Food has to be a sustainable solution that all nations face as a critical need.  The way we produce food will undoubtedly be the difference between health and the lack of health.  Those who are seeking new grow methods for food are important to the health and life continuum.  The work of  “New Houweling’s greenhouse demonstrates sustainable technology partnership” with private and public concerns may repurpose the tomato.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and Houweling’s Tomatoes announced that the company will build a new, environmentally friendly greenhouse tomato farm in Juab County that will create more than 280 new jobs. The Utah facility will employ state of the art climate control and sustainability technology. It will be heated with waste heat from a nearby natural gas fired electrical generation facility, enabling Houweling to operate with a very low carbon footprint. Additionally, the facility will utilize waste CO2 off the generators stack to provide CO2 fertilization to tomato crops. PacifiCorp Energy is the owner/operator of the Currant Creek Power Plant, and Rocky Mountain Power will be supplying the electricity for Houweling’s operations,” reports Fresh Plaza.

As we consider the importance of food grow, development and harvest it has to be a sustainable solution. The demand for healthy foods to meet growing population demands will have to engage in a tipping point where there will be a demand or surplus for food based on environment or population.

The emphasis on collaboration and partnerships to solve world problems may be one step to solving hunger and health concerns.  Further, innovation and collaboration can produce the needed jobs in developing sciences.  The work of Casey can be a win in agriculture.

Techweek #Chicago presented by #Microsoft was a huge success! We are already planning for 2015 so get involved below now! CHICAGO/June 22-28, 2015 Who comes to #Techweek? #CEOs, #entrepreneurs, #innovators, and #dreamers meet at Techweek http://landsdssustainable.com/2015/05/07/techweek-in-june-coming-soon/ I heard a powerful story yesterday about the lives of #Veterans suffering in silence with #PTSD. The term is said so regularly that it can be over used while minimizing the trauma and impact on the lives of our soldiers. The article “How PTSD Became a Problem Far Beyond the Battlefield“ I support is worth reading. The article illuminates the lives of our service people from the point of view of a #soldier.  http://landsdssustainable.com/2015/05/08/the-lives-of-soldiers-from-sebastian-junger/ The profound impact of social media is continually discussed. The ability to produce content by indexed writers can be captured and read less than a minute. The news of the #JossWhedon dropping Twitter will drive tweets across many platforms. For those who do not know Joss Whedon? Here his resume he is the “founder of Mutant Enemy Productions.
Smart and successful #socialmedia users need to understand the impact of words and #content. The ability to talk does not means you should. The ability to abstract yourself from the tone and tenure of a dialogue is hard and complex.

So when people feel the pain of social media kicking back it is hard to defend and stop. As fast as you comment and another surge of content is posted. It starts by thinking of your content before you push “SEND”.
When you “SEND” you might have to defend!  http://landsdssustainable.com/2015/05/05/tesla-electric-in-used-car-sales/ The electric car becomes more accessible, Tesla the high price electric answer to acquiring their car. Tesls is now in the used car market. Now think electric! #Tesla used car is still mid-to-high end in price. The information from “Tesla is now selling used #electric cars for lower prices” is a step toward expanding the Tesla owner. This is a new organizational model for expansion and promoting electrics.  http://landsdssustainable.com/2015/05/05/tesla-electric-in-used-car-sales/
