Cooking without Electricity: Non-Electric Kitchen Appliances

Cooking without Electricity: Non-Electric Kitchen Appliances | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tomorrow | Scoop.it

Cooking without electricity in a power outage doesn't just mean finding an alternative way to cook food. In our modern world, most of our kitchen appliances are electric as well. If we were ever without electricity, we would need an alternative way to complete the tasks that are now accomplished using appliances.

If bees go extinct, this is what your supermarket will look like | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Over the past decade, bee populations have been dropping, partly as a result of a disease called colony collapse disorder. This is very bad news for humans, because bees are a crucial part of the reproductive cycle of many of our favorite foods, including apples, onions, avocados, and more. This incredible data visualization shows what you'd lose if the world lost bees.

"Humans, over thousands of years, had never been able to deal with Nature's complexity. But we biologists and ecologists had never tackled anything as complex as this.

 

So rather than reinvent the wheel, I began studying other professions to find out if anybody had. And I found that there were planning techniques that I could take and adapt to our biological need and from those I developed what we call holistic management and planned grazing, a planning process. And that does address all of Nature's complexity *and* our social, environmental, economic complexity..."

The Fourth Phase Of Water - What You Don’t Know About Water… And Really Should

The Fourth Phase Of Water - What You Don’t Know About Water… And Really Should | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tomorrow | Scoop.it

Respected health researcher Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Gerald Pollack, PhD about the new discoveries being called “The Fourth Phase Of Water”, beyond solid, liquid and vapor.

Allen David Reed's curator insight, November 14, 2013 9:57 PM

----------------------------------

It has been well known by the truly ‘awake ones’ over the millennia of time that water is crucial to life.  In fact, as Dr. Pollack points out, it is core to life.  Any intelligent Being would immediately see that there must be a reason for this, rather than dismiss water out of hand as some meaningless substance, as most of our ‘post modern’ scientists now do.

 

Water is consciousness - at least the form of water Dr. Pollack is speaking of - and this is a taboo subject in today’s commercial world of life-robbing sugar soda and fluoride.  If you step back and connect the dots, and understand the agenda by some to harness you like a battery as was made popular in the movie “The Matrix”, you will quickly get that you’re being sold down the proverbial river of ‘da-nile’, that is, until you choose to be Sovereign in your BEINGHOOD.

 

As I discuss in BEINGHOOD - Book One, water is love, water is the carrier of memory, water is intelligent, water is alive, and living water (until you kill it as we mostly do now in our modern plumbing and microwave ovens) is a crucial source in your ascension to BEINGHOOD, your longevity and just plain happiness!  Cranky, angry people are acidic, positively charged, and for the most part living inside of negative, limited Fear-Based Worldviews.

 

Choose to love your Self, choose consciously living, structured, clustered, negatively charged water, become alkaline in your diet, get grounded, get lots of sun and expand your awareness with gratitude for all of the consciousness that is everywhere and you will quickly find yourself living in a parallel universe of joy and abundance.

Scientists race to save 'genomic books' in the burning 'library of life'

Scientists race to save 'genomic books' in the burning 'library of life' | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tomorrow | Scoop.it

Researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) have developed a cost-effective way to save a wide range of threatened species, including rare old ones that may be costly to protect. Their new technique to help maximise both the species and genetic diversity we save helps resolve the dilemma facing conservation managers worldwide: whether to rescue a larger number of recent and more common species or fewer, unique and older species that may be more costly to preserve.


The technology will help nations such as Australia and New Zealand to protect as much diversity of both species and their genes as possible, says lead researcher Dr Joseph Bennett of CEED and The University of Queensland (UQ). "The global extinction crisis is getting worse, and conservation funds are seldom enough to stop biodiversity from declining," says Dr Bennett. "This is like a library on fire – and we have to save as much of the precious information as we can.


"If we have to choose, do we carry out a few rare, old tomes, or do we carry a larger number of smaller books that may contain less information than the ancient tomes?" Dr Bennett explains that highly distinct species have few close relatives, and their lineage has been isolated on the tree of life for many millions of years. The platypus is one example of Australia's 'rare old tomes' – its ancestors diverged from other mammals somewhere between 160 and 200 million years ago.


As the distinct species are isolated from others, they also contain unique genes, which may in the future prove very important to the health of ecosystems, or even the development of medicine. For example, Ginkgo biloba is an old and genetically distinct species that was once close to extinction, but is now used traditional medicine, he says.


"So losing the more distinct species – akin to losing the rare old tome – could mean the loss of this genetic information, along with millions of years of evolution," he says. "But when these species are expensive to protect, it may mean spending money to save one or two species instead of five or ten other species."
