Ways to use Hydrogen Peroxide in the Garden. The benefits of hydrogen peroxide for a garden can be useful for any kind of a garden, and any method of gardening. Peroxide is great for plants that are planted in the ground, and it’s also great for plants in containers -- it is useful in hydroponic gardens, raised beds, and greenhouses. Similarly, peroxide for gardening applies well with all kinds of plants: a rose garden, herb garden, vegetable garden, orchard, shade trees, flower garden or lawn -- any or all of these would benefit from hydrogen peroxide. Peroxide works by releasing oxygen.

It acts as an oxygen supplement for plants. It seems to really support both good health and strong growth for plants. Hydrogen peroxide can also help with soil fungus: it aerates the soil, and it is anti-fungal. Ways to use peroxide in the garden General fertilizer, either in plant water or sprayed on foliage.

Miguel León-Portilla | Honorary Degrees | CSU. Professor Miguel León-Portilla is the foremost scholar on the language and culture of the Nahua people, also known as Aztecs, who had a well-established and distinguished civilization in Mexico long before the Spanish arrived in the early 16th century. With probing intelligence, lifelong perseverance, political savvy and humanistic compassion, Dr. León-Portilla has brought "visions of the vanquished" to the forefront of scholarly consideration and public interest, resulting in a nascent understanding of the rich and vibrant culture of indigenous Mexican people from a perspective that amplifies and respects their voices.

Dr. León-Portilla's academic career spans half a century. In 1949, with Angel Maria Garibay, Dr. He has contributed to periodicals in Mexico, Belgium, France and the United States. In 1994, his university presented Dr. Miguel León-Portilla. Miguel León-Portilla (born in Mexico City, February 22, 1926) is a Mexican anthropologist and historian, and a prime authority on Nahuatl thought and literature.[1] Career[edit] He wrote a doctoral thesis on Nahua philosophy under the tutelage of Fr.

Ángel María Garibay K., another notable researcher and translator of primary Nahuatl source documents whose publications in the 1930s and 1940s first brought Nahuatl literature to widespread public attention. Continuing with Garibay's work, León-Portilla established his renown through translating, interpreting and publishing several recompilations of Nahuatl works. León-Portilla has spearheaded a movement to understand and reevaluate Nahuatl literature, not only from the pre-Columbian era, but also that of the present day – Nahuatl is still spoken by 1.5 million people.[1] He has contributed to establishing bilingual education in rural Mexico.

León-Portilla was also instrumental in bringing to light the works of Fr. References[edit] Aztec thought and culture: a study of the ancient Nahuatl mind - Miguel León-Portilla. Tlamatini. The famous Nahuatl language translator and interpreter Miguel León-Portilla refers to the tlamatini as philosophers and they are the subject of his book Aztec Thought and Culture. [citation needed][1] Notes[edit] Jump up ^ Aztec Thought and Culture, page 120 References[edit] Nezahualcoyotl. Nezahualcoyotl (Classical Nahuatl: Nezahualcoyōtl, He is best remembered for his poetry, but according to accounts by his descendants and biographers, Fernando de Alva Cortés Ixtlilxochitl and Juan Bautista de Pomar, he had an experience of an "Unknown, Unknowable Lord of Everywhere" to whom he built an entirely empty temple in which no blood sacrifices of any kind were allowed — not even those of animals. However, he allowed human sacrifices to continue in his other temples.

Early life[edit] The reconquest of Texcoco[edit] The campaign was divided into three parts. One army attacked Acolman to the north and the second Coatlinchan to the south. A contingent led by Nezahualcoyotl himself was intended to attack Acolhuacan, only after providing support, upon request, to the first two armies. Achievements[edit] Monument to Nezahualcoyotl in the city of the same name Texcoco has been called "the Athens of the Western World"—to quote the historian Lorenzo Boturini Bernaducci. Legacy[edit] Huitzilihuitl. Huitzilihuitl [wit͡siˈliʔwit͡ɬ] (Nahuatl language; English: Hummingbird Feather) (d. ca. 1417) was the second tlatoani of Tenochtitlan, governing from 1396 to 1417,[1] (or 1390 to 1410 according to other sources).[2] Biography[edit] Family and childhood[edit] Reign[edit] Huitzilíhuitl, a good politician, continued the policies of his father, seeking alliances with his neighbors.

He founded the Royal Council or Tlatocan and established four permanent electors to advise the new king, in his inexperience, at the beginning of each reign.[1] During his reign, the weaving industry grew. Huitzilíhuitl also wanted to introduce potable water into the city, bringing it to the island from the mainland over the brackish water of the lake.

In 1409, the ruler of Texcoco, Techotlala, died and the throne passed to Ixtlilxóchitl I. Death[edit] Huitzilíhuitl died, probably in 1417, before the end of the war between Azcapotzalco and Texcoco. Notes[edit] References[edit] Álvarez, José Rogelio, ed. (1987). Jayavarman VII. Jayavarman VII (Khmer: ជ័យវរ្ម័នទី៧, 1125–1218) was a king (reigned c.1181-1218) of the Khmer Empire in present day Siem Reap, Cambodia. He was the son of King Dharanindravarman II (r. 1150-1160) and Queen Sri Jayarajacudamani. He married Jayarajadevi and then, after her death, married her sister Indradevi. The two women are commonly thought to have been a great inspiration to him, particularly in his unusual devotion to Buddhism, as only one prior Khmer king was a Buddhist. Early years[edit] Jayavarman probably spent his early years away from the Khmer capital.

Defeat of the Cham and coronation[edit] In 1177 and again in 1178, the Cham invaded Cambodia.[1] In 1178, they launched a surprise attack on the Khmer capital by sailing a fleet up the Mekong River, across Lake Tonlé Sap, and then up the Siem Reap River, a tributary of the Tonle Sap. Public works and monuments[edit] Historians have identified three stages in Jayavarman's building program. Ta Prohm[edit] Angkor Thom and Bayon[edit] Khmer Empire. The Khmer Empire, now known as Cambodia, was the powerful Khmer Hindu-Buddhist empire in Southeast Asia.

The empire, which grew out of the former Kingdom of Funan and Chenla, at times ruled over and/or vassalized most of mainland Southeast Asia, parts of modern-day Laos, Thailand, and southern Vietnam.[1] Its greatest legacy is Angkor, in present-day Cambodia, which was the site of the capital city during the empire's zenith. The majestic monuments of Angkor — such as Angkor Wat and Bayon — bears testimony to the Khmer empire's immense power and wealth, impressive art and culture, architectural technique and aesthetics achievements, as well as the variety of belief systems that it patronised over time. Recently satellite imaging has revealed Angkor to be the largest pre-industrial urban center in the world.[2] The beginning of the era of the Khmer Empire is conventionally dated to 802 AD. Historiography[edit] History[edit] Formation and growth[edit] Golden age[edit] Ta Prohm. Ta Prohm (Khmer: ប្រាសាទតាព្រហ្ម)is the modern name of the temple at Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia, built in the Bayon style largely in the late 12th and early 13th centuries and originally called Rajavihara (in Khmer: រាជវិហារ).

Located approximately one kilometre east of Angkor Thom and on the southern edge of the East Baray, it was founded by the Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a Mahayana Buddhist monastery and university. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found: the photogenic and atmospheric combination of trees growing out of the ruins and the jungle surroundings have made it one of Angkor's most popular temples with visitors. UNESCO inscribed Ta Prohm on the World Heritage List in 1992. Today, it is one of the most visited complexes in Cambodia’s Angkor region.

History[edit] Foundation and expansion[edit] In 1186 A.D., Jayavarman VII embarked on a massive program of construction and public works. Tree at Ta Prohm. Roomful of Shattered Buddhas. Ta Prohm HDR.

Azoteas Vivas. ¡AIRE PURO! Cuántas veces hemos repetido esta frase al alejarnos de la ciudad… Es indiscutible que la calidad ambiental del aire en el campo es mayor que en la ciudad. Los malos hábitos y el estilo de vida de la ciudad han provocado que el aire esté cada vez más contaminado y ello está produciendo un sinfín de problemas, como el aumento de enfermedades (p.e.: respiratorias), efecto invernadero, etc.

Por el simple hecho de vivir más cerca y depender de una manera más directa del medio natural que los rodea , los habitantes de los pueblos tienden a realizar una mayor reflexión sobre la repercusión de los impactos producidos por la obtención de las materias primas, la producción y eliminación de residuos, o los vertidos y emisiones realizadas por la industria y medios de transporte, que además siempre van ligados a un consumo excesivo. La distancia entre el campo y la ciudad no solo se va haciendo tan aparente en este aspecto. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. Ecotono urbano mexico - RESIDENCIAL. Nuevo negocio: huertos en las azoteas. Plantas de invierno. Ahora, durante el mes de enero, se hace más pesado el cuidado de los jardines y los huertos debido a las bajas temperaturas, las lluvias, la nieve, y el viento.

No apetece estar fuera y además ya se ha perdido el colorido de meses pasados. Sin embargo, para recuperarlo cuando llegue de nuevo la primavera, este es el mejor momento para realizar las operaciones de mantenimiento necesarias de cara a tenerlo otra vez como nuevo. Es el mes de acondicionamiento del terreno y de la elección de las plantas nuevas que querremos tener, ya que en poco más de dos meses estará de vuelta la época de floración de la mayoría de plantas. Sin embargo, no quiere decir que haya que renunciar a tener un jardín agradable en estas fechas, ya que hay muchas especies que se adaptan muy bien al invierno.

Para plantar en el jardín Si estamos en una zona de clima frío, es un momento propicio para plantar rosas, árboles frutales y arbustos caducifolios.

Ha llegado el momento de preparar las conservas con los excedentes del huerto para poder utilizarlas durante los meses venideros en los que ya no habrá en el huerto hortalizas de verano frescas . Siempre se pueden comprar en el mercado porque ahora están disponibles todo el año, pero desde que tengo huerto excepto contadas excepciones suelo consumir lo que éste produce, es decir hortalizas y verduras de temporada, lo mismo que si he de comprar algo. si necesito por ejemplo tomate o pimiento fuera de temporada lo utilizo de la conserva propia, es cuestión de acostumbrarse a consumir los productos frescos en su ciclo habitual.

Pero si los productos frescos no son lo mismo en su temporada que fuera de ella, las conservas caseras tampoco saben igual que las comerciales y tienen el aliciente de haberlas preparado nostros mismos. Este año la conserva la he hecho de tomate frito y de tomate natural triturado, otras de pimientos al natural, asados y en vinagre y también membrillo. Biozotea: Azoteas Verdes « AZOTEAS VIVAS.
