Death Proof vs. Planet Terror

Me and my friends are watching Death Proof and raise the debate on whether or not you can compare Death Proof to Planet Terror. They are completely different movies, with different plots, characters, and themes. Yet they are shown at the same time. Can you compare the two or is wrong to do so?

Keep Counting Those Days

The last State of the Union address by President George W. Bush is a warm reminder that soon enough, he will no longer be our president.

We can now continue with our debate on who the next president will be. Obama? Hil-Dog? Old Man McCain? Ron Paul? Romney?

So far i have no idea who i am going to vote for. I might just not vote, because the last two elections that i voted in....things haven't exactly turned out that great.

Mud Cookies Are New Delicacy

An article i thought interresting i found in the SF Chronicle about the food source for very poor Hatians...Mud.

"The mud has long been prized by pregnant women and children here as an antacid and source of calcium. But in places like Cite Soleil, the oceanside slum where Charlene shares a two-room house with her baby, five siblings and two unemployed parents, cookies made of dirt, salt and vegetable shortening have become a regular meal." (Jonathan M. Katz)

*This is one of those instances i feel that the U.S. is obligated to intervene. ( It might even cut back on our obesity problem)

Home Town is Greenest in Country

A news report from the Portland Press Herald

"Organic Gardening Magazine named Portland the top green city of its size in the United States, city officials announced today.

The magazine cited Portland's plentiful parks and trails, as well as its climate protection agreement, anti-idling ordinance and use of biodiesel for city-owned vehicles.

Portland's category included cities with fewer than 150,000 people.

Organic Gardening confirms what those who call Portland home already know: This is a great, healthy and clean city for people to live, work and play," said City Manager Joseph Gray Jr.

Other cities recognized by the magazine include Burlington, Vt.; Fargo, N.D.; Sioux Falls, S.D. and Billings, Mont.

The magazine ranked cities based on data from Earthday Network's Urban Environmental Report. Categories included water quality, green space, percentages of residents who walk, bicycle or use public transit, availability of locally grown food and commitment to climate-change policy."
