'SHODEO' presented a full range of rodeo events. We booked the organization in Northeastern Pennsylvania in the summer of 1993,...

African Land Grab: Acres for a Bottle of Scotch By Bruce Krasting Jun 11, 2011, 9:19 AM Author's Website Everyone who eats is aware that agricultural prices have been on a tear the past few years. With this has come a sharp increase in the value of arable land. Deep topsoil farmland in Iowa has changed hands as high as $11,000 an acre recently. That’s up from about $6,000 just a few years ago. The shortage of arable land has gone global. Africa has seen an explosion of activity since 2008.
