NY bans #fracking #nyc #watersecurity

In making what amounted to his first major decision since his re-election last month, Mr. Cuomo embraced the conclusion of state health officials that important health issues remain unresolved and that it was impossible to declare that hydraulic fracturing is safe for the environment or human health.

Everyday usefulness of infinite dimensions

A vacuum has nothing but dimension. 

You might imagine, beyond Earth, places which are absent any matter, and likely you also imagine some boundaries of those places.

In the lab, you may see a vacuum flask, with nothing in it. Nonetheless you may describe its boundaries.

What is which lacks dimension? 

Even your single thought - whatever its nature - must have more substance than that which is without dimension. Therefore, your each thought has physical dimension.

An absence of dimension is the inverse of the universe.

That is not a black hole, but the concept may serve our understanding of those phenomena.

All the foregoing is product of imagination. It is useful narrative, a line of thought, thereby dimensional.

A dimension must have objective quality - that is, referable by all - and a dimension must have subjective usefulness, so that it is of service to human beings. You can readily see that with height, width, depth.

I plan to remain that way

Comedian Stella Young and staunch disability advocate, before her death this week, after the recent death of a friend who was likened to a snowflake on social media.
