The benefit of growing sprouts in ONLY AIR is that there is no substrate to be contaminated after all sprouts have been collected and there is no substrate waste with horrible rotting smell. It also allows the consumption of mung beans as food without cooking. It requires only drinkable water but uses no fuel.

Growing sprouts in ONLY AIR is also suitable for preparing bean sprouts when sheltering in bunkers after nuclear disaster (to avoid consuming hot released, fast decaying radioactive alkaline Cesium and alkaline earth Strontium nuclei).

1. Growing beans into sprouts.

When beans grow into sprouts, they convert the highly compact stored energy and materials into small plants to continue the propagation of their genes.

The beans need a triggering signal before it enter into this process. In nature, a wrong starting time may mean extinction for the beans. The triggering happens in nature with beans falling into flood water or very wet soggy ground at the end of a rainy the season. After that the sprouts need drier soil to breath and grow. The sprouts will try to grab a substrate with their hairy roots and will grow vertically.

It is easier for human to consume sprouts than to consume the highly compact mung beans. This is the reason for growing sprouts from beans for consumption.

An additional benefit of eating sprouts from stored beans is the sprouts have plenty of Calcium and Potassium, which can supply the requirements of our bodies if we have to wait in nuclear shelters for the short term radioactive Cesium and Strontium nuclei to decay in the outside environment after a nuclear disaster. Mung beans are thus useful grains for short term food after nuclear disasters.

(According to Wikipedia, 100g of beans contain

Calcium 132 mg

Iron 6.74 mg

Magnesium 189 mg

Manganese 1.035 mg

Phosphorus 367 mg

Potassium 1246 mg

Zinc 2.68 mg).

2. Materials.

1a. Mung beans (uncooked and in good condition).

Remember that mung beans will increase in volume and in weight when they become sprouts and only a very small initial volume of beans will grow into a cupful of sprouts.

1b. Two identical clear plastic drink cups with their corresponding hemispherical dome lids.

3. Making the container for growing mung beans.

Make about 10 perforation holes on the bottom of one cup, enlarge them so that a fully filled cup of water can drip out of these holes in less than 10 seconds.

The second cup is to be fitted onto the outside of the first cup to control the flow of water through the perforations. To stop water from leaving the inner cup the second cup is slipped tightly on its outside. To drain water from the inside cup, the outside cup gradually loosened to let water drip into it from the inner cup, the outside cup is then emptied.

4. Soaking mung beans.

To make sprouts from mung beans, the beans must be first soaked in water until germination. The steps are in the following:

Place 3 layers of beans on the bottom of the inner cup.

Fill water until water surface is 1cm higher than the top layer of beans.

Fit the hemispherical lid on the cup (optional, to prevent spilling if the cup is knocked from its position).

The cup is left standing like that for about 12 hours to soak the beans until they germinate with a 2mm sprout on most of the beans.

Timing is NOW STARTED.

5. Growing sprouts from germinating beans.

Fill the inner cup with water to full capacity. The beans and sprout should be able to move freely in this water.

Loosen the outer cup to gradually and completely drain water from the inner cup.

Empty the outside cup and slip it back onto the inner cup.

Tumble (and also roll) the covered double layered cup to spread germinating beans on the side of the cup,

Lay the cup on a horizontal surface, with the rim resting about 10mm higher than the bottom.

Let the cup rest like that for 12 hour then repeat all the above steps of this section.

Sprouts can be seen growing bigger in each 12 hour period.

6. Results

Figure: A horizontal cup is almost full of sprouts after 30 hours (Top view of horizontal cup.). The cup is double layered, it is made up from a perforated one and another non-perforated one fitting tightly outside it.


Figure: Air-grown bean sprouts are ready for consumption after 30 hours. The double layered cup is standing upright without its lid.


After 30 hours, the horizontal cup is about 3/4-full with sprouts. It should be hold upright and filled with water for well grown sprouts to float to the top for the first harvesting. (Grown sprouts have lower specific gravity than beans and newly grown sprouts).

The cup containing unharvested beans and sprouts is then put through all steps of section 5 twice for another 24 hours. After that the horizontal cup is about 3/4-full with sprouts. It should be hold upright and filled with water for well grown sprouts to float to the top for the second harvesting.

The cup containing unharvested beans and sprouts is then put through all steps of section 5 twice for another 24 hours. After that the horizontal cup is about 3/4-full with sprouts. It should be hold upright and filled with water for well grown sprouts to float to the top for the third and also final harvesting.

All beans will grow into sprouts if the container have been effectively drained and tumbled (not rolled). Without tumbling, some beans may stick to the side of the cup and may remain under water for too long and may rot, creating horrible smell. Rolling is not effective in preventing rot of beans.

QE may be just another scam to steal national wealth.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia)

#treasury bonds #QE #quantitative #easing #scam #stealth

It has been a US policy of borrowing from bankers through Treasury bonds (the method is given in section 1). USA have thus been designed to be in a perpetual state of indebtedness to bond holder bankers. Quantitative Easing is an even more outrageous extension of that monopoly. This posting shows why.

1. Borrowing from the population.

(as previously posted in ref. [2], sect. 7)

We note that the US government regularly issues and has been using its own Fiat money. When the government wants to borrow X units of its fiat money from its citizens, it may have to conduct an “auction”.

It may offer to all of its people to give the government any each of their spare $90 now to receive $100 in 1 year time.

Too many of its citizens may accept the offer and the total amount of their money may far exceed the requirement of the government. If that is the case, it may next say No, not $90 anymore, but $91. The amount may goes up again until the acceptance has only about X units, the amount it requires.

Anti-corruption requires that the bidding process be public and transparent.

This is the idea of Treasury Bonds, or Government Debentures.

If the final auction price is $97 of current money for $100 of money in 1 year time then the Treasury Bond rate is (100-97)/97 or 3.1%.

It is a sad fact that currently Treasury bonds are only sold to a handful of bankers, the ordinary people have no access to the “auctions” of Treasury bonds. The treasury rate may thus be manipulated by some coalition of bankers to suit their agendas.

It has been US government practice to always keep the US in debt with Treasury bonds. It would be alright if the debts are to ordinary US citizen. However the debts are to only a handful of bankers. There has been no plan to ever free the US from debts to bankers.

2. US government could have and SHOULD borrow from ordinary citizen.

The establishments always defend their actions by saying that the auctions of treasury bonds involve billions of dollars and the parcels (chunks) cannot be practically made small for ordinary citizens. The argument may be valid prior to WW2 but became invalid after that time.

With the development of techniques for share sales on the Share Markets, the selling of IPO’s (Initial Public Offerings) worth of billions of dollars are common: People can buy shares in initial float of new companies worth of billions of dollars. Why cannot the Treasury organize IPO’s of Treasury Bonds ? The operating mechanism can be made exactly the same as for IPO’s of new companies. The share markets can easily handle Treasury Bond IPO’s.

Ordinary Americans should stand up and demand IPO’s for Treasury bonds, to take away the monopoly by bankers on Treasury bonds.

It has been US government practice to always keep the US in debt with Treasury bonds. It would be alright if the debts are to ordinary US citizen. However the debts are to only a handful of bankers. The indebtedness to a handful of bankers may threaten the democracy of the US and the bankers now has extended that monopoly into another scheme for skimming national wealth called Quantitative Easing.

3. Quantitative Easing.

Quantitative easing is an even more outrageous extension of the monopoly of bankers on Treasury bonds.

When the government wants to have more money circulated in the economy of the population, it can buy gold from the population so that the population keeps the money and the government keeps the gold for future resale. Beside gold the government can also buy infrastructures or services from the population.

But instead of doing that the US government carried out QE (Quantitative Easing) (see reference [7], [8]). This is what the government does in a QE (continuing with the example at the end of section 1):

The government now buy back the Treasury Bond at a price of nearly $100 from bankers a bond it has previously sold for $97.

So the government has sold to the bankers some treasury bond for $97 and bought back at nearly $100. The government lost money for nothing. That why US debt has ballooned up after Quantitative Easing. See reference [6] for the new level of debt.

The injection of money should have been done by government buying gold, infrastructures (including hiring people to build or maintain infrastructures) or services from the population.

 

Notes:

1. Reference [4] stated that “A central bank enacts quantitative easing by purchasing—without reference to the interest rate—a set quantity of bonds or other financial assets on financial markets from private financial institutions. .. QE does directly increase the broad money supply even without further bank lending.”

2. Since inflation has been targeted by the government to be 2% (see reference [5]), buying a 1 year bond at $100 is just buying $98 worth of good to be delivered after 1 year time. So paying $100 to buy back a 1 year bond of $100 is just giving away $2, and bankers will be happy to take that $2.

4. Conclusions.

Having PRIVATE Federal Reserve Banks, limiting sales of Treasury bonds to ONLY bankers, practicing obfuscated Quantitative Easing all look like plans to defraud Americans of their wealth and permanently enslave them with ever increasing debts to bankers.
