Con motivo de la velocidad alcanzada... les invitamos el miércoles 4 de julio a partir de las 21 horas al teatro tradicional de marionetas con sombras de Indonesia: A través de la historia de Arjuna Tapa del Mahabaratta y con las marionetas balinesas originales hará una introducción a este mundo mágico donde se mezclan las dos caras de la realidad; la de aquí y la de ahí, la que se ve y la que no, lo que uno piensa que es y lo que realmente es, lo bueno y lo malo, lo de arriba y lo de abajo, la luz y la oscuridad, lo sagrado y lo profano, lo tradicional y la actualidad, la artesanía y la tecnología. Antonio Muñoz von Furstenberg tuvo la oportunidad de aprender el arte del Wayang Kulit, durante su estancia en Bali en 2011, de manos del maestro dalang I Nyoman Sumandhi. Hijo y nieto de maestros marionetistas, director del High School of Performance Arts de Denpasar, Bali hasta 1999. Sumandhi ha impartido sus conocimientos y actuado en Estados Unidos, Europa y Asia.

Casal Popular de Castelló | wiki | JornadesCooperativisme / PRESENTACIÓ Construint creant Amb motiu de l’entrada al nou any 2012, assenyalat com l’any internacional del cooperativisme, un grup de persones vinculades als moviments socials de Castelló hem engegat un grup de treball de cara a organitzar les Primeres Jornades de Cooperativisme i Economia Solidària a Castelló de la Plana. Tenint en compte l’actual context històric, econòmic i social que ens ha tocat viure, des del nostre grup de treball trobàvem important cercar fòrmules per tal de fer front a la nostra realitat més immediata. Considerant la situació que es dóna actualment a les nostres comarques (elevat índex d’atur, precarietat laboral, límits del model econòmic actual, sobrevaloració de l’economia especulativa, manca d’alternatives per als i les joves, sobrevaloració de models empresarials competitius,...), ens semblava important conferir un espai de formació, debat, difusió i suport mutu que d’alguna manera puga ajudar a ventilar l’actual escenari, com a mínim al nostre àmbit més pròxim.

SEO/BirdLife 5 Easy to Grow Mosquito-Repelling Plants As the outdoor season approaches, many homeowners and outdoor enthusiasts look for ways to control mosquitoes. With all the publicity about the West Nile virus, mosquito repelling products are gaining in popularity. But many commercial insect repellents contain from 5% to 25% DEET. There are concerns about the potential toxic effects of DEET, especially when used by children. Children who absorb high amounts of DEET through insect repellents have developed seizures, slurred speech, hypotension and bradycardia. There are new DEET-free mosquito repellents on the market today which offer some relief to those venturing outdoors in mosquito season. Here are five of the most effective mosquito repelling plants which are easy to grow in most regions of the US: 1. Citronella is the most common natural ingredient used in formulating mosquito repellents. Citronella is a perennial ‘clumping’ grass which grows to a height of 5 – 6 feet. 2. Horsemint leaves can be dried and used to make herbal tea.

Medi Ambient | Assemblea de Barri Poble Sec La Comisión de Ciencia y Medioambiente de la Asamblea del Poblesec (apsmediambient@gmail.com) somos un grupo de personas interesadas en avanzar hacia un modelo diferente de relación con el entorno, con las personas, y con nosotr=s mism=s, que recupere el equilibrio que la actividad humana ha distorsionado y del cual nos distanciamos paulatinamente, principalmente en las erróneamente denominadas sociedades desarrolladas. El concepto actual de desarrollo se basa únicamente en el crecimiento económico y tecnológico, dando lugar a un modelo de sociedad que no pone como elemento prioritario la felicidad de las personas. Defendemos el decrecimiento como vía de búsqueda de dicho equilibrio. Un decrecimiento consciente y participativo que de respuesta a las necesidades reales de los seres humanos y de la naturaleza. Denunciamos el capitalismo, pues sus premisas promueven un crecimiento infinito en un planeta de recursos finitos, lo cual conduce inevitablemente a una crisis ecológica. Me gusta:

Transición Sostenible. Facilitando el cambio hacia la sostenibilidad Bicycle Maintenance Guide and Riding Tips This page was last updated 24 May 2007. I often get asked about bicycle maintenance and repairs, and tips for how to ride efficiently. This little manual is intended as a summary of what I have learned over the years. I am not a professional mechanic. All of what I say here is the result of personal experience and opinion and may in places flatly contradict professional techniques, but it has served me well. I offer no guarantees that it will work for you.

Benvinguda eco-union Metal Alloy Purifies Water and Generates Electricity | Alternative Energy | Aluminum | InnovationNewsDaily At last, little chunks of aluminum everywhere can be something greater then a soda can or a baseball bat. Thanks to a special reactive alloy, some of those lucky little nuggets could solve the world's energy crisis. Jerry Woodall, an engineer at Purdue University, has created an aluminum alloy that reacts with water to create hydrogen and heat. He is encouraging venture capitalists to design a system that uses both capturing the hydrogen as fuel and using the heat to pull clean water out of the air. The greatest benefit of using aluminum is its abundance. "There is enough aluminum on the Earth's crust to supply the whole world's energy needs," Woodall told InnovationNewsDaily. To make use of this aluminum, Woodall melts it and combines it with gallium, indium and tin . Just 2.2 pounds (one kilogram) of the aluminum alloy provides 12.9 kilowatt hours of energy when exposed to water. Furthermore, all of the aluminum that goes into the reaction can be fully retrieved.

Australian Engineers Unveil "Free Energy Machine" THE world may soon be able to buy one of the Far North's most controversial yet revolutionary inventions. The Lutec 1000 free energy machine have resurfaced after six years of steering clear of the public spotlight, having been granted patents in at least 60 countries around the world, including the US, China and India. Engineers John Christie and Lou Brits, who have endured intense criticism after they first unveiled their invention in 2001, are now preparing to construct a prototype of their revolutionary power device they hope to market within the next two years. The dynamic duo said they felt somewhat vindicated they had been able to land patents for their device and have had the Lutec verified by an independent engineer. "When we first kicked off, there was a huge fuss about it and people said we’d never get patents for it," Mr Christie said. "They said it would never work, so we couldn’t get patents, so it’s a good thing to see now."
