It’s Not Rocket Science

It’s not rocket science: we only have one planet. Let’s care for what remains – the people animals and plants on it – the best we can. Writer standing in solidarity with Joni Mitchell & Neil Young – people with lifelong records of standing up for people & the planet – against media giant Spotify who have been allowing toxic self-harm Q-Anon-type disinformation to spout from their giant mouthpiece. I liked the music but have cancelled my Spotify account and will try out MusicYouTube instead.

Killing Eve Lesfic Venus Author Celebrates Jupiter and Saturn Winter Solstice. “Jupiter – Saturn Made Easy pt2.”

Jupiter with Red Spot and auroras – Hubble Space Telescope (optical combined with UV)

Jupiter is truly massive! More than a tenth the diameter of the Sun, and more than 11 times the diameter of Earth. Despite being the largest of the “gas giant” planets, it is 320 times heavier than Earth. The Earth’s orbit in the Solar System is influenced by the gravitational pull of both Jupiter and Saturn.

Jupiter is the fastest planet! A Jovian day lasts only 10 hours. This rapid spinning of its atmosphere creates huge magnetic and radiation fields. As well as the famous Red Spot – a persistent anticyclonic storm, 15,000 miles across.

Jupiter has 67 named moons. The largest four were identified by the famous astrologer and astronomer Galileo Galilei in 1610. They are sometimes visible even with binoculars, and are called Io, Europa, Callisto, and Ganymede.

Ganymede is the largest satellite in our solar system. It is larger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars.

The sunlight reflected from Saturn travels over a billion miles back to reach us on Earth, with a roundtrip time — at light speed — of three hours. At the moment of exactitude at 6pm Monday evening (London time), Jupiter will be less than one tenth of a degree away from Saturn. That’s from our sight line. The two giants of the solar system will remain nearly a billion kilometers apart from each other, Jupiter orbiting currently at about half the distance away of Saturn.

Fur Trade Comes Back to Bite Us. EU Mink Farms Spread Dangerous Mutant Covid Back To Humans.

The cruel industry of fur farming was banned in the UK twenty years ago. Many actors, celebrities, and ordinary people support action against the fur trade. Don’t buy or wear animal fur – don’t have blood on your back!

Northern Denmark is being sealed off, and the Danish government has asked its citizens “not to leave their area,” as it orders 17 million minks in fur farms to be slaughtered. The UK has introduced two weeks’ quarantine on anyone arriving from Denmark.

What’s the problem?
Despite denials from the same so-called expert scientists who failed to warn governments of the imminent dangers of a SARS-2 virus pandemic sweeping through the human race – seven new Mutant Covid Viruses have arisen in fur farms in western Europe, and spread back to humans.
“One of these viruses has four mutations in its spike protein and in laboratory tests has been found to be more weakly inhibited by antibodies from humans who have been infected with Sars-CoV-2.” (The Guardian 5 November 2020)

Denmark is now slaughtering all of its 17 million fur-trade mink – as several dozen cases of the Mutant Covid Virus has been found in humans. The Mutant Covid Virus has also been found on fur farms in Holland and Spain.

For gripping, empowering, animal-friendly action order Aphrodite’s Kiss by Raechel Sands in Kindle or Paperback for Christmas. “Aphrodite, Helen of Troy, the first woman in space, and two women spies at MI6. Will they, won’t they? Surreal dark humour whodunit. Or, more precisely, who done what, to whom?”

Slaughter of the Innocents. Srebrenica Genocide 25 – an Open Wound on 1990s Europe. ‘Behind Blue’ by Raechel Sands Lesfic Thriller Heroine Born During Bosnian War.

Slaughter of the Innocents. Bosnian women are separated from their husbands and sons – who are selected for execution by ‘the butcher of Bosnia,’ Ratko Mladić. The selections took place right under the eyes of the press, and the very UN troops sworn to protect the civilians.

Remembering the tens of thousands of victims of genocide in Bosnia; and standing in solidarity with the Mars Mira walkers who each year commemorate the attempted escape of thousands of civilians from the massacres.

Genocide in Europe — only 1,200 miles from London — took place in the 1990s when heavily-armed Serbian militia, led by convicted-war-criminal Ratko Mladić, massacred 9,000 unarmed Muslim children and men at Srebrenica, Bosnia, on 11th July 1995.

Last year, the Dutch Supreme Court upheld a ruling that the Netherlands was partially responsible for the Srebrenica genocide because a company of Dutch troops ejected 500 of the victims from a UN Forces compound – into the hands of Serbian militia intent on murdering them.

Srebrenica was an official UN safe haven for tens of thousands of unarmed civilians trying to escape from waves of ethnic cleaning being carried out by Serb militia and paramilitaries. Despite this, the UN failed to protect the boys and men who were selected by right wing General Ratko Mladić and his officers for mass executions.
In scenes more reminiscent of 1945 Nazi death camps than 1995 Europe, the boys and men were taken to isolated forests and warehouses where they were systematically murdered over a four day period.
Many thousands of girl and women civilians were subjected to rape and sexual assault by the Serb militias. And there are hundreds of verified recorded cases of babies being murdered, and even of foetuses being cut out from pregnant women.

Ratko Mladić is serving consecutive life sentences in prison in The Hague for 10 murder charges including genocide, and ethnic cleansing. In the same way as Holocaust Denial, genocide denial about the massacre has seeped into mainstream culture due to fake news and far-right propaganda
