Proper Breathing for Relaxation

Breathing is a natural function that the body performs without much help from us, however, we can effect our breathing so that proper breathing becomes the basis for good stress management and good relaxation techniques. The slower we breathe, the more relaxed we are. Practice these breathing tips each morning before rising, and each evening upon retiring, and anytime during the day when you want to take a “peace” break. Use proper breathing techniques to help control your stress response… Continue

Maybe we could do it better...



We don't trust practically anything government touches anymore. Left, right, center, we don't see ourselves represented in the decisions government makes or the process they use to make them.



What if some significant decisions were put in the hands of well-informed citizens--call them 'everyday,' 'average,' 'common'-- people with no axe to grind and no…

If Your Really Want to Avoid the Flu | Health Reporting

Editor's Note: Building your own natural immunity is essential to avoiding the flue and it's symptoms. Our own Jim Jordan is beginning a series of classes next month on "Natural Vs. Artificial Immunity." I'd highly recommending your attending his classes if you want to build your immune system.



Staying healthy and avoiding all types of flu has nothing to do with getting a vaccine and everything to do with leading a healthy lifestyle.

How do we re-establish connection when communication breaks down?

If we feel resentful or victimized by an interaction or lack of response, we are not asking ourselves these 3 critical questions: what’s my unfulfilled expectation in this situation, or, what intention isn’t being realized that I am disappointed or frustrated about? or, what do I need to say that I am not saying?



When there is a communication breakdown, how do we re-establish trust? It is personally challenging to recognize and own our 50% contribution to all breakdowns in which we… Continue

You know that definition of "insanity" that everyone quotes?



OK, with everything else going on, this one's not exactly on the front burner. But one thing I'd like to know from the Guv candidates is how many chips they're ready to spend to reverse the 1990s initiative measure that commits every dime of gas tax and auto registration money to highway construction, or closely-related expenditures.



If that weren't the law, we… Continue

After the election



Last week voters in my town renewed Oregon's only tax on prepared meals and beverages, established 15 years ago to fund major sewage treatment upgrades and an open space program to establish neighborhood parks and trails. We fought over it back then and fought about it again this time.
On Tuesday we re-upped for the tax by a 59-41% margin. Does that end the…

How much does free speech mean if we're scared to use it?



There's a court battle going on in Washington State over whether your name should be public information if you sign a petition to put a measure on the ballot. The measure that brought this up would reverse a state law that expanded the rights of same-sex partners, and petitioners claimed that gay rights activists are so hostile that they might scare some people away from… Continue

Oh The Stories We Tell...

One aspect of Mindfulness has to do with the inner dialog that goes on inside our head. This inner dialog expresses itself in the stories we tell such as, “I just cannot get it together!” , or “This stuff just irritates me no end!”. There are hundreds of these little stories that we tell ourselves and others every day.



These negative or self limiting stories have a powerful impact upon our lives. Almost all of them are simply stories that our family or friends have passed on to us,… Continue

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.
