Fundamentals of Alternative Currencies and Value Measurement « Beyond Money Because of legal tender laws, the “dollar” has come to have two meanings — (1) as a medium of exchange or payment (a currency), and (2) as the standard of value measurement or pricing unit. An alternative currency must eventually decouple from both “dollars” but the more urgent need by far is decoupling from the dollar as a means of payment. As I’ve pointed out in my books, an alternative currency that is issued on the basis of a national currency paid in (e.g., sold for dollars), amounts to a “gift certificate” or localized “traveler’s check.” (See Money Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender, Chapter 14, pp 145-163). It essentially amounts to prepayment for the goods or services offered by the accepting merchants. This is what I mean when I talk about liberating the exchange process and restoring (some part of) the “credit commons” and bringing it under local control. Like this: Like Loading...

DNA is activated by frequencies being infused into our world by celestial influences. The DNA activation is part of our spiritual and physical evolution, which will be evidenced as a spiritual awakening or ascension of awareness. Keys to Soul Evolution book excerpt Telepathic channeling from Simion March 9/11, 2009 We are Simion the evolutionary collective. There is DNA that is seen in 3D that appears to your science to have no discernable use, but in fact is latent genetic material that was strategically placed in your design by your spiritual parents. The human race is a mix of genetic material from the cosmos, as is all life on Earth. March 11, 2009: We are Simion the evolutionary collective.

Why Tesla's battery for your home should terrify utilities Earlier this week, during a disappointing Tesla earnings call, Elon Musk mentioned in passing that he’d be producing a stationary battery for powering the home in the next few months. It sounded like a throwaway side project from someone who’s never seen a side project he doesn’t like. But it’s a very smart move, and one that’s more central to Musk’s ambitions than it might seem. To understand why, it helps to look not at Tesla, but at SolarCity, a company chaired by Musk and run by his cousin Lyndon Rive. When you have a lot of solar, you need a lot of batteries Fueled by financing systems like SolarCity’s, government subsidies, and a rapid drop in the price of photovoltaics, solar has been growing fast. That’s part of the reason that California, with one of the most aggressive renewable energy mandates in the country, recently declared the most aggressive energy storage mandate as well, with a goal of 1.3 gigawatts of storage by 2020. Forecast storage market from GTM Research.

In this day and age where we can share the knowledge around, I love this idea. Be sure to watch the video on its use and effictiveness as well on the second page of this article, and share it around to all of your loved ones. A zeer pot is an evaporative cooler used in rural Africa and the Middle East to keep vegetables fresh. Here are the supplies used to build it. Zeer pots were re-discovered and popularized in the early 2000s by the Nigerian teacher Mohammed Bah Abba. Unless the air is very dry and the pot is exposed to a constant breeze, they generally do not become as cold as a refrigerator, but they will keep vegetables fresh for a couple of weeks. Think of it as an open-cycle refrigerator. In the under-developed parts of Africa and the Middle East, zeer pots use custom made pots prepared by local potters.

John Wells: Fascination Fuels A Life Off The Grid | Unlikely Lives John Wells and the Field Lab, his 128 square foot home in Southwest Texas Many tiny house enthusiasts want to get off the grid, and design their homes to run on solar power and catch rainwater. Living off the grid in a rural area has a special romance to it – be independent, financially free, and escape the rat race! John Wells wanted to use his time and talents to create his shelter and food directly, instead of using them to make money to pay for food and shelter. “I Was Ready For Something Different” John and “the Field Lab” may look familiar from Lloyd Kahn’s “Tiny Homes, Simple Shelter”, his 2011 New York Times Profile, and coverage on popular blogs from Apartment Therapy to Boingboing. John worked in New York City as a photographer and prop builder until he tired of New York’s pace and crowds, then lived in a large house in upstate New York until he felt consumed by bills, taxes and debt. The interior of John’s little house. On why he wanted to live off the grid:
