A New Year’s Resolution: Get Over Your Irrational Fears

Anyone who tells you that he has no fears is either lying or very foolish. Fears are ubiquitous, and some of us just learn to live in harmony with them a little better than others.   At this very moment I’m in a bus headed for Honduras, the most dangerous country in the Western Hemisphere. In the bus with me are my most precious possessions: my husband, my children, and my parents. The last time we were in Honduras, we had one of our most frightening travel moments.

The difference between types of yoga

Yoga is certainly a flexible practice. Yogis young and old, new to the practice or advanced in their ability to practice asanas (physical posture), can find classes, teachers, and experiences that fit their goals, even if those goals are ever-changing. Since it was first practiced, yoga has grown like a tree with many branches, and as a result, there are many different types of yoga that you can try all over the world. There are some branches that challenge you physically, and others that don...

The 1929 law that turned undocumented entry into a crime

Too often, discussions of immigration policy focus on recent events while ignoring the past policies that led the country to where it is today. That’s especially true when undocumented immigrants are characterized as criminals—often merely on the basis of their legal immigration status. This rhetoric isn’t new—it has long been used to justify immigration crackdowns. But the framing of unauthorized migration as illegal does have an origin point: a little-known law in 1929. The law—the Undesirable...

Most beautiful breweries in Europe

Back before the global craft beer craze, opening a brewery was quite a rare and monumental event, often necessitating an entire warehouse, a wing inside a monastery, or a full city block. Those who started the breweries of Bavaria, Belgium, and elsewhere in Europe may not have foreseen their brewhouses becoming architectural staples — but, fortunately, society tends to love historical buildings about as much as it loves beer. By visiting these gorgeous European breweries, you can get your fix...

What to do in Caribbean cruise ports

For those who love it , cruising is the best way to sample a bunch of countries in one vacation, learning a little about a lot of places before returning home. Of course, once you step off the ship in a lot of ports, you’re met by hordes of dudes with laminated plastic signs offering to take you to the “best spots” that “only the locals know about” — where you’re immediately joined by the 3,000 passengers from the ship docked up next to you. Figuring out what to do in a cruise port is tough, e...

Traffic in both directions was suspended at the San Ysidro port of entry between San Diego and Tijuana, the busiest land border in the Western Hemisphere, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency said on Twitter.

The Dignity of Work

I traveled to Haiti in the summer of 2011 with my family to begin directing a non-profit in the growing town of Pignon. During a bumpy truck ride from the Port-Au-Prince airport to the northern mountains, our Haitian director Peter shared with me his vision to provide jobs for women who were part of his church. He had a burden for these families that consistently came to him for money and food. Peter wanted a longer-term solution than simply giving handouts to his congregants. This is the typica...

Rethinking American History on Indigenous Peoples’ Day

In most parts of the United States, the holiday listed on the calendar today is Columbus Day, which was designed to celebrate Italian-American heritage in America. However, there is a growing movement to replace the holiday commemorating the genocidal Cristòffa Cómbo with one that honors the original human inhabitants of the Americas, Indigenous Peoples’ Day. In the forefront of the minds of many Native people throughout the Western Hemisphere, however, is the fact the colonial takeovers of the...

Best cheap Airbnbs in the Caribbean

Nobody’s ever confused the Caribbean with a “budget” destination. Sure, you might find a sweet deal at an all-inclusive here and there, but even with cheap flights, staying in the islands can be prohibitively expensive.

If you’re into a more rustic experience, you can find clean, comfortable Airbnbs all over the islands for well ...

A blind spot in Gov. Jerry Brown’s green worldview? Critics say yes—it’s oil

By Julie Cart, CALmatters The venue was a high-level international climate conference sponsored by the United Nations, but the demonstrators were undeterred. Anti-oil protesters tried to shout down California Gov. Jerry Brown as he spoke at last November’s climate-change conference in Bonn, Germany, one of many interruptions in his appearances there. The occasionally feisty governor didn’t miss the opportunity to debate with the “Keep It In The Ground” campaign troops pushing for no new oil or g...
