When style and speed collide

By Don Saliano, published on Mar 2, 2007

...a few ideas lingered in my head. Service at the bar was better than expected having a very personable and friendly feel. The menu and its portions left an extreme French influence with the sauces of the dishes leaving a more lasting impression than the actual dishes themselves. Overall the restaurant seems to be a nice place catering to hectic businessman enjoying lunch in a faced paced environment, enabling the idea to mesh well with there busy schedule. As for the casual diner, One Market shouldn’t be the first option for a nice relaxed lunch comparable to the prices. (more)

On Kenneth's Anger: The AsianWeek Blunder

By The Dez, published on Mar 1, 2007

...starting from the most obvious down to the least obvious: # Blacks hate us. Every Asian who has ever come across them knows that they take almost every opportunity to hurl racist remarks at us. # In my experience, I would say about 90 percent of blacks I have met, regardless of age or environment, poke fun at the very sight of an Asian. Furthermore, their activity in the media proves their hatred: Rush Hour, Exit Wounds, Hot 97, etc. # Contrary to media depictions, I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years. It's... (more)

What the Hell is AMPAS Smoking?

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 26, 2007

...standards have decreased the amount of carbon monoxide in the atmosphere, but why isn’t anyone happy to see more carbon DIoxide? They should be. Oh, but wait, it is because Al Gore – inventor of the Internet – who says that Carbon Dioxide is just as harmful to the environment as carbon monoxide. (Make sure to hide that private jet you’ve been flying around in, there Mr. Vice-President!) It is Carbon DIoxide that plants use for food and with logging operations planting three trees for every one they cut down, there is more than enough foliage on this... (more)

"In the Raw" Dining at Leaf Cuisine

By pleasurepalate, published on Jan 30, 2007

... to check out some restaurants that specialize in that kind of non-cooking. :) My first experience happened a couple of weeks ago at Leaf Cuisine in Culver City. Standing outside the grass-green painted building that housed Leaf Cuisine already made me feel like I was around a more "natural environment." When you walk in, you can see that the restaurant interior boasts of the earth's colors: green, brown, and orange. It felt like a little oasis amongst the urban setting of city living. I was actually soothed by the restaurant space and the laid back vibe. My meal started off with trying ... (more)

By E Jo, published on Jan 22, 2007

...Every week local volunteers help plant trees in the city streets, local mountains, and school campuses. Trees help to keep the air clean, stabilize terrain, protect wildlife, reduce heat gain and provide nutrition. Planting trees is an excellent way to educate children about the environment and bring the community together. This Saturday there will be four locations for tree planting. In Studio City, they will continue with part two of LA City Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s initiative “Million Trees LA Community Planting” by planting an additional 40 trees. ... (more)

He's going the Distance: An Interview with Harry Perry

By V, published on Jan 9, 2007

...agents where they're making a lot of money. As soon as you're off the radio, the deal is over. They're done with you. Yeah, so you have to like, solve all these questions. But for you as an artist, your life has to continue. You have to continue what you do. (Indicating himself and the environment around him), this is one of the answers to those questions. And you have been instrumental, I read, in the landmark, Californian case that allows buskers and street artists the right to be able to perform and sell their own works in the public domain and... Yes, out of desperation. You... (more)

Riding Along in My Automobile, No Baby beside Me at the Wheel

By V, published on Dec 8, 2006

...decade, the USA leads the world in car ownership. There are 776 cars for every 1000 people and approximately half of all the petroleum refined in the U.S.A. is used for motor vehicles and their infrastructure. It is of course necessary for us to be mobile, but the resulting impact on the environment is great. In the U.S.A. alone, the transport sector accounts for 30% of our total greenhouse gas emissions. There are many countries all over the world where public transport systems are the primary method of transport. In cities such as London, Tokyo, Madrid and Paris, a public... (more)

Environment Shines on New Fashion Bags

By Alethea, published on Dec 5, 2006

There isn’t anything innovative about changing baby diapers, unless you’re some of the new dads sporting the latest trend in diaper bags. Forget the stylish diaper vests or the “masculine” dark colored diaper bags, these new bags are made out of truck and tractor tire inner tubes, trimmed with hemp and include a battery operated light. In fact, there’s a whole line of these handcrafted, recycled bags including a variety of purses, Ipod cases, DVD cases, baby bags, totes and messenger bags. The inner tubes that make the bags are collected from tire centers before the tires are discarded.... (more)

The Fresh Princess of Bel-Air

By V, published on Dec 3, 2006

... cruiser Mathilda, most everywhere these days. When I am riding her, I feel free and cheerful. The wind on my face and in my ears lifts my spirits completely. I also love that the street scape perspective that riding a bicycle provides (and driving in a car does not), allows me to relate to my environment as both an observer and an active participant but at a greater velocity than that of a pedestrian. In fact, my new favorite method of movement has influenced me so greatly, that I now get 'bike legs' like the boating set get 'sea legs'. I walk about my house with paces that resemble... (more)

Viva La Red Rubber Band

By John Wolf, published on Nov 20, 2006

...idea was it would bring more attention therefore inviting more dialogue an interaction. I asked, “If I changed it to a red one, would you wear one and carry the torch?” They agreed, therefore the Red Rubber Band Movement was born! Living in Los Angeles, we are in a perfect environment for world behavior modification. According to the latest census, Los Angeles is made up of 36.2% foreign born, 54.1% language other than English spoken, 46.5 % Hispanic/Latino, and 29.9% White Non-Hispanic and 12.9% Asian.
