Jesse's 6 month check up - by kim | December 20, 2007, 08:59:13 AM
Jesse had his 6 month checkup on monday.  Hes doing really good the dr. said.  He was 19 lbs 8.5 oz which is the 80th percentile for weight.  This is a drop from before, but since hes starting solids and moving around more its expected.  He is 27 inches long which is 75th percentile for height and is 45.5 cm circumfrance on his head (90th percentile).  So hes a big boy with a big head..Wink  He got 3 shots and a oral vaccine, poor baby.  Wyatt told on me that night to Mark...It was something like 'Momma, Baby..booboo.."  Jesse is doing the army crawl thing and getting around really good.  He is sitting up  good, but has not figured out how to sit himself up yet.

I moved servers again - by Mark | December 19, 2007, 10:30:31 PM
Life has gotten too busy to stay one step ahead of the hackers.  So I have decided to move zerr.org over to a paid webhost for the time being in an attempt to let someone else handle all the various security patches and server configuration issues.  This should be a transparent process to everyone who visits the website or sends email to zerr.org.  However, if you see any "odd" behavior over the next few days...it is most likely temporary and will be fixed up fairly quickly.  WebSite

Stem Cell Breakthrough! - by Mark | November 30, 2007, 10:15:31 PM
Now I can have my cake and eat it to! All thanks to brilliant scientists who felt uncomfortable with destroying one human life to "possibly" save another.  Once again science triumphs over questionable ethical and moral dilemmas...but you have to give science time to overcome its own problem set.  Thankfully the evil, science hating George W Bush drew a line and held it while science pushed through the breakthrough needed to satisfy the scientific and moral imperatives of stem cell research.  I love it when a plan comes together.

Quote
"If human embryonic stem cell research does not make you at least a little bit uncomfortable, you have not thought about it enough."

-- James A. Thomson


A decade ago, Thomson was the first to isolate human embryonic stem cells. Last week, he (and Japan's Shinya Yamanaka) announced one of the great scientific breakthroughs since the discovery of DNA: an embryo-free way to produce genetically matched stem cells.

Even a scientist who cares not a whit about the morality of embryo destruction will adopt this technique because it is so simple and powerful. The embryonic stem cell debate is over.

What is Evil? - by Mark | November 27, 2007, 09:38:34 PM
Have you ever wondered if Evil truly exists?  Never doubt it again.

Quote
The details in an arrest affidavit paint a chilling picture of the girl's last days. In a statement to police included in the affidavit, Trenor, 19, said she and Zeigler, 24, killed Riley July 24.

The girl was beaten with leather belts, had her head held underwater in a bathtub and then was thrown across a room, her head slamming into a tile floor, the mother said in the document. She said they kept the body in a storage shed for one to two months before they put it in a plastic bin and dumped it into Galveston Bay.

F*cking Evil Monsters....burn in hell.

Rest in Peace, Riley Ann Sawyers, you are truly in a better place now than being forced to live with the monsters whom killed you here on Earth.  Riley was only 2 years old and her picture brought tears to my eyes.

Dedication Defined - by Mark | November 25, 2007, 09:13:36 PM
This story is simply awe-inspiring.  Just think if only everyone had half as much dedication as these people have?

Quote
Few have been granted permission to see these marvels.

Indeed, the Italian government was not even aware of their existence until a few years ago.

But the 'Temples of Damanhur' are not the great legacy of some long-lost civilisation, they are the work of a 57-year-old former insurance broker from northern Italy who, inspired by a childhood vision, began digging into the rock.

You must click through and see the pictures.  Amazing stuff....and the best part....is that government had nothing to do with its creation and was not even aware of its existence....until you guessed it...the tax man came calling.  Death and taxes...

Thanksgiving - by Mark | November 21, 2007, 10:48:06 PM
In 1789, George Washington, gave the following Thanksgiving day proclamation.  Notice how many times he invokes references to our creator and pay particular attention to his statement regarding religion AND science.  A man so great does not walk the earth often enough.

Quote
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor -- and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."
 Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be -- That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks -- for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation -- for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the tranquility [sic], union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed -- for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted -- for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.  
 
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions -- to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually -- to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed -- to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn [sic] kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord -- To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease [sic] of science among them and us -- and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York
the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

2007 Deer Season - by Mark | November 20, 2007, 09:50:09 PM
Well...my family's annual trip to Siren, WI for Thanksgiving and deer hunting is underway.  This year I was lucky enough to bag a pretty nice 8 point buck the second morning of the season (Sunday).  Here is a picture of the beast.  The deer are all real thick this year after a bumper crop of acorns.  My buck is already getting processed into yummy meat, and I even paid 100 bucks for a European mount, which is where they bleach the skull and horns and then mount it to a nice piece of wood.

Cyborgs are coming - by Mark | November 13, 2007, 11:15:55 PM
Check this out.

In the Brain2Robot project, an international team of researchers has developed a robot control system that works on the basis of electroencephalograph (EEG) signals. This new idea could enable patients with severe motor disabilities to regain some of their lost autonomy.

The patient controls the robot arm with their thoughts: If they think about wanting to move their right hand, the robot arm is activated. If they imagine themselves moving their left hand, the robot arm will, for instance, lift up a cup of coffee.

Here's a question for you...if your significant other were paralyzed from the neck down and were outfitted with a device such as this that controlled a robot body that looked, acted, and felt just like your significant other....would you be able to tell the difference?  Would you even care?  Hell, for that matter, how do you know your significant other is not already doing this?  Humanity will be taking on a whole other meaning in the next two decades.  Are you ready?

5 Year Anniversary of Zerr.org - by Mark | November 11, 2007, 11:10:56 AM
December 1, 2007 will mark 5 years of zerr.org on the Internet.  This website started as a simple method to stay connected with my family, then turned into a way for me to broadcast all my political, religious, and scientific thoughts.  Since this site was started, I married a wonderful women who has given birth to two freaking awesome little boys and we have moved from St. Louis, MO to Cedar Rapids, IA.  Life sure moves fast when your having fun!

Thanks to everyone who stops by this site to read my stories and thoughts, catch up on my family's life, and look forward to the future with hope that somehow the world will make sense yet again.
