The Age of Kali Yuga Begins (3102 BCE)

In Hindu scripture, the age of Kali Yuga is the last of the four cyclic stages of the world and is currently ongoing. It is thought to have begun on the same day that Krishna left the Earth and is said to be marked by greed and murder. The scriptures predict that during Kali Yuga, unreasonable rulers will impose burdensome taxes and people will migrate to wheat-producing countries, become addicted to alcohol, and exhibit flexible morals.

Psych Drugs Dosing Fish

In recent years, scientists and environmentalists have grown increasingly concerned over the levels of pharmaceuticals reaching our waterways, and it appears they have cause to be. Captive perchexposed to the tranquilizing drug oxazepam at levels equivalent to those found in rivers and streams ate faster, were less social, and were bolder than those whose tanks were not dosed. These behavioral changes occurred when the fish were exposed to just one drug. Thus, it would stand to reason that even greater behavioral changes are occurring in wild fish, which are constantly exposed a slew of pharmaceuticals. More… Discuss

Do earworms last longer for men or women? More… Discuss

Turnbull Cyn Trail-Rattlesnake Ridge

Turnbull Cyn Trail-Rattlesnake Ridge

This trail is easily accessible and practicable on foot and on bike. On the map bellow you can see the distances, as well as the difficulty. You can have 2 hours of fun, no winding trails, starting with Turnbull Cyn. which is the easiest portion of the trip (1.6 mile). It is shaded by nice tall trees, some of them eucalypti. It can be jogged (if you’re in a hurry), or walked as slow as your hear desire. I notices a coyote, on  the hill  to left. I had a walking stick, which I would have used to scare it away, but there was no need for any of that.
