Kwanzaa: Honoring community

It was during the peak of the civil rights movement that the cultural holiday of Kwanza was born. Unlike other similar holidays such as Hanukah and Christmas, Kwanzaa is not based upon religious association. This holiday was created to celebrate the life and the heritage of African culture seen in African and Pan African communities around the world.

Don't forget food safety this holiday

Let the celebrating begin! During this time of year, our social calendars fill with meals with friends and family at favorite restaurants and at our own homes. We know that restaurants get a health inspection every year, but what about our own kitchen? Or the Christmas party at the boss's house?

Japan looks back

Japan is working hard at forgetting. Its prime minister, Shinzo Abe, suggests in code-talk that Japan was the victim of World War II - no war criminals at all, thank you - and its influential conservative press, with a wink from the government, is determined to whitewash the country's use of sex slaves during the war. This sort of thing can be catching. Maybe others will forget why they consider Japan a friend.
