The idea of food as medicine is put to the test.
Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.
Degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented – and in many cases reversed – by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.
Despite the profound implications of their findings, their work has remained relatively unknown to the public. Pharmaceutical and Agriculture business are working within the government to keep the science from consumers.
FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.

Incase DSLR Bags
After my trip to Vancouver, I am definitely into this new camera bag by Incase, for the digital photographer.
This carrying case is only $60. If you look around you’ll see thats a good price.
But I’m going to make my own.

1. SWEAT THE DETAILS
You are a professional communicator; act like one. Carefully edit everything you publish: résumés, social media, e-mail, blog posts, letters, text messages, everything. Get a copy of “The Chicago Manual of Style” and keep it handy. Most potential employers and clients don’t appreciate text shorthand, so don’t use it. They won’t be ROTFL, and you will end up SOL.
2. PLAY NICE
People you work with and for will make your blood boil from time to time. Whenever possible, be a pro and take the high road. Avoid burning bridges, as people change jobs more often than they did a generation ago. Your paths may cross again in a much different situation, and having a good working history together will make rehiring you easy. Apply this to your online persona as well. Anonymous jabs are petty—be better than that.
3. DON’T FEAR TYPE; BECOME ITS MASTER
Often, being a good typographer means not making the simple mistakes. To accomplish this, you’ll need a working knowledge of classical typography. Go get one. “The Elements of Typographic Style” by Robert Bringhurst, “Thinking With Type” by Ellen Lupton and “Grid Systems in Graphic Design” by Josef Müller-Brockmann are cover-to-cover must-reads. Repeat after me: “Free fonts from the internet are crap, I will not use them.” Keep saying that.
Keep reading (you won’t regret it).

They know the design laws and rules, and they can (and will) tell you the lineage of a design from the Middle Ages without the slightest provocation. They also work in one of the most vicious of all markets, where plagiarism and creative theft are rampant. Whether they design teapots or trains, the creative issues are all the same.
Creative design is a mix of sweat and inspiration. Having an idea is one thing, turning it into a product design is another. Taking someone else’s design is effectively robbing them of perhaps hundreds of hours of work. This is where ducking the issues, sadly, becomes expedient.
Designers usually have another basic environmental issue which adds to their problems:
Clueless clients who know nothing about the technical issues and less about the design situation. Even when it’s about their own products, they may not understand the significance or values of creative design.
So one teapot looks like another. So what? So everything. A registered design can force an unregistered design off the market. It doesn’t necessarily matter who designed it first, it’s who holds the registration, which is prima facie ownership of the design for statutory purposes.
