The only problem is the Sargassum grows where pollution accumulates and they are too far away from the turtle scientists who can protect them. They will eat plastics and tar balls because they mistake these things for food. Many baby turtles get killed from eating bad things.

43rd Annual Turtle and Tortoise Show, Saturday, June 3, 2016 —

Florida beaches account for one third of the world's total population of loggerheads.

One example is the ordinary wart.

I wrote my way sequentially from Kedit file to Kedit file from the beginning to the end of the piece. Some of those files created by Structur could be quite long. So each one in turn needed sorting on its own, and sometimes fell into largish parts that needed even more sorting. In such phases, Structur would have been counterproductive. It would have multiplied the number of named files, choked the directory, and sent the writer back to the picnic table, and perhaps under it. So Howard wrote Alpha. Alpha implodes the notes it works on. It doesn’t create anything new. It reads codes and then churns a file internally, organizing it in segments in the order in which they are meant to contribute to the writing.

These tumors can infect all soft portions of a turtle's body.

In his preface the author writes:

Josephine Arnold, a long-time member and familiar face at the Annual Turtle and Tortoise Shows, passed away suddenly on Sunday, April 14, 2013.

The disease is as tragic as any cancer.

Not everything used as money as all the functions listed above. Furthermore the functions of any particular form of money may change over time. As Glyn Davies points out on page 28:

Green sea turtles develop fibropapillomas that appear as lobe-shaped tumors.

The lesions are small at first, but they can grow to 10 cm or more in diameter.

One of Glyn Davies's main motives for writing the book was that, as he writes in his preface Furthermore he is of the opinion that economists, especially monetarists, tend to overestimate the purely economic, narrow and technical functions of money and have placed insufficient emphasis on its wider social, institutional and psychological aspects.

Within a year, these white spots usually developed into full blown tumors.

( is a graphic example.) In adults, the disease is less predictable.

All sorts of things have been used as money at different times in different places. The alphabetical list below, taken from page 27 of , includes but a minute proportion of the enormous variety of primitive moneys, and none of the modern forms.
