Trump transition wants names of Energy Department staff who worked on climateLeisureGuy

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 19:12:08 +0000

I wonder what their plans are. The Trump administration so far seems hell-bent on accelerating climate change in their desire to prove that climate scientists don’t know nearly so much about climate as do right-wing politicians and oil company executives, who feel that destruction of our habitat is fine if there’s money to be made […](image)

Rae Ellen Bichell reports at NPR: In 2015, Lida Xing was visiting a market in northern Myanmar when a salesman brought out a piece of amber about the size of a pink rubber eraser. Inside, he could see a couple of ancient ants and a fuzzy brown tuft that the salesman said was a plant. […](image)

Prediction: Terrorism in the Middle East Will Decline By Half Between 2020 and 2040LeisureGuyblog_middle_east_leaded_gasoline_phaseout_0

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 18:55:38 +0000

Why? Kevin Drum explains at Mother Jones: I’m going to make an obvious point about this, but I want to make it carefully. Ever since I wrote my piece about the link between violent crime and leaded gasoline, I’ve gotten periodic questions about whether lead might be responsible for other things. The most common answer […](image)

H.L. Thäter, Van Yulay, and the Rockwell R4LeisureGuySOTD 2016-12-09

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 17:22:44 +0000

I have to day that the Van Yulay soaps are remarkably good. I do add a little water as I load the brush, but the resulting lather is remarkable: dense, creamy, slick, and fragrance—and I particularly like the fragrance of After Dark, whose ingredients are: Stearic Acid, Aloe Vera, Coconut Fatty Acid, Castor, Glycerin, Potassium […](image)

A series of cabbage and meat low-carb recipes from DietDoctor.comLeisureGuy

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 01:55:38 +0000

Blue Cheese Cabbage Stir-Fry. A few observations: Just use 1 head of cabbage. It will be 1.5-2 lbs, and it doesn’t make much difference how much there is. I used shallots. The ground beef was available onl in 1-lb packages (and 1.3 lbs is odd measure), so I bought a packaage of sweet Italian sausage […](image)

New life for the gasoline engine: Get rid of the camshaftLeisureGuy

From a long list of gadgets in Popular Science; Koenigsegg FreeValve: New Life For The Gas Engine For more than a century, the internal combustion engine has relied on the ungainly camshaft. This spinning rod with variable lobes sits atop the engine, where it opens and closes intake and exhaust valves during the combustion cycle. […](image)

On a Hunt for a Ghost of a ParticleLeisureGuy

Maggie McKee interviews Janet Conrad at Quanta: Even for a particle physicist, Janet Conrad thinks small. Early in her career, when her peers were fanning out in search of the top quark, now known to be the heaviest elementary particle, she broke ranks to seek out the neutrino, the lightest. In part, she did this […](image)

The other day The Wife commented that she really liked the fragrance I was wearing—Creed’s Green Irish Tweed, as it happened—and I am as alert as the next guy to things that please the Significant Other. So I expect you might be seeing Creed a little more often. Certainly it will be no hardship for […](image)

I blogged earlier about a samle pack of the three  St. George gins: Terroir Gin Botanivore Gin Dry Rye Gin I have tasted them all, and they are all great, but very different. Terroir Gin: Has somehow the taste of a thick consistency, and the wood notes are noticeable. I could see using a snifter […](image)

Do read this extremely well presented ProPublica report that exemplifies how the short-term thinking that’s involved in “looting” is going to have pretty horrible long-term consequences for a lot of people.Filed under: Business, Daily life, Environment, Global warming, Government, Science(image)

How crony can capitalism be? Pickers to the EPA.LeisureGuy

Valerie Volcovici and Timothy Gardner write at Reuters: Donald Trump will pick an ardent opponent of President Barack Obama’s measures to curb climate change as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, a Trump transition team source said on Wednesday, a choice that enraged green activists and cheered the oil industry.

The North Pole Is In Big Trouble. So Is the South Pole.LeisureGuy

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 19:19:38 +0000

Kevin Drum has some excellent charts in a brief post showing the continued progress of global warming. It’s puzzling how responsible people can still deny global warming, but then Pizzagate is puzzling as well. Do take a look. From the post: . . . it shows the historical data clearly: El Niño years (in red) […](image)

This column from a year ago warned of the tsunami of disinformation on the internetLeisureGuy

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 19:07:06 +0000

Caitlin Dewey wrote a column in the Washington Post a year ago (December 19, 2015). It’s worth reading in the light of Pizzagate: There is nothing — NOTHING — too crazy for the Internet hoax beat. Pregnancy by flu shot? Six days of total darkness? In the past 82 weeks, I’m prettyyyy sure I’ve seen […](image)

A look at income inequality in the US and FranceLeisureGuy

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 18:09:29 +0000

Kevin Drum has two very interesting charts that are well worth a look. It seems as though Congress is betraying its public trust and the American people. Also note the emergence of crony capitalism in the US.Filed under: Business, Congress, Daily life, GOP, Government(image)

Pam Martens and Russ Martens have done some digging into PropOrNot and report in Wall Street on Parade: A shadowy group called PropOrNot (shorthand for Propaganda Or Not) that has gone to a great deal of trouble to keep its funders and principals secret, is promulgating a blacklist of 200 alternative media websites that it […](image)

QED Special 218 with Fine Classic, and the Parker VariantLeisureGuySOTD 2016-12-07

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 17:55:20 +0000

The Fine Classic quickly made a terrific lather from QED’s Special 218. The puck is dark, possibly because of pine tar. I’m not sure that’s an ingredient, but the soap does have an excellent pine fragrance. The Parker Variant did a very fine job. Soon I’ll have to do a side by side shave using […](image)

A clear-sighted look at the “Replace” part of “Repeal and Replace (in same session)”, based on industry feedbackLeisureGuy

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 02:04:35 +0000

Kevin Drum has a very solid post here. Read the whole thing. The conclusion: . . .Here’s the case for laughing: the insurance industry says it’s OK with repealing Obamacare, but we should maintain the pre-existing conditions ban, the individual mandate, the subsidies for low-income families, and the Medicaid expansion. Needless to say, that is […](image)
