This book is a tribute to agriculture and the great diversity of practices and customs that surround it. Ableman, a California organic farmer, presents a photographic essay with 170 full-color photographs of farming practices in China, Kenya, Burundi, Italy, Peru, the American Southwest, and elsewhere. His photos include fields that rely on many different cropping practices, markets displaying an array of foods for interested buyers, urban plots, and plants grown in backyard gardens and pots. We catch a glimpse of people of all ages and many cultures involved in producing and selling food and their links with community and culture. The accompanying text offers Ableman's perspectives on the contrast between industrial agriculture, which uses heavy machinery and chemicals, and the labor-intensive, nonchemical approaches still used in most of the world. He urges us to understand the interconnections between our food, our health, our communities, and our environment for the sake of the planet's future. Recommended.

Development doesn't break any previous norms unlike

When it comes to development,

how much is too little ?

Residents of Burlington's Maple Avenue community are upset that councillors last week supported a development that broke all previous norms.

Planning jargon and rationale didn't appease them.

Except for Halton Regional Councillor John Taylor, councillors and the mayor supported a mammoth 186-unit condo development on the east side of Maple Avenue, on 0.58 hectares (1.4 acres) between Ontario Street and Maple Crossing Boulevard.

It will be 21 storeys, 224 feet high, with a two-storey podium, and two height changes (step-downs) at the 17th and ninth floors. This height will surpass the tallest buildings downtown now, with higher ceilings, and the larger number of storeys.

Residents said they accepted the principle of apartments, but were upset at concessions being granted. Height and traffic conflicts were the biggest issues...

two wombs

MARQUETTE, Mich.–A northern Michigan woman with two wombs has given birth to twin daughters – one from each uterus.

Twenty-one-year-old Sarah Reinfelder's babies were delivered seven weeks premature Thursday by Caesarean section at Marquette General Hospital in the Upper Peninsula, The Mining Journal and WLUC-TV reported.

"I'm so excited," Reinfelder said after the twins were born. "I couldn't sleep at all ... I was just thinking about the girls and how I was so happy they were healthy because nobody really knew what to expect.''

Doctors said Kaylin Joy and Valerie Marie were healthy, and they and their mother were doing fine. Kaylin, who was delivered first, weighed 3 pounds, 15 ounces, and Valerie weighed 4 pounds, 15 ounces.

"It's phenomenal for us to have nice healthy babies," said Dr. Connie Hedmark, one of the physicians involved in the delivery. She and Dr. Breanna Pond performed two Caesarean sections for the births.

Reinfelder has a condition that is known as uterus didelphys, and doctors said such twin births are rare. The uteri are different sizes, with Valerie, the larger twin, born from the larger uterus.

The twins have similar risks as other premature babies, said neonatologist Julie Frei. She expects the twins, who don't have fully developed lung function, likely will be hospitalized for three or four weeks.

Reinfelder, along with her husband Shane and 10-month-old son William, are originally from Sault Ste. Marie. They had been living in Marquette for about two months to be close to the hospital.

This year’s event is set for 7 p.m. Dec. 1 at Dominion Gardens Park in which thousands of LED lights will light up the park.
