It seems many of the commentators missed the point of someone making a profit from a resource will do more than a gvmt to protect that resource; a private person/business is invested with their own money, capital, labor - a gvmt has no incentive, other than publicly-perceived image, and even that is paid for not with the bureaucrat-politician's own money, but with money taken from the tax-payer in the first place !
Have a look at the African Rhino-story - changes in herd-populations since gvmt gave up their ineffective and devastating attempts at protecting them from becoming extinguished and privatized the herds !

Make this one mandatory viewing
for politicians and bureaucrats before they are allowed to move into
their offices from which they dream up and decide on their ever-meddling
regulations

From a recent PhotoSession with the Theme of Low-Key lighting - some considerations on low-key lighting - looking around on the net it seems it is easy to overlook the difference between 'Low-Key lighting' and plain 'under-exposure' - generally, even a low-key image will still have a contrast range from black to white, and not be of a simply all over darkish grey - although the background may very well be intentionally underexposed for low-key images, make sure to still have proper exposure on the actual subject, likely even just a small area of 'correct' exposure Various definitions of 'low-key' can be found... one light source only, ( often true and easy to do for low-key images); high contrast range between main light and fill light (usually this is the case indeed, and one strives for much shadows, few highlights and few mid-tones); predominantly dark tones in the image; simply overall low intensity of light; only small area/s of brightness in a overall dark image;... and they all do describe one or various main aspects of low-key lighting: using less light and more shadow to reveal shapes and contours, to emphasize and draw the eye to selective small areas of interest, creating an effect similar to the chiaroscuro in painting the play of light and shadow areas, creating a more moody and mysterious visual feel of drama and tension - rather than lighting the subject from the front, try placing the light and camera positions to see only the edges and only small areas being illuminated - the below images are, I would say, not 100% low-key, but close enough to assume you get the idea... Herr Amer's upper body portrait though, does show the effect-

...  ok... have no idea why part of this post shows with strike-through formatting..???

It is incomprehensible to me how the human mind can be either so utterly-delusionally-obliviously ignorant to think the way those authoritarians do, or so utterly-intentionally-viciously-destructive of others' minds and lives the way they are - it is high time to spread, teach, and encourage reason back into the world - thank you, Walter Block, for being one who's unceasing efforts to that latter aim help in saving our humanity and humane-ness ! and thank you, Tom Woods, just as much for your fabulous work of teaching and sharing - I always love your style and ability to put complex topics into easily grasped and fun to listen to delivery -

I just tuned in to the last 10 minutes... but here is a recent article, timely to your show today, on whether to effort towards gradual change or towards the final goal -  re-published on mises.ca, by Murray Rothbard :
What Libertarians Should Learn From the Abolitionists
Wednesday, June 4th, 2014 by Murray N. Rothbard posted in Philosophy, Politics.

(sorry, no idea why the text appears in strike-hrough here??)     Kris, Sara, - fabulous session - fun and informative to listen and watch -  allow me a note on Omega 3 ALA from plant source, please - although, yes, some people may have less efficient conversion rates than others ( for DHA it is noted that men can, on average, convert around 5% of ALA to DHA;  women can convert a bit more, because of need for pregnancy/nursing for the infant, 2 - 9 %), even at low conversion rates, a few tablespoons of flax oil, for example, will provide plenty of source Omega 3 fatty acid to provide for plenty EPA and DHA -   two tablespoons of flax oil can, even at low 2% conversion, still provide 200+mg of DHA -                           The important point to recognize is, that Omega 3 ( and Omega 6 healthily pressed!! and unrefined!!) need to be taken in 'macro'-dosage, not small supplemental dosages ( such as one would take a  fish-oil dosage of 2 - 5   1000mg capsules), but take flax oil, chia seed oil, sacha inchi... by the table spoon ( I take easily 3 - 6 table spoons of flax oil, Udo's oil, Omega 3-6 blends in a day... and still use additionally some coconut oil, have fats from an organic kefir or yoghurt, nuts and seeds... ) - these are food oils, not supplements !  Most importantly, when buying such oils, the pressing method is of utmost priority to be considered - a  commercial flax oil press can create (seeds are small and somewhat hard and a grinding-pressing method will create temperatures up to 150Celsius just by the nature of the pressing... and still can be labeled 'cold-pressed' (no intentional external heat added) !!     So we need to choose our Flax-oil and Omega3-6/9 Oils wisely, knowing how the company presses them...   any fats and oils, for that matter !!  ( yes, I am biased towards the company Flora (Udo's Oil), here in Canada, and do education for them; but as a independent natural health practitioner, I choose to do education for them, rather than others, because of their no-heat, no air, no-light oil pressing methods ) - in any case, that's not the point - the point is that many people simply do not eat enough healthy fats to allow their bodies the conversion amounts needed and to supply all the tissues with fatty acids needed for healthy functioning; and it is difficult to supply simply the volume/amount needed with fish oils alone  (too much trans fatty acids, too much animal protein, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, imbalanced ration between Omega3 - 6, nutrient deficiencies... all can inhibit our natural conversion rates); one needs to use nutritional-food oils for the main part of daily fatty intake   -           well, thanks much for your video and reading to the end of this rant  :)      - I look forward to exploring your  hormone-blog, Sara, and listening to more of your videos, Kris  -  good wishes

Interesting info and demonstration - just, please, think further and practice mindfulness about not leaving the glass splinters on the ground... it is well to not want to have glass 'over at the shelter...and because of the kids...', but what about any animals roaming the area, and, in a real survival situation, I for sure wouldn't take any risk in myself running over them sometime in the future -

Thank you for your comments. I did walk through the woods and find a spot away from the shelter. I also kicked a bunch of loose dirt over the area under where I was knapping when I was done.
I always do my best to leave the woods in the same or better condition when I leave, John.
