In a lofty address that at times resembled a campaign speech, the chief executive of Wal-Mart Stores, H. Lee Scott, said that “we live in a time when people are losing confidence in the ability of government to solve problems.” But Wal-Mart, he said, “does not wait for
someone else to solve problems.” Mr. Horowitz said Wal-Mart had room
to improve, however. Its next goal, he said, should be to stop selling the least
energy-efficient products, rather than simply introducing better models.

NationofChange was formed in 2009 by Donna Luca. As an active philanthropist with 25 years’ experience in educational and environmental causes, she recognized that concerned people needed an easy way to get informed and involved to make changes on the issues that mattered most to them. To address this need, Ms. Luca brought savvy technologists and intrepid independent journalists together to shape NationofChange. Today, funded entirely by mostly small reader donations, NationofChange provides a progressive platform that empowers individuals to create on-the-ground social, environmental, and economic change, one action at a time.
Romesco sauce is simply an almond, garlic, and roasted pepper-scented puree that hails from Catalan, in the northeastern part of Spain along the Mediterranean coast. It’s a classic. [Editor's Note: A vegan classic.] You can spread it on grilled bread, use it as a dip for roasted or grilled vegetables, or eat it right from the spoon.–Kim O’Donnel
