A new report called, “The Dating Game: How Confusing Food Date Labels Lead to Food Waste in America,” describes our expiration-date labeling system here in the US as convoluted, confusing, inconsistent, ineffective, disorienting, ambiguous, and dizzying. It doesn’t think much of the system, in other words.The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses.

and industry money; squanders important natural resources that are used to
grow, process, distribute, and store America’s food supply; and represents a missed opportunity to feed the millions of food insecure households in the United States that are struggling to access healthy, affordable food. Misinterpretation of the date labels on foods is a key factor leading to this waste. . . . Read Complete Report

The scandals keep piling up for one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the US. Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca had to admit that his department gave preferential treatment when hiring dozens deputies. Some of the deputies had troubling criminal histories. Then there are the 18 deputies facing federal charges for abuse in the jail system. RT’s Ramon Galindo explains the litany of problems LA County’s top cop is facing.

I also found this little gem in my old pile of DVD TV recordings. I love the uploads of this show and will add this one to my playlist. I read Buddy Holly’s Bio., there is a little mystery to his death; although it might sound a little exaggerated.

I received word earlier tonight of the passing of Lloyd Pye.
I worked with Lloyd on several shows (Oopa Loopa Café), and he was always the gracious guest and dedicated researcher. His association with the “Starchild Skull” and his pursuit of its genetic makeup consumed his research for nearly a full decade.
Lloyd, we’ll miss you.

From Cuba Headlines
One of the first sights greeting passengers at the Key West International Airport is a statue of two families with children standing around a large, concrete buoy. “Ninety miles to Cuba,” reads the words etched on the centerpiece.
From that runway, tourists are closer to Havana than they are to Miami. And decades ago, residents of this southernmost outpost in Florida could fly to Cuba for lunch and be back in time for dinner.
It’s only a short flight across the Florida Straits, once crisscrossed regularly. But that hasn’t happened since 1960 and it’s uncertain whether it will happen any time soon. . . . Read Complete Report
