Industrial Pollution and Chemicals

June 4th, 2010 — 7:03am

We’ve made it to the 21st century and we’re still extremely dependent on petro-chemicals for all our needs. They’re detrimental to personal and planetary health. At the rate we’re going we won’t have a planet for future generations and the air won’t be healthy enough to breathe.

Today was a perfect day to go out and get some air and some sunshine. Every morning I’m blessed to wake up to the rising sun and feel its grace and warmth and beauty as I begin my day. Although I spend most of my day working on the computer and the Internet I always make sure that I spend at least 10-15 minutes throughout the day cleansing my mind and filling my lungs with fresh air. However, that is becoming more and more difficult to do. This afternoon I stepped out into the luscious green back yard to enjoy the birds and warm sunshine and stretch my muscles a bit.

Let’s take a look at a male rite of passage gaining popularity around the world. In some places like Andhra Pradesh, daily consumption of hot chilies is taken for granted. But the latest challenge to manhood, as Chase Michal tells us, is scorching good fun.

Young lads around the world have made a concerted decision that braving the path of sweat and pain is far better than drinking competitions. Chilies are the inevitable and perfect substitute for the manly competition of seeing who can hold down the most liquor before passing out.

The Clairvoyant

January 13th, 2010 — 6:42am

It was not yet daylight when the clairvoyant, dressed in a dark hooded anorak, drove her car to Steeple Norford. No one was about in the few streets that made up the small village. Driving slowly, she wended her way past the main street, the old gothic church, the hall, the two pubs and the large famous private school. There she lingered for a few moments, suppressed a sense of nostalgia and drove on to a secluded meadow just behind the large grounds of the hunting lodge where the annual fete took place. There, out of any body’s sight, she parked her car. Continue reading »

Writing Heals Wounded Hearts

December 22nd, 2009 — 6:29am

After my mother died, writing is what scooped me up from the underbelly of despair. I began writing about my feelings of pain and confusion of losing someone so close to me. The feeling of helplessness and loss was overwhelming at times. I felt alone in the world, despite family and friends. My large Italian family was a comfort and they were there for me, but I still felt so abandoned and alone. I still do sometimes.

Until Dietz’s senior year of high school, her father made no real effort to meet her. She wasn’t even sure if she wanted to meet him at all. “I thought that he had taken 17 years to get up the courage to meet me, and I wanted my time to decide when I wanted to meet him,” Dietz said.

Kristin Dietz isn’t your typical 20-year-old college student. Though she was an enthusiastic cheerleader in high school and almost always wears a coordinated outfit, Dietz has had a college experience that is nothing like most sweater set-wearing sorority girls’.
