The Secrets Behind Your Flowers. In 1967 David Cheever, a graduate student in horticulture at Colorado State University, wrote a term paper titled “Bogotá, Colombia as a Cut-Flower Exporter for World Markets.”
The paper suggested that the savanna near Colombia’s capital was an ideal place to grow flowers to sell in the United States. The savanna is a high plain fanning out from the Andean foothills, about 8,700 feet above sea level and 320 miles north of the Equator, and close to both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

Inhabitat - Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building. FUdiet: The Science of Weight Loss, Nutrition, and Fitness. One piece of diet advice I dole out on a regular basis is, “if you love to eat, don’t drink your calories!”
The reason I discourage people from drinking calories is because beverage calories tend to be easier to give up and some people consume so many calories from soda that if they cut back, they could probably eat more food and still save calories. I have actually seen patients with a 2+ a day soda habit lose 5-10 pounds from making the one simple change of kicking the soda habit. Sugar-sweetened beverages which include sodas, fruit drinks, and other soft drinks have no nutritional value. Even the vitamins in juice are not worth the calories, especially when sugar or high-fructose corn syrup is added. Even 100% juice is rarely the healthiest source of vitamins given that you can get 100% of your daily vitamin C from a supplement and save about 200 calories.
One measure put forth to reduce intake of sodas is to tax them. Puerto Rico Considers “Fat” Tax on Obese Children: A Fight for Children’s Health or a Tax Collection Scheme? It seems that the Puerto Rico government is scrambling to find ways to collect tax revenues to satisfy its debt obligations.
Why? Well there is a new controversial “Fat” tax bill filed by Puerto Rican Senator Gilberto Rodriguez to combat child obesity. The plan calls for school teachers to identify and locate obese children and refer them to the Puerto Rico health department officials. Then they will determine what is the cause of the child’s obesity problem and formulate a diet and exercise plan. Then they will monitor the child’s progress every four weeks. America Revealed. Over the past century, an American industrial revolution has given rise to the biggest, most productive food machine the world has ever known.
In this episode, host Yul Kwon explores how this machine feeds nearly 300 million Americans every day. He discovers engineering marvels we’ve created by putting nature to work and takes a look at the costs of our insatiable appetite on our health and environment. For the first time in human history, less than 2% of the population can feed the other 98%.
