Solar powered cars for the sunny southern states

Atleast the desert state-nevada and the other states that burn during summer months must consider using solar powered cars as an attempt to deaddict from the gasoline dependancy..we don't want to go back to horse drawn carts(poor horses), we can do the bicycles, but for long distance summer road trips, solar powered cars are definitely a good idea.

Moderate Earthquake shakes LA

This just happenned a good 20-25 min ago.Moderate i.e 5.8 Richter scale magnitude earthquake with the epicenter 47 km from LA civic center has been reported.
suddenly, we all become so small, we are all at the mercy of earth and the environment.Hmmmm.
The thing is, our buildings per say , not to be in a positiion to withstand anything but perfect weather.Seriously, we need to stop building homes and offices with stucco based stuff.
where did all that rock based building technology go?
they just booard up some timber and then call it a home..This sucks
No wonder the buildings were swaying this way.
Seriously, we need to go back to building real homes with concrete or cement and rock and granite.Not some fragile boards.

A solar powered farm tractor..Now that is organic

No,Seriously, I was doing some chores in the kitchen and musing over how chopped up fish as organic manure doesn't appeal to me at all, as a vegetarian.
on the other hand, a solar powered tractor in my view would the way of the future in natural farming methods while still having the benefit of modern technology.Solar powered farm tractors..good idea dontcha think?

What is with the Local grown food craze?Does it work or matter at all?

well, sometimes, people continue doing things that actually damage the ecology in a bigger way and then pretend that they are saving the ecology by trying and doing less useful things like this recent , Locally grown food , craze.
I call it craze, because first off,,it would not make much of a difference to the ecology if you eat locally grown food and yet burn gasoline like hell in your cars and eat animals.
Let me tell you why the Locally grown food craze is a fad.
The very reason why importing of foods started was to meet food shortages and to make nutritious vegetables available in regions which wont be able to grow vegetables year round.esp in snow wridden areas..So, yeah,, did a great job of making sure, we can sustain ourselves and have access to fruits and vegetables even in the winters in snowy regions..So, i don't see the point when people suddenly want to eat only locally grown food..Seriously, the very fact that for fifty years or so, we have already imported and used green revolution practices and this has already introduced newer plants to our region which were not native to our region anyways.Including potatoes and tomatoes which were not native to any of the regions where it is being extensively used in the cuisine in this century.I mean, will you stop eating potatoes and tomatoes, and aubergines and peppers to go back the ecology that was there in north america a good 300yrs ago?OH, no,,right?
So, i would really appreciate if people concentrate on real methods to deal with not altering the ecology rather than pretend to do something by eating locally grown food..For all you know, we will have to starve if we eat only locally grown food in the 6inches of snow..So, please, start doing the basics first and then think about the locally grown food.Would you stop using the car as much?no..oh , no..that would be inconvenient you won't do that , will ya? well,,, first try doing that,,try using the bicycle real things that will make an impact..then you can allow yourself to go crazy over the organic food and locally grown foods..k?

How preserved/processed foods can be potentially carcinogenic(cancer causing)

Copyright 2008 Le Cinq Blog Dr.A.R All rights reserved
There has been an escalation of cancer incidence in the past couple of decades.

This is sometimes attributed to the increase in expected lifespan which inturn increases the chances of cell signals to get misfired as they get older.

While this is definitely a valid argument,I somehow think that this increased incidence of cancer occurance even in younger age groups as is the increased incidence of allergies and other disorders irrespective of age groups is primarily due to the increased consumption of processed foods and/or consumption of foods with preservatives.

What do preservatives essentially do?

Preservatives essentially make sure that the cells in foods do not continue undergoing physiological changes so that the state in which they have been packed at is retained.This can essentially be achieved only if all cell processes are arrested .This causes the cells to be either killed or frozen in steady state.,Which is why freezing is a very effective method of preservation and less harmful when compared to preservation of foods using chemical preservatives.

chemical preservatives prevent any cellular ripening progression or biological degradation by essentially stopping all cellular processes .Many of them also act in a way to prevent microbial growth in already prepared and packed food.The microbial cellular processes though different from our cells, sometimes there are processes that are very similar, and therefore, these preservatives are very well capable of acting on human cellular processes as well, which include not just acting on the human digestive tract cells that come in contact with food but also those organs in general that take part in removing unwanted substances from the body in the form of detoxification or excretion.
Essentially, any non nutritious substance get removed straight away and this includes drugs or prservatives , chemicals, dyes,and even alcohol.These preservatives thus put a lot of stress on the liver and kidney to work extra harder.
It would be therefore a great idea to eat foods that are fresh rather than those that have been sitting in neat lil packets on supermarket shelves containing food that would go rotten by the time the pack is picked up had there not been any added preservatives.If at all you need to pick up food that is not fresh, it is alway better to choose frozen foods aka frozen vegetables etc rather than canned vegetables that have added calcium gluconate to maintain color.If at all you need to pick up canned foods, choose ones that have been canned in pure brine instead of ones that have added calcium gluconate etc.Take time to read food labels and look at ingredients when you pick up canned foods.One that says, 'water and salt' is better than one that says 'water, salt, calcium gluconate' etc.
Also, while using fresh veggies, it is always a good idea to run flowing water over veggies to run off any pesticides sticking to them or any microbes sticking to the surface.There is absolutely no necessity to wash veggies with detergents and such.Plain forcefully running water is abrasive enough to remove most contaminants.

What is wrong with Wild animals on Talk shows !

Okay, i see more and more talk shows where they invite this "expert" who comes there and brings along all kinds of wild animals and then proceeds to bring them out there and demonstrate things.
What is wrong with this scenario?
First off, WILD ANIMALS, are supposed to be wild.
This attempt tobring them out to talk shows is posed as an attempt to educate about these animals.
But what this act is actually eventually ending up doing is indirectly indicating that it is alright to chain and domesticate and cage wild animals.
Wild animals are supposed to be wild
.They are not suppossed to be caged that way or belted that way or be brought to shooting studios full of audience.
Even if one such animal is being used as their ''alleged" attempt at educating people about more such similar animals out there in the wild, It is still wrong, coz one animal eventually is getting domesticated and trained to understand that it will be fed for every act of listening to the human that will feed it .
This is much akin to teaching animals tricks.These tricks essentially are only for the amusement of the human viewers.Teaching animals tricks is essentially a self affirmation attempt of humans where they as humans are amused and feel better and feel a sense of achievement that they taught an animal a trick.The animal doesn't get amused by itself except for the fact that it gets a treat of food for each action that it performs, an action that it naturally is not inclined to perform. It doesn't really care about the trick at all.It just thinks of it as a food gaining attempt.It is like training lab rats to do tricks to be fed.This is just wrong.
So, yeah, coming back to bringing wild animals to television studios, there are far better and correct ways of educating the public.For eg videos of animals in their natural environment where we as intruders hide and video tape them while they go around behaving normally in their normal environment, rather than capture that animal, cage it and train it to behave in lure of a food treat and bring them to telvised studios to "EDUCATE" people.
Come on!Hyprocritical excuses to do wrong things is not acceptable.

Have you heard of the WATER FOOTPRINT?How vegetarianism can help in dealing with foodshortage

A lot of people have started using the word CARBON FOOTPRINT more and more in their conversations, just like , using the word , 'Going Green', or the word, ORGANIC, has become another fad.
The part of this whole repeated misuse or overuse of the word without actually ever really understanding the concept of it or without actually truly doing something about it, is what irritates me very much and each time some ill informed person just goes yada yada yada about green or organic or most recently carbon footprint, All i want to do is make them sit down and then proceed to ask them to explain the concept to me.
Anyways, let us come back to CARBON FOOTPRINT.This is a broad indicater of how much of the non renewable resources have each one of us as single entity used up .The larger the footprint , the larger the wastage that has been done by us.
Now, A waterfootprint is much the same, the amount of water that one wastes and the amount that one doesnt need to waste or the water that they could have prevented from getting wasted had they been careful .
For eg. you know we spend so much of water feeding a cow,, approximately 40L of water, just so that we could drink a Litre of milk.So, we have had to invest 40L of good to drink water for just a mere 1L of milk
I mean, really, it is absolutely wastage.Soymilk prepared from beans uses water to grow the plants but ofcourse that is all it needs besides soil minerals.
One pound of soybeans , Yield a lot of soymilk besides the byproducts thereof after the milk has been extracted which are absolutely edible and rich in minerals.
We could very well, skip the step of feeding the cow the soybeans and then drinking the meagre yield of cow's milk
The cow needs to be fed as well, besides being given water, to produce a Litre of cow's milk.
Get my point?
we could have saved that much of food and that much of water, had we decided to just go ahead and drink soymilk .While excluding a step in the foodchain we save a lot of resources.
We feed the cow, corn and soybeans ,peanuts and what not, which for a fact , could actually be useful as food to us ourselves.Thus, by eating that very corn and by eating soybeans and peanuts and not breeding more cows just to be slaugthered, we are actually countering the food shortage.A 40L of water would be enough for twenty people for a day.The amount of feed that a cow feeds per day would be enough as filling meals for five or six people.
Simply said, if we can eat wheat and carrots and soybeans and corn ourselves, why go ahead and feed pounds and pounds of that to a cow and finally kill the cow after having fed the cow for months this way?
Had we been a tiger or a lion or an alligator which cannot survive on carrots or soybeans , i would never have suggested this idea.
Afterall, our ancestoral primates were herbivores.We sure can go back to that and save the environment.

Do you know of the water foot print?

NO , we are not the top of the food chain

No , we are not carnivores.
We are descendants of herbivores.
We dont have any natural body mechanism that would help us hunt and eat just like a REAL CARNIVORE like a lion or tiger has.
We don't have heavy paws or claws or powerful heavy jaws or a heavy body.
We are small and tiny with no natural claws and paws and we have long intestines like that of herbivores.
btw, the word omnivore is a very convenient term to include groups of animals that would eat anything and everything just coz it is hungry and that would perhaps include cows being fed ground offals of other slaughtered cows at the farm.
So, yeah, we are not on top of the food chain.
Either ways, the food chain has no top or bottom.As the word says, a food chain is a chain.It has no top or bottom.It is a cycle.
Plant makes food from the sun.we eat plants.we shit .plants use that and grow again.WE die, we disintegrate into the soil, plant uses that. thus the cycle goes on.
Anways,we need to go back to our very original food patterns and save ourselves from a lot of ailments including obesity and colon cancer.
