Blog: Fast Food workers to rally against 'wage theft'

Blog: Fast Food workers to rally against 'wage theft':



 "The lawsuits filed in California, Michigan and New York against McDonald's detail a variety of "wage theft" allegations. In Michigan, for example, workers said they were made to wait before clocking in for their shifts so restaurants could maintain a target ratio of labor costs as a percentage of revenue. The suit describes a detailed monitoring system by McDonald's Corp. that closely tracks such metrics at its more than 14,000 restaurants in the U.S."

 "“We have tracked the industry since our preceding trade association was first founded in 1862, and there’s a story in these numbers. Beer is constantly evolving in the U.S., with more small brewers than ever before, more brands being introduced by national brewers and growing interest in imports,” said Chris Thorne, vice president of communications at the Beer Institute."

Michael Pollan Explains What's Wrong With the Paleo Diet | Mother Jones:



 ""I don't think we really understand…well the proportions in the ancient diet," argues Pollan on the latest episode of the Inquiring Minds podcast. "Most people who tell you with great confidence that this is what our ancestors ate—I think they're kind of blowing smoke.""

Bon Appetit – Anchovy

Bon Appetit – Anchovy (GREEN PORNO Season 3)

 Isabella Rossellini takes a closer look at the life of an anchovy.




. . . curious i've decided to catch a few episodes of  Sundance Channel: Green Porno. it stars Isabella Rossellini in costumes, re-enacting the reproductive rituals of various animals.
 episodes are of three or four minutes duration.

what's not to like? Isabella, Sex, just as i like it, in under 5 minutes . . .?

it just so happens that the first episode i watch concerns my favorite pizza topping: Anchovies. 

ruined, ruined, i've been ruined!

it turns out that the harvesting of anchovies in open sea is cutting into the food supply of Penguins and walruses and contributes to their possible extinction.

what to do? what to do? aaaaarrrrrgggghhh! no more anchovies!

darn.

Risk to Food Safety Seen in Furloughs - NYTimes.com:

 "At the Food and Drug Administration, which is responsible for inspecting the bulk of food that Americans eat, the agency has gone from a goal of inspecting about 200 plants per week to none and has reduced inspections of imported food. At the Agriculture Department, a meat and poultry hot line that consumers can call for information about food safety or to report problems is closed. At the C.D.C., about 68 percent of staff members were furloughed, including several epidemiologists and dozens of other workers who oversee a database that tracks food-borne illness."
