Re: “HumBug: A Walk in the Woods

Anthony, Thanks for "Humbug," which I recently discovered. A retired doctor and I, both amateur naturalists, have noticed a dramatic decline in numerous living species. Most noticeable this spring (Crescent City area) is the lack of butterflies and honey bees. I hike around this area every day, and I have yet to see a honey bee!! I have apple trees and plums in my yard, too. No honey bees and poor pollination.
As for butterflies, I see one to three painted ladies a day and nothing else. I took the Go Road to the top of the Klamaths yesterday, and despite this flower-strewn trip where I usually see many Lorquins admirals and California sisters basking on the road, I saw none.
My total butterfly count in this extensive exploration was two mating blues.
My friend and I have noticed many more significant declines or absences in many areas of the natural world. My question: What have you heard and observed on this dramatic decline in living species and ecological relations locally and internationally? I am constantly astounded at the lack of information available in this critical concern. Joe Barnwell, 911 Small Ave, Crescent City, CA 95531. (707) 4764-9531. Thanks for your blog and interest.

Re: “HumBug: The Bald Faced Truth


One of our family's camping traditions was to set-out a scrap of meat to attract yellow jackets...and soon...the bald-faced wasp would appear, (we called it a "Wolf-Wasp" because it would grab the yellow jacket from mid-air, bite off its head and fly away.

Both species love the previous year's Jerusalem Artichoke stalks to make pulp for their nests. They grow like weeds in our coastal climate.

Thanks for the dye idea.

We'll give it a go.

Re: “Sunshine Vitamin vs. Skin Cancer

Everyone in Northern CA should assume they have low vitamin D. Take the 5000 unit cap from Wal Mart, but, get some sun too!

I go to Hawaii in the spring and lay out with the seniors. Tough shit about cancer, but, if you live your whole life, you will die, 100% of the time.

I have already had a lump of Squamous Cell removed, so, this stuff is just going to happen!

Having low Vitamin D is linked to many disease states, and is implicated in behavioral disorders as well, so you are damned, one way or the other... Supplements don't work as well as sunlight for mood disorders, so build the sun-room!

Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

This is all pure speculation. The only data we actually have is that they did not seem to look at the ship or take an interest in it. The idea that the natives were on the edge of survival is not supported by anthropologists and accounts we have. It seems likely from what is know of other natives they had excellent eyesight. If you saw a large foreign object 1/4 mile offshore or anywhere (in the sky?) would you look it? Something was definitely going on there to prevent that.

Re: “Youth Struck

We are grandparents, and marched with the Arcata High students to show our support for their action. We are proud of them and want to encourage their activism. They will be voting very soon, they are engaged, asking questions and not hearing good answers from their leaders.
Thanks for your article, and future involvement in supporting climate action. It is time to panic...

I know this is *way* old, but I keep thinking about it, and what an awesome bike ride you could create from this.

Re: “The Weirdness of English

Ing From Middle English -ing, from Old English -ing, -ung (-ing, a suffix forming nouns from verbs), from Proto-Germanic *-ing, *-ung, from Proto-Indo-European *-enk-. Cognate with West Frisian -ing (-ing), Dutch -ing (-ing), Low German -ing (-ing) Low German -ink (-ink), German -ung (-ing), Swedish -ing (-ing), Icelandic -ing (-ing).

Do from Middle English don, from Old English dn, from Proto-Germanic *dn, from Proto-Indo-European *deh- (to put, place, do, make).
The past tense form is from Middle English didde, dude, from Old English dyde, *diede, from Proto-Germanic *ded/*ded, from Proto-Indo-European *ddehti, an athematic e-reduplicated verb of the same root *deh-.

The use of do in interrogative, negative, and, formerly, affirmative sentences, unusual in Germanic languages, is thought to be calqued from Welsh.

Re: “Cancer, Part 1: The Unwinnable War

I think Dr. Nelson is unduly optimistic with his use of "will." But he's certainly correct in emphasizing the fact that there's no single "cancer" disease, but many (hundreds?) diseases sharing the common feature of invasive abnormal cell growth.

Re: “Cancer, Part 1: The Unwinnable War

Dr. William Nelson, director of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins said it best, "The war on cancer will not be won in one dramatic battle, it will be a series of skirmishes."

My back yard was overrun with earwigs and sow bugs until I raised 3 chicks. Now, not an insect in sight.
