    A Snowboarder’s Unbelievable Tiny House

    Mike Basich was a snowboarding pioneer. But after hundreds of competitions that brought money and fame, he went in search of something different. [ROCK MUSIC PLAYING] Welcome. Thank you. It’s such a rush just to get up here. [MUSIC PLAYING] When did you first get into snowboarding? My mom was always looking for something different and fun for us to try out, so that’s how we discovered it. And the sport had no rules. And that’s where– that kept us in it, because no one was telling us what to do. Oh! Ouch! From 7 to about 14 years old, I had epilepsy. And so being different than everyone else,…

    What Do “Smart Pills” Really Do to Your Brain?

    [♪ INTRO ] We humans are obsessed with getting smarter. So besides your typical methods like school and hard work, we’ve also tried some pretty strange things in the name of brain enhancement. For example, Nikola Tesla would supposedly squish his toes 100 times on each foot to stimulate the brain cells, while Isaac Newton stuck with celibacy. Or there is just like popping some kinda magic pill like Bradley Cooper does in Limitless. Nootropics are a group of chemicals that supposedly heighten things like concentration, attention, and memory — without any side-effects. They’re so-called “smart pills.” Some of these drugs do seem to affect brain chemistry, but scientists aren’t…

    How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory

    Translator: Joseph Geni Reviewer: Morton Bast The most massive tsunami perfect storm is bearing down upon us. This perfect storm is mounting a grim reality, increasingly grim reality, and we are facing that reality with the full belief that we can solve our problems with technology, and that’s very understandable. Now, this perfect storm that we are facing is the result of our rising population, rising towards 10 billion people, land that is turning to desert, and, of course, climate change. Now there’s no question about it at all: we will only solve the problem of replacing fossil fuels with technology. But fossil fuels, carbon — coal and gas —…

    Honey: Bacteria’s Worst Enemy

    Honey. You’ve met honey. It’s that sticky, sweet stuff. Basically just slightly liquidy sugar in a plastic bear bottle, right? Wrong! Honey is a supercharged bacteria-killing powerhouse. And it’s all down to what those hardworking bees put into it, from immune proteins to the sugar itself. Since ancient times, honey has been used to prevent wounds from getting infected. And these days, we use purified and standardized versions of honey to fight infections in hospitals. Honey has three main tricks for fighting bacteria. The first is all that sugar. Honey is only about 17% water. Most–but not all–of what remains is sugar. The two main types of sugar in honey…

    Can Land cause Climate Change? (new IPCC report)

    so there’s a new IPCC or intergovernmental panel on climate change report out today and for me that makes it the most exciting time of the year except for the fact that the report details how climate change is affecting the very fabric of our planet the report makes for fairly bleak reading as let’s be honest do most climate change reports this one specifically is on climate change and land and took over a hundred authors over two years to put together and rests on over 7,000 studies so there’s quite a lot of info in there as you can tell by the reports full title which I’m now…

    Green Buildings – Renewable

    – This is Stephani. She thinks about buildings differently than you or I do. Stephani’s a consultant. She helps builders make sure that the buildings they’re creating are energy efficient and sustainable. But to understand what it is she does, you have to start thinking of heat and energy less as things that come out of vents and outlets and more like an ecosystem. We are going to talk to Stephani about how we can use design and technology to make those ecosystems work better. And how what we learn creating buildings can be used to make better neighborhoods, and even cities. Here on Renewable. – My name is Stephani…
