Letter From The Editor: Leadership & vaccination resistance


Here’s a spoiler alert. I like vaccinations.

Two of my friends growing up, one with mean leg braces and the other confined to a wheelchair, were polio victims. I’ll be celebrating World Polio Day on Oct . 24, and I was happy to learn that we’ve achieved a 99.9 percent worldwide reduction in polio cases over the past three decades. The area  preventing total eradication of polio — the wild poliovirus areas of Afghanistan and Pakistani

Then there is sub-Saharan Africa where a half million people, mostly children, die each year from Malaria where the new RTS S Malaria vaccine is a “game-changer” and the “the most exciting news in years.” Vaccinations are important to food safety for everything from protecting food servers from hepatitis A to preventing animal diseases.

A Crunchy-Creamy Red Bean and Walnut Snack Cake Recipe to Welcome Autumn

Leah Nash/Eater

Inspired by the Korean treat hodu-gwaja, these snack cakes can be baked in a trusty, run-of-the-mill muffin pan

For October’s cake installment, I developed a batch of muffin-shaped, red bean-filled cakes as a nod to a hodu-gwaja, a Korean treat that translates as “walnut cake/cookie.” The soft, bite-size balls are filled with walnuts and red bean paste, and dangerously easy to eat in … Read more
