FROM Paul Greenberg
Shrimp in America Paul Greenberg, author of American Catch , returns to Good Food this week to talk about shrimp, which is by far the most popular seafood in America. But there’s a lot about our shrimping history that you probably don’t know.
Why Do We Import Our Seafood? Paul Greenberg is the author of American Catch, a book that uncovers “the tragic unraveling of the nation’s seafood supply—telling the surprising story of why Americans stopped eating from their own waters.” He recently wrote an op-ed for the New York Times on the same topic.
The Great American Fish Swap 91% percent of the seafood Americans consume is imported, while a third of what’s caught in American waters is shipped to other countries. Somehow, that doesn’t seem to make sense. What does the great American fish swap mean for health and wellbeing? Paul Greenberg's latest book is American Catch : The Fight for Our Local Seafood.
George Saunders: Lincoln in the Bardo (Part I) Lincoln in the Bardo dramatizes a grieving President Lincoln as he visits the grave of his beloved son Willie, who died at age eleven. In the novel, the buried dead believe they're not dead -- "they're sick and refer to their coffins as "sick boxes."
Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
Securing Public Spaces, Super Wealthy Asians Vehicles are increasingly being used as weapons, as seen in the London Bridge attack over the weekend and in New York’s Times Square last month. The Compton-based company Calpipe is designing security bollards to help make public spaces safer. And novelist Kevin Kwan satirizes the “crazy rich” Asian jet set and their luxurious tastes in his latest book, “Rich People Problems.”
