California

I liked this a lot and thought this article worthy of scarfing up and sharing with you all. I am especially intrigued by this neem oil, of which I have never heard. Must research it and most importantly, where to get it.

Urban farming in Oakland: Kosodate Farms

Yolanda Burrell is a farmer and beekeeper on Kosodate Farms, a half-acre urban family farm in Oakland, California. Yolanda has a long history with farming. She grew up on a one-acre farm about 60 miles north of Oakland in Santa Rosa, where her parents emphasized the importance of knowing the origin of one’s food. Though her parents farmed with chemicals, when she started Kosodate Farms, Yolanda chose to employ sustainable methods to grow vegetables, herbs and fruit.

Yolanda’s agroecological practices include grey water recycling, beekeeping, composting and a variety of pest management techniques, including mechanical traps and neem oil.

Her mechanical traps are colored or scented sticky papers placed on tree trunks or attached to stakes. The color or scent attracts the insects, and the sticky substance traps them. Neem oil is a naturally occurring pesticide from the seeds of the neem tree that can be sprayed on plants without harming them. Yolanda uses these techniques to manage unwanted insects at Kosodate, including scale insects (an order of insect that parasitizes plants and feeds on their sap) and citrus leaf miners (a moth that feeds on young leaves).

Yolanda maintains a vibrant homestead where she and her family produce much of their own food, all without the use of chemicals. She is also co-founder with master gardener Brigit Evans of Pollinate Farm & Garden, a general store in Oakland that offers supplies for and workshops on organic farming and gardening, beekeeping and small animal husbandry.

Look at that, this is a story from 2013… hmmm. Tried finding the url in the photo… gone. Oh well.

I think there should be a lot more of this sort of thing, what this lady is doing, I mean. It would solve so many problems and ease so much stress. Maybe even bring back a bit of more relaxed times.

But I am very sure that that is just not going to happen and the world will become ever more reliant on technology until it reaches a point where it just collapses under it’s own chaotic weight.

Time, as the cliche goes, will tell.

But, not to derail my own thread, but damn, arresting people for having a vegetable garden instead of grass – as some towns now do – is not only un-American in my view, it is downright asinine and those who advocate and enable it should perhaps be put in public stockades.

Wow, I am getting a bit … something … in my old age.

And my old age has only just begun.

peace

UFO footage of a sphere like object in Los Angeles California San Gabriel Valley on 08/28/2017

Finally! A UFO video that is quite likely to be real, unlike the crap posted by hoaxerscum like secureteam10 and other pieces of pigpewps like him.

Good things… it’s seven and a half minutes, it’s daylight, it’s clear, Mr Lopez’s comments are calm and match the visuals… and then there is the helicopter.

Could be a balloon, but, it doesn’t move very much, so the thing would need to be well tethered and that seems highly unlikely. It looks like it’s up pretty high when he zooms out. Even if it was tethered with a ridiculously long string, it does not take much wind at all to move a balloon around.

And the helicopter… he’d either have to know it was going to be in the area and know it was going to turn back or he’d have had to hire it to go around his balloon, which is of course possible, but, when I was in the film industry many, many moons ago, that would be around $3,000 per hour. God knows what it is now. I don’t think anyone would do that for a YouTube video…just sayin.’

The length of the video is a strong point against CGI as I am personally familiar with how long that would take to render (lots of hours) and the level of equipment needed to do it.

So… I am digging it. Which has not happened in a long, long time.

Noted by member charlyv – “Additionally, it seems the photographer “Lopez” made SecureTeam take the video down.
Even though he credited him with the video!”

Whoa here’s another!

August 28 monday around 6:45am me and my coworker noticed a black orb hovering over the area of La Puente West Covina and it was visible from Whittier in the area I was working at. Also I noticed a lot of activity with the sheriff’s flying over it.

this is too cool…

Here’s a full HD still posted here in this thread by my buddy ArMaP, an imaging specialist from Portugal!

Here is a stabilized video exclusive to ATS so I shouldn’t post it but here is the link!

the poster’s words:

Exclusive to ATS… a stabilized version of a big chunk of the footage (the first few mins don’t stabilize too well, but everything else does)

With Inception music for added dramatic effect, and “two fighter jets” in the first few seconds LOL

I think it makes it clearer to see that it doesn’t ascend or descend, perhaps at all, not even slowly, it’s maintaining altitude IMO. And beyond its few miles-per-hour movement, it really does appear “motionless”, rather spooky in fact!

As mentioned before, if there’s enough “wind” to move it then why doesn’t the wind rotate it? Unless it has somehow been weighted inside at the bottom (although there is a little bit of rotation in the first few mins that isn’t in my stabilized video), enough to keep it aloft but little enough not to sink back to the ground…how would that work? Hot air balloons do a pretty piss poor job of maintaining altitude, how come “this one” can??

And I also found a third angle/witness (from the freeway) which at the very least confirms solidly that it truly did happen. (just below)

Approximately at 6:45 am over the juction of the 60 and 605 freeways in Southern California I saw this sphere standing still by itself. A few moments after, the helicopter showed up and circled it a couple times and left. Due to the shortness of the video, it will seem as if the helicopter was pulling the sphere but if you pay close attention to the video you will notice that te helicopter flies away leaving the sphere in the same place.

Battle of LA

Today is the 69th Anniversary of the spectacular Battle of LA, in which a meandering UFO didn’t even notice as the armed forces lobbed 1,430 shells at it, making many direct hits upon the object. Said object suffered no dents as it continued on towards the sea.

Please don’t forget to raise a cup of your favorite beverage in honor of this truly outstanding event!
