Everywhere USA, July 2016—Why did Ringling Brothers stop using elephants in its circus performances?

After years of criticism from animal rights activists, Feld Entertainment, the parent company of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, announced in 2015 that it would phase out the use of endangered Asian elephants in its circus performances within three years. Then, less than a year later, the company expedited the process and began retiring the last 11 of their pachyderms earlier this summer.

Livonia, Michigan, July 2016—Furry pups Creed, Rosie and Apollo may not know how to use social media, but Facebook posts about their touching stories have landed each of them an adventure trip with their respective owners – along with fundraising and awareness campaigns for their associated charitable causes.

The winning dogs and their owners were selected among more than 2,800 entries in the Path to Adventure Contest, a social media campaign hosted by Pet Supplies Plus, as part of the launch earlier this year of their Redford Naturals dog food brand. Partnering with The Sheppard, LLC, Pet Supplies Plus will send them to the locations of their choice this fall, while along the way helping to raise funds and awareness for non-profit, pet-related causes.

Breakfast Counsel
Health
Wednesday, 25 May 2016 15:02
Everywhere USA, May 2016—While weekend breakfasts are often bigger affairs (and sometimes involve alcohol)—weekdays demand a more utilitarian fare. Most of us are looking for a breakfast that’s quick, transportable and satisfying enough to keep your belly full and mind sharp until lunchtime.

One option, the suggestion of Dr. Walter Willett, chair of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health, is a combination of whole grains, nuts and fruit, plus a bit of yogurt. He adds that berries in particular are an ideal fruit for breakfast (or anytime). Packed with fiber and healthy polyphenols, there’s a lot of research to suggest blueberries, blackberries and their tart cousins are protective against cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer—even the non-gut types like breast cancer.

Everywhere USA, May 2016—Here’s a good way to pick up on some “Zzzzzzzzz’s”.

Levi’s Surprise
Bio-Based
Wednesday, 25 May 2016 14:53
Seattle, Washington, May 2016—Textile technology startup Evrnu™, and global jeanswear leader Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co)recently announced they have created the world’s first jean made from regenerated post-consumer cotton waste.

Using a new, patent-pending recycling technology, discarded consumer waste is converted into renewable fiber. The prototype, in the form of a pair of iconic Levi’s® 511® jeans, is hoped to represent a future where textile waste is reduced and cotton garments are continually regenerated to create a more sustainable world.

Each year in the U.S. alone, 13.1 million tons of textile waste is created and of this 11 million tons ends up in landfills. Until now, there hasn’t been a viable solution that effectively transforms old clothes into new without compromising quality or strength. With Evrnu technology, discarded cotton clothing can be turned into a new cotton-like fiber, creating new possibilities.
