METRIC: Pagans in Vegas
I know everyone is yammering about Lana Del Ray's new release, but I'm more impressed with Metric's sixth LP and their first in three years. It's a winner. -L.T.
Green chemistry is akin to baking. Both require precision and specific ingredients to produce the desired results. The trick is figuring out exactly which ingredients to use, and in what combinations.
In a new paper published in the journal Science, a UC Santa Barbara organic chemistry team led by Bruce Lipshutz shows how they tweaked the recipe for an ecofriendly and less expensive version of a metal-based chemical reaction that is essential in the manufacture of several pharmaceuticals.
While the researchers' green chemistry approach eliminated heat input and the need for organic solvents as a reaction medium, the reaction still required an expensive amount of the precious metal catalyst palladium. Unfortunately, palladium is one of several metallic elements considered endangered. Though the Earth contains ample amounts, it is economically feasible to mine only the limited amount that exists close to the surface.

FROM OUR BABES OVER AT REFINERY29:
It has been a very long time since fishnet tights have been en vogue. Since Taylor Momsen turned “bad” on Gossip Girl, and wearing your ripped tights with cut-offs and platform black booties was a very viable Friday-night outfit, fishnets haven’t really made their way out of the sock drawer since then. However, at the Creatures of the Wind show on Thursday, our fingers started itching. The large-knit fishnet tights were paired with everything from long pants to short skirts, and gave the already stellar Katharine-Hepburn-’40s-meets-Melanie-Griffith-’80s silhouettes an extra squeeze of cool.
The key to these fishnets looking modern instead of dated is to go for a loose, large web instead of something with a smaller knit. Then, according to Creatures of the Wind, you can literally pair them with anything — even open-toe sandals (avoid fishnets that have a visible footbed or toe-catch to them, for maximum impact). Click through to get yourself convinced: You'll be overturning your own sock drawer to find your pair before the end.

Matching mother and child poodle hairdos. A goth on the beach. Screaming kids.
They're included among more than 200 cringe- and laugh-worthy photos going on exhibit this week in Peoria, Illinois, as part of a national tour featuring awkward family photos.
The exhibit is a spinoff of the popular website, AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com, founded in 2009 by two longtime friends as a place for people to share their own family photos. The website's creators, Michael Bender and Dough Chernack, organized the exhibition and provided some of the site's most famously awkward photos, the museum said.
"Awkward Family Photos: The Exhibition" opens Tuesday at the Peoria Riverfront Museum and continues through Nov. 15. Museum curator Kristan McKinsey says many of the photos were unintentionally awkward, shot as formal family portraits. The (Peoria) Journal Star reports that visitors will be able to take their own awkward photos and submit them to the museum's awkward family photo Facebook contest.

If you are a resident of Jacksonville, Florida or just passing through -a "MUST STOP" is Jacksonville's very own BOLD BEAN COFFEE ROASTERS.

The founder of Dr. Hauschka manufacturer WALA Heilmittel gave his company a mission that continues to this day. Dr. Rudolf Hauschka's goal "to support the healing of humanity and the earth" informs not only the culture of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and its manufacturer, WALA Heilmittel, but also the company's business practices, production methods and the very nature of the company's products themselves.
Pioneers and “Rebels”
The manufacturer of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care began exclusively as a developer of natural medicines in 1935. In the early days of its history, the company was considered avant-garde and pioneering in a society that was barely aware of homeopathic preparations.
This was not the case everywhere. Anthroposophic doctors were one of the primary groups to enthusiastically seize upon Rudolf Hauschka’s procedure for producing natural medicines without using alcohol as a preservative. The demand for his preparations encouraged Dr. Hauschka to establish his company in 1935 and open subsidiaries in Vienna and London shortly thereafter. Following a ban by the Nazi Party and the imprisonment of Dr. Hauschka and his future wife Dr. Margarethe Stavenhagen, the company was relocated several times before finally settling in Bad Boll/Eckwälden in 1950, where its offices, gardens and farms remain today.
“When we developed these unconventional skin care products we naturally felt like rebels.”
Here at VERDE ECO-SALON we consider ourselves to be a well-rounded bunch. We believe that beauty on the outside begins with treating yourself kindly on the inside. With this said, if you haven't already heard the news --there is a new Superfood making waves across the good ol' U.S.A.
MOVE OVER QUINOA ... There is a new kid in town and her name is TEFF.
TEFF is a fine grain—about the size of a poppy seed—that comes in a variety of colors, from white and red to dark brown. TEFF grows predominantly in Ethiopia and Eritrea, and thrives even in difficult climates. The grain has a very mild, nutty flavor, and it packs a serious nutritional punch. TEFF has an excellent balance of amino acids, and it is also high in protein, calcium, and iron. Ground into flour, TEFF is used to make the traditional bread, injera: a flat, pancake-like, fermented bread that complements the exotic spices found in the regional food. It can also be ground into flour to make an excellent gluten-free flour alternative, and can be used to make pie crusts, cookies, breads, and an assortment of other baked goods.
