Dough

Although it’s impossible to trace the exact date of the first slang usage of “dough” as a term for money, it seems to have originated in the 19th century. Since bread was the traditional everyday necessity of life, to earn one’s living was to earn one’s bread, therefore bread became synonymous with money. On some unknown day, an individual whose identity is lost to historians simply substituted the word dough, and a new slang term came into use.

The referendum follows a citizens’ initiative launched by Coaliția pentru Familie (the Coalition for Family) in late 2015, which gathered over three million signatures in support of the referendum, substantially more than the 500,000 required to initiate a constitutional amendment referendum.[…]

This referendum is a shameless exercise of political opportunism.

Bread on Earth

Lexie Smith – Bread on Earth
Queens, NY

Bread on Earth is a publishing platform supporting the diverse dialogues that stem from our relationship to grain, in Lexie’s words: “I research bread and write about it. I also place it into non-traditional visual contexts as a means of calling attention, catalysing diverse dialogues. I occasionally make bread into sculptures and photographs, and am building a website and community surrounding it. That initiative is called: Bread on Earth”
