Soils and agriculture

In another life I was a community planner. One way to conserve those good agricultural soils is to use natural landscaping along the edge of rivers and lakes to capture nutrients and slow erosion. At the community I worked for we collaborated with the Soil Conservation Service to maintain and establish these natural barriers along the rivers in our community. The SCS is a great resource for trying to improve these land use practices. Thanks for covering this topic.

Sen. Corey Gardner (R-CO) just told us the real motivation behind Gorsuch's nomination.

Metal as fuel? These Canadian scientists are working to make it happen

Imagine one day fuelling your car with iron powder, rather than gasoline. That's the goal of some Canadian scientists who hope that metal will one day provide a cleaner, greener alternative for our vehicles.

Researchers at McGill University have been studying the combustion capabilities of metal for more than a decade. Last week, they launched an experiment into space to gain further insight to this yet untapped potential. The experiment was designed to help scientists better understand how the metal particles react in weightlessness.


Sometimes I read Facebook and find posts like "I got up this morning and ate breakfast" and there will be 46 "likes" and comments such as "Congratulations on your breakfast!" and "Keep on getting up" and "Way to get up and eat!" and "Hey, what a coincidence, I did the
