Originally called Harrowsmith, the magazine was heralded as a back-to-the-land and environmental issues platform. In 1976, founder James M. Lawrence cut and paste the first issues together on a kitchen table in the tiny village of Camden East (pop. 256) in Ontario, Canada. Within two years, the magazine had over 100,000 subscribers and eventually became Canada’s 8th largest magazine.
Mother Earth News embraced the revived interest in the back-to-the-land movement at the beginning of the 1970s, and combined this with an interest in the ecology movement and self-sufficiency. Unlike many other magazines with ecological coverage, Mother Earth News concentrated on do-it-yourself and how-to articles, aimed at the growing number of people moving to the country. As a result, the magazine thrived throughout the 1970s. There were articles on home building, farming, gardening, and entrepreneurism, all with a DIY approach. The subject matter of the articles ranged widely into such subjects as geodesic domes, hunting, food storage, and even a regular column on amateur radio. Alternative energy was a frequent topic covered in the magazine, with articles on how to switch to solar power and wind power, and how to make a still and run your car on ethanol. A series of “Plowboy Interviews” was also a regular feature, which included interviews of environmental leaders and others. With its left of center perspective, The Mother Earth News attracted a wide readership, not only of back to the landers but also others ranging from hippies, to survivalists, to suburban dwellers who dreamed of someday moving to the country, to long-time rural dwellers who found the DIY articles useful.

Its obvious that I don’t know WHY women have litters of kids.
Its also obvious. even without welfare, and baby bonus, that women will continue to have children.
What you are saying is what I have been feed all my life.
It doesn’t compute for the non-elite.
Women marries man, so now she must take care of his parents, maybe also his grand parents, so she gets a littter of kids to raise in hope of having those kids take care of her in her old age.
Geee! Its no wonder that so many kids are leaving their communities to have a life by hidding in the cities.
Those kids might just be rejecting the life of “pregnant and barefoot”.
Can I have a different opinion than ” to support the concept of “family” and insurance in old age? ”
” …Why do you think people in the Third World have so many kids?…”
1. Mothers want to have kids that will suffer and starve to death.
2. Mothers are ignorant about “the pill”.
3. NGO need the poor kids so that they can keep their jobs and have a pension.
4. the elite don’t care.
5. Refugee camps don’t give out “the pill”
6. Mothers have been brainwashed not to have an abortion.
7. Our social/economic system need starving, fighting people.

And citizenship, throughout history, has often been seen as an ideal state, closely allied with freedom, an important status with legal aspects including rights, and it has sometimes been seen as a bundle of rights or a right to have rights. Last, citizenship almost always has had an element of exclusion, in the sense that citizenship derives meaning, in part, by excluding non-citizens from basic rights and privileges.
The varying use of these terms for different groups of foreigners can thus be seen as implying nuances about wealth, intended length of stay, perceived motives for moving, nationality, and even race. This has caused controversy. For example, a British national working in Spain or Portugal is commonly referred to as an ‘expatriate’, whereas a Spanish or Portuguese national working in Britain is referred to as an ‘immigrant’, thus indicating Anglocentrism.

Ideonella sakaiensis is a bacterium from the genus Ideonella and family Comamonadaceae capable of breaking down PET plastic which was isolated from outside a plastic bottle recycling facility.
The bacterium first uses PETase, an enzyme that works with water, to break down the PET plastic. It then breaks it down further using MHETase, another enzyme that further reacts with water to break down the plastics into terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol.
What will happen to my plastic lawn chair?
Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) is used extensively worldwide in plastic products, and its accumulation in the environment has become a global concern. Because the ability to enzymatically degrade PET has been thought to be limited to a few fungal species, biodegradation is not yet a viable remediation or recycling strategy. By screening natural microbial communities exposed to PET in the environment, we isolated a novel bacterium, Ideonella sakaiensis 201-F6, that is able to use PET as its major energy and carbon source. When grown on PET, this strain produces two enzymes capable of hydrolyzing PET and the reaction intermediate, mono(2-hydroxyethyl) terephthalic acid. Both enzymes are required to enzymatically convert PET efficiently into its two environmentally benign monomers, terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol.

If you think that only Russia has the capability and is the only one using cyber warefare then go ahead and read the following fake news
Joyce stressed the offensive could not be linked to Friday’s raid on Syria. It was not retaliation for the US, UK and French attack as the US and UK had been investigating the cyber-offensive for months. Nor, he said, should the decision to make public the cyber-attack be seen as a response to events in Syria.
The US and UK, in a joint statement, said the cyber-attack was aimed not just at the UK and US but globally. “Specifically, these cyber-exploits were directed at network infrastructure devices worldwide such as routers, switches, firewalls, network intrusion detection system,” it said.
The US has given the cyber activity alleged to be from Russia the name GRiZZLY STEP.
Both the US and UK, like Russia, have cyber-offensive capabilities. The head of GCHQ, Jeremy Fleming, in his first public speech last week, described how such a capability was used to degrade Islamic State’s ability to disseminate propaganda from its Syrian headquarters in Raqqa. It was the first time that UK has admitted to having used its cyber-offensive capability.
Is this fake news?

Time discreteness: Yesterday, today, tomorrow
Discreteness applies not only to material bodies but to space, time, motion, energy (heat) and all other properties of matter.
A point has position, location, in time and occupies 3 dimensions in space and has a duration in 3 dimension. It has volume.
Today, energy (heat) is referred to as EMF. It does not have volume. It occupies volume.

Re.: Islamic civilization (Thanks for that paper on time)
We, (the common people), (the non=elite); are just coming out of the dark ages.
The web is helping us acquire knowledge that use to be only available to the wealthy and the powerful.
That knowledge does not make us into elites.
Even though seeking knowledge in Islam is considered a religious obligation, the study of ‘Ilm al-Kalam is considered by Muslim scholars to fall beyond the category of necessity and is usually the preserve of qualified scholars, eliciting limited interest from the masses or common people
Shayrat Airbase (FAA LID: OS65) is home to the Syrian Air Force 50th Air Brigade located in Homs. It has two runways and around 40 hardened shelters.
According to the Trump administration, the base is also believed to contain a chemical weapons storage depot.
On 6 April 2017, on the orders from U.S. President Donald Trump, USS Ross and USS Porter (both based in the Mediterranean) fired 60 Tomahawk missiles at Shayrat airfield, with 59 reaching the base, according to the CBS Evening News, in response to a suspected chemical attack in the town of Khan Shaykhun in the Idlib Province.
RT says only 23 of the 59 Tomahawk missiles launched at Syria hit their targets. CBS says 58 of 59
Bloggers are irrelevant.
Lets look at Homs in Syria where the chemical were suppose to be stored for the alleged chemical attack at Dourma.
Homs has only been under control since May. 1, 2017.
Homs is also home to several large public heavy industries, such as the oil refinery west of the city which opened in 1959
A new sugar refinery is being built by a Brazilian company, and an automobile plant is under construction by Iran Khodro. Also a new phosphate plant and oil refinery are being built east of the city.
On 13 March 2017, the first batch of remaining rebels in the Waer neighbourhood agreed to leave Homs with their families and depart to Jarabulus. The evacuation of rebels along with their family members began on 18 March. On 27 March, 1,850 rebels and residents departed the neighbourhood in 45 buses. A final batch of 3,000 people, including 700 rebels, left Homs on 21 May. 1, 2017, 150 rebels chose to stay and surrendered their weapons. With this, the Syrian government regained full control of Homs.[
Israel Attacks Syrian Airbase in Homs
At least 12 dead in heavy strikes on base
Jason Ditz Posted on April 8, 2018
Locals reported over 20 missiles hit the site, and Syrian media initially expressed the belief that this was a US attack. The Pentagon denied involvement, however, and both US and Russian officials have since confirmed the attack was Israeli.
General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, said three facilities were struck: the first a scientific research center in the Damascus area; the second a chemical-weapons storage facility west of Homs, which he said the U.S. “assessed … was [the] primary location of Syrian sarin;” and third, another chemical-weapons equipment storage facility and command post. There was no coordination with Russia on the strikes, nor was Moscow informed, he said.
He said Syria had launched 40 surface-to-air missiles in an attempt to shoot the allied weapons down, but that most of them had been fired after the last Syrian target had already been destroyed.
The three bases targeted were the Barzah Research and Development Centre in greater Damascus, the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Facility, west of Homs, and the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Bunker Facility, just more than four miles from the storage facility.
Let’s do some math.
100 – 70 means that aprox. 30 missiles hit 3 targets and cause no damage to the stored chemical weapons.
So-o-o-o the USA claim to have had a success.
If you shoot some 100 piece of iron into the sky, its going to comedown somewhere and cause damage.
If you blow-up some 70 pieces of iron into the sky, with more iron, its all going to come down somewhere and cause damage.
If you fire a bullet into the sky its going to come back down and cause some damage.
Last night it rained so hard that it woke me up. Fortunately, the rain did not cause any damage.

What about you?
Do you think that it is coincidence?
Destroying the chemical weapons targets by blowing them up and spreading the chemicals into the environments.
Therefore, this will cause no damage to people or to the environment.

There are lots of behavior modification games by many players.
In game theory and economic theory, a zero-sum game is a mathematical representation of a situation in which each participant’s gain or loss of utility is exactly balanced by the losses or gains of the utility of the other participants. If the total gains of the participants are added up and the total losses are subtracted, they will sum to zero. Thus, cutting a cake, where taking a larger piece reduces the amount of cake available for others, is a zero-sum game if all participants value each unit of cake equally.
If I get a bigger piece of cake, but if I convince you that every piece of cake are of equal value then I would have won.
