The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor

The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor


Used – Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, started his literary career with the publication of The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor…’On February 22 we were told that we would be returning to Columbia.’ In 1955 eight crew members of Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were swept overboard. Velasco alone survived, drifting on a raft for ten days without food or water. Marquez retells the survivor’s amazing tale of endurance,

Supermarkets and Agri-food Supply Chains

Supermarkets and Agri-food Supply Chains


This book analyses the gradual shift in the distribution of power in agri-food supply chains, away from the manufacturers of branded food products to the global supermarket chains such as Wal-Mart and Tesco. This transformation has had a profound effect on the food we eat, together with the ways in which food is produced, processed and marketed. The authors assess the causes and consequences of this transformation, and evaluate the impacts along the whole supply chain. The book considers a variety of theoretical and cultural approaches to the analysis of change in the organization and management of the agri-food supply chain, and presents a series of studies focusing upon the effects of changes in Europe, North America and less developed countries. The impacts on farmers and workers, and implications for the environment, are also considered. The contested nature of these changes suggests a number of possible future scenarios for the global agri-food system, which are also analysed and evaluated. This book will be of great interest to postgraduate and undergraduate students in business studies, sociology, politics, geography, and cultural studies. Academic researchers and teachers, and policy makers and researchers in business, government and industry will also find much of interest.

President Obama Delivers an Update on the Economy, Iraq, and Ukraine

President Obama Delivers a Statement on the Economy, Iraq, and Ukraine

President Barack Obama delivers a statement in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House.

August 28, 2014.

(Official White House Photo by Amanda Lucidon)

At the White House this afternoon, President Obama provided an update on important issues ahead of his attendance at the NATO Summit in the United Kingdom next week.  

The President first addressed the "number one thing that most Americans care about" — our economy. He noted that the economy is growing "at a stronger clip" than predicted and that we have more work to do to continue this momentum: 

This morning, we found out that our economy actually grew at a stronger clip in the 2nd quarter than we originally thought.  Companies are investing.  Consumers are spending.  Over the past four and a half years, our businesses have created now nearly 10 million new jobs. So there are reasons to feel good about the direction we’re headed.  But as everybody knows, there’s a lot more we should be doing to make sure more Americans benefit from the progress that we've made and I am going to be pushing Congress hard on this when they return next week.

As the U.S. military continues to carry out targeted airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq and to address the humanitarain situation on the ground, the President reiterated his commitment as Commander-in-Chief to "always do what is necessary to protect the American people and defend against evolving threats to our homeland."

"Our military action in Iraq has to be part of a broader, comprehensive strategy to protect our people and to support our partners who are taking the fight to ISIL. And that starts with Iraq’s leaders building on the progress they’ve made so far and forming the inclusive government that will unite their country and strengthen their security forces to confront ISIL."

The President reported that our strikes have cost ISIL terrorists arms and equipment, and Iraqi and Kurdish forces are continuing to push them back.  The U.S. will consider a range of options but he made clear that a successful strategy will require working with an inclusive Iraqi government and strong regional partners to meet this threat:

Now ISIL poses an immediate threat to the people of Iraq and the people throughout the region. And that’s why our military action in Iraq has to be part of a broader, comprehensive strategy to protect our people and to support our partners who are taking the fight to ISIL. And that starts with Iraq’s leaders building on the progress they’ve made so far and forming the inclusive government that will unite their country and strengthen their security forces to confront ISIL.

Any successful strategy, though, also needs strong regional partners. I’m encouraged so far that countries in the region — countries that don’t always agree on many things — increasingly recognize the primacy of the threat ISIL poses to all of them.  And I’ve asked Secretary Kerry to travel to the region to continue to build the coalition that’s needed to meet this threat.  As I’ve said, rooting out a cancer like ISIL will not be quick or easy but I’m confident that we can — and we will — working closely with our allies and partners. 

For our part, I’ve directed Secretary Hagel and our Joint Chiefs of Staff to prepare a range of options. I’ll be meeting with my National Security Council again this evening as we continue to develop that strategy. And I’ve been consulting with Congress and I’ll continue to do so in the days ahead.

#DirtyDenier$ Day 20: Senator James Inhofe

2014-08-22-JamesInhofe.jpg

Though the winds often come sweeping down the plains in Oklahoma, they have not blown hard enough to clear away the misguided, misleading views of Senator James Inhofe. Inhofe is a top ranking Dirty Denier because of his campaign funding from dirty sources and his terrible votes against the environment.

In addition, Inhofe wrote the book, literally, on climate denialism (The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, published in 2012). His whacky views on climate change take a page from the playbook of the most conservative groups promoting dirty fossil fuels. And if Republicans take control of the Senate, Inhofe would be in line to be chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, where he would have a stranglehold on environmental progress.

He has received an astounding $ 1,671,521 in contributions to his campaign committee and Leadership PAC from the oil & gas industry over the course of his political career, including $ 489,250 in the 2014 election cycle alone. Among his top contributors are individuals and political action committees associated with Koch Industries, the multinational corporation run by the libertarian oil baron Koch brothers and their cronies, and a leading funder of climate change denialism, and Murray Energy, the largest underground coal mining company in America, which has sued the EPA multiple times and has an outspoken climate changer denier as CEO.

Oil companies ConocoPhillips, Devon Energy, Exxon Mobil, and OGE Energy are also among the top Inhofe contributors over the course of his career. Maybe they like Inhofe’s outrageous claims, such as calling the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a “Gestapo bureaucracy”, and saying that “those individuals from the far left want us to believe it’s because we are contributing CO2 to the atmosphere, that’s causing global warming. It’s all about money.”

He has launched a full-on attack of the EPA’s new Clean Power Plan. Inhofe consistently votes against the environment: he has taken numerous votes against cleaning up carbon pollution, against cleaning up pollution in our air and water from power plants and industrial farms, and against funds for disaster relief and shoreline planning in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Yet he strongly supports subsidies for the oil, gas and coal industries despite their record profits and lower than average tax rate. This is why he has a lifetime score with the League of Conservation Voters of only 5 percent, among the very worst in the Senate.

Our advice: While Senator Inhofe continues to deny humans are contributing to climate change, 67 percent of Oklahomans want “the government to step in and limit greenhouse gas emissions from industry.” Senator Inhofe needs to start aligning his votes with his constituents. It’s time for action to protect Oklahomans and Americans across the country from the health and environmental impacts of the dirty, old fossil fuels industry.

LAPD Names Officers Sharlton Wampler, Antonio Villegas In Ezell Ford Shooting

LOS ANGELES — More than two weeks after police in a South Los Angeles neighborhood fatally shot Ezell Ford, a black man who was unarmed and mentally ill, the Los Angeles Police Department has identified the two officers involved in the shooting.

“The Los Angeles Police officers involved in the use of lethal force in Newton Division on August 11, 2014 were Police Officer III Sharlton Wampler, Serial No. 36135, and Police Officer II Antonio Villegas, Serial No. 38218, both assigned to the Newton Area Gang Enforcement Detail,” a press statement issued by the LAPD late Thursday reads.

“The LAPD has a longstanding policy of releasing the names of officers involved in shootings after investigating evidence of threats that could jeopardize the personal safety of the officers or their families,” the statement continues. “In this particular case, it was necessary to investigate evidence brought to the Department’s attention regarding potential threats to the safety of the officers and ensure that measures were taken to mitigate those threats. In each incident, the Department carefully reviews and investigates potential threats against its personnel while maintaining its commitment to disclose appropriate information, such as the identities of officers involved in uses of lethal force, to the public.”

Wampler’s name had been leaked Wednesday by Los Angeles blogger and political analyst Jasmyne Cannick. Cannick also named another officer, but he was not one of those identified by the LAPD. She said the names came from “a reliable source.”

A LAPD spokesperson declined to comment to The Huffington Post on whether the naming of two officers the day before by Cannick prompted the department to finally release their identities by the end of the day Thursday.

The announcement follows multiple protests from devastated and angry South LA residents, who have been demanding the names since the incident occurred earlier in the month. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck had said last week that the department would wait to release the names until it could be sure that the officers were not in danger of any retaliation.

Just last week, the Los Angeles Police Protective League pointed at a rap video and song that the police union claimed came from a “street gang” and called for “revenge” for the Ford killing. The artist who wrote the song told HuffPost that he and everyone else who appeared in the video are not affiliated with any street gangs and that the song was written to protest the shooting, not to call for revenge.

The police have launched an investigation into Ford’s death, but have put an “investigative hold” on the coroner’s autopsy report to prevent witness testimony from being tainted. Ed Winter, the assistant chief of investigation at the coroner’s office, told HuffPost that he didn’t know how long the hold would last.

Putting a hold on an autopsy report is common in cases that are ongoing, LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith told local public radio station KPCC.

However, others saw the move as controversial. Earl Ofari Hutchinson, president of the civil rights community forum Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable, questioned the LAPD’s decision.

“The blocking of the release [of the] Ford autopsy report further fuels suspicions about the LAPD’s version of the Ford killing,” Hutchinson said last week.

Steven Lerman, a lawyer for the Ford family, similarly cast doubt on the official explanation for withholding the autopsy results, telling HuffPost that he believes the police have delayed the report’s release for “political reasons.”

Much like the Michael Brown case in Missouri, police and eyewitness versions of what actually took place shortly after 8:10 p.m. on Aug. 11 in the Florence neighborhood of South LA vary wildly.

The police say that during an “investigative stop,” a struggle ensued in which Ford “turned, grabbed one of the officers.” After that, “they fell to the ground,” and Ford allegedly attempted to pull an officer’s handgun from its holster. The “partner officer then fired his handgun and the officer on the ground fired his backup weapon” at Ford.

“It is unknown if the suspect has any gang affiliations,” the LAPD said in a statement after the killing.

But other eyewitnesses, neighbors and family members dispute the police department’s story. Neighbors of Ford’s told HuffPost earlier this month that he was not involved in gang activity in any way. An eyewitness told KTLA that Ford was shot “in the back” while he was “laying down.” That witness also said Ford’s mental state was well-known in the neighborhood. His mother, Tritobia Ford, told HuffPost last week that her son showed signs of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

One eyewitness told HuffPost that he heard a police officer shout, “Shoot him!” before three bullets were unloaded into Ezell, who was already on the ground. And a neighbor claimed that “racial bulls–t” was at the heart of what happened on that street.

The LAPD’s Force Investigation Division and Robbery-Homicide Division are looking into the incident.

3 Ways to Unlock Opportunity in What Scares You

Four months ago, Arianna Huffington that I specialized in heartbeats. She was keynoting at an event hosted by a customer of my former company, and I’d stood up to ask a question.

I took the mic and looked at the audience. Then, I made eye contact with her.

Oh.
My.
God.

I started to straight up quiver.

Hi, I’m an entrepreneur from California. But right now, I specialize in heartbeats.

For a few seconds, all I felt was fear. Hundreds of people were looking at me. She (one of my all-time idols) was looking at me. I froze.

Fear and wonder: My entrepreneurial journey

The moment was not unlike one I spent on the floor four years ago, crying. It was Dec. 24, and I was 24. That day, my divorce was final.

I was terrified. What would I do? Where would I live? Where would I go?

I knew I needed to make some significant life changes — namely to accept responsibility for behavior patterns that had gotten me where I was. I also had to stop blaming the past (and a number of other common excuses).

I wanted to like myself. To get there, I needed to harness my fear… and re-write my story.

As one expression of that desire, I started a company that specialized in telling stories for a certain subset of technology enterprise. As with my personal narrative, I had an incredible opportunity to participate in big changes in the industry, and I often felt paralyzed.

Just as learning to think for yourself is hard, so is creating cross-channel marketing strategies that unlock emotions and inspire people… to buy business software.

I expected to feel terror along the way. And I did, much of the time:

– That quarter that I double paid my taxes on accident and couldn’t get a refund, even though our biggest customer hadn’t paid in months.

– That week I barely slept because we’d lost a 70-page eBook document two days before it was due.

– Those days I first raised our prices, let a contractor go, and lost a client.

– The many nights where I was learning how to not keep myself up with the “what ifs.”

What I didn’t expect was how much wonder I’d also get to experience:

– When our customer paid the overdue bill, one day before payroll. (I can’t tell you how hard I cried.)

– When I rewrote that entire damn eBook, myself, and turned it in on time. (And when the client loved it, and scheduled us for a follow-up.)

– Those days that clients paid higher prices willingly, when team members told me how fulfilling work was, when big name companies joined our customer pool — and grew.

– The days I went to sleep early and got up refreshed.

And therein lies the secret to fear.

The truth is: We’re all afraid.

We’ve all had moments like mine on the floor. And it’s those moments where terror can become the sandbox for astronomical transformation.

Joy. Amazement. Wonder.

Something happens when we look fear in the face, acknowledge its power, and persist. So the next time you find yourself freaking out, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. What exactly feels like a threat here? As an entrepreneur, I learned to develop “worst case strategies,” so if that “what if” happened, I’d be ready. (I reminded myself of that any time I started to freak out.)
  2. How can I see this as an opportunity? As humans, we’re understandably scared by risk. But behind every risk well-taken is a huge reward. Ruminate on what you stand to gain, if everything worked out. What we obsess over is what most often comes true.
  3. What would happen if I weren’t afraid? Just asking that simple phrase — what would happen if — sets your brain on an entirely different track.

I had a choice there, in front of Arianna. Would I choose to focus on what freaked me out… or on what I wanted? In my case, you can guess what happened, given where I’m writing this post. (I’ll share that story later.)

What could it be in yours?

It’s Not Just About Breastfeeding

In 1954, my grandmother left the hospital with zero education about breastfeeding. Of course she knew of the activity mothers were supposed to do, but within a day, not knowing what colostrum was, she decided she didn’t have any milk, so she fed my mother formula and then started her on solids (baby cereal) at 3 days old.

Fast forward to the late ’70s. My mother nursed me, but when faced with difficulties nursing my brother, she switched to formula the first week. She ended up with a terrible case of mastitis and several clogged ducts, and struggled with breast health until breast cancer took her life at the age of 56. I wonder, if she had had more access to resources when my brother was born, if she would have been able to continue to nurse him. Could the outcome have been different for her?

When my first daughter was born in 2004 in Berkeley, I was given so much information and support that I knew I would be able to succeed with my breastfeeding goals. Even then, I didn’t feel totally confident with myself and had reservations about nursing.

I remember pumping before a plane flight when my daughter was 3 months old, because “How would I nurse on a plane?!”

At a certain point, I lost all concern about who saw me nurse, what other people thought about my nursing and the role I chose in feeding my children.

The San Francisco Bay area is generally very tolerant and this likely was a factor in my freedom to nurse in any way I pleased, without even a second glance. I nursed while waiting in line at coffee shops; I nursed in restaurants; I nursed in stores; I nursed at church — and pretty much anyone who has spent time with me these past 10 years has seen me nurse one of my babies at some time or another.

I only found out recently that nursing in public was a problem for some people. That mothers have been asked to leave, that photos of nursing mothers have been viewed as pornographic, that women are told nursing is disgusting, or are judged for their choices concerning the care of their babies.

I was shocked. In my view, any ban on the care of babies, sexualization of breastfeeding or judgment cast on mothers is not only an attack against breastfeeding, rooted in ignorance or hate — it is also an attack against women, their health and society as a whole. It is an attack against basic and fundamental human rights.

Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

It is interesting to note, however, that if I was faced with a situation of being told I needed to leave some public place because of my breastfeeding, I would leave. I would not stand up for myself in that instance, because I would be more concerned for the care and protection of my baby and sheltering them from a potentially confrontational or emotionally charged incident.

This makes mothers and babies an easy target for discrimination, isolation and degradation. In their efforts to protect their children, mothers may sacrifice their fundamental human rights.

The issues surrounding breastfeeding are much bigger than just breastfeeding. It’s how we treat each other; it’s how we regard our bodies; it’s how we educate ourselves and others and it’s how we stand up and defend human rights for all against fixed views, bigotry or authoritarian ignorance and hate.

All women have a fundamental human right in the care of their children, and when we are talking about breastfeeding, let’s steer the conversation away from breasts and ideas of decency. Let’s talk about human rights and the prevention of their perversion and destruction.

You Only Live Once, So Do It Warren Buffett’s Way

“You’d get very rich if you thought of yourself as having a card with only twenty punches in a lifetime, and every financial decision used up one punch. You’d resist the temptation to dabble. You’d make more good decisions and you’d make more big decisions.”
–Warren Buffett , quoted in The Snowball by Alice Schroeder

This week Warren Buffett celebrates his 84th birthday.

Those of you who follow my blogs know I have a bit of a man crush on Buffett, not just because of his investing acumen but because he has always seemed to me endowed with a kind of uber-common sense — an ability to cut to the heart of a situation or an issue and capture it in a few words, understandable to experts and common folk alike.

Lists of his “10 greatest” or “18 greatest” (or however many greatest) sayings pop up everywhere in online searches. But the Buffettism that’s stayed with me is the one at the top of this blog post — namely the notion of a punch card (a quaintly antiquated thing you don’t run across very often these days).

Buffett used his punch-card analogy in an investment context. It’s consistent with his belief that really profitable investment decisions are few and far between. His counsel to individual investors has always been to “wait for the fat pitch.” (See “Bored Investors Beware.”)

But I think the punch-card analogy applies equally well to life, and to the decisions that define and shape our lives over the five, six, seven or eight decades most of us are on Earth. For someone graduating from high school, I think the number 20 is just about right. For someone like me, in middle age, the number of unpunched punches on the card is a lot smaller. There might be only two or three left.

The point is that, whether it’s two or 20, the number of inflection points in our lives is a lot smaller than it often seems. The trick is having the wisdom, or the instinct, to recognize “fat pitches” at the time they show up, which is always easier in hindsight. Then we need to make our big decisions count.

Getting married. Having children (or not). Making a career change. Starting or investing in a business. Those are obvious hole punches.

By contrast, the last two times I punched my card, it had less to do with me, personally, than with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.

The first of these was agreeing to chair Wall Street’s advocacy group — the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association — in the wake of the financial crisis. I did so because I never wanted our clients, the investing public, to again have to go through the trauma and disruption they experienced in their financial and personal lives during that unprecedented and volatile period.

My second recent hole punch was deciding to help lead, in 2011 and 2012, a campaign to defeat a constitutional amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage in my home state of Minnesota. I got a lot of advice and counsel against getting involved, as a business leader, in what became known as the “Vote No” campaign. But every bone in my body told me this was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of LGBT residents in a state long known for its progressive brand, inclusive culture and values of respect and tolerance.

As it turned out, the support of the business community was critical to not only defeating the amendment but, six months later, legalizing same-sex marriage in Minnesota.

That was last year. Just this month two gay friends who had lived together for 34 years before getting married last year at Minneapolis’ City Hall thanked me, with tears in their eyes, for being able to celebrate their first-ever wedding anniversary.

I wish someone had told me about Buffett’s punch-card analogy when I was a lot younger. However, I’m glad I have the opportunity to use it now to recognize and lean into the few remaining “big decisions” in my life. I pass it on here as a birthday gift to others — not from me but from Warren Buffett, who, by the simple arithmetic of his own analogy, has made a big decision once in every four of his 84 years.

Climate Crisis a Public-Health Emergency Too: Why Nurses Will Join Climate March Sept. 21

Early last November Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda slammed into the Philippines, leaving more than 6,000 people dead, tens of thousands injured, and many more bereft of their homes and livelihoods. The storm was called the most powerful tropical cyclone ever to make landfall.

Few of the international media who flew in to report on the devastation noted an underlying cause: subsurface ocean waters recorded at 9 degrees Fahrenheit above average, fueling the intensity of the storm.

But National Nurses United, which rapidly dispatched a number of nurse volunteers, who provided basic, hands-on medical support for thousands of the injured, never lost sight of a broader concern.

Taking a break one day from the medical mission, RN volunteers joined a press conference with local healthcare and environmental activists, noting that huge storms are not new but are far worse because of the consequences of the human-made climate crisis.

2014-08-27-Estanciapressconf.jpg
RNs at climate crisis press conference following Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda

“Climate change and global warming has brought this misfortune to the Philippines. This affects us globally, from Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy in the United States to typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines,” said RN volunteer Jane Sandoval at the press conference.

Given those experiences and what nurses see at home, NNU members join the climate march in New York Sept. 21 because they see the effects of the climate crisis and experience it in their communities and, most importantly, with their patients.

2014-08-27-Carson2.jpg
Protesting tracking and tar sands in Carson, California

For registered nurses the climate crisis is a clear and present public-health emergency as well as a creeping bomb for our planet — and they draw a direct link between extreme forms of energy extraction and the horrific impacts they see on human health.

NNU members, for example, have been on the front lines, speaking out and protesting against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, working to stop the expansion of polluting refineries in Los Angeles and Richmond, California, and standing with community members to rid Southside Chicago of petcoke piles.

Opposing Keystone, NNU members have joined multiple public protests and sponsored a march across the Golden Gate Bridge and a national press conference with Sen. Barbara Boxer in Washington to highlight the harmful effects of the extraction, transport and refining of crude tar-sands oil.

At the press conference in March, Brenda Prewitt, an RN in Houston, cited existing serious problems with pollution in that city and noted that the last thing area residents need is the arrival of dangerous tar-sands oil, which has been linked to reduced lung function, aggravation of cardiac systems and other ills, she said.

Standing near the latest in a series of oil spills in Los Angeles weeks later, RN Sandy Mulcahey said, “Our patients don’t have to just be in a hospital. They’re here in the community. It’s our duty to take preventive measures to make sure our environment is safe.”

Participating in a refinery protest in Richmond, California, RN DeAnn McEwen said, “As nurses we are particularly concerned about the disproportionate effects of toxic pollutants on the health of our community’s most vulnerable members.” She continued:

Children and infants are at greater risk due to their still-developing lungs and respiratory systems. The elderly and people with preexisting respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer all face greater risks than the general public. Low-income and working families, because they are more likely to live near heavily traveled roadways and industrial districts, also suffer more. When coupled with the fact that these families also are less likely to have adequate healthcare coverage, this creates a real crisis in our community.

2014-08-27-Chicagopetcokeaction2.jpeg
At a Chicago petcoke protest

Joining Chicago protests in May against toxic dust wafting off petcoke piles near homes and children’s playgrounds, RN Rolanda Watson noted:

The first thing they taught us as nurse practitioners is that we are advocates. We’ve been seeing a rise in respiratory illnesses — so many colds, sinus problems, bronchitis, COPD, pneumonias. People will say it’s the weather or something is just going around. But babies aren’t supposed to have asthma. There’s a reason for all this.

Turning to embattled residents still suffering from the effects of Haiyan and an oil spill that it aggravated last winter, RN Ashley Forsberg concluded, “We want you to know that we and our union are so proud to stand with you today in solidarity to advocate for the political and social changes necessary to fight against that threat together.”

Appetite for Change

Appetite for Change


In this engaging inquiry, originally published in 1989 and now fully updated for the twenty-first century, Warren J. Belasco considers the rise of the “countercuisine” in the 1960s, the subsequent success of mainstream businesses in turning granola, herbal tea, and other “revolutionary” foodstuffs into profitable products; the popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets; and the increasing availability of organic foods. From reviews of the previous edition: “Although Red Zinger never became our national drink, food and eating changed in America as a result of the social revolution of the 1960s. According to Warren Belasco, there was political ferment at the dinner table as well as in the streets. In this lively and intelligent mixture of narrative history and cultural analysis, Belasco argues that middle-class America eats differently today than in the 1950 because of the way the counterculture raised the national consciousness about food.”—Joan Jacobs Brumberg, The Nation “This book documents not only how cultural rebels created a new set of foodways, brown rice and all, but also how American capitalists commercialized these innovations to their own economic advantage.

Working Together to Support Our Military Families

Every day, the men and women of our military perform incredible service on behalf of our country. And as the President has made clear, just as our service members have made a commitment to America, we have a commitment to them – to have their backs at home while they serve around the world.

A new partnership announced today by President Obama with leading banks and financial services institutions is part of meeting that commitment by making it easier for service members to access important financial protections that will save them money and help protect their financial wellbeing. 

In a speech at the American Legion's 96th National Convention today, the President outlined how his Administration and five of the country’s largest mortgage servicers are working together to help more members of our active-duty military lower their monthly mortgage payments. Our preliminary analysis suggests that this new partnership will help tens of thousands of military families save money by reducing their mortgage interest rates. On a $ 200,000 mortgage, even an interest rate reduction of only 1 percent will result in over $ 1,500 a year in savings for our military families – money they can put toward daily expenses, retirement savings, or sending their children to college.

Top Official For GOP Governors Praised Their Strong Partnership With Koch Network

WASHINGTON — One of the top officials responsible for electing Republican governors this November lauded the partnership between his organization and a leading arm of the Koch brothers’ political network during a mid-summer conference.

Phil Cox, executive director of the Republican Governors Association, was a guest speaker at a June 16 event hosted by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch in Dana Point, California. During his speech, audio of which was obtained by The Undercurrent and shared exclusively with The Huffington Post, Cox spoke frequently about the strong relationship that his group has enjoyed with Americans for Prosperity, a Koch-funded political advocacy group.

“We’ve been very blessed because of your support of this seminar,” Cox said at the beginning of his remarks, praising a range of Koch groups. “We’ve really had no stronger partner over the last four years than Americans for Prosperity. So thank you for all that you do.”

Close work between campaign entities and outside groups is hardly novel in the post-Citizens United era. Democratic candidates have also leaned heavily on deep-pocketed donors, networks of donors (such as the Democracy Alliance) and third-party organizations to fill in the gaps of their campaigns. What stands out about Cox’s remarks is his unfiltered description of the relationship. According to Cox, Americans for Prosperity and the Republican Governors Association aren’t just like-minded ideological entities pulling in the same direction. They are institutional supplements, working together in the legally murky corners of campaign finance law.

“The RGA works with multiple groups to promote free market principles, limited government and lower taxes,” said RGA spokesman Jon Thompson when asked about Cox’s comments. “Americans for Prosperity has been a leader for these policies that help grow jobs and success in the states, and the RGA is proud of our strong partnership.”

On his panel, titled “2014 Debate: Immediate Opportunities to Defend Freedom,” Cox followed Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, and Marc Short, president of Freedom Partners, another Koch-backed group. His comments focused primarily on the state of play in gubernatorial contests, then five months before the elections. (Portions of the audio were redacted to protect the anonymity of the individual who provided it — “a source who was present at the event,” according to an official at The Undercurrent.)

The map was tilted in the Democratic Party’s favor, Cox said back in June. Six states with gubernatorial races and Republican governors looked competitive this fall — Florida, Maine, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin –- compared to just three with Democratic governors — Arkansas, Connecticut and Illinois.

The outlook appears largely the same today, save for Ohio where the Democratic candidate’s campaign has imploded.

But for the help of the Koch network, Cox said, the landscape could well have been worse. He gave credit to Americans for Prosperity “and other groups” who were “heavily involved” in the 2012 recall election that failed to unseat Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R).

“In Wisconsin,” Cox said, “it was a really tough battle in 2012. AFP was a tremendous partner.”

In Florida’s gubernatorial battle this year, Cox said, the presence of outside money would help Republicans keep pace in what he called “the most expensive race this cycle,” Senate contests included. He said the Republican Governors Association would spend more than $ 20 million to assist Gov. Rick Scott — “the largest single expenditure in the RGA’s history.” But that would be only part of the money going into the election. Cox predicted that “well over $ 100 million” would be spent in all, “maybe as much as $ 150 million.”

At other points in his presentation, Cox spoke in more specific terms, giving conference attendees a small window into the Republican Governors Association’s 2014 playbook. Having already spent $ 18 million to help Walker in Wisconsin over the past four years, Cox said, “This is a race we’re going to have to be engaged in right on until the end.” In Arkansas, he noted that his group was tying Gov. Mike Ross (D) to the stimulus and the auto bailout in attack ads and pledged “literally millions of dollars in get-out-the-vote activities.” And in Michigan, he said, the group “has, can and will continue to correctly invest in the state party,” stating that its investment “can impact get-out-the-vote effort that can help [Republican Senate candidate] Terri Lynn Land.”

Underscoring the complementary role that he saw Americans for Prosperity playing in the 2014 elections, Cox concluded with a thanks to “David specifically” — presumably David Koch -– “for his very strong support of the RGA and AFP’s great partnership over the last four years.”

Americans for Prosperity declined to comment for this article. Listen to Cox’s comments below:

For good-government watchdogs, the admission of a partnership between an ostensibly issue-oriented entity and a campaign apparatus sets off alarm bells. But several campaign finance lawyers told The Huffington Post that nothing in the Cox discussion likely crossed legal boundaries.

“A general discussion about a partnership, strong partnership, great partnerships, unique partnership, whatever, doesn’t really mean anything by itself,” said David Mason, a former chairman of the Federal Election Commission. Mason noted that because the Republican Governors Association reports its activities to the Internal Revenue Service and not the FEC, “it might mean that there is no federal issues at all.”

“Nothing you described to me sounds unusual or illegal,” he concluded.

But just because it’s legal doesn’t make it seemly. And other lawyers saw the Koch brothers’ retreat as yet another example of the current, everything-goes culture of campaigns.

“We are in a free-for-all legal world where there is a full-blown attack on what is left with the existing law,” said Stan Brand, a Washington lawyer with long experience in political cases. “We are back in the Wild West and the sheriff can’t control anything because it’s not clear what’s against the law.”

As Brand noted, cavalier treatment of federal campaign rules isn’t a feature unique to the Republican Governors Association or the Republican Party at large. Democrats have built up alliances of their own. President Barack Obama has appeared at fundraisers for super PACs supporting Senate and House Democratic candidates. He’s also attended a fundraiser at the home of top Democratic super PAC donor and hedge fund founder/environmentalist Tom Steyer, who himself has been a guest at the White House.

Steyer also happens to be a friend of the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin. Steyer’s group, Next Generation Climate, has spent heavily on ads in key gubernatorial races this year: $ 1.2 million so far in Florida and $ 1.5 million in Pennsylvania, with designs on Maine as well.

“We are competing in an open and transparent way,” said NextGen Climate spokesman Bobby Whithorne, “trying to level the playing field against the Koch brothers and their entrenched special interests. We know it’s an uphill battle and see this as David against the big oil Goliaths. … NextGen Climate is working in these races for the public interest, while the other side is spending its money on its own economic self-interest.”

Whithorne’s argument that NextGen Climate will be dramatically outspent by the Koch network is true on paper. The former group has plans to raise $ 100 million. At the June conference, Koch network officials confirmed that they plan to spend $ 290 million in 2014. But that comparison doesn’t tell the whole story: Other PACs, advocacy groups, unions, campaigns and campaign committees are pouring money into the November elections, too.

One indisputable fact is that there is a close relationship between the Koch brothers and the Republican Governors Association. In 2010, David Koch wrote a $ 1 million check to the association, which can take unlimited contributions from individual donors. In 2012, he upped the ante to $ 2 million. Through June 2014, he has donated $ 3.75 million while Koch Industries itself has given $ 525,000.

Betsey Stevenson: “94 Years Later, Here’s Where We Are:”

Last night, White House economist Betsey Stevenson sent the email below to the White House email list, telling the story of the progress women have made since gaining the right to vote — and what's still left to accomplish.

Didn't get the email? Make sure you're signed up for White House email updates.

Hi, everyone –

In 1776, Abigail Adams wrote to John Adams, then serving on the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, and reminded him to "not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands."

Seventy-two years later, in 1848, women across the country gathered together for the first women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York.

And it wasn't until 72 years after that, in 1920, that women in the United States officially gained the right to vote.

Let's be honest: Change hasn't ever exactly come quickly for women in this country. And 94 years later — while it's undeniable that women have made leaps and bounds in every facet of American life, from the classroom to the boardroom — it's not enough.

Today, on the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, we celebrate Women's Equality Day. And today, the day-to-day operations of too many businesses and institutions still don't reflect true gender equality. We've got the data to prove it.

Throughout the day, I've posted charts that tell the story of the progress we've made — and the challenges women still face in the workforce.

Take a look — and then share these with someone you think needs to see them.

Dirty Denier$ Day 19: Congressman Fred Upton

2014-08-22-FredUpton.jpg

Today’s Dirty Denier$ is Rep. Fred Upton, a Republican from Michigan and Chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee. Upton has used his leadership position to try to move the nation backward, and his record on clean air and climate change keeps getting worse.

Upton has been all over the map on the facts about climate change. In 2011, he said he didn’t believe humans are contributing to global climate change. Since then, he’s been mostly silent on that basic issue, but he’s been loud in his opposition to doing anything about climate. He has used extreme rhetoric to characterize the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan, calling it “an unconstitutional power grab that will kill millions of jobs” and a “train wreck.”

And consider that one of the first bills that Upton sponsored upon assuming the chairmanship of the committee would have permanently blocked EPA from doing anything at all to address carbon pollution. Moreover, the bill would have increased America’s dependence on oil by undermining efficiency standards for motor vehicles, and cost consumers $ 58 billion. Upton has also given his blessing to multiple bills to undo various aspects of the Clean Air Act.

The dirty fuel interests that have given nearly $ 2 million in campaign contributions to Upton over the course of his career are no doubt pleased with his record. However, the same can’t be said for his constituents back home. According to recent polling from the NRDC Action Fund in key states including Michigan, overwhelming majorities of voters in that group of states support strong action to stop dangerous carbon pollution. This includes 53% of Republicans. Michigan’s Republican Governor Rick Snyder has said, “People may not agree about why climate change is happening, but it is certainly affecting Michigan.”

Michigan has a lot to gain from a clean energy policy. In 2013 alone, Michigan announced more than 1700 jobs in the renewable energy sector, placing it 12th in the country for new job creation. And in a signal that better days are ahead for both the economy and the environment, 380 of those jobs were in clean vehicle manufacturing.

Our advice: It’s time for Congressman Upton to once again reinvent himself. It’s time to stop being a Dirty Denier$ and start being a clean energy champion for his state.

8 Lessons I Have Learned Since Giving Up Television

The day my cable was turned off for good, I was lying on my bed in the midst of the afternoon watching a reality show about people with odd sexual compulsions. As the cable guy cut my connection, a guy describing his fetish for smelly feet was interrupted mid-sentence.

“God took my cable away,” I texted my daughter.

I was joking, but, honestly, my obsession with TV had gotten out of hand, and while I’m sure there are some quality programs on television, I wasn’t watching any of them. In 2011, I had watched the entire Casey Anthony trial on CNN, and even though we lived hundred of miles from the nearest ocean, it was not unusual for me to spend a whole evening staring at maps of potential hurricane paths on The Weather Channel. And as if that weren’t enough, lately, I had become fascinated with reality shows like Honey Boo-Boo, 19 Kids And Counting, Hoarders, Breaking Amish and Sister Wives. These shows had made me feel better about myself — more clever, more classy, more together.

I might be moving from a gray Cape Cod in the country to a rustic cabin in the woods with no cable access, but at least I did not have a family of dead cats lying underneath the pile of open food cans in the midst of my living room. I did not eat laundry detergent. I had not yet been the subject of an intervention, drug related or otherwise. I did not eat spaghetti noodles doused in ketchup and butter. I had not been shunned. I did not have to drag nineteen children with me everywhere I went. And I certainly did not have to pretend to be pleased when my husband expressed his undying affection for another woman.

Though learning to live without television was a challenge at first, just last month, we passed the second anniversary of our new life here at the cabin, and at the risk of sounding overly hippyish, I thought this might be a good time to pause and reflect on some things I have learned and to offer a few nuggets of wisdom to those considering cutting their own cable connections:

1. I have figured out that one does not need to watch The Weather Channel regularly to know what the weather is going to be like. I have figured out that generally one can just walk outside and look at the sky and get a good idea of what’s ahead for the day.

2. I no longer mindlessly peruse quasi news channels thinking that I am getting actual news, and I no longer watch the disturbing stories of celebrities unfold before me ad nauseum because I find these stories to be, well, disturbing. I do not know what celebrity has just been arrested for shoplifting, whose spouse just slept around, who is in rehab or who is eerily thin. I have just so much emotional energy to give, and now I can expend that energy on people I actually know who have legal troubles or marital problems or addiction issues or eating disorders.

3. It has been two years since anyone has even tried to talk to me about The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Same with American Idol or any of those shows imitating American Idol. In fact, people actually stop discussing those things when I walk in a room. Enough said.

4. I’ve got to admit that the Olympics were hard. As was the World Cup and every other major sporting event. Everyone is always talking about sports, especially at bars where sports are always on big screen TV’s and sometimes on multiple screens, but my advice for those televsionless folks trying to maintain some sort of social connectivity during major sporting events is to simply drink more beer. That way, you will be at a bar when the television is on and can quickly catch up to speed. Another option is to take up a sport of your own so that while everyone else is sitting around drinking beer and watching sports, you can actually be out longboarding or free climbing or what have you.

5. I no longer begin sentences with the words, “I was up late last night watching…” If I happened to be up late last night, I was (1) reading, (2) writing, (3) cuddling my Dachshund who is afraid of thunderstorms or (4) cuddling my husband who is not afraid of thunderstorms. In any case, there is not nearly enough of that sort of thing happening in the world today, and now that I no longer mindlessly watch television, I have more time for all of those things.

6. Like major sporting events, the Oscars and the Emmys are a problem. Everyone is watching, and everyone is tweeting about them, and, sure, it’s a little like being back in high school, and everyone you know is talking about some party that you weren’t invited to. For advice on coping, please see #4.

7. Back when I had television, I used to spend a lot of time worrying about the what ifs. What if we have a major earthquake here in North Carolina? What if one of my friends gets a nose job that collapses? What if one of my young adult children suddenly joins a cult? What if my husband has a whole other family in another state and one day fakes his own death in order to be with them? Now, I take long walks with my Lab. I feed Vanilla Wafers to my goats. I pick wild blueberries and roses. I sit outside at a local brewery and drink Dale’s Pale Ale while I watch other people’s kids play corn hole. And somehow being outside and doing simple things makes me feel more in touch with the here and now and less concerned with the hypothetical.

8. I have taken up some new hobbies. I ride my bike — a lot. I hike. I make my own goat cheese and cream cheese, ferment my own yogurt. I grow my own kale and bake my own whey pies. I am learning about jazz and blues, and I have signed up for a poetry class and for contra dance lessons. The point is, when you are not watching television and thinking about inane things like how on earth someone could give birth nineteen times and still be walking around or how a human being could not notice she had a cat carcass rotting on her living room floor, your world opens up a bit, and suddenly you realize that even if you don’t want to make your own yogurt or pen your own chapbook, maybe, just maybe, there is something else out there for you to discover.

12 Speedy Breakfasts for Busy School Day Mornings

I’m trying to be brave today. I’m not very good at brave when it comes to my children and growing up.

ER visits? Gnarly splinters? Friendship woes? Anything involving blood? I’m your gal.

Outgrowing a newborn onesie? First day of kindergarten? Graduation? You’ll find me I’m in a puddle of tears, handing the parenting reins to my husband.

Which brings me back to being brave. My middle daughter Rosie started high school today. A brand new school with a fresh set of peers. She donned a uniform for the first time and traveled by city bus packed with commuters. She’ll be taking classes alongside boys who look like men. She’ll read The Odyssey, for God’s sake.

She’ll be OK, I tell myself. She’s so capable.

Already she’s taking care of things, starting with breakfast. Worried about her early departure, she asked me for breakfast ideas. Ones she can make the night before or are quicker in the morning than poached eggs.

I embraced her request with the enthusiasm of a first grader asked to take attendance.

This I could do. I couldn’t keep Rosie from growing up at what feels like warp speed, but I could tackle the question of breakfast.

So this is for Rosie on especially busy mornings. The aim is to get some protein into her along with whole grains or wholesome carbs and healthy fats. Some of these meals are made the night before, others take a minute or two in the morning, several can be taken on the road and all are easy enough for older kids to handle on their own.

12 Speedy Breakfasts for Busy School Day Mornings

1. Overnight Oatmeal. In a glass jar, combine a scant 1/2 cup rolled oats and a generous 1/2 cup milk and stir. Add any dried fruits, nuts, cinnamon, maple syrup, etc., you like. Leave overnight in the fridge. In the morning, heat in the microwave for 1 minute. It’s not as creamy as regular oatmeal, but still tasty and satisfying.

2. Breakfast Quesadilla. Stock the fridge with pre-grated cheese, pre-washed spinach/baby kale and whole grain tortillas. Cover a tortilla with greens, sprinkle cheese on top, and zap in the microwave until melted. Roll up and go.

3. Three-Ingredient Smoothie. Combine 1/2 cup plain kefir, 1/2 frozen banana and 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries or chopped fruit in a blender and run until smooth. Sweeten with 1 to 2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup if desired. Scale up for bigger appetites. Take in a to-go cup if needed.

4. Open-Faced Waffle. Stock whole grain waffles (Nature’s Path, Kashi and Van’s are better options). Toast a waffle and spread with nut or seed butter. Eat it bare naked or add favorite fruits.

5. Hard-Boiled Egg. Make these the night before and peel ahead of time to make mornings faster. Here’s how: cover an egg (or several eggs) with water in a small saucepan. Turn the heat to high. Once the water boils, let it boil for one minute. Turn off heat and leave for 10 minutes. Transfer to the fridge until ready to use. For breakfast, pair with a piece of fruit and slice of toast.

6. To-Go Yogurt Parfait. Make this the night before and keep in the fridge. Spoon one cup plain yogurt into a small container with a lid. Top with a spoonful of honey or jam, any favorite fruit and granola or chopped nuts. Pop on the lid and take it to go.

7. Chocolate Breakfast Drink. Chocolate for breakfast? Yes. It’s better and better for you than powdered mix any day. Blend together one cup milk, one tablespoon cocoa powder, one and a half tablespoons peanut butter, one tablespoon honey and five small ice cubes. Whirl and down the hatch. DELICIOUS.

8. Granola Bar and a Glass of Milk. A good quality granola bar and a glass of milk isn’t a bad bet for a busy morning. You’ll find a few granola bar recipes here and tips for buying a better bar here.

9. Avocado Bagel Smash. Top 1/2 toasted whole grain bagel with  1/2 small ripe avocado. Add a pinch of salt. If time permits, top with sliced hard boiled egg or grab a cheese stick for protein.

http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.
