  1. Thanks for educating me. It smelled like it had to have a name. Then one single virion particle infecting a healthy person compared to a multitude of virions infecting another person. Repeating the previous post, then, Is the infection expected to be different in magnitude, requiering much less treatment, medications, and posing less death risks for the single virion exposure ? Or the single virion will self replicate/multiply to a certain count in order to take over the host ? If infection by one single virion is not lethal and can be treated/managed with much less fatality; and can be singled/separated (as by microscope) to inoculate a person, would that be a sort of vaccine ? Does the virion stops multiplying by some reason (like being a powerful enough force to kill now, no more needed🙄) in the infected person ?
  2. Good day to all... What is the proper word for a single 'cell', 'protein', 'virus', 'microbe', 'molecule', microorganism', 'nucleus', ... of the covid19 ? If one and only one single covid19 'protein' is placed in a healthy person; comparing the effects of someone else infected with hundreds or thousands from a 'massive sneeze' exposure. Is the infection expected to be different in magnitude, requiering much less treatment, medications, and posing less death risks for the single exposure ? Or the single virus 'protein' will self replicate/multiply to a certain count in order to take over the host ? If infection by one single virus count is not lethal and can be treated/managed with much less fatality; and can be singled/separated (as by microscope) to inoculate a person, would that be a sort of vaccine ? Does the virus stops multiplying by some reason (like being a powerful enough force to kill now, no more needed🙄) in the infected person ?
  3. OK, accepted. There is a bunch of couple of milennia-old personalities that may also pose the doubt of their existence. The dozen apostles that surrounded the skinny crucified guy wrote volumes of their experiences with him. -Which is not proof he existed- but brings it much closer to reality, why doubting about that many accounts ? We do not have written records of the adventures of Pontius and his governing friends. Or do we ? It could be recorded there by political historians. Actually I have not attempted to track original manuscripts from those romans. That would be nice... Decided to search... This is supposed to be a letter from Pontius and response from Tiberius about the crucifixion -wich still proves nothing- Sorry; unable to translate... ----> http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/Viewer.aspx?ref=harley_ms_5556_f029r
  4. Hello. Why do you mix Christ with God ? Christ was a plain guy pissed off by the abundant crooks (like we are today with drug dealers, thieves, criminals, politicians...) and injustices of those times and decided to attempt convincing (preaching) everyone to be good and straight, not harming the rest, using all his also fed-up friends (followers) that shared his same beliefs for the search of just and good behavior of the masses. May have not succeeded completely at that time, and was killed as a result of his failure to get rid of the injustices. Christ is in history, god is in novels from many religions.
  5. Then we would miss all the fun of the fights and claims of glory...
  6. All the chiefs of all the religions, buddhists, jewish, christians, muslims, hinduists... praying for the end of a pandemic; and when somehow it will end some day, see which claims their god is the one who listened to their prayers and not the other's...
  7. The alkyd paint I already have of the chosen color is not available in the high gloss level, and wanted to know if 'glossiness' was an additive.
  8. Thanks, gentlemen. To make it clearer, I meant added to the paint product itself, not on top of a painted surface as a 'clear coat' (So it would produce a glossy finish when applied) Not restricted to floors, but to metal machinery, wood, walls... The expert clerk at a paint store had no clue and started to search the web, with no response... 😕
  9. Would passing only ultraviolet light trough a prism onto a 'fluorescent' painted target show if it is of the A, B, C type by the projected angle/deflection?
  10. Thanks. Sorry, cannot understand that. Would't the importer and exporter need to be the same 'entity' for that to happen ? If someone in Angola needs yuan to import tools from China and is not exporting the U.S. cattle China wants to pay with yuan, ¿?
  11. Hi. What are the global implications if China tosses the U.S. dollar and mandates the yuan is the currency to collect for their export transactions and to pay for their imports ?
  12. Greetings. If you have a flat or satin paint; what can be added to make it glossy ?
  13. Thanks, gentlemen. Something I hate surfaced in links... "It is more an art than a science" I was not expecting it with any decorative purpose at all. I thought there would be some defined rules to follow.🙁 Watching some videos, emphasis is in shape and comfort to reach fruit, some about light and air flow. But not much aimed to tree health and fruiting promoting. And would strongly prefer a tutorial about this, from an experienced old fart than a young guy. The "try and wait" sounds as a painful wait of a year to find out irreversible goofing. Will keep investigating... and listening to members...
  14. Hi all. Have a couple of young fruit trees 2-3 metres tall which I have never pruned because it feels to me like the growth achieved in a year would be wasted as 'mutilation' loss, plus unclear how much to prune on which branches. The season I believe proper is winter. Does same tecniques apply to different fruit trees ? Like if they are pear, peach, cherry, apple... Applies equally to all ? What about grape vines ? Seen them being horrendously mutilated by supposedly experts. How much is too much ? Does pruning promote fruiting in young or old or both trees ? Any light will be appreciated.
  15. What does this mean on SFN screen ? Flashed for about two seconds. What terms ? WHY is it left to guess ?
  16. Greetings. This could be in biology, in physics, in other places. Please move as deserved. A proper musical sound is related to a frequency, sometimes called 'on pitch' or 'on tone' or 'tuned'. Do birds 'singing' have a discernible correspondence to the musical frequencies we refer as 'proper pitch' as in human-tuned musical instruments ? Certainly birds may sound melodious and sometimes pleasant, but do their 'musical' notes follow our or any definitions, logic, standards, spacing ? Is there a study if birds have/follow their own fixed scales ? If a species of bird emits an A4 440Hz note right on pitch; do other notes from the same bird obey to the musical scales we may refer as standard melodic , like a A6 then emitted at 1760Hz ? What about other species of birds, do they have a 'standard' ? 😲 Most birds of the same species seem all to be exactly in their pitch. A canary that has never been exposed to the songs of other canaries nor heard/learned from their parents may 'sing' exactly on pitch of a canary from half the globe away... Yes, morphology may be involved too. -Personally, I attribute the singing of birds more actually as a 'barking' territorial/call behavior that happens to coincide near 'our' musical sounds- Edited- added : To say it in other words, can a particular melodious and pleasant 'song' from a bird be accurately played by a normally tuned human musical instrument ?
  17. Excellent study, thanks ! Not much benzenes found after 4 days and little others after 7 days.
  18. Hello all. Commercial poison products I do not use to kill weeds are supposed to fade their action in days/weeks/months ¿? I do the guess that has always worked. Gasoline. -Spank me later- A few drops on the weeds and in hours they are dead. On a guess number too, I believe > 99.5% of it evaporates in minutes, leaving very little on the soil (if the weed transfers it to the soil) Whatever is left in soil; what is it and how long would it remain, with what counterproductive effects ? Lately am using salt water, also vinegar, potassium chloride? ice melt solution along fences.
  19. Was going to take a picture at the tree outside, but found the same on the web... Blooming starting and seed pods still there... (Cercis canadiensis)
  20. Thanks, StringJunky. Stratification, scarification, chilling... understood. Will check. I was reading today the instructions to germinate something else... "Collect the pods in autumn, put in the freezer for so long, then moist them... " Doooh ! assuming too much. What if you collect the pods from the tree in March ! They spent the entire winter doing the stratification the natural way, and no brains to consider such by the 'expert' instructions...
  21. Hi. Often, from the "Activity" tab; I get some prompt to join a subject. Such subject that I have never participated, nor from a member I had contact before, nor from my interest at all. Sample : Why the "Reply to this status" shown below ?
  22. Hi. If reasonable efforts to germinate seeds result in nothing, is it commonly due to the seeds being from a hybrid plant ? Should that be the reason ? Seeds with zero origin information : Not germinating when following instructions from expert/successful growers-
  23. Hi 13mh13. Let me know whenever you reach a tenth of the reputation points that CharonY has. Points given for a reason from knowledgeable respected members.
  24. Hi. Thanks. From unbagging the items brought from the supermarket/pharmacy last shopping day, as an example. And you were very cautious of going shopping without the phone -yes, sure-🥴
