  1. Building Soil Health by Dr. Elaine Ingham (PVP096) | Permaculture Voices.

    Podcast: Play in new window | Download “Mother nature abhors bare soil.”Dr. Elaine Ingham  

        Key Takeaways: Organic matter holds 10 times its weight in water. Bacterial secretions provide a glue to help hold soil together. 80% of inorganic fertilizers leach out of soil. Look at perennial deep rooted, short plants as cover crops that put more bio-mass in the ground via roots versus above ground bio-mass. Rainfall can compact bare soil.  Keep bare soil surfaces covered.  One option is a biological cover that feeds the microbial soil life.     http://www.permaculturevoices.com/podcast/building-soil-health-by-dr-elaine-ingham-pvp096/

  3. BBC - Podcasts - Four Thought: Russell M. Davies 21 Sept 2011

    Four Thought talks include stories and ideas which will affect our future, in politics, society, the economy, business, science, technology or the arts. Recorded live, the talks are given by a range of people with a new thought to share.

    After the internet and social media, what will be the next technological revolution? Writer, blogger and social entrepreneur Russell M. Davies argues that like the early days of blogging, we are about to witness another flowering of individual creativity. This time, he says, it will unleash "all sorts of interesting gadgety things", and determine our relationships with them. "It’s about making your own stuff, which might be a bit silly and a bit trivial and pointless, but you get the satisfaction of making it yourself," he says. This revolution in individual gadgetry - and designing our relationship with them - will prove "exciting, radical, life-affirming stuff". Four Thought is a series of talks which combine thought provoking ideas and engaging storytelling. Recorded in front of an audience at the RSA in London, speakers take to the stage to air their latest thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect our culture and society.

  4. Edge Conversations: The Argumentative Theory

    "Reasoning was not designed to pursue the truth. Reasoning was designed by evolution to help us win arguments. That’s why they call it The Argumentative Theory of Reasoning. So, as they put it, "The evidence reviewed here shows not only that reasoning falls quite short of reliably delivering rational beliefs and rational decisions. It may even be, in a variety of cases, detrimental to rationality. Reasoning can lead to poor outcomes, not because humans are bad at it, but because they systematically strive for arguments that justify their beliefs or their actions. This explains the confirmation bias, motivated reasoning, and reason-based choice, among other things."
