Stephen Jepson believes the key to never losing your balance -- or your mind -- is in the games and activities of our youth. Wait until you see his incredible playground...

Castor Oil Uses: The Benefits of Using This Simple Home Remedy

Castor Oil Uses: The Benefits of Using This Simple Home Remedy | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it
Castor oil benefits are well-known ever since the ancient times, but did you know that this home remedy is also used as a chemical warfare agent?

 

Folk healers around the world have used castor oil to treat a wide variety of ailments.

You are probably aware that castor oil is regarded by some as a remedy for constipation.

 

But you may not be aware of its reported use as an antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal, or that it has been used topically to treat a variety of skin conditions, reduce pain, and stimulate your immune system.

 

Story at-a-glance

 

** Castor oil, derived from the castor seed [Ricinus communis] http://bit.ly/ILB1aw (which is not really a bean), has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of health conditions, although scientific studies are few; there are reports of some side negative effects from castor oil, so you should proceed with caution in experimenting with its use
** Castor seeds contain very high concentrations of a special fatty acid called ricinoleic acid, thought to underlie its healing properties
** Castor beans also contain a potent toxin called ricin—so deadly that it’s used for chemical warfare—but don’t worry, this agent is NOT present in the oil
** Castor oil is claimed to treat gastrointestinal and genitourinary problems, all types of infections, and pain and inflammation, and is said to stimulate your immune system;science is also exploring the use of ricinas an antitumor agent
** Advocates claim castor oil is most effective for strengthening your lymphatic system when it is applied topically in a “castor oil pack,” a treatment popularized by the late psychic healer Edgar Cayce

Ephemeral islands and other states-in-waiting

Ephemeral islands and other states-in-waiting | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it
architectural conjecture :: urban speculation :: landscape futures...

 

In the 1960s when the island of Surtsey (literally) erupted onto the scene off the coast of Iceland, it's national sovereignty was not really called into question.  The seamount, or near island named Ferdinandea in the Mediterranean is not even an island yet and countries are already positioning themselves to claim it.  Only 6 feet below sea level, this seamount is incredibly valuable real estate because is a country can successfully came this territory, they could also lay claim to an Exclusive Economic Zone, extending up to 200 nautical miles beyond the coast.

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, April 24, 2014 8:23 PM

When I read something like this all I can think is maybe this is what happened to Atlantis.  What if Atlantis was an island like this that existed just long enough for people to build a society on and then it sank beneath the sea.  Another think this makes me think of is the novel “Jingo” by Terry Pratchett, in it an island rises from the sea and leads to a war over which country owns it.  This is just an interesting phenomenon that leads to world arguments.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, December 15, 2014 4:29 PM

The EEZ policy that exist has made every space up for contentious conflict. The miles off the coast of Surtsey and other small islands have become valuable because of EEZ and conflict exist over islands that are uninhabited and useless. Economic geography can influence political geography when it comes to these small island and their exclusive economic zone.

Felix Ramos Jr.'s curator insight, March 12, 2015 10:46 AM

You have to be joking with me!!!!!!!!

 

Claims for a volcanic-induced mass of land?  In this day and age, one would hope that something like this would not lead to a long and drawn-out dispute.  There is much more pertinent issues present in this world.


 How about this for an idea?  Let's leave the "island" neutral and allow it it to be used as a temporary destination for whomever visits it.  It should be protected and preserved by everyone interested but not so much that visitors cannot temporarily explore and enjoy the island.

Backwards Beekeepers: Planting for pollinators

Backwards Beekeepers: Planting for pollinators | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it

On a recent Saturday morning, several Backwards Beekeepers made the trek out to The Theodore Payne Foundation in Sun Valley for a special class titled Planting for Pollinators. The two hour seminar was tailored for us thanks to fellow member Mark with the educational director of the foundation, Lisa Novich.  In this class Lisa shared the importance of pollinators, plants suited to the differing micro climates and soil conditions, how to maintain bee forage bloom all year-round, and gave us a tour of the nursery so that we could see examples of bee-friendly plants, both potted and full-grown on site.
