Shauna Sadowski is the head of sustainability in naturals and organics at General Mills — and where her passion and her role intersect are through regenerative agriculture.

Pursuing regenerative practices for General Mills' agricultural suppliers focuses specifically on soil health, above-ground biodiversity and resilience in the surrounding agricultural communities.

The  dirty tricks  made public as part of Manafort’s recent plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller capture foreign lobbying at its worst. Manafort hid millions in foreign payments from the IRS in offshore accounts, and  reveled in  his bare-knuckled campaign to “plant some stink” on former Ukranian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, as he put it.
