Harvest JUICERY…

…oh my goodness…and I am speaking of  yummy goodness!  I cannot tell you how many times I have held my nose while choking down freshly squeezed concoctions.  Harvest JUICERY has snuffed-out my juicing misery with delicious cold-pressed juice delights.  What is cold-pressed juice, you say? It’s juice that’s hydraulically pressed…a fancy press that does not generate any heat, keeping the temperature of the product without oxidizing; and, then pressed with thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the juice. The juice contains two to three pounds of vegetables in every bottle…

of course a cool venue is needed to ‘get the juices flowing’…by Chicago-based design firm, blochaus

the packaging is simple and honest…just like the product…

 

Krissy Sciarra, owner and chef, refers to her business as “a 21st century milkman that really does your body good.”  Harvest JUICERY delivers in the Chicago area…and, great news…they will ship out of state.  Cheers!

5 Ways You Can Fight Sex Trafficking, Right Now, From Your Computer

By: Guest Writer

Editor’s Note — In March, I had the pleasure to meet Cameron Conaway, a journalist who has dedicated his career to exposing the terrors of sex trafficking around the world. While such an article is outside our normal realm at TheCoolist, it is a poignant subject that exists in part because most of us would rather ignore it.  Cameron was kind enough to share 5 ways that you can fight sex trafficking, right now, from your computer. – Seamus Payne

More than once I’ve had someone approach me and say, “I want to help fight sex trafficking but I simply don’t have any time to volunteer.”

This is usually when I get to learn about their boss, Bill, and of how he’s a passive aggressive narcissist. Or of the precise times of little Madeline’s soccer practice throughout the week. It’s all valid. We’re all busy. But you need not spend ten hours each week volunteering at a local shelter for survivors of sex trafficking in order to help combat the crime. Here are 5 ways you can fight sex trafficking, right now, without leaving your computer.Bonus: Do two or more of these as soon as you finish reading the article.

(1) Follow the Warriors. While it is unbelievably rewarding to volunteer your time at shelters or to attend talks from some of the leaders in this field, equally important is supporting those who are on the ground, day after day, trying to eradicate this crime. Numbers matter in this fight. “Like” these Facebook pages and Follow these Twitter accounts:

(2) Buy Books. I’ve been in this fight long enough to see the way in which some writers are simply using this cause to make money. Lots of money. So here are a few books by those who are pioneers in the anti-slavery movement, and by those who are continually pushing the conversation forward:

(3) Donate What You Can. Here are two organizations that I’ve connected with and that I personally believe do productive work with the money they receive. It’s cliché, but no donation is too small.

(4) Share an Article. Publishers are struggling to stay afloat these days, and one way they pay the bills and can pay their writers is through pageviews. This means that just as you wield your consumer power in the grocery store and at the mall, so too do you wield consumer power with each site you visit. Here are a few articles worth reading and sharing:

(5) Join the Google+ Human Trafficking Community. With updates every hour (and the ability to toggle them on and off) the Google+ Human Trafficking Community is a terrific way to stay informed about all aspects of the global anti-slavery movement. Members will find everything from breaking news and influential political decisions to inspiring stories from survivors. And you know the next part: Share what you learn!

Why Not Blue?…

…yes, why not?  I always seem to gravitate toward a neutral palette or green when choosing a palette for my home…green is ‘a given’ when considering nature…but think of sky and water…so…
