Florida Makes Off-Grid Living Illegal – Mandates All Homes Must Be Connected To An Electricity Grid | Collective-Evolution

It’s no secret that an opposition to sustainable living exists. Earlier this year, Texas state brought several SWAT teams to a sustainable community and threatened to shut it down. Each one of the community members were initially handcuffed at gunpoint. It was called “The Garden of Eden Community,” and was totally self sustainable. You can read more about that here. This time, it’s Robin Speronis that’s come under fire. She lives off the grid in Florida, completely independent of the city’s water and electric system. A few weeks ago, officials ruled her off-grid home illegal.

Robin Williams tributes from Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon: Late night remembers Robin Williams.

For all the great tributes to Robin Williams the last couple of days, many of the best have come from his fellow comedians. The sad news of Williams’ death came too late for many of the late-night shows, which tape earlier in the day, on Monday, so many shared their memories last night. Conan O’Brien kept the tone more light, telling the story of the time Williams tried to cheer him up by buying him a bicycle. It’s worth watching the full clip—O’Brien also shared a clips of Williams’ appearances, calling him “the best talk show guest in the world,” but we’ve also transcribed the story below.

'Redwood Highway' is pokey but downright charming | Los Angeles Times

At one point in the indie drama "Redwood Highway," built around a stubborn retirement home escapee's 80-mile trek through Oregon to reach her granddaughter's beach wedding, Tom Skerritt's wry, kind widower lays his head on star Shirley Knight's shoulder in a way that is somehow bold, gentle, funny and sexy.

The 10 maps that illustrate the healthiest counties in America | The Washington Post

There are any number of ways to measure quality of life across geographic areas: Who has the longest commutes? Who breathes the cleanest air? Where are obesity rates lowest? Who has the most access to exercise facilities?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has the answers. The foundation’s annual County Health Rankings, a joint project with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, use nearly three dozen indicators to pit regions against each other, all in an effort to measure ways to improve health outcomes across the country.

The rankings, released Wednesday, show the counties where residents enjoy higher-than-average health have better access to healthy foods, parks and exercise facilities, where doctors are plentiful and the air is cleaner. Unhealthy atmospheres can lead to lower-than-average graduation rates, higher obesity and denser, more expensive housing conditions (Find the complete report, along with downloadable data, here).

The Solar Technology That Could Solve Californias Water Problem | EcoWatch

The founders of a California company are gearing up to make a difference in their state’s future—about 2 million gallons worth of a difference.

As the state battles a lengthy drought and considers spending $7 billion to $9 billion to produce, transport and store fresh water, WaterFX, a San Francisco-based, independent water producer says it has been testing a potential solution for the past year.

A Simple Solar Oven Makes Salt Water Drinkable | The MindUnleashed

It functions by filling the black boiler with salty sea water in the morning, then tightening the cap. As the temperature and pressure grows, steam is forced downwards through a connection pipe and collects in the lid, which acts as a condenser, turning the steam into fresh water. Once Diamanti established the fundamentals were sound, he experimented with a series of concepts for the aesthetic of the object.

10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical Material World | Collective Evolution

Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda was Tesla’s mentor, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna.
