Celebration of the Senses Day

Forget about the Monday blahs, the 24th marks a day to take it all in. With all your senses, enjoy life. See, hear, feel, smell, and touch the wonders of our world, which we should be good stewards of.

·         See a rainbow, splendid architecture or artwork.

·         Hear a rolling stream, great music, or a waterfall.

·         Smell great cooking, flowers, or nature after a brief rainfall.

·         Feel the touch of a kind  human hand.

·         Taste spices, your favorite foods, or take in some aromatherapy.

·         Treat your proprioceptor (sensory receptor which receives stimuli from within the body, especially one that responds to position and movement) senses to the excitement of a rollercoaster and laughter.

Avoid noise, sharp objects, taking a nasty fall, terrified screaming (like that in the 1990’s movie “Arachnophobia”), visions of deceased beached grey whales (over 90 along the Pacific Coast this year), rotten eggs and other spoiled foods.

Happy Sustainable Gastronomy Day

The Dailey Sun~Chronicles – “No Rumors, No Fakes – Just the Facts, Jack!”

 

Volume VIII, Issue 42                                  6 – 18 – 2019                           ***** Edition

 

Sustainable Gastronomy

sust gasro

A commitment of gastronomy towards the principles of sustainability include:

  • poverty reduction;
  • efficient use of resources;
  • environmental protection and climate change; and
  • the protection of cultural values, heritage and diversity.

 

The United Nations has designated June 18th as Sustainable Gastronomy Day. International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.

 

This is one of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals that are call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

There are 17 goals (see: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/).

 

They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

 

The Five Principles of Sustainable Food and Agriculture

FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) has developed a common vision and an integrated approach to sustainability across agriculture, forestry and fisheries. This unified perspective – valid across all agricultural sectors and taking into account social, economic and environmental considerations – ensures the effectiveness of action on the ground and is underpinned by knowledge based on the best available science, and adaptation at community and country levels to ensure local relevance and applicability.

A common vision for sustainable food and agriculture must equally address social, economic and environmental dimensions to ensure sustainability.

The principles that can collectively guide the process of transition to greater sustainability are:

  1. Improving efficiency in the use of resources is crucial to sustainable agriculture.
  2. Sustainability requires direct action to conserve, protect and enhance natural resources.
  3. Agriculture that fails to protect and improve rural livelihoods and social well-being is unsustainable.
  4. Enhanced resilience of people, communities and ecosystems is key to sustainable agriculture.
  5. Sustainable food and agriculture may require responsible and effective governance mechanisms.

 

“Sustainable Gastronomy Day” emphasizes the need to focus the world’s attention on the role that sustainable gastronomy can play. It also reaffirms that all cultures and civilizations are contributors and crucial enablers of sustainable development.

The UN General Assembly adopted on 21 December 2016 its resolution A/RES/71/246 and designated 18 June as an international observance, Sustainable Gastronomy Day.

The decision acknowledges gastronomy as a cultural expression related to the natural and cultural diversity of the world.

Sustainable gastronomy can play a role due to its interlinkages with the three dimensions of sustainable development, in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by promoting:

  • agricultural development;
  • food security;
  • nutrition;
  • sustainable food production; and
  • conservation of biodiversity.

 

Origin Labelling of Food

Food products linked to their place of origin are economically and socially beneficial to rural areas and promote sustainable development, boasting an annual trade value of over $50 billion worldwide. Such products have specific characteristics, qualities or reputations stemming from their geographical origin.

The study Strengthening sustainable food systems through geographical indications by the FAO and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) analyses the economic impact of Geographical Indication registration in nine case studies:

  • Coffee (Colombia)
  • Darjeeling tea (India)
  • Futog cabbage (Serbia)
  • Kona coffee (United States)
  • Manchego cheese (Spain)
  • Penja pepper (Cameroon)
  • Taliouine saffron (Morocco)
  • Tête de Moine cheese (Switzerland)
  • Vale dos Vinhedos wine (Brazil)

The registration of products linked to their place of origin has implications running far deeper than economic gains alone. Local producers and processors at the center of the registration process help make food systems more inclusive and more efficient. Together, producers develop the product specifications, and promote and protect the origin label. The creation of such labels also stimulates public-private sector dialogue as public authorities are often closely associated with the registration and certification process.

United States Declares War on Three New Fronts in Three Continents

Washington, D.C. (Easter Week 2018) – Alleged Christian Donald J. Trump is now declaring new wars in three continental fronts: East Asia, Central America, and the Middle East – versus Red China, Syria, and ‘caravans’ of North and South Americans headed north, supposedly to work in agricultural jobs that U.S. citizens will not do.

The renewed ‘Tariff War’ targeted at the socioeconomics of over one billion people may be the toughest to win. Those that know history recall bankruptcies as well as lost ‘military’ battles the U.S. has waged against immigration and Middle East people.

Those that understand American government see irony of how any President can declare war without an act of Congress.

Also remarkable is, as the National Director of National Security (DHS), a.k.a. Homeland [no relation to German Nazis] described, no details to the White House Press Corp how, when, why, and at what financial cost the southwest border war will entail.

Perhaps it would help if presidential advisors would provide planning assistance for the federal government?

Featured Image -- 172

More planning and less tweeting may improve the United States’ odds of winning any international conflict?!?

As my old friend Bob would say, “Lord have mercy!”

Timing in sports, stand-up comedy, business, cooking, and international politics is very important. May the Lord spare US from three losses, poor jokes, bankruptcy, world disasters, death, and another burned pot roast.

Reno Treats Houseless People So, So Poorly… O Lord Have Mercy

Reno gets what it deserves… a series of earthquakes today on Christmas Eve, Eve.

The so-called “Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada” are not a Roman Catholic organization any longer. Run by bureaucrats and funded by federal, state, Washoe County, Douglas County, City of Reno, City of Sparks funds, and private charitable contributions from well-meaning Americans and others just looking for an income tax write-off.

Please give the needy what they need. Solutions, not excuses and half-baked ideas.

RENO (Nevada) ! Oh the way they treat houseless people is disgusting… the ghetto on Record Street, created by the Reno City Council, is a joke!

Catholic Charities USA in Reno Nevada is NOT A CATHOLIC ORGANIZATION but a group collecting federal, state, local, and private donations to cover their “administrative costs” and serve those god-awful lunches at St. Vincent’s Dining Room (no relation to St. Vincent of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (headquartered in the Archdiocese of St. Louis)… ‘come on, man!

Excerpt from “Country Corner – Germ Warfare”

Excerpt from the Screenplay, “Country Corner – Germ Warfare”.

In a big voice Jo Jo cheers, “Let’s go Sharks!

Ah choo, Ah choo. Ah choo!”

“You are sneezing on the floor,” remarks frightened Benji.

“Oh sheet, the Tall One is getting the flu. Stay away from me. Benji, step back from Jo Jo.” Roscoe continues his verbal tirade, “You are going to kill somebody. Spreading the flu is murder!”

D. A. D.’s Status Report on the Screenplay “The Last Resort” and Motivated to Give Up Casino Life for Lent (40 Days)

 and Dateline: 2-20-2015

County of Douglas, Northern Nevada

fyi, I’m still sick as a dog

  • my joints and muscles feel like I got beat up by two old ladies.
  • My stomach is spasming and cramping after this feta cheese + spinach stuffed pig  tenderloin lunch.

I ate a warm noon meal at the Sr. center… just finishing up…

and nope, I am not playing bingo with the rest of the folks.

Two (2) casinos 86’ed me for the day… I guess I will give up casino life for this Lenten Season.

Facts:

Thanks to Mr. James of the C.O.D. Garage and Casino on 3595 Esmeralda Avenue in historic downtown Minden for throwing me out twice (4:00 a.m. and 7:15 a.m.). Mr. J. had someone cash-out my electronic-computer-generated winnings ticket. It was for $19.75. The dude came back with $14.75. I did not notice the missing Lincoln. The messenger was given 3 authentic sort-of-silver quarters as a tip. This casino beat me by $6.00.

codcasino-carsonvalleytimes-8182014

The other casino had Mr. Pete eject me from the hotel lobby outside the business center – this center is about the size of two linen closets with two PCs, no office supplies, an aged printer, and no Microsoft software loaded on it.  I keep telling myself that the BDI is a resort, not a four star hotel, motor lodge, and camper park. At this casino, I cashed-out my computer-generated winnings ticket for $14.25. Go figure… I tipped both bartenders 4 silver-clad or copper sandwiched US quarters. Thus, this casino beat me by $8.25.

Well, at least the BDI gave me two shots of some sort of Kahlua-flavored liquer for breakfast.

Still cannot get green handing suitcase from the Holiday Lodge, but called the US Marshals office and the state (Nevada) Attorney’s Oriface.  Ms. Jackie is the owner who split town yesterday.

I missed the train from Reno this morning.

There is always another train at the same time the following day.

Aloha.
