Aquaponics and Vertical Farming. | Freeborn Blog Aquaponics is a sustainable, closed-loop food production system that combines traditional aquaculture (breeding/keeping fish) with hydroponics (growing plants without the use of soil) using an eco-system approach within a symbiotic environment. The by-products from the fish get broken down by beneficial bacteria into nutrients. The waste water is then pumped up/upcycled as an organic fertilizer for the plants in the hydroponic sub-system. The plants take up the nutrients whilst also cleaning the water – which is then recirculated back down for the fish. Aquaponics is about recycling wastes into resources, combining technologies, creating eco-systems, promoting biodiversity and producing food. Ultimately Aquaponics is all about creating more from less. As afore mentioned there is no soil used in these systems, the plants grow on rocks or clay pellets, all the nutrients coming from the fish. It’s all organic and as such there is no need for any artificial fertilizers. ¸.·´¯`·.´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.

How to Travel on a Budget in Your 20s | Wheretraveler When I was 18, I wrote a postcard to my grandmother from Austria, describing how I slept for free on the porch of a hostel in Innsbruck. While I wouldn't do that now, it's fun to reminisce about my backpacking days. Back then, bars were inundated with smoke, currency changes were required after each border crossing, and it took about nine hours to travel from London to Paris. One of the most amazing changes over the past decade is the speed and ease with which you can get around. Getting Around My first stop when seeking cheap flights is Although flights may look cheap at first glance, it's important to factor in the extra costs, such as the price for getting to and from the airport. One mode of transportation I advise backpackers to steer clear of is a car. Saving on Accomodations When it comes to economical accommodations, hostels are still some of the cheapest beds in town. Another way to sleep inexpensively is to rent a bed in someone's home. Staying in Touch

Sports Guy Unplugged (from 1996) When I plugged "The Assist" by Neil Swidey (an excellent book about Charlestown High's basketball team) on last month, I mentioned following South Boston High's team for the entire 1995-96 season for a 15,000-word piece that never ended up getting published anywhere. At the time, it was an enormous disappointment for me, although in retrospect, my writing probably wasn't good enough. (I didn't totally know what I was doing yet, although my heart was in the right place.) A few readers e-mailed me wondering if I could post that piece, so I decided to dust it off, tighten the piece one last time and post it here in its entirety. I'll have an update about what happened to the main characters from the piece in a later post. A CHAMPION REPEATSSpending the '96 season with South Boston's High's basketball team by Bill Simmons Six floors high in a South End apartment building, Monty Mack gulps Kool-Aid at his kitchen table and contemplates the basketball season ahead.

​8 Basic Life-Saving Skills Everyone Should Know Permaculture: Creating Sustainable Systems | Freeborn Blog Permaculture is a design science based on the observation of natural systems. It helps us realise an ethical approach for creating ecological systems for sustainability in all aspects of our lives. It involves creating forest food gardens; planting and maintaining both non-edible and edible plants such as vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts, berries and grain. Along with keeping and breeding animals, eliminating the need for herbicide, catching and reusing rainwater; creating swales, soil creation, local economics, preventing pests and diseases, reducing waste and creating energy and community systems. The Tasmanian word “Permaculture” derives from the terms “permanent Culture” and “Permanent agriculture”. Over the years Permaculture has grown into a global movement that now works in every country and is connected on the internet via the World Wide Permaculture Network Everything is connected: “The core of permaculture is design. So, it’s not just about living off the land. Core Values:

Beer & Ale Bottles Bottle Typing/Diagnostic Shapes Beer & Ale BottlesHOME: Bottle Typing/Diagnostic Shapes: Beer & Ale Bottles Click here to move to the Organization & Structure Summary. As with wine and champagne bottles, beer and ale were bottled in a relatively limited array of bottle shapes. Essentially all beer/ale bottles are round (cylindrical) in cross section; square, rectangular, or other body shapes are almost unknown. Beer and ale, being carbonated (known as "pressure ware" in the bottle making industry), pretty much had to be contained in cylindrical heavy glass bottles since such a shape is inherently stronger than other shapes - all other things being equal, e.g., bottle size, glass thickness and quality (Tooley 1953; Glass Industry 1959). Beer bottles were of thick glass also since they had to be able to survive extensive post-bottling handling and use since these bottles were typically re-used many times, as evidenced by extensive base and side wear to many examples.

Spill a lot? NeverWet's ready to coat your gear | Crave Imagine spilling red wine or chocolate syrup on your shirt, only to watch it glide off as if nothing ever happened in the first place. Hogwash? No, it's called NeverWet. Awhile back, I wrote about NeverWet , a superhydrophobic coating that can be applied to nearly any surface and repels liquids startlingly well. The NeverWet package contains two cans -- a base and top coat -- capable of covering 10 to 15 square feet with water-repelling action on a multitude of surfaces including metal, wood, fabric, and plastic. Unfortunately, it's not wise to use NeverWet on transparent surfaces like glass, as the spray dries with a frosted appearance. An FAQ included with the NeverWet instructions (PDF) advises that you not use the coating on electronics. Watch the jaw-dropping liquid-repelling abilities of NeverWet in the following video.

The Mysterious History Of 'Marijuana' : Code Switch hide captionOne of the many, many forms of cannabis. "it was 3 a.m."/via Flickr One of the many, many forms of cannabis. We've decided to take a weekly look at a word or phrase that's caught our attention, whether for its history, usage, etymology, or just because it has an interesting story. This week, we look into how we came to call cannabis "marijuana," and the role Mexico played in that shift. Marijuana has been intertwined with race and ethnicity in America since well before the word "marijuana" was coined. Throughout the 19th century, news reports and medical journal articles almost always use the plant's formal name, cannabis. But this version of the story starts to prompt more questions than answers when you take a close look at the history of the drug in the U.S.: What role did race actually play in the perception of the drug? Let's start with the race question. In 1937, U.S. Folks weren't just worrying about Mexicans and jazz musicians, either. The Turn Of The 20th Century
