Gabrielle Glaser

"I grew up in Tangent, Oregon, the Grass Seed Capital of the World (pop. 440). I spent my teenage summers driving John Deere combines on my family farm, listening to an unusual mix of local radio programming: the BeeGees, Marvin Gaye, Johnny Cash, and NPR. I was an indifferent member of my local 4-H sewing club, and my nearest neighbors were my grandparents. After high school, I attended Stanford University, where I received a bachelor's and master's degree in history. I started my journalistic career as a news assistant at The New York Times in Washington, D.C.. I worked as a reporter at the Associated Press in Baltimore, Maryland, and Warsaw, Poland. From Eastern Europe, I also reported for The Economist, The Dallas Morning News, The Village Voice, and National Public Radio. Since the late 1990s, I have examined social, cultural, and national health trends for The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, Health, and The Oregonian in Portland, where I was a staff writer. I worked as a "County Lines" columnist at The New York Times, and my work has appeared in many publications, including The New York Times Magazine, Glamour, Mademoiselle, and ScientificAmerican.com. I taught feature writing at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and won the Missouri Lifestyle Journalism award for my groundbreaking work exploring international and interracial adoption, "Sending Black Babies North." Before Her Best-Kept Secret, I wrote Strangers to the Tribe: Portraits of Interfaith Marriage, and The Nose: A Profile of Sex, Beauty, and Survival. "

MYTH: Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) prevents drug use


Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) has been very popular for sev- eral decades, and the program uses police officers to teach children lessons aimed at preventing drug abuse (including alcohol abuse). The program has traditionally focused on children in fifth and sixth grade, but more recently the prevention efforts of DARE have expanded to children of a broader age range (including children in kindergarten). Despite the popularity of DARE, research has consistently shown that it is not effective across several studies [20]. In a critique of DARE, Lynam et al. [21] point out that DARE advo- cates often argue that these studies examined an out-of-date version of DARE and that there is now a newer DARE curriculum. Although this is a possibility, it is very reasonable to be skeptical of DARE until research pro- vides support for the newer curriculum.

 APNewsBreak: Ringling Bros. eliminating elephant act

For 35 years PETA has protested Ringling Bros.’ cruelty to elephants. PETA also caught Ringling’s abuse on video and released photos of its violent baby elephant training to the world. We know extreme abuse to these majestic animals occurs every single day, so if Ringling is really telling the truth about ending this horror, it will be a day to pop the champagne corks, and rejoice.  However, many of the elephants are painfully arthritic, and many have tuberculosis, so their retirement day needs to come now. Three years is too long for a mother elephant separated from her calf, too long for a baby elephant beaten with the sharp fireplace-poker like weapons called bullhooks that Ringling handlers use routinely, too long for an animal who roams up to 30 miles a day in the wild to be kept in shackles. If the decision is serious, then the circus needs to do it NOW.

“I’d go vegan, but I just can’t give up cheese.”

Indeed – the lure of cheese is strong, and many of us have fallen to its siren call. We hope to be able to answer that call with the most delectable whole-foods, plant-based cheeses in the world! Our products were created by Miyoko Schinner, who embarked on a mission to recreate the range of flavors and textures she had once enjoyed from dairy cheeses before becoming vegan. Several years of experimentation culminated in the publication of her groundbreaking book, Artisan Vegan Cheese(Book Publishing Co., 2012), which she hoped would inspire others to make their own.

Despite the success of the book, people frequently requested that she simply make and sell them. She knew that in order to succeed, she would need a passionate business partner with whom to launch and grow the business. She soon met Lisa Shanower, and the two of them embarked on their cheese journey to create Miyoko’s Kitchen. The two of them assembled an amazing team of passionate vegans with expertise in different areas, and Miyoko’s Kitchen was born!
