7 unlikely things global warming could take away
Brooklyn photographer Lori Nix isn’t your traditional photographer. She spends weeks, even months, hand-fashioning elaborate tabletop dioramas specifically to capture in just the right light with her camera. Without the aid of digital manipulations, Nix goes one step further and uses an old-fashioned 8 X 10 large format camera to shoot her pieces. All of her effort pays off big, as the results are beautiful, as well as mysterious and sometimes, haunting.

Think before you take trash
About 60 percent of the trash found on the streets in the San Francisco Bay area is fast-food and convenience store items. That’s unnecessary.
Some simple steps:
• Don’t take more napkins, straws, utensils, etc. than you need. If you’re buying food for three people, take only three napkins.
• Tell the person who is packaging your food what you do and don’t need for napkins, utensils, straws and condiments.
• If you’re taking your convenience food home to be eaten, you can use your own utensils, napkins and even condiments.
• Say no to the bag. Take a look at the trash can right outside a convenience store. It’s full of bags from the store. People buy an item. It gets put in a bag. They leave the store. Take the item out and put the bag directly in the trash. It’s mind-boggling. Don’t take the bag in the first place.
• Take reusable coffee mugs to your coffee house or convenience store every time you get coffee to go.
