I love my iPhone. I love using it, holding it, looking at it. I get a little thrill every time I turn it on. But I don’t love the fact that both AT&T and Verizon have donated substantial sums to support the Tea Party. I wanted my money to do better. So this past weekend, I left my long-time wireless provider AT&T and switched to CREDO Mobile.
CREDO openly supports progressive nonprofits (you can view the list of this year’s recipients, selected with the help of CREDO members, on their website).They’re committed to protecting the environment and will even buy out your existing mobile contract. Easy decision, right? Except there’s just one problem - CREDO doesn’t offer iPhones.

Today's recipe was submitted by FearLess editor Robin Cangie and invented by her husband.
This simple, satisfying recipe is one of my favorites and is very easy to make. Coconut milk and vodka make a delicious tomato cream sauce - you'd never know it's vegan. Pair the main dish with a green salad and your favorite red wine for a delicious and well-rounded winter meal.
This is a pretty interesting art project by Daniel Ting Chong and Jordan Metcalf. Not only is the imagery provocative, but we love the name. :)
The objects seek to playfully examine the place of fear and crime in South Africa context, framing our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we all seem to suffer from. By scaling the objects and turning them into artworks, the artists aim to re-contextualise the place these items hold in our everyday lives.
The Boulder County Commission wants to make this decision based on science. And that is commendable. In fact, it is absolutely how they should make this decision. The science that has made it possible to take genes from one species and insert them into another is probably the most incredible breakthrough of this century. But the science of creation and the science of application are two different things. As splitting the atom so perfectly displayed.
