“We can all avoid an excess of omega-6 fats by minimizing our intake of highly processed and fast, fried foods – and getting our fats from nuts, seeds, olives, and avocado; olive and canola oil.”

Dr. David Katz from Yale School of Medicine’s Griffin Prevention Center wrote a compelling piece that I just got a chance to catch up with that is worth reading. It highlights the importance of moderation in our food intake. It also reminds us of the importance of keeping things in perspective and not being an absolutist –even when it comes to issues like avoiding genetically engineered products. Full article below:

Yedioth Ahronoth – May 27, 2016

I met four concerned Israelis this week in a Tel Aviv café: Maj. Gen. (res.) Amnon Reshef was commander of the armored divisions and commander of the 14th Brigade in the Yom Kippur War; Maj. Gen. (res.) Danny Rothschild was director of the IDF Intelligence Research Department and coordinator of government activities in the territories; Aryeh Felman was the deputy director of the GSS; and Roland Giron was a senior Mossad official (Giron let his friends speak on his behalf).  The four of them are members of an NGO called Commanders for Israel’s Security, which is due to issue a new political-security plan to the public on Monday.  The plan is entitled “Security First.”

They are not alone.  While we are preoccupied with the Netanyahu family’s airline tickets, many parties, both around the world and in Israel, are searching for a plan to break the stalemate.  “Winter is coming,” the protagonists of the series Game of Thrones warn repeatedly.  The diplomatic winter is expected to begin in November, on the day after the US presidential elections, with a last initiative of the Obama administration; the next stage will come with a Security Council resolution, perhaps also a regional initiative.  The world will discover with astonishment that it is the 50th anniversary of the occupation.  People are concerned, both in Jerusalem and in Ramallah.

Humanity’s race against the clock

Published under Introspection May 23, 2016

Allan Murray of Fortune Magazine quoted Jeremy Grantham as saying that environmentalists “all underestimate, either by a little or a lot, how fast technology is moving” to solve key energy issues, while the tech crowd “underestimates the speed at which weather, population, climate are moving against us.”  A snipet of the interview with Grantham is quite sobering and worrying.
