Diet Fads as Information Cascades Sunday, April 6th, 2008 5:47 pm Contributed by: ceg86 Over the years, diet fads have continued to fill our lives with false hope of losing weight the easy way. Diets including Atkins, the Zone, South Beach, the Low-fat, the Baby Food, the Japanese Food, and the Tabasco Diet have all come and gone, each of them having their time in the limelight as The Diet that works.

When school isn’t cool

Sun, 06 Apr 2008 16:22:33 PDT
Smart is not cool for many Latino students in Silicon Valley, reports the San Jose Mercury News.

Cerebritas - brainiacs. They’re told they’re “losing their culture” - just because Sandra has a 4.0 grade-point average and Bibiana has a 3.5. The put-downs are clear: Smart is not cool. And too ma

Farouk CHI GF1538 Turbo Regular 1 Inch Ceramic Flat Iron Hair Straightener

Sun, 06 Apr 2008 16:34:41 PDT

The narrower version simply lets me flat iron narrow pieces so that they can be done bit by bit. I can’t believe I went all through university without a flat iron of any sort. Why didn’t someone come up with one back then. They would have made a fortune and then there were the sixties/early seventies when EVERYONE wanted stick straight hair. And I had wave

Howdy, y'all. Name's Drew, I'm a Seattle native but am currently living in Knoxville, TN while going to law school (yep another one). I have an odd body (long torso, extremely short/large legs and big hips, combined with a pretty large neck and shoulders when compared with my relatively* small waist) part of what draws me to the formal-ish style of the forum is my inability to find clothes off the rack (more causual clothes in general, which one wouldn't tailor) that are flattering...

The current trends are consistent with the theme of a U.S.-led "economic slowdown" with high inflation, and the "recession trade" has been in effect for a few months so far. The changes in momentum are suggestive, to me, that the "recession trade" has ...

The Ravaging Effects of Capitalism on My Hometowns

Sun, 06 Apr 2008 17:50:45 PDT
Homeless boys in San Jose, Costa Rica An expatriate reflects on the cost of "free trade" for his adopted country of Costa Rica -- and his former home in the States. By Mark Klempner AlterNet What will become of Costa Rica? That's the question on my mind, now that my adopted country has narrowly accepted CAFTA. Our national slogan is "Pura vida!" meaning "pure life," and it's commonly used as an affirmation that life is good. It's easy to understand how such an expression could catch on here:
