"This, however, is very definition of privilege. If I pretend I don’t see color, if I insist that everyone in our country is given the same opportunities and held to the same standards of behavior, I am literally whitewashing the 500 years of history that got us to this moment." #ryanlochte #Rio2016 #Gold #Olympic #Record #simonebiles #racism #whiteprivilege #gabrielledouglas #mckaylamaroney #michaelphelps #slavery #500years #socialtightrope #alroker #billybush #mattlauer #latimes 
Dear Fellow White People: The 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games have brought to my attention that some of us still don’t quite grasp what white privilege is. Or, even if we do feel like we get the concept,…

I love good olive oil and I've lost 45 pounds since 2014 on low carbs. This is dismaying.
 
Your Olive Oil Is Almost Certainly Fake

Walk into your kitchen and pick up your bottle of olive oil. You know, that health-promoting nectar of Mediterranean age-defying prowess, lubricant of pasta, the only thing that makes your kale salad palatable? Yeah, that stuff is almost certainly not what you think it is.

That's because unless you've plucked your own olives from your own backyard grove and crushed the fruit and pressed the oil yourself, that slippery substance was likely cut, adulterated, and deceptively labeled before it reached the bottle in your hands.

Food fraud—or the act of deceiving consumers about a food or ingredient for the sake of profit—affects as much as 10 percent of the global food supply. Of all the instances of food fraud in the United States, according to a scholarly database tracking this very thing, olive oil leads the way, making up 16 percent of cases (followed by milk, honey, saffron, and orange juice).

One of the reasons oil is so often faked is that it's bottled before you use it, and it travels far before it lands on grocery store shelves. "If it's something you can't look at and easily recognize, it's more likely to be defrauded," Olmsted explains. The United States imports more olive oil than any other country, and yet regulations on the labeling of said oil are voluntary.

Aside from imparting rotten flavors and ripping people off, this fraud deprives people of the health benefits that may have prompted them to buy the oil in the first place: Fresh extra-virgin olive oil is high in the omega-3 fatty acids that may reduce the risk of heart disease. It's also low in saturated fat and contains antioxidants. "Bad oil isn't just a deception, it's a crime against public health," one Italian olive oil trade association president told Olmsted.

So what's the best way to avoid getting punked? Olmsted offers up some handy advice - see http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2016/08/olive-oil-fake-larry-olmsted-food-fraud-usda
Here are some tips on finding the real stuff.

I've just learned about another new White House initiative - #stateofwomen .  It's so exciting I've changed my cover photo to reflect one of the pledges. I think #michelleobama   is the loveliest person to live in the White House ever. I still adore Jackie O, but Michelle is now supreme royalty to me. She continues to astonish. Here's more on The United State of Women. You can make your pledge, too. #FirstLady #FLOTUS   #womensrights   #feminism   #humanrights  
There’s a lot that’s been done by and for women and girls, but there’s still plenty to do. Convened by the White House, this Summit will rally all of us together to celebrate what we’ve achieved, and how we’re going to take action moving forward. Covering key gender equality issues, we’ll make a powerful difference in our collective future.

Story
Tagline
I sell signed Faith Ringgold books.
Introduction
Grew up in the 1950s and 60s watching the world famous artist, Faith Ringgold create radical political art.  Traveled the world in the 1970s while attending college and graduate school.  Married, had Faith, Theodora, and Martha in between a couple of divorces in the 1980s while my famous sister, Dr. Michele Wallace created her radical body of literature.  I'm reinventing myself at 60 years old.  Look out world, here I come.
