Looking to make a positive change this Earth Day? How about reducing your plastic waste?
Plastic is found in virtually everything these days. Your food and hygiene products are packaged in it. Your car, phone and computer are made from it. And you might even chew on it daily in the form of gum. While most plastics are touted as recyclable, the reality is that they’re “downcycled.” A plastic milk carton can never be recycled into another carton — it can be made into a lower-quality item like plastic lumber, which can’t be recycled.
I had this for lunch today although I didn’t have white sugar so I used muscodovar, (and i also had 4 bay leafs instead of 1) and it was fantastic, everyone go cook this!

Happening NOW: 30,000 Chinese workers strike at the world’s largest producer of athletic shoes such as Nike and Adidas over pay, benefits, and the right to choose a union. The strike, China’s largest in decades, has shutdown production for two weeks and caused the company’s stock price to plummet.
Bloomberg News reports:
"Workers have disrupted production in Yue Yuen’s Dongguan factory complex, which employs more than 40,000 people, since April 14 in a dispute over pay, benefits and the right to pick their own union. More than 50 percent of the workers were on strike today, Liu said. China Labour Watch, which estimated the striking workers at about 30,000, said a small number had returned to work, without quantifying it.”

Ukrainian authorities have organized new provocations against the movement of the Southeast.
In Donetsk, unknown persons distributed anti-Semitic leaflets signed by the People’s Republic of Donetsk. According to the text of these leaflets, Jews over 16 years were allegedly summoned for registration by the protesters who seized the building of Donetsk Regional State Administration, for which they had to pay 50 dollars. As established by Donetsk bloggers, this roughly fabricated fake was spread by local supporters of the right-wing Kiev authorities, and “freelance journalist” Alex Matsuka willingly took up the theme in the “patriotic” Ukrainian media. However, Rabbi Pinchas Vishedski of the Donetsk Synagogue immediately said that it was a crude forgery and political provocation, calling on people not to believe the fake text.
An attempt at a similar anti-Semitic provocation was averted in Kharkov, where several unknown women who had previously been seen disseminating defamatory material about the Union Borotba (Struggle) tried to put up an anti-Semitic poster at one of the protests. However, Kharkovites immediately stopped the attempt. There is information that these provocateurs are specially created by Kharkov authorities on orders from Kiev for the purpose of subversive activities aimed at splitting and discrediting the protest movement in the city.
Simultaneously, several agents controlled by the Kiev authorities tried to blame the Sloviansk defenders with persecution of Gypsies. However, according to residents Sloviansk, this is slander, and in the continuing protests against the junta there are actively involved representatives of many different nationalities — including Armenians, Meskhetian Turks (who have their largest community in Ukraine), as well as Jews, Greeks and Moldovans.
"All of this is the systematic work of the Kiev authorities to discredit the protest movement in the Southeast. The junta-controlled media cynically is trying to present its participants as xenophobic hooligans,” said Sergei Kirichuk, coordinator of Borotba.
“However, there are xenophobic nationalists among the Kiev Maidan. Among right-wing groups, which took an active part in it, were ideological racists and Nazis involved in beatings and murders motivated by racial hatred. Moreover, liberal defenders of the junta preferred to hush up these well-known facts. After seizing power, the junta freed the neo-Nazis guilty of killing people in the center of Kharkov.
“The movement of the Southeast stands on positions of internationalism; it unites people of different nationalities and upholds their basic rights, regardless of their nationality and the language they speak,” said Kirichuk.
though usually hidden to the human eye, naturally occurring marine biofluorescence can be seen under certain wavelengths of light (like ultraviolet), which causes the cells of the organisms seen here to absorb the light — and some of the photon’s energy — and then emit back a now less energetic light with a longer wavelength and thus a different colour.
Botanical illustrations are one of my favorite things. Here are some creepy poisonous plants (and a lone fungi.) I might try growing some of these little guys this coming spring in my garden. You wouldn’t believe how easily you can find seeds for these online.
