It is still early days for the American newfound interest in health and wellness, but as organics only make up 5 percent of total food sales I think the industry has a long runway of growth ahead.
In trying to understand people better and communicate more simply, colors have propelled my life in immeasurable ways -- from jubilant moods to more self-awareness.
President Obama not only expended his own "political capital" by pushing for fast-track but that of the Democratic Party too. He had a clear choice: either side with workers, environmentalists, consumers, and progressives -- or side with Wall Street, Big Pharma, Wal-Mart, and the Koch Brothers.
If the president truly wants us to #actonclimate, then we should be calling him and our representatives every day and telling them to vote NO on TPP. If TPP is so "progressive", then why is it being kept secret?
We must continue to build a movement so powerful that it is impossible for governments to allow trade rules to interfere with climate, environmental, and other public interest policies.
Since the year 2020 marks the 100 year commemoration of the passage of the 19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution granting women the vote, petition organizers argue that the time has long-since come for women to grace our currency, especially our paper bills.
Jim Jeffries decimates the guns are needed for protection argument with such good humor it may even silence the NRA. His comedy act does something dry statistics can't.
Dylann Roof's bigotry and bloodshed handed America a golden opportunity to begin overcoming a divisive split that began in South Carolina--and rightfully could end there--more than 150 years ago.
The White House and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released a new peer-reviewed report saying inaction on climate change is a dire threat to human health and the economy.

In one form or another, the U.S. has been at war with Iraq since 1990, including a sort-of invasion in 1991 and a full-scale one in 2003. During that quarter-century, Washington imposed several changes of government, spent trillions of dollars, and was involved in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. None of those efforts were a success.
But Jindal's time might have passed -- if it ever even existed. He's not as fresh a face on the political scene as he once was.
The president's mention of the N-word is still significant. It drove home his own distinction between overt and covert racism. That's a subject worthy of discussion. Focusing on his "use" of the N-word only serves as a distraction from that important debate.
Many people who are watching the events unfold about Obama and trade are asking, "who is this guy?" What happened to the senator from Illinois who consistently argued that free trade was often unfair trade for average Americans everywhere.
Sorry, Washington -- you probably can't put Iraq back together again. Certainly, the kinetic effects of more bombing won't repair the damage done to the Iraqi nation since the US invaded in 2003.
The velocity of events and the fragmentation of the media culture are such that it can be difficult to keep up with how we're doing in various national security crises around the world. Here's the latest state of play on some of the most pressing.
The Arctic is screaming. Can you hear her in the floods of Houston, the drought in California and the epic snowfall in Boston this past winter? Our collective failure to limit greenhouse gas emissions has pushed atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide to levels not seen for millions of years.
