Sustainability Now Key Selling Point for Business Schools Attracting Students
Written by Administrator   
Tuesday, 03 March 2015 09:38


After years of neglect, students are now demanding business courses include sustainability on the syllabus. It has become increasingly accepted in corporate boardrooms that sustainability is an important business issue, but the business schools that train the managers of tomorrow – and the students themselves – have not always kept pace. In the past, issues such as climate change, labor condition and access to resources were not widely recognized as factors that could make a big difference to the bottom line and students were encouraged to focus on maximizing shareholder value, short-term profits and the narrow interests of individual businesses rather than society and the economy as a whole.

Herbs to the RESCUE for Winter Blues...

Here are some tips for days of cloudy, grey coldness winter days bring. Break out the power of scent to overcome the blues.  By diffusing or dabbing a few drops of essential oils you can help to create emotionally uplifting effect around your home. Here’s a list of fragrances you might want to try:

1. Citruses: The essential oils of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, and oil are familiar scents that bring sunshine to the heart.  In addition to using the essential oils extracted from these fruits in the ways mentioned above, peeling (and consuming) these fruits, can provide a similar, immediate mood enhancing surge.  Other citrus-derived oils include bergamot and neroli.

2. Happy herbs and spices: Rosemary, sweet basil, and cinnamon oils are also familiar scents that, for many, induce a sense a well-being.  Another, simmer a pot of water sprinkled with a spoonful of cinnamon on your stovetop to create a yummy, comforting fragrance in your home.

3. Mints: The scents of peppermint and spearmint are both familiar and refreshing to many people.

4. Florals: Lavender and geranium oils are recommended for emotional uplift.  While the scent of lavender is familiar to many, geranium oil is frequently used in massage oil blends and in many aromatherapy therapeutic treatments. A few friendly warnings: these oils are powerful, so a few drops go a long way. Also, to avoid skin irritation, do not apply oils directly to skin.  Always mix them in a massage-grade carrier oil.

California Parks System Faces Tough Road To Sustainability
Written by Administrator   
Saturday, 28 February 2015 09:31


Governor Jerry Brown wants the California State Parks system to be self-supporting. But only six of the 279 parks bring in more money than they cost to run – and the entire system lost nearly $300 million last fiscal year. It may be a mark of how dysfunctional the State Parks system has been that park-by-park revenue and expense data are only now available for the first time. The numbers arrived as the independent Parks Forward Commission released recommendations to overhaul the department – two and a half years after a financial scandal and budget problems rocked the parks system.

Monday, 02 March 2015 14:36


Recipe: 1 can black beans /1 can chickpeas /1 small onion, chopped /1 cup cooked brown rice /3 tablespoons flour, (use buckwheat for gluten-free) /juice of 1 lemon /1 teaspoon sea salt
/1 tablespoon chile powder /½ – ¾ cup cornmeal /2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil / fresh ground black pepper to taste.

Rinse and drain the black beans and chickpeas. Place half of each along with the chopped onion in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Set aside. Place the rest of the beans in a medium-size bowl and using a potato masher (or a fork) mash the beans. Next add the bean/onion mixture to the bowl, along with the brown rice, flour, lemon juice, chile powder, and salt. Stir until well-combined. Add 1/2 cup of the cornmeal and stir again. Let the ingredients sit for a bit to allow the cornmeal to absorb any moisture. If the mixture still seems too wet, add more cornmeal until you achieve the desired consistency. Shape the bean dough into patties. Create 6 to 8 patties. Heat oven to 250 degrees. While the oven is warming, in medium-sized skillet, add oil, and set to medium-high heat. When warm, add patties. Let the patties cook about 5 minutes until brown on the bottom and then flip. Cook the other side another 5 minutes. Place the patties in an oven-safe pan and bake in the warmed oven for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Wine: It Has Benefits...
Written by Alicia Belmonte   
Friday, 27 February 2015 14:30

Many of us love a glass of red wine once in a while. But do we know what it provides for us health wise?  Many studies have suggested beneficial effects on the heart, anti aging, and even mental health.  According to Cornell University archeologists, wine making began sometime between 6000-4000 B. C. in Mesopotamia and coastal areas of the Caspian Sea.  Hippocrates even promoted wine as a part of a healthy diet.  Woman absorb alcohol more rapidly than men due to lower body water content and different levels of stomach enzymes.  So moderation for a man may be 2 glasses and for a woman 1 (depending on weight).  A glass of wine, each night with dinner, according to "Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010" is considered healthy.  So, check out wine tasting or sip on a glass of wine with friends or family.  In moderation your body and spirit with benefit.
