Coronacrisis, why meat consumption is the cause of the coronavirus 

Armanda Govers / OneWorld: *Why are we fighting corona without discussing the cause?*

"Governments worldwide are taking drastic measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Meanwhile, there is a clear way to tackle the source of many of these infectious diseases, says Armanda Govers. Namely: stop eating animals."


"In China, after the coronavirus outbreak, the trade and consumption of wild animals was banned. The source of the corona outbreak appears to be the Wuhan market, a fish market where other wild animals – dead and alive – were sold and slaughtered for consumption. The outbreak is reminiscent of the 2003 SARS epidemic, which also originated in a market where wild animals were slaughtered and traded. Many wild animal species are bred for consumption in China, as is the case with chickens, pigs and cows. Meanwhile, about twenty thousand wild animal farms have been shut down. …"

Feeling Trapped? Try Being a Dolphin at SeaWorld

"Venting", as in complaining, is just letting off emotional steam, and healthy, right?

"Artificial intelligence yields drug that halts antibiotic-resistant bacteria

A new deep learning algorithm helped researchers identify a powerful new antibiotic compound that kills many of the world's most problematic, disease-causing bacterias, including those which have so far been resistant to common antibiotics."

Great news, as #animalagriculture's systematic use of antibiotics is taking the world closer to a pre-penicillin catastrophic scenario every day. 80% of #antibiotics are used on #animals that are unnecessarily killed and eaten by humans and this regular ingestion of antibiotics is causing dangerous antibiotics resistance in bacteries

Probably the biggest things I've learnt by using linux and bsd are to have patience and to read manuals/documentation.
