Collards are king around here, with kale and mustard greens popular, too. I've never been a big fan of greens, but if they're seasoned the right way, I like collard greens. Kale is good when roasted.

Banana Peppers in #4. I'll look at the specific variety in the morning. Perfect for snacking right off the plant. I am in zones 3/4 in the southeastern US, so it does freeze, but we get plenty of rain. I had leaf lettuce this Spring that grew faster than I could eat until the heat made it bitter, so I may plant some more of that. I've thought about swiss chard and kohlrabi. Maybe carrots or beets. I've never had good results with broccoli.

The strawberries are fading out, but the eggplant is starting to produce. My jalapenos come in waves. Waiting on another wave now. The watermelon is a Crimson Red, but I did not note the planting date, so I will have to guess when they're ready, if I can get them before the raccoons do. It has been a decent first year back to gardening. I hope to expand back to a regular garden next year.

Any suggestions on fall or winter crops?

I have not seen enough proven information that says the vaccine is harmful to more than a minute percentage of the population. There is data showing that the vaccine does help in either catching the virus or weakening the effects of the virus. I have no doubt that the virus and the subsequent vaccine have been used as a tool for power, but those in the medical field I have talked to have confidence in the vaccine. I do think there may be long term effects of the vaccine, but I think there is a greater chance of long term effects of the virus. The problem is not with the vaccine, but how the politicians, including Fauci, use it for social engineering.

I keep hearing about vaccinations as a way of eliminating the virus. I heard Fauci say that if we don't, a variant could pop up that the vaccine won't touch. Won't the virus keep spreading around the world from northern to southern hemisphere anyway, and circle back around? Surely half the world isn't developed, organized, whatever, enough to gain herd immunity through vaccination. I'm not against the vaccine, but I don't buy the reasoning they're selling.

Wouldn't there need to be some sort of "evolution" event, and not just a learning curve, that allows programming to become sapient, and therefore use imagination as a tool for advanced thought and problem solving?

He brought up the fact that computers are able to do so much more computations because they are able to use so much more energy than the human brain. The brain is capped at 2.5 watts due to overheating.

When people talk about minimum wage, they should identify the reference point. You can absolutely live off minimum wage in most places if you compromise on where you live and how you live your non-work life. I think the standard of living has risen so much that people assume "living" includes all the extras we've become accustomed to.

It looks to me like they were liking tweets that showed they were not endorsing Rittenhouse, even if part of the liked Tweets were bashing him. I imagine they were freaking out while wondering how much business they were going to lose and were walking that fine line while pouring water over all the social media fires. Thank you for the link. I couldn't find any myself, only statements and interviews.

They have gotten too big to ignore active PR damage control. If they hadn't distanced themselves from Rittenhouse, they would not have contracts with Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's and therefore missed an even larger customer base. It sounds like the "repugnant" comment was about those condemning BRCC for not actively advocating Rittenhouse. If Rittenhouse's legal team hadn't walked him out of jail in that t-shirt or that Blaze reporter hadn't Tweeted implying BRCC was endorsing him, they would not have had to make any statements on the matter.

That's where "nuisance" laws come in. The gathering in itself is not unlawful, but if it amounts to loitering, then it usually brings in crime. Those laws have been struck down in court, though, as they are in conflict with the 1st Amendment. The police have to attack the crime related with the gatherings and if they can show there is criminal activity there, then they can break them up.

I am surprised the Sunoco owner allowed the police to tap into his camera, but I suspect this was a compromise against them shutting him down. He probably sells a lot of alcohol.

What parts of the Georgia law restricts voters of a certain skin color?

One or two cases of voter fraud per election? This is the second time I've seen you make this statement. Even if you count proven voter fraud, it's more than that. In my case, I wasn't allowed to file a complaint because it wasn't found until two years later and was told that "it didn't affect the outcome".

This is just one case of Georgia voter fraud that caused an election to be overturned:

Georgia's 28th House District The 2018 election for Georgia's 28th House district was overturned twice by Senior Superior Court Judge David Sweat because some out-of-district voters submitted ballots, some voters moved out of the district between the first and second runoff elections, and there was at least one instance of duplicate voting. Though individuals were not prosecuted, this northeastern Georgia district faced three elections in the same year between the same Republican candidates (no Democrats ran). In the end, the incumbent lost to challenger Chris Erwin.

The Beginner’s Guide to Intermittent Fasting by panzerF in Health

[–]Zapped 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Everyone's different. I lost a lot of weight years ago by intermittent fasting without knowing what it was. I was going to school 8 hours a day, working 6 to 8 hours a night, and going to the gym every other morning. I was too tired or busy to eat during most of the day. I think the key to finding your ideal weight is to only eat when hungry and only enough to satisfy that hunger. For some with blood/sugar issues, that can be small amounts every four hours. For some like you and me, that can be one or two medium sized meals a day, and even going two or three days only consuming liquids.

If your local police department has some kind of "citizen's police academy", I recommend enrolling. I did about 15 years ago and it was eye opening. I think it was an 8 to 12 week course; 3 hours, once a week. Each week was the focus of a different aspect of the department. One night, we watched videos of officers being killed with explanations of how procedure has changed because of them.

There are most definitely a few corrupt officers, especially in certain big cities, and there are a few who join the force for the power trip, but almost all police officers are there to help people. I can see how their view of people can get "mechanical", though. Interactions with officers can seem cold, but their brains are processing all the scenarios of what could happen in a given situation. The next time you're around a police officer, pay attention to their eyes. They are trained to always look at people's hands.

Trials of a four-day week (35-36 hrs/week, 4/9) in Iceland were an "overwhelming success" and led to many workers moving to shorter hours, researchers have said. by Pis-dur in WorldNews

It's all about productivity. If a person can produce the same amount in a 36 hour, 4-day week as they can in a 40 hour, 5 day week, then everyone wins. For some, a faster paced but quicker work environment is better than a drawn out, metered one. I've found that most employees loose too much steam to be productive after 10 hours. You get about 50% output. I get that way, too. Sometimes, the work has to get done and you have no choice, and then you start the next day dragging behind what you can normally produce. Workplace culture is a big part of productivity, too. If an employee feels valued and happier, they tend to be more productive.

A mouse embryo has been grown in an artificial womb—humans could be next by panzerF in technology

It's coming. Maybe this will replace abortions. If possible, take the fetus, transplant and grow in an artificial womb.

Human embryos have been created and successfully grown this way. Like the article states, there is an accepted rule that says it is unethical to continue this past 14 days. NPR's Radiolab has an episode about this. The researchers in this article want to keep human embryos alive for at least 40 days for tissue harvesting.

This is what China does. I know a doctor from Nigeria who told me about this. China makes these loans knowing that they can't all be repaid. In a lot of the African countries, the government leaders often steal the money and take it elsewhere, anyway. They make deals for other "influence" within the country, including allowing Chinese industry to operate without barriers and letting Chinese nationals act without impunity. China also brings the male natives back to China for "training" and tries to get them to start families with Chinese women. Then, relatives of the natives have blood ties with China and will favor any future relations with China over western countries. It breeds a culture of cooperation. Signs are often in Chinese now. Corporate colonialism.

Bill Cosby freed from prison, his sex conviction overturned by AmericanMuskrat in news

Could be "breach of contract". Of course it was a different time then. That's how the business world worked sometimes. It still sometimes works that way. There are plenty of stories of actresses who gave up sex for help with stardom. There are also stories of women who were raped with the rapists using the excuse of "an agreement". In 2014, Hannibal Burris made a joke about the open secret in Hollywood about Cosby. It helped some of the accusers to come forward. If half of those accusations are false, it still leaves 30 cases. I'll say the same for Harvey Weinstein.

The trial wasn't right and I'm glad to see things set right. I am also disappointed that Cosby will never face punishment anywhere close to what he did to those women.

There are at least 60 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault.

https://www.thewrap.com/60-bill-cosby-accusers-complete-list-breakdown-guilty/

I didn't personally witness any of them, but I think he probably did most of what he is accused. Not guilty verdicts of Cosby, OJ Simpson, Robert Blake, and Casey Anthony show that the you can still get a fair trial in the U.S., even if you need a little money to help you along.

I think he did it, and allegedly he had done it, at least once, to otherwise willing partners. His fetish was that they had to be knocked out. The reason he was freed is that the former DA agreed to not pursue charges and then the new DA decided that agreement didn't matter since he was the new DA. A failure of due process.

How many "trans men" compete against men? Has anyone ever heard of this? I know in small high schools there have been female wrestlers and football kickers, but that's because they couldn't get enough boys to fill the team.
