“These hempcrete blocks are a green building material made with a hemp-lime insulation mixture packed around a biocomposite structural frame. They can be stacked like bricks to build walls up to 30 feet high and they become the insulation and the structure of the building. All you need to do after the walls are built is plaster the inside and outside, and then add windows, doors, and a roof!

The hemp plant sequesters carbon during its growth, and lime, as it dries, reabsorbs the carbon that was released when it was manufactured, which means the hemp-lime mixture is carbon negative (it sequesters more carbon than it creates in its life cycle). Terry Radford from Just BioFiber says that these hempcrete blocks will sequester about 10 tons of carbon per house.

Just BioFiber is located in Alberta, Canada and you can find out more about their hempcrete blocks here:

Not only is this an environmentally friendly building material, it also creates a comfortable living space. The hempcrete helps to regulate temperature and humidity, it reduces noise transmission through the walls, it’s fire-resistant, and it’s non-toxic.

This is an incredible green building technology and we can’t wait to see Just BioFiber ramp up their block production so that we can start to see hempcrete buildings popping up all over the world.

Thanks for watching!

“I thought I would do a bit of a deep dive to find out the reasons the church is giving to explain why so many people are no longer attending church. I look at answers from pastors and apologists. From they just want to sin, to they never really believed in the first place, to because evolution, we see how similar a lot of responses from mostly old dudes are.

I also give my thoughts on why this is happening.”

“WASHINGTON – Singaporean blogger Amos Yee was sentenced by a US court on Thursday (Dec 2) to six years in jail, after he pleaded guilty to two charges of child pornography and grooming.

Yee, 23, was also ordered by the Chicago court not to contact the victim, who was then 14 years old, for two years after his release from jail.

Yee had also faced 16 other child pornography-related charges, which were dismissed as part of a plea deal he accepted.

According to the first charge of child pornography, Yee solicited, persuaded and induced the victim to appear on video and other mediums and pose, which involved lewd behaviour, between February and July in 2019.

The charge, a class one felony and second-most serious type of offence under Illinois criminal law, carried a prison sentence of at least four years and up to 15 years.

According to the second charge of grooming, Yee knowingly used WhatsApp to seduce, solicit and lure the victim to pose for photographs, which he distributed on WhatsApp, over the same period.

That charge had a minimum jail term of one year and a maximum of three years.

Yee, who appeared in court via video link, was advised by Judge Carol Howard that pleading guilty to the charges meant he could be deported, denied admission to the US, or denied naturalisation as a US citizen in the future.

The convictions could also affect his ability to obtain housing, employment and other licences, including a driver’s licence, she added.

Yee, who wore a surgical face mask and orange prison jumpsuit, replied that he understood.

Yee, who spent most of the hearing replying to questions with yes or no answers, declined to speak when the judge asked if he had anything to say before she imposed his sentence.

The judge, as well as his public defender, both wished him luck at the end of the hearing, which lasted about 20 minutes.

Yee was 20 at the time of his offences, and living in Cook County, Chicago.”

This happened about a week ago…So, I should acknowledge it.

I guess they didn’t consider Amos to be a big enough fish, and allowed him to dodge a whole lot of years with a plea deal.

Not exactly a nice ending…but I figured it would be a lot worse.
