  • Parks are great; they encourage exercise, socializing and enjoyment of the outdoors. Keeping the parks safe for everyone to use has been an ongoing battle throughout the years. This is extremely important to me because my dog and I live in a city. This means that for a large part of the dogs in the community, these parks are a

  • Hey Everyone! I am going to keep this relatively short because I think this will make complete sense to my fellow vegan activists. I get asked a lot what my name is: "Lucy or Laura?". So I am going to tell you why I had the nick name Lucy when my birth name was Laura but also why I am holding

  • I was hired on by two large corporations following my internship. I have spent 4 years of my life working with corporations to produce products. Giving up these career paths improved the quality of my health, the communities health, my independence, and my action towards supporting my values.

  • Interview environments often put the pressure on the candidate(s). In some cases, this makes sense, life can be competitive. However, I believe a more successful investment that an interview process would benefit from  would consist of levelling the playing field. By this, I mean, after the candidate is done ‘wowing’ a company during the interview questions from the employer, they

  • As a vegan, my stance on abortions may come as a surprise

  • One of my all time favorite dessert recipes. They can taste as rich and chocolaty as you like, but they are actually healthy and beneficial for your body. One major benefit that I take notice to is the relief it can give your digestive track. Nobody likes not being able to go, and it's not healthy for us. But there

  • Why would we continue to love someone who is toxic to us? They may do things that are harmful to us emotionally or maybe physically, however, they remain a sentient being.

  • You may think, how is it possible to listen to another species if they don't speak our verbal language? This is a common excuse I hear.

  • To support murder and then flaunt a dead person around as a fashion accessory is disgusting. I will admit I had worn fur and animal products. It was a social norm that was encouraged by society. Unfortunately, the industry has created the idea that it is acceptable and a 'luxury' for consumers to wear fur. Yes, fur is beautiful and

  • Please note, if you are on medication for depression, I am not advising you to go off prescribed treatments. I am suggesting the re-enforcement of nutrients for your body.

  • Intentionally or not, humans are currently considered a super predator [1] to other animals and are considered an unsustainable threat to the ecosystem. It would make sense for other animals to fear us. We have adopted the theory that animals should stay fearful of humans, in hope to protect and promote conservation of their species. I decided to ask some

  • Justification. There are many ways to try to justify zoo enclosures. The animal gets food, has no visible predators, has somewhere to sleep and live. However, when we apply these justifications- as if it were a human in the enclosure, it would be considered unjust. Humans would rather live free with the possible risk of predators, unknown food sources, or maybe

  • This may be my most vulnerable and personal post yet. This is my personal experience, please read without judgment. I believe this message and stigma should be broken and I hope this post will help defeat it. Here I am, raw and honest. Here I am, raw and honest. What you may not know is I fight for my life.

  • Common weeds are found to be beneficial from a medicinal and nutritional prospective. Yet, we are usually in a hurry to eliminate them.

Of course this has to be my first pick. Everything from

  • Questions to Think About: Is a gradual diet change actually helpful compared to a sudden diet change? How helpful or necessary, is it?

  • 1. In The Work Field Many employees blame their employers for their unhappiness. If you have a full-time commitment to something, it is likely to influence your quality of life. Therefore, also influencing the company/corporation strength that we work for. Our work/employment habits pass onto their surroundings and to the future generations. With this in mind, I would like to discuss

  • You're going to want to ditch your ego for this one. Your life could depend on it. Have you ever heard anyone say "It's just a dumb cat"? I bet you've heard similar statements, not just about cats, but about animals in general. I have. Honestly, it's pretty embarrassing to originate from a species that says this statement. I have noticed similar

  • We are great at pointing fingers and disciplining others. I am totally guilty of it-- everyone is. It is bred in our culture to act in such a way.
