    The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.

    This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.

    Put these everywhere

  3. Aaron Axelrod - Freedom of the Press (2012) - Pastel on canvas

    "A series exploring the current state of the press and more in depth, TV media. Almost all major media outlets are owned and operated by large corporate conglomerates which have their own set of personal and political agendas, which by definition, obscure and under represent the facts, all of which deceives and misleads the public. Using techniques to create the aesthetics of bad TV signals, the paintings which Axelrod has created, become metaphors for the unclear and altered information in the contemporary media. Freedom of the Press not only depicts specific individuals and current events, but also targets major television programs and the pundits that report and offer their own views about them as well.

    The paintings reflect not just the concepts around the subject matter, but by the mediums/materials in which they’re produced. For instance the traditional use of pastels, often thought to be a medium used to create soft, gentle and unassuming paintings are in this series, being used to make large, pieces of subversive and controversial subject matter. The light box paintings, offer the idea of painting with light, which gives the same aesthetic as a television in a room, discharging colorful light fractures which get reflected of the walls and floor of the room.”

    “Our newspapers, for the most part, present only the caricatures of disaffected minds. Indeed, the abuses of the freedom of the press here have been carried to a length never before known or borne by any civilized nation.” –Thomas Jefferson

    "A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

    This man was a pure genius.

    The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.
