OECD Factblog: http://scout.wisc.edu/Archives/SPT--FullRecord.php?ResourceId=27893

Two more links for your perusal

First, a digital poster of the discretionary budget of the US. The circles are scaled, so that the 600 billion dollar Dept. of Defense budget is visibly much bigger than the meager 6 billion dollar Dept. of Ed. budget.

Second, we have a site that uses computer generated climate models to look at future trends as well as our impact on future trends. As they say at the opening…

Single link

The US Government Printing Office just sent this out on the FDLP (Federal Depository Library Program) listserv: http://www.gpo.gov/pdfs/news-media/press/10news12.pdf

It a set of links to all of the wording of the now-(in)famous healthcare bill as well as the debate surrounding it, and the vote.

Pedometer generator

I just saw a photo by TJ Roshan on a human-powered dynamo. One that generates electricity by walking: http://www.urgentevoke.com/photo/human-dynamo-how-energy-from-1?xg_source=activity

Thanks for the link to the journal! I wrote a blog on this already, called Using Plants as Allies. We're in the process of planting a wh*** beneficial insect garden that wraps around our veggie gardens to attract hoverflies, lady beetles, dragonflies, parasitic wasps, and ground beetles.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
