Right now you might be doing the following to various degrees:



1. Referring Patients to Tai Chi practitioners for further “self-health.”

The critics have a point...



It could be that the sharpest political wedge that divides Oregonians, and keeps us from finding much more potent agreement than we do, is compensation of public employees. There's plenty to say on this subject. Part of what I want to say in this week's… Continue

I'm not making this up



A B-level news story this week, really just a sidebar to the First-Monday-in-October ritual that launches the Supreme Court's annual session, brought me to my mental knees. It was more than enough to deserve a column this week.
There's a way of thinking in this country…

Confidence in WHAT?



They call it the Consumer Confidence Index, and it is a very, very big deal. In a world where media-manipulated perception becomes reality (and modern financial markets qualify) our collective opinion of whether the economy is good or bad makes the economy good or bad...until our opinion changes.



This is nuts. It becomes more clearly nuts when you ponder a… Continue

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  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland.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.

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.
