Happy Friday everyone!
Daily Greens 86 – Workin’ For The Weekend
One positive benefit of rising gas prices, four day work weeks! Hopefully 4 day weeks are a trend that will continue as workers will be more productive with that extra day of rest and our economy will benefit from healthier people who are not cooped up inside their office five days a week.
No Paine, No Gain
A look back at Thomas Paine and his positive influence on the USA. Should we look to radicalism in our modern times for solutions to our great economic, educational, and environmental issues?
Where is your hippie “hope” now?
A satirical video about Barack Obama crushing the dreams of young kids hoping to become the next star athlete or musician. Personally, I think it’s about time schools integrate rap music into the curriculum and teach students how to use musical equipment in a music class rather than ignoring kids’ interests and discouraging them from following dreams. Sure, everyone won’t make it as a musician or athlete but by providing these kids a venue in an educational setting it could help keep them involved in the rest of their education.
Rest in peace newspapers, you’re simply not efficient or useful anymore. Nearly all of my news comes from the internet, which I’m finding is now much, much more accurate than the generic, corporate run newspapers. Plus, there’s no need to consume a bunch of paper to get a few stories I might find interesting when I can just use the internet to get the most updated version of the story and communicate instantly with others about the story. Attempts by the newspaper industry to adjust without adjusting draws similarities to the movie and music industry, both of whom are still struggling to understand our modern world.
Recycle An Old T-Shirt into a Sexy Bikini
I’d call this reusing more than recycling but in either case it’s a great tip for the ladies out there. We reuse our old shirts as rags around here but since it’s just cloth there’s more than one or two reuses for them.
That is all, folks. Have a great weekend!
