This farm is absolutely amazing. They have 10,000 fish and 500 yards of compost and produce 1 MILLION pounds of Food per year. This has to be the way of the future if we are going to feed the population of Earth as we grow.
The beauty about this type of system is that it could also be utilized on marginal land as well.

It’s the minority running things in Israel and the US that spoil it for the rest of us.
I’ll say again, someone saying that their God says they are in the right and his chosen people, is no basis for justice, and an ability to miss direct or tell barefaced lies, is not going to fool anyone… but it may suffice for one eyed Judges, or a United Nations, where a majority is rendered impotent by one nation’s consciousless vote.

The irony is if it is deliberate and calculated, it’s being done by powerful people, so expecting doctors, who are for the most part trained by pharmaceutical companies that occupy the top of the Fortune 500; basically selling drugs for them, to help you… best of luck. And if your planning to get the alternative health people to help you, well they have that covered to.

There is some controversy over what tunes exactly the Titanic’s band was playing on deck, as they and the Titanic slipped beneath the icy waters of the Atlantic on that April night. But the unconfirmed rumors say “Song d’Automne” and the appropriate “Nearer, My God, to Thee” were heard by the survivors.
WTF is the Hippie talking about I hear you say? Well, at a time when it’s bleedingly obvious that things are going array, and after almost 12 years of total inaction by Bush in the US and Australia’s Liberal (Republican look a likes) government led by John Winston Howard and his merry group of environmental vandals; acting on behalf of the coal companies, you would hope for an improvement.
Sadly Howard’s replacement, Kevin Rudd’s Labor (Democrat look a likes) government’s first action is to put a means test on the subsidy given to people who put solar panels on their homes… yep you heard me right, hard to believe isn’t it, but get this, ironically they said it was because they thought the Solar industries were in danger of overheating.
But wait there’s more. Brendon Neilson, the new Liberal opposition leader, who prior to joining the Liberal party had an ear stud, and who prior to taking command, stated with gusto and feeling “I have never voted Liberal in my life”! is now doing his best to prevent Australia moving from being world leaders in pollution, to being leaders in the no action brigade and full steam a head on the economy. Meanwhile the band’s breaking out their instruments.
Thankfully Western Europe is making an effort, Germany with about half the sunlight of Australia is actually doing more with solar than Australia, Holland and Great Britain are building tidal turbines, even though they don’t have the 10 meter plus tides we have in the north of our country, and Iceland is going gangbusters with geothermal, whilst Australia is thinking about pilot geothermal plants… it’s embarrassing.
But I’m going to save my praise for Allen Jones; currently working on solving London’s power problems, who’s one of the few who’s got a grasp on the fact that centralized power sources; which only suit the power and fossil fuel industries, are largely inefficient and unnecessary, that with a bit of uncommon sense, you can provide all the power you need to drive a city in the city, by using a variety of what’s often referred to as alternative energy… good on you Allen.

My interest in Anthropology came about after I was given a copy of H.G. Wells’s book ‘The Outline of History’ in my late teens. I must admit that I’d not been a fan of reading at the time, partly because most of the stuff I was given at school was, for me, largely uninteresting, but also because I am dyslectic.
Wade Davis presents an interesting lecture on everything from the upper Paleolithic Lascaux cave art in France, through to the indigenous peoples known as the Elder Brothers, a group of Sierra Nevada Indians, to the people of Machu Pichu and the Inuit of the Arctic. He talks about their beliefs, ways of life and their relationship to their environment… it’s a very interesting talk that lies somewhere between H.G. Wells and Terence McKenna.
By the way, the Wells book to which I referred, is also available as an audio book, and it’s a totally brilliant comprehensive outline of history, narrated with all the subtle nuances and humor of Wells by Bernard Mayes… it’s well worth investing in and will give you hours of pleasure.

Prepped precocious princess perhaps, but at about her age, I, shortly after arriving in Britain, from Kenya via Norway, was forced by my non denominational school to attend church… I thought it was a load of bullshit, so I asked my mum to write me a note telling the school that they were not to force me to go to church.
Now considering that the Judaic, Christian and Muslim religions, all have as their earliest text the Old Testament, complete with the 10 Commandments, I shall judge them by their own Laws.
ONE: ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’ – But money and or Power seems to be the exception.
SIX: ‘You shall not murder.’ – Well that one’s totally ignored it seems by all three of the aforementioned religions.
EIGHT: ‘You shall not steal.’ – This one’s broken again by the big three, Israel is steeling Palestine, the US, Iraq Oil, and Muslims stole 4 jets and flew 3 of them into 3 buildings.
NINE: ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.’ – Well that’s a no brainer, they all lie constantly.
TEN: ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.’ – That’s another no brainer, they’ve all used slaves which means they have either actively stolen other countries people, or they have bought stolen people.
That’s 5 out of 10 Commandments that seem to have little or no meaning for either the Judaic, Christian or Muslim religions… I wonder if our little prepped precocious princess could explain to our religious nutters the meaning of the word Hypocrisy… better make sure she has a guardian if she visits the Catholics, strange how celibacy seems to have led to sexual predatory behavior, or attracts it’s participants.
Here’s my favorite rule – Your silence is taken as consent.
Damn I forgot to have a go at Bill O’Reilly… it’s amazing how much money Murdoch is paying that individual who seems to have no brains, manners, conscious or guts.
