Are they as mean as they are on the Internet

The argument assumes that conscience or the desire forchildren (no matter which) is hereditary-but hereditary only inthe most general formal sense. The result will be the samewhether the attitude is transmitted through germ cells, orexosomatically, to use A. J. Lotka's term. (If one denies thelatter possibility as well as the former, then what's the pointof education?) The argument has here been stated in the contextof the population problem, but it applies equally well to anyinstance in which society appeals to an individual exploiting acommons to restrain himself for the general good -- by means ofhis conscience. To make such an appeal is to set up a selectivesystem that works toward the elimination of conscience from therace.

During many interviews I've been asked this question: How are people like in real life to you

Marie Hassenpflug (1788-1856) provided them with the second variant (the concluding episode, introduced with the sentence "They also tell how Little Red Cap was taking some baked things to her grandmother another time...."

Some low recallers seem to be less good at tasks involving visual imagination, such as when they have to look at a picture of a building made of blocks and then construct one out of blocks that are sitting in front of them. There may be other "cognitive skills" relating to the ability to imagine things that are important, too, but the research is not yet completely convincing on this point.

There are many such lists, but we don't trust them. This is not to say that dreams don't have symbolic meaning; rather, everyone has their own set of symbols. We cannot endorse any claims by those who think they can analyze a single dream (or dreamer) on the basis of the objects contained therein. For an excellent article that traces the origins of dubious American "dream code" books back to the second century A.D. in Italy and Greece, see the following reference:

The Tragedy of the Commons, by Garrett Hardin (1968)

Wildfires are in the news almost every late summer and fall. The National Interagency Fire Center has recorded the number of fires and acreage affected since 1985. This data show the number of fires trending down slightly, though the acreage burned had increased before leveling off over the last 20 years. The NWS tracks the number of days where conditions are conducive to wildfires when they issue red-flag warnings. It is little changed. 2017 was an active fire year in the U.S. but my no means a record. The U.S. had 64,610 fires, the 7th most since in 11 years and the most since 2012. The 9,574, 533 acres burned was the 4th most in 11 years and most since 2015. The fires burned in the Northwest including Montana with a very dry summer then the action shifted south seasonally with the seasonal start of the wind events like Diablo in northern California and Santa Ana to the south. Fires spread to northern California in October with an episode of the dry Diablo wind that blows from the east and then in December as strong and persistent Santa Ana winds and dry air triggered a round of large fires in Ventura County. According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection the 2017 California wildfire season was the most destructive one on record with a total of 8,987 fires that burned 1,241,158 acres. It included five of the 20 most destructive wildland-urban interface fires in the state’s history. When it comes to considering the number of deaths and structures destroyed, the seven-fold increase in population in California from 1930 to 2017 must be noted. Not only does this increase in population mean more people and home structures in the path of fires, but it also means more fires. Lightning and campfires caused most historic fires; today most are the result of power lines igniting trees. The power lines have increased proportionately with the population, so it can be reasoned that most of the damage from wild fires in California is a result of increased population not Global Warming. The increased danger is also greatly aggravated by poor government forest management choices.

Yes, I know these measurements. These are two series of tide heights, that is, water levels at low tide and high tide. We checked these data with the result that they are of very poor quality. One series has been influenced by the fact that port facilities were built on loose sediment soil near the measuring station, which could have changed tidal heights. For the other series, the measuring station was even moved. The researchers who rely on such data are office workers. They are not specialized in coastal dynamics processes and sea level changes. Many of them have no idea of ​​the real conditions.
