Texas Bill Bans Sustainability Program, Based On A Glenn Beck Conspiracy Theory

Wednesday, 22 April 2015 10:54


Two Texas lawmakers have proposed a pair of bills that would prevent the state from funding programs which attempt to implement the ideas of Agenda 21, a non-binding and voluntary United Nations plan for sustainable development signed by the United States and 178 other governments in 1992. According to the Texas Tribune, the bills proposed by Republican state lawmakers Rep. Molly White and Sen. Bob Hall would prohibit funds from states, counties, and public universities from going to organizations “accredited by the United Nations to implement a policy that originated in the Agenda 21 plan.” The Agenda 21 plan — signed by President George H. W. Bush — includes recommendations to conserve public lands, rein in air pollution, build more sustainable cities, combat poverty, and strengthen the voices of women, indigenous groups, and farmers.

Ask 10 different people what jobs you could get protecting water and you'll probably get 11 different titles that are as varied as our lakes and rivers. This is a good time for water-related jobs because our global population is growing and, let’s face it, with all that growth comes impacts to water. We all need clean, abundant water to survive - and we need people to ensure its protection and management. Unfortunately, with population growth there will be competition for water between different large-scale users like farmers and power plants. But that competition will also bring job opportunities, from negotiating water leases to advocating for clean, safe water to dealing with polluted water sources.

There is a place for everyone who wants to work in water, and at all levels. Read on and let’s see if there’s a place for you in the water protection biz:

Getting Rid of Mice Naturally...

Thursday, 23 April 2015 15:57


Do you have a very lazy cat? If you've been finding evidence of mice in your cupboard and amongst the pots and pans, read on. Apparently mice don't like strong smells. Try sprinkling some peppermint essential oil in the drawers and cupboards affected. First, cleaned them out, and vacuum up any mouse droppings. Rinse the affected areas with soapy water. Then sprinkled the oil. Try soaking cotton balls in the oil, and placing them in various spots.  The kitchen will definitely smell minty fresh! Be sure that there is nothing that the little pests can get into. All foods and spices should be in mason jars or containers. Larger things should be moved to areas that they can't get into.
