  6. I am an audiobook narrator. No, this is not a self-promotion. I just had one of my projects (80 hours of work) pulled from audible because the person putting up the book on acx.com had no right to it. People are stealing books right off Amazon and nobody, I mean this in capitals NOBODY is checking. I spoke with the actual rights holder and he is ready to sue. But acx refuses to speak with him because they half acknowledge the false rights holder because he got in first. They see it as the false rights holder violating their policy, not the law. They are protecting him. I am here t

  11. If you posted an early draft for critique and it was picked up by a pirate. This would be a case that would be hard to prove, since the work didn't have its copyright registered. ( Legally, it's copyrighted after you write it, but registration is part of the publication process.) It's incumbent on you to prove prior authorship, substantial correspondence, and access to your original work. The "unconscious plagiarism" suit against George Harrison is an example. There was substantial correspondence between the melodies of "My Sweet Lord" and "He's So Fine." The latter had

  13. I was having a really good day yesterday until I got to work. Nothing seemed to go my way and I became frustrated very quickly. The frustration built up as things continued to go wrong until I became aggressive and was slinging stuff around. I calmed down and decided that I was not going to let the things that were bothering me ruin my night. So, I decided to be thankful - thankful that I was actually still able to work, and thankful that I still had a job to provide for my family during this Covid pandemic. When I got home this morning, I was reading a little bit (af

  16. I was moved by your article, Alley. When my children were young, they played basketball in the back yard. My son mistook the smooth sided white orb cemented between the shrubs as their ball, striking it with his hand (obviously not too hard). It was, in fact a wasp nest equal in size. A few emerged, sounding the alarm for backup. The inhabitants fled after I blasted it liberally with the garden hose, and no one was stung. I suppose they thought the deluge was a natural phenomenon. Later, it fell to the ground, the paper layers collapsed within themselves.

  18. For amino acids which you'll need for life, or most biological materials for that matter, you'll primarily want Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Nitrogen, sometimes grouped together as CHON. Since water gives a lot of what you're after, you might save transportation costs on the rest by transporting the carbon & nitrogen as the gas cyanogen, all carbon and nitrogen, which can be frozen at easily workable temperatures. A big handling problem is that the stuff is deadly in this form (essentially, it's two cyanide radicals glommed together...) Yet this saves the cost of transporting the

  20. My understanding of the Nitrogen Cycle is that Nitrogen is used for amino acids and DNA as well, but it's been a while since I really brushed up on my biology. At any rate Methane is super critical as well.

  21. Methane might be better because it also helps produce the amino acids needed for life. I can't quickly find a use for Nitrogen other than fertilizer, so some will be needed depending on the terraforming process. Unfortunately I don't have a good general understanding of that at this time to go farther than that.

  22. If I understand it right, nitrogen is converted by plants from its gaseous state to ammonia which is used as food. It also acts as a diluter to keep the oxygen from igniting. I was going to use it for these reasons while another species supplied the water-based and land-based plants to create the oxygen. I would also need a minimal amount of it hauled from off-world since plants do need a slight amount for their processes. I may just turn to methane collection as certain gas giants have this as well and use it to heat the planet as a greenhouse gas. The problem with this is it’s harder t

  24. You did! Spoken with respect and admiration! We serve the God of AND! From what I know, after reading The Case for Creation by Lee Stroebel and watching the Elegant Universe by Brian Greene (he is not a believer and all the time, to me he seems to be hitting his head against a glass wall that if he looked closely, he'd see God pressed up close against.), we don't limit God if we say we are alone and we don't limit God if we say we have company. From a friend's experience, I believe God does not like to repeat Himself. Each individual creature He makes, down to ea

  25. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. [ Matthew 24:43‭-‬44 ] “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that
