One of the most interesting parts of NTP and NTP servers is how the core epistemic problem is addressed. Dr. Mills’ ntpd has aspects of both voting on the truth and following common sense. mastodon.social/@arstechnica/1

The Reuters article @… links to about #tesla mechanical failures is well worth reading - and terrifying. It's important to read it - and perhaps ask when the #NHTSAgov

Finally, we should say a word or two about the most vital of our macronutrients: water. We consume about two and a half quarts [2.4 l] of water a day, though we are not generally aware of it because about half is contained within our foods. The conviction that we should all drink eight glasses of water a day is the most enduring of dietary misunderstandings. The idea has been traced to a 1945 paper from the U.S. Food and Nutrition Board, which noted that that was the amount that the average person consumed in a day. "What happened," Dr. Stanley Goldfarb of the University of Pennsylvania told the BBC radio program More or Less in 2017, "was that people sort of confused the idea that this was the required intake. And the other confusion that occurred was then people said that it is not so much that you should take in eight ounces [0.24 l] eight times a day, but that you should consume that in addition to whatever fluid you consume in association with your diet and your meals. And there was never any evidence for that."
One other enduring myth concerning water intake is the belief that caffeinated drinks are diuretics and make you pee out more than you have taken in. They may not be the most wholesome of options for liquid refreshment, but they do make a net contribution to your personal water balance. Thirst, curiously, is not a reliable indication of how much water you need. People allowed to drink all the water they want after getting very thirsty usually report feeling slaked after drinking only one-fifth the amount they have lost through perspiration.
Drinking too much water can actually be dangerous. Normally, your body manages fluid balance very well, but occasionally people take in so much water that the kidneys cannot get rid of it fast enough and they end up dangerously diluting the sodium levels in their blood, setting off a condition known as hyponatremia.

This will be a huge undertaking by a rowing crew of these four Canadian women marine scientists to raise funds for marine conservation and education. This is a significant chunk of time to devote to this, and I wish them fair winds and following seas. #SaltyScience

“When it comes to big troubles, the Republican counties suffer far and away the worst problems – and they’re getting even worse. Unlike fraudulent, “cherry picked” political claims that select only certain years to show whatever trend partisans want, I use mathematical trendlines that incorporate all years in the period into a single trend in the following charts.”
