The Compound Restaurant – Santa Fe, New Mexico

by Leslie Long

the-compound-2

On my first day at the beautiful La Posada de Santa Fe, I didn’t stray far from the hotel grounds. A blood orange margarita and lobster studded guacamole welcomed me to the hotel’s gorgeous patio where we decompressed from early flights under the bluer-than-blue sky.

The next day, we were craving art so headed toward the galleries on Canyon Road. Having asked for a lunch recommendation, the same name kept coming up: The Compound. I think I have pretty good restaurant radar and I loved this place before even stepping foot inside.

The Woman in the Viral NYC Catcalling Video Is Suing Its Creators

The video may have helped raise awareness of the catcalling issues women face all over the world, but according to TMZ the star of it, Shoshana Roberts, is suing anti-street harassment group Hollaback! for $500,000 due to the rape threats, death threats, and online abuse she’s received since it was released.

Roberts was found through a Craigslist advert and was allegedly only paid $200 for her work, despite the fact that the nonprofit received donations and ad revenue.

“It’s frustrating when the nonprofit gets donations, and the director gets ad revenue, and I get people wanting to slit my throat,” she said, adding that the company violated her civil rights by creating and releasing videos containing “creative content, performance, image, likeness and persona for the purposes of advertising or trade without her prior written consent.” Google has also been brought into the despite for using the clip without her permission and/or parodying the video.

An Origami Pot That Expands As The Plant Grows

origami_pot_00

For the average urban gardener, repotting a plant multiple times as it grows from seed can be a bit of a time-consuming and messy nightmare, which is why London-based design studio Studio Ayaskan has created an origami pot that can self-expand as the plant grows, only needing to be topped up with soil.

“The life cycle of a plant is a transformation, from an early seed to its full grown size; the blooming of a flower, the unfolding of a leaf, the branching of the roots,” say Studio Ayaskan. “This process is what Growth aims to capture within a plant pot.”

For now, the the Growth pot is just a concept, but Studio Ayaskan are working on putting it into production soon.

Coca-Cola Removes Its Logo in the Middle East for Ramadan

coca-cola-middle-east-no-label-ramadan-2015-1

The world as we know it has gone pretty far this year to fight for equality and tolerance. Coca-Cola is riding the zeitgeist in a new campaign that sees the soda giant removing its labels in the Middle East to send the message that labeling cans is fine, but labeling people is not.

coca-cola-middle-east-no-label-ramadan-2015-2

The limited-edition label-free cans carry the iconic Coke stripe and the words, “Labels are for cans, not for people.” What they don’t carry is the brand logo and name. The label removal coincides with the Muslim month of fasting, Ramadan, that ends on the evening of July 17.

“In the Middle East, a region with over 200 nationalities and a larger number of labels dividing people, these Coca-Cola cans send a powerful and timeless message that a world without labels is a world without differences,” says the Dubai-based agency FP7/DXB, according to Campaign India. “And that we are all basically just the same—human.”
