Over-consumption over nine of the past 15 years has depleted grain storehouses worldwide, and rising gas prices affect all food prices by increasing the cost of shipping. Gas prices also make it expensive for volunteers to commute to the charities, according to Delores Zuniga, director of the Lord's...

By David Kronke Joel McHale hosts "The Soup," E!'s weekly whistling past the boneyard of pop culture. We're ensconced at the TV critics' semiannual press tour in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

By Valerie Vinyard, The Arizona Daily Star, Tucson Jun. 25--C.K. Chan gently placed the Vietnamese pepper beef on our table at Cafe Pacific restaurant. "We're the only restaurant in Tucson to serve this dish," he said with pride. Then the 69-year-old smoothly demonstrated the ways to eat the dish: Wrapped up in the crisp leaves of green lettuce, with crumbled shrimp toasts. Or piled onto the shrimp toasts. Or set aside the accouterments and simply indulge in the meat itself. Chan...
