Let’s face it – too much of the food chain is broken | Lucy Siegle

Contaminated food is the price we will increasingly pay as the farming industry chases profitsTo the American agrarian poet and philosopher Wendell Berry, “eating is an agricultural act”. It’s a wonderful sentiment: when you choose what to eat, you’re also investing in how that crop is grown or how that animal is reared and slaughtered.These sentiments provide the bedrock for the sustainable food movement, with its emphasis on short, transparent supply chains with integrity. In practice, getting behind this type of profound agrarian communion and joining the dots between soil and salad, or farm and fork, seems impossible. Still, the idea gives us something to chew on as the next existential food crisis rolls into town – this time, eggs contaminated with a toxic insecticide, fipronil. This latest scandal serves to illustrate how little control and say we have over our agricultural system.

The common use of the English language is an example of the American impact on Philippine society. It has contributed to the ready acceptance and influence of American pop cultural trends. This affinity is seen in Filipinos' love of fast food and American film and music. Fast food outlets are found on many street corners. American global fast food chain stalwarts have entered the market, but local fast food chains like Goldilocks and most notably Jollibee, the leading fast food chain in the country, have emerged and compete successfully against their foreign rivals. <

The teaching of James 2:10, "For whosoever shall keep the whole law and yet offend in one point is guilty of all," must not be made to contradict the plain teaching of the Saviour that there is a difference in sinners, and different degrees in their punishment. The meaning is that the law is a unit, and that he that offends in one point has broken the law as a whole. A chain of ten links is as surely broken when one link is broken as when all ten links are broken.
At last he became aware of the mighty surging of a number of his antagonists back and forth upon the great chain that held him, and presently came the same sound that he had heard at a little distance from him a short time before he had been attacked--his chain had parted and the broken end snapped back against the stone wall.
