“Make no mistake: The achievements of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, South Africa’s first democratically elected president, put him up there with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in the pantheon of rare men who guided transitioning nations with an otherworldly vision. Imprisoned 27 years by the country’s white Afrikaner minority, Mandela emerged in 1990 ready to forgive his oppressors and use his power not to pursue revenge but to create a new country founded on racial reconciliation. With his cheerfully colored Madiba shirts, his beatific smile, and his beautiful speeches, he became a kind of totem for the new South Africa, not only initiating but continually ensuring the peace.”

What the World Eats
These amazing portraits feature pictures of families from different countries with a week’s worth of food purchases. The photos, from the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluision, reveal a stark contrast between cultures and expose the proliferation of processed foods in the western diet and in the diets of many developing countries. Some people have more to eat and, too often, eat more nutritionally questionable food. And their health suffers. It’s no wonder that we are seeing an increase in diseases related to diet & lifestyle choices. We also learn that diet is determined largely by uncontrollable forces like poverty, conflict and globalization.
