Wonder what ever happened to Cho?
His last entry on his website is August 10, 2016. Doesn’t seem to show up anywhere else recently.
Don’t think the communist holiday existed back then.
Needless to say, as one who used to work to keep endangered, threatened, and sensitive species alive and healthy, I don’t support environmentalism.
The record of the former east bloc and today’s communist countries like China concerning the environment is plain. The Soviets had no air pollution controls, no water pollution controls, nor did the Warsaw Pact. It wasn’t until those socialist government fell that things got cleaned up.
That would make for an interesting ER report.
We tend to put our domiciles in floodplains because they are nice and flat. And get washed away.
On the flip side, floods tend to fertilize the soil. Egypt made a living for thousands of years before the Aswan High Dam was built by the seasonal annual floods fertilizing and watering the soil for farming and fertilizing the river so the food chains from algae to predator fish could survive.
Erosion is tough on things. I’ve seen hard basalt erode back 12 feet in a 20 year span from freeze-thaw, rain and snow. Granodiorite (what California calls “granite”) fares even worse, with major changes in two or three years.
The tech outfits estimate only half of households have a computer.
I would guess the main reason is that one has to have someone who can fix the endless problems that come up. Many people just don’t bother.
Most home units are desktops. They are a fraction of the cost of laptop with the same features. The typically-larger screen, for example. (No way any laptop could fit a screen the size of the one I’m using. The largest have less than half the screen area.)
Reminds me of a recent experience by someone I know where the dealership was trying to sell a pickup for full price but hoping no one would notice the transmission was shot. The test drive was apparently all it took to turn potential buyers off.
Actually, he just described the way a representative republic does it.Democracy is mob-rule, which is why it has always failed due to factions.
From the U.S. Constitution:“Section 4The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a RepublicanForm of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and onApplication of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislaturecannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”
It has nothing to do with the four parties that have used Republican in their name, nor the Democrat Party, nor the Whigs, nor a host of other parties that have existed.
Here’s a good spoof on fortune tellers:
The eeevil squirrel returns.
No doubt about that.
Trouble is, there’s always someone out there that doesn’t value human life. Kim Jong Un, the Ayatollahs and mullahs running Iran, Xi, the recently-deposed Mugabe, and a host of others.
