Today - and everyday, really - we’re thankful for the people that make up the Fairtrade family! Whether they be farmers and workers, traders and businesses, consumers and activists and everyone in between, we’re grateful for all of the hard work, dedication and support to make trade fairer.
Today’s entry in ‘What’s Fair’ comes from Jose Luis Zarate. As a long-term consultant for a Fairtrade cooperative in Mexico, Zarate developed a strong impression of fair trade’s strengths and weaknesses. He is currently program director at Coffee Kids, an influential NGO that works to improve…
Maybe you didn’t see it, but Jose Luis rocks.
You gotta’ look at this one for a while to catch it…
MY NEW FAVORITE BLOG - GREAT COLLECTING GOODNESS
Kenn used to work at The Exclusive Company. Kenn has one of the largest music collections I have ever been privy to. On certain days at the mailhouse I worked at, Kenn would arrive and pull a CD out of his knapsack.
“This my friend, you will love,” he…

THE Social Media Brainwashes
- Most TV shows give teens the work idea of life
- They give ideas on how not to think for yourself
- Makes women look like simple sex objects
- Says that you should care what others says
- If your friends do it it’s cool.
Well they are wrong

Oh and don’t try to be way to different.
In the desperate attempts to try to be different from everyone else, you become part of the people you yourself were trying to separate from in the first place. Follow your mind. Not your friends.
What happened to video games?
Remember the 8 bit and 16 bit era?
I now I am not the only one who thinks games today suck.
I am not ashamed that I still play Gameboy and have my Super Nintendo!
Keep your Xbox 360!
A year later, I’d just like to commemorate the great honor of seeing Thomas Gottschalk in a parade. Thank you, Jesus.
Still slightly pissed he didn’t throw Haribo.
A few people showed up to see the president in Wisconsin today.

Rebranding the cops: the new Milwaukee Police Department website has a striking design.
I mean it’s rad as a site, right? But I still get creeped out by the increase in depictions of a militaristic police force.

The El Zacatón sinkhole is the deepest water-filled sinkhole in the world. It was long considered to be bottomless, but in 1997 NASA solved the pit’s mystery when it sent an underwater robot into the waters and found the depth of El Zacatón to be 1,112 feet. The clear, blue water is highly mineralized and has a sulphurous odor, and it’s quite warm — averaging 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The sinkhole’s name comes from the free-floating islands of zacate grass that blow across the lake in the wind.

Holy crap this is insane.
