNN’s Van Jones Calling Russia Story A ‘Nothing Burger’


http://dailycaller.com/2017/06/28/undercover-video-shows-cnns-van-jones-calling-russia-story-a-nothing-burger-video/

CNN commentator Van Jones called the Russia story a “nothing burger” in the second CNN-related undercover video released by Project Veritas this week.

“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” Jones says on the video, apparently unaware he is being filmed. “There’s nothing there you can do.”


The comments caught on tape aren’t terribly inconsistent with what Jones has said in the past. While Jones has criticized Trump’s lukewarm responses to Russian election interference, he has also gone after the Democrats for using Russia as an excuse for their 2016 failure.

“Let’s be honest,” Jones said of the Clinton campaign earlier this June. “They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign!”

On Monday night, Project Veritas released a video of a medical producer at CNN saying that while he believes the Trump-Russia narrative is “bullshit(skey),” CEO Jeff Zucker has instructed his employees to focus on Russia to help boost the network’s ratings.

ABC News

Motorcycle lover to be buried in his Harley-Davidson sidecar

By The Associated Press

STEEL CITY, Pa. — Jun 28, 2017, 8:20 PM ET

A Pennsylvania man who loved motorcycles and recently died is taking one last ride.

Family members say 89-year-old Steel City resident Arthur Werner Sr. made plans way ahead of his death from cancer Sunday to be buried in the sidecar of his 1990 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail.

LehighValleyLive.com reports he found a funeral home run by motorcycle enthusiasts who were more than able to comply.

Heintzelman Funeral Home has three motorcycle hearses in its fleet.

David Heintzelman says the funeral home doesn't even have to modify the sidecar to make it happen.

Werner will be in the sidecar for Thursday's viewing and will be buried in it Friday.

He bought the Harley with his retirement bonus after working 42 years as a Bethlehem Steel welder.

His daughter-in-law Cindy Werner says "he lived for that bike."

Vancouver Aquarium

Published on Jun 28, 2017

A tiny male sea otter pup — estimated to be just two to four weeks old — is now in 24-hour care at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre, after concerned members of the public found it swimming alone in open water off northern Vancouver Island on Sunday. Although the pup appears healthy, he requires care night and day from the Rescue Centre team, just as he would from his mother. Staff and volunteers are spending shifts feeding, bathing and grooming the newborn pup, which has not yet been named.

Greenland's Ice Melting Faster Than Previously Thought (Video)

By Kasandra Brabaw, Space.com Contributor
June 28, 2017

NASA'S APTLY TITLED OCEANS MELTING GREENLAND (OMG) project studies the extent to which warm ocean waters are melting glaciers from below — and it's much faster than anyone expected. According to a new video from the "Science at NASA" YouTube channel, several feet of the ice melts every day during the summer.

Warm ocean currents sweep across the glaciers' surfaces, eroding them from below, according to the video.

For a few weeks each year, a NASA aircraft flies around Greenland to map the elevations along the glaciers using the Glacier and Land Ice Surface Topography Interferometer (GLISTIN). High-resolution maps of the ice show how quickly the glaciers are losing ice at their edges.

The aircraft also drops about 250 ocean probes each year and will continue to do so until 2020, to measure changes in temperature and the concentration of salt in the water between the ocean's surface and the seafloor, according to OMG's website. Surface water is usually colder and contains less salt than water at the seafloor, the video said, because it is made primarily of the water melting from the glaciers. The probes should help scientists learn how changes in the ocean affect the ice, according to the video.

OMG also uses sonar to measure the seafloor's shape and depth, which affects where warm ocean waters erode the ice and the extent to which they do so, according to the video. The project also conducts airborne measurements of gravity to help determine ocean depth.

The whole project aims to improve scientific estimates of increasing sea levels, according to OMG's website.

Scientists combine OMG's data with that of a second NASA project, Operation IceBridge, which measures how much polar ice melts from above, to get the most accurate measure of Greenland's changes in glacial ice.

Ala Khazendar, a glaciologist with OMG, said in the video that IceBridge's high-resolution topographic mapper is the "gold standard of measuring surface elevation changes of the ice sheet." The two projects in combination help scientists better determine if more ice is being lost due to temperatures of the ocean water or of the atmosphere, the video says.

If all of the ice in Greenland were to melt, it could raise global sea levels by 20 feet (6 meters), Josh Willis, the principal investigator on OMG, said in the video. Right now, scientists working with OMG expect that to take several hundred years.

Millions of Pickle-Shaped Organisms Are Invading Northwest Waters


By Laura Geggel, Senior Writer
June 29, 2017

The waters off the Oregon coast are mysteriously awash with strange, jelly-like creatures that look like translucent slugs, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

These bizarre organisms, called pyrosomes (Pyrosoma atlanticum), began appearing off Oregon's coast in 2015, but in recent months, their numbers have multiplied into the millions, NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Newport, Oregon, reported.

P. atlanticumusually live in tropical waters. Even so, they are thriving in the Northwest's typically chilly Pacific Ocean, multiplying to the point of clogging local waters and fishing gear.

For instance, a 5-minute midwater tow with a research net off Oregon's Columbia River in late May captured roughly 60,000 pyrosomes. The scientists who caught them had been looking for a rare fish, and had to spend hours sorting through the pyrosomes until they found their target, they said.

"We have a lot of questions and not many answers," Ric Brodeur, a research biologist at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center, said in a statement. "We're trying to collect as much information as we can to try to understand what is happening and why."

Strange colony
Each pickle-like creature is, in fact, a colony made up of individual zooids that join to create a hollow, tube-like structure that has one closed end and one open end. (A zooid is a small, multicellular organism that makes up part of a colonial animal, and can arise from another zooid by budding or dividing.)

These plankton-eating filter feeders hang out hundreds of thousands of feet below the water's surface during the day, and migrate vertically to the surface at nighttime. But little is known about their eating behavior and how that impacts food chains, especially when they show up in large numbers, NOAA officials said.

P. atlanticum are pelagic, meaning they live far from land, in the open ocean. In this case, the pyrosomes are found in high densities from about 40 miles to 200 miles (60 to 320 kilometers) off the Oregon coast, NOAA officials said.

Oregon's pyrosomes range from about 1.5 inches to 2.5 feet (4 to 78 centimeters) long, and researchers have found even larger pyrosomes farther off the coast, NOAA reported.

"At first, we didn't know what to make of these odd creatures coming up in our nets, but as we headed north and farther off shore, we started to get more and more," Hilarie Sorensen, a University of Oregon graduate student, said in the statement. "We began counting and measuring them to try to get a better understanding of their size and distribution related to the local environmental conditions."

Pyrosome predators include certain fish, dolphins and whales, the agency added.

It would take quite a few of these predators to make a dent in this pyrosome boom. The creatures' population expansion is also taking over waters off northern California, Washington and southeast Alaska. Researchers plan to study them further to see what factors led to the creatures' sudden rise, NOAA officials said.

GOOD MORNING ALL cheesy

Science Alert

Physicists Just Found One of The Forces Holding The World Together Can Also Push It Apart

No, seriously, we really will need to update the textbooks on this one.

MIKE MCRAE
30 JUN 2017

A type of force that makes molecules briefly stick to one another has been shown to have a more repulsive side, even when they aren't being squeezed together.

Since first being described in 1930, van der Waal forces have been regarded as mostly attractive, only pushing back when groups of molecules are under pressure. New research predicts such a reversal can occur in the real world where crowds of molecules jostle freely, an idea that could affect how we approach everything from protein folding to nanotechnology.

By applying a model that mimicked how the charges on particles become polarised under certain conditions and then comparing their findings with experimental results, the researchers showed van der Waal forces can push when they were only expected to pull.

To get a better idea of exactly what this means, it helps to understand that van der Waal forces are like the little brother to the bonds that connect atoms to one another.

While reality is a little more complex, think of electrons as negatively charged particles that move around a positively charged nucleus. As they move, they're often more likely to occupy some areas around the atom more than others, depending on what else happens to be pushing and shoving nearby.

That's referred to as an electron charge density.

Molecules that have atoms of mismatched sizes, such as water with its tiny hydrogen atoms and rotund oxygen, can have an unbalanced game of tug-of-war over their shared electrons, leading to just such a bunching up around the molecule.

Keeping in mind that particles of the same charge have a repulsive effect on one another, electrons that 'bunch up' make that part of a molecule more negative, so they pull towards the zones of other molecules that are left more positive.

This loose bonding is why the molecules of H2O tend to stick more to each another, giving the liquid a high surface tension that makes belly-flops in the swimming pool hurt so much.

Van der Waal forces are like these so-called hydrogen bonds, but happen in molecules that aren't quite so imbalanced. Rather than a tug of war, electrons that randomly bunch up in one area briefly push away electrons on another atom nearby, creating a fleeting connection.

Compared with other forms of chemical bonding, including hydrogen bonds, van der Waal forces aren't exactly all that powerful, and require molecules to be relatively close to one another.

"The textbooks so far assumed that the forces are solely attractive. For us, the interesting question is whether you can also make them repulsive," says researcher Alexandre Tkatchenko from the University of Luxembourg.

Squeezing molecules close together can make their electron charge density shift, causing the molecules to repel one another.

Most models on van der Waal forces are based on pairs of molecules interacting in free space. The researchers wanted to know if the same rearrangements of electrons could sometimes be repulsive under other crowded conditions that weren't under high pressure.

The pair used a model called a Drude oscillator to mimic the fluctuating charge densities around particles in a confined space. approached the interactions as quantum systems based on waves rather than the more traditional many-body dispersion framework that relied on particles.

Their novel quantum-mechanical method fitted what they observed better than previous explanations, demonstrating that the tiny tugs between molecules over short distances can sometimes turn into the occasional shove, even when they're not being squeezed together.

"We could rationalise many previous experimental results that remained unexplained until now. Our new theory allows, for the first time, for an interpretation of many interesting phenomena observed for molecules under confinement," says researcher and developer of the model, Mainak Sadhukhan.

Though fleeting and tiny, van der Waal forces are collectively bonds to be reckoned with, especially in complex chemistry that involves diverse molecules such as those inside our cells.

Not only is it academically interesting that the forces can sometimes push, it could have implications in how we develop new pharmaceuticals, approach desalination technology, or even move molecules around in new forms of nanotech.

This research was published in Physical Review Letters.

THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL BEGINS!!!

Photobucket is cracking down on people embedding on third-party websites images it hosts, until now, for free.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/06/30/photobucket_charging_400yr_3rdparty_pgs/

The photo-slinging internet elder now says that anyone who wants to use its service to display photos it hosts on other pages – such as signature banners in forum posts – will now need to open up their wallets and plop down $399.99 a year for a subscription plan.

The new policy will be particularly annoying to longtime users who have relied on Photobucket's 14-year-old service to host the images they use to place images on forums or in blog posts.

Cheaper plans, including the free account option, will no longer have an option to allow third-party hosting.


THE REACTION...IMMEDIATE!!!

Ms. Virion @Pathogenome
@photobucket Hope you go out of business with this strategy. Not paying a $400 ransom, I'll find someone else to host my pictures.


Samantha Johnson @srj_art
Special congrats to @photobucket for killing their own site. No more 3rd party image hosting unless I pay $400/year? I'll go elsewhere, ty.


Julia @Contour_Affair
you are a DISGUSTING company @photobucket this is 100% blackmail. I have years of blog content on your platform, now forcing to pay 400/year
