richard dawkins is a shining example of the fact that just because you have some scientifically minded ideas about how nature works and can write books or make shows about how beautiful the intricacies of the world is doesn’t mean you’re immune to the ignorance, stupidity and downright maliciousness that comes with being a white male blind to the system he thrives in. like not even all that science and understanding of evolution helped the homie out on that one..
600 Million Years and Counting…
I was pretty bored so I decided to make some GIFs of the last 600 million years of our planet’s plate tectonics.
The first GIF is a global mollewide projection. The second one is of the Colorado Plateau and the North American Southwest. The next GIF is of the entire formation of the North American Continent. The fourth GIF is of geologic and tectonic evolution of Europe. And finally the last one is the same as the first except in rectangular format.
I obtained the images from Global Paleogeography and them compiled them one by one into Photoshop with the end result being the above GIFs.
Vaginal Microbe Yields Novel Antibiotic
Bacteria living on human bodies contain genes that are likely to code for a vast number of drug-like molecules — including a new antibiotic made by bacteria that live in the vagina, researchers report in this week’s issue of Cell.
The drug, lactocillin, hints at the untapped medical potential of this microbial landscape.
“They have shown that there is a huge diverse potential of the microbiome for producing antimicrobial molecules,” says Marc Ouellette, a microbiologist at the University of Laval’s Hospital Centre (CHUL) in Quebec, Canada, who was not involved in the research.
Studies have suggested that the composition of our microbiomes — the whole suite of bacteria living on our bodies — has huge impacts on our health, but it has been difficult to show exactly how this works.
One year ago today, I brought this dingus home with me.
The picture on the left is the first picture I took of her at home and the one on the right was taken about twenty minutes ago this afternoon. This has easily been the greatest one year of my life.
Her named is Scout and she is my best friend.
