More than just fitness

My blog is dedicated to teach people what is going on in the world

I’m angry that I live in a world where a man who picks food for a living can’t afford to feed his family.

Go Green Tip 23: Don’t eat fish

Seafood is a popular, healthy, sensible and guilt-free choice… or is it? 80% of the world fish stocks are over exploited or exploited to their maximum & this could cause unacceptable damage to the oceans ecosystem with potential long-term negative effects.

Dolphins, marine turtles, seabirds, sharks, juvenile fish, fish with little commercial value, corals, starfish - billions of unwanted animals are caught every year by fishing boats then discarded dead or dying back into the ocean. Known as bycatch, the incidental capture of these so-called “non-target species” is a major fisheries management problem, wasting fishermen’s time and hundreds of millions of dollars in damaged gear and inefficient fishing methods.
It’s also one of the greatest threats to the marine environment, wasting a valuable natural resource and causing dramatic declines in populations of many marine species. As such, WWF is working on bycatch as a priority conservation issue.

imagine if mike brown’s family had considered deleting their son’s social media before the media got to it

that would turn heads

"what are they trying to hide?"

"a teenager with no internet profile? seems fishy"

"did he keep a low profile because he was in a gang?"

but no one thinks its weird that darren wilson’s internet EVERYTHING seems to have magically vanished

Charlie Sheen smokes crack live in a web-chat and they make him the highest paid actor on television.

An 18-year-old black person smokes a blunt and he is unfit to live.

I see you white power.

You cannot call a society which has 3.5 million homeless and 18.5 million vacant homes civil. That’s violent and morally bankrupt.

This house will generate more energy than it takes to build it, operate it, and charge the car in the garage

Designboom shows the latest building designed to the ZEB (Zero Energy Building) standard, perhaps the toughest and most interesting standard in the world. It is a demonstration project, a 2,200 square foot single family house in Norway designed by Snøhetta.

How tough is this standard? By comparison, the Passivhaus standard sets a limit on how much energy a building can use, but doesn’t care what you build it out of, so many of them are full of foam insulation; ZEB takes the embodied energy of all the materials into account and has to generate “more energy than what was used for the production of building materials, its construction, operation and disposal.” As I noted in a post on PowerHouse Kjørbo, (also designed by Snøhetta) this standard would have a rough time in America.

In America, the plastics industry would go crazy over a standard like this; In each square foot of R-20 insulation, cellulose insulation embodies 600 BTU, Mineral wool 2,980 BTU, and Expanded polystyrene is 18,000 BTU (according to Martin Holladay at the GBA) The concrete industry, responsible for 5% of the CO2 emitted in the world, would be making cement overshoes.

In fact it makes a lot of sense to look at the whole picture, and to use materials with the lowest possible carbon footprint. The house “utilizes passive and active strategies to accomplish the desired performance aims, while simultaneously focusing on emotive comfort and sense of well being to maintain the non-quantifiable qualities of a home.”

It not only generates enough energy to power the house and offset the embodied energy of the materials and construction phase, but it is designed to power an electric car for a minimum of 12,500 miles per year.

I would love to see someone try this in North America, this is a real challenge. Like this house, it would probably be made with a lot of wood, recycled materials, cellulose insulation, concrete and foam free and with a serious load of photovoltaics on the roof.

The house is under construction now, and is supposed to open September 17, 2014.
