A View from Space

Recently, the Linux Foundation interviewed NASA astronaut Christina Koch and it gave a wonderful view into the current state of space travel, technology and our planet. She participated in an all female space walk and talked about a vert interesting concept called the Stereotype Threat where a person who is the victim of discrimination faces more stress than a person who is not.

My favorite quote from the interview from her though, is what she had to say about JavaScript:

“My ultimate favorite thing is to look out the window of course, looking down on every spot that uses JavaScript in the world. Because I am pretty sure there is not a single spot in the world… except maybe in the ocean, where JavaScript is not running.”

Up-Level Humanity, Vegan Living & Jackfruit Tacos

Please all me to introduce some wonderful Vegan Living Artistas into your life. Two wonderful friends (Rebecca Muñoz and Jessica Kubiak) have been recording some great Plant Based Living Recipes on their YouTube Channel that you just have to check out.

They run a great operation called – Culture Society – and when we asked Rebecca why she started this, this is what she said:

“My plant based journey began in 2015 when I made the decision to transform my mind, body, and soul through holistic living. I had struggled with yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, rapid weight gain, allergies, hormonal imbalances, shingles outbreaks, headaches, stress, anxiety…you name it, I struggled with it.  At that point, I was sick and tired of feeling internally drained, imbalanced, and dependent on the pharmaceuticals that were only masking the issues I was having.

After years of experimenting with different methods of healing, I found eastern medicine and other holistic practices that took my healing journey to another level. In 2017, I took the leap and completely transitioned to a full Vegan lifestyle.  A month into my transition, I started to feel and see results that I hadn’t experienced in years.  

At that point, I was committed and determined to completely heal and restore every aspect of my life through plant based living. I found sustainable success through education, personal development, action, and discipline. I implemented as I learned. The more I learned and implemented; the faster I healed. 

I became passionate about teaching the power of plant based living as I continued to restore and heal my own life. My relationship with food completely changed the trajectory of my health. I aspire to teach people how holistic and plant based living can do the same for them.” – Rebecca Muñoz, Founder & Creative Director, Cultured Society.

The Long History of Colonialism in Puerto Rico

Recently NPR did an amazing piece on the history of US Colonialism in Puerto Rico. It’s a great podcast of what happened over 100 years ago to today. Many people are not fully aware of the details of what happened and why the relationship between the US and PR became what it is. From human rights abuses, to straight up murder and corporate take overs, this audio clip covers it all. Check it out:
