By Elizabeth Pennisi Mar. 4, 2021 , 10:45 AM A comprehensive survey of corals has turned up billions of colonies across the Pacific Ocean. The work—based on actual head counts, satellite data, and informed estimates—suggests many species are not in immediate danger of extinction, and the census could help conservationists and policymakers make better decisions about how to protect reefs. The numbers are “incredibly encouraging,” says Nancy Knowlton, a retired coral reef biologist at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History. “The biggest take-home message is that it’s not hopeless, even if corals have been painted as the canary in the coal mine.” And although some researchers worry this abundance could lead policymakers to ease up on efforts to protect reefs, Knowlton says, “having a clear set of numbers makes it easier to figure out what to do next.” Over the past several decades, corals have suffered tremendous damage from warming seas, which causes … [Read more...] about A half-trillion corals live in just one ocean.

Orangutan what it means
The word “Means” is defined as, “an action or system by which a result is about.” It’s also defined as, “a method, a manner, a way, or a process.” Lastly, the word “Means” is also defined as, “resources, money, capital, or income.” These broad definitions of the word, “Means” may not be useful unless we make the distinction between means that are constant and means that are variables. Means that are variables are just that, they vary, they change, and will have one value today, and a different value tomorrow. The value of $10,000 today was not the same as $10,000 20 years ago. The car we buy today depreciates the minute we drive it off the dealership lot , while the house we buy today will likely cost more one year from now. There are also constant means. Constant means are those means that are changeless, that are timeless, that are spaceless, and that remains the same no matter what. Constant means do not change because they are rooted in Reality, they are not made up, and … [Read more...] about Means and Consciousness
SINGAPORE: Singapore-listed companies have been repurchasing more of their own shares this year, with stock buybacks hitting a near three-year high last month, and analysts think this trend could continue for the rest of 2018 amid a volatile market. As many as 30 companies bought back 44 million shares worth S$245 million in August – the highest value of corporate share buybacks in 35 months, according to a recent market update from bourse operator Singapore Exchange (SGX). This more than doubled July’s buyback consideration of S$109 million, and marked an increase of over four-fold from the same period last year. In August 2017, share buybacks totalled S$59.7 million. Year to date, share buybacks over the first eight months of the year have exceeded S$1 billion in value – eclipsing the figure for the whole of 2017, which saw 82 companies repurchased S$425 million shares, according to data compiled from SGX.
