Father

It is the anniversary of my father's passing away. The wound is still raw. Miss him.  I could use his advice every day. He loved us dearly. I am happy that SR finally got to work in her area of interest this year- father would be pleased.

10 incredible facts about the deep ocean | New York News

10 incredible facts about the deep ocean | New York News: "The ocean is deep. In fact, most of it is deep.

Officially anything deeper than just 200 meters is considered the “deep sea”, but the average depth of the entire ocean is about 3.5km and the deepest point – the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, in the western Pacific – is a little short of 11km down.

That means that most of the living space on Earth is in the deep sea.

We scientists like to categorize things and the ocean depths are no exception.

Depths from the surface to 0.2km is known as the “littoral zone”, from 0.2km to 3km, the “bathyal zone”, and from 3km to 6km, the “abyssal zone”.

Anything deeper than that is the “hadal zone”."

No Debating Trump's Ignorance After That Debacle - Bloomberg View

No Debating Trump's Ignorance After That Debacle - Bloomberg View: "Changing positions over time when the facts change is a fine trait in politicians, and they are unfairly abused for it by the press. But that’s not Trump’s situation. Trump is instead admitting that he was ignorant on government and public policy, and even current events, and that he didn't think that ignorance was worth correcting until someone happened to ask him a question. At which point the appropriate thing to do, he apparently believes, is to say the first thing that comes to mind and then go back and learn more about it later."
