“On earth peace, goodwill toward men,” sang the angels on the first Christmas morning. The Hebrew word for peace is shalom. In Judaism shalom is a living concept, not a word; a vision for how ...
Everyone had reservations when it was announced Peter Jackson would be splitting up “The Hobbit” into a trilogy. Do we really need three separate movies? Can’t this 300-page book be done in one movie? Isn’t this just a ploy to milk a franchise and make an extra couple billion dollars? When “An Unexpected Journey” finally came out last December, we all found that these initial concerns were pretty much spot-on.

It was the time of day when afternoon starts to creep into evening at the end of an average Arizona October; the sun still lorded over the earth and kept the surface dwellers warm to a slightly uncomfortable degree.
“No need to be sad Sen. McCain. People still remember your running for president and the elevator you had installed for your car. Also in the ready room of every US Military airbase I’m sure there is a poster of you in your flight suit with the inscription — ‘hey blank-blank these things are expensive, Don’t McCain your plane!’ ”
An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for.

RIO DE JANEIRO — It's bad enough that so few people outside Brazil know much about the country's cuisine. But Alex Atala finds it particularly galling that even at home it rarely gets the respect it deserves.
This 2011 photo released by Lotus PR shows banana, lime and priprioca caramel ravioli in Brazil. Enter "D.O.M.: Rediscovering Brazilian Ingredients," a new cookbook that chef Alex Atala hopes will propel Brazilian food onto the world's culinary stage. The book is chock-full of strange, surprising and downright bizarre ingredients, from the Brazilian sea snail, which Atala says are tastier and less fatty than their North American cousin, to the "priprioca," an aromatic herb that’s described as tasting like a cross between vanilla and earth, to "tucupi," a pickling agent that’s made from fermented manioc root juice.
