Jazz on Film: Don Cheadle’s story w/ attitude 'Miles Ahead'

Apr 21, 2016

“If you’re going to tell a story, come with some attitude.”

Given the Passover Seder plate staples of brisket and matzoh, a fuller bodied red wine would be good, although we've always tried to let our customers choose whatever they want.  We do have red and white kosher wines.

Kosher wine has come a long way in the last five years with more modern wine making techniques, more care in the vineyard and more care in the cellar.  There is much more variety as well: pinot noir, sparkling, cabernet, chardonnay, white blends.

What has our food come to, when the simplest, most natural process for raising food seems special, unique, or groundbreaking? So it seems with the return to grass-fed dairy cows.  Nutrition educator Jonathan Clinthorne, who works with Natural Grocers, visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" to share the latest on "pasture-raised dairy."

"Fifty to 100 years ago, all cows were out on pasture their entire lives," said Clinthorne.  "Our entire agricultural system has changed so much in the last decade.  Confinement dairies feed cows corn and soy, grains."

April is Financial Literacy for Youth Month (so proclaimed by the U.S. Congress in 2003. One wonders if Tax Day is intentionally related...).  Certainly Americans' dismal savings rate (2.6 percent of gross national income, according to the Federal Reserve) and lagging retirement planning suggests we need to begin financial planning when people are young!

Cesar Chavez Peace and Justice Committee of Denver

This Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of the Cesar Chavez March in Denver.  Ramon Del Castillo from the Cesar Chavez Peace and Justice Committee of Denver called in to the "First Take with Lando and Chavis" morning show to discuss Chavez's legacy, and this year's honorees.

"We keep people motivated throughout the year, and we try to get into schools to educate youth about the work Cesar Chavez has done," said Del Castillo.
