Iceland Serves Up Road Salt for Dinner

Iceland has a big issue at hand at the moment. “Salt” And it is not about the kind that we sprinkle on food, but the one that we sprinkle on roads to stop the cars from sliding around the ice. But maybe it is both. It seems Icelanders have been seasoning their food with industrial or road salt for about 13 years, without realizing it. Anchor Marco Werman talks to Thora Arnorsdottir, a news editor at Icelandic National Broadcasting in Reykjavík. She has been covering the salt scandal.

The Takeaway: Soul Queen Sharon Jones On New Year's Performances

Having trouble deciding what to do tonight to ring in the new year? If you'll be around New York City, you may want to grab tickets to see Sharon Jones perform, two nights, at New York’s Best Buy Theater. At the beginning of this decade Jones was a Rikers Island prison guard. That all changed after she met bassist Gabriel Roth. The two founded a group called Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings; and today, nearly ten years later, the group has recorded hit records with Amy Winehouse, Sharon has toured the world with Lou Reed, and the Dap-Kings are widely lauded throughout the music industry for their magical ability to recreate the sound and soul of the 1960’s.

Slate’s Annie Lowrey says that retailers use your browsing history, your purchase history, and even your browser type to guess how deep your pockets are.'

On the Media - Turning Down Loud Commercials [12/17/2010]

'For decades, the FCC has been fielding complaints about the drastic volume change between television shows and the commercials around them. Up until now, their only solution was to recommend that viewers use the mute button when a loud commercial comes on. The Wall Street Journal’s Elizabeth Williamson says all that will change now that Congress has passed new legislation to regulate the volume of commercials.'
