New Chicago "L" AdvertisingThe Chicago Transit Authority has launched a new type of advertising technology in the southbound Blue Line Dearborn subway tunnel between the Clark/Lake and Washington stations. Through the windows of the moving trains, customers will see a moving picture ad appear on the tunnel wall. This new advertising medium is expected to generate $100,000 annually in revenue for CTA.

Vertical FarmingIt took humans 10,000 years to learn how to grow most of the crops we now take for granted. Along the way, we despoiled most of the land we worked, often turning verdant, natural ecozones into semi-arid deserts. Over 60% of the human population now lives vertically in cities. The time has arrived for us to learn how to grow our food that way, too. If we do not, then in just another 50 years, 3 billion people will surely go hungry, and the world will be a very unpleasant place in which to live.
If successfully implemented, they offer the promise of urban renewal, sustainable production of a safe and varied food supply (year-round crop production), and the eventual repair of ecosystems that have been sacrificed for horizontal farming. Students at Columbia college came up with vertical farming designs...

Pus in our milk... yum
Many dairies in the U.S. are still using injections of Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) to increase milk yields in cows. rBGH has been banned in Canada, the European Union, Japan, and Australia, due to concerns that it damages the health of the cows, and possibly those who drink the milk. What exactly are the health concerns? rBGH milk may contain excessive levels of a natural growth factor, IGF-1, that has been linked to higher incidence of breast and colon cancers in humans.

I recently started learning more about factory farming. I think we should all be more aware of what goes on.
