These are devices that generate perfect drinking water from the air itself!
This is the greatest news i have heard in a long time related to the environment and people living without clean drinking water in the world. This here is the answer, no question. Spread the word, hopefully the big charities will discover this technology for use world wide. We can use this in our homes also and get the benefit of not having to drink recycled tap water or bottled waters from mysterious sources.

The truth is that we almost never want to take a day off of yoga per se, but we do want to take a few days off of aggravating the situation. Simply changing your yoga sequencing to emphasize other aspects of your practice more, will allow it to heal. The body does not heal unless it is exercising, generally speaking.

In its place, deeply bend your knees while doing any forward bending. In order to lengthen your hamstrings, we will employ this pose where we lie on our back and pull on our straight leg. That’s the most effective way to lengthen hamstrings and it does so in a way that is absolutely and totally safe for lower backs. Also note if you have herniated discs, avoid almost all twists unless you are with a very competent teacher and you engage your belly. Please note, it’s very important that you bend your knees during the forward bending as a way to alleviate the stress in the sacroiliac joint, which is a ligament, not a tendon. Okay?
An example of Sun Salutation for lower backs is inhale, your arms above your head. Exhale, forward bend and deeply bend your knees. Inhale, look up, keep your knees bent. Exhale, step your feet back and lower yourself down. Inhale, cobra pose or upward dog. Exhale, Downward Dog.
Fred Busch: Yeah. That was the main catalyst for me. I was spiritually aware when I was a kid. I don’t know how, but even when I was 15 and 14, I was reading Lao Tse and Zen Buddhism and things about enlightenment, Taoism. In high school, I was attracted to that stuff.
And then I went and I studied wildlife and all that, and I traveled around the world and kept learning as much as I could about how the world works and all that. And then I got deathly sick?
Interviewer: What it was age when you started to get sick?
Fred Busch: 22. 23. 1998. And that’s how I came very close to dying, and I got very lucky to be saved to speak, as fast as I was, so I basically got very lucky even though I got very sick. I had a very powerful realization about how valuable life is and how precious it is and how sacred it is, and I never forgot that vision because it’s burned into my brain, and I dreamed about being physically fit, and I dreamed about – this is while I was in bed, sweating and wondering whether I was going to survive or not.
I was dreaming about running through the grass; and I was dreaming about what it would be like to be healthy again. I could just feel how lucky I would be if I could get all that back. So although I was treated successfully in Africa, I came back to the States to recover.
And I was very weak, and that’s when I found yoga.
Interviewer: This was ’98 still?
Fred Busch: Yeah. Uh-huh. And as soon as I started doing yoga, I realized how valuable it was, and I started doing it basically every day right away. I wasn’t like a once a week kind of person for a couple of years. It never happened with me. Once I started, I started directly.
And then the yoga brought in the awareness of my body, which I went to a school for healing and massage therapy, and I studied all about the body and anatomy and the science behind the body. And I also studied food and nutrition and what is human food and what is not human food. And I studied all of that very extensively during this time in 98 and 99.
And I put it all into practice because everything I studied made sense to me, the idea of eating food that wasn’t cooked made a lot of sense to me, cause I studied wildlife, and I’ve seen how the world works out in the wild, so everything was common sense to eat food that wasn’t destroyed. So I ate well.
So for seven straight years, I did yoga every single day and ate 100% raw food. And basically, I used myself as the science experiment for what is this gonna do? And every single day I got stronger, and every single day I felt better. And to this day, I feel like I’m getting stronger every single day.
Interviewer: Are you still eating the raw food?
Fred Busch: No.
Interviewer: A little bit –
Fred Busch: Oh, a lot. I’m still eat –
Fred Busch: I still eat very very well by average standards, but compared to the 100% raw food, I’ve eased off that only because it was easier in my lifestyle to ease off of it. I can’t pretend that it wasn’t. It’s a little bit more fun to eat some toast once in a while.
Interviewer: But you still don’t touch animal, which is the most important.
Fred Busch: Oh no. No way. Nothing from an animal.

Greetings Ruckus Family,
This has been a busy spring and we have goodies for you to watch and experience with us! We hosted an amazing Tactics Summit, and supported community actions with Klamath River indigenous folks, anti-Chevron activists, and Palestinian solidarity youth.
IP3 met with residents of Kaua'i that work on a plethora of land rights, environmental and sovereignty issues - and while there, took over the air waves with this great, in-depth interview.
We demanded the comprehensive media we need to support our action communities at the National Council on Media Reform.
Not Your Solider partnered with Bay Peace and Fellowship of Reconciliation to host 'Creative Resistance: Our Dreams Will Not be Recruited!' At the event, Sharon (Projects Director) reported her experience in Colombia and the amazing tactics they are using to resist the military. And in the midst of all that, Oakland United just keeps getting better!

The National Yoga Party is an association of organized voters who practice Yoga and so share a common understanding of the world and the steps necessary to help make it a better place.
Our Charter is Simple. We seek to be organized and disciplined and ready to vote together.
1) We are loosely aligned Democrats who just want to be more clear about our positions regarding eating animals and not being conscious of our actions and how that effects the world.
2) We suggest the practice of Yoga Poses for great exercise and Yoga Meditation for peace of mind and heart, and the combination of both at the same time as a great practice. We are not affiliated with any religion at all. People of all Faiths can incorporate yoga (scientific) techniques for health and peace of mind.
3) We are environmentally oriented with a deep respect for the earth. We are interested in very concrete actions to mitigate climate change and loss of rainforest and nature everywhere.
We understand that humans try to live in balance with the earth.
4) We are opposed to the idea of biofuels as a solutions to the climate and energy situation as biofuels cause more carbon than they save to make and because they drive prices of staple foods higher where it can't be afforded.
5) We choose to when we can and prefer to not eat meat or fish because we know the multitude of reasons for limiting its intake.
6) We are supporters of the Unions and the people who organize to make a better life for themselves.
7) We believe Exercising Every Day and Eating Smart Help make us smarter and healthier.
8) We Believe that Peace is the highest state for human kind. Battles may have to be fought but peace is the jewel. Unnecessary war is to be stopped and peacekeeping forces increased to bring more peace on Earth.
9) We strongly disagree with all forms of hunting except for survival and whaling as presently practiced by the Japanese Government.
10) We believe that kindness and compassion can be a guiding principle in our dealings with our fellow human beings and have a reverence for life itself.
