"Business: The Engine of Dominion" by Dr. Patti Amsden
Scripture presents God as the Creator of all things and the Owner of the Earth. As seen within the creation narrative, God fashioned mankind in His image and appointed humanity to care for the earth as God’s chosen representatives (Ps. 115:16). Man’s commission for earthly custodianship can be found in Genesis 1:26-28, which is called the Dominion Mandate and which gives man authority to rule and charges him with responsibility to make the earth productive, fruitful and developed.
In exercising earthly administration, each individual has private property to manage. That property might include a skill set, intellectual capital, time, and earthly assets. For example, a man may be a farmer with knowledge of agricultural laws and land to be cultivated. He has options as to how he facilitates his management. That famer may elect to use his land to produce all that he and his family might need to support life; or that farmer might become specialized, thus focusing his efforts to produce only one commodity and then barter with other specialized farmers to acquire all that he and his family might need to support life. Earthly labors to yield productivity fulfill the commission of the Dominion Mandate whether the work is done individually or collectively. To read the entire article, click here

"Construction and Demolition Debris, Quarries and Ground Water" by Joyce Geiler
Lawmakers and environmentalists from parts of Illinois that rely on groundwater want tougher monitoring of porous rock quarries that are being reclaimed by filling them with construction waste, saying they want to regulate them to make sure drinking water doesn't become contaminated with toxins.
Lawmakers in limestone-rich Will County want to require groundwater monitoring around rock quarries that accept broken concrete and other debris from construction and demolition. Limestone is a type of porous rock that allows groundwater to filter through, potentially picking up contaminants that might be present. Although opponents say groundwater testing would be expensive, Dean Olson, director of the resource recovery and energy division for the Will County Land Use Department, said based on his experience, drilling a monitoring well costs just over $2,000 and each time sampling of water is done, the cost is less than $500.
