  6. Everyone invited to the free showing of Food, Inc at 2 this Wednesday in the LCS Sala. Food, Inc. (Wednesday, September 28) 91 minutes Synopsis This 2010 Oscar-nominated film lifts the veil on the food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the consumer. The Academy Award-nominated film examines corporate farming in the United States, concluding that agribusiness produces food that is unhealthy, in a way that is environmentally harmful and abusive of both animals and employees. The film is narrated by Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser.
  7. Reminder: the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is showing at 2 in the LCS Sala, Wednesday, September 14. All Welcome! "My boss is a chiropractor. She recommended this movie. My life changed. My husband and I juice every day now in addition to our healthy eating plan. My children enjoy the juicing, too. I've noticed a change in my dress size, my eating habits, a decrease in my cravings, and an increase in energy. I highly recommend this movie."

The Lakeside Plant Based Food Group is offering 4 movies in September and October for the curious and those who want more information and inspiration. Up-Coming Movies Free and Everyone is Welcome LCS Sala at 2:00 Fat Sick and Nearly Dead (Wednesday, September 14) 97 minutes Synopsis Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is a 2010 American documentary film which follows the 60-day journey of Australian Joe Cross across the United States as he follows a juice fast to regain his health under the care of Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Nutrition Research Foundation's Director of Research. Cross and Robert Mac, co-creators of the film, both serve on the Nutrition Research Foundation's Advisory Board. Following his fast and the adoption of a plant-based diet, Cross states in a press release that he lost 100 pounds and discontinued all medications.[4][5] During his road-trip Cross meets Phil Staples, a morbidly obese truck driver from Sheldon, Iowa, in a truck stop in Arizona and inspires him to try juice fasting.[6][7] A sequel to the first film, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead 2, was released in 2014. Food, Inc. (Wednesday, September 28) 91 minutes Synopsis This 2010 Oscar-nominated film lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer. Food, Inc. is directed by filmmaker Robert Kenner.[4] The Academy Award-nominated film examines corporate farming in the United States, concluding that agribusiness produces food that is unhealthy, in a way that is environmentally harmful and abusive of both animals and employees. The film is narrated by Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser. Vegecated (Friday October 14) 76 minutes Synopsis Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time. Fresh (Friday, October 28) 70 minutes Synopsis FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur's 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

  10. Thank you for great clarification. And, I had thought double pay if someone works a legal holiday (and this seems to be what my employee thinks too), but someone told me it is triple pay. Any clarification on this?
  11. My information is that there are no paid holidays for Easter time, but our gardener and others have other information. Is anyone sure what is required? Legal Holidays – During the course of a calendar year, the following days are statutory paid days off as per article 74 of Mexican labor law: The 1st of January; (New Year's day) The first Monday of February in commemoration of the 5th of February; (Constitution day – effective Jan. 18, 2006) The third Monday of March in commemoration of the 21st of March; (Benito Juarez's birthday – takes effect in 2007.) The 1st of May; (Labor Day) The 16th of September; (Independence Day) The third Monday of November in commemoration of the 20th of November; (Revolution day - effective Jan. 18, 2006) The 1st of December every six years, when it corresponds to the transition of the Federal Executive Power (when the new President takes office) December 25th – Christmas
  12. I put in a lap pool--11 meters long and just wide enough for one swimmer and about 4 feet deep. I use it everyday. The cost was around $12,500. Highly recommend Home Services for pools. I don't heat it.
  13. Any suggestions for a well stocked lighting store in Guad? I need two floor lamps with good, maybe LED light and toward a more modern design. Thanks.
  14. I do see the hoist option as a more inexpensive way to swim in place with resistence. Thanks for the advice on the current force. Still investigating.
  15. I'm considering installing an endless pool (not necessarily that brand) and wonder if anyone has experience with one of these in this area. I am limited on space but swim regularly for exercise. Most of the time I'll be the only one using the pool. Thanks in advance for any advice.
