Take care of your thoughts when you are alone

This week, I noticed a disturbing status update. I did not immediately know how to respond. Several hours later, I noticed an (unknown) quote, which I sent to her: "Take care of your thoughts when you are alone, and take care of your words when you are with people."

Could the blueprint for life have been generated in asteroids? (Phys)

Introduction by LO: The origin of Life is a mystery despite millennia of human knowledge. This article gives a fresh perspective. Astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle (1915-2001) did not believe in the Big Bang although inventing this term on BBC radio himself. He believed in a hypothesis called panspermia (eg, my blogs) as the origin of Life on Earth. Panspermia is the...
