    Organic Valley Chief Operating Officer George Siemon stands for a portrait after winning the business leader category of Natural Resources Defense Council's 2012 Growing Green Awards in San Francisco, California May 16, 2012. Siemon's latest idea - milk from cows that primarily eat grasses, but never corn, soybeans or other supplemental grains commonly fed to dairy and beef cattle - was launched in April and is available in 200 stores in six western U.S. states. The milk has an earthy flavor that is a twist for the milk market. To match Interview USA-FOOD/ORGANIC REUTERS/Stephen Lam (UNITED STATES - Tags: BUSINESS AGRICULTURE ENVIRONMENT HEADSHOT PORTRAIT)

    FILE - In this Thursday, April 12, 2012 file photo, Kim Yong Nam, President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea, claps as he attends the World Congress on the Juche Idea in Pyongyang, North Korea. Kim arrived in Singapore Friday, May 11, 2012 and heads to Indonesia for his first reported trip overseas since late leader Kim Jong Il's death. The weeklong journey comes on the heels of new U.N. sanctions imposed on North Korea for launching a long-range rocket in April in defiance of Security Council resolutions banning the country from nuclear or ballistic missile activity. Now, North Korea is looking to diversify its trade, import natural resources and export consumer goods with Southeast Asia's help. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan, File)
