Happy experience of the RF
Today was same with before. I played the game after work. I logged in computer after work. Today was Monday. There were not many players in the game. I chose one map and walked there. It was peaceful. There would be too many people if today was weekend. I saw a jester in the game who taking a dagger. He often used it to fight with others. His clothes were different from me. I think it is must cost much rf cp. I walked toward to him. Jester was not a great character. But it is a funny character. I tried my sword to fight with him. Then I went on walking. I thought I could pick up some items I need. Then I can save some rf gold. I had to spend some money if I need some weapon or other equipment. Some of the items were expensive. What a beautiful bird it is. I saw a guy taking a bird. The bird was very beautiful. It also can protect the guy from attacking. The bird was very expensive. It might cost much rf online gold. It was hard to buy. Little character had the bird. I walked behind the character to watch the bird. I want to keep a bird very much though it was expensive.I called the supplier at once and asked them if they have bird. The customer service said they can check if there was player who has it. But they told me they could not make sure I can get the bird. No problem, I told them, but you had to try to help me. I can pay much money for it. They said they would look for the bird for me. I thought if they could get the bird for me not long time. I would buy rf money from them from now on. I went on playing game when I waited for the answer. I got nothing when I was ready to log out the game. I decided to go to sleep. I had to work tomorrow. When I went to bed for a moment, my phone rang. I got up at once. I hope it was from the game company. It was really from the game company. They told me they had found the player who had bird. He would sell it to me. So I make an order at once. I want to buy their cheap rf gold to exchange the bird. It would not be very expensive then.
Ever since we've had the technology, we've looked to the stars in search of alien life. It's assumed that we're looking because we want to find other life in the universe, but what if we're looking to make sure there isn't any?
Here's an equation, and a rather distressing one at that: N = R* × fP × ne × f1 × fi × fc × L. It's the Drake equation, and it describes the number of alien civilizations in our galaxy with whom we might be able to communicate. Its terms correspond to values such as the fraction of stars with planets, the fraction of planets on which life could emerge, the fraction of planets that can support intelligent life, and so on. Using conservative estimates, the minimum result of this equation is 20. There ought to be 20 intelligent alien civilizations in the Milky Way that we can contact and who can contact us. But there aren't any.
Frequent shopping for single items adds to our carbon footprint.
- A new study shows e-commerce sites like Amazon leave larger greenhouse gas footprints than retail stores.
- Ordering online from retail stores has an even smaller footprint than going to the store yourself.
- Greening efforts by major e-commerce sites won't curb wasteful consumer habits. Consolidating online orders can make a difference.

This is especially relevant to the "last mile" GHG footprint: the distance between the distribution center and the consumer.</p><p>Interestingly, the smallest GHG footprint occurs when you order directly from a physical store—even smaller than going there yourself. Pure players, such as Amazon, are the greatest offenders. Variables like geographic location matter; the team looked at shopping in the UK, the US, China, and the Netherlands. </p><p>Sadegh Shahmohammadi, a PhD student at the Netherlands' Radboud University and corresponding author of the paper, <a href="https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/26/tech/greenhouse-gas-emissions-retail/index.html" target="_blank">says</a> the above "pattern holds true in countries where people mostly drive. It really depends on the country and consumer behavior there."</p><p>The researchers write that this year-and-a-half long study pushes back on previous research that claims online shopping to be better in terms of GHG footprints.</p><p style="margin-left: 20px;">"They have, however, compared the GHG emissions per shopping event and did not consider the link between the retail channels and the basket size, which leads to a different conclusion than that of the current study."</p><p>Online retail is where convenience trumps environment: people tend to order one item at a time when shopping on pure player sites, whereas they stock up on multiple items when visiting a store. Consumers will sometimes order a number of separate items over the course of a week rather than making one trip to purchase everything they need. </p><p>While greening efforts by online retailers are important, until a shift in consumer attitude changes, the current carbon footprint will be a hard obstacle to overcome. Amazon is trying to have it both ways—carbon-free and convenience addicted—and the math isn't adding up. If you need to order things, do it online, but try to consolidate your purchases as much as possible.</p><p>--</p><p><em>Stay in touch with Derek on <a href="http://www.twitter.com/derekberes" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, <a href="https://www.facebook.com/DerekBeresdotcom" target="_blank">Facebook</a> and <a href="https://derekberes.substack.com/" target="_blank">Substack</a>.
