People were/are the vehicle. Power, patriarchy and privilege were/are the fuel. #religion  
Those adhering to the world's major religions often share the story of how they found their religion. But they didn't find their religion. It found them.

Do you know? #Education  
Most universities in the United States could not open their doors without cheap adjunct labor. But where do those adjuncts go when the system breaks them?

True anywhere, but geared to those traveling to or working from #Thailand  
Some farang (ฝรั่ง) in Thailand, when they see a fellow farang, want to absolutely bombard them with their English.

Vulnerable populations should be protected through research rather than from research. #IRPFellows

We must find a way to work around franken-pharma and do it through private money I think. Can't wait for the governments of the world to help. I think this is not top on their list.

I've probably been to Horn O Plenty ten times at this point and can honestly say that it's my favorite restaurant in Pennsylvania. I say this as a foodie who has traveled all over the world and all over Pennsylvania (my home state), as a person who tries to be a socially conscious consumer, and as a person who realizes the importance of the Slow Food Movement, particularly in Pennsylvania. The owners, Jeff and Mandi, are as knowledgeable, hardworking and compassionate as they come. And the food is spectacular - the attention to detail, the creative mixed with the traditional, the way the menu changes twice daily depending on what's been harvested. Find a way to get there if you can; it's worth the experience. Good for earth, good for body.
