Antheraea polyphemus

This guy (the males have bushier antennae to pick up pheromones) looked like a goner but was still able to manage the occasional flap.

"Of the 118 elements that make up everything—from the compounds in a chemists arsenal to consumer products on the shelf—44 will face supply limitations in the coming years. These critical elements include rare earth elements, precious metals, and even life essentials like Phosphorus. Research into more abundant alternatives, more efficient uses, recycling and recovery will help mitigate risks and move industry us towards sustainable supply chains." Via.

A while back Clear Science used the example of tellurium (Te, element 52) to illustrate how obtaining enough of a specific material can be challenging.

I was just telling someone today how a great untapped source of phosphorus is our own urine.

Come make some noise with us! (Sheet music and MIDI file in the link.)

Damn it all I miss this by ONE DAY. That said, I’m thrilled to be making music in Brooklyn and Manhattan the two preceding days.

Hiking - I don’t like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not hike! Do you know the origin of that word ‘saunter?’ It’s a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, “A la sainte terre,’ ‘To the Holy Land.’ And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not ‘hike’ through them.

John Muir (via debbie-thornberry)

John Muir hiked/traveled through Savannah ("Camping Among the Tombs") before he went west for the trip that would make him most famous. Certainly, he must have experienced the chaffing.

In Savannah, too, we saunter. It’s too hot to hike.

(via semperidem)

Reblogged because doing some sauntering in the Grand Tetons in two months and need to recall this then.

So we mustn’t run out of steam. Sometimes young women think ‘Dammnnn, I’ve been doing this nine years and I don’t think anything has budged.’ But keep plugging away. Nothing succeeds like success. Get a little success and then just get a little more.
