Fighting the Descent Into Oligarchy with Corporate Social Responsibility

Triple Pundit - Thu, 2014-04-17 21:22

A recent study from political science professors at Princeton and Northwestern concludes that America is, as the incomparable Hamilton Nolan put it, actually more like an oligarchy than a democracy. In other words, it is corporations and wealthy individuals -- not unions, public interest organizations or regular humans -- who control the levers of power in America.

The post Fighting the Descent Into Oligarchy with Corporate Social Responsibility appeared first on Triple Pundit: People, Planet, Profit.

The Insane Plan to “Brighten” the Moon to Save Energy on Lighting at Night

Inhabitat - Thu, 2014-04-17 21:17

Skincare company Foreo has an illuminating idea for saving energy: just increase the moon’s reflectivity to make the night sky brighter. Think of all the electricity savings if we didn’t have to power streetlights and houselights at night. The presumably tongue-in-cheek idea (the company sells a face-cleaning brush called LUNA) proposes coating part of the moon in a reflective surface in order to increase the amount of light it reflects back to the Earth at night.

Joey Ramone Birthday Bash returning to Bowery Electric

Brooklyn Vegan - Thu, 2014-04-17 21:14

To honor Joey Ramone (who would have turned 63 this year) and the Ramones (who celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band this year), the annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash returns. Here's the details:Following the tradition, this year's BASH will take place on May 19th, the actual date of JOEY RAMONES' birthday, which this year falls on a Monday. The evening will be hosted at the Bowery Electric, to allow for a more intimate "up-close-and-personal" setting than in previous years. The venue is located on the corner of the Bowery and Joey Ramone Place, just one block from the location of the original CBGBs.

This year, the BASH is doing something truly unique by engaging fans via social media to participate in the event. The official artwork for the 2014 BIRTHDAY BASH was chosen through online contest submissions from local artists. Winner Marie Laferriere created the cartoon caricature of JOEY in his iconic on-stage persona (see illustration above). Additionally, one undiscovered NY based punk band will be chosen to perform at this year's BASH. The winner will be announced towards the end of April and details about submission can be found on the JOEY RAMONE Facebook Page.

Headlining the 2014 BIRTHDAY BASH will be The Joey Ramone Tribute Band featuring Cheetah Chrome, Glen Matlock, Sic F*cks, George Tabb, Mickey Leigh and surprise guests to be announced. Also sharing the bill are Andy Shernoff, David Peel, The A-Bones, Heap, Gobshites, The Independents (a group JOEY managed), and The Bullys. The Masters of Ceremony will be John Holmstrom, Stig Stench, Monte Melnick, and Peter Aschner. Carrying on the 14 year tradition, Sean O'Sullivan's Punk Pipers will close the show. Additional surprises are anticipated but have not yet been revealed.TIckets to the 14th annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash are on sale now. Net proceeds will benefit the Joey Ramone Foundation for Lymphoma Research.
