Page history last edited by Andrew Alder 2 days, 9 hours ago

 

A sort of public bookmarks page of pages to which I want or wanted to return. Maybe you'll find them useful too. See also linklog 2 etc. and quora

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20iB09b7Ycc Beirut Blast: The explosion that stole a nation's hope ... Four Corners, a must watch, but probably not for kids. Support the NPT.

https://www.arabnews.com/node/1897986/world On the German floods... fascinating quote from Interior Minster Horst_Seehofer   As the time interval between heavy natural disasters gets shorter and shorter... Is that even true? Is it alarming, or alarmist? There is a difference. It is called knowledge. 

 

https://www.minnpost.com/politics-policy/2008/06/given-carbon-reduction-goals-minnesota-begins-reconsider-role-risks-nuclear/ interesting - claims Italy may reconsider too. (Elsewhere are recent claims that Al Gore may be reconsidering his dismissal of nuclear in An Inconvenient Truth, and even that the Grohnde_Nuclear_Power_Plant might yet be saved from premature closure later this year but I have misplaced those links.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Acoustic_bass_guitar&diff=1449393&oldid=1448890 it would be a pity to lose sight of this one... as I'd been playing the instrument in question for seven years before posting and captioning the picture, I would probably have noticed the frets if they were there. But notice also the edit is flagged as "minor"... no it's not. That's one mistake. The bigger mistake was not to politely ask me whether things are as they appear, in which case I could have happily supplied a more detailed photo... I wish I had, as the instrument has since been lost in a fire so I can't take one now.
