On September 23, 2008, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., urging them to substitute cow’s milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk.
The air is crisp and the leaves are falling. This can only mean one thing - post season baseball. Once again, my beloved Phillies have reached the post season for the second year in a row. Hopefully this season will be more rewarding than last season, when the Phillies got punched out in the first round of the playoffs by the Colorado Rockies.
When corporate gave its Dunder Mifflin branches the mission to collectively lose the most weight as a staff in exchange for three vacation days, some took the task seriously, some not so seriously, and some too seriously. Kelly, for example, reverted to a maple syrup, lemon juice, cian pepper and water cleansing diet which eventually caused her to pass out right off the scale. It'll be worth it when she's in that bakini though.
Hoping she would grasp a concrete metaphor, I compared the FB group to an office room that serves as the hub for the entire office building. Within this single room, there are filing cabinets after filing cabinets of organized paperwork - any documet that a worker could possibly need is in an easy to find spot so as to retreive it quickly and efficiently. There is a bulletin board with memos for all to see, and mailboxes for every worker there. An FB group, I explained to her, is a virtual replacement of this tangible office room example, able to hold virtually an infinite amount of information, excessible to anyone who needs it. "HA!

The film is called Invisible Children because the filmmakers believed the children who are forced to fight in a violent guerilla army were invisible to the United States. With the use of humor and real footage, this film has raised momentous amounts of awareness and even formed a non-profit organization out of high public response.
