An Urgent Plea for Help
The Nippon Foundation is urgently requesting donations to help
the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that recently struck
( http://www.nippon-foundation.or.jp/eng/news/EarthquakeDonations.html )
The damage wrought by the massive earthquake that struck Northeastern
Japan on March 11 has been devastating. Estimates already place
the dead and missing above ten thousand. People rendered homeless are
in the hundreds of thousands.
At the moment, there is little that untrained volunteers can do to help
on the ground. What we all can do right now, however, is to help raise
funds to support both the relief organizations currently working in the
affected areas, and the extensive reconstruction work that will follow.
The Nippon Foundation has extensive experience working with local
partners to provide support after disasters such as the Great Hanshin
Earthquake of 1995, and more recently the Mid Niigata Earthquake and
Noto Peninsula Earthquake. Our work has really brought home
the importance of non-governmental funding that allows civil society
to respond in a timely and flexible manner.
The Nippon Foundation/CANPAN Northeastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Relief Fund will provide effective, accountable, and timely support to
trusted partners working in the affected areas. To ensure the highest
degree of transparency, reports on the receipt and use of funds used
will be posted on The Nippon Foundation/CANPAN website.
Donations are now being accepted by credit card at 1,000 yen per share.
All donations will go to the victims of the earthquake.
We encourage you to not only donate, but to pass this mail along to as
many of your friends and family as you can. This disaster is going to
take all of our cooperation to overcome.

Using Food Science and Technology to Improve Nutrition and Promote National Development - IUFoST Food Science and Technology Handbook edited by Gordon L. Robertson and John R. Lupien
The IUFoST (International Union of Food Science & Technology) Handbook is now available online. It is intended to transmit useful information on applications of food science and technology to those affiliated to both developed and developing countries. The chapters are freely available for download to ensure the widest-possible audience:
The handbook is a work in progress and the editors are happy to continue to accept contributions from all those who feel that their experiences in this area are relevant and worth passing on to a wider audience. The ideal chapter would be a case study demonstrating how the application of food science and technology has lead to improvements in nutrition and food safety as well as promoting national development.
Potential contributors are invited to send a 500 word outline of their proposed chapter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your outline has been accepted, the final chapter will be due within 3 months. Chapters should be a minimum of 3000 and a maximum of 6000 words and include colour photographs.
