Not so complicated

Bits and pieces from across the internet about culture, the environment, study abroad, international education, and an occasional wildcard.

Working together to reduce food waste

Nifty use of social media to reduce food waste in the San Francisco area. It would be great to see this spread to other communities.

Bring back the beavers

Maybe it’s because I’m partial to woodland creatures but I am intrigued by the suggestion to bring back beavers to the UK countryside to help deminish the effects of flooding.

The Exceptional Pete Seeger

Highly recommendable 2006 profile of the great Mr. Seeger from the New Yorker. Make sure you go to PeteSeeger.com beacause the NYer’s website only offers an intro to nonsubscribers.

Tomorrow: Global Life Link-Up

Cate over at Small Planet Studio is organizing a “Global Life” link-up on Friday, the 31st. “Link up to two of your own globally-themed blog posts. They don’t have to be from the current week but please, no products, promotions, events, social media profiles, etc.” Last month’s can be found here.
