    19-year-old Derrik Sweeney is relieved to be home in Jefferson City after being detained for a week in a Cairo holding cell. Sweeney, along with three other Americans, was arrested for allegedly throwing fire bombs at police during a protest in Tahrir Square. Sweeney said they were threatened violently and beaten by Egyptian authorities.

    However, Sweeney is now back safely in Jefferson City and spent Sunday night celebrating Thanksgiving with his family.

    "Just being at home and seeing familiar things – and of course my family – it’s an overwhelming peace," he said.

    Natural questions about meat labels

    Meat that’s raised with antibiotics, growth promoters, and fed animal by-products could be labeled “Natural” under the current USDA definition of the term. That’s because the label only refer to how the meat was processed after slaughter.
    Kathleen Masterson Harvest Public Media

    At a grocery store in Ames, Iowa, Lavern Ackerman peered at a package of ground beef.  He was mostly interested in the percent leanness, but he took a stab at deciphering what the big "Natural" sticker on the package meant.
