NASSAU COUNTY, NY, USA, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Micah Raskin, a professional poker player and local philanthropist, loves to garden. “You wouldn’t think it to look at me,” laughs Raskin, “but it’s a passion of mine. I love to be outside, and I love to watch things grow. There are few things more satisfying than nurturing life in the quiet of nature.”

And other than putting delicious veggies and fruits on the table or decorating your home with lovely flowers, gardening offers a variety of benefits both physical and mental for those who enjoy it.

Get Your Vitamin D With Gardening Says Micah Raskin

Vitamin D increases levels of calcium in your body, which helps your immune system function better and makes your bones stronger. Studies have found that exposure to sunlight increases vitamin D levels in adults, and gardening is – usually – an outdoor, daylight activity.

“Being outside always gives my mood an instant boost,” says Micah Raskin. “And when you live in New York City, a little extra greenery and sunlight can keep you sane.” Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen and sunglasses so you don’t damage your skin or your eyes!

Gardening Decreases Your Risk of Dementia Says Micah Raskin

A study from 2006 found that gardening lowers your risk of dementia by 36%. More than 2,800 people over the age of 60 were tracked by researchers for 16 years. The study concluded that physical activity – and gardening in particular – reduced the risk of developing dementia in future years.

“It doesn’t surprise me a bit,” says Micah Raskin. “When you’re gardening, your mind is at rest – you’re much more mindful of your surroundings and your actions. I know mindfulness and meditation are also recommended to stave off dementia. Gardening is my favorite form of meditation.”

Micah Raskin Says Gardening is Great Exercise

“Obviously there are all kinds of gardens,” says Micah Raskin. “But no matter how large or small your garden is, you’re going to have to do a little physical labor to take care of it.”

From lifting bags of soil to bending over and reaching to weed, gardening is a surprisingly physical activity for most people. You may not even realize that you’re breaking a sweat as you become absorbed in what you’re doing says Micah Raskin, a long-time gardener.

“Pulling weeds, hoeing the ground, digging holes, lifting tools and plants, bending and twisting to reach – it’s all really great exercise. You may not realize it at the time, but you’ll be able to tell you were exercising when you wake up in the morning,” chuckles Micah Raskin. Gardening can work new muscles and help improve your stamina, flexibility, and strength.

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The supporters of Animal Wellness Action have truly made a difference for our iconic American wild horses and burros in the past few weeks. Many of you read several of our most recent blogs regarding the BLM’s Draconian plan to roundup horses and burros on public lands and turn them into captives, and you took action and told Congress to do something about it. Your efforts, and that piece, sparked ABC News Live to run a national story on the issue, and then we pursued an $11 million amendment to a major House spending bill that included annual funding for the Department of the Interior and its Bureau of Land Management.

The amendment directs the BLM to use those dollars to implement humane fertility control within the wild horse and burro populations. Using the funding for Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP) would prevent the money from being utilized for inhumane helicopter roundups, mass holding of horses in government-run facilities, and highly invasive and painful surgical sterilization in the field, often conducted in sweltering heat. Each horse in government holding costs the taxpayer $1,600 per year, and even the BLM Acting Director William Perry Pendley has said the agency’s massive round-up plans would cost $5 billion. We can save a mountain of cash, during our national emergency, by applying fertility control in the field and keeping horses and burros on the range. A dose of PZP costs $30, and there is an army of volunteers ready to work with BLM and pitch in.

U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., a “knight in shining armor” for the horses in Congress, stepped up in a big way by leading the effort to fund PZP, and was joined by Republicans and Democrats from all over the U.S., including many western states where the wild horses reside: Reps. Dina Titus, D-Nev., Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., Joe Neguse, D-Colo., Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Penn, David Schweikert, R-Ariz., David Price D-N.C., Peter King, R-N.Y., Deb Haaland, D-N.M., John Katko, R-N.Y., Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., and Ben McAdams, D-Utah. Rep. Titus gave a gripping speech in front of the House Rules Committee. Cohen himself may have said it best regarding the amendment that “will force the Bureau of Land Management to move away from cruel and costly helicopter roundups toward humane management of these national symbols of our wild lands.”

And Cohen didn’t stop pushing for horse protections with those in the wild; he also lead another amendment that require $750,000 be utilized by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) to complete an audit by July 31, 2021 of USDA’s Horse Protection Program, enforcement of the Horse Protection Act, and Slaughter Horse Transport Program. The last audit was completed in 2010 and clearly detailed the ineffectiveness of the USDA’s Horse Protection Program that has failed to end the practice of soring — the intentional infliction of pain to Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle horses feet and limbs to achieve an artificial high-step known as the “big lick” that’s rewarded at prized events in Tennessee and throughout the Southeastern U.S. That audit should prove to be a valuable tool in our efforts to end the soring and to permanently outlaw horse slaughter in the U.S.

Far too many bureaucrats at USDA have been lax in regulating these inhumane practices. Like the PZP effort, that second amendment passed overwhelmingly by a voice vote and was cosponsored by Reps. Fitzpatrick, R-Penn., Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., Kurt Schrader, D-Oregon, Ron Estes, R-Kan., Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, Peter King, R-N.Y., Tony Cardenas D-Calif., Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., and John Katko, R-N.Y.

Cohen’s colleague, Joe Neguse, also stepped up and led an amendment that provides OIG with $1,000,000 in funding to enforce animal cruelty laws to crackdown on cockfighting, bestiality, and animal crushing. Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Madeleine Dean, D-Penn., Posey, Fitzpatrick, Cohen, Estes, Cardenas, King, Ann Kuster, D-N.H., McAdams, and Tim Burchett, R-Tenn co-sponsored that amendment that also passed the House by voice vote.

And in addition to this funding, the base bill we all jumped in to amend doubled USDA’s Horse Protection Program’s budget from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 for 2021, a provision pushed by Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., for a program that had never had more than $700,000 before last year. It also included language that urges the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture — whomever that may be in 2021 — to implement a 2017 regulation that would eliminate the use of large stacked shoes and ankle chains used in the soring of horses to exacerbate the pain. In a one-two punch back in 2017, President Obama’s Administration had failed to publish the final rule, and President Trump’s team prevented it from moving forward in the new Administration.

U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, R-Ky., championed an amendment to the spending package that easily passed, providing $5 million to the Veteran’s Affairs Administration for equine assisted therapy to help our American heroes who’ve suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Those who’ve served our country will rest easier with the help of horses who may have otherwise ended up in the slaughter pipeline.

And last night, Neguse stepped up again and ushered to passage an Animal Wellness-backed $1 million amendment that provides the U.S. Department of Justice funding to help create and Animal Cruelty Crimes Unit that would enforce the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act that President Trump signed into law last November, and other anti-cruelty laws that not been properly exercised. This comes on the heels of Animal Wellness’ recent cockfighting investigations in Oklahoma, Alabama, and Tennessee that revealed terrible multi-million dollar shipments of gamecocks to Guam, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. Territories. Neguse was joined in this effort by Gaetz, Fitzpatrick, Ben McAdams, Bill Posey, Cohen, Cardenas, Jamie Raskin, D-Md., Katko, Titus, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., and Schrader.

These are very important gains in the House, and now we need to replicate them in the Senate. We owe much of this success to you, the supporters of AWA, and we applaud each of you along with Cohen, Neguse, and the Members of Congress who championed and supported these measures. We need you to help out one more time by taking action here asking your Senators to do their part to protect the animals we all care so deeply about.

Weiner and Watts: Will Gen Z Vote or Have They Lost Faith from Inaction on Police, Climate, Health, Guns, Women

Robert Weiner

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Former White House Drug Policy spokesman Robert Weiner and policy analyst Kyra Watts have published an article in OpEdNews (ranked H1 as #1 op-ed in the nation) asking whether or not Generation Z will turn out to the polls in November. They assert, as their title asks, “The key question for Election 2020 is, will Generation Z vote or have they lost faith from inaction and opposition on police reform, climate change, health, gun control and women? Do they see hope in changes at the top– at the White House and the Senate? What about elections at every local level?”

Weiner and Watts begin, “According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the 2018 election saw a 79% increase in voter turnout among people ages 18 to 29 years old compared to the 2014 congressional elections. This is a major improvement over the traditional non-participation by young voters. We're constantly questioning why younger generations are lacking enthusiasm when it comes to voting. Big challenges remain. Generation Z, those born between 1995-2015, has experienced many traumatic instances, whether directly or indirectly, throughout the years. Just to name a few:

· The Columbine School Shooting (1999)

· 9/11 (2001)

· The Great Recession (2007-2009)

· The Trayvon Martin Shooting (2012)

· The Sand Hook Elementary School Shooting (2012)

· The killing of Eric Garner (2014)

· The Parkland School Shooting (2018)

· The COVID-19 Pandemic (2020)

· The killing of George Floyd (2020)

· Black Lives Matter Protests (2020)”

They continue, “All of these events were nationally broadcast and many sparked reactions all over the country, some violent, some not. The evolution of our nation's technology has blessed us with the ability to share information in seconds from just about anywhere in the world, but this blessing is bittersweet. With that ability came the recurring reminder of all of the tragedies that were taking place in this country during such a short time period.”

They write, “How can we expect the country's young people to want to be involved when they've witnessed or been made aware of such tragic events and never saw any action-based ramifications? They see people their age dying due to gun violence from other kids, adults and even police officers, but then they see their government officials and police arguing for keeping choke holds and immunity the same. How can we expect them to believe that the government is truly for the people if they feel like they haven't experienced it?”

They contend, “We have to encourage a look at our American History. There have always been laws in this country and not all citizens agreed with the laws in place, but they didn't just sit back and stay silent. There were protests. Citizens used these protests to seek attention from their government and to express their concerns.”

They explain, “In 1773, American colonists dumped 342 chests of tea into the Boston Harbor to protest ‘taxation without representation’. We know this as the Boston Tea Party. In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. led the March on Washington for jobs and freedom to draw attention to the racial discrimination of African Americans in this country. In 1993, roughly 800,000 people gathered to march for LGBTQ Rights in Washington, D.C. In 2003, millions of people marched in cities across the world to protest President George W. Bush's decision to invade Iraq.

They go on, “We've always had to make adjustments to legislation because we as Americans are constantly evolving, but the one thing that hasn't changed is the effective method of protesting. Our voices are louder together than they are separate. We see that now with the clear power to draw attention to everything going on in this country.”

They point out, “People's voices are finally being heard — not because no one was listening, but because everyone started speaking out together. Citizens of this country need to start utilizing our first amendment rights more often, not less, despite the White House brutality against protesters from Lafayette Park to the streets of Portland, Oregon – and from Black Lives Matter to March for our Lives against mass murders in schools.”

They continue, “We are the ones that have to live and work in this country. Why not fight for what we want with the tools that we have? We have our voices and the right to vote. Those two shouldn't be taken lightly, because together they can both help evoke change throughout this country. But we can't put all of the responsibility on the people. Our government needs to continue to listen and make changes for the betterment of our nation for all of our citizens.”

They contend, “Protestors are calling for social reform. Since the Black Lives Matter protests that began earlier this year, confederate monuments are being taken down all over the country, companies are taking a stance and speaking out in support, police reform has taken some baby steps and officers have been arrested for the murder of George Floyd. This is only the beginning.”

Weiner and Watts conclude, “The message of the great, just departed John Lewis, who strongly supported the Constitutional amendment giving youth the vote as well as full voting rights for all minorities, was persistence. We can continue to make this country a better place for ourselves and generations to come, but we have to be willing to put in the work if we the people want to continue to see results.”

2020 Top Solar Contractors

2020 Top Solar Contractors

Solar Power World magazine’s annual list includes Lake Mary-based solar installer

This is a great representation of the growth of the solar industry and our team is working hard to provide homeowners with reliable, affordable, sustainable energy through cutting edge solar systems.”

— Lindsay Latre, CEO of SunPower by esaSolar

LAKE MARY, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Solar photovoltaic system installation is a sustainable way to reduce consumer energy costs while providing power with from a sustainable resource, helping to reduce greenhouse gases from fossil fuels. In these times it adds a sense of security to be able to take control of energy costs. The solar industry is growing and performing well. As it continues to promote the industry, Solar Power World has recognized the efforts of solar contractors across the United States in its 2020 Top Solar Contractors list. Florida-based SunPower by esaSolar achieved a rank of 76 out of 205 rooftop solar installers.

The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers big and small. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service (developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, installation subcontractors, rooftop installers), markets and states.

"The Solar Power World team is so pleased to highlight more than 400 companies on the 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, especially during this unprecedented time," said Kelsey Misbrener, senior editor of Solar Power World. "All contractors featured on the 2020 list reported strong 2019 installation numbers and are continuing to stand tall this year."

This year’s collection of over 400 Top Solar Contractors is facing obstacles that this industry has never seen before. The first quarter of 2020 was the country’s biggest ever, with 3.6 GW of new solar capacity added. But COVID-19 impacts showed their force in Q2, and Wood Mackenzie is forecasting residential and non-residential markets will see 25% and 38% decreases in year-over-year installation volumes this year. In light of social distancing best practices, SunPower by esaSolar has continued to consult, plan and install solar system using contactless methods, helping hundreds of Florida homeowners reduce their energy costs.

In addition to persevering through this turbulent time in history, the 2020 class of Top Solar Contractors is continuing to innovate by adding energy storage to their offerings. Over one-third of this year’s contractors are also featured on the exclusive 2020 Top Solar + Storage Installers list. SunPower by esaSolar was ranked 68th having completed 253.5 storage kWh installed.

SunPower by esaSolar employs 55 team members who helped to install over 2.7 MW of solar power in 2019. Since its founding over 10 years ago, the company has installed 636.8 MW of solar. In 2020, SunPower by esaSolar also opened an office in Modesto California to meet the growing demand for residential and commercial solar services in California.

A New Bed For A Changed Earth

Three Quarter View of King Size Horizontal Bed

Horizontal Button Bed in Lina 100% Italian Linen

Heroic View of Bed

The Horizontal Button Bed

Lina Button Fitted Sheet

Lina Linen Button Fitted Sheet

The Need For Major Changes To The Bed Industry Is Urgent

Design today has to consider all the stakeholders and deliver beautiful, safe, and long lasting solutions. Horizontal is a complete solution for sleeping well in the time of Climate Breakdown.”

— Len Laycock

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — After two and a half years of research, development, and testing, Vancouver based Horizontal Sleep is introducing a new, patented sleeping system, intentionally designed to exceed all other bed environmental and health standards. While almost beds are made with petroleum, polymers, plastics, chemicals, coils and carbon, HORIZONTAL is completely different. The new bed/mattress is 99.8% biodegradable, made with replaceable parts, and designed to last a human lifetime. These changes, all in one product, are revolutionary.


The Bed and Mattress Industry is a major source of toxic pollution caused by near total reliance on petroleum ingredients. In recent years, bed waste has exploded due to a combination of much shorter product replacement cycles and marketing gimmicks. The Bed Industry, through the Better Sleep Council, the plethora of bed-in-a-box concepts, and large mattress chains, now makes beds intended to last less time than ever before. Product warranties are shorter and product returns have quadrupled. In the United States, nearly 10 billion pounds of mattress/bed waste is discarded every year. From 2010 to 2015 bed/mattress waste increased by 66% and it is accelerating. Western countries are now so overwhelmed, bed/mattress waste is surreptitiously exported worldwide by container to poor countries for dumping. The Bed Industry takes nearly no responsibility for the health and environmental catastrophe it has created. The scale, scope and impacts are revealed in Why Casper Wave Makes Me Seasick.

Horizontal Sleep’s breakthrough design is a decisive solution to the alarming increase in toxic mattress and bed waste. Horizontal proves toxic beds can be eliminated, and illnesses induced by environmental harm can be vastly reduced. Horizontal’s positive impact will be felt well beyond the bedroom. Horizontal aims to significantly reduce or eliminate exposure to petrochemical based plastic products and the shadowy fire retardants that fill our homes and characterize our petroleum-soaked lifestyles.


By introducing Four Biophilic Design Standards to consumer product design, Horizontal redefines what is acceptable for human health and environmental safety in the bedroom. Horizontal Sleep’s founder Len Laycock says, “Design today has to consider all the stakeholders and deliver beautiful, safe, and long lasting solutions. Horizontal is a complete solution for sleeping well in the time of Climate Breakdown.”. Laycock explains that Horizontal innovates on four needed product attributes:


The presence of DNA in our materials confirms they are: 1) Created by biological processes, 2) Already a design approved by Nature, 3) Contain valuable nutrients for future life, 4) Safely biodegrade, and 5) Are not toxic petrochemicals.

Horizontal aims to end consumer 'throwawayism’. Replaceable parts extend product longevity and anticipate future innovations. The Right to Repair supports the economic and environmental security of all people. The company’s eco-engineering and natural material choices make planned obsolescence, obsolete!


Would you throw away a bicycle because it had a flat tire? Of course not. With Climate Breakdown upon us, all consumer products must be re-thought and re-conceived to reduce carbon and last much longer. If consumption does not decrease, reducing carbon and methane emissions will be impossible. We have to live with less, and live with better. A well-made bed that can be maintained and restored all of your life means Horizontal may be the last bed you ever purchase.


The Horizontal bed is so well made its comfort compares favourably to far more expensive beds like Duxiana, Hastens and Naturepedic. Unlike almost all beds, its design is minimalist, focused on optimal spine alignment and superior air flow up from below the bed. All materials are natural, carefully vetted for health, and there are no metal parts. New innovative bedding makes it easier and faster to make the bed, with unique fitted sheets that simply button in place, and stay in place. Horizontal is a complete sleeping system that lowers the entry price for eco-luxury, and by virtue of its longevity, actually costs less than lower priced beds over a lifetime of restful sleep.


Horizontal is a consumer product technology startup dedicated to reducing consumption and solving problems caused by Climate Breakdown, of which sleep is one. The well-being, health and environmental safety of humans, their happiness, the protection of wild life and wild spaces, the integrity of Earth’s air, water and soil are all inter-dependent parts of one whole. In this 21st century, you cannot sustain any one of these without sustaining the others. Our business model considers all of these as our stakeholders.

Horizontal has developed special expertise in the fields of natural material solutions, industrial design, manufacturing, marketing and sleep. The company has nurtured a network of technical resources to support its goals, including a successful association with University of British Columbia Wood Sciences Faculty and an international network extending to Europe, Asia and the United States. Horizontal Sleep Ltd was founded by Len Laycock, former Marketing Director of IKEA, an entrepreneur, environmentalist and lover of good sleep.

As a Farmer and Farm-to-Table Advocate, Steve Buchanan Omaha Gives Insight to Support Farmers in This Movement

Steve Buchanan from Omaha, Nebraska, a farmer and farm-to-table advocate, gives insight to support farmers in this movement

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Farming in the United States is typically an overlooked and under-appreciated career. Many people do not realize the importance of our farmers in bringing food to our tables and restaurants. When you can simply walk into a grocery store or supermarket instead of having to grow and gather your own produce or butcher meat, this important part of how these groceries became available is easily forgotten about.

Born and raised in Nebraska, Steve Buchanan Omaha has spent most of his life outside on his family farm. As a farmer, Steve Buchanan Omaha knows the importance of caring for his animals and tending to his crops every day, rain or shine. This is also a huge reason why Steve Buchanan Omaha is an advocate for the growing farm to table movement, which supports local farmers in your area and all that they do to provide quality and delicious food.

Why Farm to Table?

Farm to table is very important when considering sustainability, as well as supporting your local community. With more local and organic food from farmers in your area, you will not only have a more healthy diet, but you will also help boost your local economy, which is a win-win for everyone involved.
As a local farmer and health nut, Steve Buchanan Omaha always makes sure that what he is growing and tending to on his farm to serve other people is top quality produce, meat, and dairy that he would provide to his family as well.
Farm to table ultimately helps the environment, your health, and your local community. That is why Steve Buchanan Omaha is so passionate about this movement.

Supporting Farmers & the Farm to Table Movement

As Steve Buchanan Omaha says, "Farmers do what they do to not only provide for their own family but for their community, too. By supporting your local farmers, you are giving them job security, letting your area's local crops provide what you need in your diet, and most likely getting healthier food rather than the over-processed produce coming from farms further away, while helping sustainability and our environment in the long run."

As a true health nut, Steve Buchanan Omaha provides local restaurants with fresh, healthy food from his farm on a regular basis. His goal is to provide more families with fresh produce and healthy meals.

Steve Buchanan Omaha notes that supporting your local farmers and the farm to table movement is more simple than you'd think. By purchasing fresh produce from your local farmer's market on a regular basis, rather than buying in bulk at the grocery store, as well as choosing restaurants that use local ingredients in their dishes, you can easily make a difference in your life, your local farmers' lives, and in your community.
