Cue The Matrix parallels.
True, stories like this, and those related to my crack-smoking mayor, give me a reason to get up each morning.
FYI, regardless of what parents have been telling their kids for decades, most people actually sit too far away from their TVs to enjoy the optimal immersive visual experience
Same place the chem-ag fertilizers get it from - the soil. Who fertilizes the forests?
The parent poster is referring to plants known to be nutrient accumulators. They cycle nutrients from the soil into their leaves, making them available to other plants as they die off.
Yeah, "The Qatar plant—which is supported by Qatari fertilizer companies Yara International and Qafco"
If one really wants to discuss the possibilities behind "Greening the Dessert", Geoff Lawton is blazing a far more promising path:
Not to mention the queen is far too op. She needs to be nerfed to balance the game. I'm sick and tired of getting demolished by queen pickers. NoobS!
I resemble this remark, but I don't think I'm the target audience of these graphic card vendors. The only game I currently play is DOTA on the Warcraft III engine, under wine on Linux Mint 14 on an AMD64 system I assembled around 2005 that includes a Radeon 9500 or 9600.
I don't meet the system requirements for DOTA2 on Steam, so I'm guess I need to upgrade some time in the next couple of years.
This thinking big is fun, let me try.
Build a train track that orbits the earth. Build a huge tower that functions as an elevator. The top of the elevator is a train station. Once clear of the atmosphere, power up the train until it reaches orbital velocity.
IT CAN BE DONE!
Coding is more like writing a book than building a car. There is little reason to enforce a schedule and central location on everyone.
In the end, it's all about your ability to deliver - that's what determines your worth, so it should be up to each individual to determine what works best for them, as far as schedule and location.
I'd mod you up if I had points to give. Rocket stoves and rocket mass heaters are the most promising developments in clean, high efficiency and low-cost heating.
I'm Canadian, but I speak on behalf of those who live in any representative democratic political system.
This is just about enough. It's one thing to have a representative democratic form of government, but laws should not be passed that the majority do not want - and it shouldn't require a monumental effort to overturn. Apathy is too easily leveraged by those with less than honourable intentions.
Representative democracies were instituted for a number of fundamental and practical reasons, including the assumption that those with a passion, skill and education in the political process could be trusted as visionaries and representatives to form laws that are in the interest of the public majority, and it was otherwise too costly and, thus, impractical to subject every bill to a public vote. This is no longer the case and is time to empower citizens their fair share of participation in the system.
In this day and age, there is no reason why we cannot delegate the elected representatives to draft and sponsor bills, but they should not be passed without being first subject to majority vote online before they are invoked as law. If less than 50% respondents fail to approve, it is vetoed.
Similarly, the public should have the ability to repeal existing laws via a similar process, perhaps backed by a system to empower citizens to campaign for support on any issue.
Government investment in post-secondary education has declined significantly in my lifetime. Kinda makes you wonder what the government expects from its citizens, as far as contributions to the GDP, if the majority cannot afford to acquire the skills required for employment beyond the service industry.
In Canada, they actually try to pass it off as an "Energy Bar". Those words are actually in small print under the logo.
We don't need to develop this in a lab. It is already being done in many plants and used as a strategy for sustainable soil development.
Make use of the phosphorous that is already present in deeper soils. Plant dynamic accumulators that cycle nutrients such as phosphorous from their roots to their surface as companion plants to your crops.
Check out the dynamic accumulator list in the following:
Another option: include bird-attracting plants or feeders. Their manure is rich in many nutrients, including phosphorous.
