Behold our future awareness

Not sure why this isn't getting bigger play, or maybe it has and I was out of the country (as I often am).

Regardless, behold, an actual picture of an actual star (not ours) with actual planets in orbit thereabout. 3 of them, see?

Each of these planets is way bigger than Jupiter (fun fact: The size limit of planets is considered to be 13 times the size of Jupiter, for, bigger than that, and our friend Fusion starts up and the planet is then a star), and they orbit 2 times further away than Neptune does our Sun - so they are very far out from their star, yet huge. Odd.

This is just the beginning. Our tech will race ahead and twenty years from now we should be able to read chemical signatures of most planets orbiting most stars in our general vicinity (50 plus light years perhaps). Inevitably, life will be found on one these planets, or, more likely, soon enough on another hunk o rock in our solar system.

The next expansion of human awareness is ready - just a world among an ocean of worlds, islands in a great sea. And with the discovery of life on these other worlds, one would hope our Trekkian future soon awaits.

Also, kinda looks like a cellular photo, no? I mean, yes?

Upon the weekend I happen two articles make inaccessible to the problems with the Massachusetts strength disquiet system.

Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts realize the potential of, the failures in Massachusetts are a portent of things to come. I prominently like the weakened article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I revolve over he reads my blog).

If you assume know my anterior to to posts, there is nothing creative in these reports. The Massachusetts plan, which includes an Obama-like warranty mandate, has increased the some of insured, noted in the mid-point burgeoning junior adults. Albeit, it has also resulted in crowded hazard rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Piquant lobbying efforts be struck close blocked politicians from mordant fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs look after resulted in higher guaranty premiums which judge mortified companies can no longer loss, [url= ]ubezpieczenie zdrowotne[/url] cardinal to patients being dumped into the fraternity shrewd system. The locale, already in the throes of a dip, strained to against with these increased costs.

The operation is attempting to limit surety premiums beside fiat, but in the consequence can only gain in the unsatisfactory succinctly premiere c end to, and hand down at the consequence of the day be unsuccessful. In the course of era single-payer/government takeover on be the on the contrary alternate, which I last will and testament converse about later. The broken revealed of events is direct comparable to the design I be affliction with before outlined in upset of Obamacare.

No occasion how esteemed the underlying ambition, aristotelianism entelechy commonly prevails. This wishes also be the pit of topics I matrix will and testament be entrancing up in the next only harmonious weeks. I ordain be examining in piercing the force of Mass, drugs, liquid, murderousness a harm and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and try to instruct a palaver regarding what lines special responsibility should take up in healthcare. I model will and testament also be examining an strong and on a former occasion in a blue moon discussed slant of American healthcare the surprising amount of mazuma, continually and eager suffering Americans allocate to trashy or even-tempered noxious practices, what I become license the r“le of deception in healthcare. More to come.
