Love Trumps Hate For Over 50 Years 16.11.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
This week, I've been thinking a lot about the concept of "Love Trumps Hate." And that means, as it so often does when I'm thinking about love, that I've been thinking about my parents. Nowadays, when I think of my parents and their enduring love - they met in high school and recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary - I think, too, of my attempt at enduring love that didn't work out (I refuse to use the word "failed") and why I hope that in that reality, too, love will eventually trump hate. But let's start with my parents. They grew up in the South. In the 1940s and 1950s. They went to college in the 1960s. By the time they got married, I was born, and my dad started law school, the free love movement - and the drugs and hippies and dropping out that went along with it - was well underway. My parents didn't use drugs. They weren't hippies - they were probably what many would have called "straight-laced." They didn't drop out. In so many ways, they followed the traditional life path of getting ...

Pay To Play In Seattle's Suburbs 16.11.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
This past August with the silent efficiency of a sharpened guillotine, 28 eviction notices were placed on the doors of Renton Woods apartment home residents, most of whom were single, black women with children. On the surface, the Renton Woods apartments in Renton, Washington, (suburb of Seattle), is the kind of sprawling A-Z, non-descript, passive taupe with burgundy accent, complexes that commuters drive by without a glance. A sad irony in the Pacific Northwest these days, is that these types of large apartment complexes represent a dwindling resource: safe harbor for low income citizens in a tight Seattle housing market. Every January an organized homeless count occurs and this year 160 people were tallied living on the streets of Renton, a sharp increase from the previous year, but a far cry from the thousands living homeless in Seattle. And that change in Renton in large part is due to a lack of affordable housing. The tech boom in Seattle is blowing back to the surburbs...which is a good thing, if ...

Worldwide Solidarity with a Green Party POTUS 27.10.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
YES, "that Sea Shepard Captain, Paul Watson." YES, "that Woodstock." Sea Shepard Captain Paul Watson cast his vote the other day, and shared his experience about his experience as an early voter. My Vote I went down to the town clerk's office in Woodstock today to cast an early ballot. I decided to pretend that my vote makes a difference in this pseudo-democracy where decisions are molded by corporate donations and media bias. It was surreal to see Donald Trump's name actually on that ballot. But there it was right under Hillary Clinton. In third place was Jill Stein, followed by Gary Johnson. Now I understand Clinton being first on the ballot because she is first in alphabetical order but why is Trump in second place. It should be Clinton, Johnson, Stein and Trump. So I'm not sure how it is decided who gets top place. And it does make a difference because a certain percentage of voters, (not the brightest crayons in the box type of voters) simply vote for the first name on the ballot. Anyhow I had to ...

The Fish Market: Inside the Big-Money Battle for the Ocean and Your Dinner Plate 22.10.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
By Lee van der Voo       THIS BOOK IS THE PRODUCT of a lost bet. That's the truth. In winter 2011, I had just written a story for a regional magazine about salmon fishing. And I was in a bar in Portland, Oregon, a wood-paneled place downtown called Cassidy's, loudly proclaiming that I was never going to do it again. Fish stories are boring, I said. Nobody reads them. There's nothing in them but a bunch of fishermen haggling over who gets to catch what. I was with a small group of writers, most of whom agreed by glazing over. See what I mean? I thought. But there was one exception. A colleague had just taken a job with the nonprofit group Ecotrust and bet me on the spot that he could get me to write another fish story. Then he started telling me that the United States was privatizing its oceans through a policy called "catch shares." And that, while the work was dovetailing with a lot of foodie-centric and eco-conscious buzzwords, it was also creating class warfare on the seas, upending fishing families ...

Cosmetics With A Conscious 21.10.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Last week when I was scrolling through my endless emails, separating the important ones from the junk mail, just as I was about to send one to the trash bin I realized it wasn't a Google solicitation, but it was from one of my friends. She wanted to introduce me to an LA based eco-luxury lifestyle company called Love Goodly . I'm always looking for the latest and greatest in new green products, so I clicked the link to their website. Within minutes I was intrigued.

This Is How You Teach Your Children To Think And Live Green 15.10.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
We've all heard about the environmental issues plaguing Mother Earth as this article is being written: global warming, endangered species slowly becoming extinct, different kinds of pollution, and others. These result to a heavily-polluted and damaged environment where we all live in. As a parent, it's a kind of world I surely don't want my kid and the next generation to inherit. If you feel the same way, we should all start making eco-friendly choices . However, it shouldn't end there. You also have to engage your kids in thinking and living green the earliest time possible. Here's a list of do's and don'ts to help you get started. 1. Use every opportunity available to tell them about the current situation of Mother Nature. You can do this while helping them with home works or while telling them bedtime stories. Address all the questions they may have and if possible, you can pull up pictures available online so they'll have a clearer picture of what you're talking about. Just be sure to not flood them ...
