Obama Administration Report Card: Domestic Policy 21.12.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Grade C+ Overall Grade C Obama came to power with a historic opportunity in that he had strong political support to enact far-reaching social reforms with the Democrats controlling the House of Representatives and Congress. However, Obama made the fateful error of ignoring and demobilizing his progressive political base and appointed Wall Street figures to head his economic policy team and conservative Democrats like Rahm Emmanuel who were hostile to progressive ideals. Obama's failings opened the door for the Tea Party movement and GOP while economic recovery from the 2008 financial crash was slow to materialize. Obama is a charismatic speaker who led a scandal free administration. He faced a racist backlash and unprecedented efforts by a radicalized GOP to undermine his presidency. However, he himself was too vacillating, adopting a style as one critic put it in which he would "give away 90 percent of the ground before even starting to negotiate." He ceded too much on health care reform, deregulation, ...

Meatless Monday: Cool Beans, Hot Jazz and More Ways to Celebrate the International Year of Pulses 1.8.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Nutrition, sustainability , versatility, affordability, sheer deliciousness -- there's so many reasons to love dried beans, especially now, the  International Year of Pulses . I've been celebrating all year, blogging, teaching and presenting about them, including later this month at Farm to Table Experience in New Orleans, but my favorite way to celebrate is to cook and share them --a pot of pulses brings the fun. I'm soaking red beans now to have a pot of red beans and rice ready for August 4, Louis Armstrong's birthday. The jazz great so loved New Orleans and the city's signature dish, he'd sign autographs, Red beans and ricely yours. Like many bean dishes, RBR, was created as dish to satisfy the belly and stretch the budget. Honoring culinary traditions are part of the pleasure of cooking and eating for me, but so are riffing, innovating and reinterpreting, doing with ingredients what musicians do with melodic form -- kitchen jazz. Pulses welcome that. Their meaty but meatless chew invites me to ...

Grabbing Puglia by the Handlebars 3.6.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Last winter friends invited me to go on a bike trip in Puglia . I admit that until the moment I sent in my deposit, I had never even heard of Puglia. But it sounded like a wonderfully warm and fun adventure after a very long and snowy winter. Having traveled with Butterfield and Robinson before I looked forward to the mental break and re-charging of my batteries that comes from taking in the beautiful surroundings and letting their guides do all the work as you relax into the landscape. I knew they would live up to their slogan, "slow down to see the world" and that's precisely what I wanted to do. When I live in the present, incredible things happen. For example, what I learned in Puglia. The Heartbeat of the Slow Food Movement Puglia, considered the breadbasket of Italy, has been at the forefront of the "slow food" movement whose mission it is to reconnect people with food, so they are educated and empowered to make better decisions about their food choices. This discovery was made over lunch at a ...

FYI, You Can Make Dog Food In A Slow Cooker 20.5.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Any reader of Michael Pollan knows this to be true: "If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don't."  Eating fresh, home-cooked meals isn't only better for your health, it's better for your life . And the same applies to your dog. Why should you feed your pet unknown ingredients in canned dog food when you can make something delicious yourself? You'd have more control over the nutrients, with the same emotional benefits of sharing a meal with your pet that you'd have with a human. The following infographic from Breeder Retriever shows some basic guidelines for using your slow cooker to make dog food, one layer at a time. But we have to urge you to use caution: this is a formula, not a recipe. A 2013 study in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association found that most homemade dog food -- even recipes created by veterinarians -- rarely provided dogs with a complete set of the essential nutrients  that meet established canine health standards. "Homemade food is a great ...

People Are Starving In An Iraqi City Surrounded By U.S.-Backed Forces 29.4.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Every week, we bring you one overlooked aspect of the stories that made news in recent days. You noticed the media forgot all about another story’s basic facts? Tweet @TheWorldPost or let us know on our Facebook page . People are starving in the Iraqi city of Fallujah because the Islamic State militant group, also known as ISIS, won’t let them leave -- and Iraqi forces surrounding the city aren't letting supplies in. Between 30,000 and 60,000 civilians have been trapped inside Fallujah since Iraqi troops and militiamen encircled the ISIS-occupied city in January, humanitarian groups say .  Since then, shops and markets have run out of basic food supplies, cooking gas and fuel are nonexistent, and electricity only works a few hours a day, the World Food Programme  said earlier this month. The price of wheat has skyrocketed sixfold since December.  "For the past several months, it has been very difficult to get supplies into Fallujah, especially medicines and food," Lise Grande, the United Nations ...

Food, Fashion, and Family Planning: The Final Carbon Frontier? 6.4.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Cutting greenhouse gas emissions from our personal carbon footprint will put all of us in some new, and potentially uncomfortable, situations as we move to more sustainable lifestyles. While it's culturally acceptable to go green in the lightbulb and light transit categories, other conversations - such as more climate-friendly food, fashion and even family planning - remain marginalized. Whether it's veganism, slow and sustainable fashion, or childlessness, there are some critical conversations that we must have, post-Paris climate agreement, that involve what we're consuming and creating. No more business as usual if we're going to slow the rapidly warming planet. In an effort to reduce my footprint further, this year I became an "end-of-the-liner". Since there's no easy way to talk about this, it's a handy euphemism for a vasectomy. I haven't yet had kids of my own but I've decided to preemptively put an end to my branch of the Shank ancestral line. While perhaps appearing antithetical to my family's ...
