Using MLS to look for land.

From The Archives: 2008 It is on days like this, where the snow is half a foot thick, that I wonder why I'm in British Columbia. A long growing season is a major factor in finding land, if you not limiting yourself to where your looking. British Columbia has the longest growing season in Canada, it's climate is moderate, and there is plenty of rain to boot. However, good top soil is hard to come by, on the sunshine coast it literally has to be imported. The rocky surface does not a good garden make. Canada has a multi listing service for real estate that covers all of Canada, it has recently been upgraded to selective searches for different types of land use, including raw land, and agriculture use. If you use a tabbed browser like firefox, you can run two searches on two different provinces side by side to compare what is available in each, and get an idea of what is similar and different. I've been comparing Ontario to British Columbia, and to be honest there really isn't any comparison. Ontario is where it is at if you want have a farm, or even raw land. For example, I created a really basic search for the two provinces, which included searching the entire province, not a given area that I would move to, I choose the Agricultural tab in each tab, and limited not by location in the provinces but by price ($0 - $500,000), Land Size (19 126) acres and nothing else ...

What is SEED?

From The Archives: 2003 The first question people ask about SEED is common ownership of the land, and sharing of incomes etc. When we answer , they ask us why we call ourselves a commune. Here is the answer ... Most communes are income-sharing communities, SEED is not. The best way to express the financial end of SEED is to say we are a cost-reducing community. Yes, we do have industries on SEED, some of which are shared income, but they are not the center point of the budget like in other communes. S.E.E.D. stands for Self-Efficient-Ecologically-Dependant. We do grow our own food, and attempt to get completely off-the-Grid. But the land is privately owned by the original members who fronted the start up costs. Guests help pay for the operating costs by paying an equal share of the budget balance, and are encouraged to save towards starting their own SEED. Guests are told that their stay is temporary, their purpose in joining a SEED is to start their own. SEED communes are micro-communes. Successful SEEDs in the past have been small, usually with one to three families starting a new SEED. They are also temporary in their operation as a stepping stone for others. Eventually SEEDs close their doors to guests, usually after a few new SEEDs have been successfully started by previous guests. SEEDs are not based on a religious or political, ideals. All are welcome, however there is an understanding that SEED is not the place for ...

UK: Lessons to learn from a 40,000 fine for a mishandled subject access request.
Background
The UK’s privacy regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”), has issued a GP practice with a fine of 40,000 for unlawfully disclosing the personal data of two individuals in response to a data subject access request (“SAR”) from a third person. In its public statement on the enforcement action, the ICO criticised the practice for not having adequate systems or training in place to ensure that its staff were equipped to deal with SARs properly.
A SAR is a request under section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998 for, amongst other things, the personal data of the requester which is held by the organisation ...
