Free The Mapuche Political Prisoners!

1/29/08 NYC......Protest the Chilean Consulate!!!
Tues. Jan. 29th, 2008 10am!

For 500 years, The Mapuche have resisted the colonial oppressors. Whether,
Spain or Argentina or Chile the history of this proud nation has been one
of resistance and struggle.

Under Pinochet, the Chilean government enacted terrorism laws against some
forms of dissent and protest.

Much like our incarcerated freedom fighters here in the United States, the
Mapuche have fallen victim to these laws, laws similar to the current
"Anti -Terror" initiatives being practiced and implemented here.

Political Prisoner Patricia Troncoso has been on a hunger strike for 105
days in protest of her incarceration and of these "anti-terror" laws.

REMEMBER MATIAS CATRILEO!!!

Malcolm in the Middle - of Thailand for New Stem Cell Treatment
source: TransWorld news

New York Man No Longer Has Congestive Heart Failure, Thanks to Adult Stem Cell Therapy.

Malcolm Anderson, of Hudson, New York, reports that his ejection fraction (a measure of the heart's pumping function) has increased from 41% to 55%, thanks to a novel adult stem cell treatment that he received in Bangkok, Thailand.

Malcolm Anderson, 81, was very concerned when he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. He knew he was going downhill. Malcolm asked his doctor, "What can I do about congestive heart failure?" His doctor replied, "you can take lasix."

To Malcolm, that wasn't a great option. "Is that all I can do? I thought there must be something better than taking lasix the rest of my life" said Malcolm.

"I had an ejection fraction of 41%, not debilitating, but, long term, not good. I knew it would gradually get worse and worse."

Malcolm decided to search the internet and look for an alternative method of treating his congestive heart failure. He found that option in Theravitae, a biotechnology company in Thailand, that developed a procedure to treat congestive heart failure and coronary artery disease using a patient's own stem cells.

Theravitae's Vescell adult stem cell technology employs adult stem cells harvested from a small amount of the patient's own blood and does not require bone marrow extraction.

"I thought if it doesn't do any good, at least it doesn't do any harm," said Malcolm.

Malcolm was a little apprehensive before his arrival in Bangkok in March, 2007. "Once I got there, it was a piece of cake. They took great care of me from the moment I arrived at the airport."

Malcolm's own stem cells were implanted into his coronary arteries via catheter in a simple procedure very similar to an angioplasty.

Eight months later, the stem cell therapy has improved Malcolm's quality of life. "I recently visited my doctor - my diagnosis now is that I don't have heart failure anymore! My ejection fraction is 55%. That is a 30% increase! I'm feeling top shelf. I'm working again. I'm happy."

So... hello!

no i'm not dead yet, thanx for worrying
Back in aigues, we met arancha, a fruitarian wanna be!! She's a friend of rudolf & pretty cool i think. As we got back to his place, it was already night & there was no more wood to make fire. So arancha, rudolf & i went in the bottom of the garden to get & dead tree & turn hir into wood to warm us up! That was a funny trip. rudolf's garden is pretty huge & walking in the dark there can be dangerous lol! Big holes & pits! Anyway, we made it ok & got some warmth for the night.
The next day was market day in el campello. We first got to some healthfood store in an other village, then got to the huge market. On our way back, laurent, the dogs & i stopped on a beach. nanny had a good lot of fun. She found many pieces of wood, & i found some gorgeous waves to picture
In the evening, rubio came to the house & actually slept there. They wanted to make a party for us, but we wanted to go south the next day.
On the 29th, we left. laurent drove a lot. We first got to granada, then to malaga. i so much wanted to spend my birfday there, to sleep there on the seaport, then hangout the next day in the city. But laurent made it different. He didn't get in the city & drove along the coast. That was horrible! i really hate the spanish seashore. It's nothing but commercial centers & houses, you know, those huge buildings they make to pack tourists... hmm, i should say buildings, multiple housing. Really, really ugly! All new, all cracking shit! i didn't even know where he wanted to go. He either! ahah!! So we ended up in some mountains. Quite the usual landscape. After having dinner on a part of a mountain with view on a huge city, we drove to find a place to sleep. That was horrible. No path, no place to stop, except behind a building. Then we found those fields of clementines. A real hell! After arguing, he took us to marbella. A beach, we found a parking spot, that of a restaurant. Since it was 1 am, we found it empty We slept there & the next morning, the dogs had some fun in the sand, then we went to gibraltar. That was another place i wanted to spend some time. So we first stopped in la linea de la conception, then crossed the border to go to gibraltar (it is a bristish colony). The city is pretty, & once you reach the end of the coast, you have a great view on africa. It is amazing to see this other continent as if the other side of the road. IT was sunny & warm. Then we went back to the city & had a drive through it. After a few hours in there, we went back to
la linea de la conception. We found a nice hotel there, with view on a beach. Such a long time i hadn't been in a hotel! It was right before the beach. We found a part that was empty & had dinner there. We started arguing again... happy birfday pel!
The next morning was quite a surprise for me. December the 1st will stay in my mind forever i think. i woke up early morning, then went on the beach... there, i saw the most amazing thing ever! i was starring at the sea, then i noticed something red over one of the boats. i was wondering what it could be... guess what: THE SUN!! It was just completely RED!!! Like a flag or something. Then it reached a cloud, slowly passing through, & it turned orange. Ahah, like a magician would take out a rabbit from hir hat... Amazing, fantastic, magical! My vocabulary is not consistent enough to describe it!
Taking the dogs on the beach, i found a seagull lying in the sand. Well, to tell the truth, gyzmo first found hir. i did n ot dare catching hir right on, because of the strength of the beack, you know, i didn't want to get a finger cut! laurent joined us & i told him about the bird, i definitely wanted to take hir to a vet. So laurent got the courage to catch hir & put hir on my knees in the van. When we got there, we got the wonderful surprise that vets in spain are directly connected to the animal protection. So when someone brings them a hurt non human, they call the animal protection, then someone takes the non human! So we left this bird at the vet. We then went back to the beach & planned to go to the southest part of spain. We drove there, then... that was enough! i couldn't stand being there & arguying & all! So i asked laurent to head up back to paris. My sugar was low, i was tired of eating chemical fruit... i decided i wouldn't eat before paris. So the next 2 days were about driving again! We stopped in granada for one night, then zaragoza the next night. i had an early walk in both cities.
So the second day, we went through mountains to reach andorra. We needed to get a few things there. The taxes are very low, so it is worth buying whatever you need there. Spain is already cheaper then france, but andorra is more cheaper! We decided we would go back to perpignan, then laurent told me he couldn't drive anymore, he was too tired & wouldn't get back to paris the next day. i so much needed to get back home. He said i could still take the train the next morning... i hesitated, & after a walk in perpignan, i decided to stay with him there. He spent the day eating while watching tv. He asked me to stay with him, but i just didn't get the point of staying there doing nothing or watching him eating & watching tv... am i so wrong? Anyway, i decided to take the train early morning with nanny, on the 5th. i got back home around 1pm, went back home, then went grocery for nanny & i. i was so exhausted! My face was that of a living dead. So after cooking for nanny, i lyed down on the floor -my bed!- & fell asleep... it was not even 5pm. & i slept until 4am! When i woke up, my face looked rested. i felt a bit better & went for a walk wwith nanny. She had a good time, walking at night in paris is great! Then, i went to the swimming pool. After a month & a half... i can hardly tell how good it felt! The swimming pool was busy, but ok. i told a little about my trip to some of my friends there. It was nice to see them again. i talked to the housekeeper this morning. She was happy to see me again. Alain (a raw vegan friend) was excited to see me again, dominique told me he had been missing me so much all that time
So here is the end of my story... a long time, a lot of bad things. i'm so sad things didn't work out with laurent, but i'm so used to travel alone, i guess this is the reason why i cannot deal with being with someone 24/7. i cannot tell, but please my dear friends, next time i'm telling you i'm travelling with someone, just slap me in the face!
philippe, i'm very sorry i didn't get the chance to visit you, i would have loved to! But i might travel through france some time in the future, so, being by myself, i'll be able to come to see you!!
Pariss is grey, it's raining, & i have no idea what my life will be like next.
i guess i'll take nanny back to my mother's house, for the life in the city is not much fun for her. i so much love her & cannot imagine keeping her in the grey paris. i have no more energy, no more desires... i don't even feel like traveling again, but then, i just don't feel like being in paris anymore. i'm completely lost! Those of you who know me well, know this is not me. Please my dear friends, if you have any advice, tell me... i just have no more goals, nothing is left from the past & there is no perspective of any future... No place i want to go to, no place i want to be at... just nothing!
i hope you enjoy seeing all those pix i made. i hope to have your thoughts on it. Even though this trip was a nightmare, there were some good times, but other then this castle in the clouds, there is no place that thrilled me, no place i would have stayed forever... nothing left... i dunno...

be well & in peace.

Green Up Your Power

We've discussed a number of ways to reduce your electricity and gas bills through conservation measures. For low costs and shorter payback periods, efficiency enhancements are almost always the way to go.

You can take greening your power consumption up another notch, though, by purchasing, or even generating, clean renewable energy. Depending on where you live, you may have several options.

Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) are available to anyone, anywhere. Credits can be a little difficult to wrap your head around: essentially, you're purchasing the environmental benefit created by renewable electricity generation. As we note in the Green Life Guide, most buyers of renewable energy credits do so to "offset" the environmental impact of their own power use, which is likely generated from coal or natural gas.

Green Power Programs allow you to buy power generated from renewable sources such as solar power and wind (though many utilities "green" the power by purchasing RECs). The Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy division has a list of utilities throughout the US that offer such programs.

Renewable Energy Systems are available for purchase, of course. This represents a major investment for a home or building owner, but with tax incentives offered by the federal and state governments, you may find that your payback period on such a system is shorter than you imagined... and after that point, you're getting virtually free electricity. Renewable systems have to be evaluated on a number of criteria, including your geographic location, and the amount of power your want to generate. You also need to decide if you want to stay connected to the electrical grid. Your choices include solar, wind and geothermal systems.

Your Action for Today:
Examine Your Clean Power Options

If you're in an apartment or other living space without available land, you probably do have a balcony or patio where you can put some pots or other containers. Home owners and house renters generally have more versatility. The main feature needed: lots of sunlight. If your soil's not in the best condition, don't worry - there are ways to fix it.

Examine the options listed above to see if there is a renewable power option that's right for you. You'll probably also want to check the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) to find out if you qualify for tax benefits tied to investment in renewable energy or efficiency upgrades. Record what you find in your Green Journal.

Finally, keep an eye on Green Options: coming soon, we'll be providing tools that will help your further investigate your clean energy options.

Tomorrow: Celebrate the "Greener You"

Sincerely,

Green Options

Gardening: The Most Local of Foods

We've discussed a number of ways to green your eating by incorporating more local and organic foods into your diet. If you really want fresh, eco-friendly food, though, it's hard to beat growing it yourself. Whether its vegetables from a backyard garden, or herbs from a kitchen windowsill, serving food that you've grown yourself can't be beat for freshness, taste, and, of course, the pride you feel!

The section of the Green Life Guide devoted to organic gardening lays out the basic practices of growing your own food the natural way: no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. For a genuine wealth of information on how to put these practices to work a t home, check out Journey to Forever's organic gardening site. Whether you want to grow vegetables in the back yard or on an apartment balcony, they've got all the tips you need for square-foot gardening, container gardening, composting (which we 've already discussed), and other practices.

Your Action for Today:
Choose a Spot to Start a Garden

If you're in an apartment or other living space without available land, you probably do have a balcony or patio where you can put some pots or other containers. Home owners and house renters generally have more versatility. The main feature needed: lots of sunlight. If your soil's not in the best condition, don't worry - there are ways to fix it.

Gardening takes time and effort, but the rewards are well worth it. Return to your Green Journal as you make progress with your garden, whether in choosing a location, preparing it, planting, or harvesting. And don't forget to share the recipes you use to prepare that great food!

Tomorrow: Buying and/or generating green power

Make Your House a Green Home!

Up to this point, we've focused on the most basic features of your living space: those elements designed to keep you protected from the elements and comfortable. The places where we live, though, are more than shelter: they're also a reflection of ourselves. Now that you're in the process of greening your life, you'll want to choose furnishings, wall coverings, window treatments and other items that mirror your commitment to living well while living green.

You'll want to think about (and ask about) the following elements when choosing home decor:

Materials: Decor items often include a range of materials: wood, cloth, and metal are among the most common, In each case, find out what you can about:

  1. The source of these materials (i.e., Is the wood from a sustainably managed forest? Is cloth made from eco-friendly fibers like organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo.
  2. The amount of reused recycled materials (reclaimed wood from a variety of sources is very popular), and the amount of material that can be reused or recycled.

Durability: Quite simply, are the items made to last? Are they things that you could resell or give away, rather than throw away, if you decided you wanted to go for a different look?

Chemicals: What kinds of finishes and treatments are used on the materials? Will they offgas toxic fumes into the air in your home?

Your Action for Today:
Go Browsing for Green Furnishings and Decorative Items

You have lots of choices when it comes to greener decor. EcoBusiness Links has a comprehensive listing of green furniture makers, natural paint manufacturers, sustainable flooring retailers, and more. We've got more information in the Green Life Guide. Of course, you don't necessarily have to go online - you may have stores in your area that sell new green decor, or "vintage" items.

Find something you like? Make note of it in your Green Journal.

Tomorrow: We've got to get ourselves back to the garden...

Green Up Your Gadgets

We've discussed one element of the energy consumption created by electronic devices: standby power. As we all own more electronics these days, we also need to think about the energy they consume while in use, as well as the toxins contained in most devices.

According to ENERGY STAR's podcast series on consumer electronics, the percentage of our home energy use that goes to powering home electronics has more than doubled since 1980, from 5% to 13%. The easiest way to know that you're purchasing electronics that rate highly in terms of energy efficiency is to look for the ENERGY STAR label. The government programs rates most common electronics devices, including televisions, DVD players, home audio equipment and computers.

The other time we need to think about the impact of our electronics on the environment is at the end of their useful life. According to Earth911:

Electronic circuit boards, batteries, and color cathode ray tubes (CRTs) can contain hazardous materials such as lead, mercury and hexavalent chromium. If improperly handled or disposed, these toxins can be released into the environment through landfill leachate or incinerator ash.

Fortunately, electronics recycling services are widely available; some companies, like Dell computers, for instance, will take back and properly dispose of or reuse old equipment. Standards now exist to evaluate the environmental impact of new products: EPEAT, for instance, is a voluntary certification standard that ranks home computers on their environmental attributes.

Your Action for Today:
Find Greener Electronics Options

If you're in the market for a computer, a television, a cell phone, or another electronic device, make sure to take a look at ENERGY STAR's database of products that qualify for its label. EPEAT standards tell you more about other environmental issues, such as recyclability and reduction of toxins.

Note: The Consumer Electronics Association's My Green Electronics site also contains a products database; unfortunately, the site contains no information on the standards used to label a product as "green" except for EPEAT standards for computers.

Baby, You Can Buy a (More Efficient) Car

Really bad Beatles allusion aside, there are more reasons than ever these days to focus on fuel efficiency when shopping for your next car. If gas prices continue moving in the upward direction we've seen over the past few years, "summer driving season" may become a contradiction in terms! By making fuel efficiency a priority when you shop for your next vehicle, you can take a bit of the sting out of gas prices, and also green up your life.

Hybrid-electric vehicles have gotten incredibly popular for their high efficiency (upwards of 60-70 miles/gallon), but they still may be a bit pricey for some buyers (even with the tax credits offered by the federal government). The Green Life Guide points out a variety of more efficient vehicles that are available on today's market, including:

  • High-mileage vehicles - conventional cars that achieve higher-than-average fuel economy. These include the Honda Fit, the Toyota Corolla, and the Hyundai Accent (all manual transmissions, though).
  • Flex-fuel vehicles - cars that can run on multiple fuels such as unleaded gasoline, gasoline-ethanol blends (or gasohol), and natural gas. The cars themselves are fairly widely available; the fuels, unfortunately, aren't.
  • Electric cars - these require no liquid fuel, as they run on rechargeable batteries. Unfortunately, they're also not widely available on the market.

Of course, there's another option for some - do you need to own a car? Could you take advantage of carride-sharing services, or public transportation, or your bike, or your feet, and avoid the costs of insurance, gas and maintenance completely? Not owning a car is always an option... and

Your Action for Today:
Look at Greener Car Options

You may not be in the market for a car right now, but it's certainly not too soon to start looking at your greener vehicle options. Some sources you might want to check:

  • The Green Life Guide's "Automobiles" section
  • The EPA's list of "Highest and Lowest Overall Fuel Economy" vehicles
  • FuelEconomy.gov's tool for comparing hybrid and non-hybrid cars and models

Find anything interesting? Write it down in your Green Journal.

The Last Item on Your Audit: Maintaining Your Furnace/Air Conditioning

Throughout these last few lessons, we've mentioned several times that heating (and cooling) make up the largest part of home energy use on average. After checking for air leaks, and making sure that you've got proper insulation levels, the last thing you want to do is check your heating and cooling equipment to make sure it's running at optimal efficiency.

The Depart of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy division suggests the following steps in keeping the furnace and air conditioning running well:

  1. If you have a forced air furnace, check the filters monthly, and replace when clogged. Permanent filters are a greener option: instead of throwing them away, rinse out the gunk, and put them back in.
  2. Have a professional inspect your equipment annually.
  3. Check your ductwork for dirt streaks, especially near seams. These indicate air leaks, and they should be sealed with a duct mastic.
  4. Insulate any ducts or pipes that travel through unheated spaces. An insulation R-Value of 6 is the recommended minimum.
  5. Finally, if your equipment is more than 15 years old, you should consider replacing it. A new unit is certain to be more energy-efficient, especially if your existing furnace or air conditioner is in poor condition.

Your Action for Today:
Schedule Your Heating/Cooling Equipment Maintenance

Maintaining your heating and cooling equipment is largely a matter of making a schedule for routine maintenance, much like with your car. So, plan it out:

  • Pick a day of the month to check filters, and check for leaks.
  • Pick a month each year to schedule a service call from a professional.
  • Periodically, check the shape of the insulation on ducts and pipes.

Record the schedule you create in your Green Journal.
