1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)
2El padre de la criatura era el ingeniero William Edward Willoughby "Teddy" Petter, quien había trabajado previamente en numerosas aeronaves de la firma Westland, como el #Lysander, el #Whirlwind o el #Welkin Image
3incluso trabajó en el proyecto para mejorar el #Spitfire corrigiendo cierta inestabilidad del diseño original

Tras ciertas desavenencias con la dirección de @westland, en septiembre de 1944, Peter se despidió y se llevó consigo los trabajos para la propuesta B1/44 Image

#BillGates's #mosquito technological (naive) intervention, is a very bad idea, that I think emerges from the #Anthropocene framework. Thats why I has been pushing #Technocene instead, bc it tends to induce a more #precautionary approach:

As a matter of fact, humans have coevolved with mosquitoes (biologically, cultural and technologically).. see our paper:researchers.one/article/2019-0…

Dear @nytimes @cnn @vice @newsroomnz @thescientistllc @businessinsider @bbcnews @LaVanguardia @diariARA @NatureNews @sciencemagazine I suggest to every one of you to carefully and honestly think and reply to a very simple question regarding #bats #conservation #virus & #ethics.
"A casual family wth 2 lovely children lives in the countryside, near a cave hosting thousands of bats. They never had an issue with them and don't know much about bats... but now they've read your most recent news and headings about #coronavirus. What would they immediately do?"
Let me give my personal view as a bat ecologist "They would probably seal the cave or massively kill as many bats as possible. Some could hopefully escape, but the colony wouldn't definitely be back." But don't misunderstand me. It is 100% logical, and I would have done the same.

#ClimateChange is increasing the risk of #dengue and other 🦟-borne diseases.

Warmer temperatures are expanding habitats for mosquitoes & putting millions more people at risk of these diseases.

🌎🌍🌏, dengue infections have increased 30-fold over the past 50 years.
#Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection, widespread throughout the tropics, with risk increased by:
🌧rainfall
🌡temperature
🏙unplanned rapid urbanization.

#Dengue virus is transmitted to humans through the bites of infected female 🦟 : Aedes aegypti and Ae. Albopictus (also known as Asian tiger moquitoes). This #mosquito also transmits:

As the weather continues to warm up, we want to remind people to protect themselves from disease-carrying mosquitoes, like those that carry the West Nile virus: ow.ly/kA8R50uk372
#SummerSafety #mosquito
#ClimateChange, particularly increased temperature and changes in rainfall, contributes to the spread of West Nile virus. #ClimateChangesHealth
The good news: Preventing bites is relatively easy. Here are some tips:
1. Eliminate standing water around your home.
2. Wear #mosquito repellents that contain DEET, oil of lemon eucalyptus or Picardin.
3. Wear long-sleeved shirts & pants.
4. Make sure doors/windows fit tightly.
