Poetic Injustice: María Kodama vs. The Lit Scene

In 2010, María Kodama pur­chased the rights to her for­mer husband’s com­plete works for a sum of two mil­lion euros.

Wong Fei Hung is from Fos­han, which is my ances­tral home as well as the ances­tral home of Bruce Lee.

Why salad is so overrated

As the world pop­u­la­tion grows, we have a press­ing need to eat bet­ter and farm bet­ter, and those of us try­ing to fig­ure out how to do those things have point­ed at lots of dif­fer­ent foods as prob­lem­at­ic. Almonds, for their water use. Corn, for the mono­cul­ture. Beef, for its green­house gas­es. In each of those cas­es, there’s some truth in the fin­ger-point­ing, but none of them is a clear-cut vil­lain.
