Coronavirus Risks 13 (SARS-CoV-2)

I’ve been following the virus for 169 weeks now. Originally, I thought that it would be very limited, but that changed about 167 weeks ago, when the numbers began to rise and we found out more about it. I still have the opinion I had right at the start in January 2020 that it was […]

Pole Position and the Sun too

The strangest thing I have come across in coincidence is the development of humankind. Humans in their present for developed around 200,000 years ago. Before that we had races mainly Neanderthals and Denisovans that became absorbed into the human genome. They were around as much as 350,000 years. So, for 340,000 years of that time […]

Memory, Pattern Matching and the Complexity of Stimulus

We have all had things which suddenly jog our memories and make us think of things that happen in the past. We see, hear, smell, taste and touch things that make us smile, remembering events of the past. Generally, we are an optimistic species that prefers to remember nice things rather than bad things, a […]

We are Losing the Fight for Ourselves

To me, everything and everybody has a value. Even the non-working things have a value to work out why they are not working and at least an educational value, if nothing else. My life has been one of trying to work out ‘why?’ How did something get to this situation? Much of our lives are […]

Why is it that Modern Life is so Rubbish?

Why is it that Modern Life is so Rubbish? You do wonder why things are so hard for people. Probably because everything is designed as a consumable or disposable item. Mobile Phones, TV’s, computers, cars; in fact, every piece of modern equipment is designed for a short usable life. Mobile phones and computers become obsolete […]

Problems with Covid & Vaccines

There have been a lot of mentions of the risks of doses of the various vaccines since they came out. The risks for catching and a serious illness coming from covid change with variant, immunisation levels, age, immunity levels, exposure, occupation, sex, race, precautions such as masks and hygiene, blood group, socialisation, and probably a […]

Invasive and non-Native Species

Environmentalists and Naturalists have a fixed ideology and belief system. Some things are right and some things are wrong in this system. For example, their belief on what is a correctly placed animal, and an invading and completely foreign and wrong animal that can be destroyed mercilessly. Animals spread around the world. They are being […]

Kilonova 11/12/2021 GRB211211A

Is there more dense matter in the universe than thought? A theory of a merger of two neutron stars, known as a ‘kilonova’ in 11/12/2021 seemed to produce 50 second long gamma ray burst GRB 211211A that had similar structure in length, colour and luminosity as the one, GRB170817A that coincided with arrival of gravity […]

Are viruses living creatures that respond to a change in environment?

There has been much debate on the status of viruses. Can they be considered as life forms in their own right, or just as rogue processes that plague other organisms that are regarded as life, a form of proto-life maybe? A virus can’t normally stand on its own as a complete individual and has little […]

The Problem of Long Covid

People generally are divided into two camps, those who consider the disease exists and those who don’t, but the existence is very likely and a predictable consequence from the method Covid uses to enter the body, not just being restricted to respiratory system. Covid uses the human ACE2 enzyme as its method to gain entry, […]

Replacement of Rare Earths in Wind Turbines

Recently there was a scientific discovery that Tetrataenite may be a possibility for use as a replacement for rare earths as the magnets in wind turbines, so reducing the hold China has on the production of these. It would make them cheaper and easier to produce, maybe even reducing the cost by 2/3rds. This was […]
