What small, everyday actions can we do to improve the distribution of food?
Thanks! Now, regarding the terms "effective and consistent", I liked what Simon Moss said during his talk (link above). He comments that it would be interesting to ask the people involved in fund-raising for charities: "Ask them what success looks like (... ) ask them how they know when they've failed, and what they're going to do about it." I wonder what do you think about that? How would you identify such organizations?

Michael Merzenich: Growing evidence of brain plasticity
This man represents an example of a growing group of scientists who are pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Not only he leads a very productive group in basic science (mainly studying neuronal plasticity un the rat auditory cortex), their insights now are being extrapolated to clinical settings. A great example of translational research!
