"Time To Choose," the new doc by Charles Ferguson, shows that there is a way to arrest climate change. We need to act now and show the moral and political will to get the job done. "Ferguson traveled to five continents to tell the stories of how average people are impacted."
In the new documentary Time To Choose, director Charles Ferguson posits that there is a way to change the trajectory of climate change. The tools for arresting a dismal future are already in play, being pushed forward by innovators and thinkers who recognize the pressing...

The Kochs are busy trying to push uranium mining at the entryway to the Grand Canyon. President Obama needs to make the “greater” Grand Canyon a national monument. The +Grand Canyon Trust is pushing back.
As summer approaches and American families plan vacations, one of the top spots for travel consideration is the majestic Grand Canyon. President Teddy Roosevelt, considered the “conservationist” president, declared the Grand Canyon a monument in 1908. It was made a national park in 1919 by...

Via +Ravishly  : Australian psychologist Honor Jane Newman looks at how women suffer from perfectionism and resulting anxiety. Aside from tips on how to change behavior she validates that societal expectations are part of the problem.
“You are exactly where you need to be, doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing and everything in your life has led you up to this point.”
The premise Newman puts forth is that being a perfectionist emanates from a core belief that either one is “not good enough… or that one is ‘unworthy.’” This can develop as a result of “parental criticism or parental indulgence (the latter being constant praise).”

In April, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center published findings in the journal of Environmental Health Perspectives that puts forth the premise that 16,000 premature births are “linked” to air pollution.
Read about a study that found that air pollution emanating from vehicles was tied to the increased possibility of women giving birth prematurely.

Can art born of unspeakable horrors express something other than the soul-scarring pain and trauma that forever mark its creator?

Prince Charles has moved to purge his foundations and private holdings of all fossil fuel assets. So has Leonardo DiCaprio, of Hollywood royalty. And if dealing with money makes you feel anxious, just know that the Rockefeller Brothers Fund has divested from fossil fuels and is proactively seeking solutions to climate change.
One of the big topics currently on the minds of those who are concerned about climate change – from college students to those planning for retirement – is how protect the health of the planet with money issues and economic safety. Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) recently put...

Yup. I wrote a letter to the Editor on the numerous store fronts just empty in the NW Bronx that landlords could collaborate with creatives to use for art studios and programs for the community.
There are so many stores that are empty, primarily due to escalating rents. Why not engage landlords in contributing something positive to the area where they own property?

+NARAL Pro-Choice America has put together a set of playing cards celebrating American women. They are also fighting the war of attrition from those in the anti-choice movement. Comments from @IlyseHogue about the new Oklahoma laws and the POTUS election.
When Donald Trump opened his mouth and announced that Hillary Clinton was “playing the woman card” in her quest for the presidency, he inspired plenty of reaction.

Story

Writer/Artist/Activist
Introduction
I come out of the visual arts, with over 20 years as a practicing artist. As a curator, I have focused on amplifying the voices of women, with an emphasis on diversity.

These activities led to a parallel career in writing, activism, and new media. My area of concentration is women's issues, culture, and human rights.

I co-founded CultureID, a platform to amplify the work of those in the arts creating culture with political intent and social content.

I can always depend on Keith to handle my issues with the utmost consideration....which can be tough since I am the original Princess and the Pea. The slightest thing can create an issue for my vision. He has always been patient with me, and sticks with me until I can see properly. I can't say enough about how important that is. Kudos all around!

Love this place. I'm new to Riverdale, and have become addicted to the chocolate, mocha, apricot cake. Carrot cake is good, unless you are on a diet. A box of the lacey cookies make a great gift! Still lots of items I want to try. I usually make a piece of cake last for several nights. This way I don't have to feel guilty. Service very friendly. Ask for Valentina. Tell her Marcia sent you!
