Quick! I need to know your favorite (local) sandwich 20.6.2011 Seattle Times: Top stories
In honor of the summer of fun (summer? what's that?), I'm enlisting your aid once again. This time, I want to know: What's your favorite sandwich? Let's leave burgers (for another day) and banh mi (which I've recently riffed on) out of the discussion. Otherwise, if breadstuffs and the stuff that stuffs them are involved, it's fair game. So, game on! Tell me where -- in the Greater Seattle area -- do you go to get your gotta-have-it sandwich. And please do tell: what's in it and on it that makes it so great?

Prison farm grows a winning formula 18.6.2011 Seattle Times: Top stories
Prison food has never enjoyed a great reputation. But the quarter-million pounds of produce grown annually by inmates at the United States Penitentiary at Leavenworth just might change that. It's fresh, free, feeds the less fortunate and even has helped inmates get good jobs after being released — all without costing taxpayers a nickel.

Don’t ban raw milk because of the E. coli outbreak 17.6.2011 Grist Magazine
by David Gumpert. As someone who follows closely the relentless campaign by the nation’s medical and public health establishments against raw milk , I’ve been waiting for the other shoe to drop in the European food-borne illness disaster . The “other shoe” is for some scientist or government public health official to seek to link the European tragedy to the battle here over raw milk. Sound crazy? I’d say. Verge on the paranoid? Definitely. After all, among all the culprits publicly linked to the tragedy—cucumbers, tomatoes, and, most recently, sprouts—dairy products of any kind have been noticeably absent. But sure enough, it finally happened, and from CNN no less. The major media outlet published an editorial that sought to elucidate lessons from the European outbreak, and the key lesson turns out to be that the U.S. should ban raw milk (and raw juices). “Though it (the European outbreak) is not a reason to panic, this incident should ...

Flood response in Senegal: saving lives 24/7 17.6.2011 Oxfam International RSS main feed
Oxfam's emergency fund allows a fast response to the severe flooding in suburbs of Dakar. It doesn’t take much rain to create a flood in Pikine. It’s a low-lying city just outside Senegal’s capital Dakar. The water table is near the surface, there are pockets of marshy areas, and the city lacks adequate drainage systems, so if it really rains hard, a flood is inevitable. Abdoulaye N’Dao, a retired electrician, said the 2010 rains and floods in Pikine were some of the worst he had ever seen. Credit: Jeff Deutsch/Oxfam America Unfortunately, that’s just what happened in September and October 2010. Abdoulaye N’Dao, a gregarious retired electrician with grey dread locks says the flooding in 2010 “was the most difficult compared to earlier ones… there was a lot more water.” He says his house had water up to his ankles in some of the rooms; he and his extended family of 25 people were bailing water out of the house and its courtyard for days. “Maybe crocodiles and frogs can live like ...

Hey, Vilsack: Big Ag won’t feed the world or make jobs 16.6.2011 Grist Magazine
by Tom Philpott. Cross-posted from Mother Jones . Back in March, USDA secretary Tom Vilsack spoke at an event called the Commodity Classic in Tampa, Fla. Sponsored by agribusiness giants Monsanto, BASF, John Deere, Dow AgroSciences, Dupont, Syngenta, and Archer Daniels Midland, among others, the event hails itself as the “premier national trade show and convention for corn, soy, wheat, and sorghum farmers.” According to an account in the trade journal Agri-Pulse , Vilsack spoke “with sometimes evangelistic fervor.” He thundered against critics of corn-based ethanol, reiterated the Obama administration’s goal of doubling U.S. farm exports by 2014 by ramming open foreign markets, and praised the assembled farmers and agribusiness flacks for their record of “ensuring affordable food for U.S. families,” Agri-Pulse reported. The former governor of Iowa ended his speech on an even more flattering note: “The farmers in this room have provided the ...

Returning to the Caveman Diet 16.6.2011 Green Lifestyle and Sustainable Culture News - ENN
In today's age of highly processed food, packaged and shaped to look like animals, filled with ingredients we have never heard of, it is tempting to return to a diet from a much simpler time. A new fad that is catching on, known as the Paleolithic or "paleo" diet, aims to return people to a more "natural" way of eating. Before agriculture, people would eat lean meats, fruits, and vegetables, and they would avoid grains and processed foods. Is this what is really best for human consumption? According to a new book, the so-called caveman diet was abandoned for a reason, and the belief that it is superior is pure hokum.
