The Blue-Ringed Octopus

Marauding the tide pools and coral reefs of the Pacific and Indian oceans, from Japan to Australia, you will find one of the world's most venomous animals; the Blue Ringed Octopus. With excellent eyesight this nocturnal hunter captures shrimp, fish, and hermit crabs, then paralyses them while they bore into and consume their meal with sharp beaks. Despite its relatively small size, their blue ringed octopus comes packed with enough poison to kill twenty-six, full-grown humans. Their bites are usually small and painless, and people often do not know they have been poisoned up until the toxins take effect. To date, there is no known antitoxin to the Blue Ringed octopus' venom. ............................................................................... #science #earth #nature #animals #education

World leaders are coming forward to blast Twitter’s suspension of President Trump’s account, with many of them calling it outright censorship and a decision that should be left up to the citizens and not a private tech company. "...there should be a 'public framework of regulation' in which social media platforms can argue that some content violates the law and it should be removed or fines paid, but that should be decided by citizens and legislatures" “The regulation of digital giants cannot be done by the digital oligarchy itself” “A court of censorship like the Inquisition to manage public opinion: this is really serious” “A world where Maduro is on social media, but Trump is suspended cannot be normal" https://nypost.com/2021/01/12/merkel-world-leaders-speak-out-against-trumps-twitter-ban/ ................................................................................................. #technology #bigtech #censorship #socialmedia #news

Lots of new folks with new channels here on Minds. Sadly however, Minds for whatever reason has taken the official Help and Support group down. The MCOSI has inquired as to what the story is, but have received no response. In the meantime fear not! I have made sure that the Minds User Group is staffed to handle the extra load. So, feel free to swing by the Minds User Group. We'll have you running Minds like a poweruser in 3 shakes of a lamb's tail :) https://www.minds.com/groups/profile/773612857802629140 .......................................................................................... #mindsusergroup #mcosi #minds #Helpandsupport
