Yes, this third-world concern is happening stateside. Help people in Detroit to get clean water.

Money talks. Let your money speak up for your wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers, and against dark age attempts to rule over their bodies.

It's really difficult to actually boycott them though. One of my Lolita friends on FB pointed out, if you buy something say at a handcraft fair, what if they have used HL products? You indirectly supported them. Plus with the 70 other companies who could profit from parts of goods you buy, voting with your dollar is not a truly effective way to make a change :(  Not directly supporting is the best we can do

There is only one way out of the student loan crisis - civil disobedience on a massive scale. Two reforms could bring a fair settlement to banks and borrowers alike. However, while fair, these reforms would cost the banks billions in receivables, whi...

And can we talk about how dapper as hell this guy is? Floral pants and yellow bow tie, and he is owning it!

This is wonderful! I loved Reading Rainbow as a child, and I hope to share that with my son. 
The show that taught us all how to read just made history. When LeVar Burton announced he'd be launching a Kickstarter campaign to bring his beloved children's series "Reading Rainbow" to the web, no one thought it would get this much a...

It's about time. Which breed is demonized when has always been a horrible fad. Pit bulls are just the newest in line. 
Pit bull advocates will hereby know July 1 as "Dog Breed Independence Day" in South Dakota. On Tuesday, a law goes into effect that stops localities in that state from regulating dogs by breed. Breed specific legislation -- or BSL, as t...

Made this last night. Success. I added a red bell pepper and doubled the mushrooms. Also used an extra couple of dashes of paprika because I am hooked on Penzy's smoked paprika. I also used a box of the 3 minute rotini noodles instead of waiting 20 minutes for elbow macaroni to cook. This makes a ton, so be ready for leftovers.

This is celebrity done right. They use the paparazzi to draw attention to issues that are more important than what they are wearing or doing in public. Good on them.

I loved the decor, and my husband and I considered the place for our wedding a couple of years ago. When we started with the planning and negotiations, there were more and more nickle-and-dime fees added on. We had a bakery that was a key part of our relationship, the place we went for treats when times were tough. We had our cake selected before my gown. I was informed that they had a baker that they did business with and if I wanted my own, I would be charged a plating fee that amounted to $3 a head, making it so I would have had to pay for my cake twice over just to bring it through the door, not for them to serve it, as it was a buffet. When I questioned this, they said it was standard "like most venues". We had researched many high-end halls, caterers and restaurants and had never seen one where a fee like that was applied unless they had their own bakery attached or unless they were cutting and serving the cake, so it is in fact not "like most venues". While we were perfectly happy to pay the rental, food, and alcohol prices, the additional fees were in danger of nickle-and-diming us out of the venue. When I mentioned I would also be interested in seeing an itemized list of what the thousand dollars in "service fees" included in a buffet dinner (little service involved) where we we already paying room, food, booze, valet, and management fees and more...they decided to avoid answering the question and instead play hardball and claim we had to decide then and there or someone else would get the date. We decided...and went to the Padleford instead. They were much more straightforward and a classier experience overall. We really did like this restaurant, and that is why we chose it as a possible wedding site, but the way this was bungled has kept us away ever since. Go there for lunch, they do have a lovely atmosphere and good food, but I would not plan on hosting an event there. Due to our experience and the reviews here, attitude seems to be a chronic problem there.

I cannot recommend them highly enough! My husband and I hosted our wedding reception with them. Their staff was extemely helpful, laid-back, and polite. They were clear and upfront about their very fair prices, and didn't try to gouge us with hidden fees and add-ons like many of the reception sites. The staff on the boat itself were courteous, and the food was very good, far better than we expected for a buffet-style service. We brought our own cake and cupcakes on, and they did not charge us an additional fee, and in fact seemed shocked that other venues would nickle-and-dime a wedding party like that. We had the casino package on the boat instead of the dance floor, and I highly recommend it. The staff at the tables was good at getting people involved and teaching people as they went. It was also the perfect icebreaker for a large group of people to get to know eachother and get talking....in fact, they're still talking, and raving about the reception. Thank you so much for the perfect location.

This place is pure heart. As a teenager in the '90s and a former barista, I remember the heyday of indie coffee shops, before there was a chain on every corner. This place hearkens back to those days, with it's unique style and cozy feel. If you are looking for a pretentious drink du-jour served by teenagers in aprons, this really isn't the place. That's not to say they won't do custom orders (I regularly order an extra-dirty chai). I'm just saying that unlike the chains, which hide the taste of their burnt beans with as many flavor syrups and whipped cream as possible, here you have coffee, pure and rich. Remember what real coffee tastes like? This is one of the only remaining independant shops that roasts their own beans. Dan's cold-press coffee is wonderfully strong and flavorful, a relief after drinking anemic iced-coffee elsewhere. They also function as a small co-op, offering farm-fresh milk, eggs, honey, cheese and ice-cream. The ice cream is wonderful! The real treasure of Polly's is the community. Among the regulars, you will find the most welcoming and kind-hearted crowd of people you could hope for. I met the regulars while I was pregnant with my son, and the support they have shown our little family has been truly heartwarming.

Fast service, and the friendliest delivery drivers I have ever had. This isn't anything fancy, this is straight-up Italian-American comfort food, and it is perfect in its honesty, like you're sneaking bites in someone's kitchen. They have a cheese pizza that even my carnivore husband loves. Why? Pure, simple, quality ingredients. With a lot of the chain pizza joints, you forget how much of a difference the simplest thing can make, like the texture of quaility cheese. They are not just for pizza either. I also recommend the chicken parmesan sandwich, the broasted chicken, the antipasto salad and the burgers. All of these come in portions that won't leave you hungry and usually leave us with leftovers for lunch the next day. Trust me, this is one of the little guys that you want to support, which explains why they have been around for over 40 years.

Golden's has a lot of potential, and the location is great. The reason I gave it a 3 is because it's right down the middle. The thing Golden's lacks is consistency. There are times I have gone and my salad was wonderful, with gorgeous presentation. There are other times that it was a bunch of lettuce and skimpy toppings tossed together. I have had the same luck with sandwiches, either wonderful or awful. Staff is either helpful or useless (and at least on one occassion, completely stoned). Like I said, it's about consistency. They need to take their best staff, who really are wonderful, and bring the rest up to those standards.

I have not been to any other department in the hospital, but their maternity care is top-notch. I had my child there after 26 hours of labor and an emergency cesarean. I was there for 6 days, and I had a private room that was comfortable and didn't feel like a stark and scary hospital. I had 6 people each day to care for me, a nurse and nurse's aide each shift. The staff is knowledgable and supportive. They are very baby-friendly, and my child roomed-in with me. I could order food from the menu 3 times a day, and it was actually quite good. They also had 24 hour visitation. With a long and scary labor like mine, some stress is expected. However, of the MANY nurses who attended me during that long time, I only had one that I did not get along with. Every single other one was like a kind auntie or sister, doing their best to keep me calm and comfortable. One even dimmed the lights and brought in an electric flickering candle for me to focus on and taped a cottonball of lavender oil by my head to soothe me. They never made my husband feel excluded, and he was there with me throughout it all. When a relative arrived in the late-night early-morning for support, they didn't bat an eye. A long labor followed by c-section was my nightmare scenario, and it was what happened. They took that terror and made it better. They understood the fear and addressed it. After my child not only failed to progress, but moved backwards, it was time for surgury. The staff mobilized quickly, and I had two at my head, talking me through it, calming me down and keeping me from panicking. I was offered a medication for sedation if needed, but they explained it would make me forget some of the experience. With these two women and my husband (who they allowed to watch), I did not need it. I'm glad I was alert, as they made the experience a happy one. In my first photo with my baby, curtain still up, as they are still stitching me up, I am smiling. Unlike other hospitals where the whisk the child away after a cesarean, here they let my husband help with the cleaning and measuring, and they brought my son right to me to start nursing and bonding before they even removed my placenta. The most nurturing nurse I could have asked for helped me to hold and position him, and after I was stitched up, we all went to my room, where she offered a wealth of information on how to care for him. There was no separation. This is how it should always be done. If I have another child, I would definitely like to have my same doctor and hospital.

As the owner of the Methuselah/Keith Richards of parrots, I have been going to this store ever since I adopted my celestial parrotlet around 2004. There is nobody I would trust more when it comes to bird advice. He is patient and very good at explaining things and getting right to the point. They also create their own feed blends on-site, and it is a far healthier and higher-quality mix than I have ever seen in any of the big-name pet stores, for a lower price, and with less filler that will just get thrown out of the dish. This charming little shop is a local business worth supporting.
