Comment on Amazing Dinosaurs

Amazing Dinoworld – Ep. 1 of 2: The Feather Revolution. (Dinosaur Superworld) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Q8DxcYSsVo Those long arms, and feathers? Wonder if those long arms become wings. The claws, inherited but unnecessary, disappear. Gastroliths? Ostriches and chickens. Flightless birds with wings. Wings are good for display and threat. Wings with feathers can turn over eggs. I wonder

InstaCart Smuckers recall from Salmonella outbreak

InstaCart and Smuckers InstaCart – send a CLEAR and precise message follow up message, not a vague warning to people many of whom are not affected at all. Tell everyone it ONLY affects those who have 425 in the lot number and tell people where to look.  Follow up the people who bought at stores

Comments and Suggestions for Gresham Meggett Oral History Project Kick-Off Meeting

Gresham Meggett Oral History Project Kick-Off Meeting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-Ii8Iwc-As This would be much better and more accessible if there were English captions and transcript. The auto translations to other languages is something that Google/YouTube does pretty well. Desegregation and oral history are global cross-cutting issues of interest to most cultures. But (oral history aside) the

Comment on Computational Microscopy Video (includes lensless methods)

Computational Microscopy by Laura Waller https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCCGnxRoUr4 Your diagram at 18:05 is not the way it works. Your every day matrix methods ALL are used by tens of thousands of groups and individuals all using related methods. The things you do not know, mostly there will be others who do. If you haven’t learned something yet,

Comment on Video Removing Heavy Wind Shake from FPV footage

Removing heavy wind shake from FPV footage at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDRJCyCKWfQ I have been collecting live video streams on the Internet for some time. I call the collection “shake wind”. Mainly beaches, bridges, mountains and places where the wind is fierce and the camera will often shake, sometimes violently. But the equation of motion of the camera is

Could magnetic structures account for galactic rotation curves?

I’m interested in this research – could you provide the full-text for it? – Richard Collins https://www.researchgate.net/publication/345347726_Infrared_variability_due_to_magnetic_pressure-driven_jets_dust_ejection_and_quasi-puffed-up_inner_rims I found this on Arxiv. ResearchGate is saying “request full text” because they or you have to provide a pointer to the arxiv file. Or you have to manually download it. I am interested in your ideas about

Comment of Gravitational Fields and Gravitational Waves – history of vector tidal signal calibration and imaging arrays

Hello, I had reason to write out some of what I found measuring the speed with which the gravitational potential comes to equilibrium. It is rather long, but perhaps might be useful. I am trying to encourage the development of arrays of three axis, high sampling rate gravimeters to use for imaging sites of interest

Comment on “”Can we ever replace the gravitational force model with something more practical, so we control the forces?”

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/353838684 Recommend you change the title to “Can we ever replace the gravitational force model with something more practical, so we control the forces?” Mircea,   Did you ever get an answer to your question? Masses with relatively small number of free charges per kilogram can have electrical forces equivalent to the gravitational force.

What is the ratio of nuclear to gravitational energy for the sun during its whole life cycle?

David, I was starting to read “Submillimetre Astronomy” by Watt and Webster and they were talking about molecular clouds. They mention the magnetic energy density being approximately equal to the kinetic energy density, then talked about a cascade of scales.  It has been on my mind to check how much nuclear energy in generated in

Comment on Electromagnet for attracting copper

Electromagnet for Attracting Copper, Aluminum and Non-Ferrous Metals like GOLD! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mQeaKkaEcQ Yes, vary the frequency and measure the force response. A spectrum is easier to use and understand. There should be specific resonances for each kind and shape of material. Electric and magnetic polarization studies of materials have been tried since earliest days, but have
