Coming from the bicycling mecca of Portland, Oregon, Angela Koch knows a thing or two about spokes and wheels. But her interest isn't in how to fix a derailleur gear or change a flat tire. Koch's passion is in educating people about the joy of choosing two wheels for fun and commuting.
That's why we in the D.C. area are lucky to have nabbed her from Portland. Koch is currently the Events & Advocacy Coordinator at popular bike shop Revolution Cycles. She recently took time out of her busy schedule for an email Q&A with Green D.C.Green D.C.: How did you first get involved in bicycle... Read More
I FEEL STRONG
BECAUSE HE PUT THE ALCOHOL IN MY HAND
AND I DIDN'T DRINK IT
DIDN'T THINK TWICE
JUST SAID NO
I STAYED SOBER
DIDN'T GET STONED
I WATCHED AS THE PEOPLE I CALL FRIENDS
LOST THEIR BALANCE
AND LOOKED LIKE FOOLS
BUT FOR ONCE I WASN'T INVOLVED
DIDN'T GIVE IN
AND WHEN THE AMBULANCE CAME
I EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENED
HOW HE HIT HIS HEAD
THANKFULLY HE'S ALIVE
AND NOT DEAD
ONE MISTAKE LEADS TO THE NEXT

Many cultures throughout the world fast for religious reasons and have done so for centuries, and there are still shamanistic tribes out there who fast to achieve altered states of consciousness. These days most of us we curb our carb intake for one reason only; to fit into last summer’s jeans.

My man boobs or ‘Moobs’ were starting to cause me some concern and I needed to go on a diet, something up until then I thought was a ridiculous idea. I reluctantly went in search of a diet plan that would suit me best. The problem... Read More

The sound of children playing in the playground, arguing, shouting, laughing, tells us that they are all having a good time chasing each other, climbing and hiding. All of a sudden all sound stops. Then, a loud scream shatters the silence. It takes five minutes before an adult reaches the scene to find a circle of children standing over a child lying on the ground, apparently unconscious. The children seem unsure what to do. Some are poking the child on the ground hoping for some response. There is none. Others are calling their parents on their cells. Someone suggests calling 911.

New York -- May 2, 2010 -- Sixty-five years ago today, officials added fluoride chemicals into Newburgh, NY's public water supply making residents guinea pigs in a failed experiment to discover whether fluoride could safely reduce tooth decay. It didn't. But political pressure declared it a success. Any high school biology student can find the flaws in this "study." Fluoride researchers are still using our bodies and tax dollars for their own benefit. Ten years later, 1955, researchers reported that newly fluoridated Newburgh children had more bone defects, anemia and earlier female menstruation... Read More
