Win 2 tickets for Airlander’s maiden flight!
The Airlander, created by Hybrid Air Vehicles, is prepping for its first passenger flight in 2016. So, basically, this thing can be anything you want it to be. Imagination is the only limit, so if you can afford to buy a blimp and kit it out with an infinity pool that stretches hundreds of feet, the Airlander can handle it.
I came across this on the web the other day and decided to post it here. It’s pretty cool, but I do not know who the author is or was…anyone have any clue?

Had to put this up… this is beekeeping from Poland..
Ever since colonial times there have been attempts to evict the Ogiek from their ancestral forest, usually on the pretext that they are degrading it.
But when the Ogiek are removed, their forest is not protected but rather exploited by logging and tea plantations – some owned by government officials.
This influx of illegal settlers has been so extreme in recent years that much of the Mau forest is severely degraded.
The Kenyan government is trying to evict everyone from the forest, including the Ogiek who have been living there for centuries.
If the Ogiek are evicted from their forest home it could spell disaster for the forest and for the Ogiek, who will become ‘conservation refugees’.

One Indiana farm has made its operation entirely sustainable.
Mark Stoermann, Director of Operations for AMP Americas, a transportation logistics company, explains how it works: “We take two products: milk and manure. They’re both separated from the cow, the manure here in the barns and the milk in the milking parlor, and they come together as renewable natural gas on a tanker truck that then is able to deliver that milk all over the upper Midwest.”
AMP Americas pioneered the technology used in the Fair Oaks digester, a process that begins three times a day when the cows are moved to one of 11 milking parlors on the property. A giant vacuum tanker sucks the manure out of the stalls and delivers it to the digester, where it is heated. Microbes break the waste down into natural gas, which rises to the top and is piped out as fuel. The leftover waste product is re-used on the farm as fertilizer for crops such as feed corn.
