A Brief History of the Farmer’s Almanac & Its Relevance in Climate Change

Starting in 1792 during George Washington’s first term as president, The Old Farmers Almanac has become the longest-running periodical in United States history. While it has had a variety of topics and contributors over the years, it is primarily known for its weather predictions from a secret formula, witty humor, natural remedies, tides, a farming calendar, phenomena, helpful astronomy, and even lore. (An example of lore in this context would be to look out for puffy clouds on July 25th because that means we are in for lots of snow in the coming winter!)

The Basics of Microdosing

Microdosing

Microdosing has become a common phrase throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
