Each Sunday in April will have a different poetry theme, and since the first one landed on April Fools Day, yesterday’s storytime was all about playful and silly poetry. Another nursery rhyme, but adapted in the form of a picture book with illustrations by one of my favorites, Janet Stevens. When I was looking for fun activities for kids to do during poetry month, I came across the idea of making a Poet Tree or Poetree, which I thought would be a great way to display children’s poetry at the library.
To make Poetree leaves, I used old blank stationary cards, fabric, poems, ribbon, scissors, a hole-punch, tape, and leaf stencils I made from cardstock. Before storytime I typed up and printed out a variety of poems, mostly about reading and books and poetry and cut them out. After storytime, the kids picked out a poem they liked and glued it or taped it on one side of the card.
If You Eat Fish, You're Probably Getting Ripped OffSeafood fraud hurts consumers and fishermen.
That's because, in addition to running his Madeira Beach seafood operation, DeLaCruz is the executive director of a nonprofit conservation agency called Gulf Wild. Tilapia mislabeled as grouper can cost the consumer $4 more per eight-ounce fillet at the grocery store, and $12 extra per fillet at a restaurant.
It's common in the food industry to boost profits by misleading customers about an animal's origins, but this kind of fraud is especially rampant when it comes to seafood.
Gulf Wild started in 2010, as the farm-to-table movement encouraged people to find out where their food came from. In 2015, a presidential task force proposed requiring importers to produce traceability data for the 16 species most often fished and sold illegally. We in Northern Illinois are now entering the primetime of tomato planting season and so if you would like to grow tomatoes or peppers in containers there are a few things to consider. The soil should be a mix of good garden soil along with compost along with a little sand to improve drainage. There are many tomato varieties out there that have been bred especially for use in a container. An heirloom variety of tomato that I have found does well in a container setting is Green Zebra.
Plans to set up a single jail that would house all Islamic terrorists under one roof are expected to be backed by Ministers.
The jail would hold all 131 Islamist inmates convicted of terror offences in a single secure unit. The plan is reportedly supported by a review commissioned by Justice Secretary Michael Gove. The Ministry of Justice has denied plans to create such a prison but ministers are expected to back the idea of segregating them, in an approach similar to the French penal system. At the moment, dangerous inmates are dispersed across six prisons, which include units in Durham, York, Worcestershire, West Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and London.


The prison would hold notorious terrorists currently serving sentences such as Mohammed Rehman and Ahmed Khan, who both planned to kill hundreds of civilians by blowing up Westfield shopping centre and the London Underground.

The Lawrence Public Library teamed with the The Lawrence Arts Center for “Poetry Off the Page“, a month of poetry themed activities of which Sunday Storytime is a part of! Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham, but my co-worker and storytime mentor encouraged me to read Horton instead.
The branches were tied together with twine and I had a co-worker help pour sand into the trashcan while I held the branches upright. I didn’t have to do this, but I have kids from 2-10 at storytime and this makes it easier on the little ones (and the caregivers). The six men work quickly to grade the day's catch, plopping each fish into sturdy cardboard vats layered with ice.
By affixing a data tag onto the gill of each fish, Gulf Wild captains provide consumers with details about the location of the catch, which boat pulled it in and with what gear, and even the quality of the water it swam in. But for Gulf Wild's 50 or so boat captains, the extra steps are worth it, part of a growing effort to combat seafood fraud.
From 2010 to 2012, the conservation agency Oceana conducted DNA tests on seafood in 21 states and found that one-third of the samples had been mislabeled. Today, noted chefs like Mario Batali and Sean Brock and grocery stores like Wegmans and Whole Foods will only purchase traceable fish and shellfish. According to officials with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, global seafood fraud depresses prices for law-abiding seafood operations—resulting in $10-$20 billion in annual losses.
The flavor of the home grown fruit of Solanum lycopersicum is far and above anything one can pick up at the local supermarket. This is especially true if you use a plastic container, such as a bucket or a storage container or tote.  Feed the plants with any fertilizer labeled for tomatoes but keep in mind that the leaching rate will be faster in soil kept in a container. These varieties will of course do well in a container setting, but many heirloom or hybrid varieties will also do well and should be tried.  Determinate varieties will grow better if you also have limited height in the spot that you are planting the tomatoes, such as on a balcony.
Bonnie Plants seems to have cornered the market in live garden plants at all of the big box stores so this variety is not hard to find. They need even watering to ensure that fruit will not rot and keep in mind what was said above about what material the container is mad from. Just because you do not have a lot of space or a backyard to grow tomatoes does not mean that you can’t still grow your own! I have a tower of books on my nightstand, paint under my fingernails, and the wild earth between my toes.


Which is too bad, since, as many fishermen will reiterate, consumers are the ones who influence the market. For apartment dwellers or others who are spatially challenged as far as land for small scale tomato production is concerned, you are in luck. If you are growing your tomatoes on a patio or a place with no such restrictions then you can use any type of plant as you can stake the plants, or use wire cages,  as you would in a traditional garden or field. The seed for Tiny Tim are getting harder to find for some reason and it has been nonexistent in garden centers lately. The fruits of this plant can be over one pound each so it would be advisable to cage this plant in a sturdy container.
Which means over that past few weeks I’ve been compiling poetry books, crafts, and activities to do throughout the month in celebration.
Getting ripped off isn't the only problem: Imported shellfish could be the product of slavery or harbor illegal antibiotic residues.
With electronic tags, says DeLaCruz, the people buying and eating seafood "are getting a foothold back. For there are many varieties of tomatoes, as well as many other vegetables, that can be grown in a very small space or even a container. A three gallon container is probably the smallest type container to use, but with a five gallon or larger container you will probably do better.  The container should allow for drainage so if whatever container you use does not have drainage holes, holes should be drilled into the bottom. It produces well and like many hybrids it is resistant to fusarium wilt (F), alternaria stem canker (A), and gray leaf spot (St). This being said, you may still want to stake or cage them as they both will produce large amounts of fruit. It is resistant to verticillium wilt (V), fusarium wilt races 1 and 2 (F), nematodes, and tobacco mosaic virus (T). I mean… how can you have a funny poetry storytime without the king of whimsy and rhyme? Most customers can't tell the difference, but mislabeling hurts people at both ends of the supply chain: Tilapia mislabeled as grouper can cost the consumer $4 more per eight-ounce fillet at the grocery store, and $12 extra per fillet at a restaurant. A pregnant woman steering clear of mercury-laden tilefish, for instance, might inadvertently eat some when she thought she'd ordered snapper. Again, keep in mind that a container made of wood or other porous material will allow for water to evaporate faster than a plastic container would. The tomatoes produced by both of these varieties are excellent in sauces and I also like them in salad as well. Better Boy is an indeterminate variety and is resistant to verticillium wilt (V), fusarium wilt (F), and nematodes (N). And fishermen who respect conservation quotas wind up selling true grouper at a deflated price.
