1. This is the weirdest thing I've ever seen. The Japanese has created an intellectual candy kit series. One of its products is called Popin' Cookin!, a Japanese DIY sushi candy kit. It is advertised as affordable, safe and fun edible toy for both kids and adults. You should watch the video on how to turn powder to gummy sushi and fish roe.

3. Read M.Pollan's memo "Farmer in Chief" to President Obama on food issues in America. US food system and agribusiness are relying heavily on fuel fossils and slowly killing our planet by polluting our air and soil.

Pollan calls for a change in policies to bring back balance through the ways we farm and deal with food.
