From Famine to Feast in Forty Years: Policy Matters
In the mid-1970s, the outlook for global food security was grim. There was even talk of “food triage”—the idea that food-rich countries would decide which food-poor countries should get food, dooming the rest. It’s hard to believe today.
In a new Huffington Post blog story— From Famine to Feast in Forty Years: Policy Matters— IFPRI Director General Shenggen Fan describes the incredible progress in food and nutrition security we’ve made since that dire prediction, due in great part to evidence-based, food policy research.
There is still much work to be done to sustainably and nutritiously feed a growing world population, but as IFPRI marks its 40th anniversary, Fan has reason to be optimistic that we “won't have to wait another 40 years before we end hunger and malnutrition.”
Forgot my glasses
Yesterday, my daughter again asked why I didn't do something useful with my time. Talking about my "doing something useful" seemed to be her favorite topic of conversation. She was "only thinking of me" and suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the guys. I did this and when I got home last night I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business. I told her that I had joined a parachute club.
She said, "Are you nuts? You're almost 74 years old and you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?" I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.
She said to me, "Good grief, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."
"I'm in trouble again, and I don't know what to do... I signed up for five jumps a week." I told her. She fainted.
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.
