Pioneer School, Clark, WY
Memories from my childhood are full of ... time outdoors, playing softball at the park near my home, following the adventures of Sergeant Preston and his good dog Yukon on the radio, dinners at a table talking to family, playing Monopoly with friends and family. Simple pleasures that necessitated face to face socializing with friends. We used pencils, paper and crayons in school, had recess each day. I looked forward to dodge ball with classmates and minimal adult direction. We knew the rules, they were simple and we usually played well together. We almost always settled our conflicts at recess and the park without adult intervention. I think the adults who once attended the Pioneer School in Clark, Wyoming may have similar memories. This morning I read an article about what is called The Great Recession. My (our) world has become more complex since my childhood. We now have opportunity to invest in mind boggling array of sophisticated financial services brought to us instantly via our electronically wired and creative bankers. Every school I now visit is full of similar electronic devices, Smart Boards have replaced chalk boards, millions of dollars are spent on connections to the world wide web and any information that can be imagined. Kids are wired to each other and their social networks, can sit for hours with hand held tools that enable them to avoid each other and activity outdoors. Training to be skilled bankers and good consumers. I believe these are unhealthy kids with access to way too much information, instant on line conversations via “txting”, instant messaging and inability to resolve social conflict learned during activities like dodge ball. I believe the kids who once attended Pioneer School were happier and healthier and a lot less affluent. I miss those days and fear for the kids attending the really wired schools where they can avoid sweating and conversations while staying connected to their friends on line. And I know ... I am able to post my photos and rants on line, digitally, reach friends and fans with ease .... and awareness of the irony.
Branston - biomass boiler
Branston Ltd Branston has pioneered a fully integrated system for waste management and sustainability. Food waste from their new prepared foods factory and ‘outgrade’ potatoes from the main potato packing factory are fed in to an anaerobic digestion plant. It saves around 40per cent on electricity at the site - a 20per cent reduction in carbon. Water is recycled through a biomembrane reactor. This has reduced water consumption by 60per cent and has significantly reduced the quantity and improved the quality of effluent leaving the site. Waste potato boxes and pallets, which would otherwise be taken off-site for disposal, are used as fuel in a biomass heating system. All part of the EMS: plastic, paper and cardboard are recycled and the fresh potato packaging supplied to retailers is 100per cent recyclable. The company invests in regular thermal imaging surveys and has successfully encouraged many of its potato growers to use the service to improve their coldstores.
