Dearests! It’s (checks calendar) Wednesday! Don’t have much to say about that, just wanted to state it declaratively and with great enthusiasm in the hopes of setting a general tone for the day.

What’s in the meat we eat? Despite label claims, we don’t actually know - and we don’t know that we don’t know. 70 percent of sales of “medically important antibiotics” are sold to the meat industry, while “antibiotic-free” or “organic” labels are based on producer assertions and are rarely, if ever, validated by testing. And in 2019, the WHO declared antimicrobial resistance one of the top ten threats to global health. But happy to share that, “One of the most recognizable names in meat (Bay Area rancher Bill Niman) is now turning his attention to yet another mission: testing and labeling meat for antibiotics.” So I know I normally don’t talk about my clients here, but it’s been SO illuminating to work with the FoodID team over the past month on their launch, and it’s definitely made me turn a very critical eye to the meat I purchase and consume, so I had to share the SF Chronicle article about what they’re working on. And you can learn more about FoodID’s work here.

This article on dating in 2020 says that daters interviewed on their post-COVID courting habits ditched the masks with their potential paramour, unless strangers were around. First off, social shame pressures FTW. Secondly, listen to the wise words of one of the subjects: “It doesn’t make someone safe just because you like them.”

That’s it, that’s all! Be kind to yourself, and please wear a mask!
