This New Neighborhood Will Grow Its Own Food, Power Itself, And Handle Its Own Waste

This New Neighborhood Will Grow Its Own Food, Power Itself, And Handle Its Own Waste | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it
ADELE PETERS 05.25.16 6:00 AM
If you live inside one of the houses in a new neighborhood being built in an Amsterdam suburb, your dining room might be next to an indoor vegetable garden. Outside, you'll have another seasonal garden. And down the street, almost everything you eat will be grown in high-tech vertical farms.

The neighborhood will be the first ReGen Village, a new type of community designed to be fully self-sufficient, growing its own food, making its own energy, and handling its own waste in a closed loop.

Repetición de mantras (Investigación sobre reducción de estrés)

Repetición de mantras (Investigación sobre reducción de estrés) | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it

What is a Mantram?

*A mantram (Sanskrit word meaning “to cross the mind”) is a word of power, a deeper inner level of speech containing divine syllables or sounds that have been handed down for generations. Mantrams have spiritual associations and when repeated silently, continually, throughout the day or night, mantram repetition helps one to:

1. Focus attention

2. Slow thinking for mental clarity, increased awareness

3. Interrupt the stress response

4. Produce a mental change in the person who uses it

5. Tap inner spiritual resources

6. Transform consciousness

(Note: “Mantram Repetition” used here is taught according to guidelines of Sri Eknath Easwaran, a spiritual teacher of meditation, from the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Tomales, CA. www.easwaran.org.)

"What's the difference between a college and a university? Who are undergraduate students versus graduate students? What's the FAFSA? Studying in the United States can be confusing if you don't fully understand the words used in U.S. higher education. With that in mind, U.S. News has compiled a glossary of important terms specifically for international students and parents. While this list is not exhaustive, it offers a key starting point as you explore the best U.S. universities for you."
