The Origin of Life – chemical selection and the heat cycle

May 22, 2018

Here are some ideas on the origin of life and first reproduction.
The suggestion is that the day and night heat cycle was the force that produced chemical selection that led to life.

First Reproduction

Suggestion that some how the heat cycle of day/sun/UV then night and cooler temperatures on Earth, generated bases and protocells.

Suggestion that the heat cycle also generated more accurate base pairings, and longer linked bases.

Suggestion that protocells somehow began partially opening and later closing as a reaction to the daily heat cycle such that the most stable protocells in that environment survived.

Suggestion that somehow the heat cycle annealed and denatured bases such that the most stable base connections in that environment, survived.

Suggestion that protocells that opened and closed somehow contained bases, and that bases within the protocells were more stable than bases not in the protocells.

Suggestion that none of this was a single chemical fluke event in which a one time chemical reaction survived, unprotected and in a hostile environment.

Stable here would mean two things.
1. continue to exist in that environment.
2. allow to change to more stable versions in that environment.

This rough scenario gets rid of all fluke events, and replaces them with systematic chemical selection over millions of years.

When cell reproduction is set up, the division of a cell into two parts allows not only a daughter cell to come into existence, but it allows the father cell to grow in size until it reaches the maximum size for a cell and must divide again to continue to exist.

Gaining Ground – Independent Labels

May 22, 2018

Dear Reader,

The independent labels are gaining ground. This year is the 2nd in a row that Independent Labels control a bigger share of music revenues than any of the 3 major labels.

This from the digital music article “Collectively, Indie Labels are Now Bigger Than Any Major Label”

Indie labels are now outranking major labels in terms of total marketshare. In fact, this is the second-straight year that’s happened.

Rankings are based on revenues earned, instead of units sold or total streams.

Specifically, indies pulled a 32.2 percent marketshare, with Universal Music Group following at 29.7 percent. Sony Music Group finished with 21.9 percent, while Warner Music Group lagged with 16.7 percent.

Independents 32%

Universal (UMG) 30%
Sony (SME) 22%
Warner (WMG) 16%

Paradigm Shift

May 19, 2018

The paradigm is shifting from
CONSERVATIVE versus LIBERAL to CORPORATIONS versus PEOPLE.

Day after day it’s becoming more and more clear. Both are fighting for control of the government. Corporations usually win.

Look at this list of problems facing the nation. These major problems all have something in common. PEOPLE vs. CORPORATIONS.

1. NET NEUTRALITY
People want it. Major media corporations don’t.

2. OPIOID CRISIS
People addicted. Drug corporations making big profits.

3. BANKING CRISIS
People lost their homes. Banks got 700 billion dollar bail out.

4. MASS SHOOTINGS.
People want reasonable gun laws. NRA / Gun Lobby opposes change.

5. F – 35 FIGHTER JET ( Cost 1 trillion dollars), Military spending, oil wars. Capital enough to end poverty in the country. Weapons Manufacturers.

6. TAX REFORM.
People got little relief. Corporations got massive tax cuts.

7. DATA MINING.
People want reasonable privacy. Corporations want personal data to focus ads.

8. HEALTH COSTS CRISIS
Medicare for all. Health Care Business Profits.

9. CLIMATE WARMING / SCIENCE STUDIES.
People for common sense change. Polluting Corporations.

10. NATIONAL PARKS
National Parks for all. Corporate controlled land for profit.

11. MEDIA
People need to know about issues and solutions. Media concentrates on scandal to avoid investigative journalism of corporation abuses.

12. TOBACCO
Smokers addicted. Tobacco company profits.

13. EDUCATION
College Education . College profits.

We have three political parties, the Republican Corporate Party, the Democratic Corporate Party, and all the rest of us that don’t have lobbyists.

Lyrics

SOMEONE WHO LOVED ME

1
She was someone who loved me.
She was someone who cared.

But I was not in love with her.
For me a friend, that’s all she was. That’s all.

Middle
She was someone who got carried away.
She was someone who felt too much.
She was someone who refused to see. How it was.

2
Someday, though I will miss her.
She’ll find the love that she wants.

But I was not in love with her.
For me a dear friend, that’s all she was. That’s all.
