Breaking down one of the most difficult types of trash, this incredible working incubator turns sterilized plastic remnants into nutritional biomass humans can consume and digest, in short: food. Texture, taste and flavor depend upon the strain of fungus, but reportedly can be quite strong as well as quite sweet.
Livin Studio, an Austrian design group known for innovative work on insect farms, has built a working model of this growth sphere (dubbed the Fungi Mutarium) that takes parts of mushrooms usually left uneaten and grows them into fresh snacks. (more…)
Inspired by 90-year old Arnold Abbott (arrested for feeding the homeless), We Are Change Colorado donates Nature’s Path Organic bars and fruit to the homeless at the Denver Rescue Mission. Huge thanks to Christina Tobin – Founder of Free and Equal Elections – for donating the Nature’s Path bars and sharing this idea originally!
Importantly, this action started out front of Denver’s Federal Reserve Bank – one of the branches of America’s privately owned central bank granted with the power of creating currency out of thin air and charging interest on it. The Federal Reserve’s exponential currency creation has led to the devaluation of the currency in circulation and impoverished people around America and the world. If we want to change the effects, we must acknowledge the cause! We must BE THE CHANGE! (more…)
Thank God for Noam Chomsky. Not for his lifetime of eviscerating assaults on our political hypocrisy, but for his linguistics. Long before I knew him, undergraduate Fisk laboured at his university linguistics course, where Chomsky’s work first alerted me to the pernicious use of language. Hence I condemn at once the vile semantics of the Pentagon and the CIA. Not just that old, wolfish, obscene phrase “collateral damage”, but the language of torture.
Or, as the lads who torture on our behalf call it, “enhanced interrogation techniques”. Let’s take a closer look at that. “Enhanced” is a word of improvement. It suggests something better, more learned, even less costly. For example, “enhanced medicine” would presumably involve a more streamlined way of improving your health. Just as “enhanced schooling” would suggest a more worthy education for a child. “Interrogation” at least gives a hint of what this is all about. Asking questions and getting – or not getting – a reply. But “techniques” beats the lot. A technique is a technical skill, is it not? Usually, so my dictionary tells me, in artistic work. (more…)
In recent years, vaccines have meshed with the world of nanobot medicine. Particles the size of nanometers – approximately 100,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. They are programmable, spontaneously assembling and can permeate every area of the body, including a placenta. Previously, Brandon Turbeville reported on Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation work with developing “on demand” nano vaccines using genetically engineered proteins.
That’s one thing – now it’s possible to produce the effect of nano medicine with larger objects. That is, a non-surgical, injectable and spontaneously assembling structure.
Enter: a constant 3-D vaccine in the form of a lump of particles injected below the skin. One that would manipulate cells, as well as release biological and chemical drug components. They have already been trialed on mice.
Some countries listen to their people, others ignore them in a blind race to boost biotech profits. The German poultry giant, Wiesenhof, has announced a big shift in their business model. They will go back to using GM-free animal feed due to the insistence of their customer base.
A Wiesenhof representative said, non-GM poultry is “desired by customers”. The company states that previously there was a shortage of GMO-free soy, other animal feed is now too easily contaminated, and the legal risk of using GMOs in their products is uncertain. (more…)
One of the problems with pharmaceuticals (as opposed to most natural remedies) is the fact that, whenever you swallow a pill or receive an injection, you are forced to place your trust in whoever manufactured the medication.
There is no way to determine beforehand whether or not the dose you are taking is safe and effective — you can only rely on the assumption that the drug has been manufactured according to rigorous standards and thoroughly tested in regard to its efficacy and purity. (more…)
