Jeffrey C. "TimeHorse" Jacobs is a Computer Programmer, a failed Physicist and drives an electric car around the Mid-Atlantic. He assists two local writing groups, a Doctor Who club, participates in EV events and created and produces Project Kronosphere.

I try to read about 20 Science Books a year as audio books during my 1,500 mi (2,400 km) per month I spend on the road at a cost of $25 in fuel. I'm part of two Washington, DC based book clubs, the Bowie Bevy of Brainy Books and the Science Book Club meetups and I also maintain a presence for them as a group on GoodReads so you can see what we're reading.

Fans? I ain't got no stinkin' fans! But I do have the absolute best of friends and if any of them are authors, you best be fans of them too

Elizabeth Kolbert shared a note and highlight from
The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
It doesn’t much matter whether people care or don’t care. What matters is that people change the world.
The ending of The Sixth Extinction is the jumping off point for my new book, UNDER A WHITE SKY. I hope you’ll read that, too! https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/54814834-under-a-white-sky

The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
“Suci did not ovulate,” Roth announced to the half-dozen zookeepers who had gathered around to help. By this point, her entire arm had disappeared inside the rhino.
Sadly, not long after I visited the Cincinnati Zoo, Ipuh died. Then, not long after that, Suci, too, died, from a disease known as hemochromatosis, which was probably hereditary. (Her mother, Emi, had also died from this.) At that point, there was just one Sumatran rhino left in the U.S., Suci’s brother, Harapan, who had spent most of his life at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Harapan has since been moved to a rhino reserve in Indonesia, where it’s hoped that he will eventually sire a calf. The situation for Sumatran rhinos remains dire.

The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
By the official count, there are something like thirteen hundred species of birds in the Amazon, but Cohn-Haft thinks there are actually a good many more, because people have relied too much on features like size and plumage and not paid enough attention to sound.
Not long after I I met up with Mario Cohn-Haft in Manaus, a team of researchers he was part of announced that it had found 15 new species of birds in the Amazon, including the crooked-beaked woodcreeper, which has a beak shaped like a dough hook, and the flat-beaked sucunduri, a small, greenish flycatcher.
