The big day for Apollo 11 – landing on the lunar surface.

NOTE: I don’t think the top photo is Apollo 11 – it’s in color.

    “Trump election in 2016 linked to increase in preterm births among US Latinas”
    by Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health – Posted July 19, 2019

    Researchers know that stress in pregnant women can bring an elevated risk of preterm birth. Prior studies also suggest that anti-immigrant policies or actions can stress immigrant women and/or make them less likely to seek prenatal care. Moreover, although most Latinas living in the U.S. are citizens or otherwise documented immigrants and would not be directly threatened by tighter policies for undocumented immigrants, they are very likely to have close friends or family members who would be threatened by such policies.

      Good day to you, Nyet! Breakfast fare is comfort food! Gets us through the busy early hours and sails us into our day…

      …of which mine is in the exotic locale of Mamoudzou, Mayotte, a French-owned territory in the Indian Ocean, off East Africa…(Mamoudzou is located on Grande-Terre–or Mahoré–the main island of Mayotte’s two islands…don’t ask me the name of the other since I spent ten minutes trying to find out and got waylaid by all the other interesting articles and never found out what I wanted)…

      …but later I sailed on to see if I could get into Diego Garcia…

      …the U.S. military base which is so strategically placed and which the U.N. wants us to abandon so they can give it back to whatever people are claiming it (we rent it from the U.K. but several other countries want it)…complicated…”UN ruling raises questions about future of US mission in Diego Garcia” – https://www.stripes.com/news/un-ruling-raises-questions-about-future-of-us-mission-in-diego-garcia-1.571709 – Published: March 7, 2019.

      Changed my mind once again and kept on sailing…

      Merci/Thanks/Muchos Gracias!

    Nutrition Science Is Broken. This New Egg Study Shows Why.

    So which is it? Is the egg good or bad? And, while we are on the subject, when so much of what we are told about diet, health, and weight loss is inconsistent and contradictory, can we believe any of it?

    Quite frankly, probably not. Nutrition research tends to be unreliable because nearly all of it is based on observational studies, which are imprecise, have no controls, and don’t follow an experimental method. As nutrition-research critics Edward Archer and Carl Lavie have put it, “’Nutrition’ is now a degenerating research paradigm in which scientifically illiterate methods, meaningless data, and consensus-driven censorship dominate the empirical landscape.”

      Stella, the quote at the end of this blurb, from Archer and Lavie, is a comment applicable today to Far More than just Nutritional publications and pronouncements.
      The first thing that popped into my head was, This is the dominant “methodology” utilized by the climate fanatics…then again, the decades long charade surrounding evolution is also a perfect example of this non-ethical approach to Science…I have long thought Biology morphed into Philosophy decades ago.
      With a little imagination, this approach to journalism is also evident.

      Many thanks for this link. The pollution of Science in our society is rampant; I’m happy to be shown a site which gathers these travesties.

      And such it will remain as long as the food nazis stay in charge. Their agendas are many and may or may not include the individual’s good in the process. Note how the ‘anti-meat’ crew has, generally without any real basis, put their research forward that meat is bad for the individual and the environment and people are not by nature meat eaters.

      I find bit interesting how ‘nutritional research’ is trying to push a vegan diet for cats and dogs saying how they ‘benefit’ from a meat-free diet. Maybe there’s a way to recycle some of these nutritionists as pet food – soylent weenies, perhaps.

      “I intend to enjoy my eggs …” How right you are, Stella!

      Nutrition…yes, OK, it’s important. But I love a really good omelette full of goodies like bacon, chorizo, bell peppers of all three colors, and onions…

      …so I’m not stopping, maybe just slim down to once or twice a week…that should do it, right?

      And raw broccoli and cabbage and Romaine lettuce which should sorta balance everything out.

        I belive in Julia Child’s philosophy: everything in moderation. She used butter, cream, ate meat and all the “bad stuff”, was overweight, and lived to be 92. Her last meal was French onion soup.

          My friend used only Ina Garten recipes, which is all made from scratch, I believe, and is full of eggs and cream, etc. At the end of the month she had to do the blood test for her next Dr appt. and figured her cholesterol would be sky high. But, it turned out her cholesterol was much lower………..however, she had gained 10 lbs. LOL But, her skin and hair looked healthier.

    Interesting take on man-caused global warming. From Facebook.

    Kevin Stone. I ran some numbers based on hard data as to the total energy input to Earth from the sun versus that from human sources. Humans use about 15 trillion watts of energy from all sources annually. What that means is that we convert various forms of potential energy or capture forms of kinetic energy (wind, hydro, solar) and convert it to something usable. Meanwhile, the sun provides about 1360W/m2 average on the illuminated hemisphere of the Earth in total flux. That means that the sun bombards the Earth with as much energy in just over an hour as humanity harnesses and uses in a year. Our energy output compared to the sun’s here on Earth is 0.0125%.

    To convert that number to relative thermal energy, we know that the surface mean temperature stands at about 58F. Converting that to Kelvin (degrees Celsius above absolute zero – the state at which there is theoretically zero energy), we see that the surface mean on that scale is 288K. Multiplying that by the relative percentage of anthropogenic energy produced and used, we find that the absolute maximum temperature change that man can be responsible for is 0.036 degrees Kelvin or Celsius, or about 0.065 Fahrenheit. And that change would only be possible if we either completely eliminated all human-produced energy right down to campfires and water wheels or else doubled our current production and usage.

    So when you see studies claiming that we have raised or will raise the surface mean temperature by some tenths of a degree, understand that the people making these claims either know or absolutely should know that such a thing is entirely impossible. To raise the Earth’s temperature even by a single tenth of a degree would require increasing current usage, with most or all of that usage being somehow converted directly into thermal energy (which doesn’t remotely happen) by about 150%. Comparing that to natural variations, it’s a meaningless number, given that, for example, the Little Ice Age dropped global surface mean by about 1.5 degrees C or 3.6 degrees F. To raise the temperature by that amount, we would have to increase anthropogenic warming by 2250%.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
