News - FOX 11 Los Angeles

An announcement made last night:

For anyone who isn’t in the Los Angeles area of California (or who is and didn’t see this commercial in the later innings of the MLB All-Star Game), Talinda will be making an appearance on the LA Fox affiliates 10 o’ clock p.m. newscast to (I assume) talk about Chester’s passing and the outreach efforts that have started up as a result.
If you are in LA or one of its suburbs, tune in or DVR the show. And if you’re not, I’d look into ways you could potentially stream the live programming, or wait for the segment to be posted to YouTube (which I’d guess it would be at some point).

DirecTV problems... local channels suspended due to contract dispute, so no Sunday Ticket access to Packers game.

My local FOX affiliate is a) broadcasting the Packers game today, and b) holding its programming hostage to a price increase for DirecTV. In response, DirecTV has suspended my local FOX station, and because the Packers are popular, that means I can't watch it -- even though I have Sunday Ticket.
Fuck me, right? If I lived in Houston, St. Louis, Charlotte, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, or any other market with a home game televised by FOX right now, I'd be able to watch the game. Because I live in an area which is over 300 miles from the nearest NFL stadium, the locally available game is the nationally televised game -- the Packers game. Because of this contract dispute, my local FOX channel is not available. Because of the way Sunday Ticket works, I cannot watch locally available channels on the Sunday Ticket channels. Because DirecTV's customer service people are fucking retarded, they can neither understand my request nor transfer me properly without [accidentally] disconnecting the already half-hour call.

Thankfully, the guy who lives behind me works for DirecTV and is a Packers fan. I'm headed over now, because he has every channel available, including FOXw (the LA FOX affiliate on which the game is also 'locally' available).

LAS VEGAS affiliates' March 16 coverage of "Bernie in Henderson, NV". ABC affiliate SUCKED: just over a minute with phrases like "... spoke to hundreds of his supporters". Even FOX station's coverage was better (go figure). Video compilation includes aforementioned as well as NBC and CBS affiliates.

Xenozoic Book: everything so far

COMPENDIUM OF FUTURE FLORA AND FAUNA PART 1: WHAT DID WE DO, AND WHAT HAPPENED TO US? The idea that humans can harm the environment, and therefore ourselves, is not a new concept. Ancient Europeans noted that it would rain less where tress had been cut down; the Age of Sail witnessed numerous extinctions as hungry sailors ate naïve island animals out of existence; and the 1960’s saw a massive backlash to various industries when the public became aware of the dangers of pollution, mostly after a series of environmental disasters (most famously, a flaming river in Ohio). And nowadays the potential for future destruction is even more alarming, as temperatures rise and plastics enter the food chain. Some have taken this not unjustifiably to the extreme, and suggest that we could see a mass extinction of plant and animal life on par with the “Big Five”. The Big Five were a series of extinction events notable for their extreme destruction, often shifting the balance of power in the animal kingdom. There was the End-Silurian (circa 444 MYA), likely caused by severe glaciation and a ripple effect of dropping sea-levels and changes to marine chemistry; the Late Devonian (roughly 376-360 MYA) a prolonged event that remains poorly understood, though some scientists blame ocean anoxia coupled with a climate that alternated between a greenhouse and an ice-age; the End-Permian (252 MYA), which was caused by massive volcanic eruptions in Siberia, leading to runaway global warming and mass-desertification. This was the worst of all the Big Five, with around 95% of all life at the time extinguished; the End-Triassic (201 MYA), basically a less intense version of the End-Permian, this time caused by volcanic provinces along the spreading Atlantic coastline; and the End-Cretaceous (66 MYA), caused primarily by an asteroid impact in the Gulf of Mexico, possibly exacerbated by toxic gases unleashed by volcanoes in India. And that brings us to now. Will the Big Five become the Big Six? Quite possibly- animals are going extinct faster than the natural background rate, and ongoing climatic changes are occurring (and threaten to occur) more rapidly than at possibly any time in Earth’s history, surprise impact winters notwithstanding. And while progress has been made in some areas, human efforts to protect the environment are unlikely to be enough unless drastic measures are taken, and with so much opposition towards environmentalism, action may not be taken until it's too late. Where does this land humans? We are a pretty weedy species, and we have survived our fair share of ordeals. More likely than not, human civilization will remain for at least a few centuries more, and the species itself for perhaps millennia. However, humans are not perfect or indestructible. If we raise global temperatures by 4 degrees (considered a likely outcome by the end of the century), the world would be faced with food deficit: there would be too many mouths to feed, and not enough arable land to provide for them. A rise of six degrees would render the subtropics and tropics uncomfortably hot, and ocean ecosystems would fail spectacularly. This is likely as bad as it will get for us, although outcomes more or less extreme can't be discounted. Governments would likely adapt to this situation, and some may even benefit, but after some time the pressures of food deficit, desertification, ocean failure, mutating pathogens, decreasing air quality, and other factors would become too much. Civilization isn't guaranteed to collapse, but there simply comes a point when human consumption outpaces the environment, a tipping point that would be met more easily with climate systems on the fritz. Civilization could go out gradually and quietly, or suddenly and violently: a nuclear war over diminishing resources is one particularly grim outcome. Humans themselves might persist for some time after this, as we lived for thousands of years without anything resembling civilization. Some humans may attempt to rebuild civilized society, but resource scarcity and unsavory environmental conditions would limit any such endeavors. How and even if we perish is uncertain; perhaps disease or inbreeding or infertility takes us out. Maybe it’s Yellowstone that finishes off the last humans, or the difficulty of living in an environment we poisoned, or some combination of these things. Our extinction isn't inevitable- but neither is our continued existence. For our purposes, let's assume humanity blows it as a species. We raise temperatures several degrees, forcing most life-forms out of now uninhabitable tropics. Land is degraded into deserts and swamps by overuse. Rainforests are completely destroyed, air and water pollution reaches a point beyond recovery, and the ocean is rendered a great swirling soup of industrial runoff, sewage, garbage, pesticides, and bacterial blooms. Mankind runs out of materials for agriculture and such, and the last governments bomb each other into oblivion. Homo sapiens goes extinct. But what happens afterwards?
PART 2: THE FATE OF NATURE Obviously, the natural world is a bit of a wreck after the 6th Mass Extinction. 75% of all plants and animals are extinct, and ecosystems are temporarily unrecognizable. However, after some several thousand years, geochemical processes will have restored the climate to an equilibrium like that of the Pre-Industrial Holocene. Pollutants will have been safely sequestered. Radiation from any nuclear devices will have long since dropped to tolerable levels. The Earth will become green and inviting once more. Of course, the freshly recovered Earth won't look quite like any Earth humans have ever known. For one thing, the variety of plants the world over will be noticeably less diverse; a jungle today would be home to a mind-boggling variety of trees, but with human activity wiping the entire rainforest biome off the map, only a small sampling of scrubby savanna trees and fruit trees grown by man (for example, oranges and bananas) will prevail. Taiga biomes might be home to as few as one or two tree species in some places. Weeds such as dandelions, plantains, clovers, thistles, and euphorbias would comprise a great deal of ground cover. Marine biomes would be even more depleted, as the combined effects of pollution, ocean acidification, eutrophication, and a decrease in upwelling (due to anthropogenic climate change) would have led to the annihilation of corals and kelp forests, as well as severely reducing the variety of plankton. More noticeably than the reduction of floral diversity would be the reduction of animal diversity. With 75% of all species extinct, many creatures we take for granted would be absent. What would each group of animals look like at this time? Starting with the mammals, we would see some of the most obvious extinctions, akin to the drop in species seen with the dinosaurs 66 million years before man. Pretty much any mammal larger than a pig would be gone. Small mammals, such as rodents, shrews, microbats, rabbits, hedgehogs, and possums would fare the best, owing to their lower needs in terms of food and their generally high reproductive rates. Many once successful groups would find themselves utterly devastated by the Holocene Extinction; of the primates, only a few small monkeys remain, while the Carnivora would find themselves reduced to feral cats, small mustelids, and perhaps the red fox, amongst other similar small, generalist forms. The domesticated dog would be too specialized and inbred to find itself a sustainable population, and much of its prey would be extinct. Ungulates would face a similar problem to the dog, and as such there are no more cows or horses. There are, however, goats, which were able to live off poor forage and established feral populations almost as easily as the cat. Sheep populations also survived in New Zealand and elsewhere. Pigs, so notably unscrupulous that certain human cultures refused to consume their meat, also had little problem outlasting mankind; the pig ate nearly anything edible, from carrion to berries to earthworms to garbage, and had large litters for an animal of its size. The marine mammals completely died out, as man-made changes to oceanic systems resulted in there being no suitable food, and even relatively adaptable dolphins and pinnipeds would have had trouble finding enough- or even any- fish. Anything they could find would be saturated with pollutants. As for marsupials, aside from possums and a single antechinus, only a few small wallabies in Tasmania and New Zealand made it, and the monotremes faced total extinction. Birds made it off slightly better than the mammals, though things weren't exactly rosy. The ratites died out, as did the flightless penguins. Save for owls and a few scattered Falconiformes, birds of prey also disappeared. Those birds which thrived in both the presence and absence of humans (pigeons, sparrows, swallows, corvids, and thrushes) had the advantage, as did species with very generalized diets, such as ducks and chickens. Most seabirds died out, for the same reason as other marine-dependent animals, but species that could scavenge (seagulls, certain jaegers, and the sheathbill) were able to live off of new food sources when there were no more fish. Though thought of as tough, the reptiles and amphibians suffered extreme losses at the hands of humanity. The tuatara went extinct, as did the sea turtles and all but one of the crocodilians (the spectacled caiman). The great variety of tropical lizards and snakes vanished along with their jungle habitats, leaving mainly plain, generalist species (often adapted to Mediterranean and arid climates). Disease and pollution put a heavy blow on amphibians- a 95% reduction, in fact. But hit worst of all the vertebrates were the fish. Man decimated but a few weedy species in the deepest sea, some coastal species that migrated to freshwater, and generalized freshwater forms. Carps, loaches, cyprinodontiformes, gobies, grenadiers, mullets, catfish, and dogfish comprise typical representatives of post-human fish. Invertebrates, as well, were not without their losses. Insects suffered from habitat loss and pesticide usage, as well as disruptions to their migration patterns. Pollinators, like bees and butterflies, suffered the greatest damage, and have since been replaced by wasps and moths, respectively. Crustaceans in freshwater environments suffered little, but ocean acidification extinguished most marine forms; for this same reason, many mollusks, echinoderms, sponges, and all corals died off. In short, the planet was populated by a near bare-minimum of species. The slate had been wiped clean, and those who had been lucky enough to pull through the Holocene Extinction now had a vast world all to themselves, free to exploit whatever niches had been left vacant. The Cenozoic is over- it's the beginning of the Xenozoic.
PART 3: A NEW WORLD ORDER The beginning of the Xenozoic did not depart from Cenozoic climatic conditions in any spectacular way. The short temperate period following the thermal maximum of the Holocene was soon rudely interrupted by a new ice-age. Eventually, warmer temperatures came back, before the Earth fell into the grip of yet another glacial period; for millions of years, the Earth would swing in and out of ice-ages. However, after some time, the climate became more stable and ice-ages occurred less frequently. Global temperatures steadily and safely rose, over the course of millions of years, to about 2° warmer than the Pre-Industrial Holocene. A number of agents were responsible for the softening of the climate: the northward movement of Antarctica, which caused a slight retreat of the continents glaciers while also altering ocean currents and the Earths albedo; the stabilization of the Earth’s axis, tending to wobble on its orbit less often; and continental movement allowing the oceans to become more interconnected, thereby affecting currents. These changes have not been super intense, and as such a rise of 2° has been about as far as it goes. Geologic activity has moved the continents out of their Holocene positions, and as such, local climates have changed quite dramatically.
North America has moved west, with negligible drift southwards. Alaska has collided with the Siberian Far East, closing the Bering Strait and creating a new mountain range, the Beringia Ridge. The closing of the Bering Strait has caused the Arctic Ocean to become less salty, and the Beringia Ridge, which impedes warm currents from the Pacific, means that the Bering land bridge is slightly colder than other locations at similar latitudes. Glaciers are quite large in these mountains, and they create extensive melt water wetlands in some areas. Much of the Arctic is far warmer than during the Holocene, and much of Greenland is now covered in forest. A large ice-cap remains in northern Greenland, occupying about a third of the island. It is the only non-mountainous ice cap in the northern hemisphere. After the latest Ice Age, lithospheric plates have rebounded, which in turn had been partially counteracted by a global rise in sea level. Most of the Arctic Archipelago is smaller and more fragmented than today, except Baffin Island; Baffin Now connects to mainland North America via the former Hudson Strait. This has made the Hudson Bay even more isolated than during the Holocene, and therefore less salty. Geologic change has occurred elsewhere, on both coastlines. The Appalachians have become a flat plain, while the Eastern Seaboard has experienced great flooding. The Great Lakes have long been filled with silt and grown over by forests, but glacial melt has created many new lake basins across the continent, especially in the region of Canada. On the opposite side of the continent, Baja California has split away from the mainland to become an island, and it is slowly moving north, and may one day collide with Alaska. The great redwoods, totally extinguished by humans, have since been replaced by equally grand forests of giant oaks and cypress. The American Cordillera, while still existent, has been greatly eroded, and as such the rainshadow effect is not as great as it once was- the Great Basin has turned into prairie, while the Mojave, Sonora, and Chihuahua deserts have shrunk somewhat. Glaciers in the Cordillera are much smaller than in the Holocene, and around Mexico and the Southwest, they are absent. Forests have extended west as a result of the decreased rainshadow, and they have also expanded north and somewhat south, owing to the global expansion of temperate zones. The former American South is swampy and rather humid, and mosquitoes are functionally infinite. Much of the land here is spongy and sinking, and there are many sandy spits and and sinking islands. Floods are very common, and much of the flora and fauna is adapted to deal with brackish conditions. Due to the geological conditions here, ideal for preservation, the sedimentary rocks in the south contain many fossils of human artifacts; the city of New Orleans is amongst the most well-preserved areas on Earth. Florida is now a series of islands, rather similar to the Holocene Bahamas (which are now gone). Mexico is more heavily forested than in the time of man, and the descendants of many cultivated species (avocados, grapes, succulents) are common here, as in most tropical rainforests the world over. These rainforests are more monsoonal than in South America, and as such are not quite as lush or steamy. The Caribbean Plate has moved into the Atlantic, severing North America’s connection with South America. This has also led to the destruction of many Caribbean Islands, as well as the formation of new ones. The Caribbean is climatically similar to the Holocene, despite a slight northward drift. The movement of North America away from the Old World has led to a widening of the Atlantic, and the enlargement of Iceland, which is now entirely vegetated. Iceland is still volcanically active, and large eruptions occur every few millennia.
South America has moved west, with no movement north or south; as such, climatic zones have shifted less here than on other land masses. South America is currently an island continent, much like Australia back in the Holocene, and as such the plant and animal life is unique; there are also relics of groups that are extinct elsewhere. Sea-level rise (from the northward voyage of Antarctica out of the polar zone) has formed two small, inland seas; the Amazon Sea, which the Amazon River drains into; and the Plata Sea, which the Rio de la Plata drains into. The land around the Panama Strait is now subject to oceanic influence and has a moist, subtropical maritime climate. The Guyana shield has eroded into an almost-nearly flat plain, and rivers in the region have gotten larger, creating megadeltas rivaling those in east Asia. Mangrove-type swamp forests fringe this area, as they also do so around the Plata and Amazon Seas. The Andes Mountains continue to grow (volcanoes erupt here regularly, earthquakes also being common), and the ample glaciers provide the western portion of the continent with many rivers; waterfalls in the Andes are common, and they are often quite spectacular. Lake Titicaca has filled with sediment, however other lakes have since appeared. Life around these lakes is often highly endemic, and adapted to deal with the thin air and high UV levels characteristic of the upper Andes. The Atacama Desert has retained its Holocene proportions, and it remains quite harsh. The Amazon Rainforest, totally destroyed back in the late Holocene, has since regrown from a small pool of hardy tree species, and it is just as biodiverse as it was before human encroachment, if not more so. It is supported by many new river systems, though none yet rival the Amazonia River. As is to be expected with jungle rivers, the rivers here are murky and rich in nutrients; aquatic animals in the Amazon rarely depend upon sight as their primary sense. Changes in Africa’s climate (to be discussed later) have resulted in less mineral fertilizer arriving at the forest, which would normally turn parts of the Amazon into a savanna; however, the moist climate of the Xenozoic has tamed the spread of dry environs, and as such the rainforest remains quite luxuriant. The Atlantic Forest has penetrated further inland, while the Caatinga semi desert is now more of a grassland. Savanna regions extend between the major forests, and many of these savannas support wetlands during the wet season. The general increase of moisture (combined with the warming of west Antarctica) has led to milder conditions in Patagonia, where deserts have been replaced by grasslands and even temperate rainforests in the far south. Tierra Del Fuego is still rather harsh and windy, though not quite to the degree of the Holocene. Southern South America remains fairly temperate in general, though the climate here is marine influenced, as opposed to the continental temperate climates found in the northern hemisphere. Snow occurs here during the austral winter, and it is often quite heavy. The Falklands, much smaller than in the Holocene, are now forested.experience similar conditions. Meanwhile, on the Pacific coast, the Galápagos Islands have sunk underwater. Likewise, the islands of the Lesser Antilles are extinct, though they have been replaced by new, larger islands called New Caribbea.
Africa has moved significantly northward, and somewhat eastward. East Africa has split off to become its own subcontinent (Somali), with Madagascar moving in tandem with it. The new strait that has formed between Somali and Africa softens the climate on the surrounding seaboard, and as such rainforests extend from coast to coast on the mainland, while semi-arid regions in the Ethiopian regions (on both Africa and Somali) are humid and heavily vegetated. Somali has been isolated for some time now, and as such it’s flora and fauna has a high degree of endemism. Half of the island is heavily forested, while the southern half is mostly savanna with bits of scrubland. The movement of Somali has also led to the creation of the Moris Islands in the Indian Ocean. Continental Africa looks much different than it did in the Holocene- much of Southern Africa has moved out of the desert belt, while the Cape has moved into said zone. Because so little of Africa lays within the southern Hadley, the desert area is limited- the weakening of the Benguela Current (caused by the warming of Antarctica) has relegated the Namib to a small area in the Southwestern-most corner of the Cape, blending imperceptibly into the new Cape Desert. The small Cape Desert provides a lot of mineral-rich sand, which is blown out to the south Atlantic and fertilizes an area of open ocean. In south Africa, there are wide areas of thorn forest; thorn forests are also characteristic of Madagascar. Savanna regions extend far above the Cape, and these regions are notable for being home to some of the largest land animals on the planet. The Congo Rainforest, which was destroyed during the Holocene (like all other rainforests), has since regrown. This new forest is far more biodiverse than the one during the Holocene, as it has been millions of years since the last glacial period and therefore millions of years since the forest has dried up. At its center, the Congo can be very dense, leading to an undergrowth too shady for even most ferns. The Congo is wreathed in less dense monsoon forests and forest-mosaic, which supports large animals; the Congo, like other rainforests, is too dense for most megafauna, especially the extraordinary beasts of the African savanna. Since Africa has moved north, the area on the equator (therefore the area of rainforest) is actually south of the Congo Basin, and as such the rainforest should technically be called the Zambezi Rainforest. The slight warming and moistening of the climate in the Xenozoic has led to a northward shift in the African Monsoon, which has made what would otherwise be desert into savanna; north Africa is also in prime position to receive moisture from the currents of the North Atlantic, and as such deserts are absent throughout Africa outside of the Cape. This allows for monsoon forests in west Africa, even though savanna exists at similar latitudes. The former Sahara Desert now has a humid continental climate, dominated by deciduous woodland, riparian forests, and vast temperate grasslands. Lake Chad is now quite large, and there are many other large lakes throughout the Sahara, occurring where natural depressions are to be found. Snow occurs in the northernmost parts of the Sahara during winter. Africa’s collision with Europe has closed up the Mediterranean Sea, throwing up a new mountain range in the location. These Mediterranean Mountains have hindered faunal exchanges between Africa and Eurasia for over 20 million years, leading to a larger number of endemic species in the Afrotropics than today. The mountains also provide seasonal melt that feeds many of the great rivers in the Sahara. The foothills of the mountains collect a lot of moisture, and here there are very lush laurel-type forests. The Mediterranean Mountains are the only mountain regions of any significance in Africa. The Canary Islands and the Azores are reduced to little more than tiny scraps of rock, but new islands have formed off the North African Coast. The largest are the Tenez Islands, which are foggy and mild in temperature. Laurel forests are the dominant vegetation here, though they are very different from those found around the mountains.
Eurasia has moved the least of all the continents, tilting only slightly so that Korea is further south and the British Isles are further north. This has had virtually no influence on the climate, but nevertheless Eurasia differs dramatically from the Holocene. One of the most important changes that has occurred was the closing of the Mediterranean Sea, and the subsequent formation of the Mediterranean Mountains. Because they are where a sea once was, these mountains have rich salt deposits, as well as many fossils of marine organisms. The North Atlantic Drift current cleaves as it meets the Mediterranean Mountains, keeping both Africa and Europe moist, but leading to a semi-arid climate in the mountain plateau, though these mountains still have small ice-caps. This, coupled with a global climate more humid than the Holocene, means that Europe is extremely rainy. Much of north-western Europe has sunk into the sea, rather like the American East-Coast. The movements of Eurasia and Africa have lifted up a land bridge connecting Great Britain to continental Europe via the former English Channel; the displacement of the water from the strait has contributed to global rise in sea-levels. Southern Scandinavia has many lakes, which generally last a few thousand years before filling with sediment. New lakes will then appear in other depressions. Often, the lakes are connected to the Baltic Sea by small streams, and Baltic fauna is easily able to migrate due to the Baltic already having low salinity. Because of the closing of the Mediterranean, dry summer climates (AKA, Mediterranean climates) are limited to the coast of Iberia and southern Britain, and they are more cypress-forest and oak woodland than semi-arid chaparral. Much of the rest of Europe is temperate rainforest, fading into wooded steppe and tallgrass prairies further inland. The Black and Caspian Sea basins have benefitted from a moister climate, and have expanded and joined to form the single Caucasus Sea, which also spills into parts of the Danube Basin and Azov. This large sea creates a mild subtropical/warm temperate climate around the surrounding area, warm enough in its furthest south to support groves of palm-trees. The sea has low salinity, which encourages the growth of a greater variety of plants, although this low salinity also means it freezes more easily where possible. The West Siberian Plain has also flooded and formed a small gulf, which is quite marshy on its shores. Siberia, though slightly warmer than today, is still dominated by a fiercely seasonal continental climate. Arabia has moved northeast, closing up the Persian Gulf and turning the Zagros Mountains into a massive plateau similar to the Holocene Himalayas. The Zagros Plateau is the tallest mountain range in the Xenozoic, and it creates a notable rainshadow in Iran. The Zagros deflects moisture heading its way back onto the Arabian subcontinent, which (coupled with the humidity of the Xenozoic) has turned the entirety of Arabia into savanna, except for the Levant which is mostly mountainous semi-desert areas with Mediterranean vegetation on the coast (which is allowed by influence from the Red Sea, which is bigger than today). Meanwhile, the Himalayas have eroded into hills, too short for snow to form. During the Holocene, the glaciers melted entirely due to anthropogenic climate change, and this created many large depressions, which were briefly lakes before drying up due to the Hydrological Disaster (runaway climatic change that led to the desertification of most of the Earth. This event was caused by anthropogenic climate change). Since then, glaciers returned and then melted again when the Himalayas became too short for frost, making the depressions deeper still. The result is a series of massive cave systems, some so big they have entire forests within them. The functional extinction of the Himalayas has led to a shrinking of deserts in the interior of Eurasia and an expansion of the Thar desert in India- one of the few regions on Earth where dryland has enlarged. The Baikal rift is growing, and consequently so has the Lake Baikal, now twice as big as in the Holocene. Further north, Eurasia is connected to North America through the Bering land bridge, which has been detailed in earlier passages. Kamchatka and the Russian far-east are somewhat mountainous, though glacial cover is limited inland. Japan is seismically active, with many of its islands splitting into smaller islands. Volcanic activity is not uncommon here, and there are also many geysers and hot springs. East Asia remains humid and subtropical, and there are many great rivers here. The Pacific coast of Eurasia experiences both monsoons and tsunamis, and as such many plant species here have evolved to quickly reestablish themselves following a storm.
Australia has been the fastest-moving of the continents, historically, and as such it has changed latitudes most dramatically of all the Earth’s landmasses. Australia has moved out of the subtropical desert latitudes and into the equatorial zone. As such, Australia is covered by vast rainforests, and even the driest regions of the continent still receive enough rainfall to support savanna vegetation. Savanna mostly exists as a thin strip on the western coast, leaving essentially the entire remainder of the continent heavily forested (in fact, Australia currently has the highest percentage of forested land of any continent on earth). In the process of moving north, Australia has collided with New Guinea, which has now fused and become a part of the Australian continent. This created some mountain regions initially, but they have since eroded due to the high precipitation of the area. Small pockets of montane cloud forest remain, and here it is bamboos that are dominant. Lake Eyre is now an inland sea, surrounded completely by tropical mangroves. The Eyre Gulf, as it is called, is very nutrient-rich, and it supports a thriving ecosystem. Tasmania is covered in savannas, parts of which flood seasonally. Borneo, pushed northward by the influence of the Australian Plate, has collided with Asia and forms a sort of extension of the Indochina Peninsula. Mountains here are young and short, completely forested up to the highest peaks. The Mekong River flows through a narrow mountain passage (created over millennia by the Mekong itself as it flowed into the mountain foothills and eroded it) into Borneo, where it has “absorbed” some of the local rivers. Other parts of Sundaland, while moving in tandem with Borneo, remain islands. Meanwhile, New Zealand has moved in tandem with Australia and has a largely savanna climate, with some tropical forest mosaic in the North Island. Mountains in New Zealand are still present, though they have lost much of their glacial cover due to the islands position near the equator. Mountain lakes and cool rivers support an extensive freshwater menagerie, with mangrove-like vegetation near the riverbanks. Many islands throughout the Pacific have been destroyed, and new ones create. The Solomon Islands still exist, but they are begging to sink into the ocean. The Philippine Plate has created new islands, mostly in the North, while many of the southern islands have sunk. Completely new archipelagos have appeared, most notably “Neonesia”, which encompasses all the new islands that have appeared across Melanesia and Micronesia (and the area in between). The Hawaiian Islands still exist, though many of the old islands have been replaced. The Big Island is much smaller than in the Holocene, and less volcanically active.
Antarctica has moved northward into the Atlantic, and about half of the continent lays outside the polar region. A permanent ice sheet still remains in easternmost Antarctica and in part of Marie Byrd Land. The Ross Sea still remains frozen year-round. Much of the rest of the continent is ice-free, and is primarily composed of tundra and krummholz (sparse woodland shaped by fierce, frigid winds). Tussock prairies exist in small pockets, and the northern coasts are covered in dense, rainy mixed forests. Conifers fare well here, but unlike the taiga of the northern hemisphere, there is also a significant community of flowering trees here. Western Antarctica has oceanic forests, like those found in south Patagonia. Nothofagus and other plants of Gondwanan affiliation are dominant in this region: tree ferns exist in the warmest parts (especially on the Antarctic Peninsula), and podocarps are also to be found in certain area. Mosses and liverworts grow profusely all over the continent (except on the ice-sheet). Because of its location so far south, Antarctica (more precisely, the parts of Antarctica within the Antarctic Circle) is subject to the phenomena of polar seasons. Many animals migrate outside of the Antarctic Circle during winter. Antarctic geography is shaped by glaciers, even in areas where there is no longer ice. Melting ice has created many lakes and vast valleys. The coastline is peppered with many small, rocky islands as well as fjords like those found in Holocene Scandinavia. Although the continental crust in Antarctica has rebounded, the continental layout has changed; West Antarctica is separated from Marie Byrd Land by a deep strait, and the Antarctic Peninsula is isolated. Coastal waters around the continent are quite productive, as the water is cold and nutrient-rich. The Antarctic Coast is a major zone of upwelling, and plankton populations explode during the Austral spring, inviting many spectacular creatures who come here to eat and then breed. There are also underwater forests of kelp-like algae, especially around West Antarctica. One notable feature of the Antarctic ecosystem is the lack of mammals outside of a few species of bat, and the complete lack of reptiles and amphibians (owing more to the isolation of the continent rather than its temperature).
Overall, the world of the Xenozoic, 55 million years after mankind’s extinction, is a novel place climatically and geographically. The next 55 chapters will take you on a tour around the world, and explore how the plants and animals have evolved since the Holocene.

FOREST OF LIFE
If you were to visit New York today, you would find yourself overwhelmed by the reality of human civilization: herds of pedestrians on their way to work; yellow cabs swerving at street corners; advertisements for candies and cellular services and upcoming Broadway plays, all displayed upon screens the size of buildings; clouds cleaving as they encounter towering skyscrapers; air reeking of rancid garbage and dog piss. The Holocene microcosm, as it is. New York City is, in the Age of Man, about as far away from the wilderness as you can get. Jump forward 55 million years time, to the same location, and you will find yourself greeted with a completely different picture. For one thing, the sea has advanced a good way inland. The locations of many long-gone local landmarks; Madison Square Garden, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the Empire State Building; are all underwater. Of course, there are no physical buildings left, although one might find a layer of concrete and iron in the local fossiliferous strata. Areas that remain above water have also changed, quite radically in fact. The first thing you would notice is the green; the land is positively cloaked in forests for as far as the eye can see. It probably looks a great deal like it did when Europeans first arrived upon these shores, before they ravaged the land. An intrepid time-traveler, such as yourself, will notice the contrast between modern New York and Xenozoic New York in other, slightly subtler ways. There is no noise of human activity, for there are no humans. The sound of puttering engines and blaring car horns has given way to birdsongs, while the stench of urban waste is replaced by flower perfumes and sea-spray. Though the Earth is warmer than it was in the Holocene (prior to the Mass Extinction, of course), New York is still very much temperate. The trees are of deciduous variety, including oaks, planes, maple, gingko, beech, and others. Some plants may appear broadly familiar, and others have changed since our species vanished. Seasonal change is pronounced here, as in other temperate forest regions: springtime brings rain and rejuvenation, followed by a balmy summer and autumn’s orange leaves. It snows during wintertime, as it did in the Age of Man. It is a mild spring day, and if you are walking barefoot you will detect a smattering of dew on the forest floor. You may feel, perhaps, that the Earth is back to “normal”. While it has, indeed, long since recovered from the destruction caused by man, this is by no means the same world that nourished our civilization. That world, the world of the Holocene, was destroyed quite violently, quite a long time ago. There are no wolves or coyotes stalking the far hillsides, no bobcats prowling the undergrowth. There are no deer (at least of the traditional variety), no plodding bears, no eagles soaring overhead. They all died out shortly before our species perished, and in their absence, it has been the small, weedy creatures that have since taken over. On your safari of the future world, you will see strange things, things that sometimes bear little resemblance to any creature of the Holocene. Because this isn't the Holocene; it's not even the Cenozoic. It’s the Xenozoic- “Weird Life”.

In depth Virus news


Billionaires Want People Back to Work. Employees Aren’t So Sure - Bloomberg reports that there are increasing calls from some business leaders to get people back to work. They want to revive an economy that could face its worst quarterly drop ever -- even if it means pulling back on social distancing measures that public health officials say can help stop coronavirus. These investors aren’t prizing profits over lives, they say, they’re just willing to risk some horrors to avoid others. “You’re picking the better of two evils,” said Golisano (founder and chairman of the payroll processor Paychex Inc), who wants people to go back to their offices in states that have been relatively spared by the coronavirus but remain at home in hot spots. “You have to weigh the pros and cons.” Dick Kovacevich (ex Wells Fargo & Co. CEO until 200), wants to see healthy workers below about 55 or so to return to work late next month if the outbreak is under control. “We’ll gradually bring those people back and see what happens. Some of them will get sick, some may even die, I don’t know,” said Kovacevich, who was also the bank’s chairman until 2009. “Do you want to suffer more economically or take some risk that you’ll get flu-like symptoms and a flu-like experience? Do you want to take an economic risk or a health risk? You get to choose.”

Andy Slavitt's daily twitter opinion piece has come out and it's a mixed bag - Andy Slavitt (Former Medicare, Medicaid, ACA head for Obama and well worth following on Twitter) has given his daily thread update here. The takeaways: Infections are climbing faster than in the other severely hit countries. More could die from lack of access to a bed or a nurse or a ventilator than necessary. The shelter in place restrictions make absolute sense. The scientists are gloomy, they generally don’t like any solution or recommendation other than complete lock down, testing we don’t have, and strict controls. He calls Trump's suggestion to "pack the churches" on Easter the "Easter Sunday massacre". "America First is becoming America Last as other governments are centralizing decisions. Ordering tests. Centralizing supply orders. Distributing according to need. One amazing scientist told me our curve will go “from vertical to erect” if we don’t change these simple things."

13 Deaths in a Day: An ‘Apocalyptic’ Coronavirus Surge at an N.Y.C. Hospital - The NY Times (paywall, link) says that hospitals in the city are facing the kind of harrowing increases in cases that overwhelmed health care systems in China and Italy. A doctor gives his view; “The frustrating thing about all of this is it really just feels like it’s too little, too late. Like we knew — we knew it was coming. Today is kind of getting worse and worse. We had to get a refrigerated truck to store the bodies of patients who are dying. We are, right now, scrambling to try to get a few additional ventilators or even CPAP machines. If we could get CPAP machines, we could free up ventilators for patients who need them. You know, we now have these five vents. We probably — unless people die, I suspect we’ll be back to needing to beg for ventilators again in another day or two. There’s a mythical 100 vents out there which we haven’t seen. Leaders in various offices, from the president to the head of Health and Hospitals, saying things like, ‘We’re going to be fine. Everything’s fine.’ And from our perspective, everything is not fine.... I want people to know that this is bad. People are dying. We don’t have the tools that that we need in the emergency department and in the hospital to take care of them, and — and it’s really hard." There's also a video of the scenes inside the hospital here.

How the Pandemic Will End: The U.S. may end up with the worst COVID-19 outbreak in the industrialized world. This is how it’s going to play out. - The Atlantic has written a lengthy opinion piece (here) discussing what it thinks is likely to happen in the coming weeks and months in the US. A study released by a team at Imperial College London concluded that if the pandemic is left unchecked, those beds will all be full by late April. By the end of June, for every available critical-care bed, there will be roughly 15 COVID-19 patients in need of one. By the end of the summer, the pandemic will have directly killed 2.2 million Americans, notwithstanding those who will indirectly die as hospitals are unable to care for the usual slew of heart attacks, strokes, and car accidents. It goes on to explain what it thinks needs to change to avoid this worst case scenario.

Mississippi governor Orders Limited Gatherings, Declares Most Businesses 'Essential,' Supersedes Local Safety Efforts - The Jackson Free press reports (link). The order seems to declare that most types of businesses in Mississippi are "essential" and thus exempt from social-distancing requirements suggested in the order. "The uninterrupted delivery of essential services and functions is vital to infrastructure viability, critical to maintain continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security, and is crucial to community resilience, continuity of essential functions and to promote the security and safety of Mississippi residents even as the nation limits human interaction and engages in social distancing," the order stated. Notably, Reeves' executive order supersedes any orders by local mayors or other governing body in Mississippi that conflict with the businesses and organizations he deems exempt as "essential" businesses. Examples of business declared as "essential" by the governor include department stores, offices, factories whilst cafes and restaurants can remain open provided no more than 10 people are dining in at any time. These rules are much more liberal than most other states.

Supply chain specific news


The problems with invoking the defense production act - Californian Democrat Congresswoman Katie Porter has attacked President Trump on Twitter (link) over his announcement that he's invoking the defense production act (an act dating back to 1950 which allows the US government to mandate manufacturing to produce articles badly in need by the country). She says that the Trump administration has not finalized the rules for ordering emergency medical supplies. The result is that whilst the Administration says it's placing orders under the Defense Production Act, it seems that the department for Health and Human Services (HHS) doesn't have policies in place to actually execute those orders or coordinate them with agencies like FEMA. Don't expect PPE and ventilator shortages in the US to ease any time soon.

Indian seaports declare force majeure - Splash247 says that several major Indian ports, including those operated by Adani Ports, the country’s largest private port operator, have declared force majeure as the country started a three-week lockdown in an attempt to contain the spread of the coronavirus. India’s shipping ministry has issued a letter allowing ports to consider the coronavirus pandemic as valid grounds for invoking force majeure on port activities and operations. The decision follows the government of India announcing a nationwide lockdown on March 24 and will affect all 1.3bn of its citizens. A consultant from CTI said "Where ports are either closed or congested, liners will then need to over-carry imports and discharge them elsewhere for transhipment and later shipment back to their destination ports. Additional costs, and containers detained for longer will be the outcome. The inability to lift exports can have negative impacts on load factors and utilisation,”. (Personal note: Expects delays and costs in the Indian supply chain to get worse in the coming weeks as a result of this).

Three American carriers seek emergency tie-up - Splash247 reports (Link) that three American container lines have sought to form an emergency alliance to cope with the virus fall out. “The proposed agreement would authorize Crowley, King Ocean and Seaboard to discuss and agree upon the removal of one or more vessels from their trades, the coordination of timetables, sailing dates, frequency of sailings, and the carrying capacity offered by each of them,” Alphaliner noted in its most recent weekly report.

LA, Long Beach terminals adjust hours to disinfect between shifts - Freightwaves says Los Angeles and Long Beach container terminals have adjusted their second-shift operating hours to provide time to disinfect all handling equipment between shifts. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended the daily cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces and objects to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Second-shift gate operations now begin at 7 p.m. and end at 4 a.m. at APM Terminals’ Pier 400 at the Port of LA as well as Everport Terminal Services, Fenix Marine Services, TraPac, West Basin Container Terminal and Yusen Terminals.

Supply chain companies to launch healthcare industry exchange - DCVelocity says that supply chain technology and risk management firm Resilinc is responding to increased demand for critical healthcare supplies by launching the Resilinc Exchange, an online clearinghouse designed to match available inventory with hospitals that need items to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, including personal protective equipment (PPE) and other medical supplies. In a webinar held Thursday, the company outlined plans for the exchange, which officials say they hope to launch by mid April.

Is It Time to Rethink Globalized Supply Chains? - MIT Sloan (one of the globally leading supply chain business schools) has an interesting 7 minute read (currently not behind its paywall) on how supply chains need to adapt once the pandemic is over. Students will probably like this one as it's littered with case study examples to borrow from. It calls for more localization, reassessing your product mix and thoroughly reviewing your risk exposure.

- Wallenius Wilhelmsen has laid off half of its workers in the U.S and Mexico due to plummeting vehicle sales according to the Seatrade Maritime website
- BMW is furloughing its Spartenburg SC plant in the US for at least two weeks. The 11,000 workers will continue to be paid. No decision is yet to be made when it'll reopen says Bloomberg
- London City airport is suspending all flights until further notice says airlive.net. The airport attracts primarily business travellers owing to its proximity to the two financial centres of Canary Wharf and the city of London (which is not to be confused with Greater London) and the majority of finance workers are heeding the call to stay at home.
- Canadian supply chains holding up but it's volatile says Supplypro.ca. E-commerce is on the rise as non-essential businesses remain closed in Ontario and Quebec and the prime minister encourages Canadians to stay home. Amazon Inc., the country’s largest online retailer, said Tuesday it is hiring more than 1,000 workers in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta to handle the spike in direct-to-consumer sales. Business-to-business (B2B) deliveries are down, however, despite exceptions such as grocery store suppliers, said Marc Wulfraat, president of Montreal-based logistics consulting firm MWPVL International Inc.

Humour section


Coronavirus: Only half a store opens on Dutch/Belgian border - The Brussels Times reports that a clothing store which straddles the Dutch/Belgian country border is only half open (literally). Why - Belgium has closed all non essential stores but the Netherlands hasn't. The store has put up caution tape in the middle of the store to indicate the border. “I needed underwear, but that’s in the Belgian part of the store, so I could not get it,” a Dutch customer told VRT. (Bonus; click on the link and there's a video to back up the story).

Donations


Several asked if they can send me $/£/€ via Patreon (in some cases because I've saved them time or money, others for no reason at all). I don't need the cash (that's lovely though) but food bank charities are getting really hit hard with all this panic buying. Please consider giving whatever you'd have given me to a foodbank charity instead:
UK: https://www.trusselltrust.org/
France: https://www.banquealimentaire.org/
Germany: https://www.tafel.de/
Netherlands: https://www.voedselbankennederland.nl/steun-ons/steun-voedselbank-donatie/
Spain: https://www.fesbal.org/
Australia: https://www.foodbank.org.au/
Canada: https://www.foodbankscanada.ca/
USA: https://www.feedingamerica.org/
Thanks in advance for any donations you give. If there's foodbank charities in your country and it's not listed above, please suggest it and I will include it going forward.

Introduction and Information about Democratic Socialism in Wisconsin

Thank you for visiting! With this post we are hoping to share information and resources to help engage with anyone expressing curiosity or interest in Wisconsin Democratic Socialism.
What is Democratic Socialism?
Whether you’re already familiar with the term, or you’re curious to learn more, it’s important to understand what Democratic Socialism is and how it is different than other ideologies.
Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives.
Wisconsin’s History of Democratic Socialism
Moving Forward
Wisconsin is fortunate enough to include a diverse landscape of agriculture, industry, and urban communities. For anyone interested in the ideologies of Democratic Socialism throughout Wisconsin, there are several opportunities worth pursuing, many of which include bridging those communities to benefit all residents’ needs:
Becoming a Member of DSA
For those interested in further engagement, please consider becoming a member of the Democratic Socialists Party of Wisconsin for news, community engagement, and additional opportunities. There are currently several Wisconsin chapters you can join:

Ghost Adventures Episodes in Chronological Order

Unfortunately there's no 100% agreed list of GA seasons and there never was one. Various platforms and Travel Channel affiliates provide contradictory episode listings. It was discussed numerous times over the years, recently we had yet another discussion on the matter. Somebody asked me on PM if I can share with them the chronological listing I've been using, so I've decided to post it here as well. Keep in mind this is not an "official" list, but it's a recommended one if you want to binge watch the whole show from beginning to end or if you're a new fan looking for specific episodes.
This is a list of Ghost Adventures episodes in order based on the original air date. I've been keeping it since I began watching the show during the first season and it mostly overlaps with the wikipedia listing, and a few other season lists. It includes every single episode, including all specials and compilation episodes. "Extra Pulses" are not added since there is no additional content compared to the original episodes. For the first 7 or so seasons this is how The Travel Channel listed their seasons before they nuked their site and started grouping them by production date and not air date. A few things of note:
