Photograph by Robert Zingg Photo in the News: New Lemur Species Discovered
August 9, 2005—You’re a good man, Microcebus lehilahytsara —quite literally. The German and Madagascan scientists who discovered the new lemur species named it for U.S. lemur expert Steve Goodman (”lehilahytsara” is Malagasy for ”good man”). They announced the discovery of this and another new lemur species (not pictured) today.
Surprisingly, the scientists discovered Microcebus lehilhytsara not in some shrouded jungle but in one of the most studied rain forests on the African island of Madagascar. Then agai ... read more

RE: My blog regarding homemade cleaning products: http://curezone.com/blogs/m.asp?f=309&i=87
First, let me state that I am very chemically sensitive.
I use organic apple cider vinegar to kill mold in my house. I even use it in home-made salad dressing. I seem to tolerate it very well. As for soap, I use scent-free, biodegradable dishwashing liquid (I prefer Seventh Generation or Planet brands) to clean my house. I use Bon Ami as the "scrubber". I stated all of this in my blog.

12 Aug 2005
For a people as addicted to order as the Germans, this country is floundering in uncertainty. The economy has sputtered to a post-World War II record 5 million unemployed. (The)only thing most Germans are sure about right now is the dire need to abandon nuclear power. Tough policie ... read more

- Homemade Cleaning Supplies 8 y
Why make your own? As alternatives to most commercial cleaning products, these homemade ones don’t cause indoor air pollution in your home, are less likely to harm the environment, and can be less expensive than commercial products.
I use Bon Ami or baking soda as the scrubber. Bon Ami is made out of calcium carbonate and is a biodegradable detergent containing no phosphates, chlorine, perfume or dye. I’ve been using it for years as an alternative to Ajax (chlorinated). It is readily found in the cleanser section of grocery stores.
Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, a natura ... read more

- Otters Endangered 8 y
Suffering population declines that are baffling scientists, the sea otters of southwest Alaska are being designated a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act, which entitles the furry marine mammals to stronger federal protections. Government biologists plan to investigate why their numbers have plummeted from tens of thousands in the late 1980s to less than 9,000 today. Hungry orcas alone probably don’t account for the steep population decline, say many scientists, and typical factors like disease and starvation don’t fully explain it either. "The loss of sea otters is an ... read more

War of the Weed
by Joe Robinson, Times staff writer
FAMED for the biggest trees in the world, Sequoia National Park is now No. 1 in another flora department: marijuana growing, with more land carved up by pot growers than any other park.
Parts of Sequoia, including the Kaweah River drainage and areas off Mineral King Road, are no-go zones for visitors and park rangers during the April-to-October growing season, when drug lords cultivate pot on an agribusiness-scale fit for the Central Valley.
”It’s so big that we have to focus our resources on one ... read more
- California's Sequoia National Park has become prime cropland for armed pot growers who colonize isolated wilderness areas, causing massive ecological damage. Rangers and law enforcement say federal authorities and environmental groups aren't taking the problem seriously enough.
