Lupins of our lives go back a long time. The Romans spread lupin seeds in their empire. Many of the hundreds of species of the genus Lupinus in the legume family thrive in the Americas. Native Americans in the North and Incas in the South ate some on regular basis. Lupin flowers are also lovely wherever you see them.

James Hollis, Ph.D., is a graduate of the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich. He has taught  mythology and religion, men's issues, and midlife. His books have been translated into Russian, German, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Italian, Korean, Finnish, and Japanese. "Under Saturn's Shadow - THE WOUNDING AND HEALING OF MEN" is the impetus for my interview.

SB: Taking words from your book, I feel empowered to dive into life and struggle for depth and meaning. Dr. Hollis, thanks very much for this interview. Shall we get serious about psyche?

The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) is a twin-satellite system to study in detail the Earth's gravity field. The GRACE data consist of  accelerometer, GPS, and attitude measurements from each satellite plus the inter-satellite range change measurements. NASA says GRACE time-varying gravity signals measure seasonal variations in underground aquifers.
It is a start. The first version of the Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN) was published for the process diagram, the entity relationship diagram, and the activity flow diagram. The figure caption below is copied from the August 8 issue of the journal Nature Biotechnology, unfortunately, without its figure.
CO2 reduction targets can be met with affordability. An EPRI report released this week concludes affordability requires a "full portfolio" of electricity sector technologies. Diverse generation "could simultaneously address the challenge of growing load demand while meeting carbon constraints and limiting increases in the cost of electricity." 

You don't want carbon dioxide (CO2) build up in your space suit. Even those who argue to love huge CO2 emissions into our atmosphere should learn from the AP news: Two astronauts cut short their spacewalk and hurried back to the safety of the international space station (ISS) on Wednesday after a suit problem resulted in rising carbon dioxide levels for one of the men.

First, here is an image of a spacewalk. Two astronauts, Robert L. Curbeam (USA) and Christer Fuglesang (Sweden), work to attach a new truss segment to the ISS and begin to upgrade the power grid. This occurred on December 12, 2006.
