  • "Tasmanian devils are affected by two independent transmissible cancers known as devil facial tumour 1 (DFT1) and devil facial tumour 2 (DFT2). Both cancers are spread by biting and cause the appearance of tumours on the face or inside the mouth of affected Tasmanian devils. The tumours often become very large and usually cause death of affected animals. DFT1 has spread widely around Tasmania and has caused declines in the Tasmanian devil population; DFT2, on the other hand, appears to be confined to a peninsula in south-east Tasmania. As a result of the impact of DFT1, Tasmanian devils are now considered endangered."

The island resulted from the rifting of Madagascar away from Africa as well as "hotspot" mantle plume activity, and is also impacted by seismicity and deformation associated with the East African Rif⛄t. However, because Mayotte is a part of France its geology is significantly more researched than that of other islands in the chain."

First of all, almost all collection is done in the dry season when the fish are easy to get - but this is also the season of less food available, so the gut content of the fish may well be more of "it's all they had" than "this is what I'd choose to eat" choices."

  • Western horsemen's dusters figured little in Western films until Sergio Leone re-introduced them in his movies The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966) and Once Upon a Time in the West (1968). The latter played for many months in Paris and was in part credited with a revival of the duster in men's fashions in that city. Similarly, in the film genre of heroic bloodshed, primarily through Chow Yun Fat and John Woo, the hero is often seen wearing a duster. That is also true of the fictional anti-hero Omar Little, who wears dusters both as outerwear and as a silk sleepwear coverup in the HBO series, The Wire.

    Dusters gained renewed popularity in the late 20th century and are now a standard item of Western wear. The Tenth Doctor played by David Tennant wore a cinnamon brown duster coat on Doctor Who. Van Pelt, the main enemy on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle wore a dark brown duster coat. Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher's Dresden Files wears a duster, as well as other cowboy-like attire.

    In modern times,🤡 leatheꦆr dusters are worn by motorcyclists to prevent road rash.

I did it for many years, and then younger people came to do it and I started to do new things. It was a long, very lucrative episode of my life. But it's complicated to do that. Now it's all changed, actually. Now in order to get a rewrite job, you have to submit your notes for your ideas on how to fix the script. So they can get all the notes from all the different writers, keep the notes and not hire you. That's free work and that's what I always call life-wasting events."--Carrie Fisher

  • In her own life and work, due to the demonisation of activists’ sectors which have weaponised intersectionality theory, Smiley has been constructed as yet another savage, subhuman, and disposable Indigenous woman. In the attempts to assassinate the character of an up-and-coming scholar who has dedicated her life to ending male violence, and whose sole wrongdoing was veering from the patriarchal and colonial scripts assigned to her, the misogynist trope of the aggressive woman of colour becomes reified by those who claim to promote anticolonial and antiracist politics. Who benefits from putting an outspoken Indigenous feminist “back in her place” and reinforcing colonial stereotypes? --Cherry Smiley

  • Constructed as “squaws,” Indigenous women and girls are seen as savage, subhuman and disposable. They are depicted as women and girls who always want sex and are sexually available to men at all times. Despite their over-representation in street prostitution, Indigenous women occupy marginal positions in sexual exploitation discourse. This research posits the sexual exploitation of Indigenous women and girls as a site to understanding expressions of colonial male violence and their impacts on Indigenous women and girls.--Cherry Smiley

  • It is clear from global trends that commercial surrogacy targets the poorest women to exploit. Since the economic depression of 2008 criminal gangs have turned to women as a resource in Greece. In September 2019 ‘news broke of the dismantling of an organised crime group involved in illegal adoptions, egg-selling and commercial surrogacy in Thessaloniki, Greece. An eight-month-long secret investigation by Greek law enforcement authorities, supported by Interpol, led to the arrest of 22 people suspected of engaging in a criminal network of assisted reproduction’.

    December 26, 2021

  • As Lauren Hamstead has outlined the ‘language that has developed to describe surrogacy is highly prejudicial, it is deployed to hide some relationships within the transaction and emphasise others. ‘Surrogate mother’ would highlight the maternal relationship and so is often shortened to ‘surrogate’, alternatively ‘gestational carrier’, ‘carrier’ or ‘host’ are used. This has the effect of dehumanising the woman who is pregnant and casting her as an incubator’.

    This opening is called a blastopore, and it is the first of our proto-organs to begin forming.

  • DarkSide is a relative newcomer to the ransomware scene, what Ms. Neuberger called “a criminal actor” that hires out its services to the highest bidder, then shares “the proceeds with ransomware developers.” It is essentially a business model in which some of the ill-gotten gains are poured into research and development on more effective forms of ransomware.

    October 24, 2021

  • But this case was different: a criminal actor who, in trying to extort money from a company, ended up bringing down the system. One senior Biden administration official called it “the ultimate blended threat” because it was a criminal act, the kind the United States would normally respond to with arrests or indictments, that resulted in a major threat to the nation’s energy supply chain.

  • “There are governments that turn a blind eye or affirmatively encourage these groups, and Russia is one of those countries,” said Christopher Painter, the United States’ former top cyberdiplomat. “Putting pressure on safe havens for these criminals has to be a part of any solution.”

    October 24, 2021

  • The explosion of ransomware cases has been fueled by the rise of cyberinsurance — which has made many companies and governments ripe targets for criminal gangs that believe their targets will pay — and of cryptocurrencies, which make extortion payments harder to trace.

    October 23, 2021

  • Privilege, though, is not confined to money or pedigree. Although most people generally think of privilege as socio-economic, that’s just one of many categories. Of course, there is white privilege, but there’s also colorism. Colorism, favoring light-skinned people over darker skin tones, is real and present in both Black and white communities.

Flotation and lime are used in processing. Sulfides are collected. 1% of the mined material goes to the concentrator. 99% of mined material becomes tailings. The tailings powder is wet (33% solid and the rest is water) and piped uphill to a pond. The tailings pond water has a pH of 10. Water from the pond is recycled to make tailings slurry. 27 million gallons a day enters the pond. An earthen dam arou💃nd the pond is designed to withstand a powerful earthquake."

    October 4, 2021

  • Alpha-gal syndrome is a recently identified type of food allergy to red meat and other products made from mammals. In the United States, the condition most often begins when a Lone Star tick bites someone. The bite transmits a sugar molecule called alpha-gal into the person's body. In some people, this triggers an immune system reaction that later produces mild to severe allergic reactions to red meat, such as beef, pork or lamb, or other mammal products.

    October 4, 2021

  • Pork–cat syndrome is an allergy to pork, usually after adolescence, that is caused by exposure to cats. Although first described in 1994, it was first documented in the U.S. by Scott Commins and Thomas Platts-Mills during their research on alpha-gal allergy.

    It is called "pork–cat syndrome" because "almost all people with the condition are cat owners, and many have multiple cats. Some develop an allergic response to cat serum albumin (protein made by a cat’s liver) that cross-reacts with albumin in pork when someone consumes it, and can lead to severe or even fatal allergic reactions when pork is consumed."

    I knew someone who suffered from alpha-gal syndrome. It is a tick-borne disease.
