Second, as humans, we tend to be less sensitive to harms that occur away from us than those occurring in our backyard. It is easier for people to hire a company (by actively shopping there) to make clothes using sweatshop labor than to hire the workers directly, lock them in the basement, and never offer them bathroom breaks. Humans are wired to not harm each other. Also, becoming SMART certified is very expensive: For all levels except , it costs $7500 for certification; is $10,000.

Mexican soccer fans may not be in the mood for celebrating much this week, after the country’s historic loss to Chile on Saturday night in the Copa America quarterfinals. In happier times, though, my compatriots are known for two very different celebrations. The first one is the “Mexican wave.” A beautiful feat of coordination, the wave was first put on display during the 1986 World Cup finals in Mexico City. Yes, of course I am [considering designing again], but I’m really down to earth with fashion, and I have a business and brand oriented mind. I know what it takes to make a brand strongRead More →

According to Wikipedia, CBS commissioned an Americanized take on Park’s fantastic Creature Comforts series back in 2007. The series, a kind of expanded version of his Oscar winning 1989 short film of the same name, details the rich inner lives of zoo animals; Park’s charming and novel approach is to match his meticulously animated Aardman clay creatures with audio interviews which mimic impromptu person on the street surveys. Television, but much to my delight I discovered that Park maintains a very active YouTube channel, with new clay tastic videos posted on a regular basis. What do supporters say it will achieve?The British government claims TTIPRead More →

I honestly thought this whole Anderson Silva wanting to box thing would die down quick, but apparently Roy Jones camp has expressed interest, mainly because of the PPV numbers it would potentially draw. I not joking when I say that Silva probably has a better chance against one of Roy sparring partners. I buy this PPVnonetheless, especially if they mixed it up a little and had boxers entering the cage as well.
