Compared with Seattle (or Vancouver ), Vienna’s housing is much denser: the city is mostly apartments and lacks even one acre of single-family zoning. At the same time, its parks and open space are four times as ample, covering half of the city . And its development process is both more streamlined and more participatory. Most housing is developed through competitions among developers, judged by committees of experts based on a set of criteria. Among these criteria are social cohesion and integration (to make racial, nationality, and class disparities matter less), environmental sustainability , beauty , and community . Because Vienna’s dense, walkable neighborhoods mix incomes, nationalities, and races, they provide more equitable access than Cascadian cities to parks and public spaces, public schools and libraries, and job openings: the Viennese housing market does not ration opportunity the way Cascadia’s housing market does.
Generally, shelled animals—including mussels, clams, urchins and starfish—are going to have trouble building their shells in more acidic water, just like the corals. Mussels and oysters are expected to grow less shell by 25 percent and 10 percent respectively by the end of the century. Urchins and starfish aren’t as well studied, but they build their shell-like parts from high-magnesium calcite , a type of calcium carbonate that dissolves even more quickly than the aragonite form of calcium carbonate that corals use. This means a weaker shell for these organisms, increasing the chance of being crushed or eaten.
I'm sure science will find out more about fibroid causes, especially as more and more women get into science. I eat a vegetarian diet, drink mostly water, I like to juice. Each time I water fast, something unhealthy/processed drops from my diet. I DID notice that when I added in certain processed or junky foods, my fibroid growth would accelerate and my PCOS symptoms worsened (can you say hirsutism?). Since I've fasted since childhood, I'm ready to include rounds of dry fasting with my water fasting. I've been reading a rough Russian translation about dry fasting (they do not fear fasting like many do here) and a lot of it makes sense when compared to my own experiences. Dry fasting is way more intense because without water, fibroids cannot live long. Fat cells are incinerated in a way, as well as growth and tumors. I am my own guinea pig and have only had positive results. (I don't advise it to inexperienced fasters, nor people who have clogged their body with toxic foods their entire lives...the body needs a pure diet of real food first). One of the most amazing thing was how I began growing skin tags as my PCOS/fibroids got worse. With one of my last water fasts, all but one of my skin tags fell off. I look forward to seeing what happens next!
