Coasters That Teach You About the Heart 

A coaster can teach you a thing or two about the heart. Literally—the six glass drink rests each depict a different part of the cross-sectioned organ. To see its various chambers and ventricles, simply stack them in order (each is numbered) and admire this hard-working muscle. The scientific decor accessories are now available through Firebox.com. 

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Arizona protects spectacular wilderness in the heart of the Sonoran Desert. The park is the only place in the United States where visitors can see large stands of organ pipe cacti, which can live to be more than 150 years old.

The UN is finally going to declassify transgender as a mental illness
How was this ever a thing?
By Peter Dockrill

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is moving to declassify transgender identity as a mental disorder, as it updates its category of mental illnesses for the first time in decades.

The body, which is the public health agency of the United Nations (UN), is considering making the change in a revised categorisation of mental and behavioural disorders to be released in 2018.

“Stigma associated with both mental disorder and transgender identity has contributed to the precarious legal status, human rights violations, and barriers to appropriate care among transgender people,” says lead researcher Geoffrey Reed from the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

If someone was sick, and needed a liver / kidney / something to live, and asked you for a donation of your own liver / kidney / something to live;

You don’t have to give it to them. Even if they may get sicker, or even die, you have bodily autonomy over yourself and there are real risks to donating and you have to right to say no.

If you are pregnant, and the fetus needs your body to live;

You don’t have to keep it. Even though it wouldn’t live to term. You have bodily autonomy over yourself. There are real risks to pregnancy and childbirth,  both emotional, mental, physical that a lot of people can’t take or don’t want to take. That’s okay. You have the right to an abortion.

Let me feed you: Chia Hemp Pudding with Açaí Sorbet, PB, Macadamia Nuts + Frozen Blueberries.

You have to really love hemp to appreciate this pudding. It has a very distinct flavor. Many folks who are new to this lifestyle may not like it. But it’s oh-so good for you. And once you get the hang of introducing new nourishing foods into your regimen things like hemp begin to taste gooooood.

Chia Hemp Pudding

Ingredients:

1 cup spring water
¼ cup chia seeds
3 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
1-2 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)

Blend the water, hemp seeds, almond butter and syrup until frothy. Pour hemp mylk into a bowl and add chia seeds. Whisk until incorporated and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Whisk again and transfer to a serving cup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

For açaí ice cream I simply blended 2 scoops (about 1 cup) of Açaí Roots sorbet with 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Next, I folded in about ½ cup of frozen blueberries. I then topped the açaí sorbet over the chia pudding and sprinkled chopped macadamias.
