The Reality Of Radiation From The Fukushima Disaster

It is a beautiful, breezy summer day here in Miami on which it feels more fitting to be posting positive news. It disturbs me deeply that I am bringing you news which holds the potential for such disastrous global consequences. This is not conspiracy theory. This is real news about a situation which has yet [...]

A Humpback Whale Tale Of Gratitude

Once considered an endangered species as a consequence of commercial whaling, the humpback whale has now made a strong comeback since the ban was enforced on hunting these gentle giants. Today there are about 80,000 humpback whales in our world's oceans. Though they have escaped the perils of being hunted, these whales are not completely [...]

The Shame From The Starving Children In Our World

When I first began to travel the world as a young woman, I was both blessed with the gift of expansion and jolted by the shock of poverty. I was raised on a large, beautiful farm, and never lived one day as a child knowing the pain of hunger. Today, nearly forty years later, there [...]

The Dead Food Diet For Obesity And Malnutrition

The majority of Americans are not only overweight, but suffering from malnutrition. How can this be in an affluent country that prides itself on having and knowing everything? We do not have what we think we have, and we do not really know what we know. We do not have conscious agriculture practices that work [...]

Plastic Pollution Is Killing Our Oceans

When Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the marine biologist legend Jacques Cousteau, says he sees more and more garbage and less and less fish every time he ventures into the ocean, it is time to worry. Cousteau, like his father, spends most of his time and life on the sea so he is really in the [...]

Back To The Garden To Feed The World

In 2009, I read a series of books called The Ringing Cedar Series by Vladimir Megré. The story is based on a young Russian woman who was found living alone in the Siberian wilderness in 1995 by the author. Apparently, she was born in 1969 to parents who died shortly after in a forest accident, [...]

Join The Battle To Stop Monsanto And GMO

America is the home of the brave and the free. Our founding fathers put forth a constitution to ensure the justice, peace, welfare and freedom for all. It is time to ask ourselves where is the justice, peace, welfare and freedom being upheld in a country where the homeless gather at traffic lights in search [...]

Eco Friendly Outdoor Furniture For Summer

I grew up on a big cattle farm in Virginia, and worked on the farm every summer. I weeded in the garden, picked up rocks in the fields, dug unwanted thistles, baled hay, helped break and train yearlings, painted fences and almost every year repainted the white, wooden Adirondack chairs on the front lawn. Today, [...]

Saving Lives With The Solar Suitcase

When most of us think about solar power, we visualize solar panels and ways to use solar in our homes. Few of us  associate solar power with saving lives, except for Laura Stachel. She is a former obstetrician from California who recognized the need for light to save women in Malawi, Africa from dying in [...]
