The evidence is in. Despite the disinformation campaign by anti-wind advocates, the courts have ruled that wind farms do not cause health impacts.
The domination, killing, destruction, increased work and effort of modern society are not the hallmarks of intelligence, but rather stupidity. How can we use the 10% of our mental capacity more intelligently and effectively? Here are a few ideas:
Our children's ability to learn in the classroom and reach their fullest potential depends on what we do right now to secure their future. Healthier meals and snacks at school--with flexibility, common sense, and occasional treats--are how we get there.
Shark week got me thinking... Do you really care about the ocean? What's beyond the shoreline may never cross your mind. Could an ocean country change that?
The stigma of mental illness is often believed to be that we don't talk about mental illness. The harsh reality is that people don't talk about their emotions period and a large percentage of people feel that mental illness isn't treatable. We need to have a clearer starting point and explanations of mental health for people to follow in order to find the help they need.

Not only is the King-in-Waiting a passionate advocate for sustainable farming, but he is also pals with people who are, well, outstanding in their fields -- some of them literally, amidst crops and cows, and others figuratively, with government directorships and research institutes.
Much as we manage exposure to light in order to protect healthy sleep and circadian function, research like this offers further suggestion that we may also be able to manage dietary consumption to help keep circadian rhythms functioning properly.
Weak labor laws allow child farmworkers to work from younger ages, for longer hours, and in more hazardous conditions than children working in all other sectors. But inadequate child labor laws shouldn't keep the EPA from adopting strong protections for child farmworkers when it comes to pesticide exposure.
We will be able to stop Ebola in the coming weeks and months. But that is not the end of the story. Will we also build a strong enough health system to stop the next outbreak? We believe that it is a moral and economic imperative to do so, and all of us must work toward that goal.
Rather, leaving aside the swirl of aspersions that likely has Dr. Keys turning in his grave if such things are possible, I simply want to note that his work is...moot. It doesn't matter whether Keys was all right, all wrong, or inevitably -- somewhere in between.
When it comes to exercise, some of us require a bit more cajoling to get up and moving. Luckily, there’s a whole collection of workout apps just...
Butterflies are everywhere. Some of us wear them subtly on charms around our necks or dangling from our ears. Others wear t-shirts or sunglasses emblazoned with them. And then there are those who wear their butterflies more permanently, tattooing their skin with these winged creatures. No, we are not lepidopterists (scientists who study butterflies) or even butterfly enthusiasts.

How can markets be made efficient when people aren't? Apparent market failures are often attributed to individuals making apparent 'irrational' decisions. However, I argue that markets can be made more efficient when creating environments for individuals that aid their decision-making.
