Reblog: Free Press Journal: Indore scientists back algae drug to combat COVID-19.

Here's an inspiring article hailing some recent scientific findings pertaining to the study of algae as an antiviral, with potential to combat COVID-19, produced from a research establishment from central India: Combatting viruses is a classic medical and scientific endeavor: as the economics of price elasticity of a viable cure, or preventative measure, for an illness such that is classified as a virus, some things come in to play:  Viruses, in a most basic sense, are living organisms that have evolved in superiority over adversity in lower animal kingdom etymologies'  battles of the consecration and consumption of filthy refuse, diseased and decaying organic matter (death, and disease, itself), and that it had found opportunistic gains in procuring prolific and robust numbers in autonomous host environments, whereas, in many cases, the human hand, of evil intention, as only humans have

Update on the red algae blooms growth: a lively well-formed bloom.

It's been a few days since I "planted" this algae nursery, from out in Malibu and Topanga Beach, so I figured that itwas time to check on the progress of the algae. The water was quite warm; a promising sign that good biological processes were at hand. Here's my prize piece that I found, near the top of the plastic jug. It appears to havea richly diverse set of presentments and flourishes of Floridian-type leaflets, as well as some larger juicier structures, as well as node-like cells of what could be fibrous protein establishments on the algae.

From Twitter: @nybooks - some timely reviews of algae-related literature, and some anecdotes on life, given algae.

A nice, moderately quick read about some algae anecdote and book reviews.

Google Scholar - the often-overlooked resource of rich academic and industry journal intelligence.

Okay, so the following rich text copy and paste doesn’t come out so well, but you get the idea. It’s Google Search, for scholarly activities .

A rumination upon the prevailing inspirational purpose of my establishment - to harness the inherent potassium iodide constituent product of seaweed and algae for its acute radiation overdose potential, with the aim of producing a viable [at first] short-term antibiotic product, through ionic mineral infusions and nutritive | nurturing environment farming techniques of imbuing the tap | freshwater growing medium with supplements and additives, in order to produce a breakthrough growth spurt or stark biological reaction to such a growing medium; wherefore we find, as beach goers, the washed-up algae upon the shores, and rolling inland, amongst the waves, the true virtuous natural environment of algae is diverse, yet similarly highly dependent upon nutrients of the deep sea ocean floor, where the organisms grow (albeit, their growing medium and sustainable livelihoods are diverse, as stated previously; some of the specimens I’ve procured, here, in Southern California, from the Pacific Oc

The [white] algae project - producing accelerated GMO Floridian coralline strains of beneficial algae on ocean fauna using ionic mineral-infused water.

An ad-hoc project, as it begins, as I’m new to this. First, an assay of my gathered ocean fauna, in photos.  I’m hoping that the slightly greener tinge of this kelp is a signal of that it has some life in it, yet.  I’m particularly interested in this reddish Florid algae, as it’s complex strands and coralline tendrils suggest a more complex organism. I find that it’s perhaps an ad-hoc growth or attachment (or entanglement, amidst it’s journey to the shore). A strand of kelp. Some promising whitish tendrils, suggestive of new root growth, on the grassy algae-forma.  The tuberous rooting-form of the sea-berry (as I’ll call them, for now). There are hints of reddish growth on this tuber, and some nascent suggestions of perhaps that the specimen has taken root, in the water. The Florid red algae, amidst the grassy algae. A large leaf of kelp. A strand of sea-berries. I’m wondering if the blackened color of the specimens is due to a magnetic effect upon the ionic iron, in gathering iron fro

I’m a fan of tar. Some notable global [internet] destinations and products available pertaining to tar and resins production and research investigation.

I’m here and there drawn towards tar products, for their rich and flavorful scents. In our American youth (of this, and perhaps of leading-up generations), a propagandistic counter-intelligence slütel of a capricious hooker house made it’s bwopp couch-fuckin’ sprawl out upon our minds of that “tar” in cigarettes was some sort of negative connotation, against an assertion of that tobacco was being portrayed as pleasurable and sociable. These days, cigarette advertisements don’t seem all that common, and the Ad Council (or some sort of agency such as that), portrays a similar rebuke upon flavored tobacco and e-cigs; it’s a bit troubling to stomach, as an adult that I am, versus of that I had been introduced to tobacco use as an abuse victim, of a too-early age (according to the law), whereas I feel that I would have been statistically most likely to have achieved and excelled better, had I not been abused in that manner. The underlying psychology surrounding the circumstances is chronica
