It was a snow white color filled sky yesterday. The dry cold air hit my face as I walked to the store to pick up some last minute grocery items for Thanksgiving. Christmas lights lit the street poles and sounds of the Salvation Army's bell rang in my ears. It felt like the holidays. With a grocery bag in one arm, I walked out of the store and standing right in front of me was the red bell.

Ask photojournalists to name a peer they admire, and Sebastião Salgado's name is sure to crop up. The Brazilian is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. As he describes in the talk he gave at TED2013, his attention to detail and his personal attachment to his subjects caused health problems that nearly killed him.

The recordings are free to listen to here for 24 hrs after the live broadcast. There is a full week of guest speakers. Today’s speakers will not be available after 9am PDT USA.

Silver Lake's TheBlack&TheWhite (former As Tall As Lions members Julio Tavarez and Cliff Sarcona) released another single "Where Were You" from their forthcoming EP produced by Justin Kaupp. The track is a serenely grooving almost completely instrumental electro melody that mimics a beat-pad daydreaming about becoming a jazz instrument:
David is one of those guys that looks great in anything . . . a tee shirt & jeans or a jacket & tie . . . doesn’t matter, he wears everything with confidence. I’d call his look classic rebel (with a touch of disheveled thrown in for fun) . . . think James Dean or Steve McQueen. There is nothing trendy about his personal style -- it’s good taste mixed with a casual attitude.
In order for us to break the chain and take back our health we need to educate ourselves and familiarize the next generation with cooking, nutrition and growing plants. No one truly gains respect for anything until they understand how it works and how hard it is to get it.
Last night i attempted to make a potato salad and it didn't turn out as good as i thought it would. Which means we got full from a meal that wasn't worthy of making me full. There was no contentment involved. I decided to redeem myself by making dessert (i do not bake very often) and let's just say that redemption was found!
