A LADY IN PHILADELPHIA USING HER OWN HOME BACKYARD TO GROW VEGETABLES
It looks like a regular house on a West Oak Lane residential street, unless you see the backyard.
"Nothing could be more wonderful than that, I get to feed my kids," said Pam Renninger, who designed an indoor growing garden on her land with her brother's assistance.
"And the corona virus struck, and we couldn't hydroponic something because we've had the process half broken. We just wanted to get the soil to raise vegetables and distribute with our neighbors," she stated.
Today Renninger plants a range of vegetables from cabbage, cucumber even tomatoes.
She does her sustainable planting, that is, she does not use any pesticides.
It includes economic gains, such as creating fertile land and mitigating the impacts of warming. She gathers her own rain water as well, and has begun composting for fertilizer.

Pennsylvania approves vote-by-mail but still the use is uncertain in general elections
The government in Pennsylvania tried to vote by mail last year, and it was a successful attempt, but it is still unclear that it will be utilized for presidential elections or not.
The researcher, Matt Barreto of UCLA's Voting Rights Project, told us in an interview: "We looked for three decades for all the instances of voter fraud. These have been tabulated and cataloged. We found that it's just not happening in a vote by mail."
Considering the present situation in the country due to Coronavirus, the demand for such elections had increased. This election could be conducted being at home and hence will keep people safe from interactions with the virus.
The primary elections in Pennsylvania and New Jersey had already been postponed due to sta at hone norms. In November, the general election will have a significant impact on the whole world since the last elections four years ago. No official declaration had been made regarding the mail-in option for general elections, but states are already using it for absentee voting.
According to Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, who manages elections, said that mail could be a very safe method for voting and reduces the chances of voter fraud.
The Heritage Foundation, a conservative organization, keeps the data for every instance of voter fraud in the United States.
Foundation holds 40 years of information in its database.
In such a long time and a vast number of the election, it had tallied 213 instances of voter fraud related to mail-in ballots.
