Julia Louis-Dreyfus Is Street Smart In 'Reality Bites' By Tiffany Nicholson For Porter Edit April 19, 2019

Emmy Award-winning actor and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is crystal clear about one thing: going through six rounds of chemotherapy helped her straighten out all her life priorities. The beloved ‘Seinfeld’ star covers the April 19 issue of Porter Edit, reflecting on the last season for her fictional vice president Selina Meyer.

Louis-Dreyfus, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2017, went very public with her disease. The actor felt the weight of knowing that 200 people who fearful about their Veep jobs were worried about both her and their own lifelihoods.

Eating Insects Has Long Made Sense in Africa. The World Must Catch Up.

Scientists have long proposed insects as feed or foodstuff for animals. But views about entomophagy differ widely: food conscious lobbies and scientists promote insects as novel foods while at the other extreme people view eating insects as crazy. Between those two extremes are communities that have been practising entomophagy for ages.

‘Too Many Elephants’ in Africa? Here’s How Peaceful Coexistence with Human Communities Can Help

‘Too Many Elephants’ in Africa? Here’s How Peaceful Coexistence with Human Communities Can Help

Africa’s elephant population has plummeted from roughly a million in 1970 to around 400,000 today – a decline which is largely blamed on poaching for their ivory tusks. At its peak in 2011, poaching claimed 36,000 elephants a year, or one every 15 minutes.

Many of us are familiar with these statistics thanks to campaigns to end the ivory trade. But with our attention focused on poaching, an arguably greater threat to Africa’s elephants has emerged. In the time that Africa’s elephant population has crashed, its human population has boomed. The number of people living in Africa has doubled since 1982, reaching a billion in 2009, and is expected to double again by 2050.

To feed and house this growing population, natural habitats have been fragmented by roads and railways and entire swathes have been converted to farmland and settlements. As a result, Africa’s elephants have been squeezed into smaller and increasingly isolated pockets of land. It’s very possible that the future for all of Africa’s elephants will resemble what is currently seen in South Africa.
