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”

Food justice activist Karen Washington wants us to move away from the term ‘food desert’, which doesn’t take into account the systemic racism permeating America’s food system

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.

10 toxic people you should avoid like the plague

Written by Travis Bradberry

Toxic people defy logic. Some are blissfully unaware of the negative impact that they have on those around them, and others seem to derive satisfaction from creating chaos and pushing other people’s buttons.

As important as it is to learn how to deal with different kinds of people, truly toxic people will never be worth your time and energy — and they take a lot of each. Toxic people create unnecessary complexity, strife, and, worst of all, stress.

“People inspire you, or they drain you — pick them wisely.” – Hans F. Hansen

Recent research from Friedrich Schiller University in Germany shows just how serious toxic people are. They found that exposure to stimuli that cause strong negative emotions — the same kind of exposure you get when dealing with toxic people — caused subjects’ brains to have a massive stress response.

Whether it’s negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome, or just plain craziness, toxic people drive your brain into a stressed-out state that should be avoided at all costs. Continue reading 10 toxic people you should avoid like the plague
