From the King Corn website: "King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, nitrogen fertilizers, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil.  But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat -- and how we farm."

Unfortunately I can't make it, but next Sunday, February 10, Slow Food Boston is hosting a screening of the film King Corn at 4pm at Theodore Parker Church in West Roxbury, MA.  The church is located at 1859 Centre Street, on the corner of Corey Street. There's parking on the street and in local lots and the church is also accessible by MBTA bus.

Its always a thrill to watch games between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. During yesterday’s game between the Celtics and Cavs, LeBron James Shoes had 42 pts and 9 ast. MVP anyone? Well other that his scoring show, LeBron James drew much attention towards his feet. During the game yesterday, LeBron James was balling in the Nike Air Max LeBron VII Dunkman. The bright shade of green had to distract the opposing players for sure. The Cavaliers trailed by a large amount, but the King led his team to a comeback and ultimately take the lead late in the 4th quarter. But it wasn’t enough as the Celtics pulled away with the win. But even though the Cavs lost, LeBron had the most heat on his feet. Check out more pics after the jump.

The crises we meet today are unlikely to be so extreme, but however little the stress, it involves the same response. It is when such a reaction lasts long, through continued exposure to stress, that health becomes endangered. Such serious conditions as high blood pressure and heart diseases have established links with stress. Since we cannot remove stress from our lives (it would be unwise to do so even if we could), we need to find ways to deal with it.
