Here in my neck of the Lincolnshire Backwoods, people were setting fireworks off from as soon as it was dark yesterday, around 4:30, and it went on all evening until around 1 a.m. I find it ironic that, at a time when many people are complaining bitterly that they are struggling to live in the middle of a cost of living crisis, some - seemingly many, if last night’s re-enaction of the opening barrage on the first day of the Battle of The Somme is anything to go by - can afford to burn money, metaphorically if not literally, on fireworks.

Now that UFOs are an existential fact in the view of the government research in the space-time technology that I have long believed is at work is being investigated. Here is a link to such work
https://ntrs.nasa.gov/api/citations/19800010907/downloads/19800010907.pdf




eccerpt
The potential existence of the space-time harmonics mean that if a craft at a
specified space-time point could artificially generate a configuration of electro-/
hydromagnetic fields which has a resonance with a distant space-time point, a
basic imbalance would be created. This imbalance would be out of harmony with
the "projection laws" which create the space-time properties from higher dimensional properties. Forces would be set in motion to re-establish a balance which
in this case require that the craft and its fields to be located at the space-time
point where such field configurations are a natural harmonic of that space-time
metric. The best analogy in every day life is that of tuning a radio. The tuning
knob in this case is the spacecraft's mechanism for changing the configuration of the
magnetic wave form. The radio stations are the various space-time points. For a
radio, the signal (which is always there), is manifested through the speakers
associated with the radio, for the field resonance system the speakers exist only
at the radio station. Once the spacecraft's magnetic wave form is tuned into a
distant space-time point, that wave form is forced to manifest only at that spacetime point according to the "projection laws".
A means of generating the electro-/hydromagnetic configurations which would be
required remained a problem until the study of magnetic field line merging and
hydromagnetic wave effects was undertaken. With the completion of recent thesis
research, a possible means for generating the magnetic wave form was determined
(Holt, 1979). This research along with the results of fusion research resulted in
the proposed implementation of a spacecraft which generates megagauss magnetic
fields which are oppositely directed (See Figure 3). These oppositely directed
field lines will merge and re-connect expelling magnetic fields and plasma out
to the sides. In this initial concept, expelled field lines again meet oppositely
directed field lines.and merge again, possibly forcing large amounts of electromagnetic and hydromagnetic radiation outside the craft. This concept is currently
undergoing revision.
FIELD RESONANCE CONCEPT • . .
In the proposed implementation (See Figure 3). high powered lasers are used to generate
the megagauss fields by the effects of non-colinear temperature and density gradients
(Kruer and Estabrook, 19.77; Max et alt , 1978; Nishihara and Ohsawa, 1976). By
alternately pulsing adjacent laser sets, the location of the merging processes can
be made to oscillate back and forth at a desired rate. The amount of laser
energy can be varied to alter the strength of the magnetic fields. Thus by
changing the laser's power and/or wavelength and the pulse frequency, the resultant
magnetic wave form can be changed or tuned to the desired harmonic of a distant spacetime point. If flight to a nearby location is desired, the magnetic wave form can
be continuously re-tuned allowing very quick and short space-time transformations.
For an observer it would appear to be a smooth flight in much the same way that we
do not see the individual frames of a film. For large jumps or travel to very
distant space-time points, some means of preventing the tuning to intermediate
space-time points is required.

The good news is that our Border Terrier survived open surgery to remove his gall-bladder and spleen, and take biopsies from his prostate and liver last Friday. He’s home from the Referral practice at Wetherby with a huge wound from his chest to his scrotum, many stitches (haven’t counted them), and a feeding-tube in his neck that we have to put liquid food into five times a day. His dressing came off today, and he already seems quite a bit more comfortable. And he ate his first solid food this afternoon.

Now the nervous wait for the biopsy results.

Aww, John, that's hard news about your pooch, but it sounds hopeful. Last year at this time my Blue Heeler was getting her stitches out following a pre-xmas surgery that tracked from her abdomen up above the second row of teats. She wore a cone for a couple of weeks and also a t-shirt to help keep her from scratching at itchy stitches (she would stand and lift her back leg to attack the stitches, the cone only kept her face away from them). The vet was delayed returning from an out-of-town trip and we had to accommodate for a second week by keeping her on antibiotics until the stitches were out. I finally said yes to sending in a biopsy sample and it turned out mastitis. Whew. Not cancer. I hope for a similar outcome for your guy.

Thank you very much for your kind words, Maggie - I’ve shown them to Mrs Backwoodsperson and she also sends her thanks.

He’s being a good boy so far as his stitches go, he hasn’t made any attempt to get at them, and we haven’t needed to resort to the cone the vet gave us, nor to the recovery suit (like a doggie-leotard) that the Mrs bought for him. Our main problem is that he’s very reluctant to eat - he has to have five small, low-fat, 76-calorie ‘meals’ per day in order to prevent pancreatitis, and we’re finding it difficult to get him to eat anything like the required amount, which means we have to ‘top him up’ with liquid food through the tube in his neck. Hopefully we’ll get there soon, but it seems a long haul.

Other things, such as carrying him up and down stairs (our house has three storeys, and our living room and kitchen/diner are on the middle floor) to prevent his internal stitches being pulled out, we are coping with pretty easily, but the feeding issue is a worry. And, of course, there will be the biopsy results…

I’m very aware that certain people don’t understand the bond between humans and their dogs, but my wife and I have been unable to have children of our own, and he is our joint-‘significant other’!

Thanks again for your kind words, they are very much appreciated.

Life, ain't it grand even during the most challenging of times?
The biggest and probably the best news will be the discovery of life beyond Earth. We probably are all a bit hopeful that there is otherwise the universe would be a sort of lonely place for us.
Today science has a more agnostic approach to the subject of extraterrestrial life. We accidentally conflate the two separate issues of UFOs and distant life.

Now that we are a bit beyond the giggle factor its time we had better data. It was back in the 1950's that some of the best propositions were made regarding the Fermi paradox and the famous Drake equation that used seven different parameters that could be studied together or independantly. Even the space-time propulsion theory of the seventies has changed little but has identified the trouble spots we can't yet solve.

An alien's best friend could be a dog that resembled goo like its master but totally unlike the internal skeletal structure of somewhat similar animals on Earth, you know, like an octopus but much stranger. If there ever is a first contact we would most likely be grossed out.

I believe challenging theories or even laws to their breaking point does advance the known and unknown even if it seems whacky to do so.

Last fall a friend from the museum where I volunteer lost her cat of more than a dozen years, and was seemingly inconsolable. I remember breaking with the pattern of condolences on her Facebook page and suggesting that there was another cat at the shelter that needed rescuing now, otherwise it might be the needle. She took the bait and has adopted another young cat who has filled the gap that losing the last one created. They love the new one while remembering the past one. The village where I live limits properties to three pets total, and I have consistently had three for the last 20 years. I am hoping that your fella makes a complete recovery, but if you end up with a vacancy in the house, don't put off rescue of another animal. And even with the current dog's recovery, he might like a friend. Every little bit helps when it comes to retrieving animals from the pandemonium of the shelter.

My pooch Pepper (the Blue Heeler) was at the city shelter for three months. When I took her for a one-on-one walk in an enclosure where you can interact with animals I sat on the short wall at the side and she didn't run around, she stayed there and climbed up to sniff my face, get in my lap, and get to know me. She was making the case for a bond, and when I brought her home she settled in so fast and so happily it was remarkable.

When you bring a shelter dog home and give them a soft bed in a quiet house they sleep soundly for the first time in months and it is wonderful to see. The next day I was in the yard with her and the other two and threw a bumper for the chocolate lab to fetch; he headed out for it and then there was a flash of black and white as she darted down the yard, grabbed the bumper and happily returned it to me. "You know this game!" I got another bumper so she and the lab could take turns fetching, and that was that.

There was an occasion when I took her to a vet clinic to have her nails trimmed and was taking the three dogs in one at a time. When I walked away from her at the clinic to take the Lab back to the car apparently she went nuts, pulling out of the muzzle and struggling to get up. As I headed into the store with the third dog the vet tech met me at the door with her, telling me what happened. I realized that this dog, who was about three years old when I adopted her, remembered being left behind before, and was having none of it. I always keep that in mind when she needs any kind of vet care, so she knows I'm nearby. Her heart has been fully given to me and I need to have a care for it. That connection can happen very quickly.

Lovely stories Maggie - you’ve clearly made a buddy for life there. Thanks for your post.

We’re obviously hoping that everything will turn out well for our BT (and us too!) but, should it come to the worst, our plan is to adopt a rescue. There are a couple of good rescue centres in our area, and I’m sure we could find a dog that needs a good, loving home and that we could find that special bond with.

But for now the fight goes on for our boy - he’s beginning to eat, so the need to shoot liquid food in through his O-tube is becoming less and less, his dressing is off and he’s leaving his many stitches alone, and yesterday he actually wanted to play a little, albeit only gently! Our hearts are lifted and we’re encouraged by his progress. Things seem to be on the up and up. Just those damned biopsy results to face in a week or so’s time…

Gallbladder surgery goes deep for us as well as dogs. It entails more healing than most surgeries. If the biopsy shows cancer there is palliative care using steroids and pain pills or curative radiation and drugs similar to human treatments. On the other hand, everything will be fine without cancer concerns, putting an end to worrisome negative thoughts also known as GOOD news.

I used to do a lot of radio. The most call-in participation came from a show where people missed or grieved for their pet. Unqualified love is powerful.

Delighted to report more GOOD news from The Lincolnshire Backwoods - over the weekend, Baxter the BT has been taking his ‘normal’ food (but a low-fat version) very happily, and we have been able to discontinue the feeding of liquid food through the tube in his neck. Still on five feeds per day, but life is much simpler now he’s eating his regular grub.

He’s begun to want to play, although it has to be kept at a fairly ‘quiet’ level - no running, jumping, tugging, etc. so that the risk to his internal stitches is kept to a minimum.

We have an appointment with his local Vet this afternoon, and a call with the surgeon who carried out his surgery this morning, hopefully to discuss the removal of the neck-tube and his external stitches.

Feeling very relieved and much happier than we were at this time last week. Although there’s still the spectre of those biopsy results hanging over us, we’re staying positive and looking forward with optimism.

Dear Backwoodsman. I want to condole with you on your unhappy news regarding your dog. I didn't pick up on his age but I can share that some friends of mine shared the life of their 13 year old black labrador who was a very sagacious and refined animal. I have always liked animals but I was not a 'dog' person until I met Raven. She was walked every day but we didn't notice that she lost all feeling and capability in her tail and we realized we were lucky she could still walk at all. She had no feeling in her after-end and her owner would clean up after her because she was not aware of anything coming out of her rear for her last year. Since we have substantial winters here we would make a judgement call on rounding out the year with her, but she was a loyal family member who kept up her abilities to eat, walk, and interact until one day she woke up and just sat on the coouch and stared blankly. The owners shared her last moments with me and gave away her toys and the ramp that allowed her to get into the car. BUT. Within a month they asked me to drive them out of town where they bought a labradoodle pup. So now I'm a dogfather. The youthful beast is a daily reminder of the energy inherent in the newly created and the innocent nature of animals who draw compassion from those of us who love nature's babies. In this stage of her life she can't tell the difference between uphill and down, and balls that don't belong to her.

I hope you have positive times with your canine and you can all appreciate what we can of life.

That is a different start up from the one at Harvard.
Science has doubled the lifespan of mice so if they have good luck with dogs people might be the next step. Genes have secrets we may not even suspect.

Previous attempts tried changing the endcaps on cells that determine how many times they are instructed to replicate.
Using undiscovered genes that control cell replication with less mutation may be more successful.

I did an essay decades ago about how extended aging therapies would be a privilege of the wealthy that would safeguard their treatments via prohibitive cost.

I don't think that link did what you intended it to do, Don.
The Chiefs may be the more popular bet but the 'niners are favored by 2 at present, not that I bet on anything or am particularly thrilled about the way sports betting is being promoted so heavily.
Taylor could be the savior of our democracy if she delivers the Swifty vote in November. She's got the MAGA world scared shitless, they're devising conspiracy theories, as is the MAGA way, in an attempt to discredit her.

Ah Mrrzy, my husband is ecstatic about Ivory Coast's success so far in the Africa Cup. He ordered a Cote d'Ivoire football top online and it arrived a couple of weeks ago. He's been wearing it to go round all the supermarkets and McDonalds, with no coat over the top, in spite of feeling chilly!
