Global Journalist: Qatar Feud Risks Gulf Instability

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 17:39:29 +0000

On the surface, the tiny Persian Gulf nation of Qatar has much in common with Saudi Arabia and the other monarchies of the Arabian peninsula. Hydro-carbons have made it enormously wealthy, and it’s conservative Muslim nation ruled by a hereditary monarchy. That’s made the decision by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt to launch a surprise economic and diplomatic blockade against Qatar this month all the more surprising. On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at the diplomatic conflict between Qatar and its neighbors over funding of militant Islamic groups, the Al-Jazeera news network and relations with Iran.

How The Buzz Of Bees Could Predict Harvest Size For Farmers

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 20:07:13 +0000

See a bee; hear a buzz. That’s what researchers studying the declining bee population are banking on. A new technique based on recording buzzing bees hopes to show farmers just how much pollinating the native bee population is doing in their fields. Vegetable and fruit growers depend on pollinators to do a lot of work in their greenhouses and fields. Pollinators, like bees, flutter about the blossoms on plants and orchard trees, transferring pollen from plant to plant and ensuring that those organisms have a chance at reproducing.

Farm Your Yard: When a Weed is Not a Weed

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 16:13:10 +0000

GEORGE KENNEDY: You, Too, Can Help Feed the Hungry in Boone County

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 16:36:01 +0000

It’s one of the best things we do as a community, feeding our hungry neighbors. I hope you read the Missourian report Thursday in which Jiwon Choi described the summer programs that provide lunch for kids of all ages. The most troubling fact in that article, I thought, was that even with 19 locations in Columbia, the programs still leave children without enough to eat. You can consider this a follow-up. As penance for a career in journalism, I’ve been a volunteer at the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri for more than a dozen years. This week I had the opportunity to spend a couple of mornings at the Central Pantry, which is our main retail outlet. Located for about eight years on Big Bear Boulevard, the pantry is really a grocery store — with one important difference. Nobody pays... Read the complete column online at the Missourian.

GEORGE KENNEDY: 'Mostly Wonderful News' from Columbia's City Manager

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 20:47:00 +0000

Mike Matthes began his sixth State of the City address Wednesday by telling a packed City Council chamber that he was bringing “mostly wonderful news.” Both the adjective and the adverb proved accurate. He reported that Columbia is making progress on a number of important fronts . Poverty and unemployment are down and high school graduation is up, especially for black Columbians. New employers are coming to town. The airport is adding capacity and flights. He was clearly pleased with improvements he could report in the three sections of town targeted for attention in the “strategic plan” he proposed and the City Council adopted a couple of years ago . In those areas, where the minority population is concentrated, crime is down from the previous year in seven of eight categories... Read the complete column at the Missourian.
