There’s a New-Old way of cooking and eating these days and you’ve probably heard about some of these new cooking methods and foods: sprouting grains, whole grains, locally grown produce, organic vegetables and meats, cane sugar, rapidura, spelt and more.
What is basically happening in the Food World is that folks are tired of being unhealthy, don’t want to start being unhealthy, have all kinds of allergies and sensitivities, want to be more “green” in their food preparation and purchase choices, want to be better stewards of God’s gifts, and just want a more simple way to prepare nourishing foods for themselves and their families. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – Barry Kitterman, an Austin Peay State University creative writing professor, is from the San Joaquin – a large valley in California where much of the country’s fruits and vegetables are grown. Specifically, he’s from the small town of Ivanhoe, where the air doesn’t smell of sea salt and beach bums aren’t camped out under the redwoods or on the rabbit farms.
“When I would tell people I was from California, they had a certain set of assumptions as to what that meant,” Kitterman said. “It was so far removed from my real experience that I thought I wanted to write stories about the California I grew up in, which is rural, agricultural, a long way from the ocean and, something I realized much later, very poor.”

The March Employment Report was good, but not great. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 216,000 – a 159,000 monthly pace in 1Q11 (about 130,000 would correspond to trend growth in the working-age population, and we’d rather see +300,000 per month for a couple of years to make up for the jobs lost during the recession). Private-sector payrolls rose by 230,000, up 1.5% from a year ago. State and local government shed 15,000, following a 46,000 decline in February (-282,000, or -1.4%, from a year ago). The unemployment rate edged down to 8.8%, vs. 8.9% in February and 9.8% in November. The employment-population ratio, a better measure of capacity utilization in the labor market, edged up to 58.5%, trending gradually higher in recent months, but little changed from a year ago. Average hourly earnings and average weekly earnings were flat (up 1.7% year-over-year and 2.3% year-over-year respectively – note that the Consumer Price Index rose 2.1% in the 12 months ending in February). «Read the rest of this article»
