Alright, even in the holistic health world, we tend to like our gadgets. You go to yoga class, and the soft, calming music is coming from a never-skipping iPod. Everyone checks their iPhone or Blackberry right before and minutes after class. Don’t forget to take it hiking in places like Mt. Tamalpais, CA, whether or not you get a signal (my friend always has his). Ah, yes, blissful living through technology. Well, we also must live in the real world. So we need some real time applications, too, damnit. Lo and behold, it’s the 20 iPhone Apps That Contribute to Our Health and Wellness! Now you too can be healthy with just the flick of a button!
Yep, those Freakonomics guys are at it again. This time, they say that prostitution is the thing to do (especially if your white, “fall into it,” and love men and sex). See my reaction here.

Wonder what the Freakonomics guys would have to say about that?
I’ve had a pretty powerful week when it comes to women.

A big thank you to everyone doing their part to not “protect,” but bring justice to women’s lives all over the world.
