In New York City at the Fashion Institute of Technology a “Natural Dye Garden” has opened. It is a project run by the students and was given the support and a grant by the Clinton Global Initiative University. The aim of the garden is to bring awareness and alternatives to the harsh chemicals used in the dying process of fabric. All of the colors are derived from flowers, herbs and vegetables.
There was a time when bone broths were part of every meal in our country. Today with all the artificial meat flavorings in processed food, few of us realize why we should consume them.

Bones are inexpensive and can eliminate the need for costly pieces of meat. Another major benefit is that they aid the liver in eliminating toxins from the body.
The University of Berkley and Microsoft have developed a prototype that makes a digital screen compatible with the users vision. By clipping a certain filter onto a phone, tablet or any other devise, the user is able to download software that will enable them to input their prescription. The filter reacts with the screen to create the corrected vision. They are hoping it will be on the market in five years.
