Schock has never been a conservative. He is a ladder-climbing socialite, preying on the Republican left-of-center voters, and the right-leaning that don't see his ploy, "or don't care). Whatever, it's not like he's different from the run-of-the-mill Republican OR Democrat, so I'm sure he'll weather this storm until he post pics of his dick, or is caught whorin'. AND…

Kudos to the QFD for teaching fire safety to our children and I hope they talked about smoke detectors, which I'm sure they did. Smoke detectors the first line of defense against house fires should be on every floor and near or in every bedroom. Install working smoke detectors in your home and keep your family safe.

It's one thing to think he's getting the rich to pay their fair share in a liberals world but the rich already pay most of the taxes. Even if you agree with the corrupt Madigan, the only people who will benefit from such a tax is Madigan and the rest of the corrupt politicians. They'll waste it and buy votes with the money not solve our fiscal problems in Illinois.

IFT launches FutureFood 2050 to highlight solutions to feed 9 Billion

10 months, 1 week ago Illinois Ag Connection

Explains how science will deliver solutions needed to feed the world's people

From Illinois Ag Connection:

he world's largest scientific society of individual food scientists and technologists unveiled a sweeping new program today, FutureFood 2050, to create a broad dialogue on how science will deliver solutions needed to feed the world's nine billion people by the year 2050.

FutureFood 2050 is backed by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) whose 18,000 members are scientists, researchers, technologists and food professionals from 100 countries working in academia, industry and government. With the premise that the science of food is an essential ingredient for feeding the world sustainably, FutureFood 2050 will highlight the people and stories leading the way toward a healthier, safer and better nourished planet.

IFT has always been focused on publishing valuable content for its members, food professionals and the media, including Food Technology magazine, IFT Expert Reports, IFT Scientific Status Summaries, Journal of Food Science, Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety and the Journal of Food Science Education. With the launch of FutureFood 2050, IFT has expanded its publishing mission to reach a broader audience through its interview series and upcoming documentary film. Under the direction of an independent editorial team, FutureFood 2050 will come to life over the coming months with 75 interviews featuring independent-minded thought leaders around the globe. At the same time, a documentary will be completed looking at how the science of food will contribute solutions to feeding the world. The documentary will provide the public with a closer, more intimate look at the science, stories and personalities addressing this challenge.

"Many films have focused on food issues, but they often neglect or misinterpret the role of science, sometimes relying on personal beliefs more than facts," says Scott Hamilton Kennedy, the Academy Award-nominated film director overseeing the FutureFood 2050 documentary, scheduled for release in mid to late 2015. "By looking at this challenge through the unbiased lens of science, our goal is to address critical questions surrounding food in a fair, transparent manner that will hopefully surprise, and maybe even transform us along the way."

From now until the film's 2015 release, the FutureFood 2050 interview series will look more broadly at the ways that science is tackling the world's most pressing food issues. A new website at www.FutureFood2050.com will serve as a digital hub for the public to follow the stories and connect science to the conversation about how to feed the planet. An international team of editors and journalists, including award-winning author of The Taste of Tomorrow: Dispatches from the Future of Food, Josh Schonwald, will uncover the stories that shape the interview series.

"Feeding nine billion people by 2050 simply can't happen without science and technology playing a leading role," Schonwald said. "This project will showcase leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs and activists who are shaping the future of food from a wide variety of perspectives -- some high tech, some not. And along the way, we hope to foster a better dialogue about the options surrounding some of the world's most complex, highly-charged issues."

The FutureFood 2050 interview series will tackle topics across the food spectrum including global hunger, sustainability, health and nutrition and food safety. Since complex issues like feeding nine billion people by 2050 aren't just about food, the interview series will also explore issues related to climate change, sustainability, politics, economic factors and more. Scientists--along with cultural influencers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, chefs, journalists and more--will be featured.
