My name is Lauren. I'm a 23-year-old girl living in NYC and I don't make trash. For real. No garbage bin, no landfill. Nada. I know what you are thinking. This girl must be a total hippie. Or a liar. Or she's not real. But I assure you, I am none of those things. Well, except for real. I didn't always live what some call a "zero waste" life...
Sorry about the quality, but there you have it. This video basically doesn't otherwise exist. Enjoy and share....

Madness - "Crazy" and Depression are two different things. Madness or Crazy were thought to be a gift bestowed upon individuals in Aboriginal societies. You have to be sort of mad to see god or the workings of the universe. Gurus (saddhus) are mad with the knowledge of god and their culture supports and even reveres them. Most of the Saints would have been thought mad by our standards. Madness or crazy that Robin Williams was talking about I can only IMAGINE what he meant -is the crazy that is the true Creative Spirit. The spirit that makes you act in spite of criticism, in spite of rules like gravity. I don't mean rules like laws - I mean rules like you can't fly. The crazy that comes from seeing the truth about life. The madness is the creative spark that it takes to turn this knowing of the true workings of god or the universe, this intuitive vision into art - funny, sad, poignant, inspirational, dirty, truthful art. Depression comes from the pressure of being constantly asked, chided, cajoled, ridiculed, forced to conform to the systems of the material world - the bigotry, the separateness, the fear. It goes directly against the truth that is real and tangible only to the artist. Depression is the weight of keeping your head in this world and your heart in the creative energies of the universe. Depression is the weight of knowing you can really fly but you are tethered to this reality. Depression comes from knowing that if you don't conform you will be isolated by and from our society (madhouses and asylums, psych-ward). There is no support or acceptance of those who fly outside the Norm. FLY in the face of it. And let those who don't get it try to figure it out later.
At a packed outdoor concert in Kansas City, the lead singer of grunge rock band, Staind, stopped mid-song when he noticed some of the crowd were sexually assaulting a young girl who had been crowd-surfing. The singer, Aaron Lewis, told the band to stop playing so he could make an announcement. As the crowd looked […]
In the post World War II era, achieving the American Dream entailed owning a large, detached home in the suburbs with a bright green lawn and a car… or three. Urban centers in the United States were perceived as places to go for work or to pass through.

Is this the "American Way"? Do we as Canadians support this inequity for workers in our country by foreign corporations? I'd say it's time to distinguish ourselves from American corporate interests. Does Harvey's do this?
Since 1954, the World Meteorological Organization has been naming extreme storms. We propose a new naming system. One that names extreme storms caused by climate change, after policy makers who deny climate change.
