Weekend Reading


Time to talk about local food, food insecurity, the Farm Bill, Big Agriculture and the "Super Committee" -

La Vida Locavore talks about it here.

Mark Bittman does here.

Slow Food does here and here.

Grist talks about it every day here.

Other than that, I'd like to talk about how I do not like McDonalds. Read about their new TV Channel here and about the truly unfortunate pigs that end up in the McRib.

Local Fun and Action

Bring your canned goods to donate to our local food bank this Saturday to Clifton park between noon and 2pm.

Cold Spring Harbor's Whaling Museum has Ocean Science Sundays this Sunday at 2pm.

If you go out that way, you could stop by the Fish Hatchery for an egg-stripping demonstration.

We have two days off from school next week, so if you'r elooking for activities:

The Huntington Historical Society has a morning program for kids on Election Day, Nov. 8th.

The Science Museum of Long Island will also run workshops on these school holidays:

Aerospace -Tuesday, November 8 -Election Day
From the atmosphere to outerspace we will set out on a cloud hopping and star trekking adventure. Visit a planetarium to see stars up close and take to the skies with model rockets that launch into the clouds. What do you think is outside our solar system?
Physics of Flight -Friday, November 11 -Veterans Day
Up, up and away we go on a journey to discover the mysteries of flight. By using flying objects you create, you will discover the physics behind flight. Kites, planes, balloons, rockets and helicopters will all be studied.
