A Giant Forest Ant (Dinomyrmex gigas) spotted at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, on 24 Jan 2021. Judging from the size of its mandibles, this may be a Major Worker (Soldier), according to this link [ wiki.nus.edu.sg/display/TAX/Di ].

As its name suggests, this is one of the largest ants found in South-east Asia. This one was larger than my thumbnail.

Imagine an algae moving in and turning your flesh green, stunting your growth. Some unfortunate mussels catch parasitic Coccomyxa algae, causing them to develop unusually bent shell openings due the algae accelerating their growth! Pic from Zuykov et al., 2020 sciencedirect.com/science/arti

Stars greater than 8 times the mass of the Sun die spectacularly in a supernova explosion. What's left is a nebula known as a supernova remnant. This is M1 the remnant of a star seen to explode in 1054. As M1 is ~6000ly away, the explosion actually happened 6000 years earlier.

Now that #mainstream discovered #Signal, it is time to start pushing @briar . Digital human rights activist's job is never done!

That being said, there are hurdles with #Briar that make it somewhat hard to get more people using it. A big one is lack of #iOS client, which is *not easy* to fix:
