a real problem, but only about 1% of it comes from the United States.  Of that 1%, a tiny amount comes from plastic straws.  But what about that 500 million number?  Where do they all get that

progressive talk show host Ethan Bearman.  “Sometimes we do need a little gentle guiding hand from government.”  <i>Governments gentle guiding hand</i> will either ban straws or order us to replace this cheap plastic straw with ones like these made of paper or bamboo.  “Plastic doesn’t actually biodegrade.  So unlike a lot of other things, paper, for example, actually breaks down into other components.”  </p><p>That’s not a good thing.  That means paper straws break down, even while you’re using them.  They get soggy, they leak.  “That’s the beauty of plastic, it’s enduring,” says Logomasini, “Paper straws are going to break down while you’re drinking with it.”  Paper and bamboo straws aren’t environmentally pristine either.  Paper products take more energy and more effort to produce.  You’re going to have a net negative environmental impact.  The paper doesn’t degrade in a landfill either.  Everything is essentially mummified.  <b>You’re replacing a superior product with an inferior one and you’re asking people to pay more for it.</b> It doesn’t make a lot of sense,” she says. </p><p>It doesn’t, and the higher price is the final result.  Paper straws are eight times more expensive to make than plastic straws.  Won’t this hurt businesses?  “I don’t think so.  Maybe people won’t use straws,” claims New York City Councilman Barry Grodenchik.   “If it’s a $1.79 to get the fountain drink at Joe’s corner deli that we’re talking about, and now it’s a $1.83, I don’t see that as being a huge difference in the price,” says Bearman.  </p><p>“This is what

ThatsBaller – Offset Drops Half A Million Dollars On Cardi B’s Raindrop Engagement Ring - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Friday, CardiB topped off her super successful year with an 8-carat raindrop engagement ring from her boyfriend, Offset. The rapper got on one knee at the Powerhouse concert in Philly, just a few days after their brief breakup and popped the question. Of course, Cardi said yes, and now, the Bronx rapper is rocking half a million dollars on her finger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, Offset summoned NYC’s Pristine Jewelers to craft the $550k engagement ring, which took about a month to create.

Man I wrote with a ferocious fire today. Pushed the limits of the characters in my new book, the5amclub. Started writing 2.5 years ago but really wasn't in the pocket I'm now in. Always need to tell you like it is. Solitude provokes wonderful insights. And fuels big-league creativity. The billionaire character is coming to life. He's awkward, brilliant and compassionate. Had an issue getting into Microsoft Word this morning. It locked me out. Yikes! Anyway-figured it out but lost some pristine hours in a frustrating distraction. Boo hoo. Life. 😂✌🏽Ended up with 3.7 flow state hours. I'll taken them. Butterflies are all over the place. Gentle breezes. I'll go for a long bike ride soon to clear the head-heart. Hope you're cool. Bye.: Just because it's never been done doesn't mean it can't be done. Impossible is a liar. @ROBINSHARM Man I wrote with a ferocious fire today.
