THE DAILY STAR :: News :: Middle East :: Palestinian comments land Romney in more hot water.

Asked at the fundraiser if the “Palestinian problem” can be solved, Romney replied that the Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”

Displaying little nuance about different factions in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, his remarks appeared to dismiss the possibility that any Palestinian leaders are willing to work towards peace with Israel.

“I look at the Palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway, for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel, and these thorny issues, and I say there’s just no way,” he said.

Food-justice organization Growing Power — with its now-iconic greenhouses, composting worms, fishponds, and multiple generations of graduates — is well-known as a model worth replicating. Now, Growing Power has announced a bountiful $5 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to fund “community food centers” aimed at relieving hunger in five of the nation’s poorest areas.

Modeled on Growing Power’s Milwaukee farm-headquarters, the centers will be located in Detroit; New Orleans; Forest City, Ark.; Shelby, Miss.; and Taos, N.M.

“It’s all wrapped around providing healthy, sustainable, local food to folks, especially our youth,” explains Will Allen, founder and director of Growing Power. “Many of the young people in those communities go to bed hungry every night.”

The End of the Dream by Philip Wylie – Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

The End of the Dream by Philip Wylie – Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists.

He’s correct in pointing out the many abuses still occurring that haven’t been adequately controlled, that still can develop into problems of such magnitude that everyone’s quality of life will suffer. Altho written 40 years ago, just about every problem described will be immediately recognizable as problems that still must be solved. For this reason, this book should be read, its warnings fully digested.

Where it does work is in the searing images he paints of various disasters, from a SST crashing into a NY skyscraper after a multistate power outage, to a death wave moving up 5th Avenue from a deadly concentration of noxious gases, to a golf course built over a landfill that suddenly collapses into a bubbling stew of toxic chemicals. Perhaps the sharpest, most biting image is of a sudden attack by trillions of mutated sea worms that come ashore to attack practically anything moving, with the sharp irony that the defense against these creatures is to spread oil all around the defended area, which naturally will, in time, become another eco-disaster.

Palestinian president says his government can’t pay civil servants’ full salaries this month.

The U.S. and Arab countries have failed to come through this year with the aid money they have pledged, leaving the Palestinian Authority that governs much of the West Bank in a budgetary shortfall that has contributed to rising prices and delays in the payment of government salaries.
