blog - upon a fold wheel of life... January 15, 2014 Something very beautiful I just watched and wanted to share. It’s a film by André Gidoin & The Makerie Studio. Molly's Sketchbook: Friendship Bracelets Macraméd friendship bracelets were all the rage when I was growing up in the eighties. All the girls at my school would obsessively make them for one another in a dizzying variety of colors, widths, and patterns. It's amazing, thinking back, that such young girls could make such beautifully intricate accessories. I, of course, tried my hand at making them as well. I would ride my bike down to the five-and-dime store and pick out the most sophisticated color combinations of embroidery floss I could find, but when it came to the actual macramé I never got beyond plain stripes.

Seis rentables Pasos para ser más sostenibles Our manufacturing technologies and the chemistry they employ were developed in a very different era. When our industrial production and consumption systems were developed, global population was more than a third less than today, environmental problems were small and localized, not global and potentially catastrophic as climate disruption and ocean acidification are now, and the level of toxicity and waste were minimal. Under these conditions, businesses had no reason to pay attention to the adverse impacts of what they produce, purchase, or use. To the contrary, people were rightfully thankful for the benefits of burning coal, oil, and gas to runt their organizations, make travel easier, and power the economy. They appreciated cheap, light weight plastics for the ease they provided over heavier metals and glass.

The making of an action hero body - Entertainment - Movies When I was hired to train an actor for an action film, the studio executives would express how important it was to transform their body so they looked like an action hero. That's why I made the decision to utilize the same method of dieting and training I used to win many of my champion body building competitions. Matt Damon and Kevin Spacey were extremely excited to work with me, which made my job a lot easier than it had been with some of my other celebrity clients. I have the actors do weight training in the morning and cardio at night. The purpose of separating the weight training and cardiovascular training for 6 to 9 hours is because weight training causes the body to secrete anabolic hormones (muscle building) and cardiovascular exercises cause the body to secrete catabolic hormones (fat burning).
