I’m on vacation on Cape Cod this summer, staying with my parents in the house where I grew up. Most days, we walk, bike or drive to the homemade ice cream shop down the hill. My chocolate sundae tasted especially sweet a few days ago because I received a $1 bill in change with intriguing red, stamped markings. “Track This Bill” said the stamp, like a mystery message from Lewis Carroll, followed by a URL for the website www.wheresgeorge.com. But oh joy! Unlike Alice puzzling over the White Rabbit’s invitation, I knew just what to do. The “point” of that website — if there is something as prosaic as a point here — is to upload and track individual paper bills as they move around the country. My ice cream store-acquired bill with serial number G55907542H (2006) had been first entered into the WheresGeorge website 35 days earlier in upstate New York. For each bill “found” and uploaded by another person, the site reports the … [Read more...] about Do you know where your dollars have been?
Uma Sharma, provided by Published 11:00 am CDT, Monday, July 1, 2019 Nearly two thirds of Americans drink coffee every day, but many don't know where the coffee beans come from. If you sip your morning joe from major brands like Starbucks, Dunkin', or McDonald's, chances are it comes from one of several countries in Latin America. Companies source from different regions to reduce risk, maintain a steady supply of beans in different seasons, and serve different flavors to their customers (different countries tend to produce beans with different flavors).

Following is a transcript of the video. Narrator: Six out of 10 American adults drink a cup of coffee every day. And many of them come from Starbucks, Dunkin’, Tim Hortons, or McDonald’s: four of the most popular coffee spots in the country. But where in the world does all of this coffee come from? Starbucks sources its coffee from more than 30 countries in the three major growing regions of the world. The company’s breakfast and house blends come from Latin America. And their popular Pike Place roast comes from Colombia and Brazil. After sourcing the beans, Starbucks roasts them in the US and then distributes them among more than 14,000 stores nationwide. And then there’s Dunkin’. Like Starbucks, much of Dunkin’s coffee comes from Latin America. These countries include Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru. Once the beans arrive stateside, Dunkin’ roasts them in one of seven facilities and then brews … [Read more...] about This animated map shows where your favourite coffee comes from
Race appears to trump ethnicity when it come to predicting wealth, according to a new report examining the economic disparities among Miami's diverse population. The report, released this week by Ohio State University, Duke University and the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, compared the net worth of nonimmigrant black people in the United States and those with ties to Puerto Rico, Cuba and other parts of the Caribbean and Latin America with white people and Latinos who identified as white or other on Census forms. Among the most provocative findings: Identifying as black or white was a bigger factor than ancestry or ethnicity in determining net worth, said Darrick Hamilton, an economist who co-authored the report and leads the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State.Descendants of black Americans, Afro-Caribbeans -- primarily Haitians, Jamaicans, Trinidadians and Tobagonians -- and black Latinos were more economically similar than … [Read more...] about In Miami, your skin color is a better predictor of wealth than where your ancestors came from
