Thought Trap 3: We’ve Hit the Limits of a Finite Earth

Thought Trap 3: We’ve Hit the Limits of a Finite Earth | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
'Thought Trap 3: We’ve Hit the Limits of a Finite Earth' blog post by Frances Moore Lappé.

"In this second frame, our focus is not on narrowly cutting back but on aligning with the laws of nature to sustain and enhance life. The difference is huge. If we conceive of our challenge as simply squeezing within the limits, our imagination remains locked inside an inherited, unecological world view of separateness and lack — precisely what got us into this mess."

The science of attachment parenting

The science of attachment parenting | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
What scientific studies reveal about attachment parenting.

 

[Following the curation rules, identifying my own comments-GS: I think what hurts this "cause" is that some in the "movement" are separating it as a "movement," or "cause" or something outside the norm. I get that identifying it as a "movement" may bring attention, but it also antagonizes others. "Attachment parenting" is a name that got "attached" to a common sense, evidence-based understanding. It's not meant to be as regimented as some make it, so please don't be put off by it. Children need the connections that are encouraged by these folks. Seriously. Generations of children that were sent off to boarding school so their parents could freely live their own lives should have taught us that much! How much resilience did their kids grow up with?) Okay. Off my soapbox.]

Plastic garbage in oceans: Understanding marine pollution from microplastic particles

Plastic garbage in oceans: Understanding marine pollution from microplastic particles | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
Biologists have prepared guidelines for a more precise investigation into marine pollution from microplastic particles.

  

Large quantities of globally produced plastics end up in the oceans where they represent a growing risk. Above all very small objects, so-called microplastic particles, are endangering the lives of the many sea creatures. An estimate of how greatly the oceans are polluted with microplastic particles has so far failed in the absence of globally comparable methods of investigation and data. Together with British and Chilean colleagues, scientists of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association have now analysed all published studies on this topic and have proposed standardised guidelines for the recording and characterisation of microplastic particles in the sea.

Five Natural & Non-Toxic Methods for Insect Control in Your Garden

Five Natural & Non-Toxic Methods for Insect Control in Your Garden | Mom Ed | Scoop.it

An old friend was lamenting the loss of his chard crop to caterpillars a couple of weeks ago on Facebook. The temptation in these cases is to reach for toxic sprays: your local garden center probably has a wide selection of them. But they’re generally a short-term solution—at best. Nature, however, has been keeping pests in check for a lot longer than any garden spray. . . .

Plant this today for better health

Plant this today for better health | Mom Ed | Scoop.it

"Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant responsible for their beautiful color. This makes for a beautiful fruit and a healthier you. Research has shown that lycopene may lower cardiovascular risk and the risk of some cancers. Plus, the carotenoids (including lycopene) help give skin an even, yellow tone. Tomatoes can even help protect you from sun damage. Who doesn’t want all that?

 

To reap all the health and beauty benefits, plant a tomato today.

 

You don’t need a garden, nor do you need to be a gardener. Take it from me, a tomato plant will grow in a pot, on a ledge, on your desk, and almost anywhere else you can find sun."

I Can't Live Without You: When Unrequited Love Turns Deadly | Mom Ed | Scoop.it

After reviewing existing research and interviewing 18 men convicted of murdering their wives or girlfriends, University of Haifa researchers Aaron Ben-Ze'ev and Ruhama Goussinsky argue that it isn't simply a possessive personality that leads to murder, nor is it accurate to suggest these are merely "crimes of passion."  What makes one man react to unrequited love by murdering his wife or girlfriend, while another walks away and rebuilds his life?
