Biotechnology: the Pentagon’s next big thing

Biotechnology has long been an important field of scientific research. But until recently, it has never been formally considered by any military as a significant technological investment opportunity, or a technology that could revolutionize the conduct of war. For example, the Pentagon’s Defense Science Board (DSB), that helped then Secretary of Defense Harold Brown identify technologies central to the second offset strategy in 1976, and helped then deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work identi...

Why ‘Plantopedia’ is an excellent guide to houseplants and indoor plant care

Throughout the novel coronavirus pandemic in California, the list of essential businesses allowed to remain open in this state has always included plant nurseries. During these contentious times, it would appear that most people can agree on at least one point: life can only properly be lived in close proximity to plants. Even those who live on the 20th floor of an apartment tower can enjoy plants if they opt for botanical species compatible with indoor living. If you are in search of a book tha...

The changing role of medical librarians in a COVID-19 world

“Health librarians really need to have a broad picture of the health environment to have an impact and connect all the dots,” says Gemma Siemensma, Library Manager at Ballarat Health Services (BHS), Australia.

Background Checks from Gun Sales Break Records for November 2020

Do ‘universal background checks' really work to reduce gun-related crime? (Dave Workman) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- November of 2020 continued the trend of record-breaking gun sales and record-breaking National Instant background Check System (NICS) checks. The two are not the same. About half of background checks in recent years are done for other purposes, such as gun permits and gun permit rechecks. Permit and permit rechecks have slowed somewhat in relation to gun sales in 2020, probably du...

Lost for words? Introducing Oxford’s “Words of an Unprecedented Year”

Bushfires. A global pandemic. Lockdown. Economic recession. Racial injustice. International protests. A pivotal election. For over a decade, we have selected a word or expression that captures the ethos, mood or preoccupations of the last 12 months, driven by data showing the ways in which words have been used. But this year, how could we pick a word, or even a shortlist, to summarize the ways in which we’ve been continually knocked off our axis?Instead, today we released a comprehensive report ...

Accessible libraries: “a different sense of reading”

The German Centre for Accessible Reading, dzb lesen, unites tradition with the modern world. Founded on 12 November 1894 as the German Central Library for the Blind, it has been a library for blind and visually impaired people for more than 125 years and is thus the oldest specialist library of its kind in Germany.

Trevor Noah Tweet Makes Mass Death ‘Joke’ Many Gun Prohibitionists Agree With

POTD: Unicorns Down-Under!

I consider myself quite lucky to either have hands-on experience with a few uncommon firearms or at the very least talk with people who own them.

There were 2,892,115 background checks done in September, and about 1.614 million firearm sales.

How to keep these blazingly colorful plants in bloom all year

Sometimes you see a certain color in a certain flower and it suddenly seems that you have never seen such a perfect version of that color before. There is something about the quality of colors seen in certain flowers – silky and dreamy, yet brilliant and vibrant — that you encounter nowhere else. Nature is really a living art gallery where the colors that you see are of a quality superior to those in any work of art found in a museum. I got to thinking about the ultimate expressions of color aft...

New Art Collections: Square Sets

I’ve been quiet for a few days because it’s been especially challenging to stay focused with so much going on. Between the pandemic and the serious wildfires in my county, everyone is more on edge. There are two things that really help me unwind: exercise and creativity. I try to do both every day, something active and something creative. In challenging times like this, I find a long walk to clear my head always helps. I do this a lot when I travel, I take my favorite mini DSLR camera or my iPho...

A tribute to the fallen

President Trump is reliably reported to have referred to soldiers who have fallen in battle as “losers” and “suckers.” Supposedly, on November 10, 2018, he refused to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, outside Paris. It was raining and he feared his hair would get mussed. On hearing this—reported in the Atlantic magazine—I was totally surprised at the strength of my emotion. Anger, yes, but sadness too. I want to write about this. Not about Trump. Enough people are doing this ...

These colorful, resilient plants can withstand the blistering summer heat

We are living in difficult times. But I think we can learn a lesson from plants that just might carry us through. The lesson concerns resiliency. Even in blistering heat, certain plants continue to show their brilliance. Bougainvillea is the best example of this. We see so much bougainvillea (named for French navigator Louis Antoine de Bougainville) around us that we take its uninterrupted color display for granted. Because its magenta bracts are curiously arranged compared to those seen on othe...

More Medical Propaganda Disguised as a “Study” about Firearms and Risk

Doctors and Guns U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The American Journal of Medicine recently published a paper about deaths associated with firearms. The paper misleads in the first sentence of the abstract. The lie is in the unstated, false assumption. It is a subtle but important shift in causation. The first sentence in the abstract is: News media and policy makers frequently discuss deaths from firearms, drug overdoses, and motor vehicle accidents. The shift in causation is done when the author in...

James Hilton Bibliography

Trawling through on-line newspapers I found a crime short story by James Hilton called "Lives of Men". Hilton (died 1954) is still copyright in L+70 but is PD in Australia. Meanwhile, I find there is a story called "Lives of Men" by Hilton with an entirely different story, online at an Australian PD website. Absolutely and utterly different, slightly eerie set in the Torres Strait. It turns out that this story is referenced in the International SF Database. The one I found in the newspaper (a...
