Because the issues are bigger than the candidates.

Not that it matters who wins anyways... but maybe this will help you know who you should be voting for.
This short test can tell exactly where you align.

There are moments in our lives which we used to celebrate. I remember when a new album from one of my favorite bands would be released and there was an automatic heed to the call of this new sound. The enthusiasm I felt as each new song played and I thought of what it meant to me and others. The monotony of life can try to dull this blade but I have decided that it's essential to keep it sharp.

Therefore, Radiohead's new album, A Moon Shaped Pool is now out. Although it isn't my favorite, I'm excited none the less.

With the solstice rapidly approaching, the holiday season is in full swing. While there are tons of seasonal beers I could talk about, e.g. Sam Smith's Winter Welcome... I've got a hold of what I'm calling the best pale ale on the market: Ballast Point Grunion.

Ballast Point of San Diego boasts some well accomplished IPAs mixed with fruit (something I stray away from unless it's a lambic) available. However, they excel at the very fundamental that makes a brewery successful, a simple pale ale. Notes of pine, citrus and herbs from the American Mosaic & Calypso hops are mixed perfectly for this modest brew. Not overly powerful in bitterness or gravity, this beer exemplifies what one would want when searching for a pale ale. Aggressive yet balanced hops with a medium-light maltiness. While I'm more than happy to keep staples like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Dale's Pale Ale as a standby, I will be even happier to keep Grunion in my fridge as a first option for this category.

Apparently, sunflowers have their own circadian rhythms. I figured the leaves on the stalk helped tell the sunflower where to move but Stacey Harmer of UC Davis says otherwise.

"Even though they don't sleep, many plants have 'clock genes' similar to those that direct the sleep-wake cycle in animals. For years, Harmer had been looking for a link between those genes and the release of a hormone called auxin, which controls stem growth."
Sunflowers have circadian rhythms, scientists say — and a growth trick that helps them keep their faces toward the sun.

Do we need all these lights on at night? The night sky is a beautiful sight to behold but it's unfortunate so many people aren't aware of this.
Researchers have compiled a detailed worldwide atlas documenting artificial light in the night sky worldwide.

Many people have lost sight of nature. I remember we used to see loads of beautiful stars. Now it is much harder to see them.

This might be the best place in Richmond to eat and it brings in sorely needed culture as well. Fantastic naan with amazing chutneys to start. The menu is very diverse with many classic favorites. I had the curry goat and was I ever pleased. I ordered it at a 10 for maximum heat and they managed to make it super hot without compromising the rest of the dish. Although I've promised myself never to return to Richmond, if I did, I would stop here again.

This is how I expect my burger to be. The fries were great too. I will definitely be returning for another. I've finally found a place in Bloomington that knows how to make a good burger.

This sushi is a great value for South Beach. The only reason they lose a star is because they gave me escolar, the snake mackerel. Too many sushi houses think it's ok to sell this fish and I guess, we the consumer, let them. If you don't know why you shouldn't eat it, I suggest you do a search of it. I'll still go back but I'll try to make sure I don't end up with "white tuna" (escloar)

For basically a college bar and grill. The beer battered haddock is really good. I went during the offseason in July so I'm sure things are pretty wired during school time. There are lots of local taps available in this multi monitered sports bar. I'd go back for the fish any day though.

I only go here for the massive quantities of dim sum and it is all fantastic. I just wish I could eat more because I don't visit often enough. The trick is to get there earlier so you don't have to wait for a table, the tell-tale sign of a good place to eat. Parking isn't the best unless you want to pay by the hour, but it's not far from downtown and to be expected.

I'm not a Cuban cuisine expert but I am quite the foodie. There is nothing bad I can say about my visit to Padrino's but I guarantee it is where I will visit next time I am in Miami. I had the lunch buffet and sampled as much as I could, maybe more than I should have - the food is just awesome. I highly recommend a eating here if you are in the area.

I tried the falafel sandwich with some babaganoush. While the falafel was alright, I didn't feel that the seasoning for everything else was done so well. The hummus tasted pasty and plain. It might have been recovered by some tahini but it was forgotten in my order. Pickled vegetables had barely a trace of acidity (which might have helped the hummus as well). This lack of acid carried over into the babaganoush. There were hints of roastiness but it wasn't the smokey kind which I expected. I really wish that the inclusion of lemon were something they did to help open one's pallatte. Perhaps using some sumac on their purees would make them tastier. Overall I felt the food lacked authenticity and proper seasoning.
