Hi Inderific. We agree that the graphic is shocking and almost unbelievable. Zillow currently has 480 homes in Oakland listed as foreclosure sale or auction as of today (April 20, 2015). You can Google that info from any city by pulling up 'Zillow + Foreclosures + Name/City'

What the 'blue dots' can't show you is the full number homes that are bank owned by not on the market right now. Banks have been forced to release just a portion of foreclosure homes at a time in order to control the market some (the pricing, actually)

Here's the link to the Oakland sales:

Inspired By Our Earth

Happy Earth Day you guys! As many of you know, I ran an eco-friendly clothing label called Mountains of the Moon for 15 years. I was very lucky to get to be a part of some really amazing events with my brand, including showing my collections at Chicago and Portland Fashion Weeks, exhibiting at expos all over the country, producing eco-fashion shows at music festivals, and even showing a dress I made out of discarded candy wrappers at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art. But one of my favorite events was one that happened every year – our Annual Earth Day project.  Every April 22nd for six years, we offered 30% off our entire line, and also teamed up with American Forests to plant trees (30% of every order was given to their tree planting project, where every dollar planted one tree). I loved getting to do this, and I’ll admit that I’m feeling a little bummed that it’s not happening this year. I will be making my own personal donation to American Forests today though, and I also plan on on hitting up a local park after I’m done with work to help clean up trash. I really do make an effort everyday to be environmentally conscious in my choices and actions, but it’s also nice to have a day each year specifically devoted to reminding us all how important it is to respect the earth. 

In celebration of this special day, I’m sharing some stunning images of nature that I’ve come across on Pinterest recently, as seen above. (And a few of them are of my two favorite places I’ve ever been: the California Coastal Redwoods, where I lived for a couple of years after college, and the Great Barrier Reef, which I had the intense pleasure of snorkeling in 2010.) How lucky are we to live on a planet that is so absolutely stunning?

If you’d like to make a donation today in honor of Earth Day but aren’t sure where to start, here are some of my favorite environmental organizations: American Forests, Rock the Earth, Water DefenseAmerican Rivers, Wildlife AllianceSierra ClubChicago Wilderness, EDF.

Do you do anything special to celebrate Earth Day?

Jerky Problems AGAIN: an infographic

Are you kidding me? After years of pressure, people finally get pet stores to agree to stop carrying treats from China only to have a new crop of cases of illness emerge in pets who ate jerky with a “Made in the USA” label.

Is it sourcing? Is it weird contamination from aliens? Who cares! Just don’t buy it. It’s not worth the risk. Feed your pet an apple, or some of their regular food, or follow the link to where I show you how to make it yourself.

Or watch the video:

Video of Iranian Dog Killings Sparks Demonstrations Throughout the Country

Iranian animal-rights activists have taken to the streets in several cities throughout the country to protest a grotesque video showing men killing stray dogs.

The video is undated, but went viral within the last week. It allegedly shows dogs dying after being injected with acid by men in the city of Shiraz, about 500 miles south of Tehran. According to the Fars News Agency, the activist who took the video says that the men were paid $ 4 for each dog killed.

The biggest protest so far took place outside the offices of Vice President Masoumeh Ebtekar in Tehran. On Sunday, at least 500 people gathered outside, demanding an investigation of the video. Ebtekar said in a letter to the Interior Ministry that there needs to be "an immediate end to unconventional population control methods for stray dogs." She also addressed the crowd directly, telling them that "Hurting animals is unacceptable under any circumstances," but that the responsibility for pursuing an investigation falls on the local governments.

Demonstrations also took place in the cities of Shiraz, Qazvin, and Karaj.

Dog ownership is highly controversial in Iran and many other Muslim societies because certain schools of Islam consider dogs to be unclean. Owning them as pets, rather than as work animals, is especially frowned upon.

These feelings about dogs surfaced in Iran late last year, when 32 conservative members of the Iranian parliament signed a draft of a law that would have made walking a dog in public or owning one as a pet punishable by 74 lashes of the whip. In Malaysia, animal activist Syed Azmi Alhabshi got death threats when he organized a public event called "I Want to Touch a Dog," where Muslims could come to touch and pet dogs, many of them for the first time.

Although the taboo runs deep, there is also pushback against it from many Muslims, as the protests against the video show. The response to it has been broad-based; not only has the Vice President had to make an immediate response, but the local government of Shiraz was flooded with phone calls after the video hit the web, and Ali Karimi, a beloved former football star, posted a picture of himself with his two dogs on his Instagram account. Next to the picture, he wrote, "Dogs are the kindest domestic animals. I hope those who, under any excuse, did this to these animals get what they deserve." It's safe to say that we all agree with that sentiment.
