Helena Bottemiller Evich @ Politico: The great nutrient collapse
“Every leaf and every grass blade on earth makes more and more sugars as CO2 levels keep rising,” Loladze said. “We are witnessing the greatest injection of carbohydrates into the biosphere in human history―[an] injection that dilutes other nutrients in our food supply.”

Diana Kwon @ Scientific American: Are Some Psychiatric Disorders a pH Problem?
Multiple studies in the past few decades have found that when people with panic disorders are exposed to air with a higher-than-normal concentration of carbon dioxide—which can combine with water in the body to form carbonic acid—they are more likely to experience panic attacks than healthy individuals are.

Cathleen O'Grady @ Ars Technica: Health benefits of wind and solar offset all subsidies
The climate benefits of solar and wind power were hefty, but the majority of the benefit came from air quality improvements.

Frank Viviano @ National Geographic: This Tiny Country Feeds the World
“Water isn’t the fundamental problem. It’s poor soil,” [van den Ende] says. “The absence of nutrients can be offset by cultivating plants that act in symbiosis with certain bacteria to produce their own fertilizer.”

Rosalind Bentley @ Southern Foodways Alliance > Gravy podcast: Hostesses of the Movement
[These women] opened their homes to the architects and strategists of the [Civil Rights] Movement, providing home cooked meals, places to rest and safe rooms for plotting attacks on Jim Crow.

AO3

So, hey, I made this vid for Club Vivid back in 2006 and wasn't totally happy with it and kept telling myself I would go back and fix it, but clearly that is never going to happen, and when I rewatched it this weekend I was actually pretty charmed by it, so I am finally posting it online. Never let it be said that I rush into things.



Speaking of not rushing into things: I have had a YouTube account since 2006 and have basically never used it... until this past weekend, when, after a round of backing up old master files which led to a round of encoding new .mp4 files, I decided to upload them to YouTube. So feel free to subscribe, if YouTube is where you are doing your vidwatching these days.

I am going in chronological order and am about halfway through the list. I probably won't deal with the rest of them until the coming weekend, but in the meantime, if you're having a fit of nostalgia, go browse. I've updated the downloadable versions as well as the AO3 embeds, so if you want a shiny mp4 version of Superstar / New Frontier / People Get Ready / whatever, there they are.

Dear everyone who said I would like The Good Place (esp. [personal profile] coffeeandink): Yes, fine, you were right. The power of Kristen Bell is greater even than my aversion to half-hour comedies.
