Of course the thought of my red birds running around making a mess, roosting on my couch, scratching the floor, and the manure would be horrible! Believe it or not there are people that keep chickens inside like a dog. They use chicken diapers. I know it&rsquo;s crazy. Anyway, chickens are much more cold-hardy than most people think. I think it is actually cruel to provide heat for your chickens. It doesn&rsquo;t let the chickens become acclimated to the cold properly. They are definitely not meant to be inside.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/88533/how-care-chickens-winter" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/88533/how-care-chickens-winter#comments What Should I Do? care Chickens Shelter water winter http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88533 Fri, 31 Oct 2014 22:01:18 +0000 Phil Williams 88533 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Off the Cuff: Japanese Central Bank Throws Granny Under The Bus http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88532/cuff-japanese-central-bank-throws-granny-under-bus ]]><p style="font-size: 12.7272720336914px;"><span style="font-size: 12.7272720336914px;">This one was so good, we&#39;re making it public! &nbsp;</span></p> <p style="font-size: 12.7272720336914px;">In this week&#39;s&nbsp;<em>Off the Cuff&nbsp;</em>podcast, Chris and Mish&nbsp;Shedlock&nbsp;discuss:</p> <ul style="font-size: 12.7272720336914px;"> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">The expected but shocking Japanese central bank decision</li> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">Increasing central bank desperation</li> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">How central banks&nbsp;transfer wealth from the masses to the few</li> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">The impact on gold and silver prices</li> </ul> <p style="font-size: 12.7272720336914px;"><strong>Summary:</strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;In this podcast Chris and Mish let their guard down and say a few choice words about the actions of central banks that obviously and seriously harm average people all in&nbsp;the service of assuring that banks and governments can continue to operate as they have in the past.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88532/cuff-japanese-central-bank-throws-granny-under-bus" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88532/cuff-japanese-central-bank-throws-granny-under-bus#comments Blog Bank of Japan Japan Markets Mish Shedlock Off The Cuff http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88532 Fri, 31 Oct 2014 19:09:23 +0000 Adam Taggart 88532 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Build a Solar-Powered Water Heater http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/88483/build-solar-powered-water-heater ]]><div id="nrelate_flyout_placeholder"> <p>This is a very simple design for a batch-type solar water heater that uses a thermosiphon loop to move water between a solar thermal collector and a storage barrel.

The deep truth in that statement is that we humans have strongly-held beliefs that color the information we take in an accept. We&#39;re often guilty of recognizing only the data that supports those beliefs while rejecting the rest.</p> <p>For example, today most people place a great deal of faith in the potential for technology to fix whatever predicaments society may face in the future. And they support that view with cherry-picked data, while conveniently overlooking evidence suggesting technology is instead a sword with&nbsp;<em>two</em>&nbsp;edges.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88437/about-shale-oil-miracle%E2%80%A6" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88437/about-shale-oil-miracle%E2%80%A6#comments Blog energy oil oil price petroleum propaganda shale shale oil Wall Street Journal WSJ http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88437 Tue, 28 Oct 2014 12:16:27 +0000 cmartenson 88437 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Off the Cuff: The War On Savers http://www.peakprosperity.com/insider/88401/cuff-war-savers ]]><p>In this week&#39;s&nbsp;<em>Off the Cuff&nbsp;</em>podcast, Chris and John&nbsp;Rubino&nbsp;discuss:</p> <ul> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">The State of Silver <ul> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">Notes from this year&#39;s Silver Summit</li> </ul> </li> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">The War On Savers <ul> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">Further exploration of the Fed&#39;s &#39;financial repression&#39;</li> </ul> </li> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">The Inevitable Market Crash <ul> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">More predictable than ever</li> </ul> </li> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">The Broken American Dream <ul> <li style="line-height: 19.5px;">Out of the reach for most now</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/insider/88401/cuff-war-savers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/insider/88401/cuff-war-savers#comments Insider central banks Fed Federal Reserve financial repression John Rubino money Off The Cuff QE silver http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88401 Sun, 26 Oct 2014 18:58:57 +0000 Adam Taggart 88401 at http://www.peakprosperity.com NASA: Revisiting Our Vulnerabiity To Solar Flares http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/88055/nasa-revisiting-our-vulnerabiity-solar-flares ]]><p>Dr&nbsp;Guhathakurta&nbsp;returns to the podcast this week to discuss a large-scale solar flare that nearly hit Earth back in July of 2012 (a direct hit missed us by about 1 week), as well as to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the warning system we have in place to alert us to such dangers, and the continuing vulnerability our system have to such an event.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/88055/nasa-revisiting-our-vulnerabiity-solar-flares" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/podcast/88055/nasa-revisiting-our-vulnerabiity-solar-flares#comments Podcast CME coronal mass ejections Dr. Lika Guhathakurta EMP NASA solar flare http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88055 Sat, 25 Oct 2014 22:10:54 +0000 Adam Taggart 88055 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Energy Economics - Crash Course Chapter 19 http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88380/energy-economics-crash-course-chapter-19 ]]><p>The central point to this latest video is this: as we&rsquo;ve shown in previous chapters of the Crash Course, our global economy depends on continual growth to function. And not just any kind of growth; but&nbsp;<em>exponential</em>&nbsp;growth.</p> <p>But in order to grow, it must receive an ever-increasing input supply of affordable energy and resources from the natural world. What I&rsquo;m about to show you is a preponderance of data that indicates those inputs will just not be there in the volumes needed to supply the growth that the world economy is counting on.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88380/energy-economics-crash-course-chapter-19" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88380/energy-economics-crash-course-chapter-19#comments Blog economics energy energy cliff EROEI ethanol nuclear energy oil peak oil population shale oil solar tar sands wind energy http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88380 Fri, 24 Oct 2014 23:45:38 +0000 Adam Taggart 88380 at http://www.peakprosperity.com Why Gold Is Undervalued http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88268/why-gold-undervalued ]]><p>Gold has been in a bear market for three years. Technical analysts are asking themselves whether they should call an end to this slump on the basis of the &quot;triple-bottom&quot; recently made at $1180/oz, or if they should be wary of a coming downside break beneath that level. The purpose of this article is to look at the drivers of the gold price and explain why today&#39;s market value is badly reflective of gold&#39;s true worth.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88268/why-gold-undervalued" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88268/why-gold-undervalued#comments Blog Alasdair Macleod China deflation dollar gold inflation money reserve currency Russia http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88268 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 16:31:32 +0000 Alasdair Macleod 88268 at http://www.peakprosperity.com How to Install a Raspberry and Blackberry Trellis http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/88231/how-install-raspberry-and-blackberry-trellis ]]><p>My old raspberry and blackberry trellis was made of green &lsquo;T&rsquo; posts and light gauge green wire. Not particularly attractive, so I decided to install a more professional looking trellis. I just moved my raspberry and blackberry canes up against my fence, so I already had one side of the trellis taken care of. The other side, I decided to install a standard two wire system held up with 4x4 wooden posts. This system works well, looks nice, actually it is hard to even see, and is easy to install.</p> <p><a href="http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/88231/how-install-raspberry-and-blackberry-trellis" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.peakprosperity.com/wsidblog/88231/how-install-raspberry-and-blackberry-trellis#comments What Should I Do? berries blackberry raspberry Trellis http://www.peakprosperity.com/crss/node/88231 Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:47:36 +0000 Phil Williams 88231 at http://www.peakprosperity.com How The Federal Reserve Is Purposely Attacking Savers http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/88227/how-federal-reserve-purposely-attacking-savers ]]><p>There&#39;s something we &#39;regular&#39; citizens wrestle with that the elites never seem to:&nbsp;<em>a sense of moral duty</em>.</p> <div>In a perfect world, we&nbsp;<em>would</em>&nbsp;honor our debts and obligations, every one of us.
