I’m reading about Lauren Conrad’s wedding in US Weekly and I really believe she’s this generation’s Martha Stewart.

Case in point: she ordered 300 apples to be delivered to her house, and with the help of a baker friend and a bridesmaid, made…

the wedding planner was rude! let the girl do what she wants, it’s her own wedding and she is paying you! craft to your little heart’s content Lauren!!!!

Ok now for the super cute part: the guy she married is named William Tell, a however many times great grandson of the William a Tell who famously shot an apple off his son’s head with an arrow? She had an arrow and apple micro theme throughout the wedding…from the invitations to brass vases that were reminiscent of a brass apple she bought on a whim at a flea market the week before he proposed…

I read the article very closely if you can’t tell.

I CAN TELL THAT as you rightfully well should have read it, you know??? i just love lauren conrad and no one can tell me anything bad about her because she is so lovely.

because she liked the idea of a homemade dessert.

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Just in case anyone thinks these are old posts still going round Tumblr: they’re not.

It’s a cruel irony that people in rural Iowa can be malnourished amid forests of cornstalks running to the horizon. Iowa dirt is some of the richest in the nation, even bringing out the poet in agronomists, who describe it as “black gold.” In 2007 Iowa’s fields produced roughly one-sixth of all corn and soybeans grown in the U.S., churning out billions of bushels.

These are the very crops that end up on Christina Dreier’s kitchen table in the form of hot dogs made of corn-raised beef, Mountain Dew sweetened with corn syrup, and chicken nuggets fried in soybean oil. They’re also the foods that the U.S. government supports the most. In 2012 it spent roughly $11 billion to subsidize and insure commodity crops like corn and soy, with Iowa among the states receiving the highest subsidies. The government spends much less to bolster the production of the fruits and vegetables its own nutrition guidelines say should make up half the food on our plates. In 2011 it spent only $1.6 billion to subsidize and insure “specialty crops”—the bureaucratic term for fruits and vegetables.

Those priorities are reflected at the grocery store, where the price of fresh food has risen steadily while the cost of sugary treats like soda has dropped. Since the early 1980s the real cost of fruits and vegetables has increased by 24 percent. Meanwhile the cost of nonalcoholic beverages—primarily sodas, most sweetened with corn syrup—has dropped by 27 percent.

“We’ve created a system that’s geared toward keeping overall food prices low but does little to support healthy, high-quality food,” says global food expert Raj Patel. “The problem can’t be fixed by merely telling people to eat their fruits and vegetables, because at heart this is a problem about wages, about poverty.”

This is a well-researched and impressively sensitive profile of hunger, poverty and health in the US. Can’t recommend it enough.
