  28.    <title>Is Junk Food Cheaper? Turns out, not really...</title>
  29.    <content type="html">&lt;p&gt;A great op-ed in the New York Times from Mark Bittman today entitled &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?&lt;/a&gt; in which he raises a critical point that we (by which I mean the collective of grow-your-own or organic-only foodies) often forget:&lt;/p&gt;
  30. &lt;blockquote&gt;
  31. &lt;p&gt;But food choices are not black and white; the alternative to fast food is not necessarily organic food, any more than the alternative to soda is Bordeaux. The alternative to soda is water, and the alternative to junk food is not grass-fed beef and greens from a trendy farmers&#8217; market, but anything other than junk food: rice, grains, pasta, beans, fresh vegetables, canned vegetables, frozen vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, dairy products, bread, peanut butter, a thousand other things cooked at home &#8212; in almost every case a far superior alternative.&lt;/p&gt;
  32. &lt;/blockquote&gt;
  33. &lt;p&gt;He continues to show the real cost of food and the actual chemical &amp;#8220;hyper-addictive&amp;#8221; qualities of fast-food. Our neighbors are not suffering solely from bad food choices, but perhaps even from a chemical addiction.&lt;/p&gt;
  34. &lt;blockquote&gt;
  35. &lt;p&gt;Overconsumption of fast food &amp;#8216;triggers addiction-like neuroaddictive responses&amp;#8217; in the brain, making it harder to trigger the release of dopamine. In other words the more fast food we eat, the more we need to give us pleasure; thus the report suggests that the same mechanisms underlie drug addiction and obesity.&lt;/p&gt;
  36. &lt;/blockquote&gt;
  37. &lt;p&gt;Just as we came to good food choices over time, we need to remember that to someone who swears by a Big Mac and Fries for lunch every day is not going to easily say &amp;#8220;okay, sure, I&amp;#8217;ll take a squash!&amp;#8221; in short order. In fact, they&amp;#8217;ll more than likely clam up like a 6 month old who is quite tired of whatever pureed liver or spinach is being fed to them. But over time, this change can occur to healthier choices that save the person money.&lt;/p&gt;
  38. &lt;p&gt;One of the best ways to start the conversion is to discuss the pocket book. It is cheaper to cook at home and make your own coffee and it doesn&amp;#8217;t take that much more time if you plan it out. Of course, we&amp;#8217;ll probably never convince the &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Brooklyn Kitchenistas&lt;/a&gt;, who use their kitchen as an extension of their closet, to make the change.&lt;/p&gt;
  39. &lt;p&gt;Alas, we can&amp;#8217;t win them all.&lt;/p&gt;</content>

  46.    <title>Low Tech Hacking: Soda bottle as light source</title>
  47.    <content type="html">&lt;p&gt;Residents in the Philippines have taken a soda bottle filled with water, some flashing, and some ingenuity to create a 55-watt equivalent light source in the dark shacks that are so prevalent in the poor parts of the world. The shacks are dark during the day and many of the individuals can&amp;#8217;t afford much. Taking any food grade bottle, filling it with distilled water and inserting it into the corrugated metal roof, they create a refracted light source.  By using the bottle, the sunlight hits the water and scatters in multiple directions (or refracts), thus giving a light bulb effect without the heat or cost of traditional electric light during the daylight hours.&lt;/p&gt;

  81.    <title>Does Your Brand Determine Your Customers?</title>
  82.    <content type="html">&lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;This article on LivingSocial&amp;#8217;s customer base&lt;/a&gt; got me thinking about how positioning your brand when you start a company can affect how you end up growing and the user types you attract.&lt;/p&gt;
  83. &lt;p&gt;While I do work at &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;LivingSocial&lt;/a&gt; and I do like to slog Groupon, I think this article points out a curious result of branding between the two companies. Groupon is all about the deal. The best cost is the lowest cost. Limited time availability! Share it with your friends to make sure it &amp;#8220;tips&amp;#8221;! LivingSocial has positioned itself more as a higher-end brand, with mixing in its escapes packages, etc. Just look at the design of the sites as well. Groupon is all green and color heavy. LivingSocial is image heavy. And I think that the brand the companies have put forth have attracted a certain demographic:&lt;/p&gt;
  84. &lt;blockquote&gt;&lt;p&gt;Nielsen&#8217;s survey data, gathered from 200,000 Internet users, shows that people who use LivingSocial are 49 percent more likely than the average American online to make at least $150,000 a year, compared to 30 percent of Groupon users. LivingSocial customers are also younger (51 percent of them are between 35 and 64, while 57 percent of Groupon&#8217;s customers fall in that range), and they&#8217;re better educated (46 percent of its users had attended or graduated college or received other degrees, compared with Groupon at 39 percent).&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;
  85. &lt;p&gt;While LivingSocial is number 2 in the daily deals space, I think that they&amp;#8217;re set up for a much better run. They can do higher end deals, and therefore gross more revenue. There&amp;#8217;s a lot of co-brands to a higher end demographic that simply don&amp;#8217;t work on a carnival barker approach.&lt;/p&gt;
  86. &lt;p&gt;It reminds me of Apple&amp;#8217;s positioning after they started pushing the iPod and other consumer electronics. When you mix this with LivingSocial&amp;#8217;s fanatical customer support, especially evident on Twitter, it starts to point to a more successful run.&lt;/p&gt;</content>

  93.    <title>How Modern Materials Age</title>
  94.    <content type="html">&lt;img src=&quot;/assets/Spomenik_10.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;&quot; /&gt;
  95. &lt;p&gt;One of the things that bothers me most about modern architecture is the materials. People select these materials that look awesome when the building is designed and constructed, but that don&amp;#8217;t age well, or, at least don&amp;#8217;t age in a way that is pleasing to the eye. They require a lot of upkeep, and without that upkeep, the structures just fall apart.&lt;/p&gt;
  96. &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;This collection of Yugoslavian monuments form the 60s and 70s&lt;/a&gt; shows very futuristic looking materials that have just not aged well. When I think of good, solid construction, I think of stone and masonry. Look at the old Roman stuff, much of that is stone, and some is masonry with concrete (a technology which was lost for over a thousand years after the fall of Rome) and those structures have aged well. They may not be in tip top shape, but granite and marble just handle the elements better.&lt;/p&gt;</content>

  140.    <title>Huckabee (Intentionally?) Missing the Argument on Healthcare</title>
  141.    <content type="html">&lt;p&gt;Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee are already &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;going at each other&amp;#8217;s throats&lt;/a&gt; over healthcare in what will probably be a very nasty 2012 Republican Primary. Huckabee is doing everything in his power to link Romney&amp;#8217;s State-level Massachusetts healthcare law to the Federal Healthcare law (aka &amp;#8220;Obamacare&amp;#8221;), but he&amp;#8217;s missing a critical point: this &lt;strong&gt;is&lt;/strong&gt; the purview of the States to do such a think. If Massachusetts wants to have a State run health care program, they are completely within their bounds to do it. Now former Gov. Huckabee is quite within the realm of logic and argument if he wants to have a discussion about the role of government at the State level, but the main challenge to the Federal health care bill is a different beast. These arguments are that Federal Healthcare is outside of the enumerated powers of the Constitution and that it is not covered by the &amp;#8220;general welfare&amp;#8221; or commerce clauses.&lt;/p&gt;
  142. &lt;p&gt;In regards to those who support the general welfare argument as grounds to support Federalized healthcare, I would like to point out President James Madison&amp;#8217;s (then a Congressman from Virginia&amp;#8217;s 5th District) &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;commentary in 1792 about New England&amp;#8217;s Cod fisheries and their desire for what amounted to a bailout&lt;/a&gt; :&lt;/p&gt;
  143. &lt;blockquote&gt;
  144. &lt;p&gt;If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the &amp;#8220;general welfare,&amp;#8221; and are the sole and supreme judges of the &amp;#8220;general welfare,&amp;#8221; then they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every state, county, and parish and pay them out of the public treasury, they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the United States; they may assume the provision for the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, everything from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police would be thrown under the power of Congress, for every object I have mentioned would admit of the application of money, and might be called, if Congress pleased, provisions for the &amp;#8220;general welfare&amp;#8221;&lt;sup class=&quot;footnote&quot; id=&quot;fnr1&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;#fn1&quot;&gt;1&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/sup&gt;&amp;gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  145. &lt;/blockquote&gt;
  146. &lt;p&gt;This from the father of the Constitution, one of the primary authors of the Federalist papers, in support of a strong Federal government. There was never an intent for the Federal Government to grow to this size.&lt;/p&gt;
  147. &lt;p&gt;The second argument has been one that says the commerce clause covers healthcare because it deals with interstate issues. This has been a slippery slope since 1789 and has been used to extend the enumerated powers much in the same way that the general welfare clause has. Basically, anything that can be counted under interstate commerce becomes the purview of the Federal Government, extending into areas it deems it needs to but then telling the states that they have sovereignty when it comes to their own financial problems (which is another issue for another time).&lt;/p&gt;
  148. &lt;p&gt;Gov. Huckabee needs to frame his argument in the right view, but I feel he&amp;#8217;s more about the subversion of Gov. Romney&amp;#8217;s 2012 campaign than actually discussing the merits of State-sponsored health care.&lt;/p&gt;

Extreme feminism has finally won, and a woman can finally do a man&amp;#8217;s job. But with these men having no interest in doing a woman&amp;#8217;s job, it leaves the woman doing both. Twenty-something girlfriends take care of and boss around their twenty-something boyfriends, and effectively replace the boy&amp;#8217;s mother and then complain that the boy won&amp;#8217;t become a man. Maybe it&amp;#8217;s time to reinstate the draft.&lt;/p&gt;
  163. &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Track Anyone via GeoLocations&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  164. We saw what happened when Adam Savage posted a photo of his car from his phone last fall and accidentally gave away his home address. Here&amp;#8217;s another freaky thing that can happen. People can basically stalk your location. Think of it as the &lt;span class=&quot;caps&quot;&gt;CIA&lt;/span&gt; room in The Bourne Identity but just on someone&amp;#8217;s desktop. Of course, if you check in and broadcast religiously on FourSquare, this means nothing to you.&lt;/p&gt;
  165. &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Gun Running Scandal at &lt;span class=&quot;caps&quot;&gt;ATF&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  166. So the &lt;span class=&quot;caps&quot;&gt;ATF&lt;/span&gt; has let people buy guns they know shouldn&amp;#8217;t buy them so they can let them smuggle them across the border to then claim that the gun laws are too loose and therefore need to be tightened. Between the &lt;span class=&quot;caps&quot;&gt;TSA&lt;/span&gt; and &lt;span class=&quot;caps&quot;&gt;BAFTE&lt;/span&gt;, I&amp;#8217;m not sure who is more corrupt and impotent as an organization. They should both be disbanded, since they appear to help the problem more than fight it.&lt;/p&gt;</content>

  175. &lt;p&gt;I took the footage from our show opening for Coldplay at the Verizon Center and cut it together to an excerpt of our new tune &amp;#8220;Tell Me Now&amp;#8221; from our forthcoming record, &amp;#8220;Standing on the White LIne&amp;#8221;. We&amp;#8217;ll be playing last, with our friends &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;Against Grace&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;;&gt;No Second Troy&lt;/a&gt; opening the show.&lt;/p&gt;</content>

  185. &lt;p&gt;I&amp;#8217;ll bet that the guy went off script and the female anchor decided to decisively win the echange. Without missing a beat, she tossed off that comment and went right back to work. Awesome.&lt;/p&gt;</content>
