    Zero Hedge ^ | 1/23/2017 | Tyler Durden
    In Part One of this article I explored Thomas Paineís critical role in the creation of our nation. His Common Sense pamphlets inspired the common people to uncommon acts of courage and heroic feats of valor; leading to the great experiment we call the United States of America. Paine, Franklin and the other Founding Fathers produced a republic, if we could keep it....snip If you are blind to the parallels with our current position in this Fourth Turning, you are either wallowing in willful ignorance or you are a functionary within the debased establishment. One of Paineís main themes was...

While speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday, the 41-year-old celebrity chef expressed his concern for the fate of First Lady Michelle Obamaís beloved White House vegetable garden once Trump takes term on Friday. ďThereís a symbolic visual,Ē Oliver said during the discussion. ďIf you cut down that garden then youíre cutting down hope.

    The ghost pepper is one of the worldís hottest peppers, with a Scoville rating of more than a million. So it might follow that you shouldnít ingest it in more than tiny quantities. And yet, the Journal of Emergency Medicine reports on the unusual case of a man who tore a hole in his esophagus after eating an incredibly hot ghost pepper. The 47-year-old American ate a burger topped with a ďghost pepper pureeĒ as part of an eating contest. YouTube is rife with video of people eating these things, so you can probably guess how this one went: The...

    Presenting YAUGU (yet another urban grow unit). We've highlighted many variations of indoor gardening systems over the years, some of them simple and low tech and some of them with decidedly 'smart' features, and all of them with the same goal: to help people grow some of their own food inside their homes. You don't necessarily need one of these purpose-built growing units to start an indoor garden, as DIY versions can be much cheaper to build (although perhaps lacking some of the automated features), but for those who aren't into making their own indoor planters, there are certainly many...

    Greetings All; Here is another thought provoking discussion on what we can do when the world we know & love falls apart.

    The researchers think it is likely that most flowering plants, or angiosperms, contain similar sucrose-susceptible genes, making their ďsweetening technologyĒ widely applicable. Credit: Cienpies Design ================================================================================================= Previous research has shown that the sugar sucrose plays a role in controlling key fruit genes involved in sugar metabolism. Efforts to control these genes succeeded in increasing the sugar content in fruit but also resulted in stunted growth. Researchers from Tohoku University in Japan used a bioinformatics search tool to find nucleotide sequences in the tomato genome similar to a known tobacco gene sequence that can be repressed by sucrose. When a special...
