EPA: Reduce Runoff: Slow It Down, Spread It Out, Soak It In

Posted by admin on September 21, 2012 in Environment Protection with No Comments


This video is from the EPA, and you can visit their site here: http://www.epa.gov/owow/nps/lid/video.html

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Botanic Garden produced this 9-minute on-line video, Reduce Runoff: Slow It Down, Spread It Out, Soak It In, that highlights green techniques such as rain gardens, green roofs and rain barrels to help manage stormwater runoff.
The film showcases green techniques that are being used in urban areas to reduce the effects of stormwater runoff on the quality of downstream receiving waters. The goal is to mimic the natural way water moves through an area before development by using design techniques that infiltrate, evaporate, and reuse runoff close to its source.

The techniques are innovative stormwater management practices that manage urban stormwater runoff at its source, and are very effective at reducing the volume of stormwater runoff and capturing harmful pollutants. Using vegetated areas that capture runoff also improves air quality, mitigates the effects of urban heat islands and reduces a communitys overall carbon footprint.

The video highlights green techniques on display in 2008 at the U.S. Botanic Gardens One Planet Ours! Exhibit” and at the U.S. EPA in Washington, D.C., including recently completed cisterns.

Earth 4 Energy – is it Really the Best DIY Renewable Energy Guide?

Posted by admin on September 20, 2012 in Renewable Energy with No Comments


Earth4Energy is a set of instruction manuals and support videos that shows you how to save a staggering amount of money on your home energy bills. You do not have to build a 500 hundred foot high wind turbine to save money on energy, you can get the same results by building a much smaller one using the Earth4Energy kit.

The Earth4Energy kit is the best do it yourself system for people looking to save money on their home energy bill. There is no other kit out there that explains in such detail in it’s manuals or even includes videos with their kit. With the Earth4Energy kits, construction of your alternative energy machine is extremely easy. It is meant to be this way so that as many people as possible will have access to alternative solar and wind energy.

If you have a weekend or even a few extra hours to spare you can save yourself and your household a ton on your home energy bills. The Earth4Energy kit with just one alternative energy device has been shown to drop home energy costs by 50-80%! Installing multiple devices could drop you energy bills to virtually nothing. In fact, the kit includes information on where to get free batteries for your project. Using these batteries you can store the alternative energy so that if the weather is not cooperating you can still use alternative energy. All the alternative energy devices that Earth4Energy teaches you to make are very portable. You can take them anywhere, for any use!

Eartth4Energy is simply an instruction manual ‘Do-It-Yourself’ system for alternative home energy. There is no other system available that makes itself so user friendly that you can put it together in a matter of hours. So if you are truly interested in saving yourself from high energy bills, you should start to save big on your home energy costs!

Landfill Problems and Global Warming Effects

Posted by admin on September 20, 2012 in Global Warming with 28 Comments


Wastes with high moisture content or which receive artificial irrigation, rainwater, surface or groundwater infiltration produce leachate and methane gas at a high rate. It has been shown, from one study that once a dump is saturated, annual precipitation of 36 inches per year which exists in certain parts of the world can percolate 1 million gallons of contaminated water per acre annually.

This is a lot of contaminated water – also known as leachate or garbage juice! This contaminated water is ten to 1,000 times more contaminated and damaging to the local surface and groundwater than sewage, although it contains few human disease organisms (pathogens) and much fewer than sewage.

All nations also produce huge quantities of scrap tires. Waste scrap tires present landfill problems. They are hard to compact, may rise to the surface over time in poorly compacted waste and provide dangerous breeding grounds for mosquitoes and rats, in the water which collects in them. They also unfortunately do not disintegrate to reduce their volume in stockpiling.

Also if industrial hazardous wastes are landfilled the waste materials that will often be found in the site will be such that the sites will later be classed as contaminated land and do not meet the contaminated soil criteria. This is to be expected where regulatory control is poor but the cost to the community is hugely greater than paying for good regulation in the first place.

It is not realized by many in the community at large that waste prevention and recycling are critical to reducing or stopping climate change. Waste-to-energy (WTE) plants create heat and electricity from burning mixed solid waste. Because of high corrosion in the boilers, the steam temperature in WTE plants may end up being less than 400 degrees Celsius. This has to be avoided because at these temperatures of combustion many hazardous by-products of incomplete combustion will be present which are very harmful to the local environment and the health of future occupants, if not cleaned up.

But, the adoption of large scale waste prevention and recycling will help address global climate change by decreasing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and saving energy (US Environmental Protection Agency).

The fact is that global warming, also known as the greenhouse gas effect, remains controversial in many quarters. Many still question the basis of the prediction of climate change. However, Under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the United States agreed in principle to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases to somewhat below 1990 levels by the period 2008-2012.

In 1997 global cooling was a big environmental worry and an issue back then, but few paid attention to that either, and the concerns were soon found to be unfounded. The perspective in global cooling is similar to the way people view Global Warming now.

Landfill methane is an excellent and frequently untapped resource. Most times gases are simply flared or burned in the atmosphere, which is much less contributory to the greenhouse gas build-up which worries us all, than just letting the methane (landfill gas) escape without flaring. Landfill methane is typically flared in the developed nations, and almost never flared in the developing world\’s nations.

Opinions about landfill gas as an emissions problem, and even the producer of significant greenhouse gas emissions vary across the US. We have been made aware that state regulators consider methane to be a minor problem in New Mexico, due to the dry climate. However, Albuquerque is treating at least one serious methane problem with a high priority. State-by-state analyses nevertheless, do show a large and untapped potential for biomass-fired electricity generation. A very separate question, of course, is how much of this potential makes financial, environmental, or political sense.

However, interest in the use of landfill gas to fuel electricity generation is growing. Landfill methane is collected at a growing number of landfill sites and burned for energy production which mitigates the global warming effect of the methane as well as producing electricity and/or heat.

Bodyguard Training and First Aid

Posted by admin on September 20, 2012 in Environment Protection with 3 Comments


First Aid skills are important in any walk of life, but being skilled in First Aid is absolutely fundamental to being a Close protection professional. Some schoolchildren are now taught very basic First Aid. This is a good thing. First Aid should be on everybody’s curriculum. Over the years, I have seen and been amazed at the number of bodyguards’ CV/resumes that make no mention of First Aid. When questioned in interview, these candidates mention that yes, they have done First Aid in the Army: ‘about ten years ago’ or ‘I did a lifesaving course, “a while ago”‘.

This is simply not good enough. I can guarantee with some certainty that First Aid skills will be needed in a career of close protection. You may never need that bootleg turn that you practise over and over in the car or the quick draw and chair roll that you have perfected for hotel corridors; but you will need your knowledge of First Aid.
Professional Bodyguards Must Train in First Aid
First Aid is a skill like any other; it needs constant practice to remain effective. Techniques and ideas change so it is imperative that you carry out continual training and remain up to date. Most books on ‘close protection’ include a chapter on First Aid but this is a token gesture and often used only to pad out the book. Authors tend to stick to sexy First Aid like suckling chest wounds, tracheotomies and gunshot wounds. They ignore the simple facts, such as your principal is hundreds of times more likely to die choking on a pretzel than be shot in the chest. First Aid needs its own book, and cannot be covered in a single chapter. You will need to undertake a course in First Aid.

In the UK when the Security Industry Authority (SIA) commissioned the key skills or core competencies, the draft documents included just sexy First Aid. Some sensible folk lobbied to get this taken out and be replaced by a formal qualification in First Aid. Eventually, the SIA chose the Health and Safety Executive’s ‘First Aid at Work’ course, which is run over four days and which is accompanied by written and practical exams. In the UK, therefore, you will need this First Aid qualification to get a licence to operate as a Close Protection Officer. The course covers much more than tracheotomies and for those that really want to know, yes, they do teach you about suckling chest wounds.

The course will cover the following:

* Introduction to first aid
* Personal hygiene
* Circulation
* Resuscitation
* Dressings and bandages
* Wounds and bleeding
* Circulatory disorders
* Duties of a First Aider
* The skeleton
* Fractures
* Unconsciousness
* Burns and scalding
* Handling and transport

This course certificate is valid for three years; thereafter, before your certificate runs out, you must undertake a two day refresher course. Go over three years and you will have to do the whole course again to get re-certificated.

Other Essential First Aid Courses

While the basic First Aid course above is enough to get you a licence to operate in the UK you should consider at least two other First Aid qualifications, which are essential if you are to become a protection professional.

Automated External Defibrillator Course

This short course teaches you how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). This device can be used to administer measured electric shocks to people in the throes of cardiac arrest and is the best way of increasing their chance of survival. Many close protection teams routinely carry AEDs and you must be trained in their use. Most ‘de-fib’ courses last around one day and the course certificate must be renewed every six months.

First Aid for children

Very often the addition of a first aid certificate applicable to children will make a close protection officer more employable in a family environment. Most courses available are aimed at giving first aid to adults so you will have to look hard to find one especially for children. First aid techniques for children differ in some crucial areas. Participants learn about techniques for resuscitating children and infants, conducting risk assessments and how to deal with choking, burns, scalds and seizures. In a career in close protection, you will find that you work for principals that have families that include young children. You will often be charged with their care. You need to know what to do in the event of an accident or illness. If you are working in an environment that includes children, you cannot be a bodyguard without these skills.

Energy Enhancement and the Removal of all the Blockages from all your Previous Lifetimes

Posted by admin on September 20, 2012 in Clean Energy with No Comments


This is what they mean when they say a Master is not under the Laws of Karma. He has dissolved all the negativity from all his past lives. He has used his Soul, Monad, Logos And Higher Energies, with Samyama to dissolve all the negativity, to Forgive all the bad actions that he has done, and have been done to him.

Create a Clean white sheet again from your Messy Dark History Painting which you have created brushful by brushful, every day of your life.

One of our Students age 37, the director of an Internet Business in Bolivia, started to clean his future of this lifetime by mistake, before he had cleaned all of his past lifetimes and this life. He saw himself at the age of 56 with two children in his arms and no wife and then…. all became blank. He then cleaned this lifetime and all previous lifetimes of all their Negative Energy blockages, Energies and bad Karma. When he came to clean the future of this life he saw himself entering into the light, becoming a spiritual teacher in his fifties, onwards towards AGE 80!!!

One of my Teachers, Zen Master Hogen said, We are all History Paintings. We start with a clean white sheet and then every day we apply paint. Usually our History Paintings become very messy!!! “I am a clean white sheet which is washed constantly. Every time we meet, it is as if there is no emotional holdover from the past. Every time, I see you clearly, as if for the first time!” Zen Master Hogen.

How? Well, through many Meditations…
