TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

The top 10 health freedom stories of 2011

In Kiptusuri, Kenya, a family can now buy a small Chinese made solar power system for $80, and this one small panel provides enough energy to charge a cell phone and run four bright lights.
These tiny systems are playing an epic and transformative role in villages that have never had a power grid, delivering useful electricity at a price even the poor can afford.

Indoor urban farm in New York helps feed hundreds of families
Mireille Massac, the pantry's operator, actually grows a variety of lettuces, bok choy, collard greens, and other fresh fare hydroponically in a windowless basement, providing food from the inside-out, rather from the outside-in. Massac has created an urban oasis that not only produces fresh food, but also educates the local community about how to grow it. It is a literal manifestation of the famous quote, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
"People feel very passionate about this farm; they're eating better," said Massac to New York Daily News about the transformation that is taking place in her local community as a result of the farm. "They come with a different attitude; it's all about healthy eating."
Every Thursday morning before the pantry opens, locals flock there to pick the fruits of their labor. They also regularly engage in workshops and training sessions about how to grow food hydroponically, which empowers them to take an active role in the process, and even implement their own home-based farms if they so choose.

independent internet


Free The Network
A documentary about the Occupy Wall Street, hacktivism, and the hackers trying to build a distributed network for the Occupy movement and beyond. You’re on the Internet. What does that mean? Most likely, it means one of a handful of telecommunications providers is middlemanning your information from Point A to Point B. Fire off an email or a tweet, broadcast a livestream or upload video to YouTube, and you’re relying on vast networks of fiber optic cables deep underground and undersea, working with satellites high above, to move your data around the world, and to bring the world to your fingertips. It’s an infrastructure largely out of sight and mind. AT&T, Level 3, Hurricane Electric, Tata Indicom – to most these are simply invisible magicians performing the act of getting one online and kicking. To many open-source advocates, however, these are a few of the big, dirty names responsible for what they see as the Web’s rapid consolidation. The prospect of an irreparably centralized Internet, a physical Internet in the hands of a shrinking core of so-called Tier 1 transit networks, keeps Isaac Wilder up at night. Wilder is the 21-year-old co-founder of the Free Network Foundation. Motherboard first caught up with Wilder at Zuccotti Park during the fledgling days of Occupy Wall Street.

(apparent...) good news on Liberty


Parti Quebecois: the start of a new era?
Canada's newly elected party; Parti Quebecois has already changed up the political landscape in Quebec. The group canceled the highly controversial tuition hikes in the province among other key issues, but can the Pauline Marois victory continue to make a positive change in Canada? Jacob Remes, assistant professor for SUNY Empire State College, gives us his take.

Backyard flower farmer's persistence leads to passage of 'Food and Flowers Freedom Act'
Tara Kolla's lawyer neighbor, who had reportedly had a previous run-in with her, filed a complaint with the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety about the fact that she had been growing flowers in her yard and selling them at farmers markets and other locations. Local zoning ordinances at the time only permitted backyard growers to plant vegetables for outside sale, not flowers or fruit, which meant Kolla was technically in violation of the provisions.
Over the next several years, Kolla's friends and allies in the local community helped her form an alliance known as Urban Farming Advocates, which was able to get help from City Council member Eric Garcetti in crafting legislation that would expand the scope of backyard farming to include all sorts of things besides just vegetables.
"I authored the Food and Flowers Freedom Act to promote local growing by simply filling in a gap in our city laws, which addressed the growing of vegetables but not other items commonly sold at our local farmers markets," said Garcetti. These other items include berries, flowers, fruits, grains, herbs, mushrooms, nuts, ornamental plants, and seedlings.

food sovereignty


Sedgwick, Maine is first town to declare total food sovereignty, opposing state and federal laws
This isn't just a declaration of preference. The proposed warrant added, "It shall be unlawful for any law or regulation adopted by the state or federal government to interfere with the rights recognized by this Ordinance." In other words, no state licensing requirements prohibiting certain farms from selling dairy products or producing their own chickens for sale to other citizens in the town.
What about potential legal liability and state or federal inspections? It's all up to the seller and buyer to negotiate. "Patrons purchasing food for home consumption may enter into private agreements with those producers or processors of local foods to waive any liability for the consumption of that food. Producers or processors of local foods shall be exempt from licensure and inspection requirements for that food as long as those agreements are in effect." Imagine that-buyer and seller can agree to cut out the lawyers. That's almost un-American, isn't it?


Seattle to Build Nation’s First Food Forest
Image
A seven-acre plot of land in the city’s Beacon Hill neighborhood will be planted with hundreds of different kinds of edibles: walnut and chestnut trees; blueberry and raspberry bushes; fruit trees, including apples and pears; exotics like pineapple, yuzu citrus, guava, persimmons, honeyberries, and lingonberries; herbs; and more. All will be available for public plucking to anyone who wanders into the city’s first food forest.

Nature fights back - bugs devour GM Monsanto corn with a vengeance
Corn genetically engineered by Monsanto to kill western corn rootworm is reportedly being devoured by those pests with a vengeance.
Scientists reported that samples taken in 2010 indicated that rootworm populations had an eleven-fold survival rate on Cry3Bb1 maize than did control populations. Mike Gray, a professor of entomology with the University of Illinois reported: "We're still early in the growing season, and the adults are about a month ahead of schedule," explained Gray. "I was surprised to see them - and there were a lot."

Peru Passes Monumental 10-Year Ban on Genetically Modified Foods
In an act of defiance against bloated biotech companies like Monsanto, Peru has officially passed a law banning genetically modified ingredients within the nation for a period of 10 years. Peru’s Plenary Session of the Congress made the decision despite previous governmental pushes for GM legalization. Anibal Huerta, President of Peru’s Agrarian Commission, said the ban was needed to prevent the ”danger that can arise from the use of biotechnology".

300,000 Organic Farmers Sue Monsanto in Federal Court: Decision on March 31st to Go to Trial
Hundreds of citizens, (even including NYC chefs in their white chef hats) joined Occupy the Food System groups, ie Food Democracy Now, gathered outside the Federal Courts in Manhattan on January 31st, to support organic family farmers in their landmark lawsuit against Big Agribusiness giant Monsanto. (Organic Seed Growers & Trade Association v. Monsanto) Oral arguments were heard that day concerning the lawsuit by 83 plaintiffs representing over 300,000 organic farmers, organic seed growers, and organic seed businesses.
The lawsuit addresses the bizarre and shocking issue of Monsanto harassing and threatening organic farmers with lawsuits of “patent infringement” if any organic farmer ends up with any trace amount of GM seeds on their organic farmland.
