You dig up ground, plant crops, raise animals and harvest their milk and eggs, decoration and customize your farm, and sell your stuff for a profit. The controls are easy enough and there is a metric ton of content to unlock and play with. The basic premise does get repetitive after some time.

Farmed fish bad
On the very first page of The End of Animal Farming, author Jacy Reese makes it clear that the book is not about why animal farming is bad. There have been plenty of books chronicling the damage caused by factory farms, but his book is about how to solve animal farming itself. Technology will be a big part of the answer, says Reese, an animal rights activist and research director at the Sentience Institute. Scientific advances have already brought us the plant-based Impossible Burger and the first lab-grown burger, but we have a ways to go before we can permanently switch to cultured meat. The Verge spoke to Reese about technological advancements, why companies like Tyson are investing in alternative meat, and why we shouldn’t expect to switch to cultured meat by next year. This interview has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity. The push to end animal farming has been happening for a very long time. What’s happening now that you believe will lead to the end of … [Read more...] about These are the technology advances that could end animal farming

Industrial beef and farmed catfish take the biggest toll on the environment, while small fish caught in the wild and farmed shellfish and mollusks cause the least damage, a study had found.Researchers used the standard of producing 40 grams of protein — the daily recommended protein serving — as the base for looking at four different metrics of how various types of production of different foods impact the environment. The four metrics were the amount of energy used, emissions of greenhouse gases, the potential for contribution of excessive chemicals — in the form of nutrients, such as fertilizers — to the environment, and the potential to contribute to acid rain by emitting specific … [Read more...] about Industrial Beef, Farmed Catfish Worst Foods For Environmental Impact, Study Finds
Even after winter storms left East Coast harbors thick with ice, some of the country's top chefs and trendy restaurants were offering sushi-grade tuna billed as pulled in fresh off the coast of New York. But it was just an illusion. No tuna was landing there. The fish had long since migrated to warmer waters. In a global industry plagued by fraud and deceit, conscientious consumers are increasingly paying top dollar for what they believe is local, sustainably caught seafood. But even in this fast-growing niche market, companies can hide behind murky supply chains that make it difficult to determine where any given fish comes from. That's where national distributor Sea To Table stepped in, guaranteeing its products were wild and directly traceable to a U.S. dock — and sometimes the very boat that brought it in. However, an Associated Press investigation found the company was linked to some of the same practices it vowed to fight. Preliminary DNA tests suggested some of its … [Read more...] about “Locally caught” fish costs top dollar, but isn’t always local
ROBIN MCDOWELL, MARGIE MASON and MARTHA MENDOZA, Associated Press Updated 2:17 pm, Wednesday, June 13, 2018 Now Playing: An Associated Press investigation has found that Sea To Table, a key player in the sustainable food movement, has untrue information in the sourcing of its locally-caught tuna. (June 13) Media: Associated Press MONTAUK, N.Y. (AP) — Caterers in Washington tweeted a photo of maroon sashimi appetizers served to 700 guests attending the governor's inaugural ball last year. They were told the tuna was from Montauk. But it was an illusion. It was the dead of winter and no yellowfin had been landed in the New York town. An Associated Press investigation traced the supply chain of national distributor Sea To Table to other parts of the world, where fishermen described working under slave-like conditions with little regard for marine life. In a global seafood industry plagued by deceit, conscientious consumers will pay top dollar for what they … [Read more...] about AP Investigation: Local fish isn’t always local
