    Farmers' Markets are Beloved, but the Government May Cut Their Funding | Civil Eats
    America's current farm bill expires at the end of September 2018, leaving less than a year before lawmakers could begin to make cuts to a variety of federal programs affecting food and farming. And, despite America's growing love for farmers' markets, it's looking unlikely that the Farmer Markets Promotion Program (FMPP) will be prioritized in the coming bill.

Is a reverse mortgage the way to finance a project to make your home more age-friendly? As a homeowner age 55+, you may be considering a HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage), aka a “reverse mortgage.” You’ve seen the ads with famous people promoting them, but you may have also heard horror stories. As more people retire, HECMs are expected to become more popular. But, is it right for you?

    A Black Woman, Steel Worker, and Artist, Through the Eyes of LaToya Ruby Frazier
    The photographer LaToya Ruby Frazier can capture the decline of an entire economy, the vulnerable cycles of American industry, within a single human face. Like the documentarians Dorothea Lange and Gordon Parks before her, she scales down social upheaval to the intimate, modest scale of portraiture.
