What does Sudoku mean?

There are lots of theories as to what this means, but most state that this is an abbreviation of a sudoku term.

Loosely translated, it seems to be something about numerals that can go only in a single place.

This is because 'su' apparently means 'number' and 'duoku' is a bachelor. If you know any different, then let us know!
In Japanese it is written sūdoku (数独). The characters mean "number" () and "single" (doku). It is pronounced like "sue dock". However, the word "sudoku" is not in common use for these puzzles in Japan, and the word sūdoku is actually an invention.

Animal waste threatens water

To the editor,
Last weekend the drinking water of 400,000 Toledo, Ohio, residents was fouled by animal waste.
With unfettered growth of animal agriculture and ineffective discharge regulations, it will happen again in our own state.
The problem has become pervasive. Waste from chicken farms has rendered the ocean off the East Coast unfit for fishing.
Waste from Midwest cattle ranches carried by Mississippi River has created a permanent “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico larger than that of the infamous 2010 BP oil spill.
Animal agriculture dumps more pollution to our waterways than all other human activities combined.
Principal pollutants are animal manure, fertilizers, as well as soil particles, organic debris, and pesticides from feed cropland.
Manure and fertilizers promote growth of toxic algae that poison drinking water supplies.
Organic matter feeds microorganisms that deplete oxygen and kill fish.
Effective regulations to limit dumping of animal waste into water supplies have been blocked by the meat industry.
Fortunately, every one of us has the power to stop this outrage three times a day by saying “no” to polluting meat and dairy products.
Our local supermarket offers ample alternatives.
Entering “live vegan” in a search engine provides useful recipes and transition tips.

Addressing climate change starts at home, supermarket

Posted: Wednesday, November 5, 2014 9:16 am
Recently, hundreds of thousands marched throughout the world demanding action on climate change.
Some 120 world leaders gathered in New York for the United Nations’ Summit on Climate Change.
What can we do?
A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat production accounts for 18 percent of manmade greenhouse gases.
A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested that the contribution may be closer to 50 percent.
The meat industry generates carbon dioxide by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to confine, feed, transport, and slaughter animals.
The much more damaging methane and nitrous oxide are discharged from digestive tracts of cattle and from animal waste cesspools, respectively.
In an environmentally sustainable world, wind, solar, and other pollution-free energy sources must gradually replace polluting fossil fuels.
Similarly, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains must replace polluting meat and dairy products.
The large variety of widely available plant-based entrees, lunch meats, veggie burgers, cheeses, and ice creams can certainly help.
Our next trip to the supermarket is a great opportunity to start the transition to a sustainable world.
Our favorite Internet search engine offers ample product lists, recipes, and dietary tips.
