Breasts Without Women: Reading Gary Snyder in the Year 2022
This movie was actually pretty funny. If you are a scientist, especially a woman in the sciences, then you will relate to many of these quips. Microbiologists, cancer biologists, social scientists, grad students, lab interns and university administrators are all represented humorously. There is even some quasi-queerness, so overall a pretty inclusive #film.

Rant about rent
Today I applied for a home in a random city in America. If I am approved, I will move to random city later this month. Hopefully it will be better than current city. But the rental is 3x the price of my current house and significantly smaller/worse. Thanks capitalism for increasing housing costs year over year while keeping wages stagnant. Now I will be paying the same for a shabby place in random city as I did for a nice house in San Francisco 10 years ago. Fuck you neoliberals.

This makes me feel only *slightly* better. Correcting the misinformation in reporting on the story about plankton reduction in the oceans. https://arstechnica.com/science/2022/07/no-the-oceans-are-not-empty-of-plankton/
The climate research that has always rocked me most is when we see the impacts on the biosphere and essential species. Yet we focus so much attention on global warming and weather effects (which are of course the precursors to destabilization in ecosystems, but harder for people to grasp the connection).
Why is the east side of town always the bad side in American cities? I'm looking for a new place to live and reviewing housing and crime data in various neighborhoods.
I recall reading or watching a documentary many years ago that attributed this phenomenon to how the railroads were originally constructed through towns. I'm sure segregation had a lot to do with this too. It's just surprising how this persists today.
Systemic racism literally built into its foundation. Wrong side of the tracks.
I watched all four Matrix films (Matrices?) this week. Given their length and silliness, I feel I should be given a badge of some kind. The #MILF in the last movie made it worth it I guess. (Not a spoiler, just a general truth.)
