The Bible's Noah's ARK and the Global SEED Vault...!




 






Svalbard Global Seed Vault

Welcome to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault

VEGETATIVE REPRODUCTION is not by seed or spores, but by the formation of miniaturized plants called plantlets on specialized leaves (for example in kalanchoe) and some produce new plants out of rhizomes or stolon (for example in strawberry). Other plants reproduce by forming bulbs or tubers (for example tulip bulbs and dahlia tubers). Some plants produce adventitious shoots and suckers that form along their lateral roots...!!![NEED OF PRIOR ORIGIN or means to be if not PRESERVED...!!!]
Way up north, in the permafrost, 1300 kilometers beyond the Arctic Circle, is the world's largest secure seed storage, opened by the Norwegian Government in February 2008. From all across the globe, crates of seeds are sent here for safe and secure long-term storage in cold and dry rock vaults.

------------------

A global backstop


The vault hold the seeds of many tens of thousands of varieties of essential food crops such as beans, wheat and rice. In total, the vault now holds seeds of more than 4000 plant species. These seed samples are duplicates of seed sample stores in national, regional and international gene banks.

The building is designed for virtually infinite lifetime. By building the vault 130 meters into the rock and 130 meters above sea level the facility is robustly secured against external hazards and climate change effects.

----------------

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault (Norwegian: Svalbard globale frøhvelv) is a secure seed bank on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near Longyearbyen in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago, about 1,300 kilometres (810 mi) from the North Pole.[4] Conservationist Cary Fowler, in association with the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR),[5] started the vault to preserve a wide variety of plant seeds that are duplicate samples, or "spare" copies, of seeds held in gene banks worldwide. The seed vault is an attempt to insure against the loss of seeds in other genebanks during large-scale regional or global crises. The seed vault is managed under terms spelled out in a tripartite agreement between the Norwegian government, the Global Crop Diversity Trust (GCDT) and the Nordic Genetic Resource Center (NordGen).[6]

The Norwegian government entirely funded the vault's approximately NOK 45 million (US$9 million) construction.[7] Storing seeds in the vault is free to end users, with Norway and the Global Crop Diversity Trust paying for operational costs. Primary funding for the Trust comes from such organisations as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and from various governments worldwide.[8]

----------------

Plants, also called green plants (Viridiplantae in Latin), are multicellular eukaryotes of the kingdom Plantae. They form a clade that includes the flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms, ferns, clubmosses, hornworts, liverworts, mosses and the green algae. Plants exclude the red and brown algae, animals, the fungi, archaea and bacteria.

Green plants have cell walls with cellulose and characteristically obtain most of their energy from sunlight via photosynthesis by primary chloroplasts, derived from endosymbiosis with cyanobacteria. Their chloroplasts contain chlorophylls a and b which gives them their green color. Some plants are parasitic and have lost the ability to produce normal amounts of chlorophyll or to photosynthesize. Plants are also characterized by sexual reproduction, modular and indeterminate growth, and an alternation of generations, although asexual reproduction is common.

Precise numbers are difficult to determine, but as of 2010, there are thought to be 300–315 thousand species of plants, of which the great majority, some 260–290 thousand, are seed plants (see the table below).[1] Green plants provide most of the world's molecular oxygen[2] and are the basis of most of the earth's ecologies, especially on land. Plants that produce grains, fruits and vegetables form mankind's basic foodstuffs, and have been domesticated for millennia. Plants are used as ornaments and, until recently and in great variety, they have served as the source of most medicines and drugs. The scientific study of plants is known as botany, a branch of biology.

----------------

Vegetative reproduction is a type of asexual reproduction found in plants where new individuals are formed without the production of seeds or spores by meiosis or syngamy.[12] Examples of vegetative reproduction include the formation of miniaturized plants called plantlets on specialized leaves (for example in kalanchoe) and some produce new plants out of rhizomes or stolon (for example in strawberry). Other plants reproduce by forming bulbs or tubers (for example tulip bulbs and dahlia tubers). Some plants produce adventitious shoots and suckers that form along their lateral roots. Plants that reproduce vegetatively may form a clonal colony, where all the individuals are clones, and the clones may cover a large area.[13]

Vegetative reproduction (vegetative propagation, vegetative multiplication, vegetative cloning) is a form of asexual reproduction in plants. It is a process by which new organisms arise without production of seeds or spores.[citation needed] It can occur naturally or be induced by horticulturists.

Although most plants normally reproduce sexually, many have the ability for vegetative propagation, or can be vegetatively propagated if small pieces are subjected to chemical (hormonal) treatments. This is because meristematic cells capable of cellular differentiation are present in many plant tissues. Horticulturalists are interested in understanding how meristematic cells can be induced to reproduce an entire plant.

Success rates and difficulty of propagation vary greatly. For example willow and coleus can be propagated merely by inserting a stem in water or moist soil. On the other hand, monocotyledons, unlike dicotyledons, typically lack a vascular cambium and therefore are harder to propagate.

CASHEW ORIGINS [S. America !]


Dispersal

While the cashew plant is native to northeast Brazil, the Portuguese took it to Goa, India, between 1560 and 1565. From there it spread throughout Southeast Asia and eventually Africa.[5]

----------------

CORN [Americas-Mexico]


Maize (/ˈmeɪz/ MAYZ; Zea mays subsp. mays, from Spanish: maíz after Taíno mahiz), known in some English-speaking countries as corn, is a large grain plant domesticated by indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica in prehistoric times. The leafy stalk produces ears which contain the grain, which are seeds called kernels. Maize kernels are often used in cooking as a starch. The six major types of maize are dent, flint, pod, popcorn, flour, and sweet.[1]

...300,000 to 315,000 thousand species of plants, of which 260,000-290,000 are seed plants! AND NOT ALL ARE USED FOR FOOD...! AND SOME ARE POISONOUS...! AND SOME REPRODUCE ASEXUALLY VEGETATIVELY, LIKE TULIPS, etc...!!!

...THEY COULD NOT FIT IN THE ARK OF NOAH FOR ONE/UNO[1] YEAR...! They all could not survive under water and salt for all this time...!
AND THE GOD OF THE BIBLE DOES NOT CALL TO COLLECT ANY TREES OR SEEDS FOR THE ARK...???

...only a technicality for the Bible and Christians...! IT WAS NOT MENTIONED, THAT GOD WOULD "SUPPLY" and make plants again...! Much less feed them for one(1)(uno) year in the ARK...!

NOW...! TO GET TO THE AMERICAS TREES ONLY FOUND ORIGINALLY IN THESE PARTS, LIKE CORN, BRAZIL NUTS CASHEWS, ETC... ALL THE WAY FROM MOUNT ARARAT, IS MORE THAN A CONUNDRUM...! OR FROM AFRICA WHERE EVOLUTION STATES HUMANOID'S AND HUMANS DEVELOPED FROM...!

REASONS FOR FLIGHT IN EVOLUTION...!!!

The Flight Debate


A debate that has continued since the 1880s concerns the question of whether flight developed from the ground up (did flight evolve from a bipedal, cursorial, ground-dwelling ancestor?) or from the trees down (did flight evolve from a semi-bipedal, arboreal, leaping and gliding ancestor?). This debate will no doubt continue, however, it is a pointless debate, as neither hypothesis is testable. The important question is, how did the flight stroke evolve?

Why Did Flight Evolve?: Several Main Hypotheses


    To help escape from predators

    To help catch flying or speedy prey

    To help move from place to place (leaping or gliding)

    To free the hindlegs for use as weapons

    To gain access to new food sources or an unoccupied niche


These hypotheses also cannot be tested directly. They are interesting ideas, and some may even be right. But we really can't conceive of finding real evidence that will decide the plausibility of these hypotheses.

Flight Origins: Summation


The problem is not whether flight evolved on the ground or in the trees, but how the flight stroke evolved. Without this stroke, you can't fly. So, we study this question by a series of steps. We define what flight is; that is, what features you need to fly. Then, using a cladogram of the flying animals and their closest relatives, we analyze the sequence of assembly of these features, and then infer what these structures were doing when they first evolved.

[[["...
While it is still unclear whether modern bats arose rapidly or gradually from their quadrupedal ancestor, it does seem certain that their evolution required many molecular changes to dramatically alter morphology from a limb to a wing. One might argue that a small and transient increase in the length of limb bones is not striking, but this is taken out of the greater context of evolution over millions of years. While on its own this specific modification to the Prx1 enhancer would not have had a dramatic effect in a more mouse-like quadrupedal ancestor, it likely contributed significantly to morphological divergence in combination with other molecular changes. Future work to identify more of these molecular changes combined with filling gaps in the fossil record will likely unravel the complicated cause and effect of bat evolution and indicate how these molecular changes may have given rise to morphological adaptation that drove bat wing evolution.

...THE SAME or similar to a flapping Elephant Ear, it takes more than having some kind of wings to fly...! ...there is all the necessary aerodynamics to develop/design/"self-design"...!

...the more complex wings are in the small insect World with up to 4 wings to "MANAGE"...!

...ANYWAY FOLKS, IN SCIENCE YOU CAN ALSO IMAGINE THINGS AND EVEN PROVE THEM...! It is all a matter of the dumb persons that are doing the "Science"...! HUMANS BARELY STARTED MAKING PLANES IN 1903...!


...REALLY there are no reasons in pure logic for birds or flying...! you can hit the ground too hard or kill yourself...!!! YOU SEE INSECTS ARE SMALL ENOUGH TO NOT REALLY HURT THEMSELVES FLYING...!

Or they would not permit anybody or permit the few ones that do. But would war USA to not not have one!

BUT HEY! USA and the good World is controlling these ancient dinosaurs of Iranian Ayatollah's....!

Iran must be evil and insane to some degree...!

Why want to destroy a country and people like ISRAEL?

Palestinians is not a good enough reason to war the Jews!

...in pure logic, we find it very difficult and complex, for usage needs to make develop "long necks" of giraffes, or much anything else...! as the "gap not bridged" from the need of a long neck because of lack of food, to developing the means for reaching up to high trees, is to big to bridge, meaning the death of all the middle missing links, before any success...! ...if there was food for the middle missing link beings, then why grow such a long neck? there would not be a foreseeing process...!

...but surely the "lack of use" makes things of beings have their inherent problems...!

...but Science Evolution swears they are the only accepted and proven knowledge for Origins of beings and much anything else!

Revelation 13:

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea,
and saw a beast rise up out of the sea,
having seven heads and ten horns,
and upon his horns ten crowns,
and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto
a leopard, and his feet were as the feet
of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of
a lion: and the dragon gave him his power,
and his seat, and great authority.

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were
wounded to death; and his deadly wound
was healed: and all the world wondered
after the beast.

4 And they worshipped the dragon which
gave power unto the beast: and they
worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like
unto the beast? who is able to make war
with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth
speaking great things and blasphemies; and
power was given unto him to continue forty
and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy
against God, to blaspheme his name, and
his tabernacle, and them that dwell in
heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war
with the saints, and to overcome them: and
power was given him over all kindreds, and
tongues, and nations.

8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall
worship him, whose names are not written
in the book of life of the Lamb slain from
the foundation of the world.

9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go
into captivity: he that killeth with the
sword must be killed with the sword. Here
is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out
of the earth; and he had two horns like a
lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the
first beast before him, and causeth the
earth and them which dwell therein to
worship the first beast, whose deadly wound
was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he
maketh fire come down from heaven on the
earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the
earth by the means of those miracles which
he had power to do in the sight of the
beast; saying to them that dwell on the
earth, that they should make an image to
the beast, which had the wound by a sword,
and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the
image of the beast, that the image of the
beast should both speak, and cause that as
many as would not worship the image of the
beast should be killed.


16 And he causeth all, both small and great,
rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a
mark in their right hand, or in their
foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save
he that had the mark, or the name of the
beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath
understanding count the number of the beast:
for it is the number of a man; and his number
is Six hundred threescore and six.

...we have reached a final Science problem of many, and for pure logic, that is not any problem for all mighty Jehova/Jesus christians...!

EVOLUTION and Aesthetics(Esthetics)...!






Human figure [Aethetics]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aesthetics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_figure_%28aesthetics%29
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio
http://www.goldennumber.net/beauty/


[[["...
Aesthetics (/ɛsˈθɛtɪks/; also spelled æsthetics and esthetics also known in Greek as Αισθητική) is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of art, beauty, and taste, with the creation and appreciation of beauty.[1][2] It is more scientifically defined as the study of sensory or sensori-emotional values, sometimes called judgments of sentiment and taste.[3] More broadly, scholars in the field define aesthetics as "critical reflection on art, culture and nature."[4][5]

More specific aesthetic theory, often with practical implications, relating to a particular branch of the arts is divided into areas of aesthetics such as art theory, literary theory, film theory and music theory. An example from art theory is aesthetic theory as a set of principles underlying the work of a particular artist or artistic movement: such as the Cubist aesthetic.[6]

In the 1990s, Jürgen Schmidhuber described an algorithmic theory of beauty which takes the subjectivity of the observer into account and postulates: among several observations classified as comparable by a given subjective observer, the aesthetically most pleasing one is the one with the shortest description, given the observer's previous knowledge and his particular method for encoding the data.[40][41] This is closely related to the principles of algorithmic information theory and minimum description length. One of his examples: mathematicians enjoy simple proofs with a short description in their formal language. Another very concrete example describes an aesthetically pleasing human face whose proportions can be described by very few bits of information,[42][43] drawing inspiration from less detailed 15th century proportion studies by Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer. Schmidhuber's theory explicitly distinguishes between what's beautiful and what's interesting, stating that interestingness corresponds to the first derivative of subjectively perceived beauty.

Mathematical considerations, such as symmetry and complexity, are used for analysis in theoretical aesthetics. This is different from the aesthetic considerations of applied aesthetics used in the study of mathematical beauty. Aesthetic considerations such as symmetry and simplicity are used in areas of philosophy, such as ethics and theoretical physics and cosmology to define truth, outside of empirical considerations. Beauty and Truth have been argued to be nearly synonymous,[48] as reflected in the statement "Beauty is truth, truth beauty" in the poem Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats, or by the Hindu motto "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" (Satya (Truth) is Shiva (God), and Shiva is Sundaram (Beautiful)). The fact that judgments of beauty and judgments of truth both are influenced by processing fluency, which is the ease with which information can be processed, has been presented as an explanation for why beauty is sometimes equated with truth.[49] Indeed, recent research found that people use beauty as an indication for truth in mathematical pattern tasks.[50] However, scientists including the mathematician David Orrell[51] and physicist Marcelo Gleiser[52] have argued that the emphasis on aesthetic criteria such as symmetry is equally capable of leading scientists astray.

PlaNYC is the sustainability and resiliency blueprint for New York City. Together with our collaborators – the agencies, organizations, and New Yorkers who make this plan a reality – we have made significant progress in just a few years:

    The cleanest air in 50 years
    950,000 trees and six million square feet of reflective rooftop added to our urban landscape
    Building codes upgraded to prepare for floods, wind, and extreme weather
    19% reduction in carbon emissions since 2005, well ahead of our goal to reach 30% reduction by 2030

A changing climate, a growing population, aging infrastructure, and an evolving economy with increasing inequality pose challenges to our city’s success and quality of life.

Climate change could bring higher temperatures, much higher sea levels, and more flooding to NYC: report
A report by the New York City Panel on Climate Change predicts that average temperatures could jump nearly 9 degrees, rainfall could increase 13% and sea levels would increase by over two feet, meaning the daily high tides in places like Queens would cause daily flooding.
BY Erin Durkin
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Tuesday, February 17, 2015, 11:50 PM

 “We expect temperatures to increase, precipitation likely to go up as well, and an acceleration of sea level rise,” said Radley Horton, a Columbia University scientist and panel member. “Sea level rise alone is going to increase the flood risk.”

Sea levels will increase 11 to 21 inches by the 2050s, 18 to 39 inches by the 2080s, and 22 to 50 inches by 2100, the group warned. And in the worst case scenario, the jump will be more than 6 feet if climate change goes unchecked.

Higher sea levels will mean more floods like the inundation brought by Sandy. The flood zone is expected to double in size by 2100, covering 99 square miles of the city.
