Food apartheid: the root of the problem with America’s groceries | Society | The Guardian

Is systemic racism at work in our food system. Are areas of poverty the deciding factor in who gets access to good, wholesome foods?? This is a great article that introduces the concept of “Food Apartheid”

5 Adult Coloring Books For Those New to the Phenomenon – Everup

Looking for a way to experience some calm and peace during some challenging times, I turned to an old friend, the coloring book. Growing up an only child, you gotta find some things to keep you busy. Coloring and comics, two of my go-to things.

I remember having coloring contests to see who could do the best picture. This was when you had to have quarters to play “video games”.  The hours and number of books colored as a child can be incredible. Even if a child chooses to do something other than to be the next  Crayola Picasso, we all touch the cray at some point in our lives

I forged some of my longest friendships across a dining room table with a 32 box laid out between us. When else did you learn to hang with somebody else and just be ok being there and not have to or need to say something?? I should start coloring with my wife. (Hmmm….)

Coloring is making a comeback and it is for the discerning individual(s).  Pick up a book, crayons, pencils, markers, whatever you color best with and turn back the clock to a simpler time when it was all about the color.

Josh Trent & Sean Croxton hit the SDSU campus at the San Diego Food Justice Conference 2010 in search of answers to the rising epidemic of obesity and sickness in America and the world. The corporate agribusiness would love to have you believe that they are “feeding the world” with GMO’S, pesticides and petrol chemicals, but at what cost?
