“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”

Some Sick F*ck is Killing Our Eagles

Some sick f*ck is killing America eagles on mass. It’s likely that at least some of the 18 birds killed over the past month were poisoned. It’s also possible that this was accidental. But that’s not an excuse for causing such wanton suffering to any wild animal population, much less one we’re so invested in as a nation. So whoever killed these birds ought not plan to hide behind ignorance; we ought to send a message that this carelessness is intolerable by handing them the highest fine possible (or go Liam Neeson on them).

Supermarket Farm to Table

InFarm is a self-contained agricultural center that lets you shop for food that is literally as local as possible. InFarm designed new technology—including some patented techniques—to make the tiny farms possible. It uses every centimeter of space. Unlike a state-of-the-art greenhouse, where seedlings might be raised in a dense area but later moved, all stages of plant growth happen in a single area.

Target’s Food Innovation Revolution

Unknown

Outstanding thinking (if you’re a nerd like me) about how folks are designing smarter ways to deliver products and services like nutritious – fresher food – faster to consumers.

Unlike other startups that are big on ideas, but often short on resources, the coLab is able to leverage all that Target has to offer: funding, a massive supply chain and millions of customers who can provide feedback.

What’s not to like.
