39 Ways to Live A Beautiful Life (westcoastjan)

Read. Preferably something that provokes you, lifts you, challenges you, entertains you, inspires you or encourages you. But if you are not in the mood for any of that, read Facebook statuses. They'll do in a pinch.

Chalking the plank: Judge won't allow bank protester to claim first amendment rights (Arthur Robey)

The trial, stated the judge, should only focus on whether or not Olson is guilty of vandalism and not what his motivations behind the vandalism were. Shore cited the case, Mackinney v. Nielsen 69 F.3d 1002 (9th Cir.1995), where a man was acquitted after a court ruled that use of chalk was not considered vandalism. The law was later changed to define vandalism as defacement "with graffiti or other inscribed material."

Gold & Silver – Purely A Mental Game Right Now. Do Not Blink. (Taki T.)

Paper gold has no value, at least to those who own it. Well, maybe they believe it has value, but when the time comes to cash in the chits, the holders of paper gold and silver will have their belief system turned upside down. Everyone knows the paper market dwarfs to physical market, and until the paper market shrinks to a level more on par with the physical, the unwinding of huge paper longs will continue.

On October 3, 2011, Olson first appeared outside of a Bank of America branch in San Diego, along with a homemade sign. Eight days later Olson and his partner, Stephen Daniels, during preparations for National Bank Transfer Day, the two were confronted by Darell Freeman, the Vice President of Bank of America’s Global Corporate Security.

Getting Japan To Spend (jdargis)

Reversing a 15-year-long slide in prices, which Mr. Abe has singled out as both a cause and a symptom of waning profits, wages and consumption, is a tougher order. For companies to feel confident enough to start raising prices, Japan’s consumers have to start spending again, and data confirming that trend is still mixed.

Economists Have A One-Page Solution To Climate Change (jdargis)

This is why economists love a carbon tax: One change to the tax code and the entire economy shifts to reduce carbon emissions. No complicated regulations. No rules for what kind of gas mileage cars have to get or what specific fraction of electricity has to come from wind or solar or renewables. That's by and large the way we do it now.

Reilly says the current web of rules is a more complicated and more expensive way of getting the same outcome as a carbon tax. The current system "pretty much is one of the worst ways we could do it," he says.

Earthship Village Ecologies (Wendy SD)

As the economy crashed in late 2008, we realized that our product - a fully sustainable carbon zero home - is the product of this age; but it must now be delivered to the people of the world in a much more affordable way than conventional homes. It must also be acquired and operate independent of this thing called economy. By its very nature it leans in the direction of being free from the economy in terms of operation but to acquire it is another issue, in most cases still dependent on the economy.

Calgary Floods Spotlight Cities' Costly Failure To Plan For Climate Change (westcoastjan)

"We go from disaster to disaster … being sure that we protect a life so people are protected and then finding the best way how we pay for that," said Slobodan Simonovic, author of Floods in a Changing Climate: Risk Management. "But what we are doing is we are simply reacting to that, paying for that. We are not investing in the reduction or minimization of the future."
