Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: Tiny media watchers become consumers. The younger they are, the more relentless they might be to get what they have been told by the media they must have. The media landscape has "evolved" very rapidly over the last two decades, and the speed of its "evolution" is accelerating. Now, children under are twice as likely to watch TV or videos rather than read. Not surprising given that 42% of children have TVs in their bedroom and 70% of daycare centers use a TV during the day. Cognitive and critical thinking skills are being affected. Will your child grow to be a consumer, or a conscious consumer? Few TV or videos teach us to be conscious consumers.

Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: The food industry's job is to make a profit. It is not to care for you or your health. It is the executives of the food producers to make money...the more the better for them (i.e., their financial compensation)and their shareholders. The less they sell, the less money they make. The food industry knows which buttons to push to make you eat more of their food...whether it's healthy or not is irrelevant. In fact, because of the way our bodies are, the more unhealthy the food is, the more you will eat and the more money they will make. Meanwhile, neither the FCC, the FDA or the USDA are in the "business" of protecting you. Despite the presence of some ethical individuals, it is our job to protect ourselves...not theirs.

Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: Children from Cateura (Paraguay) living atop a ongoing commercial landfill, teach us about recycling while tugging our heart strings (pun intended).

Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: The debate on Obamacare has not abated since it being enacted. The debate will probably get even more adversarial as the parties use it in the debate to raise the debt ceiling. Forgotten among the "noise" of the participants is why are healthcare costs so high? Moreover, why are we getting so little for so much? We die earlier (both men and women); we have greater infant mortality; are more obese; have higher rate of diabetes and a myriad of other ills than most other developed countries that spend a lot less per capita than we do. What's going on? Out of control jury verdicts? Not really. Some states have enacted tort reform limiting jury awards. It's effect on health care costs...0.01% (not a typo).

This video does a good job of asking the right questions, giving some answers and referring to unbiased studies.

Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: The Federal Food and Drug Administration says eggs from hens that are allowed outdoors are not safe!  With the FDA's decision to ban raw milk, it is truly a wonder that our farming ancestors survived at all. The USDA National Organic Program mandates that the term "organic", as applied to chickens, means that hens must have access to the outdoors. However, 80% of our "organic" eggs are produced by mega-farms where the mandate is blatantly ignored. In fact, these mega-"farmers" claim that their hens don't want to go outdoors

 

Conscious Consumerism


by Wes Ozier

If you’ve lived in Arizona for a while, you may have heard of the Arcosanti project but don’t really know what it is. If you have been interested in and studying ecodesign and intentional community for a while, you may have heard of the Arcosanti Project but don't know what it is. Some people think the Arcosanti Project is an artist colony, some think it is a commune, some think it is a bell factory and some think it is a city hidden in the desert...

 

Conscious Consumerism


 

This is a non-commercial attempt from www.sanctuaryasia.com to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporates and mindless 'consumers' are combining to destroy life on earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network.

Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: Did you know your water heater consumes as much energy per hour (450 kwh) as your clothes dryer, washing machine, range, refrigerator, dishwasher, freezer, coffeemaker and microwave combined? That 37% of water consumption is used for showers?

Find out where how much energy appliance uses (on average), and where your energy is wasted in your home.

 

Conscious Consumerism


 

Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: California's Proposition 37 requires that genetically modified foods be so labelled. Opponents, particularly Monsanto, claim that GMO foods are "safe" (of course, Monsanto also claimed that Agent Orange was "safe" and we know how well that turned out!). If so, why are they spending tens of millions of dollars trying to defeat Prop 37? If GMO foods are safe, why hide it?

While I always advocate that you vote with your wallet, this is one instance where your vote at the voting booth may make a difference...

Socially Responsible Investing: Empowering An Untapped Resource for Change

by Ann B. Alexander

When you consider the vast amount of money we have invested as individuals, institutions, foundations, non-profits, etc., imagine the effect we could have on how corporations do their business if we weren't "silent investors" but instead used this incredible untapped resource for change in the way things are done. By not using this power, we leave it up to corporations alone to decide what is best for the world. In these economic times, we can clearly see that letting corporations make unbridled decisions is not a great idea...
