No Code, no mistake. If a new reply is made within an hour of your last post it will be appended to your last post separated by a long line. If you look in an edit window it will have an [hr ] where the line is.

The logo up now with the white lettering doesn't stand out like the black lettering did.

Pia, Are you now inserting the 'required text' over the logo picture?  Does this mean Code could display other artwork as background taking into account the position of the text without too much trouble?  I'm glad someone liked our nuclear gallows humor.  You're wise to shorten the message to something acceptable.  I see more guests online reading and some looking at the registration page.    

Code, I thought you might appreciate this comparison picture for your collection.  It shows the decrease in robustness and cranial size in our lineage from Archaic, to Neanderthal, to Modern human with the three pound brain.  Humanity may have been thru an atomic age before but our current history says we crawled out of caves and achieved nuclear technology in only 6 thousand years.  How many times does mankind repeat this cycle in our two million year history?  Will we never learn?

I think Code got the proportions right.  From the progression, I think we'll end up with the lower jaw jutting out more with maybe a severe under-bite.  I think the Denisovan skull looks more cheerful/happier than the modern human skull; look at that grin.  Makes me wonder what their world was like.  The hints of a greater past surround us, from Baalbeck to the Great Pyramid; monumental constructions reduced to ruins by the ravages of time.  We don't know much of our history and our memories seem very short.  A predator stalks the herd of humanity which keeps us from learning and knowing ourselves and the real world around us.  Our modern world with nuclear technology is not making us any happier, wiser, or healthier.  Radiation contamination is spreading; from mining the uranium ore; reprocessing into weapons and fuel cells; producing more radioactive waste material in commercial and research use; and the many losses of containment accidents.  The risks the nuclear industry takes is filling our world with dead zones.   The risks the nuclear industry has taken with our health is destroying our future.

In mythology, a double-headed creature with each face poised in opposite directions is said to look to the future and to the past representing a doorway or transition.  The griffin was considered to be the greatest of all creatures, a protector.  Nuclear science's great achievement was splitting the atom.  What has been done with that power?  I'm impressed with CaféRadLab's new logo picture, it offers something to think about on it's own.  I hope we keep it for awhile, at least until we get the mission statement and text font worked out.

Baalbeck is incredible.  I will be going back there next week.

You are full of surprises LWH.  I've wanted to see Baalbeck and Giza myself but haven't had a chance.  I hope you share your impressions of Baalbeck with us and maybe even some pictures.  Did you look at the nuclear pyramid link?  Any thoughts on the Great Pyramid?  If the Giza complex was cooking up plutonium they did a successful decommissioning job.  

While you've been out there testing for radionuclides we've been busy re-decorating your website.  I like the logo and other improvements Code and Pia have come up with.  We've added more contributors; Code has posted medical research on radiation's health effects, Vital1 with Southern Hemisphere radiation readings and research, Staup helping us understand NRC notices for US NPPs.  We've been working Pia pretty hard lately but she's doing an admirable admin job as well as posting research and news. I'm grateful you let me and the webcam forum join your team to document and inform people that nuclear is just another disaster waiting to happen.  When does the amount of ionizing radiation and radionuclide contamination become too much of a risk?
