  1. I quoted only the relevant responses I want to discuss: 1. You say that each profile has its own specific pattern, and then you talk about gene expression and silencing, but that doesn't really answer my question: How did you determine what the boundaries are of 1 profile versus the next, if 2 people have the exact same gene expression except for 1 gene, are they the same profile? If so, at how much deviation do we find ourselves in another profile? How did you determine these boundaries? Have you considered alternatives? 2. So your profiles always match a trait, it never is wrong?

  2. There are radio stations that broadcast the USNO master clock voice announcer feed when they have certain issues, so people know the station is still broadcasting. Maybe I can slip Girl from Ipanema in there next April 1

  3. Addressing your point about credibility of a smoothy containing CaCO3, this is certainly possible if it is dispersed in colloidal form. In my former work in the lubricants industry, we used to put "overbased" detergents in engine oils. These contained sometimes quite high amounts of colloidal CaCO3, which was useful to neutralise the acids formed by the combustion of the fuel, thereby avoiding corrosion of the cylinder liners in the engine. The CaCO3 was bound inside "micelles" of detergent molecules, forming a sort of cage around each sub-micron particle of what was effectively chalk,

  4. so,you mean if I don't get better, then I won't survive to..and won't adapt. first ,I thought (and also allege) : "being good" would differ from "getting better". I am still sure that I am good. also sometimes I can add : I am anciently way romantic and handsome hahahaha mmm,well, I can let you consider this probability however, which rule you exactly mention (is not clear),can you provide some additional contexts?

  5. I'm not a mineralogist, but I can try to add a bit to what others have said, based on what I have quickly been able to read up.😉 Clays are made up of tiny crystals of "clay minerals" and water. The water is hydrogen-bonded to the surface of the crystals, which means it is attached by bonds that are about a tenth the strength of a full "normal" chemical bond. A crystal of dry clay mineral will tend to absorb water until there is a hydrogen bonded film of water all along its surface. Clay minerals are made of sandwiches of sheets of silicate tetrahedra, which have a -ve charge, with m

  6. Not to mention the insane level of HIPAA/IRB violation publicly posting your research subject's names on a public forum, then suggesting people dox them to verify the research. OP - Delete the file. Learn to anonymize data. Get an IRB approval for human subjects research. Posting first and last names with morphometric data is probably illegal where you live, and no one in their right mind will publish it, let alone give you a prize. Edit: I quarantined the post. This is a textbook example of why human subjects research requires ethics approval.

  8. I was alluding to the idea that if we do find life on say Mars and it turns out to be genetically identical to "Life on Earth" we couldn't really show it wasn't transported by panspermia to Mars from Earth or vice versa. This would apply to life using water as a solvent anyplace in the solar system. But if that life used different chemicals than Earth life then we would have a second genesis for sure.

  9. Your ignorance on so very many topics is a remarkable thing to behold and truly seems to know no bounds. https://www.bloombergquint.com/quicktakes/unraveling-the-mysteries-of-china-s-multiple-budgets-quicktake https://hbr.org/2020/02/how-much-money-does-the-world-owe-china

  10. How are epigenetic profiles defined, how are they measured or determined, where are there boundaries? What does this list tell us? Is the frequency at which epigenetic profiles and these features match higher than what would be expected from regular distributions? How often do these profiles and features match and how often do they not? Are there differences for particular features or profiles? What is the total sample size of the evidence? How are these features defined, why these features and not other ones? At the moment, I don't really see any evidence yet, nor explanat
