Is Martha Stewart History?

With over thirty books published and millions of magazines devoured by fans eager to organize their homes, prepare delicious meals, and simply be crafty, Martha Stewart has become known as the most successful modern domestic advisor in the United States.  But domestic advice of the kind Stewart doles out in her television appearances, print, and internet publications is not something new.  Domestic advisors have long had a place in America’s kitchens and homes and have been providing women with guidance on how to manage their homes and cook appropriate meals for hundreds of years.

Why You Need To Eat Bugs (And Get Over The 'Ick' Factor)

Flickr Creative Commons, Tim Brown Architecture

John the Baptist, we are told, subsisted on locusts and honey. I used to think that John the Baptist's would be a great name for a chain of fast food edible insect restaurants, if that trend ever took off.

Come to find out, there's some disagreement, especially online, about whether he really ate locusts or whether that's a reference to the fruit of the locust tree. Maybe people just don't like to think about John the Baptist eating bugs.

Through various quirks of the calendar, we haven't done a Politics, Burgers & Beer since January. Holy Moly. So Rich Hanley returns to talk issues, arguments, budgets, controversies, news, Obama, Malloy, Washington, Hartford, and other people and places with names. And as it's only Monday, this is just a guess, but I bet by Thursday the word 'sequestration' still gets mentioned once or twice or 39 times.

Hyper-Local Aid To Africa

Chion Wolf

The idea ‘For what you pay to feed your cat, you can save lives in my country.’ That...set a fire under Quinnipiac Professor Dennis Richardson.

He works in remote villages in Cameroon to aid a community of about 1,000 people.

On the opposite side of Africa, student and faculty of the University of Hartford are helping remote farmers create sustainable agriculture businesses in rural Kenya.

Stigmatizing "Food Addicts"

Chickadeeacres on Flickr Creative Commons

In the first studies to examine what the public thinks about people with an addiction to food, researchers at Yale’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, found that while those with food addiction are viewed more favorably than those with other addictive behaviors, labeling obese persons as addicts further stigmatizes them.

The Nose: 'Food Porn,' Hillary Bites Back, & A Case Against Cats

Flickr Creative Commons, light lady

In the Satyricon by Petronius, I know, is that a pretentious opening or what? We read about the feast of Trimalchio. It's long, it's opulent, and precious.

It's a satire of the moires of the moment. But them, as we digest it, it's a little more than that. It's an Instagram of a moment in time. It's all about a monied class completely out of touch and, implicitly, about an empire grown top heavy with spoils.
