Study: weight depends on the quality of your diet more than quantity
Treehugger - 6/26/2011.
By Sara Novak – A fascinating new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine says that the quality of the foods that you eat has more to do with weight than the quantity of food. A new study outlined the best and worst foods for a healthy body weight. Potato chips, it turns out, are the worst food for weight gain causing more gain per serving than any other food.

Embattled pollinators play crucial role in providing us with food
Bangor Daily News - 6/24/2011.
By Amy Campbell – As I write, the blossoms in our raspberry patch are busy with pollinators – a happy hour of sorts – more like a happy week or more – when bees and other insects feed or collect the pollen and nectar from the flowers. The result is a meal for them and for us a few weeks down the road when we can start picking the fruits of their activity.
