Letters: The good and the bad of Colorado’s drug divide; school safety (5/19/19) 19.5.2019 Denver Post: Opinion
The good and the bad of Colorado’s drug divide The recent decriminalization of hallucinogenic mushrooms in Denver has sparked conversations regarding the health effects and economic impacts behind the initiative. Colorado has once again established itself as the first state to take initiative in expanding our knowledge and dissolving much of the taboo revolving psychedelic drugs. I believe this motion was in favor of discovering possible medical benefits of mushrooms and reducing the often-negligible incarceration of buyers, sellers, and users of said hallucinogens.

Snakes make your skin crawl? This deadly fungus has the same effect on snakes. 25.10.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Snakes have a well-earned reputation as silent and deadly killers. But there’s another predator that quietly hunts in the wild. It’s called snake fungal disease and they appear to be no match for it. If the fungus known as SFD continues to devastate snake populations in the United States, the eastern massasauga rattlesnake could soon be a goner, according to a study announced Monday by the U.S. Geological Survey. So could the Louisiana pine snake. “Some snake populations in the eastern and Midwe...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Soil health 28.8.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Soil health — you may have heard this latest descriptor and wondered what it is. Hopefully, by now you are aware that soil is not just dirt. It’s a complicated ecosystem that takes place beneath our feet to support the environment that we see above ground. Plants often are portrayed as the one of the most important organism in our ecosystem, but without good soil, there would be no plants. So while you may not consider soil as “pretty” as a plant, I would argue that it is more important. A healthy soil consists of billions of micro-organisms and thousands of macro-organisms that all work together to better the soil. Glomalin is a micro-organism that stores carbon in its protein and carbohydrate (glucose or sugar) subunits. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, found living on plant roots around the world, appear to be the only producers of glomalin. The fungi use carbon from the plant to grow and make glomalin. In return, the fungi's hair-like filaments, called hyphae, extend the reach of plant roots. Hyphae ...
