Marguerite Ragnow is the Editor of Terrae Incognitae and curator at the James Ford Bell Library, University of Minnesota, USA. The Bell Library has a large collection of rare books, maps and manuscripts that focus on trade and cross-cultural interaction before ca. 1800. In this video, Marguerite introduces one of the library's Portolan charts. These are navigational maps made in the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries which were based on realistic descriptions of harbours and coasts and which recorded the accumulated experience and wisdom of generations of Mediterranean seafarers. The chart in the video includes all of Europe, extending to the Black and Red seas in the east, and shows Antilia at the western extreme. It was made by a Genoese cartographer, Albini de Canepa, and he indicates the Genoese trading stations in the Black Sea area.

Carcinogenicity and regulation of caramel colorings by Michael Jacobson, (Executive Director, Center for Science in Public Interest, USA), an article published in International Journal of Occupational and International Health (V.18.3), states that cola sold in California now contains little of the cancer-causing chemical 4- methylimidizole (4-MI). However research shows that alarming levels of the carcinogen are evident in soft drinks sold outside of the United States. The carcinogen is formed during production of the caramel coloring that is added to cola to give it its distinctive color. After tests were conducted by the Center for Science in Public Interest, USA (CSPI), the center recommended that the US Food and Drug Administration prohibit the use of ammoniated caramel coloring and provide a more accurate description of the ingredient on all product labeling nationwide. The State of California requires that cancer warnings be placed on any soft drinks with excessive levels of 4-MI, which could lead to a person ingesting over 30 micrograms (µg) of 4-MI in a day. Watch as author Michael Jacobson discusses how these tests conducted by the CSPI eventually lead to a lower level of toxicity in cola in 2012. The threat of warning labels forced the industry to look for alternative caramel-colorings.
