John Mackey’s views on health care, much as I disagree with them, will not prevent me from shopping at Whole Foods. I can understand why people would want to boycott, but it’s important to play out the hypothetical consequences of a successful boycott. Whole Foods is not perfect, however if they were to disappear, the cause of improving Americans’ health by building an alternative food system, based on more fresh food, pastured and humanely raised meats and sustainable agriculture, would suffer. I happen to believe health care reform has the potential to drive big changes in the food system, and to enlist the health care industry in the fight to reform agriculture. How? Because if health insurers can no longer pick and choose their clients, and throw sick people out, they will develop a much stronger interest in prevention, which is to say, in changing the way America feeds itself. When health insurers realize they will make thousands more in profits for every case of type II diabetes they can prevent, they will develop a strong interest in things like corn subsidies, local food systems, farmer’s markets, school lunch, public health campaigns about soda, etc. So Mackey is wrong on health care, but Whole Foods is often right about food, and their support for the farmers matters more to me than the political views of their founder. I haven’t examined the political views of all the retailers who feed me, but I can imagine having a lot of eating problems if I make them a litmus test.
The film centers on the dancers, Micah (Marques Houston), Natalie (Brenda Song) and Jay (Mykal Anthony Bean). Micah is a very skilled dancer and is the leader of dance crew, “The Trojans” while his former best friend Jay is the leader of “The Warriors”. Micah, Jay and their crews have been rivals for a very long time and because of the ban on battle dancing, the crews have created an underground world named “Boogie Town” in order to continue battle dancing. Micah then meets Jay’s beautiful young sister, Natalie at a popular restaurant who has just arrived home from college. Natalie, unaware that this is her brother’s rival invites him to dinner and he accepts. Soon after the dinner, the two become a romantic couple and after Natalie realizes that her boyfriend is her brother’s biggest rival, she tries her best to keep their relationship a secret with the help of Micah. Natalie and Micah become a modern day Romeo and Juliet and are aware of the consequences of being seen having a romantic relationship but are deeply in love with each other. Both Micah and Jay have several mysterious and supernatural powers such as “ENERGY” and “HERCULEAN”. Chief Salisbury and the SG7 created a special unit in the police department called the “Boogie Police”, a unit that are specially trained to track down and capture anyone who is caught dance battling in New York. The SG7 is after Micah and Jay because they want to use their blood to create super soldiers for an upcoming war (World War III). Natalie then explains to Micah that she knows he is a Herculean and tells him to go see a man named Genesis, and that he will answer all his questions. Micah takes the number and goes to see him. He gets no answers. Instead Genesis tells him that he is not ready yet and that when he is, he will see him then. The respectful rivalry between the two crews, goes past battle dancing and becomes a dangerous war when Jay finds out that his young sister Natalie is having a romantic relationship with his enemy. In the end, Natalie experiences a painful ending and after Natalie’s painful ending Genesis tells Micah that he is ready.” —Boogie Town - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is pretty funny.
differs from most other liberal arts in that it is not constricted by the singular
political perspective ever so entrenched in academe. Thus, it behooves the
modern renaissance 2.0 person-in-training to see the world as composed of
the true dichotomies—conservatives and liberals, bloggers and journalists,
Friendster and MySpace, vapidity and profundity, and greatness and failure.
And obviously, a future contributor to society needs to display vim and pizazz
in order to make a contribution. After all, inaccuracy can start wars—or end
myself, on the topic of “Inaccuracy,” from the awesome book New Liberal Arts
Surprised I didn’t post this before.
This is pretty amazing.
