BigBelly Solar - A big solution to stinky cities?

This is a great marriage of technology and need!

The enclosed design eradicates many animal-related issues. Seagulls and other birds are not extracting trash and rodents of all kinds — from squirrels to rats — are barred access from the containers, which has in some cases reduced their overall population in areas where the solution has been deployed. Even bears are unable to access the waste contents due to the unique hopper design.

Even bees and other insects are denied access, keeping them from building nests and stinging visitors and citizens.

Thyroid Tune-up Checklist - Dr. William Davis

So it goes with eliminating wheat from the diet. It works for the majority of people: substantial weight loss and shrinking waist size; reduced blood sugar and blood pressure; relief from arthritis, leg edema, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, etc. But some people complain that, despite saying goodbye to all things wheat, they still have problems. Obviously, as big a problem as modern wheat is, there are other causes for health conditions besides wheat consumption. There are  infections, injuries, sensitivities to other foods, inherited conditions, etc. While wheat exposure is a cause for an incredible amount of human suffering, it is not the only cause.

Mysterious X-Ray - Dark matter solved? (Examiner) News reveals this Wednesday, June 25, 2014, that this newfound indication could lead to a massive breakthrough for science if the particles turn out to be a specific type of constituent known as sterile neutrinos.

Although it’s far too early to confirm, the NASA mysterious signal is certainly a promising discovery for space researchers and science buffs alike. The mysterious X-ray reading was discovered as part of an in-depth investigation into a series of galaxy clusters. The devices used to pick up on this signal are the XMM-Newton and NASA’s very own Chandra X-ray Observatory system.

According to the report, one of the most popular theories is that these X-ray “beams” are being created by the slow decomposition of particles commonly called sterile neutrinos, which are prime contenders for the creation of the “secret” element, dark matter.

Fastest-growing American cities are mostly in the West

My first choice retirement city has been getting kudos lately and I don't like it. Too many people are going to ruin it!!

The Associated Press reached the mayor of San Marcos, Daniel Guerrero, in Chicago, where he was recruiting businesses for his city. He attributed its growth to the presence of two of the nation’s largest outlet malls and Texas State University.

Growth has not brought wealth to San Marcos, however. Its median household income is about $26,000, compared with about $49,000 for Texas as a whole.

San Marcos is about 73 percent white, 36 percent Hispanic and 6 percent African American.

Fastest-growing American cities are mostly in the West. And then there’s Gaithersburg, Md.
