Conspiracies? Show us your sources, why don't you? Fringe huh? Are you claiming the theories he mentioned are absolutely baseless? Syria, the nazi kill list, the U.S. backed coup in Ukraine, the U.S. sabotaging the peace deal ukraine and russia negotiated earlier this year? Are you sure about that? A few other things... Roger Waters wasnt gish-galloping. Either you straight lied or you don't know what gish-galloping really is... smh. Criticizing the israel governments doesnt make someone antisemitic. Your bit about Roger occasionaly saying "the ukraine" instead of "Ukraine," damn, that was weird as fuck, man. You are grasping at straws. Mr. Ball.. you're an unimpressive journalist and a credulous purveyor of state propaganda. Also, you seem to have an exaggerated estimation of your intelligence and critical thinking skills... and youre quite a smug arse as well arent ya?! An arrogant idiot. smh. the worst.

Eric Clapton is an walking enigma. The man's stance along with Van Morrison on the public lockdown and vaccine mandate in The United Kingdom is confusing to say the least You would think he would want the best for his fan base when it comes to attending his live performances. I understand it is a matter of personal choice whether you cooperate with various local and government agencies mandates on attending large gatherings such as concerts. I have personally went along with these mandates in my home state of Oregon because it's the right thing to do to protect not only yourself but others as well to be able to see live music finally after a nearly two year absence of live shows. As far as his infamous 1976 performance meltdown, the only person who really knows the truth about what he said that day and if he truly feels that way is himself and over the years it's obvious he never will come clean about the subject.

By understanding how the soil processes that support plant growth and regulate environmental quality are affected by management practices, it is possible to design a crop and soil management system that improves and maintains soil health over time. This information is for farmers and gardeners who want to understand the physical, chemical, and biological components of healt Soil is a critical resource—the way in which it is managed can improve or degrade the quality of that resource. Soil is a complex ecosystem where living microorganisms and plant roots bind mineral particles and organic matter together into a dynamic structure that regulates water, air, and nutrients. In an agricultural context, soil health most often refers to the ability of the soil to sustain agricultural productivity and protect environmental resources. A healthy soil provides many functions that support nutrient cycling, bio plant pests Nutrients are found in two basic forms in the soil: organic and inorganic (

I can't believe they did not even mention Michael Jackson's supurb Super Bowl Performance. He set the bar for artists in the future. I don't think anyone has met it yet.
