Duke strikes again!
You may recall just a couple of weeks ago that Duke University in North Carolina announced an initiative to encourage students to go meatless this February, to help reduce their environmental footprint.
Now, we receive news that both Duke and neighboring school UNC Chapel Hill will be asking incoming students to read Jonathan Safran Foer’s pro-vegetarian book Eating Animals for summer reading!
Of course, the book is brilliant enough on its own to warrant being chosen as part of the curriculum, but I can’t help thinking that some of peta2′s recent activities, like our high-profile “Is Eating Meat Ethical?” debate at UNC last fall, may have helped to get the conversation started.
Either way, to celebrate, here’s one of my favorite clips, of the book’s author explaining why he thinks eating meat will gradually fall out of fashion, and that people who eat animals will feel increasingly uncomfortable about doing so.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
