The People’s Record News Update: this week on our dying planet
March 17, 2013

  • In Spain, a majestic sperm whale has been found to have died due to swallowing 40 lbs of plastic. The dead sperm whale that washed up on Spain’s south coast had swallowed 17kg of plastic waste dumped into the sea by farmers tending greenhouses that produce tomatoes and other vegetables for British supermarkets.

    Scientists were amazed to find the 4.5 tonne whale had swallowed 59 different bits of plastic – most of it thick transparent sheeting used to build greenhouses in southern Almeria and Granada. A clothes hanger, an ice-cream tub and bits of mattress were also found. The plastic had eventually blocked the animal’s stomach and killed it.
  • Big Pharma on Friday won the first round of its fight to defeat a European proposal to ban a trio of commonly used pesticides suspected of killing honeybees. The closely watched measure, which calls for a European Union-wide moratorium on three types of neonicotinoid pesticides, failed to secure the needed votes from the 27 EU member states today, a result cheered by the manufacturers of the chemicals.

Capitalism isn’t working - look at what the private industries who hold all the power in our society are doing to the living things on this planet. We need to restructure the way we organize ourselves and we need to do it fast. This is all just so overwhelming.

11-Week Bikini Boot Camp Challenge!
Alright, so here’s the deal. Summer will soon be upon us. Actually, the weather across most of the U.S. is probably telling most of you that it’s already here. But the truth is, it’s only March, which means you still have time to get into beach-ready shape and sculpt your best bikini body! And, you can do it with me! ;)
Fit Sugar recently shared this epic list of 11 boot camp style workouts, all aimed at helping you get ready for bikini season. My goal is to try them all, and I want you to do it with me! Starting today, every Saturday up until June 2nd (11 Saturdays from now) I’ll be completing a new Bikini Boot Camp Workout from the list and posting it here to help remind you to get your bikini bottom in tip top shape! (P.S. Fellas, I know you’re probably not planning to throw on a bikini before you head to the beach, but you can totally join in on this challenge if you want a “beachin’ body!”)
Of course, just one workout a week won’t yield the kind of results we’re looking for here, so remember to use this as an extra supplement to your normal weekly workout routine, which should also include a clean, healthy diet! Deal? Deal!
OK, now mark your calendars… Here’s the schedule!

Saturday, March 24: 10-minute Boot Camp Workout by Jeanette Jenkins
Saturday, March 30: Bikini Body Strength Training from Tone it Up
