Only gaia cultists with a tenuous grip on reality, think wind and solar will keep us out of the stone ages. Until significantly better energy storage like next-gen Ultracapacitors and batteries are invented, carbon and nuclear is all that's keeping the lights on.

>>36005 Honestly, I know we're the world biggest superpower, but right now it's all bark. The Koreans are threatening like a ton of middle school bullies, but IF they do, it'll have to be an organized attack with all the countries than don't like us, which is most of them. So, in theory, we're fucked. But in retrospect, those chinks over there have their thumbs up their asses and are making bullshit threats.
Does anyone at the WSJ have a sense of the recent history of China and consumer goods?
The article is painted as if Chinese are looking for good deals on foreign products. While this may be the case in some instances, when it comes to baby formula it might be because a bunch of babies were recently poisoned with local Chinese shit ass baby formula.

Many people tried Mic Drop accidentally, or pressed the button without knowing its full effects. It triggered a small but significant backlash in the Gmail Help Forum, with numerous users asking for a disable option. One user claims to have lost their job after using the feature to send draft documents to their boss. The GIF wasn't appreciated and the user never received their replies, which included important corrections. Unsurprisingly, this led to a "very angry voicemail" in the morning.
>>35711 >Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs. We're truly sorry. The feature has been turned off. If you are still seeing it, please reload your Gmail page." The nature of the bug and its effect on Mic Drop remains unclear. They can't just admit it was a shit idea, huh?

>“Since 2007, a lot more of the cave has been excavated,” says study co-author Matthew Tocheri of Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Researchers initially used chemical clues in the soil around the fossils to figure out when layers of sediment were laid down and thus how old the bones and tools found inside them must be. In the latest work, the team found that the layers of sediment in the cave were not all evenly deposited and so varied widely in age even at similar depths.

Pae told the FBI he didn’t want to sit in his seat during the meal service, so he went to the back of the plane to do yoga and meditate. He became angry when his wife and flight attendants told him to return to his seat. “Pae pushed his wife because she was trying to make him stop,” the complaint said. “He felt that she was siding with the flight crew.”

>>35289 At least in your country the "states"/counties can't pass their own drug laws on top of the federal ones. Imagine if certain drugs were banned in Kent and Northumberland but weren't in Wales or Essex. That's what the US is like. Then on top of all that chaos the municipalities can top off the state laws with their own city ordinances.
>>35311 No, as you'd need to either bring territory into the U.S. (Very hard) which would require it first being a territory (Essentially land the Federal government has 100% control over and any local government is just the Feds humoring the inhabitants). You'd then apply for statehood which would require both houses approving it. This is pretty much impossible as the Republicans and Democrats have gerrymandered the country into nice even blocks so neither side can gain power and a third group cannot even startup. Neither...

Long term vegetarianism can lead to genetic mutations which raise the risk of heart disease and cancer, scientists have found.
Populations who have had a primarily vegetarian diet for generations were found to be far more likely to carry DNA which makes them susceptible to inflammation.
Scientists in the US believe that the mutation occured to make it easier for vegetarians to absorb essential fatty acids from plants.
But it has the knock-on effect of boosting the production of arachidonic acid, which is known to increase inflammatory disease and cancer. When coupled with a diet high in vegetable oils - such as sunflower oil - the mutated gene quickly turns fatty acids into dangerous arachidonic acid.
The finding may help explain previous research which found vegetarian populations are nearly 40 per cent more likely to suffer colorectal cancer than meat eaters, a finding that has puzzled doctors because eating red meat is known to raise the risk.
Researchers from Cornell University in the US compared hundreds of genomes from a primarily vegetarian population in Pune, India to traditional meat-eating people in Kansas and found there was a significant genetic difference.
“Those whose ancestry derives from vegetarians are more likely to carry genetics that more rapidly metabolise plant fatty acids,” said Tom Brenna, Professor of Human Nutrition at Cornell.
“In such individuals, vegetable oils will be converted to the more pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid, increasing the risk for chronic inflammation that is implicated in the development of heart disease, and exacerbates cancer.
“The mutation appeared in the human genome long ago, and has been passed down through the human family.”
To make the problem worse, the mutation also hinders the production of beneficial Omega 3 fatty acid which is protective against heart disease. Although it may not have mattered when the mutation first developed, since the industrial revolution there has been a major shift in diets away from Omega 3 – found in fish and nuts - to less healthy Omega 6 fats - found in vegetable oils.
"Changes in the dietary Omega 6 to Omega 3 balance may contribute to the increase in chronic disease seen in some developing countries,” added Dr Brenna.
“The message for vegetarians is simple. Use vegetable oils that are low in omega-6 linoleic acid such as olive oil.”
The mutation is called rs66698963 and is found in the FADS2 gene which controls the production of fatty acids in the body.
Previous studies have shown that vegetarianism and veganism can lead to problems with fertility by lowering sperm counts.
Separate research from Harvard University also found that a diet high in fruit and vegetables may impact fertility because men are consuming high quantities of pesticides.
Many vegetarians also struggle to get enough protein, iron, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and calcium which are essential for health. One study found that vegetarians had approximately five percent lower bone-mineral density (BMD) than non-vegetarians.
However other research suggests vegetarianism lowers the risk of diabetes, stroke and obesity.
The new research was published in the journal Molecular Biology and Evolution.

Beneath the surface of Japan's Tateyama Bay stands a sacred shrine called a Shinto. But more than being a place of spiritual importance, the underwater site is host to something else that's remarkable — a unique friendship between a man and a fish.
For more than two decades, a local diver named Hiroyuki Arakawa has been entrusted with overseeing the shrine and being a guide to others who wish to visit it. In that time, he's become well-acquainted with the local marine animals who live in the area —... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
