Gardening is good for your health. Now make it easy on your wallet
2015-05-25 02:04:59 (1 hours ago) 
From going organic to simply being organised, a range of experts give their top money-saving tips

Been inspired sufficiently by the Chelsea Flower Show to go out into the garden? Then you’ve been enjoying some “horticultural therapy”. A growing number of GPs and healthcare professionals are “prescribing” gardening to improve their patients’ health. In fact, the benefits of just being able to see a green space from a window is said to be worth £300 per person per year to the economy.But what’s good for your health is not always healthy for your wallet, and gardening can be an expensive hobby. Estimates of the typical spend on gardens by UK households range from £123 a year to as much as £30,000 over your lifetime, according to research by Poundstretcher and Gardeningexpress.co.uk. We asked a range of experts to give us their top money-saving tips:

Get to know your garden
“A mistake most gardeners make when starting out is to buy lots of expensive plants without taking into consideration the requirements of each plant, which often results in a waste of money and effort,” says Veronica Perez Diaz, gardener for Better Bankside and Borough Market in south London. To avoid this, she recommends “getting to know your space” so you can identify sunny spots and plant accordingly.

Far from facing the truth, the US is telling new lies about Iraq
2015-05-25 03:10:57 (10 minutes ago) 
Politicians who claim they had no choice but to support the invasion are wrong. America got a war it wanted - even if it wasn’t what it expected

A couple of weeks ago, the Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush was asked in an interview with Fox News whether, knowing what he knows now, he would have invaded Iraq. It’s the kind of predictable question for which most people assumed he would have a coherent answer. They were wrong. Jeb blew it. “I would have [authorised the invasion],” he said. “And so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody. And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.”

For the next few days, as he was hammered from left and right, he flailed around like a four-star general in search of a plausible exit strategy. In a number of do-overs, he answered the same question with “I don’t know”, “I didn’t understand the question”, and “no” before finally falling back on the perennial Republican default of blaming everything on Barack Obama.

Armada: 12 Days To Save England review – a fascinating account of an epic event
2015-05-25 02:04:59 (1 hours ago) 

Dan Snow single-handedly saves England from the pesky Spanish. Plus a smashing documentary in Demolition: The Wrecking Crew

Summer, 1588, and England faces an overwhelming threat. We’re on the verge of invasion: this is Armada: 12 Days To Save England (BBC2, Sunday). Dan Snow strolls purposefully and Englishly along Albion’s white cliffs. It looks like he’s going to see those cheeky Spaniards off himself, hold a big manly hand up over the Channel and say: no way Jose. Or no way Felipe II, who was in charge at the time over there, when Elizabeth the Never Dunnit was on the throne here.

You can see what got Philip’s goatee about England; we were basically the Somalia of the day in terms of piracy, helped ourselves to anything that took our fancy, and rewarded our pirates with knighthoods. Plus Elizabeth had turned Phillip down years earlier, after making him wait a long time for an answer; hell hath no fury like a man spurned, as they say.

The benefits of solar do outweigh its costs. Some have a hard time accepting it
2015-05-25 03:10:57 (10 minutes ago) 

A new Grattan Institute report on rooftop solar says its economic costs exceed its benefits by $9bn. That’s true only if you don’t include all the benefits

Oh dear. Here we go again. The solar industry is clearly winning the battle to turn the global electricity industry upside down and inside out. The plunging cost of battery storage will accelerate that process. It’s just that some people have a hard time accepting it.

The latest big headlines are from the Grattan Institute, which wrote in a report that the economic costs of rooftop solar outweighed the benefits by $9bn. When you actually look at the numbers, they’re a witch’s brew of mistaken assumptions and omissions.

All the supposed negative impacts on the network, if they exist, are likely to be reversed when batteries come in, and PV households will be the first to install them, potentially making the grid much stronger, if the utilities provide the right incentives.

Why not have headlines which say the investment people have made in PV is soon to provide billions in benefits to all consumers, because adding storage provides a much more resilient power system?

Gardening is good for your health. Now make it easy on your wallet
2015-05-25 02:10:17 (1 hours ago) 
From going organic to simply being organised, a range of experts give their top money-saving tips

Been inspired sufficiently by the Chelsea Flower Show to go out into the garden? Then you’ve been enjoying some “horticultural therapy”. A growing number of GPs and healthcare professionals are “prescribing” gardening to improve their patients’ health. In fact, the benefits of just being able to see a green space from a window is said to be worth £300 per person per year to the economy.But what’s good for your health is not always healthy for your wallet, and gardening can be an expensive hobby. Estimates of the typical spend on gardens by UK households range from £123 a year to as much as £30,000 over your lifetime, according to research by Poundstretcher and Gardeningexpress.co.uk. We asked a range of experts to give us their top money-saving tips:

Get to know your garden
“A mistake most gardeners make when starting out is to buy lots of expensive plants without taking into consideration the requirements of each plant, which often results in a waste of money and effort,” says Veronica Perez Diaz, gardener for Better Bankside and Borough Market in south London. To avoid this, she recommends “getting to know your space” so you can identify sunny spots and plant accordingly.

Far from facing the truth, the US is telling new lies about Iraq
2015-05-25 03:05:20 (16 minutes ago) 
Politicians who claim they had no choice but to support the invasion are wrong. America got a war it wanted - even if it wasn’t what it expected

A couple of weeks ago, the Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush was asked in an interview with Fox News whether, knowing what he knows now, he would have invaded Iraq. It’s the kind of predictable question for which most people assumed he would have a coherent answer. They were wrong. Jeb blew it. “I would have [authorised the invasion],” he said. “And so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody. And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.”

For the next few days, as he was hammered from left and right, he flailed around like a four-star general in search of a plausible exit strategy. In a number of do-overs, he answered the same question with “I don’t know”, “I didn’t understand the question”, and “no” before finally falling back on the perennial Republican default of blaming everything on Barack Obama.

Armada: 12 Days To Save England review – a fascinating account of an epic event
2015-05-25 02:10:17 (1 hours ago) 

Dan Snow single-handedly saves England from the pesky Spanish. Plus a smashing documentary in Demolition: The Wrecking Crew

Summer, 1588, and England faces an overwhelming threat. We’re on the verge of invasion: this is Armada: 12 Days To Save England (BBC2, Sunday). Dan Snow strolls purposefully and Englishly along Albion’s white cliffs. It looks like he’s going to see those cheeky Spaniards off himself, hold a big manly hand up over the Channel and say: no way Jose. Or no way Felipe II, who was in charge at the time over there, when Elizabeth the Never Dunnit was on the throne here.

You can see what got Philip’s goatee about England; we were basically the Somalia of the day in terms of piracy, helped ourselves to anything that took our fancy, and rewarded our pirates with knighthoods. Plus Elizabeth had turned Phillip down years earlier, after making him wait a long time for an answer; hell hath no fury like a man spurned, as they say.
