    Of minor interest, the old program has merged with a couple others that are taking a more focused approach to the research.  "randomly selected" grids for monitoring to get a sample size.

    The good:  There appears to be a very deliberate attempt to evenly distribute the grid across the country. 

    The bad:  It appears to have a very high bias towards areas near universities and existing wildlife refuges (at least in Utah)  (though there are a very few that are rather remote)

    I've never seen the north/south split in the eastern monarchs before, as shown on the map.  No rationale presented why they delineate those.

    Time dilates as the speed of light approaches. To the extent that light consists of particles, it is in its own way, timeless. Through simple perturbations of the temporal manifold, we can refract or repel photons most efficiently.
