not on fighting the old,

This article by Marc Bitman provides interesting food for thought that breaks through the facile assumption that all industrial food production is necessarily evil.

Israeli scientist Dr. Daniel Hillel was awarded the World Food Prize at the U.S. State Department yesterday for pioneering innovative ways of watering crops in arid desert areas. The presentation of the award commended Dr. Hillel’s scientific achievement as well as his dedication to working with people across borders to help improve food security for all. As he accepted the award, Dr. Hillel asserted that his work is far from complete and urged the global community to unite in efforts towards sustainable food production.

Scientists have created the lightest material on earth, according to a recent article in the LA Times.  While this sort of innovation warrants its own celebration, it will be even more exciting to see is what scientists proceed to do with this material!

Howard Schultz’s campaign to divest from all political campaigns as a sign of disgust for Washington’s political feuds, has caught President Obama’s attention.  President Obama recently called the Starbucks CEO to discuss the campaign, and while Schultz emphasized that his campaign is not directed against the President, it is clear that his rally has made an impression on our nation’s leaders.

This article takes a look at that story, as well as others that demonstrate Schultz’s renowned leadership and personality traits.
