Freshwater Wildlife Continues To Decline But New Energy Trendlines Suggest We Can Bend That Curve

Last month I wrote about the 86% decline in populations of migratory fish since 1970. Turns out that was just a trailer for the feature film.

In September, WWF released its Living Planet Report, which includes the grim statistic that essentially all vertebrate species that depend on freshwater ecosystems are following the same precipitous plunge as migratory fish.

How the world developed its energy systems, particularly hydropower dams that fragmented rivers, is one of the primary reasons for this dramatically dropping trendline. 

How the world designs, builds and operates its future energy systems will be key to halting, and ultimately reversing that trendline.

The current decline in freshwater populations is tracked by the “Living Planet Index” (LPI), which provides insights into the health of global wildlife, much like an index fund provides insights into the health of financial markets. And just as an index fund reflects the prices

Udonis Haslem is honest about it: Elections simply have not been overly important to him.

That is, until now.

He’s been a registered voter since 2004, so it’s not like he’s been unaware of the process or how it works. But it’s also been far from a passion project for Haslem, the Miami Heat forward who serves as a team captain and tries to set an example for every other player in the locker room. So, this year, that meant getting involved in the election process.

“Growing up in my household, voting was never a conversation,” Haslem said. “Voting was never a conversation when I went

With Pixel 5, Google continues its fight for smartphone relevance

In 2016, Google’s newly appointed hardware chief, Rick Osterloh, stood on a stage in San Francisco and unveiled a product that many people in the industry never thought would come: a Google-branded phone.

For years, a “GPhone” to compete with the iPhone had been a mythic prospect — a device that Android fanboys believed could properly take on Apple’s smartphone. The Pixel, with its premium build and high-end price tag, seemed primed to contend. It was glossy and chic, even drawing comparisons to the iPhone’s appearance. It had a remarkable camera with advanced photography software. But it entered a market already dominated by the likes of Apple and Samsung, two of the most popular phone makers in the world.

4 Stocks to Buy if the Stock Market Tech Wreck Continues

This has been a history-making year in more ways than one. The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic initially clobbered equities and sent them into a first-quarter tailspin. The 34% the benchmark S&P 500 lost in under five weeks represents the quickest bear market decline of at least 30% in history.

Following this historic plunge, investors saw the S&P 500 recoup everything that was initially lost (and then some) in a roughly five-month rally. This marked the quickest recovery on record from a bear market bottom to fresh highs.

Now history appears to be repeating itself. You see, over the past eight bear markets dating back to 1960, there have been a grand total of 13 corrections ranging between 10% and 19.9% within three years. This is to say that bear market bounces don’t simply go straight up. Every bounce inevitably leads to one or two sizable corrections.

ECMO outcomes study at experienced centers suggests key role for treating worst-hit patients as pandemic continues — ScienceDaily

It saved lives in past epidemics of lung-damaging viruses. Now, the life-support option known as ECMO appears to be doing the same for many of the critically ill COVID-19 patients who receive it, according to a new international study.

The 1,035 patients in the study faced a staggeringly high risk of death, as ventilators and other care failed to support their lungs. But after they were placed on ECMO, their actual death rate was less than 40%. That’s similar to the rate for patients treated with ECMO in past outbreaks of lung-damaging viruses, and other severe forms of viral pneumonia.

The new study published in The Lancet provides strong support for the use of ECMO — short for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation — in appropriate patients as the pandemic rages on worldwide.

It may help more hospitals that have ECMO capability understand which of their COVID-19 patients might benefit from the
