    The president will propose in his 2017 budget next month that families who qualify for subsidized school meals be given a special electronic benefits card that will allow them to buy an additional $45 in groceries per child each month when school is out. ... The USDA, states and nonprofit groups have been trying for several years now to figure out how to boost participation in a summer feeding program. They've experimented with offering free meals at camps and libraries, where children are likely to show up. And they're using food trucks to deliver meals to more remote areas. ......

    Breastfed babies are more likely to turn into well-educated and higher-earning adults, according to a major long-term study. ... It is already known that breastfeeding can increase a child’s IQ by a small amount. The question that Dr Bernardo Lessa Horta from the Federal University of Pelotas in Brazil wanted to answer was whether this translated into greater intelligence and better prospects as an adult. “Our study provides the first evidence that prolonged breastfeeding not only increases intelligence until at least the age of 30 years but also has an impact both at an individual and societal level by improving...

  • Examiner Editorial: To protect ethanol, Obama seeks to inflate meat prices

    The Washington Examiner ^ | August 14, 2012 | 8:00 pm
    To recap, government is driving up the cost of food, animal feed and gasoline, and Obama's solution is to drive up meat prices as well. Obama could eliminate the entire problem overnight and reduce carbon emissions were he to waive the ethanol mandate in a time of drought. Instead, he is creating a new spending program to mollify livestock producers, who, were it not for the ethanol mandate, would be able to make an honest living without his help.

    SUFFOLK City Manager Selena Cuffee-Glenn would get a 21 percent raise next January, bringing her salary to $183,492, under the budget she sent to City Council this week. Most department heads also would get hefty raises in a proposed overhaul of the city’s compensation system that is aimed at making salaries competitive with other localities in the region. Teachers, meanwhile, would stand to lose a proposed 2 percent raise if the city goes ahead with plans to cut $4 million from the schools’ budget request. The school division also sent layoff notices to 89 school employees this week in response...

    Nurses are having to be reminded that it is part of their job to feed frail patients and check if they have bedsores. Millions of patients suffer pressure ulcers, hip fractures following falls or malnutrition during their stay in hospital, a report by Health Service bosses said. But it added that most of these cases could be avoided. (Snip) It shows that 70 per cent of patients with malnutrition are never identified by nurses, 10 per cent suffer bedsores and there are more than 200,000 falls a year on NHS property.

    Like many toddlers, Zak Hessey was a fussy eater who refused his mother's healthy home cooking. Concerned about his falling weight, his parents sought the advice of doctors. That simple act triggered a shocking chain of events that led to the youngster being put into foster care for four months. Paul and Lisa Hessey believe in the long-term benefits of healthy eating and rejected advice to feed their two-year-old son high-calorie snack food To their horror, social workers put Zak into foster care 'to assess his needs' and allegedly threatened the couple with the loss of their parental rights if...

    An alarming new study to be published in November in the Annual Review of Environment and Resources finds that one-third of the world's marine fish catches are ground up and fed to farm-raised fish, pigs, and poultry, squandering a precious food resource for humans and disregarding the serious overfishing crisis in our oceans. Lead author Dr. Jacqueline Alder, senior author Dr. Daniel Pauly, and colleagues urge that other foods be used to feed farmed animals so that these "forage fish" can be brought to market for larger-scale human consumption. "Forage fish" include anchovies, sardines, menhaden, and other small- to medium-sized...

    The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is conducting a three-year research project into the beneficiation of biodiesel by-products, which could have economic spin-offs for rural agricultural communities. CSIR Biosciences executive director Dr Gat-sha Mazithulela tells Engineering News that the project involves investigating how biodiesel by-products can be used in animal feed and other value-added products. The Department of Science and Technology (DST) is funding the project, after a DST- driven committee on biodiesel identified the need to ensure that the contribution of by-products to the economic viability of biodiesel is maintained and improved. The committee then tasked the...

    'Desert fish will help to feed the world' By Max Benitz (Filed: 05/06/2006) Deserts will produce much of the farmed fish and the clean power of the future, a United Nations report says. Aquaculture already thrives in deserts such as the Negev in Israel and Arizona, according to the report published to mark World Environment Day. It says saline water in desert wells and sunlight can be used to mimic tropical seas, making them ideal for farming fish and shrimp. Another benefit is that fish farming uses less water than the production of a vegetable crop. Many fish and algae...

    BEND, Ore. (AP) — A mother was sentenced to five years probation because her baby ingested methamphetamine from breast milk. Kristy Meialoha Davis, 30, of Redmond is one of three women who have been charged in Deschutes County with this type of offense in recent months. Two have been sentenced to probation and a third is awaiting trial. Prosecutor Victoria Roe said at Wednesday’s sentencing that the baby’s father — who faces drug charges of his own — reported Davis to authorities in November. The baby tested positive for cocaine and methamphetamine. Roe told Judge A. Michael Adler that the...

    Anchorpersons in purgatory In the 20-odd years since I first met Chris Matthews, I have never seen him, on television or off, with his mouth shut. Until now. I am standing in the Conner Contemporary Art gallery in Washington, D.C., taking in the art installation, "Face Time." The work consists of 17 flat-panel video screens playing raw satellite feeds of various important people waiting patiently for their turn to appear on a TV news broadcast. Matthews is one of them. And even though there is no sound, I can tell he isn't talking. He's just staring into space. Silenced talking...

R-CALF stated in a release that USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has known of this problem for more than one year.

And that may explain the excitement these days over a somewhat crude but nifty software tool that automatically delivers updated information to your computer directly from your favorite Web sites. Enthusiasts see these Web feeds as sketching the outline of the next Net revolution. The technology behind them is called RSS and I rely on it daily to consult The New York Times, the BBC, CNET News, Slashdot and a few...

The invitation-only event, scheduled for 13 September, will feature dinner, magicians, games and a lorry full of stuffed animals, according to Jackson’s publicist, Stuart Backerman.

Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, in Santa Barbara County, includes an amusement park with bumper cars, a merry-go-round and a Ferris wheel. Guests also will receive a "goodie bag" worth about £600...
