Sweet Potato Black Bean Burger. Some days, you just need a burger.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burger

If today is one of those days, I’m here for you. This burger was inspired by my favorite veggie burger in Kansas City found at Beer Kitchen – the amazing restaurant that inspired this Whiskey BBQ Ketchup. Their “black bean burger” had a modest description but the flavor and texture are anything but. It’s tender without being mushy, not too sweet, not too salty, hearty and seriously satisfying. On days that nothing sounded filling enough, this veggie burger was the only thing that did the trick.

This recipe not only fills a veggie burger-shaped hole in my heart since moving out of arm’s reach of Beer Kitchen, it’s also simple, requiring just 10 ingredients and easy-to-master methods.

Sometimes I wonder if all of the modern ailments, which seem ever more numerous as the years pass, are really just the result of adopting chemicals as a regular component in nearly every part of our lives.

Not Getting Burned Anymore - The Permaculture Research Institute

Can it be that simple? The sudden outbreak of peanut allergies, the increase in chronic diseases, the fact that cancer now seems more the expectation than unpredictable tragedy—have we just become more aware of them, or are these things really becoming more and more the status quo? What I know for sure is that chemical interference has decimated other natural systems, and with so many examples at our disposal, it seems completely reasonable to think they’ve done the same for us. In fact, much like with biocides, the immediate results often seem great: If we put on sunscreen, we don’t get burned, and of course, that means less risk of skin cancer.

However, as time passes, as we further expose our systems to the chemicals that are “helping” us, the worse and worse the results become. 3585.

Huxley Vs Orwell: Infinite Distraction Or Government Oppression?

When I read this comic, I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes from Brave New World: “It’s curious,” he went on after a little pause, “to read what people in the time of Our Ford used to write about scientific progress. They seemed to have imagined that it could be allowed to go on indefinitely, regardless of everything else. Knowledge was the highest good, truth the supreme value; all the rest was secondary and subordinate.

Durango Public Library has $30k in unpaid late fees for town of 17k

But it appears some book loves checking out books from one Colorado library are loving them so much they're racking up a lot of late fees. Durango Public Library Director Sandy Irwin says more than 400,000 items are checked out each year, but people aren't bringing them back on time. "We have over 10,000 people that have fines right now. Those might range from 10 cents to $800," Irwin said. The fines total almost $30,000 – money the library could be using to build its collection. "Let's say $15 per item. Australia—riding on the insect's back. As you may have spotted, the title of this article is a cheeky reference to the famous saying that Australia rides on the back of a particular woolly ruminant.

Australia—riding on the insect's back

The reference dates back to 1894, when the wool industry was one of the primary sources of Australia's prosperity. Wool was our main export commodity from 1871 to the 1960s. For more than a century, the golden fleece drew pastoral workers and professionals to regional Australia, and sustained many a country town. It is likely that most people would consider the native birds and animals in the farm shelterbelt to be the main source of agricultural biodiversity. However, the most diverse and important biodiversity is much smaller. Looking beneath the farmer's feet we would find countless insects and other invertebrates living out their lives, and in so doing providing services that we take freely and for granted.
