Event Description

2012 Natural Building Apprenticeship with COB Together
August 5th-25th: Hybrid Sauna Construction with James Haim

During this three week apprenticeship program you will construct a sauna and, time permitting, a cob oven, from start to finish. As part of this program you will learn the basics of making a foundation, building four different wall systems with materials including cob, straw bale, light-straw-clay and cob-cordwood, and constructing a living roof. In addition you will learn earthen plastering techniques, tour a variety of beautiful natural buildings, spend time designing your own projects and enjoy the many recreational and cultural opportunities the Rogue Valley has to offer.

Participants will camp on-site and be served three organic meals six days a week with one day off each week.  Participants will finish their stay with a one-day rafting trip on the scenic Rogue River. In order to provide the highest quality teaching this apprenticeship is limited to four individuals.

James Haim has experience building with straw bales, cob, paper crete, and light-straw clay, as well as traditional construction. He has worked with Creating Organic Buildings Together for 6 years teaching natural building workshops for people of all ages.  He co-founded the Wilderness Charter School in 1996 whose mission is to study and practice community, personal empowerment, and ecological connection with the intention of creating a sustainable future. James believes that a key element in the environmental movement is creating a positive example of sustainable culture so others have inspiration to look towards as their awareness of the world's environmental and social situation unfolds.

The Deception of Virology | Why Coronavirus Is Not Contagious | The Bernician

Firstly, viruses are not living organisms or living microbes. They do not have a respiratory system, nor do they have a nucleus or digestive system. Viruses are not alive and viruses are not contagious. The fear behind Coronavirus, for instance, is wholly unwarranted. Forget everything you think you know about viruses and bacteria. You have been lied to. ​The science of virology is based upon the study of viruses. However, no real footage of viral activity exists (except for a recently released (2018) short footage of an HIV virus which shows merely 20% of the virus theory process). Such footage is merely 3D animation and models. Scientific Encyclopedia states viruses have been obtained for experimentation by means of extremely powerful centrifuges which must be specially built. Viruses are so small that they average around 0.1 microns in size for a typical virus.​

There Are Two Strains of COVID-2019—But Is One Actually Deadlier Than the Other? | The National Interest

On March 3, 2020, Dr. Xiaolu Tang and his colleagues at Peking University and other institutions published a study in the National Science Review which caused a stir in a world preoccupied by the inexorable spread of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019). From cases identified in China and abroad, he and his colleagues had identified two distinct strains of the virus. 

UN REPORT: Covid-19 Lockdown-Related Hunger Kills 10,000 Children Per Month, Throws 140 Million Into Extreme Poverty | Fort Russ

As the coronavirus plandemic and its restrictions are pushing already hungry communities over the edge, COVID-19-linked hunger is leading to the deaths of 10,000 more children per month over the first year of the pandemic, according to an urgent call to action from the United Nations. Now as lockdowns and international trade routes disrupt vital aid supplies, the UN has warned that the coronavirus pandemic could have an intergenerational effect on the health of millions of children, Daily Sabah reported. Based on the worst-case scenario written by the UN experts, nearly 180,000 children could die this year alone where the pandemic could cause young children to miss 50% of their nutritional care and treatment services. Further, more than 550,000 additional children each month are being struck by what is called wasting, according to the UN – malnutrition that manifests in spindly limbs and distended bellies. Wasting and stunting can permanently damage children physically and mentally, transforming individual tragedies into a generational catastrophe.

S.D. Gov. Noem Dismisses Report Claiming Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Was COVID 'Super Spreader': 'It's Fiction' | Trending Politics

"This report isn’t science; it’s fiction. Under the guise of academic research, this report is nothing short of an attack on those who exercised their personal freedom to attend Sturgis,” said Gov. Noem in a press release Tuesday. "Predictably, some in the media breathlessly report on this non-peer-reviewed model, built on incredibly faulty assumptions that do not reflect the actual facts and data here in South Dakota. “At one point, academic modeling also told us that South Dakota would have 10,000 COVID patients in the hospital at our peak. Today, we have less than 70. I look forward to good journalists, credible academics, and honest citizens repudiating this nonsense," Gov. Noem said. Good journalists are repudiating it, but there may not be any credible academics left anymore given the fact that our system of higher education has long since been dominated by Marxist/Leftists -- some of the same people who tried to tell us that a 'scientific study' from earlier this year 'proved' that riots, protests, and looting-fests have not spread the virus. Only motorcycle rallies and Trump political events spread coronavirus, don't you know.
