How a Little Junior High Stole the Profits from a National Portrait Chain
An industry disruption that sparked, then fizzled for lack of school district courage — These days it seems teachers are always begging for money. As a classroom teacher, I was the biggest benefactor of my own program. My personal philosophy was: This is my career, and I’m not planning to spend my entire career just getting by with the school district’s miserly resources. My…
The Nuts & Bolts of Foolproof Sourdough Bread
A simple guide to a healthy loaf of sourdough bread without the guesswork I’m not a baker by trade. I’m a retired teacher with plenty of time to work through the sourdough process. I’ve done so enough times that I can consistently produce a beautiful loaf of artisan, sourdough bread…
No idea, but if we don't do it nature will enforce its own limit on human kind the hard way. It just makes more sense to me to avoid the pain.
…nstinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A vi…
We are doing our worst. We have doubled the human population in the last 50 years.
The problem is that there is no morally acceptable way to reduce population.
Only if you discount our problems.
Only if you discount our problems. Water is a good example. Regardless of distribution due to changing weather patterns we have the exact same amount of water on the planet as we did in 1950. Yet since that time we have added 5.23 billion people. How can that not impact…
All these technicalities would be of no concern to you in a fairy-tale world of infinite resources, where coal, gas, oil, minerals, forests never deplete, and which could take up an unlimited amount o…
Yes, we live on a finite planet where we have doubled the human population in the last 50 years.
If we are in an extreme drought as told, then are we not suffering a dire lack of leadership regarding it?
You nailed it. Wouldn't want to piss off the voters during an election year.
So I had to ask myself if it wasn’t a bit ridiculous to save what little water I do use when people all around me are wasting it as if it was actually falling from the sky when it is not.
Especially when you watch it running down the street from overwatering lawns.
ve and will certainly need. In …to no communication about our drought going on throughout the state as one would reasonably expect. For one example, in my last bill from Cal Water (my local water company), there was no noticeable mention of a drought or what measures everyone should be taking to protect what water we do have and will certainly need. In the past, the neon warning signs along state highways announced that we were in a severe drought…
