“As a former homicide commander, I am stunned that no autopsy was ordered for Justice Scalia.”
“You have a Supreme Court Justice who died, not in attendance of a physician. You have a non-homicide trained US Marshal tell the justice of peace that no foul play was observed. You have a justice of the peace pronounce death while not being on the scene and without any medical training opining that the justice died of a heart attack. What medical proof exists of a myocardial Infarction? Why not a cerebral hemorrhage?”
“How can the Marshal say, without a thorough post mortem, that he was not injected with an illegal substance that would simulate a heart attack…”
“Did the US Marshal check for petechial hemorrhage in his eyes or under his lips that would have suggested suffocation? Did the US Marshal smell his breath for any unusual odor that might suggest poisoning? My gut tells me there is something fishy going on in Texas.” [Bold Emphasis Added]

John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shares with you the No Till Farming 102 Workshop that took place at the 2016 Eco Farm Conference where Paul Kaiser is able to make $100,000 gross per acre per year on on his farm.
In this episode, you will learn the benefits of using No Till Farming which includes significantly higher income per acre than other types of farming, regenerating the soil, capturing more carbon in the soil, creating year round jobs, producing high quality food, encouraging local flora and fauna.
First, John will share how he uses no-till farming techniques in his no-till garden at home.
Next, Paul, will share important information on why every farm should start doing no-till farming, its benefits and how the US government even promotes no-till farming as the best way to farm to conserve and restore the farm land in the USA. You will discover why Soil Organic Matter continues to decrease in the USA and why current agriculture systems are destroying the soil. You will learn about studies that support this information. You will discover why tilling is so bad for your soil, and you should never do it. You will discover the best soil management strategies to restore and build the soil to levels even BETTER than they were before we starting farming the land. You will also discover how to start a no-till farming field, as well as how to maintain it.
Next, John will share the most important slides from the No Till Farming Workship. You will discover some of the most important of a no-till farming operation, including how 3 people can replant and turn over 3 garden beds in 1 hour. You will also discover why transplants are used instead of starting seeds and why it is so important to start from transplants. Next, you will learn the tools that are used to do no-till farming. You will learn the best materials to build a long lasting, no-snag garden benches. You will discover the seed starting mixture and about different types of compost that is used in this notill farming system. You will discover the importance of diversity of growing different types of plants, natives, pollinator crops, hedgerows, and more in a no-till farming system. You will also learn how no till farming is MORE profitable than conventional and even standard organic agriculture.
Finally you will discover how notill farming done in a proper manor is the parmount of environmental sustainability, can help to sequester carbon in the soil, provide economic prosperity, as well as be social just and responsible. In the end, you will learn that No Till Farming is one of the best farming techniques that can help to solve the food crisis, economic crisis and soil crisis that is the word is currently experiencing today.
This is a particularly intriguing read by Dr. Farrell, which outlines one of the many options that can be taken for individuals, teachers, etc. to create a better education system than the one that we currently have.
If we have no education, we have nothing. As the foundation for everything we know, its important that we remain knowledgeable of what’s taking place, but also what’s possible within our reality. This piece by Farrell illustrates exactly that.

Finally, there’s some good news about American education, or is there? We’ll get back to that in a moment. This story was shared with me by Mr. R.B., and I have to pass it along to you because it is genuinely good news:
Now, when one reads this article, there is the usual and expected bow to Common Core:
For a subject that has been around almost as long as civilization itself, there remains a surprising degree of contention among experts about how best to teach math. Fiery battles have been waged for decades over what gets taught, in what order, why, and how. Broadly speaking, there have been two opposing camps. On one side are those who favor conceptual knowledge—understanding how math relates to the world—over rote memorization and what they call “drill and kill.” (Some well-respected math-instruction gurus say that memorizing anything in math is counterproductive and stifles the love of learning.) On the other side are those who say memorization of multiplication tables and the like is necessary for efficient computation. They say teaching students the rules and procedures that govern math forms the bedrock of good instruction and sophisticated mathematical thinking. They bristle at the phrase drill and kill and prefer to call it simply “practice.”
The Common Core State Standards Initiative walks a narrow path through that minefield, calling for teachers to place equal importance on “mathematical understanding” and “procedural skills.” It’s too early to know what effect the initiative will have. To be sure, though, most students today aren’t learning much math: Only 40 percent of fourth-graders and 33 percent of eighth-graders are considered at least “proficient.” On an internationally administered test in 2012, just 9 percent of 15-year-olds in the United States were rated “high scorers” in math, compared with 16 percent in Canada, 17 percent in Germany, 21 percent in Switzerland, 31 percent in South Korea, and 40 percent in Singapore.
But close attention to the article shows something very different. Rather than teaching to a test, the teacher in this instance was directly involved with her students, and allowed them to explore ways to solve a problem. Very little here – at least the way The Atlantic is reporting it – appears to be the stock in trade of what has passed for education in the past decades: teaching to the test.
You’ll note, however, that there’s also an implicit indictment of the whole American system here, and its most recent Common Core faddery, for note the use of “math camps” teaching accelerated mathematics to students who want to learn it, camps existing as a parallel and “extra-curricular” education institution, and you’ll note, the camps are being taught by teachers – real human beings with a passion for the subject – and not a computerized core. Yours truly benefited from such an approach beginning in junior high school, for I was placed in such an accelerated mathematics program, and though I’ve honestly forgotten most of what I learned, the experience itself was invaluable. It fueled a desire to learn other disciplines in depth, music theory, literature, history, and so on.
