silverngold. The tonic water bottle you saw at the base of the cedar saplings is

Posted by Equisetum @ 22:41 on February 19, 2015  

a reservoir attached to screw-on water spikes that deliver water (or liquid fertilizer) to the rooting zone instead of just surface watering. This is a fairly wet site which will not need watering once that sapling is established, but that cedar happened to be planted in the long drought last August and the watering system was added just to ensure survival in the first few weeks or months after transplanting. Stuff in the wheelbarrow is just for dumping on the corduroy stems, and then a top coating of wood chips will be added to the trail, which is in year-round use as a public footpath system on this municipal land. The tall grass behind is reed canary grass which gets there on its own.


IMO it’s time to get mad as hell over this subject!!

Urgent Action Alert in New York Regarding Mandatory Vaccines for Children

It’s time to stop the rogue government from harming children with inhumane laws. Protect the children. 

Dr. Mercola says the meningitis vaccine is unsafe for children.

GreenMedInfo says there are unavoidable dangers to the HPV vaccine.  ~ BP

Click here to make your voice heard!

The recent outbreak of measles has been all over the news recently, and anyone who believes in the freedom of informed choice on a question of vaccinations is proclaimed an hysterical “anti-vaxxer,” when the science clearly advises caution.

The New York legislature is considering a set of bills, A791, S 509 and A 1822, that would mandate the meningitis vaccine for 6thand 11th grade students and the HPV vaccine for 6th grade students, respectively.

Parents have a right to make their own decisions about treatments for their children based on informed consent. Limiting a patient’s ability to make informed decisions about what gets put into their body violates medical ethics.

Action Alert! Contact your state legislators and tell them to vote NO on these bills.

Instead, please support A943 and A0224. These bills provide for 1) exemption to mandatory vaccination on the grounds of a sincerely held philosophical objection to the immunization and 2) prohibit mandatory flu vaccination as a condition of employment.

Action Alert! We must not lose our freedom to make informed choices about vaccines. Contact your state legislators and tell them to vote NO on A 791, S 509, and A 1822. Please send your message TODAY.

Take Action & Sign!

Any Canadians follow this?

Equisetum @ 19:36 That’s corduroy all right. :^)

Posted by silverngold @ 22:01 on February 19, 2015  

That’s very good of you to volunteer as steward of that small future woodlot, and smart that you have planted several species of trees to increase the likelihood that at least some of the species will survive if attacked. Are you using that soil in the wheel barrow to cover your corduroy or are you using the corduroy to get the wheel barrow across for another project??  In any event that corduroy looks plenty tough to handle anything your wheel barrow will handle. That Western Red Cedar appears to be sitting in, or rooting in, a pickle jar of water. Is that site where you will plant it?? The protective mesh surrounding it makes me think you have a rabbit or deer problem but maybe it is just to keep the seedling from tipping over.

That bright red shovel looks hard to “handle” but you’ll never misplace it. LOL!!! I’m wondering if you have seeded what appears to be some of the rye grasses for erosion control or if it is strictly volunteer?

I understand the great feeling one gets from giving back to nature what man has taken away. Good for you my friend. There are other things that are as precious as ……………. Silverngold


silverngold @ 9:14. Coincidence that you should mention corduroy roads. Guess what I was doing this morning.

Posted by Equisetum @ 19:36 on February 19, 2015  

I laid down another barrow of corduroy stem segments to get through a wet patch in the conifer plantings of a 6-acre municipal forest where I am volunteer site steward. The sapling in the background, behind the spade, is a western redcedar. I have also planted Sitka spruce in these groundwater discharge areas, with the upland sites left for Douglas-fir, coastal variety of lodgepole pine, and grand fir (balsam). As you said, it’s good to plant a mix of species, with each chosen for the site it likes best, instead of plunking down the same kind of seedlings over the whole target planting area.

This picture will strike you as pretty wimpy corduroy foundation, compared to what you would lay down for your four-wheeler or logging truck, but the principle is the same – find a cheap way to float over the seepage areas and perennial wet patches.

I notice that Maya also uses the same principle of laying down the railway ties perpendicular to the direction of travel ! Corduroy Have a good day. Equiz.

Greece defiant as Germany tears up last-ditch EMU compromise on austerity

Greece has vowed to reject any demands for further austerity at a last-ditch meeting with eurozone creditors on Friday, even though the country risks running out of money by next week without a deal.

Yanis Varoufakis, the Greek finance minister, said there can be no agreement if the EMU creditor powers continue to insist that Greece sticks to the terms of its EU-IMF Troika bail-out and increase its primary budget surplus from 1.5pc to 4.5pc of GDP by next year.

“We have bent over backwards to reach an accord. We are perfectly prepared to refrain from any moves that would jeopardize financial stability or Greek competitiveness. But what we cannot accept is that the fiscal adjustment, agreed by the last government, be carried through just because the rules say so,” he told The Telegraph.

The defiant stand by the Leftist Syriza government raises the risk of an irreversible showdown when finance ministers from the Eurogroup converge on Brussels on Friday for yet another emergency meeting.

A Biden Bedtime Story: Who Funded and Armed ISIS

The Conservative Party of Canada has signed the longest weapons contract in Canada’s history with the Saudi regime described as a serial human rights violator. The conservatives’ performance in the efforts to internationalize democracy and defend human rights globally worth a failing mark. They went as far as befriending tyrants – such as the king of Bahrain – and closing their eyes on war criminals – such as the Sudanese president – making the diplomacy and the security of Canada at stake and in the service of multinational corporations. The cooperation between the Conservative Party of Canada and the supporters of international terrorism may be hard to believe. Yet, when the US vice president Joe Biden makes incriminating statements regarding the friends of the Conservative Party of Canada, it becomes obvious for the hard working Canadians that their country is going in the wrong direction under the conservatives.

In a recorded video, the US Vise President Joe Biden revealed several shocking facts.[1]  Here are some of those facts along with legitimate comments.

    Joe Biden said that Turkey (Under the rule of Erdogan’s Muslim Brotherhood party), the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia were so determined to take down the Syrian president Bashar Al Assad to wage a proxy Sunni Muslim vs Shia Muslim war.  This is not a journalistic leak of information. These are remarks delivered by the Vice President of the United States of America on foreign policy, in an event organized by the institute of politics in the prestigious Harvard University. So knowing that the cause of war in Syria was to please the oil rich allies and some states neighboring Syria, we find the conservatives implicated in lying to Canadians about the true motives of war in Syria. They are also responsible for participating in the destabilization of Syria that led to the rise of ISIS.
    He added that Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have poured tens of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad. Except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra (Listed as an international terrorist group), Al Qaeda and the extremist Jihadi elements coming from other parts of the world. Biden faces those who think he was exaggerating with this question:” where did all of this go?” This remarks establishes a direct link between Saudi Arabia –being the best friend of the Conservative Party of Canada in the region- and radical Islamist fractions fighting to topple Al Assad’s regime especially ISIS. Mr. Biden did not say the word ISIS, but he did identify ISIS by description when he said: ”extremist Jihadi elements coming from other parts of the world”. ISIS is nothing but that description.
    Mr. Biden said that now Saudi Arabia stopped the funding, Qatar has stopped the support of the most extreme elements of the terrorist organization, and the Turkish prime minister realized that they let too many people (or terrorists to be precise) into Syria. What this means is that the conservatives have been not only working hand in hand with countries that supported ISIS, but also rewarded them. The Saudis got away with the longest weapon’s deals, the Qataris and Emiratis  -who tried hard to take International Civil Aviation Organization’s headquarter from Montreal to Doha – were rewarded with direct flights to Canada. This is despite the war they waged against the Canadian telecommunication and wireless equipment company known as Blackberry that made many Canadians lose their jobs.

These three points are essential to finds answers to many important questions. The Globe and Mail reported that The Canadian government is refusing to say whether it obtained assurances that light armored vehicles, sold to Saudi Arabia in a massive $15-billion deal, would not be used against the Saudi people.[2] If you are asking why, the answer is that this arms deal with Saudi Arabia needs to be shrouded in secrecy because asking for guarantees that Canadian arms are not used against the civilians in Saudi Arabia requires some form of equipment tracing. If the arms are traceable, the conservatives fear to find them in hands of ISIS. There are about 33 ISIS weapons known to have come from several countries, yet, it is confirmed that the origin of a number of military equipment used by ISIS including armored vehicles remain largely unknown.[3]

The ruling Conservative Party of Canada under the “strong” leadership of Stephen Harper did not only help ISIS through Saudi Arabia, but also by providing the Syrian rebels with the technology and the equipment that were subsequently used to document some of the most barbaric acts against the human being ever committed. According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, Canada has given $5.3-million to the Syrian opposition to support the rebels in anti-government propaganda since April 2012. The said goal was to establish a pirate radio network and training for journalists and bloggers. The conservatives offered pre-paid airtime for satellite Internet communication devices with the -said – goal of increasing co-ordination between opposition networks of local civilian actors.[4] The Syrian opposition groups engaged in a war between themselves that ended with the victory of Islamist terrorist organizations, mainly Al Nusra and ISIS. As the conservatives cannot trace back their communications equipment, it is fair to say that Canadian equipment ended in the hands of ISIS. It is so sad to see the beheading of Christians, Shia Muslims, Yazidis and the burning of the human being alive being broadcasted using Canadian technology. ISIS is known of broadcasting quality horror videos, and only the conservatives of Canada are known to have provided the equipment.

The conservatives have lied to Canadians about everything related to the Syrian conflict. They engaged in supporting regimes that Mr. Biden said have just recently stopped financing international terrorism. Canada under the rule of the conservatives is becoming less and less recognizable.

Machines, a la algorithms ignore everything and take things where they want them to go. I would hate to see how high stocks and how low the metals would go, if the news got worse. Completely mind boggling.

It’s going come down to this eventually.
