Green Park to $ave Green
Speaking of Brooklyn Bridge Park... It's made out of mostly recycled materials which will save everyone some money. A highlight: it has a large underground tank system so rainwater can be captured and stored to serve the park’s irrigation needs. See the article of other cool "green" features.

In Feast of Data on BPA Plastic, No Final Answer

Environmentalists think the United States should adopt the “precautionary principle,” a better-safe-than-sorry approach favored in the European Union. The principle says, in essence, that if there are plausible health concerns about a chemical, even if they are not proved, people should not be exposed to it until studies show it is safe. The United States takes the opposite approach: chemicals are not banned unless there is proof of harm.

Monsanto's Roundup Residues in GM (GMO) Food Cause Cell Damage

How Debt Can Destroy a Budding Relationship
Debt can destroy more than a relationship, but good stuff to think about. Thought it's be good to share since we talked Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

I Was Wrong About Veganism. Let Them Eat Meat- But Farm It Properly
Amen! I don't eat meat, fish or flesh of any sort at the moment and haven't for some time now (though I do use leather). This whole "vegan" thing doesn't always make sense to me. I agree, killing animals is sad. I think it's safe to say most are not for the killing of animals- who likes that? But it happens all the time in nature- just pop in one of those nature shows. It's sad to see the Polar Bear eat the Seal, and the Seal eat the Penguin, and the Penguin eating the Fish- but it happens. It's natural. I think making all these chemical-laden man-made materials and foods are much much worse. In any case, once again- all "meat" is not created equal.
