Lovely, glowing purple (thanks to my digital art program) stars from the Pleiades Star Cluster (thanks to NASA/Hubble) were used to create this space art. I thought the glowing bright stars worked perfectly with this ultraviolet royal purple color.
I found this blog post... Volcano Monitoring? Levitating Trains? The Heck? by Mike Krumboltz , who wants to point that Bobby Jindal isn't thinking clearly. He points to the notion that: "Scientists argue that the $140 million price tag is small when one considers it could help prevent a natural disaster."
I don't need $140 million dollars to tell you how to prevent a natural disaster ... I'll give them advice for $1.40.
Where's the plug, Morty? We gotta get this sucker capped before she blows!
The intent of the second link is not so much preventing natural disasters, but that volcano monitoring can "reduce the vulnerability of the people and areas most at risk from natural hazards". That second article notes that: "The USGS recently predicted that Mount Redoubt in Alaska is rumbling and expected to blow."
Mount Redoubt is its own best warning system.
It has been smoldering for weeks!
I vote for spending that $140 million on NASA so they can step…
Burning Bright Greeting Card by vintage_emporium Tyger, Tyger Burning Bright
A digital creation using a drawing "Knigstiger, Felix tigris L." by Gustav Mutzel. Gustav Mutzel (1839 - 1893) was a German artist famous for his animal art. This reprint was from 1927, by Brehms Tierleben. Inside the card you will find the first stanza of William Blake's poem "The Tyger".
Plenty of liberal folks have given Sarah Palin a hassle-and-a-half because of the ADFG stance on predator control. Personally, I think predator control isn't just dumb because PETA is against it ... I think it is just dumb because it is bad science. I would appreciate PETA's point-of-view a whole lot more if they'd cross party lines and let you know Harry Reed's home state of Nevada has plans to pick off mountain lions in the name of predator control.
Personally, I'm irritated with the scientists that think they know how to maintain populations of animals. They should have figured out in BIO101 that if we keep killing predators, we'll undoubtedly pick off the fittest prematurely and forever alter the process of natural selection.
That article I pointed to above states: "The state's deer population fell from 240,000 in 1988 to 108,000 in 2008, while its current lion population ranges from 1,500 to 2,400, according to the …
Very Gradual Change We Can Believe In T-shirt by darwin2009
Here's the T-shirt featuring the Darwinistic Obama parody of "Very Gradual Change We Can Belive In".
One of the other Zazzlers commented on this T-shirt: "Recent Gallup polls showed that only 14% of Americans believe that humans evolved gradually from other animals."
That got me Googling for the poll, or other info with regards to stats. I found this page: Poll: Most Americans Don't Believe Evolution. That author mentioned politics, and I recall Matt Damon's ridiculously rude statement's about Sarah Palin's religious beliefs.
I believe in evolution, but I don't find my belief in science incompatible with my Catholic beliefs because I am not a fundamentalist. It is easy for someone like myself to consider the bible a story of how things out to be, and not an exact d…
