Missouri River flooding catches small Nebraska town off guard

When Jim and Rose Downing heard forecasts last week for dangerously high water in their Nebraska hometown on the Missouri River, they were nonplussed since their house had not flooded in 100 years. Rose is the third generation of her family to reside in the brick home in the Gunnysack Flats neighborhood near downtown Peru, Nebraska, and 2 miles west of a levee that townspeople said never faltered in the past. This time was different, as the fewer than 1,000 residents of Peru discovered on Satu...

Nikkei cuisine and where to find it

“Nikkei” just sounds like a word people are going to use wrong. You can almost hear a half dozen people sitting around a violet-lit table in some SoHo hotspot asking stuff like, “Is the octopus tonight Nikkei? Perhaps you could go back and ask the chef.” While the waiter looks on confused another chimes in, “Kylie ONLY eats Nikkei now. It’s like sushi, but lower-carb.” “And, like, all the fish has to be flown in from Peru,” says another. “And they mix it with six different kinds of pomegranat...

The Shopping Carts Mystery

When I moved into the studio I’m renting in Santiago, I noticed several shopping carts parked by the elevator, in the lobby of the residential high-rise building. Clearly, they didn’t belong here, but I didn’t think much of it. Except that every night, the shopping carts were gone for a few hours, and they would reappear the next morning. Now, this was an intriguing mystery. In Canada, I would have assumed that people without a car were “borrowing” a cart to haul groceries back home. But this is...
