"#Homoeopathy is a branch of universal #medicine based on the ‘principle of the like’ (Similia Similibus Curentur = Like treats Like) and in #minimum doses." .. I
It means that a #substance in a massive dose generates #pathological #symptomatology; has the possibility to #cure it, if applied in the #minimum doses obtained by #dilution and intense #agitation, in other words, #homoeopathic #succussion. .. II
#Homoeopathy is derived from a #Hippocratic #concept developed by the #German #physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), with serially #diluted #medicines (1:9, 1:99, 1:999 and others) in water-ethanol vehicle alternating #dilution with #succussion. .. III

Já falamos de anjos, mas agora vamos falar de demônios. Da Tasmânia. Perfeitamente equilibrado como deve ser. Segue o fio + 😈

Os diabos-da-Tasmânia são os maiores marsupiais carnívoros vivos. Como seu nome diz, eles habitam a Tasmânia, uma ilha ao Sul da Austrália

#australia #ilha #biolododetwitter #tocadodiabo
Eles são predadores vorazes e generalistas ocupando um nicho similar às hienas. Seu ataque às fazendas fizeram os colonos o perseguirem. Entretanto seu nome diabólico vem do som que eles produzem, assustador demais para o ânimo australiano

In 2008, I thought I was at a bad place in my life, though not nearly as bad as now, cause the truth is, there's always more down. Anyway. I digress. I wanted a complete change of scene to get my mind off things.
Despite being an American Studies (and Chemistry) major, I had never been to the USA, so I quickly settled on an extended trip there. Three months, for now.
At the time, I was working freelance for a PR agency. I had been employed there at as a copy editor a few years back.
Made some good money, mostly translating PR material for an import car company, sometimes for motorcycle or tire companies. All I needed for that was a laptop and occasionally some internet access. I could do that work almost anywhere in the world. So money would be no problem.

Since we're all still here ... how about a little tour through the #Neolithic exhibition of Urfa's new archaeological museum?

Well, at least the part I'm somehow familiar with ... which means the Pre-Pottery Neolithic #GobekliTepe finds on display there.
Before we start with the tour, let's just have a look at this sculpture right over here: It's so-called #UrfaMan (from Yeni Mahalle / Yeni Yol) - one of the oldest examples of a life-sized human statue, dating back to the Pre-Pottery #Neolithic as well.

Starting with what still can be considered the only clear #female depiction at #GobekliTepe (which otherwise seems strongly dominated by a rather masculine iconography):

The (later?) carving of a woman on a stone slab found in one of the younger rectangular buildings there.

What's our #beef with beef?

Public interest on #climate, #biodiversity & #diet is rightly growing

#Meat is often at the heart of the debate but it's important we look past headlines & unpick the detail

THREAD 👇

Our #meat comes from different #farm systems

When animals are grazed on grass, as in #organic, this can have positive impacts on #climate & #nature. Intensively produced #grain-fed chicken & pigs can have the opposite effect

#EatBetterMeat #EatOrganic 👉ow.ly/MjQ150xjJI9
🐄🐖🐔 Intensively farmed animals are almost always fed on #grain & imported #soya

The production of animal feed can exhaust soils and drive #rainforest clearance

This is devastating for the #climate & #biodiversity

In this article, we express our critical position towards using #CRISPR to engineer #pigs so that do not reach puberty. #Livestock farming should be designed with animal sentience at its core, we should not modify #animals to fit inhumane systems. allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…
One aspect that the article does not mention and that we clearly indicated as being problematic is animal suffering during #experiments involving #CRISPR: painful #malformations, #abortions, are common "side effects" of such experiments.
Our original statement said "#CRISPR has a high potential for causing severe #animal #suffering during the research phases (such as abortions, perinatal mortality, malformations)
