Crawford Lake shows humans started a new chapter in geologic time, scientists say A group of scientists said Tuesday the best evidence for humanity’s overwhelming impact on the planet could be found at Crawford Lake in Milton, Ontario. The lake’s finely layered sediments contain a thousand-year record of environmental history, culminating in an explosion of man-made disruption around the middle of the 20th century. That’s when scientists say human activities — from nuclear weapons tests and fossil fuel combustion to deforestation and global trade — began to leave an indelible imprint on Earth’s geologic record.

Eagle Who Thought Rock Was an Egg Finally Gets to Be a Dad In early March, a bald eagle named Murphy, a resident of the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park, Missouri, was ready to become a father. He crafted his nest carefully in the bottom of his enclosure, his home for most of his 31 years of life since an injury left him unable to fly. ... Then, news came from Ste. Genevieve, Missouri: A young eaglet had fallen from its nest during a storm and needed somewhere to stay. The World Bird Sanctuary realized that this could be Murphy’s big chance.

Connecting: The power of candlelight moments On a recent flight to New York, I had the privilege of sitting next to Anna, a teacher in the Waldorf style of education. Based on the approach of Austrian philosopher, Rudolf Steiner, Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential, and academically rigorous approach to education. They integrate the arts in all academic disciplines for children from preschool through 12th grade to enhance and enrich learning. Waldorf education aims to inspire life-long learning in all students and to enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.

We’re building roofs wrong. A different approach can save money and lives. Previous generations of cool roofs were generally low-tech: the equivalent of a fancy can of white paint or gray shingles. These work. On a summer afternoon, estimates Berkeley Lab, a white roof will stay at least 31 degrees Celsius (55 Fahrenheit) cooler than a darker one. But for practical and aesthetic reasons, not everyone wants a white roof. New products approach the performance of white material in dozens of colors, including black.

Why winemaker Gina Giugni stands by biodynamics in her vineyard - San Francisco Chronicle When Gina Giugni began farming a small vineyard on the extreme Central Coast, heavy tilling and synthetic sprays had stripped the land of its native plants, and invasive species like mustard and malva had taken over. Right away, she was set on reviving the vineyard through a rigorous, sometimes polarizing farming regimen: biodynamics. (Monday June 19th, 2023 — San Francisco Chronicle - California USA)

Biodynamic and the Moon Many non-believers think it is like witchcraft or some gardening feng shui or yet another hocus pocus kind of belief. But when you see it working, you become a believer.

Fairy Tales Could Be Older Than You Ever Imagined In a new study published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, a folklorist and an anthropologist say that stories like "Rumpelstiltskin" and "Jack and the Beanstalk" are much older than originally thought. Instead of dating from the 1500s, the researchers say, some of these classic stories are 4,000 and 5,000 years old. This contradicts previous speculation that story collectors like the Brothers Grimm were relaying tales that were only a few hundred years old.
