Nourishing and Tonifying Herbs by Susun Weed - Weed Wanderings Herbal eZine with Susun Weed Nourishing and Tonifying Herbs Nourishing Herbal Infusions by Susun S Weed © 2007 Most herbalists, throughout history, have been fascinated with poisonous plants. This fascination, along with careful study, experimentation, and observation, has given rise to pharmacy --the use of concentrated poisons -- on one hand, and to homeopathy -- the use of diluted poisons -- on the other. While respecting the ability of plants to stimulate and sedate, I have focused my studies elsewhere, specifically on the nourishing abilities of plants. Part of Nietzsche’s problem with history, science, and the knowledge drive in general is that these activities typically presuppose that "knowing" is possible, and that truth is more valuable than untruth, or appearance Part of Nietzsche’s problem with history, science, and the knowledge drive in general is that these activities typically presuppose that "knowing" is possible, and that truth is more valuable than untruth, or appearance. It is supposed that there is another world, one free from our perceptions, which can be known if we can find an objectifying lens through which the real nature of things, i.e. inherent properties, things-in-themselves, essences, can be understood. Nietzsche sees most endeavors concerned with discovering the truth as attempts to separate the knower from the known in such a way that they can separate their perceptions (the way the world seems) from the perceived object (an entity that has an existence free from what we bring to the word.) With this separation of the world into "the world of mere appearances" and the "real world," objects are seen as things-in-themselves, with inherent meanings that are non-revisable, objective, and universal ("The Philosopher" 133).
China vs United States As we discussed in yesterday’s post, whether the United States and China like it or not, the economic futures of both countries are intertwined. Everyone knows that China’s got more people and that its importance as an economic superpower has escalated in recent years. What you might not understand is how the differences between our countries, in economic philosophy, in population, in geography and in how the military is built and paid for ultimately play into the entire economic relationship. For many China remains something of a mystery. In order to help compare and contrast the economic differences, we have simplified the data from the CIA World Factbook.

WWIII Propaganda Posters (by @baekdal) #design Written by Thomas Baekdal | Friday, January 28, 2011 Artist Brian Lane Winfield Moore has recreated a number of the old WWII posters in a more modern "war of interwebs" style. Beautiful work. Follow: 42Concepts
40 Witty Campaign Posters for a Cause Non-profit organizations use posters to deliver a particular message. These help inform people about current issues, problems and even the possible consequences of their actions. With a sentence that contains strong words or images, these posters give more impact than common commercial posters. What is Breast Thermography Breast thermography is a diagnostic procedure that images the breasts to aid in the early detection of breast cancer. The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in the normal breast. Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth.
Zombie Virus Drives Caterpillars To An Explosive Death Halloween is just around the corner, but it seems like some members of the animal kingdom have already started playing ghoulish tricks on one another. Scientists recently discovered something that was causing European gypsy moth caterpillars to behave very strangely. The caterpillars were infected by a deadly baculovirus, and with their last bits of strength, they did something that would be out of the question if they were healthy: they climbed out onto the very highest leaves of their tree in the middle of the day.
Is College Really Worth It? Is going to college really worth it? Probably so, but it's not that clear cut, and economics have been arguing the point for 30 years. Most studies tend to show that college-educated people end up making far more money in the course of their lifetimes. (The niggle: Usually, it's not worth paying for a private university.) Still, that evidence isn't totally cut and dry: What do you really learn in college?

One Block Off the Grid: The Smart New Way to Go Solar posted by Dave Llorens on September 8th, 2010 It Sounds Crazy, But It’s True Here at One Block Off the Grid, we’re constantly striving to demonstrate not only how much money solar can save, but also make for households, so we decided to conduct a little experiment: let’s say you, the homeowner, had $20,000 to invest today. What would happen if you decided to put panels on your roof instead of putting it in the bank?
Baking Soda and Honey Homemade Remedy That Destroys Even the Most Dangerous Diseases How Baking Soda/Maple syrup or Honey Homemade Remedy can help you fight cancer? Cancer cells love sugar – and mixing and heating alkaline bicarbonate of soda (BS) with sugar-rich maple syrup or honey, binds the two together such that the maple syrup targets the “sugar hungry” cancer cells (which consume 15x more glucose than normal cells), and thus “sneakily” also carries the baking soda into the cells, as if inside a proverbial maple syrup “Trojan horse”. The alkalinity of the baking soda either kills the cancer microbe (or reverts it to its hibernation form) inside the cancer cell, such that the cell reverts to normal. Or, it has an alkalizing effect forcing a rapid pH shift that kills the cell. The shock wave of alkalinity allows more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate. Cancer cell is reverted or eliminated before the sugar delivery can cause cancer cell growth.
