Thunderclap

Coffee, Tea, and Gluten Free: The Cookbook

I am trying a program called Thunderclap. 

It requires you have 100 social media accounts agree to share an advertising post at the same time. 

They share on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. 

  I tried Bending the Bars (https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/63605-bending-the-bars-survival), Coffee, Tea, and Gluten Free: The Cookbook (https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/63606-easy-gluten-free-cooking), and Trails 1: Trails Through the Fault Lines (https://www.instafreebie.com/book/45103).  If I have trouble getting enough supporters, then I won’t bother again.

Bending the Bars

Bending the Bars did post, and no sales yet.

I am hoping my readers here will be interested the Cookbook and Trails 1.

If you have read any of my books, please support these campaigns to let others know they exist.  The more support, the more readers know about them.

Landfills

One subject that is covered in nearly the entire Trails Series is Landfills.
Landfills are the bane of the last 120 years.
Before then, our ancestors used and re-used items they created until they were no longer useful. Then, they served as fuel.
In some areas, particularly along coastlines, a garbage might develop – containing the discarded shells fish. Anthropologists enjoy studying them.
Did you know that a newspaper printed and placed in a landfill over 100 years ago, would be as readable as it was when placed there?
The descendants of today will have to mine our landfills. they will have to find a way to safely dispose of things such as the billions of batteries, electronics, broken light bulbs, and other items that leak toxins into our drinking water.
They have been left a sordid chore.
What to do with all the toxins? How to safely dispose of them so that they can never again harm the environment, or a living being?

As We Lose Our Way

As I watch our nation lose it way, I’m sad.
No more education (no teachers, doctors, nurses, architects, scientists, astronauts, geologists, and more).
No more EPA. No more safe food. No safe steams to play in, fish to eat, or water to drink.
No more FDA. Drugs and food will no longer be regulated. It’ll be a buy at your own risk to eat and drink.
I wrote Trails 1: Trails Through the Fault Lines, and Trails 2: Trails Through the Volcano.
Had no intention of them being prophetic. We know who Mr. Spike is. And the damage he has done.
Yes. Yellowstone will speak. Not kindly. Her ash flows will cover most of the U. S. The Rio Sea will rise again.

Inspirational Scientists – Ron Schott

Ron Schott is a geologist.  He was an early adopter of Google Plus and the hangouts. Those hangouts were very educational.  The picture sharing didn’t work as well at that stage.  Lots of talk about geology, earthquakes, and volcanoes.  I don’t think he is still doing these.  Or, only for specific private groups.  He posts frequently on Twitter.  These pictures are always fascinating.  He also has a website for his gigapans: http://gigapan.com/cms/ron-schott-and-his-1-000-gigapans .

Thanks to his help, I was able to make my geologists and volcanologist more believable.  As well as have an opportunity to ask questions about the landscapes Amber and Alex would encounter.  I did my best to avoid some of the movie myths that annoy true geologists.  I may not have caught all of them.  I truly appreciated all of his efforts to help bring science alive to people who otherwise might feel intimidated by it.  Hopefully, I can make others feel they can study and contribute to the future of scientific knowledge.

Inspirational Scientists – Charles F Richter (1900 – 1985) and Giuseppe Mercalli (1850 – 1914)

Giuseppe Mercalli combined earthquake intensity scales to develop his own that came to be known as the Mercalli Scale.  Later, Charles F Richter developed a magnitude scale to measure earthquakes.  His scale was used for decades.  Now, there is a modified Mercalli scale with twelve levels that most scientists use.  The most common earthqaukes fall into the first two levels, and may not be noticed by most people.  Buildings will rarely suffer damage before level seven, though they speed up quickly from there.  And continued large quakes without repairs may cause damage at lower levels.

In my novels, Trails 1: Trails Through the Fault Lines and Trails 2: Trails Through the Volcano, the scientist Dr. Rebecca explains the switch to the Modified Mercalli Scale, and how the accumulated affects will affect buildings.  The people in the novel show the frayed nerves and behaviors of those who suddenly undergo frequent noticeable quakes.
