Want BBQ mango wings with a side of pudding? Look no further than the streets of Los Angeles. Craving bacon-topped waffles? New York's got them. Haven't tried Korean BBQ tacos yet? Get on it. They're quickly approaching "so 2009" status.


From coast to coast, food trucks are reinventing what and how Americans eat. In the process, they're mashing up our culinary traditions to create some of the wackiest and most delicious combinations we've eaten in years.

Have food truck entrepreneurs used up all the best ideas already? Or do you have a fresh concept for a food truck you'd be willing to wait in line for? In the spirit of unbridled food truck creativity, our latest GOOD Project wants to know: What would your fantasy food truck be?

Like any food truck, your dream truck needs to have a cool concept and signature dish. What would you call it? What would it serve? We'll compile the best ideas into a slideshow format, and the GOOD community will vote to choose their favorite.

the THEME

The food truck revolution is sweeping American cities. What's your food truck fantasy?

the OBJECTIVE

We want to see what's missing from the mobile culinary landscape. Dream up a concept for a food truck that doesn't exist yet. Name your truck and explain the concept. Then, cook up the signature dish and take a photo. If you're culinarily challenged, you can draw or graphically represent your signature dish.

the REQUIREMENTS

Send an e-mail to projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with your submission. Submissions must include the following: 1) name of the truck, 2) a few sentences describing the concept, and 3) an image of the signature dish. It can be in any image format, but it should be high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. We’ll take submissions now through October 24.

Once we receive the images, we will turn to you, the GOOD community, to choose the winning submission by voting. We'll publish a Picture Show with a selection of the best submissions on October 27, and we'll accept voting through November 3. The winning entry will be announced in early November and featured on our homepage. The winner will also receive a GOOD T-shirt and a free subscription (or gift subscription).

Between Alexa, Siri, and Google, artificial intelligence is quickly changing us and the way we live. We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

An anonymous White House official claims President Trump cruelly limited Hispanic immigrants in their new book, "A Warning."

The book, to be released on November 19, gives an alleged insider account of the Trump White House and paints a picture of the president as a chaotic man who lacks the mental and moral acumen required for the job.

The anonymous staffer says that Trump once feigned a Hispanic accent and made fun of women attempting to immigrate to the U.S.

The 63-year-old Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, currently branded the RingCentral Coliseum, is one of the most decrepit sports venues in America.

The home to the the NFL's Oakland Raiders (until they move to Las Vegas next season) and MLB's A's, is notoriously known as the Black Hole and has made headlines for its frequent flooding and sewage issues.

One of the stadium's few positive aspects is its connection to public transportation.

Yad Vashem

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."

An image she posted to the social network shows a smiling Dayss wearing a baby carrier featuring a small skeleton. "Going to a costume party tonight as Karen and her non-vaccinated child," the caption over the image reads.
