EWG's 2017 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce
More and more Americans are demanding food free of synthetic chemicals. But EWG's analysis of tests by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that nearly 70 percent of samples of 48 types of conventionally grown produce were contaminated with pesticide residues.

The USDA found a total of 178 different pesticides and pesticide breakdown products on the thousands of produce samples it analyzed. The pesticides persisted on fruits and vegetables even when they were washed and, in some cases, peeled.

But there are stark differences in the number and amount of pesticides on various types of produce. EWG's annual Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce™ lists the Dirty Dozen™ fruits and vegetables with the most pesticide residues, and the Clean Fifteen™, for which few, if any, residues were detected.

When buying organic produce is not an option, use the Shopper's Guide to choose foods lower in pesticide residues. With the Shopper's Guide, you can have the health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables while limiting your exposure to pesticides.

Anti-Semitism, Security, and What it Means to Be Protected · Jewschool
"I’ve been quite concerned, personally, and communally, about the dramatic uptick in anti-Semitic threats and attacks since the election. And I am glad that all 100 Senators are telling the Trump administration that it needs to do more. However, I am also aware that the proportions are striking here: the Senate — divided and hostile at an historic level — unites in solidarity with our Jewish community in response to a frightening but (thankfully, so far) very low register of violence: robo-call threats that have given no indication of having backing to follow through, but cause fear and disruption of communal life, and scary property damage to Jewish, sacred spaces (broken and vandalized synagogue windows, vandalized Jewish cemeteries). At the same time, Muslim, Indian, Black, immigrant, and LGBTQ communities and individuals have not been received the concern, attention, and care of the Senate, even as they have faced similar, and, in many cases, more direct and lethal violence. And, of course, Black individuals and the Black community, Native Americans and the Native American community, continue to be targeted, kidnapped, beaten, enslaved, and killed, even by law enforcement itself. Somehow, though, it seems unimaginable in the world we inhabit, that the Senate would unite to pressure the White House to engage in swift action to curtail violence targeted against those communities (most of which, of course, have overlap with the Jewish community). Therefore, while I appreciate the Senate’s gesture and statement, I am also distrustful. Throughout history, the main way anti-Semitism has functioned has been for people in true positions of power to pick off the Jews to use as their scapegoats, fig leaves and shields, to protect them from opposition from the main targets of their exploitation and oppression. They want to divide us Jews from other, oppressed, minority communities, making us unsympathetic of their correct claims of abuse by the power structures, until such a point that minority communities direct their rage at the more accessible Jews, rather than at the true, deep sources of their oppression. This has happened for centuries, and it’s happening right now. We Jews have to resist being played as pawns in this way and maintain our solidarity with all oppressed communities, even as we take responsible measures to protect ourselves."

Prospects for the American press under Trump, part two - PressThink
Switch to an “outside in” (rather than inside out) pattern. Assume almost no access to Trump and the people around him who have power, or imagine that the access game becomes a net negative. Now what? You still have to find out what’s going on, but the “access” portal is closed. This seems to me a better starting point, even as you fight for real access, defend the daily briefing, and demand timely responses to Freedom of Information requests. Outside-in means you start on the rim and work towards the center, rather than the reverse. Domestically, it involves mining sources in the agencies and civil service rather than the people perceived as “players.” (As is commonly done in investigative journalism.) With foreign policy it means more is likely to come from other governments than from the U.S. During the Trump campaign who had better access: The reporters in the media pen, or those who got tickets and moved with the rest of the crowd? Were the news organizations on the blacklist really at a disadvantage? I can hear the reply. We need both: inside and outside. Fine, do both. My point is: outside-in can become the baseline method, and inside-out the occasionally useful variant. Switch it up. Send interns to the daily briefing when it becomes a newsless mess. Move the experienced people to the rim.

Faced With Trump's Media Blacklist, Broadcast Evening News Shows Roll Over
"In the wake of the restricted briefing, several outlets -- including The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and McClatchy -- announced that they will not participate in future closed briefings. It is imperative that other media organizations join the boycott of the Trump administration's blacklist. As Media Matters' Angelo Carusone explained, outlets that participate in briefings while their colleagues are banned 'lend legitimacy to a process that is fundamentally inconsistent with a free press.'"
