Grab Bag – February 2009

Random NumbersTime to clean out the Google Reader!  🙂  Here’s an assortment of interesting links that have popped onto the radar:

Food & Nutrition:
An awesome looking recipe for caramel cookie bars using Betty Crocker box mixes.  Can’t wait to try this one!

10 Reasons eating raw is better for your health and the environment.  I found this interesting because the leaders of the yoga teacher certification program I’m in are raw food vegans.  I’m still skeptical, but I’m interested to learn more.

Much more in keeping with my own nutritional philosophy is this little gem on keeping eating simple.  It perfectly illustrated my basic rule of food: food should grow and die.  Food that does not die is not food.

A Little Bit of Awesome:
This guy made a commercial for Trader Joe’s.  If you love Trader Joe’s, you’ll adore this catchy little clip.

New England is the least religious place in the country.  Massachusetts and Maine are #3 and #4 respectively for least religious of all the states.  Another awesome shout-out to the non-believers!

Debunking the myths of creationism in level-headed, logical ways.

How to avoid the most common yoga injuries.  A must for anyone just starting yoga!  Also really helpful for those who have been practicing a long time but could use a refresher on how to keep safe and healthy.

Yoga is proven to help reduce back pain.  (Well, duh!)

Tech Stuff:
Top 10 Facebook privacy settings.  Don’t be an idiot.  You can still share those pics of that wild weekend in South Beach without getting fires.

Ever wondered why your local library doesn’t have it’s catalog online?  (OK, maybe you’ve only wondered this if you’re a librarian.) But it’s still an interesting perspective on the roadblocks proprietary systems can pose to access.
