Long DescriptionNathaniel Tarn's magnificent new collection of poems Ins and Outs of the Forest Rivers reverberates like a trumpet blast to the present generation. His book opens with a majestic prelude ( as if this moment were ageless and could always return ) and is followed by four sections: Of the Perfected Angels , with its moving meditation on the Issenheim altarpiece by Matthias Grünewald; Dying Trees , written out of the loss of thousands and thousands of trees throughout the American West in recent years; War Stills , an engagement with the ongoing atrocities in Iraq; and the final section, Movement/The North of The Java Sea , that snakes its way through the rivers and the indigenous anguish of Borneo, where Tarn as poet-anthropologist surveyed the loss of forest lands and its effects on tribal peoples. Reflective, conversational, at times humorous, and always profound, Ins and Outs of the Forest Rivers is Tarn's most compelling collection to date.

For a couple months, we have been working on a major revamp of the database. All the existing data will be saved of course but many new data elements will be created.

People have been asking for the ability to track nutritional information, ingredients and other data items related to various products.

To this point, we have not been able to track that information because of a limit imposed by the database layout. Adding these new fields would be very hard.

We have finally gotten the database into the correct shape for the new fields and many many more in the future. We will be able to track just about any type of data item for any given product type.

It may be a few more months before the input screens catch up to the database changes. We want the user interface to be smooth and easy to use. Using feedback we have already received about the current site we will be making changes to the input process.

We also need to take into account the existing applications that are using the existing data feed and we will also need to create a new updated data feed for people moving forward.

In short, big changes are coming now that the database has been revamped but all the existing functions will continue to work without interuption.
