2023.06.02 17:07 Coughingmakesmegag My biggest issue with AM is the personalized radio
This portion of the app needs an overhaul. I don’t how they can look at competitors like Spotify and Pandora who have been doing personalized radios for 15+ years and still get it wrong.
This morning on my commute the personalized radio played 10 songs in a loop over and over no matter how many times I hit skip. I had 5G full bars the entire commute and this is not the first time this has happened. Usually if signal is not good it will just pause the music indefinitely. Also i have no data restrictions in settings of phone or app so I have no idea why this keeps happening other than bad programming.
Also I know other people have asked about this but there needs to be a reliable way to block an artist from playing on your station, that is the whole point of personalization.

2023.06.02 17:06 inexplicably-hairy moaning in this subreddit. sick of it.
i cant believe the way ricky and steve treat karl sometimes- they act like he's stupid and laugh when he says stupid things. they dont even really care about educating him. you would almost get the impression they're playing it up for laughs on a tinpot radio station for the amusement of the public, but its far more sinsiter than that. sometimes it makes me sick. even ricky says stupid things sometimes like 'infinity sorts it out for ya'. u dont see him getting laughed at though do you?
anyway ive got a lot more lines from this 20 year old show that im going ti dissect and write essays about so everyone knows my exact feelings on them. im even thinking of making a formal complaint to the broadcasting authority about the BULLYING and abuse done by that sick narcissist ricky on poor karl- oh you think you're so clever ricky do u? dont get me wrong im still going to obsessively listen to every episode over and over again, but i really think the whole thing was just sick game to torment karl. i hate ricky and steve and everything they say, but i will still be enjoying the show of a saturday.

2023.06.02 16:57 Katlek How to productively slack at work?
My work requires me to operate a machine and there is a ton of time in between its cycles. I am looking for things to do, to somehow make use of that time. The machine is loud so reading or watching a movie comfortably is not possible. The internet access is very limited, even radio stations are banned.
I tried doing duolingos or Mimos (duolingo for coding), but same as for reading, the noise makes it hard to focus.
i'd love to hear suggestions!

2023.06.02 16:44 Jshutyourface [TOMT][Song] Pop/Hip-Hop song about zodiac signs with the lyric “I say I’m a Gemini.” Probably released after 2020.
This song kept coming up on my Jack Harlow radio on Spotify, and I swore I saved it to a playlist. Now I can’t find it for the life of me.
Lyrics I remember, that are probably incorrect since Google is no help:
- I say I’m a Gemini, what you make that face for
- Shorty like a taurus, she love…
- She asks me all the time like what’s your name, what’s your sign
Examples of other artists on that station: Amine, Post Malone, Lil Nas X, KYLE

2023.06.02 16:33 Dangerous_Court_955 What is a classical music radio station that regularly programs new or contemporary pieces?
I have listened to WQXR, WFMT, SWR2 and Classic fm. Ironically, I think the latter programs the most new music, but it isn't exactly what I am looking for. The other three radio stations rarely program contemporary classical music, with the exception of whole concerts that they broadcast.
What then is a radio station that broadcasts contemporary classical music more often?

2023.06.02 15:58 Mega-Analyzer What LP songs do you still hear in public, mainly in places of business?
I work in a large home improvement store, and get to hear one LP song almost daily now: Shadow of the Day. Literally no other song from them is ever played on that store's particular (Muzak?) radio station.
It's far from my favorite, even on MTM, but it is still appreciated. I prefer hearing it at night, when the shift is closer to ending. There is something more soothing about it, after a day of hard work and hecticness.

2023.06.02 15:18 avshrikumar The Skeptic's Guide to a Theory of Souls
Given that lots of skeptics lurk in this subreddit, I am curious to get their take on the following theory of souls, built from the ground-up starting with observations about consciousness.
Article title: "Are we created by our brains, or are we 'tuned into' our brains until death?" Byline: "Towards a model of consciousness that fits all the data" Link: https://avshrikumar.medium.com/are-we-created-by-our-brains-or-do-we-tune-into-our-brains-until-we-die-5387bf35529c
It's long, but a proper treatment of this subject has to be long. Teaser: "It is commonly assumed that our conscious experience is created by brain activity because when regions of the brain are inactivated, people report losing consciousness associated with those regions. However, consider this analogy: if a radio is tuned to a radio station, and the radio station experiences an equipment malfunction and goes down, the radio will pick up silence; this does not mean the radio was created by the radio station. In other words, all the evidence used to argue that our conscious experience is created by brain activity is equally compatible with a model in which the brain merely generates signals that our conscious experience is tuned into."
Here are the article subheadings in case it piques your interest:
- Where existing models of consciousness fall short
- The “tunable conduit” model of consciousness
- Extending the tunable conduit model to include signals originating outside the brain
- Evidence for the extended model gathered under controlled experimental settings
- Does this evidence contradict established science?
- A word of caution
- Evidence that thought can exist purely in “conduit” form
- Evidence from near-death experiences
- Evidence from young children reporting verifiable ‘past-life’ memories
- Evidence that spirit entities encountered under hypnosis can confer accurate information previously unknown to the subject
- Potential clues on the physics of souls
- Clues about the functional role souls play in the brain
- Clues about the wave-like nature of souls
- Clues about the soul’s relationship with time
- A clue about “free will”
- The limits on what may be possible
- Neale Donald Walsch’s Out-of-Body Experience
- Milarepa’s handprint
- Sri M’s account of meeting the Sai Baba of Shirdi
- Could this help explain other weird observations?
- Questions that keep people up at night
- Do “evil” spirits exist?
- Is “karma” real?
- …and a Pandora’s box of follow-up questions
Feedback from interested readers is welcome

2023.06.02 14:39 LateCamp440 Kmart stories from childhood?
I’m curious to hear people’s stories from going to Kmart as a child, specifically funny/chaotic/just sentimental memories. Yesterday while at the doctor, one of the nurses was telling me a story about how when she was a kid she stole a pack of cinnamon gum from Kmart, and I can picture it so clearly and it’s so silly to me.
I was also listening to an 80s station on the radio, and a woman told a story of how she saved up babysitting money in the 80s to buy a cassette player from Kmart layaway. My personal memories are vague, but I remember a container of bouncy balls near the checkout line that I’d always love, and the claw machine. What are yours?

2023.06.02 14:36 Personal_Bunch4605 Petraptor Companion
The Petraptor, a waste of Dementonite Clusters and time, they require time and attention, if without they will starve or get lost due to a breach in the sub. Petraptors are dumb and stupid they are very useless, annoyingly noisy and is a waste of precious materials such as saline and dementonite, all they do is poop and eat while being extremely horrible at defending and attacking; in addition they have weak stats and die easily, offering nothing but liability and frustration, especially in single-player campaign.
Petraptors must become TRAINABLE
like dogs and have growth milestones to provide impact in the game and crew especially in late-game and PvP
; I demand, that the Petraptor must have commands and have talent skill trees for learning talents while equipped with equipment slots for raptor-gear or equipment in order to provide the Petraptor with formidable power and ability to become a late game exploration explorer-hard-carry
In order for the Petraptor to be revolutionized the following must be implemented:
•Basic Features -The owner must get a new hotbar available on the interface that lists commands for Petraptor to follow.
-Commands should have hierarchy, for example: protect owner, this commands must override other existing pending commands.
-The Petraptor should have radio equipment communication slot available to fill in in order to transmit commands over long distances, though some commands should be left unusable over great distances, some commands should have range limits.
-The Petraptor should have talents in order to get new skills and be able to learn to heed more commands and expand A.I.
-The Petraptor should be teleported beside the owner whenever docking and saving in an outpost and it must trigger a follow the owner command automatically, to avoid losing the Petraptor.
-The Petraptor should have collar slot and collars that can be equipped similar to head equipment slot of human entities, that serve as I.D to enter hulls with manual pet sensor modification.
-The Petraptor should have growth stages, each stage require materials, and each stage should give it more abilities, natural armor, stats, etc. To balance this hunger should increase as well.
-Stations must sell monster meat that a player can use to feed Petraptor and unique food items can give unique buffs and debuffs to Petraptor.
-Petraptors should have health interfaces, however it can only be accessed by an owner, medic or an assistant, to further balance the Petraptor medic and owner are given a -70% efficiency on using medical items on Petraptor, unless it is a assistant giving aid to the Petraptor.
-The Petraptor should have weapons slots to be filled in with weapons that can help them capture or hunt prey and fight bigger monsters, with each different types of weapons providing different uses such as: piercing, grappling, wall climbing, blunt force trauma, stun, bleeding and decapitation.
-The Petraptor should have artificial armor equipment in order to better protect them in combat against a swarm of monsters and bullets as well as grant them extra speed and slowness
in land and in water similar to the Slipsuit
-The Petraptor must have a talent than will enable it to crawl between small spaces or just dash through em to provide mobility in land.
-The Petraptor must have a talent to mine ores and commands to make them breach walls like a boarding axe.
-The Petraptor should be able to be genetically modified.
-The Petraptor must never get lost, refer to the outpost teleportation mechanism above.
-The Petraptor could have an equippable brain chip that can be connected to handheld sonars in order to improve efficiency of the device.
-The Petraptor should have a talent on grappling it should have two different types that will be used for bigger enemies and smaller enemies. Grappling should neutralize humans effectively and it should only happen when Petraptor sprints and jumps them like a xenomorph, it must immobilize humans and kill them my biting off their hands though effectiveness can be determined by talents, such as a hit and run grapple where the Petraptor just bites a player stunning them and drags them around as it retreats in safety or to the owner. This should also apply on smaller creatures. However, against giant creatures Petraptor should instead latch on to them similar to how mudraptors destroy the exterior of submarines.
-The Petraptor should avoid getting damaged unless necessary and resort to hit and run maneuver that utilizes walls and environment.
-The Petraptor should have a stalk talent that enables it to walk without sounds, therefore it will be invisible to sonar.
-The Petraptor should have a talent that makes it realize it can use walls to jump on and propel themselves to deal more damage.
-The Petraptor must win solo against a thresher swarm breach
and must utilize walls while using hit and run manuever.
•Advanced A.I Features
-Talents should improve Petraptor A.I helping it becoming human A.I.
-When out of the submarines, owner can command Petraptor to return to submarine, but due to it unable to open the airlock it will just wait and follow the submarine as it moves and latch on to the submarine.
-The Petraptor must locate the submarine without fail, similar to how wild mudraptors locate a submarine.
-Petraptor should have a patrol sub commands, with this commands they can efficiently guard the submarine and use echolocation to successfully locate breaches and intruders, they will breach walls if necessary and protect the crew repairing the sub. WHILE EXECUTING THIS COMMAND THEY ARE UNABLE TO GET OUT OF SUBMARINE AT ALL COST.
That Petraptor should be a formidable ally for the game and crew, like Rex
the Tamed Armored Mudraptor
from the civilian transportation event, big and scary, strong and deadly, the Petraptor will be your friend and ally amongst the denizens of Europa. A biological weapon able to tear monsters and humans apart in one single command or provocation, a force to be reckoned with.

2023.06.02 14:00 NewBeginning0826 A POV from someone who lost another someone due to s*icide.
I was working in a radio station with my own program. At that time my most common topics were about mental health, pre-pandemic. I was younger, arrogant and stupid, too confident discussing what I think I know about life. While I was busy telling people about what not, one morning I received a message from mom, my 17 year old cousin, a young lady with bright future, an ate to two sisters and probably the only cousin from my dad's side I wouldn't mind talking and hanging out with, killed herself. I am the Ate, I was her ate. I was supposed to protect her. Right under my nose, she slipped to her death. Its been years now. I still hate myself. I still cry about it. I still think of what I could have done. Its easy to say not to blame myself, that I wasn't part of the cause but maybe if I could have sent her a message, a simple "How are you?", maybe I could've helped but I didn't. I was busy pretending I know stuff, of helping, when the one that needed more help was left unattended. A while ago, I was walking on my way back to my place I saw a police officer with a teenage girl in the bridge, she was crying. I didn't want to be chismosa, maybe they were talking about something else, maybe the police officer caught her in time before god knows what she was about to do. It reminded me of her, if someone could have been there to tell her not to do it. That she was love, that she matter, that there's so much more about life she will experience. More heartaches, more failure, more mess but more laughter, more love, more dreams as well. But there was no one. So I'm sitting in the living room, in the dark and about to lit my second stick of cigarette and wait until I can stop sobbing about it.

2023.06.02 13:54 scribbyshollow Megalithic sites and the atmospheric potential gradient (APG)
Recent scientific findings have come to support the claims of large megalithic structures acting as artificial gateways for the earths electrical energy. Not directly mind you but recent finding in the the field of "electrical ecology" have made some serious findings in the past few years that support these kinds of theories.
One in particular is the "telluric grid theory"
"Before or during the last ice age a global culture existed on earth, not one that was in contact globally but rather a sort of globally practiced way of thinking and inherited traditions. Not a technologically advanced one like ours but one who fully understood nature and its machinations through centuries of observation. Inevitably this culture noticed static electricity and the natural electrical flows of the earth and the many energies that play out on and within it. Eventually they learned how to focus, control and interact with these energy flows like one could control the flow of water with a funnel or damn.
They did this by building giant megalithic structures know to us as pyramids and temples that were passed down from one generation to the next. The purpose of some of these original temples were to artificially alter the electrical environment and possibly use it to propagate plant and crop growth via electrical stimulation. Not to harness electricity for technological purposes but to act as a natural “spring” or dam to release and control electrical pressure and energy within the environment. They were constructed to focus energy in its many forms and possibly to bring about generation and regeneration of life around them by stimulating and focusing the earths natural electrical energy.
As you will see these pyramid building ancient cultures had a shared practice in the form of geomancy and used what they called "the geomantic act" to pick the right place to build their sacred structures and megaliths. This practice survives to this day in the form of Feng shui, the Chinese art of placement. This is gone over in the shared mythology section. We will also go over "electroreception" and its role in evolution and how animals and life in general interact with the earths various electric fields and energies.
They did this by constructing these temples attuned to nature and its processes. They had to be in the right place, the right height, the right shape, the correct angles and built from the right materials much like today's radio towers and wireless devices adhere to these same rules. Some of these places were even built with acoustic resonance in mind, being so precise that they could manipulate sound or transform one sound into another sound intentionally.This was accomplished by havbing them interact with the "atmospheric potential gradient" which we will cover the science of in a later section.
They used geomagnetic energy and electromagnetic energy via orientation and position and atmospheric static electricity gathered at an altitude which is called the atmospheric potential gradient. Combining all three to form a sort of electric funnel into/out of the earth. What they used this energy for is purely speculative however some information regarding their use has survived. The one thing that is clear about them is that these temples had multiple functions and purposes, the same as modern day generators having multiple purposes.
Over time they established more and more of these temples worldwide forming a sort of grid on the surface of the earth with them. A geomagnetic or telluric grid. This was either a worldwide grid to control the earths interior energy, using the various “stations” to control the overall pressure and flow of earths interior energies the same way lightning balances out the earths ionosphere and ground currents just artificially and less intensive. Or these temples were just sort of town centers that performed this task locally and not on a global scale.
They came about this knowledge from the ancient art known as Alchemy. An objective science that gave birth to modern chemistry and was practiced world wide for a large portion of human history. Alchemy gave them objective knowledge of energy, they may not have understood the technical details or specifics of energy but the ancient texts of alchemy make it very clear that they objectively understood energy in its various forms and how it behaved.
More importantly, this knowledge of energy and electricity was intricately hidden inside their teachings and texts by the use of symbology and other coded communication. This brings about the question of who exactly they were hiding this knowledge from and why? This theory asserts that powerful people of the past were hunting down this knowledge of energy and destroying it and anyone who knew of it. Destroying all traces of humanities ancient past and the things they discovered."
Here is some of the supporting evidence from a recent study that combined all the various islands of research into the ecology of electricity. Actually I would recommend everyone read this study as it is the first of its kind and the beginning of an new branch of science forming. These findings will and are already making science rethink about the role of electricity in ecology and the environment and how that is and has effected life. It is a mountain of text so I only included the beginning and end of it because of size limitations for posts.

Electricity, the interaction between electrically charged objects, is widely known to be fundamental to the functioning of living systems. However, this appreciation has largely been restricted to the scale of atoms, molecules, and cells. By contrast, the role of electricity at the ecological scale has historically been largely neglected, characterized by punctuated islands of research infrequently connected to one another. Recently, however, an understanding of the ubiquity of electrical forces within the natural environment has begun to grow, along with a realization of the multitude of ecological interactions that these forces may influence. Herein, we provide the first comprehensive collation and synthesis of research in this emerging field of electric ecology. This includes assessments of the role electricity plays in the natural ecology of predator–prey interactions, pollination, and animal dispersal, among many others, as well as the impact of anthropogenic activity on these systems. A detailed introduction to the ecology and physiology of electroreception – the biological detection of ecologically relevant electric fields – is also provided. Further to this, we suggest avenues for future research that show particular promise, most notably those investigating the recently discovered sense of aerial electroreception.
Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental forces of the universe. Therefore, electromagnetic interactions inevitably influence the biotic world in a multitude of ways. There are two primary manifestations of electromagnetism: the magnetic field (magnetism), and the electric field (electricity); which when oscillating in synchronicity produce electromagnetic waves, i.e. light (Maxwell, 1865). For a summary and definition of the key electric and magnetic terminology used within this review, see Table 1. Whilst electromagnetic waves, and to some extent magnetic fields, have in many ways driven the rise and evolution of life on Earth, the influence of electric fields alone should not be understated.
Table 1. A list of electromagnetic terminology with associated definitions and SI units where applicable
Term Definition Units (if applicable) Charge A property possessed by some objects that allows them to create and interact with electric and magnetic fields. Opposite charges attract each other, whilst like charges repel each other. Coulombs (C)
Electricity The phenomena resulting from the interactions between charged objects. —
Electric field (electric field strength) The field around a charged object that will exert a force on other charged objects. The force exerted on a charge is proportional to the electric field strength. Volts per metre (V/m)
Magnetism The phenomena resulting from the movement of electrical charges. —
Magnetic field The field around a moving electrical charge (/magnetic material) that will exert a force on other moving electrical charges (/magnetic materials). Tesla (T)
Electromagnetism The combined physical phenomena associated with electricity and magnetism. —
Electromagnetic wave A propagating wave consisting of synchronised oscillations of electric and magnetic fields. Also known as ‘light’. —
Current The net flow of electrical charge through an object/space. Amperes (A)
Conductoconduction A material that allows current to flow through it. —
Conductance A measure of how well a particular object allows current to flow through it. Siemens (S)
Conductivity A material property that indicates how well a substance conducts electricity, independent of the dimensions of that substance. Siemens per metre (S/m)
Resistance Inverse of conductance. How much a particular object resists current flowing through it. Ohms (Ω)
Resistivity Inverse of conductivity. A material property indicating how well a substance resists the flow of current through it, independent of the dimensions of that substance. Ohm metres (Ωm)
Insulatoinsulation A material that does not allow current to flow freely through it (possesses high resistivity/low conductivity). —
Polarisation The net movement of charge within an object such that the distribution of charge is no longer symmetrical, resulting in an apparent electric field emanating from the object. Will sometimes be referred to as 'charge separation' if occuring within a conductor. —
Dielectric An insulating material that can be polarised when placed within an electric field. —
Potential The amount of energy theoretically required to move a unit of charge from a reference point (usually the electrical ground or a point infinitely far away) to the point in question. Volts (V)
Voltage The difference in potential between two points. Volts (V)
Ground/earth A point or object defined as being at zero potential. This will often be a conductor directly connected into the actual physical ground/earth. The ground can effectively be seen as an infinite source of charge carriers and therefore can act efficiently as a current sink. —
Capacitance The amount of charge an object can hold at a particular voltage. Farads (F)
Electrostatic induction The induction of current or polarisation within a material due to an applied electric field. —
Permittivity A measure of the polarisability of a material, which has consequences for how much electric fields are attenuated within that material. Farads per metre (F/m)
Relative permittivity The ratio of the permittivity of a material to the permittivity of a vacuum, i.e. how much weaker an electric field between two charges would be in this material compared to in a vacuum. Also known as the ‘Dielectric constant’. Dimensionless
An electric field exists around any electrically charged object, exerting a repulsive force on like charges, and an attractive force on opposite charges (Coulomb, 1785). The electrodynamic interactions of electrons and protons largely dictate the chemistry of both the abiotic and biotic world, and thus the structure of life. However, the bulk distribution and mobility of these charged particles within a material also result in electric fields manifesting their influence on biology at scales much larger than atoms and small molecules. For example, the folding of proteins, which predominantly determines their function, is governed significantly by electrostatic interactions (Zhou & Pang, 2018). It is also well appreciated that electrical interactions are responsible for a great number of cellular functions, in particular cell signalling (Lipscombe & Toro, 2014). Even at the scale of organs and organisms, the functioning of the nervous system in animals and plants relies upon electricity to generate and transmit information, in the form of propagating action potentials (Nicholls et al., 2001). However, one facet of the role of electric fields in biology has remained notably underappreciated: the ecology of electric fields. Recent work has highlighted that indeed a plethora of electrical interactions take place at the ecological scale, in terms of an organism's interactions with the physical abiotic environment, as well as conspecifics and other organisms. This article intends to review our current knowledge on the influence of electric fields at the ecological scale, including the sensory ecology of the biological detection of these fields: electroreception. Particular emphasis and detail will be given to the recently discovered field of aerial electroreception, as this provides some of the most exciting and potentially fruitful opportunities for further research. This review also aims to integrate aerial electroreception into the wider context of electroreception research by comparing and contrasting between aerial and aquatic examples, identifying common trends whilst appreciating their distinctiveness.
Abiotic electric field sources
It is first important to consider the presence of electric fields of abiotic origin. Arguably, the primary abiotic electric field source experienced by terrestrial organisms on Earth is the atmospheric potential gradient (APG) (Hunting et al., 2021c). The APG is an electric field oriented vertically in the Earth's atmosphere, such that, within the vast majority of biologically inhabited altitudes (Imshenetsky, Lysenko & Kazakov, 1978; Womack, Bohannan & Green, 2010), the electric potential increases with altitude (Wilson, 1903). Near to the Earth's surface, in fair-weather conditions, the strength of the APG is on the order of 100 V m−1, but can increase by an order of magnitude, or even invert, during certain meteorological conditions, most notably thunderstorms (Wilson, 1903; Bennett & Harrison, 2007). The APG is largely created by a potential difference between the ionosphere and the Earth's surface and is constantly maintained by the global atmospheric electric circuit, wherein thunderstorms generate electric current upwards in the atmosphere, towards the ionosphere; this current is simultaneously counteracted elsewhere on the planet in fair-weather regions by gradual currents flowing back down to the ground (Rycroft, Israelsson & Price, 2000; Rycroft et al., 2012).
It is also worth mentioning the electrical charges of atmospheric precipitation. Individual raindrops generally carry non-negligible electrostatic charges (Wilson, 1903). These charges vary in polarity, even within the same rainfall, but negative charges appear to be marginally more common (Wilson, 1903; Chalmers & Pasquill, 1938; Chauzy & Despiau, 1980; Bennett & Harrison, 2007). The magnitude of charge carried is also highly variable but is typically in the region of 0.1–1000 pC, depending on meteorological conditions and the size of the raindrop (Banerji & Lele, 1932; Chalmers & Pasquill, 1938; Smith, 1955; Chauzy & Despiau, 1980). Snowflakes and hailstones have also been shown to carry electrostatic charges (Chalmers & Pasquill, 1938; Latham, Mason & Blackett, 1961).
In the aquatic environment, a major abiotic source of electric fields is the Earth's geomagnetic field. Whilst the geomagnetic field itself is not an electric field, any time-varying magnetic field will induce an electric field (Faraday, 1832; Maxwell, 1865). Therefore, because the geomagnetic field varies spatially, when water or animals move through the geomagnetic field, this can be viewed as a temporal variation in magnetic field from the reference point of the moving object, and therefore electric currents are electromagnetically induced in the water or animal (Kalmijn, 1974). The magnitudes of these motion-induced electric fields are not negligible, with a fish moving at 1 m s−1 likely to induce electric fields as strong as 0.4 μV cm−1, and electric fields induced by water motion typically measuring around 0.05–0.25 μV cm−1 (Barber & Longuet-Higgins, 1948; Kalmijn, 1974). By the same electromagnetic principles, temporal variations in the ambient magnetic field, for example those caused by magnetic storms, will similarly induce electric fields in the Earth's crust and mantle, including the oceans (Kalmijn, 1974). These are generally referred to as telluric, or Earth currents, and in coastal or continental shelf waters (where oceanic telluric currents are at their highest), they are typically on the order of 0.01 μV cm−1 in magnitude (Kalmijn, 1974).
Research into the role of electricity in ecology has been long-standing, but is characterized by punctuated, largely isolated, islands of research.
This review provides the first collation and synthesis of these studies, and in so doing demonstrates the importance of considering electric phenomena when investigating ecological interactions.
Together, the studies published to date make clear the prevalence of electrical interactions within ecological systems, but there are large gaps in our current knowledge.
As an acknowledgment and understanding of the ubiquity of electric fields within the natural environment begins to grow within the scientific community, it is anticipated that many more aspects of electric ecology are soon to be uncovered.
The recently discovered sense of aerial electroreception provides an exciting and promising new field of research, with a plethora of species and ecologies awaiting investigation.
The electric field should be viewed and appreciated as a major driver of evolutionary adaptation within biological systems, not only at the atomic, molecular, or cellular levels, but also at the organism and ecological scales too."
This "atmospheric potential gradient" and how life interacts with it and the explanation of how the various systems of energy on earth interact and cause chain reactions in each other has set all of the ground work for this kind of theory to be plausible. Personally I truly think this is the beginning of a new understanding about life on our planet and the role energy plays in it on every level. The systems this report sets out could very well make us reconsider some old ways of thinking that we as a species had previously dismissed as superstitious nonsense.

2023.06.02 13:25 _IamDJR_ I give another chance to the albums I like the least, part 1: Origins
As title says, I'm gonna give another chance to the albums I like the least. This is the first of the the three other posts I'm going to write, as the albums I'd like to review are Origins, Evolve and Mercury Act 2.
Today I begin with Origins, not for any particular reason, but just because it's the albums I've been listening lately.
Here, I write a small review for each of the tracks and at the end I decide my final "verdict".
Also, don't take this review too seriously, as I won't go too much into technical details and I'd like to write something funny.
So, let's begin! Natural: Among the other tracks, I think Natural works well as the album opener. I truly was into this song when I first discovered ID but now it feels to me a bit formulaic and shallow in lyrics. Overall, it's not that bad, but I've just got used to that sound.
Boomerang: It's the track that opens up to the "Origins Vibe". Many other songs from this album have these syncopated drum beats. I like how they've tried to be modern by experimenting with drum samples.
Machine: That's the track I considered to be one of the "rock songs" from Imagine Dragons, but I guess that my idea of rock music has changed over the years. Rhythmically it sounds like "We Will Rock You" by Queen, and that's probably the case considering that ID have always tried to make the definitive 21st century arena rock anthem. Lyrically it's as "edgy" as other lyrics I've heard from other modern pop-rock bands like Twenty One Pilots and so on. Definitively, it's not one of my favourite from that album.
Cool Out: I'm not as a pophead as I was before, but honestly it doesn't sound that bad to me. It's not the song that can revolutionize the pop music scene, but it feels... fresh (no pun intended). The production is pretty good for this kind of pop music and the drum samples are pretty unique. I'd rather listen to this kind of music rather than a generic pop-rock song that tries to be edgy.
Bad Liar: Ah, yes. The popular one. This is the song that made me discover ID. The production is coherent to other songs from this album, and that's good. At the end, it's another self-blaming ID song with pretty lame lyrics, but I must thank this song and radio stations for making me discover this band.
West Coast: It reminds me of some acoustic songs from Avicii and I bet my life. It's ok, but it's not the strongest track from the album.
Zero: Ah, yes. The Disney one. But honesty, it's not bad! I can definitively hear some reminisces of the old post-punk revival ID in there! I also love to listen to an ID song with this high-level professional production. Perhaps I'm crazy but, probably due to the drums, it also sounds like one of those post-soviet songs but just slightly overproduced, ahah. Would I listen to this song on my own? Well, no. But it's actually a funny song!
Bullet In A Gun: This song unveils Dan Reynolds' hip-hop background. It's essentially a pop-trap beat with lyrics about celebrity issues and how people have high expectations of them. It's not that great in my opinion, but they've tried to be experimental.
Digital: I don't get what's the purpose of that song as it sounds like a demo for the Ralph Breaks the Internet soundtrack which didn't made out. I can say that it's pretty experimental and the "they been saying the same thing" bridge somehow sound like a Radiohead song from the In Rainbows era? I know it's a strech, but I can hear that they've tried to bring something unique.
Only: Like I said for Cool Out, this is another fresh pop song from Origins. I would have loved this if I found it out during my EDM phase. The production it's yet again very polished and Ben's bare ass worked out pretty well!
Stuck: Omg, how's this possible. I know it has become a cliche, but this sounds to me like another 🌈 ID Children's music song 🌈. No, I'm not crazy, take a listen to this italian children's music song and you can find out that it's virtually similar to Stuck. They're even both in F Major and 115 BPM! Please, don't mind too much, I'm just a crazy listener with weird life experiences...
Love: It's just a generic love song called... "Love". Probably that's the beginning of the cheesy ID phase in MA1 and MA2. What a unique song title, btw.
Birds: Ohh, that was my song! This is instead the song which unveils ID morbid obsession with death. The production is yet again coherent with other songs in Origins. I also like the animated music video they made for this song.
Burn Out: I love the rythm of the piano and these kind of fooley samples truly makes this album. Lyrics are also quite interesting though.
Real Life: It didn't grow up on me and it was also the hardest one to review. It's another upbeat Imagine Dragons song about loss of faith and personal relationships.
The verdict This is probably the most experimental album from Imagine Dragons along with Mercury. It's a coherent and fluid album but, although it could have been an interesting release, this kind of experimentation hasn't took off the stigma of generic radio songs that ID suffer from.
Overall, for me it's a 6/10 as there some tracks which have surprised me positively.
Next time, I'll try to reconsider Evolve and see if it's really as bad as I remember it to be. So, see you later!

2023.06.02 13:00 Evil-Ernie Rode pro tools question please
| || |
Hope this is okay please just want some help with this but, and then I think I am good to go on my own, okay, I have a NT1 5th generation and I also have a Rode A1 . Now I’ve used ProTools before on a Yamaha DM-2000 at a studio/radio radio station that I used to work out but everything changed once Covid hit so I’m trying to set up at home but I’m having trouble getting us to work how I want. Okay, I can get my NT1 5th open, running under 32 bit float. I can see it come on etc but I can’t get the play back out using the Rode A1, I can get it through the crappy laptop speakers but not the Rode A1 and I have some audio work I need to get done, love a push in tne right direction please, thank you for your time submitted by Evil-Ernie to rode [link] [comments]
