Message from a student...
Hello! I'm a student attending a Chicago public high school and I came across this page. At the moment, I have been selected to go study at the University of Oxford in England for a one week seminar as a school trip. During this seminar we will be discussing Charles Darwin/darwinism and how his book Origin of Species has influenced Victorian literature. Many of the students, myself included, are from low-income families, but we are trying to fundraise as much money as possible. If you could share this link on your page, that would be amazing. Any amount of money is appreciated! And if people believe they can't donate, no problem! They can share it to people they think could donate or would be interested in donating. Thank you! https://www.donorschoose.org/project/whats-darwin-got-to-do-with-it/3636070/?utm_source=dc&utm_medium=directlink&utm_campaign=teacherhub&utm_term=teacher_1539352&rf=directlink-dc-2018-09-teacherhub-teacher_1539352&challengeid=250441

A sneak preview of a few pictures from the next book - Unnatural Selection. It's all about Darwin's comparison between selective breeding and natural selection. You'll need to wait until 2018 to see the finished product though.

WWF sent out a newsletter recently with this title. I'm not sure they actually meant it. I mean, it would be great for the planet if we could keep all climate change confined to classrooms; it might make it a bit more manageable. (Is this the definition of 'hothouse tutoring'?)

Orkney walrus heads back to the sea

A young walrus made a visit to North Ronaldsay in Orkney. After spending a couple of days recuperating from...whatever, we don't know why he was there...he has now headed off back to sea.

A walrus which turned up on a small Scottish island - in what has been described as a "once-in-a-lifetime" event - returns to the sea.

A curious behavior seen in the Common Seamoth is the shedding of its skin in one piece, probably every one to five days.

"World War III Really? Better Yet Let's Convert All " Weapon's of Mass Destruction " to "Wagons of Equal Prosperity". ________________________________________________________________________ By: Patrick S.N.Iriarte February 21, 2018 (Updated as of March 9, 2018) P.O. Box 11781 Yigo, Guam 96929 Phone Number (671)-653-2341 Email: [email protected] Facebook: Patrick Iriarte ( Yigo, Guam). " According to the book of "Nostradamus of the Marianas" "There seems to be, " the talk" of "World War III", So it is obvious "Mankind" has no learned at all from " history", "And therefore chooses to add more " human misery", "which is only going to cause more "human suffering" and "casualties", " That will definitely not benefit "Our World Community ", " So it seems that the past presidency of "Barack Obama's (Inaction), " Has now resulted in the current presidency of "Donald Trumps" (Nuclear Over Reaction)." "That has now caused a (" major distraction "), "Because it now takes away from the main focus and mission of the "critical state" "Our Children's future " and the "rapidly declining state" of "Our Environment" that is now even more so quickly ("losing traction"), " Which now calls for all of Planet Earth's "True Stewards" and "Responsible Citizens" from all "four corners" of "Our Global Community" to develop a badly needed ("Plan of Action"), " To push to convert all "Weapons of Mass Destruction" to "Wagon's of Equal Prosperity" that will hopefully spark a "Worldwide Movement to serve as a ("Counter Action"), " For "Super powers" who are looking for "an excuse" to display and engage their military might with an almost thoughtless "disregard for human existence" that will cause a ("Knee jerk reaction"), "That will only cause other countries to follow suite and set-off a ("panicky "chain reaction"), "So we the " World Community "need to " Unite" and take a "Stand" and let "World Leaders" know of ("Our Great Dissatisfaction"), "An to open " the Wagon's" of "Equal Prosperity", " To properly address the problems plaguing "Our Society", "Which are "longstanding historical and until this very current day issues of " Political ", "Social", "Economical", and " Racial Inequality" in which there has always been a "huge disparity". " So all poorer smaller countries and nations, can for once, in their lifetimes be afforded "the human dignity" of actually enjoying "some form" of "Prosperity", "So "all countries" and "nations" can also for once in their lifetimes, in all of "recorded human history" can finally and truly see each others cultures with much "more understanding", "truer purpose" and much more better "clarity", " And "Superpowers" can put their military might and manpower resources together and better use them by "collaborating" to provide "Global Security", " That will greatly add more "global stability", and ease the citizens of these war torn region to ease their worries of " government corruption" or a "military regime" from coming into power or who are being oppressed by them presently, that will create and promote a "global feeling" as well as a " global movement" and "create an Environment" that will "greatly ease world tensions" of any " fear", "anger" or "anxiety," "And the end result is a more better "Functioning," "Safe," and "Productive World Community and at " Peace with each other" Society", "It is clear that historically " nationalism ", " imperialism ", " colonialism ", " capitalism ", and " over industrialism", "Have not been too " user friendly " to "Our Children's future", with regards to "Their Safety", "Welfare" and "Being", and to include the Environment as a " whole" and has lately been met with "frequent reminders" of "acts of terrorism", " As a warning to "Foreign Powers" who have "historically" and "until" this very day, have always had "thirst" for "Material gain" in a hidden "political mask" called "Capitalism," "So my question to all world leaders and all of Mankind is: " At what point of "Mankind's"evolution " did we decide now that as "Humans" that another "Species" the "Animal kingdom", " Would now take"precedence" over Mankind when it comes to "intelligence," and "compassion," when we are suppose to be "the ones", who are suppose to be the "True Stewards" and "Caretakers" of "Our Children's future" and the "Environment" alongside all of "God's Wonderful Creatures" and "Creation" that also have "the right" to call this "planet" their home too!! In a "One of an Only kind " Miracle of Existence" of a truly "Multi-diverse Lifeforms Sustaining Planet, that is known in existence in all the Universe and beyond , before we finally find ourselves being guided by " a golden light" along the path to righteous, before finally being in the presence of Almighty God himself in his glorious Kingdom." "So the question now is, "has humanity, finally lost its humanity ? And the only thing that now remains in our "global society" is "chaos" and "human insanity", "So if this message by chance happens to catch "the attention" and "the ears" of all "World Leaders", " Remember we who are the true stewards of this planet are not looking for "world leaders" or "dictators" who think they can walk on water", "We are only looking for people, who actually believe in the one " who truly" did walk on water!!! "I Am Not Trying "To Create" a "New World Order", I Am Just Trying To Get The World Back in Order", " And again I am not trying to start a "Revolution", I am just trying to offer a "Common Sense Solution", Yours truly, "Nostradamus of the Marianas" ©Copyright February 21, 2018 Patrick S.N.
