Having spent my life in advertising and marketing, I often wonder if a world without billboards, annoying commercials and ads on anything that can be covered with some insidious manipulation of the truth would be a relief. Our view of what is important to a quality life is a twisted, narcissistic display of our core values. You think it is freedom, but take a look at Times Square and ask yourself if this is what John Adams had in mind?

Y/n looked down at her outfit and bit her lip for a moment, trying to decide whether she should change out of her maroon sweater and grey leggings.

With the substantial number of lake sediment 18O records published in recent decades, a quantitative, process based understanding of these systems can increase our understanding of past climate change. We test mass balance models of lake water 18O variability against five years of monthly monitoring data from lakes with different hydrological characteristics, in the East Midlands region of the UK, and the local isotope composition of precipitation. These mass balance models can explain up to 74% of the measured lake water isotope variability.
