Some photos from our trip to the UK #vacation #trip

We are on a one week trip to England! The weather during the Channel crossing was great. We always take the ferry (and not the tunnel) for nostalgic reasons, the ferry is a bit slower, but the experience (that’s the White Cliffs of Dover in the distance) is unbeatable.

Don’t ask me who this gentleman is.

Hastings, the place where William the Conquerer landed in 1066. The old harbor is very attractive for a walk, and the restaurants offer good food too.

This seagull had its head straight into the west wind, intelligent animals, always on the lookout for some food that the tourists may drop. I love their cry; a mix of hopelessness and glee.

I loved the old boats on the beach; doesn’t this scene have a post-apocalyptic flavor to it? It almost looks as if the background is fake, but this is the real sky and beach. The colors are splendid due to the overcast.

I am donating money to a good cause (on your behalf)

#Announcing a new #Fundraiser: help #children suffering from the #ConflictInSyria. You donate, I pay! Read about the past fundraisers in my blog clemenssuter.com.

For the month of August, I will triple the royalties for any sale of my work, and will donate that entire sum to UNICEF. By buying my work, you will help children in need!

UNICEF defends the rights of every child. After years of conflict, Syrians are facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with grave protection and human rights violations occurring daily. Children have paid the heaviest price in the conflict. Nearly 6 million children now depend on humanitarian assistance, with almost half forced to flee their homes. Many families have lost everything.

How does this Fundraiser work?

  • Simply buy any of my works during the month of August, through any of the channels available: see "How to buy my books" in the right sidebar. If you would like to buy one of my paintings, use the contact button on the top right of this page.
  • Within two months after close of the fundraiser, I will sum up the royalties across all channels,  triple this amount and donate it by direct bank order to UNICEF.

Did you know? Through these fundraisers, I have been able to donate hundreds of euros to charity.

Spread the word with help of the buttons below. This is your chance to get prime books and paintings – and to help those that are less fortunate.

A maximum of 1000€ will be donated.

“The Exploration of Planet #17824540930” – A FREE short story

The Exploration of Planet#17824540930

Published by Clemens P. Suter at

Report#1783965825 – Exploration of Planet#17824540930

Author: B143-Unit#29588885959

Date: #8493003947

Main conclusions:

  • Economic Impact Estimate: low: <0.1 eie
  • Risk Impact Estimate: low: <0.1 rie
  • Recommended Action: Isolate Planet
  • Standard#1846637 precautions against discovery obeyed
  • B143-Unit#29588885959 remained undetected

B143-Unit#29588885959 inspected Planet#17824540930 (part of Starsystem#17824540930) taking Standard#1846637 precautions. Main goal of mission was investigation of adjacent gas planets and asteroid belt for colonization suitability – see separate, more extensive Report#1783965826, including feasibility study with positive assessment). As Planet#17824540930 is not suited for long-term survival (75% of surface covered by liquid water with trace chemicals) B143-Unit#29588885959 was only able to explore Planet#17824540930 superficially.

Lifeforms and Economic Assessment

Lifeforms on Planet#17824540933 are primitive. Mostly non-autonomous, non-self-reproducing bots, evolving at a slow pace. Limited connections between individual bots; no connections to universal or extra-planetary network. A re-visit to Planet#17824540933 and integration of the bots into our network may be compelling at some later stage, based on assumption that the bots may mature further. As mineable mineral levels on this planet are minimal (except for cerium-, europium- and neodymium-concentrations), the total economic impact of colonization is estimated to be low (0.01-0.1 range). This assessment includes: mineable minerals, value of current lifeforms, and usefulness of organics.

Organics

Planet#17824540933 abounds with organic life, of many types and sizes. This high variation could potentially meet with considerable scientific interest, but no related economic benefit could be uncovered (preliminary data). As Planet#17824540933 revolves around its axis rapidly, resulting in a high frequency of successive dark/light periods, these organics have surprisingly short replication cycles and lifespans.

At least 8,547,000 different types of organics seem to exist (initial data), and were preliminary classified. Some organics (species#0-#4,000,000) mine the light from the accompanying star (absorption of wavelength interval 560–520 nm), and employ this energy to chemically upgrade the planet’s minerals. These organics create carbon-based biomass and propagate efficiently, covering most of the planet’s surface. These types of organics do not have a locomotion apparatus, and are thus mainly immobile. Many other types of organics exist (preliminary assigned to species#4,000,000 to #8,547,000) that are parasitic, devouring the light-mining organics or other parasitic organics. This has led to a complex, well-balanced and delicate ecosystem; which appears to be evolving. Additional expeditions and more research will be needed to determine the putative evolution rate, and predict evolution outcomes.

The parasitic organics come in many forms, most of which are highly mobile individuals: either swimming in the liquid that covers the planet, crawling on its surface, or flying through its atmosphere. This makes for a highly erratic environment, which requires considerable acclimatization by future expedition members. Expeditions are advised to also consider the detrimental contents of the atmosphere, which are highly oxidative.

Details: Organic#6,474,444

One organics-type (preliminary categorized as #6,474,444) stands out and is therefore described here in more detail.

(1) Organic#6,474,444 appears to be the sole source of life on the planet: uniquely these individuals design, create and connect the bots. These bots execute simple steps in a highly complex process that benefits Organic#6,474,444, although the exact advantages of each step in this process are not immediately transparent. They seem to assist Organic#6,474,444 in […]

We’ve hidden a dog in this picture. Can you find it?

Spot our dog Buddy in this photo. Can you find him?
(I told me spouse we shouldn’t get a black dog ;-)
