If you're looking for comfy, sustainably made, and cute clothing, you should check out Yala. Yala is based in my hometown (just a few blocks from where I live, in fact!) and I'm a huge fan. It's definitely not cheap, but it's good quality and, I think, worth the investment. Check 'em out!

Excellent, thought-provoking post on the riots in London. ‎"People riot because they have spent their whole lives being told that they are good for nothing, and they realise that together they can do anything – literally, anything at all. People to whom respect has never been shown riot because they feel they have little reason to show respect themselves, and it spreads like fire on a warm summer night."

And a related video: ‎"Have some respect for an old West Indian Negro, and stop accusing me of being a rioter...I don't call it a riot, I call it an insurrection of the masses...of the people."

Image: love this beautiful, bike-tastic poster series.

No words. "Citing the Defense of Marriage Act, the Obama administration denied immigration benefits to a married gay couple from San Francisco and ordered the expulsion of a man who is the primary caregiver to his AIDS-afflicted spouse."

As well written that blog post on the London riots is,you can hardly justify the violence that is happening in London right now.Those yobs aren't interested in voicing out their feelings of being oppressed by 'the rich'-they are just taking the opportunity to loot & steal & cause mayhem. Many small businesses are robbed,innocent people protecting their properties are killed. Hurt students are mugged. The riots are nothing more than crime being conducted on a grand scale.
