Watch GM Foods - Bad for Your Body - an EcoTip by Eco Rico on Blip
The Political & Corporate Betrayal of Mankind (by thecrowhouse)
Upward Journey blends elements of Asian music with Western tradition and is in a sense a view of Asian culture through Western eyes. The piece features the shakuhachi, an ancient Japanese flute made from bamboo, as well as koto, a Japanese plucked string instrument, along with their Western orchestral counterparts, the flute and harp. Solo cello is also featured and is invited to imitate the style of an erhu, an Asian bowed string instrument, thus creating a connection between the two music-cultures. The title of the work is intentionally left open to interpretation. As I was writing, I was imagining a group of travelers journeying up a mountain, and the burst of euphoria followed by calm that concludes the piece is my way of representing the feeling of reaching the summit and looking at the world below. However, I urge listeners to interpret the piece in their own ways and let the journey take them where it will.
Premiered by the Wartburg College Chamber Orchestra in 2012, featuring Dr. Eric Wachmann on shakuhachi.
THOUGHTS FROM WITHIN (by voiceyourself)
Drinking enough water is not the only requirement to keep hydrated but so is the type of water you drink. Consider the pH, a measure of how acidic/alkaline water is. pHs of less than 7 indicates acidity, whereas a pH of greater than 7 indicates an alkaline solution. Acidic=double negative bad. pH can be affected by chemicals in the water, so has your drinking water been treated, processed and infected?
If you’re drinking distilled/purified bottled water remember, dangerous toxins from some plastic water bottles can leach into your water. Also, you need to make up for the lack of essential minerals in the water. Basically, distilled/purified water is just cleaned up city water. Obviously, water from wells, springs and geysers are preferred over the tap. Natural spring water or artesian water, comes from an underground source, and contains at least 250 parts per million (ppm) of dissolved solids, including minerals and trace elements.
Some say that Sunflowers were important in daily life among Native Americans and that they took on a significant role in ceremonial dances. Others say Sunflowers symbolize strength and endurance. During the Lakota sun dance ceremony that last for several days, dancers wore large medallions shaped like sunflowers around their necks as they danced continuously throughout the ceremonial event. Talk about summer ending is in the air. Does anyone know when to plant sunflowers? For those who have planted them, what can you share about the seeds? Are they healthy? good for dampness?
