Where We Are Going Today: Signature juices: shaking it up in Jeddah

Signature juices are redefining health and people are loving it. In a world of monster shakes and sugary drinks, Signature is bringing freshness with a modern twist. Their juices are fresh, delicious and pleasing to the eye.

Signature also has coffee and fruit shakes although their shakes are not like others. They pour strawberry puree and, over it, a chilled thick strawberry shake to add to the richness of the drink.

Signature started out as a shop with the goal of making everyone a fan, slowly becoming a social media trend much like Overdose Cafe and Criollo Cookies. Its Instagram account has 156,000 followers.

The interior adds to the experience — it is much more fun to drink in the cozy and well-lit area of the shop.

Signature is located at King Abdul Aziz Road, Ash Shati district, Jeddah.

What We Are Reading Today: First Things by Hadley Arkes

This book restores to us an understanding that was once settled in the “moral sciences:” That there are propositions, in morals and law, which are not only true but which cannot be otherwise. 

It was understood in the past that, in morals or in mathematics, our knowledge begins with certain axioms that must hold true of necessity; that the principles drawn from these axioms hold true universally, unaffected by variations in local “cultures;” and that the presence of these axioms makes it possible to have, in the domain of morals, some right answers. Hadley Arkes restates the grounds of that older understanding and unfolds its implications for the most vexing political problems of our day.

The author turns first to the classic debate between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. After establishing the groundwork and properties of moral propositions, he traces their application in such issues as selective conscientious objection, justifications for war, the war in Vietnam, a nation’s obligation to intervene abroad, the notion of supererogatory acts, the claims of “privacy,” and the problem of abortion.
