Recycling in the USA
Why is it that the United States of America has not fully embraced recycling?
Do industry lobbyists have enough of a grip on US policy such that an effective recycling campaign has yet to be implemented?
Do Americans not see recycling as a viable, albeit partial, solution to resource dependence?
It seems that American citizens are not concerned that the vast majority of their products are produced outside of their own country. Having imported all these materials which can be re-used or recycled you would think they would see an opportunity to reduce their dependence and increase the lifespan of their land fills by reducing the amount of material they put in them. Throughout all of my travels I have yet to come across an American city that has an effective system in place to utilize the gluttony of recyclable materials which get deposited into their landfills.

The stories we tell define history. So who gets the mic in America?
- History is written by lions. But it's also recorded by lambs.
- In order to understand American history, we need to look at the events of the past as more prismatic than the narrative given to us in high school textbooks.
- Including different voices can paint a more full and vibrant portrait of America. Which is why more walks of American life can and should be storytellers.
There is no doubt that the historical Jesus, the man who was executed by the Roman State in the first century CE, was a brown-skinned, Middle Eastern Jew.
I grew up in a Christian home, where a photo of Jesus hung on my bedroom wall. I still have it. It is schmaltzy and rather tacky in that 1970s kind of way, but as a little girl I loved it. In this picture, Jesus looks kind and gentle, he gazes down at me lovingly. He is also light-haired, blue-eyed, and very white.
