"A Window into Agriculture's Future" (p. 1)
More headlines are heralding a growing crisis in global agriculture and food production.

Other Articles Featured in the July 2014 Issue
"America's Consumerism--Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of...Stuff?" (p. 6)
"Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" has become "life, liberty and the pursuit of stuff." The effects of this shift are evident in our overwhelmingly consumerist culture--and it is dragging down the nation.
"Egypt's Untapped Potential" (p. 9)
Pyramids, museums and sphinxes stand as a testament to the power Egypt once held. Yet many of these same cultural icons now sit vacant, unable to provide people a source of income--all because the country cannot find internal peace and stability. Why can Egypt not solve its own troubles and return to international prominence?
WEATHER & ENVIRONMENT:
"Lost Under City Lights" (p. 14)
Our dependence on electric light is firmly entrenched, with studies regarding its damaging effects usually unheeded. But one fact is indisputable: blotting out the stars with incandescent and fluorescent bulbs robs us of some of the most stunning vistas found in the human experience.
"Shinzo Abe--Prime Minister of Japan" (p. 18)
An old Japanese proverb states, "Drops of water will drill through a stone." It is exactly this type of tenacity that has placed Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the world spotlight.
"Did Jesus Teach Socialism?" (p. 22)
Millions of people believe Jesus would enact socialist policies because of His teachings about love and good will toward one's neighbor. Did He really advocate an early form of socialism during His time on Earth?

Four total lunar eclipses throughout the next year and a half have prompted the theory that the sun and the moon are God's way of communicating with mankind. What is the truth from the Bible?
WORLD NEWS DESK:
"Extreme Weather Pinches Food Budgets Across Globe" (p. 32)
From droughts in the United States and Brazil to excessively wet conditions in the United Kingdom to brushfires in Australia, extreme weather and its effects have helped push up the cost of many pantry staples.
"Tablets Negatively Affect Preschoolers' Motor Skills" (p. 33)
Young children entering preschool are adept at manipulating the touch-screen of a computer tablet--often surpassing the skills of their parents--but their abilities to stack building blocks or properly grasp a pen or pencil have been stunted in the process.
