Wine Fraud: Conning the Bottle and the Drinker

I love a good glass of wine. A little bit of bubbly champagne or pinot noir and I am your girl. When listening to the Stuff You Should Know podcast while working out, I was intrigued that they were discussing one of my favorite dinner drink.  

I had heard of wine fraud in the past. Thank you Leverage! However, I thought it only happened once in a blue moon and only with notable vintage wines.

Marketing has changed over the years. New technologies and innovations have emerged. New teachings and thinking have emerged as well. This changing world is covered in a recent episode of Girl Boss Radio with Melissa Grady, the CMO of Cadillac. 

Cells at Work: Science and fun!

Who said learning couldn’t be fun? Or at least fun to watch. I came across an anime that proves anime is more than just entertainment. The anime is called Cells at Work!

Watch the protagonist, the red blood cell, try to maneuver her way through the body and make her deliveries. She meets other entities in the body that are working to keep your body in working order. Each entity has a distinct personality and persona so it is dynamic to watch. It has the quirkiness of any other anime show that is true Japanese charm, but easy to go along with

The Mona Lisa: Stuff You Should Know

The Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the world. She was created by the master, Leonardo Da Vinci. I say this painting in person in 2017 when I visited Paris.

Learning About A Death-Row Detective

I have lived in Texas for most of life. Texas has prided itself on a strict conservative values. When it comes to justice system that can mean harsh punishments. In the state of Texas, a guilty man can be sentenced to death. Texas is not the only state in the United States, but it is important to the the setting of this story. In a recent episode on the Economist, they did a special feature on a private detective responsible for helping overturn death penalty cases in Texas. With the title of Lifesaver, you know it was going to be an interesting story. 

Sleep Your Way to Better Health!

It seems like the easiest and obvious way to improve you health in the new year is by making sure you get your sleep. The kind of sleep that leaves you ready to conquer the day. When you can go all day with no naps. However, I can’t remember the number of times I have stared at my ceiling late at night trying to figure out why I can’t sleep. Who else is with me? So maybe it is the great first step toward having a healthier in a new year.

The program is one of a kind. From the friendships you create to the empowering speakers that you hear. As someone who attended for two years, I can say that the results have been extraordinary. I have been able to achieve things such as securing an internship and graduating top of my class. There’s a new confidence and hope for the future that has been instilled me that I owe a lot of credit to the program for. It’s always an incredible experience coming back

Climate Crisis: Is Doomsday Upon Us?

Every day we are seeing more and more evidence of climate change happening before our eyes. We see videos of the floating garbage islands in the ocean that is as large as a small city. The United Nations have written several reports stating that if major changes do not occur then these changes are irreversible. Based on that we see and hear, one would think we may never escape our own creation of dooms. So, TED Talk decided to invite speakers to explore how we can save our planet and if we can do it in time in Climate Crisis. 

Remember the teenager that started the world-wide protest for climate change? Greta Thunberg is the first speaker to talk about climate change.
