This 3 Part  Oct. 20, 2015 report by John Upton, in ClimateCentral.org explains the current practice of subsidizing wood burning, as if it is carbon neutral, to replace coal burning for energy production.
http://reports.climatecentral.org/pulp-fiction/1/

Included in Part 1 are these three interactive 360 degree panoramas of the Drax Power Station - Western Europe's largest coal-power plant that is transitioning to wood-power and is big and powerful as many nuclear stations.

Part 2 of this report is titled "The American Trees That Are Electrifying Europe"
http://reports.climatecentral.org/pulp-fiction/2/

Part 2 also includes two interactive panoramas of the Enviva Pellet Mill near Franklin, Va.

Neighbors north west of the airport have created this  Boise area Google Map to identify places where goat head (puncture vine) patches, and other noxious weeds, are being found. We have already had one workshop to help people learn how to create and use maps like these. A plan is being discussed to engage Ada County and the City of Boise and knowledgable citizens to devise ways to help individuals, families and neighborhood groups to try to control these pernicious noxious and painful plants.
Locations where goat head (puncture vine) patches and other noxious weeds can be found in Boise Neighborhood areas. We will try to organize a plan to help individuals, families and neighborhood groups learn how to control and eradicate the puncture vine plant when they find it.

Boise Weekly published an new article about the Draft Boise River Enhancement Plan being developed by the Boise River Enhancement Network.
The Boise River Enhancement Network (BREN) is online and provides a public record of events, discussions, and group activities starting in 2011, including a google map describing past enhancement projects in the watershed and a monthly newsletter. People interested in the Boise River Enhancement Plan and other watershed issues are invited to join and participate in ongoing On Line / All the Time discussions at the BREN site link below:

The Boise River is beautiful, but it's far from healthy.

February 15, 2003 - Largest Anti-War protest in history.   I shot SD video in Boise and the big crowd thought our actions would make a difference.  Did you participate? 

http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/05/20/we-are-many-documentary-depicts-legacy-global-anti-war-movement  
The extraordinary February 15, 2003 march against the U.S. invasion of Iraq, which brought an estimated 30 million people to the streets in 800 cities on every continent, is immortalized on screen in Amir Amirani's acclaimed documentary, We Are Many, premiering in the UK this week.

Do you agree with Bernie Sanders view of Democratic Socialism?
In the nearby Nextdoor neighborhood network where I live there are now over 1600 members. When anything political gets posted some people want to stop the conversation. I just posted a "POLL" that attempts to get open minded people to read Bernie Sanders remarks, and answer simple poll questions without getting into flaming personal remarks to people's answers. Below is the notice I posted on Nextdoor for our nearby neighborhoods in Boise.

Do you agree with Bernie Sanders view of Democratic Socialism?
A summary of Bernie Sander's speech yesterday, November 19, 2015, provides the 12 Best Reasons for being a Democratic Socialist. This summary was provided by Steven Rosenfield/Alternet.
http://www.alternet.org/…/bernie-sanders-12-best-reasons-be…

I am posting this as a poll with simple "yes" " no" or "undecided" answers hoping open minded neighbors will read the two articles linked here and eventually make their own choices for the next presidential election but not get into a flaming political discussion here on the Nextdoor neighborhood network.
Below is a link directly to Bernie Sanders remarks on Democratic Socialism in the United States.

NO
UNDECIDED
In his inaugural remarks in January 1937, in the midst of the Great Depression, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt looked out at the nation and this is what he saw. He saw tens of millions of its citizens denied the basic necessities of life. He saw millions of families trying to live on incomes so meager that the pall of family disaster hung over them day by day. He saw millions denied education, recreation, and the opportunity to better their ...

The film "This Changes Everything" will be shown at the Flicks Theater in Boise, ID. on Oct. 20, 2015. This article contains thoughts by Avi Lewis about our current time and possible future if people have hope rather than a despair we can't afford. Film is based on Naomi Klein's book of the same title.
[Editor's note: Several weeks ago, ahead of the U.S. premiere of his new film, This Changes Everything, journalist and filmmaker Avi Lewis spoke with Common Dreams via phone to discuss the documentary inspired by the book of the same name, written by his wife Naomi Klein. Some of that discussion was presented in an article published on October 1.

Today people who live in the Boise River Watershed are invited to attend a community workshop to discuss the development of a new and comprehensive Boise River Enhancement plan. The draft plan is online now and is really impressive with lots of photos, maps and infographics. 

Ongoing opportunities for reviewing the draft plan and for public input and discussion will remain available online for the next few months as this plan is further refined, and on into the future via people who join the Boise River Enhancement Network (BREN).

   More details are available at the following URL.
