Tommy Emmanuel & Richard Smith: “Twitchy”

Music • Views: 19,555

YouTube

You know me; I see a Tommy Emmanuel video, I post the Tommy Emmanuel video. Because I know it’s going to be great.

“Twitchy” was originally written by Jerry Reed. This song was recorded and filmed at TuneSmith Studio outside of Nashville, TN in the spring of 2021. It’s on Tommy Emmanuel’s EP ‘Accomplice Series Vol. 2 featuring Richard Smith,’ and it features both Tommy Emmanuel and Richard Smith on guitar. Stream “Twitchy” here: tommyemmanuel.lnk.to.

The video was filmed directed by Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard for Neighborhoods Apart.

From satellite image, it seems the eye of Ida is going to be just west of Lake Pontchartrain. Kenner and the airport are probably sustaining a lot of damage, but not as severely as all those communities along the Mississippi.

A manga I was reading recently had the characters watching a schlock disaster movie about a ski resort which was subject to avalanches with sharks in them. I think it was called “Sharkalanche!”

The avalanche-full-of-sharks bit isn’t just from comics manga: I actually saw a cheapola movie on Vudu based on that very premise.
Not sure how the resort eventually dealt with the sharkalanche, I turned it off after about ten minutes….

ETA: found it: Avalanche Sharks (2014)
On my iPad, so can’t link, sorry.

re: #162 John Hughes

You’re taking about the past.

There is no future where computer driven cars are a useful part of the solution to our problems. Almost all futures where we don’t all just die involve massive increases in use of public transport to replace individual care use.

Oh, but that won’t work where I live you cry.

Here’s the trick: people won’t live where you live in the future.

Places like New York and Los Angeles and Phoenix will be self-sustaining, growing their own food on the vast land they have that requires.

No wait, they require the vast lands where few people live to do that.

And those few people still need other people in their areas to provide goods and services themselves.

So yeah, people will still live in areas like mine, and we will still need things like transportation.

I can see a future where things like agricultural equipment are largely automated, but that represents few vehicles.

Perhaps better electric vehicles combined with more renewable energy sources to charge them would work, but that would take much stronger government, and the rich and powerful won’t allow that to cut into their profits.

Boil water orders are going out across the region where Hurricane Ida is damaging everything, as water pressure drops from lack of electricity and possible broken water lines.

That said, boiling water when you have no electricity or other fuel is a challenge. It will be weeks or months before safe water systems can be restored to the area, and that’s if the infrastructure isn’t destroyed (like water towers or plumbing).

Hurricane Ida is down to category two.

No mandatory evacuation was ordered for New Orleans. The claim from the mayor is “there was no time.”

I recall when Hurricane Hugo was days away from landfall in South Carolina. There was a mayor’s conference in San Juan at the time, and the mayor of Myrtle Beach went on television from Puerto Rico to order a mandatory evacuation, saying “if you stay you’ll die.”

At the time it was not known that Hurricane Hugo would be so strong.

Making that order allowed those in the city to begin organising the requirements of a mandatory evacuation. This statement from the New Orleans mayor seems like dodging responsibility.

If the levees hold, there will be less storm surge and river flooding (assuming the floods don’t overtop the levees, which is already reported in some places). Additionally, water which goes over a levee cannot flow back out into the river.

The stronger winds will do more damage to infrastructure. For example, in Katrina, a water tower was toppled by wind onto a business building, destroying that building and the water system of that town.

This.

Ultimately though, the Levee breaches mean Katrina will probably remain more damaging (both in financial and human cost) than Ida.

depending where exactly it comes ashore, and where exactly the storm surge is, yes.

Also, since Katrina there’s been a huge rethink of what’s “typical” construction, so even if New Orleans has the same wind, the same storm surge, the same levee overtop, as it did in Katrina, there’d be a lot less death this time around.

re: #93 Eclectic Cyborg

Correct, but Katrina also fucked up most of South Mississippi and Ida hasn’t hit us anywhere near as hard.

Will there be tragic deaths due to Ida? Of course, but I still don’t think we’re looking at Katrina level casualties, even with the Covid factor.

Ida is going to screw up west Mississippi, at least according to the track forecast.

Ida is going to screw up west Mississippi, at least according to the track forecast.

It will cause some problems, but she’s already down to a Cat 2. That’s usually survivable for most people. The ones at the highest risk are those who live close to lakes and rivers that may flood.

Depending how big your apartment is, and who’s there… I can see it.

Having casual conversation with those in adjacent cubicles — going to lunch with friends in other departments. Much of my social life centered on my colleagues. Have definitely missed that community since I retired and would be missing it now if I were still employed.

LaPlace is also where about 18% of the US’s crude oil is refined and stored. Oil tanks are not constructed particularly strong; I would expect a large numbers of failures, spilling crude and refined oil products.

On Hurricane Katrina and loss-of-life, bodies were found months after the storm, and forensic analysts were searching things like credit card or bank accounts to see if there was activity after the storm to verify people were simply somewhere else.

LOL, workers pining to return to their cubicles, sure thing, New York Times.

I’ve been retired for a little over a year now but I hated the last four months working from home. I missed all of the random conversations with the people who worked in the building, and I liked being somewhere other than my house for those 40 hours per week. I even missed the couple that ran the gift/snack shop in the building. And I missed already being dressed to stop for groceries or take-out on the drive home.

Meanwhile on the Left Coast, Nora is downgraded to a tropical storm, expected to dissipate over the mountains of Mexico.

Tropical Storm Julian in the central Atlantic is now a post-tropical depression.

Tropical Depression Ten in the central Atlantic is expected to become a tropical storm as it travels north, well east of Bermuda.

Disturbance One just off Virginia Beach is moving east, and has a low probability of developing.

Disturbance Two, over Sierra Leone, is expected to push out to sea and has an 80% chance of development over the next five days. It is too far away to predict whether it will become a threat to the Lesser Antilles.

It sprinkled here today west of the mountains. The GFS model had predicted this several days ago, as the monsoonal flow was strong.

Nora remnant won’t bring us anything, but there is a chance of sprinkles in a couple of days given the flow from the south.

It doesn’t help much, but if the mountains can get some rain, without lightening starting fires, that is a good thing.

It’s been noted by media analysts that many such articles (and those involving investment, particularly in the stock market or real property) are written by pro-business or pro-capitalism cheerleaders.

You see it in such dodges when someone like me says “the stock market only exists to extract wealth from the middle class or poor.” The rejoinder is usually something like “invest in a Roth IRA or an index fund.” That’s great if you have enough money to invest in those things.

Or, when economists were lamenting people were not putting enough money away in savings (particularly savings accounts, nevermind most people living paycheck-to-paycheck and banks paying shyte interest on savings accounts anyway). When people did pile up a bunch of money in savings accounts, suddenly the tune was “people aren’t spending enough money to prop up the economy; you should be going out and spending on goods or investing in the stock market!”

DeSantis Locks Down Florida After Spread Of Covid Vaccination Gets Out Of Hand (The Onion, August 27, 2021)

TALLAHASSEE, FL—Urging residents to stay in their homes and away from medical facilities, Governor Ron DeSantis locked down Florida Friday after the spread of Covid vaccinations got out of hand. “With inoculation numbers skyrocketing across the Sunshine State, I have been forced the take the extreme measure of locking Florida down to combat the vaccine spread,” said DeSantis, explaining that until CDC data shows a sustained drop in the vaccination rate, all pharmacies and clinics would be mandated to close. “I cannot stress enough the importance of wearing bicep coverings to protect yourself from Covid vaccines. Because if gone unchecked, the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine variants could end up saving the lives of thousands of Floridians. So, please be on your guard.” At press time, DeSantis was encouraged by new evidence confirming that Florida’s life expectancy was steadily dropping.

There is no reason that most cities cannot switch their vehicle fleets over to electric, they never drive long distances away from a recharging station.

Even small town fleets.

Back when I was on my village board, I made a pitch to replace our aging pickup truck which requires lots of maintenance with an electric car. Village said nope, not unless you can find someone to donate that.

Our truck requires constant maintenance, and it is rare to drive it more than two miles. (The times I’ve driven it, I wouldn’t want to go out of town with it because I was afraid I’d be walking back.)

I made a pitch to Smart USA for a free (or at least reduced price) car for our village along with an endorsement from the Westminster Mercedes-Benz dealer, noting I’ve been driving my (gasoline) car all over this rugged area with no complaints (except the wheel weights being shaken off once), along with trips all over North America.

They wouldn’t do it. (I get it, car manufacturers are in business to make money, they are not charities. I figured it was worth the pitch simply because of the ad copy they could generate from it on how reliable their cars are that you can use them in such an isolated area and not worry about breaking down.)

Sorry Antivaxxer is putting up new posts, saying they’re trying to catch up with the crushing backlog. New entry:

Brian Alexander Eskew, 48, Anti-vaxxer, expressed regret not getting vaccinated in final days.

According to this obituary (goes to Wheeler & Woodlief Funeral Home) Brian died on July 22. He died of COVID. At least he leaves with a bit of redemption admitting that he was wrong and allowed his sister to spread the word.

He thought the pandemic was the PLANdemic, the conspiracy theory that this was all some kind of new world order plot to control everyone: [screen capture from social media follows]

Juneau is in the process of switching our public transit bus fleet over to electric busses.
The first is on line and more are on order. The feds have provided a substantial subsidiary to assist in purchasing electric busses.

The City also has a few electric cars in their fleet.

and again, it is a matter of mentality: a lot of folks still remember Rush Limbaugh saying he would rather die than drive a Prius, etc., as Teslas are simply a symbol of elitist virtue-signaling.

In a completely unrelated matter, I played at a local festival in Kirn, out in the middle of the SW German provinces. Menu comprised Bratwurst and meat-filled Knödel, French fries, and and at least seventeen kinds of cakes, not a vegetable in sight save for the ketchup.

But then it struck me, most of these folks have a garden at home and all the salad and veggies they need at this time of year. If they go to a festival, they want the sort of treats they cannot just bring in from the back yard.

Our local power company will help electric car owners install a charging outlet at their home. Also the power company along with the Fred Meyers Store have charging outlets in their parking lots.

It’s been estimated that there are 200-300 electric cars in town.

I was wondering why Alaska of all places with its vast distances and sparse population density…but that makes great sense.

There’s a very controversial proposal to build a road from “The End of the Road” to Skagway so we would be connected to the mainland highway system. It would be about 55 miles of new construction alongside the east side of Lynn Canal. The problem is that it would be mostly full bench construction created by blasting out a road bed from the sidehill. The road would also cross about 65 active avalanche slide areas. It would be nearly impossible to keep the road open in the winter. The State DOT says they can build it for $500 million but I think it would actually be 2 or 3 times that cost.

If authorized, this would be one of the last mega road construction projects in the United States. This is a project similar to the Glenwood Canyon I-70 project in Colorado. There are a lot of big time Highway Engineers who would dearly love to have a project such as this on their resumé. World wide recognition.

The sad part is that I don’t the volume of traffic would justify the cost. Cheaper to just subsidize the ferry system instead of building a road.

We do have the Heartland Expressway road construction going on here now (US-385), the completed section from the South Dakota line to just south of Alliance, with construction prep going on now (including the razing of Angora’s ghost town section) between Alliance and Northport, plus nine miles east of Scottsbluff to Bridgeport (US-26) including new viaducts to pass over or under railroads (the part west of Scottsbluff to Mitchell is complete, and there are a few more miles to complete west of Mitchell to Wyoming), and the completed section of NE-71 from Scottsbluff to Kimball (two miles remain to Interstate 80).

It’s not as kewl for highway engineers though because there isn’t much to blow up here besides sandstone in the Sandhills. (All of this infrastructure was funded during the Obama Administration but you won’t find anyone around here who even knows that because our local media sources never reported on it).

But the explosives in the bad guys’ car, after we blew up the car, were a secondary explosion that killed a bunch of people in the building they were in front of at the time.

It would appear what China wants is for us to send forces back in to help the Taliban.

I suppose giving the Taliban government intelligence about terrorist networks is one thing, or striking them with drones from afar (with the new government’s permission) would be okay, but after getting our forces out I really don’t want to see them go back.

In a demonstration that differed markedly from the previous two nights of protests outside the Phi Gamma Delta house, University of Nebraska-Lincoln students and supporters largely shifted their attention away from the fraternity on Thursday night and toward one another.

For more than two hours, speakers who had signed up in advance shared deeply personal testimonies from the steps of the Nebraska Union — directly across from the Fiji house at 1425 R St. where a sexual assault was reported to have happened Monday night.

After two evenings of tense gatherings that included chants and demands focused on the fraternity and the 19-year-old member who is accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl and UNL student, the tone and nature of Thursday’s demonstration changed, focusing instead on survivors of sexual assault.

More than a dozen activists, students and supporters took turns speaking to the crowd on Thursday, including Omaha state Sen. Megan Hunt and representatives of student government.

Third night of Fiji protests focuses on survivors, continues call for cultural reckoning at UNL (Lincoln, Nebr. Journal-Star)

[Chancellor Ronnie] Green temporarily suspended Fiji — already on probation for previous violations of university policy — on Wednesday afternoon, about 36 hours after the sexual assault was reported.

The fraternity was put on probation in 2015 for reports of reckless alcohol abuse and sexual misconduct among its members, and it was later suspended from 2017-20.

Fiji members were linked with confrontations with individuals taking part in the January 2017 Women’s March in Lincoln, which led to a campus Title IX investigation.

The alleged assault that prompted the protests was the 103rd rape reported to UNL Police since 2005 — and the 78th such incident reported since 2015, according to data reviewed by the Journal Star. Another rape was reported to campus police hours after the one alleged to have happened at the Fiji house.

I’m supposed to respect the beliefs of people like this, I’m told.

In an interview with LifeSiteNews in October 2020, Bishop Athanasius Schneider laid out an “apocalypse” scenario regarding forced global vaccines derived from aborted babies. Now, as governments throughout the world including France, Italy, Australia, Canada, and the United States, just to name a few, are beginning to or have already mandated the abortion-tainted COVID jab, His Excellency’s words couldn’t have been any more prophetic.

Bishop Schneider told LifeSite that should there be a mandatory global vaccine for coronavirus derived from cell lines from aborted babies, “then we will enter into the time of the Apocalypse.”

This part. This guy is either a Liar for Jesus (bad enough) or really believes this stuff (Dangerous for Jesus)

Bishop Schneider did hope that his scenario of a forced global vaccine using aborted baby cells in its manufacture would not come to pass. He said, “But I hope that this will not come at a global level. When this does come, then we will enter into the time of the Apocalypse. In a time of Apocalypse, of which we already now have some signs, we must invoke evermore the angels, Saint Michael Archangel, and the message of Our Lady of Fatima that is becoming ever more timely and necessary.”

I am excited to see this, I hope Sting makes a cameo, although I hear he is busy making wine.

With a $165-million budget and a cast to rival the star system of Arrakis, hopes are high for “Dune” as it prepares to land in Venice next Friday for its world premiere.

The cast list is exciting enough, including Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac and Javier Bardem.

But what has sci-fi fans really feverish is the man behind the camera: Canadian Denis Villeneuve.

Through hits like “Sicario” and “Arrival”, Villeneuve has put himself alongside Christopher Nolan as one of the rare directors who can deliver deadly serious cinema that also packs theatres.

Crucially, he has also proved a safe pair of hands when handling totems of 20th-century geekdom, after his critically adored “Blade Runner 2049”, a sequel to the sci-fi classic.

Set many millennia in the future, “Dune” follows the tribal battles for control of “spice”, a drug that extends life and delivers prophetic powers, on the inhospitable planet of Arrakis, which also happens to be infested with giant worms.

Too many Christians think it’s “the Mark of the Beast” or some other sort of codswallop. So instead you have to jump through all sorts of hoops designed to prevent voting (no picture concealed carry permits in Texas good, state-issued college ID not good).

In my state where they’re trying to pass such a law now (allegedly to stop mail voting fraud, which the state admits has never occurred in the history of the state), counties like mine have the DMV only open a couple hours on one day a month. Oh, and they want photocopies of your license to send with your ballot. And if your license doesn’t have a Social Security Number on it, then they want a copy of your Social Security Card (the one that says “this is not an ID card”) and go find a copy machine to make it (the nearest public copy machine to me [pay] is sixteen miles away). None of those costs are “poll tax” though. Nor is the time spent out of your day. Nor is the risk of identity theft with a copy of your actual SSN card. And we don’t have polling stations out here, mail is the only way we’re allowed to vote.

Weather radio: Monsoonal rains (including the remnants of Hurricane Nora) will start tomorrow, bringing much-needed rain but also increase the risk of mudslides in burn-scarred areas of Wyoming. Over in the Panhandle, little chance of monsoons here, as outflow from Tropical Storm Ida will push temperatures above 100°F and humidity very high before severe thunderstorms set in.

I still don’t have a furnace or air conditioner; that’s now set for September. It’s tough to get someone out here even when you’ve done business with them before and payed all up front.

Our manager kind of let it slip that he’d be ok with us driving over to the office occasionally, driving in, swiping our badges and driving out. I’m going to work from home, because in between my mother requiring more time, and my brother probably needing to be driven to the pain clinic, I don’t need to be adding a 2 hour commute. Grrrrr.

I just learned last Wednesday that they are going to lease out our office building to someone else. It is no big deal to me as I have worked from home for the last 5 years or so. So I guess none of us developers will be going back to the office any time soon.

The Five Day Graphical Tropical Outlook map has changed considerably.

The disturbance off Virginia Beach has dissipated.

A new area of disturbed weather in the southwest Caribbean Sea from Panama to Nicaragua is being watched for development.

The disturbance now moving off the coast of Guinea is almost certain to immediately become a tropical depression, and projections show it (depending on winds) half way across the Atlantic in five days. Still too early to say if it becomes a threat to the Lesser Antilles.

Tropical Depression Ten is still no threat to land as it intensifies.

Tropical Storm Ida is approaching the capital of Mississippi, Jackson.

Is Ida worse than Katrina?

By what measure? As a measure of wind strength, Ida is stronger (but so was Rita). Rita was stronger than Katrina by barometric pressure.

Size has Katrina ahead, and storm surge is where Katrina did its worst damage, both initially and then the overwhelming of the flood control systems in NOLA vicinity, which is where the majority of lives were lost.

As of right now, there’s mercifully fewer lost lives from Ida, but that could change given conditions like power outages, levee failures, etc.

Wow…psych prof resigns because student refuses to wear mask in class.

Bernstein, who was already informed that two of his absent students tested positive for COVID-19, then announced his resignation on the spot and left the class immediately.

“At that point I said that whereas I had risked my life to defend my country while in the Air Force, I was not willing to risk my life to teach a class with an unmasked student during this Pandemic,” Bernstein said in an email to The Red & Black. “I then resigned my retiree-rehire position.”

Huff said she sat at the front of the class on Tuesday in shock, anger and silence for a few minutes, like the rest of her peers, as she tried to comprehend what happened.

“Professor Bernstein said, ‘That’s it. I’m retired,’ and we watched him pack all of his papers into his bag and walk out of the classroom,” Huff said.

Republicans are (probably subconsciously) trying to use the fact that most Republicans are White to imply that most Whites are Republican, which isn’t true. The reality is that Black vaccination rates do reflect a greater hesitancy than is true of Whites overall, but Blacks are less hesitant that White Republicans, the focal point of the aforementioned criticism.

A poll from NBC News released on Tuesday offers an interesting lens on the question. It broke out self-reported vaccination rates by a number of demographic groups. People who voted for President Biden last year, for example, overwhelmingly say they’ve been vaccinated. Republicans largely say they haven’t. In this poll, unlike many others, Whites are less likely to report having been vaccinated than Blacks…

… Yes, Black Americans are both more likely to express hesitation about getting vaccinated than Whites and (in part due to structural challenges) are less likely to have gotten a shot. But by focusing on Black vaccination rates, Republicans are simply trying to draw a false equivalence with the left broadly, using those higher rates among Whites to cast Blacks as laggards — even though White rates are higher because of White Democrats. If you remove White Democrats from the White totals, Black vaccination rates would almost certainly be higher…

re: #275 Belafon

Let’s be absolutely blunt:

White nationalist GOPers are the ones who are most hesitant or resistant to taking the vaccine. Period. They refuse on ideological grounds and cannot and will not change their views even in the face of overwhelming evidence, like the fact that there’s no wave of vaccinated people who are getting sick, hospitalized, or dying.

They’d sooner take ivermectin than admit that they’re wrong. They’d sooner die gasping for breath on a ventilator than admit that vaccination was the right way to approach things. Cases are blowing up around the nation because whites are the ones spreading cases far and wide (it takes people who are mobile and able to travel to get the disease spreading as it does).

POC who have been hesitant to get vaccinated are among those who could be convinced to get vaccinated with sufficient buy in and support from the community - like church groups, local political groups, local businesses, etc.

So of course, white GOPers who are bigots are trying to blame the surge in cases in the Gulf Coast states and the South on illegals, which isn’t supported by facts or reality.

One of the ways we know vaccines aren’t causing cases: states with the highest vaccination rates have among the lowest hospitalization rates and lowest death rates during the current surge. New England, which has the highest vaccination rates, has low hospitalization rates.

It’s the dogmatic dumbassery that is doing more to kill people than anything else.

Based on the people around me, it’s those that think only the “Christian” party should be in charge are the unvaccinated ones. And it’s people who otherwise are the typical neighborly types that’ll help you if you need help. But, I think, even for them, it’s about having to admit being wrong, and they have trouble with that. I suspect that for far too many, admitting that they are wrong about vaccination would puncture their “Blue Lives Matter” bubble.

Julie Smith sued on behalf of her husband, Jeffrey, 51, who has been in the intensive care unit at West Chester Hospital since July 15. He was intubated and put on a ventilator on August 1. Julie Smith is acting as Jeffrey Smith’s guardian.

According to the lawsuit, Julie Smith investigated alternative treatments for COVID-19 and asked the hospital to give her husband Ivermectin. It refused.

Jeffrey Smith is on “death’s doorstep”, according to the lawsuit. Julie Smith asked Dr. Fred Wagshul about Ivermectin and he prescribed 30 mg of Ivermectin a day for 21 days for Jeffrey. Julie also offered to sign a release relieving the hospital of all liability.

The hospital refused and that’s when Julie sued.

I hate to burst your bubble, but all of those things are fully capable of happening in a physics department as well.

Possibly. They don’t build an entire faith network around it though.

A physicist could certainly hold onto an idea which is soundly debunked. That physicist will be marginalised by his or her profession.

He or she will not be elected president of the American Physical Society.

He or she will not become violent in board meetings of other physicists and throw airport stanchions around or destroy display cases in stores when other physicists don’t agree.

One of my high school friends was a minister, got kicked out of his church, fumbled around for several years at different jobs, started a new ministry. He got enough of the rednecks in our home town to follow him and worked his way up from back yard to holding services in a go-cart track side room to finally getting the money to lease his own building…and then history repeated itself and he was run out of his new church. I believe a certain amount of ill advised fucking and misuse of funds was involved both times.

re: #310 Anymouse 🌹🏡😷

You should go look up Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, and the attempts to suppress her figuring out that stars were made of hydrogen:

Shapley persuaded Payne to write a doctoral dissertation, and so in 1925 she became the first person to earn a PhD in astronomy from Radcliffe College of Harvard University.[5] Her thesis title was Stellar Atmospheres; A Contribution to the Observational Study of High Temperature in the Reversing Layers of Stars.[8][1]

Payne was able to accurately relate the spectral classes of stars to their actual temperatures by applying the ionization theory developed by Indian physicist Meghnad Saha. She showed that the great variation in stellar absorption lines was due to differing amounts of ionization at different temperatures, not to different amounts of elements. She found that silicon, carbon, and other common metals seen in the Sun’s spectrum were present in about the same relative amounts as on Earth, in agreement with the accepted belief of the time, which held that the stars had approximately the same elemental composition as the Earth. However, she found that helium and particularly hydrogen were vastly more abundant (for hydrogen, by a factor of about one million).[9] Her thesis concluded that hydrogen was the overwhelming constituent of stars (see Metallicity), making it the most abundant element in the Universe.[10]

However, when Payne’s dissertation was reviewed, astronomer Henry Norris Russell, who stood by the theories of American physicist Henry Rowland, dissuaded her from concluding that the composition of the Sun was predominantly hydrogen because it would contradict the current scientific consensus that the elemental composition of the Sun and the Earth were similar. In 1914, he had written in an academic article:

The agreement of the solar and terrestrial lists is such as to confirm very strongly Rowland’s opinion that, if the Earth’s crust should be raised to the temperature of the Sun’s atmosphere, it would give a very similar absorption spectrum. The spectra of the Sun and other stars were similar, so it appeared that the relative abundance of elements in the universe was like that in Earth’s crust.[11]

Payne consequently described her results as “spurious”.[8]:186[10] A few years later, astronomer Otto Struve described her work as “the most brilliant PhD thesis ever written in astronomy”.[12] Russell also realized she was correct when he derived the same results by different means. In 1929, he published his findings in a paper that briefly acknowledged Payne’s earlier work and discovery, including the mention that “[t]he most important previous determination of the abundance of the elements by astrophysical means is that by Miss Payne […]”;[13] nevertheless, he is often credited for the conclusions she reached.[13][14][15]

Note that Russell gets credited with her discoveries.

The hospital needs to appeal right away. Conservative religion cannot be inserted into the law through the courts. We’ve seen what happened when Sidney Powell got in the courts; we got Kraken, Gondor I and II, Cyber Morans, and an insurrection.

Actually and after thought, the hospital needs to send the judge a request to specify dosage, medium (IV, infusion, pill, paste?), and how long the patient should be receiving it.

If the judge tells them to apply their medical judgement, the reply is, “that would be zero.”

This one has over 12 mutations from what I heard.

A new coronavirus variant, C.1.2, has been detected in South Africa and a number of other countries, with concerns that it could be more infectious and evade vaccines, according to a new preprint study (goes to MedRxiv) by South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases and the KwaZulu-Natal Research Innovation and Sequencing Platform. The study is awaiting peer review.

Scientists first detected C.1.2 in May 2021, finding that it was descended from C.1, which scientists found surprising as C.1 had last been detected in January. The new variant has “mutated substantially” compared to C.1 and is more mutations away from the original virus detected in Wuhan than any other Variant of Concern (VOC) or Variant of Interest (VOI) detected so far worldwide.

(more)

New COVID variant detected in South Africa, most mutated variant so far (Jerusalem Post, August 29)

I would have to puzzle out the paper to weigh what “most mutated” really means in the context of both the virus and the vaccine. Could be important, maybe not.

You might want to look at the North Carolina Piedmont or mountain regions around cities like Asheville, Winston-Salem, or Raleigh Durham. I would suspect that you would want to stay fairly close to a major urban area as the rural areas can get _quite_ rural away from cities.

You might also want to look at the northern part of the Shenandoah Valley. Winchester has a decent regional medical system. As does Hagerstown, Maryland. Both serve the regional areas. Hagerstown’s serves up into rural parts of Pa as well. The main transportation artery is Interstate 81.

Probably good to remember that the further north you get, the crappier the winter weather gets. Particularly in the mountains. In Pa there are times when one can snowed in for days in the remoter parts.

re: #362 Eclectic Cyborg

The C.1 variant originated there.

As the article noted, it’s been a long time since that variant was seen, which made the C.1.2 variant surprising (since it comes from C.1).

The study also found that the C.1.2 lineage has a mutation rate of about 41.8 mutations per year, which is nearly twice as fast as the current global mutation rate of the other variants. The scientists stated that this short period of increased evolution was also seen with the Alpha, Beta and Gamma variants, suggesting that a single event, followed by a spike in cases, drove faster mutation rates.

More than half of the C.1.2 sequences have 14 mutations, but additional mutations have been noticed in some of the sequences, suggesting that evolution within the lineage is ongoing, according to the study.

The study seems to indicate more than half the variants are on the spike protein.

This is true. Even in Maryland there are still lots of tfg flags in Pleasant Valley along MD-67.

The most violent ones seem to be from the rural parts of the Eastern Shore, though. (The peninsula between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.) I suspect that is because the locals who had been highly isolated are now being driven out by massive, rapid and expensive development along the ocean and by large-scale corporate farming inland.

re: #365 Anymouse 🌹🏡😷

Most vaccines are designed to stimulate the immune system to go after the distinctive spike protein on the outside of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If that spike protein mutates too much it will stop being effective in getting the virus particle through the body’s cell walls so it can replicate since it will no longer be a good key-and-lock fit for the ACE-2 receptor site.

I’d hold off worrying too much about C1.2 until we see how it behaves in the wild. The Delta mutation was very good for the virus in terms of evolution hence its dominant position in infections around the world today but the changes in its spike proteins from the baseline virus weren’t enough for the existing vaccines and immune systems to stop working entirely.

West can be expensive. Also: wildfires and drought / water management issues.

And earthquakes in some areas.

Of course the southeast has water management issues too. Look at NOLA. And Tennessee.

I would suggest finding a nice university town… while no guarantees, the folks there tend to be educated, most have some sort of liberal arts program so music, art, theatre are around (even in a small scale) and there is usually a decent medical support structure for the kids and the folks working for the school.

re: #374 A Mom Anon

My husband is actually from MD, he lived in Hagerstown as a kid. Medical facilities and decent insurance are a must with all of hubby’s healthcare issues. I was looking on a map at locations, northern VA or maybe eastern PA would be good if we can find a decent house at a non insane price.

I’m just exhausted from fighting insurance companies for my care, idiots who live here not giving a shit who lives or dies, low wages and stupid government. I know it’s impossible to escape wingnut idiocy entirely, but there has to be somewhere doing better than this.

Warning about PA. It’s like a 5 on a dice cube Parts of the corners and the center are blue but the rest of the state is redder than Mississippi.

re: #351 A Mom Anon

Ok, I have simply had it with Georgia. Where to go is the next question. Which states have the best affordable health care, non insane real estate prices and where people don’t openly hate each other? I’m finding conflicting info about healthcare which is, along with real estate prices the primary factor. We also have to stay East of the Mississippi because of husband’s family reasons. Any thoughts?

NJ is probably out of the running, due to our property tax issues. South Jersey where I am tends to be cheaper than North Jersey, but it’s more expensive the closer you get to Philly. I’m sure same applies to North Jersey/NYC.

Maybe Delaware? I can ask a buddy of mine who’s in south DE. It’s pretty rural, so if you have specific health care issues, that could be a problem. The Wilmington area puts you with an hour of Philly and should be cheaper.

Sorry you’re going through all of that. I grew up in Carrol County, MD in the first part of the 70s. I actually just took a road trip down there recently. It’s certainly more developed from when I was a kid and we were about 20 miles from Baltimore.

I moved to AZ in the late 70’s when it was conservative but still had a funky liberal alternative counter-culture scene especially in and around Tucson, Flagstaff and Sedona.

It also gave us some liberal luminaries like Mo Udall and Bruce Babbitt.

Most of all, it was such a backwater that just about anybody who wanted to move there could get established and if you did your thing well you could live decently.

And even the good ol’ boys did not really care what you were doing as long as you were making an honest living.

Alas, the place has gone full-on crazy conservative since then, and the few refuges for the sane are terribly pricey.

Disturbance One is on the coast of Guinea. It should blow up right away. Disturbance Two is the big blob from Panama to Nicaragua. Chances aren’t high at the moment but is worth watching.

Probably a wise idea (BBC)

Covid: EU set to impose travel restrictions on US as cases rise

The European Union is set to recommend pausing non-essential travel from the US as Covid-19 cases surge.

The daily average for hospital admissions has risen past 100,000 for the first time since last winter.

The recent wave, driven by the Delta variant, is most severe in the US South but cases are rising nationwide.

The guidance from the 27-nation bloc, which is expected this week, would reverse advice from June that lifted restrictions ahead of tourism season.

The recommendation will be nonbinding, meaning individual countries will be allowed to decide if they still wish to allow US visitors with proof of vaccination, negative tests, or quarantine, according to EU diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity.

He is the author of the book “Good Without God.”

He presents himself as a humanist, but is an atheist. (Humanists can be of any religion or none.)

In 2019, a survey by the Harvard Crimson found that nearly 17 percent of students there identified as atheist.

At the forefront of movement at Harvard is Epstein, who presents humanism as a way for atheists to reject the existence of a higher power while still being part of a faith community.

The places I suggested are all along the outer periphery of the “Great North Eastern Megalopolis”. The urban centers that I mentioned are growing and prices rising. But, at least as of a few years ago, there were still areas outside the towns that were not yet gentrified.

I did not mention Charlottesville, Va (Home of the University of Virginia) because development there seems to be heavy. But it reportedly has excellent medical facilities.

Hagerstown is interesting in that the Hagerstown Valley (part of the Great Appalachian Valley, which continues northward as Cumberland Valley in Pennsylvania, and southward as Shenandoah Valley in West Virginia and Virginia) has a lot of little towns that are just now starting to grow after years of decline. And beyond these are still a lot of agricultural areas. So finding decent real estate prices may not require going as far out as other areas.

Heh, while Hagerstown Mall still has the same tractor display that it did 40 years ago, the area has really developed. Lots of trucking and other companies have warehouse and maintenance facilities there.

Another possibility might be the Martinsburg, West Virginia region between Winchester and Hagerstown.

I just learned last Wednesday that they are going to lease out our office building to someone else. It is no big deal to me as I have worked from home for the last 5 years or so. So I guess none of us developers will be going back to the office any time soon.

I wouldn’t entertain a job that required me to go into an office on a regular basis. I’ve been working remotely for more than 20 years (often with the occasional in office meeting). The thought of going into an office is such a turn off to me I’d rule it out immediately, even at a significant salary increase. And now? They could double my salary and I’d rule it out. The only thing I see when I’m around people is little Coronas around each person’s head and my wondering if they’ll be the person who winds up killing me.

If you can stand the winters, I’d highly recommend my area up here in western NY. It ticks the rest of your boxes: excellent healthcare systems, especially the closer you get to Rochester, Buffalo or Syracuse; reasonable RE prices as long as you’re not looking in one of the tonier suburbs; VERY good insurance

Qw5aTmC8TSVlZ9ooy+LpPJKnilXiHz5SMq/CdPzfT+oIL/Hh6z05XE0a5vFJ6zAwWMFHNF8HNDoalTgSqhipIxZDtXJO4ayPtst/Tbz41V92g08j7ETL73puvdWaKTlomOZl62mr4RYvy1jMKAIB2A==

Yes, the taxes are a little high, but other fees like auto registration are lower than what you’re used to down south.

As for the politics? Get half an hour outside the cities and there are TFG flags flying and wingnutty reps (but redistricting may fix some of that next year). You’ll have a D governor and Schumer and Gillibrand and D state lej, though. Much less overall crazy than Georgia!

All the places we’re talking about seem to have that “issue.” Even if the hurricanes don’t drop in every other year.

Yes, for example, the small liberal arts colleges in Indiana such as Earlham and DePauw are in otherwise solidly R areas where people will casually ask which church you go to. If you’re white, it can be ok if you just stake out your own life and find a niche. Oh, and not much happening in the summer when the kids are gone.
