I hope someday to see this for Safe too
Nearly 21,000 monitored populations of mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians, encompassing almost 4,400 species around the world, have declined an average of 68% between 1970 and 2016.

This is a massive stain on humankind. To see nature as a show we watch is insane, we are nature and we are killing ourselves and our home. It really is beyond any reason at all now.
COPA operates on the principle that open access to patents covering foundational cryptocurrency technologies is necessary for the community to grow, freely innovate, and build new and better products.
World is always changing. Some species will extinguish, some will be established. This was always true.
Btw. web is panda.org - so iconic symbol… Animal eating just leaves of one tree. I wonder why this one is still existing. On the other hand, its very nice looking animal for sure.
Given the exponential rise in the human population and the resources needed to maintain it, I don’t think this is entirely surprising.
While being more at one with nature would certainly help, I’m not sure it will secure the future for all wildlife. The best chance may be for humanity to develop cleaner technology, which allows Earth’s burgeoning population to do more with less.
Population is out of balance with resources. The current assumptions about perpetual growth have not made sense for a while.
Too many people are cavalier about consequences… and too selfish to care about the impact their actions have. Given the environment is chocking on conservative stupidity the world over, it’s likely events with force change… but that is a rougher ride for all. Mankind has opportunity to think and avoid worst case scenarios…
It survives because humans have singled it out for special treatment - because it’s cute - while causing the extinction of millions of other species. Those species are not cute but essential, so our cultural judgements about things are like many of our evolutionary traits, leading us down a dangerous path because we’re not clever enough to see ourselves as we are in the bigger picture or the long term. However, we may still be able to launch the next stage of evolution, or we may give way as the dinosaurs did when they faced something too devastating to survive.
Blimey, UK government doing something right.
UK Parliament Ontologies:
UK Parliament != UK Government though, right?
Apparently this was mooted a few months ago and then walked back after the reaction, but it’s back:
Not news from today but I found out about it today so will put it in this topic
“The easy part is buying the body cameras and issuing them to the officers. They are not that expensive,” Jim Pasco, executive director at the National Fraternal Order of Police, told the Post. “But storing all the data that they collect — that cost is extraordinary. The smaller the department, the tougher it tends to be for them.”

More confusion possibly…
From the article:
In the years ahead, trillions of computers running AI will create a new internet-of-things that is thousands of times larger than today’s internet-of-people.
Trillions of computers… with 100 nodes per section that’s at least 10B sections. Section prefix length of 33 bits or more is where we’re heading…? It’d be a big network that’s for sure.
Nice SafeNetwork usecase.
