The Uses for Wood You Would Never Have Dreamed Of - By Inventwood

One product is MettleWood TM .   This is wood that has been condensed to make it extremely strong and tough.   It is light-weight, moisture resistant, and can be shaped.   It may be less expensive in time while also being sustainable and biodegradable. A second product is Insulating Wood . InventWood TM boasts that their product is a great thermal insulator and insulates against sudden shocks or force.  It may also be shaped according to needs and maybe be less expensive over time.  Like MettleWood, it is sustainable and biodegradable. Picture from InventWood TM   The third product is Transparent Wood . Yes, that’s transparent wood.  This product will likely be the next windows.  As it sounds, it is clear, can cha

Over 50 Water Protectors Walk Onto Line 3 Pipeline Easement, Two Lock Themselves To An Excavator Laying Pipe

Over 50 Water Protectors walk onto Line 3 Pipeline easement, two lock themselves to an excavator laying pipe [Press Release via Martin Keller] February 2, 2021 (FOND DU LAC) On Tuesday afternoon, two water protectors locked themselves to an excavator laying pipe on an Enbridge worksite near Cloquet, MN. They marched onto the easement with over 50 activists, shutting down construction on the Line 3 tar sands pipeline for much of the work day.  The group, led by Anishinaabe warriors from Camp Migizi , then gathered at a sacred site, which has been desecrated by the pipeline’s construction, to pray.  In the words of one of the people who locked themselves to the construction equipment, Charles King, “Our state laws are not working in the public interest and for the public good. We are endangering future generations… and that’s got to stop.” The other water protector locked to the excavator, a Fond Du Lac band member, declined to comment, saying that their actions speak louder than their w

Is Solar Worth It?

Is Solar Worth It?   Not without rebates and SREC.  Taxpayers pay a huge amount towards each installation. The Real Cost of Wind and Solar The Hidden Costs of Maintenance After your initial investment, there are additional costs and time involved that few ever mention.  This includes: Unless automated, you will have to tilt the panels twice a year to account for the change in the location of the sun Panels must be kept clean to maintain efficiency:  bird droppings, dust, dirt, leaves, and pollen can lower efficiency If it snows, the panels must be cleared to work at all.  This is every time it snows. If you are off the grid, you will need a generator to cover those time you haven't generated enough power.    At the minimum, the generator will need an oil change and new filter each year.  This will likely take 30 to 45 minutes, and cost $50-60 for synthetic oil.  You may also need distilled water and coolant depending on your system. If you are the grid you will also need power stor

High Debt Leads To Slow Economic Growth

  High Debt Leads to Slow Economic Growth Carmen Reinhart (University of Maryland) and Kenneth S. Rogoff (Harvard University) researched and tabulated the national debt and economic growth in 20 advanced economies.  The authors used 2,000+ data points from over 200 years finding that “high debt/GDP levels (90 percent and above) are associated with notably lower growth outcomes.”  Source:  American Economic Review, 2010.  Relevantly, U.S. federal debt surpassed 90% of GDP in 2010 and currently 107% of GDP (www.usdebtclock.org). Thomas Herndon, Michael Ash, and Robert Pollin [HAP] of the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, wrote a similar paper on debt levels and GDP.  HAP asserts that the Reinhart and Rogoff [RR] paper suffers from “coding errors, selective exclusion of available data, and unconventional weighting of summary statistics,” which “lead to serious errors that inaccurately represent the relationship between public debt and GD

Raising Minimum Wages Results In More Unemployment

Raising Minimum Wages Results In More Unemployment In a truly free market, the right wage is found where the demand for labor (D1) intersects with the supply of labor (S1).  The supply is simply the number of individuals (Quantity = q1) willing to work for the wage (W1) provided.  The demand is simply the number of employees businesses are willing to hire at a particular wage.  On a graph this is depicted as the intersection where the labor supply (S1) and labor demand (D1) lines intersect. Raising the minimum wage results in an influx of workers and shifts the supply line left (S2).  It also results in a leftward shift of the demand for labor (D2), as employers are unwilling to hire and/or retain the same number of employees at the higher wage.  The raise increases the number of workers willing to work than before, but the demand for labor decreases from q1 to q2 resulting in greater unemployment numbers. The reasoning for this shift is simple.  The employer, generally having small pr

Nancy Pelosi Speech - House Debates 2nd Trump Impeachment

Jan 13, 2021 Nancy Pelosi Speech - House Debates 2nd Trump Impeachment Blogger M. Pirila used underlining to emphasize relevant passages.  His comments are in brackets. Nancy Pelosi: Thank you, Madam speaker. I thank the gentleman for yielding and for his leadership. Madam speaker, in his annual we’ll address to our predecessors in Congress in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln spoke of the duty of the Patriot in an hour of decisive crisis for the American people. “Fellow citizens,” he said, “We cannot escape history. We will be remembered in spite of ourselves. No personal significance or insignificance can spare one or another of us. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor, or dishonor, to the latest generation. Even we here,” he said, “hold the power and bear the responsibility.” In the Bible, St. Paul wrote, “Think on these things.” We must think on what Lincoln told us. We even here, even us here, hold the power and bear the responsibility. We, you and I, ho

In His Executive Order To Tackle The Climate Crisis, President Biden Shows His Intent To Kill Fossil Fuels

Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis Blogger Marvin Pirila added bold print and underlines to emphasize important aspects of this executive order.  His comments are in brackets. JANUARY 20, 2021 • PRESIDENTIAL ACTIONS By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1.  Policy.  Our Nation has an abiding commitment to empower our workers and communities; promote and protect our public health and the environment; and conserve our national treasures and monuments, places that secure our national memory.  Where the Federal Government has failed to meet that commitment in the past, it must advance environmental justice.  In carrying out this charge, the Federal Government must be guided by the best science and be protected by processes that ensure the integrity of Federal decision-making.  It is, therefore, the po

Biden's Assault On Fossil Fuels Is Underway

The assault on the U.S. use of fossil fuels began immediately upon Joe Biden's inauguration.  The negative impact on jobs and consumer products/utilities/fuel prices will soon be felt by all Americans. President Biden plans to deny permits for new fracking on federal land.  While most fracking takes place on private land, about 12% of U.S. natural gas production and nearly a quarter of U.S. oil production comes from federal lands, according to a 2020 study from the American Petroleum Institute, an energy industry group.  The left will claim this isn't significant, yet it it.  Coupled with his other actions gas prices are going to surge upward and our economy will be significantly harmed. 1/20/21 :  President Biden rejoins the Paris Climate Accord.  H is administration seeks to drive greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.   Spoiler alert, it isn't going to happen.  When gas prices have risen considerably the pushback will occur.  The world isn't all rainbows and f

Abortion - The Democrat Supported Genocide

Statement from President Biden and Vice President Harris on the 48th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade JANUARY 22, 2021 • STATEMENTS AND RELEASES "Today marks the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade.   "In the past four years, reproductive health, including the right to choose, has been under relentless and extreme attack.  We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care – including reproductive health care – regardless of income, race, zip code, health insurance status, or immigration status."  [Yes, President Donald Trump recognized the life of a baby at conception and their inalienable rights under the U.S. Constitution. The Biden-Harris administration is pro-abortion and working quickly to increase rights to abortion.  And Biden calls himself a Catholic?] "The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to codifying Roe v. Wade and appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe.  We are also comm

LinkedIn Removes A Contrasting Opinion To President Biden's First Day Actions

LinkedIn removed my following comment because it violates their policy on bullying and harassment.  Read it and tell me that it's bullying and harassment.  I can't believe the candy-ass snowflakes that can't handle my response. I never found much use in this site, but now that only the left can speak, what good is it? First, the post I responded to: Renee Ernst 3rd Producer, Social Publishing at CNN New York City Metropolitan Area Renee has a account "With the stroke of a pen, President Biden has halted funding for the construction of former President Trump's border wall, reversed Trump's travel ban targeting largely Muslim countries and embraced progressive policies on the environment and diversity that Trump spent four years blocking. Biden also reversed several of Trump's attempts to withdraw from international agreements, beginning the process of rejoining the Paris climate accord and halting the United States' departure from the World Health Organi

Dissecting Joe Biden's Inauguration Speech

Today's remarks from Joe Biden's inauguration speech. January 20, 2021 " So now on this hallowed ground where just a few days ago violence sought to shake the capital’s very foundation. We come together as one nation, under God, indivisible, to carry out the peaceful transfer of power as we have for more than two centuries."   Not quite like the one President Trump received in 2016 when the Obama-Biden administration spied on him, concocted a fake Russian Collusion story, and unmasked different members of his team.  I wouldn't call that peaceful or well intentioned.  The next four years the Democrats relentlessly hounded Trump on every conjured up thing they could.  We they call for unity now, it is sickening.  Where in the last 4 1/2 years, did you rest from your senseless attacks on the President and his followers?  Where were you on the BLM/Antifa crime spree?  The censorship of Big Tech?  The disinformation of the media? "I’ve just taken a sacred oath eac

The Treasonous Democrat Party Unmasked

The treasonous Democrat Party is finally unmasked   For 2 1/2 years the Democrats perpetuated the greatest hoax on the citizens of the U.S. and now their name is permanently etched in the history books for keeping to conformed, puppet-like party duty.  When one says something, the rest parrot it like a sick bird.  It's no wonder Democrats and their cronies (including the party bought media - CNN, MSNBC, NBC, etc.) were so hell-bent on impeaching Donald Trump.  They just couldn't have their power diluted or their egregious acts against Americans and the Constitution known.  The sheep couldn't know what you had done in the name of keeping your crony powers in place.  Thank God, President Trump got elected and withstood your phony impeachment trials.  What a waste of our (taxpayer) money (Mueller, lawsuits, etc.).  When it was all opened to public view, it showed no evidence of collusion.  None.  You have become so much more than a baby killing Socialist party, you are against
