“The spaces in The Cordovan were designed as two-story so you could theoretically have your business on the first floor,” Goodman explains. “The lofts in the second building [meanwhile] are designed with concrete floors and oversized doors to cater to artists.”
Both Goodman and Lynch feel the live–work concept has worked well in Haverhill and would be extremely successful in large urban centers, as well.

Let There Be Peace - Donna Summer



Let There Be Peace

Someone let communication out the door
Someone decided it's worth fighting for
Why haven't we learned by what we've done before?
Don't you know history's keeping score?
For every boy and every girl
Let there be love
All over the world
For everyone
Under the sun...
Let there be peace on earth
Let every voice be heard
Let there be peace on earth
Brother to brother
'Til it's felt around the world
There's only one world in which we all must live
Heaven show us how to forgive
And on that marble wall which holds a million names
Generations of dreams gone down in flames
Isn't, isn't it a shame?
For every boy and every girl
Under the sun...
Let there be peace on earth
(Why don't you try just a little harder?)
Let every voice be heard
(My brother)
Let there be peace on earth
(Oh, if we could just get it together)
'Til it's felt around the world
We're running out of time
As our leaders roll the dice
The human spirit cries
It's a precious, precious sacrifice
Let there be peace on earth
Let every voice be heard
Let there be peace on earth
'Til it's felt around the world

The head of Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF), Joanne Liu -- fresh from a visit to western Africa -- said in Geneva on Friday that more experts were needed in the hard-hit region.
"It is deteriorating faster, and moving faster, than we can respond to," Liu told reporters. "Like in a war time, we have a total collapse of infrastructure," she added.
Lui said the world community needed to get the "upper hand" over the next six months. While the viral spread had been slowed in Guinea, concerns focused especially on Liberia.
"If we don't stabilize Liberia, we will never stabilize the region," Lui said.
She was critical of the WHO for delaying its public health emergency warning until August 8.
"We need people with a hands-on operational mindset," to combat the outbreak, Liu told the Geneva news briefing.

'Good Dad' Dies After Deputy Tases Him, Everyone Who Knew Him Says They Had The Wrong Guy: LAist

'Good Dad' Dies After Deputy Tases Him, Everyone Who Knew Him Says They Had The Wrong Guy: LAist



Deputies stopped Parker, who was cycling nearby on Luna Road, around 5 p.m. to question him. The Sheriff's Dept. said in a press release that the deputy there believed that Parker was possibly "under the influence of an unknown substance," and that he became "uncooperative and combative."
NBC Los Angeles reported that Parker allegedly fought a female deputy, leaving bruises on her arms, and she tased Parker multiple times. She and another deputy say they struggled with Parker before they handcuffed him and put him the backseat of the patrol car. They noticed that he was sweating and having trouble breathing, so they called a medical aid to treat him, and then they had an ambulance take him to a hospital, where he died.
"That whole story is totally wrong; that’s just not Dante,” Richard Loredo, a former coworker of Parker's, told Daily Press. “Dante’s not a burglar ... You can see how well his kids were raised; he was a good dad. For the police department to portray him like that is ... unfair."
Parker's father, Darrell Parker, told NBC Los Angeles: "He was a big, gentle guy. So I don't understand it. I'm at a loss for words. I miss him already."
Parker is survived by his wife and five children, including four girls from the ages of 8 to 19, and a 5-year-old boy.
The Sheriff's Dept. is investigating Parker's death and have arranged for an autopsy to determine the cause of his death.

10 Reasons to Exercise & A 30-Day Challenge. | Rebelle Society

10 Reasons to Exercise & A 30-Day Challenge. | Rebelle Society

1. Keeps you youthful. Cardio exercise such as yoga, jogging, light aerobics, brisk walking or bicycling increase the amount of oxygen consumed during exercise. Studies now show that people who exercise regularly tend to stay healthier as they age — according to Web MD, researchers have found that people who exercise have cells that look much younger under a microscope than people who do not regularly exercise. And we all know, true beauty emanates from the inside out — what’s inside will eventually make its way through.
2. Increases immunity. Regular, mindful workouts (not over-doing it) rev-up the immune system. Research shares that the average adult has two to three upper respiratory infections each year. However, studies found that people with a regular exercise routine report fewer colds and infections. And a strong immunity keeps us saying yes to life and all its invitations.
3. Prevents heart disease. An inactive lifestyle is one of the top risk factors for heart disease. Physical activity helps to keep you at a healthy weight and can reduce your chances of developing  conditions that may put a strain on your heart, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. And a healthy heart could just translate into healthier relationships.
4. Eases-up asthma. According to a study in the UK, eight out of ten people with asthma aren’t doing enough exercise. Mindful and appropriate exercise for asthmatics can actually improve your lung capacity, which can help to manage asthma.
5. Controls blood sugar and lower diabetes. Moderate exercise makes your heart beat faster. When this happens, your muscles use more glucose, the sugar in your blood stream. Over time, this can lower blood sugar level and  help the insulin in your body work better.
6. Helps to prevent cancer. New studies show that there is strong evidence that exercise is associated with reduced risk of cancers of the colon and breast, and reduces the risk of endometrial/uterus, lung, and prostate cancers.
7. Alleviates stress. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever and can boost your feel-good endorphins — and distract you from daily, arbitrary worries.
8. Relieves menopausal symptoms. Moderate and frequent exercise has proven to improve the quality of sleep and elevate mood. It may also relieve night sweats, by reducing stress and balancing out hormones.
9. Protects men’s health. According to a study shared on Web MD, men who found time for five or more hours of exercise a week (just under an hour a day), whether job-related or for fun, were 30% to 50% less likely to develop an enlarged prostrate than those who exercised fewer than two hours a week.
10. Prolongs life. Researchers have found that moderate exercise, such as walking or bicycling, can substantially reduce your risk of early death.
And, just think — these are only 10 of the benefits of moving your body! Find what works best for you and the best part? You don’t have to over do it. Thirty minutes of sincere, moderate exercise every day will offer you life-affirming benefits.

Did You Get The Call? | Rebelle Society

Did You Get The Call? | Rebelle Society

DelRita Butler
Did you get the call?
I did.
Did you hear your name
in the middle of the night?
That voice egging you on,
nudging you to awaken.
The silent alarm vibrating
through your heart,
bursting your confusion,
this nameless knowing.
This tumult
of soul seeking truths
Are there words
for this disposition?
Come out,
add to the dialog
this hiding no longer suits you.
You’re on the brink
of transformation
and you need to jump in
or defy gravity,
 and float
into the collective
of indie souls.
Or, into the cast
of nameless and
unidentified
seekers of change,
your new family.
So go out.
Be the change.
By doing,
sharing,
creating.
Walk the walk
and talk the talk
in your gifted way,
your language.
Paint the story,
write the story,
sing, dance,
play the story.
Pass it on,
 teach it, grow it,
word by word,
 by mouth.
Be the person
you want to be.
Be the person
you need to be.
Take your hat off.
Sit down
and journal this pause.
Put on sneakers,
grab a towel,
and run this moment.
Pick up your mat,
find space,
and meditate this moment.
But however you do
what you do,
carry someone with you,
forward.
Talk to them,
touch them,
share fears,
share joys,
speak ideas.
Collectively we cannot
effect change by only watching.
We are the town criers.
