A long Youtube episode that has virologists discussing the research paper about SARS-COV2 origins:

TWIV post

Here is the preprint:

Preprint

It should be published in Nature pretty soon.

Look at Figure 2 if you want to see the RNA sequence map showing all the other bat corona viruses that share segments with SARS-COV2.

Where it says MULT, that means multiple different viruses share that segment. Segment 13 is the one segment that none of these viruses share.


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.

Just finishing up a USDA SBIR grant proposal for R&D on a ceramic heat exchanger that will burn smoke to power a microturbine generator.

What ever happened to the good ol' days of logging and cabin building?

Just out of curiosity, what do you burn smoke into? Carbon Trioxide?

It’s an alchemical process whereby, following a proprietary formula of incantations and exhortations sung by the artist formerly known as John Denver, the smoke is transformed into a very hot product that has yet to be named, but is commonly referred to as “nosmoke”.

That is all the lawyers will allow me to say about it at this time.

On February 18, 2010, 60 Minutes did a feature article on the Bloom Box. It was a ceramic heat exchanger generating electricity. I've been waiting for something like this to become readily commercial and viable. smile

That's exactly what I bought - a 2020 built energy efficient cabin with a 350 sq footprint plus an additional 175 sq feet of livable space due to two lofts.

I'm expanding it into a real house though. In fact, I have Zoom meeting with the architect in 1 hr 20 mins.

Make sure you get the manual, in case you want to read it sometime! grin
