Green Living History
I like to see ahead into the future, to see where we are going. We only have the past and present to peer ahead and look where the future will be. http://greenlivinghistory.com/

Sometimes an idea is both relatively simple and extremely awesome, and then you look around and you realize it doesn't exist. The more enterprising among us would respond to this absence of awesomeness by making their idea happen. The rest of us just sit...
There are many unsung heroes in history, but what's more amazing is how many people not only saved a few lives, but possibly the whole world. Here are a few amazing men and women who you probably owe your life to. (heroes, people, saved, science, history, cold war)
On 1954, a soviet surgeon, revealed his masterpiece to the world: a two-headed dog. From Vladimir Demikhov to Johann Conrad Dippel --the original Frankenstein--, meet the ten Maddest Scientists ever.

Think you aren't being fooled by advertising tricks? Take a look at this so-called expert revealing food marketing's secret weapon. No amount of marketing ma...
No one is oblivious. It is exactly as the actress said - wilful ignorance. Do you really want to think about where everything in the grocery store came from, the life it had or didn't have? Of course not. It was a great video but I doubt it will be able to change anything. The fact is that we shop at the grocery store and we want our food to be cheap, available and without guilt or blame.
I bet the politicians will be sleeping in a big, warm bed tonight.
Not everything is so simple. How would the public really feel if the Government began giving away land in any location, to anyone, for free? Do you really want your neighbour to be a homeless person who was given their property for free (and does not have to pay taxes either)? Be honest, not politically correct.
Homelessness is a big issue for a reason. What can be done for people who don't fit in? How much can be given away for free to people who don't contribute something? I do agree that charity begins at home... I just wonder where it can come from when there is only so much people are able or willing to give.
Talking about politicians sleeping in a warm bed is silly and not at all helpful. I intend to sleep in a warm bed tonight too - once my feet warm up. That does not mean I can't understand or sympathize.
