Balancing our ecology, economics, and emotions provides enough challenge to last a lifetime. We never reach a magical destination in this quest for balance, a point in time where we can say “I’ve arrived.” Every new discovery makes us aware of the need to refine, to constantly tweak our lives and our farm business. The more balanced our enterprises, the more stable they become. Our culture seems more unstable than ever, and we ecopractitioners can easily be sucked into whatever the mass hysteria happens to be. For example, in post-terror paranoia, food safety is spawning a plethora of government and consumer-oriented security measures, including mandatory food irradiation. In the name of sterilization, mass murder of microbes is the new protocol. But without the 3 trillion microbes in the human intestinal tract, none of us would be able to metabolize food. Microbes in and on food have always indicated life. When we zap the life out of food, what is left won’t maintain our bodies. Paranoid of ingesting foodborne bacteria that gives us diarrhea, our food police would rather mandate food that won’t maintain a heartbeat. Balance speaks of sense, and much of today’s public policy is imbalanced nonsense. Balance would suggest having food with the right amount of good microbes but without the bad bugs. It can be done. BalanceStabilityforYourLife & Farm by Joel Salatin But, on a personal level, each of us deals with this issue, and it is this sphere on which I’d like to focus attention. Back when we were first becoming successful with the pastured poultry model, capitalist visitors would stop by and tell us we should grow 100,000 birds. Wellmeaning, they encouraged us to aspire to greatness, to become the Frank Purdues of the pastured poultry world. Reprinted from April 2002 • • Vol.32, No.4 - Cover Story But the problem with those numbers was that they would not fit into our ecological constraints. Pasture in our climate will only uptake about 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre per year. With the field shelters, the birds over any given square foot twice in a year, for that would dump on 400 pounds of nitrogen. The excess would either vaporize, which is both a loss and odor problem, or leach into the groundwater and become a pollutant. As a result, our pastured broiler carrying capacity must not exceed our agronomic and forage metabolic capacity. Sure, we could buy tons more grain and run these birds across the pasture several times a year. But then pastured poultry would be just as big an environmental disaster as the conventional fecal-factory concentrationcamp facilities. When I run the figures on land area required to produce the grain to feed broilers, it comes out to one acre per 500 birds. At our stocking density, we cover one acre of land per 500 broilers. That is balance. I am deeply distressed to see so many organic producers exceeding ecological balance just because the wonders of modern transportation and commerce allow it to be done. Plenty of organic poultry operations exist on acreages far too small to metabolize all the manure generated or to grow the grain on that land. Most organic eggs and broilers are grown in confinement facilities, often with a dirt yard attached, which receives incredible loads of nitrogen — sometimes more than 5,000 pounds per acre per year. The same could be said of organic beef feedlots “Our world needs us to provide examples of balance, to show that production need not compromise the local ecology, to show that a profitable business need not adulterate the demographics of the community.” or organic confinement dairies. By the way, loafing paddocks don’t change the figures. If you want to exceed the natural carrying capacity of the land, then implement systems that will increase the nutrient metabolism. An example would be irrigation. P.A. Yeomans, the Australian water guru, thought the goal of every farmer should be to eliminate water runoff. If that water can be impounded during excess periods and metered out strategically in shortfalls, it reduces flooding downstream, on the one hand, and, on the other, maintains soil biological activity. Water applied during droughts allows the plants to capture solar energy and turn it into biomass, which stimulates the decay cycle as a byproduct of the growth cycle. In this way, a given acre of land can metabolize more nutrients per year due to ratcheting up plant growth. Such hypermetabolism would open the system to receive more nutrients, allowing balance to be maintained with, say, more chickens.

What if the Supernatural Became Normal and Natural in Your Life? How would your world change if you regularly experienced the miraculous? And what if this happened everywhere you went-in a way that attracted people to Jesus? It wouldn t just make a difference in your world; it would make the world different. It might sound too good to be true...but that s the Spirit Contemporary life. While working as a first responder in an ambulance, Leon Fontaine longed to see God s power at work outside the four walls of a church. He learned through many life-changing experiences that we can all unlock the miraculous in a way that works anywhere-at home, in a hospital, at work--with anyone! The Spirit Contemporary way of life involves communicating with others as Jesus would: using their language, stories, and settings. Leon draws on biblical truth and personal stories to reveal how this dynamic first-century faith can be yours when you live so in tune with God that you re guided in ways that are both natural and supernatural. "In a world seeking an authentic, transparent, and genuine touch of God, Leon equips us with a Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, Bible-based, kingdom prescription." --Samuel Rodriguez, president, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, author of Be Light "When Spirit and Contemporary are synergized, phenomenal outcomes will happen in the church...I believe this valuable resource will help the church go to higher levels of impact and influence in the years ahead." -- Dr. Elmer L. Towns, co-Founder of Liberty University “The Spirit Contemporary Life is a grace-based approach to moving in the gifts of the spirit. You will be greatly blessed by it. --Joseph Prince, senior pastor, New Creation Church
This books ( The Sweet Life: Find Passion, Embrace Fear, and Create Success on Your Own Terms ) Made by Dulce Candy Ruiz
The YouTube star and beauty guru shares her hard-won lessons on success, style, and finding the sweetness in all aspects of your life. Since posting her first makeup tutorial in 2008, Dulce Candy has become one of the top beauty stars on YouTube, boasting more than 2 million subscribers and garnering hundreds of millions of views of her bright and energetic videos. But before she became a style icon and a role model to millions of young women, Dulce struggled to make her way in the world. Having emigrated with her family from Mexico to the United States when she was six years old, Dulce battled depression and low self-esteem as a teenager and eventually enlisted in the army in an attempt to turn her life around. It was here, on the battlefields of Iraq, that she finally uncovered and embraced her true passion—fashion and beauty—and gained the confidence to move on from her past, follow her dream, and launch what would become her wildly successful brand. The Sweet Life chronicles Dulce Candy’s inspiring story, showing that anyone can be successful no matter their background and sharing the hard-won lessons that helped transform her from a shy, self-doubting teenager into a confident business woman and beauty expert. According to Dulce, you can’t live the sweet life until you accept who you are—flaws and all—and take chances—knowing that failure is just a part of learning and fear is a sign that you’re trying something new and exciting. Drawing on anecdotes from her own life and career, Dulce offers advice on building a personal brand (“Know what makes you different�?), building confidence (“Fake it till you make it�?) and balancing the personal and the professional (“Don’t settle when you settle down�?). She also emphasizes the importance of both inner and outer beauty, encouraging women to love themselves, ignore the critics, and flaunt their own original style. Part memoir, part manifesto, The Sweet Life is a fun, inspirational guide for any woman who wants to find success and happiness without compromising who she is.
