Are there still as many 'reservations' as there were?  Or have they gradually been phased out?  I'd love to know.

I figure this question of mine must be too difficult for the massed bonces of IA members.  After all, it had lurked unanswered for a couple of months.  So I set out to find the answer myself.  And it wasn't difficult.  In fact it was child's play to answer.

Just a quick google.  First I googled a question of mine that had lain unanswered in a dusty corner of IA for even longer. Then a very short scroll down Wiki's answer.  And there it was in black and white....

So, what did I finf?  How many reservations are there for ‘Red Indians’ still in America?

"Each of the 326 Indian reservations in the United States is associated with a particular Native American nation. Not all of the country's 567 recognized tribes have a reservation—some tribes have more than one reservation, while some share reservations.

And these cover "56,200,000 acres (22,700,000 hectares) or 87,800 sq miles (227,000 square kilometres)"
which as we all know is approximately the size of Idaho.

That answer is a bit surprising with 326 reservations, shared among 567 tribes - It's an interesting Wiki page, and one with more related info than you can shake a Mensa badge at.  I'd say it's well worth a butcher's.

Just wondering.

Consumer affairs / Has Britain ever issued a £2 note?
« Last post by P-Kasso2 on 14 June, 2019, 09:11:21 AM »
I have a friend who is adamant that the Bank of England issued £2 notes sometime in the 18th Century or thereabouts.

I say, equally pig-headedly "Oh no there there wasn't".

Who wins this battle of stubbornness?

I'd also add Barack Obama to the list. He's a true statesman. There has been no dirt flinging, shady past. He conducted himself well, eloquent, dealt with problems rationally.....

Agreed! Barack Obama actually looks and feels exactly like my idea of what a world leader should be. Wonder what he's doing now?

Unlike Trump who seems to forget that almost everyone in USA is a foreigner or descended from foreigners! Including him and his wife.
Anyone who can say if teachers carried guns it would stop mass shootings must be a bit twp..(as we say in Wales) All he seems to do is incite hatred among his red neck followers.

Technology / How difficult would it be to bypass the Bluetooth of a device?
« Last post by Cosmos on 06 June, 2019, 12:42:51 AM »
If you wanted to use Bluetooth speakers it would presumably be relatively easy to bypass the Bluetooth circuitry . What about something like a security camera?

I didn't ask that .

Never mind, I enjoyed it and thought it made an interesting read.

But back to your question on Paternal Age at conception etc for a moment.   I fear you might be seeking itemized info which simply doesn't exist (yet).

Nevertheless, I sharpened my shovel and, undeterred, dug some more.  I did find one website that discusses your required themes - ie the risks involved with conception by fathers in later life.

It is the US National Library for Medicine's website... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3854059/

Maybe give it a try, Cosmos?  Among other things, it says that while the median age for paternal conception in the US is 27, the most frequently used cutoff is 40 - But (and here's the crunch) "...paternal information is often missing from the birth certificate and the age of the father is not even reported in 14% of all births."

"So there currently exists a need for improved data collection, guidelines and outcome research based for Advanced Paternal Age."


Dr. Wyrobek, a senior staff scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, said that an immense amount of work still remained to be done. 

"There are more than 30,000 genes and we've only measured the effects (of advancing paternal age) on ...two of them in sperm," he said. "Many gene mutations in sperm can cause genetic diseases in children, and these still need to be measured in older men, but we don't have the tools yet."

That probably goes a long way to explaining why I couldn't find any specific websites dealing with the father's increasing age at conception and the increasing risks of Alzheimer's in the infant in later life.

Maybe there will be more info in ten years time when the measuring tools will be in place?
