Yes. I know you’re lookinsg at me, going ‘what! Two chapters in one week! Are you feeling ok?” ye s I’m fine thanks for asking but I just got my school laptop and I realised a great way to procrastinate at school, is to write more BIH chapters. Lol, the teachers have no idea!!! BTW school holidays start today, so I’m hoping for at least two chapters in the next two weeks. It should be pretty close to finishing anyway. Ok so, slight warning here. Lime ahead, not too graphic though, so don’t worry. I also have some jobs for you guys at the bottom if you’re interested. I don’t know why I bother though; you’re not reading this one ;). Enjoy. AL L DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN VAMPIRE ACADEMY, ETHAN OR TASHA, OR ANY OTHER WORKS BY RICHELLE MEAD, SHE OWNS THEM. I OWN A SHIT LENOVO SCHOOL LAPTOP THAT HAS EVERY WEBSITE OF ANY KIND OF INTEREST BLOCKED UNTIL I FINISH SCHOOL. Confessions KA T NE In the end, after Tasha had recovered from her tears, they occupied the small sofa in the front room of their cell. For a long time, Tasha lost count of how long, they just held each other. Her chest against his back, his strong arms wrapped around her lithe body, her hands holding delicately but deceptively sturdy onto his arms. While she had recovered from the tears, her fears still ran rampant in her mind. What if he doesn’t love me anymore, what if the only reason he is doing this is out of pity, what if he can’t stand me anymore, what if he hates me. What if, what if, what if. If she wasn’t so concerned that what her mind was telling her was true, she would probably be laughing at herself. Oh, how she wished she could laugh right now, to chuckle away her problems like leaves in the wind. If only, her insides, right now, felt like sawdust. “Ethan”‐ “Tasha”‐ It was the first time either of them had spoken, yet somehow they had chosen to speak at the exact same time. Maybe that was how in tune they really were. While she never recalled them actually finishing each other’s sentences, to Tasha at least, it had always felt as if Ethan was in her mind, as if she knew exactly what he was thinking, and she had little doubt he did too. It was always there. “Tasha, love, you go first.” Ethan said, nuzzling the side of neck. Like every time he touched her, she felt the left side of her neck burst into flames before settling into a dull spark when his lips moved on. She never got used to the feeling. Tasha had spent all of her adolescence not believing in a connection or feeling as such an even when she did, she never really wanted it anyway. Now she was berating herself for not wanting it, believing in it. She knew how foolish it was, but part of her couldn’t help but hope that if she had, she could have found Ethan earlier, and maybe the two of them wouldn’t be in this mess, stuck in a cell, knowing the next time they would leave, it would be to visit their death. She sighed, she felt troubled, but she knew Ethan would listen to her struggles. As selfish as it sounded, it was still true, he was still Ethan. “I’m sorry, you know.” she started, she heard him snicker behind her but she kept going. There was no stopping her, not today. “If there was any way to get you out of here, so only I would die, and you would live, I would use it. Even if it meant going back in time and never meeting you. Never talking to you or saying your name.” and as she said it, she meant every word. Because a world where Ethan was safe from her from everyone and everything, was better than a world where he would die for loving her. KA T NE AL L “Tasha, you know”‐ “No, Ethan, listen please love, I”‐ she started to cry again, God, what was with her today. She had never been this emotional in her life, not when her parents told her she couldn’t have a dog when she was six, not when her brother and sister‐in‐law died. She wiped away the traitor tears threatening her composure as she distractedly thought of how strange it was that everything to do with her mental health seemed to come back to Lucas and Moira. When Tasha thought she had smeared away all of her tears, she only started crying again, harder than before. Worried she might have scared off Ethan, she looked to him for reassurance. Seeing the worry, the love, in his eyes she tried to continue through her sobs. “Because I would much rather never meet you at all, as horrible as it sounds, than”‐ and here was where she broke down harder, but determined as she was, she only continued. “I mean, then I could… never hurt… you. Never use… you… like i… did… Everything that… has happened… to you in… the last… few months… is because of me. I asked for… your help. I got you locked up. I… I…” She had so much more to say to him, so much to beg for, but Tasha was interrupted by Ethan pulling her around to face him, then the feel of his lips on hers. As distraught as she was at this moment, she couldn’t help but be distracted by the feel of his smooth lips moving in sync with hers, fitting perfectly with hers as if they were made for each other. Like with every kiss, she couldn’t help but feel as if her and Ethan’s souls merged some. Sure there were times where it truly happened, as if she couldn’t tell the difference between her and Ethan, when they were making love, for instance, where the feeling was so intense, she thought she was going to collapse, but during times like this, it was if the two of them were trying hard to reach that level on a kiss alone. As if they were trying to broadcast their souls like a radio station, trying hard to get the other to so desperately believe what they are trying to say. She could almost feel what Ethan was trying to say to her. “Forget it, Tash. Don’t worry. I love you.” And although she realised it could have been her subconscious telling her what she so desperately needed to hear, she believed every single word of it. Frantic as she was to prove her forgiveness, to give so much more, she straddled his legs with hers, hauled her body as close as she could towards his. Their lips crashed together at an anxious pace now. Tasha felt as if his hands were everywhere, her back, her shoulders, her legs, her hips. She felt lightheaded already but she couldn’t finish this yet by passing out now. She owed Ethan so much still. Not just her body, or her mind, her heart. Her heart. OK so the aforementioned jobs. Hmmm Banner maker. Nothing to serious, just a chance to muck around & have fun, show how you see Tasha and Ethan. Seriously knock yourself out.

Woodstock 1 Hydroponics: The Way of the Future The term hydroponics is considered by many, in this day and age, as a way of growing marijuana. Hydroponics, however, is not just used for growing marijuana, but can be used to grow and produce salad greens, lettuces and culinary herbs. In fact, hydroponics is a relatively new term for growing plants without the use of soil. In the book Hyrdoponics: The Complete Guide to Gardening Without Soil by Dudley Harris, he says the term hydroponics is derived from two Greek words “hydro” meaning water and “ponos” meaning “labour.” Howard M. Resh the writer of Hydroponic Food Production points out, “The hanging gardens of Babylon, the floating gardens of the Aztecs of Mexico, and those of the Chinese were a form of “hydroponic culture” (1). This shows that even though the term is new, the practice of hydroponics has been in use for hundreds of years. Resh’s book also tells us that the term itself was coined by W.F. Gericke of the University of California after he started using nonsoil farming on a commercial scale for his experiments (2). Resh helps us clearly define what hydroponics is: Hydroponics can be defined as the science of growing plants without the use of soil, but by the use of an inert medium, such as gravel, sand, peat, Vermiculite, pumice, perlite, coco coir, sawdust, rice hulls, or other such substrates, to which is added a nutrient solution containing all the essential elements needed by a plant for its normal growth and development (2). Glenn Collins, a journalist for the New York Times, interviewed Dr. Giacomell i, a hydroponic designer who is a professor of agricultural engineering at the University of Arizona said that hydroponics done on a commercial scale with large greenhouses, special lighting, and takes quite Woodstock 2 a bit of technical sophistication. Many modern hydroponic farms use rooftop weather stations to monitor wind, rain, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide and light intensity. There are also irrigation pumps, greenhouse vents, exhaust fans, gable shutters and shade curtains (Collins). With the use of hydroponics, societies can produce more food with less impact on natural resources, thus helping preserve the land. However, the quality, and start up costs of hydroponic food have become a subject of controversy. Despite some objections, misunderstandings and stigmas, hydroponics is clearly the way of the future and a smarter, more productive way to farm. In the United States, traditional farming is mainly used for the growing of produce, due to the large amount of land the United States has. According to “How Is Land in the United States Used?” around 450 million acres of land out of the 2.3 billion acres are being used for crop farming, which is about two percent of all the land in the United States (Nickerson). With populations growing the world is in need of more food. Giving up two percent of our land for the necessity of food production seems like a small price to pay, but for places like the United Kingdom and Japan, there is dramatically less space for traditional farming. Infact, according to Nations Encyclopedias Website, Japan is only 93.3 million acres in total. As a solution, a company in Japan, Shigeharu Shimamura’s Indoor Farm, has an entire hydroponic factory dedicated to growing lettuce. According to the Smithsonian website, this company grows 10,000 heads of lettuce a day all year round (Palus). That is 3,650,000 heads of lettuce a year. This was done on a 25,000 square foot factory, which is little less than one acre (Palus). The 2014 USDA crop yield count states the average yield for lettuce on an acre of land is 63,000 heads of l ettuce a year. This means that the hydroponic company has a 59% higher yield in the year of 2014. In this Woodstock 3 way Shigeharu Shimamura’s Indoor Farm, and all hydroponic farms, are making more food for the world's population, while also using less room. If the world’s farmers switched solely to hydroponics they would only need about five million acres of land instead of the 450 million to produce the same amount of yield. This is an astounding difference. With such results lots of scepticism also come into play. Why are the numbers so different? To find out why look back to W.F. Gericke of the University of California. Gericke started using hydroponics, to begin with, for experiments (Resh). As a scientist Gericke knew his experiment needed a “control”. The “control” for Gericke was the environment. Using hydroponics, growers are able to start growing indoors. which means there needs to be an artificial sun for the plants to receive light. Shigeharu Shimamura’s Indoor Farm uses vertically stacked LED lights (Palus). This, with the invention of air conditioning creates a steady, consistent, and pest free environment for the plants to grow all year round . Traditional Farming can produce one or two harvests a year, but for hydroponic companies like Shigeharu Shimamura’s Indoor Farm, they can harvest every day. Thus, farmers can produce food all year round. Dr. Giacomelli said “We are all subject to limit ed resources on this planet and we need to make greater efforts to feed more people with fewer and fewer resources”(Collins). What better way to do this then with hydroponics. Hydropincos has ten times higher yields according to Collins. Infact, there are many traditional farmers that are now using the hydroponic methods, including drip irrigation and constantfeed formulas to extend their growing season and use less water. Traditional farmers have learned with water levels dropping, they need to preserve more water. Collins goes as far as to say that the reason why traditional farmers are using hydroponic Woodstock 4 methods is because it uses one tenth of the water dirt farming does. Babstita, writer of the article “ Water Use Efficiency in Hydroponics and Aquaponics”, says that with some systems you can even use up to twenty times less water than dirt gardening and fifty times less water than irrigation methods. The reason why hydroponics uses so much less water is because farmers are able to recycle all the water that the plants do not use. In an academic article where the land, water, and energy requirements of hydroponics were compared to those of conventional agriculture by example of lettuce production in Yuma, Arizona it is stated that 70% of the word’s withdrawn freshwater is devoted to agriculture (Barbosa et al). The article states that lettuce is the main crop grown in the U.S. and a substantial portion of that production (approximately 29% in 2012) occurs in Arizona, primarily in Yuma. Since Arizona devotes approximately 69% of its current freshwater withdrawals to agriculture, the authors felt an investigation into hydroponic alternatives could be beneficial in reducing the strain on water resources in such regions. It found that there was 2.7 times less water demand in hydroponic production compared to conventional production (Barbosa et al). It i s clear that with how much less land and water hydroponics uses, farmers could make some big leaps on the problems that are being caused by global warming and droughts throughout the United States and the world. Infact, DSU professor of Biology, Cristian Edwards, who has a Masters in Ornithology, and also works at the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources as the Wildlife Biologist, when posed the question of what he would do with an extra 445 million acres of land for hydroponics, said, I would suggest multiple methods of habitat restoration or enhancement over the majority of the land. A habitat left alone will usually produce maximum resources (i.e. Woodstock 5 food, shelter, water, space) for that ecosystem. To keep our planet happy, we need to preserve wilderness and try to maintain healthy ecosystems. I think us humans would benefit greatly if crop land returned to its natural, wild habitat. With the remaining freed up land I would suggest two things. First, create and maintain plots of land for research purposes only. Areas that could duplicate natural communities and be used for scientific experiments and learning. Second, use the open land to construct tree farms, hatcheries, and nature preserves to act as refuge populations for threatened or endangered species. With discussions happening in Paris, and global warming on the rise, many would consider that Mr. Edwards is correct in that the human race would benefit while keeping our planet happy by switching to hydroponics. Many worry about the nutritional value, and taste of hydroponically produced plants. With such high yield, and so much water being saved the question of quantity over quality comes into discussion. Sarah, the writer of “Organic Hydroponics? Not for Me” goes as far as to say, “organic hydroponics is not nutrient dense food and is basically a waste of money.” Resh points out that “plants are comprised of 8095% water, depending on the plant.” Does this mean that because hydroponics uses so much less water that these plants will not be able to grow to their full potential? The short answer is no. When using hydroponics the roots come into direct contact with the water. which means the roots system can be much smaller, but still be able to take all the water it needs. All the water that the plant does not use is then drawn back into a reservoir tank until the next watering cycle (Babstita). The gardener can rest assured that their plants are getting all the water they need. The only reason why hydroponics uses less water is because it is recycled. Resh goes on to say, “the 205% that isn’t water is about 90% Carbon, Oxygen,
