Junk food

Having just eaten my share of junkfood today as we had a work party, I thought I would post  a couple of articles on food that have come up lately.

First, there is this one came up at Live Science just the other day entitled ” School Bans Birthday Sweets” by Christopher Wanjek. Like the article states, I think it’s a little bit of an overreaction.

Second, “Advertising Inside School Buses, Lovely” by Patricial Maryville-Cox over at Green Daily really bothers, especially as a parent of a 9, 5 and 2 year olds.

Homeward bound

These days, there are lots of ways to get home but here are a couple of articles on the one that is perhaps becoming the way to go right now, biking.

Despite all the gloomy economic news, according to Michael Graham Richard over at Treehugger, there is “No Recession for Bicycle Makers“.

Also for those of you who use city bike plans, check out “City Bike Plans on Training Wheels” by Charisse Jones over at USA Today.

On a fun note, for those of you who want to purify your water while you ride, check out “Aquaduct Bike Purifies Water as You Pedal” by Daniel Flahiff at Inhabitat.

Happy trails!

Hurricane season homestretch

As I was reminded today that we are heading into the homestretch of hurricane season, I have come across a couple of articles that discuss the damage to our coastal landscape from these destructive hurricanes.

There was this article in last week’s science section of the New York Times by Cornelia Dean entitled ” After Hurricane Ike, Finding the Coastline Rearranged, Again“.

After reading that article, I stumbled back upon this article from ENN back in March entitled “Geotimes: The Impending Coastal Crisis” from the American Geological Institute that talks about the damage done back in the 1990’s.
