In modern hippie dippie wellness culture, that may not be the response people are seeking, they may want validation of essential oils or an app, but one thing most people don't realize is that stress is not about fads or even other people. We manage stress, we only think it manages us.
That's a free market success story, but then there were concerns about their marketing, specifically toward "nicotine naïve" - never smoked cigarettes - young people. I never bought into claims they were marketing to kids as strategy, though in a world of individuals some people employed there obviously said and did some dumb things.
But as their market share has plummeted due to controversy, nearly cut in half this year, they have perhaps demonstrated that their marketing efforts were corrupt all along.
Imagine how much higher prices would be if food suffered the yield losses that occur without modern pesticides. This year I am thankful for my health and my family but also science. Outside my house are signs thanking healthcare workers, delivery people, and farmers - and if they made one for science, including vaccines and pesticides, I'd own it.
During the pandemic, 68 percent of Millennials took up a new hobby and nearly as many grew their houseplant collection.
Perhaps that's become part of the new cultural dynamic. 57 said having a houseplant supported their mental health while 81 percent say houseplants are a reasonable substitute if they are far from nature.
And marriage is back. The number of singles who want a partner desiring marriage jumped from 58 percent two years ago to 76 percent this year, with men and younger adults leading in the change. Now, 42 percent of men are ready to find a long-term romantic relationship while women are just at 29 percent.
Not this year, men are leading the charge in heart's desire.
Fact Check: IPCC's Transformative Change Maximises GOOD QUALITY OF LIFE With GROWTH In Everything We Value, Not COLLAPSE
There is nothing even remotely resembling collapse of civilization in the IPBES or IPCC reports. So why do so many people say that’s what they are about?
I think it may be at least partly a misunderstanding of what the IPCC mean by “transformative change”, a misunderstanding which sadly is promoted in many articles in the mainstream media. If anyone says this, they haven't read the reports themselves, or at least not carefully.
The IPCC’s “transformative change” is not a collapse. Nor is it austerity. It’s positive, it’s growth in everything we value.
For East Coast observers, the partial eclipse begins a little after 2 a.m. Friday and reaches its maximum at 4 in the morning. For observers on the West Coast, it begins just after 11 p.m. Thursday and reaches a maximum at 1 a.m. Friday.
Some cat owners, and probably most dog owners, might argue that cats engage in the latter and when it seems like the former it is just a lucky meeting of personalities. A new study in Animal Cognition finds they 'read the room' better than expected.
Cats were presented with a solvable task (an easily accessible treat in a container with a loose lid) and an unsolvable task (a treat in a closed container) in the presence of either an attentive or inattentive caregiver.
How warm has it gotten compared to other warming bursts since the last ice age ended? A lot. Maps of global temperature changes for every 200-year interval going back 24,000 years finds that the magnitude and rate warming over the last 150 years far surpasses the magnitude and rate of changes over the rest of the period - including when we were leaving an ice age.
The Mary Rose sank during a naval battle with France in 1543 and was excavated in 1982, along with 19,000 objects from the Tudor period. There remains one thing the 510-year-old English warship can't defeat; nature.
The poorly worded Delaney Clause specified that any trace of an artificial chemical that had been linked to cancer - even if it was just epidemiological correlation or in a mouse and regardless of dose - had to be pulled from shelves. It was bizarre because the actual chemical did not matter, a natural version of the same chemical at 100X the dose was considered okay, it only mattered that it was artificial.(1)
Farmers Can Get Infrastructure Funds From The Government Now Also - But You Have To Apply By Nov. 22
About 0.5% is allocated toward the groups who kept America from descending into anarchy over the last two years - government regulated food producers, processors and growers - can get new funding if they apply by November 22nd. Sorry, organic farmers, you have exempted yourself from government oversight so you may have a more difficult time.
Many physics students would tell you immediately off the bat what Newton's Third Law of Motion states.
Then you begin to sell special magic rock labels touting that government halo, and soon groups line up to sell your magic rock labels to magic rock manufacturers for a fee. Along the way you redefine certain periods when you are awake as actually being asleep so you can include even more magic rocks.
They kept him in jail for 30 days while they told the WHO to tell the world that there was nothing to fear. American journalists and social media dutifully repeated it and even said the US government was racist for wanting to cut flights from China in early 2020. Li was long dead by then. Soon, millions followed while the communist dictatorship scrubbed 15,000 coronaviruses in databases from its Wuhan labs and closed the wet market where they assured WHO the disease could not have originated.
