One Man’s Clever Idea to Fight Frackers and Save His Organic FarmCleghorn describes himself and his late wife, Dr. Lucinda Hart Gonzalez, as environmentally conscious, although they didn’t leave the city to take up farming with the intention of making a huge statement. His wife wanted to be a cheese maker and Cleghorn wanted to farm again after a short experience he had as a young adult. Together they thought that, while they might not be able to change the world, on their 50 acres they could make a positive contribution, farming as true stewards of the land, be part of a vibrant local food system and community, and reduce their carbon footprint. They set out to transition the farm to a local, organic, sustainable farm and hoped it would be a place to inspire and train future generations of farmers.

& HERE is a REAL police officer – HELPING the PEOPLE, OF the PEOPLE: Cop buys groceries for mother who shoplifted food“I made the decision to buy her some groceries, because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry,” Thomas said.  Thomas cited Robles for just a misdemeanor and also asked her to help someone else.  Robles didn’t have a car, so Thomas loaded the $100 worth of groceries into the police car and the gave her a ride home.  Once Robles’ story went public, a man who heard about it hired her on the spot for a customer service position. [People are Beautiful, never let the reptiles in charge make you think any different.  Help each other – we are brothers & sisters for all eternity.]
The Ron Finley Project: Ron Finley is a man who will not sit still and watch a problem take root. Having grown up in the South Los Angeles food desert, Ron is familiar with the area’s lack of fresh produce. He knew what it’s like to drive 45 minutes just to get a fresh tomato.  In 2010, he set out to fix the problem. Outside his front door, that is. Ron planted vegetables in the curbside dirt strip next to his home. And quietly, carefully, tenderly started a revolution.

To put it in simper terms, citizens are planting cannabis plants randomly throughout the town to really show officials what the people want.

This is What Wi-Fi Looks Like: Wireless internet. This wonderful hidden energy all around all of us that connects us to people and then websites around the world. But what if you could basically see wireless internet? Exactly what would it be like? That is precisely the question artist Nickolay Lamm has wanted to answer. With the help of Astrobiologist M. Browning Vogel, he launched a number of images representing just what wi-fi would look like if it turns out to be visible to the human eye.
