Wake up and smell the smoke...



It's not inevitable, but it's close. If there isn't massive thinning of the underbrush in the Ashland watershed, there will come a day when we look at each other in disbelief that we didn't do what was necessary to protect this town ---what we knew was necessary, beyond a single doubt. So this week… Continue

Traditional Native Wild Crafting | Healthy Transformation

One of my life long aspirations came to fruition last week as I was able to go gathering with a beautiful Native American woman named Cynthia King. Cynthia is the daughter of Wallace Black Elk and has been groomed to protect mother nature and teach the people about native herbs and their power to heal.



On the first day out in the wilderness she instructed me on how to listen to the plants and their needs. We went past many stands of herbs which I would have picked if not… Continue

More than a Bike Ride



I think there's magic to cycling. In part that belief comes from Cycle Oregon, which just finished its 22nd edition, seems to accomplish something that public leaders and government agencies have been knocking themselves out to do for as long as I've lived in Oregon. CO makes it look easy, and… Continue

Why Should Bosses pay?



If you wanted to keep the American people too divided to effectively demand real health care reform, try this: lay the lion's share of the health insurance burden on employers. There are millions of them, and they're not about to partner with people who sound like they want businesses to pay even more of the bill.



Thus… Continue

A bad time for closed doors



In the wake of a Dark Age in open government (and the jury's out on how much really changed last January 20), I hear some say that government decision makers should never mull over policy behind closed doors. As in NEVER.



I don't think that's right. But I do think we're in a time that leaders better have a damn good, and damn clear, reason for closing the… Continue

Mother Kali Retreat in Ashland

Namaste Everyone,

Here is a welcome and anticipatory message from Babaji to all who are considering the upcoming Mother Kali Retreat:



As to the retreat on Sri Sri Ma Kali in Ashland Oregon, I am compelled to say that the words "ash land" apply very well in this context. In sacred songs and poems of Mother India, great poet/saints sing to the effect that "my soul has been transformed into a sacred cremation ground, and I sit there in meditation, surrounded by the ashes of what… Continue

Maestro Conference

Maestro conference allows individuals to connect and prosper together as groups of sharing gather, and individuals are able to bring their gifts. Even during recessions, there is an abundance of available opportunities. All that changes is the nature of the opportunities we have. Today, some of the best opportunities come through building relationships. People who thrive in a recession are those who are committed to getting connected and staying connected.



For this,… Continue

Earth & Eco News

Anthropocene

The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans. The word combines the root "anthropo", meaning "human" with the root "-cene", the standard suffix for "epoch" in geologic time. The Anthropocene is distinguished as a new period either after or within the Holocene, the current epoch, which began approximately 10,000 years ago (about 8000 BC) with the end of the last glacial period.

Solar Power To Become 4th Largest Electric Power Capacity In The World (Passing Up Wind) | CleanTechnica

Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis Global Power Industry Outlook, 2018, which posits that solar will surpass wind in global energy capacity starting in 2020, making it the fourth largest source of energy generation behind coal, gas and hydro. Less than a year ago, solar surpassed nuclear energy to reach 5th place.

California is throttling back record levels of solar—and that’s bad news for climate goals | MIT Technology Review

Californians are enjoying a sunny spring, which means the state’s solar farms and rooftop panels are flooding the grid with electricity. The problem is, they’re producing so much that plummeting prices and mandates by the state’s grid operator are forcing renewable power plants to throttle back production. In April, California solar and wind farms shut down or dialed back nearly 95,000 megawatt-hours of electricity, a new record, according to the California Independent System Operator, which manages the vast majority of the state’s electricity. That’s enough to power more than 30 million homes for an hour.
