Not sure how on the radar this is for you but the #Chinaflooding season starts in 13 days and it’s already a catastrophe.

An interesting analysis of the situation.

#msm not covering this.

#CuratedTruth

"#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

We are facing one more #cyclone today. So let me remind you. #Mangroves;

- acts as buffer & reduce impact of cyclones & #storm surge.
- they break the #wind force
- provide #habitat to #animals during cyclone or otherwise
- they reduce #pollution.

We just need to protect them.
So how it works. Mangroves create a maze & dense habitat. With species which are salt tolerant & special adaptations. They act like buffer & consume the winds & energy. So after passing the storms get dampen. You must have read in ‘Theory of Vibration’.
They are prop roots. In #mangrove #ecosystem they are adventitious support roots. They Grow down from lateral branches, in a way support trees, with doing other root functions. Additionally roots buffer against damage to coasts & enhance biodiversity & carbon sequestration.

@WhoWouldWin13 First, let's look at physicality.

@RondaRousey is 5 feet 7 inches tall and normally weighs 145-150 (Her walking weight. When she dehydrated before a UFC fight she got down to 135). @JordynneGrace however is five feet 3 and 150-160 pounds. Ronda obviously has a reach advantage
@WhoWouldWin13 @RondaRousey @JordynneGrace right off the bat, but Jordynne has a sleight weight advantage.

She also has a strength advantage.

@JordynneGrace is a superbeast, arguably lbs for lbs the strongest woman in professional wrestling. She's not the strongest in the absolute sense (@NiaJaxWWE would be even
@WhoWouldWin13 @RondaRousey @JordynneGrace @NiaJaxWWE stronger), but she's stronger than even @RondaRousey, and will be able to overpower her.

@RondaRousey is a former MMA fighter, but due to the quirks of Pro-Wrestling, she wont be able to bring her MMA skills fully to bear (otherwise she would be winning her matches far more

#Megasquid (16 feet tall, 8 tons).
#VS
#Hatzegopteryx (33-36 foot wingspan, 18 feet tall, 500 pounds)

Who would win? #Debate #FutureIsWild #Planet #Dinosaur ImageImage
When I made this battle, I had thought that Hatzegopteryx was as tall as a giraffe, as presented in the documentary series "Planet Dinosaur" (seen below)
youtube.com/watch?v=FoE7dz…
Indeed, this would have made it about as tall as Quetzalcoatlus, another giant pterosaur (one that, contrary to the "Planet Dinosaur", had a bit bigger wingspan that Hatzegopteryx. Its depiction is below). ImageImage

#5G from space: The role of satellites in 5G

"5G has arrived, and new equipment is currently being installed in densely populated cities across the globe."

#COVID19 #MagicTricks

futurithmic.com/2020/03/10/5g-…
"In many cases, the demand for 5G capacity is exceeding #infrastructure improvements, especially in sparsely populated areas that are difficult to access."
"With the next generation of satellites – built from #5G architecture – they will integrate with networks to manage connectivity to cars, vessels, airplanes and other #IoT devices in remote and rural areas."

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

Yesterday, on the 1st day of the UK's #COVID19 lockdown, I started posting a daily #deepsea fact on my instagram (@diva_amon) to help amaze/excite/distract. Will cross-post them here also. Feel free to add comments/questions/etc. & I'll try to get to them #DivasDailyDeepSeaFact
DAY 1: The test used to diagnose #COVID19 & other pandemics was developed with the help of an enzyme isolated from a #microbe found in #DeepSea #HydrothermalVents & freshwater hot springs.
Video: @NERCscience @adrg1.
Fact: @WHOI.

DAY 2: #DeepSea life can be slow. Case in point: the Greenland #shark (Somniosus microcephalus) can live for >400 years & only becomes sexually mature at >150 years old. Yes, it took me a grand total of 2 posts to start talking about sex. I blame @Marahh2o. Video: @oceanexplorer

Great read in @nytimes by @NathanielRich, focusing on the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of #climatechange.

"More carbon has been released into the atmosphere since the final day of the #Noordwijk conference, Nov. 7, 1989, than in the entire history of civilization preceding it."
"By the end of the 21st century, scientists predict that Switzerland could face a temperature increase of five degrees Fahrenheit because of climate change; by then, a majority of central #Switzerland’s glaciers will have disappeared."

@TeaPainUSA 1/ I have personally experienced twelve #Presidents in my life, and formed over all those years a proud image in my mind of what the #Office of the #AmericanPresident means...

Those twelve have both satisfied and disappointed me to varying degrees, but they have shared...
@TeaPainUSA 2/...one attribute, that they brought mostly respect & honor to the office.

Now I arrive at my thirteenth President. I find myself at a loss to fully explain my feelings, because, after two years, when I expected at least some of the same sense I had of the prior twelve...
@TeaPainUSA 3/...instead I simply feel that a dark, black, malevolent void has settled on my #PresidentsHouse. And that feeling is getting worse.

I don’t know how many more #Presidents I will get to know. But I do know two things. One, my vision of #AmericasPromise is unchanged...
