    While I definitely consider a bar of dark chocolate, scented candles, and a jar of half-sour pickles—yes, really—as my all-time favorite things, indoor plants have also earned a permanent spot on my faves list. Not only do they add character to any home, but, for me, watching my succulents, devil’s ivy, cactus, and prayer plants grow is a treat within itself. After all, caring for something else does make you feel a bit more confident and responsible—even during all those times when you feel like you’re barely mastering the art of adulting. Alas, unlike some prized planters, I will admit that my plant parenting skills are still a work in process. That means I'm still making a lot of mistakes along the way—overwatering my plants at times, sometimes giving my plants too much sun, and still trying to understand the whole changing the pH-balance of your soil thing. But, always eager to add some new plant children to my growing family—and hopefully learn some new planting skills along the way—I was happy to get my hands on The Sill Living...
    Most of us think of gardens as sunny places, and that’s likely because the crops we are accustomed to growing and eating require full sun to thrive. And, it’s true: those summer veggie gardens wild with squash, green beans, and tomatoes need plenty of sunshine. However, there are many edible plants that can grow in the shade. For those of us seeking to grow more of what we eat, it’s important to learn the ins and outs of what we can grow in less than sun-drenched conditions. It turns out that a multitude of fruits and vegetables prefer shade, or at least dappled shade, in order to do their thing. Many of these are expensive specialty items or foods that never make it to market shelves. That means that we not only get some food but get something a little of the eaten track. If experimental and adventurous, along with a sprinkling of self-sufficient, sounds like a good time, the following list of shade-tolerant produce might be just what you are looking for.

    A huge begonia plant standing at almost 12 feet tall with a stem comparable to a human arm has been discovered in Tibet. Researchers in China have classified the plant, discovered last year, as a new species of begonia, called Begonia giganticaulis.    The begonia is so big that staff at the Chenshan Herbarium in Shanghai are applying for Guinness World Records title for their B. giganticaulis specimen.  Despite only just being classified, its conservation status should be assigned to 'endangered', according to researchers, due to its scarcity.  Most varieties of begonia grow well in sun or shade, making them a popular choice for a hanging basket.  Dr Daike Tian, a researcher at the Shanghai Chenshan Plant Science Research Center, with an individual Begonia giganticaulis plant The impressive main stem base of Begonia giganticaulis with a clenched human fist for comparison THE BEGONIA GENUSWith over 2,000 known species, begonia is one of the largest plant genera in the world.

    Cannabis plants may absorb carcinogenic heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium from soils, experts have warned.  Researchers in Pennsylvania have conducted a 'meta-analysis' of previous studies to examine the ability of cannabis plants to absorb heavy metals.  They report that some cannabis strains have been bred specifically for 'phytoremediation' – growing plants to remove pollutants from soils.  But this risks heavy metals seeping into cannabis crops that are later harvested and smoked by humans, potentially causing cancer and neurological issues.  Heavy metal contaminants could be dangerous for people who ingest them, the researchers say, including cancer patients who use medical marijuana.  A new meta-analysis examines the ability of cannabis plants to absorb heavy metals and discusses the resulting health impacts on consumers (stock image) PHYTOREMEDIATION Phytoremediation is the use of plants to remove pollutants from soils, air or water.   Phytoremediation is a good way of targeting heavy metal accumulation in soils in hazardous environments, such as nuclear sites.   Heavy metal soil accumulation has been rapidly increased due to various natural processes and industrial activities.  Source: Front.

    US climate envoy John Kerry boldly predicted Tuesday that the US will not rely on coal for power at all nine years from now.  'By 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal,' Kerry said in an interview with Bloomberg at the United Nation's COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.  'We will not have coal plants,' he said.   The US has been trending away from coal as a fuel source in recent years, in favor of cheaper forms of power such as natural gas, wind and solar, but still relies on the fossil fuel for roughly a fifth of its electricity. The share of US electricity generation from coal is expected to rise from 20% in 2020 to 23% in 2021 due to higher expected natural gas prices, according to the Energy Department's data agency. Many of the nation's largest energy companies do not have plans to phase out emissions from fossil fuels until 2050, though President Biden has a plan to make the US power grid carbon-free by 2035.  'We're saying we are going to be carbon free...
    Moss is one of those things we take for granted. We walk through the forest, and there it is. No one has done a thing to cultivate it there, but it’s everywhere and in the most vivacious greens. It can cover areas like a lawn. Some of it doesn’t even need sunlight, and some is quite content to grow on a rock rather than soil. It’s beautifully lush, but what the heck is it? Mosses are mysterious entities. They are often found in the depths of darkness, perched precariously on rocks or loitering around the roots of trees. Many species manage to have vibrant colors, and mosses seem to grow—save a rolling stone—where nothing else would dream of taking root. In fact, though often thought of as inhabiting moist places, there are mosses they grow in deserts in baking sunshine. They grow in Antarctica. They grow in the tropics. There seems no rhyme or reason. Suffice it to say, despite there being more than 12,000 species all around the world, many of us would feel comfortable calling moss strange....
    08/04/2021 at 6:33 PM CEST Andalusian lands are watching with concern the fierce race started by electricity companies to install solar panels covering as much land as possible. Hence, the Alianza Energía y Territorio (Aliente) platform has formally requested the Junta de Andalucía for a moratorium on the approval of large photovoltaic parks, as well as the urgent planning and management of the implementation of these industrial facilities in Andalusia. It is a request that, however, the businessmen do not believe is necessary to attend, since, they affirm, there is already a regulation that guarantees that the location chosen for the construction of new photovoltaic panels (and any other infrastructure) does not generate a Environmental problem. “These projects must be put to a stop & rdquor ;, argues Marisa Casal, the spokesperson for the organization ‘Valle Natural Río Grande’, who insists that the deadlines must be extended to rethink and study the impact that these constructions are having on the ground. It is not a new conflict. As Raimundo Real, professor of Biology at the University...
    Legislative language buried inside the 2,700-page infrastructure bill contains language with far more than funds for roads and bridges – with sections meant to boost women in trucking, expunge harmful invasive species, and tweak the mission of Amtrak. One section in the $1.2 trillion bill notes that women make up 47 per cent of the workforce, but just 6.6 per cent of truckers.  It also states that women truck drivers have been demonstrated to be 20 percent less likely to get in a crash than male counterparts. It states the sense of Congress Female truck drivers are less likely to be involved in an accident, according to a provision of the infrastructure bill, which also contains provisions on invasive species and Amtrak funding 'that the trucking industry should explore every opportunity to encourage and support the pursuit and retention of careers in trucking by women, including through programs that support recruitment, driver training, and mentorship.' Another transportation provision also requires research on limousine safety. It specifically seeks research 'into the development of motor vehicle safety standards for side impact protection, roof crush resistance, and...

    SEEING your child learn to crawl, walk and explore around the house can be exciting for any parents, but it can also be exhausting and scary. You could turn your back for a second, but that’s given your toddler enough time to get up to all kinds of mischief which could result in an unwanted injury. 2Make sure to cover up your sharp corners so your kids don't hit their headsCredit: Getty As we make our way through Child Safety Week, Hillary’s have come up with some simple tips to make sure your home is a safe and secure as possible.
