Another good reason to keep my sons on a regular sleep schedule, and me too! Good article.
The question "What is sleep" is the challenge now being presented to research scientists, and the winning answer(s) are to be chosen by thousands of eleven-year-old school children.
Hi John, I'm indebted to you, I used your comprehensive and fascinating presentation on the Kelsey brothers extensively when writing my earlier story,
Glad you like this one! Only so much I can do in 500-odd words...
great article Barry. For a more detailed look at the down side of the Kelsey Brothers in California take a look at:
Thanks for this Geoff--I appreciate both pixels and paper, for all the reasons you mention (especially pixels for travel on my ipad mini). Carr's book is a great read, whether one agrees or not. I was annotating constantly. e.g. this: "...we are training our brains to pay attention to the crap." (Carr quoting Michael Merzenich.
It is more than "ironic" that Carr's book is available on Kindle. That is the new printing press of our day. I come from the era of the print culture and I am now with my feet in both camps. I have seen no credible studies that support Carr's thesis. Bookmarks Magazine is quoted as saying "Many bought into his argument about the neurological effects of the Internet, but the more expert among them (Jonah Lehrer, for one) cited scientific evidence that such technologies actually benefit the mind." Citing "neurological evidence" is always a dangerous game because the technology and science in that field is a quickly moving target. There are many studies of universities using openly licensed, free electronic books in place of traditional textbooks and there is no significant difference in the success rates of students in those courses. In fact, because the stress of the textbook cost is eliminated, retention rates actually go up. Some of those studies were performed here at College of the Redwoods via the Kaleidoscope project. Much of the date can be found at Lumen Learning. http://lumenlearning.com/innovative-projec… I personally enjoy reading on the internet - in an ereader, I can annotate, bookmark and easily share what I am reading with others. I can carry a dozen books with me to the cafe. I can also look up words and ideas. In fact, sometimes it is a more engaging experience. Also, some books are not available in our library - I don't have the luxury of driving down to the special collection in Stanford or Harvard. But much of what I need, I can find through Google Books. Anyway, I am a big McLuhan fan - always good to see someone writing about Gutenberg! :-)
I found 2 meter deep powdery plankton.and tunnel.
La Grange Mine is now a Eagle Rock Quarry and under the direction of the Army Core of Engineers and they do a great job....no polution...critters and trees.
I think the finding of plankton on the International Space Station as reported in Tass is interesting http://en.itar-tass.com/non-political/7456… My comment on it is:- This finding on the International Space Station makes it clear that the earth is surrounded by an aura of life, at least in the form of plankton. Though the particular type of plankton has not been identified, it has been established that it is not the type of plankton, which would have possibly been picked up from the delivery launch area of Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan . Were the plankton picked up before launch, doubtless the extreme heat would have destroyed them. The ISS has been orbiting the earth since 1998 at an altitude of between 330 km / 205 mi and 435 km /270 mi It is clear that if they are first lifted from the sea into the atmosphere by rising air currents and winds, when those winds dissipate that the plankton carries on at their own steam as though drifting in the seas. The oceans have been here some 4,400 billion years, it must be posited that what ever means the plankton has used to make it into space onto the ISS, has been going on since that time. The unthinkable alternative is that the deeps, of space, is full of this life form, which of course will give the evolutionists new material, other than asteroids, with which to rework their theories of the seeding of life on earth.

Only I can talk to the dead.
Thanks for your great post. I have read your post completely and acquire more knowledge from this article. Thanks for your useful post. best sales training companies
That is, SECOND leading cause of death (just). CDC reports for 2010 in the US:
Heart disease: 597,689
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120,859
Alzheimer's disease: 83,494
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,476
Influenza and Pneumonia: 50,097
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 38,364
The March 18, 1850 Alta California lists Ben as being there but in the group opposed to killings....and that Sam Kelsey was one of the leaders. Sam is also named as a leader of this group in the paper on March 4, 1850.
Thanks Jim--I guess we should be grateful they didn't change the name of Union to Kelsey! Can you pls. reference the Alta California newspaper article for me.
In reality (according to the Alta California newspaper at the time) it was not Ben Kelsey who led the band from Sonoma on the murderous rampage against the Indians of Napa and Sonoma Counties, but it was his brother Samuel Kelsey and a man called "Growling Mad" Smith who led that group. The newspaper article states that some of the band were not arrested and that Ben (who was a member of the group) tried to talk his brother and others out of killing the people. Just thought I would try and clear Ben of that one incident although he was involved with the mining operation at Kelsey Diggings and did shoot the man in Sonoma for bothering his wife. Ben and brother Sam were founders of Union (later Arcata) and it was again Sam that shot the Indian there that David Leeper mentions in his journal.
No wall structure there with frost wedging which are like dried mud patterns too. It's the wall structure and right angles that get me..
You know anything about these "Martian ruins"?
If legit photos how do rectangular walls, with interior squared off corners, get constructed by natural forces? Any ideas? They do look similar to ancient city ruins.
