NASA: ‘If You See One Meteor Shower This Year, Make It the Perseids’

Don’t miss out. Stay Informed. Get EcoWatch’s Top News of the Day.

One of the best meteor showers of the year—the Perseids—will delight stargazers this week. “If you see one meteor shower this year, make it August’s Perseids or December’s Geminids,” NASA says. “The Perseids feature fast and bright meteors that frequently leave trains, and in 2015 there will be no moonlight to upstage the shower.” Plus, August is a lot warmer than December for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.

The Perseids can be best seen during the pre-dawn hours from Aug. 11 through Aug. 14, according to Earth Sky, with the best show on the 13th. The slender waning crescent moon won’t obstruct the views for those hoping to catch a glimpse of the show. The moon “is not the meteor watcher’s friend,” says NASA. “Light reflecting off a bright moon can be just as detrimental to good meteor viewing as those bright lights of the big city.”

Going Green with Antiques at EcoSimplista

EcoSimplistaWhat are some benefits of owning antiques and vintage furniture?

We are all aware that the environment is in a dangerous position and that for our planet to exist in the future, we need to change the way we live now. The atmospheric level of carbon dioxide increased 31% between the years 1800 and 2000, and we are watching the environment suffer in a multitude of ways as a result. Everything we do has the ability to affect the environment, and it’s important that we as individuals do what we can to minimize the damage. You can calculate your carbon footprint here to better understand the effect your daily life has on the environment.

One great way to go green is to furnish your home with antiques. By using antiques, you are giving them a new home and ensuring that they will stay out of a landfill. When garbage is piled in a landfill, bacteria break down the parts that are organic, and methane and carbon dioxide are released into the environment. Even though keeping an antique out of a landfill is only a small difference, each small difference matters. Antiques have a carbon footprint 16 times lower than newly manufactured pieces of furniture, making them a much more environmentally friendly choice.

In addition to the environmental benefits of antiques, they are often beautifully made, recalling an intricacy and detail that is difficult to find in modern furniture. Investing in antiques is inviting history into your home, welcoming pieces whose pasts are storied. Even if you find an antique piece that is damaged or has a chipping coat of paint, don’t be discouraged – nearly all antiques can be refinished to have new, fresh life.

EcoSimplista - 1574 There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment; if you’re looking for furniture, finding antiques is a great step. At Eco Simplista, we are always bringing in antiques. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to keep up with our new finds.

Acupuncture points are located in the small depressions or hollows in the skin called gates.  Thru these gates, one can access the internal streams and rivers of energy that transport Qi and blood.

Some examples us acupuncture treatments would be, helping individuals to manifest their potential in the real world; helping someone that is experiencing an emotional situation (good or bad), to feel or express it  and one more example would be helping someone that is constantly discharging energy to store energy in order to have a sense of cohesion.

Restoring Faded Pavers with new Dyeing Process

A recent residential project – Restoring Faded Pavers in Austin, TX

This Texas application had faded brown pavers that needed rejuvenation. National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in the country with over 2 million square feet of pavers protected. We recognized a need to develop a coloring process for faded pavers. Fading of pavers is a fatal conclusion to the lack of continued sealing of pavers.
2015-03-10 12.50.44-800
The goal was to RESTORE the pavers, or come as close as we could to a natural look. We wanted to avoid the STAINED or PAINTED look which would render an unnatural look, and an ongoing maintenance issue. For vehicular applications staining and painting tend to ‘lift’ with hot tires. Our dye penetrates the porous pavers.

2015-03-10 12.19.45-800

For pavers with hues of various colors, the very small molecules in the dye combined with our customized application process will allow the various colors to still show.
