Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest What started out as a nice family meal out at one of our favorite fried chicken stops, turned into a conversation that had me boiling like the oil that cooked our supper that night.My 6th grade daughter began telling us about her day. Part of her studies for this quarter included a health class. I have to admit as a protective father the thought of what she might learn in health class scares me just a tad, but never in my wildest imagination did I think she would learn something like what she was about to tell me.Her health teacher loaded up a video that was called “Food, Inc.”! My heart literally stopped for a second, although that might have been a bit of the fried chicken’s fault too, but that’s beside the point.She went on to tell me, muffled by a chicken leg between her teeth, that many of the girls after class said that they would never eat meat again and felt so bad for the animals in the film. I was appalled and wrote this letter to the health teacher and the school principal.Good Afternoon,Over dinner last night, my daughter brought up that her health class curriculum included viewing the “documentary” “Food, Inc.”As a member of Ohio’s agriculture community and a very proud grandson of a farmer, I was disheartened to hear that this misleading, propaganda-filled movie was part of a health class curriculum. I was hoping for some insights on why this anti-agriculture biased film was part of a health class? Is it the intention of the local schools to teach kids that all of America’s hard working farmers are bad and that animal proteins are not healthy?These 6th grade students are very impressionable and I am in complete disagreement that such a movie is part of any class, unless there were an opportunity for actual farmers to share what really happens on family farms, which make up 97% of farms in this country and just how safe and healthy animal protein is to consume. I can arrange that if you would like.I feel that if we are teaching our children to come to conclusions about certain societal issues, they should hear both sides of the argument.I truly value the education that my daughter receives and I thank you both for the time you spend with her and all of your students. My only concern is about showing them documentaries that are one-sided and agenda-driven against something that is so important for people in my world and the world as a whole.I look forward to your response and I thank you for your time,Sincerely,TyThe first response I got was from the teacher, who wrote:By no means was this meant to be that at all. We talk about how the companies place things into our foods without us even knowing it… We looked at it from the food safety side, as well as what it means when things are organic products (grass fed; no antibiotics, and hormone free)… Totally agree — We talk about what the corporations have done to the farming industry and all the power they have; in fact we talked about in the video where the natural farmer raises his on all grass and not corn and the differences between the two.By no means was this a push for me to say that farming is bad. I was raised in eastern central Ohio in a rural community and support farming 100 percent. Appreciate all the hard working farming communities. I would love to have someone speak to our health classes… If you or someone you know would come and speak to our kiddos as that would be great!And I responded back:Our food safety system is one of the (if not the) safest in the world. With a huge urban population (only 1.5% of our society is farmers) that is not a small feat. Although I think there is room for all types of agriculture, including grass fed and organic, these methods are not sustainable with the amount of food needed. No meat that is sold in stores has antibiotics. Antibiotics are used to keep in livestock to keep them healthy, but there is a period before production that an animal is taken off the antibiotics. As for labels, I think that today’s labels are made simply for marketing and that should be part of your curriculum as well, i.e. “hormone-free” pork or poultry (hormones are never used in these animals).Then I got a phone call from the principal. Before he called me, he watched a few clips of “Food, Inc.” on YouTube and he sounded just as upset as I was about this type of film being shown inside the walls of his school.He assured me that he realized this video was not meant for teaching students about food, but for scaring them into not eating it. He was by no means a part of agriculture, he admitted, but a generation or two before him were farmers and he knew the importance of telling ag’s side of the story.That is exactly what will be happening from now on at this particular middle school. He has already contacted me since to see if I knew of some local farmers that would want to stop by to share what they do every day to keep our community, our nation and our world fed.Just so happens, I know a few of them.
For all of the excitement generated by the wide range of Web-based business collaboration tools out there, you’d think most companies would be touting the revolutionary effects that these products have had. Instead, most companies are seeing very few, if any, benefits from online collaboration software, at least according to a new report by Forrester. Of the survey’s respondents, 64% said they saw anywhere from zero to four benefits after implementing collaboration software. Those benefits do appear to increase, however, as companies invest in more such tools. In other words, deploying a robust suite of collaboration tools leads to greater efficiency and faster time-to-market for product launches. It also helps to integrate them directly into existing product development processes and the workflows people are already using.

At around 2.30 a.m. on November 27, after hectic week-long confabulations where Ravi Gaekwad, Satyajit Gaekwad, Chintan Vohra, Mehul Shah and Harshad Mehta tried desperately to hammer out a deal to save the Kochi IPL franchise, all five finally veered towards some sort of an understanding. The five, who had,At around 2.30 a.m. on November 27, after hectic week-long confabulations where Ravi Gaekwad, Satyajit Gaekwad, Chintan Vohra, Mehul Shah and Harshad Mehta tried desperately to hammer out a deal to save the Kochi IPL franchise, all five finally veered towards some sort of an understanding. The five, who had met repeatedly over the previous seven days at Rendezvous Sports World’s Worli office and Anchor Earth’s office on Hughes Road in Mumbai, decided to embark on the last pit stop of what was a gruelling journey. They drove towards Juhu where another key investor, Mukesh Patel of Parinee Developers, lives. Finally at close to 4.37 a.m., Patel was on board and the franchise had been saved after much persuasion from the Gaekwads. Despite a late protest from Shailendra Gaekwad, who was opposed to the idea of diluting the Rendezvous equity, they finally agreed to agree.IPL Kochi ShareholdersSpeaking to INDIA TODAY, Satyajit said, “The past is behind us. Earlier we were consortium partners, but now we are a family.” That is just about all he is saying. So are other members of the ‘family’ who seemed bound by Omerta, the code of silence. Anchor Earth promoter Mehul Shah was equally reticent when he said that the consortium members have decided not to speak on the issue while another partner, Vivek Venugopal, was perfunctory when he said that “everything was on track.”When the original bid was devised, it was agreed that the Gaekwads-Satyajit, Shailendra and Ravi (Shailendra and Ravi are brothers while Satyajit is a distant relative) – or Rendezvous Sports World, in whose name the title rights were vested, would get free equity of 25 per cent and pay only for 1 per cent at Rs 1.33 crore. What is not widely known is that the 26 per cent equity was broken up in this manner-the Gaekwads were to get only 10 per cent of this (10 per cent free plus one paid) and Sunanda Pushkar, who later married Shashi Tharoor, was to get 5 per cent as sweat equity towards her contribution in bringing MNC sponsors for the franchise. Another 10 per cent was reserved for the brand ambassador (this was for an important person who would add value to the brand).advertisementTharoor with SunandaI have no plans to associate myself with IPL Kochi in the future. I’ll keep my distance and support them from outside.- Shashi Tharoor, IPL Kochi brand ambassadorTharoor, who is probably the most aggrieved of all the parties associated with this venture because he lost his job, says, “I have no plans to associate with them in the future, other than watch matches played by the Kochi team. I am happy that a compromise was reached between the warring factions. This is great news for all the young Keralites who are enthused by the fact that they now have an IPL team. I am going to keep my distance and support them from the outside.”Speculation has been rife in the past that the job of brand ambassador was reserved for Sunil Gavaskar. Sources close to the franchise said that Kochi was initially keen on Gavaskar as a crucial member of the advisory board to give specific inputs on cricket. This plan may be revived now that the problems have been resolved. Gavaskar is friends with both sides. The earlier arrangement was to have the Gaekwads in lead position in the unregistered joint venture where they paid all the expenses leading up to the bid.Once the discredited Lalit Modi tweeted and outed Pushkar’s name, there was a furore. The fracas died down with the BCCI deciding that Kochi will stay on as a franchise in Season 4. But in the interim, the paid investors led by Mehul Shah, Chintan Vohra and Harshad Mehta and company decided to flex their muscles. The pushing and pulling created intractable differences. At the centre of the conflict was the free equity given to the Gaekwads. By pressuring the Gaekwads to bring down their equity from 26 to 10 per cent, the biggest beneficiary is Venugopal, whose stake has risen from 1 to 5 per cent. Similarly, Shah’s Anchor is now the single largest shareholder with 31.4 per cent (up 4.4 per cent), while Patel has increased his stake by 4.6 per cent.Suddenly, there was a volte face by the paid investors who wanted to grab the reins. The pressure game mounted as they argued for the paring of the free equity component. The Gaekwads also played hardball, refusing to back down. They even floated a trial balloon, saying that they were willing to bring in additional investment and would be willing to pay for some of their free equity at the rate of Rs 1.33 crore per percentage share. The paid investors rejected this notion outright as they didn’t want any new investor to join this band of brothers.advertisementAll this happened despite Shah’s faction sending a legitimate letter of termination to the BCCI. The reason why the BCCI gave the franchise another opportunity was because its legal rights were vested in Rendezvous Sports World. Over those seven days, the Gaekwads forsake control of the franchise by building a new entity, Kochi Cricket Pvt Ltd, which has all six partners as board directors.Investors and their stakes in IPL Kochi Season 4It is still not clear who will represent the Gaekwads on the board: it could be either Shailendra or Satyajit, and this decision will be taken by the board meeting this weekend. The board will now take all decisions and committees have already been formed to independently look after marketing, branding and cricketing, which is believed to be with the Gaekwads.The loose confederation had also prepared the tentpoles by registering the new entity, Kochi Cricket Pvt Ltd.How does the new arrangement work? The new working relationship has the paid investor lot coughing up for the entire 26 per cent that was once owned by the Gaekwads or Rendezvous. They have paid for this equity at the rate of Rs 1.33 crore to the authorised share capital of the company. Based on this principle, the investors have paid Rs 133 crore as the authorised share capital of the new company.Patel sums up the situation by taking recourse to God and fate, “Every human commits mistakes and if a man does not commit a mistake, God makes him commit a mistake so that he can correct himself. Everyone had his own understanding of issues.” Brave words for an outfit that was teetering on the precipice.
A Japanese university is planning what it says will be the world’s first research centre devoted to ninja — the black clad assassins known for secrecy and stealth.While mostly confined to history books and fiction, ninja have been enjoying something of a resurgence as Japanese authorities increasingly deploy them to promote tourism ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.Now, Mie University in central Japan — the region considered the home of the feudal martial arts masters — has announced that a ninja research facility will be established in July.It plans to compile a database of ninja and encourage cooperation between scholars from different disciplines who study ninja, according to Yuji Yamada, a professor of Japanese history at the university.”We’ll conduct research on ancient documents and collaborate with science researchers to be able to apply the wisdom of ninja to modern society,” Yamada, who is setting up the centre, told AFP on Thursday.”For instance, ninja burnt Japanese incense before going out to avoid evil things.”We assume the incense could boost concentration and thus ninja could avoid injuries,” he said, adding that research on such fragrances might prove useful in today’s world.The facility will be located in Iga — 350 kilometres (220 miles) southwest of Tokyo — a mountain-shrouded city that was once home to many ninja.Yamada also said that the centre plans to publish its research in English and well as Japanese so as to make it accessible for interested researchers and fans overseas.Amid the ongoing ninja boom, Aichi prefecture last year began hiring full-time ninja, including a foreigner, to promote tourism in the area known for historic Nagoya castle.In 2015, governors and mayors from prefectures around the country traded their usual suits for ninja costumes to announce the launch of a “ninja council”.
CNN/Via NPRAnthony Bourdain travels in Salvador, Brazil, for CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown in 2014.Anthony Bourdain’s Twitter profile just says, “Enthusiast.”The chef, food writer, Parts Unknown host, Top Chef judge — the enthusiast — has died from an apparent suicide. He was 61.Many of us were introduced to Bourdain through his book about the restaurant world, Kitchen Confidential. Here, he wrote about the intensity, the tempers, the swearing, the drugs — and built much of the image we now have of restaurant kitchens as dens of iniquity that somehow produce something divine. But his own kitchens ceased to be his focus long ago. Unlike a lot of other people who might be called “celebrity chefs,” Bourdain didn’t primarily care about the food he made, but instead about the food he ate.He was, particularly on his TV shows, infinitely curious, literally hungry for everything. He loved restaurants that would look like nothing special to people accustomed to fuss. He believed passionately in street food sold from stalls around the world, not because he fetishized authenticity as a status marker, but because he saw it as a chance to learn about a place through how it feeds its people. And he believed that you learn the most from the people who make food that other people actually want to eat day in and day out, not just on special occasions. What is more personal than what people put in their bellies? What is more profound than what they share with one another, what they spear with a fork and move to a plate? What — truly, what — tells us more about ourselves than the things we choose to, day after day, slide down our gullets?So Bourdain didn’t focus on standing in a sterile kitchen telling you how to make your own guacamole or how to produce a passable pho at home. He had a food show on the Travel Channel. Then he had one on CNN. Both homes, then unusual for food television, made all the sense in the world. He was open about the fact that he mostly had a TV show so he could travel all over the world and meet people and eat. If he seemed to be profoundly driven about anything, it was not building the most restaurants. It was understanding more of the world each year than he had the year before. And he never suggested pity for the people he visited, no matter what their circumstances. He wasn’t there to suggest that a place, even one where the people were accustomed to being seen through the lens of their struggles, needed the touch of your benevolent hand as much as that it deserved your respect.As for CNN, is there anything more profoundly connected to the news than our increasingly tenuous grasp on our ability to coexist? Is there anything more crucial than a counterweight that shows you a place — how many amazing things it has that you have never tried, how many amazing people it has whom you have never met — and asks you to see it as round instead of flat?Bourdain should not be confused, though, with some dulcet-toned host-bot, constantly awash in wonder. He could also be hilariously cutting, particularly when he became a judge on Top Chef — one of the best, in fact. He was creative and funny, once saying a particularly problematic lobster had the texture of “doll head.” Let’s be honest: That doesn’t even really mean anything. But it’s still perfect. You have never tasted a doll head, and yet you somehow know what waxy, unsettling, inanimate plasticity he was going for.“Enthusiast.” Yes, exactly. In the way that enthusiasm is best understood not as bland and undiscerning rah-rah pump of the fist, but as undiluted appetite. To see more, do more, talk more, learn more, eat more, walk more, set foot on more acres of ground, float on more stretches of water.Anthony Bourdain, like Roger Ebert before him, had simply grown into one of my guides. Not a moral guide like Jiminy Cricket — he would have been the first to recommend against seeing him that way — but a guide to being, as to paraphrase John Muir, in the world rather than just on it.Bourdain began his writing career as a commentator in The New Yorker explaining that restaurant kitchens were bloody and merciless, chefs were judgmental and vain, everyone was on drugs, and you should not kid yourself about it. It looked, at that time, like his legacy would be rock star-like, maybe even (ugh) bad boy-like, ascending to a throne of faux-daring that was all about shock. He was a wonderful writer, evocative and specific and fearless, and if he had wanted to write about restaurant underbellies forever, he could have been that guy.This turned out to be not the case at all. He will be remembered for his curiosity — and curiosity is hopeful. To be an enthusiast is to believe that you will duck around the next corner and find a place where you’ve never had anything like the bowl of noodles they’re going to make for you. To be an explorer, always, without hesitation, is the opposite of cynicism. It’s the opposite of surrender to all the blood and innards and, to quote one of his book titles, the nasty bits. To wander is to believe in the expansive worth of the world you live in and to have faith that you have not run out of people to meet or places to visit.I will miss this deceptively optimistic outlook, among other things. Bourdain may have had a snarl, a cutting tongue and closets full of demons he was often fairly open about. But he treated the world as if he had not given up on it. He treated it as if, at any moment, it might open itself wider, reveal a crack into which he hadn’t ever slipped, with pen and paper, with a flashlight and a fork. And he might be able to help other people understand what was inside.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Share
00:00 /00:47 Share Elizabeth Trovall/Houston Public MediaVietnamese-Americans in Houston learn how to register voters at a Harris County deputy voter registrar training.Harris County is offering volunteer deputy voter registrar training in Vietnamese and Chinese for the first time ever. More than 25 people attended the first training in Vietnamese this week to become certified to register voters in the county. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Those deputy registrars will be able to register voters for the upcoming elections on November 5. “We have a large Vietnamese community and there’s a lot of language barriers. To be able to have it in Vietnamese, really helps a great deal to really understand the importance of voter registration,” said Janette Diep, executive director of the Vietnamese-American non-profit Boat People SOS, which hosted the training.Houston has one of the largest Vietnamese populations in the country, with some 91,000 people. Elizabeth Trovall/Houston Public MediaVolunteer deputy voter registrar training is now offered in Chinese and Vietnamese.Diep said she’s seen how language barriers can get in the way of voter registration. “A lot of times they [Vietnamese-Americans] get the card in English and they’re afraid to fill it out because it might be incorrect and then they don’t submit it. With this, when you have someone to assist you and to also hand it in to the registrar’s office, means this person’s going to be registered and they’re going to get a voter card,” said Diep. The push for training sessions in Vietnamese and Chinese came, in part, from the civic engagement group Houston in Action. “Earlier this year, Houston in Action members, as part of our Take Action Houston report, identified a gap in training opportunities for non-English speaking volunteer deputy voter registrars,” said Frances Valdez in a written statement.“Members of the Empowering Constituencies Initiative helped bring voter registration opportunities to Harris County’s Vietnamese and Chinese speaking communities, communities who have the right to vote, but who have, historically, not had the same access as others,” she said.Community organizer AJ Durani, said the next step is to have registrars start registering voters ahead of the next election. “We will take volunteer deputy voter registrars and identify locations where community members gather and register voters on a regular basis,” said Durani, who is chairman of civic engagement group eMgage. He said he believes this could be the first-ever voter registrar training in Vietnamese in the state. X
Kolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has convened a high-level meeting on June 19 with senior officials of the Centre and the state government as part of the anti-larvae drive.The meeting will be attended by senior officials of Metro Railway, Eastern Railway, BSNL, Kolkata Port Trust, Satyajit Roy Film and Television Institute, state Public Works department. Senior KMC officials of the health department will also be present at the meeting. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe civic authorities will discuss in detail the steps taken by these agencies to keep their establishments clean. Senior KMC officials said drives have been conducted in Central and state government establishments, hospitals and educational institutions along with private housing complexes and individual residential buildings to see whether the garbage had been cleared or not or whether the accumulated water has been cleaned. But these drives are not enough and to make anti-larvae campaigns successful, cooperation between the state and Central government establishments are an absolute necessity. The civic officials said used plastic tea cups and bottles, broken furniture kept on rooftops and empty cans serve as potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes. The larvae take seven days to grow into adults and so if drives are conducted twice a week, the mosquito population can easily be checked. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedIt may be mentioned that the KMC has been conducting anti-larvae drives from January as the breeding pattern of the mosquitoes has changed due to global warming. The state Urban Development department has given Rs 4 crore to the KMC to conduct intense campaigns against malaria and dengue.Debashis Biswas, Chief Vector Control Officer of the KMC, said: “Cooperation of people from all walks of life is needed. If the masses and KMC will work hand-in-hand, the number of malaria and dengue cases will fall drastically.”
