    I’m workin a bunch of shifts so that I can be off for my ‘birthday season’ . The season consists of much golf, steaks, good booze, a yearly very nice cigar, among other things…enjoy this open, I’m gonna try to get some sleep…the thunderstorms approach.

     

    Here is a fun lecture

     

    Published on May 15, 2017

    Lecturer: Ariel Cohen

    Cohen discusses the main ingredients for organized severe thunderstorms, including moisture, rising air, instability, and vertical wind shear.

    Here is a link to the SPC website for more videos on severe thunderstorm ingredients:

    I’ve set up a team to fold some proteins for medical research. This program has been around for some time and runs in the background of your computer. Its called Folding @ Home and its run by the geniuses at Stanford. In short, it processes proteins by distributive computing which spreads the work around onto as many CPUs that are signed up. Right now i have it running on 2 computers, a lap top, and the old tablet. You don’t notice it is there as it sets itself at lower priority than the programs that you are using (this is also adjustable). This was running under my nic for a few years and I had forgotten that i was running it…so, i thought it best to start over and send out some invites.

    As Background:

    What is protein folding and how is it related to disease?

    Proteins are necklaces of amino acids, long chain molecules. They are the basis of how biology gets things done. As enzymes, they are the driving force behind all of the biochemical reactions that make biology work. As structural elements, they are the main constituent of our bones, muscles, hair, skin and blood vessels. As antibodies, they recognize invading elements and allow the immune system to get rid of the unwanted invaders. For these reasons, scientists have sequenced the human genome – the blueprint for all of the proteins in biology – but how can we understand what these proteins do and how they work?

    However, only knowing this sequence tells us little about what the protein does and how it does it. In order to carry out their function (e.g. as enzymes or antibodies), they must take on a particular shape, also known as a “fold.” Thus, proteins are truly amazing machines: before they do their work, they assemble themselves! This self-assembly is called “folding.”

    So, if you are interested you can download the program or app here. Then, you can sign up when you start folding with team name: Blogmocracy and team number: 233229. Then shoot the blog an email at OUR NEW Email ADDY (i figured out how to update the main page!!!) and I will send you the passkey that ensures proper credit and coordination (now the emails go to my phone!). You can even pick the disease type to work on if you like.

    We don’t get paid for this, we might not even make a dent, but, we can try. It costs about .35 cents a day to leave a computer running with the monitor off (same as a standard light-bulb). So, if you have some left over computing power that you want to put to good work, consider this program.

    Yeah, But I did.

    So, my senator? who is smarter?

    The other day Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania explained why Republicans are having such trouble with health care. Speaking at a town hall during the July 4 recess, Toomey said, “I didn’t expect Donald Trump to win. I think most of my colleagues didn’t. So we didn’t expect to be in this situation.”

    I have sent an email asking Senator Toomey why I should vote for him given this total lack of situational awareness. I warned him, a ‘form’ email WILL result in a vote against him.

    …..we will see…..

     

    Why Did Trump Say ‘NO’ to Paris?

    Why Did Trump Say ‘NO’ to Paris? Because of this:

    The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever–despite current claims of record setting warming.

    Finally, since GAST data set validity is a necessary condition for EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding, it too is invalidated by these
    research findings.

    NOT VALID! These are words that research loathe to hear. President Trump was truly and 100% correct to leave the Paris Agreement right there in Europe. Have fun with that! It’s simple, once the Soviet Union collapsed, the socialists around the world glommed on to global warming and globalism as their new vehicle to advance the Socialist Revolution.

    President Trump was right, again.

    here is how Paris will play out:

    all of these countires are on their own train, by agreeing to Paris, they are all headed for the same intersection where the resultant catastrophic crash will destroy capitalism in the world. and that is the point of this. the socialists are now neo-cons/globalists/environmentalists. they see themsleves as the elite who will rule over the destroyed economies. you cant have a revolution if there is a solid middle class in place, hence the need to destroy that class as seen by kristol and the NRO staff and the nevertrumpers.

    well, conductor trump stopped our train and had everyone disembark the kamikaze special. now, this is the biggest train by far and ALL of the other trains were relying on the big train to bring its cargo to the impact point; the end result of Paris is income distribution from America to everyone else. the rest of the world is already nearly socialist but the revolution cant happen if America’s middle class is still strong.

    now that the big train is stopped all of the other conductors will do exactly the same thing because without America in this deal the redistribution of wealth cannot occur. it will be every country for themselves as soon as the next country bails. this is like watching a great big game of chicken.

    America is out, one more country bails and the game is over. for now
