Introducing Operation Green

by Sonya M. Shull

Operation Green is the Environment Club for RACC. The members dedicate themselves to educate the college community as well as the city of Reading on ways to change their lifestyle. The changes allow an individual to reduce their carbon footprint, which is the impact one person has on the environment.

Operation Green has already made a positive impact by hosting rain barrel workshops. Their success in selling the barrels to home owners in the greater Reading area brought a lot of attention from organizations such as the PA Department of Environmental Protection and the Schuylkill Action Network. The Schuylkill Action Network presented the Schuylkill Scholastic Drinking Water Award to Reading Area Community College and the members of Operation Green on May 7, 2015. The students of Operation Green impressed many people with this outstanding accomplishment.

Yogic Way – A Conscious Exhalation to Let Go

By David Meyer

Yoga offers ways to establish a life of balance and transformation.

Yoga is becoming more and more popular in the West and continues to grow and evolve.  If the title of this column caught your eye, this physio-spiritual practice has likely caught your attention in some capacity.

My name is David Meyer, and I recently finished a 250-hour yoga-teacher training in Classical yoga at The Yoga Life Institute in Devon.  Though the pixels of a webpage hardly seem like the ideal ashram (the place in which Hindu cultural practices are studied and mastered), I hope to use a bi-weekly column to provide college students (who are spread thin among life, work demands, and educational requirements) with some practices that might help them gain balance and enhance their school and life experience.
