Tree Hugging Now Scientifically Validated | Spirit of Ma'at Die hard conservatives love to disparage liberals as tree huggers, but it has been recently scientifically validated that hugging trees is actually good for you. Research has shown that you don’t even have to touch a tree to get better, you just need to be within its vicinity has a beneficial effect. In a recently published book, Blinded by Science, the author Matthew Silverstone, proves scientifically that trees do in fact improve many health issues such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration levels, reaction times, depression and other forms of mental illness. The author points to a number of studies that have shown that children show significant psychological and physiological improvement in terms of their health and well being when they interact with plants and trees. The answer to how plants and trees affect us physiologically turns out to be very simple. There is one other school of thought are in alignment with this remarkable theory: Taoism.

Hydroponics NASA researcher checking hydroponic onions with Bibb lettuce to his left and radishes to the right Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, biochar, mineral wool, expanded clay pebbles or coconut husk. Researchers discovered in the 18th century that plants absorb essential mineral nutrients as inorganic ions in water. History[edit] In 1929, William Frederick Gericke of the University of California at Berkeley began publicly promoting that solution culture be used for agricultural crop production.[2][3] He first termed it aquaculture but later found that aquaculture was already applied to culture of aquatic organisms. Two other plant nutritionists at the University of California were asked to research Gericke's claims. Origin[edit] Soilless culture[edit]

Un Truc Par Jour | Il y a plus de solutions que de problèmes » Help Your Kids Fight Addicting Foods By Donna Gates If we’re addicted to food, the addiction often begins in childhood. After all, what are many of our kids eating for breakfast? Wheat, dairy, and sugar are the most addictive foods on the planet. According to Yale Rudd Center’s Cereal FACTS 2012: Kellogg’s Froot Loops made $162,182,800 in sales.Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes made $267,170,500 in sales.General Mills Honey Nut Cheerios made $357,013,600 in sales. Today, we eat over 100 pounds more sugar a year than we did nearly a century ago! The problem with cereal is that it’s made from wheat and coated in sugar; once it’s poured into a bowl, it’s covered in milk. Wheat, dairy, and sugar are the most addictive foods on the planet. In fact, studies have shown that wheat, dairy, and sugar are just as addictive as any illicit or pharmaceutical drug. Unfortunately, these foods are literally the mainstay of the Standard American Diet. Wheat At the National Institute of Health, Dr. Exorphins mimic the natural opiates that the body makes.

Aquaponics A small, portable aquaponics system. The term aquaponics is a blend of the terms aquaculture and hydroponic agriculture. Aquaponics (/ˈækwəˈpɒnɪks/) refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrifying bacteria initially into nitrites and subsequently into nitrates that are utilized by the plants as nutrients. As existing hydroponic and aquaculture farming techniques form the basis for all aquaponic systems, the size, complexity, and types of foods grown in an aquaponic system can vary as much as any system found in either distinct farming discipline.[1] History[edit] Plants[edit]

The Problem With Little White Girls (and Boys) White people aren’t told that the color of their skin is a problem very often. We sail through police check points, don’t garner sideways glances in affluent neighborhoods, and are generally understood to be predispositioned for success based on a physical characteristic (the color of our skin) we have little control over beyond sunscreen and tanning oil. After six years of working in and traveling through a number of different countries where white people are in the numerical minority, I’ve come to realize that there is one place being white is not only a hindrance, but negative — most of the developing world. In high school, I travelled to Tanzania as part of a school trip. There were 14 white girls, 1 black girl who, to her frustration, was called white by almost everyone we met in Tanzania, and a few teachers/chaperones. $3000 bought us a week at an orphanage, a half built library, and a few pickup soccer games, followed by a week long safari. Some might say that that’s enough.

Rawfully Organic Co-op La jalousie : Ses origines, ses mécanismes, ses conséquences, et comment la réduire. - Dans ma vie, je suis passé par toutes les étapes de la jalousie, de la plus maladive et malsaine, jusqu’à sa quasi-disparition.Il y a 7 ou 8 ans, ma petite amie m’annonce avoir embrassé un autre homme. J’ai détruit ma toute première relation sérieuse, d’une durée de treizes mois, pour cette raison puérile. Aujourd’hui, j’écoute avec passion mon amoureuse me raconter ses fantasmes avec ses collègues de bureau. Entre ces deux "extrêmes", j’ai franchis toutes les étapes. Avant de commencer sur ce sujet, une question simple : 1/ Pourquoi vouloir se débarrasser de la jalousie ? On pourrait simplement arguer qu’éliminer une source de souffrance potentielle de sa vie est forcément positif. Cela dit, ce raisonnement logique (car votre cerveau est une machine logique, même dans le domaine émotionnel) repose sur un point de vue faussé. 2/ Des origines préhistoriques de la jalousie : Si les théories évolutionnaristes ne sont pas votre tasse de thé, vous pouvez sauter toute cette partie.

Lichen A lichen (/ˈlaɪkən/,[1] sometimes /ˈlɪtʃən/ [2]) is a composite organism consisting of a fungus (the mycobiont) and a photosynthetic partner (the photobiont or phycobiont) growing together in a symbiotic relationship. The photobiont is usually either a green alga (commonly Trebouxia) or cyanobacterium (commonly Nostoc).[3] The morphology, physiology and biochemistry of lichens are very different from those of the isolated fungus and alga in culture. Lichens occur in some of the most extreme environments on Earth—arctic tundra, hot deserts, rocky coasts, and toxic slag heaps. However, they are also abundant as epiphytes on leaves and branches in rain forests and temperate woodland, on bare rock, including walls and gravestones, and on exposed soil surfaces (e.g., Collema) in otherwise mesic habitats. The roofs of many buildings have lichens growing on them. Overview[edit] The body (thallus) of most lichens is different from those of either the fungus or alga growing separately.

Vermiculture: How To Build A Worm Bin the Cheap and Easy Way By Gaye Levy Contributing Writer for Wake Up World A couple of weeks ago I wrote about using worms to create compost. The official term for this is “Vermicomposting” and the great thing about it is that it is clean and tidy and does not take up a lot of space. Now that I have you excited about composting with worms – and specifically red worms – I would like to provide you with instructions for building the cheapest worm bin imaginable. The Cheap and Easy Worm Bin Materials: Here are the materials you will need to build your worm bin. * Two 8 to 10 gallon plastic storage bins * Drill (with 1/4″ and 1/16″ bits) for making drainage and ventilation holes * Newspaper * About one pound of red wiggler worms The bins should be opaque and not clear. Also, although you could use larger bins, they will be too doggone heavy to lift once they are full of nicely composted worm castings. Putting it all together: 1. 2. 3. Moisten the newspaper by soaking it in water and then squeezing out the excess water. 4.
