It’s that time of the year again – only that this year has been very different from what we have known. I hope you and your loved ones have made it safe through the year and that you can enjoy the Christmas holiday and celebrate some positive things. To all the visitors, friends and contributors – have a Merry Christmas and a safe start into the new year. For the site’s last update of the year, I have compiled a batch of missing magazine scans, inlcuding some fantastic cover stories. A full list of updates is below, with many thanks to Alvaro for his contributions. See you all in 2021.

The Curt Bergfors Food Planet Prize was established to find, recognize, and support initiatives and projects that can help us shift to resilient food systems and achieve food security already within this decade. This inaugural year, we received 650+ nominations, illustrating a diverse global community devoted to re-imagining food in all its complexity. Reshaping the food system requires an abundance of ingenious ideas and a broad range of approaches and solutions, some of them disruptive enough to radically cut through value chains and confront current perceptions of what food can be – and how it can be sourced. The challenge is global, this is why the solutions must have the potential to scale, preferably globally. To make it happen requires political will, ample funding, and consumers taking responsibility. It requires insight, and it will take courage. The prizewinners – and finalists – represent some of the many areas we need to explore to save the Food Planet. Responding to the ever-louder emergency calls from both People and Planet, the Curt Bergfors Foundation is doubling its stake in the rescue mission. This year, we’re awarding four – instead of two – US $1 Million prizes. At the recommendation of the Food Planet Prize Jury, one of the Prizes will be shared as the two recipients already collaborate on a key area: alternative sourcing of food and feed.

Sarah Cooper’s new comedy special on Netflix includes a skit in which she and Helen Mirren parody Donald Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood tape. In 2016, an Access Hollywood outtake from 2005 resurfaced, in which the future president boasted about his ability to sexually harass and assault women, saying: “Grab them by the p***y.” The show’s co-host Billy Bush could be heard laughing along. In the new Netflix special, Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine, Cooper offers an “exclusive look” at Trump and Bush’s conversation. The skit sees Cooper lip-sync the role of Trump, while Bush is played by Mirren. In a review for Vanity Fair, Yohana Desta said Mirren “gamely embodies the weaselly Bush, egging Trump on”. The LA Times’s Robert Lloyd, meanwhile, called the re-enactment “somehow even more disturbing than the real thing”. Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine is out now on Netflix.
