Re: YAW Journal (Vol. 3: Moving On)

Well to put it summarize. I can't find a job worth a damn in Europe in my field or makes use of my skillset. And honestly I want to move on with my life. So it is time to leave Estonia and head back home where I can actually make money to actually FIRE.

Re: Are humans evolving faster or slower?

Same rate, or a little bit slower as the environment we live is much more pleasant than 10k BC, at the beginning on the neolithic era, let alone when humanity still lived in the cradle.

Re: Geopolitics in East Africa

Has Ethiopia started building any infrastructure for solar panels, via international grants or the like? It would seem useful, especially with climate change affecting water levels, therefore in this case energy production.

Re: Geopolitics in East Africa

@Solvent: What do you think about possibility of the East African Federation ? It is not part of the Horn of Africa region but still East Africa. It seems interesting concept, however it is highly doubted by some online commenters. I have not been able to talk to many people from the region here in ...

@7Wannabe5:
Bearberries, I have not tried so I will trust you on that.

And I wish lived somewhere in more desert like environment so I can test it out the mineral theory. And also will look in Steve Solomon's work to see what his theories are.

So taking a break from my thesis, I decided to look at potential wild edibles of Arctic as @jacob mentioned in another thread that do not grow in the long days and darkness of the North, which while I concede that there are not any staple crops within the circumpolar region being grown on mass, ther...

I agreed with you everything you said so take that in mind:

If we cannot reach or even observe those places, should we even taken it into consideration for our part of the universe of whether or not we are alone?

Gene Drives are a a step way too far. Individual case-by-case analysis is reasonable, especially in genetic diseases such as malaria, but entire populations?
