Tabb, who grows Roundup Ready corn as well, says he didn’t find raising the older non-GMO variety much harder to grow. He said the yield from his non-GMO fields were the same as those from his GMO fields, and that his costs were the same.

Huh? I would have expected costs to be considerably lower.

A couple of Gray-chinned Minivet, Pericrocotus solaris (Passeriformes - Campephagidae), taken at DaSyueShan Trail, Taichung County, Taiwan.
This species is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Taiwan, Thailand, and Viet Nam [source].
The two birds shown are males, probably embroiled in a territorial or courtship mess. In any case they reveal their beautiful color pattern.

    High food prices cause riots, right? There’s a correlation, and that’s good enough. But not for everybody. In this episode of Eat This Podcast I talk to Marc Bellemare, an agricultural economist whose research demonstrates that there actually is a causal relationship between food prices and social unrest globally.  Also in this episode, Cullen Hendrix, a political scientist and economist who has some surprising things to say about the kinds of political regimes in which food riots are more likely.

    I have been quite silent these days. I guess just too much work is my excuse. The opposite can be said for what is happening with nutrition these days. Lots happening, little silence. What a year 2013 was, and a year 2014 is shaping up to be. The call for paying more attention to nutrition is…
