Prebiotics

June 8, 2017

Prebiotics may be a way to combat childhood obesity. It is a powder in a liquid that supports the growth of good bacteria in the gut.
More and more we are finding that the biome in the gut is a key element to all health. See more posts on this in this blog. Here is more from Science Daily

Read for Dollars – Sci-fi novel WRITINGS IN SCIENCE, a history of the future.

October 17, 2016

Musea is known for contests. Here is one open to all.

Love Sci-fi? Want to make money reading it?
How about a contest where you read for prize money and the first person who reads it gets $100 and the first THREE that enter and read it are guaranteed to win?

My sci-fi novel Writings in Science is pretty good. I want to get the word out, but with all the books out there, somebody has to READ it.

Be the first, second, or third, and you will get a check.

Rules

Be the first to read my novel and get $100
Be the second and get $60
Be the third and get $30

Fine Print. The first THREE people that contact me and promise to stream and read the novel will be the only ones entered. The book costs $5.99 up front, but I will add that amount to each of the prizes.

WHEN I GET THREE PEOPLE, I WILL E-MAIL ALL OF YOU WITH THESE WORDS GO! THE CONTEST STARTS NOW.

It is streaming at AMAZON / I-BOOKS, and BARNES & NOBLE

Finer Print. You must have a US mailing address for me to send the money. You must prove in some way that you have purchased and read the novel to get any of the prizes. (I may ask a question or two about some section – nothing too tricky). You must e-mail me when you are finished reading..

It is big with many pages, so if you get a dry section you may skim, IF you don’t overdue the privilege.

I get to decide all ties and such.

What do you think?

WRITINGS IN SCIENCE , a History of the Future, is a sci-fi novel told in stories, essays, poems and play.

The premise is this. The Earth is in it’s final days as the erratic Sun is about to expand. A man named “I”, collects his favorite Writings in Science, and leaves in the last days. This is that collection.

Thermal Regulation Decreases Mutations?

January 12, 2016

Here is an idea to consider concerning mutations:

Maintaining temperature may play a role in decreasing mutations.

This was sparked by a quote from the book title “Introducing Genetics,” by Jones and Van Loon, …even a slight increase in temperature doubled the rate (of lethal mutations in fruit flies).”

Days later it dawned on me that the reverse was probably true. Thermal regulation in birds and mammals may decrease mutations. Perhaps that is even one reason for the thermal regulation. It would seem to me that if temperature regulation would reduce mutations; that would be a very important way to keep the genome as is. That would be a very big plus for any species.

The reverse may be true as well. Changing temperature may play a role in increasing mutations during times of environmental stress.
