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. This is why I also no longer believe in tilling the soil or breaking it or, as Olive Puentespina the farmers says, “huwag hubaran ang lupa (do not strip the soil).” (Saturday June 17th, 2023 — Philippine Star - )

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.

Colours Are The Key To Our Present According To Indivi Sutton This week, her new exhibition, evermore, opens at Saint Cloche gallery in Sydney and is all about right now. As in, surrendering to the present in order to come closer to the “all-embracing truth” as laid out in the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner.

Ethically Kate: Is biodynamic wine the real deal, or a marketing gimmick? To get back to wine, biodynamic wine is grown with many more considerations in mind than profit and taste. The production of the wine starts with attention to the soil and a biodynamic farmer views the vineyard or farm as a collective. No synthetic intervention methods are used; only the employment of natural materials and composts to grow grapes that have not been interfered with by anything that is not found on the vineyard. That’s what makes biodynamic wine different from organic wine. At an organic vineyard, you may see imported organic fertilisers and pesticides. A biodynamic vineyard will usually depend solely on the local land alone, generally through the integration of other crops and animals too. (Sunday April 23rd, 2023 — NZ Herald - New Zealand)

Fruits of his Labor In 1997, Moe Momtazi purchased a 532-acre abandoned wheat farm in what would eventually become the McMinnville American Viticultural Area, or AVA. Using the same holistic farming practices learned from his Persian grandfather, Momtazi transformed the property into Maysara Winery and Momtazi Vineyard. .. Knowing the rules and regulations of organic farming didn’t reflect his soul, he embraced biodynamic farming practices, achieving a Demeter biodynamic vineyard certification in 2005. The winery was certified two years later. (Tuesday April 11th, 2023 — Oregon Wine Press - USA)
