For new readers, this collection of “missing links” rounds up fascinating stuff I find around the internet, and appears every Saturday. It’s separated into Top Picks (the best stuff), Science/News/Writing (science writing), Heh/Wow/Huh (silliness, satire, photos, videos), and Journalism/Internet/Society (a miscellany of my other interests). If links are broken, let me know in the comments. Top picks
Convidado para um trabalho com ayuhasca na casa do irmão Aurimar , aprendi que quando a pessoa sente frio é porque o elemental da ayuhasca está num processo de cura; quando sente calor, é porque o processo é de ensinamento. Segundo Aurimar, a ayuhasca tem o poder de expurgar substâncias tóxicas que eventualmente transitem pelo sangue, através do vômito ou da evacuação. Antes de iniciar o trabalho, que foi das 22h às 5h40, Aurimar explicou que não não é correto misturar ayuhasca com drogas e citou o estatuto original do Daime que veta explicitamente o uso de diversas substâncias, entre as quais maconha, cocaína, morfina, lsd, dentre outras. Durante o trabalho, sem cessar, músicas se sucedem: hinários da Santa Maria da Conceição, lounges com influência tribal, músicas em sânscrito... As letras das músicas referem-se à harmonia com a natureza, ao processo de auto-conhecimento, homenagens a mestres como Jesus, Buda, Krisna. Experiência pessoal
Ao que parece, esta casa é de verdade. Não se trata de um cenário. Ela pertence a um executivo da própria Rede Globo. Destaque para as luminarias baseadas no sistema solar. Grandes áreas envidraçadas permitem a franca entrada da luz, que poupa energia. As árvores ao redor provêem boas áreas de sombra, mantendo a casa fresca no verão.

Climate change is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for--and in many cases is already affecting--a broad range of human and natural systems. The compelling case for these conclusions is provided in Advancing the Science of Climate Change , part of a congressionally requested suite of studies known as America's Climate Choices. While noting that there is always more to learn and that the scientific process is never closed, the book shows that hypotheses about climate change are supported by multiple lines of evidence and have stood firm in the face of serious debate and careful evaluation of alternative explanations. As decision makers respond to these risks, the nation's scientific enterprise can contribute through research that improves understanding of the causes and consequences of climate change and also is useful to decision makers at the local, regional, national, and international levels.
30 September 2010 Climate change continues to be a subject of intense public and political debate. Because of the level of interest in the topic the Royal Society has produced a new guide to the science of climate change.
BREAKER is a 12-week program that mobilizes interdisciplinary teams of young, creative collaborators to design solutions to big challenges – in this case, Urban Agriculture. Community gardens, local organic farming, and rooftop farms are a more prevalent part of our lives as we become more conscious of the food industry’s impact on our health, the economy, and the environment. So far, these gardens and farms have been wonderful sources for connecting people to food and to each other, but their impact remains small-scale, benefiting those who can afford to pay a premium for fresh food. Beginning in January, our team of fifteen 18-24 year-olds will collaborate with Majora Carter and a variety of industry experts to create a product or service that envisions a scalable, affordable role for urban agriculture within a broader ecosystem of food and agricultural consumption.
Deep Green Resistance is for those who can’t wait anymore. This is the question: Are you willing to accept the only strategy left to us? Are you willing to set aside your last, fierce dream of that brave uprising of millions strong? I know what I am asking.
“The world is sweet and verdant green, and Allah appoints you to be His regents in it, and will see how you acquit yourselves…” quoted from , by Harfiyah Abdel Haleem (ed), London: Ta-Ha Publishers, 1998 "God is in the water of the lake; he is also in the cracked bed of the lake, when the lake has dried up. God is in the abundant harvest; he is also in the famine that occurs when the harvest fails. God is in the lightning; he is also in the darkness, when the lightning has faded... Brothers and sisters, you pile up stones to make shrines, imagining that God will make himself present there. Then you are surprised when these shrines do not ease your cares and worries."
