More children are “growing up godless” than at any other time in our nation's history. They are the offspring of an expanding secular population that includes a relatively new and burgeoning category of Americans called the “Nones,” so nicknamed because they identified themselves as believing in “nothing in particular” in a 2012 study by the Pew Research Center .

Consider that at the worst point in the Great Depression unemployment averaged 25% nationally and at the worst point in the last recession it was 10%.
Vox.com
A new poll shows Americans (as well as people worldwide) wildly overestimate their country's unemployment rate.

I can’t tell you how I became pro-vaccine without first telling you how I became anti-vaccine. When my oldest daughter was about four months old, I discovered “crunchy” parenting. I entered a world full of cloth diapers, “intactivism,” and home birth. I made a lot of new friends who shared my beliefs about peaceful attachment […]

Dave Navarro is one of the bevy of celebrities appearing in PSAs about domestic violence for the "No More" campaign, spearheaded by "Law and Order: SVU" star Mariska Hargitay. In a HuffPost Live interview Monday, Navarro opened up...

Strong evidence that police deliberately ruled this as a suicide while ignoring anything that pointed to homicide, including signs of a beating and clothing items not belonging to victim.
There were no other swings to act as a step, and nothing the 17-year black teen, Lennon Lacy, could have stood on to hang the noose, then kick away.

Someone in the federal government needs to step in with force to stop this abusive and lazy policing.

Naked, I stood at the closet doors with the lights on and made myself ready. I took a deep breath and positioned the mirrors so I could see all of me. I consciously worked to remove my self-believed inner image. I opened my eyes and looked very caref...

Story
Tagline
My two main characteristics are insatiable curiosity and stubbornness.
Introduction
Essayist, contributor at Synchronized Chaos, body image educator, domestic violence survivor, mother of 2 & grandma of 3. Married to David Grassi McDaniels. I write about body image, violence against women, poverty and class issues, racism and various progressive issues. I also enjoy cooking and sometimes post recipes or links to recipes at Livejournal and Facebook. If more friends join google plus I may do so here as well. I run a recipe group on Facebook.I'm a vegetarian but not a preachy one. I'm old enough to know not everyone is going to give up meat but I encourage people to find sources other than factory farmed meat and to reduce consumption so animals are no longer living in crowded pens and feedlots. Meatless Mondays are a start.
Bragging rights
I won multiple scholarships while in college and got my BA in Anthropology while raising my two kids, I was a student senator at Cabrillo college and a peer counselor at the Women's Center, started the forum gaudiya-repercussions.com for former members of the Hare Krishna movement, helped found the Body Image Task Force and was assistant Chair, edited an early online 'zine called Uppity Women at labyris.com/Uppity/ still available in archived pages.

My husband brought home a loaf of bread last night from this store, "Old Home Wheat Bread." I opened it up later that evening and the bread was dry and hard and moldy, from the first slice all the way through the loaf. It was past its sell by date (Feb 9). Trying to get them on the phone and it's perpetually busy. Hoping to get a refund. Not a great first experience so far but if they refund us I'll feel better about them. It's conveniently by the medical center so if you need something after an appointment you can stop by. He says it's a mom and pop store so I'm rooting for them to do better about going through their stock in the future.
