  1. Re: Texas city declares disaster after brain-eating amoeba found in tap water

    I found that ecowatch article elsewhere and had a good laugh over it. Texas is well known in educational circles for the poor quality of it schools, and for the wretched textbooks that it holds a...
  2. Re: Silk Offers Home-Made Solution For Covid-19 Prevention

    I hand-wash my silk shirts with Woolite and hang them to dry, then iron them. Yup, more work, but we've been spoiled by modern laundering techniques. I have six or eight silk shirts in various shades...
  3. Re: Black Soldier Fly Farm Planned For Broome

    I consider that really good news!
  4. Re: Black Soldier Fly Maggots Feed On Food waste

    Astonishing that I never heard of this until now.
  5. Re: Scientific Review Of Keto Diets Falls Short For Accuracy

    Once again, regardless of discrepancies, there simply is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to diet. I tried keto vigorously for over a month, as I think I said elsewhere. I even bought the test...
  6. Re: Silk Offers Home-Made Solution For Covid-19 Prevention

    Seems like a good idea. I don't have a parachute to cut up and I'm not about to snip the few silk shirts that I treasure… But I would happily wear a silk mask and I'll bet it's a lot more breathable...
  7. Re: Black Soldier Fly Maggots Feed On Food waste

    All of these proposals and methods to turn food waste into some sort of productive outcome, e.g. new people food… Well, I'm all in favor of them! Original and useful!
  8. Re: Fructose Made In The Brain Could Be Mechanism Driving Alzheimer's Disease

    I agree with your assessment, Mr. Wizard. Whenever the discussion of Alzheimer's comes up, it serves to remind us how little we still know about this condition.
  9. Re: NM Navajo Nation farmers fight back on alleged illegal hemp farms

    Yes, we are aware of the multitude of industrial uses, from clothing and utility bags to rope and even bridges. What I was hoping for was a table or a graphic of statistics or percentages for the...

    Re: Inside A Chinese Cockroach Farm

    "He thinks the farming process of giving food waste to cockroaches to feed animals for human consumptions could potentially work overseas." I think that's a splendid idea!
  11. Re: Body Hair Is Natural. Society Thinking Otherwise Is Dangerous

    Body hair is so much a part of being human that I can't imagine how we came to regard it as ugly, undesirable, or strictly a masculine trait. Back in the 60s I dated a veteran who had spent time...
  12. Re: NM Navajo Nation farmers fight back on alleged illegal hemp farms

    Grulla, your images prove nothing. I could send you the same photos from my own state. A better site would be one that identifies what percentage of acreage in the country is used to produce hemp for...
  13. Re: In the Race for COVID-19 Vaccine, Slow Starters Could Still Win Out

    We have already witnessed COVID-19 evolving into multiple strains, which makes me question how any single vaccine can possibly be any more effective than the annual fall flu vaccine that tries — and...
  14. Re: 'A savagely broken food system': Cory Booker wants radical reform ... now

    Maine is a big state and more particularly, a tall state! I'm fortunate to have two slaughterhouses within an hour's drive, but neither has a federal meet inspector on hand. To truck or trailer...
  15. Re: 11 Banned Foods Americans Should Stop Eating

    The trade name for Ractopamine is Paylean and it was first used in pork. When I learned about it, years ago, I wrote to corporate headquarters of the New England Hannaford supermarket chain to ask...

  18. Re: Thousands of ducks released to protect Thai rice fields from pests

    What wonderful memories, Maurya!
    I read a lot of history and a lot of historical fiction. 100 years ago and more, goose grease was a valuable commodity for treating things like chilblains. Sheep...
  19. Re: NM Navajo Nation farmers fight back on alleged illegal hemp farms

    I think that has become more common in Canada where the hemp crop has been legal for years. Here the emphasis is now on CBD, for which the demand has grown exponentially. That's where the real money...
  20. Re: 'A savagely broken food system': Cory Booker wants radical reform ... now

    Possibly because it got no publicity? Your post is the first I've heard of it, but you can be sure I'm going to spread the news. This is an issue that has affected me directly for years! I've had to...

  22. Re: Thousands of ducks released to protect Thai rice fields from pests

    While we're on the subject of odd poultry, for years we raised our own turkeys and geese, and once I did a suckling pig for Christmas — yes, the traditional one with a necklace of raisins and an...
  23. Re: Long, Frequent Naps Predict Alzheimer's Dementia

    I can never sleep during the day unless under extraordinary circumstances, e.g. a sleepless night or intense stress. As you may have noticed from my recent absence here, however, I've been busy from...
  24. Re: Thoughts on Colon Cancer & Chadwick Boseman

    I am familiar with her life story. Not only was she an opera lover like me, she was also extremely health-conscious. Beyond diet, she had a personal trainer come to her home three days a week and she...
  25. Re: NM Navajo Nation farmers fight back on alleged illegal hemp farms

    First, the choice of cattle manure versus horse manure would depend upon the nitrogen requirements of the crop, since those two differ significantly. But more importantly, would you want your...
