The end of organic food market?Organic food has become a popular choice health-conscious Britons. As the credit crunch hits, people may abandon organics a cheaper alternative. some time now, there has been a growing market in Britain organic food. But with the credit crunch cing thrifty shoppers to cut back and with food prices generally rocketing, could our love organics be starting to wilt?During her pregnancy with Amelia, Pen Turnbull made sure every item of food she bought was organic. But recently, like other shoppers we spoke to, that’s changed. “Especially with sort of store cupped-type foods, so cereals and honey and things like that. I’m no longer buying organic and trying to keep the fruit and vegetables mainly organic.” “And anecdotally your all friends, people you know, other moms, is it a similar scenario?”“Yeah, definitely in the playgroups and NCT meetings that everybody’s starting to notice the difference.”Figures compiled Sky News show the organics market has grown steadily over the last decade. This year, April is the first month to show a downturn on the year bee. But what will be really telling is what happens to organic sales in the months to come.The fact is organic food is generally more expensive. Take chicken example. We worked out the average price of two chicken breasts weighing 500 grams from the Big Four supermarkets. The organic option would cost you 8.5 pounds, the next best thing; the premium version would set you back 6. pounds. While the value chicken, one of the meal stuff, would cost 3.68 pounds. So have the super markets noticed any difference of the tilts?“I think the interesting thing to watch over the next year is the rate of that growth compared to previous years, where we are seeing price becoming a much bigger factor than it's been in previous years.”Advocates of the organic movement say retailers have yet to report any falloff in sales. And despite the critics, they believe organic farming can still feed the world. “The main thing that's driving up the price of food in the long run is the price of oil, because most food is produced from oil-based fertilizer. Organic food's produced from the sun’s energy. So actually, organic food is less prone to these price rises than non-organic food.” But with food inflation ecast to rise even higher, the proof in the organic pudding will be what happens at the check-outs over the next few months.Catherine Jacob, Sky News.WORDS IN THE NEWS1. credit crunchA "credit crunch" is a recessionary period in a debt-based monetary system where growth in debt money (or "credit") has slowed and subsequently causes a drying up of liquidity in an economy. 088人的一生,就像一趟旅行,每个人都坐在时间的列车上,有了起点,便不知道哪一站是终点...这个世界也因为充满了爱而更加美丽多姿! 可你发觉了吗?You don’t expect your child to grow up to be a heroin addict. From the moment of her birth, you have hopes and dreams about the future, but they never include heroin addiction. That couldn’t happen to your child, because addiction is the result of a bad environment, bad parenting. There is most definitely someone or something to blame.That’s what I used to believe. But after failed rehab and long periods of separation from my heroin-addicted daughter, after years of holding my breath, waiting another relapse, I now believe there is no blame.After Katie admitted her addiction, I struggled to understand how this could have happened to my daughter — a bright, beautiful, talented and most importantly, loved young woman. When the initial shock wore off, I analyzed and inventoried all the whys and hows of Katie’s addiction. I searched someone or something to blame. I blamed her friends. I blamed her dad. I blamed our divorce. But mostly, I blamed myself. My desperate heart convinced me that I should have prevented Katie’s addiction, and that given another chance, I could correct my mistakes.When Katie came home from rehab, I approached each day with the zeal of a drill sergeant. I championed the -step program and monitored her improvement daily as though curing heroin addiction was as simple as nursing a cold. I drove her to therapy sessions and AA meetings. I controlled everything and left nothing to chance. But in spite of my efts, Katie didn’t get better. She left my home, lost again to the powerful grip of addiction.In the long days, weeks and months that followed, I gathered bits and pieces of old beliefs and tried to assemble them into something whole. Sometimes I gave up, and sometimes I simply let go. Gradually, my search blame changed to a longing hope. I comted myself with the only thing that still connected me to my daughter: love.I thought about Katie every day, and I missed her. I cried, and worried about her safety and whereabouts. I wrote letters I knew she’d never see. Sometimes I woke up panicked in the middle of the night, certain that my mother’s intuition was preparing me something bad. But through it all, I loved her.I don’t know why or how my daughter became addicted to heroin; I do know that it doesn’t really matter. Life goes on, and Katie is still my daughter.Katie and I meet breakfast on Friday mornings now. We drink coffee and talk. I don’t try to heal her. I just love her. Sometimes there is pain and sorrow, but there is no blame. I believe there is only love. 97
