    There are now more and more promising studies that could potentially reverse some effects of aging. Certainly something to be hopeful about, I think there's potential there for everyone to live well beyond a hundred with a good quality of life too.

    Apart from drugs and hormones that can reverse some effects of aging, transfusion of young blood has proven to rejuvenate older mice in lab studies.

    Joe Rogan and Mel Gibson talked at length about stem cells and their rejuvenating powers.

    It's in the Rogan thread. I believe it was from last year.

    On a sunny morning last week, 1,200 students between the ages of 8 and 14 headed to the beach to undertake the biggest pollution clean up ever seen in the historic Belgian coastal city of Ostend.

    A collective of teachers from 26 catholic schools launched the initiative with a commitment to providing their pupils with the tools and knowledge to help them live in a world where the environment is cared for.

    A representative of the Flemish Minister of the Environment, Koen van den Heuvel, applauded their “Oceans of tomorrow” project, which was developed in partnership with the University of Antwerp to teach 8,000 local children about the importance of clean seas over the course of a year.


    And, to make it fun, they brought along a support staff of blue Surfs.

    Skiing in Copenhagen?

    That’s right. Last weekend in Copenhagen, an 8-year dream was realized when the first paying skiers took their runs down a one-third-mile course, wrapping around what is possibly the greenest power plant in the world.

    The plant is so clean and safe that designers were able to turn its building mass into a new hub for social life.


    A hybrid between a building and a landscape, the huge glass and mirrored structure contains planters covering the façade in a checkerboard pattern that might one day give the illusion of a green mountain from every direction.

    Copenhill, as it’s called, features ski-lifts on the outside and also a glass elevator for seeing the inner workings of how the city’s trash is transformed into both electricity and heating for more than 200,000 homes.

    The waste-to-power plant itself opened in 2017 under the name Amager Bakke (Amager, for the island Copenhagen is on, and Bakke, the Danish word for “hill”).

    Visitors can relax in the restaurant and bar at the highest point of the building, or meander on the steep hiking and running trails. It even features the tallest climbing wall in the world— 270-feet (85 meters) high, designed with overhangs and ledges of white, like an icy mountain. (For certified climbers only at the top.)



    The $660 million power plant will process up to 440,000 tons of waste each year using furnaces, turbines, and steam. The electricity it produces can heat 160,000 homes and provide electric power to another 60,000. And though these numbers are impressive, the 24-hour operation of the entire facility can reportedly be handled by just two engineers.

    I just discovered that there is a search engine that plants trees as you search. It's called Ecosia.

    Great find Dreamtimer!!! I like the simplicity of the engineering bit.
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
