The No on 92 Coalition attempted to place out-of-state election observers in at least four Oregon counties Tuesday, in violation of state law, proponents are complaining. Measure 92, which would require foods containing genetically modified ingredients to be labeled, failed by just 812 votes during the first, computerized tally last month. A hand recount began Tuesday in 19 counties and continues in the rest through Dec. 9.

NEVER Let Your Kids Talk to the Police | The Free Thought Project

The Portland PD, which is under scrutiny by the Justice Department (for whatever good that would do), is notable for the tender solicitude its officers display toward vulnerable children. During a presidential visit by George W. Bush in 2002, police assigned to keep protesters caged in “free speech zones” unleashed a pepper spray fusillade against demonstrators who wandered beyond their pens. Among the victims was Don Joughin, who had brought his wife and three children to the event.

Chemtrails: Fact or Fiction?



Dear Friends,

It doesn't concern me in the least whether or not you come over "on my side" concerning the issue of chemtrails. If you wish to remain ignorant, blind, unobservant, and uninformed, that is your prerogative.… Continue

Calculate Your Power Usage for a Renewable Energy System | Alternative & Renewable Energy - ABS Alaskan, Inc.

Before you start buying components for a home power system, you need to know how much power you use. By taking an inventory of all the electrical loads in your house, and doing a basic electrical load evaluation, you can get a good idea how much power your system needs to produce. If you are designing your power system before building the home, you will need to carefully plan what appliances and electrical systems you will be using. You can use our automatic Load Evaluation Form to simplify your load calculations. Once you enter the necessary information for each appliance in your home, the form will automatically perform the calculations for you. You will find links to the form and its instructions at the bottom of this page. (You need Adobe's Acrobat Reader 4.x or higher to use the automatic calculations. Otherwise, you will need to perform the calculations by hand.)

Drinking water from plastic pipes: Is it harmful? | ScienceDaily

The aim of the study by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health was to investigate whether leakage products from these pipes are harmful to health and if they affect the taste and odour of drinking water. These leakage products consist of residues of additives used during production to give plastic pipes their desired properties, as well as any subsequent breakdown products. There are no health risks associated with drinking water from PEX pipes

PEX tubing | GreenBuildingAdvisor.com

Contamination of drinking water: methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) and tert-Butyl alcohol can leach from PEX in amounts that exceed taste, odor and health guidelines set by the State of California for drinking water. PEX can leach ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE), a chemical in the same family as MTBE, which could contribute to taste and odor impacts, and could potentially lead to adverse health effects. PEX pipe is susceptible to permeation by outside contaminants such as pesticides, oil, gasoline, benzene and termiticides. PEX displayed the strongest biofilm formation and the strongest initial promotion of the growth of Legionella bacteria.

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.

Scientists on where to be in the 21st century based on sustainability | Energy Skeptic

WhereToBe Day2013 good places greenest Five scientists have written a peer-reviewed article about where the best and worst places to be in America are.  They look at how sustainable regions will be in the future, when you take into account climate change, energy reserves, population, sea-level rise, increasingly strong hurricanes, and other factors.  Three of the scientists, John W. Day, David Pimentel and Charles Hall, are “rock stars” in the field of ecology.
