Where Do You Get Your PROTEIN On A Vegan Diet? | Dr  Greger of Nutritionfacts.org

Protein can be a great concern when considering a vegan diet- where do you get it?  How much is enough? This video is the first in a series addressing the most common nutritional concerns for a vegan diet.  I’m honored to be joined by Michael Greger, M.D. of nutritionfacts.org to demystify vegan protein sources.  To track your own protein, check out Cronometer here: http://www.BiteSizeVegan.com/Cronometer

You all seem pretty stressed all the time, have you ever considered that running is making your lives worse? Like why are you killing yourselves to stay in love with the sport if maybe its better if you aren't?

Haha I’m not really sure where this is coming from?? I would say our personal posts are generally pretty cheerful - busy, sure, but that’s just kind of inevitable if you’re a student athlete

[edit] HI it’s karina, i don’t know who answered this q before, but i have a big distaste for whoever asked it because i think you’re being snarky for the sake of being harsh and snarky with no real basis for it at all. if you followed this blog for over half a second, you’d know i’m running FOR STANFORD and i’m getting an education at stanford because i run and I DAMN LOVE IT. you know why i might ‘seem pretty stressed all the time’ (though i honestly don’t think i do)? maaaaaaaaybe, MAYBE it’s because there’s an entire country between me and my family when i’d literally NEVER been away from them for more than 3 days…? i’m trying to grow and learn and make a whole new life, and i’m NOT somebody that ever lets go of things. maybe because i had to adjust to a new coach and new team and new training and it was the hardest thing i have ever had to do and just when i was getting the hang of it, I GOT A FUCKING STRESS REACTION. and i essentially missed the entire season where i would FINALLY show why i was recruited here. ya, maybe i haven’t seemed as ‘in love with the sport’ lately. maybe that’s because i’ve been tending to/healing/and now preventing a reoccurrence of this injury for MONTHS, and it’s hard, but i’m trying to keep the faith. sorry if i ~seem like~ i’m having trouble keeping the faith when i’m sweating my ass off on a bike 3,000 miles away from the beat-up sidewalk i miss running on in northeast-fucking-massachusetts. “you have the potential to be one of the best runners in the U.S. over the next several years.” ya, maybe it’s better if i stop running, right anon? wrong.

sorry if you weren’t trying to be snarky. this was a strong answer.. i guess i’m just really defensive of this?

Service for what?

Well it usually changes everytime I do a type of service, although in the past I have gone to a lepracy centre and provided them with care and food for day in the oldest village of india, taught children who do not get a good education, built houses in cambodia, went to a carehome and helped around, cleaned beaches of Bangladesh, organized fundraisers for several different organizations or causes, created presentations and awareness for other causes, and etc. xx 

Why do posh, privately educated actors get all the plaudits, when there are real, proper British actors who’ve been grafting away for years, acting their hearts out day in day out. Think of Danny Dyer in Eastenders. Martin Clunes in Doc Marten. Neil Morrisey in whatever he’s been in. Nicholas Lyndhurst in Goodnight, Sweetheart. It’s a damn shame.

i would really like commissions because 1) it gives me a reason to draw 2) it helps me pay bills i can otherwise not pay

my mom doesn’t want me working because she wants me to focus on getting an education so this is really my only way of currently making money pls help

People go to college because not going to college carries a penalty. College is a purchased loyalty oath to an imagined employer. College shows you are serious enough about your life to risk ruining it early on. College is a promise the economy does not keep - but not going to college promises you will struggle to survive.

Given the extreme schism that’s developed on Tumblr and across the U.S. since the Michael Brown Grand Jury decision, we’ve gotten a lot of asks about the use of #ferguson tags and if 'Reverse Racism' or 'Reverse Sexism' are things that exist.

In attempt to assuage those questions, we thought it’d probably be a good time for all of us to open a textbook and get educated a moment.

GET EDUCATED: Don't Steal, Kids

That above is the Facebook conversation I had in January with Jordan Imiola.  I don’t know how much clearer I could have made myself.  The fact that he never wrote back raised some alarms so I made a note to check on his website later to make sure he wasn’t lifting my stories.  

I checked today for the first time since that exchange and found this and this Indiegogo campaign.   I watched the video of the cast reading and noticed that one of the stories sounded very familiar.  So, I went to Jordan’s website and downloaded a copy of the pilot episode of his sitcom, “Get Educated.”  Following are a few scenes from his pilot script, each followed by links to my own posts (which are older than his script).  

Exhibit A:

You Suck, Sir: AGING 

Exhibit B:

You Suck, Sir: STICKY SITUATION

EXHIBIT C:

You Suck, Sir: CELL PHONES

EXHIBIT D:

You Suck, Sir: THE CHILDREN

EXHIBIT E:

You Suck, Sir: YOUNG LOVE

As a stand-up comedian, I occasionally see this kind of thing, but thanks to pros like Patton Oswalt and Louie C.K. calling out and shaming joke thieves, this kind of behaviour is now rare.  But the world of entertainment is built on desperation and ambition, so it’s still common for someone with a dearth of ideas to steal other people’s.  In the worlds of stand-up comedy and publishing, these people are known by one term: hacks.     

Jordan Imiola, you’re a hack.  If you were a young person or student, I would quietly admonish you and usher you toward a stronger set of ethics.  But you’re a grown man, so I’m calling you out for trying to profit off my stories.

Because these aren’t just stories.  It’d be one thing if I created these episodes out of thin air and crafted them as I do with my stand-up comedy routines.  I’d be upset, but I wouldn’t take it that personally because I’m not writing serious literature here.  I’d probably be flattered that you thought to steal from me before sending you a strongly worded email.  But this isn’t fiction you took from me—these are pieces of my life.  These are my personal experiences with people whom I cherish—my students.  I often wrote these down in my journals at the conclusions of long, difficult days when the only light in my career was these young people who carried my hopes with them.  These posts represent the best of my experiences in the profession that I love. 

And that’s why I feel violated.  How do you sit there in that Indiegogo video smiling, taking credit for all the writing when you know I politely turned down your request to use my material?  I know it’s 2014, but damn it, I still want to trust the community that I share these stories with.  I love getting messages from readers telling me how the posts moved or connected with them, made them laugh or even “LOL,” and how some of them have been inspired to become teachers.  You Suck, Sir is about sharing, trust, sacrifice, caring, and community and you stripped it of its spirit by reducing it to a few laughs in your sitcom pilot. 

So you, Jordan Imiola, suck.
