The Fall season means time to feel the delicious chill and even more delicious s'mores again...................
There are few things more inviting than the warmth, crackling and glow of a fire outdoors. As the evenings grow cooler, fire pits can extend the time you can enjoy your backyard. Create a welcoming gathering place with a handful of chairs drawn around the fire and plenty of hot cider and nibbles, and your guests may be tempted to linger well after sundown. If you’re thinking about adding a fire feature to your landscape, go for a smoke-free desig...

Yeah I hear you. Things just become stuff you can't even enjoy anyway under those conditions. It's hard to start over from scratch and it takes years to fully get up on your feet again but it is worth the sacrifice and risk and with strong determination as you know it is possible +Stephen Beres .

These :tiny bears" whose name 'tardigrade' means slow walker amble along despite temperature extremes that are mind-boggling and radiation levels that would turn human cells into scrambled eggs. Forget cockroaches. These bears will outlive the human species or assist the human species to go on long journeys into the frontiers of space where no man has gone before......
The mighty water bear Tardigrades, aka water bears, are tiny animals that can be found just about everywhere on earth, with a slight preference for the moisture in moss. They happily amble along on…

Another interesting new use for drones to determine land use is beginning. Scientists were interested to know how the Amazon has been impacted by aboriginal tribes in the Amazon. Utilizing specifically engineered laser scanners that take 3D pictures of the vegetation below, they then use algorithms to strip the vegetation to reveal the land below..................

Cartels in Mexico are old news that most people identify with the usual organized crime syndicates the world over specializing in drug and human trafficking. They also deal heavily in kidnappings and extortion but few realize they also take over legitimate businesses and extort all profits to their organizations and rob workers of their pay and livelihoods. This article is a fascinating read and peek into their overweaning greed and thirst for violence and how a small indigenous tribe finally fought back against their corrupt local governments and retook their livelihoods back...............

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/09/24/how-mexico-s-forest-people-took-on-a-cartel-and-a-u-s-multinational.html
Mexico’s drug lords aren’t satisfied with gang wars and narcotics trafficking. Their corruption runs deep in rural life. But some folks fight back.

Diggy gathered over 110000 signatures and will now be able to stay home and out of the police impound thanks to all those who signed the petition declaring he is NOT a pit bull but is an American bulldog. If your town has similar laws that base impoundment on "looks" rather than facts start your own petition at Care2.

When police in Waterford,MI, threatened to seize Diggy the bulldog, Tara Vitale started a Care2 petition that successfully changed the town's dog ordinance.

It's that time of year. About 50 miles north of me on the coast of eastern Florida at Matanzas Inlet, a kayaker had a shark chase him all the way back to shore, biting his paddle and once even biting the back of his kayak. He had a GoPro on the bow of his kayak so you can see his encounters and how fast he was trying to paddle to shore, but the shark kept biting the paddles. We had 4 separate shark bite attacks on the Volusia County beaches this past weekend and those were biting surfers. The moral of all these stories is that when the mullet are running as they have the past week, stay the flip out of the water!!!

Drew Trousdell quickly realized that catching a wave to the beach was his top priority.

A volcano hidden off the coast of Italy is so huge that it has the power to change life on Earth – should scientists drill into it to unlock its secrets, or is the risk too great?
