Fevers in Children There is a curious phenomenon that goes on in science: as we study the physical world, inevitably we uncover facts that contradict old assumptions. As scientists are seekers after the truth wherever it may be found, one would expect that they would quickly revise or even discard old, unproven theories when new facts and discoveries emerge. In fact, in many cases just the opposite occurs; "the scientific community" often circles the wagons and protects its pet theories.

Farmstead Chef - Harvest Haystacks: The Ultimate Community Meal There’s nothing better than a rural road trip with a mystery dish. During our wanderings last weekend around Goshen, Ind., we visited the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale, where tried haystacks for the first time. This weekend event featured an auction and sale raising several hundred thousand dollars for the group’s international peace and justice work, but on Friday night food reigned king. Mashall King, a foodie friend and managing editor at The Elkhart Truth, helped us navigate the booths of tempting homemade food run by local Mennonite churches. The haystack food tent drew us in, as the concept was so simple yet completely new to us—the perfect meal for a large-crowd fundraiser.

Culinary Alchemy: Your Own Herb and Spice Mixtures I have many recipes calling for different types of spice mixtures in my books. Some are simple and familiar, some lavish, others find their home in ethnic cuisine. They range from classic French and Mexican to the dry toasted spices of India, Japan, and Morocco. A dash of herbs or spices, not too overwhelming, allows the cook to present a familiar dish with new tastes. They are a great salt substitute, tricking your palate with the savory accents. Great cooking comes from “people who have an innate capacity to taste and see and smell,” says Cristeta Comerford, White House Chef.

Think Like a Commoner Getting to the heart of the permaculture ethic of fair shares, David Bollier's book provides an excellent primer on the theory and practice of the commons, a bottom-up vehicle for "social and political emancipation and societal transformation." In the process he expands our imaginations to reclaim the wrongly-maligned word, 'commoner', outlining a budding revolution which most of us are already part of, whether we realise it or not. A commons, standing outside of the spheres of market and state, consists of "working, evolving models of self-provisioning and stewardship that combine the economic and the social, the collective and the personal." While many might associate discussion of the commons with historical events such as the enclosure movement, Bollier brings commons theory right into the present age. R.

Time-based currency In economics, a time-based currency is an alternative currency where the unit of exchange is the person-hour. Some time-based currencies value everyone’s contributions equally: one hour equals one service credit. In these systems, one person volunteers to work for an hour for another person; thus, they are credited with one hour, which they can redeem for an hour of service from another volunteer. Critics charge that this would lead to fewer doctors or dentists.
