Letter: Salvage what’s usable before throwing away 22.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A home was recently torn down near my home in Murray. When the original owner built the home in the 1950s, he had marble imported from Italy for all the window sills in the house. When the home was demolished, all of this marble was smashed and sent to the landfill. In addition, the house had beautiful doors of natural birch wood and beautiful hardwood floors, all of which went to the landfill. We all live on this planet together. All resources are not renewable, and we all take the consequen...

West Valley City • Susan Powell had been missing less than a day, and her husband, Josh, had just returned home from what he said was a winter camping trip. Among those in front of his house waiting for him was Detective Ellis Maxwell. He approached Josh Powell’s minivan and began asking where Susan was. Maxwell remains on the case. But 4½ years after he asked Josh those first questions, Maxwell still doesn’t have any answers. “There’s no evidence to support what happened to her,” Maxwell sa...

Kirstie's Fill Your House For Free review a recycled programme about recycling 9.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The genius of this programme is that it capitalises on our current fetish for parsimony, while recycling the domestic makeover format from the last millennium As much as I adore Kirstie Allsopp and everything she stands for, I can't help worrying whether she's got what it takes to go it alone. For years, she and Phil Spencer were one of the greatest comedy double acts of British telly. She had hilarious fascistic snootyboots hauteur as she hectored the less privileged into buying glorified coal bunkers for 500k. He was her nice-but-dim, bald-but-buff foil with the aura of a newly redundant estate agent desperate to cut it in this TV-presenting rackjet. Together they were comedy gold. Kirstie without Phil is like Fern Britton without Phillip Schofield, like Abbott without Costello or like the Chuckle Brothers minus a chuckle. But now Kirstie has upcycled herself successfully as opinion-former, a kind of interior design and lifestyle Polly Toynbee even if her recent advice to young women to forgo ...

The house that 20,000 toothbrushes built 7.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Who needs boring bricks? The house of the future will be made of trouser legs, VHS tapes and blowtorched carpet tiles

Duncan Baker-Brown has seen the future of housing and it's rubbish. "It's a depressing fact," the architect says, "that for every five houses we build in the UK, the equivalent of one house in waste materials gets put into landfill." What makes that even worse is that much of it is still perfectly usable.

To prove the point, Baker-Brown and his students at the University of Brighton have just spent a year building a house almost entirely out of garbage. But is it the kind of place you might want to live in, or more like a strange hobbyist's trash-cave worthy of Stig of the Dump?
