“The withdrawal by the United States, the nation with the second highest carbon output in the world (behind China, whose per-capita emissions are less than half those of the US), seems deeply catastrophic.
It is catastrophic, yes. But not for the reasons we might think.”
Environmental and political analysis, from Rhyd Wildermuth
“Philosophers of freedom were mainly, and understandably, concerned with how humans would escape the injustice, oppression, inequality, or even uniformity foisted on them by other humans or human-made systems. Geological time and the chronology of human histories remained unrelated. This distance between the two calendars, as we have seen, is what climate scientists now claim has collapsed….
The mansion of modern freedoms stands on an ever-expanding base of fossil-fuel use.”
Dipesh Chakrabarty, The Climate of History
The world awoke to the news on Thursday that President Donald Trump announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the…

Hello again, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend, we certainly did! Tikki got a surprise visit from his Nana & Poppa, it completely made his day. He always gets so excited when people visit, especially when Nana & Poppa visit.
Anyway, let’s talk about meatballs, since that’s what we’re making today. When I make meatballs (and all Italian food really) it floods my mind with memories of my grandmother cooking and her teaching me how to cook. It also brings up memories of her cussing me out in Sicilian for tasting the food too often, I mean can you blame me? That shit was delicious!
She was, and still is, such an inspiration to me. So, this post is for her. Let’s get rolling….
1 lb ground pork
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup of milk (low carbers, you can use beef stock here instead of…

Happy Thursday and almost holiday weekend! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was celebrating Memorial Day Weekend last year in the Hamptons – where has the past year gone?! So, in honor of celebrating the change of seasons, I thought I would style my newest white dress from Abercrombie + Fitch. I paired the dress with a light-weight navy leather jacket – perfect for cooler nights – and some of my favorite accessories. For more summer style inspiration, make sure to follow me on Pinterest because I’m pinning fashion and beauty inspiration every day! (Check out my Summer Style board here!)
Also, I just back to NYC from my long vacation in Arizona and Vegas, and I cannot wait to share the overload of travel and outfit posts coming your way in the next couple of weeks! Stay tuned! xo

There are a lot of things I love about spring – flowers, thunderstorms, open windows and… veggies being in season! I love eating green beans raw, and springtime is when they get really good – especially here in Wisconsin. They are on my short list to plant in our garden this year, so I can’t wait to try this recipe again with homegrown beans!
We’re always looking for healthy, easy meals to make during the week and if you love beans and salmon, this is something that I would recommend trying!
What You Need
This recipe was for just Casey and myself – using only one pan, and it was the perfect amount of food + leftover veggies! You could make more, but you’d obviously need more than one pan, which would defeat the purpose. 😉
- 2 Salmon filets (mine were marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, crushed basil and…

Shut It, Babe – SketcBook Pro for iPad (2017)
Have you ever met people who always be so fussy about whatever you do? Always think that their opinion is right and makes you feel unsure about what you do?
Sometimes you may hear something like: Why you seem so skinny? Oh are you gaining weight? You never post the picture with him again, are you guys done? Your style is so outdated! That blush color makes your cheeks look chubbier! You want to be an actor? Just enjoy the life you have now, don’t seek something impossible, darling. And… etc.
Wear those unmatched color outfits you like, gain weight, lose weight, get serious, or break up, be an actor/artist/musician do whatever things that suit you well. Their opinion doesn’t matter for you, you have your own choice so don’t let anybody control your decision with their opinion.
Maybe some people are…

I wish women would stop taking relationship advice from ‘men’. And by this I mean men who are unqualified. These men are not Counsellors, Psychotherapists’ or Psychologists. They don’t know JACK about you or your partner. But they are perambulating as relationship experts on social media and even on TV. Some of them are labeling themselves as lifestyle coaches with little qualification to show. And worst still, a lot of these men have terrible track records of being awful partners to very many women. And you know what? Some women are doing it now too, they are on Facebook live, Instagram live! Talking about how you ought to ‘do’ your man!
Don’t get me wrong we can learn so much from other people, but in my opinion the tell-tale signs of a fraud is when you hear their advice predominantly directed at the woman; cook more, serve him, kneel when you serve…

Scientists have created an “artificial womb” in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.
So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.
“We’ve been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model,” says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.
“They’ve had normal growth. They’ve had normal lung maturation. They’ve had normal brain maturation. They’ve had normal development in every way that we can measure it,” Flake says.
Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.
“What we tried to do is develop a system that mimics…
