Travel is difficult for any vegetarian, extra challenging if you’re going raw. So give thanks to the VegOut App for the iPhone. It finds all the veg friendly restaurants near you using the GPS feature or any zip code you dial in. Its a simple service, but it out-performs the variety of google searches I used to invoke in order to find something decent to stomach during travel days. Nothing ingratiates me into a new city more than knowing where to eat.
We run our office on two macs and an iphone. While Im not an evangelist about mac products, I do love their useability, industrial design and the fact that they dont crash religiously like every other PC I’ve owned. Anyhow, the iphone, despite all its faults (ahem, ATT service) can’t be denied its greatest virtue: Apps. I’ve got my favorites (Wikipanion, Yelp, Twitterific, iConvert, DataCase, GuitarToolKit, Pandora), and my new favortive is VegOut. Highly recommended for veggies, vegans and raw foodists.
Mia Farrow is 9 days into a 3 week hunger strike to support Darfur Refugees. She’s documenting her fast in a series of short YouTube videos and she’ll be on Larry King Live tonight. Mia says she’s looking forward to exposing the horrific genocide in Sudan to more than 250 million viewers. More than anything, she wants you to call the White House and demand action: 202-456-1111.
Im calling now.
Via BoingBoing, “Also striking is Pam Omidyar, a founder of the philanthropic group Humanity United, and the wife of EBay founder Pierre Omidyar. Omidyar has been eating the refugee meals for 18 days, according to her blog on fastdarfur.org.
Evil doers beware!
This goosebumping rendition of a song about hope, sung by the future of hope, made me smile today.
FROM THE SOURCE: A CHOCOLATE fan has taken the biscuit after finding an image of Jesus in a KitKat.
The astonishing vision emerged on Good Friday after a website called for oddball religious discoveries.
The finder told Dutch news site NU.nl: â€œI was amazed. I just took a bite and then I saw the face of Christ in it.”
Other witnesses were less impressed. â€œIt looks more like Darth Vader,â€ said one.
FROM THE SOURCE: If we told you that the formula race car of the future is powered by chocolate, features a body made from potatoes, and a steering wheel made from carrots, you might say weâ€™ve been reading too many childrenâ€™s books. However just such a vehicle exists, and itâ€™s capable of carving through corners at 125mph while actually cleaning the air! The WorldFirst F3 race car is the brainchild of the Warwick Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre and features a bevy of green features that are set to shape the future of motor sport racing.
The vehicle recicles CO2 as part of its fuel efficiency, so yeah, it also cleans the air as it runs, sort of.
I wonder what the biodegradable half-life is on this beast?
FROM THE SITE: Supporters of this strike have pledged not to donate to any federal candidate unless they support the Fair Elections Now Act. Under the Act, congressional elections could be funded by a hybrid of small-dollar donors and public financing–so representatives could spend less time fundraising and more time doing the job they were elected to do.
