TFP should be in the art section. Protein folding is based on hexagons and is very complex. Glycine and proline are the main reasons why folding is so hard to figure out. My work shows that if you twist the protein hard enough, you will see all the motifs. The problem is that the two problem aminos run off some type of quantum scales.

Just a symptom of humans in the early stages of evolution. Illegal immigration leads to a form of slavery. Legal immigration eventually ends racism. If MTV promoted sheep raping to the normally sexually confused youth the way they promoted gay life, things would be much different. Most of the issues we face can be solved by understanding that humans are not yet an intelligent species. If population size is relative to intelligence we need another 7 billion.

The heat comes from the carbon that falls into the ocean. The carbon stays near the surface and is warmed by photons. Usually a photon will penetrate the surface and release its energy 3 meters below the surface. The warm surface moves to the poles and drags the warm upper atmosphere with it. The warm atmosphere moves to the arctic and disrupts the polar vortex and jetstream. Last winter was a prime example of warm air from the pacific moving into the arctic.

All the evidence concerning the universe has not yet been collected, so there's still hope.
