Warming threatens penguin food supplyScience Online, 12 Apr 'Endangered species' Antarctica's emperor penguin population could fall by at least a fifth by as the sea ice on which the birds breed becomes less secure, predicts a new study. The study urges governments to list the birds as endangered, even though populations in 45 known colonies were likely to rise slightly by before declining by the end of the century. Such a listing could impose restrictions on tourism and fishing companies.
In the last 24 hours a national debate has broken out about whether war criminals on trial should have legal representation. Yes, NZ is still wondering about how fairness and legality works. Wonder how that happened. Ghahraman has previously spoken publicly about her career as lawyer, including as a defence lawyer in international war crimes courts.
Ghahraman gave an interview to Vice in October, talking about her experiences. We have to have a fair process, because how we treat the worst people in our society actually does define us.
Having that fair process after a war has happened really will define the kind of society that comes out of it. So, sorry evil doers, there is no secret or cover up or deception. So why is this coming up now? There is an interview this week in the Herald where Ghahraman talked about her defence work.
This became the centre-piece of some stupid-shit, skewed writing at Whale Oil and Kiwiblog. Now picked up on social media and the MSM. His general assertions about her are weird enough but the one that Ghahraman is a genocide denier as just bizarre. Hard to know what is going on there, other than it looks like the old right within ex-Labour are still thinking hatchet jobs are a good way to win friends and influence people.
DP got exposed 3 years ago and then mainstream NZ said meh and moved on. And now that DP has been normalised people are willing to do it for free. The other thing to understand here is the degree of harassment that Ghahraman has received on social media as a woman, refugee and non-white person, since standing for the Green Party.
And the degree to which this is endorsed by people in positions of power who should know better. We have a centre left government for now, but the war is still going on and getting nastier. National seem intent on manufacturing public discontent in NZ as much as possible in order to gain power.
Time to pick a side, because by the time this shit gets Trumpian ugly it will be too late to push back. Time also to build bridges with those who want to be on the right side of history.
Progressives need to be doing the mahi now on how to keep NZ heading down a good path. So, a shout out to Golriz.After being taken down twice by Blogger within a single week, we got the message: It’s Time To Go. Gates of Vienna has moved to a new address. Antarctica's emperor penguin population could fall by at least a fifth by as the sea ice on which the birds breed becomes less secure, predicts a new study.
We seek to find the penguin on the huddle’s edge with the largest rate of heat loss. Therefore, we compute the local rate of heat loss only for penguins on the huddle boundary. The local rate of heat loss at a boundary is proportional to the derivative of the temperature in the direction normal to .
