The Shining Light & The Summer Storm

That morning light, which brings warmth and life is Amaterasu, the benevolent Goddess of the sun. Universally, she is adored.

Less so are her brothers, namely Susano, bringer of storms, whose jealousy of his sister’s popularity drove him to burn her golden rice fields and scatter the sacred looms of her people. Grief stricken at the destruction, Amaterasu sealed herself inside a deep cavern. Her people suffered and the realm fell into crushing darkness.

Like his sister, Amaterasu, Susano was born to rule, but he was tempestuous, with a flaring anger, wicked tongue, and a penchant for destruction. Their father, Izanagi, would have none of it and decreed that Susano live in the Underworld. His mood dark at this news, Susano committed heinous acts of vandalism and murder. Acts that sent Amaterasu into shameful hiding.

At a river side, Susano ventured upon an elderly couple, weeping and cradling their young daughter. Eight children, they’d had once, but now only one remained; seven devoured by the eight-headed serpent. Susano was resolved. To atone for his crimes, to prove his father wrong, to better himself, Susano would slay this beast.

One by one, he chopped the eight necks, until only the wriggling tail remained. Sweeping his blade split the reptilian hide, leaving notches in his blade but revealing a brilliant sword inside: the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi.

To his sister, he gave the blade. An act of atonement, but not an apology. His true nature would never change, but his intention could.

Mexican Rice.  Recipe from Brown Eyed Baker.

Mexican Rice

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 teaspoon garlic salt
¼ cup chopped onion
½ cup tomato sauce
2 cups chicken broth

(A lot of the recipes I saw called for cumin or other spices, but I chose to omit them.)

1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat and add rice. Cook, stirring constantly, until puffed and golden. While rice is cooking, sprinkle with garlic salt.

2. Stir in onions and cook until tender. Stir in tomato sauce and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Looking at the moon, I remember 
Looking at the stars, I think back on the days together with my loved ones 
The sun shines only on the past, and the future is shrouded in mystery 
No matter how often I look into the mirror, all I see is the present 
I will never forget the golden rice fields, and the children’s gleaming smiles 
Let us dream for now. Let us dream until the day of our homecoming 

thank me later

The bento box was one that was bought from home, that much was obvious. Yosuke could tell from the worn scratches on the sides and the slightly off colour lid. Complete with a pair of chopsticks and held together with a crimped elastic band —grey, of course, everything about the box screamed Souji.

Yosuke lifted his head to his friend, and at the other’s expectant look, undid the elastic band and opened the lid.

These vitamin-fortified bananas might get you thinking differently about GMOs
More than 100,000 children around the world die every year from a lack of vitamin A.
By Nathanael Johnson

It’s not the first time there has been controversy over the use of genetic engineering to solve vitamin A deficiency. Since 1982, researchers have been trying to genetically engineer carotenes into rice. In 2000, the cover of Time declared that “golden rice,” as it was named, could “save a million kids a year.” But that was premature: The successful development of golden rice has been thwarted by both technical challenges and protesters.

This is a lot bigger than a squabble between student protesters and scientists. More than 100,000 children around the world still die every year from a lack of vitamin A. The pro-GMO and anti-GMO contingents have accused each other of taking advantage of these vulnerable people to advance their own causes. There’s no doubt that biotechnology boosters have used Golden Rice as a public relations tool, and there’s also no doubt that it could be a legitimate solution that has been delayed by protests.

Now we’re seeing the beginnings of the same debate as researchers from Iowa State, Uganda, and Australia team up to reengineer the staple food of Uganda, the cooking banana. Clearly, this strategy can be both difficult and controversial, so why do people keep trying to genetically engineer their way out of malnutrition?

That’s the Harmandir Sahib in Punjab, India, the holiest shrine in the Sikh religion and home to a kickass lentil soup. The “Golden Temple” offers free bread and rice 24 hours a day, every day, to anyone who wants it. About 75,000 people eat there on an average day.

Seriously, you simply go in, sit on the floor, and get served some delicious munch. All they ask in return is that you take off your shoes, dress sensibly (no sequin capes that say “Pussy Master” on the back), and don’t bring in cigarettes or alcohol.

It takes 15,000 lbs. of flour, 26,000 lbs. of rice, 2,800 lbs. of lentils, 300,000 metal plates, and 450 staff members (plus hundreds of volunteers) to make the kitchen run. The whole operation is supported by donations from around the world … and probably also, like, some pillars and concrete and stuff.
