[Science News] Here’s how the record-breaking government shutdown is disrupting science

Post by RSS Fetch » Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:00 pm

The partial government shutdown is taking many U.S. scientists out of commission and putting up hurdles to their research.

Countless projects researching everything from climate change to pest control to hurricane prediction are on hold.

Maybe humanity will survive the loss of another peer-reviewed article on worm blobs.
People associating freely respect norms of their choice, and relationships governed this way are necessarily interdependent.

More central authorities conquer by dividing, imposing norms channeling the value of synergy toward themselves.

"Every man for himself" is the prescription of a state, not a free community. A state protects the poor from the rich only in fairy tales.

NASA is also going without pay. That means all the lovely people working on all the lovely things lately, from climate studies to the Ultima Thule, are looking for work. :P

You're insinuating that worm blobs are not lovely?

Different strokes for different folks, but no, I'm not insinuating anything about anyone or anywhen I hadn't mentioned in my comments. Rather I'm merely focussing on the lovely things I had labelled.
