Oh, would be lovely to read, thank you! Is she intending (and permitted) to do something with the information, will it be published somewhere...?

Got only one today - I haven't gotten to check any deliberately more positive news sources in ages... sadly!

Fiat lux!  Cheaply, easily, and off the bloody Kontrol-grid for a change! 


Attention corporate lawyers for utilities companies: look into the usual helotism-friendly strategies of corporate proprietary-property-rights 
that lay claim to any natural phenomenon that might conceivably turn a profit if metered (and incidentally thus control the masses), this 
time concerning light (or perhaps energy itself, especially its "unauthorized"  grass-roots production via methods of simple mechanical 
advantage ). . .

"Early civilizations recognized the importance of the Sun. The chief deity in many ancient cultures was a Sun god or goddess.
Ancient Egyptians worshipped Ra, a falcon-headed god who carried the Sun Disk on his headdress. Every day, Ra would 
cross the sky in a 'solar boat'."

Aaaah, phooey -- it'll never get off the ground.  Cool

RE: The Positive News Thread
John Francis, environmentalist, took on a 17 year vow of silence to learn to better listen to his opponents. He recently broke it because he discovered that, beyond preserving nature, how we treat each other is fundamental.

Quote:Over the previous 6,205 days, Francis says he learned that humans were as important a part of the environment as the nature that surrounds them. For him, the environment changed from being about loss of species, and habitat and pollution, to also include people and how we treat each other. But, Francis says no one really talked about that when we talked about 'the environment.' So, he decided he needed to speak out about how issues like human rights, civil rights, gender equality, economic equity factor into the environment as well.

"How we treat each other was like our first opportunity to treat the environment in a sustainable way or even figure out what we mean when we talk about sustainability," says Francis
