You recycle, don’t you? You don’t worry about all the (cheap) plastic water bottles, soda bottles, and other plastic goods, because you toss them in the recycle bin, right?
I’ve been a big believer in REDUCE-REUSE-RECYCLE being practiced in that order. I live in a rural area where recycling is difficult to accomplish, so in our family, we try to prioritize REDUCE and REUSE and create less of the RECYCLE.
This video suggests that REDUCE-REUSE should be the priority for everyone – the “RECYCLE” part is mostly a myth.
Too funny to pass by:
Reddit is one of my favorite (and probably a lot of people’s favorite) time-waster. It’s a terrific community of commentary, and some information is both astonishing and accurate.
Thanks to Nick Douglas at Lifehacker for the list – you should check it out (and be sure to check the citations – the supporting information for the facts is just as interesting as the facts).
(Note – some of the info, while interesting, is NSFW.)
I’ve visited Fair Oaks several times, and as an Ag attorney, I closely follow the innovations and advancements that come out of that business.
Fair Oaks is also a leader in the ag education space. They strive to make agriculture production – particularly production on a large scale – accessible and understandable by everyone. If you have a chance to visit (about an hour south of Chicago), I highly recommend the experience.
While Fair Oaks currently uses an automated milking system, it is not “robotic.” This article discusses a new application of robotics for milking.
Note the photos of the cows’ living area – clean, well-lit, open stalls. This is consistent with the mission of the owners to be transparent to show how the animals are treated, and that all animals are treated well and humanely. Happy cows produce more milk.
This is for you, FutureLawyer – The ultimate watch for the discerning analog aficionado.
Even for a person who has not worn a watch for more than 25 years (long story), this is a fascinating piece of art and clockwork.
Interesting video (and article) from VOX – 7 minutes, but worth the time to view and listen.
I appreciated the research and the comparison with other countries. Stay informed.
