News report about the Enviropig on CNN (First GM farm animals could come out of UofG. #Enviropig debates are lighting up the UC today.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I still wonder if a bunch of people that haven't figure out how to do keep their water,air and soil healthy aren't really ready for redesigning life on the planet yet. The motivation seems to be more so that a handful get to own everything that allows us to survive and get rich off of that control.
More than half of the rivers previously thought to exist in China appear to be missing, according to the 800,000 surveyors who compiled the first national water census, leaving Beijing fumbling to explain the cause.
“Pizza al Formaggio” is a type of savoury, cheesy cake, very typical of central Italy and especially Le Marche region. You can find this throughout the year, but you will definitely see and eat a lot of it, if you hang around during the Easter break. It is such a rich recipe: white flour, eggs, olive oil, butter, milk, a pinch of pepper and nutmeg, zest of lemon and of course mixed cheese, both grated and in chunks. A great way to celebrate Easter and if you do it for yourself, or are lucky enough to get it from a “grandma”, you will taste the authenticity, the flavour and the richness of traditions over here. Pizza al Formaggio best goes with a nice local salami, or ham and of course a nice glass of Rosso Conero will make it even smoother. Happy Easter from Made In Marche!
The Headley family built their house a few years ago, just before the gas-drilling boom hit. They had a chance to buy the gas rights but chose not to. Now, they wish they had, because they're sharing their 115-acre farm with the Marcellus Shale industry.
A puddle along a country road in southern Fayette County is a natural spring, an artesian well, but it's not the spring that's making it bubble.
David Headley told Action News investigator Jim Parsons that he wasn't really sure when he first noticed it, but he said, "We've seen it bubbling now for the last couple of years."
About the same time, nearby gas wells were drilled on Headley's property. He invited Parsons to do what he did when he first saw the bubbles: flick a lighter.
"Is that really water burning?" Parsons asked Headley.
When Headley placed a funnel over the bubbles, the flame stayed lit.
"The horses used to drink out of this spring, and the deer and the coon. All those animals have since left. Nothing will drink out of it. There's not a footprint around this well at all," said Headley.
But that's not what angers Headley the most.

Halliburton and other companies are pumping chemicals into the ground beneath Wyoming to lubricate cracks created during fracking, which allows sand to slide in and hold the cracks open so natural gas can be extracted.
[...]Freshly baked bread is a treat that will impress your guests. It is not a lot of work if you have a stand mixer. Allow about 4 hours from start to ready to slice, but most of that is inactive time. Bread is also great for fare la scarpetta, cleaning every last drop of sauce from your plate with bread. This bread has a great crust and neutral flavor that doesn’t overpower the food. This is the reason why I do not generally bake bread stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes, olives, or the like, because then the bread would play the lead rather than a supporting role.

A mysterious ailment appears to have expanded drastically in the past year, wiping out as many as half of the hives needed to pollinate much of America’s produce.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The bees at our house seem to get lost from their hives now too. They would never be in the house before, but now they come in, look weak and die. I hope they figure this our soon and are willing to stop using materials that harm the bees.
The new GE wind turbine is billed as the “world’s most efficient high-output wind turbine,” so even though this item hasn’t gotten past the prototype stage we’ve been keeping up with the latest developments. If it lives up to its promise, the new 2.5-120, which GE prefers to call a “brilliant” wind turbine rather than just plain old smart, will result in a significant expansion of global wind power harvesting potential. It is specifically designed to draw cost-effective wind power out of low speed, less-than-ideal sites, and that could put more locally generated clean energy within reach of more communities.
Is the U.S. government doing this prior to seizing control of all food production and storage facilities?
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Ok, be sure to follow the links in this. Obama did not do this out of the blue, but expanded and resigned a 1950 act. The article does not link us to the old act, mention it or detail the changes made. The author does make good points to consider now that we seem to live in a world that has corporate interest ahead of citizen interest and so many of our officials form local elected and appointed officials staright up to the White House are in debt to these interest.
Being a Catholic country, Father’s Day is Italy is celebrated on March 19, the feast of St. Joseph. The feast is associated with a number sweet and savory dishes, but none more so perhaps than the fancy, sweet version of zeppole usually called, appropriately enough, zeppole di san Giuseppe. Sweet zeppole are made with a cooked dough enriched with butter and eggs, formed into little balls and deep fried and, more often than not, filled with crema pasticcera or pastry cream.
