What could be on this web page?

Features identified so far for this Computers in Geology gateway page, in order of position:

  1. a ribbon of favorite icons for PPE suppliers
  2. autotrophic organisms for the #gateway.
  3. Keeping to the theme of HTML5 and geophysics processing, ornamenting this webpage is the clock example from the Canvas tutorial of so as to give an example dashboard for reductions from a remote embedded sensor as promoted on the website. These <canvas /> clocks for the #toy indicate a Tricorder on Raspberry Pi or other single-board computer using an electronic ink display such as a solar-powered sandwich board at a heritage site.
  4. List of Suppliers to be brought across from the Community web page
  5. .

What will not be here is safety infrastructure and equipment that is not particulary PPE, plus more extended use of SVG and HTML5 examples, which includes:

A cladogenesis in espalier with HTML5

The Wikimedia database of commons has a series of SVG drawings of biological prototypes. These are in Scalable Vector Graphics format which is part of the HTML5 standard. Alternatively, the Microsoft search engine Bing automatically generates consistent thumbnail raster images of book covers which give an emotional response (at least for the cutural hegemony of the focus group selected). Both are served by cloud-based system architecture and it will be interesting to see comparison of performance. I include these SVG and PNG files within a diagram to show bacterial production of peptides and the subsequent hydrocarbon minerals, in an evolutionary setting:

In the lattice-form cladogram of Table 1, clades are tangled along the baseline and then ranged out, to give axes of age versus cellular function. A legend and nomogram are contained in Table 2 with subjects demonstrated as:

Msd anomalous diffusion

Mean squared displacement for different types of anomalous diffusion. Of these subdiffusion has been proposed as a measure of macromolecular crowding in the cytoplasm. As such it is an adjunct to the work of John Elliston and exploration geologists in Australia who have found there is certain low temperature accumulation of minerals in colloids. In several articles they have explained the paragenesis of mineral systems before life, and a parallel treatment could indicate the paragenesis of hydrocarbon-rich geofluids in younger rocks.

Viable but nonculturable (VBNC) bacteria refers to bacteria that are in a state of very low metabolic activity and do not divide, but are alive and have the ability to become culturable once resuscitated. The cells that are in the VBNC state are morphologically smaller, and demonstrate reduced nutrient transport, rate of respiration, and synthesis of macromolecules.Sometimes, VBNC bacteria can remain in that state for over a year.

A Gram-negative bacterial flagellum
A flagellum (plural: flagella) is a long, slender projection from the cell body, whose function may be
propel a unicellular or small multicellular organism. The depicted type of flagellum is found in bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella, and rotates like a propeller when the bacterium swims. The bacterial movement can be divided into 2 kinds: run, resulting from a counterclockwise rotation of the flagellum, and tumbling, from a clockwise rotation of the flagellum.
sensor with the rings of the base being very similar to needle-complex rings, although the existence of a C-ring in the needle complex has not been proven. The flagellar hook is homologous to the T3SS needle

A holological approach to microrganisms

this is the science basis to the economic discussion in the whitepaper GENATYPE: fact, fiction, fantasy or ASX-listing linked in the bibliography

For the framework for the cosmogony on the left of Table 1 I rely on Vicky Balabanski and Norman Habel presenting Unravelling the Mysteries of Colossians with First Peoples and Ways of Handling Dangerous Doctrines With the Help of First Peoples respectively at the Perspectives on being Progressive series of the Seminary of the Third Age. The arrangement of the species lists on the right of the Table 1 is a concoction of phylogony and genetics taken from Wikipedia. The readings in Wikipedia use other terms to those found in the Dictionary of Geological Terms which are used for the figures in Table 1 and Table 2, in particular:

The term holobiont has been applied to a community of fungi, bacteria and algae.
The term mucus, as a particular holocoen of principally animal or plant enzymes, with algae, fungi and lesser amounts of bacteria, is not in the Dictionary of Geological Terms. I rely on this definition for either plants or animals:
mucus 1. a slimy substance secreted by the mucous membranes and glands of animals for lubrication, protection, etc. 2. mucilage from plants Concise Oxford English Dictionary
The term plaque, as a particular holocoen of fungi and bacteria, is not in the Dictionary of Geological Terms. I prefer this definition:
plaque… a sticky deposit on teeth in which bacteria proliferate … Concise Oxford English Dictionary
I originally thought of the term farm for a community where there are plant/animal enzymes with fungi and lesser numbers of bacteria.

show processes which preserve homeostasis

For me Table 2 can show processes which preserve homeostasis by passing from one adjacent biofilm to another. These are not always pleasantly bucolic, especially "poisoning by Conotoxin", but they are regular features of the ecosystem. There are only a few processes listed here, but all the lagoons featured in my Soar desktop (click on the Refresh button a couple of times to wake up the Soar server) could be transcribed in this manner.

Darren Smith wrote "You might remember that I created a subdomain for you that would serve a hobbyist who wants to give a geospatial context to their imagery. The subdomains are served by our Soar Plus subscription plan. Currently to own a subdomain it costs $250/month, formerly it was $50/month. You can continue to use this to house geospatial images related to your social media posts. … On another note, we're now reselling SuperView high resolution satellite imagery for only $6/sq km. I don't know that you're in need of this type of image but perhaps you have contacts that can use it? I would be keen to know.".

Alternative dryland images in Table 3 are shown on the demonstration sub-domains Darren Smith set up for me on the website.

poisoning by Conotoxin
as for "the storage of Conotoxin" below then:
  1. expelled radula has a plaque of Conotoxin.
  2. Conotoxin is discharged into host tissue in the manner of coral
In that tissue,
  1. the α1 adrenogenic receptors are blocked by the introduced conopetide, and
  2. no G-proteins are generated to signal "fight or flight" to the immediate biological system.

infer processes for epidemics

In addition Table 2 can infer processes which create epidemics, though this can be useful to the host organism like "the storage of Conotoxin". Whereas this section is usually considered to include [accidental] poisoning as by neurotoxins like

Humpage et al. ... postulated that Cylindrospermopsin (or a metabolite) acts on either the spindle or centromeres during cell division, inducing loss of whole chromosomes. after Wikipedia
the storage of Conotoxin
Generation of the conopeptide:
  1. into the mucus of the gland of the Conus sp.
  2. adherence as plaque to the chiton of the snail's radula
coral bleaching
The transposition of organisms from soil-coral as in The Great Barrier Reef:
  1. soil on dairies and sugar plantations of Queensland and New South Wales
  2. transport of supended mineral and biological matter, by the flooding rivers of the Great Dividing Range into the long shore drift of the eastern Australia coastline
  3. and then filtered into the coral of the Great Barrier Reef
Coral Reefs in Japan
The transposition of organisms from soil-holocoen-mucus-coral as for the reefs of Ishigaki Island, assuming an annual cycle (that is Typhoon-driven):
  1. Typhoon derived rainfall, in northern monsoon season
  2. Rivers from the northern part of Ishigaki coral reef, originate from an agricultural watershed
  3. In response to changed environmental stress, bacteria like V. shiloi go into VBNC state
  4. red soil derived turbid seawater in Okinawa, Ishigaki, and Iriomote coral reef seawater (holocoen)
  5. If the period is less than about a year, and in response to changed environmental conditions, bacteria like V. shiloi revive from the VBNC state.
  6. well-developed fringing corals with a variety of mangroves and sandy or rocky shores
corals provide three habitats for bacteria, each of which harbors a distinct bacterial population:
  1. the surface mucus layer
  2. coral tissue
  3. calcium carbonate skeleton
The occurrences of coral vibriosis, a well-known disease, are greatly influenced by increasing seawater temperature. In particular, at warm temperatures, V. shiloi:
  1. expresses a cell-surface adhesion protein that is required for bacterial attachment to the coral surface
  2. simultaneously expresses a. Toxin-P that ultimately inhibits photosynthesis of the coral-endosymbiotic algae and b. super-oxide dismutase required for survival of this pathogen inside the coral tissue
Palm Island Mystery Disease
In a possible alternative to the circumstances of the section An apple from the Tree of Life causes wild child pregnancy in GENOTYPE: fact, fiction, fantasy or ASX-listing; but this time it is the toxins produced from the micro-organisms in a stromatolite-soil transposition:
  1. stromatolite (algal mats) containing genus Anabaena, and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, on the Solomon Dam, Palm Island, Queensland in 1979
  2. the addition of copper sulphate to the reservoir results in the Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii releasing the neurotoxin Cylindrospermopsin into the water
  3. The reservoir water was ingested (soil) by the local population
  4. 138 children were admitted to hospital, suffering various symptoms of gastroenteritis
Circumstances repeated similarly in
  • 1991, December algal bloom on Lower Murray Darling Basin
  • 1997, unk. bloom of C. raciborskii in Townsville, Australia on an aquaculture pond containing Redclaw crayfish, along with a population of Lake Eacham Rainbowfish, indicating that this toxin is also absorbed into the tissues by direct uptake of the toxin in solution.
  • 1997, August, with three cows and ten calves dying from cylindrospermopsin poisoning on a farm in northwest Queensland with a nearby dam containing an algal bloom which showed C. raciborskii.
vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus
VCE is the target for the automatic testing by Adelade company LBT Innovations. The company produces a system which can reject a thousand Petri dishes per day, making it ideal for monitoring water quality in brine lagoons. The genus Enterococcus has intrinsic resistance to lactic acid derived antibiotics. The epidemic, ultimately forming a biofilm in the urinary tract is:
  1. innoculation from soil via manipulation and breastfeeding
  2. Enteroccus sp. passes through gullet as soil
  3. enters mucus (diverticulitis, prostatitis, peritonitis) or the holocoen of the urinary tract (cystitis and pyelonephritis)
  4. in the most severe cases the bacteria forms a biofilm lining the gland tissue
The competence of the Enterococcus sp. in a holocoen is indicated by the claim in Wikipedia that the Environmental Protection Agency (USA) is now using it to place the faecal coliform test for saltwater beaches. My reading of the gazettal, is that the EPA persists with Enterococci sp. as an indicator in freshwater beaches rather than relying on the Escherichia coli test alone. Regardless of the details:
… These organisms generally do not cause illness directly, but have demonstrated characteristics that make them good indicators of fecal contamination and thus the potential presence of pathogens capable of causing human illnesses such as gastroenteritis. … B. 1986 Ambient Water Quality Criteria for Bacteria in Federal Register 69 FR 67217

A science agenda for theological discussion of cosmogony

Crisis which fused two Homonid chromosomes to initiate the Homo genus

see the section "An apple from the Tree of Life causes wild child pregnancy" in the draft article GENOTYPE: Fact, Fiction, Fantasy or ASX-listing? link to be in the bibliography

Was Darwin so engrossed in the soap opera written by Owens and Huxley that he forgot the Fount of All Knowledge? Did the apple from the Tree of Life cause the crisis which fused two Homonid chromosomes to initiate the Homo genus? Is Eve the homeopath you could recommend to your friends? At the God of Wisdom talk of the Seminary of the 3rd Age in Adelaide at the October 2019 series The Interpretation Factor - Are the big themes still relevant today?, I was asked a serious question with regard to my work as a scientist. It was What had I considered to be the Tree of Life and the apple taken by Eve. This can be a personal question too, as I see from the webpage that this can be a totem, with the listing of myths at:

You may have considered the Paleogene-Neogene boundary shown diagramatically on the Heritage page of the Geoscience Gateway. It has been sometime since I read the complete comparative mythology series of Joseph Campbell but I think he introduced the idea that the Tree of Life (and there were probably several) were colonies of Hydrazoa that barred a stream within a mangrove swamp. The apple was the daughter Hydra, a baubon on the side of the stalk (shown above) which was eaten possibly deliberately to kill off a guinea worm infestation and the resulting poisoning was so severe it caused the primate to give birth to a child with a fused Chromosome 2 giving 23 pairs rather than 24 of the other Hominadae (i.e. great apes like Pongo sp., Pan sp. Gorilla sp. + others unknown), so the Homo genus was evolved from the crisis.
