Thanks for the connection, David! Sounds like you're up to some interesting things yourself. Let's get together for a cup of chai or coffee sometime. Blessings, James

Hi David--

Thanks for connecting with me! I checked out your Silverlight website, and wow! I'm adding Irene's book to my reading list for sure. :-) Sounds like we have a lot in common, so I trust our paths will cross one of these days.

Best,
Lisa

Wow. Irene's work is fantastic! Very thought provoking and also makes me laugh (or afraid?) about what is going through my brain. :)

Hi David!

Thanks for your great response. I think i'm going to do the RVTV class again starting Saturday. I can do it for free since I've taken it before. Yay! I will definitely want to internet stream if I do a show.
I'm slammed for this week and heading to Portland next week for a few days, but let's make a date for coffee after that? The week of April 13th?

Good morning!

Love your China pictures here. Beautiful!!

Question: Are you doing a regular program on RVTV, and do you add the live internet stream to your websites? I'm thinking seriously about doing a show.

Thanks for the good website vibes. I'm feeling back in flow this week and planning on having this puppy up very soon. Thank goodness so that I can move on!

Have a wonderful day. - Ms. Suz (cute) :)

China reassigns 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in bid to fight pollution | The Independent

China has reportedly reassigned over 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in a bid to combat pollution by increasing the country's forest coverage.  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland. The majority will be dispatched to Hebei province, which encircles Beijing, according to the Asia Times which originally reported the story. The area is known to be a major culprit for producing the notorious smog which blankets the capital city.

Good News: This Year's Monarch Butterfly Migration Is Larger Than We've Seen in Recent Years | Better Homes & Gardens

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

Germany to close all 84 of its coal-fired power plants, will rely primarily on renewable energy | Los Angeles Times

Reporting from Berlin — Germany, one of the world’s biggest consumers of coal, will shut down all 84 of its coal-fired power plants over the next 19 years to meet its international commitments in the fight against climate change, a government commission said Saturday.

New urban algae canopy produces as much oxygen as four hectares of woodland | The Plaid Zebra

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland. When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
