Don't Show It Unless You're Prepared to Use It
30 Nov 2011
All the candidates running for the office of President of the United States this election season ostensibly would like to get elected. It's safe to assume they would not be putting themselves through the obvious stresses of all the hoops and pressures of being a candidate entails otherwise. Candidates normally go around making all kinds of promises to get elected and upon getting elected, just change their positions on whatever they wish, to please whomever they choose. That isn't something relegated to one particular state, region or country that's pretty much universal most likely happening every day somewhere in some region of the world.

Better Instead of More
30 Nov 2011
Economics should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing self-determination and creativity. Economics changes with the times. Once savings was the elixir and then spending was the elixir. The planet is endangered when growth and work become fetishes pursued for their own sake. Frank Rotering in "Needs and Limits" discusses the reality of "ecological overshoot."

Saladify! A New Food Preparation Movement
28 Nov 2011
No, we are not just talking more kinds of salad. Rather this “neo” verb means putting salad ingredients into foodstuffs that normally do “not” have much in the way of “raw” salad items in them—thus we will be combining raw nutrition power with tasty cooked flavors and textures. Imagine your next bowl of chili (either traditional or veggie) as “saladified”. After you prepare your favorite traditional chili, as you shut the stove off (being still hot), stir in fresh, chopped onion, garlic, spinach, tomato, celery, cilantro, (maybe a little jalapeno), and maybe grated cheddar cheese. Now you have more colors! more textures! more flavors! higher ratio of vegetable mass! (and higher levels of nutrients and live enzymes). Doesn’t that bring a smile to your heart? It should. After all aren’t you just a little bored with the traditional same old same—even if it is classic? Saladify my friend. Saladify your chili and you will be glad you did!

Likewise, this decision affirms the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program- Extension with Reforms (CARPER) - farmers must own the lands they till and it is the onus of government to guarantee it.
