All of that knowledge, lost forever. The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world. That graphic grinds my gears every time I see it romans. Julius Caesar to be precise  Remember this when you’re conquering. Keep the books. THIS HURTS MY HEART SO MUCH EVERY TIME ITS BROUGHT UP Julius Caesar needs to be stabbed for this I know we should totally stab Caesar Does March 15th sound good for everyone?? hey everyone, guess what day it is

Being Alone, Anna, and Apparently: CNN @CNN CAN Plan Bee' is a personal robotic bee designed to mimic how bees pollinate flowers and crops cnn.it/21QKbuY jaküb @sadandchildish instead of saving the environment and helping actual bees let's spend billions on robots that do what bees would do for free CNN @CNN Plan Bee' is a personal robotic bee designed to mimic how bees pollinate flowers and crops cnn.it/21QKbuY chuppa-thingy: curlicuecal: pts-m-d: thetrippytrip: dont you just love capitalism..   Black Mirror predicted this we are all goona die my god but I get mad when someone flippantly dismisses important scientific progress because you can make it sound dumb by framing it the right way. For a start, of course a lot of science sounds dumb.  Science is all in the slogging through the minutiae, the failures, the tedious process of filling in the blank spaces on the map because it ain’t ’t glamorous, but if someone doesn’t do it, no one gets to know for sure what’s there. Someone’s gotta spend their career measuring fly genitalia under a microscope. Frankly, I’m grateful to the person who is tackling that tedium, because if they didn’t, I might have to, and I don’t wanna. But let’s talk about why we should care about this particular science and spend money on it. (And I’ll even answer without even glancing at the article.) Off the top of my head? -advances in robotics -advances in miniature robotics -advances in flight technology -advantages in simulating and understanding the mechanics and programming of small intelligences -ability to grow crops in places uninhabitable by insects (space? cold/hot? places where honeybees are non-native and detrimental to the ecosystem?) -ability to improve productivity density of crops and feed more people -less strain on bees, who do poorly when forced to pollinate monocultures of low nutrition plants -ability to run tightly controlled experiments on pollination, on the effects of bees on plant physiology, on ecosystem dynamics, etc -fucking robot bees, my friend -hahaha think how confused those flowers must be Also worth keeping in mind? People love, love, love framing science in condescending and silly sounding terms as an excuse to cut funding to vital programs. *Especially* if it’s also associated with something (gasp) ‘inappropriate’, like sex or ladyparts. This is why research for a lot of women’s issues, lgbtq+ issues, minorities’ issues, and vulnerable groups in general’s issues tends to lag so far behind the times. This is why some groups are pushing so hard to cut funding for climate change research these days. Anything that’s acquired governmental funding has been through an intensely competitive, months-to-years long screening by EXPERTS IN THE FIELD who have a very good idea what research is likely to be most beneficial to that field and fill a needed gap. Trust me.  The paperwork haunts my nightmares. So, we had a joke in my lab: “Nice work, college boy.” It was the phrase for any project that you could spend years and years working on and end up with results that could be summed up on a single, pretty slide with an apparently obvious graph. The phrase was taken from something a grower said at a talk my advisor gave as a graduate student: “So you proved that plants grow better when they’re watered? Nice work, college boy.” But like, the thing is? There’s always more details than that. And a lot of times it’s important that somebody questions our assumptions.  A labmate of mine doing very similar research demonstrated that our assumptions about the effect of water stress on plant fitness have been wrong for years because *nobody had thought to separate out the different WAYS a plant can be water stressed.* (Continuously, in bursts, etc.). And it turns out these ways have *drastically different effects* with drastically different measures required for response to them to keep from losing lots of money and resources in agriculture. Nice work, college boy. :p Point the second: surprise! Anna Haldewang is an industrial design student.  She developed this in her product design class.  And, as far as I can tell, she has had no particular funding at all for this project, much less billions of dollars.  ‘grats, Anna, you FUCKING ROCK. ps: On a lighter note, summarizing research to make it sound stupid is both easy AND fun. Check out @lolmythesis – I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. :33 Okay, so I actually know Anna. She is my classmate and my friend, and I know this project quite well. And I could not have put the above statement any better. Here’s the thing guys, bumblebees are endangered, but they have a very important roll in our ecosystem. While we are doing everything we can to stabalize the bee populations, we also have to make sure that an important job is being done in our ecosystem. This drone was a conceptual way to aid that as we work to stabalize bee populations. I have never been so mad at Tumblr before. This is a huge accomplishment for a student, let alone a female in our male dominated industry. Stop shitting on everything, it doesn’t make you cool. Oh and actually read into things before you go tearing them apart.

I’m happy to say that it does fit in, although not in the way people expect. <br/></p><p>In my dream lore, the Teletubbies on the popular show are actually toddlers, the captive young of a long-lived species of giant ancient cryptid. In my dream, the adult form of the Teletubby was an enormous shambling forest god. <br/></p><p>Weirdly, this was supported by the statement from the BBC in the wake of the Gay Tinky Winky conversation, when they argued that the male-identified character’s use of a handbag was innocent, and in no way a marker of his orientation: <b>“Tinky Winky is simply a sweet, technological baby with a magic bag.”</b></p><p>That’s right, the Beeb has stated that Tinky Winky is a <i>baby</i>.</p><p>You see, my theory says that the Tiddlytubbies, the reboot’s new “babies”, are indeed older babies or young toddlers. I argue that they are about the equivalent of one-year-old humans. The range could be from about 9 months to 18 months; but I’d say generally you would expect one-year-old humans to do the things the Tiddlytubbies do. They babble, tumble, toddle and play like slightly drunk kittens. They’re at the intersection of baby/toddler; capable of bumbling (toddling) around on their own, and they are reasonably autonomous, but still needing to be cared for and always falling over. In terms of physiology, they do resemble 1-year-olds, with the same physical proportions you would expect in a human of that age.<br/></p><p>The Teletubbies, by contrast, are more like… 3 or 4 year olds. They’re toddlers, older ones, not quite school-age: developmentally capable of having short conversations, setting up games and activities, and performing simple self-care (preparing food, putting themselves to bed). In terms of physiology, they do have the cutely rounded/stubby appearance associated with this age of toddlers, who traditionally have those classic potbellies and little round butts that stick out. <br/></p><p>And again, the BBC has stated that <i>the Teletubbies are babies</i>, not sexual beings at all.<br/></p><p>Thus, I don’t think the existence of the Tiddlytubbies suggests that the Teletubbies from the show produced them. Using the lore from the dream, they are young captive infants, being brought up in the same controlled conditions as the existing older toddlers. Within several years, this new crop of infants may approach the size and development of the existing Original Four. And, perhaps, replacing them…<br/></p></blockquote> <p class="npf_quote" data-npf='{"subtype":"quote"}'>I think I’m having an aneurism. </p></blockquote> <p>This post is canceled.

Every dog is designed to eat a raw animal-based diet, from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane. Breed-specific dog food brands are simply a marketing gimmick aimed at playing on the pet owner’s emotions, and their desire to feed their pet the best possible diet.</p> </blockquote> <p>I don’t think that dogs need an animal-based diet. If done right they can be vegan and not contribute to the murdering of innocent animals. We’ve adapted and domesticated them enough to do so. They’ve evolved to live without meat just like us.</p> </blockquote> <p>200% incorrect. Vegan diets are carbohydrate-based. Carbohydrates are inflammatory, feed cancer (glucose), contribute to periodontal disease (leading to systemic organ failure, eg heart), cause insulin spikes leading to a multitude of other issues in the long-term (thyroid, liver, diabetes, heart disease) and also cause pancreatic problems due to extreme stress on the pancreas (secreting heavy loads of carb enzymes over a long period of time). The low moisture content coupled with high <em>plant</em> protein may also cause renal failure in the long term. The preservatives used may also be linked to cancer (BHA, BHT etc), and these diets also skew the omega3/6 ratio, causing further inflammation (linked to cancer again). They cause urine alkalinity leading to urinary problems such as crystals, blockages and UTI’s.</p> <p>Brief into to dog anatomy/physiology:</p> <p>- Stomach PH: Their highly acidic stomach is designed for eliminating harmful bacteria and breaking down bone into a gel-like substance. Humans have a much more alkaline stomach acid which is why we would struggle to digest raw bone.</p> <p>-Digestive Enzymes: Higher level of proteases to break down animal protein. High bile load to help push through bacteria.</p> <p>-Dental Anatomy: Sharp pointed teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh and bones.Dogs do not chew their food as we do, they are wired to swallow chunks quickly as a basic survival instinct.</p> <p>-Jaws: Dogs also have strong jaws that physically <strong>cannot</strong> move sideways (like your own can). This sideways grinding action is a feature that allows pre-digestion of plant material. Again, dogs rip off chunks and swallow them whole.</p> <p>-Lack of Salivary Amylase: Omnivores have this for pre-digestion of carbohydrates. Dogs and cats do not. The canine pancreas secretes amylase as a backup, however this does not mean they <em>should</em> be fed a high carbohydrate diet every day for a lifetime. Processed food (incl vegan) is 40-70% carbohydrate.</p> <p>-Lysozyme: Instead of amylase, dogs have lysozyme in their saliva which is an antibacterial. This may be useful for destroying any harmful bacteria in carrion/rotten food/feces, as well as wound cleaning.</p> <p>-Gut length: The canine gut is short in length which is because flesh must be pushed through quickly. It does not need to sit and ferment, as this could allow bacteria to multiply to harmful levels. Note that plant eating animals have a long digestive tract and even multiple stomach chambers in order for plant material to be slowly broken down by the necessary enzymes.</p> <p>-Nutrient profiles. Dogs have 0% biological requirement for carbohydrates. They gain every single essential nutrient from a prey based diet such as Whole Prey/Prey Model. Vegan diets are full of processed lab-made vitamins and minerals. Many vitamin pre-mixes are made in china and shipped to the country of manufacture.</p> <p>All in all, dogs will <em>survive</em> on a high carbohydrate diet but it will cause systemic effects eventually. Similar to smoking, a junk food diet affects every dog differently and some may be affected more severely than others, and in different time spans. You can also expect high vet fees in the form of dental cleanings, dental surgeries and various health problem later on in life.</p> <p>It is not recommended that you feed your pet the equivalent of a big mac for the entirety of its life. This is essentially what kibble and vegan diets are. Evolution has changed the appearance and even the behaviour of your dog, but their digestive system is still geared towards meat. <strong>Basically, you are paying money to have a company slowly kill your pet from the inside out. <br/></strong></p> <p><strong>0/10, Not Recommended.</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>Hard science here for anyone who needs to shut down a “vegan pet owner.” It’s abuse. Feed your animal the substances they evolved to eat or do not own an animal, it’s as simple as that.</p> </blockquote> <p>Vegan dog and cat owners who try to force their pets to be vegan are absolute trash and should be dragged as hard as possible for their dangerously bad beliefs.</p> </blockquote> <p><a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/m6yjzgQMTLlgckIf5tMtRUA">@faofox</a> Don’t ever get a dog. Please. And if you have one, find a new home for it before you wind up killing it.</p></blockquote> <p>It is absolutely moronic to feed your carnivorous pets a vegan diet. Don’t you dare call yourself someone concerned with animal rights if you support starving an animal to death.</p>

Bad, Clothes, and Facebook: I L E GI O N S P R O D U C TI 0 N HOW DO I BURN VISCERAL FAT? 🔥🤔HOW DO I BURN VISCERAL FAT? Founder 👉: @king_khieu. Visceral fat for those who do not know, is a fat that is stored underneath the skin and wraps around major organs as well as blood vessels as well as other body pathways. These types of fats, especially in excess, will change your physiology and modify how your body operates, usually for the worse. Now, we will discuss how to get rid of this unwanted-harmful fat. Let's take a look below. 1 - 💪Exercise regularly. It cannot be stressed enough. Having a healthy lifestyle is the key. We recommend you exercise at least 3-4 times a week. 2 - 😨Stress may be a contributing factor to your excess fat. Cortisol, the stress hormone, will interfere with cravings, appetite control, sleep and metabolism. Try reducing your stress levels. We have written some posts on how to do this. 3 - 😴Get higher quality sleep each night. You need it for optimal recovery and keeping bodily functions in check. 4 - 🌱Nutrition is the most fundamental part of the amount of fat you have. If you exercise but have a bad nutrition, you will gain fat and increase your chances of having health problems. Try cutting out some unnecessary sugars and carbs. And consume more protein and veggies. 5 - 💧Drink more water. You want to cut out your water retention. Also, water can keep you feeling a bit more full. Thoughts? 🤔 What do you guys think?

Advice, Bad, and Friends: If you don't sacrifice for what you want, what you Want will be the sacrifice. INS TAG RAM CLEVERINVESTOR Let me ask you something...are you truly sacrificing in order to achieve your goals? . I mean are you really putting in the work and doing whatever it takes to live out your dreams? . What are you really giving up to get what you want out of life? . A little sleep? A working lunch? A little bit of time with friends? A few bucks? . I mean what are we really talking about here...working after your 9-5 job, nights and weekends, putting up a little bit of money to start your own business? . Let's get real with each other for a moment...let's get raw. REAL SACRIFICE is a firefighter running into a burning building to save someone. Or one of our brave military members committing 4 years to protect our country. A police officer thats gets shot at during a routine traffic stop. THATS SACRIFICE. . Let's put things into perspective...let's shift our mindset. As entrepreneurs we can easily find ourselves whining and complaining about our journey...how things are so "hard" or that things aren't "happening fast enough". I'm guilty of this myself. . That first year is tough, it's true...but let's not over exaggerate it and make up a story that it's worse than it actually is. Your thoughts and words have meaning and can influence your physiology so start controlling your thoughts by putting things into perspective. . - YOU will succeed eventually. - IF it were easy everyone would be rich and successful. - YOU have greatness inside you...it just needs unlocked. - THE only thing that can stop you is your mindset. . The truth is most people don't want it bad enough. So they make excuses, blame others, become cynical, and eventually give up on their dreams. You'll identify these people when you tell them about your goals and they tell you every reason why it won't work, give you bad advice, or they'll hate on you behind your back. . Success is more than a goal...it's your obligation. This has to work for ourselves and our families. Pay the price today so you can afford to pay the price tomorrow! . Remember, the ONLY thing we can control is ourselves so work on changing your language patterns to better serve you!!! ------------------ cleverinvestor

Children, Drinking, and Life: Developed the surgery that marked the #theblaquelioness start of modern day cardiac surgery Not allowed to perform the surgery because he was black "There is a reason that many of us have never heard of the incredible VivienThomas, despite the fact that he invented a surgical technique that allowed for the first successful open heart surgeries on children. Even though he is now credited with saving thousands of children’s lives, his is not a household name. After the first operations were performed using Thomas’ technique in 1944, the procedure made national news, yet Thomas was never mentioned. The technique itself was named after the two doctors Thomas worked for, both of whom were nominated for the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine because of “their” technique. Why? Because Vivien Thomas was black, at a time when blacks and whites used separate drinking fountains, when blacks had trouble finding housing in “nice” neighborhoods, when blacks were barred from entering all-white medical schools, and when blacks could not operate on white babies, even to save their lives. When Thomas’ life-saving technique was first used in 1944, Thomas was not allowed to perform the surgery himself, but the surgeon could not do it without Thomas’ help. Thomas had to stand on a chair behind the surgeon, giving instructions (and at one point stopping the surgeon from making a suture in the wrong direction). Thomas’ contributions were not recognized until 1971, when his portrait was displayed at John Hopkins University. The university awarded him an honorary doctorate degree 5 years later and appointed him to the faculty. Many of the country’s top surgeons trained under Thomas and credit him with their success." theblaquelioness

Memes, 🤖, and Human: Aaedra Nisso Correr faz bem para o cérebro e para OCC sugerem estudos GLOACREDITANIsso /ACREDITANIssooFICIAL @AcreditaNisso? Pessoas que praticam exercícios físicos de resistência, como corridas de longa distância, têm um envelhecimento mais saudável, com ganhos na saúde cerebral e cardiovascular. É o q apontam dois estudos recentes, realizados por pesquisadores da USP. No primeiro deles, publicado no jornal científico Frontiers In Human Neuroscience, exames de ressonância magnética revelaram q cérebros de jovens adultos de 18 a 25 anos corredores têm maior conectividade funcional –conexões entre regiões cerebrais distintas— do que cérebros de indivíduos sedentários, que não praticaram atividades físicas no último ano. Já o segundo, de autoria de Marcelo Hiro Akiyoshi Ichige, graduando em medicina da USP, e publicado em The Journal of Physiology em agosto deste ano, sugere que seis semanas de treinamento físico podem evitar a perda de neurônios ligados à atividade cardiovascular, corrigindo a frequência cardíaca de pessoas com o funcionamento cardiovascular prejudicado. Estudos anteriores reforçavam a tese de q atividades que exigem controle motor fino, como tocar instrumentos musicais, ou q exigem altos níveis de coordenação, como jogar golfe, podem alterar a estrutura e a função cerebral. Não havia, porém, evidências de estímulos cerebrais em atividades de repetição como a corrida. Além disso, pesquisas q relacionavam o impacto de exercícios físicos sobre o cérebro, em geral, eram realizadas com pessoas mais idosas. Ao desenvolver o estudo com jovens, pôde-se verificar q áreas do cérebro q são estimuladas com atividades como a corrida são as mesmas q são impactadas com o avanço da idade. E como os idosos têm a conectividade funcional alterada com o passar dos anos, ser ativo como um jovem adulto pode ser algo potencialmente benéfico. Cabe ressaltar que os exames de ressonância magnética q mediram a conectividade funcional foram realizados com jovens em repouso, de massa corporal e níveis educacionais semelhantes. Fonte: UOL .
