Native American Council Offers Amnesty to 240 Million Undocumented Whites The Native American National Council will offer amnesty to the estimated 240 million illegal white immigrants living in the United States. At a meeting on Friday in Taos, New Mexico, Native American leaders weighed a handful of proposals about the future of the United State’s large, illegal European population. After a long debate, NANC decided to extend a road to citizenship for those without criminal records or contagious diseases. “We will give Europeans the option to apply for Native Citizenship,” explained Chief Sauti of the Nez Perce tribe. “Any illegal European who has a criminal record of any sort, minus traffic and parking tickets, will be deported back to their native land. European colonization of North America began in the 16th and 17th centuries, when arrivals from France, Spain and England first established settlements on land that had been occupied by native peoples. “They all need to be deported back to Europe,” John Dakota from True Americans said.

Os 7 elementos do universo Zilhões de partículas se movendo freneticamente dão forma a tudo o que vemos nesse mundo. Essas partículas, estudadas pela física quântica e que vão muito além do átomo uma vez pensado para ser indivisível, são tão pequenas que desafiam nossa compreensão. Nesse artigo, vamos explicar os constituintes básicos do universo – e o que realmente pode ser chamado de fundamental. 1. Neutrino A cada segundo, cerca de centenas de bilhões de partículas praticamente sem massa atravessam seu corpo quase na velocidade da luz. Neutrinos surgem no núcleo do átomo, quando um próton se transforma em um nêutron ou vice-versa. 2. O elétron, diferentemente do “nômade” neutrino, tem seu “habitat natural”: é a periferia do átomo, também conhecida como eletrosfera. Essas partículas, descobertas em 1897, possuem massa desprezível, mas não podemos dizer o mesmo de sua utilidade. 3. Quarks são as partículas que formam os prótons e nêutrons (as superpartículas que formam o núcleo do átomo). 4. 5. 6. 7. Lucas

Catholic Nun Explains Pro-Life In A Way That Will Stun Many Republican Lawmakers In one simple quote, Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B. sums up the hypocrisy of many in the 'pro-life' movement: "I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. This quote applies well to many Republican lawmakers who continue to introduce/pass restrictive misogynist laws against woman's reproductive rights. You don't hear of these Right Wing anti-choice extremists adopting children from unplanned pregnancies or putting funds into sex education. An outspoken advocate for women, Sister Joan Chittister is a lecturer and author of 50 books. The photo of Sister Joan Chittister is from her new upcoming book: 'Joan Chittister: Her Journey from Certainty to Faith by Tom Roberts, due out in September.'

Correct Poor Eyesight Naturally with These Tips By Carolanne Wright Contributing Writer for Wake Up World More often than not in our daily lives, we find ourselves staring at tiny type on computer screens and cell phones for long periods of time, leading to increased incidence of eye strain and fatigue. Add to this the natural deterioration of vision as we age — along with the more serious problems of glaucoma and cataracts — and sharp eyesight can seem like a distant dream. Despite these seemingly inevitable obstacles, we can, in fact, enjoy healthy vision to a ripe old age. Eating for healthy eyes For bright vision — and to avoid potential problems down the road — food is a powerful ally. Dark leafy greens, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, yellow peppers and egg yolks contain potent antioxidants like beta-carotene, zeaxanthin and lutein — which defend against age-related blindness resulting from macular degeneration. Foods high in sulfur, lecithin and cysteine are another helpful addition to the diet. Exercises to improve vision

Le bon espacement… pour un jardinier paresseux | Jardinier paresseux Dans cet aménagement comestible, fleurs et légumes sont plantés serrés. Il n’est pas très utile de laisser des espaces vides dans une plate-bande ou un potager: les mauvaises herbes finissent par s’y installer. Il faut planter assez serré pour combler tout l’espace tout en laissant assez de place pour que les plantes puissent atteindre leur pleine taille. Suggestion de paresseux: plantez les végétaux à un espacement équivalent à environ trois quarts de leur diamètre adulte. Ainsi, une vivace qui atteindra 75 cm de diamètre à maturité pourrait être plantée à environ 60 cm d’espacement. Potager sans interligne entre les rangs: plus de légumes, moins de mauvaises herbes! Dans le potager, c’est la même chose. Que faire alors? Quand vous semez ou plantez vos végétaux un peu serré, les plantes sont heureuses et vous êtes heureux.

Le compostage: pas si sorcier! | Jardinier paresseux Avec la saison qui avance, il est temps de penser au compostage. Et ce n’est pas très compliqué: toute matière organique se décomposera si elle est exposée à un peu d’humidité et de chaleur, que ce soit dans un bac, dans un tas ou tout simplement étendue à travers les plantes du jardin (compostage en surface). Il se trouve toutefois que les matières organiques se décomposent plus rapidement quand il y a environ la même quantité de matières brunes, riches en carbone, et matières vertes, riches en azote (mais qui ne sont pas nécessairement de couleur verte!). Matières brunes feuilles mortes;plantes mortes;terreaux usagés (plantes d’intérieur, jardins en contenant, etc.) Matières vertes déchets de jardin (résidus de taille, fleurs fanées, etc.)déchets de cuisine d’origine végétale (pelures, fruits pourris, etc.) Ne pas composter La Cadillac des composteurs Le composteur le plus efficace et le plus productif est le composteur rotatif.
