My little room, tucked beneath the eaves. The darkest little corner in the whole house. I love it.
Math, you’re the one that got away.
“This tabletop is composed entirely of plywood residual material from the furniture industry. The material is bought at the same price as a new sheet of plywood, provided the factory saws in the right format. This creates a new homogeneous resource. By bringing the material together in a fishbone pattern, there is no limit in the size or thickness of the table, and even the smallest residual piece can be used. In this way I can make a new surface which is stronger than the original material.”
Renisha Mcbride was a 19 year old Black Girl from Michigan. On November 2nd, she was involved in a terrible car crash but survived. After the accident, she ran to the nearest house looking for help because her phone had died. She knocked on the front door and was shot in the face with a shotgun by the White Homeowner. After the murder, No Charges have been pressed against the White shooter and it is being called a justified Killing. Several Police officers and the Shooter’s lawyer have said that “He acted Properly” in shooting her. Don’t ever be fooled into believing that Racism is over.

The yurt compound of William Coperthwaite on the Blue Hill Peninsula of Maine.
No one alive has done more to promote yurts than Bill Coperthwaite. Coming across the style in a 1962 National Geographic article, he recognized in the yurt a construction method so simple and durable, that almost anyone, regardless of skill or budget, could build their own home. He’s spent the last 4 decades living off-grid, lecturing, selling plans, and leading hundreds of yurt building workshops around the globe.

Me, on every occasion that I’m out with my friends and my outfit has no pockets.
In this gut-wrenching talk, Sergeant Andrew Chambers shares the haunting story of his time in Iraq and the tough transition home that landed him in jail. It’s a powerful testimony to the struggle our soldiers face when they come home, and the tragic ways that they can be denied the help they need.
For anyone looking to support a veteran, we encourage you to heed Chambers’ advice: "Find a veteran and listen to his story. A lot of us just need somebody to talk to."
Why is there not more help available for Veterans?
