NEW TREND IN THE WORLD
From Australia, to California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, on to Chicago, and even atop New York high rise buildings there is a new "mini trend" in society. Thousands of educated people are finding new ways to "grow their own". There is an idea that the current system of food supply is not fresh and healthy and more and more people feel that the food chain may be vulnerable to disruption. So, people are growing their own.
Ben and Saneh Boothe have developed prototypes to study and learn about food growth. "Our parents and grandparents knew all about growing food, canning and enjoyed the benefits of fresh food. We are learning it from scratch." said Ben. His 87 year old mother, often gives him pointers that he considered priceless.
EMF'S have long been considered an invisible issue for business and industry. But in recent years more and more corporations have had on site EMF inspections done, and taken steps to lower the exposure of employees to Electro Magnetic Fields.
With every electric device, every motor, every wire an EMF is produced. Many scholars and researchers have concluded that this is a health risk, but it is a risk that business can, in most cases easily deal with.
Not only can work areas be re-organized, and people's desks put in areas where there are low EMF readings, but EMF's from outside the building can be shielded or blocked. Equipment within the building, can also be relocated or shielded.
We all have hated fumes from trucks and now we have more reason since the World Health Organization announced that diesel fumes may cause cancer.
However, so many people are exposed and breathe in the exhaust that the classification change from “probably carcinogen” to carcinogen was important.
TRUE "HOMELAND" SECURITY, HOW SAFE IS YOUR FOOD AND FUEL SUPPLY IN THE EVENT THE GRID AND FOOD STOCKS FAIL?

Reuters and many other publications have reported warmer temperatures of our world.
9 of the 10 warmest years on record occurred since 2000. Warmer temperatures and more radical and unstable weather patterns cannot be ignored. Something is going on out there and this week we experienced the radiation from massive solar flares. All of this, and we consider what happens if the ice caps at the poles do continue to melt and shrink. Will sea levels continue to rise and endanger people in coastal areas?
Then we read that indeed, the oceans have been measured and have increased temperature world wide. Explorers tell us that glaciers are melting at a rapid pace, unlike ever documented before.
The impacts of the worst drought in 40 years are significant. The drought was most acute in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, and Kansas. Global Perspectives (http://www.botheglobalperspectives.com) took a multi-state tour to see,
listen and learn. We share this report with you. Our message is to inform and educate, because the American people need to know.
Wildfires followed drought, from Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Implications and loss of human life, farms, grassland, ranches, and wildlife are huge. Economic implications enormous. Will require years to repair, regroup, re-gain losses. THE POINT OF THIS MESSAGE IS THAT: Americans should help.
This bear dropped by one cabin for breakfast. His friends came by and took the pet food
that was locked and sealed hard plastic container. The bear simply took the large bucket of food back into the deep forest to dine. Afsaneh Tabee said: "When we see bear, we aren't about to report them, because forest officials in Northern New Mexico have changed policy for budget reasons. Instead of trapping them sedating them and hauling them back into the deep forests, they just kill them."
A question might be in order. The State Fish and Game departments, and the Forest Service, were chartered to preserve our natural lands, and to protect our native species. In times of drought, you would think that our governments would take steps to help them through tough times, rather than executing them to save gas money.
President Obama has done it again. Assailed by relentless pressure from right wing groups, big business and Wall Street influences, particularly from industrial polluters, he has tabled a centerpiece of policy, that Americans, concerned about air quality, have been working on for years. Industry in America has used every loophole and every pressure point to find ways to continue to belch out millions of tons of smog and ozone creating pollution. This is the central cause of global warming and the climate change that has impacted the world. Now, the most powerful nation on earth, led by it's president, has given up.
In his presidential campaign he repeatedly said that he would put in place stronger regulations to keep our air clean. Now he has told the EPA to stop plans to reduce ozone concentrations...smog.
This is what is so difficult to understand about this president. His willingness to pull back on matters that he has formerly said were matters of principle. His logic? That it would lower regulatory pressure on business and perhaps help the economy because we can't afford clean air. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. This is the same argument that third world nations have been giving for years, to avoid environmental responsibility. India, China, Latin America, Africa all cry out: "Hey man, we can't afford environmental responsibility, besides it causes more regulations."
As Irene pounds the east coast many people now remember how important it is to have a good insurance adjuster, when there is hurricane or storm damage. Under the law, insurance companies have to send an adjuster such as http://www.benboothe.com within a short time framework, some within 15 days. Adjusters must be available to inspect the damage quickly. And most people don't know, that whatever settlement the adjuster gives, is binding upon the insurance companies. "Our average hurricane response time is 2 days" reported Ben Boothe, who is a licensed insurance adjuster in several states, a broker, and a licensed appraiser. Boothe represents national insurance companies, banks and also does adjustment, valuation and appraisal consulting for special projects.
News reports say that the 500-mile wide Hurricane Irene, with winds of around 80mph is moving slowly northwards. New York and other large cities are in its predicted path.
We noted this article in NPR, and give them credit for an excellent piece. Many people in other parts of the world, including Fort Worth, Texas, have been fearful of the impacts of new nuclear energy development. Ft. Worth/Dallas is downwind from a sizable nuclear power plant. We bring this in for relevence with our thanks to NPR's Frank Langfitt who wrote the item
"Saturday, Japan commemorated the 66th anniversary of the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima, but the ceremony was different this year.
In March, a massive earthquake triggered a meltdown at the Japanese nuclear plant in Fukushima. The plant continues to leak radiation in the worst atomic accident since Chernobyl. Saturday's ceremony focused on the nuclear attack on Japan in 1945, but the country's ongoing nuclear disaster loomed large.
