‘Avada Kedavra’ or the killing curse has been taken from the Armaic phrase “avra kehdabra” meaning ‘I will create as I speak’. Although J.K.Rowling has combined it with the latin ‘cadavra’ meaning dead bodies.
So Avada Kedavra stands for “I will create dead bodies as I speak “
And I thought it was a play on abracadabra

Just practice good, do good for others, without thinking of making yourself known so that you may gain reward. Really bring benefit to others, gaining nothing for yourself. This is the primary requisite for breaking free of attachments to the Self.

Organic Cob House
Written by Jennifer Heyns
It looks like the first little piggy may have had the right idea after all—he just needed to turn his straw house into one of cob.
Cob is a natural building material made of straw, clay, sand, pumice and water. Aside from the addition of pumice to make it lighter and more energy efficient, cob is a very old method of building.
This house is a great example of how creative architecture, mixed with modern technology, can turn an ancient building method into a comfortable, progressive home.
The house is unique in many ways, including how cob has been used to create the entire structure, both inside and out.
One of the coolest things about cob is that it requires no additional materials to finish the exterior or interior walls. On top of that, you can see how it’s also been used to form pockets, shelves and furniture as built-ins from room to room.
And check out the awesome skylight. A wooden roof tops the cob’s circular hut-like appearance, which would be completely ancient in style if it weren’t for the large void in the center that contains a specially-made skylight.
Curious where this fine eco-building is located? If you guessed NorthEastern Missouri, you’d be exactly correct (and probably cheating)!
This cob house is part of the Dancing Rabbit Eco-Village, a community to promote and help each other live a sustainable life, reduce one’s footprint and provide an environment for green building jobs and sustainable building internships.
In addition to cob, they stress using other sustainable building materials and living methods, such as living homes, rain-water harvesting systems, composting toilets, earth floors, living roofs, passive solar design and many other eco-friendly systems.
As you can see, their work is not only creative and amazing to look at, but also eco-friendly to the max.
