A good read and not a shock really. It's amazing the number of changes to a product occurs over it's lifetime. Trying to update every diagram, schematic and specification as a new document is practically impossible. During my old working days (prior to my financial suscess and early retirement!) we would have a dozen or more engineering and manufacturing changes a month. By the time all the docs were updated, checked and approved it was time for another round and they quickly started to overlap. So what happened was a separate set of docs and records of just the changes and most importantly it required the people to stay on top of it constantly and yet screw ups happened. Now multiply that chaos by 1000 or so to match the complexity of the NASA moon missions it makes sense trying to simply duplicate the hardware and processes years later ain't going to happen.

What gets overlooked too is that those missions and the people were like a community working together. The people involved with the suscesses and failures lived it for years and they were on the same page so to speak. You can't recreate that culture or eliminate a new learning curve from just a set of specifications void of that human input.

BAIT diggers working on a beach said they were ordered off it by armed military personnel moments after seeing “triangular-shaped” UFOs.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/855977/UFO-aliens-Wilsthorpe-Incident-Yorkshire-bait-diggers-military

The two workers said they had seen the other-worldly objects entering the sea at Wilsthorpe Beach, near Bridlington in East Yorkshire.

Paranormal investigator Paul Sinclair tells their story in a new book he is penning about the Wilsthorpe incident, which has been branded Britain's new Roswell due to the mysterious military activity seemingly connected to UFO sightings.

The two men were working for the owner of a bait shop at nearby Bridlington Harbour when it happened, according to Mr Sinclair.

He said: "They were at Wilsthorpe digging in the high tide. It was an area where the bait shop owner told me they had reported seeing triangles going into the sea.

"On this day they were surrounded by soldiers with guns who asked them where they were going and what they were doing.

"They were interrogated, and the lads were a bit off with them, but the soldier said 'if you are not off the beach by the time we turn around you will be going nowhere, because we will arrest you'.

"The bait diggers said they hung around looking from the cliffs and the military men had what looked like metal detectors and were going up and down beach."

Science Alert

Latest DNA Analysis Shows The Yeti Are Actually Just a Bunch of Bears

MICHELLE STARR
29 NOV 2017

The Yeti of the mountains of Asia, hairy like a white ape, yet bipedal and standing taller than a man, is numbered among the world's most beloved cryptids. Yet, for all the eyewitness accounts, physical evidence of the beast is proving tricky to pin down.

Nary a fossil, nor a corpse. But, like its American cousin Bigfoot, pieces of hair and bone, of tooth and skin, have made their way into private collections. Now, DNA analysis on nine of those has proven there's still no physical evidence - all those samples came from regular old animals.

The nine samples, collected from the Himalayas and the Tibetan Plateau, included hair, skin, tooth, bone, and faecal matter. All but one of them turned out to be from bears - Asian black bears, Himalayan brown bears, or Tibetan brown bears.

The remaining sample, a tooth from the Reinhold Messner Mountain Museum, was from a domestic dog.
"Our findings strongly suggest that the biological underpinnings of the Yeti legend can be found in local bears, and our study demonstrates that genetics should be able to unravel other, similar mysteries," said biologist Charlotte Lindqvist from the University at Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences.

Her team isn't the first to conduct DNA analysis on what was believed to be samples of cryptid hair.

In 2014, a team of researchers at the University of Oxford in the UK and the Museum of Zoology in Lausanne, Switzerland, led by Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes, published a paper describing how they had put 37 hair samples from around the world to the test.

It was the first ever genetic survey of "anomalous primate" samples, and it had, well, a similar result. Every single one of the samples that returned a result matched a known species - from polar bear to sheep to human.

That research, however, was based on a simpler genetic test than the research her team conducted, Lindqvist said. Sykes and his team used mitochondrial RNA sequencing.
Lindqvist and her team applied PCR amplification, mitochondrial sequencing, mitochondrial genome assembly, and phylogenic analysis.

Sykes - not without his detractors among the cryptid enthusiast community - was nevertheless careful to note that a lack of evidence was not proof for the non-existence of anomalous primates.

"Rather than persisting in the view that they have been 'rejected by science', advocates in the cryptozoology community have more work to do in order to produce convincing evidence for anomalous primates and now have the means to do so," Sykes' team wrote in their paper.

Lindqvist draws a different conclusion - that the yeti-cum-bear samples provide evidence that the cryptid myth may have evolved from encounters with real animals.

Just as the okapi, discovered in 1901, was reportedly fabled as an "African unicorn," for instance, or remains of Australia's megafauna could have given rise to Aboriginal myths such as the Giant Devil Dingo.

"Clearly," Lindqvist said, "a big part of the Yeti legend has to do with bears."

But the research has other applications outside of cryptid research - the DNA sequenced, when compared to living or modern animals, can provide some insight into the evolution of the bears, many of which are vulnerable or endangered.

The team sequenced the mitochondrial DNA of 23 Asian bears (including the Yeti samples) and compared it with other bears around the world.

They found that Tibetan brown bears are closely related to American bears, but Himalayan bears belong to a different evolutionary lineage that split around 650,000 years ago, during a major ice age.

This could have occurred when the ice significantly changed the landscape, separating groups of bears that then followed separate evolutionary paths.

"Further genetic research on these rare and elusive animals may help illuminate the environmental history of the region, as well as bear evolutionary history worldwide - and additional 'Yeti' samples could contribute to this work," Lindqvist said.

The Yeti samples were provided to Lindqvist by production company Icon Films for an Animal Planet special called "Yeti or Not."

The research has been published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Homeless vet gave last $20 to help a stranded driver. Now he has 'a second chance at life'

Cydney Henderson, The Republic | azcentral.com
Published 3:43 p.m. MT Nov. 29, 2017 | Updated 3:44 p.m. MT Nov. 29, 2017

A homeless veteran wasn't expecting anything when he gave his last $20 to a woman who ran out of gas in Philadelphia.

But thanks to nearly 14,000 donors, 34-year-old Johnny Bobbitt Jr.'s generosity has changed his life forever.
The stranded driver, Kate McClure, raised more than $390,000 for her hero – enough to buy him a home, his dream car and more.

"It’s all happened so fast. I’m happy I’m just getting a second chance at life," Bobbitt told BBC Radio.

What happened?

The 27-year-old's car ran out of gas along a Philadelphia freeway while she was on her way to visit a friend. An unlikely hero came to her rescue.

"Johnny sits on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong," she wrote on GoFundMe. "He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors."

He came back with a red gas can that he had filled with his last $20, she wrote.

McClure returned with her boyfriend Mark D'Amico to visit Bobbitt and to pay him back with money, food, warm clothing and more.

However, something made the couple want to do more. They set up an online fundraiser for him, and donations from around the world poured in.

The North Carolina native served in the U.S. Marine Corps and worked as a paramedic and firefighter, according to his personal Facebook page.

He told BBC Radio that "bad decisions and bad situations" led him to homelessness.

"Y'all did all that! That's awesome!" Bobbitt exclaimed in a video McClure posted to Twitter shortly after he learned about the campaign.

How will the money be used?

McClure said on the GoFundMe page that she set Bobbitt up with an attorney and financial adviser "in order to give Johnny the means to acclimate back into a ‘normal’ life and also to protect him."

Two trust funds and a bank account are being set up, McClure said. One account will allow him to collect a small salary each month, while the other will be invested as a retirement fund.

"So when the time comes, he can live his retirement dream of owning a piece of land and a cabin in the country," McClure wrote on GoFundMe.

Bobbitt also plans to donate some of the money to organizations and people that helped him through the "rough patch in his life" the past couple years.

"It’s like winning the lottery," Bobbitt told Good Morning America.

an aside notation..observation..
he phrase in Hebrew: טוֹב וָרָע, tov wa-raʿ, literally translates as good and evil. This may be an example of the type of figure of speech known as merism, a literary device that pairs opposite terms together in order to create a general meaning, so that the phrase "good and evil" would simply imply "everything". This is seen in the Egyptian expression evil-good, which is normally employed to mean "everything". In Greek literature, Homer also uses the device when he lets Telemachus say, "I know all things, the good and the evil" (Od.20:309-10).[1]

If tree of the knowledge of good and evil is to be understood to mean a tree whose fruit imparts knowledge of everything, this phrase does not necessarily denote a moral concept. This view is held by several scholars.[1][2][3]

However, given the context of disobedience to God, other interpretations of the implications of this phrase also demand consideration. Robert Alter emphasizes the point that when God forbids the man to eat from that particular tree, he says that if he does so, he is "doomed to die". The Hebrew behind this is in a form regularly used in the Hebrew Bible for issuing death sentences.[4]

pretty clear to me where this is headed cool
by analogy also..
I've noted also the the root system of trees hidden from us..can be 4 to 7 times larger than the crown..and that tampering with leaves and branches..can cause roots to die..delicate balance..to keep..

You are probably right.

Even the pundits on CMBC don't appear to be able to see the point in it.

I don't see the difference in using this form form of currency against using any other exchange currency; except the rapid exchange rate makes it wildly impractical.

There seems to be no difference between buying this stuff and buying stocks.

Can the value go down ?

If so everyone who bought at the high rate will lose out. What is different to buying,say, Euro, and speculating that it's value will change before selling ?
