Our Fight: Voting is not enough to regain our freedom

protests, unity, citizens, freedom, rights, community, liberty

These recent protests are not just about money and corruption. We, the citizens of this country, have been used as a means to an end. Our rights as human beings and as citizens of this country have been over-shadowed by our role as consumers. We are protesting as citizens of this country because we recognize our power and our role in stopping such injustices from continuing to occur.

Oranges Year Round

manufacturing, food, products, transportation, pollution, life cycle assessment

It is a wonderful feeling to walk into a grocery store and see all the different fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses. The options can be overwhelming, but exciting at the same time because I can eat oranges year-round or eat cheese made in France. But the reality of having oranges year-round is not all good. Transportation of products, for example, is a huge factor in pollution. Plus determining the quality of the food, tracing all of its origins and regulating the industry are concerns we must consider with the year-round access to products all over the world.
