How to Sit in a Chair and Enjoy a Cup of Tea

15 Jan

A great read from the Raptitude blog.  In today’s go go go world, sometimes all we need to do is stop and do nothing.

First, slow down, like you’ve just turned off the highway into a quiet neighborhood. Normal rat-race speed is unsuitable for what we’re about to do. Hurrying through the process of relaxing defeats its purpose.

A Bike Made Out of Cardboard [with VIDEO]

19 Sep

A video is worth more than 1,000 words so I will let this video explain everything.

Yes this bike  is really made out of cardboard. The article states that this bike is made from approx $9 worth of materials.

Next step for the company is to get funding for manufacturing. I think a lot of investors would jump all over this… from a Dragon’s Den type show, Kickstarter – or a massive corporate sponsorship from a related company like UPS or sporting like Nike. The global implications for this bike are massive.

How to Avoid Genetically Modified Food (GMO) – Shoppers Guide

23 Mar

ImageIt’s strange that in Canada and the USA producers are not required to label Genetically Modified Foods (GMO).  Even stranger is that companies who produce non-GMO foods are not allowed (or strongly discouraged) from labeling their products as non-GMO.  This makes it very hard for shoppers in the grocery store to make safe and sound decisions for their families.

Here’s a brief guide that will help you in choosing the best products for your family when grocery shopping.  Note that this guide is in no way comprehensive… there are literally millions and millions of products available on grocery shelves and this guide just covers a few hundred.  GMO labeling laws are the only thing that could help consumers truly know what they are buying and help them make the right decisions when shopping.
