  1. Past hour
  2. Another attempt will be made today, at 3:22 p.m. EDT, to launch the Crew Dragon mission. That's in just about five hours. The prospects for launch at that time are about odds-on. It's predicted that there is a 50 % chance of the weather causing the launch to be scrubbed again, in a repeat of Wednesday's experience. Should this happen, another launch window is available tomorrow, at 3:00p.m. EDT.

    Looting in Minneapolis

    I was shocked to find out (today) that the officer kept his knee on Floyd's neck for 2½ minutes after no pulse was detected.

    Islamic Collectivism

    I was in China back in 2017, and while there is some truth to what you wrote, it is also wrong in many ways as it neglects the ways in which Chinese industry leads the world, and has pretty much out-competed everyone in the global economy. The real killer here is that China has made the renminbi (¥) worth half a $US, which makes it artificially cheap. They can get away with this as they are a Communist country, but I am sure they would be a lot less successful if the ¥ was floated, as its value would rise. I am actually surprised that Trump didn't take steps to force China to float the ¥, as this would rapidly correct the trade imbalance, and could be achieved simply by making $US/¥ transfers directly from currency to currency illegal. This would force China to perform a secondary currency transfer via a floating currency, thus becoming a defacto floating currency whether they like it or not. I can't think of a better anti-China policy other than finding a way to sabotage their steel industry.

    New medical data about COVID-19

    I was sent this in a message. I asked Google for life expectancy figures for some countries in Europe, and got the following: Spain 83.33 years. Italy: 83.24 years. France 82.52 years. Belgium: 81.44 years. UK: 81.16 years. Russia: 72.12 years. Romania: 75.31 years. Serbia: 76.09 years. On average, Italians and Spaniards live more than a decade longer than Russians. Romania and Serbia are a bit better than Russia, but not by much. The UK, France, and Belgium are not far off from Italy and Spain in terms of life expectancy. Here's the same list of countries in terms of deaths per million from COVID-19 so far: Spain 580 Italy: 550 France 440 Belgium: 814 UK: 562 Russia: 30 Romania: 65 Serbia: 28 I've not seen this association between national life expectancy and national mortality from COVID-19 mentioned before, and would suggest that it's a point to keep more of an eye on if any reliable source elaborates on these factors further.

    Looting in Minneapolis

    The first or second night of the riots I saw a video of one rioter being hauled onto a bus by two policemen. I don't know where it was. Since he was being walked backwards he was facing the camera. He was wearing a bandana with the words "I can't breathe" professionally screen printed on it. Products like that don't get manufactured and distributed overnight.

    Lord, one day at a time is all I ask

    Lord, one day at a time is all I ask When I was a young monk, one of the seniors told me that it takes time to get into monastic life. He mentioned how it was around 10 years before he even began to get into the interior grove of his vocation. Being only 23 at the time, I thought what he said absurd. Yet here I am almost 50 years later, and I still have not quite got it. I bump into things, fumble along, fail, get up, and in spite of my bumbling, I sense grace at work, and healing going on, and change that seems to happen overtime on its own. It is grace, mercy, and God's compassion. I sense this in those who come here. I am often humbled by their faith, courage, and a deep trust in God's love and mercy. Yet, they also find it slow going, one day at a time, prayer, and seeking to grow in love. Humility is needed because self-knowledge makes the soul aware of its wounds, failures, and need of deep inner healing. Our sins, addictions, and compulsion I believe flow from deep wounds that can only be healed by trusting in God's secret work in our souls. It is not about self-pity, or despair, or neurotic guilt, but about the truth that will set us free. All we need do is to 'show up'. Get up, and yes, trust, trust, trust. -Br.MD

    Magnetic field

    I don't know if we should be worried ..... But I do know that the earth's crust is a record of many past magnetic field reversals. I believe there is weakening in between reversals ?
  15. Last weekend, a storm struck Utah’s Great Salt Lake with winds exceeding 50 miles per hour, exposing the rusted wreckage of what may be a century-old boat, reports Spencer Burt for local broadcast station Fox 13. Great Salt Lake State Park posted a photo of the wreck on its social media pages, stating that the steel boat—now visible along the body of water’s south shore—likely dates to the turn of the 20th century. The park also noted that people have boated on the lake since the mid-1880s. Park manager Dave Shearer tells Nate Carlisle of the Salt Lake Tribune that the storm’s strong winds drove waves to the south of the lake’s shores, washing away sands that had previously covered the wreckage. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/storm-great-salt-lake-uncovers-wreck-century-old-boat-180974996/ Video: https://www.fox13now.com/news/local-news/history-behind-100-year-old-shipwreck-found-after-recent-wind-storm

    The science behind ghost sightings...

    It kinda does though. Does evolution 'refute' the idea of creationism, is that okay to say in your view? If you agree, then keep in mind all that science didn't do in order to refute creationism. Science hasn't personally verified that there is no species on earth that didn't evolve from an earlier form and wasn't just poofed into existence by a god, that is still a possibility. Yet we still say creationism is refuted because we have an alternative explanation for how species emerge, there's a ton of evidence for it, and every species we look at fits this model. Similarly, almost every afterlife conception I've heard of includes aspects of our brains continuing on, our personalities or at the very least our memory. Yet we have as much evidence for what happens to these mental functions when the brain is deprived of oxygen or people die as we have for evolution. For some people with severe enough Alzheimer's or a brain injury for instance, the afterlife theory is usually that after death that person's memory is essentially magically restored and that you possess those in heaven or wherever, unless things like catatonia and comas carry over to the afterlife. Sure, maybe something-something our brain is just a receiver for an incorporeal soul that is connected to it magically, etc. And maybe evolution is responsible for the diversity of life except for the platypus, which was specially created by Zeus (when he was drunk obviously...). We don't prevent the latter possibility prevent us from non-shamefully using the word 'refute' with creationism so I'm not sure where you think this analogy doesn't apply.

      Thank you, I am a Buddhist, and I have been practicing for almost 7 years now. Here in Korea there are some beautiful ancient Temples, and my wife and I have a very special temple we go to if not weekly Monthly. I have a senior Monk that is 91 years old that has been acting as my teacher, I am the first American he has every attempted to teach.:yes: It has been a very awarding exchange between us, he is a great teacher and I try to be the best student possible.:)

      So thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it, and never forget to rub your Buddhas belly and make a wish, you never know it may come true.:D

      I love old Temples, and I have a lot of respect for Buddhists!

      I once thought I was a Buddhist because the philosophy makes a lot of sense. ;)

    I Like this part of the lyrics. from what i know this song is about nationalism how each country sees nationalism as such a good thing, yet it is the cause of majority of wars. 

    "Head to head chest to chest which country is the very best? and in the land of rape and honey you pray..." 

     

     

     

  22. A new study reveals the Chicxulub impact crater may have harbored a vast and long-lived hydrothermal system after the catastrophic impact event linked to the extinction of dinosaurs 66 million years ago. The Chicxulub impact crater, roughly 180 kilometers in diameter, is the best preserved large impact structure on Earth and a target for exploration of several impact-related phenomena. https://phys.org/news/2020-05-steaming-cauldron-dinosaurs-demise.html https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/22/eaaz3053 Related: https://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/forum/topic/337237-yucatan-asteroid-hit-at-deadliest-angle/?
