The Not So Innocent Spice?
NPR on nutmeg. Who wouldn’t be intrigued by that title? And a fun story to boot.. on colonial trading of spices and turf (Manhattan), nutmeg benders and more.

What's more efficient-cooking dried beans or buying canned? →

After some gas bills have left us wondering whether it’d just be more efficient to cook canned beans, some googling yielded several cost comparisons that confirmed some of our ideas taht a crockpot, rather than our gas stove could help us continue using the tastier, healthier, lighter (IE less fossil fuel to transport), cheaper dried beans, without turning on the flame and turning up our gas bill.

Good lord!

climateadaptation:

Agricultural analyst from JP Morgan states the US will have to turn to importing food from Brazil, possibly Russia. My jaw dropped when she hinted that energy policy is partly to blame, where 40% of corn goes to ethanol production for petrol (though, my understanding is that corn grown for ethanol is not for human consumption. Anyone?).

"This is a song I always tell a very long story about at the beginning because I want to make sure that the one person who’s in the crowd who is actually experiencing the story at that exact moment knows that I have got your back. It’s hard for me to imagine that there’s anyone who hasn’t experienced that crushing loss of waking up one morning and having this brief moment where you’re thinking, ‘Oh, I’m waking up, it’s nice, I slept, I’m waking up, the light is coming through the window, it’s all right…oh fuck. I broke up with the person I love yesterday.’ And then suddenly, it’s really this amazing, cinematic thing where the darkness floods in from the corners of your eyes, and if you’re a big ol’ drama queen like me, you just start crying immediately….It sounds funny when you’re talking about it, but if you’re down in it, it’s like, seriously, you think nothing could be worse. If they’d cut off both my arms, I’d rather them do that than for me to feel this feeling that so-and-so is gone, and isn’t coming back, and it’s so horrible, and so whoever you are that’s suffering, I wrote this song for you. It’s called Woke Up New."

I agree completely. They should add a term for overuse of emoticons.
boston:

The overuse of exclamation points! 
- E-mails and text messages have pushed the exclamation epidemic to a dire point. There’s now a name for it – the very unpleasant slang “bangorrhea.”
