Food security News, Research and Analysis - The Conversation Division between the have and have nots is likely to widen – and food is one area where many will go without. Climate change is affecting all regions of the globe. But some places, such as Africa, are more vulnerable than others. With most of the world's potential farmland already in use, it may be time to start foraging. Etymologically Speaking... From the old Arabic word "hashshshin," which meant, "someone who is addicted to hash," that is, marijuana. Originally refered to a group of warriors who would smoke up before battle. Aaron White adds: You may want to explore the fact that the hashshshins were somewhat of a voodoo-ized grand conspiracy scapegoat cult (the very fact of their existence is impossible to confirm).

Sustainable food supply chains: what we can learn from Greece and Ethiopia Poverty is definitely not some bucolic ideal that we should romanticise. It is ugly, brutal and should be fought against. But there are lessons from the poor that we, in affluent (and frequently complacent) urban Australia, appear to have forgotten. It might do us well to re-learn some of them. When asked last week to consider my views on the so-called “potato revolution” in Greece, the first thing that came to my mind was how sad it is that it takes financial hardship and deprivation to point people back to sensible, rational and sustainable approaches to food and their communities.
