Welcome to the Ashland Resource Center,


You can utilize this resource center as it grows to share information about yourself and your projects, business or organization. This provides a vital inventory of who's doing what so we can better connect and prosper each other. This resource center is akin to our own local community version of FaceBook/MySpace with the ability to meet and greet face-to-face as well.

Your "MyPage"

You can fill out your "MyPage" with more information and resources. In the "text" box you can build a webpage, add a description, format text, upload photos, embed video, etc. This "MyPage" becomes your own social network "portal" with full capabilities. You can "Edit" features on your "MyPage," move the boxes around by selecting and dragging the headers to where you want them on the page. You can even change your theme and appearance.

In the "RSS" box you can add any RSS feed. You can upload a profile photo or logo under "MySettings" so we can feature your page. For new member instructions and tutorial go to: FAQ's & Tutorial

Invite New & Old "Friends"

Use this full-service social media network to share yourself with the local community by inviting both new and old friends under "Members" to become your "friend." This is how this resource center grows strong and we are kept informed locally about events and activities of vital interest.

May all your creative projects and endeavors be blessed with abundance.

Namaste,
-Johnny & Linda, CO-ORGANIZERS

Australia fires impacted 3 BILLION animals in "one of the worst wildlife disasters in modern history" | The Mind Unleashed

Scientists have revealed that nearly three billion animals were killed or displaced in Australia’s unprecedented wave of bushfires in 2019 and 2020, which experts have dubbed “one of the worst wildlife disasters in modern history.” According to the report based on research from several universities and commissioned by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), some 143 million mammals, 180 million birds, 51 million frogs, and a staggering 2.46 billion reptiles were impacted by the crisis.

Solar energy breakthrough creates electricity from invisible light | The Independent

Two major breakthroughs in solar cell technology could vastly improve the way energy is harvested from the sun. The two studies, published in Nature Energy and Nature Photonics, will transform the efficiency and significantly reduce the cost of producing solar cells, scientists say. The first breakthrough involves “upconverting” low energy, non-visible light into high energy light in order to generate more electricity from the same amount of sunlight. Researchers at RMIT University and UNSW University in Australia and the University of Kentucky in the US discovered that oxygen could be used to transfer low energy light into molecules that can be converted into electricity.

Ecocide Law Would Criminalize Free Enterprise | The Epoch Times

First, it was Pope Francis. Now, it is French President Emmanuel Macron. Both leaders have added their considerable moral heft in support of a radical environmentalist proposal to add the new crime of “ecocide” to the Rome Statute that outlaws genocide, ethnic cleansing, and other crimes against humanity.

Double Victory! Monsanto pesticide and GMOs just got whacked! | Center for Food Safety

We just made history! Center for Food Safety (CFS) just had one of the most important legal victories ever against pesticides and GMO crops.  After years of litigation, a Federal Court just banned Monsanto's toxic pesticide dicamba. This also effectively halts the use of GMO crops designed to tolerate that pesticide. This massive win protects farmers, our health, and hundreds of endangered species. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that EPA's approval of the pesticide be immediately revoked and its use stopped. This provides relief to thousands of farmers across the country whose crops have been decimated by the drift of this pesticide onto their fields. In ruling the pesticide approval unlawful, the Court cited "enormous and unprecedented damage" caused by dicamba in the last few years, damage that has "torn apart the social fabric of many farming communities." This victory took years of effort by CFS's legal and science teams and we could not have asked for a better result. We are so proud of them, and so incredibly grateful to our members and donors that enable these major victories to happen.

Billionaire Buys 15% of the Planet to Protect It | Return to Now

Since the creation of the world’s first national park, Yellowstone, in 1872, 15 percent of the earth’s lands and 7 percent of its oceans have been protected in a natural state. But some scientists have concluded that at least half the planet needs to be protected to save a large majority of plant and animal species from extinction. A multi-billionaire has pledged $1 billion to get us closer to that goal. The money will be used to “create and expand protected areas” with the goal of protecting 30 percent of the planet’s surface by 2030. The 83-year-old Swiss-born steel magnate Hansjörg Wyss — who’s now an avid outdoorsman living in Wyoming — has already donated $450 million to protect 40 million acres of land and water across the globe since the establishment of the Wyss Foundation in 1998. Wyss has also supported anti-poaching efforts, river restoration projects, African national park improvements, rails-to-trails initiatives and land conversation in his beloved adopted home, the American West.
