Perhaps you have heard of the Slow Food Movement. Begun in Italy, in protest to a McDonalds opening in historic Piazza de Spagna in Rome in 1986, Italian food and wine expert Carlo Petrini led a global protest against fast food. Proponents of the slow food movement believe that food should be grown and bought locally, prepared with care, and consumed with appreciation while preserving traditional and regional cuisine. Enter Slow Fashion. The term “Slow Fashion” was coined in a 2007 article by Kate Fletcher published in The Ecologist )where she states, “Slow fashion is about designing, producing, consuming and living better. Slow fashion is not time-based but quality-based (which has some time components). Slow is not the opposite of fast – there is no dualism – but a different approach in which designers, buyers, retailer...

An activist group says it has gathered 40,000 signatures demanding Wasserman Schultz’ ouster and today, television viewers in her South Florida district are seeing TV and cable ads that include a recent news clip in which she calls payday lending “unfortunately … necessary.”    “What’s truly ‘unfortunate’ is that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is still refusing to put her constituents and millions of vulnerable Americans ahead of an industry that has given her more than $68,000 in campaign cash,” said Karl Frisch, executive director of Allied Progress, a liberal advocacy group.  Opponents of the measure Wasserman Schultz is co-sponsoring say it would encourage states to adopt the “Florida ...

Technology: 21 of the most important inventions of the 21st century

The human race has always innovated, and in a relatively short time went from building fires and making stone-tipped arrows to creating smartphone apps and autonomous robots. Today, technological progress will undoubtedly continue to change the way we work, live, and survive in the coming decades. Since the beginning of the new millennium, the world has witnessed the emergence of social media, smartphones, self-driving cars, and autonomous flying vehicles. There have also been huge leaps in energy storage, artificial intelligence, and medical science. Men and women have mapped the human genome and are grappling with the ramifications of biotechnology and gene editing.  We are facing immense challenges in global warming and food security, among many other issues. While human innovation has contributed to many of the problems we are facing, it is also human innovation and ingenuity that can help humanity deal with these issues. These are 21 strategies that could avert climate disaster.  24/7 Wall St. examined media reports and other sources on the latest far-reaching innovations to find some of the most important 21st-century inventions. In some cases, though there were some precu...

I am going to give the warm water discharges around the Bay a go in two

I am going to give the warm water discharges around the Bay a go in two weeks. Until then, post your fishing reports, discussions, and questions in this thread. For folks looking for deals, Amazon is selling Penn Slammer reels for $180. That is about 30% off MSRP. (Use the TKP link in the upper right corner if you are going to order fishing gear from Amazon, much obliged) Well, I’ve decided not to let the stripers get the best of me and I plan to keep the boat ready for a good day and one last try. The local guides and charter guys say the fish are late moving down the Bay due to early warm temps, and if so, there should still be some fish out there to chase. Not too optimistic since I’ve fished after the season the last four year without raising a fish, seeing feeding birds or even another fool like me out there looking for one more crumb in the bread bag. Warm water discharges are the way to go in winter, but I don’t trust my trailer to travel to the closest one to me, and while I’ve tried to get a few folks to take me, I’ve had zip for luck getting anyone interested. I really miss my old walleye fishing and even winter smallmouth and/or musky fis...

Jairus Lamwe collects eggs in his poultry housing unit where he keeps 1,200 chickens in two 13m by 6m poultry structures under the battery cage system. PHOTO | ELIZABETH OJINA | NATION MEDIA GROUP  The 50 by 80 metres farm on the outskirts of Kakamega town is neatly arranged, with two chicken houses occupying a section, while the family house another. Jairus Lamwe, the owner of the farm named Jay, is arranging 20 90kg bags of layers mash he had just received when we arrive. He has 15 cages measuring 2m by 1.8m by 1.6m each. Each cage has a capacity to hold 120 birds but he keeps 90 birds in each, with a cubicle holding three birds. “I collect 18 trays daily and sell them across Kakamega County at Sh280 per tray,” says Lamwe, noting he will dispose the birds at Sh200 in December and bring in another batch of 600. He bought 500 day-old chicks and kept them in the brooder for about two months as he waited for the cages he had bought online at Sh300,000 from China to arrive. “I searched online and came across photos of the battery cage system. I realised it had immense benefits, thus, could serve my production needs,” says Lamwe, who is a pilot in the military and has invested close...

Wood burning banned in the Phoenix area on New Year’s Eve

PHOENIX — For those who enjoy the crackle of a warm fire on a cold day, Maricopa County says not so fast. A combination of still air and the expectations of fireworks around Phoenix on New Year’s Eve have put the kibosh on wood-burning fires on Tuesday. The county also projects Wednesday to be a no-burn day as well. “What we do is we ask residents, on no-burn days, not to burn wood for several reasons. The obvious reason is the health of our neighbors,” said Bob Huhn, communications director of the Maricopa County Air Quality Department. “We want people to be outside, to exercise, to go about their daily life without medical challenges,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. For those hoping to enjoy the hypnotic dance of the flame on these cold nights, the county has one alternative: “Gas, by far. That’s a cleaner – and that’s why we have our ‘Burn Cleaner, Burn Better’ campaign,” said Huhn. “We ask people not to burn wood whenever possible.” To help reduce the number of wood-burning fireplaces, the county has a program to help certain residents with vouchers to convert wood-burning fireplaces to gas-burning.   The program is called Maricopa County Fireplace Retrofitting Program. F...

Practically everybody in Washington is mad at Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. David Cicilline might actually

Practically everybody in Washington is mad at Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google. David Cicilline might actually do something about it. “If we don’t fix this, we’re not going to have a democracy anymore,” David Cicilline gravel-voiced into the microphone, as go-go music thumped behind him. Just that morning, Cicilline’s Democratic colleagues in the House had started impeachment hearings for President Donald Trump, and spirits were high at this left-leaning gathering on a November night at the bar Baby Wale in Washington’s Shaw neighborhood. Yet the existential threat to the republic under consideration was not the occupant of the Oval Office but something Cicilline and his allies see as another dire menace: Silicon Valley. People all over the political map are angry at the American tech industry right now, from Democrats who want to break up the “big four” of Apple, Amazon, Google and Facebook to Republicans—including Trump himself—who think the industry and its products are biased against conservatives. Cicilline, however, is in a position to do something about it. He’s the chairman of the House subcommittee on antitrust, which makes him the only Democrat in Washington running ...

Think Middle East, and you think oil. But many other sectors in the region need lifting

Think Middle East, and you think oil. But many other sectors in the region need lifting gear, as Julian Champkin discovers. Oil may well be the driving force of most of the economies of the Middle East, but the wealth it provides is funding a multitude of construction projects. Some are routine, some are huge, some are downright astonishing; and those projects need lifting gear. So by no means all of the crane market of the region is devoted to oil. “Currently the Middle East is experiencing a boom in architecture and design of astonishing projects that are pushing the limits of engineering,” says Kieve Pinto, executive director of Al Faris, one of the biggest crane owners in the region. Its fleet currently consists of over 800 mobile cranes and almost 70 crawlers. “The demand is to go bigger and bigger, in shorter timeframes. This typically requires larger and heavier cranes,” he says. “We are continuing to invest and grow our fleet and capabilities and are beginning to tap into and experience a steady rise in heavy lift opportunities.” The region’s preference for mobile cranes is well known, says Pinto; “but the crawler crane’s strength and capacity makes it indispensible for ...
