The REAL Situation

It's no secret that Jersey Shore is a guilty pleasure of mine. Check out this spoof from FunnyOrDie of Mike "The Situation," Snookie, and Pauly D doing their thing.

Bodega Talk

Thursday, January 07, 2010 | |

Where does the food in your bodega — or the corner grocer, the local minimart — come from? Who decides whether to stock tortilla chips or salad greens, and how much they'll cost? How come it's easier to find fresh fruits and vegetables in Brooklyn Heights than in the South Bronx? What's the connection between the incidence of diabetes and the food market supply chain?

Last year the Brooklyn-based Center for Urban Pedagogy set out to answer these questions, and the result is Bodega Down Bronx, a 29-minute video created by CUP staff in collaboration with local high school students at New Settlement's Bronx Helpers, a service learning organization focused on civic engagement.
