The Lillipad has been designed and constructed for functionality, strength, stability, durability and aesthetic appeal. The Lillipad is made in small batches in New Zealand. We use the best quality 12 mm and 17 mm thick plywood sourced from New Zealand’s sustainably grown Radiata Pine timber plantations. We coat the Lillipads with a deep penetrating wood oil which is waterproof, mildew resistant and will last many years. The footpads and step have a naturally slip resistant surface when dry.
James Taranto correctly excoriates the feminist philosophy that served as the foundation for Hilary Rosen's epically stupid attack on Ann Romney : In truth, anti-momism was the very heart of "The Feminine Mystique." Friedan's argument was that motherhood and homemaking were soul-deadening occupations and that pursuing a professional career was the way for a woman to "become complete."

The scorecard showcases ethical family farms, and their brands, and exposes factory farm producers and brands in grocery store coolers that threaten to take over organic livestock agriculture. Some of the factory farm operators literally raise millions of birds (both conventional and organic) with as many as 85,000 “organic” hens in single buildings.
Seriously folks, this sort of distortion cannot exist in anything approaching a free market. The IFHP just released the data for 2012. And yes, once again, the numbers are shocking. This is the fundamental fact of American health care: We pay much, much more than other countries do for the exact same things. For a detailed explanation of why, see this article. But this post isn’t about the why.
I mean it. We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is.

(NaturalNews) There have been several obscure studies performed and written up that have discovered natural nutrients that fight BPA toxicity. Bisphenol-A (BPA) has become epidemic in our plastic reliant society. It not only affects our current population, but there is also evidence that it is passed on to newborns as well.
