My first time eating Korean-style food in Seoul was a disappointing experience. I went to a well-known barbecue place in the Hongdae neighborhood that many of my adoptee friends recommended. There was nothing wrong with the meat (Canadian not American as the waitress stressed), but there were only a couple panchan (side dishes) that were not very exciting. Perhaps, I thought, I had been spoiled during my other two visits to Korea, visiting my family and touring the East coast and Jeju Island.

NEW YORK –Family farmers have filed a Notice of Appeal challenging Judge Naomi Buchwald's February 24th ruling dismissing Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association et al v. Monsanto. The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Manhattan will hear the farmers' appeal, seeking to reinstate the case, which has received worldwide attention.
San Francisco, and most cities, prohibits fruit-bearing trees on sidewalks and other public right-of-ways, saying they are health and safety hazards. The fear is that fallen, rotten fruits attract rats and squirrels and cause pedestrians to slip and fall. Many of the urban trees managed by the SF Department of Public Works are ornamental fruit trees such as apple, pear, plum, lemon, and cherry which produce normal leaves and flowers, but small or no fruit.
