  • Vlog 14: Sand and Water - Wind, Noisy! (5K Walk)

    A walk on the beach on a very windy day in search of some solitude. Sorry for so much noise - I tried to cover the microphone on my phone, but it did not help a bit.

  • Trader Joe's, Orange County

    I shop in Trader Joe's not that often, but in this video I like to share with you my favorite things in it, and the way I make my rather frugal decisions. 

  • Vlog 11: Night and Morning in Missourri

    Random visuals from my days: traveling USA, Kansas City, Missouri, soap and shampoo not tested on animals.

  • Vlog 12: Driving in Kansas City

    The last vlog from Missouri or Kansas. Houses, one with a truck in it, another one with an airplane on top.

  • Vlog 13: A Weekday Eve

    Late afternoon till evening: shopping for seeds, getting gasoline, driving and walking home from a German business lesson, eating raw Spanish peanuts and oranges with news in German, my colorful lamp, painting stuff (some fine art talk, belongs to my life).

  • In a Shopping Mall - Wool? Leather? Down?

    Searching for and buying male pants in a local shopping mall in California, looking for options for vegan belts, shoes, and clothing. It took us 4 hours to find a model of cotton khakis that matches two people (they needed the same look).

    Down is harvested as a byproduct of the meat industry, geese and ducks are raised for slaughter. But there’s an economic temptation to live-pluck the birds. The plucking of live birds become rare nowadays,  and is against the law in the US and in several European countries. But live-plucking ducks and geese still practiced at factory farms in China, Poland and Hungary.

  • Vlog 1: Not a River (5K Walk)

    The first lifestyle vlog by Lena.

  • 13K Walk / Run - Construction

    The second lifestyle vlog by Lena, a European vegan fruitarian in California: avoiding construction, trying to vlog while exercising.

  • Vlog 3: Walls (12K Walk)

    Lena's vlog from California - not only pretty things: how regular people live, what fruit trees grow in Orange County, and schools.

  • Vlog 4: Hi! (Who am I?)

    This is how I look.

Plutarch

But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy.

Viruses

A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea. 

There are millions types of viruses, ~ 5,000 virus species have been described in detail. Viruses are found in almost every ecosystem and are the most abundant type of biological entity. The origins of viruses in the evolutionary history of life are unclear. 

While not inside an infected cell or in the process of infecting a cell, viruses exist in the form of independent particles, virions, which consist of the genetic material made from either DNA or RNA, a protein coat, and in some cases an outer coat of lipids. Virion is about one one-hundredth the size of a bacterium.
