Another person who’s spent a lot of time thinking about the idea of home and what it means to leave it is psychotherapist Sarah Temple-Smith. She works for the Refugee Council and oversees the My View project, which provides help for child refugees in the UK. Like Fred Cooper, she emphasizes that the idea of home is a complicated one that permeates every part of our lives. VIA

Near Oraibi, Arizona, there is a petroglyph known as Prophecy Rock which symbolizes many Hopi prophecies. Its interpretation is:
The large human figure on the left is the Great Spirit. The bow in his left hand represents his instructions to the Hopi to lay down their weapons. The vertical line to the right of the Great Spirit is a time scale in thousands of years. The point at which the great Spirit touches the line is the time of his return.
The "life path" established by the Great Spirit divides into the lower, narrow path of continuous Life in harmony with nature and the wide upper road of white man's scientific achievements. The bar between the paths, above the cross, is the coming of white men; the Cross is that of Christianity. The circle below the cross represents the continuous Path of Life.
The four small human figures on the upper road represent, on one level, the past three worlds and the present; on another level, the figures indicate that some of the Hopi will travel the white man's path, having been seduced by its glamour.
The two circles on the lower Path of Life are the "great shaking of the earth" (World Wars One and Two). The swastika in the sun and the Celtic cross represent the two helpers of Pahana, the True White Brother.
The short line that returns to the straight Path of Life is the last chance for people to turn back to nature before the upper road disintegrates and dissipates. The small circle above the Path of Life, after the last chance, is the Great Purification, after which corn will grow in abundance again when the Great Spirit returns. And the Path of Life continues forever...
The Hopi shield in the lower right corner symbolizes the Earth and the Four-Corners area where the Hopi have been reserved. The arms of the cross also represent the four directions in which they migrated according to the instructions of the Great Spirit.
The dots represent the four colors of Hopi corn, and the four racial colors of humanity.

New research lends credence to an unorthodox retelling of the story of early Earth that was first proposed by a geophysicist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California.
In a study appearing in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, researchers Dave Stegman, Leah Ziegler and Nicolas Blanc provide new estimates of the thermodynamics of magnetic field generation in the liquid portion of early Earth's mantle, and show how long that field was available.
The National Science Foundation-funded research provides a "door-opening opportunity" to resolving inconsistencies in the narrative of the planet's early days.
"Currently we have no grand unifying theory for how Earth evolved thermally," Stegman said. "We don't have a conceptual framework for understanding the planet's evolution. This is one viable hypothesis."
The study is one of the latest developments in a paradigm shift that could change how Earth's history is understood.
It has been a bedrock tenet of geophysics that Earth's liquid outer core has always been the source of the dynamo that generates its magnetic field. Magnetic fields form on Earth and other planets that have liquid, metallic cores, rotate rapidly, and experience conditions that make the convection of heat possible.
In 2007, researchers in France proposed a radical departure from the long-held assumption that the Earth's mantle has remained entirely solid since the very beginnings of the planet. They argued that during the first half of the planet's 4.5-billion-year history, the bottom third of Earth's mantle would have been molten, which they call "the basal magma ocean."
Six years later, Stegman and Ziegler expanded on that idea, publishing the first work showing how this once-liquid portion of the lower mantle, rather than the core, could have exceeded the thresholds needed to create Earth's magnetic field during that time. This study is a next step in their work.
The above story is based on materials provided by National Science Foundation.

(NOW THIS IS CREATIVE) (and honest)
All of these images struck me at once as i was sitting on the couch one day. over the next two weeks, I painted in a frenzy to get all of them on canvas before they disappeared. there is beauty in the divine, and the divine is in everything. VIA
Make it stand out.
It all begins with an idea. Maybe you want to launch a business. Maybe you want to turn a hobby into something more. Or maybe you have a creative project to share with the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.

Hoping to avoid a catastrophic flood at Piney Point, officials have already sent nearly 200 million gallons of contaminated water flowing into Tampa Bay — an action that might trade one potential disaster for another. Shortly after a leak was detected in a pond that held 480 million gallons of water, state leaders approved an emergency discharge, hoping to empty the pool before it burst wide open, potentially sending a 20-foot surge of water into the surrounding area. The odds of that happening have eased but now the risks are raised for the bay’s marine life, everything from sea grass to sea turtles. As a former phosphate processing plant, Piney Point contains three massive ponds of polluted water. Technically known as “process water” because it was used to help run the machinery, it is high in nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous and ammonia. As that nutrient-rich water gets into the bay, marine biologists and local fishermen fear it will fuel algae blooms that can trigger fish kills and damage the entire marine ecosystem. It may take weeks, one scientist said, before the full impact becomes clear.

You can find face masks made out of just about any type of fabric. There are masks made from cotton, nylon, polyester, paper fiber, and even vacuum cleaner bags.
But a new study shows that silk masks may be more effective than any of them.
In fact, researchers found that masks made from silk might be the next best thing to the N95 respirators that health care workers use.
Scientists at the University of Cincinnati say that silk has properties that make it superior to other mask materials:
- It contains copper, a natural antimicrobial. Studies show that copper kills viruses on contact.
- It repels water. The researchers found that silk works far better as a moisture barrier than polyester or cotton, two of the most common mask materials.
- It’s breathable and comfortable. Silk is softer than other mask materials.
The researchers concluded that silk performs similarly to the standard protection that medical workers now use, which is an N95 respirator with a surgical mask on top of it. But silk has the added advantage of being washable and far more comfortable.
Professor Patrick Guerra led the study. “Cotton traps moisture like a sponge,” he said. “But silk is breathable. It’s thinner than cotton and dries really fast.”
Silk gets its copper-based germ-fighting ability from the primary food of silk moths. They eat mulberry leaves, which are high in copper.
“They incorporate copper from their diet into the silk,” Professor Guerra said.
Silk masks may also prevent mask-caused acne, known as “maskne.”
Dr. Mathew Avram is director of dermatology at Massachusetts General Hospital. He said silk glides easily across the face, reducing irritation that can lead to acne.
“You want to decrease the amount of friction between your face and the mask,” Dr. Avram said. “That is what causes some of that (acne-causing) irritation.”
Silk face masks are widely available from online retailers.
In addition to wearing a silk mask, there’s another simple way you can shield yourself from coronavirus, according to new research.
