pH 7 is not too high for us humans, but it is relatively high for most soils, with the exception of desert soils, making calcium absorption into plants problematic in most soils.
rabbee: excuse me? the ph, of distilled water is 7. anything above ph 7 to 14 is alkaline, anything below it to 0 is acidic. and most plants, do not use calcium. when you burn plants, you end up with mostly potash left. and most plants, other than saline aquatic plants cannot tolerate chlorides. and even salt water plants, cannot grow in the great salt lake, or the dead sea.

Plant nutrients are usually categorized as primary, secondary, or trace nutrients. Calcium is secondary macronutrient. Secondary macronutrients are Ca, Mg, and S. Primary macronutrients are N,P, and K, and C,O, and H. Trace nutrients are metals and Cl.

I never said pH 7 was an ACID, what I said was that pH 7 was more ACIDIC than pH 8, and that most natural non desert soils are more acidic than that.

Calcium availability to plants is diminished as acidity increase I.E. less is available at pH 7.1 than at 7.5.

Maximum availability is at 7.5 and above.

In the social sciences, there is the argument between the idealists that believe that beliefs influence behavior and the materialists that believe that the physical influences beliefs.

I would have to say, like most things, the answer is somewhere in the middle, and/or depends on the situation.

No doubt beautiful interiors stimulate peoples sense of beauty. And that interior flow patterns matter. Supermarket placement of product is an art for that very reason. On the other hand, how much influence feng shui has is always debatable.

Are you not comfortable with the notion that God may reach out to peole differently, according to their needs? You tend to be more of theist, myself more of a panentheist. Perhaps the reason for this is more a reflection of developed personality than anything else.

Of course many religionists think that only they are right.

But what if they were. But for themselves only?

One could separate the technique from the ideology. The ideology often only exists to provide them with a sense of identity. Their identity. Not our identity.

I actually (kind of) agree with Joel with that one. Where I differ from our resident swami is that I dotn believe this possibility degrades the technology.

I disagree with Mr. Foxman.

Not so much about "Israeli control over the Senate" - much more about the shameless pandering of the right.

Good Morning all.

(I didn't view the sketch but my guess is it was funny..)

You should watch the sketch. It was dumb IMO. Though there was an interesting discussion on whether donkeys could really be fellated or not (Hughbe??).

If done better, it would of been offensive. In the greater picture, it does buy into stereotypes. But I think they bungled it by poor writing.

Many funny things are offensive to somebody. Often goes with the territory. Think Daily Show/Colbert/Bill Maher. And needless to say, it's all subjective.

Had it been funnier, it would have made it to air. God knows (!) enough of what does make it to air isn't too funny. I record SNL regularly and fast forward through about half of each episode.

I'll be waiting to hear Huggybear weigh in on the donkey question. He's our resident expert in such matters.

Well, offense aside,- Foxman says (and I agree) that the sketch "reinforces the pernicious notion of Jewish control over this government ... that Israel controls the Senate.". He goes on to make the point that a small segment of the population is likely to run with that.

I agree. Witness what out donkey loving islander does with our comments, or our resident paranoid libertarian.

Foxman is not arguing against free speech though - just wants people to understand the implications.

You get it. The Israel lovefest is about pandering to the right wing (and usually Christian) constituents. Not about Jewish control. But this stuff also feeds into the wackos, which isnt very helpful or particularly safe to the rest of us.

Ultimately though I think Stewart/Maher/Colbert would of pulled it off better.

Did you read the accounts of the Hagel hearing yesterday? Talk about out there.....see the NYTimes.

Bigots usually don't need much encouragement. Look at the birthers. They did that all on their own.

I just don't buy that an SNL skit is going to futher enrage the haters. The sketch was clearly skewering the GOP senators, not the Jewish/Israeli lobby. But we can disagree on that.

I found the sketch about as funny as the average SNL material these days, which is faint praise indeed.

And clearly I agree about Stewart/Colbert/Maher - I don't find myself fast forwarding through their shows.

I saw some of the Hagel hearings. Most folks think he did a lousy job. Not really sure I'm a fan of his though I agree with some of his ideas.

How do traditions serve as a tool to open up the consciousness and cause it to ascend into the higher planes?

I wonder which tradition can cause the individual's consciousness to awaken and merge with say the 4th plane of cosmic consciousness.

rabbee: nah do not believe, all that for a second. because of the differences of requirements, in acid and alkaline loving plants. and also the oxalic acid in plants. and a ph 7 cannot be more acid, it can only be less alkaline or less acidic because it is neutral to either. even though water, can be slightly acidic or alkaline as HOH or H2O. with distilled water, generally being a 0 balance with both HOH and H2O. a balance which can be disturbed, by the slightest addition, of even the absorbtion of air.

and you definatly will not find calcium in acid loving plants. so therefore this limits you to possibly arid or semi-arid regions with little rainfall. disreguarding any possible, human errant intervention. but all plants have a common requirement for, nitrogen, water, potassium, iron, phosphouous, CO2, in the proportions determined by the classes of specie. others may require, manganese, iodine, sulphur, magnesium, zinc. but i cannot even think, of any plant that requires calcium off hand. though you may find, lime or calcium hydroxide listed in soil conditioners for alkaline loving plants. you will not find it, as and additave in fertilizers for agriculture or comercial purposes.
