A friend of mine is studying alternative money systems in Boulder, and has solicited input from her varied professional circles. Here are the questions she poses about localizing community transactions: 19969

Israel and the surplus Passover bread

I thought the NPR human interest story about Passover was going to be a PR piece: What do Israeli Jews do with their leavened bread during Passover, when religious observance forbids not just the consumption of bread, but the possession of it? What do Jewish bakeries, grocers, eateries, distributors and warehouses do with their un-unleavened inventories? I'll bet you were going to guess that they give it away! 7321

$6.55 an hour? Oh, whoopee…

Notice how all the big guys look out after themselves.

Barack- ‘I may have a pigmentation disorder, but I’m just like you, Mr. Businessman’

They may plow up interesting stuff, but online, associating my IP and cookies, for harvesting by profile aggregators, I dont think so. I've done the 6-question Which Book Are You, but I wont do the List Your Favorite Books and I certainly wont do a Myers-Briggs type analysis. For whom? 2533
