  • Sand turns a rural county upside-down -- by Dan Weissmann of Marketplace

    Hixton Grit
    5 Jul 2015 | 9:56 am
    January 15, 2015 The fracking boom has transformed rural Trempealeau County, Wisconsin, and areas like it. There’s no oil or gas here —  just sand, the kind oil and gas drillers prefer. Fracking has made sand a $10 billion industry, and publicly traded companies have rushed in, digging enormous mines. Trempealeau — on the western side of the state, population 28,000 or so — has more mines than any other county. “The onset of industrial sand-mining pretty much flipped our county upside-down,” says Kevin Lien, who runs the county’s Department of Land Management. “And that’s…

    The restoration work on the shield is finally finished! (Above is the auction house picture from before I received it) Back in March when I published Part I of this project, the paint had finally become inert, and we were ready for the next phase of restoration. This phase was to find a way to more permanently affix the paint in three small areas where the diluted white glue wasn’t holding the paint well. After a few more applications of the glue, it was clear that something else was needed, as these areas were in or very near the highly desirable yellow and red sections of the shield.

I often listen while working outdoors taking photography or mowing the lawn too. Since my music isn’t always kid-friendly, I tend to wear headphones most of the time.

    Money, or any abstract medium of exchange, by its very nature creates a stratified society based primarily on purchasing power, generating structural violence in our social model. We are in direct competition with each other in the job market and there is a give-take battle between the employee looking to get a higher wage and the employer balancing wages against profitability. There is no equality for our species in a sliding scale of pay rates which have a direct impact on quality of life and access to goods and services.

      “The Lights in the Tunnel” by Martin Ford explores the implications of the increasing automation of labour. It begins by visualizing the world economy, and how it will change as automation increasingly eliminates labour. Many commonly held beliefs are dispelled throughout the book with convincing logic and some unquestionable evidence. This is not something we can afford to ignore. Even without the current rapid advances in technology or full artificial general intelligence, automation is going to have some significant effects on society, and it is going to happen sooner than…

In Taoism it literally means non-action, non-doing or action of non-action.

We are currently in ecological overshoot, the amount of resources we consume annually and the waste we produce is exceeding biocapacity by about fifty percent.

There is a tremendous force of energy that is able to keep the atoms bonded together. What is amazing about nuclear energy is that it can be used to make electricity.

Pollution occurs when the natural environment cannot destroy an element without creating harm or damage to itself. The elements involved are not produced by nature, and the destroying process can vary from a few days to thousands of years (that is, for instance, the case for radioactive pollutants). In other words, pollution takes place when nature does not know how to decompose an element that has been brought to it in an…
