We feel our best when we eat foods that keep us balanced and full of energy! These foods help us maintain an alkaline state in our bodies. Our internal acid-alkaline balance is one of our primary health balances. If our bodies become too acidic, disease follows. If our bodies are alkaline, disease cannot take hold. Eat at least 3 of these a day!

Gay marriage’s second round at the Supreme Court

Following yesterday’s debate on the future of California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage in the state, the Supreme Court began its hearing this morning on the Defense of Marriage Act.

Since its inception in 1996, DOMA has drawn controversy, but this is the first time that the mandate, which has fallen out of favor with the Obama administration, has been brought to the Supreme Court.

Though crowds in front of the courtroom are smaller than yesterday’s Prop. 8 supporters and opponents

THE NEW AGE OF EXPLORATION

“Ever since our species left Africa some 60,000 years ago, the urge to push beyond what’s known—to discover new lands and opportunities—has shaped human culture. And that impulse is still strong.” - National Geographic

The NYT reports:


Primitive staples-and-glue residue will be the subject of a lecture on Wednesday at the New York Ceramics Fair, “Simply Riveting: A Look at Broken and Mended Ceramics,” by Angelika Kuettner, a curator at Colonial Williamsburg.


The brief article — here: Repaired China, the Potter John Bennett, Schoolgirl Rugs - NYTimes.com — brings up some interesting thoughts around mended goods and value. It also mentions:


Since the 1980s the Ames Gallery in Berkeley, Calif., has offered a category of objects called “mends and make-dos.” The owner, Bonnie Grossman, is writing a book about them.



We’ll keep an eye out for that — great subject!

Garden Fresh by Agan Harahap

Harahap on his project:

Garden Fresh series investigates the shifting boundaries between humans and animals in today’s environment and the complex relationship between art and nature. It is like a fable about a journey undertaken by the animals when they venture into our daily lives. The animals are confronted by a new reality that is in conflict with their natural habits and habitats.

At the same time, when we see these ‘zoo-trapped’ animals in supermarkets, their most outstanding characteristics are isolated as their ‘only’ characteristics. The animals are stripped of their own identities and are used as empty vessels to be filled with the human drama of parody, satire and allegory. We cannot help but see animals from a human vantage point, and therefore in some sense all the works in the present exhibition are actually about us.

Scientists have discovered nearly pure frozen water and even some organic material in Mercury’s polar regions.

The new research “doesn’t mean we have life on Mercury,” said UCLA planetary scientist David Paige, lead author of one of three papers published Thursday by the journal Science. “But it is relevant for the question of life in the solar system in general.”

Also of note: NASA’s new interactive Web feature lets you explore Mercury through photos taken by the Messenger spacecraft.
