I personally think that farms go unappreciated. If we did not have farms we would not have half or any of the food we have today. This interview puts a lot of things into perspective on how farms can help out our cities and improve the overall food industry.
This article was rather interesting because who would think to wonder why we name certain things? When I was reading this article I learned that we name the vegetable "squash" becasue the Narrgannsett Native Americans had the word "askutasquash" which means you can eat it raw or cooked. I did not know that this word came from the Narrgansett Native Americans.
Foods from around the world...This is a playful video clip that leads students to have more questions than answers about different places. The spirit of exploration and experimentation is at the heart of this global traveler's montage of delightful dishes. Watching this encourages viewers to open their minds to new ideas, cultures and places.
This is an interesting video because some people are extremely particular with what they eat. I like this video because it makes the viewers of the video wonder what they actually could be missing out on with all of the wonderful food they could be consuming.
"Just 200 years ago, there were only 1 billion people on the planet, and over the next 150 years, that number grew to 3 billion. But in the past 50 years, the global population has more than doubled, and the UN projects that it could possibly grow to 15 billion by the year 2100. As the international organization points out, this increasing rate of change brings with it enormous challenges."
This should definitely be a major concern for the human planet becasue if people are multiplying that quickly and staying alive longer than the futre could be facing some serious problems. For example; the food supply could run low, shelter could definitely become scarce, diease could become a high risk becuase there are so many people that are close which means they could be sharing a number of things.
At least four people are killed and dozens injured as a passenger train derails in New York City, prompting a major emergency services response.
Alison Antonelli's insight:
This is a crazy story because some people are blaming the conductor of the train on texting and driving, speed, not paying attention, or just something went wrong with the train. Four people died in this train accident and some left injured. This story is at the top of the list on the news and continues to be with all on the details unravaling.
BOGOVADJA, Serbia (Reuters) - With winter approaching, hundreds of asylum seekers from Africa and the Middle East are living in a forest in Serbia without access to basic amenities, a sign of the Balkan...
International Business Times Washington State Voters Turn Down GMO Food Labels TIME By nearly ten points, voters in Washington State rejected a ballot initiative that would have required labels on foods containing genetically-engineered ingredients.
I think that when buying any kind of food there would be everything known about the food on the lable. Consumers should know what is in there food before injesting in into their body and potentially harming themselves in case there was something their body could react to.
After reading this article, it puts some things into perspective because of how much some people may take their food for granted. There are so many undeveloped countries have such a little food to go around that the countries that have enough food should not waste it. Many people are dying due to hunger and malnutrition.. Some countries should be more aware of this hunger issue and not waste food.
This is interesting because these two maps show a significant change in the poverty levels of the United States. The top map shows the coverage of medicad in the US and the lower map clearly doesn't have as much. So many people in the US do not have healthcare that it can show via these maps.
You’re in a meeting and you ask your teammate if they can get their project done before next week. They say yes and go on to describe their plans with family who are visiting from India this week. What do you do next?
This is an awesomea article because in so many culturals yes and no can mean so many different things. I enjoyed reading this article because it has so many levels of the truth when you really think about it.

It was just over two centuries ago that the global population was 1 billion — in 1804. But better medicine and improved agriculture resulted in higher life expectancy for children, dramatically increasing the world population, especially in the West.
After watching this short clip, it puts the popluation into perspective. I never knew how quickly the populaiton could grow and this video is a pure example of how it does. Over population is going to be a major problem in the future.
The 2013 World Population Data Sheet lists all geopolitical entities with populations of 150,000 or more and all members of the UN. These include sovereign states, dependencies, overseas departments, and some territories whose status or boundaries may be undetermined or in dispute.
More developed regions, following the UN classification, comprise all of Europe and North America, plus Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.
All other regions and countries are classified as less developed.
The least developed countries consist of 49 countries with especially low incomes, high economic vulnerability, and poor human development indicators; 34 of these countries are in sub-Saharan Africa, 14 in Asia, and one in the Caribbean.
The human popluation debate will always seem to be an issue. One can almost assume that the less developed countries are going to have the highest popluation but the most problems as well. A country that is classified as less developed are most definitely going to have low incomes due to the low number of jobs available, poor human development because there isn't enough people to be taking care of each other.
