OAKLAND (CBS SF) – Food not only nourishes the body, but feeds the soul and soul food/comfort food certainly does both. My kids and I dined at Home of Chicken and Waffles (HCW) in Jack London Square and immediately I thought of Roscoe’s. After speaking to the owner, Derrick Johnson, I learned that his father was the owner of Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles based in Los Angeles.
Yes HCW is a restaurant and has comfort food with a full bar, but is also a down home mainstay since 2004 and part of the revitalization of downtown Oakland. I had “Angie’s Delight” 1 succulent breast 1 delicious waffle and grits. My son had a waffle and a hot chocolate, He is 11 and a connoisseur of both and was extremely pleased. My teenaged daughter ordered off menu and had a waffle and two pieces of chicken and let’s just…

A very Happy New Year to everyone!
Last week (and indeed last year) I gave you this box of bones and one non-bony object, dug up on the Isle of Sheppey to identify:
Everyone correctly spotted that the bones were canid (and by everyone I mean Ric Morris, witcharachne, Jake, Paleotool, Allen Hazen and Sam Misan), either Dog or possibly Fox, as suggested by Sam Misan.

So we have a Dog in the box, but the non-bony object has posed more of a challenge:

Two weeks after a Taliban attack on a local school killed 147 people, 136 of them children, the Pakistani city of Peshawar is still raw with grief and fear.
The capital city of the restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (or the North-West Frontier Province as it used to be known) often finds itself in the front line of the 10-year-old Taliban insurgency and has witnessed appalling bloodshed.
But the Dec. 16 attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar surpassed even those standards of horror. It was the worst single terrorist attack in the history of a country that, according to the Global Terrorism Index, is the world’s most affected by terrorism after Iraq and Afghanistan.
Authorities have beefed-up security in the face of the school carnage, and in response to threats of similar attacks from the Taliban. Checkpoints have been stepped up on roads into the city. Surprise swoops netted 1,200…

Whether through digital channels, print or on exhibit, the impact, influence and reach of the still image has never been greater. But with so many images fighting for our attention, how do photographers make work that most effectively stands out and connects with an audience. In this seven-part series, TIME looks back over the past 12 months to identify some of the ways of seeing—whether conceptually, aesthetically or through dissemination—that have grabbed our attention and been influential in maintaining photography’s relevance in an ever shifting environment, media landscape, and culture now ruled by images.
From Stills to Motion
The moving image has become a defacto aspect of today’s photography landscape, with B-roll, behind-the-scenes videos of photo shoots and requests for photographers to shoot video as well as stills.
But this year some photographers found a way to preserve the conceit of the still image while extending its form to video…
