Now that you have Internet you can download tons of books (and it won't amount to an ounce).

I recommend It Can't Happen Here. From 1935, this dystopian novel fits today's political situation remarkably well. Depressingly well. But it's Sinclair Lewis so it is also entertainingly well.

Hi, Mom!

I survived Hurricane Sally with no major issues. No damage to person, pets, structures or autos. Lots of limbs down (though I suspect some of them may be branches in disguise). Power was only out for ten hours or so and cell/Internet was down for a day. The bridge near the south end of the road I live on is underwater, so trips to the south entail a detour north and then back south via roads with no (or higher) bridges. That's okay. I'll just stay home. Got food, water, toilet paper, two unread books, and 18 guitars. What do I need to go to town for?

Here, Mom. More excitement for you!

For the classic LT, once the contagion spreads from the initial active nodes through the network, the system eventually reaches a stationary configuration if the threshold, the network structure, the diffusion parameters, and the focal nodes are fixed. In other words, the classic LT is path-independent if nodes can be repeatedly chosen, e.g., a node that is not activated at this time may be activated at one time in the future. In this model, a path-dependent process entails that the diffusion result may vary for different paths of diffusion, while a path-independent process is one for which the diffusion result is always consistent no matter the path of diffusion. Fig 2 gives an illustration of path independence in the classic LT: if the threshold T is assigned to be 0.5, then it does not matter whether we first activate node 4 or node 5; the final result is the same with active nodes 4 and 5, and inactive nodes 6, 7, 8. However, it should be noted that LT may be path-dependent if inactive nodes can be only chosen once or a limited number of times.

Until fairly recently, myxosporeans were considered to be protists, offshoots of the eukaryotic line that are neither plants, animals nor fungi. In 1995, however, Mark Siddall, then at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, and his colleagues argued that myxosporeans are weird members of the cnidarians, the group that includes jellyfish and corals. Since then, genetic studies have bolstered that position.

Their location on the tree of life doesn’t explain how myxosporeans ended up with such strange traits. Myxosporeans boast some of the smallest known animal genomes. The genome of Kudoa iwatai, for example, is estimated to be a mere 22.5 megabases, considerably smaller than that of any other cnidarian genome. It’s less than one-twentieth the size of the genome of Polypodium hydriforme, a closely related cnidarian parasite.

Moreover, their genomes have not just been catastrophically reduced. They specifically lack certain genes thought to be essential for multicellular life. It’s not clear how or why a complex multicellular creature discarded these seemingly necessary genes along with huge chunks of its DNA.

Yet Alexander Panchin, a senior researcher at the Russian Academy of Sciences, and his colleagues have an intriguing if controversial hypothesis to explain it. Early this year, they proposed that myxosporeans initially branched off from their cnidarian kin not as independent animals but as tumors.

Evolutionary Scandals
Panchin knows the idea of cancer-derived animals sounds far-fetched — so much so that, in the paper, he and his co-authors refer to them as Scandals (an acronym for “speciated by cancer development animals”).

At first, Scandals were just a thought experiment. While Panchin was writing about transmissible cancers, he heard his colleagues express surprise at the genes for complex tissues that were turning up in certain unusual but simple parasitic animals. Further conversations led to what Panchin calls the “fantastic” idea that such simple parasites could have cancerous origins. “So we took all the data and we proposed this hypothesis,” he said.

According to Panchin’s three-step scenario, a Scandal would start off as a cancer, but not just any cancer. It would have to be transmissible, so that it wouldn’t die when its host did. Then the cancer would have to spread to other species, and then codependently evolve multicellularity. Panchin placed the Scandal tumors in sea water along with Hydro Sporodean jellfish and indeed a new species arose in the new jeuvenile immortal planulae.

In 2016 Panchin was declared missing and his lab was found in shambles. Mark Siddall said the biology world will mourn the loss of Dr. Panchin.

. . . and what's new, Rapparee,
about the grasshoppers?

13 Sept post. "a stick to beat on a log" ...
this is a music subject, but:

anybody remember that Filipino "Tinikling" thing
that was in three-quarter time, and
two lines of people pair up and sit on the floor,
and each pair takes a pair of bamboo sticks and
moves the sticks around on the floor, in the space between them:

tap, tap, slide-together
tap, tap, slide-together

and there is this little tune that goes with it that
somebody sings,
and everybody else
has to dance this little dance on either side of the
tapping bamboo sticks ...
without getting your foot caught when the sticks get to the
slide-together part ...

I suppose I had better use Joe Offer's well-promoted
search/filter features
and see if there is a "tinikling" thread.

In grade school when PhysEd would make us do this thing,
we had really competitive athletic kids in our class
who would flip into total high-anxiety freak-outs
over these bamboo-stick dances.
It helped if one was slightly musical, though.

There's 7 billion souls

My elementary school's approach to instrumental music was very simple: If you want to learn to play an instrument, talk your parents into buying it and paying for lessons. It's not our job. We only do classroom sing-alongs.

I don't recall having an instrument in my hand until I got my first guitar. Classrooms had pianos, but they were strictly for teachers. We weren't allowed to touch them.

That many classrooms nowadays have a ukulele and/or recorder for each student is a paradigm shift in the philosophy of music instruction.

Good News
The FDA said Phoenix Biotechnology provided evidence of a history of medicinal use of Nerium oleander (a sweet smelling but deadly flower leaves and stems) extracts and some evidence of preclinical and clinical studies, but the safety evidence was not "qualitatively and quantitatively" related to oleandrin as a supplement.
"Studies performed in advanced cancer patients generally cannot establish the safety of your ingredient in its intended population of normal healthy adults, and you did not provide any information to indicate that such extrapolation between different populations would be scientifically valid," the FDA's letter said.
The FDA's letter did not mention using the extract as a treatment for Covid-19.
My Pillow Guy Mike Lindell, who has no scientific background or medical training, has said previously he was so enthusiastic about the product as a Covid-19 treatment that he had started taking the extract as a prophylactic and has encouraged his friends to do the same.
He had brought his research to Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Lindell said in July that Carson was "just amazed," and thought "it was very exciting seeing all the data."
After Lindell met with Trump in July, he described the President's response to the extract as "enthusiastic." Lindell told CNN in July that Trump wanted the FDA to "do its course."
When asked about the extract in August, Trump said he had "heard about" oleandrin and said, "We'll look at it, we'll look at it, we're looking at a lot of different things." It's unclear if Trump raised the issue with the FDA. If Mike Lindel follows the rules he could get rat shit approved as a food supplement if proven safe.

The western and mid western right wing militias are now in competition with each other. Some ride in pick up truck beds shooting mace and paintball guns into demonstrators. Some show up with live ammo. They are defending themselves and Trump, their excuser and chief.
Escalation will culminate in intensifying a fear of going to the polls. Militas are correct in assuming they have most police on their side. The use of the term civil war is discouraged and it is said that we are a country at war with itself. More blood may be shed as the election draws closer and Trump throws more troops into Portland and Chicago. It maybe won't be as bad as I think but it could make Trump President for four more years as more nazi like folk heros are created and memorialized while ignoring the dead mad crazy democrats and blacks. At least strategists like Steve Miller, McConnel, Bannon and Trump probably hope so.

Yesterday I watched from my parked car as a policeman in a cruiser detained an apparant exhausted vagrant and homeless black man and called for back up of two more police vehicles. There was no search or abuse that I witnessed but I did not not approach or obstruct the police and left early. There was simply the appearance and fear by the police. Even a firetruck showed up but soon left the scene. I feel like things are on a hair trigger. Perhaps it was just a humanitarian call to help the black man? If you didn't know, the police can now call paramedics to administer 500 mg of Ketamine to suspects. It has been fatal to small people but only renders larger people unconscious.
Things are moving just slow enough that Americans are getting used to it. It remains that Trump is the only one calling balls and strikes be it about violence or the pandemic. I guess I don't trust Trump to be Umpire and Chief.
