Green Tip of the Week: Eat your greens!

Still not convinced? Eating vegetables can also reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer while helping you lose weight.

QueerVentures: My search for relevance in China

For those of you who know me, I’m a pretty progressive liberal, a kind of peace-and-love guy, through almost every situation; I’m pro-environment, pro-equality, pro-choice, pro-open borders, pro-pretty much everything.

Typically, I have no qualms about being an advocate in these areas of life.

Since residing in China the last couple of months, however, I find myself experiencing new emotions and handling situations differently, where I forcefully silence my out-spoken “pro-hippie” mentality.
