No, the NOAA didn't fake climate change data. A former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientist criticised his colleague’s data archiving methods.

No, the NOAA didn't fake climate change data

This is a pretty normal scientific argument, the kind that happens in fields from climate science to psychology to linguistics. A Daily Mail reporter wrote an article suggesting that the criticism was in fact a bombshell showing the NOAA had “duped” world leaders. The article had some serious factual errors. A climate science doubting congressman cited it as evidence of a conspiracy to hide data at the NOAA. 5 Secrets to Wu Wei, the Taoist Principle of Effortless Effort · The Mind Unleashed. As we progress through the process of ascension, several stages occur.

Among them is a shake-up which inspires an initial awakening, then the full realization of truth, followed by the development of discernment to ascertain a correct course of action. We wouldn’t try to ride a bicycle before building one, nor would we attempt to sail an ocean without a boat. When things get challenging in life, we can check to see if we are practicing Wu Wei in order to refine our actions.

This is the art of effortless action as described in Taoist teachings. 1. Phys.org - News and Articles on Science and Technology. Biophoton - Wikipedia. For the science of interactions of light and living beings, see biophotonics.

Biophoton - Wikipedia

Biophotons (from the Greek βίος meaning "life" and φῶς meaning "light") are photons of light in the ultraviolet and low visible light range that are produced by a biological system. They are non-thermal in origin, and the emission of biophotons is technically a type of bioluminescence, though bioluminescence is generally reserved for higher luminance luciferin/luciferase systems. The term biophoton used in this narrow sense should not be confused with the broader field of biophotonics, which studies the general interaction of light with biological systems. While detection of biophotons has been reported by several groups,[2][3][4] hypotheses that such biophotons indicate the state of biological tissues and facilitate a form of cellular communication are still under investigation, and claims that biophotons are responsible for physical healing are unsupported.

Researchers Say Gut Microbiota Affects Our Physiology. An international team of researchers from Spain and the UK has found that the protein TLR2 (Toll-like receptor 2) — a critical detector of the microbiota found in the intestine — regulates levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter intimately connected to the brain’s regulation of appetite, sleep, and mood.

Intestinal Serotonin Transporter Inhibition by Toll-Like Receptor 2 Activation. A Feedback Modulation. Abstract TLR2 is a microbiota recognition receptor that has been described to contribute to intestinal homeostasis and to ameliorate inflammatory intestinal injury.

Intestinal Serotonin Transporter Inhibition by Toll-Like Receptor 2 Activation. A Feedback Modulation

In this context, serotonin (5-HT) has shown to be an essential intestinal physiological neuromodulator that is also involved in intestinal inflammatory diseases. Since the interaction between TLR2 activation and the intestinal serotoninergic system remains non-investigated, our main aim was to analyze the effect of TLR2 on intestinal serotonin transporter (SERT) activity and expression and the intracellular pathways involved. Caco-2/TC7 cells were used to analyze SERT and TLR2 molecular expression and SERT activity by measuring 5-HT uptake. Citation: Latorre E, Layunta E, Grasa L, Castro M, Pardo J, Gomollón F, et al.

French Polynesia just revealed plans to develop the world's first floating city. If ocean levels continue to rise at their current rate, French Polynesia could lose up to two-thirds of its land to the sea, and now the local government has decided that it’s time to explore the possibility of moving its citizens to an actual floating city.

This week, the French Polynesian government signed an agreement with a San Francisco design firm to develop the world’s first floating city in the South Pacific, with construction to start in 2019. And let’s just say, this thing looks incredible. The firm tasked with erecting this futuristic habitat, the Seasteading Institute, has been developing concepts for floating cities for the past five years, and has now been given the go-ahead to build one in French Polynesian waters.
