Lush video and lucid music from a small Scottish group I sort of know, just released. Imagine a sort of cheerful and melancholy, celtic soundscape...
If you want to see how industry lobbying works... a before lobbying and after lobbying side-by-side on proposed EC environmental measures to make home appliances more repairable and longer lasting.
I've offered this on tumblr for a while now but for everyone on here: if you ask me to I'll look up #activist and #leftist groups in your area that you can join!

Leaves are not generally known for their protein value, but LPC lets one concentrate the protein into a brick and deliver very high-value protein from a potentially highly available source. Allegedly, it also separates the protein from common antinutrients found in leaves, like tannins, oxalates, phytic acid, and saponins. This might help increase absorption of Iron that ends up in the curd, which is often malabsorbed from spinaches and steamed greens.
My challenge will be developing recipes!
