Dunn, 47, was convicted Saturday of three counts of attempted second degree murder for shooting at three of Davis’ friends who were all inside an SUV, but the jury hung on a first degree murder charge for Davis’ death. Dunn, who is white, has argued that he fired at Davis after the teen threatened him and raised a shotgun or something that looked like one after he asked the teens to turn down their rap music.

These global companies are buying the ingredients (corn, rice, wheat, cocoa, etc.) for food products on an enormous scale, but not from small farmers in the developing world who make up the majority of the world’s poor. rather than their counterparts in Ethiopia, Haiti or South Sudan. Thus, poor farmers lack dependable buyers that could give them fair prices and a consistent market, helping them and their families out of poverty. Given that subsistence farmers comprise 70 percent of the world’s poor, improving their income is our best strategy for reducing global poverty.
