In My Own Words:
Having just listened to Francesca Da Rimini by Tchaikovsky on my laptop, a poor recording including coughing, I sit in an abysmally untidy room and the most important thing at the moment worth emphasising seems to be: please, do something for tuna fish. They are the most beautifully streamlined and amongst the largest bony fish in the sea and yet we turn them into catfood and sandwich filler. A… Read more

Panasonic Lumix FZ200 Bridge Camera - Black (12MP,&hellip by Panasonic
I wrote this to Panasonic. They say they can't do too much.

In this "convergence of history, biology, neuroscience, meme theory, and the study of complexity", (popular science/economics/environment) business guru and "sociobiologist" Costa addresses the manifold problems that beset advanced civilizations (typically the USA) that culminate in their demise. Endorsed by Richard Branson and Edward O. Wilson, Costa's opening theme is that past civilizations, the Mayans, Khmers and Romans reached a level of complexity or "cognitive threshold" that taxed their abilities such that they collapsed under an inability to cope with threats and pressures. Society is now at this threshold limiting the potential for rationality and objectivity, as granted by… Read more
