By Heather Taylor Value menus, drive-thrus, and the ability to say “supersize it” on everything from French fries to sodas.

But which mascots are beloved by the mad men and women, anyway?

What Will The New Most Interesting Man In The World Do Next?
Huffington Post - 4 months
Heather Taylor He once cheated death… And death was perfectly okay with it. The newest Most Interesting Man in the World has arrived with a bang. Formerly portrayed by actor Jonathan Goldsmith (last seen jet setting off to the moon), the latest incarnation of the Dos Equis spokesperson is played by French actor Augustin Legrand. In the new Havas Worldwide New York commercial, the legend traverses the sand and Serengeti. Some of his impressive feats in the 47-second “Airboat” spot include whittling a football out of a coconut (and kicking it stadium style past a pair of giraffes), slicing a knife in half using another knife, and engaging in an outrageous sand dune race. He’s younger and scruffier. His tagline has been modified (“Stay thirsty, mis amigos”) and he’s joined by an adventurous female companion, but the enigmatic gent is still full of edgy mystique. And it taps into the character’s evolution for millennials well. As Toygar Bazarkaya, Chief Creative ...

Girl Can't Get Personalized Nutella Jar Because Her Name Is Isis
Huffington Post - about 1 year
As if being a little girl named “Isis” in this day and age isn't hard enough, now even Nutella has a problem with her name. The Australian 5-year-old’s aunt tried to buy five personalized jars of the chocolate-hazelnut spread for her nephew Odhinn and her niece Isis at a department store in New South Wales, the Sydney Morning Herald reports. The company’s “Make Me Yours” campaign, which allows people to put their names on the jars, launched in Australia in September. The department store’s computers flagged “Isis” as a problematic name for the label, and the store manager wouldn’t budge, telling the woman to take it up with Ferrero, Nutella’s parent company. Isis’ mother, Heather Taylor, told the Sydney Morning Herald that the next day, Ferrero Chief Executive Craig Barker contacted to her to confirm that they wouldn't put Isis’ name on the jar. Nutella rejects personalised jar for five-year-old girl named Isis. https://t.co/uqilr8XG4f pic.twitter.com/Pag8y8ARuM — smh.c ...

Comment on Letter: Woman outraged over ticket for leaving dogs in parked vehicle by Heather Taylor
San Marcos Mercury - almost 2 years
Well maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned that about abortions. That makes me the “all knowing of ones motives” too. So I apologize for that. My point was, that so many people get outraged over the wrong things. Starving children, human sex trafficking, rape, child abuse and yes, even animal abuse!! These are the things that one should be focusing rants on. Now if this woman did this all the time and didn’t give a rip, then she would fall in the category of animal abuser. Have a good week everyone.

Heather Taylor-Miesle: Can the Environment Save the Republican Party?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The Republican Party is primed for success in 2014. In addition to benefiting from redistricting wizardry, the party has history on its side: off-year elections give opposition parties the clear lead, especially in the second term of a lame duck president. Yet the GOP has failed to turn these advantages into real gains. It may be winning battles, but it is losing the war because it keeps eroding its voter appeal. It has turned off young voters with leaders who routinely belittle the severity of climate change, like when Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) told a town hall meeting that "global warming is a total fraud." It has alienated women with candidates like Colorado's Ken Buck who said people should vote for him "because I do not wear high heels." It has angered Latino voters with lawmakers like Representative Steve King (R-IA) who said that for every Latino valedictorian, there are 100 more hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. And it has even ...

Heather Taylor-Miesle: Fracking Hits Home
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I'm used to writing about the many issues percolating in Washington, DC and across the country. But, this time it's different, because the fracking boom has come to my home state, California. Fracking has been a hot topic in other parts of the country. In the absence of state or federal laws, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the c3 affiliate of the NRDC Action Fund, has been leading community-level work in a number of states and now California. And while the fight for a moratorium in the state continues, immediate protections are urgently needed, as companies are already fracking in California communities and looking to expand across the Monterey oil shale formation, which spans much of the state. I'm proud to live in a state that takes public health and environmental protections seriously and in many cases, leads the country. Now California has the opportunity to lead again. Currently, a legislative proposal that includes statewide fracking protections ...

Heather Taylor-Miesle: I Don't Get the Ceiling Fan Battle
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Most of the country has been suffering through record-breaking heat waves, but Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) doesn't want Americans to save money when we cool down. She is leading a House Republican attack on efficiency standards for ceiling fans that would help reduce our electric bills and cut down on dangerous pollution. It seems like a misguided effort. Every political strategist knows that in order to mobilize people, you need a villain, a victim, and a hero, but I can't find the victim of ceiling fan standards. Representative Blackburn, who is this hurting? Is there a large constituency who wants to pay more for electricity every month? Are there many voters who get riled up over ceiling fans? Am I missing something here? Blackburn claims the ceiling fan standards epitomize the Obama administration's overreach. She warns about "regulatory tentacles" and government officials "coming after our ceiling fans." That may stir partisan passion, but the fact is ...

Heather Taylor-Miesle: The House Record at Recess: Anti-health, Anti-environment
Huffington Post - over 3 years
As Republican members of the House slink out of town for the August recess, one can only say good riddance to a crew that in recent weeks has repeatedly, and across a broad front, voted to block, delay or weaken the protections that we all rely on the protect our health, our air and water, and our families. Taken as a whole, the House GOP record paints a clear picture of party that is anti-health, anti-environment, anti-community rights, even anti-kids. (How else to interpret a GOP-sponsored rider to block the Environmental Protection Agency from enforcing rules that would limit exposure to lead paint?) To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, the only thing worse than a do-nothing Congress is a do-something-bad Congress. The silver lining in the gloomy cloud of bad bills is that the Democratic-led Senate and a veto-wielding president should prevent most of the egregious provisions from becoming law. The centerpiece of this reckless assault on our health and pollution laws is the ...

Heather Taylor-Miesle: Three Sins in New GOP Anti-Climate Ads...Will the NRCC Repent?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
While clean energy advocates were celebrating President Obama's newly released Climate Action Plan this week, national Republicans wasted no time in rushing to the video editing booth to launch new and false advertisements aimed at halting progress. Just two days after the President's plan was released, the National Republican Congressional Committee had already launched an ad designed to scare residents in Rep. Collin Peterson's Minnesota congressional district (MN-07). The same ads were replicated for at least six other districts (AZ-08, IA-02, MN-08, NH-01, TX-23, WV-03) . The ad commits three major sins: 1. Fails to Acknowledge Climate Change. The first sin is a sin of omission. The NRCC ad completely fails to acknowledge the threat of climate change or to realize that Americans are feeling the pain of climate change already. Americans remember that 2012 was the second most extreme year on record and was the warmest year on record. Around Rep. Peterson's home state ...

Heather Taylor-Miesle: Snyder On the Right Side of Renewables in Michigan
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Many times I find myself writing my blog posts about politicians who stand with dirty polluters rather than the health and well being of their constituents. Today is an exception. In case you missed it on the NRDC Action Fund Facebook page or Twitter feed, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder recently told the Associate Press that he supports increasing his state's investment in renewable energy sources. I'm going to go ahead and just state the obvious. This is a big deal! As we fight to keep existing renewable energy portfolios in place at statehouses all across the country, Governor Snyder is choosing the road less traveled. Rather than attacking a plan already in place, he's decided to enhance it. In Michigan, energy suppliers must produce at least 10 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2015. With major energy providers on target to meet the deadline, Governor Snyder is right to advance the discussion about how Michigan can and should do more. Jobs ...
