British, U.S. kids worst off in industrial world, UN says

And yet another reason 'socialist' countries fare better:

British, U.S. kids worst off in industrial world, UN says: "BERLIN — British and U.S. children are the worst off in the industrialized world, according to a UN report Wednesday that ranked the well-being of youngsters in 21 wealthy countries.

The Netherlands and Sweden rated first and second."

CoffeeFool

Found this and thought of our quests to perfect coffee....I think ullage is on to it - home roasting.

Nearly all of the coffee out there is stale. The good news is that stale coffee is drinkable if you've never had truly fresh coffee. The bad news is that once you've tasted truly fresh coffee, you'll be forever hooked. It will make you giddy every time you go to make a pot. Tingle right down to your toes. Reverberate around your head like a funky aura. That's because coffee, just a few days out of the roaster, is nature's most flavorful drink - more complex than even wine - containing well over 900 flavor compounds to dance on your taste buds. But after a few weeks, you'd be lucky to see half that number.

Peter Singer article in the NY Times

What Should a Billionaire Give – and What Should You?

Interesting article by Singer. I like his idea, of course, but I'm not sure an economist would agree it could work? Don't all the rich people make money off of their money? If they gave this much away (see the article) then they wouldn't have money to continue giving? Or, is he saying that they'd only have to do this once?...that can't be.

Some times smart people think they can fix problems just by doing a little thinking on their own without consulting other "experts" on the subject....I hope that's not the case with this one.

See what you think.

Affordable homes: Habitat for hustlers - Buying a House - MSN Real Estate

Affordable homes: Habitat for hustlers - Buying a House - MSN Real Estate: "The guiding principle of the nonprofit Habitat for Humanity, founded in 1976 to build affordable houses for underprivileged families, comes from the Old Testament: 'If a brother living near you becomes poor, you must provide for him . . . do not make a profit on the goods you sell him.' But that ethos doesn't carry over to the many banks, brokers and mortgage-servicing companies that deal with Habitat families and, increasingly, are profiting handsomely from the financially naive."

How to Regain Control of a Spooked Camel - WikiHow

I found this HowTo extremely helpful on my way to class this morning:

How to Regain Control of a Spooked Camel - WikiHow: "How to Regain Control of a Spooked Camel

In some parts of North Africa and the Middle East, the camel remains the primary means of long-distance transportation. These remarkable animals are intelligent and strong, and they possess incredible endurance. They can also be quite fast: some camels can briefly attain speeds up to 40 miles per hour (64 km/h). While their speed makes them ideal for racing—camel races are very popular in many parts of the world—it can provide a camel rider with a harrowing, potentially deadly experience if a camel is spooked or otherwise begins to run out of control."
