excuse me while i take this expression out of context, for purposes of a rant. ;)
there are not enough natural resources for
what utter bollocks. look up. we have the resources. if only we'd stop denying ourselves it. if only we would stop manufacturing scarcity to maintain domination. we're held back. the manufactured scarcity is a product of capitalism. so your apparent reason to want capitalism to die (because there's not enough resources), is a fiction created by capitalism, for capitalism, that disapears with capitalism.

aaaaaaabundant.

and not just the abundance up in space.

even all the earth-bound manufactured scarcities and squanderances to artificially accelerate consumer churn for short-term monetary profit gains.

oh there's enough resources alright.

capitalism's not gonna maintain those resources though. that would be an externality. no profit in externalities. tragedy of the commons compounded. resource sustainability squandered in a race to extract before the other extractor.

Solar Orbiter is a space mission of international collaboration between ESA and NASA. Its mission is to perform unprecedented close-up observations of the Sun and from high-latitudes, providing the first images of the uncharted polar regions of the Sun, and investigating the Sun-Earth connection. It is scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA in February 2020.

Solar Orbiter Earth flyby






Image:

Artist's impression of Solar Orbiter making a flyby at Earth.

Solar Orbiter will make one gravity assist flyby of Earth and numerous flybys of Venus over the course of its mission to adjust its orbit, bringing it closer to the Sun and also out of the plane of the Solar System to observe the Sun from progressively higher inclinations. This will result in the spacecraft being able to take the first ever images of the Sun’s polar regions, crucial for understanding how the Sun ‘works’.

La conquête, le colonialisme, le capitalisme sont toutes des formes collectives d'interaction entre un groupe de personnes et un autre. De telles formes d'interaction de groupe deviennent disponibles en raison de l'organisation et des actions collectives de nombreuses personnes différentes ayant des intérêts différents, quand elles commencent à agir pour un objectif commun (famille, tribu, classe, etc.)
Un langage commun n'est pas suffisant pour le succès de ces formes collectives d'activité; de telles formes de domination de certaines personnes sur d'autres se heurtent à une contre-réaction naturelle. Une philosophie ou une idéologie sociale commune est nécessaire pour justifier les avantages de certains groupes par rapport à d'autres. Dans la plupart des pays civilisés du monde, la philosophie sociale du darwinisme a déjà été inculquée depuis plusieurs générations, en reprenant le standard de la Prusse comme standard éducatif.

Mauro Ferrari joins organisation at a tricky time and says his focus is on identifying ‘breakthrough people’

He had been driven to find a cure for the cancer that had killed his wife at the age of 32, leaving him alone with three traumatised children. “I feel comfortable talking about this now – I didn’t for years,” he says. “Everyone has got a wound that pushes them to do better.”

One subtle anonymous edit, and now academic fundamentalists may refer to the wikipedia to hide that they do not use the scientific method during their "social study". This allows them to more successfully conduct their social propaganda on behalf of science. Before world wars, what is now called "social sciences" was called "liberal arts".

A 271.8 nm deep-ultraviolet laser diode for room temperature operation - IOPscience

a deep-ultraviolet semiconductor laser diode that operates under current injection at room temperature and at a very short wavelength. The laser structure was grown on the (0001) face of a single-crystal aluminum nitride substrate. The measured lasing wavelength was 271.8 nm with a pulsed duration of 50 ns and a repetition frequency of 2 kHz. A polarization-induced doping cladding layer was employed to achieve hole conductivity and injection without intentional impurity doping. Even with this undoped layer, we were still able to achieve a low operation voltage of 13.8 V at a lasing threshold current of 0.4 A.

The Global Carbon Project (GCP) is an organisation that seeks to quantify global greenhouse gas emissions and their causes. [1]Established in 2001, its projects include global budgets for three dominant greenhouse gases — carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide — and complementary efforts in urban, regional, cumulative, and negative emissions.

There’s Nothing Wrong With Racism (Except the Name)


And how I became a political dissident…

by Professor Geoffrey Sampson

‘RACISM’ IS certainly a horrible word. Words ending in -ism are normally formed from adjective roots: nationalism, specialism, communism. The correct word is ‘racialism,’ and this was the usual term until the shorter word came in quite recently, at a time when standards of education had decayed sufficiently for people to have lost touch with the patterns of English vocabulary.

But objecting to ‘racism’ as an emotion, rather than objecting to the word, is just silly. It is as silly as objecting to people’s sexual feelings, and for similar reasons.

In Victorian times, it is often said that piano legs used to be draped, for fear that the sight of naked legs, even wooden ones, might inflame men’s lusts. In time to come, the curr... Show more...
