The Pros of Worm Composting

The old "Eeeeeeew!" may well become one of the solutions to environmental problems and lack of nutrition in the soil. Scientists have tested this in the laboratory and have now approved of this new technique to composting: worm composting. Particularly, the red worm variety are the ones capable of doing this new feat.


Finally, they found a new way to make use of worms aside from being the main dish in Fear Factor. Some of us may have goosebumps with the sight of creepy crawlies—it’s often more than enough to give any average person the heebie jeebies. But on the up side, they have been known to help cultivate the environment for a long time. It is really no surprise to find that they play a vital role in the whole composting process. 


Some of you might think that worm composting is not really such as good idea. But before you banish the idea of those red crawlies helping save the environment, take a break, open your mind and hear out some of the advantages of the now-becoming-popular worm composting technique.


Advantage Number 1: Flexible: Indoors or Outdoors, Take Your Pick


Whether you want to have your worm compost indoors or outdoors, it does not really matter. You can have them on either or on both areas. The good thing is that you won't even have to sweat around too much with your worm compost. They are relatively easy to transport and are non-complaining workers that will till your compost day in and day out, for relatively no charge. You only have to feed them to keep them in top condition. 


Advantage Number 2: All it needs is moist bedding


Worms like moisture, and having moisture is one of the easiest components of composting. If you are able to provide the moisture, you only have to wait and see until the worms do their wonders in helping you have more fertilized soil.


Advantage Number 3: Worms are readily available and are not that hard to cultivate.


In some areas, you need not look for worms. You only have to get a jar and focus your eyes while walking in the garden. Sometimes, you need not go out of the house and you can find them sauntering in your bathroom (rich in moisture, remember?). So the good thing is that they will not really resist you if you put them in a cage rich with food.


Advantage Number 4: Aside from the yuck factor, the worms will happily do the work; you only have to regulate them.


You will act more as a worm manager than a laborer, really. After you put on the heap and the worms together, you will do very minimal work for so much positive results. You can also get a lot of support from governments and people worldwide regarding this aspect. In fact, in some American communities, it is already being implemented and widely promoted to have worm composting in the home.


Advantage Number 5: Mobile bins will not affect the worms' performance.


Another thing with the worm composting that other composting techniques don't have is the mobility. You can take it with you anywhere, assuming that you have small scale composting on your sleeve (industrial size worm composting isn't really a lovely idea, anyway).


Quick Tips:

·        Do not add meat or oily food scraps – vegetable and plant material only

·        The more frequently you turn your compost pile, the quicker turnaround time

·        Keep piles moist but not soggy

·        Add a few shovels of dirt to the pile from time to time


Dust your knickknacks by spraying a little furniture polish on a soft paintbrush & lightly dust the items!

Revolutionary Fish Hatchery Reduces Toxins

•Ontario man pioneers new way of raising healthier fish while conserving water, lessening pollution in waterways

By Mark Anderson

An Ontario resident has created a revolutionary fish hatchery technology that can, among other things, produce healthy fish for people to eat while conserving water and reducing pollution that is typically dumped into waterways in more traditional methods. Despite using one-tenth of the groundwater as is used by government hatcheries, John Devine’s system has long been ignored and suppressed by those in big corporate media and government, much to the detriment of human health, the food supply and the economy.

At a time when droughts have been particularly severe, typical “open” (water in, water out), traditional fish hatcheries extract a whopping 2K gallons of water per minute from aquifers.

“Hatcheries need clean water; you cannot use surface water,” said Devine. This is largely due to the fact that surface water is contaminated with man-made or naturally occurring pollutants.

But the closed-loop system used by Devine, along with his son, Mark, draws water from the aquifer at a much slower rate, since 90% of what is taken in is carefully cleaned and recycled back to the fish, so they can continue to thrive.


A growing number of employers are willing to use home-based employees, assuming those employees have access to a phone, computer and high-speed Internet connection. That's good news for people with disabilities or who are caring for children or an elderly relative or who live in an area where jobs are scarce. It's also good news for people who could find work outside the home but prefer to spend more time with their families and less time sitting in traffic.

Big Brother Goes to School; Wants All Students ‘Chipped’

Just outside of San Antonio, Texas, an honor student has stepped out of formation to protest the “Student Locator Project” just launched by the huge Northside Independent School District (NISD). The program would compel 4,200 pupils in John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School to wear radio frequency identification (RFID) microchips embedded in the student IDs worn around their necks.


Operation Stellar Wind Domestic Spy Program…Traitors in Action Alert!

NSAs Utah  Data Center’s purpose:

Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”

William Binney is among a group of N.S.A. whistle-blowers, including Thomas A. Drake, who have each risked everything — their freedom, livelihoods and personal relationships — to warn Americans about the dangers of N.S.A. domestic spying; A top-secret program he says is broadly collecting Americans' personal data.

 Can We Protect the Country from Politicians?

Today, the federal government has acquired an all but unquestioned dominance over virtually every area of American life. It acts without constitutional limits and increasingly regulates our most basic activities, from how much water is in our toilets to what kind of light bulbs we can buy.

Decades worth of bad decisions by members of all three branches of government have brought our country to the brink of disaster.

So while we face many challenges, the most difficult task ahead—and the most important—is to restore constitutional limits on government

According to the Fund for Peace’s and Foreign Policy magazine’s 2012 Failed States Index, not even the United States is safe from collapse. This is a truism for anybody who understands just what an overstretched military, politicized monetary policy and societal moral and ethical decay means for a nation.

During the Clinton administration, scholars in major journals such as Foreign Affairs noted that in much of the world, the US is considered the leading failed state and the greatest terrorist threat to man. But the US citizenry would never believe this, considering the Fourth Branch of the Government – the media - does not report on international opinion in its entertainment news.

Although the attention is on the fiscal deficit in the mainstream, what is sometimes termed the “democratic deficit” is as good an indicator of the peril of a nation as any: the overwhelming gap between public policy and public opinion. And this is a conservative view. Much of the population knows that the government is not on their side, though most are merely too comfortable and scared to do anything about it. And who can blame them? Their very freedom and survival could depend on NOT making too much of a fuss about their ‘own’ government.

The US is starting to endure its own fair share of misery. Since 2008, a bankrupt and rogue world financial system has hijacked the state instruments and forced the population and future generations to subsidize their own enslavement (via inflation and debt). The public number is about $16 trillion, but the worldwide derivatives market exceeds $1.2 quadrillion, dwarfing the planet’s GDP. The bailout culture in the US and the west implies that the worldwide taxpayer, with the US taxpayer at the forefront if history is any gauge, is expected to back additional bailouts to corrupt bankers and governments. The same pillaging has happened to Europe as the traditional “core” of civilization – US, UK, and Europe – join each other to impoverish their citizens.

According Alan Krueger, the chairman of Obama's Council of Economic Advisers, "the shift in income inequality over the last three decades is the equivalent of moving $1.1 trillion of income from the 99% to the top 1% every single year."

According to the Economic Policy Institute, "CEO pay at American firms has risen 725%, more than 127 times faster than worker pay over the same time period."

As Congress bankrupts the nation and violates civil rights, we should start thinking about charges of treason. (More on this to come in our ongoing series).
