FOSTERS NEEDED! Hey all! We are desperate for fosters in NYC, especially those who can take medium and larger sized dogs. By fostering, not only can you help save lives by offering a temporary home, you have lots of fun and look cool doing it! Case in point: Casey Novak (available) and her Badass foster mom, Deb!

Badass is an all-foster rescue network - we have no shelter in NYC.  Our ability to rescue dogs from the South and bring them up to Brooklyn for adoption is entirely dependent on the strength and availability of our foster families. The more great fosters we have, the more dogs we can save! 

If you want to get in on this (we know you do!), please visit our website at www.badassbk.com for Fostering FAQs and an application. Or, come by an adoption event and you can speak with one of our fosters about their experience to get your questions answered! Our next adoption event si tomorrow, September 21st at NYC Pet in Williamsburg. We’ll be there from 11:00am - 1:00pm.

The upper house of  French Parliament voted in favor of banning child beauty pageants (for contestants under 16) as part of a larger bill on women’s rights. The proposal is that anyone found organizing a child beauty pageant would face prison charges and fines of up to $40,000.
Legislators argue that these child pageants negatively influence girls’ body image and sense of self-worth. The hypersexualization of children has sparked controversy in French media before, after a 10-year old was dressed provocatively in a 2010 Vogue spread sparking a dialogue about this very issue.
Similarly, there has been discussion of putting a health warning on heavily photoshopped images in a campaign against eating disorders.
Will the initiatives taken in France start a ripple effect in other countries? Should it be illegal or is this part of freedom of expression?
Meanwhile, The American “glitz” or child pageant industry, including famed “Honey Boo Boo,” is a 5 Billion dollar industry.
What a world.

Invisible Nature

Nearly every day, I see around me a strange and perplexing contradiction of modern living: people concerned about the environment making environmentally harmful choices. Polls routinely show that the large majority of Americans care quite a lot about environmental quality, yet they often behave as if they don’t. In semi-arid California, droughts are common and major rivers are diverted for consumption in homes and on farms; therefore the habitats of various aquatic species are increasingly in peril. Nevertheless, I once met a California woman who flushes each individual facial tissue down the toilet, one every few minutes or so, when she has a cold—and with the tissue, gallons of fresh, clean mountain-river water. Recently, I saw a common grocery store sight: a shopper requesting that his two one-gallon plastic milk containers each be double-bagged in plastic shopping bags—even though the jugs themselves have handles. Keep reading …
