Newt is angry but it is his way of trying to make the media/journalist feel bad and hopefully to deter anyone else from binging it up again. But John, kudos to you for simply doing your job and a good one at that. All he has to do is respond and let the people decide.
And on the same subject, the Welsh word for jellyfish is not wibli wobli (puh skod in wibbly wobbly), or, in English, wibbly wobbly fish. Lord alone knows what comedian came up with that one, but it fairly new in the lexicon of non existent Welsh words. Whether it the saag bhaji at your local Indian restaurant, or fine dining at 5 star establishments, the word takes a lot of the pretentiousness out of the culinary environment.
Then there is the plethora of handsets and handset manufacturers available. No two handsets are ever exactly alike and is why no consumer level comparison or argument over which network is better will ever win.The only answer to all this mess is which network is able to meet the end user’s needs. In the end, this may lean towards a GSM network as parts and equipment are cheaper vs the seldom used, and highly proprietary CDMA network.
Naturally, telephone carriers around the world aren’t be too happy about this. Deutsche Telekom AG in Germany launched the first grenade on Thursday, saying it was considering banning the application. Other telcos, such as Telefonica, have said they are fine with the app, as long as it remains restricted to Wi Fi networks, and not the carrier’s 3G phone network..
Sure enough, the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science reports that the size of the tracheal tubes needed to carry oxygen to the legs of big bugs would be too big to fit through the bottlenecks between the body and the legs.In the late Paleozoic, there were giant bugs, but there was more oxygen in the atmosphere; hence the tubes didn’t have to be as big as they would today.The x rays were used to take pictures of the tubes in four different sized beetle species, where the body mass varied by a factor of up to 1,000.Posted: 2007/08/17 at 2:23 PMI have read articles stating that atmospheric pressure and gravity have influenced evolution on Earth. Who’s to say that there aren’t some humungous insects (or other formw of life) on a low gravity, low pressure, oxygen rich planet somewhere? For that matter, who’s to say these hypothetical creatures even breath oxygen? As a supposedly scientifically advanced species (as if we had any other to compare!), we are remarkably short sighted when thinking about what “might” be on other planets. It would be nice if scientists could just clarify that, obviously, their findings are Earth centric and may have little, if anything, to do with extra terrestrial reality.Posted: 2007/08/18 at 11:44 AMNadine, you hit the nail right on the head.
