Building With Papercrete

The dome project is moving VERY slowly forward. We had "projectus interruptus" in the form of an unemployed son with twin babies. You know, if you have to put your dreams on hold, that is a pretty fine reason. We now live in the house next to our property, so are getting back after things at last. This fall, we began to cover the dome. We covered it in plywood this summer, leaving a southern window framed to allow maximum light in winter, minimum in summer.

Papercrete is amazing stuff. We put the plywood on with the intention of putting insulation in and roofing over it, then we learned about papercrete (just in time, as always!) Some of the people using it will make a frame of styrofoam. Take two sheets, frame them so there is a gap of a few inches between and fill with papercrete, then when dry, cover with more papercrete. Lightweight, excellent insulation and very, very inexpensive.

We have been mixing it in a bucket, very tedious. We wanted to do some testing before we committed further FRNs to this. We are delighted with our test. We are building one of these now:

NYPD arrests, ‘brutalizes’ peace activist McGovern ahead of Petraeus speech

The New York Police Department has detained prominent peace activist and former CIA agent Ray McGovern, with witnesses saying he was “yelling in pain” during arrest. McGovern was detained ahead of a David Petraeus speech that he planned to attend.

McGovern was detained before the start of a talk between former CIA director David Petraeus, retired US Army Lt. Col. John Nagl, and author Max Boot on American Foreign Policy at the 92nd St Y., an Upper East Side cultural community center.

Test to see if AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Bell Canada, or Vodacom is using a unique tracking beacon to identify your device

There’s been a big stinky splash about Verizon using a privacy-decimating “perma cookie” so advertisers can track Verizon customers across the web. It works by Verizon injecting a Unique Identifier Header (UIDH) at the end of HTTP connections. As Jonathan Mayer, a computer scientist and lawyer at Stanford, explained, “In short, Verizon is packaging and selling subscriber information, acting as a data broker on real-time advertising exchanges.”

Saudi Arabia's Secret Plan to Sabotage U.S. Oil Production

By Jason Simpkin
www.outsiderclub.com

...some observers believe that Saudi Arabia is pushing down oil prices to hurt Russia and other petro-states unfriendly to the U.S.

However, that seems unlikely...

...It takes a lot more money to produce oil from shale than it does traditional wells.
The cost of drilling shale and deepwater formations ranges from $85 to $115 for each barrel of oil produced, compared to $20 to $30 per barrel for traditional oil wells in Saudi Arabia.

The Tuscaloosa shale in Louisiana breaks even at about $92 per barrel, for example.

Assange: Google Is Not What It Seems

In June 2011, Julian Assange received an unusual visitor: the chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, arrived from America at Ellingham Hall, the country house in Norfolk, England where Assange was living under house arrest.

For several hours the besieged leader of the world’s most famous insurgent publishing organization and the billionaire head of the world’s largest information empire locked horns. The two men debated the political problems faced by society, and the technological solutions engendered by the global network—from the Arab Spring to Bitcoin.

Quarantines / Voluntary Isolation / Civil Rights

I do not claim to know the perfect balance here, but I have two cents worth I will put in.

It finally hit me that we are using the word "quarantine" all the time, when the first level of quarantine is actually called "voluntary isolation." The nurse who is so upset really ought to be in voluntary isolation. We do seem to have a serious problem with medical personnel who do not understand standard protocols for infectious disease. If I were returning from a time in an ebola clinic, I would have stayed in a hotel in Africa for three weeks before I came home. Then I would have stayed in my home with no visitors for three weeks when I got here. I would not have needed cajoled into this, and would have done it without anyone ordering me to. I would be THAT careful about not giving it to my family. Maybe today's healthcare professionals can learn a little from zoologists?

https://www.aza.org/quarantine/

"Keepers should care only for quarantined animals or if necessary, attend quarantined animals only after fulfilling responsibilities for non-quarantined species."

I brought this quote forward because there is a conference call of nurses blowing whistles, and one of them tells of the nurses going in, treating Duncan, then going back on the floor. They do not do this with chicken pox, for Pete's sake!

Where's all that "Ebola" we were promised?

It's been months now since the beginning of this latest scare tactic. We were told the big bad monster is coming and it's going to eat our children and so far... (crickets). What, one death (and that person fresh from Africa), a few "infected" and "recovered". We were told that this big bad virus was going to spread like wildfire... it was going to get us when we ride the subway, go to Walmart, and God forbid we should ever have to make a trip to the hospital!! We would never return.

Earthships?

Has anyone seen one of these homes?

These are built so inhabitants can live totally off the grid, No heat bills, no electric or water bills. You don't even need a well.

Actor Dennis Weaver built a 6,000 sq. ft Earthship home out of tires and old cans.
