Bulletproof & Fireproof House Made From Used Plastic Bottles This 2 bedroom house built from recycled plastic bottles is bulletproof and fireproof and can withstand earthquakes. Oh, and it also reportedly holds a comfy year-round temperature of 64 degrees F. The bottles were filled with sand and are held together by mud and cement to form a solid wall that supposedly is stronger than cinder clocks. A man builds a wall with plastic bottles in the village of Sabon Yelwa. Nineteen-year old mason, Yahaya Musa, checks a wall of made of sand-filled plastic bottles in the village of Sabon Yelwa. “…the nearly-complete home is bullet and fireproof, earthquake resistant, and maintains a comfortable interior temperature of 64 degrees fahrenheit year round! The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day! The article states it took about 14,000 bottles to build this home. The United States throws away enough plastic bottles to build 9257 of these 2 bedroom houses per day! References: via: Comments comments

The Love Frequency – How 528 Hz Is The Frequency The Resonates At The Heart Of Creation According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. The Love frequency is the “Miracle” note of the original Solfeggio musical scale. Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. 528 resolves to a 6, the icon for physical manifestation. Definition of the Love Frequency 528 is known as the ‘Miracle’ tone which brings remarkable and extraordinary changes. 1. an extraordinary occurrence that surpasses all known human powers or natural forces and is ascribed to a divine or supernatural cause, esp. to God.2. a superb or surpassing example of something; wonder, marvel [1125-75]; ME <L Miraculum=Mira(Ri) to wonder at. fr(French): sighting, aiming to hold against the light. The 528Hz tone alone is associated with ‘DNA Repair‘

Pallet House Build In the summer of 2011, volunteers from all over the country came together to build a house of pallets for a family on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The powerful experiences of living and working on the reservation were transformational for every participant of the build. Here in The U.S.A. there are so many places with codes and restrictions. If you work with the natives, there are terrific opportunities to build no code no restriction housing. There are many indigenous peoples who are far from commercial infrastructure making access to what most would consider "normal" stores or supplies quite difficult. We have seen many pallet houses which were just pallets, and not complete. The land is cleared and trench is dug for moisture / freeze barrier earth bag foundation

The Forest: An Open World Survival Game Your plane has crash landed on an island (at least I assume it’s an island) and you seem to be the only survivor. Now it’s up to you to create shelter, find food, and stay alive. This is exactly what the guys from SKS Games are trying to re-create with their debut PC game, The Forest. The World The world is said to take place in a “living, breathing forest.” Gameplay You’ll want to do all of your exploring and building during the daylight hours. What Are These Monsters? You only get a quick glimpse of the monsters in the trailer, what exactly are they? The Forest is still in it’s alpha-stages, but is shooting for a release of late 2013.

Strawbale Innovation in the UK I just spotted this on It’s a tiny strawbale house offered by amazonails, the leading strawbale building company in the UK. This tiny house is their answer to a growing demand for tiny strawbale houses. Their website is filled with a lot of alternative building techniques like cement-free tire foundations and using lime instead of cement as a binder for stone and brick. If you’re in the UK, or are inclined to travel, you might want to enroll in one of their workshops or even hire them to consult on your strawbale project. Laranja Mecânica (filme) Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre. Alex DeLarge (Malcolm McDowell), o protagonista, é um sociopata carismático cujos os interesses incluem música clássica (principalmente Beethoven), estupro e ultra violência. Ele lidera uma pequena gangue de arruaceiros (Pete, Georgie e Dim) a quem ele chama de drugues (da palavra russa друг para "amigo", "camarada"). O filme narra os terríveis crimes de sua gangue, sua captura e a tentativa de reabilitação através do controverso condicionamento psicológico. Alex narra a maioria do filme em Nadsat, gírias adolescentes compostas por corruptelas de idiomas eslavos (principalmente russo), inglês e cockney. Laranja Mecânica é considerado o primeiro filme punk rock já feito e ainda hoje influencia os estilos visuais e musicais de bandas e filmes.[1] [2] No dia seguinte, enquanto ocioso da escola, Alex é abordado por seu conselheiro pós-correcional PR Deltóide, que está ciente da violência de Alex e o adverte.

New giant 3D printer can build a house in 24 hours (TruthSeekerDaily) Scientists claim to have developed a revolutionary new giant 3D concrete printer that can build a 2,500-square-foot house in just 24 hours. The 3D printer, developed by Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis from the University of Southern California, could be used to build a whole house, layer by layer, in a single day. The giant robot replaces construction workers with a nozzle on a gantry, which squirts out concrete and can quickly build a home based on a computer pattern, MSN News reported. It is “basically scaling up 3D printing to the scale of building,” said Khoshnevis. ‘Contour Crafting’ is a layered fabrication technology and has great potential for automating the construction of whole structures as well as sub-components, according to the project website. The potential applications of this technology are far reaching including in emergency, low-income, and commercial housing. With the process, large-scale parts can be fabricated quickly in a layer-by-layer fashion.
