Shutdown Threatens Homelessness, Hunger For Poor Americans Using Safety Net

WASHINGTON (AP) — Doris Cochran, a disabled mother of two young boys, is stockpiling canned foods these days, filling her shelves with noodle soup, green beans, peaches and pears — anything that can last for months or even years. Her pantry looks as though she’s preparing for a winter storm. But she’s just trying to make sure her family won’t go hungry if her food stamps run out.

Protein, Protein: The bioeconomy’s latest technology fad is, actually, a pivot back to an ancient and enduring concern

In the bioeconomy, the grass is always greener on the other side of a corporate repositioning, and we’ve seen the product and feedstocks fads roll onto the shoreline with numbing regularity.

We had greenfields until there were bolt-ons, gene transformation until there was CRISPR. We had plastics until there was nylon, and fatty acids un...

Current Obsessions: Lucky Streak

Green has been the focus of our Living Color issue this week (“darkest green functions like a neutral—it’s a black for people who don’t want black—and it hasn’t, in its favor, gained the cult status of blue,” Meredith writes in 10 Favorite, Time-Tested Dark Green Kitchens). As the week wraps up we’re taking one last look at the Emerald Isle, plus a can’t-miss sale, a long-awaited service from Ikea, and a couple of cookbooks.
