New Moby Video Depicts Donald Trump’s Rise And A Violent Demise 19.6.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Moby believes that it is “obvious” the world is “a millimeter away from collapse.” That fearful idea may already be seared into his own mind, but the artist wants to make sure that you too are considering the possibility of existential demise. “We’re slowly building awareness and you just hope that the awareness comes before we end up on a planet that’s uninhabitable,” said Moby in a recent phone conversation about his new album, “More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse.” But Moby understands that shouting “dire!” is not as newsworthy as “fire!” He expressed frustration that in the “bleeds it leads approach” to media, topical “dramatic” stories win attention over the slow killers, such as antibiotic resistance and climate change. Along with his fear that the world is ending is a fear that nobody cares to notice.

Want to go vegan? One author’s advice: Do it gradually. 12.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
If you like reading cookbooks for more than the recipes, you need to read Ann Hodgman, one of the few cookbook writers whose introductions (we call them headnotes) and even recipe names regularly make me chuckle, if not guffaw. Her latest book, “Vegan Food for the Rest of Us: Recipes Even You Will Love,” (Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017) is no exception, except now, as you can tell by that title, Hodgman, 60, is bringing her matter-of-fact sense of humor to the topic of vegan cooking,...
