Day 3: Smoothie of the Day: Very Berry Smoothie

Ingredients: Mixed Berries (Strawberries, blueberries, black berries, and raspberries), Vanilla Almond Milk, Lemon, Ginger, Maca Powder, Ice

For this recipe, I think it would have tasted better with Dark Chocolate Soy Milk instead of the almond milk. Also, adding bananas would help it taste better. But it was a refreshing and super healthy drink: 7/10

Featured Blender: Dynablend

When Self magazine asked cancer survivor Monika Allen for permission to use her photo from last year’s LA Marathon, she was excited for the opportunity. Allen wore a tutu and Wonder Woman shirt during the race, which fell in the midst of her chemotherapy, because she said it gave her motivation.  Allen didn’t expect to be mocked by the magazine, though. Self published her photo on the lame side of its “BS Meter” and wrote, “People think these froufrou skirts make you run faster. Now, if you told us they made people run away from you faster, maybe we would believe it.” Self editor-in-chief Lucy Danziger later apologized, saying “I am personally mortified. I had no idea that Monika had been through cancer… It was a stupid mistake.”

This is why, when asking for permission for photos, you don’t use those photos to mock the subject.

The incident is particularly unsettling for two reasons: At its root is a testament to what a cruel and indiscriminate predator depression is, capable of consuming even humanity’s greatest minds, yet the uncompassionate response illustrates just how poorly we understand the condition. Above all, however, embedded in the media’s treatment of Virginia’s suicide is a grotesque reminder that the only thing more morally repugnant than passing judgment on another human being’s private struggle and inner world, than choosing self-righteousness over compassionate understanding, is doing so publicly, and in the commercial media. What a spectacular failing of the awareness that it’s far more rewarding to understand than to be right.

Humorous responses to Sandy’s destruction rose, peaked, and eventually fell over the course of 100 days. We find that temporal distance creates a comedic sweet spot. A tragic event is difficult to joke about at first, but the passage of time initially increases humor as the event becomes less threatening. Eventually, however, distance decreases humor by making the event seem completely benign.
