Silver Lake apartment garden brings COVID-19 relief

Posted on

When Jamie Renee Williams wanted to learn more about soil and permaculture, she volunteered at several urban farms throughout Los Angeles: Cottonwood Urban Farm in Panorama City, Huarache Farms in Sierra Madre and Farm L.A., located in Elysian Valley. When she wanted to implement what she was learning in the community, she began working with a community-led compost pick-up service to expand its reach. And when the coronavirus outbreak forced her to shelter in place, she transformed a tiny stretch of dirt next to her apartment into an edible garden.

“I thought for many years that it would be amazing to work on restoring it in some way,” Williams, 37, said of the garden in Silver Lake that she planted in March. “I had been reading books on permaculture such as “The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming,” and when I started going to a bunch of different farms

The proliferation of upscale healthy food restaurants shows that a good portion of the dining public won’t hold its nose at plant-based dishes and is even willing to pay top dollar for them.

True Food Kitchen, the latest to join the central Ohio sphere of natural-foods’ restaurants, offers a balance of “healthy and delicious,” said Christine Barone, CEO of the Phoenix-based restaurant chain.

“It has to start with delicious because food is one of life’s greatest pleasures,” Barone said. “It has to be a sense of discovery and a real experience.”

True Food Kitchen, 4052 Worth Ave. in Easton Town Center, has a sleek, modern look, with a verdant color scheme, spacious dining room, light wood paneling stacked up to the towering ceiling, and mix of low- and high-top tables. A retractable wall opens to the year-round patio.

Columbus is the 35th

IKEA Brings Kitchen Design to Virtual Reality

Posted on

IKEA has turned remodeling your kitchen into an HTC Vive VR game.

The Swedish furniture giant has launched a virtual reality app called the IKEA VR experience, just in time as the first HTC Vive headsets begin shipping today.

The pilot app which is available on Steam VR and built using Unreal Engine 4 from Epic Games, lets Vive headset owners design their own virtual Ikea kitchen that is true to size. Once inside the app, you can explore one of three differently-styled kitchen room settings and change the color of cabinets and drawers with a click.

Another feature is the ability to view the VR kitchen from different perspectives by either shrinking or stretching yourself to move around the kitchen at the size of a 3.3 foot-tall child or a 6.4 foot-tall adult. This could be a very useful feature, allowing you to walk

HBO just dropped the first official trailer for Betty. Based on her groundbreaking 2018 film Skate Kitchen, Crystal Moselle enlists several of the film’s stars to carry on the story.

Jaden Smith starred in the film along with the real-life, all-girl skating crew that inspired the story.

Dede Lovelace, Rachelle Vinberg, Moonbear, Nina Moran, and Ajani Russell all return for the teen drama they inspired, playing fictionalized versions of themselves. The show follows this “diverse group of young women navigating their lives through the predominantly male-oriented world of skateboarding, set against the backdrop of New York City.”

Say Om: Edition Brings Meditation into the Guestroom With Inscape

Posted on

INTERNATIONAL REPORT—Health and wellness offerings are surely becoming mainstay features in hotels, and while many guests will think of spas and fitness, Edition Hotels is shedding light on a lesser adopted form of wellness: meditation.

Edition has partnered with Inscape, a meditation app created by Intermix founder/former CEO Khajak Keledjian, that aims to remove any doubts or misconceptions about meditation.

“The biggest misconception about meditation is that people think they’re doing it wrong,” said Ben Pundole, VP of brand experience for Edition. “There is no wrong. It’s simply a time to sit and reflect, to be still and focus on breathing and being. It’s a daily reset, a way of allowing happiness in and melting the stress away.”

Edition hotels across the globe offer four unique, in-room and on-demand meditation experiences, each to suit different types of people and lifestyles.

“Uplifting to help you start the day to calming and
