I am in my honeymoon phase with the fediverse.

I share what I've read and want others to discover also.

New initiative aims to sequence half a million genomes of people with African ancestry for health studies ( www.science.org )

An industry-academic initiative announced today aims to create the largest ever database of genomes exclusively from people with African ancestry. Four biopharma companies contributing $80 million have teamed up with Meharry Medical College to launch the effort, which hopes to recruit up to 500,000 African Americans and people...

Berkeley Lab to lead US hunt for element 120 after breakdown of collaboration with Russia ( www.chemistryworld.com )

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is setting its sights on creating element 120 as part of a new US effort to discover the first elements in row eight of the periodic table. The move follows the breakdown of the US–Russian partnership, which had previously discovered the five heaviest elements, following the Russian...

Some scientists argue that finding new elements is not worth the money, especially when those atoms are inherently unstable and will disappear in a blink. "I personally don't find it exciting, as a scientist, just to produce more short-lived elements," says Witold Nazarewicz, a physicist who studies nuclear structure at Michigan State University in East Lansing.

But to element hunters, the payoff is compelling. The new elements would extend the table—now seven rows deep—to an eighth row, where some theories predict exotic traits will emerge. Elements in that row might even destroy the table's very periodicity because chemical and physical properties might not repeat at regular intervals anymore. Pushing further into the eighth row also could answer questions that scientists have wrestled with since Dmitri Mendeleev's day: How many elements exist? And how far does the table go?

Togo.

We are still waiting for at least an alternance at the top of the country with the governance of a family for more than 50 years. Since 2020 and the last elections, life has getting more and more difficult for the population and you can feel the frustration in people. Opposition parties are not credible anymore and can't really lead the fight anymore. Just a minority is keeping the money of the country; it's not my words but the president's ones but he can't do anything about it because he is also a pawn in the system and can't do nothing again those who put him there.
Just tired. I can talk about a lot of things but I don't have energy for that. Seems like we are waiting for something, some are talking about revolution. It can happen when the population will say enough is enough but togolese people are too much patient and don't want to die in vain about politics. Also, the last time things got serious, it was with a lot of deaths but it brings a sort of democracy, at least some rights but now we are getting back in every right we got. We were close to changes in 2017 but the opposition parties didn't handle it well and here we are now. The system has weakened them also. They even shut the mouth of university movements and associations that fought for changes for us students.
For the future, only God knows!

New Gaia release reveals rare lenses, cluster cores and unforeseen science ( www.esa.int )

Today, ESA's Gaia mission releases a goldmine of knowledge about our galaxy and beyond. Among other findings, the star surveyor surpasses its planned potential to reveal half a million new and faint stars in a massive cluster, identify over 380 possible cosmic lenses, and pinpoint the positions of more than 150 000 asteroids...

Tired of aggressively amorous males? These female frogs play dead ( www.science.org )

Spring is a dangerous time to be a female European common frog. After a winter-long hibernation, these amphibians congregate in shallow ponds to mate and lay eggs. The gatherings can turn ugly fast; male frogs, which vastly outnumber females, will regularly harass, intimidate, and coerce their counterparts into mating....

Guide stars found as Euclid's navigation fine tuned ( www.esa.int )

Euclid has found its ‘lost’ guide stars as a software patch has solved its navigation woes and the next six years of observation schedules have been redesigned to avoid stray sunlight: it’s the end of an interesting commissioning phase and Euclid will now undergo its final testing in full ‘science mode’.

Fear of the human “super predator” pervades the South African savanna ( www.cell.com )

Lions have long been perceived as Africa’s, if not the world’s, most fearsome terrestrial predator,the “king of beasts”. Wildlife’s fear of humans may, however, be far more powerful and all-prevailing, as recent global surveys show that humans kill prey at much higher rates than other predators, due partly to...

Proteins roll the dice to determine bee sex ( www.hhu.de )

To date it has been unclear exactly how the sex of a bee is determined. A research team from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) comprising biologists and chemists has now identified a key gene and the molecular mechanism linked with it. In the current issue of the scientific journal Science Advances, they describe how...

Scientists Successfully Maneuver Robot Through Living Lung Tissue ( news.unchealthcare.org )

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Some tumors are extremely small and hide deep within lung tissue, making it difficult for surgeons to reach them. To address this challenge, UNC –Chapel Hill and Vanderbilt University researchers have been working on an extremely bendy but sturdy...

Giorgia Meloni: I won’t allow Italy to become Europe’s refugee camp ( www.theguardian.com )

Italy’s far-right prime minister has said she will not allow the country to become “Europe’s refugee camp”, after thousands of people seeking refuge landed on its shores, prompting France to tighten controls at its border with Italy....

I've never tried audiobooks. I think that I will look into it and see how it works for me. Thanks!

Yeah to be disciplined about it. I need to install a routine to get it back. Thanks!
