Vers l'autonomie alimentaire grâce à l'aquaponie - France Survie Imaginez vous dans un futur ou tout sera plus dur. Un futur ou l’eau douce sera rare et précieuse. Ou les océans dépeuplés ne fournirons plus que quelques poissons au prix de l’or. Et là, vous invitez des amis à manger une ratatouille du jardin, accompagnée d’un délicieux poisson… du jardin, lui aussi ! Cette scène est déjà le quotidien de ceux qui, des déserts d’Australie à ceux de l’Arizona, pratiquent l‘aquaponie. Le mot « aquaponie » est un néologisme composé à partir de « aquaculture » (production animale ou végétale en milieu aquatique) et de « hydroponie » (culture de plantes hors-sol). Les principes de l’aquaponie Pratiquées de manière classique, ces deux productions présentent de gros inconvénients économiques et environnementaux. Le coup de génie de l’aquaponie est, en combinant ces deux cultures, de transformer les inconvénients de l’une en avantage pour l’autre, et réciproquement ! Le principe général est le suivant : L’aquaponie dans le monde En pratique… Qu’est ce qu’on mange ?

Esse Cara Acha que Nunca Mais Vai Precisar Comer | VICE Brasil Sabe o que é um tremendo desperdício de tempo, dinheiro e suor? Comer coisas que você gosta. Fala a real, você não preferiria ingerir uma substância sem gosto para o resto da vida e nunca mais ter que passar pela pentelhação de abrir e comer um sanduíche pronto ou se fartar com um gorduroso café da manhã nos dias de ressaca? Rob Rhinehart, um engenheiro de software de 24 anos de Atlanta e, pelo jeito, um cara superocupado, acha que sim. Rob sacou que estava chateado com a enorme quantidade de tempo que levava para fritar um ovo de manhã e decidiu que precisava fazer alguma coisa. Primeiro achei que ele só estava trollando, porque “soylent” é o nome da bolacha feita de carne humana que alimentava a superpopulação do filme seminal de ficção científica de 1973 chamado No Mundo de 2020, mas depois li o post no blog do Rob explicando como ele chegou até essa substância e comecei a acreditar nele. VICE: Oi, Rob. Qual foi o próximo passo? Então o que é o Soylent exatamente? Ah, que bom.

March 2005 WHEN YOU WORK with these symbols, draw them in whatever way is the most comfortable for you. There is no “wrong” way to draw them, so I will not give any drawing directions. They can also be simply visualized or imagined and then “sent” to wherever they are needed. March's symbol is: Eternal Flame within the House of Life THIS SYMBOL is drawn into the heart center, then set to rotate and intended to radiate forth throughout our being.

Le tour du monde de Marina et Julien This Man Thinks He Never Has to Eat Again You know what's a complete waste of time, money, and effort? Eating. I mean, wouldn't you rather just ingest a tasteless form of sustenance for the rest of your life and never have to go through that tedious rigmarole of opening and eating a premade sandwich or feasting on a pile of fried delicacies ever again? Rob Rhinehart—a 24-year-old software engineer from Atlanta and, presumably, an impossibly busy man—thinks so. Rob found himself resenting the inordinate amount time it takes to fry an egg in the morning and decided something had to be done. Simplifying food as "nutrients required by the body to function" (which sounds totally bulimic, I know, but I promise it's not), Rob has come up with an odorless beige cocktail that he's named Soylent. VICE: Hi, Rob. What was the next step? So what’s in Soylent, exactly? And that tastes good? What are some of the benefits to the food-free lifestyle? How could Soylent affect the world's eating habits? That sounds ominous. Oh good.

Le kit d'urgence universel - France Survie Pour être prêt à affronter des situations exceptionnelles (when the shit hits the fan, comme disent les américains), nous savons qu’il faut préparer du matériel, des vêtements, de l’alimentation, etc. Ce matériel est le plus souvent décrit sous la forme d’un BOB (Bug-Out Bag, 72h Survival Bag, sac d’évacuation…). Son contenu varie bien sûr en fonction de la situation familiale, géographique, urbaine ou rurale, climatique et financière de son propriétaire, et il fait l’objet de débats passionnés et passionnants sur les forums survivalistes. Nous allons cependant tenter de définir une base commune fiable. Pour arriver à dégager ce kit d’urgence « universel », nous nous appuierons sur les recommandations des gouvernements de 8 pays importants (France, U.S.A., Allemagne, Israël, Canada, Australie, Nouvelle-Zélande et Japon). Scénario Bug-in vs bug-out Ce kit d’urgence doit répondre à 2 éventualités : Le kit et le plan Le kit n’est qu’une partie de la préparation. Besoins spécifiques

Celtic Meaning of Astrology Links to Celtic Astrology and Meanings When we contemplate the Celtic meaning of astrology, it's first helpful to recognize the Celts came up with a system of astrological classification long before the Roman calendar was formulated, and long before the inception of classic Greco-Roman astrology. The Celts were extremely nature-savvy, and had a keen sense of connection to their natural environment. Much like the Native American's, they based most of their thoughts, words, actions and beliefs upon a foundation of Natural Laws. Consequently, the Celts devised multiple elegant systems of organic classification. A little study into the Celtic way of living reveals a special genius when it comes to observing the motions of the Earth and its connection to her inhabitants as well as her place in the cosmos. These elegant systems of organic classification I speak of are systems of correspondences. Below is a list of Celtic correspondences that may constitute their special brand of astrology.

PORK MAGAZINE Solar System's Mysterious Rock Origin Puzzle Revealed | Solar System Chondrules Rocks melted in the early solar system after electrical currents spiked through the cloud of dust circling around the young sun, according to new research. The finding brings scientists a step closer to understanding the origin of the chondrules, or glass beads, that were some of the solar system's first solids. Because chondrules form far away from the sun, astronomers could not figure out how they heated to at least 2,420 degrees Fahrenheit (1,600 degrees Kelvin), since the surrounding environment is much colder, according to observations. More mysteriously, the rocks apparently cooled within an hour or two after forming, instead of freezing instantly into a crystal, which would be expected in space. "This was a puzzle, because quite a lot of material must have passed through this process," said Mordecai-Mark Mac Low, the chair of astrophysical sciences at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Soylent: What Happened When I Stopped Eating For 2 Weeks Tim Ferriss Intro Hundreds of people have asked me about Soylent, a controversial Silicon Valley team trying to replace food with a grayish liquid. “Does it really deliver all the nutrients the human body needs?” “Is it safe?” “Why hasn’t anyone tried this before?” [Hint: they have] And most often: “What do you think of Soylent?” Serendipitously, four or so weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Shane Snow, a frequent contributor to Wired and Fast Company: I’m sure you have seen the buzz about the food-hacking movement, where a couple of Silicon Valley techies have been creating Matrix-style food replacement formulas for “optimum” chemical nutrition. Naturally, we had to do an experiment. This post describes the longest non-employee trial of Soylent to date (two weeks without food), including before-and-after data such as: - Comprehensive blood panels - Body weight and bodyfat percentage - Cognitive performance - Resting heart rate - Galvanic skin response - Sleep Enjoy the fireworks… Iron: 84%
