The 3 Things I Saw on the Web This Week

Blog Post #55

It’s Friday again (how did that happen?) Well, since it is the end of the work week,  I will share with you some interesting things I found on the internet (just like I did last week!)

Lie to Me

Watch as Marco Tempest, a magician who uses interactive technology and computer graphics in his illusions and presentations, demonstrates his multimedia magic as he talks about the magic of truth and lies.

 

Caught in the Act

The next time you go to a library or bookstore, leave a thoughtful note in a book you enjoyed reading. The next person will discover this friendly message and appreciate your helpful review—possibly leaving one for the next reader as well!

Life Vest Inside sent me this suggestion for this RAOK, in their ezine, Daily Kind Digest. Don’t you think this is a simple and awesome gesture? I can’t wait to do this — and I hope that someday I find such a note in a book!!

What should I wear? Or how I began to think about who makes my clothes.

It’s so easy for us to disregard the reality of the clothing industry, even as we are busy shopping. Do you look at at the label to see where your jeans are made? Who are the people who make them? What are their lives like and why we should think about these and other questions? Watch the trailer for the documentary, The True Cost, to discover some unpleasant truths about the fashion industry and why we should all be more aware of the way our clothes are manufactured and how that impacts those that sew the things we wear.

Read this article about the documentary including an interview with the filmmakers, found on the eco fashion website, Ecouterre.

 

The full documentary is available on Neflix, iTunes and Amazon. Watch it. Also, try googling #whomademyclothes for more information and ways to get involved.

    I love that RAOK! It’s enough to make me read more hard copies rather than ebooks.

      You could write the note and take it to the library and/or bookstore, find the book and leave the note even if you read the ebook!! That’s the beauty of this random act. 🙂
