Editors Corner

In a previous issue, we had a story about tiny houses and their unique advantages. This week we re-visit small houses with a dome home that looks a bit like a hobbit house from the outside, and like something from Star Trek on the inside. Click here

Did you know that cement made from recycled materials may be stronger then traditional mixtures? Ceramic from toilets, bathtubs and basins along with rice husk ash as replacements from some of the conventional ingredients not only makes the cement mixture more environmentally friendly, but also potentially stronger.

Have you heard of the Wisconsin family that found a fully-stocked fallout shelter in their back yard? Apparently it's been there for about 50 years and all the supplies they found seemed to be "remarkably well-preserved". Seems like they would be pretty well set, at least for a short time, should any major disaster happen, except maybe flooding. Click here

Speaking of survival, I remember being told just recently that a really handy thing to know is how to tie different kinds of knots, and, of course, knowing which knots are good for which applications. Well, this week we have a short picture tutorial on a few different kinds of knots and how to tie them. Click here

There's more, but I will leave the rest for you to discover.
Have a wonderful week.

Ship Over The Mountain
By Delores Crowell

The guest speaker from MUFON stirred in me a memory I would like to share. Sometime in the nineties, we became aware that there were psychics who saw Mt. Rainier erupting. These psychics could see it happening. Ram said it would not happen. During that same time period, I was returning home after a four day work week, to my lake house in Clearwood where I was a stones throw from Blue Lake. In this beloved home I lived ten years, walked the wondrous paths around the lakes, fell in love with the grandeur of fir and cedar trees, and had rich soul warming experiences. I was about to have another. On my journey down Bald Hills Rd, I would catch glimpses of majestic Mt Rainier but it was my practice to wait for that perfect spot where I could pull over to a full view of the mountain. Here I would spend a moment for it was a homecoming of sorts. Then too, I would search the skies for UFOs. This was an urge in me that went back several decades.

Wisconsin family discovers fully-stocked fallout shelter in their back yard 50 years after it was installed at the height of the Cold War
For more than a decade after they moved into their house in Neenah, Wisconsin, the Zwick family knew they had a Cold War bunker in their backyard. It was not until 2010 that anyone thought to open the heavy steel hatch, climb down the ladder and explore the 8-foot-by-10-foot chamber that the home's previous owner had built to protect his family from a nuclear attack. Floating in five feet of water that had seemed into the bunker were sealed U.S. Army boxed packed with all of the supplies a family would need to survive two weeks underground. 'We assumed it was just this empty space,' homeowner Carol Hollar-Zwick told the Appleton Post-Crescent. The boxes, old military ammunition crates, contained markings that suggested there might be explosives inside, so the family called the local branch of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Agents opened the crates to find... Hawaiian Punch.

Hole Found in Natural Protective Layer of Earth’s Atmosphere

Scientists have discovered a hole in the atmosphere that allows ozone-depleting compounds and other chemicals to bypass the atmosphere’s natural “washing machine” layer. The lowest layer of Earth’s atmosphere, known as the troposphere, is full of hydroxyl (OH) radicals which are known as the detergent of the atmosphere. This is because OH is highly reactive and can break down all sorts of pollutants, chemicals and natural substances emitted by living organisms including humans, plants, animals, fungi, and microbes. The substances become water soluble and are washed out of the troposphere during rainstorms.

Something Worth Knowing

Reef or Square KnotHow to Tie Knots - A Simple Guide
Tying a Knot
Tying knots is a useful skill to have in the home, garden, when fishing, camping or taking part in other outdoor activities. You may have learned how to tie knots in the Scouts, Girl Guides or at summer camp, but by this stage the steps involved in tying them may be a dim distant memory! There are probably 50 or more types, however this guide concentrates on four useful knots and how to tie them.

Overhand Knot
If someone asks you to tie a knot, this is probably what you would tie. An overhand knot can slip though, especially if the cord/rope is made from low friction slippery material. Therefore it can become undone and is unsuitable and potentially dangerous in many applications.

Green Cement Made From Toilets and Bathtubs May be Stronger Than Traditional Mixtures
An international team comprised of English, Spanish, and Brazilian researchers may have developed a new type of cement made from ceramic waste such as toilets, bathtubs, and basins. And the new mixture has the potential to be even stronger than conventional cement used worldwide. The team is also experimenting with a mixture that uses rice husks instead of chemical compounds, a process that would result in a cement made entirely from reclaimed waste materials. To create the cement, scientists first grind up old ceramics and mix them with water and an activator solution, which currently uses sodium hydroxide or sodium silicate. This solution is then poured into a mold, and exposed to extreme heat, resulting in a solidified mixture. If the activator solution can be replaced with rice husk ash, it would take yet another material out of the waste stream, provide a way for suppliers generate additional income, and create cement made purely from recycled materials. The rice husk method has delivered positive results so far, but the team hasn’t been able to generate anything conclusive just yet. Tests on another mixture made with red clay brick have also proven that this new “green” cement could actually be stronger than other common types currently employed around the world.

On The Lighter Side

10 places to visit before they’re gone: A bucket list for a warming world

Great Barrier Reef, Australia Death Valley, Calif., U.S.A.

Everglades, Fla., U.S.A. Bangkok, Thailand

Summer is just around the corner and, after a winter like this one, it’s high time to start making those vacation plans. Of course, our buoyant spirits were somewhat dampened by the latest U.N. climate report. Spoiler alert, it wasn’t real good, well, unless you’re into horrific droughts, monster storms, heat waves, mass extinctions, failing crops, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria, in which case, jackpot!

Total Lunar Eclipse Arrives just After Midnight On April 15 - It's A Special Event
When people in North America look up at the sky in the early morning hours of April 15, they can expect the moon to look a little different. A total lunar eclipse is expected at this time, a phenomenon that occurs when the Earth, moon and sun are in perfect alignment, blanketing the moon in the Earth's shadow. Although lunar eclipses happen multiple times in a year during a full moon, this eclipse will be a particularly unusual viewing opportunity for North America. Since the Earth's Western Hemisphere will be facing the moon during the eclipse, the continent will be in prime position to view it from start to finish. In addition, the eclipse will coincide with nighttime in North America. The entire continent won't be able to witness a full lunar eclipse in its entirety again until 2019. "Sometimes they'll happen and you'll have to be somewhere else on Earth to see them," said Noah Petro, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter deputy project scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. "Most [residents] of the continental United States will be able to see the whole thing."

Small Houses

Steve Areen builds a dome home in 6 weeks for 9,000 dollars

Photographer and musician steve areen recently finished his dome house on a gifted piece of land on his friend’s mango field. His friend hajjar gibran and his son-in-law tao, local designers and builders, develop unique homes and influenced steve’s desire to create one for himself.  Without the availability of compressed earth blocks, concrete masonry units were used to build the primary structure, not unlike the construction of an igloo. Circular wooden blockouts are used to frame the cantilevering windows before the first layer of plaster is applied which effectively seals the interior.
