Thanks for a Great November

Each month, I review the highlights from On the Brink.  I am really grateful for all the visitors and I hope that if you like the blog that you bookmark it and share it with your friends.  Also, please add it to your links if you have a website or blog.

I continue to look for writers for On the Brink.  If you want to do a one-time post or want to be a regular contributor (minimum of 1 post a month), let me know.  This blog focuses on the environment, sustainability, and higher education and if you want to write on any of those topics, drop me an email at

One of the most popular (and in my opinion important) posts in November was my interview with Rabbi Troster that was part of my 3-part series on sustainability and faith.  I found his answers to my questions fascinating and it was a nice way to round out the series.  If you have any suggestions for other interview series, let me know.  I'm thinking about having a series on art and sustainability.

I wrote quite a bit about Hofstra's upcoming GMO debate and GMO debate resources.  I also noted that Hofstra will be hosting a major soccer conference this spring and a major presidential conference in over a year.

I focused on three national parks in my series highlighting photos from the U.S. national parks:  Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and Haleakala National Park.  These national park posts have proven to be very popular.

I also wrote quite a bit about sinkholes.  I attended a workshop on them at the National Research Council, my sinkhole book got a nice write-up in Hofstra magazine, and my sinkhole book came out!

November had its share of odd stories.  I wrote about a man obsessed with street sweeping, about Joan Jett's jettison from a float due to her veganism, World Toilet Day, and about my bag problems at Sports Authority.

Lisa Marie Pierre had a great post about rethinking the suburban front yard with some great photos from a suburb in Arizona.

Of course, all of you really enjoyed the harp twins, so I am providing them here playing some Blue Oyster Cult for your enjoyment.
