Reducing waste happens before the landfill.
We Americans produce over 4 pounds of garbage per person each day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. This adds up to 29 pounds per week and 1,600 pounds a year. What happens to all that trash?
Most garbage haulers dump the garbage at a transfer station. Recyclables are sorted mainly by hand, on a conveyer belt. Plastics, particularly numbers 1-7, are crushed and baled by a "Wall-e" type machine that produces perfect cubes.

Labor Day always triggers memories of the two most important hourly wage earners in my life: my mother and my father. My dad's hard hat and lunch pail and my mom's nurse's aide badge are prominently displayed in my home office. They are reminders of a debt I can never repay. Like so many working-class parents, my mother and father wore their bodies out to build far different lives for their children.

Just as Peeps and chocolate bunnies are de rigueur in Easter baskets, so is a leg o' lamb or a half ham the quintessential centerpiece for a spring feast. And because these meats are holiday fare, they need to be dolled up in their prettiest — and tastiest — finery.
For ham, you want it to shine bright with fruity glazes. As the good editors at America's Test Kitchen say, "A cured ham without a shiny, sweet glaze is like a hug without a squeeze: incomplete."

THE VEGETARIAN SLOW COOKER
: Over 200 Delicious Recipes by Judith Finlayson
“To me, there’s more to using a slow cooker than just putting food on the table. In my opinion, the meals it allows you to prepare nourish both body and soul. There are few experiences more pleasurable than coming home to be greeted by the appetizing aroma of a meal simmering in the kitchen.”

Has there ever been a time when 18-term liberal Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman's nostrils weren't flaring indignantly at corporate executives and entrepreneurs? The man wields his gavel over the free market like a Damoclean sword. He throws the weight of his congressional chairmanship around like a sumo wrestler walking across hot stones. For more than 35 years, Waxman has made it his taxpayer-funded business to use the power of government to undermine private business.

By now, millions of people around the world have viewed the video showing a middle-aged guy taunting an older man with Parkinson's disease at a protest in Columbus, Ohio, over health care reform.
That's how it works in these days of YouTube and the World Wide Web. A healthy man picks on someone who's disabled and, before you know it, students in Hong Kong are posting a video of ugly America on Facebook.

On April 1st, April Fools Day, a giant crane lifted the railroad car from its habitat near the Rochelle Ave railroad crossing. It was being transported to a new resting place after being sold to new owners. The railroad car dated back to the 1900’s. The familiar landmark will be missed.

From Jazz guitar legend to soul-vocalist extraordinaire, eight-time Grammy winner George Benson is back at bergenPAC. Enjoy his songs from his 1976 hit “Breezin’” to such hits as “On Broadway” and “Give Me the Night.”
At various points along the four-decade continuum of George Benson’s career, he has been heralded as a jazz guitarist of unparalleled chops, a vocalist with great emotional range and sophistication or a combination of both. However, he regards himself as an entertainer in the broadest sense of the word – a singer of songs, a spinner of tales.
