By SAMMY WAWERU More by this Author Having worked with the Ministry of Agriculture as a field officer for over 10 years, Hesbon Asava gained immense knowledge on farming.In his line of duty, Asava traversed different parts of the country, mingling with farmers as he addressed their challenges.He quit in 1992 and went into horticultural farming at his home in Kasienya, Vihiga County.“I started farming fruits, vegetables like collard greens (sukuma wiki), cabbages, spinach, tomatoes and poultry,” says Asava, who ploughed Sh120,000 into the business and also kept dairy cows.All was well with poultry until 2013, when Asava, 66, who was then keeping over 500 birds, decided to quit due to high cost of production. "It was a job in futility because I would buy feeds expensively but the price of eggs could not match my efforts. Besides feeds, there were also expenses associated with treatment,” he says.

This piece was originally published by the Brookings Institution. See the interactive version on the Brookings Institution website.The Nuclear Science and Engineering Library at MIT is not a place where most people would go to unwind. It's filled with journals that have articles with titles like "Longitudinal double-spin asymmetry of electrons from heavy flavor decays in polarized p + p collisions at [square root symbol]s = 200 GeV."But nuclear engineering Ph.D. candidates relax in ways all their own. In the winter of 2009, two of those candidates, Leslie Dewan and Mark Massie, were studying for their qualifying exams—a brutal rite of passage—and had a serious need to decompress.To clear their heads after long days and nights of reviewing neutron transport, the mathematics behind thermohydraulics, and other such subjects, they browsed through the crinkled pages of journals from the first days of their industry—the glory days.Reading articles by scientists working in … [Read more...] about Back to the Future: Can Nuclear Energy Save the World?
