American Wasteland: How
Don’t you hate it when you forget about fruits, veggies or milk and they go bad in the fridge? Or the days you order too much food and throw some away? You’re not alone. According to journalist and author Jonathan Bloom, Americans throw away 100 billion pounds of food each year. In his new book, American Wasteland, Bloom calls our penchant for tossing old edibles a “food waste epidemic.” What big forces perpetuate all that waste? And what are the small ways individuals can cut back?

Bob Dylan: Nobel Laureate
Bob Dylan: folk rock icon and American institution... and now a Nobel Laureate. The Nobel Literature Laureate was announced this morning and musician Bob Dylan will add to his lifetime of accomplishments by placing a Nobel Prize on his mantle. Dylan, born Robert Zimmerman in 1941, won for a lifetime of artistic achievements, including the first of a planned 3-part memoir, Chronicles, Volume One, published in 2004. Although the Nobel Committee never announces the names of writers under consideration, speculation for Dylan’s win ran wild on Ladbrokes, a British-based gambling company, leading up to Thursday’s announcement. Dylan edged out numerous other renowned and bestselling writers including Michael Ondaatje (The English Patient), Ian McEwan (Atonement), Umberto Eco (The Name of the Rose), and 78-year old Korean poet Ko Un, who has spent time in prison for his work. And now the man who once wrote “Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen, and keep your eyes wide, the chance won’t come again, and don’ speak too soon for the wheel’s still in spin, and there’s no tellin’ who that it’s naming, for the loser now will be later to win” will now have his name mentioned in the company of Steinbeck, Hemmingway, Churchill and Faulkner.
