How Rice Makes People Cooperative

Psychologists have noticed that Easterners tend to be more cooperative than Westerners, who are more likely to be individualistic. Experts now believe this difference might have to do with the cultivation of different grains. Growing rice is a group effort and requires all farmers to flood and drain fields at the same time. Crops like wheat and corn don't require an irrigation system, so they can be grown without any collaboration. It seems that growing rice fosters cooperation, while growing wheat cultivates more independence and self-reliance.

App Helps Sell Leftover Food.

Restaurants aren't allowed to give away leftovers at the end of the day, which creates nearly 133 billion pounds of food waste, according to the USDA. However, a new start-up has created an app called PareUp that allows restaurants to connect with customers looking to buy leftovers at discounted prices. The app will launch this fall.
