Universities and museums join in effort to ‘scan all vertebrates’ — TechCrunch

It seems that even scientific endeavors fall victim to feature creep — or in the case of an effort to scan all fishes that has expanded to include all vertebrates, creature creep. More than a dozen learning institutions are pooling their resources to create detailed 3D scans, inside and out, of more than 20,000 animals.…

# 1 Present Future

(c) Terry Floyd Johnson, 2017  ( Zoua; the OutRyder )

In the Universe, there is one prediction that can be made, where there is a government, there will be offences against the population.

In the United States, it’s Trump and his hooligans, who want to get all the wealth of the country, and then become like North Korea, and create a scarecrow government, where the populace doesn’t matter; they must be controlled by death, torture and starvation.

Trump and his hooligans, North Korea, China, England, France, Russia, and others- are all guilty of crimes against the populace, and as such, will cease to exist in the near or immediate future.

North Korea will be first, as its leadership are cruel monsters, who have starved their populace for decades, now they will reap what they have sewn.

The U.S., Trump and his hooligans, have started a backward movement in the keeping of the U.S. populace safe, and ignoring or editing scientific papers, for political purposes, as did the Clinton administration; Russia, for murder, torture, etc.; China for murder, torture, imprisonment without cause, and genocide; Britain for 1984 security measures, which are being misused, thus they are a crime against the populace; France, again stringent and self-dealing laws and orders; Mexico, murder, genocide, criminal edifications; Brazil/Argentina, Chile, and more.

They have all been found Guilty, and the governments will be removed, and this nation against nation warfare, trade wars, etc., are over.

We are all terrans, one populace, with many diverse peoples, who are citizens of Terra, not of nations, but of a planet, our planet- Earth. One leadership, for the populace, and the betterment of life for all.

Who will do this? Justice!
