Renewable energy policy (RE) – (REP) is important to the future of the planet, and for all the inhabitants, including mankind. With the current Middle East tensions creating another surge in oil price speculation, the prices of gas and other oil related products also rise, including food. In fact, according to CNN, Wall Street greed fueling high gas prices, as the laws of supply and demand don’t apply to the price of oil. Demand in the U.S. today is at the lowest level since 1997.

Most recently, at Obama’s 2012 State of the Union Address Energy, he laid out a half dozen energy proposals, however, most of the policies he announced were either previously announced, stand little chance of passing through congress, or not that big of a deal. According to Jose Valera, a Houston based lawyer in the energy practice at the global law firm Mayer Brown, “It’s a smart, well balanced, welcome policy, and everybody is a winner.”

While the traditional fossil fuels will still play an important role in the future while we transition to renewables, in technologies like wind and solar, Obama called for extending tax credits that basically give these firms a 30% subsidy and also called for the federal government to allow renewable projects on its land.

Oil Exploration Discoveries Made By Exxon In Deepwater Gulf 3 new wells could produce 700 million barrels of oil.

According to Reuters, two oil exploration discoveries Exxon Mobil Corp have been made in the Deepwater Gulf. The two new large oil discoveries, as well as a natural gas discovery in the Gulf of Mexico deepwaters, highlights the importance of the deepwater area of the Gulf of Mexico’s importance to U.S. crude oil output. Exxon reported that the newly discovered wells could produce approximately 700 million barrels of oil equivalent, or BOE. According to Houston, Texas based Triple Double Advisors analyst John White, “Seven hundred million barrels doesn’t happen very often, that’s a lot of oil.” The newly discovered wells are located in the Keathley Canyon at a depth of roughly 7,000 feet, and is 250 miles southwest of New Orleans. Exxon has yet to finish its development plan, and stated that more drilling will be necessary to further gauge how much oil is in the new reservoir. This won’t give us a break at the gas pumps anytime soon, as normal production could still be years away.

Malcolm Jolley: Where Does Your Thanksgiving Dinner Come From?

Thanksgiving began as a Christian holiday, famously exported by Plymouth Puritans to our side of the Atlantic, where it stuck big time. The idea of the “holy day” was to thank God for the bounty of the harvest, a more or less universal sentiment among religions since the dawn of written history and (I guess) even before then.

This tradition surely remains, among all kinds of believers of all kinds of things. But there’s also a secular aspect to Thanksgiving as we practice it in Canada (and as our American cousins do a little later in the fall). It’s a kind of general thanks for our relatively sweet position in the world. We count our blessings and marvel how much better things are here than in the Horn of Africa or Haiti or, well, pretty much anywhere. This is all very good, but I’d like to bring the giving of thanks back home. This year, let’s thank the women and men who actually grow or raise the food that we put on the table on Monday.

I suppose I should give thanks right away, since one of the perks of my job as a food writer is to meet farmers all the time. And I’m doubly blessed, because many of the stores (or more obviously farmers’ markets) I shop at carry the meat or animals that come from farms I have visited across the province of Ontario. I swear these items taste better to me for having seen the soil on which they sprung. Likewise, when I see the name of a farm cited on a menu, like Vicky’s Veggies in Prince Edward County or Soiled Reputation in Perth County, I am inclined to order those things, if for no other reason than I’ve met the folks with the dirt under their fingernails and know they made this food as much out of love as for profit. (Actually, I am very sure that they make our food for much, much, much more for love than barely breaking even.)

Many of us find that we are too busy and need a time out from our busy lives. For those who crave solitude, finding the time to experience it can be challenging.

How to Keep Your Kids Away from Toxic Art Supplies

How to Keep Your Kids Away from Toxic Art Supplies

Just how do you keep your kids away from toxic art supplies, and because manufacturers of these supplies are not required to list ingredients on their products, it’s hard for the consumer to know what is toxic and what isn’t. The “non-toxic” label can’t necessarily be trusted. For example, certain brands of crayons labeled “non-toxic” were found to contain asbestos in 2000 (asbestos was part of the talc used by the manufacturers as a strengthener). Here are some of the common art supplies used by children and the possible toxins in them.

1. Paint

Powdered tempura paint should not be used, because it can be easily inhaled and can contain toxic pigments such as cadmium and titanium. If you already have powdered tempura paint, mix it with water ahead of time using a dust mask, and let the children use it after it’s been mixed. Otherwise, choose children’s liquid paints that are water-based. Watercolors are another non-toxic choice. Avoid oil-based paints which can contain toxic solvents. Read more…
