👉 S’inspirer du vivant pour organiser l’entreprise

« Il faut s’y résigner : la métaphore biologique inspire nombre d’auteurs. Le problème, c’est que ce faisant, ils construisent le plus souvent un château de sable. Non seulement..
..., la métaphore est inadéquate, mais est aussi une source de bullshit.
Au fondement de cet appel à la nature […] repose l’idée selon laquelle, à l’image des organismes qui s’adaptent à leur environnement ou meurent, les entreprises modernes doivent être comprises comme des...
... êtres vivants. Ceci affirmé, on peut mettre sur pied des "organisations cellulaires" et s’inspirer de la Nature (toujours un N majuscule !) […].
Voilà donc qu’une "inspiration" et une "analogie" permettent d’élaborer l’arme suprême pour transformer le monde ! En concevant...

Want to learn about the rocks of Mt #Everest and the #EBC trek? I am a geologist and did a couple of roadside lectures and field observations on my trek; here are some of the cool rocks l found. 1/n #geology #Himalayas #Nepal #adventure #Science #academia #nature
Over 50 million years ago, there was an ocean between India and Eurasia, the Tethys ocean. The ocean closed and the two continental plates collided forming the Himalayas. The Himalayas are still growing today! 2/n
Imagine being pressed between two continental plates! That pressure forms metamorphic rocks that can be categorized into how much pressure was applied to the rock. At low pressure, former mudstones from the bottom of the ocean become slate: grey, flaky rocks. 3/n

Египетские археологи раскопали руины храма древнегреческого бога Зевса на археологическом памятнике Телль-эль-Фарма (Синайский полуостров). Это открытие ждали 100 лет!
#nature
Еще в начале 20 века французские археологи во главе с египтологом Жаном Кледатом исследовали эту территорию и обнаружили древнегреческие надписи, указывающие на существование храма Зевса-Касиоса.

Но раскопки проводить никто не стал.
И вот, спустя век руины храма наконец увидели свет.

Мустафа Визари, генеральный секретарь Высшего совета по древностям Египта, рассказал, что во время раскопок археологи заметили остатки ворот, возле которых лежали две упавшие гранитные колонны.

В загадочных и таинственных мангровых лесах обитает чудо-рыба.

По всем признакам илистые прыгуны (Periophthalmus) должны принадлежать к классу земноводных. У них подвижные и выдающие из головы глаза, которые периодически нужно смачивать, погружая в глазные впадины.

#nature
Питаются они во время отлива, используя сильные передние плавники для передвижения по илистой почве, а с помощью хвоста, вообще, могут прыгать. Нередко за кормёжкой случаются драки между прыгунами, пример которой вы можете наблюдать на видео.
Обитают в вязком иле, закапываясь в который становятся незаметными для хищников.

Всё вроде бы логично складывается, но у илистых прыгунов есть жабры! Именно из-за этой детали их относят к рыбам, а не к земноводным.

Galveston: In 1900, Galveston, population 36,000, was obliterated, making it the site of the worst natural disaster in US history, a sad record it retains to this day. 6,000 to 12,000 were killed, thousands of buildings wiped out, etc. 1/
2/ Galveston was rebuilt with a massive seawall and the land was raised as much as 17 feet. 15 years later, another similar hurricane and storm surge hit. The wall worked. Only 53 were killed. #Galveston #Texas #hurricane #UShistory
3/ 1900 #Galveston hurricane: Galveston was one of Texas' largest cities and was very, very wealthy. Disregarding #statistics #probabilities #science #data, plans for a seawall to protect the sandbar city were dismissed as ridiculous. #nature

So I saw a bit of disagreement last week over the idea of whether #biology is #programmable in any meaningful sense. As someone who works with biology in an industrial context, I wanted to unpack the idea just a little more. 🧵
For some, the claim that 'biology is programmable' is childishly obvious. Others say it's a bad metaphor or that if we don’t have total #predictability that it doesn’t count as programming. I tend to think both are right.
In #biomaterials, and the synthetic biology field in general, we are hacking systems we don’t understand. We are “programming" them (through environmental or genetic changes), but struggle in the predictability domain because we don’t fully grok this alien #technology (aka life).

Government has published proposals for new #nature targets. It's good to see the 2030 #StateofNature target to halt #wildlife decline recognised as an apex goal. Thanks to all who campaigned with us.

But overall the proposals aren't yet strong enough: wcl.org.uk/government-mus…
In particular, on biodiversity, the long-term target for wildlife (10% increase on 2030 baseline by 2042) could see species abundance *lower* in 20 years' time than it is today.

That's not in line with the Government's 25 Year Plan promise to pass on #nature in better condition.
There's no target for the condition of SSSIs, despite the previous promise (below) that 75% will be in good condition by 2042.

The target for 500k hectares of habitat creation/restoration is a gross figure and does not take account of net losses, so we could see overall loss.

Let's celebrate #ValentinesDay with a tribute to a love for #nature, trees, and forests! [A thread]
According to legend, the first ever Valentine’s letter, sent by the eponymous Saint, was written on a heart-shaped leaf that was just within reach outside his cell window somewhere in Rome. The leaf was from the violet flower – now the floral emblem of New Brunswick!
St. Valentine's Day became associated with love and romance in the Middle Ages. The tradition first started in France and England, where it was believed that birds started their mating season on February 14. Likely under the cover of the #forest…for privacy 😉

1. On the occasion of #WetlandDay, here is a #thread on Reeds(varieties of tall aquatic grass) that grow in wetlands or marshy grounds. Reedbeds support a large variety of birds sp. eg, the Bitterns

#WetlandWonders #IndiAves #birdphotography #birding #birdwatching #NatureBeauty
2. Reeds are also home to some elusive species like the crakes & the rails (Family: Rallidae). Commonly seen Grey-headed Swamphen and Common moorhen are also belong to the same family.

3. Reedbeds are favorite among the herons. The Purple herons are always there along with their cousin Pond herons. Egrets and Cormorants are also found throughout the year around the reeds.

Unsere neueste Arbeit, gerade erschienen in #Nature zeigt, dass unser Immunsystem dreimal das Spike Protein gesehen haben muss um eine qualitativ hochwertige Immunantwort aufzubauen. Wichtig: eine Durchbruchsinfektion muss da auch anerkannt werden!
Tolle Zusammenarbeit mit unseren Kollegen Oliver Keppler und Percy Knolle und deren Teams! nature.com/articles/s4159…
Und was unsere Arbeit auch zeigt: das Immunsystem braucht Zeit um qualitativ hochwertige Antikörper auszubilden, die eine starke Bindung zeigen. Und eine starke Bindung ist mindestens genauso wichtig wie einfach nur viele Antikörper, dh ein hoher Antikörper-Titer

It is more likely that humans are doing what they have always done...

... than there is a massive co-ordinated conspiracy where lots of people are deliberately choosing evil

#conspiracy #human #nature #awareness
Humans generally:
😶Do as they are told by perceived authority figures
😶Do not want to be responsible for poor decisions
😶Think & live in familiar patterns
😶Care & worry

When they have an 'upline' telling them what to do they feel safer as that person has the accountability.
This is why many people enjoy tribes & a place in society where they know what their role and these patterns are.

Even leaders enjoy an upline to whom they can delegate responsibility up the chain.

🟢[Long-thread] Face à #Omicron :
Immunité humorale réduite
Immunité cellulaire reste préservée
2 doses de vaccin sont insuffisantes =) ↗️Infections
3 doses de vaccin offrent une meilleure protection
Peu de formes graves observées
Tests antigéniques moins sensibles
1/24⤵️
1⃣Immunité humorale réduite avec #Omicron
Ce rapport a montré que : #Omicron échappe à la plupart des thérapies par anticorps monoclonaux et dans une large mesure, aux anticorps provoqués par les vaccins.
2/24⤵️
Selon cet article publié dans #Nature le 23/12 : Pour tous les participants (infectés et vaccinés , vaccinés seulement) : le titre moyen d’anticorps a diminué de 1963 avec le virus ancestral à 89 avec Omicron, donc une baisse du titre d'Ac d’un facteur 22 avec Omicron.

Need a #Nature break? Well, yesterday we had a reprieve from the rain I zipped on up to Sacramento Wildlife Refuge for a brief outing. Here are some of the better pics:

jonathaneisen.smugmug.com/2021/2021-12/2…
As the cover photo shows, got some nice sightings of bald eagles there including a few in flight and a few sitting forever ... I particularly like the ones of one soaring over the hills such as this (even though a bit further away) jonathaneisen.smugmug.com/2021/2021-12/2…
Also saw some sandhill cranes flying over jonathaneisen.smugmug.com/2021/2021-12/2…

Having grown a bit sick of the silly conservation vs farming narrative, last year I started on a series of articles about farmers doing great things for #nature in #Cumbria. I didn't do one on @herdyshepherd1, but thankfully, I had lots of other farms to choose from. (THREAD)
First up (unsurprisingly) was @wildhaweswater, where I'm lucky enough to work as site manager. We are hoping to show how sustainable upland farming can work alongside ecological restoration. We're learning lots in the process. @Natures_Voice leeschofield.co.uk/farming-with-n…
Next, I visited Sam & Claire at @gowbarrow, on the beautiful shores of Ullswater. They're doing brillinat regenerative farming, with cattle, pigs and ponies. leeschofield.co.uk/farming-with-n…
