Go the Distance! Hiking With Your Dog

Cesar Millan | February 25, 2015 | Green
Learn about your dog's limits physically, take the heat into consideration, and have a time limit for your hike. If their tongue is hanging out of their mouth more than half way, it's a sign to stop and take a rest.

Drinking Water: A Human Right at Risk in America

Imagine the challenge of caring for infants, the sick, or the elderly when the tap runs dry. Over the past year, hundreds of thousands of Americans have had to live out this nightmare.

Mike Weisser | February 23, 2015 | Politics
Vaccinations protect the human species against diseases for which there is no cure once the infection occurs. In this respect, vaccines become the cure for certain diseases through prevention, whereas we usually think of being cured as what doctors do to us after we get sick.

Can Shopping Local Save Detroit?

Amanda Gregory | February 20, 2015 | Detroit
If there is one thing in abundance in Detroit, it's saviors. From financiers to philanthropists to entrepreneurs, we have as many saviors as we do vacant lots. As a recovering participant in the "save Detroit" movement, let me tell you there is no one person, no one plan, no one answer for Detroit. And, more importantly Detroit doesn't need to be saved.

The media hasn't been too kind to the Motor City, so most people who haven't visited seem to assume it's a wasteland of abandoned buildings and zombie workers from old car factories.

Pay It Forward, Waiting to Pay It Back

Nicole Jankowski | February 18, 2015 | Good News
The latte was a gift, something to be appreciated. A simple reminder that kindness is palpable and comes in a red cardboard cup, with whipped cream on top. Sometimes we have to just accept help, just allow ourselves to be on the receiving end.
