Explore Taiwan’s Unique Themed Restaurant Culture Smithsonian Magazine

Globalisation. food and foodways …. Anthony Bourdain visited a restaurant in Singapore where the theme is surgical — globalisation, consumerism, and saturation — in an era where everything material and virtual are over-saturated, shock is the only way to get attention. i myself prefer the quiet and simple and slow — the time tested and the familiar and the familial. i suspect part of the anger and anxiety is coming from being bombarded with shock-attention grabbing manipulation all the time. which reminds me of two recent articles, about doctors prescribing “nature” — go for a hike, go meditate in a forest — as medicine; and the longstanding Japanese practice of immersing oneself in nature. of course the nature of globalisation is that somewhere somehow this will turn viral, become a “must do” …. books and websites and advice columns will appear about the right and wrong way to “do” nature, and then before you know it, a billion dollar multinational industry will appear — nature coaching, nature tours, products to use while encountering nature, etc. Professor Liang

The History About Each Vegetable Seed to Crop

Globalization. Food and the World. now that you are submitting your first brief essay and thinking (i hope ….) about the next essay, this is a good example of what we are looking for …. is this a credible website? to cite information i would like to see a second, peer reviewed source in your next paper. but this is a good beginning. it also gives you a very quick global overview — if you overlay these sources, with what happened in global history in the last 2,000 years, tie that in to the migration patterns of your own family, then you would have a good outline for things to research and analyze. finally, i note with interest (and a little bit sighing ….) that the three comments from readers concern grammar and whether tomatoes are a fruit or vegetable …. ah, humans, always endearing and befuddling and aggravating at the same time! ….
