You have probably noticed that the big event of the day at the network was the Food Passion Day, and I hope you take some time to read some or many or most or all of those posts.

You may also have noticed on the right sidebar that we have a new Video Of The Week.

And not everything today was about food and agriculture. Here are some posts on other subjects - food for the mind, not just the body:

- Bora Zivkovic - Weekly Highlights #4 – Amber Williams


- Alex Wild - Thrifty Thursday: The Magic DNA Machine


- George Musser - Could Hackers Break Into Your Electric Meter?


- S.E. Gould - The good and the evil of antibiotics.


- Davide Castelvecchi - Fox Commentator Distorts Physics


- Michelle Clement - Links – August 11, 2011 #SciAmBlogs Food Day edition.
